You probably wouldn't think of a venue that hosts America's pastime as being haunted but co-authors of the book "Haunted Baseball: Ghosts, Curses, Legends and Eerie Events," Dan Gordon and Mickey Bradley, call Wrigley Field the spookiest sports setting ever built.

Tips for selecting the perfect luxury vehicle for your next event

If you’ve made the decision to use luxury transportation for your next big business meeting, party or non-emergency medical appointment, then you probably know that some of the benefits include safety, comfort and reliability. However, in addition to finalizing the important details, such as how you want to be billed and where you want to get picked up, it’s also critical that you think about what type of vehicle best suits your situation.

Of course, what vehicle you ride in depends on the market you need service. For example, the Mercedes E- and S- classes are most common abroad, as are the Mercedes Viano and Volkswagen Caravelle. However, regardless of what country you are in, you can rest assured that when you book chauffeured transportation with a reputable company, the agent you are working with will help you assess what vehicle is right for you. In the event you’d like to read over some general information before speaking with a dedicated representative, here are some things that you may want to keep in mind:

1) Luxury sedans are designed for one to three passengers
This type of vehicle is most common for those in need of airport pickup or transfers, transportation to financial roadshows and are appropriate for a night out around town. This luxury fleet typically includes cars such as a:

♦ Lincoln Town Car, MKT and MKZ Hybrid
♦ Cadillac XTS
♦ BMW 5 and BMW 7-Series
♦ Audi A6
♦ Mercedes Benz E and S Class

2) Luxury SUVs are best for six to seven people vacationing in the mountains or families with lots of luggage
It’s no secret that rental cars and taxis are often far too small to fit anything and are uncomfortable.Travel safely and in style when wintery conditions exist, when you are part of a small group or simply need some extra space. Luxury SUVs include:

♦ GMC Yukon Denali
♦ Chevrolet Suburban
♦ Cadillac Escalade

3) Vans are intended to provide transportation for 10 to 14 people to a corporate event
This fleet, which is perfect for conducting a meeting on-the-go has lots of room, extra wide doors, spacious and flexible seating options and the perfect amount of privacy. Vehicles in this category include:

♦ Mercedes Sprinter
♦ Ford E Series
♦ Mercedes Viano
♦ Volkswagen Caravelle

4) Stretch limousines are available for six, eight or 10 passengers and are most popular for celebrating a special occasion
If you are commemorating a an engagement, wedding, prom, graduation or birthday, then you may want to think about booking a limousine. This class of vehicles includes:

♦ Lincoln Town Car
♦ Chrysler 300C

5) Coaches are divided into two categories: Mini-coaches and motor coaches and are both cost-effective ways of transporting large groups

♦ Mini-coaches: These vehicles fit anywhere between 21 to 32 passengers and are ideal for corporate events, weddings or any other function where different passengers need transportation at various times.
♦ Motor coaches: These are your best option for over-the-road needs such as a trip across state lines or other long hauls. This type of vehicle fits up to 56 people and is also perfect for shuttling a large group at once for a wedding, sporting event, ski trip, airport, corporate event or convention. Motor coaches are an efficient, safe and cost-effective way of guaranteeing that all passengers arrive at once.

6) Specialty vehicles can be used to fit up to to 34 passengers, depending on the type of vehicle, and offer everyone the ultimate luxury experience

♦ H2 Hummers, Escalades and Navigators: These can accommodate between 16 and 20 passengers. These vehicles are spacious, have a bar and glassware and top of-the-line stereo system.
♦ Limo buses: These can fit 21 to 34 people. These vehicles are easier to step in and out of because you don’t have to sit to enter the vehicle. They provide more head room, similar to a mini- or motor coach. This fleet also has similar features to other specialty vehicles, but are designed for bigger groups, combining the passenger movement efficiencies of coaches with the traditional stretch amenities like a bar, sound system, televisions and lighting.

Use the Hermes mobile app to book luxury transportation in a matter of minutes.

Hermes Chauffeured Services mobile app is making traveling easier than ever

Each year, millions of people travel to Colorado to enjoy the great outdoors. Whether they go hiking in Vail and Telluride or hit the slopes in Aspen or Beaver Creek, there's no doubt that the Centennial State is enjoyed by visitors for its natural beauty and wide range of activities.

But, because many of Colorado's beautiful cities aren't exactly accessible by public transportation, it can be a little stressful trying to get from the airport to the resort you and your family are staying at.

Instead of trying to figure out how to get to your final destination or worrying about rental car availability, use Hermes Chauffeured Services mobile application to transport you and your loved ones to a five-star hotel.

This app allows you to save time by quickly booking transportation in a luxury SUV or a stretch limousine from any of Colorado's three major airports: Denver International, Eagle County or Aspen/Pitkin County, or anywhere else in the United States. The company even offers its services in most major cities abroad.

