Cadbury Cars, Congresbury
Cadbury Cars is a Chauffeur and Taxi company offering executive style travel to both corporate and private clients, both locally and across the UK. Today, the business has grown into a thriving enterprise trusted by a loyal client base, including the odd celebrity, but it's a far cry from where they began.
First established in 2008 by Katie Shaw, a former Legal Secretary, the company operated just two cars and offered transport for a single venue only, the well-known Cadbury House Hotel. Following a successful first year, in 2009 Cadbury Cars were appointed as the official on-site transport partner for the hotel and an agreement was put in place to look after guest travel.
This included guest travel to and from UK airports, train stations and ports, as well as to provide a local taxi and chauffeur service in and around the South West - a deal which still continues to this day.
During this time word of Cadbury Cars started to spread and their business outside of the hotel agreement began to thrive - providing a reliable service at a fair cost was always the objective and this has led them to be the preferred choice for hundreds of companies and private individuals.
Over the past few years some famous people have graced the seats of Cadbury Cars; Jane Seymour, Theo Pathitis, Suzy Perry, Chris Eubank and the cast of The Cafè to name but a few!
In the main the day-to-day business is transfers from hotels to airports, train stations, ports and local travel, for both hotel guests and private bookings. That said, recent years have seen tremendous growth in their wedding car service, their sporting event travel service and special occasions travel such as for celebrations, anniversaries and graduations.
Their corporate offering in particular is an area seeing significant growth - as well as transfers to airports and train stations, travel to meetings is becoming a popular choice.
One of the best things about being based in North Somerset is that geographically we are placed to service a large area with fantastic connections to major roads, routes and travel destinations in the South West and into Wales.
Their fleet now consists of six cars which offer a balance between style and affordability – they can accommodate up to eight people with luggage and are fully licensed to work in any area of the UK. All of their cars come with free Wi-Fi, a complimentary newspaper and an experienced driver.
Cadbury Cars are also the only car company licensed to drive onto Weston-super-Mare pier to pick up and drop off guests that attend any events held there.
