Question
hello david : i need to find the best taxi service at reasonable price between heathrow and a gatwick airport hotel.thanks

Answer
Hi Jerome

Perhaps the most reasonable way to transfer between the airports is using the coach/bus service. These are very frequent, comfortable, have luggage storage, and go directly between the airports.  Here is the link:

Once at Gatwick, I suspect you can take a connector bus to your hotel (it depends upon the hotel).

A true taxi service is very expensive between airports. A "mini-cab" car service will also be expensive. You might want to check with JustAirports.co.uk--a car service--to see what their costs would be for the transfer:

But this page from the Heathrow Airport website lists almost all the options for connections between the airports:

I hope this is helpful. If you need more information, contact me through All Experts or directly at mail@BeyondDowntonAbbey.com
