This review is for Perq Soleil, a Washington, DC-based airport meet & assist service which Debbie and I used for a recent trip from DC to Minneapolis. This thoughtful and unobtrusive service allowed us to enjoy our trip without all the niggly details of contemporary air travel.
Perq Soleil arranged for a car and driver to pick us up at our apartment and take us to the airport where a Perq Soleil agent met us at the curb. She presented us with our boarding cards, and a waiting porter tagged our one piece of checked luggage and checked it in at the curb for us. She also secured a wheelchair and wheelchair assistant so I wouldn’t have to navigate the terminal using my cane.
The agent escorted us quickly through the security checkpoint and then, since our flight was delayed, to the Delta Airlines Club where we relaxed until she returned to accompany us to our gate for boarding.
When we arrived in Minneapolis, a Perq Soleil agent greeted us at the gate together with a wheelchair assistant. We were escorted to baggage claim and, after we collected our bag, a driver (also arranged by Perq Soleil) met us at the curb and took us to our hotel.
Coming back to Washington was just as smooth. Perq Soleil provided both departure service from Minneapolis and arrival service at Reagan National. It could not have been easier.
If I were still traveling as much as I used to, I could see myself using this service often, especially for international flights, where support like that would mitigate or eliminate the all-too-common stress points of foreign travel.
Perq Soleil services can be arranged on their website www.perqsoleil.com, by email to email@example.com, or by phone at (202) 573-7705.
