Car Rentals: Planning a Weekend Getaway

When I moved to the big city, buying a car seemed like a waste of money. The subway takes me anywhere I want to go, and there are always cabs as a backup. When I do want to get out of the city for a weekend, I arrange for a car rental. Rentals are great for me. I get to choose the type of vehicle that I want, buy insurance to cover the trip, and concentrate on enjoying myself. If the car develops engine trouble, I call the agency and they pick me up in a replacement. Thanks to my club discounts, I even get price breaks on some of my rentals. If you are new to the idea of renting a car, let me help. I'll show you how to get the best terms, including the lowest price. That'll make for a more pleasant trip.

Are You Looking For Airport Transportation? Lesser Known Factors To Consider When Selecting One


If you are traveling this holiday season, you may be looking to hire an airport transportation service to get you to the airport and back home after your trip. This way, you don't have to worry about driving if you are anxious about flying or you don't have to pay to park your car at the airport. There are many factors to consider as you go about looking for an airport transportation driver or company. For most people, price is the biggest factor to consider. However, there are a few lesser known factors that you should consider before selecting an airport transportation company. Here are a few of those factors. 

If They Track Your Flight

One important factor to consider when selecting an airport transportation service is whether they ask for your flight number and track your flights for you. Some companies will track your flight. If your outgoing flight is going to be delayed, they automatically give you the option of getting on a later flight. Other companies will track your flight and are not flexible when it comes to booking you on later flights. If your incoming flight is delayed, they will be there waiting for you if they track the flight, rather than leaving you to call and explain why you weren't there to catch the shuttle at your scheduled time. 

Whether You're Alone or With Others

Another important factor to consider when selecting airport transportation is whether you are alone or with others. If you prefer to get off of the flight and get checked into a hotel room so you can shower or sleep, the last thing you may want is a shuttle with eight or ten other people and to have to make multiple stops before you get to your hotel. On the flip side, if you are in no hurry and want to save money, a shuttle with multiple people allows you to do this. Carefully consider this factor and which option is right for you. 

How Much Luggage You Can Bring

The last factor to consider when booking an airport transportation company is how much luggage or what sized luggage you can bring. If you are traveling with more than two pieces of luggage and a carry-on or over-sized luggage, you need to find a transportation company that can accommodate you. Some will not allow you to bring too much luggage, since they have to fit everyone's luggage. Other companies may charge you for over-sized luggage. Always find out what the deal is with luggage before you book. 

There are many different small and large companies who offer airport transportation to pick you up at your home or to pick you up at the airport and take you to a hotel or back home. Considering all of these factors will help you select the service that is ideal in your situation.
