The Rise of the Airport Transfers Industry

A few years ago the airport transfers industry did not really exist, prior to the internet the only way to book your holiday was to either shop around travel agents with armfuls of brochures looking for the best package holiday deal or for the technology-conscious , to sit in front of Ceefax. Endlessly trawling through page after page of deals quickly trying to note down the destination, price, phone number and check wherever they were ATOL approved before the page flicked from page 5 of 55 if you were not quick enough you knew you would have to sit there for 20 minutes waiting for it to come back round again. Then when you did call them about a Ceefax deal you were inevitably told "oh sorry, that one has just gone but we have got an almost identical one for an extra £ 200".

Fortunately those days are long gone and the rise of the internet means that the holiday transport industry is thriving and airport transfers popularity grows stronger every year. Because so much information is at our fingertips and we no longer have to take the word of travel agents that they are giving us the best package deal they have available, we feel brave enough to delve into our holidays and get real value for money. By booking airport transfers, flights and accommodation separately we can save hundreds of pounds off the price of a package holiday, and not only do you save a money, you feel a sense of achievement that you know exactly where your hard earned money is going.

The airport transfers included in package holidays were often grossly inflated in cost, when in reality some deals start from under £ 3 depending on the destination and form of carriage you want. Airport transfers with private taxis etc can cost more, but for a basic coach ride to your hotel or apartment the costs are really low. The choice of reputable airport transfers companies out there is wide ranging and intensive and because of this competition, costs are very low and almost any worldwide destination can be accommodated. If you want to save money on your holiday, then sourcing your own airport transfers is a great place to start.
