Luton airport is located in north-west London, at a distance of 48 km. For this journey you can choose from several types of transport. EASYBUS buses are the cheapest option with early booking available over the internet. Tickets cost £2, with the maximum price of a return ticket being £15.
A return ticket with Terravision buses comes to £16.
The bus stops at Brent Cross, Baker Street (Underground Station), Marble Arch (Underground Station) and ends at London Victoria station. On the same route, buses also run the Green Line. The bus ride to Victoria Station takes 1 hour and CTVT.
Another possibility, but not so financially attractive is to use the Luton Flyer train connection to the city for the price of £12.50 one way and £22.50 for a return ticket. The railway station is at the airport so you need to commute on the airport shuttle bus. After a 30-minute journey, you’ll arrive at St. Pancras station. From there, you can travel further via underground transport. The whole journey from the plane to Oxford Circus will take approximately two hours.
The tariff for taxis and other transportation of a similar type are exactly the same as at other airports. So at this point we do not recommend the use of official black cabs. If you have a larger group then it might be worth hiring a chequered car. Arrival time in London by car is approximately one hour and twenty minutes; depending on the traffic and the sort of day.
If you plan to hire a chequered car, then you should always book it in advance. This way you know you have a secure ride that is waiting for you at the airport, without having to worry about other forms of transportation if one is not available. This will also allow you to find out the average price that it is going to cost, so you won’t have any surprises on the day. If you are travelling in a larger group, this will also save you a lot of money in the long run so you know you can enjoy your trip without any worries.
