Tips for Picking an Airport Shuttle

Share

Let’s be honest, getting to and from the airport can be a bit troublesome, which is why people tend to turn to an airport shuttle service to deal with that particular issue.

Now, of course, you have to choose an airport shuttle service which can be difficult for some people. If you’re looking to choose, here’s some tips to find the airport shuttle for you; one that’ll arrive on time and get you to where you want to go with time to spare.

Planning: it helps you, it helps the shuttle

Booking a service in advance, calculating how much travel time you need to get to or from the airport will make it easier for you and the shuttle, best done by adding around an hour to be prepared for either traffic or the shuttle being late. Take into account when you’ll be travelling, and other conditions, like roadwork, and account for them as well.

Shortlist them

You’ll want to investigate multiple transportation services in order to find the airport shuttle service for you. Make sure to check reviews by prior passengers, ensuring that they’re properly licensed, have insurance, and other things. Pay attention to the details to see what works for you.

What’s the cost?

Of course this is something to consider. Costs are dependent on distance travelled, plus a pick-up fee. Many will offer flat destination fees, if you travel to or from the airport to anywhere commonly travelled by the service. Make sure to check if the rate covers you and your party only, or if there’ll be other clients. It’s usually cheaper to ride with more people.

Luggage

Another obvious consideration. Make sure to inquire about how much luggage your shuttle can handle, some offer different kinds of vehicles, from sedans to SUVs, and you want to ensure that you get a vehicle that can handle all your bags. Oh, and if you have a pet, make sure they can handle them too.

Call before pickup

Make sure to call the service a bit before the shuttle will arrive, in order to make sure that the driver has your reservation and you’ll be picked up by a shuttle on time. Some companies access your flight info, so don’t be afraid to ask if there are issues regarding the trip.
