Airport Limo...

Travelling for business can be stressful enough, you're away from home, travelling long distances and you just want to get from the airport to your hotel with minimal effort.

Well the best business decision you can make in this situation is to hire a limo for an airport transfer. There are a few things to remember when booking your limo which will ensure you really can relax.

For example, you may have been quoted the price for an airport transfer limousine, but did you ask how much extra it would be if the limo has to wait for you? What if your flight is late? Or, what if your flight is cancelled altogether and you don't make it to the other end at all? Do you get charged for bad flying weather?

Everyone knows that you get what you pay for and this is reason enough not to simply choose the cheapest limo hire company for your airport transfer. Service and quality come at a price, but would you really be without them?

Also ask if the limo you are hiring is smoking or non-smoking, if you are a smoker this is second nature, but if you're not, you don't want to be suffocated by stale cigarette smoke all the way to the hotel.

If you are paying that little bit extra for the service of a limo hire company, you want to be receiving the best service possible. Therefore, once you have elbowed your way off the plane, gotten giddy waiting for your luggage to come off the turnstile you don't want to have to search for your limo driver too. A quality chauffeur will be waiting with the clichéd piece of card with your name on it, waiting to take your luggage and offer you a drink.

Another thing to think about is how far you are travelling. Do you speak the language of the place you are going and do you speak it well. If not, make sure you ask for a multilingual chauffeur to get you to where you need to go.

While you may think hiring a limo for an airport transfer is an extravagance you'll have to explain to the accounts department, simply tell them it was only marginally more expensive than a taxi and it ensured you arrived at your meeting calm and collected.
