IT IS NO SECRET;   A LUXURY CAR SERVICE COSTS MORE THAN A NORMAL DRIVER. HERE IN NYC, A CHAUFFEUR IS WORTH MORE THAN A DRIVER.   AT LUXURY RIDE, WE PROVIDE AN EXPERIENCE, NOT JUST A CAR RIDE.   SO WHAT IS THE REAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A "CHAUFFEUR" AND THE OTHER DRIVERS?    EXPERIENCE   First of all, EXPERIENCE is a major key. Luxury Ride has spent time looking for our "Model" Chauffeur. We do not rush hiring - we want to make sure the Chauffeur we are enlisting is experienced. Especially relevant in NYC, it is important that your vendor knows the ins-and-outs. Knows where to go, generally, without having to GPS. Knowing backroads and alternate routes faster than the Navigational System. Knowing how to treat a passenger.   Consequently, our quarrel with taxis and companies such as Uber is that; probably, anyone can become a driver. Our man Tony who worked five years in the Finance Department of a big Corporation decided he wants...

4 Staging Tips for The High-Scale Events in NYC

  |   Event Planning, Hospitality Industry   |   No comment

EVENT PLANNING STRIVES FOR AN IMAGE OF SEAMLESS FINESSE. SMOOTH TRANSPORTATION IS A MUST TO ACHIEVE THIS - AND A MUST IN THE NYC NJ SCENE.   LUXURY RIDE ENJOYS WORKING WITH PEOPLE IN NYC OR NJ IN THE EVENT PLANNING OR TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY. WE LIKE SHARING OUR EXPERIENCE.   YVONNE CHOURINARD, FOUNDER OF PATAGONIA, ONCE SAID (PARAPHRASED), "IF YOU FIGURED OUT SOMETHING THAT WORKS, SHARE IT"  The Event Planning Industry, along with the Transportation Industry, is extremely competitive. Behind the scenes conflict are a norm, and colleagues can be shady. Luxury Ride promotes teamwork - and with that comes the sharing of knowledge. We understand how crazy things can get, and how far off the ACTUAL can stray from the PLAN. We propose a solution: craft your 10/10 plan in such a way that leaves room for changes. Map out the general tasks and be sure to achieve such; execution of the tasks are never static and must...

Surviving JFK Terminal 4

  |   Event Planning, Executive Transportation, Hospitality Industry   |   No comment

 Surviving JFK Terminal 4 “T4”  For those of you who travel, especially internationally, you know what we mean by “Surviving JFK Terminal 4”. Although T4 is a beautiful piece of architecture, it is still an Airport that transports billions of people annually – and because it is an airport, there will always be an issue and/or setback of some level of magnitude.   There is no larger setback than the multiple entrances/exits to Terminal 4 at JFK International.   After riding a 10+ hour international flight into the US, you are most likely tired – and most likely have a driver of some sort waiting to pick you up. When arriving to the terminal, it is only natural to desire a seamless and easy pick-up from your driver. Yet, due to the multiple entrances/exits, “seamless” seems unattainable.   There are two things that Executives desire when traveling: Punctuality Minimum-stress levels when concerning transportation from Point A to Point...
