Gaining Consumer Trust In Car Connectivity

In this day and age, where technology grows ever more complex, day by day, and not only our phones, but our cars have become computers, people want to know a few things. They want to know if this technology helps or hinders them. Does it protect us ,or pose an added threat if something does goes wrong. These and many other questions abound, but the answer to them, is never quite as clear as we hoped, more so melting into the proverbial gray area that is the middle ground between yes and no, good and bad, light and dark.

Individuals who presented in Brussels at the Connected Cars Europe 2017 conference believe unity is the answer. That the industry as a whole, all the networking, applications, services and manufacturing must be made to work together as a cohesive whole, chugging away like a well oiled machine with the sole purpose in mind of delivering unto the customer everything that has been asked of them, with all the assurances of safety and security possible. This is as good a plan as any, and if implemented well, without any interference from one company or the next, it could in all likelihood work to the desired effect.

A big part of this plan, is the creation of automated cars, and not just a car that can drive itself, but a truly automated vehicle, one that is capable of communication with all other cars on the road, alerting them in milliseconds of any accident that may occur. These are the aptly named “Talking Cars” of our future. Ranking in automation from 0 to 5, they stand at the pinnacle of 5, a summit we have not yet been able to climb to. Tesla is beginning manufacturing of cars in the 3 to 4 range, in that they are capable of driving without human assistance, but do not yet have the technology to communicate among themselves.

In the end though, what do automated cars mean for us? What do they mean for we the people who will be buying them, being driven by them, and putting our trust in them? Well the most glaring difference in my eyes is that accidents will become all but nonexistent. Short of mechanical failures machines don't make mistakes. They don’t go 70 on a street where the speed limit is 30, they don't run red lights, and they certainly don’t get drunk on a Friday night and decide to wing it and drive home anyway. So in theory, it will be safer, much safer.

What though, does this mean for the limousine service of the future? In all likelihood destinations and addresses will be preprogrammed, pickup times neatly scheduled, and the limousine itself will almost never be late. Party bus prices will drop, as they will no longer need a professional driver, only a “party facilitator” if you will, with the job of a DJ while simultaneously watching to make sure all the rules are followed within the vehicle itself in lieu of the driver. The limo service of tomorrow could very well consist of a fleet of “talking cars” or “talking limousines” and a small group of people in an office somewhere to answer the phone calls, schedule the pickups and make sure the whens and wheres are kept in order. It’s almost funny to think that 10 years from now when you search up “car services near me” you will mean exactly that, a car. No well dressed driver in a pressed suit come to get you, just you, and whoever else you’ve brought along, if anyone.

There are a few companies preparing for this future, so near yet feeling so far away. In Germany data is being analyzed to help create the next generation of technology that performs faster and at a higher level than ever before, but with speed there must also be usability.

A machine that has been made faster than any other of its kind, but that breaks down periodically is unacceptable. Of course perfection is impossible, but to be marketable it must be as close to perfect as possible in order to be marketable at all. It truly will be a challenge, making something never before seen, and having to get it right the first time or fail entirely.

There can be no half measures here, the automotive industry if it hopes to conquer this monumental feat cannot settle for the familiarity of the gray area. They must either go for the gold or give up entirely. 

Whatever reason you might want to hire a luxury car, it can be concluded that car services offer safety and convenience that cannot be matched with traditional transportation methods.

Experiencing luxury cars like  any of our cars in our fleet is an exciting experience in itself, and no option you choose would ever disappoint. If you would like some suggestions on which ride is best for your event feel free to call us at any time!

What Does Your Ride Say About You?

You may have heard how your clothes make you, how they manage your appearance, and signify your personality to the rest of the world. Well, the same goes for your ride.

Ever wonder why people spend ages pondering over the color, shape, and overall look of a ride they mean to buy or rent out? It is because your ride is an extension of you, a display of your taste. Every tiny detail—from the condition of the wheels, to manual or automated functionality of the windows—questions your own judgment regarding the choice of a car.

Lifestyle magazines go as far as predicting the personality of an individual according to the class of car they own. And why not? Just as people still judge a book by its cover, they judge a person by their ride, amongst other things.

Going for the occasion

In a social situation, your ride determines your status. When you wish to stand out amongst everyone else in your social circle, what you do?

You ensure your personal appearance and apparel are the best. You also ensure that your ride is the best.

