Chauffeur2You gives you the choice of choosing a saloon vehicle (suitable for 2 or 3 people) or an MPV which may suit up to 7 people depending on the number of passengers travelling and the amount of luggage being transported. (Guidelines are set out in the vehicle guide size below.) Chauffeur2You are unable to guarantee a certain vehicle model but do undertake to provide an executive saloon vehicle or people carrier depending on the option chosen.
Examples of typical vehicle types are:
Saloon: Volvo S80, BMW 5 series, Ford Mondeo, Mercedes E-Class
MPV: Ford Galaxy, Volkswagen Caravelle, Mercedes Viano
We reserve the right to substitute any vehicle should it not be available due to a breakdown or traffic conditions beyond our control.
Our suppliers reserve the right to sub-contract and will make every effort to provide the same standard of vehicle and service that would be provided by them.
We provide different vehicles to different locations so please read the description of the vehicle carefully. At some locations we provide a variety of vehicles and we will match the vehicle supplied to the number of passengers travelling. It is the responsibility of the customer to correctly state the number of people travelling so that the correct vehicle is supplied. We reserve the right to contact you if we are unable to provide a vehicle of sufficient size for the number of passengers stated.
Saloon Vehicle : We accept bookings in a saloon vehicle for up to 4 adults. However, when 3 or 4 passengers are travelling the volume of cases usually requires an estate car. At some locations an estate car will automatically be provided for 3 or 4 passengers. Be sure to read the vehicle description before accepting the quote. We cannot carry anything but very small hand-luggage inside the car.
Estate Vehicle : The Estate vehicles have additional luggage room in the rear of the vehicle for a total of up to 4 standard size airline luggage cases and up to 4 pieces of small hand-luggage.
MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle or People Carrier) : We will provide a vehicle for 4 to 7 passengers. The type of vehicle provided will depend on the number of passengers you specify. According to the number of passengers specified between 4 and 7 adults with one suitcase and one piece of hand luggage each can be accommodated. Do contact us if you have excessive baggage or a wheelchair or golf clubs or skis and we can advise.
Larger MPVs : These can be provided at some locations and will be described accordingly.
Choosing the correct vehicle size for the amount of passengers and luggage is your responsibility and is vital. We are always happy to advise on the appropriate choice of vehicle size should you have any queries. Failure to notify us of excessive luggage or choosing an incorrect vehicle size may incur extra costs, may incur a delay for which you will be liable or in the worse case mean we are unable to find a vehicle of the correct size for your journey.
We are happy to carry wheelchairs however the correct choice of vehicle should be made to accommodate them. We normally recommend an estate car if the luggage transported is minimal, otherwise an MPV must be used. All wheelchairs must be fully collapsible.
A number of our customers have additional needs. These include difficulties in climbing into higher vehicles such as People Carriers. Please do contact us at least one week in advance and we will try and accommodate these needs and attempt to ensure an estate car is provided if appropriate to luggage and travel arrangements.
Many Airports provide Special Assistance. This can only be arranged in advance through your airline or your travel agent. Please do tell us if this has been arranged and the chauffeur will attempt to drop you at the contact point at the departures drop-off point.

Licensed vehicles are subject to the following rules:
Children under three, if in a licensed taxi/vehicle may travel unrestrained in the rear if no child seat is available. For children aged three and above, they must use an adult seatbelt, if no child seat is available or taken. During the booking process you are able to request car seats. We will assume that these are booster seats unless you ring us to advise us otherwise. Our suppliers will endeavour to fulfil all requests. In the event that they are not able to supply a car seat that has been requested we may be able to arrange storage of your own car seat and return it to you, providing that you have also booked a return transfer with us. While we endeavour to provide child seat or store yours this service is not guaranteed.
