Taxi from Airport to City Centre

Hi, we are going Manchester soon. We are four persons and we would like to a taxi from the airport to Crowne Plaza City Centre hotel. Is a black cab suitable for four person (with a small suitcase each)? How much will it cost?

Yes, you will fit a black cab. The fare should be about £20, I think.

I think it will be more like £25-£30. It's more than £20 from the airport to Sale in a black cab, and town is probably about 3 miles further.

It's probably quicker and cheaper by train, even though there are 4 of you. It's about £4 single, trains run every few minutes throughout the day and less frequently at night. They stop for about 4 hours in the middle of the night. The train station is linked by a covered walkway from the airport terminals.

From Manchester Piccadilly you have a number of choices, depending on the time of day.

Getting a Bury or Rochdale tram (Metrolink) to Shudehill, or a taxi would be your best bets.

The train from the airport station to Manchester Piccadilly Station would take 20 minutes and the fare is about £4.00. The train ticket gives you free use of the trams in the city centre. The Crowne Plaza Hotel is near Shudehill Tram Station, so a tram from Piccadilly Station would get you within a couple of minutes walk from your hotel.

Thanks a lot! Sounds good, so we may consider to take the train then.

It will be quicker and cheaper to take the train to Piccadilly and then the Bury tram to Shude Hill (about 3 stops). The Crowne Plaza is about 5 mins walk from Shude Hill tram stop. The train is about £4, however assuming you can fit 4 people with luggage in a black cab, it will be nearer £30. At rush hour, a taxi will take absolutely ages!
