Private Transport Over Public Transport During A Pandemic

The government recommends during the current pandemic to avoid public transport where possible; when travelling for work, school or other activities; to avoid coming into contact with others who may be carrying the coronavirus. Recently we’ve seen an increase in; packed tubes, trains and buses whilst the nation tries to get back to work or school. However, with infections now increasing on a daily basis, it may be ideal to consider private transport instead.

Benefits of Private Transport Over Public Transport

Hiring private transportations such as a Chauffeur Service is less risky and recommended by the government since this reduces the number of people you come into contact when travelling.

Cost Saving

In addition, if you share transport with other members of your family or support bubble when travelling the cost is reduced significantly; compared to taking a train from Leicester to London, you can instead travel in luxury and safety with an Executive Chauffeur Service. You can travel in our executive Mercedes S and E class vehicles or our MPV minivans ideal for larger parties.

Furthermore, we can take you from Leicestershire to your exact destination, unlike public transport which is a false economy when travelling large distances, such as from Leicestershire to London. Taking a train for example will mean you arrive at the station such as St Pancreas, you will then need to take a taxi or the underground to get to your location. Hiring an Executive Chauffeur Service will ensure you get to your destination on time, since we plan ahead, unlike trains which can be delayed. Our professional service takes you straight to your location, without any extra stops or costs involved.

All of our cars are fully sanitised and decontaminated before and after every transfer with antibacterial cleaning products. Thereby destroying bacteria, germs, viruses and spores, ensuring passengers and drivers safety at all times. We also have Smart Car Air Purifiers installed in all of our vehicles to destroy 99.99% of airborne viruses.

Furthermore, we have installed interior partition screens in all of our vehicles, between passengers and drivers; to prevent the potential spread of germs and viruses, which you won’t find in buses on trains. We also provide complimentary PPE such as masks and hand gel; for you to use during the journey and keep afterwards.


Travelling for business or other personal reasons may be seen as a deterrent at the moment during a pandemic. However due to significantly fewer cars on the road traffic is the quietest it’s ever been, which means you can easily get to your destination faster. Furthermore hiring an Executive Chauffeur Service will ensure you go straight to the door from our vehicle; rather than waiting for public transport such as going from the train to the tube which increases exposure further to the virus.