Take a night out on the town for example. The eateries, the drinks, the dancing, everything is pretty much covered by anyone hosting the occasion. But not everyone focuses on the importance of a great ride.

Say you arrange for a comfortable limousine for your friends or family to take a trip in. Everyone manages to have a lot a fun, all without the discomfort of small cab space or waiting out for a ride to arrive.

In a business situation, your ride determines both your status and your trustworthiness. People tend to trust business people who are organized, ethical and reliable. As a professional, these are the qualities you need to induce in your overall appearance.

A potential client is more willing to associate with you if you have a perfect outlook, conveying that you prioritize perfection in everything else. You may have only one chance to make a positive impression at the very start, which means you have one opportunity to get it right the first time. You need to look like you mean business.

Purpose of a ride

The goal of a getting a great ride in not to show-off just how much you have to spend. That may not be the case; a great ride can simply be sleek car or limo which you’ve rented out through a professional service.

The goal is show how much effort you’ve put into arranging a transport for yourself and anyone else you are escorting.

The goal is also not exactly to look attractive. Your ride may quite attractive in a flashy manner, but if you intended for your ride to be professional, then it fails to make the right impression on a business partner or a client. Or, your ride may be stylish, but the colors are too neutral and there is not enough ‘flash’ for a ride that is supposed to transport people to a party. You may end up putting a damper on the celebrations.

Breaking down the events

When do you need to focus on the type and quality of your ride?

There are a number of events in your life, when you need to make the decision of how you and anyone else with you has to travel, and it all comes down to getting the right ride.

Let’s delve into a few examples of common occasions when you need a classy ride for a good impression.

 

  • Weddings:A traditional vintage car or perhaps a sleek, stretch limo is just what a bride and groom and their family needs to celebrate such a momentous occasion in comfort and style.
  • Business meetings: A classic three-passenger car or a limousinewith a professional interior can kick off a business deal in style. If you need to give your business a more suave touch, you can opt for an SUV that accommodates up to 8 passengers.
  • Corporate events / parties/ picnics/ tours:These occasions consist of similar celebratory aspects, and can be made memorable through a party bus! A classy party bus does not have to be crowded. You can opt for a professional rental service for a spacious party bus with a few entertainment add-ons.

Your ride reflects your conduct and appearance, whether it serves to transport you for personal travel, or serves to increase your prospects in a professional situation.

Owning a great ride is no longer a worry, not with excellent rental services on hand. At A1A Limousine, we understand the importance of quality and appearance of a ride, which is why we offer an exceptional fleet, consisting of vehicles that can be rented for a number of occasions.

How to Plan a Luxurious Vacation in Florida

Florida is one of the best places in the world for a summer vacation. The famous ‘Sunshine State’ has a lot to offer in terms of recreational activities.

Students flying down; solo vacations or last-minute getaways; families heading down via party buses to enjoy some time away from home; or a corporate party for deserving employees—everyone can avail the wonders of the beautiful Southern State.

Especially in summers, when the sun is out and beaches are more welcoming than ever, it is worth choosing Florida as a vacation destination.

However, no matter how amazing a place it is, and no matter how easily accessible the necessary amenities may be, it is always better to be well prepared when traveling anywhere.

To that end, following is a list of tips on planning for a Florida vacation.

4 Tips on Planning a Florida Vacation

Choose the Ideal Visiting Time

No matter the location, you have to choose the ideal time to visit, since the biggest vacation destinations around the country are distributed according to seasonal preference—Florida is no different.

If you are planning to rent a party bus and head down to Florida, the ideal time is summer; spring break (if you’re the partying sort); or after, if you’re looking for some time-out, away from the busy life.

If you are visiting Orlando, Florida, there is no “best time”. The temperatures, throughout the year are ideal, making it the perfect getaway spot, regardless of the time of year.

If you’re traveling during the summers, just make sure to keep yourself hydrated. Going out with the family? A snack bag is a must, with plenty of water (not just juices). It ensures that your kids don’t get cranky, are well-fed, and hydrated.  

Make sure you plan your vacation accordingly.  

Book Accommodation Beforehand

Vacation destinations such as Florida are notorious for the unavailability of reliable accommodations due to overcrowding during peak vacation season.

However, there are plenty of affordable and luxurious accommodations around the state if you know where to look and book beforehand. You will find budget-friendly accommodation with this tip.

Many families travelling down to Florida prefer going for vacation rentals instead of hotel rooms. The benefits are obvious: they offer more privacy, space and freedom.

