Around £20 should be about right,agree a fare with the driver.

There is a taxi rank across the road from front of station.

Journey time about 20 minutes.

Hi, Kenko is right with the £20 mark as all drivers operate a fixed fare to the airport of around that so there is no need to haggle, the Airport bus is £4.20 each so with 4 of you it is worth it it to take a taxi, there is a new easier drop off system now in operation at the airport following the temporary measures introduced after the attack a couple of years ago.

why take a taxi when u can get the train to paisley in ten minutes and then a bus which might take you another ten

buy a train ticket to GLASGOW AIRPORT and then take the train to paisley gilmour street

there is a bus which will meet you there and take you to the airport and this is included in the price of your rail ticket!

Hm!! all very well if you are on a budget, but 1 hour to get to the airport and that is assuming your train up from Cumbria is on time it is a bit tight, there are about 7 trains an hour between Central and Paisley so it is feasible but a closed check-in and refused boarding/missed flight for the sake of £5 per person, would'nt be me!

I would imagine because it is less hassle.

Just a thought, if you're intending getting a taxi from the airport back to the station on a return journey, call for the taxi, 0141 429 7070, it will be the same taxi from the rank, which swings round to pick you up at the station entrance, but because you're name is on the system, they will charge less when you call them back again at the airport to return you to the city centre.

NB NEVER get in a white renfrew taxi at the airport rank to return to Glasgow, the fare could be double depending on traffic and the boundry they charge.

There is a direct bus (number 500) every ten minutes from Glasgow Central station to Glasgow Airport. The single fare is £4.50. See: http://www.glasgowflyer.com/
