What are my Options for Getting to the Airport?

There are many ways to get to the airport, though they are not all as relaxed, easy or reliable as one another. Whether you’re risking it with public transport, asking a mate for a favour or opting for an airport transportation service, here’s the ways you can get to the airport on time for your flight this summer.

Public Transport

If your flight is at a time that allows you to opt for buses and trains, it can be a quick, easy and relatively cheap way to get your family, and your luggage, to the airport. Try to book your public transport options in advance to help keep the costs low, and ensure you have a back up plan in the case of delays or cancellations. Whilst public transport is used by millions of people every single day, it is not the most reliable option, and for those who don’t want to stress, it should be avoided!


Using a local taxi service to take you to the airport can be a costly journey. Often when you leave things to the last minute, this may be the only option for you, so look at multiple businesses to see who can offer you the lowest price. Whilst ordering a taxi to take you to the airport may seem like a quick and easy option, they can be unreliable and have hidden fees.
