When you hire a company to perform a service for you, it’s only fair if you know exactly how much you are going to pay for that service. Nobody likes surprises when they come in the form of additional expenses, as it’s hard to plan for how much you are going to spend when the bill at the end is a bit of a mystery.
This is a problem in some parts of the transportation industry. Some companies will add a surcharge to your bill depending on how long it takes to complete the ride and drop you off. But those traffic conditions are not your fault! Why should you pay more just because the traffic got worse than you expected? We don’t think you should be stuck paying that bill, so flat rates are the way we like to do business.
What Are Flat Rates?
In the car service world, the term “flat rates” simply means that you pay a given price for the trip you book regardless of how long that trip takes to complete. This is the easiest, most predictable, and fairest way to pay for a car service. When a business like Anaheim Town Car Services uses flat rates, all customers know exactly how much they are going to pay for our services, with no surprises coming at the end of the ride. The only additional cost you can incur with us is a gratuity paid to the driver, which is always at your discretion.
Why Flat Rates Matter
Let’s look at an example to see how this plays out in the real world. Imagine you are flying into Southern California so you can take a family trip to Disneyland. Your flight is scheduled to land at LAX in the middle of the day, and you have booked a car service to pick you up at the airport and take you across town to Anaheim. This is a great plan and one that many visitors use as a convenient and enjoyable way to access the park.
However, as often happens, your flight winds up getting delayed, and you don’t land at LAX until closer to the evening hours. As a result, traffic to get across town is much slower than it would have been if your flight had gotten in on time. It’s now rush hour, and the trip over to Anaheim is simply going to take longer than it would have earlier in the day.
With flat rate pricing, you won’t have to worry about paying more for the car service because of the traffic conditions. You paid to get from LAX to Disneyland, and you’ll get exactly what you paid for, no matter how long it happens to take. The driver you work with from Anaheim Town Car Services will use navigation to find the best possible path to the park given the day’s traffic situation, and you’ll be enjoying Disneyland before you know it.
