Let us help you make the most of your next adventure
Winter 2017 has started with the rain. The period of cold, lazy rainy days is in front of us. The thermometer scale seems to be too lazy to climb anywhere higher than 14 degrees. Our daily routines will slightly change now. We put on more clothes, eat heavy winter food, walk less and drive our cars more.
Mother Nature has already painted all Victoria’s mountains in white, covering their sandstones and wildflowers with the snow, telling us that the winter season has started and calling us to enjoy the season. Melbourne’s surrounding hills are now covered with this cold but also romantic white powder that offers so much pleasure to everyone who enjoys winter activities.
Urban Chauffeur Cars love the winter too. It provides us with an opportunity to offer our clients transfer services to any of Victoria’s famous mountains.
With our luxury vans, you can travel safely and restfully with your family or friends without worrying whether your car will reach the destination or if you require special equipment or skills to drive on those snowy and frozen roads. Your skiing gear can fit in our van and you do not have to pay an additional fee for your car park. You can organise a return transfer with us and we will wait for you to get you back to Melbourne. We can drive you to Victoria’s most popular ski resorts such as: Falls Creek, Mt Buller, Mt Hotham or Mt Buffalo.
If your desire is just to see the snow and return the same day, we can organise that too. Our cars are equipped for the snowy, frozen terrain and our chauffeurs are experienced to drive on those roads. Your safety and comfort is our priority.
If you are visiting Melbourne and Victoria’s skiing resorts and need a safe, professional transfer, call the experts at Urban Chauffeur Cars.
We will help you discover the joy of travel.
How to Avoid Traffic in Autumn
May is already at the door and the weather is reminding us that Summer’s days are over and Winter is well on the way. Everything in nature starts slowing down; the days are shorter and the nights are longer. Trees are transforming from their beautiful green colour into a more beautiful spectrum of colours and the streets are jamming with traffic, as walking and bicycle riding is behind us.
Driving a car is becoming more appropriate on these increasingly rainy cold days, making the roads packed with cars. You may be wondering how you will make it to the meeting as you are sitting in a car trapped in one way street traffic. There is no turning back and all you can do is sit and wait while anxiously watching the clock turn its arms towards your business meeting time. It is even more unbearable when you are on the way to the airport, knowing that your plane will not wait for you. Your Uber driver knows only to follow the GPS and does not know the tricks in avoiding and beating traffic.
Such frustrating moments can be reduced or avoided if you call Urban Chauffeur Cars and book your transfer with us.
Our chauffeur cars are our business. Our chauffeurs are our business. Our customer service is our business. Our business is represented professionally in every way. Urban Chauffeur Cars guarantee the best and professional service you can get. Once you get to know us, you will enjoy talking to our friendly staff, riding in our clean and comfortable cars while reading our Blogs on the website.
You will soon know that we have a new website that is our pride and joy. It offers you a current price for your transfer without even having to call us. You can also send us an enquiry or just make a booking. Our website also gives you a chance to subscribe to our monthly newsletter. Our newsletter will inform you about the latest events in Melbourne, our special offers and other valued information.

