Taxi vs. Pick up service from Hotel from Liverpool Airport

There are 4 of us traveling together from Liverpool Airport during Beatle's Week in August.

Our friend's hotel (Hard Days Night) offers a 50 pound ride service which seems expensive but we were wondering how readily available a standard taxi would be at this busy time of year. I was told the car fare would be approximately 16 pounds to the HDN Hotel. Also considering the airport bus but again wonder if that would be extremely busy as well.

Thank you dear TA experts for any advice you care to share.

Sincerely,

Katie

£50 for a "car service" from JLA to the Hard Days Night Hotel.

Do you get a free glass of bubbly with that and your shoes polished?

What a rip-off!

If there are 4 of you then just get a black hackney cab from JLA. £16 sounds about right.

The Airlink 500 bus now costs about £3.00 single per person and will drop you off a 7 or 8 minute walk from the Hard Days Night hotel.

So just get the taxi which will take you door to door.

Really, £50 for a "car service"? AVOID!

For the sake of £12.50 each and a door-to-door service I would take the private transfer.In keeping with the style for the nouveau riche the Hard Days Night continues to promote.For the thousands of $ your holiday has cost each of you I wouldn't try to save a few £s on this.I wouldn't offer the same advice for UK residents.
