Do Your Homework

In airplaneIf you’re planning a trip, the best thing you can do is research. The beauty of the Internet age is that there’s a wealth of information right before your fingertips. Whether you’re looking for hotels, restaurants, or things to do, you can learn from other travelers’ experiences online.

If your vacation plans bring you to the D.C. area, contact Affinity Airport Sedan, Inc. We’ll promptly pick you up from the airport and give you a ride to your destination. You have enough trip planning to worry about. Leave the driving to us.

Study reviews from travelers

To get the most out of your trip, study other travelers’ reviews. Web sites like TripAdvisor, Oyster.com, TravelPost, and Yelp offer thousands, if not millions, of customer reviews. A disturbing trend may become apparent when several reviews in a row complain of unsanitary hotel conditions. Similarly, several rave reviews for a new restaurant could mean it’s worth checking out.

While it’s handy to have so many reviews on hand, it’s important to remain objective. Reviewers all have different tastes and expectations. It’s important to determine if a reviewer is coming from your same frame of mind. Plus, any establishment can have a major slip-up now and then. Perhaps a negative review was based on a one-time fluke instead of a sub-par operation. Also be sure to check out the dates of the reviewer’s posts. An establishment may have closed, moved, or be under new management since the review was written.

Read travel forums

Many travelers have come to rely on travel forums to guide their travel experiences. Forums like those run by Lonely Planet, Chowhound, and Frommers all share valuable destination advice. Plus, reading threads about your destination city is a great way to uncover information wouldn’t have otherwise considered.

If your travel research brings you to the Maryland or D.C. areas, call Affinity Airport Sedan, Inc.  Our exclusive, professional shuttle service can pick you up from the airport and get you to your destination. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
