The French have Champagne; Italians, prosecco; Catalans, cava. And discerning Westchesterites? We have drivers. Leave the keys on the hook this holiday season, and let one of these vetted car services do the legwork on the way to—and from—your next festive gathering. It’s effortless, a little bit indulgent, and chicer than stashing a breathalyzer in your clutch.
Pull an all-nighter—the celebratory kind—and get whisked home by “Best of Westchester” winner Armonk Limousine (200 Business Park Dr, Armonk 914-273-4466; armonklimo.com), whose dispatchers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The family-owned business prides itself on helpful, friendly phone service and a fleet of elegant, late-model vehicles.
Named by The Knot as a “Best of Weddings” pick, Top Class Limousine (24 Ashburton Ave, Yonkers 914-423-5466; topclasslimo.com) has enjoyed more than 20 years of celebrity-carting success in Westchester, due in part to its experienced drivers who are carefully screened by the insurance company. The company’s diverse “what you see is what you get” vehicle selection includes everything from Town Cars to a limo-bus, a “30-passenger party on wheels.”
Recommended by corporate and private customers alike, Leros Point to Point (6 Skyline Dr, Hawthorne 914-747-2300; leroslimo.com) makes booking an hourly chartered chauffeur stress-free, with multiple destination options, plus online quotes, reservations, and electronic invoices. Leros’s clients can get the executive treatment in a classic Lincoln or a hybrid, luxury-brand SUV. A handicapped-accessible van is available as well.
For a red-carpet entrance (or to recreate the look and feel of one), ride in style with Eclipse Limousine (2233 Central Ave, Yonkers 914-771-5466; eclipselimousine.com), which has two locations, one in Southern and one in Northern Westchester. Seated in the back of a 1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud or a one-of-a-kind 2009 Excalibur, you’ll be tempted to refer to your tuxedo-clad chauffeur as Alfred, or at the very least, “good sir.”
Founded on personalized service, Harrison Car Service (71 Batavia Pl, Harrison 914-777-5466; harrisoncarservice.com) travels around Westchester and the tri-state area, escorting clients to the big event or a night out on the town. Owner Brendan Toohey offers flat rates into Manhattan from nearly every town in the county.
