Bristol & Heathrow based chauffeur service - Long distance & corporate travel specialists
Envoy Chauffeur Cars has been providing executive and luxury chauffeur driven vehicles since 2001. Operating from our Bristol centre, our fleet of cars covers the South West and the surrounding areas, specialising in long distance journeys, corporate travel and special events, including the provision of Wedding cars.
We pride ourselves in offering competitive prices and in providing an excellent, confidential service to all of our private and corporate clients (see our testimonials section for feedback from some of our clients). When you book with Envoy Cars, you can be assured of a professional and friendly service, and your journey will be both comfortable and stress free.
We offer a cost effective pricing structure, and are quick to deal with you personally via email or phone for quotes and bookings.
In addition, we have a 24 hour number for urgent or emergency contact.
We would be happy to supply you with an up to date tariff that is set for the year. We also have a list of the more popular destinations and prices. Please contact us for this.
The business was born out of a love of cars and driving by the owner of the business: Tim Hughes. Add to that, excellent customer service and attention to detail, you have the core of a good chauffeur business. Tim still enjoys doing some of the driving, despite covering what must be the equivalent mileage to the moon and back several times! He remains the main point of contact for bookings and enquiries. The majority of the driving however, is undertaken by the rest of the team. We have always operated with a small group of loyal drivers. This helps build up a good working relationship with our clients, many of whom we have known for years.
Although a lot has changed since we first started, the basics remain the same. We always wanted to offer a service that was more bespoke than a taxi using premium cars with chauffeurs that (if you pardon the pun) would go the extra mile to make your journey as stress free as possible! One of the things we were keen to do was highlight to people that chauffeur driven transport wasn’t just limited to extremely wealthy types going to events and functions but to anyone that wished to travel in comfort. Our business evolved and to some degree now specialises in long distance and corporate travel - often a combination of both. We like to think that we’ve converted a few people to favouring our door to door service instead of the train. Bristol to London first class on the train carries quite a premium; we consider just our standard car service as first class!
I don’t think anyone could have predicted how technology would improve things for the average driver and, in our case, our passengers too. The latest sat nav in our vehicles provides live traffic updates courtesy of TomTom, automatic rerouting and a constantly updating arrival time. In some cases we use a live tracking app to keep our customers automatically updated with our progress as we head towards a collection point. We have provided Wi-Fi in vehicles for a number of years and, in keeping with the modern trend of mobile connectivity and fast information, they are now capable of 4G speeds. This is in amazing contrast to the slow home or office internet that was available at the time of Envoy Cars inception. Believe it or not this was at a time when quite a few of our customers didn't even have an email address for us to send a confirmation email to. Fast forward to current day when a lot of our clients use their travelling time to work on laptops, catch up on social media (twitter and facebook being used more and more for marketing of course) or much needed sleep! Our E-class Mercedes is the benchmark for executive travel. Comfortable to relax in and quiet enough to conduct phone conversations in.
As a business we’ve had to move with the times too. You will notice on this website we have introduced a blog, appropriately called 'From the Chauffeur’s Seat'. This will be a blend of cars, driving and chauffeuring related topics that we hope will be of some interest to our customers and anyone interested in our line of work.
Unlike a taxi company that has added executive cars and drivers to its fleet, we have always been a chauffeur firm and hope that our service and cars reflect this. For short journeys we appreciate a taxi or Uber might be more suitable and cost effective however we would love to hear from you regarding longer distances and events.
