6 Reasons a Sydney Chauffeur is Not Just For The Rich and Famous

With the long lockdown finally ending for those of us in Sydney, at Friendly Transfers we are looking forward to welcoming our chauffeur service clients back, old and new. 


Before long, your summer calendar is going to be chocked to the brim with events trying to catch up on the last 18 months, and we want to help. A Sydney chauffeur is not just for VIPs and celebrities, they are a convenient, affordable, and safe way to travel for everyone whether it’s: 

  • Door-to-door – getting you from A to B as effective as possible, taking secret routes to avoid traffic and get you to your event on time.
  • Special Events –like travelling to a friend’s wedding that is finally happening after it has been moved 3 times so far.
  • Or, experiences– because you just want a custom driving tour to explore and appreciate Sydney after being locked in!
As the owner and one of the many experienced drivers here at Friendly Transfers, I know exactly how we can help you make your travel easy and stress-free. So here are my top reasons you should use try our Sydney chauffeur service at least once this summer.

1. It’s great value for money

I’ll start with the elephant in the room because it’s not as expensive as you might think to hire a Sydney chauffeur.

When you get a taxi you’re metered and you’re already paying a flat rate as soon as you get in the car before the meter starts. So you really don’t know how much it’s going to cost until you get to the destination. Plus, there’s no incentive for them to take the fastest route to get you there on time, because the longer you’re in the car, the more money it means for them.

Car-sharing apps like Uber can be a great alternative for driving around, but the prices fluctuate based on how busy they are. When it’s peak hours and demand rises, so do the prices. Plus, it’s not a service that is designed to be reliable, sometimes you’ll open the app and you’re stuck with a note telling you there are no drivers in your area. 

So what’s the alternative and how much does it cost to hire a personal driver? 

At Friendly Transfers, I’m proud to say we charge less per KM than other competitive Sydney chauffeur services, and you are quoted a price before your trip so you can plan accordingly. Our aim is an inclusive, personable service that just works for you, and no being caught out by ‘added extras’.

2. Save your sanity with parking (and traffic)

When factoring in costs, don’t forget that Sydney parking could not only cost you A$40 for a couple of hours in the city, but time, effort, and stress trying to find that elusive space. As we are dropping you off and picking you up, you don’t have to worry about parking fees, or finding a space that is miles away from where you need to be. 

One of our professional and experienced drivers will be ready to collect you and deliver you on time, every time. No muss, no fuss.

3. Ride in style, and make an impression 

How you travel can make an impression and really elevate a special occasion. Show someone you care with a chauffeur service to celebrate, or simply enjoy the luxury you deserve. With plenty of legroom and luggage space, it doesn’t matter what the event is, you can ride in style and keep perfectly composed for your arrival. 

4. Start the event early 

When one of our Sydney chauffeurs collects you, your event has already begun. No stressing about traffic, getting there on time or getting lost in the process. For clients travelling together, this means you can chat, lift your spirits and simply sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Why not buy a Sydney chauffeur service as a gift for a loved one? The celebration starts from the moment we pick you up. 

5. Stay safe and be comfortable 

From early morning pickups and late drop-offs to catering to vulnerable adults, we have NDIS transfer experience and offer a safe, professional, and inclusive experience so you can travel to and from your event safely. Have the peace of mind that you’ll be picked up and collected without having to travel the streets alone or on public transport in unsafe situations. 

6. Get local knowledge

All of our drivers have extensive experience and are Sydney-based which means they have the insider knowledge to make your tour special. We can create personalised tours specifically for you from the best places to visit off the beaten track, to the ultimate routes that avoid the traffic so you can finally get out and see parts of Sydney you didn’t know existed.

Ultimately, a Sydney chauffeur service can be a luxurious treat, a gift to your loved one (or yourself), or you can reap the benefits day-to-day and door-to-door. But if nothing else, you must try it at least once, you won’t regret it.
