The big man, having witnessed the crash, showed his class and stayed with the driver until the Police arrived.
The Alachua County Sherrif added dashcam footage of their arrival on scene to their Facebook page, which shows a surprised officer being greeted with a fist bump from Shaq. Continue reading “It’s not all bad – here’s some good news happening in Florida”
We’re living in unprecedented times and despite air travel demand being at an all time low, we recognize that for those people that do need to fly, driving to the airport and airport parking is essential and a safer alternative than ride share or public transport to the airport right now.
In addition to the safety measures outlined below we are offering:
- A relaxed cancellation policy. We understand the increased likelihood of cancellations during this time so full refunds will be granted on cancellations at any time before booked check-in time.
Here’s what we are doing to keep customers and our staff safe:
- We are currently only offering self-park. Our shuttles will be readily available 24/7 for transportation to and from the airport. Employees will assist with luggage on request.
- We will only be transporting small or individual groups one at a time in our shuttle buses.
- Social distancing markers have been added in shuttles and facility lobby. Staff will be respecting social distancing guidelines and we expect customers to do the same.
- After each trip to the airport, we will sanitize seats and touchpoints in our shuttle with antimicrobial cleaner.
- Customers and staff are required to wear cloth face coverings/masks.
- Hand sanitizer is available on shuttles and in the lobby.
- We will continue to monitor and adapt our procedures in line with the latest guidance.
Thank you for your attention. The well-being of our customers and staff is our top priority. We welcome any feedback. Stay safe.

Sometimes, however, you need to check your bags. You may need more stuff than would fit in an overhead compartment. You may wish to transport items not permitted in a carry-on bag. You may have a long layover and not want to babysit a valise for several hours in some airport.
Whatever your reason for choosing to check your luggage, you always incur one risk: that it will not appear on the other end. Here are some tips on how to prevent that from happening, and what to do if it does. Continue reading “How Not to Lose Your Luggage – and What to Do if You Do”

Travel can be an incredibly exciting and enjoyable experience, but it can also provoke a lot of fear and anxiety for some people. Around one in every 20 people has a fear of flying, otherwise known as aviophobia. But why do some of us have this fear? And how can we get over it?
Why do we have a fear of flying?
Several different factors can cause a fear of flying. Some people feel claustrophobic in the enclosed space of an airplane. Others are scared of heights or of the potential of crashing or hijacking. Beyond that, the process of flying can be stressful and scary for a lot of people – what if you miss your flight? What if the airline loses your bag? Even though all of these outcomes are very unlikely, they can produce a lot of fear.
On top of that, flying is an unfamiliar experience. Some people fly very regularly, but most of us don’t, and you’re much more likely to have a fear of flying if you haven’t done it many times. It can take some time to get used to the sights, sounds, and feeling of being in an airplane. Until flying feels commonplace, it can make us very uncomfortable.
