Weighing Your Transportation Options and the Value of Car Service

By: Robert Thomson

If you are traveling and especially flying into a particular airport, you know that you have to have transportation from that airport to your chosen destination. At this point, you only have a handful of options; a shuttle, taxi, rental, or car service.

When deciding which method of transport to use, you need to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each.

If you choose a shuttle, you typically have to wait for its arrival time, which is usually scheduled by the hour and half hour, rather than your particular arrival. This could mean additional time added to your travel schedule. With a shuttle, there is also the sharing of your ride with multiple people, having to squeeze into your seat, and a limited amount of space for your luggage. Many shuttles only drop off at particular destinations rather than giving you door-to-door service, which also means you will have to organize another pick-up and drop off. Last, depending on the shuttle, you also may have to sit through a handful of stops, which again adds to your total travel time and makes your trip all the longer.

There is also the option of taking a taxi. Many taxis are waiting near airports so that calling upon one is usually quick. Taxis aren't particularly classy or comfortable and more than not, quite expensive.

What about a rental car? Having a rental car gives you control over your own departure and getting about your destination, but then you would have to know how to get around town, know what streets are heavy with traffic, where the back streets are, where there is parking and more. Rental cars also are at times off site from airports so this means having to catch some kind of shuttle to your rental car, checking your car out, loading it and again, more travel time added to your trip.

The last option is using car service. Few people know about the value of car service and think it is only for those who are wealthy. In reality, car service is more times than not, less expensive than using a taxi. A fully uniformed chauffeur will meet you at the arrivals gate and assist you to the waiting limousines or executive car for your onward journey. From the moment you arrive, you will receive top-notch service from your chauffeurs who will greet you with a sign at baggage claim or your arrival gate. Your chauffeur will then assist you with your luggage and transport you to your desired destination.

Are you a traveling businessperson? This is another benefit of using car service. Your vehicle can serve as your mobile office. Your driver will deliver you to your destination while you catch up on phone calls or paperwork.

The benefit of car service doesn't stop at the airport - that is, you don't have to be at the airport or traveling to enjoy what a car service agency has to offer. Are you getting married? Why worry about who will drive, the way to the church, getting around traffic, and whose car will you use that fits everybody - when you can hire a driver and quality and classy car to pick you and your wedding party up? Besides, your wedding day is a special day, why settle for just any type of transportation when there could be a limousine at your disposal? Having a driver pick you up will lesson the stress you may already be feeling and pamper you.

Is your child attending prom or graduation from high school, college or trade school? For proms, your child and their friends can be safely escorted to and from their prom destination. Many limousines are fully loaded with fiber optics, neon lights, strobe lights, laser lights, CD/DVD players, and flat screen TV's. As prom night is one of the most dangerous nights for teenage drivers, this will ensure they have a safe and classy escort that will additionally be quite memorable.

As for graduations, typically many family members arrive in town and would like to travel together. Why not use a car service for this as well?

Want to tour the city in style with a driver who knows their way around? Whether you are traveling in a new city or the city you live in, using car service is a wonderful way to see the sites. Maybe you are attending a concert of special event with friends; again, what could be more fun than pitching in together and hiring a driver with a classy car to take you to your destination? You won't have to worry about parking and you can have a designated driver make sure you get home safely.

This goes for birthday parties, bachelor or bachelorette parties - where it is possible there might be some drinking. Having car service will ensure your safety, fun and legality.

So whether you are traveling or planning a special event, car service's value is above and beyond other options.
