Airportr teams up with Gatwick Express
I have written about Airportr, the luggage courier service operating at Gatwick, Heathrow and City, before – I covered them in detail here.
The company has now teamed up with Gatwick Express to offer train customers a discount of £5 each way if they choose to let Airportr take the strain of getting their luggage from their home or office to the terminal, or vice versa.
I hope to be running a competition with Airportr in the next few days to give two readers a chance to try out their service for free.