However, for a 3-day vacation, rentals come at a heftier price tag. They’re ideal for longer vacations with a bigger group.

Moreover, availability is another concern. It is always a good idea to look for accommodation advice from a friend or a family member who has been to Florida recently.

Prepare a Detailed Itinerary

It’s easy to get carried away and spend in excess of what you originally planned. If you are planning a luxurious vacation, be sure to prepare a full itinerary in advance, in order to avoid unnecessary hassles.

There is a huge variety of attractions in Florida. From Disney World, Universal Studios, Kennedy Space Center and SeaWorld, it has an endless number of places you will want to visit.

Planning a detailed itinerary in advance will allow you to make the most of your days. Make sure you dedicate each day to each attraction and factor in the time you will take for travelling.

Arrange for Transportation To and Around the Destination

If you want to experience a luxurious vacation, a limo rental is the best choice for you.

A limo rental also has the advantage of being flexible and ideal for travels around a state. Traveling by a limousine is an experience in itself, which you are likely to remember for many years to come.

Limousine companies like A1A Limo offer a variety of options in terms of vehicles as well as amenities.

Consider this; every day, you wake up, there’s a luxurious, high-end limousine waiting for you. Comfortable leather seats, complete surround entertainment systems and mini bars are just some of the features you will get to enjoy when travelling in limos.

Now that you have all the prep tips in your arsenal, all you have to do is book a limousine or a party bus and prepare to have the time of your life!

A1A Limo offers the best limo rental in the country. We have a complete range of vehicle and facilities related options available for all manner of events and trips.

3 Ways to Make an Impression on Prom Night

As a high school student, you wait eagerly for prom night all throughout senior year.

Prom night marks the end of something beautiful—the new-found friendships, the small struggles and the perseverance that prevailed.

It also marks the beautiful beginning of a new journey.

While we all go our separate ways, you want to make this moment count.  

For some, prom night is the single most important social event of their high school career; to others, it is less meaningful.

Either way, it is fun, memorable and comes around only once in your life. From dealing with your parents—who unknowingly—and lovingly—embarrass you when your date comes to pick you, to going through all the struggle to secure that perfect date—the entire experience is nothing short of exciting.

Whether prom is just around the corner or you are planning to prepare for it in advance, one thing that can add to the experience is a luxury, first class limo! It is not just about the style or glamour; when you pool in with your friends to rent a limo, you ensure that you make the fun start off right and last longer into the night.

Wondering what you can do make the right impression? Here are three things that will help you leave a flawless, long lasting impression on your friends and batch mates:

Rent a Limo

Every student is left star struck, their eyes fixated on you and the vehicle you’re getting out of, your date being adored by all others.

Is this what your dream prom night looks like? Don’t worry; all your dreams can now be fulfilled by hiring a limo rental.

The impression that is created by coming to prom in a limo cannot be rivaled by anything else. From the look of admiration that you’re bound to get from your date to the gasps of amazement from all other students present, the reaction at prom night will testify the magnitude of the impression created.

Your vehicle is going to be the first thing that everyone sees, so make the first impression as glamorous as possible by hiring a limo rental for prom.

Apart from the impression, the limo will pick you up on time, provide you the assistance of a professional chauffeur, and allow you to extend the fun late into the night.

Dress to Impress

Your attire matters. With everyone turning up in traditional suits, it is up to you to create a differentiation for yourself. The differentiation can either be through the quality of the suit you wear, or the scent you use.

Whatever method you choose to stand out from the scores of other students present, make sure that you don’t overdo it.

Make this a rule of thumb—you need to dress classy, look timeless and tasteful.

For men, you want to look like someone who really took control of his style; not someone uncomfortable in their own skin, awkwardly shifting from one foot to the other, uncertain about the million dollar question: do I look good? Make sure you feel good. The rest will follow.  

For all you ladies out there—it is a good idea to bring along one friend who you trust, not an entourage. You need to come off as elegant. Complement your partner’s attire.

Furthermore, it is important to note that your hair should be well done. There must be an aura of perfection about the way you dress and look during the night.

Act Like a Gentleman / Lady

Once you’ve created the right impression—with the perfect ride and just the right outfit—you need to back it up by acting like a complete gentleman during prom night!

Hold the door for her, respect her, and try to have a good time! If you really want to leave a lasting impression, strive for it. Carry yourself well and make sure you help your partner stay in form throughout the event as well.

