Booking private transfers – a stress-free start to your holiday

Going on holiday is usually an exciting part of your year, but it can quickly get off on the wrong foot if you arrive late at the airport or shipping dock for your cruise. Booking private transport is something you can tick off your list before the big day arrives, and means you can focus on making sure you have everything packed and ready!

Our fleet of luxury vehicles all have climate control, 12 volt charging points for mobiles, tablets and laptops, heated seats and of course a Sat Nav. All of our vehicles have generous legroom and storage space for luggage, but our Mercedes V Class is our largest and most spacious; seating up to seven people with ample space for the not-so-light traveller. Find out about the other luxury features our Mercedes V Class and Chrysler Grand Voyager have here and start your holiday as a VIP.

Why it’s important to travel with a fully licensed and DBS checked driver

Whether it’s an airport transfer for your annual holiday or corporate transport for senior executives, booking a private chauffeur is an important service that you should always have peace of mind with. To ensure that you are travelling in safe hands, we encourage our passengers to ask for confirmation that all drivers and all cars are fully licensed.

Our drivers travel with and are happy to show our documentation to passengers. However, if you travel with an alternative company that doesn’t have the certification to hand, it’s important to know that your safety is at risk and you are not insured for the journey. DBS checks are in place to ensure the safety of the public so we encourage our passengers to view our documentation before commencing any journey, this will give you peace of mind that your journey will run smoothly from the meet and greet to arriving at your destination.

Top tips for booking safe, reliable, luxury prom transport for your children/students

As prom season approaches, prom organisers are in full swing booking venues and entertainment for the big day. Often transport is left for individuals to book themselves as an optional luxury extra. After a quick search on Google, you’ll see that many companies offer a ‘prom limo’ service but how do you know that you are booking a reliable, safe service for your children/students? Teenagers that want to choose and book their own transport will be most interested in the style of the vehicle and the price but they should be encouraged to place just as much importance on who will be transporting them.

At Elite Voyager, we’re trusted by some of Yorkshire’s top schools to transport boarding students to and from the airport and also have lots of experience of offering prom services so we know the difference between a company that you can trust and those that are just jumping on the prom bandwagon. Here are our tips for booking prom chauffeur services:

  • Ask for confirmation that ALL drivers and ALL cars are fully licensed and DBS/Local Authority checked
  • Ask to see copies of Fleet Insurance policies, Public Liability Insurance policies, Vehicle Certifications, Operators’ Licenses and Driver Badges
  • Ask if additional services, such as text messages with driver / car details, for extra reassurance and peace of mind, are offered
  • Check online reviews and testimonials for the company you’re booking; Facebook, Twitter and Google reviews will paint an honest and unbiased picture of the company
  • Ask if the vehicles have mobile Wi-Fi – we know how popular this is with teenagers as often the fun and excitement starts on the journey to the venue!
  • Have a look at what cars the company has in their fleet and check that they really are as luxury as your children/students are expecting – just because it is a ‘limo’ doesn’t mean it will have all the best features. Six and seven seater vehicles such as the Grand Voyagers we have can actually be much more luxurious
  • Make sure you book with an actual person – while we offer an online quote and booking system, it’s usually better to pick up the phone and speak to some when booking prom transport

Avoiding event management disasters: Why the right transport for international conference speakers is so important

Yorkshire is host to some of the UK’s most high profile events at venues like Harrogate International Centre, the Royal Armouries in Leeds. These events cover a wide range of topics: For example, we recently chauffeured a group to the Institute of Architectural Ironmongers conference at Briar Court Hotel in Huddersfield and the 22nd IEEE International Conference on Automation and Computing, which is attended by some of the world’s leading technology thinkers, will take place at the University of Huddersfield in September 2017.

Conference organisers have a lot to think about when it comes to co-ordinating all the people and resources involved in pulling off a seamless event with an international audience. Ensuring that high profile speakers, exhibitors and sponsors are well looked after is often at the top of their list. A delayed or disgruntled speaker can throw the whole programme off track!

At Elite Voyager, we take one head ache off your hands by ensuring that your conference ‘VIPs’ make it to the event on time and in style. Our professional, reliable, friendly drivers can ‘meet and greet’ individuals or groups from any UK airport in our fleet of luxury vehicles which include features like mobile wifi and plenty of space for luggage.

Treat your staff to luxury transport to the Christmas party

Making your Christmas party a special occasion is an important task for office managers and personal assistants; providing hard-working employees with the opportunity to not only let their hair down but also socialise in an environment outside of the corporate office.

To give your event the added edge, why not arrange luxury transport for your loyal team members? Starting the night with a stylish touch, senior staff and deserving team members can be transported in premium vehicles allowing for a door-to-door service.

Our suited chauffeurs will arrange a pick-up location to collect employees in our fleet of top-of-the-range vehicles, including a Mercedes V Class people carrier which seats six – perfect for collecting larger groups and taking them direct to the party!

Here’s three things you should consider when you’re tasked with arranging the Christmas party:

1.      Set a clear budget which includes transport: Having a budget in mind which includes transport is one of the first things to plan for. Knowing this before making enquiries will give you an idea of how extravagant you can be.

2.      Have a ‘surprise’ element which employees won’t be expecting: We’ve all been to business events which are the same as the previous year, so make sure you mix things up a bit. Small touches like luxury transport for employees will make your event a hit before they’ve even arrived!

3.      Allow plenty of time: Christmas is a busy time for everyone, in both business and personal calendars. Make sure you book venues, catering and transport far enough in advance to guarantee the ideal date for everyone.
