Professionally operated private car service: Never more important

Our time to shine

The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting business crisis come with astronomical human and financial costs. But this week, as folks are starting to head back to LaGuardia, Kennedy, Newark, White Plains, Hartford/Springfield and Boston Logan, I wrote to Team Teddy’s about this being an opportunity to demonstrate the value of a truly professional private car service.

“…business travel managers feel assured their Duty of Care responsibilities are met and this is now more crucial than ever.”

Premium executive transportation has always been a trusted boutique niche in the ground transportation industry which, in general, has as many customers as the airline and hotel industry. But only about three percent of the overall market, the most influential, hardest working and wealthy travelers typically leverage the added productivity of premium private car service.

This positioning has been challenged by global app-cab platforms to share personal cars which blurs lines and may have travelers and travel managers begin to question our value equation. Many observers have thought that our niche would be further eroded by futuristic mass transit algorithms, automated marketplaces and artificially powered robots.

‘Yes,’ we had to re-energize to show that a qualified, duly vetted, trained, briefed, managed and committed professional driver in an impeccably spotless premium vehicle has remarkable value. Such service keeps you safer, more productive and greatly increases the peace-of-mind of the traveler as well as that of his family and his corporate risk manager.

If your team’s travelers are flying business class and staying in premium boutique hotels, they command the added comfort and productivity of a professional private car service. Luckily, Teddy’s professional private sedan service from, say LaGuardia to Westport or JFK to Stamford is still about $100 less than UberBlack during busier times of day at airports!

To this, add the new dimension of travel during the COVID crisis. “Premium private car” has always helped business travel managers feel assured their Duty of Care responsibilities are met and this is now more crucial than ever. As our industry deploys the safest and most stringent COVID protocols, business travelers, older people and families, being cautious, will favor our pro solution and much more lightly used vehicles over jumping into a random personal-car driver with a cab app and many times the per-day fare count.
