A frequent task for many Administrative Assistants is to coordinate travel logistics including executive ground transportation. Whether departing/arriving at Bradley International Airport or any of the major metro New York airports (LaGuardia, JFK, Newark or Westchester County), chauffeured car service is a popular way for passengers to reach their destination in Connecticut. Below follow some helpful hints to secure the best ride for your busy executive.
Be In The Know: Some passengers prefer longer plane rides and shorter car rides, whereas others prefer the exact opposite. Time spent in the car, with access to technology, can be more productive than comparable time spent flying. Additionally, the NYC area airports routinely offer more non-stop flights to popular cities, making this a win-win for busy executives. By knowing the final destination in Connecticut, we can help strategize to meet the specific needs and preferences of your traveler(s).
It’s All in The Details! Is your executive in town for a quick meeting, will he/she be presenting, traveling alone or with others? Knowing the answers to these questions will help us guide you to the correct vehicle with comfort and trunk space in mind. We offer a fleet of luxury Executive L Town Cars, SUVs, passenger vans and stretch limos to accommodate any and all of your specific requests. Our fleet vehicles are black; our chauffeurs uniformed in black suits and please know that your executive’s privacy is our top priority.
Full Operating Authority? This may seem like a minor and trivial detail – however, it is an important one, not to be overlooked. There are some VERY specific requirements regarding livery service in Connecticut and only certain companies can provide a full range of transportation services. If arriving at Bradley Airport, and traveling in Connecticut, the vehicle must have an “Intrastate” plate (also known as a CT Livery or “L” plate). Vehicles featuring interstate plates (Connecticut Z plates) cannot legally complete these trips.
Extra Considerations: Look for a company that offers meet & greet service (if that is your passenger’s preference), in-vehicle amenities including Wi-Fi or water, and flight tracking services. The last thing you want is your executive stranded at the airport, waiting on their car after a flight arrives early or with significant delay. Have a special request? Ask! Limousine companies are in the business of customer service and you should feel at ease making requests on behalf of your passengers.
What is Required to Secure a Reservation? The most common information requested by area limousine companies includes number of passengers, arriving/departing flight information, final destination, estimated amount of luggage and any special requests. Additional requests may include passenger cell phone numbers, email address (for receipts & confirmations) and payment information (credit card or billing – depending on the arrangements between your employer and the limousine company).
Handling transportation for your executive need not be a stressful event. Instead, find a trusted provider who will be able to service your needs both domestically and internationally. One phone call can ensure transportation in your home market and far from home.
