Nothing wrong with saving the pennies whenever possible, being a Yorkshireman I'm renowned for it!
I think the bus at £9.00 may be the cheapest(!) option. I suspect they can get away with charging that fare because they know that they have a captive market for those relying on public transport. A taxi would cost a fortune.
I don't know if you've been to Belfast before, but the bus only takes around 45 mins to get to the city as I'm pretty sure it's a limited stop service (only remember it stopping once on my journey from BFS
). I think it's a bit nearer than what you said in your opening post (about 25 miles). Belfast really surprised me when I visited, in a very positive way. I'll certainly be going back again.
It may sound obvious, but if you ever find yourself in a position in the future of having similar fares to both BFS
then choose BHD
. Nothing wrong with BFS
is so convenient if you are heading into the city and the airport is very modern, light and pleasant.
Like a fine wine, one gets better with age.
