The old Cunard line used to say that “Getting there is half the fun.” But anyone who’s endured the challenges and indignities of air travel know that getting to the airport can sap your strength, if not your wallet. Consider the alternatives.
A car service is certainly convenient from my hometown of Darien. But at $110 one way to LaGuardia, $140 to JFK and $150-plus to Newark, getting to the airport can often cost more than your air fare. (Mind you, these are the advertised rates, so I wouldn’t be shy about asking for promotions and discounts when you call to book. It’s a competitive business).
