Should you use Airport Transfers on your next trip?

If you haven’t yet used airport transfers, you’ve been missing out. Once only an option for the rich and famous, they’re now popular with travellers who have all different budgets, due to their accessibility and the many benefits they offer.

Let’s face it, while traveling is an incredible experience, and we’re all lucky to have the opportunity to see new things, explore different cultures and meet people from all walks of life, the actual act of getting from one country to another can be incredibly stressful and exhausting.

With time changes, long flights, airport check ins and security, rude passengers, tired kids and going through customs, by the time you arrive at your hotel in your new country, you may find that all you want to do is sleep and recover for five or six days.

Obviously, this is not an ideal way to experience travel. So how can you make it a much easier experience?

The answer is to use an airport transfer. This will greatly change the way you get to your new destination, making it easier, faster and less stressful.

Often, you’ll find that just as your flight arrives into an airport, many other flights are also arriving from other destinations. This means that the lines for customs, baggage, and taxis are sometimes out of control, causing you to feel even more tired and cranky as you wait in line. If you book an airport transfer, you’ll have a car waiting for you when your flight arrives, allowing you to walk straight out of the airport arrivals area and straight into a car with a driver that knows exactly where you’re going.

While we’d all like to consider ourselves pros at directions and navigating public transport, you’re unlikely to be on your game after a long flight that seemed to be full of crying babies. There are few things worse than getting completely lost in a brand new city and having to deal with an unfamiliar layout and public transport system- probably without access to wifi.

Let’s also not forget that unfortunately, tourists are often targeted for crime in big cities around the world. If you have all of your luggage and look like you don’t know where you’re going, you may yourself in an unsafe situation. There are so many travel scams that target tourists, and when you’re tired and jet-lagged you’ll be more likely to let your guard down or trust someone you shouldn’t just because you’re desperate to get to your hotel and get some sleep.

And while you may be planning to hire a car, picking up a car from the airport is usually far more expensive than getting one in the city, and you’ll usually find that the process will take a lot longer as there will probably be people on your flight who have the same idea.

So if you’re hoping to make your travels easier and more relaxing, be sure to use an airport transfer on your next trip.
