Birmingham taxi rank
The official Birmingham Airport Taxi rank sits outside arrivals, operating a twenty-four hour hackney carriage service. Airport Ranks run this service and there is a customer service representative available at the rank. A variety of vehicles should be available, with some carrying up to five passengers and some able to carry more than this.
Journeys using these cabs will be a metered fare, which will be displayed throughout your trip in the taxi. The taxis also accept major credit and debit cards, saving you the hassle of trying to find spare change!
Are there other options?
Yes, you do not have to use the official Birmingham airport taxis. There are plenty of local taxi companies, some of which are located at the top of this page, who you can ring up and book in advance, usually saving you quite a bit of money on the metered fare. See above for some really handy local companies with great rates!
The downside of this is that you will usually have to include in the price you pay the cost of any parking fees that may be incurred.
If you are a regular flyer or a corporate customer, consider making use of the account options offered by most taxi companies. Account holders receive priority services, and negotiable rates depending on how frequently a taxi is requested.
Birmingham Airport is very conveniently located. You can get the RailAir service to the nearby Birmingham International rail station, which also gives you access to the National Exhibition Centre (NEC). However, many train routes operate from Birmingham New Street, which is convenient for the town centre and The Bullring. It is around a 30 minute drive, dependent on traffic!
