Tip of the Day: Email Your Photo, Obtain Photo of Chauffeur Assigned to Pick You Up At Airport

Like many of you who travel extensively, I have discovered that emailing a head-and-shoulders photo of yourself is an excellent way of ensuring that an assigned, vetted, dependable and reputable chauffeur picks you up at the airport. 

In turn, the photo of the driver that is scheduled to pick you up should be sent to you as well, so that you can both be looking for each other.

I recall from my days in Bogotá that a common tactic by local criminals was to dress as if they were a chauffeur, go the airport, write down the name of an arriving passenger and then go the front of the line of chauffeurs waiting for arriving passengers only to meet the passenger and rob them at gunpoint.
