Christmas Office Opening Hours

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Please read ahead for our Christmas office opening hours.

Firstly, we would like to thank all of our customers, old and new for supporting us and using our chauffeur driven services this year. We know that times have been challenging and indeed, unusual for most of us, however despite the struggles, Chauffeur VIP have been fortunate enough to continue serving customers from near, far and wide. 

Christmas is a time for appreciating loved ones and the people around us; we will be doing exactly that. Although the current restrictions won’t allow us to spend time with most of our loved ones, we will be using this festive period to think about the things that matter the most, whilst also looking forward to spending quality and well deserved time with our family and friends in the future. 

Again, we thank you for your continued custom, your feedback and your loyalty. Please see below our Christmas office opening times. If you do require last minute chauffeur driven services, please do get in touch with us directly via: info@chauffeur-vip.co.uk or give us a call on 0800 014 9222/0115 899 0410.

Helping students come home this Christmas

During these challenging times, Chauffeur VIP is here to transport your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews home in time for the festivities.

We understand that during the current health crisis, times are difficult for families and close friends, especially those with loved ones at university. As we are fast approaching the festivities, at Chauffeur VIP we are preparing to bring students home for Christmas, allowing families to reunite with their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Rest assured that our professional chauffeur drivers will follow all of the necessary guidelines to ensure that optimal safety is maintained throughout the duration of your loved one’s journey. After each transfer, Chauffeur VIP sanitise the vehicles, ready for the next passenger to simply sit back and relax during their travels. We have also introduced Perspex shields and an AirBubbl filtration system, ensuring that the health of our passengers is paramount. Alongside all of this, our prompt and experienced chauffeur drivers are also observing social distancing rules, further preventing the spread of COVID-19. 

Many students rely on public transport, such as buses and trains to return home for their university breaks, however the current health crisis has left some students looking for alternatives. So, why should students opt for a chauffeur driven service? Firstly, travelling with a chauffeur rather than public transport guarantees prime safety; as stated earlier, Chauffeur VIP are actively sanitising all vehicles after each transfer, meaning that students will not need to worry about who sat on the seat before them. Secondly, a chauffeur service allows you to truly relax alone, allowing for the ideal service for those who desire privacy and their ‘own space.’ Last, however not least, travelling with Chauffeur VIP will enable you to plan your journey ahead of time, whilst also factoring in refreshment breaks – this element is most favoured by students who live far away from their family homes. 

At Chauffeur VIP, we run a modern fleet of Mercedes vehicles, including the 6/7 seater Mercedes V Class, allowing you to take much of your belongings home with you this Christmas. Learn more about our fleet and COVID-19 policy or simply get in touch. 

For the Christmas period, we are also offering 15% of travel for students.

To Taxi or To Chauffeur?

Some of you may be wondering: ‘shall I book a taxi or a chauffeur;’ for some, it’s an easy answer, for others not so much. That’s why we’re here to discuss the difference between travelling with a taxi service and travelling with executive chauffeur services.  

Vehicles 

Both taxi firms and chauffeur businesses allow the passengers to travel from one destination to another, but the fleet of vehicles differ significantly. Most taxi companies operate a standard Toyota or a Vauxhall, however chauffeur businesses offer a more luxurious fleet of vehicles. For example, at Chauffeur VIP, we operate a fleet of young Mercedes vehicles, allowing passengers to indulge in luxury, sophistication and complete comfort. 

Suited & Booted Drivers 

Chauffeur driven services are complete with suited and booted drivers, providing a true professional experience for passengers. This is ideal for business travellers who are travelling to and from an important destination. 

Extensive Training

Chauffeur drivers will have undergone extensive training to ensure that optimal standards are met. From simple customer service skills to driving with professionalism, chauffeur drivers are well equipped with training to ensure the best level of service is delivered. 

Added Benefits 

With chauffeur driven services, you can expect refreshments, free WiFi and more, allowing you to completely relax no matter where you are going. At Chauffeur VIP we even provide passengers with films to watch during their journey – ultimate bliss!

Overall Service & Experience 

The overall service and experience when travelling with a chauffeur driven service differs to when travelling with a taxi firm. Taxi firms are often short for time and need to fulfil their next job soon after one transfer is complete. With Chauffeur VIP, we ensure that there is plenty of time for passengers to arrive at their destination with peace of mind, whilst helping them with their luggage and belongings. 

