.. During these discussions at the Feb. 2008 XIII International Forum Dima and I concluded that conformity in the area of personal security is essential. Due to both of our qualifications of work within the top protective security agencies in the world we want to underline the importance of developing a "Global Standard" among our fellow security colleagues. Our experiences bring some of the foremost expertise in protection of some of the most powerful people in the world to include numerous world leaders and high profile individuals. Each of our former agencies provided not only the best protection available, but was able to do so consistently from one continent to another without much deviation from standard protocols. In order to achieve a standard on par with the agencies we were associated with it becomes essential that global development and universality of a specific level be implement to begin this task of cooperation among us professionals. If we are to reach a level of professionalism that lends itself to trust and understanding of our peers we must first start with consistence and uniformity among our training and hiring standards."

Dear colleagues, clients and friends
to be sure how limo service works in Russia we have to accept their following rules :
Limo service is different from the common taxi.
Limo car must be booked three-four days in advance to be certain.
So, preferably they need full working hours to plan their business. It is not a secret that they use the same car for another job even is it booked by one client if they have even two free hours...
So their basic conditions for the majority of Moscow companies are :
Limo delivery - 1 extra hour.
Minimum booking time - 6 hours. (including extra hour) Transfer to any airport - 4 hours. (including extra hour) In SPb this is 3 hours ( Pulkovo airport).
Note, if you book car not for transfer, but drive to airport they add extra hour to existed hours.
If there is a trip outside Moscow (across the ring road) - there is per mile payment.
At the end of the job overtime starts after 15 minutes.
It means that if we book a limo we have to pay at least for 4 hours if there is transfer and 6 hours if there is a city trip. Practically we can't refuse to use limo if this car was prebooked. For them it means a loss of income. That is the primary difference from taxi service.
From the beginning of this year for our primary partner to get payment by credit card is not suitable due to financial control regulations. For the future we have to add 15% if we will pay by credit card.
We also have a possibility to book armored BMW (new or old body ) B7.
Prices depends on visit conditions and personal dealing.
Basic taxi price in Moscow is Euro 25 per hour.
Sheremetjevo - Moscow transfer is from Euro 100 Domodedovo - Moscow transfer is from Euro 130 those prices depends on destination location.
Limo - Euro 60 per hour with driver
Volvo S80 - Euro 40-45 per hour with driver Mercedes Viano-Vito - Euro 50 per hour with driver Mercedes Sprinter minibus (17 seats) - Euro 50 with driver
Please note, for us it is not suitable to rent a car and do our job due to business particulars.
Practically there are not well spoken drivers in common car companies.
