Before your journey

  • We require that you wear a face covering  for the duration of the journey (including entry and exit of the vehicle). Your chauffeur will be wearing one. And will offer you a free hand sanitiser. Facial masks should not be used by children under the age of three, or by people who may find them difficult to manage correctly. For example, primary age children, or those with respiratory conditions. Disabled people and those with breathing difficulties are also exempt from wearing a face covering. 

  • We advise passengers to travel alone, or with other members of their household.

Passenger Safety Tips

  • Windows down a touch — This helps improves airflow through the vehicle.

  • Avoid touching the vehicle interior and exterior door handles – your chauffeur will open and close your doors. Try not to use the electric windows too. Your chauffeur will be happy to oblige.

  • Sit in the back, on the left – Our advice is to enter the vehicle via the near-side rear passenger door (diagonally opposite the driver) and to sit in the near- side rear passenger seat for the duration of the journey. This is the maximum distance you can be from your driver. Helping to reduce airborne transmission of coronavirus.

  • Help your chauffeur keep you safe – He or She is trained to maintain social distancing wherever possible. Please listen to her safety advice.

  • Set aircon to stun, Scottie – Your chauffeur will set the air-conditioning to extract. Never to recirculate. The chauffeur may also open the windows as well. The latest guidance says that good ventilation can help reduce airborne transmission.

Should I wear a face covering when I travel?

Yes, you are required to wear a face covering for the duration of the journey (including entry and exit of the vehicle). But should not be used by children under the age of three, or by people who may find them difficult to manage correctly.  Disabled people and those with breathing difficulties are also exempt from wearing a face covering. If you do not have your own, we will be happy to offer you one on departure or arrival.

All passengers should remember that good personal hygiene practices are seen as the most effective response to the virus with the Government advising that people should wash their hands often and for at least 20 seconds with soap, using warm water if available.
