We’ve spoken at length about the benefits of flying first class, including taking closer looks at the food, the company, the ease, the entertainment, and even the details of the seats, but there is more to flying than the flight.
When scheduling a flight, especially a long haul flight, more than the tickets and locations are needed to be calculated; there’s also the transportation to and from the airports in both or more locations. There’s booking the right hotel with the necessary amenities. There’s the total travel time, including checking in and settling in to the hotel that needs to be considered, and how it will affect any work missed.
Believe it or not, most, if not all of these issues can be resolved by hiring a chauffeur! How? In order to be booking your chauffeur to begin with, you’re likely already using a travel agency to book your flights and if they offered chauffeur service, they can offer all accompanying support as well, like booking your hotel for you.
Here are some more benefits:
No one wants to miss work because of something tedious and unavoidable like travel time. With a driver you have the opportunity to work your way through the drive and achieve double what you’d be able to if you were spending half your travel time navigating traffic and the other half flying in the sky, away from the internet.
There is a common misconception that rental cars are the way to go due to the independence you retain while traveling, and the control you have, but in reality, the combined costs of care and insurance, not to mention gas and tolls (and the added time for driving yourself) makes the fixed charge of a limo a no-brainer.
Sometimes you have a short, domestic flight that doesn’t take any work time from you, but when you’re flying to different continents four times a season, the jetlag is real and you need all the rest and relaxation you can get. If that means a driver for the one-hour trips to and from the airport, take it.
One company will schedule your chauffeur trips, but the actual drivers will be locals in both locations. That means they know the streets better than you and will know how to avoid traffic in case of a hurry.
