There is a train between Luton Airport and Leicester; the journey takes around an hour. You will first need to take a bus from the airport, for the short journey to Luton Airport Parkway station.

A pre-arranged taxi from Luton Airport to DMU usually costs around £70. If more than one of you are traveling together this might be a good option because you could share the cost.

There are a number of Leicester taxi companies with whom you can book advance pick-ups. You will need to make your own arrangements directly with the taxi company and pay the driver yourself in cash. Please note that these companies are not connected to or endorsed by DMU in any way. Should you choose to use one of these companies it is entirely at your own risk and any such liability is expressly disclaimed by DMU.

Be careful if you decide to use one of that taxis that wait at the airport - they will usually be much more expensive than a txi that has been arranged in advance.
