Professional Chauffeur Services – A Smart Way for Airport Transportation

download (30)Professional airport transport services are very convenient, because they allow you reach your flights or hotel rooms on time. The vehicles used by these limo services are generally well maintained, and you won’t have to worry about vehicle breakdown in the middle of nowhere.

There are many companies that provide this service, but you will need to find the right ones to serve you the best.

Good experience

Go through the websites of a few popular companies, and choose the one that has good experience and reputation in the field. Before hiring a cab, check their user reviews too. This will help you know if there are any negative remarks about the operator. Most of these service providers have attractive websites, but that does not mean that they all are good. So, choose wisely.

Vehicles used

Information about the vehicles available would make you more comfortable while using their services. Go for the operator that has new vehicles and different models, so that you can get a good number of choices.

The type of vehicle you choose is also depended on the number of passengers travelling. The operator must be able to provide a vehicle accordingly, keeping in mind everyone’s comfort. Moreover, some good companies also provide means of entertainment like portable TV sets in a car. Such facilities relax your mind and make your journey peaceful.

Professional services

You need to be aware of the companies that do not provide you with the upfront cost. Check all their rates and pricing policies. Any honest company would be straightforward about their pricing and services. You don’t want to be a victim of any foul play and waste your money. Check for all the details before spending your money.

Find a professional airport transfer service that uses experienced chauffeurs to transport passengers. The chauffeurs must be very polite, well dressed, punctual and knowledgeable about different routes.

Airport transfer services are beneficial in many ways

  • You can easily focus on work in hand instead of struggling with the traffic. Your work can be easily completed while you get to your destination.
  • This service reduces stress. We all are tensed when we have a flight to board. Using this service you can easily reach the airport without any stress.
  • It leaves a good professional image when a business person arrives at the airport with their own designated driver. It portrays a good impact on your clients at the airport.
  • They will also pick you up from your office or home and would drop you safely at the airport, reducing the efforts you put in to walk to the terminal from the car parking lot.

Business Travel Tips!

download (26)When you travel the world around you, it changes the world within you. That was one of my quotes a few years ago from my travel blog when I was blogging the World Tour. It holds true to this day, in my opinion.

I have traveled a lot these past 3 months, in particular, and am often asked how I do it. How do I maintain my energy, my focus, my connections, my health. So here are my best travel tips – try them, you’ll like them.

TIP #1 – MAINTAIN REGULAR SLEEP HABITS. This is normal for me, anyway, whether I am travelling or not. But when I am on the road, it is critical for me to get my sleep. I adjust to the time zone I am in and go with it. I ensure the room is dark, cool, quiet and normally, when at conferences, for example, I always room alone. I know that many people find great joy sharing a room when attending events. That doesn’t work for me because I get enough stimulation during the business days and meetings – I don’t need the additional stimulation of someone in my room wanting to de-brief for the next few hours. It’s my down time so that I can get mentally ready for a restful sleep. That also means limited electronics or TV.

TIP #2 – GET REGULAR EXERCISE. These days, that can mean just counting your steps in the airports – they are so HUGE! It takes a lot of time and a lot of steps to get around. I hired a personal trainer this year and, when I am at home, it makes a huge difference. When I am on the road, I stay accountable, get my exercise and post photos for my trainer so I show evidence of my commitment. At a minimum, I do some Yoga moves which helps with stretching after long plane rides. I bring my exercise DVD with me, too – me and Jillian Roberts – look out world!

TIP #3 – I MAKE GOOD FOOD CHOICES. There’s not really any reason to look at a menu when I travel. I know what I regularly eat for breakfast, lunch and supper – now, remember my 80/20 rule. When I am somewhere special (like in Africa – I WILL have the chocolate croissants… just sayin’!) – I will try different foods. But for normal travel – I stick with my regular food choices – and rarely will I have a drink when I am on the road. It ruins my sleep. I know it. So why do it?

TIP #4: I KEEP MY GRATITUDE JOURNAL. Next to my exercise clothes, my Gratitude Journal is the one thing that goes in the suitcase. It IS when I travel, that I realize and recognize what a blessed life I live and I want to keep my attitude of gratitude.

TIP #5: KEEP A SENSE OF HUMOR. Travel these days can be frustrating, challenging and difficult. There are many things beyond my control. It is so important to keep a sense of humor – and I do that by people watching. I love it! Most people have their face glued to their electronic devices – I just sit, with my latte, and watch. It’s great for keeping stress levels low. (good quality chocolate and a Starbucks latte makes me a happy traveler! – find your happy place, too!)

I have travelled a lot and will continue to do so. My travels tips are not rocket science – they are pretty basic and yet they work. Try them – you’ll like them too.
