I'm off to Dubai in a couple of weeks and flying from Gatwick at 9.45. I'm in South Wales and working til 6pm the day before. I'm trying to work out the best way to do this...I think it's probably cheapest to get a train down the night before and stay in a hotel. Thing is, I can't work out how I'll get from the train station to the hotel! It'll be late too, train will get in at gone midnight. Other option is obviously one of those drive/park/fly deals of which there are hundreds.
Help! Has anyone had to do this before, what was the best hotel/best way to get there? Oh, it's only me - no kids or anything going.
