When people think of their ride going to and from the airport, the last option they would consider is taking a limo. Often, people associate limousines with VIPS and rock or film stars, and that renting limos is too pricey.
On the contrary, the price of limousine rental can even be lower than a cab’s fare. Also, almost anyone can rent a limo for different purposes and occasions.
If you are thinking of getting EWR airport service, here are a few key things that you need to know beforehand.
If you are going to the airport, the limo will pick you up at your home at least 15 minutes before the time you arranged for your pickup. The chauffeur will introduce himself and offer help in carrying your bags. After your items have been loaded in the car and you are onboard, the driver will confirm your destination and ask if you have a preferred route. Once you reach the airport, the chauffeur will unload your bags and even call a skycap for you.
If you are coming from the airport, the chauffeur will wait for you at the baggage claim area, carrying a display sign with your name written on it. After introducing himself, he will come with you to the baggage carousel to help you with your bags. You can also arrange for the driver to wait for you at the curb while you pick up and carry your belongings. Once your bags have been loaded and you are onboard the car, the driver will confirm your destination and drive off.
If it is your first time to ride a limousine to or from the airport, here are a few other important things to remember.
Provide your contact information
This will allow the driver to contact you should you miss one another in the terminal. You should make sure that your phone is on.
The chauffeur will pick you up at the baggage claim
Due to changes in airport security, drivers are only allowed to wait for their passengers in the baggage claim area. Alternatively, you can arrange for the driver to pick you up at the curb, which can be much faster.
Make sure you have the confirmation number
You will use the confirmation number if the limousine does not arrive.
Whether you are taking a domestic or international flight, it is always a good idea to have yourself picked up from your home at the earliest possible time to avoid hassles and long lines.
