We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride

Directions for your taxi from Manchester Airport
Manchester Airport (MAN) is the third busiest airport in the United Kingdom, serving over 199 destinations worldwide. The airport is located 14.5 km away from Manchester city centre, so taking a Manchester airport taxi shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes in light traffic.
To begin your journey, your driver will get on Airport Spur/A555 and head south. Then, at the roundabout, they will take the 3rd exit to the M60. You will then follow signs for Manchester/Stockport/M60/Sheffield/M67/M56/Leeds/M62/Bolton/M61 before merging onto the M56. After turning right onto Pkwy/A5103, your driver will then take a left onto Princess Rd/A5103. After around 1 mile, your driver will take the second exit at the roundabout onto Ring Rd/A57(M)/A635 ramp to Ashton-under-Lyne/Sheffield/Piccadilly.

How much is a Manchester Airport taxi?
Unfortunately, the local taxis you will find at the ranks outside the airport don’t offer one set-rate fee for the journey from the airport to Manchester city centre. Instead, you will be charged depending on the time of day you leave the airport and the size of car you need. However, the average price is around £44 (€52). To secure a set rate for your journey, you can book your transfer in advance.
