Airport rides are very important. I guess it is safe to say that most people are anxious about traveling most of the time. Sometimes they don’t want to arrive at the airport late, or because they do not want to leave any important thing behind, or probably just excited about the plans they have at the travel destination. All these come together with other factors to make airport rides quite different from the regular rides you take within the city.
I have found from interacting with thousands of Uber customers via our support email, that many people are anxious about pre-scheduling their airport rides. This is probably because it is one of those cases where planning is imperative and you cannot afford to have anything go wrong. In addition to the fact that there’s always so much to carry along, the timing is also so early sometimes or really late that you just cannot afford to have some friend or family drive you there at that time.
What Goes Wrong?
First, you have to worry so much about the possibility of getting a ride at that time, especially when it’s so early. In some of these cases, you end up opting for taxis and for-hire vehicles which are usually pricey and unreliable. Although, it becomes easier when you realize you can use an Uber, it’s still off-putting to know you have to add ordering a ride and driver’s early arrival to your list of last-minute worries.
How Kommen Can Help
The app Kommen, by letting you schedule your rides way ahead of time, can help take away all of your worries. With a function that lets you schedule a ride as far as 30 days out, you can sit back and concentrate on getting ready for a driver who will definitely be there at the exact set time. Since Kommen works on calling you ride a few minutes before your set time, you ride gets there at the exact time you have set. By taking one of your worries away, Kommen lets you focus on getting packed and the other things that matter, like spending the last few minutes before your journey with the ones you love.
