Last week we told Joe Brancatelli that we were posting a holiday sale for the Airport Transit Guide. Joe runs the exclusive travel website Joe Sent Me, which caters to business and professional travelers and is widely read in the travel industry. He had this to say:
The Airport Transit Guide was the bible for travelers who prefer to use mass transit to commute to and from airports around the world. Well, it was the bible until creator Ron Salk discontinued the printed guide and morphed his data on hundreds of airport transit options into an iPhone app. Now the app is the virtual bible for travelers who use mass transit for airport travel. And between November 11 and January 1, the $9.99 regular price of the app is slashed by 50 percent. If you’re an iPhone user and a business traveler, the $4.99 you’ll spend for the Airport Transit Guide is probably the best investment you can make.
We agree, and hope that the Airport Transit Guide helps you in your travels. As many reviewers and customers have noted, the app pays for itself in the first use. If you have an iPhone, iPod or iPad, give it a try.
David Rowell recently posted a great review of the Airport Transit Guide on his highly respected blog, The Travel Insider. We are reposting it here:
Still talking about travel innovations, electronic books, and bargains, I’m delighted to be able to tell you about a wonderful bargain being offered for a short time by a good friend of The Travel Insider, Ron Salk.
Ron publishes a gem of a little book called the Airport Transit Guide. It gives you wonderfully useful information on how to travel between major airports around the world and the cities they serve. I rely on it whenever I’m going somewhere new, and often refer back to it when going somewhere familiar, too. Ron’s been doing this for almost 30 years now and has his book and the information inside it down to a fine art (or should that be science?).
I reviewed the print version back in 2005, and last December he enhanced it to digital format, available for any type of iOS device (iPhone, iPod, iPad). Since then he’s updated what he is referring to as his 25th Edition several times (updates are easier for electronic reference guides than for print ones) and now he is offering the guide at half price from today through the end of the year. A mere $4.99.
I’ve regularly saved much more than $5 from his advice – even much more than $50; – particularly in learning how to take trains between cities and airports so this has to be one of the great travel bargains of the year. If you have an iOS device, or know a friend who does, this would be a great present to give to yourself or to them.
Here’s a link to my review of the electronic version of Ron Salk’s Airport Transit Guide to tell you more about it, and there’s a link from there to the iTunes store if you choose to buy it. Recommended.
We thank David for his review and highly encourage you to check out the Airport Transit Guide for yourself.
