The Benefits of Using a Taxi Company for Airport Transfers
Unless you go on a package tour you will need to sort out how you will get from the airport to your accommodation. While most airports run a bus service that will take passengers into the local town, the bus will not stop at everyone’s apartment, guest house or hotel as a package tour bus would do. The best way to get a transfer from the airport to your chosen accommodation is to use a taxi company.
Most taxi companies use a standard fee for airport transfers within a certain radius. If you call beforehand to pre-book a taxi they should be able to tell you there and then just how much the transfer will cost. The benefits you get from using a taxi company rather than the airport bus, is that you will get picked up from the airport and then driven to the door of your accommodation. If you choose to go by bus, you could be facing a walk of half a mile or more, or the added cost of a hackney cab from the bus stop area to your accommodation. Taking a taxi when you get off the bus could mean that you are spending more on transfers than you would have done if you had booked a taxi to start with.
Using a taxi for airport transfers is extremely convenient. You get a trolley to take your luggage to the waiting car, get in, and off you go. When you reach your accommodation all you have to do is get your luggage through the door and you are home and dry. If you use a bus and then a taxi you’ll be faced with loading and unloading your luggage twice and you could face an extended wait for a cab once you get off the bus. If you book a taxi ahead of time there will be no worries about how you are going to get from the airport to where you are staying, or returning from the airport to your home.
One of the benefits of taking a taxi, and one that is often overlooked, is that the taxi driver will be very familiar with the local area and will probably know exactly where your accommodation is located. Most taxi drivers are friendly and can be a fund of local knowledge, especially useful if you are new to an area. If you are travelling to somewhere in Scotland, using a taxi company for your airport transfer is by far the most sensible way of doing things. Visitors may not always recognise that some locations are off the beaten track and difficult to find once you alight from the airport bus. A local taxi driver will know the area and will do his or her best to get you to your destination by the shortest possible route, because time is money. While there is the occasional rogue taxi driver who will take you the longest way round, the vast majority of drivers are trying to make an honest living and will do their best to get you to your accommodation as quickly as possible.
