For most ordinary people, having a chauffeur seems like a wild extravagance.
Why would you pay someone else to drive you around when you can do it yourself for free?
However, booking a chauffeur needn’t be indulgent or expensive. If you’re going on a city break or holiday in the UK or you’ll be travelling on business, having a driver can be both convenient and affordable if you know where to book. Here’s our guide to booking chauffeur-driven cars in the UK.
Hiring a chauffeur in London
Planning a trip to London? With a chauffeur-driven car, you’ll get to avoid the capital’s busy streets, cramped buses and frantic tube network. In fact, London looks beautiful by road, particularly at night and it’s home to the UK’s widest range of chauffeur-driven car services.
Book car hire and a chauffeur with iChauffeur and you’ll be driven along the Thames, past the London Eye and over Tower Bridge on your own personal tour. iChauffeur’s fleet consists of Bentley, Mercedes and Rolls-Royce vehicles, so you can be sure of a first-rate service. Booking on this site is easy too, as you can request quotes online, make a booking over the web or on the phone if you prefer to speak to an operator.
Central Chauffeur Services is another great company for booking chauffeur-driven cars in London. If you’re on a tight business schedule, for instance, book an airport transfer with Central Chauffeur Services to get to your meeting on time. If you hire your driver and car for the whole day, you can get to your meeting locations – and back to the airport – quickly and conveniently. Ultimately, your total fee could be cheaper than the cumulative cost of several taxis and express train fares to the airport.
London Prestige Chauffeur Services is worth having a look at too, especially if you’re travelling in a large group. Their fleet of chauffeur-driven cars includes the VW Transporter, which accommodates up to eight passengers, six suitcases and six items of hand luggage. So it’s ideal if you’re looking for a handy and cost-effective way of getting to and from a London airport. And don’t miss out on London Chauffeur UK either: with this company, you get a 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied and a 10% discount off your first journey if you join their VIP rewards club.
UK-wide chauffeur services
Of course, London isn’t the UK’s only city to offer chauffeur services. PCS have chauffeur-driven cars to hire across the UK and are particularly suitable for business customers. They also have a range of chauffeured cars available to hire for weddings, including the luxury Mercedes S Class and Jaguar XF.
Elsewhere, Go Chauffeur is one of the UK’s best-rated companies for chauffeured vehicle rental. Chauffeur cars are available from as little as £45 per hour (with a three hour minimum booking), and pick-ups can be arranged from nearly every major county in England.
Alternatively, choose Little’s for luxury chauffeur-driven tours of Scotland. With their help, you can tailor-make your itinerary to include a range of great Scottish activities, from whisky tours to golf breaks. And with your own chauffeur in tow, you can relax and enjoy your holiday without worrying about travel.
