Whether you’re heading in or out of Boston’s Logan International Airport, you’re always looking for the best, easiest and most cost effective way to the airport. You can ask a friend, but seriously, friends don’t make friends drive them to the airport. So what are the options?
Drive and park is an obvious option, but it’s not exactly easy. When you park at the airport for 24 hours and 1 minute the rate is $41, then you pay $27 for each additional day. It adds up pretty quickly. Plus you get to deal with the angst of driving in traffic, finding a place to park and then schlepping yourself and your luggage to the right terminal. When you get back you get to play, “find my car” in the maze of parking spaces. It can be a major hassle.
Parking is only $7/day and your round trip fare is $22. Not a bad option cost wise. However, you do have to get to the bus early, wait up to 30 minutes, drive in circles around the airport, stopping at every terminal and then drag your luggage on and off the bus. If you have the time and energy, it’s a viable option.
For most passengers their first instinct is to jump in a cab. But, before you do that, you have to wait in a line and then hope the rate is reasonable. The fact is, the Boston Globe reported in March of 2013 that Boston has the “highest taxi rates among major US cities.” And as far as insurance coverage goes, the Globe report said, “Passengers in city cabs are put at direct financial risk because cab owners are allowed to buy the bare minimum bodily injury insurance —not even half the coverage required of bike messengers.” (Le Limo has a $2 million liability policy.)
Once you hail a cab outside the airport, the driver will often charge you a flat rate. Well the flat rates aren’t regulated by the city. And to complicate things, different cab companies charge different flat rates. You don’t know what the fee will be until you get in the cab.
Sure we’re biased, but the fact is we quote one all-inclusive flat-fee based on the driving distance. We give you a rate that includes the fuel surcharge, the tolls, the Massport fee and the recommended gratuity to the driver. We also let you know if early AM fees apply.
