Plan Ahead For 2019 Corporate Travel

With 2019 just around the corner, it is very important to have your business plan in place for the new year. That includes planning ahead for your corporate travel arrangements. Planning ahead now allows you the freedom to focus on other important business matters as they come up. In addition, it saves a lot of money for you or your company.

The earlier you book your reservations for airfare, hotels, and luxury ground transportation the better. In addition to early bird deals, there are rewards programs that can save you even more money.

 

 

Headed For Business Travel? 4 Reasons To Hire Limo Service Transportation

 

 

Booking your limo transportation early also ensures that you are able to reserve your first choice of limousine cars. That is, you’ll have a better chance of securing a vehicle to accommodate the number of passengers that need to travel together. For instance, it would be more cost effective to choose luxury sedans, like Town Cars, for one or two passengers. If you wait until the last minute, you may be left paying more for an oversized vehicle without enough travelers to fill its seats.

 

 

Flying Into The New Year For Corporate Travel

Arriving at the airport after a long flight can be very exhausting. Without booking a ride ahead of time, you have to find your way out of the airport, search for an Uber or local car service, and hope that a reliable driver arrives shortly. Another equally traumatizing option is trying to book a rental car at the airport.

Taxis are expensive and often not very well kept. Moreover, even the driver may not be well groomed or well trained. If you have more than a few passengers, you may have to hire multiple cabs heading to the same destination. This can more than double your cab fare, which severely cuts into your company’s corporate travel budget.

 

 

The Pros & Cons: Private Aviation vs Public Airport

 

 

Uber and Lyft drivers do not undergo the same training as a professional chauffeur. Since they also driver their own vehicles, you never really know what shape the car will be in before it arrives.

  • Ridesharing services are often unreliable in regards to arrival time or choosing the best driving routes.

Time is always critical for travelers, whether you are catching a departing flight or simply exhausted after a long day of traveling and anxious to reach your destination.  When you are attending multiple meetings or business events, it can be very time consuming to reserve an Uber or Lyft for each venue.

Rental cars are expensive and inconvenient. Driving yourselves requires someone in the group to volunteer to take the wheel. This person takes on the task of dealing with all of the airport traffic, driving in an unfamiliar area, as well as finding adequate parking when you finally reach your destination.

  • The more travelers there are in your party, the more likely you are to rent more than one vehicle.

 

 

Avoid Travel Hassles With Limo Transportation

Reserving an airport car service, such as an airport shuttle from A1A Limo, can make all of the difference. One of our professional chauffeurs will greet you and your travel companions, assist with your luggage, and alleviate the need to deal with rental cars, taxicabs, phone-app drivers, and all of that airport traffic.

Our chauffeurs are cognizant of the high-traffic areas and construction zones to avoid. So, you and your traveling companions can sit back and relax and leave the hassles of the airport and downtown traffic behind.

Even if your corporate travel plans don’t include flying, you can still benefit from a chauffeured car service. If your business trip involves visiting multiple venues, booking ahead means you have dependable business event transportation already in place.

Schedule specific dates, times, and destinations well in advance to ensure you and your passengers arrive at each event safely, in comfort, and on time.

 

 

Airport Parking Horrors: Why It’s Better to Get a Limo Rental

 

 

Limo transportation also helps you to make a good first impression upon arrival. Choosing luxury ground transportation demonstrates both your business sense and reliability as a decision maker. In addition, your employees will more than appreciate your consideration of their comfort and needs, allowing them time to focus on business matters at hand.

Many a presentation has been perfected in the back of a stretch limousine. That would be extremely difficult to accomplish in a rental car, taxicab, Uber or Lyft vehicle. Furthermore, in the event of a sudden rainstorm, your chauffeur will be waiting to assist you and your companions with an umbrella, as well as help carrying any work materials or parcels you may have acquired during your business events.

Booking your luxury ground transportation in advance also affords you considerable savings. The earlier you reserve your limousine cars, the better the deal!

 

 

What About Evening Entertainment?

After a long day of meetings or business events, it’s time to unwind with a nice meal and a visit to some local hot spots. When you plan ahead, you have the luxury of planning how to spend your downtime. What better way to explore the city than in an elegant limousine?

Your chauffeur will provide safe, discreet curbside pick-up and drop-off to your destination of choice. You even have a guaranteed designated driver, so you and your companions can relax and unwind knowing that you have safe transportation around town and back to your hotel.

 

 

Party in a Bus: It Could Boost Office Morale

 

 

Remember that when you book a limousine service, you get so much more than just a driver and a fancy car. Your chauffeur can also act as your personal concierge, so don’t hesitate to inform him or her if there is anything that you need.

Your chauffeur is also an expert local guide. He or she will be glad to offer suggestions on the best restaurants and clubs in the area. Consider asking for recommendations on local attractions or sporting events to attend while you’re in town.

You can depend on the best limousine service possible when you reserve your luxury ground transportation with A1A Limo Service.

Concierge Job Description : Luxury At It’s Finest

Do you ever find yourself in need of an extra pair of hands? In today’s busy world, most people go through this every day. There’s never enough time in the day for all the errands and other mundane tasks we need to accomplish. Personal concierge services can make your life a lot easier and for a lot less than you may think.

 


So, exactly what is a concierge’s job description?

 

 

Concierge Service’s Meaning

First off, what is the correct concierge pronunciation? It’s a French word, so it can be tricky, CON-SEE-AIR. When most people think of a concierge, high-end hotels come to mind. However, did you know that personal concierge services encompass anything from walking your dog, running errands, grocery shopping, and much more?

Visiting South Florida for Business or Pleasure?

Let A1A Limo Service take the stress out of traveling by providing a professionally-trained personal concierge. For the duration of your visit, we will provide you with the utmost care and support to meet your every need.

