I had read really good things about Dial 7, so I decided to give them a try. I was happily surprised and will definitely use them again!
I reserved a sedan to pick us up from La Guardia airport to take us to our hotel, then back to the airport, a few days later.
I could have just taken a yellow cab into the city, but I wanted a nice car for my husband and I, so I made my reservations via their website.
Having lived in NYC, I knew that anything was possible, I mean the guy could have showed up in a beat-up, old VW bus, so I was a tad bit nervous.
My email confirmation said to call the toll free number after we retrieved our luggage, and the girl I spoke to gave me the number of my car and said he would be there in 5 minutes.
You have to cross over to the next curb and look for your driver holding a sign in his hand, out his window with the car number on it. He pulled right up, put our luggage in the trunk, confirmed where we were going and we were off. The car was a fairly new, nice, black Lincoln sedan. The driver was really nice and professional and we arrived at the hotel in about 30 minutes…not too bad in rush hour traffic.
The rate was a flat rate of $36.00 not including tolls or gratuity, which is a great rate so That’s why I reserved it. There was another car service that wanted to charge $85.00 oneway for the same kind of car, and a cab would have been about $35-$40, so I felt I was doing good.
Like I said, I was a little nervous about the shape the car would be in, because the cars are usually privately owned by the driver and not by the car service, so you never know, but I was pleasantly surprised in both instances.
When we were picked up at our hotel for the ride back to the airport, the driver was on time and the company even called me to make sure my car had arrived. VERY NICE.
The car on the way back was a cream colored Lincoln and not AS nice as the first one, but nicer than a cab.
At any rate, I absolutely recommend them to anyone wanting a nice ride to or from the airport.
