So what exactly are the other advantages of a private car service over an Uber?

A personalized experience

We are offering a range of private car service options to cater to various business or personal needs, including options for scheduled rides, airport pickups, group transportation, and more. Your possibilities are endless when you hire a professional, so let Kaptyn handle all of your transportation needs.

Convenience

With Kaptyn, you can easily track, monitor, and analyze bookings so you can make better decisions and optimize your experience. You’ll be able to keep track of your rides through our website every step of the way. You’ll also be provided with a dashboard that allows you to edit or cancel rides easily and allows you better control over all of your trips.

If you’re wondering, ‘Can I keep the vehicle longer if I run out of time I reserved?’ This will depend on whether the driver has an upcoming reservation. If the driver does not have an upcoming reservation, you can advise your driver that you would like to extend your reservation time. We’ll be happy to work with you to meet all of your needs!

Reliability

Kaptyn guarantees efficient transportation by promptly connecting you with our drivers to reach your destination. If you are flying in, we’ll be there to pick you up before your plane lands. Not sure where to go to meet your chauffeur? No problem. We allow easy access to connect you directly to the driver so you can have an effortless pickup every time.

Cost transparency

We have introduced stress-free roundtrip reservations for airports, events, and everyday journeys. All you need to do is book online, provide the pickup and drop-off address, and select the dates. We also offer one-way trips, and you can book hourly. No matter your needs, we have options available for you.

Once you’ve entered your details, you can see our available rides and pricing. We offer transparent pricing, including taxes, tips, tolls, and potential overage fees, so there are no surprises.

Also, we understand things come up, and plans change. To provide the highest level of customer service and maximum availability to all of our customers, we have a 24-hour cancellation notice policy. All cancellations made within the 24-hour window to pickup time will be 100% non-refundable.

Value

We offer specials on roundtrip airport transfers. You can travel to and from Harry Reid International Airport (LAS), as well as explore the sights and sounds of Las Vegas. Whether you need to get to your hotel, attend a conference, or enjoy a night out on the town, our professional chauffeurs will take you there in style and comfort.

The best part of booking with a private car service is that you get a private driver experience. Each Kaptyn journey is designed to feel effortless, allowing you to relax, be productive, or reconnect. Personalized, professional service is what sets us apart from rideshares.

Here at Kaptyn, we ensure:

  • Professionally trained drivers
  • Ongoing background checks
  • Randomized drug and alcohol screenings
  • 5-star hospitality training for concierge-level service

With our user-friendly technology, new electric fleet, and professionally trained drivers, you can rely on us to deliver a consistently elevated guest experience.

Privacy and safety

You may be wondering how we go about hiring our drivers. We can assure you we follow protocols to ensure your safety. This includes:

  • Comprehensive interviews
  • Covid vaccination requirement
  • Pre-employment drug test
  • Review of motor vehicle driver's license report
  • Federal fingerprint criminal background check
  • Department of Transportation medical certification

In addition, all Kaptyn Drivers are required to conduct daily vehicle safety inspections. Kaptyn has a regulated and strictly adhered-to vehicle preventative maintenance program.

Kaptyn prioritizes safety, with thorough driver screenings and vehicle inspections. Your safety, security, and peace of mind is our top priority. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the comfortable ride.

Entry and exit assistance

Our expertly trained chauffeurs are committed to providing first-class service, ensuring your journey is smooth, safe, and hassle-free. We’ll meet you on the ground before your plane lands or pick you up directly if you’re already in the area. Booking with us roundtrip ensures we’ll have you at your destination well before you’re needed, so you don’t risk running late. Your comfort is our top priority, so we deliver stress-free limo service and make sure you arrive on time and in style.

If you’re flying into a private airport, as long as Kaptyn receives a tail number, your driver will meet you on the tarmac in front of the plane.

Gate monitoring for airport drop off

The advantages of private transportation include monitoring your flight schedule. We coordinate with the drivers to ensure you reach your destination on time, even in the event of a flight delay.

When you provide us with your flight information (airline and flight number), our technology tracks your flight automatically and adjusts the pickup time accordingly based on delays or early arrivals.

Comfort and style of a luxury ride

We offer a diverse range of vehicles to suit your every need. From sleek sedans to spacious, luxury SUVs, we have something for everyone, especially when you need room for carrying luggage. Whether you’re traveling solo or with a large group, we’ll make sure you arrive at your destination comfortably and on time. Choose your ride today and experience the convenience of hassle-free airport transfers.
