There are regular train services from Glasgow Central to Prestwick Airport and fares are very affordable, especially if you book in advance, but again, if youre travelling with young children or loaded down with bags, the pushing and shoving on platforms can be stressful and inconvenient. Of course you may also be travelling to Prestwick Airport from another part of Scotland or from the north of England, which means even more rail transfers.
National Express operate frequent coach services to Glasgow City from all over the UK and from there you can take a bus or taxi to Prestwick Airport. Again, this involves a lot of hopping on and hopping off and thats just the start of the journey. Dont forget that you have to do the same journey in reverse when heading home. What seemed like a small inconvenience when you were flying out becomes a huge headache when youre jetlagged, tired and anxious to get home.
There are over 200 taxi companies in the region and many offer good fares to Prestwick Airport. In terms of convenience, this is probably the next best thing to taking your own car. But when the taxi arrives at the door, you must be ready to go. Taking your own car means you can load in the likes of heavy bags or push chairs hours before you need to go. Its also a mobile storage unit. If you decide at the last minute not to take something on the flight, you can just leave it safe and secure in the boot.
