I'm sure you have it all figured out. Lucky kids! When my daughter was 18 and had never even been on a plane she and her best friend went all over Europe. Her favorite city was London. She went back for a visit two years later and never left! She is now a director at the world's most prestigious news agency.
Now lucky us. We get to visit.

It's more conveinent for everyone to have the kids hop in a cab. At 18 someone should be able to give an address to a cab driver.

Why should the grandparents meet them?

It sounds like you have your plan, but just in case: "It's more conveinent for everyone to have the kids hop in a cab"

That is a bad idea/expensive proposition. Not only would a car service be much less expensive, it would be easier than a taxi because the driver would already know the address where they are going . . .

Good point janisj. I just thought it would be more convenient than having the grandparents go down to the airport.

Car service would be the way to go. In my city they aren't that much more than a taxi.

LSky: >>In my city they aren't that much more than a taxi.<<

The main reason we recommend them in London (and other major UK cities) is that car services are generally much less expensive than proper cabs. I do take cabs in London, but never in from any of the airports.
