One thing many people forget when they go on vacation is what happens at the other end of their flight. Airplanes only take you are far as the airport. What about getting to your final destination, your hotel, or wherever you are staying? Many leave that to the very last minute, usually when they arrive at the other end of their flight. Of course, there are different modes of local transportation for the final part of your journey. Some are better than others. Most involve some sort of hassle. Here at Waikiki Private Transportation, we have a better solution, with a reserved airport shuttle in Oahu, Hawaii. This is the best way to have a stress-free and comfortable transfer from the airport to your hotel. For those of you that have never hired a private airport shuttle before here are a few tips.
Choose the Right Company
First, look for one that has a good reputation. If you know of any friends or family who has gone to the same destination, then ask them for recommendations. Remember, it is always to know who not to hire too. Failing that, you can do an online search.
All shuttle companies have websites. You can check out their reviews and testimonials. Check out the longevity of the companies. Those with a long-established business are still operating because they are offering excellent service. Of course, make sure that they are licensed and insured for the commercial transporting of people.
Check out the vehicles they offer for hire. Any well-established company in the shuttle service business should be able to offer more than one option in regard to size. You don’t want to arrive at the airport exit to find your ride isn’t big enough to accommodate your whole party with luggage too. This is especially true if you have a large family or are traveling with a group.
A choice of vehicle size should be on offer. Before you commit to any reservation make sure that the shuttle company can guarantee that you get the properly sized vehicle that fits your needs. Another point to check out is the reviews of the drivers’ attitudes. Courteous and friendly drivers make your transfer that much smoother.
Flexibility is Important
Find out how flexible the shuttle company is and its policy on cancellations or delays. Although airplane companies operate on strict schedules delays and cancellations do occur for any number of reasons. These are unavoidable events that nobody can predict. Make sure that your shuttle reservation covers either of these eventualities so that you aren’t left stranded.
The airport shuttle service business is competitive, so compare prices and options that they all offer before deciding on which to hire. An example is baby seats for small children or charges for anything extra that you may require.