 

 

Personal Concierge Services

Let’s delve a little deeper into just what services are provided by a personal concierge. As any successful entrepreneur knows, delegation is important in all walks of life. We can’t possibly do everything ourselves without compromising the quality of life.

What can you expect when you hire a personal concierge? The answer is just about anything you need help with:

Errands – Every time we turn around there’s an errand that needs to be addressed. It all takes time away from our busy day. If we own a business or have a 9-to-5 job, it requires skipping lunch, taking time off, or trying to fit it all in after hours. However, some establishments aren’t open after hours. In addition, you’ve worked all day long. Is this really what you want to do in your down time?

A personal concierge will ensure all of your important errands are taken care of.

 

Some examples are:

 

  • Picking up/dropping off dry cleaning, prescriptions, library books, etc.
  • Returning products to the store
  • Going to the Post Office
  • Setting appointments
  • Taking your vehicle in for maintenance/repairs
  • Picking up lunch/dinner
  • Booking dinner reservations and transportation
  • Planning business events and corporate travel
  • Walking your dog at scheduled times, as well as taking care of them when you’re away
  • Wrapping gifts, addressing holiday cards, or sending out invitations
  • Decorating for the holidays
  • Reserving hotel rooms and other accommodations for corporate travel, vacations, or when friends/family visit
  • Watching over your home while you’re out-of-town on business or pleasure, as well as overseeing service calls, repairs, or cleaning services in your home when you’re unavailable
  • Developing/maintaining your social media
  • Arranging a day of golfing, or other entertainment
  • Keeping you organized and efficient
  • Aiding in estate planning

    The list goes on and on!

 

 

Luxury Ground Transportation Helps to Make a Good First Impression

 

 

If you’re a business professional or frequent traveler, let A1A Limo Service provide you with affordable luxury ground transportation. We provide the very best in limo transportation, as well as any personal concierge services you may require.

Shopping – Going to the store for groceries, gifts, and what not is a real drain on your time. No matter what you need, by providing a list, a personal concierge can take care of all your shopping needs. This can be especially helpful to business professionals, as well as overstretched parents, the elderly or disabled.

Grocery shopping is a necessity, but very time consuming. Stores are often crowded, with only one or two cash registers open. After a long day, this isn’t where you want to find yourself.

Gift shopping can be a real chore and, if it’s during the holidays, you have to deal with crowds of shoppers, parking issues, as well as traffic. By providing a detailed list, your gift shopping will be handled with expert and ease. If there are a few things to choose from, you’ll receive a phone message with photos, pricing information, and any specifications you may need to make an easy decision.

So, whether it’s shopping at the mall, hardware store, a kiosk, toy store, or tractor supply, a personal concierge has you covered.

Business Travel Tips: Mastering the Mobile Office

Business travel is inevitable for today’s professional, regardless of what type of business you operate. Executives are on the move, with trips ranging from across town to across the oceans. Companies large and small send representatives to meetings, conferences, and even training events.

This begs the question: How do you get any work done with all of this traveling? In order to be successful, one must learn to tackle work and travel demands simultaneously. Whether that means working through a flight or in the back of a stretch limousine, a true professional must learn to make his or her office mobile.

Working On The Go

Leaving work behind because of your business travel means you are leaving your business behind. However, being on the road doesn’t have to cost your business productivity.

It is essential that you have the necessary tools to access your business on the go. That is, you should be able to carry out business activities whether you’re in the hotel or traveling via black car service.

Maintaining a mobile office ensures that you can keep up with any new developments that affect your work. For example, current events such as changes in governmental policies can heavily impact your business.

You can also stay connected with your employees through various smart device applications. There’s no need to wait to share information or techniques learned at a conference when a video conference call will let you share that information with your colleagues right away.

Packing For Business Travel

Deciding what to pack in your carry-on isn’t always easy. However, one of the most important rules of corporate travel is to pack as little as possible. When you travel light, you can move more quickly, since you won’t we weighed down by extra luggage. That’s important because, as a business professional, your time is money.

Knowing what you need is the key to packing the right stuff. In other words, don’t pack something just because you think that you might use it. Only pack things that you know you’ll need during your trip.

In addition, try not to check a bag unless it’s absolutely necessary. This will eliminate the time it takes to check the bag before the flight as well as the time it takes to get to baggage claim and find your suitcase after you land. In addition, most airlines allow a personal item and a carry-on bag. Not only should this eliminate the need for an extra bag to check, but it also gives you something in which to carry your everyday items while you’re away.

So, what should you pack?

  • Choose basic clothing items that pair well together. This will ensure that you can get the most wear out of the fewest items.
  • Remember to wear your heaviest items to the airport so that they don’t take up space in your luggage. However, be mindful of how many layers you’ll have to remove as you go through security.
  • Don’t forget your smartphone, laptop and other smart devices. You will need them to stay connected.

Using Technology To Your Advantage

Technology is your best friend during corporate travel. Not long ago, travelers may have found themselves stuck in a new city without knowing anything about where they needed to go or how to get there. Back then, you would have to find someplace to buy a map or ask a stranger for directions.

Nowadays, all you have to do is pull out your smartphone. This device single-handedly provides maps, traffic information, and other vital information at the touch of a button. This technology enables you to stay ahead of the game like never before. Just because you’re out of the office, that doesn’t mean that you have to be disconnected from it entirely. 

Thanks to modern technology, you can now check your email, take a video conference call, and even work on business reports without being stuck at your desk. Some companies also use software that allows you to access your work computer or files while you’re away. 

When you’re out for business travel, there are a multitude of apps that let you gather information about your destination before you arrive. You can even access real-time updates for your flight or other transportation accommodations.

