Transportation

While many holidays include air travel, other transport options are important at destinations, even if these are only bicycles at a resort!
Some of the issues to consider with transport include:

Routes

Transport businesses supply maps showing routes that allow planning of travel between destinations.
Apps for transport often combine routing, timetables, ticketing and booking so that options can be explored quickly and bookings completed.
Some apps are live so that times can be checked, ticketing can be selected and paid for and then tickets displayed when required on the mobile device.

Ticketing

Like airlines, many other transport businesses now offer early purchase, discount or other special fare deals.
Understanding the options allows the best choices to be made for the type of travel preferred.
Some ticketing options can only be accessed before travel as they are not available to local travellers in a country.

Reservations

To ensure comfort while travelling it is often preferred to reserve seats.
Some routes do not provide reservations while others may have mandatory reservations.

Tourist Passes

In many cities there are a variety of tourist passes and day passes available for transport services.
Some tourist passes will include entry to some attractions, discounts and other value added items.
Websites provide detailed information that allows comparison of features to make the best choice for each traveller.
