We are here to Help!!

As a Transport and Touring company we remain humbled by the continued support and understanding of our loyal clientele and members of staff which is appreciated beyond measure and for anyone new to chauffeur travel we extend a warm welcome.

As many of you already know our chauffeur service provides a safe and uncrowded alternative to public transport to get travellers to their destination and whilst the journey may, on occasion, take a little longer you will be travelling with one of our dedicated chauffeurs in comfort, cleanliness and security so if you have to travel for business or personal reasons, we are here to help you do so in safety.

As the Covid-19 situation is a rapidly evolving one, we continue to closely monitor developments, and following advice from the Scottish Government, the Chief Medical Officer and other agencies whilst endeavouring to keep our staff and passengers continually updated during this extremely challenging and worrying time.

Please be assured that the safety of all is paramount and whilst we have closed our office for the time being, Edinburgh Executive Travel will continue its operation to allow us to serve others and hopefully by working together we can continue to make this happen!

Travel Update

Let us remain as positive as possible and in doing so we will ensure that each journey starts with the following:

  • Our vehicles:

    We have installed a purpose built partition with toughened perspex, this separates the driver completely from the passengers and is fitted to our Mercedes E Class & V Class 7 seat MPVs.

  • Daily Cleaning and Disinfecting:

    • Pre-trip and post-trip, our chauffeurs use disinfectant-grade products that are approved and effective at killing COVID-19.
    • Special attention is taken to disinfect commonly used surfaces of the vehicle, like seatbelts, door handles, head rests as well as all other passenger touch points.
    • Additionally, deep vehicle cleanings are managed every night.
    • Disposable face masks and & and sanitizers are offered to passengers
    • Sanitizing wipes are available to all passengers who wish to wipe down surfaces themselves.
  • Health & Safety Protocols:

    • Each morning the chauffeur provides their temperature to ensure he is safe to drive
    • Every chauffeur washes their hands using hand sanitizer immediately before picking up passengers and after dropping them off at their destination. They also avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth, and cough or sneeze into their elbows, inside their shirt or into a tissue.
    • Chauffeurs do not initiate handshakes and avoid all personal contact with passengers, hotel concierge staff, or any other person involved in the trip, maintaining precautionary social distancing measures.
    • Chauffeurs only handle luggage after obtaining consent from the lead passenger and thoroughly disinfecting their hands immediately before and after doing so or using disposable gloves when doing so.
    • Printed reading materials, tissues, candies, and bottled water are removed from the vehicles.
    • Chauffeurs increase ventilation by opening windows, replacing air filters regularly, keeping fans “on” and re-circulation “off” to ensure fresh air flow.

To keep us all on the move we have decided to reduce our standard tariff with substantial discounts now available for the duration of the Covid-19 restrictions for travel throughout the United Kingdom.

Allow me to take this opportunity to send our best wishes to you, your families and colleagues. Please stay safe, fit and healthy.