Install These Mobile Apps

Constant connectivity is becoming steadily more important for business professionals. Look to apps like these to improve your productivity and workflow, whether you’re working from the office or on a business travel trip.

Evernote

Keep your notes and memos organized with this app. When you’re traveling, you don’t want to have to keep up with notepads, journals, and writing utensils at all times. With Evernote, you don’t have to, either.

The app lets you keep all of your important information at your fingertips. Plus, it’s searchable, so you can locate files quickly and easily. It also syncs across your devices, so you have access to your notes wherever you are.

Office 365

Microsoft Office is now Office 365. However, the name isn’t the only thing new about this program suite. You can now access vital Microsoft programs such as Word, Powerpoint, and Excel, on your mobile devices as well as your PC.

Your work saves to Microsoft OneDrive, so you can access the cloud from any device, anywhere. In addition, you won’t have to worry about outdated software. Office 365 processes updates as they are released, so you always have the most current version.

LinkedIn

Have you ever forgotten or run out of business cards while you were out on business travel? If you have a LinkedIn account, you’ve got the next best thing! That’s because your profile is actually something like a New Age business card. With LinkedIn, you can manage your online presence as a business professional.

Like any social network, you can interact with your connections and see recent happenings in your newsfeed. However, your LinkedIn profile is more focused on your business life than your social life.

Profiles highlight users resumés, projects, and even recent publications. With this app, you can keep in contact with business partners and clients while getting updates within your business sector.

Dropbox

This is one of the best all-encompassing digital business tools. It serves as a home for all aspects of your work projects, from file storage to collaborating with team members. In fact, collaborating online allows you to work on projects wherever you are.

Dropbox allows you to share your files with your contacts, even if they don’t have an account with the service themselves. Dropbox Paper provides a collaborative workspace where you and your team can work with any and all types of digital media in one place. There is even a special version plan for businesses to be able to get the most out of the service.

Taking Your Work On The Road

Traveling doesn’t mean that you have to leave your work behind. Modern technology supports you and your business so that you can make the most of your travel time. You can make your corporate travel even more productive with the right business event transportation.

A1A Airport and Limousine Service provides much more that just luxury ground transportation. Although our fleet features some of the most comfortable limousine cars, they are also quite functional!

Today’s limo transportation options allow you to stay connected to the outside world while you ride between offices and meetings. In fact, with our spacious limo bus options you can even hold a meeting onboard!

Travel Tips: Secrets to Avoiding Corporate Travel Fees

Being a business professional, you are bound to travel quite a lot for work. You are expected to make visits within your city, to other cities and, in some cases, even to another country. As a business traveler, it is essential to keep track of the costs that you incur during corporate travel.

Hidden costs are lurking everywhere, and it often seems impossible to avoid them. Whether it’s your airline ticket, your hotel reservation, or even your black car service, you have probably paid hidden costs that you never knew about. Remember to take your time when making corporate travel or vacation arrangements and always read the fine print.

 

Common Fees That Cut Into Your Corporate Travel Budget

Keep an eye out for some of these common travel fees. By simply noticing these details, you’re halfway to cutting them out of your budget!

 

 

1) Booking Fees

Airline booking fees account for a big chunk of your corporate travel expenses. If you have a travel agent with whom you book your tickets, you will be surprised by how much commission they charge in addition to your ticket price. Another problem is the hidden cost associated with flexible tickets. Even if your ticket says flexible, you may be charged for the change of travel dates.

Furthermore, when you are booking a ticket, it is crucial that you read the information in the fine print. Companies hide additional charges that you only find out about during check out. Many companies offer the option of holding your ticket at the same price if you are not certain about your travel dates.

 

 

Plan Ahead For 2019 Corporate Travel

 

 

Solution: If you’re not obligated to book from your company’s travel agent, then you should book directly with your airline. Booking a ticket directly saves time and money, which is great because both are essential to you and your company.

In addition, you may even find promotional tickets and bundle deals that complement your travel plans. If you can find a good promotional ticket, then you will further reduce your air travel expenses.

 

 

2) Checked Bag Fees

These are probably the most easily avoidable travel fees. You may find many fantastic deals on the internet for your ticket, but often those tickets are without checked luggage. This additional cost ranges anywhere from $20-$100 per bag, depending on the airline rules.

Although checking your bag may seem convenient, you have to think about what it really entails. It’s nice to be able to board the plane and go straight to your seat without having to shove your bag into the overhead space. However, finding your luggage after landing can take much more time.

 

 

The Pros & Cons: Private Aviation vs Public Airport

 

 

Solution: The best advice is to travel light and avoid carrying any extra bags. Avoiding checking in luggage will help you save time and extra money. Try to pack only what you need and stick to a single carry-on.

For longer trips or for those who cannot fit everything in one bag, look for airlines that allow a personal item on board in addition to your carry-on bag. If you absolutely have to carry a larger bag, then look at the charges before you check in and avoid any surprises.

 

 

3) Hotel Room Charges

Hotels around the world are becoming increasingly aggressive about room charges. Watch out for amenities that aren’t inclusive in the price of the room. For example, just because your hotel has Wi-Fi doesn’t mean that it’s free to access.

Furthermore, be sure to check the disclaimer on your welcome basket. If you find your room stocked with snacks and drinks when you arrive, look to make sure that it’s not accompanied by a price list. Popping the cap on that refreshing bottle of water may have added another charge, billed directly to your room.

 

 

Corporate Travel to Conference Room: Business Wardrobe Essentials

 

 

Solution: Look for hotels and suites with complimentary services, like breakfast and internet access. Extended-stay suites often cater to traveling business professionals, so they are more likely to have well-equipped business centers, exercise centers, and even conference rooms.

