Firmly on the front foot, as category leaders it’s important to keep abreast of the competition to ensure our pricing remains competitive for our offer. iChauffeur recently undertook an audit to understand how our offer compares with a cross section of 10 of the best private driver and chauffeur services across London.

Our October 2022 audit highlighted that what you see isn’t always what you get, so check the fine print when making a booking. Some operators may seem too good to be true, hiding a multitude of incremental charges.

Full transparency is necessary to understand what is covered, and what may be added, eg:

  • 20% VAT
  • London Congestion Charge
  • Parking fees
  • Tolls
  • Tip
  • Fixed fare, or estimated
  • Surge pricing
  • Incremental charge per minute or mile
  • Per person pricing (not per vehicle)

Our October 2022 audit reiterated that iChauffeur continues to set the standard for London chauffeur services.

We believe that trust is everything as chauffeurs are entrusted with keeping confidential conversations just that, and trust flows from the top down and bottom up. Mutual trust and respect are cornerstones of the iChauffeur business, and we’ll happily answer any questions if you’re unsure exactly what your booking includes.

Make Your Own Rules

You’re in the driving seat. Our professional chauffeurs are at your beck and call to make your ride perfect for you and your needs. At your service for the duration of your booking, we’ll happily run errands while you’re busy getting on with your day.

Transparent By-the-Hour Pricing

iChauffeur’s transparent hourly pricing has no hidden extras to keep you in control, with fixed rate fees for a full day 8hour booking within Central London, and a flat rate for overs.

15 Minute Increments

If your booking goes over time, we charge in 15-minute increments rather than a full hour. Because you shouldn’t be penalised if a meeting creeps over time.

No Surge Pricing

We charge fixed rate bookings any time of day or night, irrespective of traffic conditions. Clients deserve transparent budgeting, so beware slick app-driven chauffeur services for whom surge pricing may be the norm.

No Hidden Extras

With iChauffeur, what you see is definitely what you get. Incremental charges are clearly highlighted at every point throughout the booking process. 20% VAT is added, plus parking and tolls are charged at cost for a full day booking.

Award winning since 2017, iChauffeur leads the way for private drivers in London by putting our customers first.

We publish regular newsletters and blog posts, sharing key information to improve our clients’ overall experience and understanding. Our posts also aim to help potential clients know what to expect from a reputable chauffeur company.
