We are planning to hire a car and drive from Burton on Trent to Gathwick Airport on 19 Sept (Monday) to catch our flight. Our flight is 5:30pm. Travel time I gathered is about 3 hours.
We are not familiar with traffic on a Monday afternoon when we expect to arrive in London between 2:00-2:30pm.
We are thinking of dropping off the car before reaching London proper and then take the train to the airport. To avoid traffic if there is. Is this a good idea? or just continue with the car?
Thanks for any suggestions.
