The Benefits of Having a Long-Term Arrangement With Your Executive Transport Provider24 Feb 2020
Talk to any leading executive transport provider, and it won’t be long before they begin pitching the benefits of their fast, flexible approach.
As eager to please as they are to succeed, most transport services will be happy to take on those short-notice, ad-hoc journeys. If your corporate travel needs are somewhat infrequent, these occasional quick trips may be where your relationship with your executive chauffeur service begins and ends.
For others, however, the benefits of developing that relationship into something more long-term can’t be overstated.
Whether you need the convenience and comfort of chauffeur-driven corporate transport for those regular board meetings, or whether you’re aiming to take corporate hospitality to the next level for your most distinguished VIPs, here’s just a few reasons why opening up a corporate account with your travel provider may be the smartest move you make this year.
1. Priority Booking
Make no mistake about it, as a company with regular transport requirements. You are exactly the kind of client any good executive travel provider will be looking to attract. As such, you can pretty much guarantee that they’ll be delighted to make your account their top priority.
That means you’ll typically have the first pick of your favourite world-class executive cars and priority booking as standard.
2. Prompt, Professional Chauffeurs
As a top executive, everything you do speaks volumes about your reputation and the reputation of your company.
Working an industry driven by professional presentation, few businesses understand this better than your executive chauffeur service.
As such, you can be sure that not only will the car you travel in to be maintained to the very highest level, but that your dedicated driver will also adhere to the very strictest standards.
Immaculately attired and impeccably polite, your chauffeur’s job is to do much more than get you where you’re going on time. They’re there to deliver exceptional service, discretion and professionalism from beginning to end.
3. Efficient Payments
Booking on an ad-hoc basis may have its benefits, but it also creates a headache for your accounts payable team when they have to deal with separate invoices for every journey.
With a long-term arrangement, you receive a single, itemised invoice sent once a month (or on a more frequent basis if you prefer) on the same date, helping you make more efficient payments.
4. Personal Service
The longer you work with the same chauffeur service, the more they get to know about you, your company, and your requirements.
As such, they can better tailor what we do to meet those requirements without you having to tell us.
Always prefer a copy of the Financial Times in your favourite Mercedes model for those regular airport transfers? Your service provider will remember that and make sure it’s always ready.
Prefer to take the scenic route on your journey to the monthly shareholders’ meeting so that you can rest, relax, or take care of last-minute paperwork? They’ll remember that too and take care of it without you having to remind them.
5. A Dedicated Account Manager
Fed up of being passed from person to person as you try to make a booking, ask for special requests and settle an invoice?
Who could blame you?
Dealing with some companies can often feel like a complicated, frustrating and time-consuming process, but most executive transport providers go out of their way to eliminate all that by assigning you your dedicated account manager.
More often than not, corporate clients will have a direct line number for their account manager, avoiding the switchboard altogether and having a single point of contact for all of your needs.
6. Access to a Range of Chauffeur Services
Getting you safely from A to B is only a tiny fraction of what a corporate transport service can offer your business.
With the need to provide added value fueling the majority of modern businesses, most travel providers have diversified their offering to include additional services such as:
