Chauffeur vs. Driver: What’s the Difference?

Comparing chauffeur vs. driver is much like comparing standard against luxury. When you contract a chauffeured service, your experience should feel first-rate, from the appearance of the individual behind the wheel to the onboard amenities, nothing should be overlooked.

What is a Chauffeur?

It helps to think of “chauffeur” as a profession and “driver” as a job. Anyone can be a driver; modern services like Uber make full use of that fact by hiring anyone who meets their minimum standards.

For a chauffeur, driving is only part of what they do. They’re more focused on customer service, so you can expect a chauffeur to pay attention to your needs, provide local recommendations, help you with services and provide you with assistance when you arrive and depart. Chauffeurs should go above and beyond to make sure that you have a first-class experience.

What Vehicles Do Chauffeured Services Use?

You’re probably unaware of how many professional drivers you see passing you in Chicago, IL or sitting bumper-to-bumper in Orlando, FL. Unless they’re plastered with advertisements, their vehicles look much the same as everyone else’s.

Chauffeurs use executive and luxury vehicles which are maintained to the highest standards and kept in pristine condition.

Common vehicle classes include:

  • Executive Sprinter Vans
  • Luxury SUVs
  • Luxury Sedans

You should enjoy plenty of headroom and legroom, luxury upholstery, and passenger comfort amenities. At best, an everyday driver will offer a free bottle of water.
