If you’re traveling for work, family occasions, or even just a weekend getaway, a stretch limo is a great way to start the trip stress-free. Let’s face it: O’Hare and Midway are hard enough to get to, let alone when you’re on a timer trying to make your flight. However, just because you’re in a hurry, you’re still engaging in a service that requires good etiquette.
Essential Tips for Using a Limo Rental Service for Airport Travel in Chicago
Here are some simple tips to consider when using a limo rental service to travel to and from the airport in Chicago.
PROVIDE A CORRECT NUMBER
Give the Chicago limo rental service the phone number you would like to be reached at while traveling. Unless you’re traveling internationally and have cellular service limitations, the limo driver and company should be able to call you with any questions regarding your booking or specific pick up location. Make sure both your personal and business cell (if relevant) are charged prior to renting your stretch limo and traveling to ensure the limo company is able to reach you with questions or concerns.
KEEP A COPY OF YOUR LIMO RENTAL CONFIRMATION
If you rent a limo in Chicago with M&M’s reservation system, there should be little room for error. However, mistakes do happen throughout the limo rental process and there are sometimes mixups with limo bookings. Print out your limo rental confirmation number and reservation information to avoid any potential confusion.
LEAVE EARLY FOR INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS
If you are leaving the country, make sure you allow enough time in your limo reservation not just for traffic, but the time it will take at each security checkpoint. Checking your bags, validating your passport, and waiting in the security line will most likely take longer than you’d expect. Unlike domestic flights that have multiple terminals, O’Hare only has one terminal that services all international airlines. Inform your limo service or driver which airline you’re taking so they know at which spot to drop you off.
CHECK YOUR FLIGHT SCHEDULE
As much as we don’t want them to, flight schedules change. If your flight is moved up or delayed significantly for some reason, contact M&M so we can work out a better time for your limo rental and reservation. The same goes for cancelled flights: if your flight is cancelled and rescheduled for another day, simply call us to arrange your new limo rental pickup date and time.
MEET YOUR LIMO DRIVER IN BAGGAGE CLAIM
The easiest way for your limo driver and company to get you is to meet you in baggage claim, with the infamous “Mr./Miss/Mrs. Smith” on a whiteboard. Chauffeurs are not allowed past security checkpoints due to regulations made after 9/11. If you would prefer to meet at another location, let your stretch limo driver know. Otherwise, respect that your limo driver will meet you at the baggage claim area as he or she is allowed.
RENT A LIMO WITH THE SAME SERVICE
You will save both time and money by booking your departure and return drives to and from the airport with the same limo company. M&M and its limo rental services have no-surprise pricing to ensure you travel with peace of mind. We provide the same level of service every time, and you can rely on our limo drivers to navigate Chicago with ease. If you are picking up important guests or business associates with the stretch limo, they will immediately feel relaxed and cared for after a long flight. Snacks and drinks can also be housed inside the limo for ultimate comfort.
Airports will never be the most hospitable places, and you’re often under the pressure of time constraints. However, our limo rental services and chauffeurs make an effort to ensure a comfortable traveling experience.
