We've all been there. You pack everything in your car and drive to the airport, faced with the decision of where to park. You want your car to be safe from theft and the elements, but you don't want to pay a fortune in parking fees either. Once you get to your destination, there's the inevitable struggle of finding transportation – whether it be a rental car, bus or taxi – to your hotel, sometimes in a city you're not familiar with. Sounds like a stressful way to start your travels.Miranda Kerr gives Chauffeur Drive a try — Photo courtesy of Qantas
Not anymore. Qantas Airlines is teaming up with Emirates to offer a new luxury chauffeur service to its passengers beginning in 2013, called Chauffeur Drive. First and business class passengers on Qantas long-haul flights will be picked up in a luxury vehicle for the ride to the airport, so the car can stay safely in the driveway. Once on the ground in the destination city, another driver will pick you up from the airport and deliver you to your hotel.
Australian model Miranda Kerr is just as excited as we are about this new offering from the Australian airline. As a regular traveler herself, Miranda is looking forward to taking advantage of Chauffeur Drive and has even been helping Qantas promote the new amenity to travelers in Los Angeles, one of Qantas' long-haul destinations.
