How Having a Chauffeur Can Be Useful

Corporate or executive chauffeur car hire service operating in and around London. Offering reliable, luxurious and comfortable travel in our Mercedes fleet.

If, like me, you don’t own a car then you are probably thoroughly acquainted with public transport and its various disadvantages. My daily commute to work involves an hour long jaunt in the London Underground during peak hours which means a whole lot of wading through crowded platforms, standing in crowded carriages and enduring the stuffiness of said carriages. This is never a particularly fun experience and I will often find myself longing for a more pleasant and less confining alternative. The most perfect way to travel would be to have a personal chauffeur pick me up from my doorstep and take me all the way to work each and every day. While being driven I would be free to take a quick nap, or read a book while sat in a comfortable seat that’s always vacant. In fact, the use of chauffeur hire would bring countless benefits to my lifestyle in general. Here are a number of ways that having a chauffeur can benefit you.


Many of my friends already own a driver’s license and their own car. I find myself on the other end of the spectrum – carless and without a driver’s license after failing my exam four times in a row. I do aim to attempt the exam one day and finally get a prized driver’s license of my own but until then I will have to remain deprived of the fun and freedom that having a car affords. However if I had a chauffeur then I could reap the benefits of driving a car without having to do the actual driving. Many celebrities prefer to avoid driving cars themselves, preferring to use a chauffeur service instead. Russell Brand, for instance, only decided to take up driving lessons when he was 35 because he felt embarrassed that his wife at the time, Katy Perry, was driving him around everywhere. Up till then Brand frequently used a chauffeur, as have other celebrities who have refrained from driving such as Ricky Gervais and Robbie Williams.


Chauffeurs are specially trained in order to exemplify professionalism and reliability at all times and thus are a great choice for those moments when time is of the essence. By hiring a chauffeur to take you to the airport you can pretty much guarantee that you will catch your flight on time. Also, you can appoint a driver to take you home after your return flight. If your flight is delayed then a chauffeur will wait for you as long as it takes, and it’s always nice to see someone standing at the arrivals gate with a placard with your name on it. Chauffeurs are also usually well versed in evasive and defensive driving techniques so if you happen to be a VIP then you can rest assured that your driver will get you out of any potential sticky situations in a safe and efficient manner. Taxis can be unsafe and unreliable but the professionalism of chauffeurs means that you will always know where you stand.
