Tis the holiday season and many people in New York will be traveling to be with loved ones.

If you are the one flying in and visiting, there is something you should never ask for.

That is for a ride to or from the airport.

Yes, we are all in the middle of a very stressful period of time and the last thing someone wants to add to their plate is making sure that they are at the airport to pick you up or drop you off.

First off, there are plenty of different options for you to get where you need to be from the airport. Taxis and Ubers are always available 24/7. Your poor brother-in-law shouldn't have to park and wait, or drive around in a loop waiting for you to grab your bags.

Plus there is added stress of delays and issues with your luggage. If you take an Uber or Taxi, you don't have to stress out someone else or waste their time waiting on you.

Same for when you are flying out. Your poor Uncle shouldn't have to get up at 4 am on Tuesday to drive you to the airport. Ubers and Taxis are available early or late and they will be more than happy to drop you off.

This Christmas think about the other person. The person who has to change up their entire schedule to make sure you get picked up or dropped off.

Time around the holiday season is limited and taking the airport pickup or drop-off is a great early Christmas present for someone in your family.
