Here we have compiled your complete guide to getting to the airport via transfer or public transport, especially if you haven't been in a while or if you're now carrying extra luggage that doesn't go in the boot. We have answered all the questions that we could think of and added things that may be helpful to you for your trip
The first thing is obviously getting to the airport in which you have a few options:
Once dropped off (usually at the airport assigned area) you must navigate through the ever changing car park and enterance layouts to find your bag drop or the security gate. This can be challenging for a lot of people so we have a regularly updated layout and guide to each UK airport which you can download for free.
You can book your taxi at any time, we can get you a car within minutes although the longer you give us the better vehicle and driver we can allocate. When to get there? This depends on what your plan is - usually airports want you there as early as possible for commerical reasons as well as logistic. Many requent flyers are well aware of this and book our taxis so they get to the airport an hour within their scheduled flight time (not gate time). We do not recommend this, on average clearling security will take around 20-40 minutes so an hour before your gate closure time or half an hour before your bag drop time is sufficient. Others prefer to spend time at the airport, grab a coffee or have some lunch for which you will obviously need to arrive earlier for.
Yes! Athough children under the age of 3 may sit on an adults lap and any older must wear a seatbelt, these are the exceptions for taxis; we dont' recommend this and you can find our guidance with free car seat storage information here, you can also read the .gov official guidance .

Most companies are third party booking agents that take your booking but pass the job on to local
companies and of course charge you a premium. The problem is yo don't know the company they will pass
your booking on to; most are not vetted and may not be reliable as well as there being no
accountability (you can't call these companies if your taxi doesn't arrive they will tell you to
contact the booking agent).
We offer all payment methods be it cash or card with instantly emailed invoices at no extra cost.
The best and closest airport to Bedford has to be London Luton Airport, especially if you're travelling from Europe; it's approximately 28 miles from Bedford and we can usually have a car there in around 30 minutes. London Heathrow is second at around 57 miles away and obviously have more flight destinations that London Luton, but not by much. Second to last would be Stansted airport which is 54 miles from Bedford and although closer in distance is further in time. Lastly would be Gatwick airport the cost and time taken to get to this airport from Bedford is almost double that of the other airports. There are also Birmingham, London City but the ones listed here are the most popular.
If you’re going with a group or with lots of luggage, your best option is a minibus (even compared to public transport). Most minibuses can take 5-8 passengers and all your luggage including your skis and snowboards, the larger minibuses are subject to availability but are still there. More info on minibuses
So many of you travel for business or need important clients collecting. We send your airport taxi early for these bookings at no extra cost. This means your executive car will be waiting for you earlier than standard bookings. Our business clients usually fly through customs and often only have hold luggage so the taxi is will be waiting at the airport at landing time. You can also upgrade your airport taxi to an executive service and pay on any company card (including American Express) with your invoice emailed to you instantly. If it’s a regular booking and need to open an account that’s also possible.
