Airport Transportation Services

  |   in Blog  |   Comments (0)

Traveling can sometimes be an overwhelming experience. Luckily there are several tips that can make your trip fun and enjoyable while making sure you are punctual, safe and prepared.

After you have booked your flight on one of many airlines you can begin planning for all the details that must fall into place to have a successful trip. An important additional reservation that is sometimes left to the last minute is airport transportation. If you would like door-to-door service in order to skip the hassles of parking it’s important to schedule your airport transportation services in advance.  Some find that utilizing a luxury car service for their airport transportation needs, is often more enjoyable than using a taxi. You may be surprised that the price is very comparable, yet you get a lot more for your money!

Be sure to schedule your luxury transportation with plenty of time to get through the airport and be at your gate with time to spare. Arriving at the airport 2 hours in advance of your flight is always a good starting point. This allows for the unexpected to not ruin your travel plans or escalate your nerves prior to leaving town.

Packing is an essential part of all traveling. Many travelers opt to not check a bag and instead utilize a carry on.  A great way to reduce the space your clothes will need is to roll each piece individually. You can fit several more pieces of clothing in your suitcase using this method! Also make sure you pack your liquids in 3 oz plastic bottles and place them in a plastic zip lock bag. This will allow the security at the airport to do their job quicker and more efficiently. To accommodate those travelers carrying luggage for extended stays, families, group travel it is very convenient to use Lux Limo’s escalade.   Last, but not least, if you have a common colored bag, such as black, you should always mark your luggage with an easy to identify tag so you can quickly see them when mixed among others.

Another option is to purchase a more unique piece that will catch your eye and detour strangers from accidentally grabbing your bag instead of theirs at the airport.  Here at Lux Limo we believe while tips may help encourage a stress free trip there is nothing better than the old adage…Practice makes perfect!  Through your personal travels you’ll surely find what works well and can advance to the status of a professional traveler in no time!

Special Event Transportation

  |   in Blog  |   Comments (0)

Everyone knows that an experience can be formed when several details from a particular activity come together and form a memory. While a company offering you a service may control most of your experience your willingness to participate as well as your attitude will certainly change the outcome. Without participation from all parties involved your experience may not live up to what you were expecting. Special requests can offer the service you are using an opportunity to shine as well as satisfy your quest for a happy experience.

For example, many options are available when needing to go from one point to another when a longer than walking distance is at hand. Special events, errands, or travel arrangements to the airport all require you choose a mode of transportation. You could drive yourself, board a bus, call a taxi, or reserve luxury transportation just to name a few. Depending on which option you choose your experience will certainly be very different.

You may think that driving yourself may have a full list of advantages, but you might run into a stressful situation involving traffic or worse…an accident! Maps, insurance, and frazzled nerves can flood into your experience very quickly. You can clearly see how these details will affect your experience. Fortunately, you control your special requests in this situation which can help with making you as comfortable or prepared as possible although you must fulfill them yourself.

Boarding a bus or shuttle transportation is another great way to have an experience you are happy with while traveling but will also involve details that may or may not allow you to enjoy yourself. This choice has the least possibility of special request options but the details can still prove to be very positive. The lack of worry regarding traffic, accidents being your fault or not, and/or missed texts should prove to be a stress-free experience for you. Not to mention…the environmentally friendly choice you made at the beginning is inevitably paying the experience forward to many other people around you!

The other transportation choices I mentioned above include taxi cars as well as luxury car service. You can get the best of both worlds utilizing these modes of transportation. They offer the ease of not paying attention to the surrounding traffic but still give you a sense of control when it comes to getting where you need to be. Through a bit of research you will find that Limousine companies in Denver, CO often offer sedans and SUV’s as well as limousines when booking a reservation. This is common in most urban areas. While a taxi service does not normally allow for special request a limousine service gladly will!

When booking your next special event transportation consider utilizing a car service that allows for special requests. Your favorite drink, a newspaper, chocolate covered strawberries if you are romancing your special someone, or even your favorite pack of gum could be available for you upon pick up encouraging a wonderful experience to unfold before you.

Wedding planners, Luxury wedding car service providers, Chefs, Bakers, Florist, and even Childcare professionals can assist in making your special day hassle free and affordable.

Most wedding planning begins with the dreaded budget. Without a budget it can be difficult to decide on location options, invitations, decorations, what will be served and even transportation services. Having a wish list to map out your budget can be helpful in making sure your desires are met. If you’ve always dreamed of being whisked away to your honeymoon in a stretch limousine there is no reason it can’t happen!

Choosing to scale back on flowers or re-utilizing décor from the ceremony at the reception are all great options to free up additional funds. Balancing these different area are key to successfully designing your dream wedding.

With the average wedding costing around $27,000 it’s important to allocate your budget correctly. A good base to start your budget off with is as follows…

  • Reception & Rentals (catering, venue, etc.) – 40%
  • Photography/Videography – 10%
  • Wedding Planner – 10%
  • Wedding Attire – 8%
  • Flowers & Decorations – 7%
  • Music & Entertainment – 7%
  • Wedding Rings – 4%
  • Stationary – 3%
  • Gifts – 3%
  • Luxury Transportation – 3%
  • Wedding Cake – 2%
  • Ceremony & Legalities – 2%
  • Day of Preparation (Hair & Make-up) – 1%

Depending on your desires these percentages are sure to change. Take care to keep your total percentage at 100% during the process. If you extend beyond 100% you’ll need to do some negotiating in certain areas. This is where professionals in the industry can offer tips in reducing costs. A Wedding Planner can do wonders for your design and can easily save far beyond the cost of hiring them. Their relationships with professionals in your community will bring discounts that would have not been offered otherwise. It’s very common to see a 10% discount from limousine companies or a 15% discount from a stationary store. These discounts are sometimes offered as incentives for the wedding planner to send business their way or can be passed along to the client as a discount. Be sure to find out how your wedding planner rewards you for using their services.

While the months leading up to your big day can be stressful and full of decisions remember to keep your eye on the real reason you are celebrating. Your friends and family will rarely remember every detail you spent hours anguishing over but they will always remember the loving, beautiful couple that shared their special day with them!
