Is a Wine Tour Worth the Money?

It can be hard to justify the cost of some services in the Internet age. Why pay a travel agent when a simple web search can yield 10 different prices for flights? Why pay for a handyman when an instructional video on-line shows you exactly how to replace a toilet? Some people even wonder whether it’s worth it to pay for tour guides when so much information about places is available through web searches. There is a cost difference in paying for a wine tour versus creating your own custom wine tour. Many people look at this as an opportunity to save some money. In truth, it might be worth double-checking what you’re missing out on while saving that money.

How to Solve the Biggest Problems with Airport Shuttles

Of all the airport transportation services, out there the airport shuttle seems like the best bet at first glance. A shared shuttle cuts down on per rider costs, and they’re available 24/7. Starting to think a little more critically about it, that shared service is part of the downsides of airport shuttles. Shared Cost, Shared Ride The concept of the airport shuttle is a shared ride with the total cost split between riders. That means you’re essentially calling a group taxi with no idea who is in the group, or where they are. The shuttle will pick you up, either before or after some other people. Hopefully everybody’s luggage fits. Also, hopefully everyone has cleaned up for the trip. While there may be a small money savings here, the soft costs of sharing the ride to the airport may outweigh the monetary savings. All the Comforts of Mass Transit Airport […]

Why The World Would End Without Airport Transportation

It’s a nice day. You’ve just finished your flight, picked up your luggage from the baggage claim and walked your way up and out to ground transportation.

You have to. The rental car […]
