Home and Convenience Drive
There is no need to cover the many reasons not to drive drunk – the consequences are well-known. With the Home Drive service so easily available, there is also no justification for taking a chance. “Relax, have a great evening, and let Home Drive take you and your vehicle home safely.” Home Drive offers user-friendly online bookings, with an automated service which will SMS your driver’s name and mobile number to you on the afternoon of your booking so that, should you wish to change a collection detail, you are able to contact your driver directly at any time. Your driving team consists of a back-up driver and vehicle, and lead driver who will drive you home in your own vehicle. His back-up driver will follow and collect him from the member’s house.
If you require a driver's assistance to get you from point A to point B in one of the Home Drive vehicles, our professional team of standby drivers will be at your service. Whether you're running between meetings, need an airport transfer or if your car has been booked in for a service and you need to be collected from the dealership or your child needs to be collected from school, you can rely on Home Drive for assistance. Pre-booking is highly preferred.