For more of a luxury trip, looks for all-inclusive access. Most importantly, be sure to read the details about what is included in the cost of your accommodations. If you’re not sure, call the front desk before using any items or services.

 

 

4) Currency Conversion and Foreign Transactions

If you’re an international traveler, converting currency can be a real headache. However, it is necessary to keep you from paying outrageous charges later. Buying items with your cards in a foreign country puts you in a position to incur multiple types of charges.

One of these is a currency conversion fee. This is when retailers use Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) to allow you the option to see your purchase in dollars rather than the local currency at checkout. The second type of charge is a foreign transaction fee. Your credit card company may charge you simply for using your card outside of your home country. Furthermore, you may incur both of these charges on the same transaction.

 

 

Turn Your Expertise Into A Money Raking Business Idea

 

 

Solution: Say no to DCC. Retailers are required to ask you first before converting your bill using DCC. If you say no, you will see the charge in the local currency. You can then convert the charge for your records using a currency conversion app on your smartphone. Your credit card company may still charge you for currency conversion, but this rate will be much lower than the DCC charge.

In addition, frequent international travelers may benefit from opening a credit card with no foreign transaction fees. However, what’s better than paying with plastic is converting actual cash to the local currency.

You can do this before you depart or after you enter your host country, but it’s best to do it beforehand at a bank. Bank exchange rates will be better than what you’ll find at the airport and may be better than what you find abroad.

 

 

5) Unpredictable Transportation Costs

Luxury ground transportation doesn’t have to be expensive, but hidden fees rack up quickly if you aren’t careful. Cab fares consist of base fees, variable mileage rates, and other sneaky charges.

Being a tourist, you may even be charged higher. Airport shuttles and other business event transportation for your corporate travel can be excessively costly if you haven’t chosen the right service provider.

However, driving yourself isn’t any better. Rental cars are expensive and carry lots of hidden fees. Some rental companies even require you to cover their car on your own insurance policy. Moreover, driving in a foreign country can be dangerous if you aren’t fully aware of local laws and customs.

 

 

Book Limo Rental That’s Luxurious and Cost Effective

 

 

Solution: It is essential that you know how much you will be paying for your entire journey. Try to book as much of your business event transportation as possible with a reliable private transportation provider. This protects you from price gouging as well as ensures that you travel safely on every leg of your journey. You’ll also know ahead of time how much you’ll pay and when your ride will arrive.

A1A Airport and Limo Service provides affordable limousine service and black car service worldwide, so you’ll never have to settle for anything less than the best. Our diverse fleet features Town Cars and sedans for solo travelers as well as larger limousine and party bus rental options for large groups.

Holiday Gift Guide: Corporate Travel Edition

The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.     

– Charles Dudley Warner

It can be difficult to find the perfect gift for the entrepreneur or business professional in your life. This is especially true if corporate travel keeps them away for long periods. You may not know what this person already has at home since they are on the road too often to hang out much. However, you could actually use the fact that your friend or loved one is a frequent traveler to your advantage when it comes to holiday giving.

 

Great Gifts To Improve Corporate Travel

It is essential for traveling that everything is lightweight, compact, practical, and accessible. As such, there are tons of products that are created with travelers in mind, and even some engineered for business travelers. Since these busy business professionals don’t have much time to shop for themselves, consider picking up some of these handy items as a holiday gift.

 

Backpacks Aren’t Just For Students

Frequent corporate travel means business professionals are always on the go! There is nothing worse than long lines and a lot of walking at the airport. Nothing, that is, except dealing with the airport while trying to juggle your luggage, phone, computer, and other personal items.

Most airlines will allow you a personal item in addition to your carry on bag. One good corporate travel hack is to use a backpack as your personal item. Rather than carrying your laptop case on its own, many of these travel backpacks have laptop sleeves built in. You can then use the various other external pockets for your phone, keys, and other items that you need to keep handy. 

Airport Parking Horrors: Why It’s Better to Get a Limo Rental

 

Traveling this way is a lot easier because you can free your hands and yet still have quick access to all of your stuff. If you travel light enough, you may even be able to get away with combining your carryon and personal item into just the one backpack!

For a good example, check out Swiss Gear’s family of TSA Friendly ScanSmart Laptop BackpacksThey each have plenty of room inside for all of your accessories and personal carry-on items. They are also available with a water bottle pocket on the side. No frequent flyer should be without one!

 

Slip Your Laptop Into Something More Comfortable

When your job requires a lot of corporate travel, your office never gets left behind. In fact, you bring it with you in the form of your laptop, cell phone, or a briefcase full of business reports. 

You don’t want to take any chances when traveling with an expensive, fragile laptop or tablet. Carrying these important business tools within a sleeve protects your device from rain, spills, and other types of damage. However, the sleeve’s dimensions are very important, as they will limit which devices can fit inside of it. A laptop sleeve makes a wonderful type of gift for any business professional, just be sure that you get a gift receipt if you are unsure of the recipient’s laptop measurements. 

The Velomacchi Speedway Impact Laptop Sleeve has four tie-down loops, which can easily accommodate any strap carrying configuration. Its material protects your devices from impact from drops of up to 4 feet!  This sleeve comes in several sizes to fit tablets and up to 15-inch laptops.

 

Don’t Stop The Music

Even though corporate travel means packing light, that doesn’t mean that audio-fidelity enthusiasts should have to do without. There are several things that travelers can do to feel more at home while on the road. One of these things is to listen to their favorite music while they settle into their home away from home.

