If your holiday or business travel plans take you from Liverpool Airport or Manchester Airport to Chester, you will require an airport transfer in some way or another. Waiting until you exit the airport is not the best time to try to find a way to get from the airport back to Chester. It can quickly become a quagmire of confusion and expenses you could have avoided with a little advance planning.
Chester Airport Transfer Tips
At Chester Taxi Services we believe in helping our customers get to where they need to be, so buckle up for are our tips and advice on your options for navigating your airport transfers to and from Manchester and Liverpool airports to Chester.
If You Have Pre-arranged Holiday Package
If you and your family have arranged a holiday package that includes airport transfers, your decision is already taken care of: there should be a representative from the travel agency who can assist you with finding the transfer to your lodging. But don’t stop reading, even if you have a pre-paid plan, because it’s always possible for breakdowns in communications to occur, so you should always have a contingency plan.
If You Want the Cheapest Option: Public Transportation
Once you have retrieved your baggage, if you are determined to find the cheapest way to reach your destination, look for public transportation options. There may be a train or bus that will take you to your next location. The disadvantages, however, may outweigh the low cost, depending upon your situation. Cheapest is not necessarily best.

If You Aren’t in a Big Hurry: Taxi at Airport Queue
There will be taxis waiting to take you on to their next destination. Depending upon the number of passengers disembarking at the same time, you may have to wait awhile before getting an available taxi. You also are not assured that you will be dealing with a reputable company.
In order to protect yourself, we suggest that you do a little research ahead of time so you know the approximate cost you should pay to travel to and from the airport to your destination. If you are not familiar with the city, you also want to check out the typical routes, to ensure that your driver does not take you the long way around to increase the fare. Make sure that you have the appropriate currency and enough change with you to cover the payment to your driver.
If You Don’t Mind Crowds: Airport Shuttle
You may be able to find a shuttle service that goes to your destination. If you discover that your hotel has a shuttle that goes to and from the airport, you may want to consider this option. It will be reasonable, but you would need to expect stops at various hotels between the airport and your hotel.
If You Don’t Mind Uncertainty: Uber
Uber is a very popular way to get from the airport to your final destination. Once you have the app on your phone, you can arrange for the driver to pick you up and you know in advance how much you will be charged for the service. Issues with Uber include things such as unreliability of drivers, who can cancel your pick up on a whim (although there is always another driver you can contact if this occurs). Uber drivers rarely assist with luggage. Some times Uber drivers cannot get to your exact location and will insist that you meet them a few blocks away.
Note: In the recent debacle at with Monarch and Ryanair at Liverpool and Manchester airports, it was reported that Uber wanted upwards of £100 for a 10 mile journey.
If You Need Your Independence: Car Rental
You can choose to book a vehicle directly through a car rental supplier. If you are planning to spend some time in Chester and want the freedom to drive yourself around, this is your best option, although it will not be inexpensive.
If You Want Reliable Transfer with Extras: Pre-Arranged Private Taxi
