What’s The Difference Between A Local Taxi And A Chauffeur Driven Car?

You may be familiar with taxis, but have you ever considered hiring a chauffeur? Enjoy the added luxuries of being chauffeur driven around Cambridge instead of in a local taxi.

Did you know you can book a local Cambridge taxi with us?

We provide a service where you are guaranteed an executive chauffeur driven car, excellent customer service and a first-class journey - all for a competitive price.

We have been chauffeuring the Cambridge business community for nearly 30 years around the city and have been on-hand for anything. Whether we’re used as a courier service to deliver important documents or are booked to take VIP's to lunch, our clients know how even short distances can affect first impressions.

When you book a local Cambridge taxi with us, you will receive a first-class experience with a professional chauffeur who will look after you. From the moment you book with us, our dedicated office team will make sure everything is correct for your journey and that timings are suitable so you arrive to your destination on time. We care about details and will ensure we send a chauffeur driven car that is fitting for your journey. See below for how else our Cambridge taxi’s stand out.

Customer service

Our highly-experienced office team are available 24/7 for all your needs and will always help you with last minute transfers or changes. As a family-run business, we value our strong working relationships with our clients and are proud to run such a reputable service. 

Whether you book online, by phone or email, one of our friendly team will be there to answer any queries you have. From making sure the vehicle you have selected will fit all your luggage in, to making sure there is an iso-fix for your car seat, we fine comb over all the details for you.

Also, to make your executive travel as seamless as possible, unlike a local taxi, we will never ask you to pay in the car. Instead, when you book, we will set a price then and will charge you only after your journey has taken place. This means no watching meters, no extra costs if you get stuck in some traffic, but instead peace of mind that you know in advance how much the journey will cost.

By booking a chauffeur driven car, you will also never have to wait in a taxi rank again. Whether that’s at the airport after a long haul flight or in the city centre when it’s raining, all our services are pre-booked so you know we will be there on time. If you need a taxi from Cambridge to Stansted or any other major UK airport, we also provide a complementary meet and greet service where we will stand in a designated area in the terminal with a name board where we will wait for you to come through. 

Executive cars

Booking a local Cambridge taxi with us guarantees you will be transported in a luxury, executive vehicle that is immaculate, smooth and plate exempt. With local taxis, you can never guarantee what car you get, how clean it will be and it will always have obvious signage stating what it is. But, our plate exempt vehicles means there’s no signage on the exterior, instead it will create the perfect first impression of a clean, state-of-the-art car.

As a standard, all our chauffeur driven cars are a Mercedes E-Class or equivalent. However, if you prefer an S-Class or need a vehicle large enough for group travel, we also have 7 and 8-seaters available that have dual climate-control, chairs that manoeuvre and a sun roof.

All our chauffeur driven cars also include free on-board wifi and complementary bottled water on every journey. So, whether you need to work on-the-go or just want to scroll through social media, don’t eat up your data, use ours. The spacious, leather interiors will also make your ride comfortable and pleasant whether you have a 10 minute journey or a 2 hour one.

Chauffeurs

When you book our chauffeur service, you will get a personal chauffeur who will be well-groomed in a suit and tie. Our chauffeurs take pride in their appearance and are professionals who know they are representing you, our clients. Each chauffeur will have their own unique driving style to make travel as smooth as possible for you, and they will always be tracking live traffic to make sure they avoid any hold-ups. They are also very knowledgeable of the Cambridge area and can take back routes if preferred.

On the chauffeurs arrival, you will receive a text with their name, contact number and registration, as well as a link to a photo of them and where they are standing if you have booked airport transfers. This is to make it as easy and safe for you to identify them.

They will treat you with first-class service including opening the doors for you, helping with luggage and making sure the car is comfortable for you. From checking the temperature is correct to which radio station you would like on, our chauffeurs are detail-orientated. As excellent communicators, they will also know when you’d like to chat or not, and will always respect your privacy and discretion.
