When I first heard the name “Drunk Drivers” as the name of a taxi service I thought to myself well isn’t this the OPPOSITE of what we want, name not withstanding, I did have the opportunity to use Drunk Drivers myself and I actually had an excellent experience with this service. I think it fills a void that has been missing for some time now.
I am an avid feter for the Carnival season and I do not drive, at all. Usually we have a designated driver in the crew who is my source of transport. On Saturday said driver also wanted to party so we decided to try Drunk Drivers when the opportunity presented itself. Now, a taxi service for Carnival is not new, there are several other agencies who offer transport to and from a fete. What is new about Drunk Drivers however is the ease of booking and confirming your transport services, I am a huge supporter of all online activities that make my life easier. To that end Drunk Drivers offers a simple Google Quick Quote form, fill in all the required information , an email is then sent for you to confirm , your drivers’s information is sent subsequently. Very easy, very simple they just need to start working on an iPhone app now.
As for the actual service, my driver was prompt (she got there before scheduled pick up and offered to wait as she was early) , very personable as we chatted with her both going and coming and we also had the convenience of stashing house keys and extra accessories that were getting in the way of feteing in the car. I also liked that we could scheduled a NOT BEFORE pick up time which was adjusted when we realized we wanted to extend the feteing time, all that was needed was a text within a reasonable time frame to confirm a later pick up. The vehicle itself was clean, new and perfectly comfortable for just myself and my friend .
Overall I left feeling as if it was a friend that picked us up and dropped us to the fete and not that it was an impersonal taxi service, which had a lot to do with the driver who was pretty cool.
In full disclosure I would like to say that I have met and know of the Founder of Drunk Drivers prior to the start of this business venture, it was this relationship to an extent that allowed me to feel comfortable in trusting that the drivers selected would be indeed putting my safety first.
