Glasgow Airport Taxis: Taxi Transfers to and from Glasgow
Glasgow International Airport is the second busiest in Scotland, after Edinburgh Airport, handling over 7 million passengers during the year. The Greater Glasgow conurbation is well served by the airport, which is located just a few miles west of Glasgow city centre.
From here, you can fly to worldwide destinations including Continental Europe, the States, and Canada. The lion’s share of routes from Glasgow involve domestic destinations and Spanish airports, but in third place is the United Arab Emirates – over 400,000 passengers flew between here and Glasgow in 2013.
With so many destinations available, Glasgow Airport is obviously busy, and travellers might find themselves competing for space on public transport when getting there – or enduring a stressful drive.
Why not make things easy on yourself and book a taxi with Airport Cars UK? We can take care of that all-important first leg of your journey, or take you away from the airport to where you need to go!
Getting to and from Glasgow Airport
The airport is right next to the M8 motorway, just seven miles from central Glasgow. This motorway joins the M74 and M77, which means that Glasgow Airport is easy to find from many places served by Scotland’s major roads – and our drivers have local knowledge!
Whether you’re departing or arriving, you can make a booking via the journey calculator above, which is quick and easy to use. If you’re looking for a taxi at short notice, no problem – give us a call on +44 (0) 330 088 2222 and we’ll get a car to you, wherever you are.
Top 10 things to do in Glasgow
Of course, if you’ve landed here, you have the opportunity to explore Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city, which offers tourists myriad options for entertainment and enrichment!
1) Go sightseeing on a tour bus, which has an open top and goes to 28 different stops. Hop off at one of these to explore the city on foot – you can always get back on again!
2) If you’d prefer a boat to a bus, you’re fortunate – the River Clyde runs through Glasgow, so why not take a cruise down it to see the sights, which include the historic shipyards?
3) On the subject of ships, you can see one on the Clyde: The Tall Ship at Riverside! This impressive vessel is now an attractive museum.
4) If you’re a transport enthusiast, make sure you visit the Riverside Museum, which is next to the Tall Ship. Cars, buses and trams are all on display for your enjoyment!
5) While you explore the city centre, take some time to do a spot of shopping. Argyle Street, Buchanan Street and Sauchiehall Street are all pedestrianised, so there’s no need to worry about traffic – stroll around and browse at your leisure!
6) Fancy a wee dram? You can enjoy some fine whiskies in the excellent Glasgow pubs, but there is something a bit special just half an hour away: Glengoyne Distillery. Take a tour and soak up the stunning scenery – it’s just below the Campsie Fells.
7) Cultural attractions abound in Glasgow, and the University’s Hunterian Museum is well worth a visit – it’s Scotland’s oldest museum, encompassing several parts including the Mackintosh House (containing a collection of his work) and an anatomy museum.
8) There is another popular place for art enthusiasts to visit in Glasgow: Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum! It reopened in 2006 after major renovation.
9) With all these excursions, you could really work up a thirst. Quench it at the Willow Tearooms, a beautiful building that was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
10) If you fancy a bit of theatre, try something a bit different at the immensely popular Sharmanka Kinetic Gallery. Carved figures and bits of scrap “perform” to music. Well, we did say it was different – and it has to be seen to be believed!
