14 Aug Debunking 3 Common Myths About Corporate Transportation Services
When it comes to corporate transportation services, many people assume that unlike the wedding transportation industry, prices and policies remain relatively consistent throughout the year. However, corporate transportation is considered a separate entity by most limo services, and it’s important to understand pricing guidelines ahead of time so you aren’t caught off guard with unexpected fees. Here are some of the most common myths about corporate transportation prices.
1. MYTH: You start accruing fees as soon as your chauffeur leaves the garage to pick you up.
This may be a shady tactic used by less-than-reputable transportation services, but honest companies would never dream of using such a sketchy tactic to increase profits. There is one situation where this may be applicable and acceptable, however — if your driver is driving an exceptionally long distance to accommodate your transportation needs, then this fee may be appropriate. Usually, though, you won’t start accruing fees until the moment you get into the vehicle itself.
2. MYTH: Tips and gas fees are always included in the price.
If you reserve a corporate transportation service, you should never expect these expenses to be included in the price. Just like sitting down to a meal at a fancy restaurant, tips aren’t included in the initial price. To be safe, it’s always a good idea to ask about these measures That being said, you should keep in mind that the most professional and reputable companies will never keep additional fees and charges hidden from you.
3. MYTH: Weddings transportation services vary in cost throughout the year, but corporate transportation pricing remains the same.
This, again, is a huge misconception. The fact is, approximately 50% of limousine service is provided for business and corporate customers during the week, which means company policies are likely to be exactly the same, or at least very similar, for both wedding and corporate transportation services alike. The high traffic limo season is generally from April to October, so keep this in mind when planning corporate events that require transportation.
Ultimately, these are just a few misconceptions to be aware of if you’re planning the transportation for an upcoming corporate event. For more information about limo services, contact Absolute Comfort Limo.
