Skip the Flights! 5 Reasons Why Chauffeured Transportation May Be Better for Winter Travel

1. With rare exceptions, ground transportation can be “delayed” but not “canceled.”

What do you do when your flight has been canceled entirely and you find yourself stranded at the airport? At that stage, you’re likely to have to either book a hotel room or just wait at the terminal. Flight delays are considerable and flights can be canceled entirely; with a chauffeured ride, you’ll know that you’ll get there.

2. Chauffeured transportation does not require security screenings or check-ins.

Airport delays are at their worst during the holidays — and it doesn’t matter where you’re going to or where you’re coming from. You may find yourself spending more time in security screenings, check-ins, baggage weigh-ins and waiting at the gate than actually flying!

3. You can take as much luggage as you can fit in the car.

If you’re taking holiday gifts with you, well, they’re probably not going to fit in a plane. With a chauffeured transportation option, you can pack in quite a lot to bring with you. And, even better, you’re not going to have to pay exorbitant baggage fees — and you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your items will not be lost or stolen and that they are safe.

4. You can ensure that the kids are comfortable.

Taking the kids? You probably know already how difficult it can be to have children on a plane. Using a vehicle rather than a plane means that you don’t need to worry about your energetic child making a fuss, kicking the back of the seat in front of them or crying loud enough to bother others — you can just relax on the way to your destination.

5. You pay for a ride rather than a fare for each person.

If you’re traveling in a large group, chauffeured transportation may be a great deal less expensive than a plane. You don’t need to buy a ticket for each person, after all! Thus, chauffeured transportation can actually be much cheaper than almost any travel option, when split into a group.

You won’t know how affordable taking chauffeured transportation can be without asking for a quote! With ever-increasing airlines costs, you may find that it’s a great deal less expensive than buying a ticket.
