Why You Shouldn't Fly

Sep 16, 2008
Travelling can be done in millions of different ways. From flying in an airplane to riding a bike, as long as it gets you there, it will be considered a form or transportation. If your future foresees a plane trip and you don't necessarily want to take it and want to find alternative ways, there are a few reasons you shouldn't fly an airplane.

So many alternatives - If you're travelling within your country and you don't need to cross a major body of water to get there, try thinking of all of the alternatives. From driving to riding on a train, there are so many cheap alternatives that you may find yourself liking. Check out travel guides to see what other travelers recommend.

Save the hassle - Flying can be a pain in the butt when it comes to security. When you get to the airport, you have no idea how long you're going to have to wait in line and who knows how long they will keep you there to check you out if you seem suspicious. Travelling via a car is the way to go if you want to avoid finding parking, waiting in line, and sitting next to a smelly person.

Skip the fees - Flying isn't cheap and I'm sure you've noticed this by checking out the airline tickets. From a fuel surcharge to paying the ridiculous charges itself, the fees add up quick. After the airline tickets, you're going to have to pay per day for parking, food at the airport, and then on top of that, you'll have to get a rental car when you land for your trip. Sometimes, it sounds so much easier to avoid the trouble of flying.

You know where everything is - If you're going to travel with your family, you're going to have your luggage and everything else in order to enjoy your vacation. When you travel via the train or car, you'll know where your bags are at all times. If you're flying connecting flights, you may find that your luggage isn't there anymore when you land. If you don't have your luggage, how are you going to enjoy vacation with only one set of clothing? And since the airline companies don't care, you're just going to have to waste half of your vacation looking for your bags or new clothes.

Be comfortable - When you're flying, you're never going to know who you're going to be sitting next to. Even though you have tickets with your family, it doesn't mean you're going to sit together. The airlines can make you move, so your ticket number means nothing. When you drive, you'll know exactly who you're with and you can do anything without annoying people you don't know.

Now, I know flying has its perks but there are so many perks to taking another route like a train or automobile. The next time you book your vacation, try and look into these options to see if it's something your family would enjoy. Remember; don't knock it until you try it.
