There are so many reasons to hire a chauffeur, from namely no longer having to drive to their navigation skills and immaculate presentation. We’ve compiled five reasons why hiring a chauffeur might just be your next best move.
It’ll Give You More Time
Quite simply not having to drive will free up more time for you. Not only will you be able to make the most of your travelling time by being able to continue with your work, attend a conference call, ring your loved ones, take in the scenery, enjoy a family trip or catch up with that series you’ve been watching. It’s a chance to take back some of those hours you spend behind the wheel every day. It also allows more flexibility in your day, for example, if your children need to be driven somewhere and you are unable to drive them yourself, then you can rely on the chauffeur to ensure they arrive safely.
You’ll Always Look the Part
Not only will you always arrive in style not having to worry about driving and being able to do any last-minute touch-ups in the car, but you will arrive in a car that is immaculately maintained, driven by a chauffeur who is equally as smart and well presented. Arriving for a business meeting like this will signal the standard you set.
It Removes Stress
From driving in bad weather and finding a parking space to vehicle maintenance and being stuck in a traffic jam, there are many stresses involved with driving. Not when you have a chauffeur, all these problems will be taken care of. Your chauffeur will be up to date in local knowledge of hotels, restaurants and airports and will be efficient in knowing the best routes to take to ensure you always arrive on time. Equally, if any problems do arise your chauffeur will see that the correct service appointments are arranged and will organise a rental vehicle if needed.
You’ll Still Be In Control
Whilst you can leave everything up to your chauffeur you still have total control if you want, whether that’s suggesting new routes, asking for multiple stops, or easily changing the times that you need to be picked up, things that when you’re in a taxi or being driven by a friend might not be as easy to do.
You’ll Always Have a Designated Driver
Knowing that a driver (who has passed stringent safety checks) you trust is ready to whisk you home as soon as you need will allow you to make the most of the events that you attend, removing any worrying about whether you can have that extra glass of wine or whether you are too tired to drive.

Festive season is almost upon us, one of the busiest times of the year, when our diaries are filled with dinner parties, cocktail receptions and soirées. And of course one of the most important parts of any event is the food. Which is why we recommend private chef Christopher Warwick.
Whether it’s dinner with friends, a decadent feast or just an evening of continuous canapés when it comes to the food you want to make sure it’s memorable – for all the right reasons.
Having started as head pastry chef for Anton Mossiman, Christopher has had a distinguished career in the restaurant industry working with Marco Pierre White, Jason Atherton and Brett Graham and has held positions at likes of The Square with Philip Howard – the chef’s chef, Maze, The Ledbury, The French Laundry in Yountville, which at the time was voted as the best restaurant in the world and Soneva Fushi in the Maldives, regarded as one of the world’s top resorts.
It was whilst he was head chef of The Barn at Coworth Park that he developed his style of British cuisine with a European touch (although Christopher is certainly not limited to this cuisine alone) and was mentored in the art of hospitality by master chef John Campbell. It’s this wealth of experience and skill that Christopher now draws upon in his role as a private chef.
What sets Christopher apart from other private chefs, is his personability and the importance he places on building a good rapport with each client right from the start – beginning with the menu planning. Whether you know the exact dishes you want down to the garnishes, you only know you want canapés or you have no idea at all, once Christopher has an understanding of your event he will propose a bespoke menu that makes the most of the country’s finest quality seasonal produce. And there really are no limitations when it comes to the menu – if Christopher is able to cook it he will.
Just as each menu is bespoke, so is Christopher’s interaction with guests during the event. Perhaps you want each dish introduced, maybe just a few words at the beginning or you need complete privacy, whatever it might be you can expect the highest levels of service, humility and integrity to ensure that your event is a great success.
