With interstate and overseas travel finally back on the agenda, there’s never been a better time to plan that long overdue trip. Whether you are travelling for leisure or work, airline travel can be both exciting and stressful, and with the added pressures of being COVID-safe, it’s important to look for things that can make your travelling experience easier. That’s why you should consider chauffeur cars for your airport transfers. For premium chauffeur cars, Melbourne travellers rely on Diplomat. Here’s a few reasons why you should skip the taxis, Ubers and shuttle buses and book a private chauffeur car for your next holiday or business trip.

Safety and Cleanliness

While taxis and ride-sharing services have a certain level of cleanliness they need to adhere to, you can’t always be certain that the vehicle you get has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitised after every journey, and you can never be sure just how qualified the driver is and how concerned they are with your safety. Public buses and airport shuttles transfer thousands of passengers per day so it’s almost impossible for them to be clean at all times.

With professional chauffeur car hire, you can travel with ease knowing that the vehicle in which you travel has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitised for your health and wellbeing. The drivers are professionally trained and follow all necessary safety protocols and guidelines to ensure all passengers are safe and comfortable.


The last thing you want to do after a flight is hunt around for a taxi, shuttle bus or other mode of transportation to get you where you need to go. Renting a car takes time, can cost a small fortune and requires mounds of paperwork. Shuttle buses won’t drop you right at your doorstep and a standard taxi may not be big enough to accommodate all of your luggage, especially if travelling with strollers or oversized items.

Pre-booking a chauffeur car allows you to choose the exact vehicle that will suit your needs and your driver will be ready and waiting for you when you land. As soon as you are ready to go, your car is too, and your driver will even help with your luggage and offer you fresh bottled water for the drive to your destination.


Worried about missing your flight? Want to be sure you arrive with time to spare for a relaxing and pleasant journey? Taxis can be unreliable and what if there’s no Ubers around? When you hire chauffeur cars, you can be sure they will arrive when they say they will, giving you the peace of mind that you will arrive at the airport with plenty of time to prepare for your flight.

Professional Drivers

Private chauffeur cars employ only the most professional drivers so you can trust in their reliability, safety, discretion, and knowledge of the best routes to take for an efficient trip. Even with thorough planning, things can happen – unexpected roadworks, an accident on the freeway. Professional chauffeur drivers can swiftly navigate around these challenges as they know the best and fastest roads to take regardless of the situation. Their professionalism extends beyond just operating the vehicle, they pay special attention to every detail to ensure the highest level of comfort and safety for every passenger.
