Car vs. GoOpti / Pros & Cons

Driving to the airport with your car sometimes looks like the most comfortable choice. It gives you the freedom to choose the time of departure freely and to travel at your own pace and in the privacy of your own vehicle. However, there are always two sides of the medal. Travelling to the airport with your car also means that you (can) meet unexpected traffic congestions that can make your journey to the airport a pretty hectic experience. We listed some of the most common situations that may occur on the journey to the airport and compared the ride with your car to the ride with GoOpti. Take a look!

Unexpected traffic situations

Own car
In case of congestions, you are stuck in the traffic jam, maybe praying it would soon be over …
GoOpti
GoOpti vans are constantly being monitored via GPS by the Operations center and in case of traffic congestions, the operations officer (also called guardian angel by the drivers) calls the driver immediately, offering a detour through some local roads. This allows the GoOpti van to get to the airport faster and more safely.

Really bad traffic jams

Well, tough luck, you will probably miss your flight.

Tolls, gas, airport parking … travel costs can become enormous …

Own car
If you purchased your plane ticket quite cheaply, wait until you reach the airport to sing victory. It can be quite expensive to drive to the airport if you add all the costs of the toll, gas and parking at the airport. At some airports, prices can skyrocket, leaving a bad taste in your mouth.

GoOpti
GoOpti uses vehicles for 8 people or more and so far, by joining several people in the same vehicle, it has contributed to saving more than 12,000t of CO2 emissions.
