While many people see a Long Island Limousine service as a luxury reserved for the wealthy, others are embracing the concept that a Long Island limo can be both cost effective and practical. There are many occasions where a limo makes more sense than other forms of transportation. Here are five:
1. Airport Transportation
With the heightened security measures at airports across the country and especially at New York airports it’s far too much of a hassle to drive yourself to the airport. When you have to park and drag your luggage to a shuttle and into the airport, it can add another hour to the time you have to allow for pre-boarding. Whether you’re looking for JFK airport transportation, or need a ride to LaGuardia or Newark, a limo service can be just the ticket. You can go in style in a stretch limo, or opt for the more practical sedan. If the whole family is heading to the airport, a limo in New York can be a seven-passenger van or even a 19-passenger sprinter limo bus.
A stretch limousine on Long Island may be standard for the bride and groom, but a limo service can also be a godsend for the bridal party and even for out of town guests. The best limo companies have worry-free wedding packages and coordinators who can ensure that everyone will get to the church (or synagogue or mosque) on time and then to the reception and back to their hotels.
If you’re visiting the Big Apple and want to take in the sights, or stay on Long Island and enjoy our wineries, a limousine service can show either to you in style. Depending on the number in your party, you can use a sedan, a limo, a sprinter van, or a bus to enjoy all that New York has to offer. You can create your own itinerary, and rest assured that the driver will double as a professional tour guide. The best services provide complimentary refreshments and snacks, and even have drivers who can give tours in languages other than English.
4. Sporting Events
When you and your buddies are going to a game, the last thing you need is that hassle of driving and parking at the event. Plus, if you want to knock back a few beers, you certainly don’t want to be behind the wheel after the game. A Long Island limousine can take you to Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden, or Flushing Meadows and back again in style.
5. Business Meetings
Whether you’re in town for business, or are hosting out-of-town colleagues or potential clients, a limousine service can help ensure that attendees will get to your meetings on time. A good limo service has experienced drivers who are knowledgeable, discreet, and familiar with the needs of the business traveler.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, but rest assured that a Long Island, New York limousine service isn’t only for special occasions or the wealthy. There are many occasions when a car service or limo can take the hassle out of your transportation.
Despite the emergence of app based driving services such as Lyft and Uber, there is still a sizable market for limousine companies. Limos Long Island, located at 838 Old Country Rd. in Westbury, is owned by three people who have decades of Experience in the business: Dayna Molinelli of West Babylon, Joseph Lavin of Patchogue and Charles Sykora of Baldwin.
Happy New Year to All!
We hope you enjoyed the holiday season with your family and friends and wish you much happiness in the new year.
Dedicated to Serving You
Limos Long Island is committed to offering you the quality you expect and deserve. We have found a way to minimize any price increases while still achieving the high level of service you deserve.
Unfortunately, due to multiple factors, including the rising cost of industry-wide insurance rates, the recent minimum wage increase, and having to acquire 3rd party EPLI insurance due to Uber sexual harassment claims, we have been forced to slightly increase our rates for the first time in over a year.
These increases allow us to continue to provide you with safe, maintained vehicles, and keep our drivers in-house as opposed to using sub-contracted drivers. To learn more about the specifics of our rate increases, please visit our website here.
This letter serves to advise you that there will be an increase of $10 to our flat SUV flat rates, and a $5-$10 increase on Suffolk zones.
Hourly rates for all vehicles will be increased by $4.
During times of inclement weather there will be a $50 surcharge for sedans and $75 for SUV’s for all point to point services.
Our additional stop rates will slightly increase depending on the location of the stop. This is necessary to cover driver costs for waiting, slower travel, and additional traffic, which helps us to ensure your safety.
Honoring Current Rates thru January 15, 2020
It is important to note that ALL reservations made before 1/15/2020 will be honored with the current price, so we highly encourage you to order soon to take advantage of this.
Limos Long Island greatly appreciates your continued business and support through this time of growth and change. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding this price increase, please do not hesitate to reach out. Our team is more than happy to discuss this situation with you on an individual basis.
