3 Benefits of Hiring a Personal Driver


If you need to make a regular journey, but you do not want to drive yourself, you may be thinking about booking a taxi service. You may not have even considered hiring a personal driver. However, hiring a personal driver offers several benefits which are not provided by a regular taxi service. Below is a guide to these benefits.

You will have the same person driving you every day

If you book with your transport using a standard taxi company, it is unlikely that you will have the same driver picking you up every time you need a lift. This is because a taxi service will have a large staff and will typically send the nearest car to the next job. You may find that you hate some drivers because of their personalities or driving style and you will never know when you may be assigned a driver you dislike. However, if you hire a personal driver, you will always have the same person behind the wheel. This will allow you to build up trust and rapport with the driver. You driver will come to understand if you are the type of person who likes to chat, or if you would rather be left in peace.

You can travel in your own car

When you book your transport using a taxi company, there is no guarantee given about the type of the car which will be used to transport you. If the company uses drivers who own their own vehicles, you may find yourself travelling by luxury car one day and a complete wreck the next. When you hire a personal driver, you can enjoy the comforts of your own vehicle without having to get stressed about driving through busy traffic, without having to worry about what type of vehicle you will be travelling in today.

You can be certain of receiving a quality service

Hiring a personal driver also gives you the peace of mind that the person driving you to your destination has a clean licence and no criminal record. Companies which provide personal drivers have extremely strict screening processes for new applicants which are designed to ensure that only the best drivers are hired. Regular taxi companies will not necessarily perform the same check, meaning that the service you receive could be compromised.

Cool coach drivers

I really like doing all sorts of little things to make my passengers coach trips just that little bit more comfortable. I have DVDs playing during the day and keep the coach nice and cool at night to help people sleep on those long trips. We make lots of trips to stop and stretch and also take some great photos. Australia can seem stark when you are staring out the coach window but there are some really beautiful spots along my routes that make for some beautiful shots. I meet funny people and have great adventures, which I hope you'll like reading about.
