On a recent visit to New York I was lucky enough to utilize the services of our preferred chauffeur supplier in the US: Tristar. This was a quick two day trip for us and on this occasion we didn't require the use of rental car. Having never used one of our chauffeur suppliers in the United States before and I was excited to see how the experience compared to service in Europe.
My colleague and I had a quick flight from Portland, Maine to LaGuardia and we arrived later in the evening. Once we came into the arrivals hall our driver was waiting with name placard in hand. He was well attired and polite and quickly took our luggage and whisked us away to a nearby Lincoln Town Car. I'm sure it depends on the airport, but it was only a two minute walk for us. The car itself was pristine inside and out and very spacious on the inside.
The driver asked us if we had a preference for music but kept conversation to a minimum. Traffic was light, but it still seemed to be much quicker than any public transport option I have used in the past. It was a quick fifteen minute ride to the Radisson in midtown and the whole experience was seamless and enjoyable.
A certain degree of convenience, professionalism, and luxury is expected from a chauffeur service and Tristar and their representative exceeded all of our expectations. It was a great couple of days in the Big Apple and it was only improved upon by Tristar's terrific service.
