Especially if youre loaded down with bags or travelling with young children.
National Express runs coaches into Doncaster, but from there you will have to take a taxi or bus to Doncaster Robin Hood Airport. A dedicated shuttle service, the 707, links Doncaster town centre to Robin Hood Airport and the journey only takes 25 minutes. An affordable option, but all that hopping on and off buses can make for a frustrating journey, especially when you have to do it all again in reverse when you arrive home.
