Our flight left early so we had to take an airport express bus at three am. It wasn't pretty, and it was a long ride, but got us there in time. There are more options during the day, but if you've an early flight, that's the only transit we found. It's called the Luton Airport Express Shuttle.

We were flying Easyjet and their bus picked us up, along with about a dozen other people. I think it ran every hour and you can save money if you buy your ticket ahead.

I know I keep honking National Express's horn but I swear I'm not getting any money from them, lol. They have cheap coach fares to Luton. I've booked tickets for 1 GBP online before. The Luton Express train is very expensive, IMO.

By the way? Luton (the town, not the airport) is a shithole. Just an FYI.

As far as I know, you don't even need to be flying easyJet (though most do) to take their bus service.

www.easybus.co.uk

It's probably the cheapest way to get to Luton if a National Express funsaver fare (1£) isn't offered.