Ladies, make sure to stick with your crew. This night is about lasting friendships and fun. Be polite. Compliment freely. Spread positive vibes.

Finally…

Wondering where you can get that limo to leave the right impression? Allow us to help. At A1A Limo, we are a leading limo rental service that offers a wide variety of limousines and a number of packages.

These Travel Mistakes May Affect Your Job

Business travel when arranged by a reliable, experienced agent should be free from all sorts of incidents. However, every now and then, things don’t go according to plan.

It could be an unanticipated storm, birds who just wouldn’t clear the runway, or a car engine that breaks down.

While you can’t really control the flight path or a flock of birds, there are certain things that are still under your control.

You will be amazed at how things as small—as packing right, planning your layover so you can get some rest in between, preplanned hotel bookings and not having your credit cards blocked by banks—can affect your travel plans.

Most importantly, you need to avoid mistakes that can land you in trouble when it comes to your job. Corporate trips can be the right place to leave a lasting impression; or be that one shot where you fail miserably and risk your employment.

Here are a few travel mistakes you need to avoid at all costs:

Flying Anything Other Than Nonstop

When you are travelling for business, you simply can’t afford any sort of delays. However, when you take a one-stop flight instead of a direct one, you considerably increase your chances of facing airport congestion and delays.

Make it a rule of thumb—when flying for business you are always going to fly nonstop. This way, you are going to be more likely to reach your destination on time. Even if the tickets cost more, know that it is going to worth it.

Checking Bags

Avoid checking in your bags. Just don’t. Airlines may lose them and on top of everything else, you can go on a business trip with stuff that can be crammed into a carry on. Professionals who travel a lot religiously follow this rule—to save hassle and time, never check a bag.

Not Knowing the Distance between the Hotel and Event

You don’t want to spend hours commuting between business meeting and your hotel every day.

Often, bookings are made on the basis of the rates your organization has negotiated. You can dispute the bookings wherever you feel the distance between the event and the accommodation is illogical.

Ordering Expensive Food on Company Credit Card

The company credit card is not your license to have a six-course meal. Always be picky with what you eat and all your other expenses.

Choose mid-priced meals over expensive options. Spend recklessly and rack up a massive bill every time, and there goes your chance of securing that promotion. When you spend less, your manager will appreciate that you truly value the financial freedom given to you on your trip and you choose to utilize it wisely.

Tweeting Bad Things about The Hotel Where You Are Meeting

This is a downright no brainer. Even if you don’t like the hotel you are staying in, the hotel you like or your venue for the meeting, avoid tweeting about it.

People you are meeting at an event are probably following you across social media channels and the last thing you want is for them to come across a rude comment you made about the hotel.

Forgetting To Confirm Venue or Time Of Meeting

If you want to lose a client and possibly your employment, don’t confirm the time or venue of meeting.

At times, clients might completely forget that you are coming over and may need a polite reminder. Drop in a friendly reminder a day before you make it and you will avert a lot of last minute hassle.

Not Booking a Limo Service

When travelling to other cities or countries, your job is to leave the right impression on your clients. You want to make them feel valued and believe that you truly care about the event.

To start off on the right foot, make sure you book a sleek sedan limo that adds another layer of style to your attire.

Once you are done with the meeting, be polite enough to ask if any client needs a ride and let them have a feel of the luxury themselves!

If you are flying down to Florida for a business meeting, we can help you rent a limousine at surprisingly affordable rates. From the time you arrive at the airport to the time you leave, you can trust our professional chauffeurs and luxurious vehicles for timely, top class travel. Book your vehicle right now.

Wheel of Time: A Brief History of the Limousine

The idea of chauffeured automobiledates back to the 1700s. Before this, transportation with chauffeurs existed in the form of horse carriages. This form of transportation was created with the wealthy in mind.

But the limousine, as we know now, isn’t like the present-day limo we know! It took inspiration fromthe Sedan Chair—a mode of transport that relied on human strength. It all started in France, during the 1720s, when the upper class needed a new means of transport.

Unfortunately, we don’t have a photograph of the first limo because photographs weren’t a conceptuntil the 1800s!

Unless we successfully build a time machine, no one will know what it looks like, or who invented it. But there are pictures of the limos from the early 1900s!

Horse-Driven Limos

Before the introduction of modern-day limos, limousines were attached to horses. Just like horse carriages, the carriage would seat people in the back, while being carried by the majestic beasts.

