We are based 10 minutes from Edinburgh Airport with a base also only 10 minutes from Glasgow Airport (Sister company West of Scotland Chauffeur Drive Ltd) making us ideally placed for providing convenient business travel from Scotland’s two main international arrival points.
We provide a free meet & greet service to all our clients arriving as standard. We shall be waiting for our clients at the arrival gate and accompany them to the baggage hall before assisting in the pick-up of their luggage. We shall then escort them to the vehicle which will, where possible, be parked a short walk away in the internal car park saving the client from the need to venture outside in our unpredictable Scottish weather.
We monitor all incoming flights on the internet and would hope to keep our car’s waiting time to a minimum, however in the event of unavoidable delays we may have to add additional costs.
All our chauffeurs and chauffeuses are fully trained to our rigorous inhouse standards of driving skills and customer care by our Managing Directors thus ensuring an extremely high level of road safety knowledge and a comfortable, relaxed and pleasurable experience. Many come from a background in customer service and some are fully qualified DSA Approved Driving Instructors.
We are also one of the few companies that can offer lone female passengers the comfort of a relaxed environment which for some female clients can only truly be achieved by having a female chauffeuse at the wheel. Our chauffeurs are smartly dressed in grey uniform, white shirts, grey tie and cap, black shoes with large company branded silver umbrellas available for our famous Scottish weather (business suits instead of uniforms for discretion on request). They are there to meet & greet you at your pick-up point and will always come in and ask for you by name and will never sound their horn outside.

Film Festival, Feb 2009
“The 2009 edition of the Glasgow Film Festival was a rip-roaring success. We saw more than 24,000 people come through the doors across 11 city centre venues. With these films came a varied selection of VIP guests, Directors, Producers and Actors all requiring fist class service and hospitality. This year Glasgow Film Festival worked with Graham Ogg proprietor of West of Scotland Chauffeur Drive Ltd. Graham provided a first class service with a personal touch. His polite and friendly team entertained guests and catered to the ever changing schedule. This is a testament to their flexibility and professional approach. Glasgow Film Festival will continue to use this company and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.”
