Traffic from Wembley stadium to Heathrow on a Friday morning

Jump to last reply

I have a 11:50am flight out of Heathrow (on Delta to Zurich) on Friday, March 14th. I am planning to stay the night before (1 night) at the Comfort Hotel Wembley. (for a variety of reasons primarily that I can get the hotel free on points and that it is convenient to the tube so I can get into Central London on the Thursday night to meet my brother for dinner).

I will have a rental car so should be able to shoot straight for the airport in the morning. Approximately how long should I allow to get to the airport?

We are experienced flyers and used to moving efficiently in airports (although this will be our first time in Heathrow). For domestic US flights, we usually arrive 1-1.5 hours before. We would like to be at the airport by 9:50am (2 hours before) and allow a half hour to drop off rental car and shuttle to airport - so be at rental car return by 9:20am.

Google maps shows a 30 minute drive. How much time should I allow (I'm sure there will be traffic). Leave hotel at 8:20am (60 min drive) or leave at 7:50am? (90 min drive)