For room-filling sound, cast music from your phone to a powerful Bluetooth speaker. One high-quality example is the V-Moda Remix Bluetooth Speaker. This device is one of the highest rated portable Bluetooth speakers on the market. The sound quality is stellar, thanks in part to the built-in amp. The Remix can play music in a variety of formats and also has a headphone jack. However, the best part is that this speaker is lightweight enough to make the perfect for your music-loving corporate traveler.

Airport Etiquette: How To Travel Like A Boss

 

For cord-free music on the go, consider a pair of wireless earbuds. These work just like your favorite pair of standard earbuds, except that they have no wires! This allows you to move freely with an uninterrupted personal audio experience.

The Jabra Elite 65t Wireless Earbuds are sleek, unobtrusive, and offer a more professional representation of completely-wireless headphones than Apple’s AirPods. They provide high-quality sound and crystal clear calling capability, making them very popular with active business professionals. As an added bonus, they stay put, even during strenuous exercise and have a hands-free calling feature.

 

Host A Party In A Bus

Are you a business owner planning a party for your employees? Why not reserve a party bus and treat everyone to a safe and fun night around town. Everyone loves a party, especially around the holidays.

These buses are huge, so there is plenty of room for everybody. Plus, there’s no need to argue over who’ll be the evening’s designated drivers. With safe curbside drop-off and pick-up by a professionally-trained chauffeur and your own personal concierge, you and your companions can hit all the hotspots in style. Forget renting an expensive venue, plan your party in a bus! All you have to do is plan out your destinations and let your party bus rental service do the rest!

For the best in luxury ground transportation, plan your limo bus party with A1A Airport and Limousine Service! We specialize in corporate travel, airport shuttle service, and business event transportation. Furthermore, our worldwide affiliate network lets us bring our services to you, wherever you are!

 

Rest Your Head

Some people can fall asleep anywhere, while others have a very difficult time sleeping on airplanes. The right travel pillow can save the day! There are several styles available, featuring various filler materials, fabrics, and firmness levels. These pillows range from extremely simple, neck-sized versions of throw pillows to exquisite works of art targeted to the buyer’s health needs.

Take the Cabeau Evolution Travel Pillow, for example. This travel pillow features a responsive memory foam core for great neck support. It also has a removable cover and a carrying case, which you can clip onto a carry-on bag or backpack. With an adjustable strap, you get the support you need without worrying about your pillow slipping once you fall asleep. Plus, it’s comfortable enough even for long overnight flights.

 

Keep The Electronics Juiced Up

Traveling really puts a strain on the battery life of an electronic device. Considering how reliant we have become on technology, it’s a good idea to have extra batteries, portable chargers, or another power source on-hand for easy charging.

Cell Phone Accessories

A portable power bank is an incredibly useful gift for any business traveler. The Ventev Powercell 6010+ is a great choice because it carries enough power to charge your phone more than once while still being thin and lightweight enough for travel. This brand is especially popular because it comes in versions to accommodate USB-C or Apple Lightning compatible devices.

Beat The Clock: Saving Time During Airport Travel

 

When you rely on your phone or other electronic devices, traveling comes with anxiety surrounding whether your device has enough charge to make it to your destination. The most practical way to ensure that your business professional friend or loved one never gets stuck with a dead battery is to give them a case with a backup battery built right in. 

That’s right. There are now mobile phone cases that keep your battery charged up and ready to go! This affordable backup power solution makes a perfect multi-purpose gift. The options are seemingly endless, but knowing your loved one’s phone type weeds out many of them. You can search for these battery-charging cases by phone compatibility or by case manufacturer. Either way, there are many affordable high-quality options from reputable manufacturers.

Power Backup For Other Gadgets

Any business professional that travels internationally should have a global electrical adapter. This will ensure that computers, phones, tablets, and any other electronic device can be safely charged using foreign outlets. The reason for these types of adapters is that different parts of the world have different electrical rating and plug styles for their outlets.

There are many different makes and styles, but the best option is an adapter that supports all outlet types in one device with built-in plugs for each. The Eagle Creek Universal Travel Adapter Pro has built-in USB chargers, surge protection, and is suitable for both two- and three-prong plugs. This is far more practical than having to carry around several different charging cables or plug adapters. 

Chauffeur vs. Driver: What’s the Difference?

 

Treat Your Loved Ones To Luxury Travel

Sometimes travel is more of a necessity than a choice. However, rather than stress about the hassles of traveling, it’s better to take advantage of the opportunity as a chance to kick back and relax. When you ride with a chauffeured car service, you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Get The VIP Treatment After The Flight

What would be a better surprise for incoming travelers than having a luxury sedan or stretch limousine waiting for them at the airport? Their chauffeur will assist with their luggage and escort your visitors into their waiting limousine cars.

With affordable limousine service from A1A Airport and Limousine Service, you can choose the best vehicle options to fit your travel needs.

The Pros & Cons: Private Aviation vs Public Airport

When it comes to flying, most people pack their bags and head to the public airport. However, did you know that there are other options? In addition to the major airlines that fly through the public airport, there is also private aviation. Let’s take a look at these very different experiences.

Airport Travel: Secrets To Fighting Jet Lag

 

Choosing the Best Flight: Public Airport vs Private Aviation

Flying in a private plane is much different than in a commercial plane. Private aviation opens a whole new range of options, but are they better ones? Compare the two here and then decide which is right for you.

But first, we should define a few terms so that we know that we’re on the same page.

Public vs Private:

For something to be public, it must be accessible to everyone. Private is just the opposite. Something private is exclusive, so there must be some barrier to entry. For example, look at private clubs, which require a membership fee.

Airport Etiquette: How To Travel Like A Boss

 

Airport Definition:

What does a location need to be an airport? It has to have runways for aircraft landings and takeoffs. Airports may also have facilities to meet passengers needs before or after the flight, such as restaurants, restrooms, and waiting areas.

