What is the cheapest way to travel to Bristol Airport?

Overall, the cheapest way to get to the airport is by using the A1 Bristol Flyer, especially if you are travelling by yourself.

However, if you are travelling as a group of four adults, Bristol Airport Taxi and AA Taxi Bristol offered the best prices, £38 (or £9.50 per person) and £39 (or £9.75 per person). The taxi also provides the convenience of being direct and faster and the security of a guaranteed seat.

An Uber can also be cheaper alternative if you are travelling as a group of four or more adults, however, the Ubers can not always be pre-booked from the app and prices can fluctuate depending on demand and availability, so they are not always the most reliable option.
