BETHESDA, Md., June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The news is full of stories about soaring airfares, checked bag fees and extended wait times in airport security lines. When you consider the time and cost of flying, it becomes clear that travel by car is the way to go, says the non-profit Car Care Council.
"Standing in line for hours in order to board an overcrowded plane after paying extra to check bags has made air travel a real headache," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "With no relief in sight, more and more travelers are realizing the benefits of driving to their destinations. Since a family of four can travel 1,000 miles round-trip by car for about the cost of one airline ticket, driving is clearly the sensible option."