Private Aviation Definition:

This is any part of civil aviation that doesn’t include flying for hire. That means there are no commercial airlines. The pilot will cover all or some of the flight’s operation costs. If the passengers pay to fly, they will only be splitting the flight’s costs with the pilot, rather than paying by the seat.

Now, with that out of the way,

let’s go over what public and private aviation have to offer.

 

Amenities

For the best amenities in luxury ground transportation, you would hire a limousine service. So, it seems that logic would point to private aviation as a more luxurious way to fly. However, just like beauty, luxury is also in the eye of the beholder.

At a public airport, you will find standard amenities include restaurants, shops, and waiting lounges. Some even have complimentary Wi-Fi. There is no shortage of things to do during your layovers or wait time. Unless you have a really late or early flight when those shops and restaurants are closed, that is.

However, with private aviation, there’s not really a need for any of that. When you’re flying in a private plane, your flight is arranged on your time. That means no waiting for your flight and no layovers. With fewer seats on the plane, there is also more room to make the available seating much more comfortable than on the average airline.

Posture Is Everything: How To Have Excellent Posture As A Business Professional

 

Personal Space

Lately, commercial airlines have been trying to better accommodate passengers’ needs for personal space. Some airlines advertise larger seats for comfort or seating sections with more legroom. Nonetheless, you’re still essentially traveling in an airborne room full of strangers.

On the other hand, private aviation prioritizes your privacy and personal space. When you have the whole aircraft to yourself, there are no questions about who is flying with you. However, if you’re a people person, you may find traveling alone to be lonely.

In that case, consider booking your next private flight for a luxury vacation with some friends. Better yet, you can multitask with private aviation for corporate travel. With the whole aircraft to yourself, you could hold an in-flight meeting and brief your staff before landing for your big meeting.

Efficiency

When it comes to corporate travel, there’s no time to waste. Public airports are typically located in major travel hubs, so you will have ample access to public or luxury ground transportation. However, fighting through a crowded public airport can really slow you down. As such, frequent business travelers may prefer private aviation.

A private flight is targeted with your destination in mind. It will only go where you need it to land. There will be no worries about long layovers or rushing to catch a connecting flight at another airport across town.

In addition, private flights can get off of the ground more quickly without having to wait for so many passengers to board. Once your group is aboard and ready, you’ll be up, up, and away!

Epic Qualities You Will Find In A Chauffeured Limo Service

 

The Bottom Line

Regardless of how you choose to fly, you’ll still need a ride to your flight.

Don’t take a chance by leaving your car in a public airport parking lot. Let it stay safe at home while you enjoy a luxurious airport shuttle ride from a trusted limousine service, like A1A Limo.

Choose your perfect vehicle from our fleet, ranging from Town Cars to jumbo limo bus options. Our professional chauffeurs will get you to your flight on time and in style!

Private Aviation: Fly Privately in Luxury

What is Private Aviation? 

Private aviation is a luxury unto itself. When you fly privately, you get the whole plane all to yourself. Smaller planes allow passengers to enjoy each other’s company in a more intimate setting.That is, you and your friends get the privilege of only flying with those you know.

The Best Part About Private Aviation:

No worries of sharing a row of tiny seats with strangers or crying children.

When you’re heading to fly privately, you are preparing for a journey with your comfort and needs in mind. Shouldn’t the ride to the plane be just as luxurious? Just like an airport shuttle will get you to the major airports, you can also hire limo transportation to take you to a private flight.

Ride Privately Before You Fly Privately

Nothing compares to a limousine service when it comes to meeting your personal transportation needs.

While most people imagine limo rental as something reserved for special occasions, there is much more to it than that. A more accurate description would be that limo rental can turn any experience into a special occasion.

Business executives and others who travel for business often hire a limousine service to handle their corporate travel needs. Whether they travel by stretch limousine or Town Cars, they receive the same personal level of service.

What You Can Expect From A Limousine Service

First of all, much of what you can expect is right there in the name. A limousine service provides high-end luxury ground transportation with a professional chauffeur at your service.

Safety & Security

Riding with a chauffeur is much safer than calling a cab or ride-sharing service.

  • For one, a chauffeur must maintain special licensing to prove that he or she is up to the job. Compare that to other drivers who only carry a standard driver’s license.

In addition to that, a good limo transportation company will maintain a full, diverse fleet of high-end luxury cars. These cars are guaranteed to be safe, thanks to the high-quality standards that they must meet.

In the event something happens to your vehicle, a replacement can be dispatched right away. You won’t get that from a cab company or Uber.

Reliable & Dependable

A professional chauffeur is someone that you can rely on to be on-time in any circumstance. Your ride is more likely to be early than to pull up at the last second.

  • Knowing when your ride will arrive gives you much more peace of mind than standing on a curb hoping that a driver will come along soon.

When it comes to driving skills, your chauffeur has received some of the best training available. He or she is knowledgeable of the local area and which routes to avoid.

No matter whether your flight is leaving from a major airport or private hangar, your chauffeur will get you there quickly and safely. You can even request the scenic route, if time permits.

An Extra Set of Hands

Traveling for vacation or an extended business trip? You may be carrying a lot of luggage. Don’t get left holding the bag! Your chauffeur or personal concierge is more than happy to help load everything on-board.

What if you need a little extra help getting ready? A personal concierge can help with that, too. He or she can pick up lunch while you pack your bags. If there are other errands that you don’t have time to handle, just pass off your to-do list.

Your personal concierge will help you take a look at which tasks they can take over for you.

The Right Ride for Any Group

A diverse fleet is necessary for any good limo transportation company. Couples or solo travelers will enjoy the comforts of classic luxury sedans, like Lincoln Town Cars. For larger groups, a stretch limousine will get you where you need to go in style.

