HOW DOES CHAUFFEUR BY THE HOUR WORK?

This option is suitable for multiple short journeys within a city and ensures that your chauffeur is always at your disposal during the allocated time. No need to worry about finding taxis or parking your own vehicle. You will have direct contact with your chauffeur so the vehicle will always be waiting nearby. Please note that hourly rides are subject to a maximum distance of 50 miles per hour or part thereof.

HOW DO I CALCULATE THE SIZE OF THE VEHICLE TO SUIT MY NEEDS?

We provide guidance on our website booking form with regards to the maximum number of passengers, hold luggage (medium suitcases) and carry on bags. Luggage capacity may be reduced if the vehicle is carrying the maximum number of passengers. It is therefore important that you clearly specify the correct number of carry-on bags, hold luggage, sporting equipment, pushchairs etc. This will allow us to dispatch the most suitable vehicle. If a driver feels the safety could be compromised, he has the authority to terminate the ride with no refund due.

IF I AM GOING TO AN AIRPORT, HOW LONG BEFORE MY FLIGHT SHOULD MY PICK-UP BE?

We always suggest that you arrive at the airport at least two hours prior to your scheduled departure time. Check with your airline. You can use Google Maps to work out the approximate travel time for your journey or we can assist upon request. Please also bear in mind that journey times can vary significantly due to time of day, traffic and weather conditions. We cannot be held responsible for delayed journeys as a result of factors out of our control.

The time to disembark and pass through customs and baggage reclaim can vary depending on whether your flight was domestic or international, how busy the airport is, whether you have luggage to reclaim, travelling alone or in a group or require special assistance. As a rule, we recommend that we schedule your pick-up as follows:
