If you’re flying to a new city, on business or for a weekend getaway, there are several things you can plan and book your airport transfers chauffeurs, to help make the trip easier and hassle-free.
One of those items is your ground transportation, between airport or rail terminus, and your hotel or local accommodation. Book a chauffeur driven car in advance, and you will have one less thing to concern you, once you arrive. This applies whether you are arriving into London Heathrow, Gatwick or London City Airport, or are arriving via Luton or Stansted. And it is equally relevant, if you are arriving into the UK capital by train, perhaps into St Pancras International, Euston, Paddington or Waterloo, and are unfamiliar with the layout of the city.
Booking on e of our Airport Transfers Chauffeurs ready for your arrival makes life simple. Arriving at an unfamiliar international airport can be a stressful experience. There is security and passport control to contend with, as well as the inevitably long wait at the luggage carousel – before deciding which customs channel to negotiate your way through. And entering the arrivals hall can be an assault on the senses, with so many unfamiliar direction signs to read.
At this point, many people take the option of heading to the taxi queue (or line), in the hope that they will enjoy being transported into the city by a friendly local, full of tips and advice. The reality is often far from that, with a poorly maintained vehicle, a driver that either doesn’t want to talk, or struggles to speak the local language, and – at the end of the journey – a fare that can be very expensive, compared with the distance travelled.
Alternatively, some choose to hire a car. The process often adds an hour to your airport departure, and car hire companies famously inflate the initial price, noting that they have excluded vital insurance from the first quote. Once in your car, you have to wrestle with the local road layout and traffic – which may be driving on the wrong side of the road! Then you’ll need to work out the local rules around parking, which can be an expensive extra.
Contrast that with the experience of a pre-booked chauffeur driven car. Your driver will arrange where to meet you, and can even help with getting your luggage to the car. Once in the vehicle, you can sit back and relax, as your driver finds their way through the city traffic, and delivers you in style to your destination, whether that’s a hotel, or a company office for a business meeting.
If you are planning a trip outbound from the UK, to another world city such as New York or Paris, then it is also worth asking us here at AA Chauffeurs if we can assist you in pre-booking a chauffeur driven car for your arrival.
