@oracle: Yes, I think you are being a little silly. If she offered without you asking (or hinting strongly) and you’d prefer to be driven rather than take a shuttle or something, then I’d take them up on the offer. There might be some slight expectation of reciprocity (if they’re travelling somewhere it might be nice for you to offer to drive them to the airport, but I doubt it would be a big deal if you couldn’t drive them in the future, given that you’ve helped them out quite a bit in the past.

I have no problem with it if they offered. Favors are great as long as they are reciprocated and you have been doing them favors.

If you always gave people rides before and they didn’t for you, then I can see that being a problem but as long as its even, go for it!

She offered, so no need to feel guilty. I would bring her back a cute souvenir though 🙂

I’d take it for sure.  We always get a ride to/from the airport from my parents.  Parking rate for like a week is 70-90.  I dont really mind making a trip to the airport for a few good friends esp if they always help me out too as long as its not like every other week.

Honestly, I think that people should always get rides to/from the airport. I think unless you have absolutely nobody to ask it’s completely silly to pay tons of money just to park your car or get a shuttle from home. You get a ride when you go somewhere and in turn you take your friend when they have a trip – it’s a part of life. Even when I lived somewhere where good public transportation went straight to the airport, my friends and I were constantly giving each other rides because it was quicker. Take the offer.

Yes, I agree with the PPs that you are being a little silly.  Yur friend offered without you asking (or hinting strongly) so I think it would be completely fine (and normal) for you to accept the offer.

I wouldn’t offer unless I meant it. So take the offer. I know at our airport here, its almost $15 a day to park, for 2 weeks thats over $200. I would get her a little something though. She is saving you a ton.

Go ahead and take it! Like people have mentioned, she offered without being pressured and you have done her favors in the past. I agree that bringing her back a little souvenier would be nice – and then you may not feel guilty and you may also feel less pressured like you owe her back. So go for it!

Take her up on the offer! I have taken lots of friends to the airport, and been taken there and to the port to go on a cruise as well.

@oracle: Oh yes take it!!! I never self-park at the airport cause of cost (and fear of whether they REALLY secure the park and fly lot lol), and usually ask someone in my family to bring me, but I’ve had a few friends offer, and it’s a favor that at some point or another you’ll have a chance to reciprocate.

i hate friends/family taking/meeting us at the airport – we have a regular driver that charges us $150 one way and thats what we use becuause its stress free and professional