So, we leave you the question: to taxi or to chauffeur?

Safe, secure and COVID-19 proof travel with Chauffeur VIP

As the current situation with the global pandemic continues with a possible second wave coming our way, here at Chauffeur VIP we feel that it is important to inform you all of the precautions and safety measures we are taking to ensure safe travel with our chauffeur driven services. 

Our Mercedes V Class 

Popular for both business and personal chauffeur travel requirements, the Mercedes V Class provides optimal safety with its Perspex shield between the passenger/s and driver (1.5m distance between, allowing for perfect social distancing). Because of this added protection and its ability to provide social distancing measures, wearing a face mask is not obligatory, however passengers are free to wear a face mask if they wish. 

Our Mercedes E Class/Estates 

A Perspex shield between the driver and passenger/s is fitted across our Mercedes E Class Estates Because the shield leaves a distance of 1m between the driver and passenger, we strongly advise that passengers do wear a mask. Our chauffeur drivers will also be wearing a mask to ensure supreme safety and no passengers are permitted to sit on the front passenger seat of the vehicle. 

Our Mercedes Saloon cars 

Although our Mercedes saloons are not equipped with a Perspex shield, the inclusion of the AirBubbl expels 97% of virus bacteria droplets in the vehicle. However, we advise that even with the added filtration, that passengers do wear a mask for optimum safety. Passengers are not permitted to sit on the front passenger seat of the vehicle to ensure social distancing measures are not broken. 

Regardless of the vehicle and where you are going, our chauffeur drivers will be wearing gloves to open and shut all vehicle doors and where possible (with the Mercedes V Class), our chauffeur drivers will open and shut doors electronically. If required, our chauffeur drivers will also handle your luggage and will of course be wearing gloves when carrying out this task. 

After every journey, all vehicles are cleaned and sanitised, ensuring all handling and touch point surfaces are ready for use for following journeys.

Choosing the Perfect Wedding Transport

Wedding planning is never as simple as we expect it to be; venue hire, themes, food, outfits and of course… transport! We understand that sometimes, organising the right transport can be difficult, that’s why we have produced a five step guide for you to read and take note of. 

Whether your wedding venue is down the road or in a destination miles away, our chauffeur driven services are the perfect option for both bride and groom-to-be’s, allowing them to relax and truly enjoy their special day.  

Classic or Modern? To Horse & Carriage or Not? 

Some couples have a set theme for their wedding; you may have a vintage inspired location with a rustic and traditional feel or you may have a modern destination in mind with sleek decor, reflecting a contemporary design. Whatever the theme, it is always best to weigh up the best wedding transport for yourselves. Our classic car range such as The Royale, The Fiat 501S 1920 and The Daimler are popular options for many couples across the UK. However, some do also choose to arrive in our young fleet of Mercedes vehicles and perhaps a horse and carriage too. The options are indeed endless and there is nothing wrong with mixing it up with a combination of the three.

Book in Advance! 

Booking and planning for the wedding season typically begins in January (that’s if you’re choosing to walk down the aisle in the summer months), however we strongly recommend that once you have made a decision on the transport that you require, to book in advance. This way, you can focus on all of the finer details of your big day with peace of mind that you will be transported in style and luxury with our first class wedding chauffeur services. 

Get the Timings Right 

Because there is nothing worse than arriving at your wedding destination late, or in fact, too early! At Chauffeur VIP we will work closely with you to ensure that correct timings are adhered to, allowing you to sit back and relax whilst thinking about the exciting day ahead. 

Be Mindful of the Weather

For summer weddings, a convertible vehicle is an appealing option for many, that or a horse and carriage. However, with the unpredictability of great British weather, some do choose to opt for a vehicle that will ensure all weather conditions are catered for. Although you may be booking your wedding transport in advance with Chauffeur VIP, we will work with you and your requirements regardless of any changes – whether that be a change of vehicles or the need for more vehicles  

Don’t Forget Your Guests! 

We cannot stress enough how important it is to ensure that your guests also arrive in style. Whether it’s your bridesmaids, parents, groomsmen or your aunt who’s travelled across the globe for your all important day; transporting them in style and sophistication is key. Our Mercedes V Class has proven to be a popular option for a variety of weddings across the UK with its capacity to transport 6/7 people to the wedding destination for close family, or consider a London Bus to transport your friends and family! There’s an option for all requirements and tastes with Chauffeur VIP!
