What is the difference between a chauffeur and a driver?

A driver is simply someone who operates a vehicle, they will get you where you need to go... while a chauffeur is a professional who is hired to drive. For example, taxi services like Uber, Lyft and DiDi allow just about anyone to become a driver, and their actions, professional look of their clothing and car are at their own discretion. Chauffeurs however, are professionals accountable for their actions to their clients, and the professional image of their chauffeur company, and as a result, work hard to serve customers and strive to always look and act professionally.

Uber, Lyft, DiDi and other ride share drivers often use their own vehicle for transport and taxi services generally cannot match the high-quality vehicles provided by a professional chauffeured transportation company. Another difference between a ride share service and a corporate car transport service is the ability to choose exactly which vehicle will arrive to transport you to your destination.

While ride share drivers may not always be discreet and trustworthy (who could forget UberGate?), a chauffeur respects your privacy so you can be assured that phone-call or conversation in the back of the car will remain private.

BeDriven only chooses professional Chauffeurs who drive first-rate vehicles, always look and act professionally and want what’s best for clients.