But instead of 3 people, the carriages were longer, making it possible for at least 5 people to be seated. It was after this that the concept of a luxury vehicle started developing.

The Popularity of Limos

Despite being built in the 1700s, limos started taking off in 1930. They were used as a mode of transporting wealthy clients from hotels, to different places.

But what really kicked off their popularity was when they started being used to transport musicians and actors to their studios. They became so popular that you weren’t considered ‘part of the crowd’ if you hadn’t ridden a stretch limousine!

Soon afterwards, the six-door limos were invented. They were originally used for transporting the dead and their family to the funeral.

But that changed with the passage of time. When more and more celebrities started arriving to Hollywood in different types of limos, the more popular they became.

Now limos are synonymous with luxury and class. And that is rightly so!

They are the epitome of luxury and sophistication. With their intricate, unique design, and stylish look, they add a touch of glam to every event.

Modern-Day Limos

Modern-day limousines are still used by the rich and famous to commute. But they are also designed to cater to a much larger audience. With advent of technology, limos have evolved as well. Instead of holding 5–6 people, they can now hold a minimum of 10, and a maximum of 40!

Not only that, there are several types of limos available for hire. Some of these include:

  • The hummer limousine
  • The tank limousine
  • Jaccuzi limousine
  • Town car limousine
  • Stretch limousine
  • Limousine bus

All of these are different types of limousines and come with different features. They have different features, all unique to the type of make and model they are. Like the Jacuzzi Limo has a special Jacuzzi inside. It’s perfect for private parties, weekend getaways, and bachelor parties.

Modern-day limos also come equipped with GPR apps. The chauffeurs use GPRS to track the whereabouts of their client. This not only saves time, it helps in situations where it’s possible to get lost—especially in unfamiliar places!

Modern-day limos are ideal for hosting events, and travelling to events. Like the party bus limos are great for taking a long out-of-town trip. They’re great for hosting private weddings and graduation parties. This is because they’re large in size, accommodating up to more than 40 people at a time.

Travelling in Comfort, Luxury, and Style

A limousine adds a flair of sophistication to the ride. This is exactly why they’re booked on special occasions. They’re popular for weddings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and corporate events.

Since they’re equipped with world-class facilities, other means of transport cannot compete with them. They are a class of their own.  They help create a lasting impression on your guests, who will be left star-struck.

In addition, they’re great for business meetings. Taking clients on a business trip in a limo will leave a lasting impression on them.

š Other Benefits of a Modern-Day Limousine:

Well-trained drivers: Not everyone can drive a limo. Only the best drivers are chosen to navigate these luxury cars. The drivers are certified, well-trained individuals, who have vast experience behind them.

So individuals can be rest-assured when hiring a limo. The drivers back in 1700s did not have the means of technology to do this. Passengers had to wait long periods of time for their ride to arrive!

High qualityseating: The seat coverings of limousines are built using the finest of materials. This ensures maximum comfort. Furthermore, they help relax passengers, ensuring a stress-free ride.

In addition, passengers who rent a private limo can have the car customized according to their preference. This means they can customize the interior and exterior. Something like this was unimaginable during the 1700s!

The Wow Factor: Winning Your Boss Over

As an employee in a large firm, you already have a number of responsibilities. You have to manage your own work, maybe someone else’s work, and always stay on top of your game. It’s a constant battle.

It’s important to prove your worth. In a room full of people, what are you doing to make yourself stand out?

Making it to the top isn’t all about hard work, it is about working smart to achieve your goals.

Whether it is by delivering more in less time, or fine-tuning your attire according to your job, all of these steps are beneficial to your career growth and guarantee to leave a lasting impression on your manager.

If you are still contemplating where to start, here are a few tips that will help:

Promise Less and Deliver More

It is always better, in a corporate setting, to deliver more than you promise. It displays efficiency and dedication, both to the work and the position. When delegated a task, promise to deliver less than your actual capability, and strive to deliver more than you have promised.

In the modern work environment, managers are always looking for employees who are more reliable and can fulfill more duties. Putting in that extra day at work or staying behind once in a while to help your manager complete the project will definitely leave a positive impression.

Always be eager to do more work. Once you are done, make sure the work is recognized and mentioned when it is time for performance meetings. Keep up with the trend and you will soon land the position you have always been working for.

Ask any manager and they will tell you that only employees who are willing to go the extra mile achieve the positions they are looking for.

