Business trips are a great opportunity to meet new clients, expand your network and build business relationships. The only problem is that they can be stressful for everyone involved.
Why? Because the time spent in airports, on planes, or waiting for transportation at your destination takes up precious time you could spend networking. Also, if you’re traveling with colleagues or employees it’s likely that some of them will need help carrying their bags around, which disrupts the schedule even more.
An airport VIP chauffeur service like Assist-ant offers a solution to all these problems by providing an experienced professional driver who will pick you up from any airport and drive you directly to your meeting location while taking care of all luggage handling issues along the way.
This means no delays due to traffic jams, no one trying to figure out how many miles are left until arriving at the hotel, and most importantly – no one having trouble lifting heavy suitcases into car trunks! You’ll arrive at your destination fully refreshed and ready to take on the day’s challenges.
If you’re looking for an even more relaxing and luxurious experience, Assist-ant can also arrange for a private car and driver to escort you between meetings or help you get around town during your stay. You’ll never have to worry about finding a taxi or navigating public transportation again!
A VIP chauffeur service like Assist-ant is the perfect way to make your next business trip a breeze. Here are some helpful FAQs about VIP chauffeur-assisted travel:
VIP Chauffeur FAQs
What kind of cars is available for VIP Chauffeur services?
VIP service typically includes a luxury sedan such as a Mercedes S-Class or Audi A8L. Limousines and SUVs may also be available by request. We can provide you with specific car options upon request.
What is the difference between a chauffeur and a driver?
Professional drivers are those who can drive as part of their job, but whose primary responsibilities do not include driving clients. Individuals who provide VIP Chauffeur services typically work for one company, sometimes exclusively or primarily to transport clients. Chauffeurs often work for limo companies or other transportation service providers.
Do I need to tip my VIP Chauffeur?
Customary gratuity is typically 15-20% of the cost of the trip. However, you should always check with your hired car company if unsure whether tipping is expected or not. Tips are usually given at end of the trip. Just like in restaurants our chauffeurs also appreciate tips even though it’s already included in the price of the service.
How are my VIP contracts handled?
VIP driver contracts are typically provided when you book your trip, but it’s possible to ask for them prior to booking if necessary. Contracts include information about where and when pick-ups should be made, and may also include a map of the meeting location.
If clients need special assistance (such as help with luggage), this can also be indicated on the contract.
Can I bring extra people along in my hire car? How much does that cost?
Booking additional seats are possible, although it varies depending on availability and other factors such as traffic conditions at the time of travel. Seat prices vary depending on seat type (e.g., premium, limo, SUV), so it’s best to contact us with your exact requirements so we can provide you with a quotation.
We accept all major credit cards, wire transfers, and PayPal as payment methods (and cash for last-minute bookings).
Do you also provide car service within city limits?
Yes, Assist-ant provides airport pick-ups as well as drop-offs within city limits. We can also arrange for a car service to take you between meetings or help you explore the city during your stay. Pricing and availability may vary depending on the city, so please contact us for more information.
What is included in the price? Is there an extra charge for services?
The price of VIP Chauffeur services includes car rental and an experienced chauffeur. Mileage is charged as a separate item, but our rates are all very reasonable. Of course, there may also be charges for additional services such as tolls, parking fees, or other incidental expenses which you can discuss directly with your driver at any time during your trip.
How much luggage can my driver help me with?
Your driver will be happy to help you with any luggage that you have. In most cases, we can accommodate up to two large suitcases and one carry-on bag per person. If you have more luggage than this, please let us know in advance and we will do our best to arrange for additional assistance.
Can my driver help me get around town during my stay?
Yes, your driver can be a valuable resource for getting to know the local area and for arranging activities and reservations. Just let him or her know what you’re interested in and they will take care of the rest.
What happens if I am running late for my trip?
If you will be more than 15 minutes late, please give your driver a call. He or she will do their best to stay on schedule but sometimes unanticipated delays are unavoidable. If it looks like you won’t arrive at your destination by the time that was originally planned, it’s advisable to simply let us know and we’ll reschedule accordingly.
Please note that there is typically a fee for missed trips, subject to additional charges such as scheduling fees or overtime charges.
How accurate is Assist-ant in updating schedules with our chauffeurs?
We aim to provide clients with up-to-the-minute updates of departure times and locations on every trip booked through Assist-ant. However, unforeseen circumstances such as heavy traffic or construction can occasionally cause delays.
We always recommend that clients arrive at their pickup location a few minutes early to avoid any unexpected problems.
Can I ask the chauffeur to go to certain places that are not scheduled?
Of course. All of our chauffeurs are happy to go wherever you need them to, as long as they can reach your destination safely and in a timely manner. Just let us know when booking and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
Can I cancel my VIP Chauffeur reservation?
Yes, you can cancel a VIP Chauffeur reservation at any time as long as it is more than 48 hours before your scheduled pickup time. Cancellations that are made less than 48 hours before the scheduled pickup time will incur a fee, which will be charged to the credit card on file. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
How do I confirm my reservation? How can I be sure that Assist-ant will not charge me for any fees (i.e. missed trips)?
You can confirm your reservation 24 hours before your scheduled time by visiting www.assist-ant.

Our priority is for all clients, both new and returning, to have a safe and pleasant experience with our service. After every reservation is made with Assist-ant, our clients will receive an email from us that includes contact information for their chauffeur along with the estimated time of arrival and vehicle information (including color and make/model).
