Car Service from London Hotell to Heathrow

We are staying in South Kensington and got a quote of $30£ from hotel to Heathrow. This is for 2 people with 2 pieces of luggage and 2 pieces of hand luggage. Is this reasonable?

Flight is at 9:30 a.m. So do not want to use public transportation.

Suggestions appreciated.

£30 is reasonable

$30 is even more reasonable.

In our experience, (London, Paris, Rome) the car service prices that the hotels arrange are always cheaper than hailing a cab, and way more convenient.

Yes that sounds reasonable and suspect it's pounds; I would actually be leery of a $30 quote! We used JustAirports very satisfactorily from about there for about that price twice. Also quote MIGHT be per person. Get specifics but expect to pay about $50 I think for pre-arranged car service. A taxi would be more.

That seems very cheap for the typical hotel-arranged car service. So yes, do verify that is the total and not per person. £30 is what you'd pay justairports.com Often hotels use higher cost services. But if you confirm it actually is £30 total that's great.

Thanks for your help. In fact the quote is from justairports.com and I provided the pieces of luggage and the fact that there is 2 of us. I will confirm the the quote is for the two of us, I chose justairports.com because of the positive feedback I've read in this community,

If it is justairports - that is the correct amount. It is the total for the journey, not per person.
