Planning a trip takes time and a great deal of research. Generally before a trip, you must quickly become familiar with the transportation options that are available. For example, in May I will be going to Peru ... the question is how do I get to Macchu Pichu? After completing a considerable amount of research, I eventually discovered what I think is the best option. Once the trip is completed, I will certainly know for sure!
One site that is a great benefit is Rome2Rio ( https://www.rome2rio.com/ ) It contains information on planes, buses, trains etc It is a very effective tool to use ... just type in where you are leaving from and where you are going.
