Food and drink are not to be consumed without prior approval. While our vehicles offer a silky smooth ride, sometimes the condition of roads and traffic mean you could end up spilling food or drink on yourself, and if you’re dressed up this is the last thing you want.

Yes, if you have your own cars we can provide a professional chauffeur for you.

And if you would like to use your own, you are most welcome to do this instead.
Our limousines and sedans have quite large boots, so we can take quite a lot of luggage. However, for safety reasons your luggage can’t to in the vehicle with you.
So if you have a lot of luggage, or you have 4 or more people then let us know and we can provide a trailer or arrange a larger vehicle for you. We can also arrange transport of additional luggage if you need.
You can pay by credit card, cash, cabcharge or direct deposit. There are a few conditions, which are:
When booking, we will request your credit card details (Visa, Mastercard, American Express). Your card details will be held as security on your reservation.

When paying by cash or cabcharge, credit card security is still required, but no charge will be made to your card. Vouchers can also be requested at the time of booking.
Of course. We are happy to stop so you can take photos. Of course, I’m sure you understand that if this extends your journey beyond the time you booked this will be added in the total journey time for pricing purposes.
We want your day to be memorable so feel free to ask for photo stops.

Alternatively we can arrange to meet you at a particular location if you prefer. Your chauffeur will hold a sign with your name, or your group or company’s name. If you like we can customise the message for you.
