8 Reasons to Choose Driverseat Sarasota for your Airport Transportation Needs
Hiring us for your airport pick-up means that you are being chauffeured by professional, well-trained and experienced drivers who have been thoroughly background checked. We have a strict COVID-19 policy in place for the protection of you and our drivers and all our vehicles are cleaned and sanitized between passengers. Please note: all passengers are required to sanitize before entering the vehicle and to wear a mask.
Download the Driverseat App to book and pay for your ride. The app is powered by Stripe, the same secure payment platform used by Amazon, Lyft, etc. and so you can be confident that your credit card details remain confidential. Another huge advantage to using this award-winning booking app is that you can track your driver by GPS, you can see a photo of them so that you know who is picking you up and you will also get a direct line to them in case of any unexpected events.
It is likely to be difficult to hail a taxi to or from the airport on busy days, especially in peak season. Arriving late to the airport and missing your flight is a nightmare for any traveler. When you use a professional airport transportation service, you are sure to arrive on time. At Driverseat Sarasota, we track your flights and monitor delays, adjusting the time of your pick-up and drop-off accordingly. No matter the airport you’re traveling through, we’ll get you there with plenty of time to spare.
4. Insurance & Permits
Don’t let your dream vacation turn into a nightmare. Although it may be tempting to book a ride from someone you saw on a forum on Facebook, make sure you do your due diligence and check that they are fully insured to carry passengers and have a business license to operate. Did you know that 27% of Florida drivers are uninsured? Don’t get into a vehicle that isn’t covered. A legitimate company will be more than happy to show you their documentation.
All of our airport shuttle vehicles are fully insured and regularly safety-checked, ensuring they are always safe for travel. Our late-model luxury vehicles can accommodate up to six passengers, which is perfect for larger groups. Driverseat Sarasota has all the required licenses and permits to be able to legally provide ground transportation services to and from Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ), Tampa International Airport (TPA) and St Pete-Clearwater International Airport.
5. Local Chauffeurs
All of our drivers are locals of Sarasota County and are well acquainted with the area. They are really experienced when it comes to all aspects of a ride to the airport. Providing a private transfer to the airport and to a client’s home have been their daily routine. They are likely to be updated too when it comes to detours and road construction delays. You can trust them when it comes to finding the fastest / most direct route. Don’t let the anxiety and stress of driving around an unknown city with an inexperienced driver start your trip off on the wrong foot. Leave the driving to us and we’ll start your trip off right.
Driving in an unfamiliar busy city after a long flight can not only be very stressful but can also be very dangerous for you and your loved ones. Don’t take the risk of hiring a vehicle if you aren’t comfortable with driving alongside Florida drivers!
Most people think that hiring a driver is bound to be expensive but it is actually a very cost-effective decision. It often costs more to leave your car in the airport car park, and you can never be too sure about your time of arrival or departure when you book a traditional shuttle service. It might be impractical to take public transportation to or from the airport if you have a lot of luggage. It might be inconvenient for a friend or family member to pick you up or drop you off. When you hire an airport transportation service, you don’t have to worry about the extra fees that come with car rental, including airport parking fees, extra insurance, and fuel.
Have assurance of a fixed rate when using a reputable airport transportation service. Ride-sharing companies (like Uber and Lyft) use pricing techniques that calculate your rate based on miles and time of travel. This pricing technique can sometimes as much as double your originally quoted trip price if unexpected factors like traffic and road detours affect your travel route. Sarasota is a heavily populated area and a major tourist destination. Traffic is almost inevitable; have peace of mind by using a reputable airport car service with a fixed rate. Check out our rates on the Driverseat Sarasota homepage.
8. Feel like a VIP
Driverseat Sarasota only hires friendly, courteous chauffeurs who will help you in and out of the vehicle and load your luggage into the trunk for you. Groups traveling can be a wonderful experience but can also cause a lot of headaches for the organizer, especially when you have little ones to accommodate. Be reassured that our trained chauffeurs will go the extra mile where they can.
We have mentioned just some of the many advantages of booking an airport shuttle but there are a lot more reasons to use our airport transfer service. Whether going on vacation with family, traveling alone or going away for a golf weekend, using an airport shuttle service plays a big role in your travel experience.
