Very effcient, quiet jurney There is not enough explanation regarding the difference between the two lines that start from terminal 4. I had to go out in terminal 2,3 and wait several min until the right train arrived

I was travelling from Heathrow to Paddington with my 4 year old son and 2 checked in suitcases and 2 smaller hand carry ones. We found the whole process so easy! We took our trolley with our bags right to the train. It was easy to scan our barcode and get in without any hassle. When we got off the train, there were trolleys (you have to pay £1) and the whole experience was so smooth! Best part is, the ticket was cheaper on headout and I got cash back too. Love it!

So simple - even an old fogey like me could navigate the booking system - help at the station was instantly available to direct me to the train and the train service was (as usual) on time and extremely rapid

Smooth ride. Only problem I had was that I had booked a ticket in the wrong direction. But it was easy to change it to another ticket. Well done.

I needed a wheelchair when I arrived at Paddington and both the on board express agent and the Heathrow agents were very concerned with making sure I received the help needed. I had allowed several hours before my flight so I was able to enjoy time in the British Airways lounge. However, as usual, the wheelchair attendant wasn't prompt enough to get me to the gate in a timely manner
