Planning a Dream Vacation

Making The Most Of Your Airport Shuttle Ride

by Isabella Stanley

Traveling can be a great way to escape the stress of your day-to-day life while experiencing a new culture and city. If you are planning to travel to a city that requires you to take a flight, you may be worried about transportation between the airport and your hotel. Most major hotel chains offer airport shuttles that can deliver their guests safely.

Here are three tips that you can use to make the most of your next airport shuttle ride.

1. Make reservations for your ride in advance.

Although airport shuttles are available (and often at no charge to hotel guests), you shouldn't count on a shuttle being at the airport to pick you up when you arrive. When booking your flight, it can be beneficial to contact the hotel where you will be staying during your vacation to provide them with a copy of your itinerary.

The hotel's front desk staff will be able to reserve seats for you and your fellow travelers on a shuttle leaving the airport shortly after you arrival to reduce the amount of time you spend waiting once you plane has landed in your destination city.

2. Let the hotel know how many bags you will be bringing along.

To ensure that there is enough seating available for all the guests needing transportation services at a specific time, it can be beneficial to let the hotel know how many bags you will be bringing along with you on your vacation.

If you will have more luggage than the average traveler, letting the hotel know to plan for additional space on your shuttle will prevent you from experiencing any delays when you arrive at the airport after a long flight.

3. Keep some cash with you when riding an airport shuttle.

Many travelers fail to tip their shuttle driver. This failure to compensate the driver for his or her help loading and unloading your luggage is a serious breach of travel etiquette, so it's important that you visit the ATM before boarding the shuttle so that you will have some cash available for tipping.

A good rule of thumb to follow when determining how much cash to pull out of your account is to plan on tipping at least a dollar for each piece of luggage you will be taking with you on the shuttle.

Understanding the ins and outs of airport shuttles like Broadway Cab will help make your next shuttle experience a more pleasant one.
