Simple Solutions to International Airport Transfer

December 12, 2011   Filed under Travel

Travelling in foreign states can be extremely difficult and stressed especially when you don’t know the language. The worst part by a long way is the bothering fear of everything going horribly wrong. This is generally at its worst as you are flying into the airport and now have to decode the labyrinth of customs aisles and bag directions.

If you can make it through customs and are legally authorized to enter the country you are only a part of the way there. The genuine difficulty comes when trying to figure out how you will get out of the airport.

If you are fortunate you will have looked into limousines before you left and employed a limousine service who has a driver standing outside the arrival gate holding a chunk of cardboard with your last name written on it.

For the less prepared travelling minded step 1 when attempting to leave the airport is to find an airport shuttle bus or taxi stand to take you either to a vehicle rental destination or your hotel. Occasionally when flying globally you might need to jump on a connecting domestic flight in a far away terminal that may be in another part of the city. Fortunately there are generally international transfers and luggage transfers if you can manage to decode enough signage to use these services.

It is sure to be a smart idea to check shuttle timetables before your leave but if you haven’t had an opportunity for that just go to a help desk and ask. Most states have info desks with friendly staff who will show you exactly where to go. The only country I have discovered which lacks this service is the US.

Finding a cost-effective airport transfer service and regular shuttle service can be quite difficult in some nations as both taxi and bus drivers a like will live upon gullible foreigners and take them for all they’re worth. That explains why it is usually a smart idea to go with the bigger airport transfer companies instead of smaller airport services who are likely to change their name or go into bankruptcy in a short amount of months.

If you can afford it the best answer is always to rent cars for you and your accompanying visitors but that brings in the cryptic driving customs of each country. At least after all of the mess and adventure it is going to be easy to hire a home pick up service when you get back home.
