Luton Airport Taxi Rank

Speech Quote: The Luton airport taxi rank is outside the front of the terminal

Find the Luton Airport taxi rank outside the front of the terminal. It is well sign posted, so keep your eyes peeled for the airport pick up and drop off signs. Only licensed hackney carriages are allowed to pick up at Luton’s taxi rank. If you want to hire a private hire vehicle, or minicab as they are often known as, this must be pre-booked by phone or in person at the operator’s office.

If you do go with a private hire company, we recommend using one of firms at the top of this page.

Minicabs at the airport are licensed by Luton Borough Council and the vehicles have to pass a stringent test to ensure that they are roadworthy and in an immaculate state cosmetically. The appropriate yellow plate must be displayed inside and outside and the driver must have photo ID at all times.

Luton Taxi Services

Luton airport is a popular choice for many travellers and has made a name for itself amongst fans of the television series, Airline, which follows the working lives of Easyjet employees at the airport.

It is London’s fourth largest airport and, as well as being a hub for Easyjet, is also used by Monarch and Ryanair. Most passengers use it for European or domestic flights although there are also intercontinental routes. Rather confusingly, London Luton Airport is actually 30 miles north of London in Bedfordshire.

Luton Taxi Tips

Luton is said to have the highest ratio of taxis to residents in the UK so, whatever your requirement, big or small, it should be possible to arrange.

Speech quote: there's only one terminal at Luton Airport so don't worry about where to meet your taxi driver

There is only one terminal at Luton airport so there is no need to worry about telling your driver where to go. There is a clearly marked Meeting Point for arrivals and passenger pick up which can be easily accessed through the walkway from the main terminal building.

It might be cheaper to open a tab or account with the taxi firm, it’s always worth asking before you book. If you are a business traveller or a frequent flyer, you may find it convenient to open an account with your taxi firm of choice. Each journey then just needs to be signed for and an account is presented at the end of each month.

Pre-order any luton airport taxis with child seats and baby seats in advance. The law about using child and baby seats in cars doesn’t actually extend to taxis. The ruling is that if the taxi or private-hire cab does not offer a child seat, then you may travel so long as the child is using a seat belt and in one of the rear seats. It’s been advised that under 3’s should have a car-seat but since they won’t fit adult seat-belts, it’s not a legal requirement but something to bare in mind when travelling around Luton. See the Government Guidelines on child and baby seats.

For safety reasons (especially on long journeys) you may want to request a child seat in advance anyway. Many airport taxi companies offer these extra services but it’s always best to check with your provider in advance.

Speech quote: Confirm your pick up point at Luton Airport with your taxi in advance

Arrange a pick up point in advance. Some Luton taxi companies will have their own preferred pick up points which they will tell you about when you book. If they meet you in the car park you will normally be liable to pay the parking charge but, compared to airports such as Heathrow, these charges are very reasonable.

Since you’re in London, another charge to factor in is the London congestion charge. Although taxi companies are usually exempt from this charge, it’s worth checking with your company whether you will be charged to avoid any nasty surprises.

Make sure to request any extra services in advance – from choice of car to choice of driver. If you would like a bespoke luxury service there should be no problem arranging for this at Luton Airport. Some companies will supply newspapers and bottled water, will valet the vehicles on a daily basis and ensure their drivers undergo an annual medical. Cars used are normally Mercedes and BMWs or similar with leather upholstery, air conditioning and Sat Nav systems.

Most companies allow you to request a male/ female driver. If you are a woman travelling on your own and, for reasons of religion or personal preference, would like a female driver this should also be easy to arrange in advance.
