When we fly off for an adventure, the most challenging part of the journey can often be the final leg – from the airport to our destination. Airports are often located quite some distance from the place we are intending to stay, and getting there can be something of a minefield. There are a number of different ways to get from an airport to our accommodation – but which airport transfer option should you choose? Well, as recently discovered on a trip to Geneva, Uptransfers could be a great choice. To explain why, let’s take a look at five ways to get from the airport to your destination:
Hiring your own car at the airport may seem, at first glance, to be an excellent idea. Having your own car will give you the freedom to explore independently once you arrive. But hiring and driving your own vehicle comes at a cost – not just financially but also in terms of time and energy. If you are staying in a city, driving to your accommodation can mean lots of traffic and sometimes traffic jams. Navigating city traffic can be a nightmare, especially after a long flight! Why not let someone else do the work?
Airports (like Geneva) are often graced with a wonderful public transport system. Buses and trains are often among the cheapest ways to reach your destination from the airport. It has to be said, however, that they are not always the most comfortable or relaxing way to travel. Navigating the timetables and understanding the system can be a challenge for international travellers. Again, this can be the last thing you want to have to deal with after your flight. Fortunately, there are other options.
Free Hotel Shuttles
Some hotels offer free shuttles which will pick you up at the airport and drop you off where you will be staying during your stay. But what if you are not staying at one of the hotels that offers this service? You might be staying at a lower budget hotel, a guest house or B&B… even camping. If so, these free shuttle buses will not usually be an option available to you. So what should you do?
Taxi or Uber
Some international visitors will head straight for the taxi rank. But this is likely to be a less reliable and usually more expensive way to go. You could choose to hire a private taxi, or to hail an Uber, which is increasingly a popular choice in many cities around the world. But there is a lot of variability in terms of both price and reliability with private taxis and Uber. You may find yourself paying over the odds, or, worse still, enduring a white-knuckle ride.
Private Transfers Like Uptransfers
Private transfers, such as those offered by Uptransfers, are a great solution for those who want an easy yet cost-effective and safe way to reach their destination. It is possible to book a reliable, low-cost, door-to-door transfer from Geneva airport to the city – to hotels, holiday villas, holiday apartments or private addresses. You will travel in style in Uptranfer’s modern fleet of fully licensed and insured taxis, minivans, minibuses and coaches. Surely, this is the easiest airport transfer option.
