A driver is simply someone who operates a vehicle, while a chauffeur is a professional who is hired to drive. For example, consider a taxi service like Uber or Lyft, which allows just about anyone to become a driver. On the other hand, Chauffeurs are accountable for their actions, and as a result, work hard to serve customers.

Personal Driving Services exclusively uses experienced Chauffeurs.  A part time Uber/Lyft driver with a valid driver’s license does not provide the expertise capable of driving you cross country 10-12 hours a day in a safe, comfortable environment, and while maintaining a pre-determined travel schedule.  PDS provides concierge service for all clients, hotel reservations, pet-friendly hotel suggestions, diet-sensitive restaurants (where available), and assistance to passengers with ambulatory needs.
