WHY CHOOSE AIRPORT TRANSFERS
Going on holiday but not sure whether to book executive airport transfers or drive yourself?
It is getting easier to book flights and holidays but then comes the problem – How do we get to the airport? Or to the hotel once arrived at the destination?
Public transport is an option but it is not always convenient because of strict schedules and fixed drop off points. It comes down to the decision between booking an airport transfer with 1st Class Transfer Services or hiring a car and driving yourself. Let’s see what the pros and cons are.
EXECUTIVE AIRPORT TRANSFERS WITH 1ST CLASS TRANSFER SERVICES
By booking a private transfer you know the exact cost, you can pre-pay so it is one less thing to worry about.
Your driver will track the flight so will know if your delayed or landing early. When you land at the airport your designated driver will be waiting for you and you can set off on your journey straight away without queuing at the car hire desk and dragging your luggage on the bus to the hire car rental or car park you left the car in.
From booking to being picked up the our executive airport transfers service is smooth and hassle-free.
Once in the car, you can sit back and relax until you arrive at your destination and you can forget about transfers for the entire duration of your stay.
1st Class Transfer Services will advise you about the best pick up time for your flights. Our experience means that you don’t have to worry about timings. Our company have child seats for all ages and provide these complimentary.
The main advantage of booking a private transfer is the experience of the driver. They have spent many years driving around the area so they know the roads really well and they also know how to deal with different conditions.
Starting your holiday with driving in heavy traffic or accidents and jams isn’t ideal; your driver also knows the best shortcuts to beat the worst of the holiday traffic and make sure you get to the airport on time.
CAR HIRE / DRIVING YOURSELF
What you need to remember is that there can be extra costs on top of the price that you see on the car hire company’s website.
To start with you will need a big enough car.
If you are taking any sports equipment, like skis or golf clubs then you can’t go for the smallest economy option. Also if you need child seats, sat navy’s or other extras then the hire company will charge extra for these.
You might also need to take out extra insurance for the car; it’s all beginning to add up isn’t it!?
On top of your car hire costs, you also need to remember to add on fuel costs, motorway charges, parking fees, etc.
Before hiring a car, you should ask yourself how you like driving around airports. On motorways and in built-up areas, you need to drop your car off at a major international airport then finding the car rental returns area is not always easy and can lead to panic if you don’t leave yourself enough time.
The other problem is of course that someone has to be the designated driver, for more than one driver you also need to pay extra. So you need someone who is confident enough to drive in a different country and who doesn’t mind missing out on the scenery and a glass of vino at lunch.
You also need to remember that the cost of parking your own car may seem the cheaper option on first look, however take into account the fuel costs, driving yourself in rush hour traffic, waiting for the bus from the car park to the terminal building and last but not least those pesky overnight flights; do you really want to be driving yourself home after a 8 hour flight which may have been delayed?
We think it’s an easy choice on what you should be doing, our executive airport transfers are available and more than affordable for everyone.
No car parking costs, no petrol prices, and no added extras; just a relaxing, luxury transfer with 1st Class Transfer Services.
