We’ve all called an Uber at some point in our lives. Perhaps more than any other time, we rely on Uber for trips to the airport, or to get us where we’re going after arriving off a flight. However, although Ubers are a conveniently fast way for traveling to your destination, they may not always offer as much service or dependability for their cost.
How many times has an Uber left you waiting for pick up? How many times has an Uber taken an inconvenient route and left you with a more expensive charge to your credit card? And, while some Uber drivers take care of their vehicles to ensure you’re getting a comfortable ride, what was the inside of their car like?
So whether you’re planning a trip and need to catch a flight, or you’re visiting from out of state, you should consider a luxury concierge driving service. In particular, Swan Limousines & Charters may offer luxury rides to and from the San Diego airport for less or comparable prices than an Uber.
Sometimes, flight delays happen. When these inconveniences occur, your schedule gets pushed back by factors out of your control. And if you’re flying into San Diego for a business event or meeting, every second counts. In addition, Uber drivers are only allowed to wait for riders within a specific time window.
This means that if you’re still getting off your plane after you’ve called in an Uber, your first driver may not be able to wait for you. You’re going to need to signal another driver to come and pick you up. While this small inconvenience may not seem like much, when you’re pressed for time, seconds add up to minutes fast. What’s more, even if an Uber driver does wait for you, you may be charged a per-minute fee if you’re late or even a cancellation charge. Needless to say, if you’re running late to meet with your driver, you may be out both time and money.
However, at Swan, you can reserve a time with one of our professional chauffeurs, and rest assured that you will have a ride when you need one. Our drivers factor in unexpected situations or delays so you won’t have to worry about a driver leaving you without transportation.
Not all Uber drivers offer equal services. Some, in fact, may have less driving experience in San Diego than you might. When your Uber driver has less experience, your ride could take much longer than you anticipate. They also may not always have the training to keep you safe in the event of a high-risk scenario. In the end, you could once again end up paying more for less than a stellar service or experience.
Swan’s drivers, on the other hand, are trained, vetted, and are held to high professional standards. Each of our drivers takes industry driving tests to develop expert-level knowledge about road situations and best driving practices.
A good experience, and your safety, are our number one priority.
If you had the choice between riding in a standard SUV or sedan versus a luxury Cadillac or limousine, what would you choose? Swan’s fleet of vehicles offers an exceptionally comfortable experience no matter where you’re going.
And when you’re going to a particularly important event, wouldn’t you rather show up in style than a regular Uber?
