    Slower - but Cheaper !

    by sourbugger Updated Feb 15, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is now good competition on the Stansted - Central London route, and you can get a quick link to their various websites through www.baa.com

    It is usually best not to book ahead if you are ARRIVING at Stansted as just turning up at the airport bus station means you will be able to get the first one leaving.

    The average price is around 15 pounds return, although a new competitor called 'Terravision' (www.lowcostbus.com) is often a little cheaper.

  • Stansted -> London ? Don't take London Hoppa!

    by Lemmi Written Feb 3, 2005

    The busses from Stansted airport to central London all roughly cost the same. Terravision claims to be a little faster and cheaper than its competitors though.
    I took National Express for 15 pound round trip and was very satisfied.
    Whatever you do, stay away from London Hoppa!
    A friend of mine almost didn't get dropped off downtown just because she was the last person on board. Also on the way back the bus simply didn't pick her up at all which is unacceptable if you have a plane to catch!

    Check the ryanair website for all 3 links...

    Nearest Petrol station

    by sourbugger Updated Nov 2, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oh yeah ?

    There is a serious lack of Petrol stations at Stansted airport.

    There are also none in either direction on the M11 for about twenty miles north or south.

    It's therefore useful to know that the Service station (Bishop's Stortford) on the same large roundabout as the entrance to Stansted airport has a "Shell" station.

    I also believe there is a new one by the mid-stay car park about a mile from the terminal.

    Low cost airline heaven

    by catchpm Written Oct 21, 2003

    Stansted is about 30 miles north of the centre of London, and well served by roads and public transportation. The M11 motorway is joinable at Stansted and goes directly into London or to the M25 (motorway car park!!) to circle London. Alternatively, the midlands and north are also easily accessible. There is a regular and often non-stop service to Stansted by rail from London (Liverpool Street) on the Stansted Express, or alternatively a number of bus services run (especially between the 3 major London airports, which are good if you have a connecting flight)

    Stansted is the main base for Ryanair who are about the lowest cost airline in the UK, and also highly served by Easyjet since their takeover of Go. Ryanair and Easyjet both serve a number of European and domestic destinations from Stansted. With the easy transportation links, it's well worth considering Stansted as a departure point as opposed to the saturated Heathrow or Gatwick.

    A lot of people have the misconception that Stansted is well away from London, and this really isn't the case. The journey is relatively painless up the M11 The only real London airport is London City. Heathrow is in Middlesex and Gatwick is in West Sussex. Although both are slightly closer to London than Stansted, it really isn't that far away

    As with any other airport, you spend way too much time waiting in stead of travelling.

    And what is there to see: a dull concrete platform ...
