LONG BEACH, CA—Salk International’s Airport Transit Guide is helping travelers save even more time, stress and money this holiday season by offering the guide at 50% off. The guide is available on iTunes for $4.99 from November 11 through January 1, instead of the regular price of $9.99.
The guide can also be sent as a gift through the iTunes “gift this app” option, and makes a great gift for any traveler who has an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.
Salk International’s Airport Transit Guide, often referred to as “the bible for the air traveler,” is now digitally published as a standalone app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The app replaced the 28-year old print edition to provide easier access and updates to travelers, and includes more than 10,000 changes since the last print edition, as well as free updates.
The app includes:
- Taxi rates to the city and outlying points, plus tipping advice
- Prices, Schedules and Routes for airport coaches, limousines, shuttles, trains, subways and buses
- Website and telephone listing of airports, taxi, and shuttle-limousine services
- Airport parking rates
- Inter-airport connections, cruise-port transfers, helicopter service and much more!
The guide functions as an aid to the traveler who asks, “How do I get from the airport to the city?” The guide has long been one of the most highly regarded travel guides since its debut in 1982 and now covers nearly 500 airports around the world and thousands of transit options, including fares and schedules.
“Most travelers who have used the guide have told me that it paid for itself on its very first use,” said Ron Salk, editor and publisher of Salk International’s Airport Transit Guide. “It is designed to give choices that will save the traveler time and money, while reducing stress upon arrival.”
As an app, the guide provides easily searchable information without the need for cell phone service or an Internet connection, which is not always reliable in unfamiliar locations. The new app, when used with a wireless connection, provides one-touch phone dialing and website access to airports and transportation companies all over the world.
“The guide completes the world traveler’s digital arsenal of flight, hotel, and restaurant apps, and provides a wealth of information with a few simple touches.” Salk said. “We’re hoping that this holiday season, we can help traveler find easy, quick and affordable options to get to their destination.”
