3 Reasons To Take Advantage Of Airport Shuttle Services

Posted on: 10 January 2023

If you are getting ready to travel, you probably have booked your flights and hotel, but have you figured out how you are getting to the airport? While driving and parking onsite may be tempting, taking advantage of airport shuttle services is a much better choice. Here are a few reasons why. 

1. Convenience

It does not matter if you are going from an off-site parking lot to the airport, from the airport to your hotel, or returning from your hotel for your return flight. There are not too many forms of transportation more convenient than an airport shuttle service.

The shuttle service will pick you up from outside your vehicle, airport, or hotel and take you directly to where you need to go. You don't have to worry about parking in the parking deck and lugging your luggage from point A to B. The shuttle driver will pick you up and drop you off curbside. 

2. Cost

If you park onsite at the airport when you are heading out of town for a week or longer, you may owe a couple of hundred dollars in parking when you return. The cost varies based on location, but most onsite lots are expensive.

An airline shuttle transportation service allows you to park off-site at a less expensive lot, with more conveniences than are found with onsite parking. Not only do you get a curbside drop-off, but your driver usually loads and unloads your bags from the bus or van. 

If you use the shuttle service to go from the airport to your hotel or vice versa, the shuttle's cost is usually much less than a cab or rideshare service. Most shuttle companies have set rates for their services, so you can pay in advance and not worry about unexpected transportation costs. 

3. Safety

If you travel alone, airport parking decks or lots can be scary places to leave your vehicle. No matter where you travel, there are always unsavory characters in and around the airport. Even when you book rideshare services or taxicabs, you are still alone. You never know who you are getting into the vehicle with.

There is safety in numbers. Airport shuttle services will pick you up from well-lit locations and take you to your car or hotel. Very seldom are you riding alone unless you booked it that way. Their drivers will provide safe door-to-door services that you can trust.
