NEW PRE-ARRANGED LIMO AREA AT DALLAS LOVE FIELD

SW_7009085_Love_Field_Modernization_Program_001_LGDallas Love Field has moved the Pre-Arranged Limousine loading at Dallas Love Field. This will change how Allpoints Corporate Express meets it clients at Love Field.  Formerly, Limousines loaded across from baggage claim on the same level at Love Field. Now new construction now completed channels passengers to the Lower Level from the main concorse for ground transportation options. The Pre-Arranged Limousines, Taxicabs, Shuttles and Rental Car Shuttles are now at the end of a ramp which also leads to the parking garage.

In general the new accommodations are visually very nice. (see pictures)  However, there are only about five parking places for limousines.  Considering that the old limousine area could hold around eleven this means that when busy flights arrive drivers have little recourse other than to circle hoping that one of the parking places opens up.  In response Love Field officials have instituted a ten minute before flight arrival time limit.  This is no doubt to prevent drivers from arriving early in order to get a parking place.  The airport ground transportation street regularly check driver manifests in order to enforce this rule. This also deters “hustlers” and Uber drivers from sitting on the limo stand.

lovelimostand2Unlike Dallas Fort Worth International Airport Love Field did not bother to meet with the Limousine Industry or the Dallas Fort Worth Limousine Association during the design phase of the new construction project.  Had this been done the industry would have recommended more parking before concrete was poured.  This is a common problem in Dallas in general.

The rules listed on the Love Field website indicate that Taxicabs and Limousines must load on a first come first served basis.  Surly this is a misprint since limousines must be pre-arranged and cannot take any customer who is not pre-arranged.  There was a Limousine Remote Parking Area next to the Taxicab Holding Lot but it has been closed although the sign is still up.  At this point there is no clear place for limousines to wait at the airport until time to pull up to the stand.  A call to the ground transportation office did not get a response.

It has been suggested that limousines wait off airport until their clients call from the curbside.  At Allpoints Corporate Express we do not see this as providing the type of service our clients are paying for and we will continue to orbit the terminal until we are able to pick up our clients with a sign and a smile.

Dallas Love Field is a work in progress.  We can only hope that the first class facilities provided for travelers will make this important entry point to the Dallas Fort Worth area reflect the friendliness and welcoming spirit for which Dallas is known.

Bride Gets Burger and “high five”

Special requests on wedding bookings are not unusal for Allpoints Limousines since we really strive to provide personalized service. However, this couple came up with a new one.

The bride had once worked at the What-A-Burger # 460 at 401 E. Northwest Hwy in Grapevine. She wanted to go through the drive in on the way to the hotel. She is seen in the attached photo “high fiving” the guy in the window. Following their late night visit they were chauffeured on to the Embassy Suites.

New Year’s Eve with Allpoints Limos

newyear

The time has come to send 2013 to the history books and welcome 2014. Allpoints Corporate Express is there to make the transition fun and safe. Allpoints Limousines offers eight and ten passenger Stretch Limousines as well as our Limo Bus for that evening of parties and celebration.

On New Years Eve the minimum booking for a hired vehicle is six hours. At Allpoints Limos we do not increase the hourly rate. However, many companies do, so price around before you settle on a vehicle. If you are thinking about using one of the “on demand” services like Uber, be aware that they will often double, or triple the price during periods of high demand. Because the demand will be high it may not be possible to get service very quickly. This is why it is a good idea to have your driver reserved and standing by.

Our eight and ten passenger stretche limousines are great for small parties while our 14 passenger Limo Bus is just the thing for larger groups. Your have the fun and we will worry about the safety!

Allpoints Provides a Safe Ride Home from Holiday Parties

437636-Royalty-Free-RF-Clip-Art-Illustration-Of-A-Red-Nosed-Cartoon-Businessman-Wearing-Antlers-And-Holding-A-Drink-While-Draped-In-Christmas-LightsAllpoints Corporate Express announces it’s Safe Ride Home bookings for those Holiday Parties! We have all heard the jokes about the office party and lamp shades on the head. But how does a host protect guests when they have “enjoyed” the party too much to drive? One idea is to rent a sedan, with driver, or stretch to take guests home. This can be done for a few hundred dollars and provides big benifits in avoiding legal entanglements.

For a reasonable fee our driver waits outside of the party location and when the need arises are ready to take the passenger to their home.

Call 214 212 0981 for details.

Allpoints Begins Service for Galvestion Cruises

photo (18)Allpoints Limousines has begun group service to and from the Port of Galveston cruise ship terminal from the Dallas and Fort Worth Area. Using our 10 passenger Executive Vans we will pick up your group in the Dallas or Fort Worth Area and drive them directly to the Galveston Cruise Terminal. When the ship returns we are waiting to take your group directly back home.  Full details are available at www.DFWtoGalvestonCruiseBus.com.

The Executive Van holds up to ten passengers in comfort with individual leather captain’s chairs with arm rests. There is ample room for baggage in the rear of the bus. There are also two ice bins for bottled water and refreshments so bring your goodies. Pop a DVD in the TV or play your favorite, on your device, on our Boise sound system.

We charge $900.00 each way for a total of $1800.00 round trip. A little extra if it requires two overnight stays for the driver. In most cases the driver will go down the night before you return so as to be fresh for the drive back. When the price of 10 airline tickets to Houston and the price of ground tranfers from Houston to Galveston are added up or prices are quite reasonable. Our typical transfer takes about six hours.  Consider the time involved in driving to Love Field, parking, flying, finding a shuttle then driving to Galveston. There is a parking charge at the airport and your car is exposed to the dangers of being away from your garage.
