Do you hire executive limo services regularly? Then you will know how challenging the entire process of booking your limousine and ensuring good limo service is. For someone that has no experience hiring a limo for airport transfers or for other needs, it could be a very stressful process. It is not like you could pick up your phone and book your limo, like you do with the other car rentals, when it comes to hiring a limo the dynamics take a different turn.
Firstly, limo service is a premium service and not everyone books a limo for their airport transfer needs. Only people that believe in class, luxury and people who have to ensure that they are projecting a powerful image in society will opt for a limo for their transportation needs. Affordability thereby becomes a question. The cost factor in booking your limousine is going to be therefore the first challenge. The limo rental industry is a totally unregulated industry. Each service provider is free to set their own prices. You will therefore see a huge variation in the limo rental rates. For the same distance, route and vehicle type you will get ten different quotes or as many different quotes as there are companies. How do you know which company is going to offer you the best deal? Lowest quote is not always the best deal. A few companies quote low but have their quote offset through optional add-ons. Unless you are careful, you will end up with a high final bill. Before finalizing your quote you need to carefully review what is included and what is not included. Find a company that offers you a straight forward and transparent quote.
The second challenge is your personal safety. The airport limo service agency should have chauffeurs who are not only licensed to drive chauffeur driven vehicles but they should also be fully screened chauffeurs. Unless an agency confirms that they have taken care of the background tests of their chauffeurs and that they have no criminal records, it is best not to go with those agencies. Your personal safety is always the top priority. You need to double check the reputation of the agency. If you are selecting your airport limos in the last moment then you may not have the time to screen your service provider and the credibility of the chauffeurs.
Reliability is the third important challenge. Does the limo agency always send the limo that you booked and not swap it for some other vehicle in the last moment? Do they send the vehicles on time? Yes, all these factors contribute to the reliability of the services. You need to look for companies that have positive reputation in industry. It is best to go with a well-established company than a new provider in the industry who has no credible history that you could cross check or verify.
By knowing the above challenges in advance, you will be able to deal with them effectively and find a good limousine service for yourself.
