3 Ways The Pandemic Has Changed The Limousine Industry
Regarding airport rides, many people prefer taking a limo service to the airport. People also prefer hiring a limo when they land; many fascinating reasons exist. Here are some of them.
Most people agree that a limo service is much better than a taxi or rideshare cab when catching your flight. Some even agree it is better than driving alone to the airport. First, the limo always comes well ahead of time, and the driver knows the city well. Hence, you can always fly to the airport when you take the limo. As for price, yes, it is costlier than taking public transportation, taxi, or ride share, but only a little. The benefits outweigh the little extra. As for those used to taking their car to the airport, most agree that hiring a limo is cheaper than keeping the car at the airport parking lot till they return. And a limo gives them a more comfortable ride than their car!
Another reason many fliers prefer limo, especially in a new city, is because the booking is done online. This means there is no need to handle cash or a card at the end of the ride. Plus, everything is paid before; sometimes, the tip is included. Some cities are notorious for their taxis taking new arrivals to the city for a ride to increase the taxi fare. However, with a limo service, this is never an issue.
Moreover, it is great to see someone waiting with a placard when you land, no matter the time of the day and the weather. The professional drivers also help the guests with their luggage while politely escorting them to the car. Compared to that, you must find your car when you go for a taxi or rideshare, plead with the driver to come to your location, and then stay alert the whole ride to ensure they are not trying to “take you for a ride”!
The third reason is recent; after the pandemic, people are more concerned about how clean their rides are. And when you go for limo service at the airport, you are guaranteed that the car will be thoroughly cleaned after the last ride. With a taxi or rideshare, the best you can hope for is the seat wiped after the last guest.
So, these are the three fascinating reasons people prefer limos when going to or from airports.
