Stansted Airport: is it in London?

London Stansted is not, as its name may suggest, located in London but lies in fact 30 miles north east of the capital’s centre, in Essex, only 3 miles from Bishop’s Stortford and 6 miles from Harlow.

What about taxis for getting to and from the airport?

A taxi between central London and Stansted may cost between £80 and £100 (significantly more for a VIP service) and will take about 1 hour 10 minutes, although much depends on the time of day and driving conditions on the M11. The shorter trip between Stansted and Cambridge is cheaper at around £60. Although a lot of companies will charge extra for anti-social hours this is not always the case, so do your homework before committing. You may also like to check that there is no charge for a delayed flight.

These are estimate prices for a trip between Stansted airport and London Bridge, SE London. Please note that not every taxi company will be able to provide you with the vehicles described in this table. Always enquire directly.

Is there a taxi rank at Stansted airport forecourt?

There is no taxi rank at Stansted so it is not possible just to take pot luck and queue for one. If, however, you have not pre-booked it is possible to make arrangements in the International Arrivals Hall at the appropriate desk.

Taxi vs. driving yourself and parking

When deciding whether or not to book a taxi or take your own car to the airport, it is worth bearing in mind that apart from the costs of parking, the long stay facilities involve a 15 minute transfer on the shuttle bus.

With many people choosing to fly with nothing but hand luggage, especially on many of the budget airlines, it is worth pointing this out to your taxi driver, as they may well build in half an hour or so to allow you to collect luggage from the carousel.

Meeting your taxi driver

Popular meeting points for taxi drivers include the Airport Information Desk (clearly marked near the Arrivals gate) although some companies will ask you to phone the driver on arrival to make arrangements and this can keep parking charges to a minimum.

Know the vehicles

Every possible type of vehicle is available for trips to and from Stansted. Depending on your requirements and budget, a range of vehicles could be offered. A Saloon car (i.e. VW Passat, Ford Mondeo or similar) will be able to comfortably take up to three passengers with three large suitcases (up to 20kg each). A people carrier on the other hand will take up to 5 passengers (plus 5 suitcases of 20kg each) or 6 passengers with their hand luggage only. It’s a perfect solution for a large group of friends heading off for a city break or a stag/hen party abroad with very little luggage.

If you fancy travelling in style or are a business traveller wanting to work on the journey you might like to consider a VIP taxi, commonly a Mercedes or BMW, driven by a uniformed chauffeur who will even carry your luggage into your house. Leather upholstery, Sat Nav, air conditioning and Wi Fi are the norm when paying for this sort of service. Drivers are also CRB cleared and discreet so that you should have no worries if making confidential business calls from the vehicle.

Taxis, minicabs – what’s the difference?

Most of us prefer to pre-book our travel to and from the airport but if not, then in theory at least, we would be able to flag down a taxi, whereas minicabs must in law be booked in advance. Both, however, have to meet certain regulations in order to be licensed and drivers of both classes of vehicle should be equally competent and reliable.

Taxi Meet and Greet Service

With some taxi firms you can arrange a Meet and Greet Service. A driver will wait for you in the arrivals area with your name (or your company’s name), whichever is more suitable. This service is preferred by business travellers, and also by first time visitors to the UK.

What happens to your taxi booking if your flight is delayed?

With technology allowing real-time checks of flight arrivals, many taxi firms will know your flight is delayed and will collect you at the new expected time of arrival. This usually means you will not incur any extra charges if your plane is delayed. Make sure you enquire with the taxi firm when making your booking if this is the case.

Frequent fliers, frequent taxi rides

Companies that book a higher level of taxi transfer services to and from Stansted are able to set up a corporate account, you would need to enquire with the taxi firm you prefer to use.

Child car seats / booster seats

Most taxi firms will be able to provide an age appropriate baby/child seat upon request, most likely this service will be free. Enquire with your taxi firm.

Does the taxi firm have to be located near Stansted?

No, you don’t need to find one based near Stansted. It’s a common mistake to think that passengers need to book with a taxi company close to the arrival point, but usually it’s not the case. If you are after a better deal, get a quote from several taxi firms and compare.
