If you’re planning to fly into the Tampa airport before driving to Sarasota, you need to plan on driving 61 miles. This stretch takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. It would be best to hire a limousine service from Tampa airport in order to save time and money. Consider the following costs that you’ll need to spend when driving your own car or taking a rental vehicle.


If you’re flying out from the Tampa airport only to return at a later time, you might consider driving your own car and parking it at the airport. However, you could end up paying a significant amount each day to park. If you’re gone for a week, you’re going to end up paying a lot just to leave your car parked there.

Car Value

And while you’re car is parked at the airport, who knows what’s happening to it? You’d like to think that your car will be just fine when you return, but you never know what kind of dings it will get from other cars in the parking lot. You never know if someone will try to break into it while you’re gone. It’s best to leave the car at home, safely parked in your garage.



If you’re from Sarasota, you’re going to have to cover the price of gas to travel the roundtrip of about 120 miles. On the other hand, people who don’t know the area may end up paying even more money as they wind around the roads to determine where they need to go, adding even more miles to their odometer in the process. It would be better to hire a professional who knows exactly where they’re going and the best routes to take to get there.

Opportunity Costs

Traveling for over an hour means that you’re going to spend a lot of time behind the wheel. You won’t be able to relax along the way or be able to get some work done. You shouldn’t spend time talking on the phone so you can focus on the road. The hour of driving could be time better spent doing other things. When you hire a professional, you can sit back and relax while working or completing other important tasks.With the amount of time and money that you can save by hiring a TPA airport limo, it’s well worth the cost of hiring these services for the trip.
