The luxury of a chauffeur-driven vehicle is much more widely enjoyed these days. Everybody loves to be treated like a celebrity, and being driven around like Lady Penelope or some sort of rock star is understandably appealing. If you fancy being a star for the day, there are many events and occasions where hiring a driver is a fun and classy way to get there! Here are some of the most popular reasons people choose to hire a chauffeur.
It has long been a tradition to hire a classic car decked in flowers and ribbons for your Big Day. Being driven away in the arms of your new spouse by an immaculately presented chauffeur is one of the archetypal images of weddings in our culture.
Gone are the days of a sweaty school disco in the gym, wearing a hastily purchased mini dress from Topshop and a high ponytail. Nowadays, American high school style proms are all the rage with teenagers. It’s all about perfectly groomed hair, expensive dresses and, yup, you guessed it, a chauffeur-driven limousine.
- Hen Parties & Stag Nights
The ‘last night of freedom’ before your wedding day is another excuse to hire a driver. In fact, it’s rather a sensible choice, considering that these parties are often boozy, hedonistic occasions. Allow a professional, sober designated driver to take care of all your party’s vehicular needs for your big night out with the lads/girls, and make it a night to remember!
- The Races
For big racing events such as Royal Ascot, rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous comes with the ideal accessory of a chauffeur-driven fancy car! It’s also tradition to have a big, champagne-fuelled picnic in the grassy car park once you’ve tired of the racing. When you’ve hired a driver for the occasion, you can bring your posh friends back to your car for an impressive picnic whilst your chauffeur patiently awaits the time when you finally choose to call it a day.
- Airport Transfers
Whether you’re off on your honeymoon, a romantic long weekend or even a family holiday, you can get your trip off to a fancy start by hiring a chauffeur-driven luxury vehicle to get you to the airport. Whatever time of day or night, hiring a driver for your airport transfer is the stress-free option for getting there on time without the hassle and expense of parking your car at the airport. After all, you want to arrive on holiday as relaxed as you mean to go on!
- An Important Meeting
What better way to make a good impression than by arriving in the back of a chauffeur-driven, stylish executive car? Avoid the sweat and exhaustion of travelling by public transport, and arrive cool, calm and collected, with all your documents ready and waiting to go. This is, without a doubt, the smart option for the savvy businessman hoping to close that lucrative deal with an important client.
- Bringing Home Baby
There are few celebrations more worthy of a grand arrival than bringing home your newborn child for the first time. Enjoy the trip together as a family, with a relaxing journey home from the hospital with your very own driver. Avoid the struggle of installing the baby seat for the first time, or the distraction of the bundle of joy in the back seat. Mark the occasion in a way befitting of the importance of the new member of the family coming home for the first time.
- A Big Surprise
Why not surprise the one you love by meeting them from work in the car of their dreams? Be waiting outside their office with a bouquet of roses and a bottle of champers, ready to whisk them away to a fancy restaurant completely unexpectedly. A great tip for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, or just to show your love.
Of course, you may have your own reasons for wanting to hire a driver for the day. Whatever the occasion, a bit of luxury never did anyone any harm. Even just for the pleasure of giving yourself a little treat, a chauffeur-driven ride is a thrill everyone should have the chance to enjoy!
