Which transfer between Stansted airport and London?

Located more than 60 miles from London, Stansted Airport is the city's furthest airport. It is not always easy to know which is the most economical or fast means of transport to make your transfer. Here is a presentation and a comparison for each means of transport, with practical information and advice on making the right choice according to your priorities.

The taxi or black-cab

Make your transfer in taxi or black-cab, from Stanstead Airport to central London is the easiest solution.

Indeed, they are easily spotted at the exit of the terminals, available and do not require a reservation.


The Sixt ride mini-cabs



The mini-cabs are a good alternative to taxis because they are cheaper and with a similar service! The only difference is that reservations are required on the company's website. Therefore, you cannot hail a mini-cab!
