Cornish Chauffeur is an exclusive private hire chauffeur company based in Probus,  near Truro  Cornwall,  that collects and delivers VIP’s to any destination in a comfortable, luxury executive car.

We value high standards of service, punctuality and vehicle cleanliness with a polite and helpful driver who understand discretion and confidentiality.

Cornish chauffeur does not regard itself as a taxi service. The aim is to provide something that offers more

Our service is aimed at discerning clients who need a reliable, prestigious  service for themselves, their personnel, hotel guests, visiting VIP’s, clients, celebrities and others who appreciate being transported in comfort, style and elegance.

                            Personal Business and Social Calendar

You may not be able to fulfil all or some of your business and social engagement owing to a variety of reasons.  However,  if  for such events you are without a friend or a partner to accompany you, then you  may wish to consider the option of having myself to fill the temporary role if mutually acceptable.

Tact and discretion are assured at all times and  in these circumstances personal arrangements and fees would be by negotiation.

Whether the service  is local or to distant destinations, business connections, air and sea ports, sightseeing or sporting events we deliver the same high standards.

Would you and your partner like to be chauffeured on a very special occasion for a country picnic, a lovely romantic meal and a drink with your loved ones?.

                                            Airport & ferry runs

                                Travelling as stress free as possible

We are familiar with all the airports, seaports and ferry ports. We understand the importance of being prompt, in time and not out of time!


Nigel  will make sure you arrive at the correct departure point and will help you with your luggage and other belongings.

When it comes to being collected we can monitor your flight so we are there to meet and greet you even if the flight is delayed or sometimes if it is early.


Taking clients to meet their cruise ships is something of a speciality as we work closely with a number of leading cruise specialists. When it comes to meeting you at the end of your cruise we work with the cruise company to make sure we have your disembarkation time.

We will meet you with a name board to avoid any confusion and assist you with your luggage to the car then take you comfortably to your home.


Of course we will take your luggage into the premises and if you wish we can take it upstairs, and it’s no problem for Nigel to stop on the way to collect  some fresh milk for that first cup of tea or coffee!  It is often a good idea to exchange mobile phone numbers in case the situation should change at the last minute.

We believe in a good old fashioned approach to chauffeuring which is that the chauffeur should be as accommodating & resourceful and attentive as your butler would be when you are at home.

If you need your chauffeur to run a few errands whilst you're in a meeting or to book a restaurant for dinner at the end of the day,  you only need to ask him.
