Tips For a Successful Airport Transfer

Airport transportation from Petaluma does not have to be hectic or complicated. Sadly, in many cases, people who hire a cab for airport transportation have a bad experience. Here are some tips for planning a perfect ride from your terminal to your destination.


Get Multiple Quotes


Get quotes from a variety of car rental and taxi companies. Before booking your airport transfers, remember to enquire whether the quoted price includes parking, waiting charges, and premiums (such as additional night charge). Confirm that the price quoted is the price you pay and that there are no hidden fees.


Make Sure Your Mobile Phone is Turned On


Your provider may try to contact you after you land or share driver and vehicle details. To avoid confusion and ensuing chaos, remember to turn on your phone after deboarding. Turning your phone on after landing will also ensure that you are accessible on call, should there be any need.


Book Online


To avoid inconvenience, pre-book your ride online. Make sure you receive a booking confirmation. If anything goes wrong, you will have a record of the booking. The confirmation must include all the details related to the transfer. Make reservations in advance. If you make a last-minute booking, you may have to pay extra and will have hardly any time to research and narrow your options.


Provide Important Information


Remember to provide all relevant information such as your full name, mobile number, terminal information, flight number (so that your chauffeur will be able to find out if there is any delay, and wait for you), number of passengers, and pick up location/drop point requested by the provider at the time of booking a ride. Remember to provide special instructions, if any.


Use a Meet and Greet Service


Meet your driver in the terminal. While your chauffeur takes care of your luggage, you can make a quick visit to the restroom or grab a quick bite or coffee from your favorite restaurant. A professional chauffeur knows all about the parking procedures. They will arrive on time and park the car, while you complete the formalities.


Confirm Your Travel Plan


If you are returning back from a region that falls in a different time zone, be very careful when booking a cab. It’s easy to get confused about the arrival date due to different time zones. Double-check your dates in advance and keep your provider posted, in case there are any delays or adjustments.