Within minutes, you'll receive a confirmation and then have the opportunity to ask if you want to book a return trip to the airport. If your flight is delayed, there's no need to worry. With the press of a button, you can let one of our employees know that you and your family are running a bit late.

What if you want transportation from the airport for yourself, but need Hermes to pick up your wife and kids at another location? That's no problem at all. The mobile app lets you input several addresses and names of passengers to ensure that no one is left waiting for a ride.

Hermes Chauffeured Services helps you comfortably get from point A to point B. You should be enjoying your travels, and whether you need to get to an important business meeting or arrive at your vacation home, the mobile app is making travel easy again.

A private tour of a new city is a great way to spend free time and see the sights that are important to you.

Private tours of new cities are a great way to kill time during long layovers

Getting around an unfamiliar town can be tough to do on your own. If you're away for business and you have nothing to do for an afternoon, you may simply choose to nap or watch television in your hotel room rather than explore the city.

Jill Becker, a travel writer for CNN, was once told by a colleague that she should hire a private tour guide whenever she visits a new city. She explained that she first envisioned "a perfect stranger robotically rattling off a bunch of boring facts on things about which [she] didn't even care," but soon realized that it actually a fine way to take advantage of luxury transportation.

Her first experience with a private driver was one of her favorite parts of that trip, she writes. Becker said that with a glass of champagne in her hand, she watched the sunset from the London Eye. Becker is just one of many travelers who are utilizing the concierge services of lavish transportation providers like Hermes Worldwide.

Lauren Fairbanks, a partner at a marketing firm, told CNN that she is on the road for a week to 10 days every month, and has found that being guided around cities by chauffeured transportation is a perfect way to kill time.

"The biggest pro is that it's on your time schedule, so you have full control, which is especially good when you're trying to maximize a long layover," Fairbanks told the media outlet. "I'm actually a fan of checking things out on my own, but only having a few hours in a city and not knowing your way around is a good formula for getting lost and missing your flight."

She added that there's more to it than just riding around in a town car. She was actually able to visit sites that were tailored to her interests, which she said she may have not been able to see had she gone on a traditional group tour.

Transportation in London during the 2012 Olympics will be a nightmare if attendees haven't reserved their own car service.

Private luxury transportation popular for the 2012 Olympics in London

The 2012 Olympic Games in London are expected to draw in a large number of high-profile, wealthy attendees. But, with an event that has the magnitude of the Olympics, it can be difficult for VIPs to find adequate luxury transportation when there are so many others trying to do just the same.

Typical economy flights and car service should be nearly out of the question for those guests who can afford to utilize finer means of transportation, as there are more than 500,000 travelers expected to fly to London on commercial airlines for the games, according to a press release. Because of this, as many as 3,000 additional private flights are expected to traffic British airports during late July and early August.

From July 14 to September 12, the United Kingdom government will lay down strict air traffic restrictions, and private flights into Heathrow and Gatwick will be be limited or banned during this time period.

Due to limitations on airspace usage, the number of travelers anticipated to be headed to London and high demand for luxury transportation, those who wish to reserve a private flight may want to do so as soon as possible.

Additionally, all attendees of this year's summer games should be aware that there will be no spectator parking available at any of the of venues hosting Olympic events. Because of this, guests should reserve chauffeured transportation as soon as possible.

Hermes Worldwide is one of the world's leading providers of transportation for special events, offering top-notch concierge services to help their customers get the most out of any trip. Limo and luxury SUV bookings in London are filling up fast, so it's crucial that interested parties make a quick reservation on the Hermes website or by giving them a call.

One family thought they were getting in a regular cab, but they quickly learned that wasn't the case.

Illegal cab driver tries to evade police in high-speed chase with family onboard

One of the most hectic parts of traveling is getting to where you're going. Trying to flag down taxicabs can be very stressful, and navigating through an unfamiliar city via public transportation can seem impossible. But, even once travelers utilize one of these services, they may be in for the ride of their lives – and that's usually not a good thing.

This was the case for a family of four from Panama who innocently jumped into a cab at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York last February. Little did they know that their driver was unlicensed and illegally soliciting passengers at the airport, according to the Queens District Attorney's office.

With the family in tow, he sped off from the airport and was promptly pursued by police. One of the passengers had to grab the wheel and intentionally crash the vehicle into a guardrail to end the high-speed chase.

"As this case clearly illustrates, unregulated taxis and unscrupulous drivers – who are not properly licensed and who do not carry appropriate insurance – put passengers at serious risk," District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement.

Don't stress over trying to find a legitimate taxi driver or deal with the complications of using public transportation. For the most reliable airport service and chauffeured transportation, look no further than Hermes Worldwide. Not only do we offer the best luxury transportation in the industry, we also provide comprehensive concierge services to help our customers get the most of their trip.