Present a Winning Outward Image

This can be done in a variety of ways. You could dress somewhat more fashionably, while maintaining professionalism.

Change your appearance to reflect the latest business styles. Dressing up right is perhaps one of the easiest ways to leave a lasting impression on your manager. It shows that you put in an effort to stand out at work by investing in your attire.

Go the Extra Mile

Winning means you need to take it a step further each time. Meeting a client? Make reservations in a 5-star restaurant. Picking a client from the airport? Call up a limo rental service and arrive in a limousine to add a corporate yet luxurious edge to your brand’s image. Organizing an event? Make it the talk of the town. Give it a professional look.

If you are looking for a limousine rental, look no further. At A1A Limo, we offer the best limo rental in the country. We have a complete range of vehicle and facilities available for all manner of events and trips. You can contact us by dialing 561-622-2222.

Arrive Early

Most employees think that staying back after work day after day makes them look competent. In fact, that will make it seem like you are bad at time management and are lagging behind.

But think of it this way; two employees are due in at 10 am. One arrives at 9:30 am the other arrives at 10:30 am. Which one appears to be more serious about work? Arriving early can also give you a productivity boost. It allows you to be one step ahead of everyone. You’re done with catching up with emails and news reports well before others have arrived.

Have a Can-Do Attitude

Nobody likes a slacker and it is true for almost every area of life. It is especially true in a corporate environment, where a lot depends on your ability to deliver on time, and have a positive attitude towards work.

Whether it is a group project or a business meeting, be sure to pitch in your ideas. Always put your hand forward to take on important responsibilities.

Employees who have a positive, at ready attitude are the ones who excel in the modern work environment. If you are habitual of taking the corner seat and not speaking out, you might not grab your manager’s attention.  

Having a positive attitude will round off your entire appeal, surrounding you with an aura of efficient workmanship and energy. This will be much appreciated by everyone around you, including your boss.

A Beginner’s Guide to Limo Rental Service

Let’s admit it; who doesn’t wish to travel around town in a stylish limousine? Whether you need a ride to the airport or an important corporate event, you can book limo rental service for every occasion and event.

Undoubtedly, the transport service offers tremendous convenience and comfort to frequent travelers, especially to those people who detest parking or public transportation issues. If you don’t want to go through the ordeal of finding public transport or a parking spot for your car in this heat, then hiring a limo service is your best bet.

But, that is not all. Read on to understand why so many people prefer a limo over standard public transport:

Personifies extravagance and sophistication

A limousine adds a touch of luxury and glamour to the ride. That is why people book a limo on special occasions, such as weddings, business events, bachelor / bachelorette party, and more.

No other form of transportation could match its flamboyance. Limos are generally equipped with world-class facilities, including but not limited to entertainment systems, a mini bar, audio and video player, and more.

If you’re looking to drive around in style, then limo should be your go-to transport mode. All eyes will be on you when you step out of a Mercedes or Rolls Royce. It is the best way to make a grand entrance as well as a lasting impression on guests.

Transport you can count on

Apart from the glitz and glamour, limo allows you to get to your destination in time. If you have a flight to catch, hiring a rental limousine service can be of immense help. A chauffeur will pick and drop you off at the airport.  

Generally, limo companies pick up their clients earlier than the designated arrival time to avoid traffic problems. Some service providers also track their clients’ flight status to ensure early arrivals.

In addition, limo drivers use state-of-the-art GPRS system to identify the best routes to reach different destinations in time. Hire a limo to reach your destination without getting lost in an unknown locality.

Comfortable, hassle-free travel experience

Driving on busy roads and highways can be a stressful experience. A limo service can eliminate all the road-related hassle and make your life much easier.

From cozy seats to a chauffeur, hiring a limo makes the ride comfortable. Sit back, relax and let your limo driver take to you to your destination.

A safe and secure ride

Safety is a primary concern for any kind of public transport. Limousine companies adopt a series of measures to ensure passenger safety.

Most limousine companies employ trained, experienced drivers, after conducting a complete background check.  Most of them belong to the same city and are therefore familiar with safe, efficient routes. They are also given comprehensive training on road safety, including wearing of seat belts.

It’s safe to say that limos drivers go the extra mile to make sure clients have a safe and secure experience.

Despite its numerous benefits, limousine companies do not provide the same level of service. In order to choose the right limo rental service, check out these simple tips:

Do your research

Choose a licensed, insured and certified limo company. Online reviews make a significant difference in your choice of company. Check out company online reviews and ratings to make sure you are making the right choice.

