Where can I go with a DDOB driver?

When you reserve a personal driver with DDOB, your reservation is based on time, not destination. That means your personal driver will take you wherever you need to go, picking up your friends and making as many stops as you want to make for as long as you have reserved the service. The driver will also wait for you as needed. As long as we can get there and back within the period of your reservation, we can take you there!

How does DDOB compare to UBER or a taxi service?

While both DDOB drivers and taxi drivers take customers where they want to go in exchange for a fee, DDOB differs from a traditional taxi service in that our drivers operate our customers’ automobiles for them. We do not operate taxis that are hailed on streets; instead, our private hire drivers are pre-booked using our website, telephone number, or smartphone app.

Does DDOB provide limousine services?

DDOB provides personal drivers to drive you in your car. Many of our drivers hold commercial drivers licenses and have been or are currently professional limousine drivers as well.

Can I use DDOB for reasons other than a designated driver?

Yes. DDOB has many clients who use our services weekly for getting to and from medical appointments, traveling for business, etc. While we developed DDOB with designated driving services in mind, we are offering a personal driving service that can be used in any way you might need a personal chauffeur. When you reserve a personal driver, you can have your driver take you anywhere you need to go.
