I am flying into Atlanta in the afternoon the day before Christmas. My final destination is a 2-hour ride from Atlanta, in an area that is not connected to Atlanta through public transport or regular shuttle services (specifically, around Clemson). Unfortunately no-one can pick me up at the airport.
The cheapest and most comfortable option I have found so far would be to call an Uber/Lyft once I am out of the terminal.
(I will be tired from the flight and I would rather not drive. Besides, with the Christmas week-end, I would have to book a car for 4 full days, which, together with the drop-off being different from where I am getting the car, makes it more expensive than a 2-hour Uber/Lyft ride. I am also reluctant to book a Uber/Lyft "planned trip" in advance as my flight could be delayed.)
My question is:
- How likely am I to find a Uber/Lyft driver willing to take me on such a 2-hour drive around that time?
- Does anyone have experience with such long-distance Uber/Lyft drives, especially around Atlanta?
- Is finding a driver for such long-distance trips a no-brainer or a gamble?
