Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) Ground Transportation To And From Pinehurst Area

Pinehurst, NC – Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) Airport Ground Transportation Pricing – New! Effective  April 8th 2012 All-Points Personal Transportation (www.all-pointsnc.com) and All-Points Personal Transportation of Pinehurst (www.pinehurstairportshuttle.com)  will offer new pricing for our direct service to and from the greater Pinehurst area and Raleigh-Durham International airport.

Our Standard Services: In addition to being on-time for every reservation no matter the hour of the day we do not have any hidden fees or charges. Our pricing is transparent and guaranteed. Our pricing was set when fuel was $2.20 per gallon and due to the fluctuations in fuel prices we added a fuel surcharge which floats up and down with the price of fuel. Unlike our competitors we do not raise our base rates when fuel prices increase and ‘forget’ to lower them when prices drop. We do not automatically add a gratuity either. Our staff earns their gratuities every day by providing the highest level of service and this is a fairly significant portion of their earnings. It also provides us with an additional metric to monitor their commitment to client service. If they are not providing the absolute highest level of service they do not work for All-Points. Contact us at 1-877-836-9905.

 

  • All RDU Airport arrivals are met personally by your driver. The driver will be at the security exit with a sign bearing your name or the name of your group, company, or event. There is no extra charge for this service – personal service is our hallmark.
  • Guests do not need to call us upon arrival. As we track your flight using multiple real-time flight-tracking services we know when you will arrive before you do. You only need to call us if you miss your flight or change your flight.
  • Your driver will assist in carrying your bags to the vehicle.
  • The vehicle will be parked out of the elements to assure your comfort.
  • Bottle water service and personal moistened cotton hand towels await you. (These were once standard in First Class on the airlines you might recall!)
  • Complimentary use of 4G iPad to make the most of your time – please let us know if you would like this service when making your reservation.
  • If your bags are delayed when arriving we do not charge waiting time.
  • Service is provided for groups of all sizes arriving and departing at different times – the more complex your event the more reason to trust All-Points to deliver seamless personal service.
  • If you or your guests would like a special beverage to make the journey more comfortable please ask. We are in the business of fulfilling every clients’ special needs – just ask and it shall be done!

 

Standard Pricing: Our rates are determined by vehicle type, distance to the destination, and anticipated time en-route. Should conditions dictate that we send a more expensive vehicle there is no additional charge of course. Compare these rates to those offered by Pinehurst Resort Private Airport Transportation or any other service provider please! Contact us at 1-877-836-9905.

New Military Discount Airport Transportation – North Carolina

Effective April 7th All-Points Personal Transportation (www.all-pointsnc.com)  will be launching our new Discounted Armed Forces rate structure for travel between Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), Fort Bragg, Seymour Johnson AFB, and the greater Jacksonville area (Camp Lejeune, Camp Geiger, MCAS New River, Camp Johnson).  Please continue reading to understand how we operate, and why we are really the only choice for ground transportation.

Why Us? :

  • We are on-time every time, we pick you up and drop you off at your address, NOT the main gate which means you do not have to take another taxi (unlike our competitors who tell you they go to a particular base – what they do not tell you unless you ask is that they are going to drop you at the Main Gate! For those going to Camp Lejeune you need to know that it is 22 miles from the Main Gate to Courthouse Bay for example. That’s a long hump after a 2 ½ hour trip in our clean and safe vehicles).
  • Our drivers speak English as their first language, they are dressed in a suit and tie, they carry your bags, and they are there to serve you: you serve our country, we serve you. It is our pleasure to serve you, so don’t feel bad when you see one of our drivers carrying your bags please!
  • Our vehicles are new, clean, meticulously maintained, and we even have seat belts for every passenger! We do not crowd you in the vehicle – we load it for safety and comfort. So, if there are 4 of you traveling with 3 bags each the Suburban will be full. If there are 6 of you on a 96 with one bag each you can ride in the Suburban in comfort.
  • We know that you sometimes find yourselves low on funds so we have devised a plan to help minimize the impact on your wallet. You may pay 50% of the fare when you book your reservation, 25% on the next payday, and the final 25% on the next payday. You must pay with your debit card, not a credit card.
  • Any doubts? Ask the USO  – we take care of our Armed Forces personnel like no one else.

