Tips for Traveling in the 21st Century

Get Around the Ancient World in 21st-Century Style

Are you planning a trip to Athens?  The hip and relatively new transportation company, Uber, started in Athens 10 months ago. It’s just starting to catch on, so there aren’t as many Uber Rides as taxi rides (at the time of this post), but if you can get one, they are half the price of a Taxi when traveling to and from the airport…and a lot nicer ride.  

For getting around the city, Taxis are reasonably priced and very accessible.  However, that initial ride from the airport to the city can get pricey. The taxis queued at the airport entrance charge a flat rate for transportation into the city center, but it’s not cheap. Even though stepping out of the airport and into a taxi is definitely convenient, it’s good to know there are cheaper ways to go.

If you have not yet used Uber, it’s a transportation service run entirely through an app on your phone. Your GPS will provide your pickup location, so all you have to do is enter your destination address and the app will locate Uber drivers nearby. It will estimate the cost of your travel, and payment is made entirely through the app, so you don’t need to worry about passing cash. The Uber app also lets you choose the type of vehicle you want to ride in, from a classic sedan to a larger SUV (we know you brought the big suitcase).

If you like to ride in style, you may elect for a transfer with Prestige Limousine Service. This company has excellent reviews for great quality services, punctuality, and knowledge about the city. Their prices are per trip, not per person, and all of their drivers speak English. They offer a range of vehicles to choose from to fit your needs and style.

One of the many perks of working with a travel agent is that they take care of your airport transfers for you. They know the ins and outs of all of the options and will help you choose the option that is best for you, and they will ensure you get the best possible price.  

Travel agents save you money and a LOT of time. They also make your trip more enjoyable by removing the hassles and headaches, custom tailoring everything to your needs, desires, tastes, and budget, and ensuring that you don’t miss out on any of the best experiences that particular destination has to offer.
