In common with the National Express Stansted/Luton route, the Luton to Gatwick option goes via Heathrow Airport. Unfortunately this is the long way round the M25 motorway adding some 40 miles to the overall distance. Still if your looking for a no-hassle way of transferring between the two airports the National Express coach is your only option with no changes. Beware however that some services advertised as an option on the National express website require a change of bus at Heathrow Airport. That option is the 787 that then becomes the 230, or the other way round if you start from Gatwick Airport. Only the 707 will take you from Luton Airport to Gatwick Airport with no changes, and of course the same vice versa. The usual warning applies to this journey about the possible congestion along the M25. Traffic is always heavy in the morning and evening rush hours on week days. All buses stop at Hemel Hempstead bus station on route.
If your looking for the fastest way to make the journey between airports then take a look at the Fist Capital Connect Rail Option.
