Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit our website, let me tell you a little about us and what we do. St Andrews Shuttle is a booking service that arranges shared transfers predominantly running between St Andrews and Edinburgh airport (other destinations are available on request). St Andrews Shuttle is a family run business and was started in November 2008 - Wendy does lots of admin and is there to meet and greet you at Edinburgh airport during our really busy spells. My sister Fiona drives for us and me – well I do lots of everything! I believe there's nothing quite like the personal touch of a family run company, which many of returning customers truly appreciate. We started out with a timetable that was aligned to the start and end of St Andrews University term times, offering the students a reliable and value for money means of transport between St Andrews and Edinburgh airport. It didn’t take us long to realise that other people outwith the student population had located our website and could benefit from our services, knowledge and expertise, so we now welcome everyone to use our service. We always pick you up from your address in St Andrews – ideal whether it’s very early in the morning or late at night - and not having to get your heavy luggage to the bus stop or train station, especially when the weather is wet and cold! We also provide a meet and greet service at the airport at no extra cost; our driver will wait for you in the arrivals hall at the airport and will have a sign with your name on it. And we monitor flight arrivals – so even if your flight is delayed – we will still be there to meet you!
As our business expanded we started to contract out some of our work to local taxi drivers and companies based in and around the St Andrews catchment area, helping to sustain and help the local economy, which is a very important principle to me. We have access to a large number of vehicles with 4, 6 and 8 seats, we work closely with our customers and contractors, always looking for feedback on how we can improve our service, so if you have some feedback for us get in touch here
Our prices are very competitive and we offer heavily discounted student rates. For example, during our peak times (the start and end of terms at St Andrews University) the journey between Edinburgh Airport and St Andrews is a fantastic £19.00 GBP per person per journey. Outwith these times the cost is FROM £19.00 GBP dependant on the date of travel and the number of passengers travelling. So you are asking how we can be so inexpensive - well we do our best to arrange shared transfers, where someone else’s travel arrangements compliment yours – you then all agree to share the cost . So how much will you pay? Well if you are travelling alone the cost starts at £85 GBP, if there are two people travelling as part of a shared transfer the cost is £45 per person, three people the cost is £30 per person, four or five people the cost is £25 per person six to eight passengers the cost is £19 per person. All you have to do is complete the booking form with your travel details and we will get back to you with our best offer, keeping you up to date if we can offer you a better deal! Of course if you prefer to have a private transfer where it is only you or the group you are travelling with then we can offer this too. If everyone is being collected from and dropped at the same place the cost will be £85 for 1 – 4 passengers and £105 for 5 – 8 passengers. We will complete multiple pickup and drop off points and there may be an extra charge of between £2-£5, depending on the number of stops required – just let us know and we will come back to you with a price.
Coming to St Andrews to play Golf, why not let G & S Tours help you?
