Your Experience

The trains are extremely well maintained, and the air-conditioned coaches will ensure that you have a relaxing ride. Trains are the most affordable option and are also the fastest mode of transport between the two locations. By train, you can reach Luton in just 40 minutes on average. By bus or car, the 55-kilometer journey can take anywhere between 60 minutes and 90 minutes, depending on the time of the day and traffic. During these peak hours, there will be six trains every hour. Throughout the night, there will be hourly services, allowing you to reach or leave the airport easily at any time of the day. When you reach the train station in Luton, a bus will take you to the airport terminal. The ride is quite short, taking only 7 to 8 minutes. Since transport is arranged all the way to the airport terminal, you can enjoy a convenient ride, especially if you are carrying a lot of luggage. Other modes of public transport will require you to have to traverse a significant distance by foot. A private cab is most comfortable, but is significantly more expensive than train. With various options, you can also book a return journey. First Class tickets are also available, allowing you to enjoy a more comfortable and quiet journey.
