Meeting & Event Planning
SmartCars has decades of experience in seamless transportation for meetings and events for groups of 10 to 500. This includes airport greeting and the coordination of individuals and groups with their appropriately-sized vehicles. With the use of GEO-Fencing (a GPS attribute) we are able to communicate with the client the impending arrival of a group at their destination. Thus seamless coordination and robust communication between all parties involved is one of our strong suits. Besides airport transportation we can provide local transport between restaurants and events. In addition to airport services we “offer transportation between the Event site/hotel venue and all desired restaurants and local points of interest.
Hourly service is also known as “chartered” or “as directed”. One way it differs from “transfers” is that the client first determines the pickup time and location and then the approximate number of hours they will “keep” the vehicle. During this period of time you may choose to have the chauffeur and vehicle wait for you at one location or you may choose to be transported place to place as in a shopping spree or vendor review. The chauffeur in all cases will be prepared in advance for all of the specific needs you have communicated during the reservation placement process. This may include obtaining food, drinks or other needed items or learning all relevant routes in advance of a long excursion. Irrespective of your needs, our professional chauffeurs are adept at everything from navigating or parking in challenging locations to communicating changes in your upcoming flight.
With over 500 affiliates throughout the US and worldwide, our clients now have the ease of calling just one number for all of their transportation needs “anywhere in the World”! We have already completed the rigorous and time consuming work on your behalf. All of our affiliates have been fully vetted and thus reflect the same high quality standards found here in Chicago; agreed upon insurance levels, licensing requirements, Chauffeur background checks, professional capabilities and appropriate dress codes and expected vehicle type and age. SmartCars stands behind your experience with its affiliates and is only one call away for both the positive feedback and for handling any issues that may arise.
SmartCars’ sophisticated systems connect in real time to flight information for private carriers. Our professional chauffeurs will arrive in advance of expected flight arrival times at the FBO to avoid any unexpected waiting. By the time you land, your chauffeured will already be waiting and staged a few short steps from the aircraft itself, the private hangar or if required, the FBO exit gate. As the aircraft is taxiing in place you will receive notification through our AVAN (automated vehicle arrival notification system) confirming that the chauffeur is waiting for you. Please call 800.871.7627 (option 4) to speak with a client service representative about private aviation rates and service policies.
