December 29th, 2014 by admin in Limousine Service, Limousine Tips

YVR Airport Meet and GreetVancouver’s YVR airport is about far more than just arriving at the airport and leaving – flying in to or from Vancouver is a great time to indulge and enjoy the moment. There are plenty of luxurious, unique, and interesting ways you can spice up your next flight (before or after), and we’ve compiled our top 3 favorite activities in and around YVR:

 

Relax at the Premium Plaza Lounge

It doesn’t matter whether you’re in first-class or economy, the Premium Plaza Lounge in YVR is a great place to kick back and relax before your flight. Enjoy signature hot food dishes, fully equipped computer workstations, premium complimentary Wi-Fi, and alcoholic beverages.

You can pick up passes online at the Plaza Network, or at the gates in YVR. Your credit card may even offer complimentary lounge access, so it’s worth checking if you have this free perk.

 

Hire a Meet-and-Greet Chauffeur

You don’t need to be a celebrity to take a chauffeured vehicle. Get transferred to your destination in style with meet and greet airport service, and experience the luxury of hassle-free travel.

Your chauffeur will meet you curb side and escort you through the gate to your awaiting vehicle. Services include escorting unaccompanied minors, meeting and greeting connecting passengers, helping with your luggage and much more. If you require a chauffeur that speaks a language other than English, they will do their best to accommodate your needs.

 

Enjoy a Glass (or two) of Wine

British Columbia is famous for it’s vineyards and fine wines, so look no further than the two locations of Vino Volo in YVR. You can sit back and enjoy a nice glass of local wine before security on Level 2 of the airport, or in the U.S.A. terminal after security.

Perhaps you’ve decided that you’d like the full wine tour experience? Intralink Transportation also offers custom wine tours throughout British Columbia. See and experience the vineyards for yourself, with custom food pairings. A great whole-day event for friends and family.

Before or after you’re done visiting family and friends, it’s great to unwind and take in some of the holiday festivities the city has to offer. We’ve got some recommendations on attractions to see in 2014:

Pacific Central Station (Vancouver, BC) Overnight Parking

December 17th, 2014 by admin in Limousine Service, Limousine Tips, Sightseeing, Train Limousine

Train Transfer Limousine in VancouverWhether you’re travelling by Amtrak, VIA Rail, or any of the other transportation methods in Pacific Central Station, finding overnight parking for your car can be a real issue for a lot of travellers. You don’t have the option of taking the Skytrain, nor the bus, especially if the travel from your home is far away from the station, or if you have a lot of luggage to carry. Car seems like the only option for you, right?

Unfortunately Pacific Central Station doesn’t offer any long-term or overnight parking. The only other option, it seems, is a parking lot in the vicinity, and those can cost up to $10 per day, which really adds up when you’re gone for more than 2 weeks on your vacation. Nobody likes getting a bill for $200+ just for the “convenience” of parking their car.

So what’s the solution? Taking a train transfer limousine from your home or hotel can actually be more affordable than taking your own car! Not only will you have more than enough room for all of your luggage, but you’ll also get to start your vacation a little earlier in our luxury vehicles.

Limousines also offer you the benefit of always being reliable and on time, and a chauffeur will be ready to assist you with any luggage or mobility issues you may have. Don’t worry about finding a place to park, or paying for it. We can pick you up directly from your home when you’re leaving, and pick you up from the train when you get back, all for a better price than you will find anywhere else.
