What golf transport option should I choose on my Scotland Golf Tour?
From experience we find that around 50% of our clients select our Escorted Chauffeur option and the remaining 50% opt for Vehicle Rental.
What is the Escorted Chauffeur Option?
If you decide on the Chauffeured Transport option, this ensures that everyone can relax, have a few drinks and enjoy the sights as they travel, leaving all the driving to someone else.
Your driver will also be your tour guide for the duration of your stay. Depending on your itinerary, sometimes our chauffeured option is no more expensive and sometimes more cost effective than Vehicle Rental. On some tours with greater travelling times it does work out slightly more expensive.
What are the benefits of the chauffeured option?
The obvious benefit is that no-one in the golf party has to drive meaning that the entire group can relax and enjoy their vacation. Your driver will also be your tour guide for the duration of your Scotland golf trip and will be experienced, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. In addition, he will assist you with all your day to day golf and off course arrangements.
Meridian Golf Tours have partnerships with transport operators who can provide Deluxe coaches from 8 - 34 seats.
What are the typical features of chauffeuerd coaches?
- Spacious and comfortable seating
- On Board Television and DVD Player
- Well Stocked Fridge
- Tables for cards or other activities
What are my vehicle rental options?
The most popular vehicle rental options are the Mercedes Vito or Viano, although our vehicle rental partners have a wide selection of other options available to you ranging from budget options to luxury vehicles.
What rental vehicle would suit us best?
In order to accommodate golf clubs, luggage and ensure the comfort of passengers, we recommend that you use a 4-seated vehicle for 2 golfers and an 8-seated vehicle for 4 golfers.
Do you provide a Meet and Greet Service?
Yes we do. Whatever travel option you select, you will be met on your arrival by a Meridian Golf Tours representative who will either take you to your coach or assist you with your vehicle rental process. You will then be escorted to your accommodation to ensure that your Scotland Golf Trip gets of to a smooth start.
