  5. Enjoy It

There are however a number of qualities you should look for apart from the obvious qualities of reliability, professionalism and timekeeping when choosing such a company. Below we go through some of the most important qualities and signs all professional chauffeurs should have.


Any respected chauffeur or company should put the safety of their clients above all else. Drivers should be fully licensed and have a good understanding of road safety and be fully trained. Assuring a clients’ safety is one of the biggest deciding factors for people looking for a chauffeur.


Working closely with clients means they might be privy to conversations or information that are confidential. This means that discretion is one of the most important parts of being a chauffeur. Chauffeurs will usually adapt their behaviour and to suit each clients needs, whether their client is chatty or formal. Usually during a first meeting you’ll be able to tell the etiquette of the chauffeur driver you choose.


Professional chauffeurs will always look clean, tidy and smartly dressed. A person that takes care in their appearance is more likely to take pride in the role they do. It is not just the chauffeurs, the vehicle should also be of a smart appearance. Cars used for chauffeuring are typically cleaned and restocked before use. Professional chauffeurs and companies will ensure their vehicles are immaculate for any client wanting to travel with them.


There’s nothing worse than arriving late, and that’s why it’s important for chauffeurs to have good punctuality. Punctual chauffeurs will always allow for extra time to ensure your both collected and dropped off on time. One of the best ways to check how punctual a chauffeur is, is to check their reviews online or to try them for a short run journey.
