Net Safety Score
We’ve introduced a metric indicating how safe travellers feel when using our services during the COVID-19 pandemic. After every ride, we ask each traveller to leave a review.
20 minute gap between transfers
Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.
Regular Car Sanitisation
Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol
When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.
Sanitiser in every car
We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride

Directions for your London City airport transfer
London City Airport (LCY) is a small, one-runway international airport located just 11km east of London city centre. Your transfer from City airport to London shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes in a taxi. To begin your journey, you will take Hartmann Rd toward Camel Rd before turning right onto Connaught Rd/A112. Your driver will follow this road across two roundabouts before taking the exit onto N Woolwich Rd/A1020. Then, they will take the ramp to Lower Lea Crossing/A1020 before exiting onto Aspen Way/A1261. After a few km, your driver will then merge onto Tower Hill/A100 and follow this street into the city centre. From here, your driver will use the local roads to reach your hotel.
Why choose a London City airport taxi?
City airport is located quite close to the city centre of London, so taking a City airport taxi is quite affordable. It also means that you won’t need to navigate the busy public transport in London, putting your personal belongings at risk. Instead, you will make your way directly to your hotel in comfort.
London city airport taxi prices
The local black cab drivers at City airport don’t offer a flat-rate fee for the journey into the city centre of London, instead, they will charge you using a taximeter based on distance. Although there may be additional fees added for things such as waiting times, travelling at night or during major holidays, the average cost of this journey is €45 (£40). If you’d prefer a set-rate fee with no hidden costs, we recommend booking your London City airport taxi in advance with Welcome Pickups.
