For Manchester International Airport, students can book a car with the airport partner Street Cars. The cost of a taxi from Manchester Airport for 1 student or 2 students sharing will be between £60 and £85 total (£30-£42.50 each, if sharing), and a taxi for 3-4 students sharing will cost between £100 and £120 (£25-£40 each) which is payable on arrival to the taxi provider.

For Liverpool John Lennon Airport, students can use local taxi companies such as Delta Taxis or ComCab.The cost for students arriving at Liverpool Airport will be between £15 and £25 per taxi total (£7.50-£17.50 each, if 2 students sharing).

Please ensure you adhere to adhere to the latest UK government guidance on using private transport.
