January 30th, 2014
If you are planning to travel to Toronto in the near future, you are sure to enjoy your visit. You can guarantee that your trip will be a success by working out the logistics of your trip before you leave.
Use this arrival and departure guide to help you take care of all the details for your travel to Toronto.
Toronto Pearson International Airport is the major airport in the Toronto area. It is also the busiest airport in Canada, and among the top 30 busiest airports in the world.
More than 65 airlines operate out of Pearson, traveling to more than 180 destinations across the globe.
When you arrive at Pearson Airport, locate a baggage map. This will direct you to the proper baggage claim area where you can retrieve your luggage.
From there, you can make your way to the many ground transportation options.
Navigating your way through an unfamiliar city is often the most stressful part of traveling.
There are several ways that you can arrange transportation from the airport to your hotel or other destination.
Airport taxis and minivans are available. You will find a queue of these taxis located outside the airport, or you can call ahead to arrange service.
The fare for a taxi ride from the airport to downtown can be quite costly, though; you should expect to pay $50 - $70, plus tip. A tip of 15 - 20% is customary and appropriate.
For your own safety, never accept a ride from anyone who approaches you offering transportation inside the airport.
Many travelers find that struggling to get their luggage in and out of a taxi is cumbersome and a hassle. You may find that limo service to and from the airport is much more comfortable and convenient, as well as cost-effective.
You can arrange airport transfer service by contacting 5 Star Limousine. Sedans and stretch limousines are available.
All vehicles are always driven by a professional chauffeur who will deliver you safely and promptly. The chauffeur will assist you with your baggage so that you can relax and enjoy your visit.
When your trip is coming to an end and it is time to depart, you can take a few steps to make sure that your return flight experience goes smoothly.
Most airlines offer online check-in services. You can usually check in online 24 hours prior to your flight.
Since Pearson is such a busy airport, checking in online can save you a lot of time and hassle.
Be sure to allow plenty of time to get to the airport. If you have scheduled airport transportation service with 5 Star Limousine, your chauffeur will arrange an appropriate pick-up time and make sure that you are delivered to the airport in plenty of time to get through security and make your flight.
Store your identification and travel documents in a safe and handy location so that you can quickly and easily provide them to airport staff. This will help you to get through security efficiently.
Check that your luggage meets size restrictions and is labeled with your name and contact information. Remove any old baggage claim tags from your luggage to prevent confusion.
Taking these steps will help to ensure a smooth and enjoyable trip to Toronto. If you need to arrange airport transportation services, contact 5 Star Limousine.