Assess your budget

As limo companies have different costs, obtain quotes from multiple companies and then choose the one that fits your budget.

However, limo companies typically charge hourly or fixed rates. In addition, rates are based on the type of fleet, location, travel time, number of passengers, and more.

Inspect fleet choice

Limo companies posses a range of well-maintained vehicles, such as Rolls Royce, Mercedes, Lincoln Stretch Limo, and more.

If you prefer a specific vehicle model then let them know beforehand.

Discuss travel details

What will be your pick and drop location? Will you be travelling alone or with additional passengers? What day and time do you need the limo for?

Before booking a limo, you need to know these details.

The Dos and Don’ts of Luxury Travel

The art of luxury travel is a fine one—learned through years of hopping into luxury business limos, honed with the convenience offered by luxury limo services. It doesn’t matter if you are merely travelling to the airport to pick up a senior executive of your company. Or that you require a few moments of peace, away from the business calls and meetings.

A long ride does help soothe frayed and hassled nerves—but are you receiving the complete luxury travel experience?

What Is Luxury Travel – How to Go About It

The very concept is a constantly evolving one; something different to everyone.

It’s a term that has become difficult to define, not because there’s a dearth in luxury travel opportunities. Luxury travel continues to define and mold itself, according to changes in society, culture, technology and the traveler.

Maybe luxury travel for you is more about the experience, rather than just appearance. Or maybe luxury travel is a case of enrichment, authenticity and exclusivity—something very few people seem to enjoy.

Now with A1A Limo, even an up-and-coming business can enjoy luxury travel in one of our sleek and beautiful limos. Make an impact where ever you go!

However, make sure to keep the following in mind for a wonderful luxury travel experience.

Luxury Travel – Dos to Follow

Make your luxury travel experience the best one yet with the help of these dos:

Opt For a Luxury Limo to and from the Airport

Want to jumpstart your luxury travel, right from the moment you leave home for the airport? Call airport limo services and book a limo to take you to the airport in style, convenience and luxurious comfort!

You can also book a limo to pick you from the airport, because the last thing you’d want is to wait around for a taxi after a long, exhausting flight.    

Utilize Your Flying Miles

Does business often take you out of the city or country? Do you have a lot of frequent flyer miles saved up? Use them for your luxury travel, whether for business or pleasure!

One of the biggest expenses is airfare, especially during peak seasons and international travel. Since flying in first or business class is the epitome of luxury travel, it makes sense to use your frequent flyer miles on it.

Plan your trip ahead and book first or business class award seats—you can easily upgrade your flying experience!

Hiring a Travel Agent

Let’s face it; planning your luxury vacation might be impossible if work keeps you busy most of the day.

This is why travel agents offer their services in the first place! There is no excuse not to use a good travel agent for your luxury trip, because hiring one will take off the essential planning off your shoulders.

A good travel agent makes all the difference between a less costing luxury vacation and an exorbitant priced one.

These professionals have connections and a good working relationship with hotels, tour operators, transportation services, etc. This helps in finding the best deals that includes everything you want to do on your luxury travel.

In addition, your travel agent will keep you informed about cancelled flights, room bookings, current weather conditions, late checkout details and other extras.  

Luxury Travel – Don’ts to Keep in Mind

These don’ts or mistakes of luxury travel will ensure you have a seamless and enjoyable travel experience, wherever you visit!

Plan an Overambitious Itinerary

Are you planning to visit 7 places within the country in a week? If you like surprises, prepare for an unpleasant one: visiting a lot of places in a short amount of time is just not possible—unless you own a private jet or cruise ship—or transportation device…

By doing this, you won’t leave any time to relax and enjoy in the sights. Globe-trotting is one thing but rushing off to a place after staying for only a few hours will leave you exhausted, with an empty feeling. This doesn’t make for a luxury travel experience.

What you can do is plan the trip in such a manner that leaves ample time for must-see sights, yet set aside additional unscheduled time.     

Not Informing Your Credit Card Company

You will of course shop and spend money on food while traveling. Few travelers take loose cash along on trips especially businessmen who rely solely on credit cards. Your credit card can be red flagged by the company unless you make routine purchase internationally with your credit card.

You can be denied credit card usage if purchases are outside your spending pattern. Make sure to let your credit card company know of your impending travel plans, to ensure a smooth travel experience.
