Getting a rideshare at an airport is like a really aggravating scavenger hunt. Some airports have great signage and point you to a convenient area right outside baggage claim. Some have you taking shuttle buses to a parking lot that might be in another state. Some don’t even bother with signage and tell you to figure it out yourself, genius. This problem gets even tougher in other countries where signs are in another language, and it’ll cost you $5 a minute to call your driver.
In the United States, it seems to be our busiest airports that are also the most difficult to catch a rideshare. Overseas, many airports don’t even allow rideshares, and the ones that do never seem to make it easy for you. We talked to some seasoned travelers and got the inside scoop on the hardest airports to catch an Uber or Lyft, and how to do it as painlessly as possible.
