Use a Limo Company for Airport Transportation

No matter where you live, you know that finding reliable and trustworthy airport transportation services to and from the airport can be an overwhelming experience. Ronnie at San Jose Limousine says that many people generally turn to cab and shuttle services. Most are not aware of airport services provided by limo companies. There is certainly an assumption that limo companies provide limos for weddings, proms and extravagant occasions. Little do they know that limo companies provide multiple airport and corporate level services every single day and most of their clientele are airport or corporate clients. Here are a few pieces of advice on how to find the right limo company for airport service.

Reviews

Any company can call themselves the best limo company in the area. But the most reliable feedback that you are going to get about a company’s services will come from the customers who have used it themselves. So I would go to sites like Yelp or Google and start weeding out the companies with terrible ratings. Make a list of the top 5 companies with the best reviews and ratings.

Price Shop

Once you have your list of 5 companies, call each company and find out the cost for an airport transfer. Be specific about where the pick up/drop off is and which airport. You will be given a quote. Find out what is included in this cost. Some companies will quote a base price which does not include fees, mileage and driver’s gratuity. Some will quote everything included except driver’s gratuity. A few companies will state that it includes everything, including the gratuity. Since you can’t compare apples to oranges, you will simply have to do the math and decide which comes to the best and most acceptable total price.

Additional Things to Consider

There are a few other questions you may want to ask. If you need the driver to meet you inside the airport (aka: “meet and greet”), find out if there is additional cost or if it is included in the total cost. Prices will depend on a few factors: 1) Time of pick up– very early morning pick ups are generally more expensive. 2) Time of day– rush hour on the weekdays may be more expensive as well.    3) Type of vehicle– sedans are the cheapest, followed by the 7-passenger SUVs, and vans.

Benefits of Limo Company

There are many benefits that come with hiring airport transportation with a limo company. First, you will notice professionalism and class with your driver dressed in a suit. Service is door to door and you will notice great etiquette with opening of door to assistance with luggage.

San Francisco Limo Review

Hey everyone, I just wanted to write up a review for San Francisco Limo Company, which I had the pleasure of using two weekends ago.  We rented out a Hummer limo for my buddy’s 25th birthday party with 15 of us and man this limo was the bomb.  It was all decked out.  Came with two flat screen tv’s, all leather seating throughout, fiber optic lighting on the the floor and ceilings, iPod hookup for music and an awesome stereo system.  Not to mention, complementary beverages on ice at the bar.

Service was excellent.  We were picked up right on time at 6pm at Rob’s place in San Mateo.  The driver John was really cool, cracking jokes and made sure we all had a good time.  At the same time, very professional and made sure we were comfortable and got to dinner on time, even though there was a bit of traffic going into the City.  We got dropped off outside Prospect by 6:50pm for our 7pm reservation.  Smooth as butter.

By the way, the food at Prospect is amazing!  Ambiance was nice.  If you’ve never been there, you’ve got to check it out!  It’s a little pricey but if you like fine dining it’s the place to go.  So anyway, we texted Jeff to let him know we’d be out by 9pm and there he was waiting for us out front.  The coordination with our limo driver was spot on.  We got dropped off at Lava Lounge for a few drinks.  Since it was our buddy’s birthday we had to buy him a couple rounds of shots.  Everybody was having a great time.  We were all a bit buzzed, not wasted.  And John was pretty cool and knew we were out to have a good time.

So 10:30pm rolls around and John pulls the limo up, even comes out to make sure we’re all doing okay.  We head on over to Ruby Skye for more drinks and dancing.  Anyway, since this review is about San Francisco Limo, I’m not going to go into details about the club.  I really wanted to give this company the credit it deserves.  Honestly, by the time we got out of Ruby Skye at 1am, we were pretty loud and obnoxious, but John was respectful and got us back home safe;y.  Luckily, we didn’t do anything too crazy.

The booking process was super easy too.  I had called a few places first and nobody was answering their phones!  I finally called San Francisco Limo and Rhonda answered and was so nice and helpful.  She went through everything in detail with us, gave us a quote which was a pretty good deal, and the process was a breeze.  Everything went smooth from the moment we spoke to somebody and booked our limo to the moment we got dropped off at home, there was a hiccup or any inconvenience at all.  And we made sure John got a good tip for the good service.  I’ve never ridden in a limo before, but this is, by far, one of the ones I will remember.

I heard that they do a lot of other services like wine tours to Napa, which I might look into next time.  Take my girlfriend out there for our anniversary and do a little bit of wine tasting and dinner.  Anyway, thank you San Francisco Limo for helping us make this birthday one of the best ever.  If any of you are looking for a limo company with great service and good prices, you have to call this company up.  I’m not getting paid to write this review or plug their business, just telling you the honest truth.  I’ve heard some horror stories from people and their limo experiences so I really wanted to jump on this and share ours.  Anyway, this is their website sanfrancisco-limo.com if you want to check them out
