Chauffeur class business car services are not simply about luxury. They are about ensuring that passengers’ needs are met – not just their transport needs, but also their business needs.
When it comes to business travel, consistency and reliability are essential qualities, but too often they are lacking, or altogether absent.
The Best Business Model for Business Travel?
The exponential rise of ride hailing apps illustrate a highly successful business model. They offer a cheap and quick means of hiring a taxi. Offering a world of accessibility for its users, but do they offer much more than this?
Generally, ride hailing app drivers are very locally-centred, and are most comfortable making local journeys. How far can you rely on a driver to take you to a destination outside their comfort zone?
Moreover, ride hailing apps are not the most discreet form of business travel. You are likely to be taken from point to point by someone with a conspicuous satnav on display.
When you arrive at your location, the driver stays in the car, regardless of the time of day, or night, and the surroundings.
Essentially, as a business traveller using ride hailing apps, you are on your own.
What happens if your journey is absolutely time-critical, or it involves you carrying valuable, sensitive information with you?
If your focus is on the business that has made your journey necessary, how distracted can you afford to be? No one wants to arrive at a crucial destination feeling anxious or flustered.
Similarly, while the black cab is an older, more established form of transport, it does not offer that extra element of discreet support that only comes with a dedicated executive car service offering chauffeur class transfers.
You may have a perfectly sociable, engaging driver, but they are not fully dedicated to fulfilling the needs of your itinerary in the same way that an executive chauffeur is.
Consistency and Reliability
Reliability is not something you can underestimate, but it is something you might think you have experienced, until you experience it properly.
What a chauffeur class transfer service does is provide an underlying sense of quiet confidence in the entire process.
While it provides certain tangible benefits in the class of car and the interior facilities and finishes that go with it, it is the other, less obvious elements, that really distinguish it.
These include highly trained, professional drivers, providing the equivalent of a personal business concierge service on wheels.
There is also a crystal clear focus on the importance of your itinerary. With excellent communications and response times, including ChauffeurCall instant access to your chauffeur, you will always feel properly connected.
The Repeat Performance
The other key benefit of an executive chauffeur class transfer service is that it is never going to be a one-off.
You might have had those apparently miraculous public transport experiences where everything goes according to plan, on time. But it is the rarity of these occasions which can make them stand out.
What a chauffeur class executive car service provides is consistency. It is not a question of whether this time will be as good as the last. The whole point is that every journey you make will always be to the same high, professional standard.

What happens at your destination might be business-critical, but how you get there can make a huge difference to ensuring you are business-ready. We have designed our executive car services around the concept of business support, and what busy individuals need.
This is not just about making sure your journey is comfortable, but also providing you with the kind of support that gives you more time to focus fully on your business objectives.
The Time-Poor Executive
Being successful in business does not always equate with being good at managing time. Many people find that in fact the more success they achieve, the more time-poor they become.
For many dynamic business people, the day-to-day tasks they face become a distraction from the things they want to do, and which they are most adept at doing. However, at the same time these tasks are not something they can opt out of.
These are the sorts of tasks that may occur regularly or routinely, but eat away at time.
They can be about arranging appointments and attending meetings; organising complex travel arrangements and a myriad of other non-urgent but still important tasks.
One aspect of dealing with time management is to delegate as much work as possible, but when it comes to high-powered meetings and critical appointments in different destinations, there is no getting around personal involvement.
Driven to Success with Executive Car Services
Success comes from being adaptable, from recognising opportunities and from making them happen.
But success in business also comes from being business-ready. Struggling with time management is likely to leave you less prepared for making your business grow and thrive.
If many business executives are driven to succeed, then the physical act of driving them from A to B can also make a significant contribution.
Executive car services are about much more than the actual journey itself. They help join the dots in busy schedules, and take care of the significant arrangements behind the scenes.
Most importantly, they create a stress-free travel environment, where that crucial last part of the journey is reliable, punctual, comfortable and supremely efficient.
More than Luxury
If you consider executive car services to be only about luxury limos and VIP trappings, you are missing out on an essential aspect of mobile business support.
The priority is not flattery, though you might well be impressed by the discreet, polite and efficient level of service.
Rather, it enables you to travel in confidence, to not have to worry about arrangements, schedules, transfers and pick-ups, and to arrive at that vital meeting or appointment refreshed, and fully business-ready.

When it comes to logistics, the last mile is critical. In a world where consumers expect to have so many of their shopping needs met through ecommerce, getting the goods to them directly has taken on a whole new significance.
The last mile is that final step, when those goods arrive on your doorstep. It is the absolute distillation of the customer experience.
However, it can be a huge challenge to supply chains, especially in an online retail sector where the competition is very fierce.
Reputations are built, and sometimes buried, by the last mile.
The kind of importance the last mile has also applies to executive business travel. It is about where the customer feels the edge of their experience most keenly, whether this is good or bad.
For all the air miles travelled and distances covered, the moment a business traveller steps into a car for the crucial parts of a journey by road, which bookend their experience, is the moment which will make the biggest difference to their journey.
Managing Global Travel Demands
Today’s global executive may find they are rarely spending a week in one place. The demands of international commerce are such that they can be spending many months of the year in the air, on the road.
What many business travellers recognise is the value of having help organising the various aspects of their travel.
Personal levels of service and attention to detail have become the norm, and therefore, meeting these expectations is vital when organising executive travel.
Having a PA on hand may not be enough, however, because the complexities of international travel, combined with shifting business schedules, are often a task in themselves.
Who takes care of the details, especially when it comes to getting executive business travellers to and from transport hubs, hotels, meetings and other important destinations that are part of their itineraries?
