Choosing the right private airport taxi transfers company can not only help you prevent losing time and money.
Here’s what you should know about private airport transfers, group shuttle, taxi, or uber.
Private Taxi Transfer vs. Group Shuttles
The difference in price between a group shuttle and a private airport transfer doesn’t come close to making up for the difference in time, comfort, convenience, and overall value.
Once you hop off your flight and collect your luggage, you can either:
-Be greeted by your professional driver that driver will help you with the luggage and directly go to your accommodations. Or,
-Search between the crowds for your group shuttle!
-Squish into the back seat of a 12 seater minibus!
-Idle in the parking lot for 50 minutes!
-Hop from one hotel to the next before finally starting your vacation , tired and tattered!
Not to mention the journey back. Who books a private airport transfer can enjoy more time in their hotel or resort and avoid an unnecessarily long trip to the airport.
Realistically, the cost difference between a shared airport transfer and a private one is quite marginal.
If you’re like most Portugueses, your holidays are one of the most important times of the year. So invest your time wisely and get the most out of your hotel, resort or villa.
Private Airport Taxi Transfers vs. Public Taxis and Ubers
While taking a taxi can be a safe, pleasant, and straightforward experience, a pre-booked private airport transfer ensures that your ground transportation will be all of those things.
If you don’t have a pre-booked airport transfer until your arrival can leave you vulnerable to high taxi rates and communication challenges. Besides that, you’ll be competing with innumerable other travellers looking for last-minute transportation.
Some rideshare apps or companies allow travellers to book a trip in advance, however, there is some details you should be aware of. Even Uber rides are subject to last-minute surge charges, and only offer trip reservations in limited regions.
