She continues:

“$40 for the Uber to pick me up here and drive me a mile to my house, or I can walk to the Hilton Garden Inn and have the Uber drop me off at my house for $7.”

The video inspired comments with more cost-saving tips for airport trips.

Others commented that they can’t walk to their local airports, so they have to opt for a more expensive Uber ride.
