How to save money on your Derby Chauffeur Service

A52 Executive Cars & Derby Chauffeurs are NOT a taxi service. We cannot, and do not, price match the local private hire and taxi companies. Our business is built on reliability, quality and offering a service that far exceeds taxis and unfortunately this cannot be achieved by offering cheapness as a way of gaining clients. We do believe however that we offer value for the service we provide.

Unfortunately, A52 Executive Cars & Derby Chauffeurs are not immune to the current rise in prices that are effecting every business and person in the UK at the moment.  In the past week we have seen fuel rising daily and it’s looking like £2 a litre is just around the corner in Derby. Apparently the price of diesel has risen by around 30% since the beginning of the year and it shows no signs of slowing down unless the government steps in with VAT or fuel duty cuts. Alongside the rapid increase in fuel we are also having to battle the seemingly impossible task of getting new staff, increases in airport drop off and pick up charges, vehicle maintenance costs are getting more expensive and even the day to day costs of running our business are increasing.

It’s safe to say that myself and my fellow colleagues love our jobs, but it is just that, a job, and the primary reason for running a service business is to make a liveable wage and provide profit to the business so that we can continue to invest in our future and trade solvently.

Get your Derby Chauffeur service or executive Airport Transfer in Derby at the best price

In order to get the best price from our online portal when you book a chauffeur service in Derby you need a little insight into how our cloud basedsoftware dynamically prices your requested transfer.

Once you have added your pick up point and drop off point the software dynamically works out the route and timings via a live google map.  This means that you may get fluctuations in price for the same job at different times of the day.

For example, If you are using our system at 12 noon to get a quote or make a booking for an airport transfer from Derby to Heathrow airport the software will look at the live google map and calculate that the best route is via the A52/M1/M25 and will price accordingly based on the traffic and roads at that point. If however you try and book the same journey whilst sat at your computer at 22:00 the same evening you may find that the M1 is closed due to roadworks so google maps may take you A52/M1/M69/A45/M40/M25 which although may be the quicker route would add an extra 40 miles onto the price.

So think about these things if the price is coming out at more than an earlier quote you got and maybe try again the following day.

It is also worth ensuring you put your exact pick up points in, including postcode and house number if you can, as that will make a difference to the overall price due to using a general pick up area rather than a specific one.
