Or have you used one? If so what company did you go with and were you happy with the service.
I need to hire one for my Mom and Dad who are flying in and I want to make sure they don't get stuck at the airport at 8:30 at night. Thanks
Well if we find a good one I will let you know in case you ever need it :DOriginally Posted by ukwdwnut, post: 258163
I know they could have used the DME for free, but I was worried about how long it would take that late at night and them being tired. Dh and I and the kids are driving down, so we will all have a car once we get there, we just needed a way to get from the airport to the resort.
I have used a town car service, in fact, several times, but to be honest, I can't remember the name of the service. It's been a while. I'll have to actively think about it.
Hmmmm, you know, I think it was Tiffany Towncar Service.
My only thing about Quicksilver is the atrocious behaviour towards "international arrivals" where they add an enforced gratuity on to the journey. Tips should be optional not enforced and certainly not enforced against one particular group of people.Originally Posted by MystikPiglit, post: 258194
I swapped from Quicksilver for that reason and won't be going back whilst they insist on the offensive policy.
That's not to take away from MistikPiglit's review though just to say that for international customers, they're treating us differently and discriminating against us and I'm not going to support that.
We thought their prices were very reasonable. I priced up a few companies before booking and, taking everything into account, there was little difference in cost. The gratuity was no more than we would have given anyway. Maybe we are just over-generous folk. :)Originally Posted by Keith, post: 258210
It's really not that though the point is international arrivals are hit with an extra enforced tip whilst other people taking the same service arent? why discriminate? Plus a tip should be optional not enforced.Originally Posted by MystikPiglit, post: 258214
When I talked to them about this they said very clearly that they expected people would tip MORE again if the service was good.
Sorry but I won't support that attitude which I think is wrong on every level.
It's simple. Charge what you want to charge and then a tip should be optional to the driver directly based on what we feel the service has been.
I certainly wont use them whilst they're discriminating against me as an international arrival and I make very sure to tell everyone else I know who's going out not to support that practice either
