I rarely travel by plane because I usually don't go for a far trip I also rarely travel by train because I prefer travel by my car but sometimes I use rail services.

I prefer to travel by car. I think It's more reliable than a plain. I travel by plain if I doesn't have an other opportunity to move. Last time I flew by plane in 2018.
