Limo Hire vs Train Rides

Scientists are claiming Greenhouse gas emissions are causing global climate change. Governments are trying to reduce the number of cars in major cities and are trying to force people to use alternative means of transportation. Yet the cost of public transport is increasing above inflation.

Passenger groups have criticised the price increases and claim that rail users are already paying high fares. There are also big increases planned for the two dedicated airport services, the Gatwick Express and Heathrow Express, which will both see rises of 7.3%. The rail travel price rise will force travellers to look at other options when commuting between the airport and the city.

In fact, corporate chauffeur companies are expecting a surge in business in 2008 as customers turn their back on rail travel in the wake of a price hike. Rail passengers face an above-inflation rise in fares, with regulated fares including most season tickets going up by an average of 4.8%. Hiring a limousine for airport transfers to Heathrow or Gatwick, airports, is becoming an economical option.

When you hire a limo you get a friendly courteous chauffer who is happy to help you with your luggage. You are picked up at your or home or hotel not train station. Similarly, when arriving at the airport your limo is ready to collect you and your luggage and to take you to your destination of choice, in style. No need to queue for tickets; forget the hustle and bustle, step inside your corporate hired limo, sit down, relax and enjoy the ride.

It is sad, in way, that while Governments are advocating people to be environmentally aware, they are increasing the cost of public transport. The recent increase in the price of train tickets makes corporate limo hire an easy and affordable option, especially for regular travellers.
