World Tourism Day

Posted On: September 27, 2013

World Tourism Day


 

 

September 27th is World Tourism Day.   Since 1980 the United Nations World Tourism Organization has celebrated World Tourism Day.  The purpose of this international event is to raise awareness on the role of tourism within the international community and to demonstrate its impact on the intricate economic, political and cultural values internationally.  Since 1997 a theme and host country is chosen, this year the theme is tourism and water and the host country is Zimbabwe.

 

The importance of World Tourism Day is not to be under emphasized.  The underlying motivation for this event is too show us that we are all connected and that we all rely on one another, the main focus is awareness.  For us as human beings we need to not look at those across the oceans as different or as belonging to another country, we need to look at them as brothers and sisters we need to look at one another as part of the universal collective as part of one species.  Tourism helps us learn about each other as well as bring much needed revenue to certain parts of the world, the theme (for example water and tourism this year) helps to open the eyes of the world to the plights of our neighbors.

 

So plan a visit to London or too Zimbabwe, go somewhere you never knew existed, experience the world, its people and all it has to offer.  As different as things are across the globe we are all connected we are all human beings who live, breath eat and love.  This September 27th celebrate national world tourism day!

All Star Limousine and the United Nations

All Star Limousine and the United Nations


 

 

Traffic in New York City is always crazy.  Drivers are aggressive, the roads are congested and everyone is in a rush.  These variables make it tough to operate an executive car service but a properly equipped one with the right vehicles the right technology and the right staff can make it happen, now factor in a scenario where you have something like the United Nations in town and it’s a whole different ballgame.

 

For the next two weeks most roads will be inaccessible to cars and trucks and even to those on bicycles.  The roads and routes that become blocked or shut down vary daily based on the UN and its delegates.  The security for this NYC United Nations Assembly is air tight as well it should be, but this means serious gridlock for most of midtown Manhattan.  For the most part if you are looking to get around in NYC for the next couple of weeks either take the subway or use an executive car service like All Star Limousine.  A good executive car service will be fully aware of the all the road closures and alternate routes that are put into place during the UN’s General Assemblies. 

 

It can cause serious havoc when the UN comes to town so be prepared.  Use mass transit or contract a good executive car service because many of the streets are generally shut down.  With the right equipment, knowledge and proper communication, travel can be arranged and business will continue.  Just be sure you deal with a reputable and experienced company, as the next two weeks can be pure chaos.

An All Star Wedding

An All Star Wedding


 

It’s great when two people find one another.  In today’s day and age it seems that it has become harder and harder to find love or to find that special someone.  That is why when two wonderful people find each other it is a cause for celebration.  This past weekend the Safety and Worldwide Manager of All Star Limousine, Tony Savarese, wed Linda Erdman the love of his life.  They invited their friends and co-workers, their children and family and were married this past Saturday Sept. 21st.

 

Part of what makes the limousine industry so worthwhile is putting a smile on people’s faces.  You find this in lots of service industries but for us we are privileged to experience individuals enjoying the most important days of their lives.   The vehicles never fail to disappoint and the wedding chauffer’s we employ are consummate professionals, they never let us down. 

 

When you can combine that service and accommodate a member of the team its incredible.  This weekend a manager of All Star Limousine married his true love and All Star was privileged and honored to be a part of this most momentous occasion both as guest, as friends and as a provider of service.  Thank you Tony and Linda we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness you deserve nothing less!

Top 5 Things To Do On Long Island In The Summer Time

Posted On: September 24, 2013

Top 5 Things To Do On Long Island In The Summer Time


 

 

New York Long Island is a place unlike any other.  With a major metropolis to the west, verdant wine country to the east and beautiful beaches everywhere in between it might be tough for an out-of-towner to know just where to begin.  It is in the interest of tourism that we have decided to highlight five of the best things to do on Long Island during the summer months.  Although we have seen the end of this season keep these things in mind for next year.

