The questions and answers listed are some of those that we get asked on a regular basis but if we haven’t answered all your questions then please get in touch.
Do I have to belong to Driving Miss Daisy to use the service?
No, Driving Miss Daisy offers a pre-booked companion driving service to anyone who requires it.
But Driving Miss Daisy is expensive isn’t it?
No, Driving Miss Daisy prices are affordable. If you belong to the Total Mobility Scheme (half price taxi chits or TM Card), you receive a discounted fare. Driving Miss Daisy services are calculated on the needs of the client and we suggest you give us a call for a quote.
Do you have to be elderly or disabled to use Driving Miss Daisy?
No, whilst we do cater for the elderly and disabled, we can provide our services to anyone who requires us. We hold the companion driving contract for ACC and consequently drive clients of any age
Are you available in the evenings and weekends?
Yes, our services are available 7 days a week. Pre-booking is therefore very important to ensure your local Daisy is able to book you into their schedule.
Can I take friends with me in the car?
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.
Can you take me to the airport?
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.
I only want to go down the road to the shops, do you do short trips like that?
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.
Can I ask you to do multiple shopping tasks over one booking?
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 home again.
Can you take me on an out of town trip?
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, we will provide you with a quote and make your trip as convenient and comfortable as possible.
