Taxi Manchester Airport to Harrogate

Can you recommend a taxi or a shuttle from Manchester airport to Harrogate? We're arriving at 16:30 but have to wait for a friend who is arriving from London at 18:40, on a Friday evening. We would prefer by use cash. TIA.

Harrogate is a fair distance from Manchester. I would google " Manchester airport to Harrogate taxi" and a whole bunch of taxi firms will come up. It would be worth checking companies in Harrogate as well as those around the airport. The quick look I did suggested it is around 70 to 90 UK pounds and so for 3 people it's not much different than the cost of the train.

Arrow Cars are the airport approved company - check www.manchesterairport.co.uk for details ... I think it will be a high fare, so be prepared

You may want to consider taking the train? It is direct from the airport to Leeds (1h 30 mins), from where you could take a local train to Harrogate or else a taxi to Harrogate.

try star cars in harrogate

01423 500515

they specialise in Airport runs.

otherwise there's the Transpennine express train to Leeds then change for the train to Harrogate. There's a train from MAN at 18:41 and 19:41 you'll be in Harrogate by 22:00 cost £26 each.

Thank you, all, for your kind replies. We were able to get a taxi to transport us to Harrogate. It's interesting that the taxi for the three of us is only minimally more expensive than three train tickets! Had no idea that train travel was so dear in UK.

Hi

Can I suggest you get a price from the black cabs parked outside Manchester Airport, they are negotiable and are very reasonably priced.

Am sure you will be pleasantly surprised, I was.
