What’s The Difference Between a Driver and a Chauffeur?

On the surface, it seems like “chauffeur” is nothing more than a classy way to say “driver” – but that’s not exactly true. Sure, drivers and chauffeurs both get you where you need to go, but the difference between the two is more than a matter of vocabulary – it’s a matter of service.

1. Service Level

A driver exists to do one thing: drive you from point A to point B in one piece.

Commuting doesn't have to be uncomfortable.
Eagle Chauffeurs aren’t just drivers, they are there to serve you.

As the chauffeur’s elegant title suggests, he’s more than the guy behind the wheel. He’s a consummate professional who is not only going to get you where you need to go safely, but also stylishly and luxuriously. And if he’s an Eagle chauffeur, you can bet he’s the best in the business.

Unlike a driver, an Eagle chauffeur is there to serve you, not cart you around like luggage – but he will carry your luggage, if you’d like. He’ll get the door for you. He’ll take the scenic route if you want to see the sights, or he’ll get you directly to your meeting with plenty of time to spare. Feel like grabbing a cup of coffee before heading to the airport? An Eagle chauffeur will take you to the best café in town, or he’ll pop over to a fast food joint, if you’d prefer. The choice is always yours.

2. Training

Eagle chauffeurs receive extensive training before they get behind the wheel, where they learn more than just the rules of the road – of course, they learn those, too. Safety is a top priority for an Eagle chauffeur, who knows to drive defensively, not aggressively. Your safe ride should also be a pleasant ride.

3. Pride In Work

An Eagle chauffeur takes pride in what he does. His uniform is clean and crisp. He carries himself with subtle dignity. His vehicle is clean and stocked with all the amenities you’d like.

4. Trustworthy & Discrete

Your Eagle chauffeur is also trustworthy. Discrete. You’re an important person. You have a lot going on. Need to take a private phone call in the back of the car? That phone call stays private.

So when you’re choosing between a driver and a chauffeur, you need to ask yourself one thing: “Do I just want to get somewhere, or do I want to be treated to a safe and comfortable ride?”
