Rideshare services like Uber are very popular. In fact, over 8 million people are using Uber alone around the globe!

Uber can be handy when you don’t want to walk home in the rain. Or even for a lift to go run errands. But is it dependable enough to use for your ski vacation plans?

A private car service can offer its customers quite a few things Uber can’t. Let’s look at 10 reasons why you should hire a private car for your next ski trip to Vail. Or anywhere else, for that matter!

Rider Safety

When you’re headed out on vacation, you only want to think about having fun. You shouldn’t have to worry about car accidents or sketchy rideshare drivers.

A private car service can ensure your safety on the road far more than rideshare services can.

Of course, rideshare companies have a vetting process. But proper oversight can never be as thorough as a private car service. It’s an inevitable side effect of their flexible business model.

Road safety isn’t the only thing to think about. In the past 4 years, there have been 339 alleged sexual assault cases involving Uber and Lyft drivers.

Well Vetted Drivers

Speaking of professional drivers. Uber, at least, relies on feedback from their customers to root out bad drivers. That means something scary has to have already happened before they know to fire the driver.

Plus, a rideshare driver can hand his phone and car to a friend and let him work for a while. That means your rideshare driver may never have gone through the vetting process at all.

A private car service investigates its drivers ahead of time. To work for a private car company, you have to have a solid driving record. And, of course, a clean criminal one too.


A driver that works on the side can never provide the same professionalism. Professional drivers are professionals for a reason.

Private service offers the utmost in professionalism. Rideshare and even taxi drivers forget to put the customer first. That’s because they concern themselves with completing as many rides as possible.

A private driver puts the customer first. Their focus is on offering a pleasant, safe transportation experience.

Customer Service

As we’ve noted, private drivers put their customers first. Their main purpose is to provide a great experience for their customers.

That makes them dependable and friendly. Plus they offer top quality service. Rideshare services can’t guarantee that kind of service. They are far too disjointed.

Insurance Concerns

Insurance, as it relates to rideshare companies, is still a bit hazy. The rules haven’t yet been well defined.

Private car service insurance has been well-defined for years. You don’t have to worry about insurance coverage in the rare case of an accident.

Arrival Time Guaranteed

Rideshare services are almost always available. But it depends on how many drivers are active. It also depends on if there is one near you when you start to look for a ride.

You can schedule transportation in advance with our private car service. A good company will always have a car for you on time. Remember, their goal is to provide the best customer service possible. That includes being on time, every time.

Secure Airport Pickup

A great example of needing to be on time is for trips to the airport. A plane will not wait for you because you couldn’t find a ride when you needed one. It will take off regardless of whether you are onboard.

A private service will be there to pick you up and get you to the airport on time.

The same is true for when you land at the airport. After you have been traveling for many hours, you don’t want to have to wait for a ride.

With a rideshare service, once you land you have to start looking for your ride. When traveling international, your phone may not have its own Internet service. That means you’ll have to be searching for a connection somewhere in the airport.

Avoid all the hassle and set up your pickup ahead of time. The car will be waiting for you when you land. Many times the company will track your flight in case you arrive early or late. All that’s left is a stress-free ride to your destination.

Up-to-date Navigation

A private car service provides its drivers with up-to-date navigation. Don’t worry about getting lost on the way to your destination. Even if the driver doesn’t know quite where you want to go, they have the technology to find it.

Rideshare companies don’t provide their drivers with navigation technology. That means your driver could be fiddling with their phone’s GPS while driving. That’s a little dangerous.

Plus, great ski resorts are sometimes off the beaten path. That makes them even harder to find with a navigation app that may not be up-to-date.

No Surprise Fees

Rideshare companies offer their users an estimated price. That price can change based on traffic or other factors.

When you hire a private car, we’ll quote you up front the price you’ll pay. You don’t have to worry about sudden extra fees popping up. Check out common rates here to know what you can expect.

Traveling as a Group

With a rideshare service, you don’t always know what kind of vehicle will come to pick you up. When traveling in a group, you might not be able to get one vehicle big enough for everyone.

It’s not as fun and can even be stressful when you can’t all travel together, the way you planned. With a private service, you can order a vehicle the right size from the start.

By now you get the point, we imagine. For dependability, professionalism, and safety a private car service is the way to go.
