FAQs

Q. Do I have to belong to DMD to use the service?

A. No, Driving Miss Daisy offers a pre-booked transportation service to anyone who requires it.

 

Q. But Driving Miss Daisy is expensive isn’t it?

A. No – Driving Miss Daisy prices are very competitive  and often less than taxis.  If you have a Total Mobility card or Voucher book, you get this saving as well. Driving Miss Daisy services are priced based on the needs of the client and we suggest you give us a call for a quote.

 

Q. Do you have to be elderly or disabled to use DMD?

A. No, whilst we do cater for the elderly and disabled, we can provide our services to anyone who requires us and we do a lot of work for ACC with clients of every age.

 

Q. Are you available in the evenings and weekends?

A. Yes, our services are available 7 days a week.  Pre-booking is therefore very important to ensure your local Daisy is able to fit you into their schedule.

 

Q. Can I take friends with me in the car?

A. Yes, the more the merrier!  The fare can be shared amongst the passengers so please ask your Daisy for a quote when you pre-book.

 

Q. Can you take me to the airport?

A. Yes, absolutely we can take you to the airport and arrange the time to pick you up when you return from your trip.  We are always happy to help with carrying luggage, checking in and escorting you to the departure gate if necessary. Give your local Daisy a call to pre-book your Airport trip.

 

Q. I only want to go down the road to the shops, do you do short trips like that?

A. Yes, it would be our pleasure to take you down to the local shop and come back later to take you home.  We can also stay with you and assist you with your shopping as well as  help you unpack and put your shopping away in the pantry when we take you home.

 

Q. Can I ask you to do multiple shopping tasks over one booking?

A. Yes, you design the journey and we will take you there! So you may like to go, for example, to shop at the supermarket, then the butcher, then the post office and the gift store and then home again!

 

Q. There are three phone numbers on your business card, which one I am supposed to use?

A.  Call the local number as this will ring through to the office as well as our local Daisy’s mobile.

 

Q. Can you take me on an out-of -town trip?

A. Yes we can, and we are happy to help you if you wish to plan a special trip!  Give us a call to discuss your requirements so we can give you a quote and make your trip as convenient and comfortable as possible.
