There are few places in the modern world that have become both as integral and as infuriating as the airport. A wonder of the technological age, airports have become the hub of travel, a necessary destination for just about anyone going somewhere far, far away, or on their way back. It's a fantastic place filled with giant metal tubes that turn what was once months of toil and trekking into a few hours of mild annoyance.
In the 21st century, even a mild annoyance is enough to ruin a busy day. For many, going to the airport is on par with going to the dentist. Long lines at check in, strangers going through the clothes in your luggage – not to mention the clothes you're still wearing, delays, gate changes, obnoxious co-passengers, waiting forever to find out your bags were put on the conveyer belt last. It can be stressful to say the least.
And the traffic. Especially in a city like Chicago, there's no such thing as a slow day at the airport. Literally thousands of people that don't know which gates are where and what to do with their car when they get there, usually with friends and family too flustered to help navigate it all. Whether you're coming or going, the biggest headache is often in dealing with what's outside the building.
Cut out every last bit of the hassle that normally occurs outside the airport by hiring a limousine service to do the worrying instead. It might sound luxurious, but that's because it is – in a good way. The world has come a long way, and in the 21st century, it's possible to be luxurious without being wasteful about it. There are a few reasons why a traveler may prefer a limo.
We're always busy when we're on our way to the airport. It's just before the flight is ready to leave that all the last minute details need to be taken care of. There's a reason they're called “last minute,” after all. So why would we want to deal with driving and parking and car storage, or call for a cab with a meter slowly chipping away at our bank account?
A limo service is designed for customer service, and that service extends beyond just driving. The back of a limo is clean, quiet and spacious, and so it's the perfect place to go through a bag, make phone calls, or even check email. Limo drivers know where all the gates are and how to get there on time, so it's just a matter of climbing in and getting comfortable.
The privacy afforded by going to the airport in a limo can't be understated. All too often, trips to the airport are made by family or friends that aren't getting on the plane. A limousine is a good place to have a little bit more time together without someone having to focus on driving or other distractions.
Travelers don't always travel alone, and a limo service is even more useful when it comes to groups. They're big enough to carry as many passengers as a van, with the added benefit of actually being comfortable. With a limo, there's nobody riding through airport traffic with a suitcase on their lap.
Not only that, but it's just more fun to go to the airport in a limo, and that's important when it comes to a group trip. Nobody wants to get on the plane grouchy and ready for a nap. It's essential to start a trip out positive, and nothing will get the party started like showing up to the first stop in style.
A limo service also replaces carpooling. A driver can stop by any number of locations on the way to the airport to pick up any number of people. The obvious bonus is that if someone is taking longer than necessary to pack their bags, the people waiting impatiently will be less impatient because they have drinks, music and a great atmosphere to say mean things about the jerk holding everyone up.
Every time a person gets on a plane at an airport, they have to get off that plane at another airport. That is, of course, after they sit in one spot for entirely too long. There's absolutely nothing worse than returning from a successful business trip or a fantastic holiday, only to deal with finding a taxi or remembering where the car was way back when. There's absolutely nothing better than returning from a successful business trip or a fantastic holiday and find a luxurious, well-stocked, climate-controlled limousine with a courteous, professional driver ready to take you wherever you need to go.
A limo is the best of all worlds, because it combines convenience with class to create the perfect experience. Instead of leaving the airport and hunting for a car, there's someone waiting at the gate to be a guide. The inside of the car is long enough to stretch out completely, and it's just the place to call everyone and let them know you made it back safely.
Heading off on an adventure or triumphantly returning from one, hiring a limo to make the journey is an excellent way to make it happen. It's as convenient and professional as an airport car service can get, with the added benefit of being both stylish and opulent. A journey for whatever reason is always a big deal, and what better way to mark the occasion than with a limousine? Really, until we get the jet packs we were promised, the limo is still the best way to ride into the future.
