Etiquette Tips for Riding an Airport Minibus

We all know riding an airport minibus is the cheapest way out of the airport and into your hotel. In fact, there is ample room to put all your luggage. Just don’t leave your manners at home. The first thing to do would be to avoid putting your chewing gum somewhere in your seat. If that happens, it will make for a pretty bad smell and it won’t be good news for those who are going to sit after you. Another thing to remember would be to not be too comfortable. If you decide to sleep on three chairs, then there won’t be much space for other people. That won’t be good news for people who would want to get as much passengers in the airport minibus. Besides, the travel won’t take long so you must hold your yawns until you are finally in your hotel. It won’t be good news for everyone involved if you suddenly missed your hotel because you slept longer than you thought. In addition, you are in a place you are not that familiar with and you don’t know if you can ask directions from just about anybody you meet on the street. You won’t even know if they will give you the right directions as you may get even more lost than what you were before. Even if you have a map, you can’t really rely on that as you would first need to identify where you are from. If you are bringing a lot of things with you, it would be a big hassle and you don’t know if you are going to get where you are supposed to be. You may even hesitate to call the hotel because you’re in another country.

It would not be good for your image if you put your feet on top of the chair in front of you. That is not a good way to behave as other people may look angrily at you. Even if you did not that feel comfortable when you were sitting at the airplane for several hours, it is not an excuse to do that as it would be better to just sit back and wait until you finally arrive at your airport. Also, better not take off your shoes as you are in a closed space. The bad smell would immediately fill up the entire airport minibus. It won’t be long before everyone would be covering their noses. It would be a darn shame if someone would suddenly tap you on the shoulder and ask you to put your shoes back on. When you have worn it for quite a few hours, you know your feet are going to stink no matter how good-looking you are. Another thing to remember would be to make loud noises. If you are listening to music, then you can dance to it silently. It would not be good to just say the lyrics out loud as you may be disturbing other people who want to get some rest.