Begin and End Your Family Holiday in Style and Luxury
The Easter school holiday is currently on their way. You finally have a chance to spend some quality time with your family. Your children are delighted that they will visit all those entertainment parks on Gold Coast or they will ride a roller coaster in Sydney’s Luna Park. Have you decided how you will fulfil all this free time with your kids? All those places like cinemas, museums, the zoo and the beach are also interesting and fun. Your kids will remember those moments forever
If you are going away and taking your family with you, you will need transfer to the airport. When the whole family is travelling together, there is usually a lot of luggage that may not fit into a sedan car, an SUV or Van would be most suitable in these situations. You have an option to call a maxi taxi but you cannot book it in advance and it is always a bit risky when you are calling a taxi at the last minute.
Urban Chauffeur Cars offer transfers for families with its SUV or Van. You can book in advance and worry no more. You can rest assured that our driver will arrive at your address in time and you will get to the airport as you have planned.
Your holiday will start from the time you sit in our luxury car. You will appreciate how relaxed you are feeling in our car that seems like gliding in the air and not driving on the road. All of our cars are driven by a professional chauffeur, who are not only highly experienced drivers but also know the roads like the back of their hands. That is the case with all our drivers. They are accredited with taxi licences, they have many years of experience in this business and will find the best and fastest way to drive you to your destination on time.
To book your transfer you can go to our booking page or you can call us on 0412 244 585.
Celebrate Easter with Urban VHA Car
Did you know?
April is the 4th month of the year. In a calendar, this is the first month with 30 days. The first day of April is known as Fools’ Day and Earth Day.
The name April originally came from the Roman word Aprilis, meaning ‘to open’. In April, in the Northern Hemisphere, it is spring when everything in nature opens. Trees and gardens start to flower, the air smells sweet and fresh, animals come out of hibernation, the birds fly back from the South to settle, and bees and butterflies begin their diligent work picking the nectar from the flowers and trees. However, in the Southern Hemisphere, April is Autumn and the harvest season. The fruits are ripening and ready for picking, trees transform from green to a rainbow of colours, people are catching the last sunny days to enjoy the warmth and many are excited about the four-day Easter holiday.
The first day of April begins with April Fool’s day. It is not known for sure why and when this day was proclaimed fool’s day, but it has been bringing joy and fun to people for a long time. On April 1st people usually do funny pranks to family and friends and then say “April fools”!
April’s birthstone is the diamond. The zodiac signs for people born between 21 March and 19 April is Aries and Taurus sign are for those born between 20 April – 20 May. The birth flower of April is typically the Sweet Pea or the Daisy.
April is also a great month for weddings, with the weather still warm but not too hot, and the trees making for a beautiful backdrop for photos.

Say “I Do” for Urban Limo Wedding Transfer
She finally says those magic words and with that will come new experiences that the two of you will explore in your lives together.
We will leave this thought for now and focus on the next important step, the wedding.
Weddings tend to be a stressful time, not just groom and bride but both of their families. Everyone wants to participate in this event and everyone has their own opinion on how the event should be organised. Mothers are under pressure as they want the best of everything for their daughter or son and there is always a bit of competition between two of them. Fathers are under pressure because they are the ones who are often proving financial help for this glamour. The Bride wants to look the best on the big day and the groom wants his bride not to worry and enjoy to the day. The list of things to do grows daily and the day is approaching. Finding the venue, organising the music, photography and videography, the cake, dress, flowers, invitations right through to the choice of the best man and the maid of honour, and so on and so on, the list feels like it’s never ending. And just when you think you’ve got it all you realise that one also very important part of the ceremony was left out the transportation.
Urban chauffeur cars offers you transfer services with luxury sedans and limousines. We have a range of fleet from Mercedes, Chryslers, Genesis as well as luxury vans and limousines up to 11 passengers. All you need to do is to contact us at least a month or two prior and we will do everything to find your desired car. Our prices are comparative and there is no reason to look elsewhere.
If you are planning your wedding call us now!

Chauffeur Cars Winery Transfers
Yarra Valley Region is famous for a wonderful range of cellar doors, all reflecting the diversity of styles and approaches. This beautiful, cool-climate region is just an hour’s drive from Melbourne. There are over 70 wineries in this region. You can pass by Healesville with its sanctuary, a home of Australian native animals. Further north, you can visit the picturesque village of Marysville and, if you are into the beautiful hill country, you can visit Nillumbik, Hurstbridge and Kangaroo Ground. The vineyards in this region are planted out to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasting and cellar door sales of these outstanding wines are available at any winery you decide to visit.
However, it is not all just about wine tasting. Many of these wineries also provide accommodation, restaurants and venues for corporate meetings, conferences or weddings.
You can choose to indulge in team building or individual activities such as hot air ballooning, Healesville Sanctuary, fishing, wandering the walking trails or just relaxing in the beautiful winery estate gardens.
Urban Chauffeur Cars can assist you with a transfer whether it is a relaxing getaway or business conference. Book your chauffeur car return transfer with us for your relaxing wine tasting. Your chauffeur will wait for you and drive you back home or to your hotel. If you are staying overnight at the estate, it is advisable to book us for your return transfer, as public transport and taxis can become quite unreliable in such remote areas. All our vehicles offer luxury, comfort and style. Choose from luxury sedans for up to 4 passengers to luxury vans for up to 7 passengers. We can also organise a bus for larger groups up to 25 passengers.
If you are planning a wedding, ask about our stretch limousines.
