Collette brings the luxe to the front door

Hannah Edensor

Collette has cranked up the luxury lever and starting its service as soon as guests open their door.

The company last night announced its new complimentary chauffeur driven airport service, which they believe will go that extra mile for holidaymakers.

Any clients now booked with Collette can take advantage of the personalised ‘stress free’ service, regardless of what they are spending or whether they have toured with Collette previously.

It applies to anyone and any booking, and is available to and from all the major airports across Australia.

And when your clients return relaxed from their holidays, Collette will arrange for them to travel home in comfort too.

“From start to finish our goal is to offer the best holiday experience, with exceptional quality and value,” Collette’s Australia business manager Alison Mead said.

“The chauffeur drive service is another value-add showcasing the inclusive nature of our touring product.”

The service is valid for any new bookings from September 10 2015 through until October 31, and applies for those within a 40km driving distance of airport gateways in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Cairns, Hobart, Perth, Darwin, Canberra.

Additional kilometres can be purchased at a fee for 41kms to 70kms driving distance.

Bookings from November 1 2015 onwards will receive complimentary chauffeur drive service with any Collette booking incorporating air and land excluding Australia.
