Limousines – A Perfect Way to Travel Comfortably

The automobile industry has so many cars on display for its innumerable customers from all walks of life. However, one car that stands apart in this race is the limousine. Chic, stylish, elegant and at the same time equally comfortable that is exactly how one can define a limousine.

At one time the limousine was a car made for the rich and the famous. It was not just a car but more than just that. Owning a limousine simply meant prestige and pride. The style and elegance along with the class and the prestige personified it totally. To this day no other car has managed to get the popularity that the limousine has.

Categorized under the luxury vehicle, this car has managed to retain its charm to this day and is a favorite among all age groups. The limousine is the hearts throb of every occasion then be it a birthday or a wedding or maybe important business travel. No matter what the occasion this car is worth every penny paid. However, now any one can fulfill having the limousine for their special occasion as one need not buy the vehicle. All one needs to do is simply hire one from the dealers.

These cars are now available for every occasion and can be rented according to one’s convenience and budget. The stretch limousines are quite a favorite with a lot of people. This vehicle has the lengthened wheelbase and is mostly chauffeured by a driver. Many people traveling prefer to use this luxury vehicle because it’s not just the style factor but also extremely comfortable.

One can rent the limousine from the car service agents. However, it must be borne in mind that the vehicle rented is from a registered agency. Another important thing to note is that these lanky vehicles need to be booked before hand and cannot be rented like the taxis.

Concierge Chauffeur Services for the Best in Luxury Travel

We’ve all heard of chauffeur services, of course – but what are concierge chauffeur services? Simply enough, they’re the next level – the ultimate in sophisticated hire travel, suitable for impressing the socks off any client, customer or prospective business partner. A concierge chauffeur does everything a normal chauffeur can do, plus a whole lot more, becoming a kind of combination of driver, companion and personal secretary for the duration of the hire period.

Once a person has hired a chauffeur, he or she (or the client, if the chauffeur has been hired for third party use) need not worry about a single thing connected with his, her, or his or her client’s visit. Concierge chauffeur services arrange absolutely everything for their customers, should their customers want them to – travel arrangements; accommodation; reservations for meals and clubs; even evening entertainment. they are also able to keep tabs on appointments, ensuring that the person being driven attends every meeting on time and in style.

It’s the little extras that really make the difference. Top quality chauffeur packages, like the ones delivered by London’s Vennards (a chauffeur hire company that has made a name for itself by providing over the odds services for very reasonable prices) have all sorts of perks attached to them that the others simply can’t match. Vennards, for example has built a series of relationships with some very exclusive clubs and restaurants – which means patrons of Vennards’ concierge chauffeur services are able to secure tables and seats even when there aren’t supposed to be any left. Vennards also have arrangements with theatre and entertainment venues and booking agencies – which means clients who want to attend sold out shows, concerts and gigs get in every time, with VIP status.

There’s really no better way of impressing than by using our chauffeur services. Every last detail is attended to with meticulous care. Even the livery of the chauffeur can be chosen, either to match with a company colour scheme (maybe the logo, or the colours of the most famous product) or to offset the interior of the car. Make and model of car is offered on a selection basis, with every vehicle in the fleet representing the height of that particular manufacturer’s art. Add to this the fact that all the drivers in the best concierge services have been trained to the pinnacle of their profession and it’s easy to see why clients who have been treated to our services keep coming back for more.

Successful business is as much about making the right impression as it is about selling, or buying, or promoting products. People do business with people who they like, whose style they like, or who impress them. Using our service is a guaranteed avenue into all three. Once a client, business partner or customer has been treated to the best of the best, everyone else’s attempts to impress them will seem pretty second rate – which, by default, makes the business that treated them to concierge chauffeur services the coveted holders of the first rate crown.

Become a Travel Agent Superstar

What is the essence of high sales for any travel consultant?
What makes you become a travel agent superstar with high sales volume?
Have you ever pondered these questions effectively?

Well after coaching 146 small businesses and spending 13 years in the travel industry here are my top 4 tips for maximizing your travel sales and overachieving as a travel consultant.

1. What is your personal vision for your role?
That is – what are you aiming for?
I urge you to set a yearly target for your sales and break it down to quarterly and monthly targets for your sales.

Without a target to aim for it has been my experience that there is no possible way to overachieve.

Interestingly my experience has been that sales of any travel agency individual without a target to aim for are usually about 20-40% lower over a year than a competing travel agency with a target.

After all, how can you possible stay motivated enough to push through the inevitable challenges and roadblocks that come your way. This point is critical to high sales. Mark my words you must have a target to pursue, to smash or to push towards.
Example: 1 year target is $1 million gross sales for the company.

2. Follow up every enquiry with 5 multiple professional communications.

If I could convince you of the mightiest of strategies, the one that takes the pick as the first tactic I would introduce to any travel business, it would be following up every quote within 3 business days and to keep in touch with your prospects until they buy.

Burn this secret into your mind. To build any business to consumer relationship you need to accept that several contacts should be considered the norm and not the exception when dealing with your prospects. Three, five or seven contacts or communications with your enquirer virtually means a booking will result with you rather than a hit or miss one contact approach.

The biggest mistake most new travel businesses make is to NOT consistently follow up every enquiry. The best way to enable this to happen is to have a sales system whereby every consultant professionally and without fear is trained to simply have 3 or 5 or 7 communications after someone enquires. I recommend you start with producing a simple 5 step sales system.

3. Generating most of your clients from referrals

The reality for us all in the travel industry is that most clients are very happy with your service. Generally speaking we are dealing with a delightful subject – travel and people warm to the advice we give.

So because we are in an industry like this, we all need to capitalize on these good feelings and reward ourselves with many more clients.

Put directly, if you have not got a referral program in place for your travel business, you are missing out on a lot of extra business.

So to maximize sales and to become a travel agent superstar you must give your current customers an opportunity to sell for you by recommending others to you. There is so many ways this can be done effectively. But in essence it is about offering to help all of your delighted clients friends, family and colleagues when the time comes to travel.

4. Do you really want to become a travel agent overachiever?

You may think this is a strange question to ask. But listen up. In business and in life I have found a direct correlation with over achievement and the reasons why you are doing it. Have you got your reasons why sorted as to why you want to become a travel agent superstar?

If not, let us make a start right now.

I suggest you list down ten to twenty reasons why you want to overachieve.

Examples could be:

I want to earn a high income to support my family.

I want to earn the prestige and recognition of my travel agency colleagues.

I want to win the award for best travel consultant in my organization.

I want to sell $1 million of travel this year and earn a 14 day Mediterranean cruise that our company gives away for over achievement.

I want to become a travel agent superstar because I have the urgency to help give value to as many customers, who I deem to be personal friends rather than clients.

Whenever you have your reasons clear for anything this clarity often becomes like an unstoppable force heading down a fast track.

Imagine as a travel agency business you go through these 4 areas above with every consultant individually and collectively in team meeting. Can you imagine the end result?
I can safely say from experience the end result means every individual has the tools and motivation to become a travel agent over achiever.
