Is it Easier to Travel by Train?

Posted by on 22/07/2011

With the annoyances of commercial airlines sometimes becoming unbearable, many people are considering alternative options. One option that often comes to mind is to travel by train. But this option will allow you to avoid some of the hassles of airline travel while encountering new ones.

The best thing going for travel by train is the consistency. There are unlikely to be last minute delays and cancellations. You’re also unlikely to encounter backed-up security lines that take hours out of your day. But even though everything moves right on schedule, it’s still a very slow schedule. Even with all the lines and delays, a trip that would take an entire afternoon on a commercial airline could take over an entire day by train.

The cost savings is usually not as much as you would think.

Your best bet is to pursue an option that offers the best of both worlds. Renting a private plane offers the speed of flight as well as the punctuality and luxury you would get when traveling by train. When renting a private plane, you schedule in advance and you decide the exact time you’d like the plane to depart, even trains can’t offer a departure time that is quite that precise. A private plane is often your best option.
