Planes, Fly the Friendly Skies
39 times about Park City...yes there really is that much to see and do there. Traveling by plane can be positive or negative. Yes, it's sometimes faster then driving your car, yes there are places you can fly that you can't drive your car, yes it's more expensive then driving your car........with a few exceptions.
How do you determine whether or not to fly or drive when making a trip?
- How far are you traveling, how many tanks of gas would it take to get there, and how long in terms of hours? Explore that fully. Gas isn't cheap, and depending on the distance you're traveling you may need to factor in a hotel stay. You also need to factor in how many times will you be stopping to eat, and how many mouths are you feeding. Some trips can be cheaper to fly.
- Will you need a car once you're there? Most likely and so now you also need to add the cost of a car rental.
- Time is important, you hate to lose valuable vacation time traveling; but even though plane's are considered to be quickier; you can still loose a whole day traveling. Example: If a car trip is around 6-8 hours, it's not much longer then a plane ride to the same location. Arrive at the airport 1hour earlier then your flight, go through security, board, and actual flight time, wait for your luggage, wait again for your rental, drive to your location....that can come pretty close to how long it would take you to drive. So here the determining factor might come down to how many people are traveling.
