Our History

Travelhire was established in 1970 to provide a prestige chauffeured car service for the corporate market. It has since grown to become one of the market leaders in the field of corporate car hire with a portfolio of blue chip clients.

We have a proven track record of providing a first class service that has been based on our reliability and dependability and by always being where we are supposed to be, when we are supposed to be there.

In December 2006, Travelhire merged with another established chauffeur drive company, Carriages Executive Cars, to create one of the largest chauffeured car services in the south of England. The merger created a combined fleet of more than 60 company-owned, luxury vehicles together with an exceptional management team that remains in place today.

In 2009, Travelhire took the decision to move away from its exclusively Mercedes based fleet of saloon vehicles and, at the invitation of BMW UK, became the first major chauffeur drive company in the United Kingdom to join the BMW Partnership Programme. As well as now providing BMW UK with all of its outsourced ground transport requirements, Travelhire now operates the largest fleet of BMW saloon vehicles in the United Kingdom.

Corporate Events

Travelhire specialises in the logistical planning and co-ordination of the ground transport elements of many corporate, entertainment and sporting events. We are able to provide large fleets of identical vehicles and often arrange for these vehicles to carry livery depicting logos and images that are relevant to the event in question.

Our fleet management team and on-site event co-ordinators ensure that the assignment runs smoothly and act as a liaison between the client, the event organiser and the event delegates.

Selected for their knowledge, experience and personality, the members of our driving team are fully uniformed (sporting our famous pink tie), always prompt and discreet.

Each member of the team holds a valid Public Carriage Office (PCO) Licence and has undergone a current Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check that has shown no relevant criminal convictions.

All of our Tier 1 chauffeurs have been security vetted to "SC Standard" by HM Foreign & Commonwealth Office and each also carries a Personal Identity Card for verification purposes.

The team is trained not only in advanced driving techniques but also to consider the comfort and safety of their passenger(s).

Our success has been based on our exceptional standards of presentation, punctuality and reliability and our flexible approach to the changing needs of our clients.
