Apologies ... I know I read the answer, can't remember the details or hints

I know I have read the answer/suggestions to a similar scenario BUT for the life of me am unable to use the correct words to find the previous discussion with search. My apologies .... however I would truly appreciate your suggestions and information.

I arrive Heathrow Terminal 5 at approximately 11:30 after an overnight flight from the west coast of United States. . Meeting 2 women who arrive T1 at noon from Amsterdam. We are waiting for the 4th who arrives T1 at 1:30. The plan is to take a car service then to the rented flat. I will have a piece of checked luggage (for good reason - it has the other ladies clothes - longer story and I've no complaint about doing it.)

Looking at the maps of Heathrow it appears as though I have a choice of transportation options BUT I need to allow 1 hour to get from T1 to T5 - really? Does that time include getting luggage? finding the loo? using the bancomat? What would you suggest for transfer .... Silly me I thought I could walk between terminals ... I've been disabused of that notion.

The plan is for the 3 of us on the ground to gather at T5, along with the car service drivers, and snag the 4th as she enters the terminal from immigration. We all follow directions and will WAIT at the meeting point until ALL have arrived (I keep remembering janisj's story with the SCQ). Did I read the drivers are near a Costa Coffee?

The issue for me is expedient movement between T1 to T5 with a piece of luggage, 25" roller.... recommendations please.

Again, my apologies for requesting information I know you've shared before

Happy Travels,
