As you are planning your summer adventures, you consider every aspect of your travel plans. You organize schedules and analyze flight times, but have you thought about how you are going to get to the airport? You could have a friend drop you off, or you could park your car at the airport and pay a daily rate for it to sit there, unattended. However, there is a better option for getting to the airport safely and on time. Here are 5 reasons you should consider taking the shuttle to the airport.
1. The shuttle will pick you up at home. If you think that airport shuttles only ferry passengers back and forth from the airport to hotels, you are only partially correct. You can actually call an airport shuttle to pick you up from your house. This way, you can leave the car at home, and feel confident in getting to the airport on time.
2. Airport parking can be very expensive. With airport parking ranging from between $15 and $50 a day, a week long trip could cost you up to a few hundred dollars for just parking at some airports. While a shuttle or taxi ride can cost up to about $50 each way, it still may be quite a bit less expensive than parking at the airport.
3. Shuttle drivers know their way around the airport. Have you ever gotten lost trying to find your way to the airport, or simply trying to navigate the parking lot? One wrong turn will have you exiting the terminal before you have even had a chance to park. Taking the shuttle will save you valuable time and help you avoid getting lost while navigating the parking lot.
4. Taking the shuttle may be a safer option. Rather than leaving your vehicle unattended in a parking lot for a week, you can feel safer knowing that it is stored safely at home in your garage or driveway. You can also feel safer taking the shuttle than if you were to take public transportation. This is especially true if you have small children, because it eliminates the need to wait at a bus stop or cross traffic to get to a station.
5. Taking the shuttle means curbside service. The best part about taking the shuttle to the airport is that the shuttle will take you exactly where you need to go. You will not have to worry about dragging you luggage across a parking lot or crossing traffic to get into the airport terminal. They will drop you off at the door.
