Airport to hotel

Help required please.

Arriving Toulouse airport 10:30am on Sunday 16/4/17. We are staying at the Ibis budget hotel Toulouse centre Gare. 27 Boulevard des Minimes 31200.

1) If we use the airport bus which is the nearest stop to get off for our hotel.

2) Do we pay on the bus or get a ticket from the airport.

3) How much approx. would a taxi cost, we only have hand luggage.

I have looked on the web sites but cannot get the information I need

Thanks in advance

1) The last stop at the bus station is about 700 yards away. It doesn't stop any closer.

2) on the bus - it's 8 Euros each.

3) FAQ here says : A taxi will cost about €22 (daytime), €25 at night.

If you use the tram from the airport plus metro to get to the Canal du Midi station (about the same distance from that hotel as the main station) it will cost only €1,60 each but take rather longer as you have to go around in a big loop.

There are no doubt other, more devious, ways to do the trip but that would need longer to study maps and timetables than I have just now!

I think the nearest stop to your hotel is probably the last one on the route, at the bus station next to the main Toulouse Matabiau rail station, with a bit of a walk from there. Tickets (8€) are sold on the bus (you pay the driver) but there may be a machine as well; I can't remember.

Not sure what a taxi would cost, but probably a bit more than the bus fare for the two of you. If I had heavy bags that I didn't want to trundle down the streets I would take a taxi; with light bags I'd walk it.

As said above, if there are two or more of you then I'd either take a taxi, or get the tram+bus if you're on a tight budget. I can't see the point of taking the airport shuttle bus and having a long walk just to save 5 or 6€.

The airport shuttle stops at the station on the way from the airport.

<< The airport shuttle stops at the station on the way from the airport. >>

True, but like many hotels, they take a bit of poetic license with their names. They'd still have an 8-10minute walk from the station.

I was imagining the Ibis across the road from the station. With this particular hotel the bus station is in fact closer than the railway station.

Best is to hire a cab through Uber or a local cab application: "MySam".(MySam.fr) This is the same as Uber but better as you can choose the cab size and level and book 1 x month ahead. Note My Sam convers the whole of France even in small places covered by 3G/4G signals.

Have a nice trip
