You’ve successfully booked your flight, made reservation in a perfect hotel to stay in, and have created an itinerary for the trip of your dreams. Before you come to your holiday destination, ensure you have quality transfers and shuttles to get you there. To have an organised vacation, ensure you are loaded with cash and ensure you know how to find these modes of transportations:
- Taxi: Ignore peddlers that offer you airport transfers once you step out from the Arrival area. They can overcharge your fare or probably rob you with your belongings. Find a way to get to the main airport taxi, where you find a posted signage. You’ll know you’re there if you find other travellers queueing to wait for their turns. Once you’re inside the cab, ensure you and the driver both agree on a price and the directions. This will ensure you don’t get scammed by this driver.
- Airport Bus or Coach: Most travellers walk towards the airport ground transportation labelled ‘airport shuttles’ or ‘express coach’. Many international airports advertise their bus service as they are often faster and safer. But before you finally decide to board this ride, be aware that they cost more than local rides.
- Hotel Transfers: So, there might be a dedicated car or limousine waiting at the airport. That should make you lucky as the rides are complimentary to the hotel transfers, pre-arranged and paid through the hotel. These quality transfers and shuttles will make you feel like a VIP and can have the limo driver hold a placard with your misspelled name on it.
- Local Train or Bus: If you come to a foreign land and take the local bus or train, you can have yourself walking a bit further from the airport. You try to experiment what these transports can provide you while you’re listening to great music in this foreign land. You need to watch carefully for bus stop signs, and this may take you longer to reach your preferred destination. It’s the best way to get the feel of the city, save cash and enjoy a certain dash of flavour. You’ll be shaking elbows with locals, and even guarantee the best stories of your vacation.
