Travel – it’s the pain in your side, the thorn in your paw, the blistering boil you’re desperate to lance…
And yet we all have to do it unless if you don’t want to be stuck within 10 minutes of your hometown.
Whether it’s the daily commute, a vacation to London, a high-flying business trip or a taxi ride on a night out, each and every one of us is forced to travel every day.
Wouldn’t you prefer to be at home, resting in your comfiest pajamas, a warm mug of cocoa in your hands, your favorite Netflix series, and a log fire roaring at you like a scene from Backdraft?
In an ideal world, yes – but we’ve all got to be on the move
These are travel companies that know the score when it comes to convenience, comfort and great customer service.
Travel in Luxury
To help you travel in luxury the way you deserve, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite options and placed them in a handy list.
Take a look, change out of
Tourists need taxis in big cities like bees need honey. Without a handy black cab or friendly rickshaw driver, the chances of you getting from A to B without a map and compass are virtually nil.
Enter an app like Gett, a derivative of Uber that, for our money, is far superior and the best way to travel in luxury.
Essentially, Gett is a taxi order app that allows you to track your driver to see how far they are from your location. It also allows you to pay electronically, meaning you won’t have to stop off at a bank machine before you reach your destination.
This is a travel app for the contactless generation, and it’s a must-download whenever you’re commuting around a major city.
Airport parking is about as much fun as the measles, especially if you’re visiting a flight hub that’s larger than most capital cities.
You’ll have to drive in more circles than in Glenrothes (roundabout capital of the UK, fact fans) simply to find a space, before traipsing to your terminal with your bags in tow.
No one needs that before a long trip. Never fear, Looking4.com has found a perfect solution that will let you travel in luxury without all the stress.
This airport parking provider can pick up your car directly from your terminal and park it for you, saving bundles of time and stress.
It’s a true VIP experience – just remember to book long before you’re due to catch your flight.
Catching the bus isn’t usually a luxury experience – but one startup is aiming to change that.
Leap Transit has been launching luxury buses in the San Francisco area, and it’s an initiative that’s proving to be a massive hit.
Included on the bus is a cafe, super-comfy seats and Wi-Fi. Now that’s how you travel in luxury!
Tickets are $6 – let’s hope this startup goes global.
