Are you planning on visiting Oakland, California in the near future? Oakland is a gorgeous place to visit during any time of year. However, you might be wondering how you’re going to get to your hotel from the airport in Oakland, especially if your hotel isn’t very close by. Here are a few suggestions that will help you with your transportation in the bright side of the Bay.
Take Public Transportation
Your first and most inexpensive option for getting to your hotel from the Oakland airport is using public transportation. There are many different bus routes they travel throughout the city, and many of them stop by the airport due to a large number of their passengers being travelers. Figuring out which bus or public transportation to take will take a little bit of planning and forethought. However, once you are at the airport the process should be pretty simple, and you’ll be at your hotel in no time.
Rent a Car
Car rentals are more expensive than most alternatives, but they provide you with privacy and flexibility as you’re traveling around California. Be aware that there are some different cost limitations on car rentals. Using a debit card to rent a car usually places a hold on your account for the amount of the rental. Also, if you’re younger than 25, you might have some additional surcharges and cost for your rental. But, if you want to have flexibility as you’re traveling, a rental car will be the best option for you.
Take Your Hotel Shuttle
If you know that you’ll need to be traveling directly to your hotel from the airport, check to see if your hotel provides an airport shuttle. Many hotels that aren’t too far away from the airport try to provide this service for their guests. Sometimes, you might need to pay a little bit more to book a hotel that has an airport shuttle, but this cost is well worth it if you don’t want to brave public transportation or pay extra for a rental car.
So, if you know that you’ll be traveling to Oakland in the near future, make sure that you save this article so you know how to get to and from your hotel. Remember that you can take public transportation, rent a car, or take your hotel shuttle. Figuring out your transportation beforehand will make your trip less stressful and more enjoyable.
