Thanks to the convenience of modern aeronautical technology, travelling across—or even around—the world has never been easier. But in order to do so, you’ve got to get yourself down to the airport, and while this seems like a straightforward activity on the surface, there are a lot of different things to consider. That’s why we’re going to look at some of the alternative modes of transportation and see how they stack up to getting down to Pearson International, or any other terminals in the GTA, in an airport limo.
Using Your Own Vehicle
Driving yourself to the airport is almost always the last resort option for many people. And it’s so unfavourable for a number of reasons. It’s not very convenient to drive yourself down to the airport, if for no other reason than this means, at the end of the trip, you’re going to have to drive yourself back. While you may feel you rely on yourself the most, this puts you at a disadvantage. It costs you more money as you’ll have to pay for your parking until you return. Worse still, if other members of the household rely on that vehicle, you are depriving them of access to it until you return.
Being Dropped Off by Friends or Family
This option is less of an inconvenience for you and your car, but it also means you need people willing to be able to meet your travel schedule to make this feasible. In some cases, your family may insist on seeing you off and greeting you at the airport, in which case, this is the only true solution. Frequent travellers, however, will quickly find this impractical because it makes too many demands on loved ones, and you’re vulnerable to miscommunication.
Here’s where we get to taxis, ride-sharing services like Uber, and airport limousines. A lot of these choices depends on where your priorities lie. If money is a definite concern, then a taxi or Uber may be the better choice. But, like many things, you get what you pay for. When you call for a cab or use your Uber app, you are paying less to get whoever is available and willing to drive you down to the airport.
When you reserve an airport limousine, you are getting the benefit of securing a premium company to serve you. So, you’ll enjoy a smooth ride, with no issues about the quality of the vehicle, plenty of room for your luggage, as well as any additional passengers, and a trained, licensed, professional driver.
An airport limo is the more expensive choice but brings with it more security, comfort, and peace of mind. Every driver is fully vetted, the vehicles themselves are meticulously maintained and cleaned, and regardless of whether you want to go to Pearson International or Billy Bishop in downtown Toronto, you’ll get there in style, in comfort, and ultimately, on time. If you want the safest, most convenient airport transportation, go with an airport limousine!
