Why you should get an Airport Transfer

Airports are usually located far away from the convenience of city centres. For smaller regional airports, there could even be a lack of public transport too. Airport transfers will pick you up from your home and take you directly to your departure terminal. They are chauffeured by professional drivers who are friendly and knowledgeable, to ensure the best possible start to your trip. You can also arrange for airport transfers to take you from the airport to your hotel once you arrive at your destination, as well as to bring you back home once you land. Many airport transfer companies also serve seaports too.

What changes the cost of an Airport Transfer service? 

There is a lot to consider when choosing your airport transfer. Here at the top points to keep in mind when you are working out the costs involved: 

  • Destination 

  • Your location 

  • Party size 

  • Vehicle type 

  • Timing 

  • The amount of luggage you have 


The cost of airport transfers varies dramatically depending on your location, the destination, and the vehicle type. Airport transfers to Belfast International Airport from Lisburn ranked as the cheapest overall in the UK of the routes we studied. 

Unsurprisingly, London is the most expensive part of the UK to get airport transport from. However, this also factors in the congestion charge which applies to drivers in London. 

Type of airport transfer (4 seater vehicle)Highest average price Lowest average price

Derby - East Midlands Airport£44£38
Salford - Manchester Airport£58£47
Cardiff - Cardiff Airport£82£17

Your location

It’s not always the case that you will be flying from a local airport. The further you are away from the airport, the more your airport transfer will be.

Party size

The more people you have in your party, the larger the vehicle will need to be. If there are more than 6 in your party, then switching to a minibus transfer rather than separate cars, will be better valued. Keep in mind that there needs to be room for everyone’s luggage in the vehicle too. 

Vehicle type 

Airport transfers come in all shapes and sizes, from sleek Mercedes to a coach that the entire family could fit into. Luxury vehicles come at a premium but are the best way to start your holiday in style. Usually, airport transfer companies will price their vehicles accordingly before you book so you can make the best decision based on your budget.


It’s important to leave as much time as possible between leaving and when you need to be at the airport. The driver will want to be aware of the time, as well as your expected flight arrival time when you get back. There may be additional fees for travelling at peak times, especially for London-based airports. 

Is it worth getting an Airport Transfer?

While holidays are supposed to relax us, the build-up including the journey to the airport can be anything but. Being stuck in traffic, missing your train connection, or simply not leaving enough time for the journey can all create unnecessary stress. Plus if you are returning after a long flight you might not even be in a fit state to drive safely. With an airport transfer, all of that hassle is taken care of for you. You’ll be taken straight to your terminal or delivered back home depending on whether you are arriving or departing. Airport transfers make for the ideal start to any holiday or business trip and so are highly recommended.