Make a Reservation:

  • In order to accommodate all passengers in a timely and guaranteed manner you must make an advanced reservation. Please do so as soon as you book your airline tickets. This will guarantee you a seat as well as allow us to aggregate other troops going to the same location at the same time. Our objective is to lower the cost per person and this approach helps – in the past 6 months we have dropped the per-person fare by $15.00! Call 919-836-9900 to make your reservation.

Rates:

  • RDU to/from Seymour Johnson AFB: $150.00 for the vehicle, or $60 per person whichever is greater. At $150.00 we do not make a profit but are willing to lose money on some trips and make it up on other trips. All in all this allows us to continue to drive down the cost per head.
  • RDU to/from Fort Bragg area: $150.00 for the vehicle, or $60 per person whichever is greater. At $150.00 we do not make a profit but are willing to lose money on some trips and make it up on other trips. All in all this allows us to continue to drive down the cost per head.
  • RDU to/from MCAS Cherry Point: $290.00 for the vehicle or $70.00 per person whichever is greater. At $290.00 we do not make a profit but are willing to lose money on some trips and make it up on other trips.
  • RDU to/from Camp Lejeune, Camp Geiger, Camp Johnson, MCAS New River: $290.00 for the vehicle or $70.00 per person whichever is greater. At $290.00 we do not make a profit but are willing to lose money on some trips and make it up on other trips.

Important(!):

  • Remember that we drop you right at your door so please confirm the address you are going to. If you cannot please let us know and we will find out for you.
  • Book your reservation as soon as you have your flight information. This allows us to book the next caller on your reservation which immediately drops the per person rate!
  • Please be sure to let us know how many bags you will have – this makes a difference on how many passengers we can comfortably accommodate.
  • We provide receipts for all transportation. While you normally do not get reimbursed for travel when on leave, you DO get reimbursed for virtually all other travel so be sure to keep your receipt and turn it is so you get reimbursed!
  • Please tell your friends and family about us. The greater the number of people we provide service to the sooner we can lower the cost per person. Ideally we would like to see the cost under $50.00 per person.
  • You can count on us to get you where you are going on-time, in comfort, and safely. Call us and we will help in any way we can.Another Hero

A Short Story Worth Remembering

The Sack Lunch

I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be a long flight. ‘I’m glad I have a good book to read. Perhaps I will get a short nap,’ I thought.

Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation.

‘Where are you headed?’ I asked the soldier seated nearest to me.

‘Petawawa. We’ll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we’re being deployed to Afghanistan

After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for five dollars. It would be several hours before we reached the east, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time…

As I reached for my wallet, I overheard a soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch. ‘No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch. Probably wouldn’t be worth five bucks. I’ll wait till we get to base.’

His friend agreed.

I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty dollar bill. ‘Take a lunch to all those soldiers.’ She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me. ‘My son was a soldier in Iraq ; it’s almost like you are doing it for him.’

Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, ‘Which do you like best – beef or chicken?’

‘Chicken,’ I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class.

‘This is your thanks..’

After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room.

A man stopped me. ‘I saw what you did. I want to be part of it. Here, take this.’ He handed me twenty-five dollars.

Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he was not looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane. When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand and said, ‘I want to shake your hand.’ Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain’s hand. With a booming voice he said, ‘I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness I never forgot.’ I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers.

Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm.

When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another twenty-five dollars!

Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base.

I walked over to them and handed them seventy-five dollars. ‘It will take you some time to reach the base.. It will be about time for a sandwich.

God Bless You.’

Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow travelers.

As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their safe return. These soldiers were giving their all for our country. I could only give them a couple of meals. It seemed so little…

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America ‘ for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’

That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.’

Yelp Raleigh

I had a chance yesterday to spend some time with the local YELP marketing coordinator, Christina. YELP is growing and is now in over 37 cities. I would suggest you check it out, register, and share your thoughts on your favorite and not so favorite businesses. It’s a great vehicle to have your voice heard, help businesses that you would like to see stay in business and get those that don’t have clue out of the picture – life’s to short and money is too tight to waste it on a crummy service provider. Hey, wait, did I mention vehicle? We had the Interns in yesterday to detail the entire fleet – nice job gentlemen. Love that new car smell. (You forgot to RainEx the windows).

Our clients really dig our vehicles – clean, comfortable, safe. Try it – you’ll like it.
