A Ride Is A Ride
Or Is It?
It is true that a $100 suit serves the requirement of decency just as well as a $1000 suit. What is not true however is that these suits are equal in quality. What is also not true is that the $100 suit and the $1000 suit will deliver an identical experience. The $100 suit more than likely is a product of inferior fabric and even more inferior workmanship. The $100 suit covers the essentials but it won’t make you stand out in a crowd and won’t certainly make you feel ‘like a million bucks’. A $1000 suit on the other hand is expertly crafted from the finest fabric, looks and feels luxurious and makes a bold statement. You feel like you have your personal glam squad with you for the entire time you are wearing this suit… you feel like royalty.
Likewise, a ride is not just a ride. While The Bahamas is a laid back and relaxed country, rest assured that luxurious car services are definitely available to the discerning traveler. There is no need to settle for the ‘$100 suit of transfers’ when the ‘$1000 suit of transfers’ is available to you without the price tag.
‘The $100 Suit of Transfers’
The cheapest form of transfers, particularly from NAS (Nassau International Airport) is taxis. It is definitely a ride and will get you to your hotel or destination address. All local taxis service The Atlantis Resort, Comfort Suites, Baha Mar, Breezes, Melia, One & Only Ocean Club and all other hotels on the island. If the car condition and service level is of no consequence to you, then by all means a taxi may be the best option. However, after a long or eventful flight, the last thing you need is to have to track down a taxi only for it to pull alongside you as if straight out of a car wreck from the 1980’s. You may get lucky and get a taxi that is from this decade, but have to contend with the hot oven (car cabin) as the Air condition is not functioning ‘at the moment’; not a great start when local weather usually is between 80 and 90 degrees F. Perhaps you may wish to take the chance with a shuttle company. They are a little better organized and vehicles are mostly modern. However, prepare to wait 15 to 45 minutes at times for the shuttle bus to get filled up with other passengers before it can leave the airport. Shuttles can also make several stops before you arrive at your hotel. Cross your fingers that your hotel is first and not last.
‘The $1000 Suit of Transfers’
Very far from actually costing $1000 a ride, a pre-arranged luxury private transfer will provide an experience befitting royalty. Besides NAS, Private Car Services can also be arranged from the private airports, Odyssey Aviation and Jet Aviation Nassau/Executive Flight Support. In addition to servicing the popular Atlantis Resort and other major hotels, private car companies also service marinas and clubs such as Albany Marina, Lyford Cay Club, Atlantis Marina and Nassau Yacht Club.
Prices are always per vehicle and not passenger count. Based on number of passengers, this option often times prove to be less expensive than shuttle rides. Your chauffeur is trained to anticipate and meet your every need. You chauffeur will greet you at the airport with a warm smile and escort you to your vehicle of choice. Luxury car service companies offer modern fleets of fully insured Luxury Sedans, SUVs, Stretch Limousines and Vans from which you can choose from. Families traveling with younger kids can pre-arrange child safety seats to be available in the preferred vehicle of choice at time of pick up, usually at no additional cost. Grocery or Liquor Store Stops can also be arranged on the way. Water and soft drinks are always complimentary and Limousine Bars are stocked. In addition to clean modern and luxury vehicles, you can pre-arrange any other special request from specialty wines, flowers, balloons etc.