 

1)   Visit Long Island North Fork Vineyards.  With over 40 booming wineries and vineyards our east Long Island wine country is an unbelievable experience.   Wineries like Long Island's Pindar or vineyards like Baiting Hollow Farms the North Fork wineries offer something for everyone.  Raphael, Laurel Lake, Bedell, Pellegrini and Pugliese are only a few of the more prominent venues out there.  The North Fork isn’t all about guzzling fine wines however, there are a variety of different shops and establishments that dot the country side; places like Vines and Branches and Briermere farms offer home made culinary delights that some claim to be the best in the country.

 

2)   The beaches.  So if you have never been to Long Island then you need to visit our incredible beaches, some of which wont remind you of tropical paradise but most of them are far nicer then any other on the east coast.  Jones beach, The Hamptons and Montauk Point have arguably the greatest waves for you would be surfers and offer different venues sand side.  But really any town you go to you wont be further then a half hour from sand and surf.

 

3)   Sight Seeing.  There is a lot going on in Long Island Suburbia, from concerts at the beach to various celebration in individual town ships to the plethora of shopping malls there is always something to do.  Head down to one of the many world renowned golf courses or witness a famous long island wedding.  Even if there isn’t the geography of the island is beautiful and varied, lush woodlands open upon vast pristine lakes and cliff side beaches offer a breathtaking view of the oceans or the sound.  Check out

 

4)   NYC.  So okay heading into New York City isn’t exactly a seasonal thing but if you’re here visiting its almost a requirement that you head into Manhattan for at lest one night.  Be warned however NYC is not for the faint of heart or the slow of pace, it is a bustling, vibrant metropolis that has obtained the moniker “The City That Never Sleeps” for good reasons.

 

5)   Outdoor dining in the summer time.  So one of my personal favorite things to do when the weathers nice is sit in the sun and have a glass of wine or a fine meal.  Not fast food or pizza but culinary excellence prepared by Zagat rated chefs in restaurants that rival the worlds best.  The blue sky, shining sun and gentle breezes are indescribably conducive to fine dining.  Long Island has an impressive list of excellent eateries that even a native long islander will never have the time to fully explore.

The Corporate Travel Department

The Corporate Travel Department (3 Important Skills for any Travel Manager)

 


 

If you hold the title of travel manager you may have a tougher job then most may give you credit for.  The title of travel manager is somewhat new but in todays fast paced society it is absolutely necessary for any company that has any type of travel needs to either have an individual, and if needs are great enough, an entire department dedicated to handling all a companies logistical needs.  Years ago a companies procurement department, the department responsible for obtaining any services or goods that the company may require, was responsible for handling the travel needs for the company but often times that is a recipe for disaster. 

 

A procurement department is concerned primarily with one thing, the budget.  Whatever is the cheapest way to go is the direction that the procurement department heads in.  This is where you will find online bidding for services and all types of haggling and negotiations.  Now that may be fine when it comes to buying 10,000 pens or reams of white paper, but not when executive car service and or air and ground logistics are concerned.  Executive car services that can offer a low price point are not properly reinvesting their revenue back into the business.  Car service and limousine service is not cheap.  If you are looking for inexpensive ground transportation use a black car company or a cab service.  That is not intended to sound haughty or arrogant it is the truth, this is an industry where you get what you pay for.

 

The corporate travel department needs to have a solid understanding of their budget and the current and upcoming cost of travel in order to properly do their jobs.  Gas prices and airline costs change monthly and from region to region it is important to be aware of these variations.  The travel manager needs to be organized, they need to have a complete schedule for all upcoming transfers and they need to be on top of any last minute changes or fluctuations in that schedule.  Most importantly (and this is the case with many positions) they need to be able to communicate properly and effectively.  Communication is necessary for success in any travel department because things move quickly and there are a myriad of variables that can affect even the most meticulously planned travel schedule.  The travel department needs to be on top of all these changes and variations and then they need to be able to communicate properly to the correct person or persons these changes and the significance of them.

 

The corporate travel manager is not an easy job.  There is much to take into consideration and many variables to account for and often when things beyond your control throw a wrench into the works you will be the one doing damage control.  A proper understanding of the travel industry, a good head for budgeting and a knack for communication will contribute to the recipe for success for any travel department in any industry.
