The company you contact will want to know fine details about your journey such as collection addresses and times. Have this handy! Think about how much time you would like your chauffeur and vehicle to be in attendance as this is a vital part of the costing – if you’re unsure just talk to the company who will be happy to guide you.

Book early

Wedding cars get booked up quickly so if you have your heart set on something do book it straight away.

See the car

When you have decided what car you want to book arrange a time with the company to go and see it. If for any reason they refuse or avoid you seeing the car, walk away!

When you go, you can always ask to see a copy of their insurance, public liability and MOT certificate for the vehicle if you feel more comfortable. There is no reason that they shouldn’t be able to show you this.

Before the day

So, you’ve booked your car – and the chauffeur has taken a deposit and you are just a month away from your wedding day.

Give the company a call and confirm the booking. Make sure they have the correct date and time and they plan to send the same vehicle you have booked. If you have a wedding planner, they will do this for you.

Finally, the day before, make another call. Check all the details with the company again and confirm the venue and payment details.

Contacting the driver

Emotions will be flowing and you’ll be excited – but it is very important you take the drivers mobile number so you can find him when you need him if you have a returned journey booked. Try and do this before you arrive at the venue. Again, this will be done by the wedding planner if you have one.
