    Are the perks worth the cash? Depends on the perks and the amount of cash :)

    My in-laws made their first trip to Asia in April for a cruise, I had them met on arrival at SIN by JetQuay. SIN is the easiest airport imaginable and yet for their first trip I wanted everything handled, And booking through the Intercontinental it was about half the cost of going through JetQuay directly, SGD$150 for buggy pickup at the gate through private immigration in the JetQuay terminal and Mercedes transfer to the hotel. No brainer.

    Though I much prefer when my VIP services are included in the award ticket :D

    Nice article. It even has an MP member in it :)

    I'm debating on whether I should use such service when I go to BKK end of next month. The price is very reasonable and it's nice not to have long waits at immigration, and in BKK the lines can be horrendous.
