Can you pay someone to drive you around?

Through our reservation system, you can hire a driver to act as your personal chauffeur during the day or night, no matter how many stops you need to make. Our driver arrives at your house at the requested time, dressed in professional attire, ready to take you in your vehicle wherever you want to go. Driving a car on a cross-country road trip is never easy. When you hire a driver through Professional Drivers, a safe and hassle-free ride awaits you.

Instead of worrying about driving and road distractions, hiring our private chauffeur can allow you to focus on having more fun with your family. Having a driver behind the wheel can improve your experience if you're traveling with family or friends. The best thing about having a driver you can trust during a holiday trip is that you don't have to miss any of the fun because it's your turn to drive. You can drive your car across the country, but it adds extra miles to your odometer, it can be exhausting and stressful, and the additional costs make it expensive.

Most often, these drivers will be students or retirees, as this type of work is a popular side effort. As you probably know, the risk of asking someone you know to drive your car is a little higher than hiring a professional driver. At the end of the trip, the driver unpacked the van for the passenger in a temporary housing facility, a hotel. Your insurance could cover the damage, perhaps at a reduced rate, if you didn't add the driver to your policy.

Then I rented a small motorhome and Bill hired a second driver to help me drive one of the vehicles and for the return later on that trip. But what about the downsides? You may need to purchase additional insurance coverage to cover the driver during the trip. You can also book an independent driver, ask someone you know to drive your car, or send it with a car transport company. After recharging the vehicle at the beginning of the second day, the driver set out on the nearly 400-mile journey to Pismo Beach.

Self-employed drivers tend to charge by the hour and add the cost of additional expenses, such as gas, accommodation, meals, and a one-way plane ticket home. Interstate 5 through Oregon, for the most part, is a curvy experience for a normal ride, but due to these specialized circumstances, the trip had an additional layer of difficulty for the PDS driver. I expect Andy to drive my wheelchair-accessible van from the San Francisco Bay Area to Southern California to visit my family for Christmas. To help ease the fears of the passenger who had expressed anxiety about leaving their belongings in the car overnight, the PDS driver unloaded the luggage at the hotel when he arrived in Redding.
