As mentioned in an earlier Nova Bussing blog, ‘Luxury Self-Drive Minibus Hire‘, we discussed the availability of luxury self-drive minibuses. As far as we are aware, there are few, if any, luxury self-drive providers in England. This is due to a combination of vast insurance costs and general administration requirements needed to get the vehicle road-ready. Therefore, hiring a luxury minibus with all of the latest features is only half of what you should be expecting to receive.
Professional and fully qualified drivers are essential in completing the luxury minibus package. In our eyes, a luxury minibus driver should be a responsible individual with a honed experience in the minibus/coaching industry and a vast knowledge of the road.
As would you expect to turn up to an interview in a presentable fashion, the same applies for a luxury minibus driver. We ensure that our clients are met by a polite, friendly and respectable driver; someone who is ready to meet the needs of the client and provide an expected service during the journey. First appearances are crucial when reassuring a client about their booking decision, therefore our drivers always arrive on time and in a presentable manor; clean shaven, pressed shirt, tie, suit trousers and suitable footwear. At the end of the day, our drivers are there to reflect the intentions of our company. By turning up in a consistent company uniform, we can be sure clients gain the right impression; especially when multiple drivers are assigned to a single booking.
We undertake a large amount of corporate bookings and private VIP requirements, therefore it is our responsibility to ensure business remains discrete and professional at all times. We pay our drivers more than the average and therefore expect our drivers to be above that of the average minibus/coach driver; providing a service that consists of discretion, punctuality and most importantly professionalism.
To summarise, a professional luxury minibus driver should provide a service that clients can relax and feel at ease for the duration of the journey. They should be responsible and have the correct etiquette; wanting to meet the requirements of the passengers. Knowledge of the route and the roads they will be taking are essential also, especially knowing second routes and other alternatives when faced with traffic jams and accidents.
All of our drivers are fully qualified, professional and knowledgeable, undergoing regular training schemes and license checks throughout their employment. In addition to this, our drivers undergo CPC training each year, ensuring that they meet the correct standards for commercial driving.
