I would like to know how to get from Stansted to Luton airports. Also, how to get to Northampton from Luton Airport.
I will be travelling between airports at about 8am. Also, if you could quote the costs, it would be really helpful!
Bus is the only direct way between airports.
I hope you have allowed plenty of time for your transfer, as you are travelling in the morning rush-hour and traffic can be very heavy on the Mll and M1.
You could get a train from Luton to Northampton. First you'll have to get the airport shuttle bus to Luton Airport Parkway station. www.nationalrail.co.uk will give you times and fares. Journey takes around 2 hours, with 2 changes (you will have to go into London and out again, stupid as it seems). One-way fare from 17.80 (but may be considerably more, depending on timings; it's a commuter route).
Alternatively (and a fare better option, imo) you could take a coach (long-distance bus). Takes around 1 hour 10 mins, one-way fares 13.90GBP. You would be sensible to book your ticket online in advance at www.nationalexpress.com
Thanks for the help. National Express looks the most convenient. :)
