Last week, I was taking a quick trip with my 18 month old daughter. A close trusted friend who is extremely concerned with car safety gave me the name of the company she uses. But while it came highly recommended, it was unaffordable. I was quoted over $200 one way to the airport, plus tax, tolls and gratuity.
Coincidentally, someone on a Facebook moms group I am party of happened to ask for a car service that provided a car seat to the airport and someone responded with Legends Car Service.
I booked it immediately when I was quoted $75 to Newark airport (plus tax, tolls and gratuity) and $86 for the Friday night return pick-up.
I was ecstatic when a black Lincoln SUV was waiting in front of my apartment to whisk me and my daughter to the airport. What a first-class way to kick-off our first girls only trip! There was an Evenflo car seat that Greenlee was comfortable in. (I specifically requested a car seat when I booked the car).
The driver was courteous, friendly and in good spirits, even when Greenlee was crying (She’s not nearly as good a car passenger as her older brother). There were also complimentary bottles of bottled Poland Spring and individually wrapped sucking candies.
As we were on the highway approaching the airport, I was thinking that I almost want to get rid of our Honda Accord (which would also eliminate insurance and garage bills) and be chauffeured by a driver in a Lincoln which came complete with a car seat.
Coming home, another black Lincoln (this time a Towne car instead of an SUV) was on-site waiting for my call when I arrived at baggage claim. Once again, there was a wonderful driver, car seat and the refreshments.
It was quick and easy to pay by credit card through an iPad and my receipts were immediately emailed to me for my reference.
I suggested my husband’s firm switch their corporate account to Legends and my friend who recommended the much more expensive car service is going to switch to this company the next time she requires car service.
Have you had an experience with Legends or any other car service that caters to families with small children?
Please note: I used this car service as a regular consumer and did not receive any compensation or promotion.
