One of the major benefits of basing your business in a major city is that there’ll be no shortage of chauffeur services available to provide you with the corporate travel solution that you need. Even if you’re not a business and you’re an individual, there’s a number of options available when it comes to enjoying high-class travel in luxury cars, often driven by your own personal chauffeur.

The car that you arrive in and the chauffeur who drives it will create a lasting first impression, so it’s important that the service you do choose creates the exact kind of image that you’re looking for.

If you’re looking to find a chauffeur service that does just this, here are some things to consider when deciding.

The vehicles

Should you be on your way to an important business meeting, a corporate conference or an exclusive VIP event, there’s nothing more certain to create that memorable first impression than the vehicle that you choose to travel there in. It goes without saying that when you’re choosing a chauffeur service for any of those occasions, one of the first things that you’ll want to consider is the actual choice of vehicles that are available to you.

When it comes to style and sophistication, you may want to opt for something like a premium model, or if it’s extravagance and cool, an exhilarating sports car is the choice for you. Either way it’s important that you take the time to browse the company and their fleet of chauffeured vehicles.

The Mercedes-Benz V-Class is very popular nowadays too, more so than most chauffeur driven cars. The V-Class offers many benefits to those traveling within it, including:

  • Very spacious and luxurious with room for many passengers without feeling like you are crammed in.
  • Comfortable seats mean you won’t feel every single little bump in the road.
  • The V-Class offers a huge amount of room for luggage. So, you don’t have to worry about the amount of luggage that you are taking with you on your journey.
  • The V-Class chauffeur driven vehicles that we provide are perfect for anyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re alone, with a small group of friends and family, or a larger group.
  • Suitable for any event, the V-Class oozes luxury and style. Whether it’s a business meeting or transport to the airport, you’ll feel at home in our Mercedes-Benz V-Class MPVs.

Training and professionality

When it comes to chauffeuring top quality car models should come with a quality chauffeur, one that has skills and the necessary know-how to make sure that you’re treated to the VIP treatment that you deserve when taking our chauffeur hire service.

The firm that you have chosen should have carried out a complete background check on their chauffeurs and private drivers. This is to ensure your peace of mind and also that they’ve carried out their own in-house training to make sure that the driver is professional as well as punctual.

Maintenance standards

Making sure that having the right car among their fleet is no guarantee, a vehicle in exceptional condition is needed to ensure a good impression. There’s no point in arriving in a swanky vehicle that doesn’t glisten on the outside and perform perfectly under the hood. Any good chauffeur service will be more than happy to tell you about the kind of standards that they keep when maintaining their fleet. So whatever vehicle you choose, make sure that you know it’s arriving in tip-top condition.

Another essential to consider is if all vehicles are fully insured, taxed and serviced, these are all necessities that will determine the difference between a good and bad chauffeur-driven journey. Car insurance for business travel is also a requirement when it comes to chauffeur driven cars.

Routes and punctuality

A chauffeur service is only as good as their track record of getting passengers where they need to be when they need to be there and sometimes in a busy city, this is easier said than done. When you hire a chauffeur with expert local knowledge of your city, you’ll enjoy peace of mind, this time from knowing that your driver can take you from A to B using the most efficient routes possible, but without sacrificing on the smooth, safe and enjoyable journey that you’ve been looking forward too.


It’s also essential that when you’re looking for a chauffeur company, you find a team who’ll be there exactly when you need them. Maybe a firm’s booking line is manned during office hours, yet you’re far more likely to want to make a booking during the evening, they’re not going to be a good fit for you.

Understanding all of the points above will help you to make an informed decision when it comes to choosing a chauffeur. Here at Nottingham Chauffeurs VIP, we have a team of professional chauffeurs who have years of experience and knowledge in the industry. We pride ourselves on offering the highest standards of services and we also make sure that each and every one of our drivers is punctual, organised and dressed smartly.
