Are you thinking about taking a vacation this summer? Have you decided yet on how you're going to get back and forth to the airport? While you could drive yourself to the airport and park in one of the parking lots there, you should consider letting someone else take you. Taking a shuttle to the airport has several advantages over driving your own vehicle. Some of them are as follows:
Avoid getting lost: An airport is a huge complex. Unless you've been to the same airport multiple times before, it's not always clear which parking lot you should use in order to be close to a particular terminal. If parking lot A is full, trying to figure out which overflow lot to use can be an extremely stressful start to your vacation. If you take an airport shuttle to get to where you need to go, the driver will automatically drop you off at the correct terminal. You won't wind up having to rush across the length of the airport because you inadvertently parked in a lot opposite from where you actually needed to be.
Protect your vehicle: Although airport parking lots may have security and security cameras in place, they can't protect your car from everything. Someone could think that they see something appealing and smash your window, and you'd be none the wiser until you got back home. In the meantime, rain could be getting in and damaging your car. But even if nobody breaks into your vehicle, someone could park too close and create a serious dent in your car's body. It's bad enough when this happens at a shopping center, but people at an airport are in even more of a hurry, so they may be even less likely to leave insurance information behind. Protect your car and your wallet by taking an airport shuttle and leaving your vehicle safely behind in the garage.
Arrive on time: In order to make sure that you get through security in time to board your plane, you need to arrive at the airport several hours early. But you also don't want to arrive too early either and wind up needlessly sitting around. When you set up a pre-arranged pickup by an airport shuttle, you tell them what time your flight will leave and they can tell you what time you should be ready by. No more arriving three hours ahead of when you need to and having to sit around doing nothing. You'll get to the airport on time and be able to leave on your vacation.