For corporate travel, an executive van or limo bus has plenty of seating and storage for everyone in the office.

Corporate Travel to Conference Room: Business Wardrobe Essentials

Business professionals are the absolute masters of multitasking. You’re almost never simply doing one thing at a time. This is especially true when it comes to corporate travel.

Think about how many times you’ve seen someone on a conference call during lunch or finishing up a business call while running for a flight. Then there are all those conversations with colleagues that start with, “Walk with me.”

 

Who Needs A Luxury Airport Shuttle?

 

Modern business event transportation is designed with these things in mind. These days, limousine cars are equipped with enough amenities that they can function as a mobile office. While your chauffeur does the driving, you can work on business reports. Hands-free conference calls are easy when you can connect your phone to the car’s Bluetooth. You could even give a presentation on the road in a limo bus.

From Corporate Travel To Conference Room

With such a busy schedule, you need a wardrobe that’s as versatile as you are. Freshen up your business attire with some of these modern pieces. Then think about what you could do with all the space you’ll save in your carry-on!

Keep It Neutral

We all have that one article of clothing that is super comfortable, yet unfashionably obnoxious. While you may think that it’s best to travel in comfy clothes, it’s best to leave the loud colors and unflattering shapes out of corporate travel.

Instead, opt for clothing in neutral tones like browns, grays, and tans. Basic blue and black are also great wardrobe options. This way, you can walk straight off of the plane and into the boardroom without having to stop to change.

Turn Your Expertise Into A Money Raking Business Idea

Pick Plentiful Pockets

No one wants to be the one who has to search through their bags at every checkpoint. It’s much more efficient to keep important documents on your person. However, one person can only hold so much. You need your hands free to open doors and carry your bags. So, what can you do?

First of all, try to avoid any article of clothing that doesn’t come with pockets. Try garments on in the store rather than taking them home straight off of the rack. You need to try out the pocket system. Put your hands in each pocket while imagining trying to get something in and out if it in a hurry.

A great option is a travel vest. Try to find one that looks like a suit jacket without the sleeves. You can then wear it over a long-sleeved top in a basic color. This gives you the professional look with the added functionality of somewhere to keep your stuff.

Select Sensible Shoes

Believe it or not, your choice in shoes can make a big difference in your travel experience. You must find a good middle ground between functional and fashionable. For example, sky-high heels may look nice, but they make it a little difficult to walk from one side of the airport to the other.

Try wearing slip-on shoes on corporate travel days. If you’re flying, you’re going to have to take off your shoes to get through security. Slip-on shoes are much easier to take on and off. These days, it’s fairly easy to find business-appropriate shoes in these styles. For example, consider penny loafers for men or ballet flats for women.

As an added bonus, wearing more comfortable shoes will have you moving more quickly through crowded terminals instead of limping with blisters from more ill-fitting options. When you’re more comfortable, you’re also more relaxed. No matter whether you arrive by plane or luxury ground transportation, you’ll be more refreshed and prepared to start your meeting on the right foot.

Headed For Business Travel? 4 Reasons To Hire Limo Service Transportation

Prioritize Comfortable Clothing

Much like comfortable shoes take some of the load off of your feet, your body with thank you for choosing comfortable clothing. For example, form-fitting dresses are always popular. However, if it’s not made of a breathable fabric, you may arrive with your dress looking more like a sweaty mess. This also goes for men who travel in their full business suits.

Instead, look for business casual options made from breathable fabrics, like cotton. Avoid tight-fitting polyester when traveling. In warmer climates, the fabrics will stick to you. That doesn’t look or feel very nice.

Curate A Capsule Wardrobe

A capsule wardrobe consists of a small number of highly versatile pieces. This is helpful for several reasons.

First of all, when you need fewer pieces overall, you can afford to invest more into individual items. That means that the items you choose will be much higher quality. This, in turn, will ensure that the pieces last longer.

Having fewer items of clothing means less packing. When you have less to pack, you can spend your time in more meaningful ways. For example, getting ahead on work or exploring your travel destination. You will also save time getting ready each morning when you have fewer items to choose from. Plus, everything in your capsule wardrobe matches, so there are no worries about items clashing.

What Should You Include In Your Capsule Wardrobe?

For this type of wardrobe, you’ll need to learn to look at clothing by its type. By that, we mean dividing clothing into categories. The number of pieces can change, but the point is to carry as few pieces as possible to achieve the maximum amount of different looks.

Take this breakdown, for example:

Outerwear: 3 Pieces

These can be three suit jackets, each in a different color. Another example would be a light coat, a heavy coat, and a cardigan. These options will depend on your style.

Tops: 5-6 Pieces

You should choose shirts in a variety of color and sleeve lengths. Tops provide an opportunity to add a breath of fresh air to your outfit. An otherwise basic pant or skirt suit looks completely different, just by changing the shirt or top paired with it.

Packing For Business Travel: Essential Items To Bring Along

Bottoms: 3-4 Pieces

Keep these basic, as they will need to match with your top and outerwear options. A skirt or pair of trousers in each basic color should provide enough variety to mix and match.

Shoes: 2-4 Pairs

Some of these categories may overlap, but for footwear, you should have:

  • Slip-on shoes
  • Dress shoes
  • Business casual shoes

Accessories: 5-10 Pieces

This is where you get to spice it up a bit. Don’t go too crazy, but pick a few statement pieces. Good options include a pair of sunglasses, one or two sets of jewelry, or a couple of fun ties.

Remember: Each outfit needs only one statement piece.

If you’re wearing a bright red tie, you don’t also need bright red sunglasses.

