Should I go shuttle bus or private?

Both our shuttle and private services will ensure you make it to your destination of choice comfortably, but there are a few differences between the two. Depending on your priorities, one will likely suit your needs better than the other.

Shuttle bus

Our Luton Airport transfer buses are the best bet for those looking for a cheap travel solution. You will be sharing the journey with other passengers, which means the bus will stop at numerous drop-off points along the route. You may have to wait up to 45 minutes to set off, this is to allow other passengers to arrive in time. The shuttle is, however, the most cost-effective solution.

Private transfer

If you value speed of service and privacy, then our private Luton Airport transfers are the right choice. No waiting around, instead you will have a departure time tailored to your schedule. The taxi will head straight to your drop-off, with no other parties on board. For a direct solution, choose one of our private options.
