Several limousine rental companies serve Switzerland and the main cities of Zurich, Basel and Geneva. With multitude of options, clients often want to book the cheapest of all the limousines.
But the tempting offer of the quote can sometimes vary on the credit card of the client. It is therefore important to know the very details as well as the policies of different companies, to choose the best among all. Here are some of the hidden ways which can fool the clients in hiring the wrong rental company.
Some limo renting companies have some hidden expenses and costs which they hide from the clients at the time of renting the limousine, and they are seen on the credit card bill only. Here are some of these tricks which many limousine renting companies perform and the clients should be bewaring of.
Cost and Fees
There are a lot of fees involved in renting out a limousine apart from the main hourly rental fees of the limousine. When clients get an online quote of the cost of limousine, it is inclusive of all the fees and the total price is quoted.
But in cases of phone calls and face to face communication, sometimes the inclusive fees are missed, which give a wrong impression to the client.
Some of the fees which some companies charge their clients are:
Early morning pickup fee
And many other charges which are not foretold and only show upon the credit card bill by the company.
Some companies also charge the” safe ride fee”, which includes the background check on the driver or the chauffeur and gives the client complete information about the driver/chauffeur.
When clients go through the online pictures of the cars and limousine models, they find shiny and sparkling new models. But the actual limousine may look the same is not always true. Some the images used online are stock images or old photographs. Therefore, the clients should either visit the company or ask them to send the latest pictures of the limousine models to gauge the condition of the vehicle.
The images available online do not show the age and condition of the limousine aptly. For example, if a client is looking to hire a stretch town car limousine, it is bound to be old since those models were manufactured from 20013 till the year 2011 only.
The fleet of the company depends on their reputation and their experience in the limousine renting business. It is advisable to check the fleet of the companies in person to know the exact condition of all the limousines in the fleet.
There are a lot of companies and websites which are available online but don’t have their own fleet of cars for limousine renting. They subcontract the limousine renting to some other companies. In such cases, the chances of error are very huge and they are not trustworthy as the real companies with their own fleet, chauffeurs and well trained staff.
Therefore, when hiring the limousine service Switzerland, these unforeseen problems should be cleared in the beginning of the negotiation only.
