If you booked a plane ticket today, congratulations. You’re off to explore the country or even the world. Whether you’re traveling for work or pleasure, getting out of town is a great way for one to explore new sites and meet new people. If you’re considering driving your car to the airport, here are a few things you have to consider:

The Price

The price of long-term parking is expensive and only continues to increase. Factor in a number of days you’ll be gone and the price only continues to spike.


Your car will be left in the lot for an extended period of time, and while there is a certain amount of security at each airport long-term parking lot, that doesn’t guarantee that your vehicle will be completely safe from break-ins, weather damage, or other damages.


Driving to the airport and leaving your car in a long-term lot means that you’ll have to account for at least an extra 1-2 hours of travel time. You’ll have to park your car, wait for an airport shuttle to take you to the airport, and find your gate while juggling backs, coats, and even children.

That being said, you have another option. Consider hiring a chauffeured service to start your travels out right.

Save Money

Taking the number of days you’ll be gone and the cost of long-term parking into consideration, you’ll most likely save money by hiring a chauffeured service to escort you and your family to the airport.

Ensure Your Safety

Your vehicle can stay at home, which means that you won’t have to worry about any potential damages taking place while you’re away. Your driver will be professional and expertly trained, so you can relax on your way to the airport rather than worrying about traffic and other dangers of the highway.


Rather than worrying about parking, taking the shuttle, and allotting for extra travel time, take it easy and let one of the drivers at the Franklin Chauffer pick you and your family up at your doorstep. We’ll ensure that you arrive at your flight early so that you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your entire travel experience.
