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.
