Many people are under the impression that airport transfers are only for wealthy travellers, but this couldn’t be more wrong. are an affordable way to make traveling easier, more pleasant, and far less stressful.
Here are some reasons why you may want to think about using airport transfers for your next trip:
You’ll save time
If you’re like most people, by the time you’ve lined up to check in for the airport, lined up to board your flight, and then lined up to go through customs, you’re sick of hanging out in lines and just want to get to your next destination. If you haven’t booked airport transfers though, you’ll find that there’s a high chance you’ll be lining up for a taxi or searching for public transport. By booking ahead, you can grab your bag and walk straight out of the airport and into a car so you can head straight to your hotel.
You won’t get lost
Once you’re in a new city, it’s easy to think you know where you’re going until suddenly you realise you’ve been walking around in circles. And if you haven’t yet bought a local sim card, it’s likely that you’ll be going old-school with a map or asking locals for directions.
Not only is this time consuming and stressful- especially when you’re tired and jet-lagged, but nothing tests a relationship like being lost together and both blaming the other person for the mistake.
Since the drivers of your airport transfer will know the city like the back of their hand and will already know where they’re taking you, you won’t need to worry about getting lost in a new city and having a blow up with your travel buddy.
You’ll stay safe
In many cities it can be unsafe to wander around with your bags- particularly if you arrived at night. And it’s easy to make yourself a target as you look at a map, stroll around aimlessly, and ask locals for directions. Sure, it’s likely that you’ll be given great directions by the people you ask, but unfortunately tourists are targeted around the world, and since you’ll be carrying all of your things (including your valuables) with you, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Drivers of airport transfers have been checked and will get you to your hotel quickly and safely, so you don’t need to worry about immediately seeing the worst parts of your new destination.
It’s cheaper than hiring a car
In many destinations the public transport system is incredible, however many people still hire a car so they can get to and from the airport. Hiring a car at the airport is expensive and time-consuming- even if you’ve booked ahead it’s likely that other people on your flight have as well. Taking an airport transfer and then using public transport gives you convenience and bang for your buck.
