Road vs Rail, Coach or Taxi
Driving to Luton Airport is a good option for a hassle-free start to your holiday. Those with heavy luggage, young children or reduced mobility will especially benefit from the ease and convenience of being able to work to your own timetable. A total of three on-airport parking car parks are available to book with Airparks, as well as our own off-airport car park which represents great value for money. Transfers between the car parks and the terminal are simple and free and your car will be parked securely for the duration of your trip, so Luton Airport Parking is easy with Airparks.
Other less convenient options include:
Rail Transport to Luton Airport
Travelling to Luton Airport by train from Central London involves catching either an East Midlands or First Capital Connect service to Luton Airport Parkway Station. The journey takes approximately 21-25 minutes. Luton Airport Parkway Station is located several miles from the terminal, meaning that you will need to catch a shuttle bus once you arrive at the station to transfer you to the airport. The shuttle bus runs every 10 minutes between 5am and midnight and takes around 5 minutes. Luton Airport Parkway Station can be reached from outside London and the same procedure applies.
Coach Transport to Luton Airport
Bus and coach services to Luton Airport include Greenline, National Express, EasyBus and Virgin. Most of these services operate to and from London as well as a selection of other towns and cities across the UK. Coach transport may be less expensive than driving yourself but make sure you leave plenty of time to catch your flight as the journey may take longer.
Taxi Transport to Luton Airport
Only three taxi companies operate tailored taxi services to and from Luton Airport. These are Alpha Taxis Luton, Cabco Taxis Luton and Luton Taxi Association. Taxis will pick you up and drop you outside the airport terminal. A great alternative if you are keen to maximise the efficiency of your journey is the Priority Parking Luton Meet and Greet service at Luton Airport that allows you to drive your own car to the terminal and have it parked by someone else while you head straight to the check-in area.
