NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Paying for a car service ride in the New York metropolitan area just became faster and easier. Carmel Car and Limousine Service, the largest limousine service in the world, announced today their passengers can simply swipe their credit card to pay for their trip.

"We have eliminated the need to call in your credit card number to the phone operator, expediting the reservation making process," said Dr. Avik Kabessa, Chief Executive Officer of Carmel Car and Limousine Service. "Being a New York City's transportation icon, it was only natural for us to be the first car service to offer the credit card swipe in the car. Our passengers simply 'Swipe and Go,' it's as easy as that," added Kabessa.

The "Swipe and Go" program saves on the time it takes to make a reservation with Carmel, saves on the time it takes to pay for the trip, and saves time by not waiting for a receipt to be issued. The receipt is emailed and/or texted to the passengers, aiding them in keeping track of their business travel expenses.

Carmel's "Swipe and Go" philosophy is yet another example how the company strives to stay one step ahead of their competition in every conceivable way. "Our customers love it. The program is currently being put in Carmel operations in other cities as well and soon the Carmel network of 4,800 affiliated vehicles will feature this added benefit to our passengers," said David Friedman, Chief Operating Officer of Carmel Worldwide.
