Top 5 Considerations for Executives and PAs for Airport Transfers

Top Considerations When Choosing Corporate Travel

Executives and their Personal Assistants (PAs) often have stringent criteria when selecting a corporate travel chauffeur, especially for airport transfers, to maintain schedule integrity, assure safety, and manage their public image. Here are Top 5 Considerations When Choosing Corporate Travel when choosing a specific chauffeur service.

Top 5 Considerations

1. Professionalism is a crucial factor. Executives prefer chauffeurs who are courteous, well-groomed, punctual, and experienced. A chauffeur’s ability to manage time effectively and navigate the optimal routes is essential to avoid any unnecessary delays.
Experience with VIP clients is often preferred, as these chauffeurs know how to manage the specific needs and expectations of high-profile individuals.

2. Reputation and Recommendations of a company can significantly influence the selection process. Executives tend to opt for chauffeur services that are known for their reliability and high-quality service.
Personal recommendations or positive word-of-mouth from colleagues or associates can also play a significant role in choosing a particular service.

3.The quality and condition of the vehicles are crucial. Executives look for chauffeur services that offer modern, clean, and well-maintained vehicles.
The level of comfort and amenities provided in the vehicle, such as Wi-Fi, refreshments, and entertainment options, is also a determining factor for many executives.

4. For executives, especially those in high-profile positions, security and privacy is paramount. Chauffeur services that can guarantee secure, discreet, and confidential services are often preferred.

The assurance of background-checked and well-trained drivers who prioritise the safety and privacy of the passengers is essential.

5. Cost and Value-Added Services. While cost is a consideration, many executives are willing to pay a premium for high-quality service. However, they also look for value-added services like flexibility in scheduling, ease of booking, and prompt customer service.
Transparent and reasonable pricing without hidden costs is valued, and services offering corporate packages or loyalty programs can have an edge.

Professionals and Reputation

Travel Booking for Corporate Executives

Tips for the Best Corporate Assistant

Travel booking for your boss can be tricky, especially when there are a number of destinations to consider. Here are some quick tips for the best corporate assistant.  Even a seasoned personal assistant who is great at their job can make a mistake. 

Mistakes by The Corporate Assistant

I remember my assistant regaling a story of an Executive Assistant (EA) who made the itinerary mistake. This EA worked for a law firm CEO and booked an appointment for her boss to be at a meeting at 1pm down south. Easier  that morning at 11am the CEO was traveling to Scotland!

We totally understand that this could happen to anyone.  Unfortunately for this particular EA it was office gossip – her reputation was tarnished and her colleagues were not as forgiving for the many mishaps that continually took place. 

Even experienced EA’s and personal assistants can easily make a little mistake that can lead to larger problems if their bosses diary doesn’t fit the set schedules. 

At Executive Swift Travel we provide peace of mind when you schedule with us to go anywhere around the UK as part of your bosses business plans. 

We ask questions to help navigate the best experience for you as an executive assistant, and for your boss. 

Here are 4 quick tips that you probably already use, but it doesn’t cost anything to add these to your side board to check against so that you don’t make the mistake of the law firm EA. 

Travel Booking Tips for Assistants

1. Discuss the details of travel as in depth as you can. As you’re aware your boss has a hundred and one things going on in their head. They want you to be their right hand person and think for them when it comes to travelling and reaching their destination. Prior to any meeting away from the office, discuss as much detail as you can about their upcoming travel. From reviewing where they will be prior to travel to arrival at the destination city, the hotel they may want to stay at to meeting their contact. Let’s not forget there could be other travellers involved too. 

2. Ensure there is enough room either side of the travelling for rest. 

Before moving on to their next meeting every boss needs a good rest. It gives them time to regroup everything they have said, agreed or done from their previous meet up, or day. 

3. Discuss whether the travel method fits within the budget?  Using an executive chauffeur in place of other transport can usually be cost effective.  For example, if there’s more than 1 person travelling. Besides, the convenience of being picked up and dropped off is one of the best feelings of being secure and safe. Remember some chauffeur companies may offer a wait and return service. This could be a great way to ensure your boss gets to their next destination on time. 

4. Pack everything they may need. Having a charger for the phone is one of the most forgettable assets. With a busy CEO or executive continually on calls a phone charger is a must. Executive Swift Travel provides in-phone chargers – so we have that covered for you! Your boss can continue to work as Wi-Fi is included in the car. Let us assist you with your bosses itinerary.

There are many amazing personal assistants who play a fantastic role. We hope you find these tips for the best corporate personal assistant useful. If you have any of your own experiences as a Corporate Executive, feel free to drop them in and we will compile and make them available.

Welcome to the United Kingdom!

Taxi to Airport

A Different Airport Taxi

We sometimes get asked how we differ from airport taxis. Although it’s ‘only’ pick up or drop off to and from the airport, there are some aspects to consider. We give you the low down on how we differ from airport taxis. 

