One of the best ways to get to an airport is by renting an airport limousine service. An airport limo service will ensure that you get to the airport on time in a comfortable and relaxing manner. However, before you go and hire the first airport limo service you come across, it’s important to understand that not all airport limo services are the same. The following are a few things that you should look for in an airport limousine service in order to choose the right one:
The total cost of the airport limo service
Different airport limo services charge different rates. Comparing rates is a good idea, but don’t just go with the cheapest service you find. Remember, you often get what you pay for. Not to mention that some limousine services will charge hidden costs. Be sure to ask the limousine company about any additional fees that you may be charged for in addition to the airport limo service rate. Specifically, ask if you’ll be required to pay additional gratuities for the driver, if you’re required to pay for any tolls on the way to the airport and if you have to pay for gas or administrative costs on top of the base rate.
The flexibility of your schedule
You may schedule a limo service a few days ahead of time. If your plans change or your flight is delayed, you’ll want the limo service to be able to have the flexibility to make changes. A professional airport limo service should be able to accommodate your schedule.
The quality of the driver
Some limo services practically hire drivers right off the street. You’ll want to make sure that the limo service you choose has experienced drivers. Ask about the training that their drivers receive and the types of background checks they perform. A good airport limousine service will perform extensive background checks to ensure that their customers will be in good hands. The last thing you want is someone with a history of poor driving, whether it be multiple auto accidents or criminal charges involving a vehicle, to drive you to the airport.
The quality of the service
A high quality airport limousine service will offer a number of different options, from the type of limousine (whether it be a sedan or a stretch limo) to the amenities provided within (from Wi-Fi to a TV and more). Ask about your different options, especially if you desire certain amenities.
The reputation of the airport limousine service
It’s not hard to look into a limo company’s background to find out what their reputation is. A good airport limo service will provide customer testimonials on their website that you can look through. You should also be able to find customer reviews on websites like Yelp. Keep in mind that almost every service is going to have one or two bad reviews – what matters is how many good reviews they have in contrast to their bad reviews. You may also want to check with the Better Business Bureau to see if there have been any complaints filed against the limo company and whether they were settled.
The experience of the airport limousine service
The more experience an airport limousine service has, the better the service will most likely be. Any trial and error experienced as a startup business will be ironed out at this point in time, helping ensure the best experience.
