Cross the border by car or scooter?

When it comes to deciding between a scooter and a car it’s essential to consider various aspects and carefully evaluate  pros and cons. 

In this blog, we will provide you with information so you can make informed choices that meet your unique circumstances.

Advantages and disadvantages of crossing the border by car

One of the main reasons people often choose to travel by car is the comfort it offers, especially if you are traveling with a large group or carrying a lot of luggage. However, when considering this option, it’s crucial to evaluate the cost implications.

Crossing the border by car can be more expensive than doing so by motorcycle, primarily due to the tolls you may need to pay for bridges or tunnels. Additionally, heavy traffic at border crossings can lead to delays, making it less suitable for those with work scheduled meetings.

We recommend opting for a car when you are going on vacation or when you need to transport a significant amount of luggage.

Now, let’s take a look at motorcycle.

Advantages and disadvantages of crossing the border by scooter:

Scooter travel offers the chance to enjoy the view, as there’s usually less traffic (due to quicker inspections). Furthermore, the cost-effectiveness of traveling by scooter is indeed better as well as fuel, which can also save money on travel expenses.

It’s an ideal choice for those who work, are looking for a lower cost option or simply don’t want to spend hours in traffic.
