Maybe I’m just exaggerating, but it seems like almost everyone I know has been traveling the world recently. I’ve seen pictures of friends visiting France, Spain, Ireland, Thailand, New Zealand, Brazil, and several states in the U.S., just to name a few. I’m thinking the fact that it’s summertime is probably the reason, but maybe I just know a lot of people with an intense wanderlust. Either way, I’m extremely jealous. I’ve been dying to get away recently.
One of the most important aspects of traveling is planning. And the first thing that comes to mind – at least for me – is my travel budget, the bulk of which usually goes into the actual journey there. If you’re traveling overseas, I think it’s safe to say you’ll be flying there. (Those of you on cruises don’t count!) And unless you know someone from your destination who can pick you up at the airport, chances are you’ll be taking a taxi to your next stop.
Thanks to GO Rentals, a rental car company in New Zealand, now you can compare the price of an airport taxi from the busiest cities in the country! Christchurch Airport in New Zealand is currently the most expensive taxi ride in the world at $4.50 a kilometer. In case you don’t see the city you’re visiting soon on the list, GO Rental has also provided a comparison of taxi rates by country.
So if the cost of renting a taxi worries you, maybe you should consider renting a car instead. Perhaps it will be the more budget friendly option for your travel plans in the long run.
