Traveling? Avoid hassle and book a taxi transfer.

by Kim on July 27, 2017

Traveling has a long list of pros and cons and in my opinion the pros heavily outweigh the cons. But one thing I never enjoy doing is landing at an airport, often after a very long flight from which I am exhausted, jet-lagged and desperate to get to a hotel room, and then have to figure out how to get to that hotel. When I land after an international flight I really just want to snap my fingers and magically appear in a bed instead of trying to figure out how to get from point A to point B. At many airports there are public transportation options, of course, and many more provide taxi service, but depending on where you land you might not always know how trustworthy the taxi service is.

It’s a well-known scam all over the world for taxi drivers to take the long way, charging their riders significantly more than necessary. Not only is this a waste of money, but it’s the last thing you want to deal with when you’ve just landed in a new city or country. Likewise, you can hop on a bus or train to get to your hotel, but it can often be confusing to navigate a new city, especially if you don’t speak the language.

If you don’t want to deal with the taxi line or navigate public transportation there is another option called The way it works is that you go to the website, find the route you want, book a transfer online and then the driver will meet you at the appointed time and place at the airport (the driver will hold a nameplate so you know the car is for you). With this service you’re able to choose the class of car you want and, if you’re traveling with a child, you can even order a car seat. Because the trip is a fixed price you don’t have to worry that you’re being taken for a ride—literally and figuratively. Even if you’re stuck in a traffic jam during the trip the cost of your ride will not go up. Booking a service like this is a wonderful option for any traveler that just wants to get to their hotel without any hassle.
