Amidst the excitement of going on holiday abroad, there is the underlying stress of having to organise how you are going to get to and from the airport. One option is to take your car, though parking can be expensive. Another option is to get a bus, but when you are lugging around heavy suitcases, this isn’t the best option. If you are looking to get your holiday off to a good start, book a taxi to take you to the airport! Here’s why travelling in a taxi to and from the airport is the best option for holiday goers…Save yourself the stress of having to get a bus or train to the airport by booking a taxi.
Taxis are the most convenient travel option for holiday goers. By choosing to travel in a taxi, you can free yourself from the stress of having to book long-stay parking at the airport or the worry of whether the bus being late will result in you missing your expensive flight. Travelling via taxi will also prevent you from having to struggle on the packed connection bus with multiple suitcases.
It’s cost effective
Long-stay airport parking is certainly not cheap. Even if you have booked a low-budget holiday, once you have factored in the cost of airport parking, the price can soon sky rocket! It is much more cost effective to call up your local taxi firm and book a ride to the airport. You will not have to worry about the cost of petrol or parking and can simply sit back, relax and get into holiday mode.
It prevents you from having to ask a favour
Airport flights can be at awkward and unearthly hours, so unless your friends and family are nocturnal, it is unlikely that they are going to want to give you a lift to or from the airport at four in the morning. Taxi drivers, on the other hand, are used to being up and driving about at this time of night. They will more than happily pick you up from your house and drop you off at the airport and vice versa, no matter what time of day or night. If you have been dreading asking your friends or family for the favour, this gives you an easy way out of it!
Booking your taxi
If you are looking to spend as little as possible on your holiday transport, then it is worth ringing up a few local taxi firms in advance, to see if they will give you a quote. That way you can see who offers the best price. It may also be worth checking various taxi mobile apps for an easy way to compare fares. It is highly recommended that you book your taxi in advance, as this will ensure the car gets to you on time. If you ring up shortly before you need your taxi, there is a risk that the firm will be really busy and will be unable to send a car to you straight away
