They all are expensive. If cost is important, take the bus. It is about 10 Euro from the airport to Lugo, and another 18E from Lugo to Leon. :)

You can get the train from Santiago to Leon (www.renfe.com). On the way back from Sarria you can get the bus from Sarria to Lugo bus station with Monbus. And then a Empresa Freire from Lugo bus station direct to Santiago airport,

Taxis, generally, charge €1/Km. A price that has remained remarkably static for almost a decade now.

Which airport you have in mind might help members to give you better answers.

There's this website, www.rentautobus.com, where you can post your upcoming trip and have various taxi and transfer companies come up with offers. It is based in Spain so a lot of smaller Spanish outfits are on this platform. I've used it once when we needed a minivan for a multi-day itinerary and we received several quotes in 24 hours or so. I'd look into that for that Santiago to Leon trip - and compare prices with RENFE and the bus, of course.

Edited to add: If you don't have the ticket yet, the airport in Santiago is not the most convenient one to fly into if you're starting in Leon. Have you thought of changing the ticket - or even throwing it away if it's a standalone one-way flight - and fly somewhere closer? Leon's is a smallish airport but you could consider flying into Valladolid, Oviedo or even Santander. or Bilbao. All of these are handier for Leon than Santiago is.

I politely disagree, Santiago has both train and bus direct connections to Leon, travel time between 5 and 6 hours. Buen Camino, SY

It does. But flying into Oviedo or Valladolid, one is only looking at a 1-to-2 hours trip by bus or train. And getting a transfer from Santiago to Leon would be prohibitively expensive.
