A (Normal) Day in the life of a VIP Chauffeur


In these unprecedented times there’s time to reflect on what we previously would have considered to be the “Norm”. Sometimes it’s easy to take for granted the VIP Chauffeur job that we do and it’s not until you stop that you realise what you are missing!


Under normal circumstances, we’d typically be busy driving an entirely diverse range of VIP clients, across virtually all industry sectors, or perhaps taking care of the requirements of a visiting celebrity, maybe for a TV show or for an appearance at a local venue. I guess the variety is what makes being a VIP chauffeur so enjoyable – no two days are ever the same.

We’re lucky to have some really interesting clients and I don’t just mean the high profile celebrities. It can be absolutely fascinating chatting to our passengers and getting a bit of an insight into their worlds. We have to be discreet, of course and our passengers have to feel completely at ease in that whatever is discussed within the confines of the car, remains completely confidential. Purely by the nature of what we do, we get to meet many ‘captains of industry’, people who run £multi million or even £multi-billion companies and its often interesting to note that they have the same type of challenges and successes as the rest of us, just scaled up many times over.


I must admit, you do get a certain buzz when you are part of a major event such as a world class sporting event or a concert for a world renowned performer. These types of event come with a huge amount of responsibility, but also bring a massive amount of satisfaction when our service is delivered with care and precision. Sounds easy doesn’t it? Believe me it isn’t, you just have to make it look easy! We’re the proverbial swans, serenely gliding across a lake whilst the unseen legs are paddling like mad to get to the other side. There’s only one way to do that and that’s to plan, plan, plan and then be prepared for things to change from the moment you think everything is taken care of to the moment that our last passenger is dropped off safely at their destination.


For us, the greatest satisfaction of being a VIP Chauffeur, is whoever we’re taking care of and whether for a short local journey or for a multiple-day job, our clients will feel that they’ve had a truly first class experience and one they’ll remember long after their journey has ended.
