A hassle-free and productive corporate travel calls for a lot of thorough planning and careful execution. This includes everything – from planning you’re itinerary and choosing a chauffeur service, to scouting for a suitable hotel accommodation to booking airport transfers. Truth be told, most of these are already well-understood by most travel managers, save for the last bit.
Yes, some business travellers do struggle with booking an airport transfer successfully, either because it merely came as an afterthought or they just didn’t have enough resources to get it done the right way. What does it really take to have a convenient ride from the airport to your hotel? Consider these six tips for a successful airport transfer:
- Check the Rate First
First and foremost, you should ask your chosen chauffeur service provider at how much air transport costs. This Doing so will give you the first glimpse into the type of service you can expect. It also goes without saying that checking the rate is also ideal if want to have an efficient corporate travel budget.
- Communicate Necessary Details to Your Chauffeur
Provide much detail about your travel arrangements as possible to your chauffeur service provider. Which means they should have a good online booking form that includes the following information as a minimum: dates, times, number of passengers, collection and drop off addresses, contact number, Terminal information, flight numbers and any special instructions.
- Confirm Your Departure and Arrival Dates
It’s easy to make a mistake, especially if it’s your first business trip. One of the most common is for travellers to give their date of departure as their arrival date when actually they arrive the following day due to the time difference. Note, though, that this is especially critical in the timely arrival of your airport ride. To avoid conflict with your schedule, be clear with the time and date of your arrival. Keep your chosen chauffeur service posted, too, in case there are adjustments or delays in your scheduled flight.
- Use a Meet and Greet Service
Being met in the terminal means you are not rushed and the driver can assist with your luggage and you able to grab a coffee or use the loo before you set off on the road. Moreover, an insured and highly professional chauffeur of a company knows all about the parking procedures. They will be able to arrive and park much faster and you can easily continue the other procedure after a quick and stress-free flight.
- Enable Your Mobile Service Upon Arrival
A good chauffeur service company will contact you on your arrival back to let you know everything is all set up and this also means you have the driver details. Airports can be extremely busy places and a good proportion of the people there have no idea where things are or how to get to where they want to go. Keep your phone turned on as soon as you land so it will be easy for them to communicate with you if anything comes up.
