Much is made today of using new technology, such as apps, to book taxis or private hire vehicles. But for many of us, personal service remains a vitally important part of the travel experience.
At AA Chauffeurs, Executive London Chauffeurs, we work hard to ensure that our passengers receive a personal London chauffeur service, from start to finish.
That begins with a booking by phone, if you prefer, which ensures you can discuss your requirements with a knowledgeable person at the other end of the phone, who can answer any questions you may have.
An Executive chauffeur service will also generally use a small number of dedicated drivers. For regular clients, those drivers may become well known, with that familiarity ensuring a stress-free experience.
What could be more reassuring, when being collected on a dark, wet night, than seeing a familiar face who recognises you, and pulls up to keep you as dry as possible when you get into your car home.
Similarly, getting to know your personal London chauffeur ensures you get to travel just how you like.
Aside from being driven professionally to your destination, they will get to know whether you like to have a conversation, or those times when you prefer to be left quietly to deal with paperwork or make a phone call.
And the reassurance of using a personal London chauffeur who you have got to know is vitally important, for business people.
With that familiarity comes the confidence to make sensitive or confidential phone calls in the back of the car, safe in the knowledge that anything discussed will not be repeated.
Your personal London chauffeur will also be on hand to give out personal contact details, in situations where it may be difficult to predict an exact collection time or address.
Having direct contact means time saved, and allows the chauffeur to wait nearby without being in the way at, for example, a hotel entrance.
So, before falling for the novelty of using an app, don’t forget the value of personal service.
We are, of course, happy to receive your instructions by email, if you prefer, but for many of us, a phone call is still the quickest, most convenient way to ensure a chauffeur or private hire car booking is confirmed, with the correct details.
