A month back Red and Blue Car Travels, who call themselves a boutique luxury car rental company approached me to evaluate their services. And I did get a chance when I stopped over in Mumbai for a day to meet family and friends enroute from Nairobi to Bangalore. It was decided well in advance that I will get to evaluate their services when I land at the Mumbai international airport and that they would drop me to my destination of choice in Mumbai city. I had totally forgotten about this arrangement while I was away and hence was pleasantly surprised when on landing at Mumbai I saw a text message that said that a Toyota Innova was waiting for me along with the driver details.
Now, you might be thinking what is so special about this arrangement. There are a whole lot of travels out there that offer great service in good vehicles (Toyota Innova included). That is what I also thought till I met the Red and Blue Car Travel’s representative holding my name placard at the airport exit section.
First, the driver was well dressed and very well mannered. He greeted me, took my baggage and led me to the Toyota Innova Car. It was only when I entered the car that I realized that RnB is indeed a luxury car service provider. The car had excellent leather upholstery that made seating very luxurious. It had an excellent sound system that was controlled by an iPad that was lying next to me. The iPad was already pre-loaded with a decent collection of Hindi and English songs. The car had wi-fi, which I could use to browse through the iPad. And the best part was individual TV screens for each seat that could be used to watch movies, play games and more. Now, all these put together accounted for some serious luxury. This kind of service is for the luxury connoisseur, one who likes to splurge and indulge and may be who is accustomed to that kind of lifestyle.
That was the tangible side of luxury. The thing that I really liked was the way the driver was driving through the traffic of Mumbai. Over 40 odd kilometers, he honked may be once. Now, that was something new for me as all cab drivers honk more than normal drivers. And driver quite rashly, but the RnB driver drove so well that I hardly felt a swerve or turn during the entire drive. Now that is luxury in my mind, which promises you safety and peace of mind.
That was my overall experience! Keeping my experience aside, RnB cars have some high-end cars, such as the Mercedes sedans, Range Rovers, Audi Q7, Mini Countryman, BMW Luxury Sedans and more in their stable. I am sure the luxury in these cars will be un-paralled. My driver informed me that RnB is primarily based out of Mumbai, but they do take their clients to destinations such as Pune, Shirdi and Goa.
I was extremely pleased with my RnB experience and given an opportunity, I will avail their services again. If you love luxury and need a ride in Mumbai, I think you should look at RnB cars.
