My wife and I bought a vacation package and we thought that it included everything. We should have double-checked that it included airport transfer to our hotel as well. Hindsight is 20/20, they say.
我和妻子购买了一个旅游套餐，我们以为这套餐包含所有行程安排 。我们应该再三核对是否也包含机场到酒店转乘费用 。他们说，现在说什么都晚了 。
My wife wanted to take a taxi, but I nixed that idea. It would cost an arm and a leg. I wanted a cheaper option so we went to ask about it at the airport information desk.
我妻子想叫辆出租车，但我拒绝了 。这会花一大笔钱 。我想选择一个更便宜的出行方式，所以我们去机场问讯处咨询 。
Don: Hello, my wife and I need to get to our hotel downtown. What are our options?
Clerk: Well, you could take a taxi.
Don: We’re hoping to find a cheaper option.
Clerk: Okay, in that case, a limo service would be out, too. There are private shuttle services, but since you’re so far from downtown, you’ll be making a lot of stops and it will take a long time to get there. You could also take public transportation – the bus or the subway – but that’ll take even longer. Doesn’t your hotel have a courtesy shuttle?
职员：好吧，那样的话，豪华轿车服务也就不考虑了 。酒店有私人班车服务，但是由于你离市中心太远，中间要停很多站，到酒店要花很长的时间 。你也可以搭乘公共交通工具——公交车或地铁——但花费的时间会更长 。你所在的酒店没有接送客人的班车吗?
Don: I never thought of that.
Clerk: Many downtown hotels do. Call your hotel and they’ll be able to tell you. They’ll probably have the best suggestion on how to get there, too, if they don’t have their own shuttle. If you decide on a private shuttle service or to take public transportation, come back and I’ll give you more information.
职员：市中心的许多酒店都有班车 。联系一下你的酒店，他们会告诉你的 。如果对方没有班车，他们可能也会给你最佳的出行建议 。如果你决定乘坐私人班车或公共交通工具，我会给你提供更多的信息 。
Don: Thanks a lot. I’ll give the hotel a call right now.
Lucky for us, the hotel had a courtesy shuttle and it was on its way. Good thing, too, since I didn’t relish spending any more time at the airport after a long red-eye!
