Posted on July 14, 2010 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

Carmel Car and Limousine Service recently started a high tech service that allows travelers to use their gadgets to get price quotes, reserve a limo, and receive confirmations in one visit.

NEW YORK — Carmel Car and Limousine Service, a black car provider in New York City, recently enabled BlackBerry, iPhone, and iPad users to go online to www.CarmelLimo.com to conduct their transportation business.

Carmel CEO Avik Kabessa claims Carmel is the only black car and limousine company to offer this unique, state-of-the-art capability. No downloading of an application is needed for customers to access prices, make reservations, get confirmations, and check their status.

Carmel provides on-time pick up capabilities through its reservation and dispatch systems. It has been offering on-time, 24/7, luxury service for more than 30 years.

"We are very excited about the implementation of our new time saving BlackBerry, iPhone, and iPad technology as a way of organizing the world of travel so that our customers don't have to deal with it," said Kabessa in a statement. "When you book your trip with Carmel, you are making a statement that says 'I want a company I can trust, my time is valuable and I need impeccable service, a business that can provide back up to all possible situations, a company who will be there for me and that will give me added value for my dollars spent.'"

Carmel's ground transportation clients include Orbitz, IBM, Priceline, Cheaptickets, Southwest Airlines, iSeatz, Delta Air Lines, Air Canada, Northwest Airlines, and American Express Select.
