Frederick, MD., April 28, 2018 – Carey International, Inc., the leading provider of innovative chauffeured service solutions, customer-centric travel technology, and ground transportation logistics management, announced today, that it has earned the 2018 Women’s Choice Award® as America’s Most Recommended™ Chauffeur Services based on a national survey distributed to tens of thousands of women across America who were asked to select the brands that they would highly recommend to their family and friends.
Carey International’s recognition by female consumers is significant as women increasingly look to their peers when buying a product or service. Studies show that over 90% of female consumers value the opinion of others when making purchasing decisions. And according to MediaPost, when it comes to online opinions or recommendations, women consumers cited firsthand experience from verified purchasers as the top signals that they can trust a recommendation.
“More than ever before, women have tremendous power to elevate the brands that have earned their confidence and trust,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “Our seal is validation that women can expect excellence from Carey International, without wasting valuable time researching on their own.”
“For more than 95 years, Carey has never wavered in its commitment to uncompromising standards of safety and reliability, and because of that hard work, we are humbled to receive this coveted honor,” said Sally Snead, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer of Carey International. “In a day and age when travelers tend to know less and less about the car they climb into or who is behind the wheel, Carey strives to execute an exhaustive preventative maintenance regimen on each vehicle in its world-class fleet and employs a rigorous combination of background checks and vetting processes for all of its chauffeurs and drivers.”
Among the distinctive characteristics exhibited by Carey International to assure passenger safety and peace of mind, include maintaining an unmatched 99.99% safety record, which is supported by a ground transportation industry-leading $20,000,000 automobile liability insurance coverage package on every trip—in more than 1,000 cities worldwide. Snead concluded, “Whether it is a group of women traveling in Munich on leisure or the lone female business executive closing deals in Manhattan, Carey is proud to be considered a trusted chauffeured transportation provider for discerning female travelers worldwide who value the highest expectations of service delivery in ground transportation.”
Passi noted the significance in appealing to women as consumers now that they control 51% of wealth, according to the BMO Wealth Institute.
“Carey International understands how to develop a positive customer journey for women and what is most important to their lives,” said Passi. “We congratulate Carey International for their focus on delivering a superior experience to their female consumers.”
