Luton Airport Taxis Reviews
I booked 1ST Airport Taxis after trawling the web looking for a good deal, especially as we needed collecting at 05:00 to go to Luton, and then arriving back at 23:30! Most companies quoted about £50+ for the night collection.
I’m very sceptical about local taxis until I booked these guys. I travelled with my family, booked the 8-seater. I’d rate the overall experience 9/10. Cheers.
