Have you ever considered taking a limo anywhere? I not only have considered it, I highly recommend it. This is why I’m writing this article today.
Just a little while ago, I had the pleasure of contracting the services of one, and let me tell you, it’s a whole other level of comfort and relaxation.
The first thing I want to point out is: 60 minutes of wait time are included in the price! This is huge if you really think about it. No more looking at the clock and stressing over how much it’s going to cost you. Obviously limos are more expensive than taxis, but in some cases that can flip on you, especially if the taxi is metered and you are in traffic, or in the case of a pickup, if the flight is delayed.
Actually, the flight being delayed, as any halfway experienced traveller knows, is only one of many possible airport-related delays that can mess up your schedule. And messed-up schedules and not only incur more fees from taxis waiting for you, they may in some cases further delay or even cause you to lose your pickup. Sixty minutes is a nice window, because almost any kind of delays are shorter than that, so you have nothing to worry about.
Now, the benefits of a limo: You can lie down and rest in a limo. There will never be a problem with your luggage fitting in a limo. If you’re travelling with a group or with the whole family, you can all be seated facing each other and have normal conversations with each other without neck strain or having to shout. The ride in a limo is of course much smoother. There are snacks and drinks on board.
And of course, it may not be 100% politically correct to say so, but limo drivers tend to be more carefully vetted than taxi drivers. In some localities on this earth, the difference can be quite severe. And this shows in the way the drive and also in the way they treat you.
Travelling is stressful enough. You can definitely take one of the dimensions of stress out of the picture by using a limo service to and from the airport (they are in dozens of cities worldwide and constantly growing). Consider doing that the next time you have to run the gauntlet of air travel.
