Taxi from Heathrow to Dorchester

Hi, my sister and I are arriving in Heathrow in early September, and have decided if possible to hire a cab to take us from the airport to Dorchester in Dorset. I've looked at a couple of cab sites, and then read reviews of them here on TripAdvisor, which were pretty awful. Does anyone know of a good, reliable service we could use?

Thanks!

Dorchester is a long way by taxi, even one that has come up from Dorset to meet you.

You could take the Raliair coach to Woking and a train to Dorchester for much less money.

Arriving after a longhaul, the coach/train means one or two changes, firstly at Woking then possibly Bournemouth. You could get a quote from Crossways Cars 01305 854719, who are a good local taxi company.

Why don't you take the South west train, it costs about £7.50 at the cheapest each. I'm looking to send my son from near Heathrow in August and that's the results I found.

Hi, I know this is quite late in replying to your post, but did you eventually find a reliable taxi firm? I ask because me and my girlfriend are also needing to get to Dorchester from the airport very quickly. P. S was it worth it when you got there?
