What’s the Most Cost-Effective Transportation Option for Early Flights?

Early flights can be a hassle, no matter where you’re going or who you’re traveling with. Perhaps the most stressful part, however, is determining how to get to the airport on time for your departure. Typically, there are three possible options: driving yourself and parking at the airport, booking a nearby hotel and using an airport shuttle, or scheduling private transportation from a reputable car service. But which scenario is best in terms of cost and convenience? Let’s take a closer look!

The Cost of a Hotel Stay

A hotel room can cost anywhere from $100 to $400, depending on the location and quality of accommodations. Even so, there’s more inconvenience associated with a hotel stay than the actual bill. Common issues include:

  • Time – Finding the right hotel takes time and requires thoughtful consideration. Before making a selection, you’ll need to read customer reviews, search for available rooms, and more.
  • Food – Eating out is an additional expense that can add $50 to $100 to your hotel stay, depending on the size of your group and how many meals you will need.
  • Parking – If you drive to the hotel, you’ll need to leave your car at the hotel or airport while you are away. Neither option is free; in fact, both hotel and airport parking are notoriously expensive.
  • Airport Shuttles – Many hotels offer airport shuttles as an added convenience for traveling customers. However, this amenity is not always free, and you likely won’t be able to choose what time the shuttle takes you to the airport. Additionally, you’ll have to share space with other passengers, which can be an added hassle, especially when you have luggage with you.

The Cost of Driving Yourself

To avoid the costs of a hotel, you might consider driving yourself to the airport. However, this option comes with its own set of inconveniences. Whether you’ll be parking at the airport for one day or one week, you’ll have a bill to pay when you return from your trip. Depending on your location, you can expect to pay anywhere from $9 to $28 per day. Not to mention, you’ll have to deal with the stresses of navigation, traffic, and locating an open parking spot at your terminal.
