So with a flight booked to Lanzarote for a summer holiday at the beginning of July, the family had the usual dilemma of how to get to the Airport. With 4 in the family, the options consisted of ….
1. Friend Drive Family’s Car – See if a friend could drive their own car to the Airport and back. It sounds an easy solution but with the flight at 1:20pm on a Tuesday the friend would need to be not working or take a day’s holiday and then be insured for driving – This solution is beginning to sound complicated.
2. Friends gives lift in his/her car – So this looked an easy option but again friend needs to take a day of work, have enough space for luggage and then pick up the family on the return flight about 11:30pm. Yes, this could work but still some complications.
3. Stansted Express – Another seemingly good option but the family live in two areas and are not that close to a station. So this would mean transport to the station and then train journeys to Liverpool Street Station before catching the Stansted Express. The costs soon add up and then there is the time involved in ensuring sufficient time is allowed for all journeys. Not such a good way after all.
4. London Black Taxi to Stansted – The family call us and arrange a pick up time on the Tuesday morning. The Taxi arrives in plenty of time for the journey to Stansted. There is plenty of room for luggage and with air conditioning in the taxi the family relax with the travelling stress taken away. The family arrive at Stansted Airport on time and feeling fresh and ready for their flights. This really is a fabulous way to start your holiday and the cost is affordable and competitive too compared to other choices. Everyone is a winner!
