A-List celebrities have the pick of the litter when they travel anywhere in the world. With millions of dollars made in different forms of entertainment, from sports to movies to music, they can afford any mode of transportation they want, and some of them have no problem going all out in their cars, boats and planes. It’s kind of the mark of a true A-List celebrity, getting an Escalade or private plane, or a collection of cars for that matter. With millions in the bank, why not spend some money on a few toys to drive around in.
For other A-Listers, however, the common modes of transportation are perfectly fine for them, and you could be sitting beside them on the subway or watching them put their luggage in the overhead compartment of the airplane, ready to take-off. Some celebrities like to stick to their roots and don’t go flashy or bling in their car choices, while others, it’s a point to save money and stick to their roots. In this list, you’ll see plenty of celebrities who stuck to the common footpaths and travelled more like B-listers, and the ones that let their wallets fly open and went all out in their travels.
