    to drive

    I'll drive my parents home/to_the_airport.
    Can you drive me to the airport tomorrow, please?

    Is it good English, please? Is "drive" preferable to "take/bring"?

    Re: to drive

    In this instance, drive/take/bring are all acceptable and will be clearly understood by native speakers. You will be responsible for getting your parents home or to the airport.

    "Drive' is preferable if you will be the driver of the vehicle that is going 'home' or 'to the airport'. It is very specific.

    You don't need to drive the vehicle if you 'take' or 'bring' your parents to the airport by taxi, bus, or rented rickshaw!