Whether you are travelling for business, a quick get away with the family or for pleasure on your own, it is important to have safety in mind. Executive Swift Travel offers you 4 key points to consider when choosing the right airport transfer, which we shall come to in a moment. 

Airport Taxi v Professional Airport Transfer

But first, we look at some differences between the two. When you book a professional airport transfer service such as Executive Swift Travel, you are guaranteed (not including circumstances out of human control, such as ash cloud) to get you to your destination on time. 

Most recently a client we picked up explained how she had booked an airport taxi in advance to find that they sent a text to state they were running late. As there were two pick ups for this one client, both her colleague and she were concerned they would’t get from Cardiff Airport to Heathrow on time. This was causing undue stress and when the driver did arrive, he drove outside the driving limits set causing further distress to our now clients. 

Since then she vowed to use a professional, bookable service and we have had the pleasure of being the businesses preferred choice for airport travel.

Being safe for anyone is paramount. No driver should make any passenger feel unnecessary stress.

Picking up luggage and placing it in the boot of the car can be charged as extra by taxi drivers. With a professional service, you will find that they will do all the extras for you. In our cars, we include refreshments, in-car chargers and more to help make your journey comfortable.

We have a set price and don’t charge on the meter. So if there is a need to divert due to road blocks this is all included in the initial price. Checking our online tracker means that we rarely get into situations where we need to divert. Our drivers are on the ball when it comes to transporting you to the airport to catch your flight. 

Whether you arrive at the airport knowing your way around or, your new to the country, there is no looking for your driver and wondering whether he/she has turned up. Your Executive Swift Travel driver will be waiting to meet and greet you with a personalised placard. 

4 Key Points Choosing Airport Transfer

There are 4 key points to choosing the right airport transfer company:

  • Safety – fully licensed and insured 
  • Knowledge of roads – in case there are issues ahead, such as accidents
  • Professional and friendly drivers – provide a fantastic and comfortable customer service
  • Reliable – they will turn up and take you to your destination

Choosing the right and best airport transfer service is important. We boast of our 5 star independent reviews. To book your airport transfer service to or from Cardiff, contact us today!

5 Reasons To Use Airport Transfer Services

5 Reasons To Use Airport Transfer

Airport transfer service is a great and convenient way to travel to and from the airport, and we give you 5 reasons to use airport transfer services. 

Safety 

Being safe is the flagship of our service to all our clients. Drivers are fully licensed and trained in driving. This is especially important with the fours seasons in one day that we sometimes observe here in the UK. Knowledge of roads and our staff at base keep an eye out on any changes in road structure to inform the driver to take another route. If you’re traveling with children, we will provide car seats for safety and to adhere to health and safety regulations.

Whatever country you may be traveling from, we always encourage travellers to book their ongoing journey in advance with a reputable service.

Convenience 

Whether you’re being picked up or dropped off, the convenience of using an airport shuttle service that is close to the kerb – has it’s own kerb appeal! No more tying to find the car park, looking for the pay and display and dragging the cases or having to catch a bus to the airport terminal. We meet and greet our clients with their personalised placard. Our vehicles have refreshments and in-car chargers and Wi-Fi. 

Time Bound

Tight schedules are what we are used to, particularly when there are meetings and other corporate events. We at Executive Swift Travel continually review the times of flights and are on the look out for any last-minute changes. We use the flight tracking app, so no more waiting around, because we will be there waiting for you. You arrive on time to the airport, or your destination with our knowledgeable road drivers.

Pricing 

Did you know it can be cost effective to hire our airport transfer service when there are a number of passengers? We have the opportunity to drive teams of people to the airport or pick up a couple of executives to take to their corporate meetings. Families find it cost effective than hiring a taxi to their local airport. No hidden costs. You don’t pay toll, parking or any other fees. We are VAT registered, and supply invoices or  we can take card payments – whatever works for you or your business.  

Well Being

Usually the feeling of going or arriving somewhere is an experience we generally do like as travellers. However, there are times when travelling can be due to other circumstances. These can include travelling for bereavement or, because the business deal didn’t quite go as anticipated. Whatever the reason, our drivers at Executive Swift Travel are completely confidential and will provide you with the solace needed. Or of course, can help keep your mind occupied whilst taking you to your destination.  Whatever your mood, it’s a great reason to choose a service where you can just be yourself. 

There are more than just these 5 reasons to use airport transfer services, but we do hope this is helpful. Contact us today to reserve your Executive Swift Travel Service.

One particular member of the Finance team took it upon herself to work 7 days a week and long hours. It was all about wanting to make this business succeed as much as the boss.

After a number of months of reaching their business goals of the now successful business, the owner decided to gift two fully paid holiday tickets. It was well deserved for the relentless hours put in and because the member of staff was away from her family through this period.

His staff member was absolutely surprised and delighted from this unexpected gift.  Sometimes it’s nice to have more than a box of chocolates – not that we wouldn’t appreciated them. There are many ways to give at any time of the year.  Valentines Day can be super special to show whomever you love that you appreciate and want to celebrate with them.
