If you are traveling to a destination that requires air travel, you will need to decide what ground transportation you will use once you arrive to the city. You have a number of options, including the following:
- Rental car
- Limousine service
The first question you will need to ask yourself is how much travel will I need to do in this city? If it is only a small amount then probably will not make sense to rent a car. The next question you will need to ask, is what is your budget for the trip? If you can afford it, limousine travel is a very comfortable way to travel around the city. Everything is taken care for you, from directions to your hotel, to taking the best route to avoid traffic. It is also a very luxurious way to travel. You will not have to worry that anything, as long as the limo chauffeur is professional and well trained. We traveled to Orlando last year and found a great deal from Lakeland Limo Services out of Lakeland. The owner Sam was really good to work with, and it was worth the extra money!
Taxicabs are generally cheaper than limousines, but are also not nearly as comfortable and you will not get personalized service. If you’re traveling for business and you need to impress clients, then limo travel is the way to go. It will definitely impress your group and make a very positive impression.
If you’re going to be in town for a number of days it will probably make sense to rent a car. We recommend doing this online so you can compare prices and find a really good deal. Depending on the time of year, you can usually find some outstanding deals from rental car companies. Make sure you shop around and find the best deal, and it also depends on the size of the car you need.
Here are the factors to consider when determining the best option for ground travel:
- How long will I be in town?
- What size vehicle do I need?
- How well do I know the city?
- What is my budget?
If you do choose a taxicab for travel service, make sure you do your research and choose one that has an excellent reputation and good safety record. We have all heard stories of cab drivers kidnapping or attacking their passengers, so do you research to ensure safe travel. They are always a little scary because you really don’t know the taxi company, so get some references as well.
In the final analysis, if you can afford limousine travel, it is always the way to go. It is very comfortable, generally reliable, and you will feel pampered on your trip like nothing else. And if you are traveling for a big occasion, like an anniversary or wedding, then it is nearly a must if you can possibly afford it. It just makes the trip so much fun and very exciting.
