What you should know about the limo industry in Europe:

Compared to corresponding companies in the USA, fleets in Europe are usually smaller and most providers operate in the VIP segment.

Predominantly vehicles of Mercedes Benz (S-Class, E-Class, V-Class) are used. These are supplemented by models from Audi and BMW. Luxury models, e.g. from Lancia and Peugeot, are also used regionally. The VW Multivan is also popular as a van for business trips.
SUVs are used much less in Europe than in the USA. They are occasionally part of the available fleets, but are not part of the standard program like sedans and vans.

Vehicle categories
There is an important difference in the common designation of vehicle categories. Types such as the S-Class and E-Class are referred to as ‘limousines’ in Europe. Suppliers from the USA should not be surprised if they book a “Business Sedan” to get a “Business Class Limousine” confirmed.
Vehicles that are usually referred to as “limousines” in the USA are usually referred to as “Stretch Limos” in Europe.
These vehicles are used almost exclusively for private purposes, such as bachelor parties, and are considered inappropriate for business travel.
Stretch limo rental is a completely separate business.

Even though the fleets of European companies are usually smaller than those of their counterparts in the U.S., the Europeans are very efficient even with large bookings and events. They are very well networked among themselves and cooperate very efficiently.

While established providers in the U.S. offer their systems nationwide, solutions in Europe are often only used in one language area because of the different languages.

US systems have not yet been able to establish themselves on a broad scale. On the one hand, their processes are only partially applicable to European ruquirements (e.g. invoicing), on the other hand, the use of these systems by companies based in the EU is a violation of the EU GDPR according to the current legal situation.
2S solutions are already in use in six different EU countries. Our solutions are multilingual and can be adapted to regional specifics.

Way of working
As the way of working is very much determined by national legal frameworks, it is hardly possible to define universal differences between the US and Europe as a whole.
However, one major difference seems to be in the monitoring of the execution of bookings. U.S. companies have often established processes that involve very close monitoring of the individual stages of booking execution. Calls to the operator or driver ensure that all steps of the process are monitored.
This approach is often met with a little incomprehension by European companies. In Europe, the self-image of the executing companies tends to be “If I accept a booking, I have responsibility for it and carry it out. If you don’t hear from me during the execution of the booking, it means that everything is running smoothly.”
In the age of digitalization, technology is helping to bridge “these two worlds” through, for example, automatic status notifications and the electronic transfer of booking data via GNet.

English is taught as the first foreign language in most schools in Europe. In business, many Europeans from different countries speak English among themselves.
In the limo industry you should have no problems with conversation in English.

Cologne and Dusseldorf are the most internationally known cities in a region that is usually called “the West” in Germany.
While Cologne was already one of the most important trading centers north of the Alps in Roman times, the region along the Ruhr River gained importance in the age of industrialization due to mining and steel mills.
Today, the region is a very densely populated industrial center with other cities such as Dortmund, Essen and Oberhausen.
