    need minbus/taxi from Birmingham to Luton airport 13th Mar 17 at 11:52 AM
    Hi does anybody know the cheapest taxi/minubus service (with a driver) for 7 of us to get from Birmingham to Luton airport please?

    Google seems to produces varied results and prices. Not sure who is reputable/reliable out of any other these firms and because we need to leave around 5am to catch out flight in Luton, i dont want anything going wrong.

    We will all have one standard sized cabin baggage each too.

    Anybody got any suggestions please?

    Thanks

    I don't, but have you thought about doing a Europcar £1 one way airport hire? You would need two cars but assuming 2 of you can drive and they have availability when you are going.

    Probably easier to price 2 cars.

    Leaving at 5am you might get a driver that's tired from the night shift.

    Thanks

    Problem is i dont think anybody will want to drive at 5am from our group either!

    That europacar £1 hire is crazy cheap, what's the catch with them?

    No catch. They need their cars back where they can rehire them. We have done it many times, nothing else, other than fuel to pay.

    Sounds like a great deal

    Is there any kind of cancellation fee policy? Say if we book 2 cars for £1 each today but then decide not to use them?

    (the reason i ask is because the airline has already cancelled our flight from Birmingham....which is the whole reason we are having to fly from Luton now!

    I wouldn't put it past these clowns to cancel this flight at some point in the future either!)