Arrive In Style With Limo Transportation

You’ve put a lot of effort into looking good and feeling comfortable as you travel. Don’t let an unpleasant ride spoil all of your hard work. With affordable limousine service from A1A Limo, you’ll show up looking like a million bucks. Whether you need an airport shuttle or business event transportation, we’ve got your corporate travel needs covered.

Our fleet features luxury sedans and Town Cars, as well as classic stretch limousine options. We are based in South Florida, but provide worldwide luxury ground transportation service through our global affiliate network.

Successful Entrepreneurs Have These Top Traits – Do You?

“Great leaders have three things; inner light, inner vision and inner strength.”

― Amit Ray,

Mindfulness Meditation for Corporate Leadership and Management

It takes more than big dreams to succeed in the business world. There are several traits that the best entrepreneurs tend to have in common. How do you measure up when it comes to these key characteristics?

 

Top Traits For Successful Entrepreneurs

What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur? You’ve got to have drive, ambition, a certain level of charm, wit, and many other things. However, there are some foundational traits that make all of the other building blocks of a good business person fall into place. Let’s take a look at them.

 

Courage

While many people will list ambition as a major trait for entrepreneurs, courage takes this concept a step further. Ambition refers to the desire for something, such as success, power, or a certain position within a company. Having a desire to succeed is good, but it takes something more to achieve those desires.

Once you’ve acknowledged what you desire in business, you must also have the drive to reach your goals. This is where many business ideas fail. Many people have good ideas but have no motivation to make them any more than just that. Even worse, some begin their journey to becoming entrepreneurs but lack the courage to take the big plunge.

 

How To: From Business Professional To Entrepreneur

 

That is to say, entering into the world of business is no easy thing. It can be frightening to take the necessary steps that require large investments. For example, it takes a lot of money to buy an office or set up a storefront. When your business is in its earliest stages, there is no way to know if that investment will pay off. It takes a lot of courage to make that leap and invest in the future of your business.

Being courageous isn’t about being fearless. It’s about taking chances despite your fears. You may be surprised by how many of the biggest names in business still give themselves a pep talk in the back of a stretch limousine.

 

Integrity

Making the big decisions in your business is no easy task. However, these things can’t be put off just because they are difficult. The best that you can do is go about your daily life with integrity. That is to say, you must do the right thing for the right reasons.

It’s not enough to do something nice for someone because that will leave them owing you something in the future. This isn’t really helping. It’s actually quite manipulative. Going about your business in this manner may help you in the short term, but it always results in something negative later on.

 

Epic Qualities You Will Find In A Chauffeured Limo Service

 

Instead, try to develop a way of doing business follows good moral and ethical principles. Be compassionate when your employees, clients, or partners fall upon hard times. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to become a pushover. Learning when and how to do the right thing takes time, but your business will be better for it.

Even the smallest decisions in business depend on your sense of integrity. For example, how would you respond to a major client flying into town for a meeting? Sure, they could drive themselves to your office from the airport.

However, you should take into account the fact that this person has likely come a long way to meet with you. It is only right to make them feel comfortable once they are in your area. Sending an airport shuttle to meet them shows that you care about them as a person, as well as a business interest. Your compassion will be remembered and may even be rewarded later.

 

Breaking the Myths Of Affordable Limousine Service

 

Honesty

This is perhaps the most important trait of all. If you are dishonest in business, you cannot act with integrity. In fact, dishonest entrepreneurs often lack the courage to tell the truth when it comes to the harsh realities of the business world.

For example, not every business decision is a good one. If your company is not turning a profit at the moment, admitting it may make you feel like a failure. It stings a bit to learn that you suddenly can’t afford to travel in the best limousine to every business meeting. However, disguising small setbacks doesn’t fix anything, and can, in fact, make matters worse.

Rather than continuing to operate as usual, it is important to be honest with your employees and business partners. You may have to make changes in production. You may even have to lay off part of your workforce. These are not simple decisions, but very few important business decisions are simple.

 

Self-Discipline

Although none of these important traits are simple, self-discipline may be the hardest one to learn. This means that you have to be able to make business moves on your own. That is to say that you can’t wait around for someone else to give you direction. As an entrepreneur, it is up to you to decide what needs doing, as well as when it needs to be done.

Long-term planning decisions will often fall on your shoulders. For example, you know that you or your colleagues will need to travel for business sometime. Rather than waiting for your corporate travel dates to sneak up on you, schedule yourself some time to consider your business event transportation options. Knowing the who, when, and where of your employees’ travel needs ahead of time allows you to make better judgments.

When you wait until the last minute, you chance making rushed decisions. This could cause you to make choices without all of the best information in front of you. Self-discipline is the foundation for many skills that entrepreneurs need to succeed, such as time management and other strong leadership skills.

 

Chauffeur vs. Driver: What’s the Difference?

 

Reason

This is another trait that ties into many other necessary skills for entrepreneurs. Reason is what allows you to make the right choice from your available options. For example, you may have many business plans before you. Several of them may technically work, but good logic and reasoning skills let you see which ones will be better in the long term.

For example, let’s return to the example of business event transportation. Everyone knows that there is no time to waste in corporate travel. However, short-sighted entrepreneurs may only see the quickest choice as the best choice. As such, they may walk off of the plane and hop into the first available taxi. While this quickly solved the immediate issue, there are better ways to handle this situation.

Successful entrepreneurs are focused on the best decisions for the long-term. These are the ones who take time early on in their business journey to develop a good relationship with an affordable limousine service. By establishing this relationship, these entrepreneurs don’t have to stress when it’s time to travel. They know that there is an airport shuttle waiting for them after the flight. They save time on travel arrangements and never have to pay outrageous cab fares.
