Airport Shuttle Options at The Pensacola Airport

pensacola airport shuttle transportationThe Pensacola airport is a relatively small airport located in Northeast Pensacola. However, for a small airport, it is one of the busiest airports in Florida. Much of the traffic is due to tourism in the busy season which starts in March and ends in October. Most flyers are taking vacations in areas such as Pensacola Beach, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Destin. Your Able Shuttle Service options are an airport taxi or airport shuttle. Airport taxis are available in a line outside the airport. The advantage of an airport taxi is it’s convenience. One disadvantage is that they are going to be the more expensive option for ground transportation. Another disadvantage is that not all take credit cards. Airport shuttle services are available by appointment. Although, they lack the convenience of being able to grab one after you leave the airport, there are a few advantages. One nice thing about a shuttle is that you will almost always get a better vehicle at a better rate. An airport shuttle is meant to be an upgrade over a taxi. They will also give you peace of mind, because you can check them out before you make a reservation and learn a little about them. Reviews are always available online through Google and some shuttle companies will have reviews on their website. Unfortunately, you will not have this luxury if you take some random taxi at the airport.

Airport Shuttle Rates Versus a Taxi

shuttleWhen you are planning a vacation to the Pensacola area and arranging air travel to the Pensacola Airport, you should also plan your transportation to or from the airport. As said before, a taxi is a great convenience after leaving the airport after a long flight. And they are probably going to be the best option if you are traveling a few blocks or maybe a few miles down the road, but it is not always the best option for a distance of 20 miles or more. Remember that a taxi charges by meter which calculates your fare by time and distance. Thus, the amount you pay will not only be higher in heavy traffic, but you are going to have to hope you have an honest driver that does not take you “the long way”. With an airport shuttle, you will always be quoted a flat rate, so never have to worry about the rate you will pay. It will never change. You also have to think about security as well. Especially if you are a woman traveling alone. Many women traveling alone feel much safer when they have a ride arranged in advance. This way they can research the company and choose the shuttle company that makes them feel the most comfortable And they can let their friends and family know who they are riding with. If you decide not to plan your transportation and take some random taxi, you also have to understand the risk that goes with it.
