It’s that time of year again where this bloke from Stoke throws on a tuxedo and attends the EE BAFTA awards down in London. This year’s prestigious ceremony was being held at the Royal Albert Hall and this one day in my calendar year is an excuse to go all out with extravagance of the highest order. In addition to booking the beautiful Jumeirah Carlton Hotel and making a reservation at the highly exclusive GONG at the Shard restaurant. The day had to start as it meant to go on. I had to arrive in style. I didn’t have to think twice about which company I was going to book and that was VIP Chauffeur Car Hire.
VIP Chauffeur Car Hire has a fleet of some of the finest cars money can buy. From their offices in London and Blackpool, their services cover every inch of the UK. Whether it be a wedding, prom, business or shopping trip these guys have you covered with great customer service and effortless booking.
VIP has a variety of cars at their disposal and even a yacht for hire! They really know how to spoil their customers and their fleet makes me jealous to my very core. The gallery on the VIP website looks like an episode of MTV Cribs on steroids. From Rolls Royce Phantoms to a Bentley Flying Spur and even a 16 seater Hummer there really is a car suited to all tastes, styles and occasions.
When I rang up to make my booking Emma at VIP Chauffeur Car Hire was straight on the ball. Lovely, friendly communication mixed with an effortless booking. I picked a date, a time of pick-up and just like that the booking was made. I could put my feet up and relax knowing that the second I arrived at London Euston station on the day of the BAFTAS that a Rolls Royce would be there waiting for me.
Just 24 hours before the trip I was sent my drivers details including a contact number should I wish to make any additional requests. This was a nice touch as most chauffeur companies I have dealt with don’t send you details until an hour before the pick-up. This leaves you with uncertainty as it’s very last minute and puts you on edge. Having the confirmation and details 24 hours before means there is no need to stress or worry about a driver who may / may not arrive.
As I was on the train down to Euston I received a text from my driver Pelu which included more details and the option of booking the Rolls for an extended period of time than my original booking just in-case I needed it. Once again a nice touch and the flexibility was very much appreciated.
The Rolls Royce Ghost
As I stepped out of Euston station I could see the Rolls Royce parked across the road and instantly started grinning like a child on Christmas morning. The black grill of the rolls on its shiny white body gave it a menacing look and my god was I excited to jump inside the back.
The car was well maintained, clean and tidy and Pelu our driver was incredibly friendly and kept the conversation flowing throughout the entire ride. It’s always nice to talk to the drivers rather than riding in silence and it made the experience all that more social, bubbly and relaxing. The interior of the car was nothing short of breathtaking, I wasn’t a huge fan of the cream interior but that’s just my personal preference. I much prefer the more outrageous interiors such as straight red or white but now I’m just being picky!
Naturally, when we got to the hotel I had to have the obligatory photo with our driver Pelu. That’s just how much of a nice guy he was! I had only met this gentleman 30 minutes ago and already I want to have a photo with him to include in this review. It was also an excuse to show off the Louis Vuitton Damier Azure belt, but that’s another story altogether!
Complimentary water was provided but hardly a sip was taken as I was too busy taking in my London surroundings. Seeing people’s reactions to the car as we drove on through the congested London traffic was quite amusing. The windows in the back were tinted so it felt all that more private and exclusive and I felt like a rockstar when we eventually arrived at the hotel.
When I arrived at the check-in desk at the hotel a member of staff asked me about the car which made me feel incredible. It’s amazing what a swanky car can do for your confidence!
VIP Chauffeur Car Hire Overview
I can’t think of any other chauffeur company who I’ve had such a smooth pleasant transaction with. There was no stress or worry and it all felt so effortless. This is exactly what a VIP service should feel like. The car was incredible, the pricing was surprisingly reasonable and the staff are some of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking to and dealing with. I wish I could come down to London more often and jump into every car their own!
Thank you VIP Chauffeur Car Hire for making my trip to the BAFTAS all that more memorable. I fully recommend VIP to anyone who wants a bespoke professional service of the utmost quality.
