If you haven’t experience booking a chauffeured service before then this article is for you as we will discuss a few tips for booking an airport car service.
1. Write Down Your Confirmation Number
The first thing you need to do after booking your car service to or from the airport is printing out your confirmation number. You should write it down or record it on your phone in case of an emergency. It will help you in a situation of emergency or any other confusion.
2. Give Your Number to The Car Service
The car service needs your number for similar reasons. They might need to call you for booking details or pick up locations. Make sure you give them a working number so that they can reach you anytime. Most of the car service providers will ask your number at the time of booking. In case they forget, you should remind them and give your number too.
3. Keep The Drivers Updated
Many unexpected things may happen when you travel. If your flight is delayed or canceled then you should inform the driver about the situation. A good company’s driver will be punctual and he will be there at the airport before you arrive. He can check the flight schedule at the airport but it is important that you should inform him about the situation.
4. Spare Extra Time For International Departure
When you are traveling beyond borders then make sure you reach the airport early. Unlike domestic flights, international flights take more time because you have to go through customs and detailed security.
So when traveling internationally, inform your driver about your flight and make sure he drops you at the airport well before the flight time. Similarly, for an airport pickup service, inform the driver about the terminal and the estimated time to collect your baggage.
5. Determine The Place to Meet the Driver
Most of the drivers pick the passenger from the arrivals exit holding the name of the passenger. In some airports, drivers are allowed to receive the guests form baggage collection areas. However, if you want to meet the driver at a place other than these then let the driver know in advance.
Similarly, for the airport drop-off service, you should let the driver know the location of your hotel from where he can pick you up.
