Together with us you save a lot of time by not having to use the public transportation.  Our comfortable Mercedes-Benz fleet offers you plenty of space for luggage and yourself.

For this mission, we can highly suggest all types of our cars. That being said, the Mercedes-Benz S-class is your best choice for 1-3 passengers with little luggage who truly enjoy traveling in a luxurious and high-grad limousine. Honestly there is just nothing better than the back seats of a Mercedes-Benz S-class (see our full description of our cars under the fleet section). Next up is the Mercedes-Benz V-class (formerly known as the Viano), which is our favorite when it comes down to group transportation or larger families with say 5-7 passengers and with plenty of luggage. The new V-class performs and feels almost like a sedan, which is truly amazing. Finally there is the incomparable Mercedes-Benz E-class. This sedan makes up a big part of our fleet, which speaks for itself. It can load a lot of luggage by not compromising on any driving quality.

We beginn to work, as soon as we get your arrival and/or departure details. Our planning takes every aspect into consideration as the current traffic and weather situation. This way we can assure that you arrive in time to your flight. That’s why we track your flight and contact the airport/handling agent for private plane arrivals. Your driver is perfecly informed about your arrival and yourself, hence you are in very good hands. Our driver always checks the car, cleans it from the in- and outside and equips the vehicle with water (Evian), newspapers for your pleasure as well as - if needed - child seats, special food and beverage items and more. The driver departs on time, so that he can get into position. If needed, he can clean the car from the outside, this way you arrive in complete style!

Your driver waits right after the luggage claim at the appropriate Terminal for you with a name board and a warm welcoming smile. You instantly feel like you just arrived at your second home. He proceeds by helping you with all of your luggage and brings you to the car. The time the luggage is loaded and you took place in the comfortable seats, your delighting journey starts.

After some kilometers on the Swiss Autobahn (motorway) you arrive at the fancy Mövenpick petrol station.
