Chauffeurs – A Personification of Elegance, Professionalism and Comfort!

Chauffeur (pronounced as “show-fur”) as defined by “The Chauffeur’s Blue Book 1906”, is: “A man who understands the mechanism, care, and driving of a motor car, and who is paid to carry out the wishes and protect the interests of the owner in connection with it. A chauffeur, then, receives wages for his services and is thus a servant.” Chauffeur is a French word for driver. Unlike its previous definition, the modern connotation of a chauffeur is someone who drives a luxury car or limousine for a living. In comparison to taxicab, a chauffeur is more professional, skilled and polished driver who drives luxury cars instead of a taxi.

Advantage of hiring a chauffeur for your private travel or official travel purposes is that he/she can be friendly, discrete d knowledgeable driving escort who will certainly make sure your journey a safe and comfortable one. It’s pretty subjective so far as the differences between a cabby and a chauffeur. The basic difference is the type of driving licences each of these two obtain. Taxi drivers require obtaining a taxi driving licence and chauffeurs require obtaining chauffeur’s licence from local motor vehicle department. The second difference would be the type of vehicle each of these two, drive. Taxi drivers drive taxis that somehow labelled as TAXI for easy and quick identification. On the other hand, chauffeurs drive luxury cars and limousines vans and they can be full time employed by people or any agency. People claim that one can easily distinguish a chauffeur from a cabby from his/her attitude, manner and professionalism, but it doesn’t mean that taxi drivers are not professional and courteous. Attire is another aspect which can make the difference in between a chauffeur and a cabby categorically. Taxi drivers wear uniforms, but chauffeurs wear dark suit, white shirt and a conservative tie (often black). Shoes must be black and highly polished. Another difference we can mention here from the customer point of view is that a chauffeur service is pre planned whereas a taxi service is almost instantaneous. In recent times, a chauffeur’s uniform includes a black cap and gloves.

A chauffeured driven car business has wider scope so far as customers are concerned, because people prefer hiring a chauffeur for almost all special occasions, where as taxis are hired for transportation purposes. A typical chauffeur needs to cater most events, from large conferences to corporate road shows, from airport transfers to shopping trips, days out to wedding and opera show to sightseeing. Other characteristics like Advanced Driving Techniques (i.e. recognition and perception of travelling hazards, coping with wide ranging road surfaces) and Modern Vehicle Dynamics confirms chauffeur hiring a comfortable, efficient and safe journey. Chauffeur service is a delight in itself as a customer won’t be left unwatched and uncared during the service duration. Mane of the chauffer service do provide other complementary service like major newspapers, magazines, music, drinks, televisions, and telephones, too. Chauffeurs those who are privately employed by people are now-a-days possess a distinctive job profile of working as a driver, executive assistance, personal secretary and itinerary planner.
