Added service offering to non-members at Good Fellas

BY GRAEME LUND - OCTOBER 20, 2016

Traffic laws and their implementation and prosecution are becoming more prevalent and, with some of the larger municipalities having new and more stringent management, drivers caught under the influence can expect little or no leniency.

Horror stories abound of those drunken drivers put in dirty and violent prison cells overnight and, in some cases, for an entire weekend, as they await the opportunity to stand before the local magistrate.

There are few worse ways to end a night of festivities at a gala dinner, a wedding or a corporate event than being pulled over, arrested and thrown in jail simply because you forgot to count the number of drinks you enjoyed.

Alison Brussow, Head of Marketing and PR at Good Fellas says, “We are the country’s oldest established take me home service and have been assisting responsible party goers for many years.  In essence we provide our members with a highly competent driver who will collect the member, in their own car, and take them home safely.”

Over the years Good Fellas have added a variety of other services including a function service, a chauffeur service, a chartered bus, a point to point charter and 6 hour driver hire service.

Traditionally, these services where only offered to Good Fellas members but they are now offered to non-members too, but with members receiving priority service.

The six-hour chauffeur drive service is ideal for people wanting to enjoy a tour of the wine lands, go on a craft beer pub crawl or have a night of festivities, be it a bachelor or bachelorette service.  The chauffeur will drive the vehicle of your choice, at any time of the day or night, to any number of destinations over a six hour period.

The cost of this service is R1000 and if you wish to add more time you can add another R120 per hour. Good Fellas members, depending on their membership, receive a discount on this rate.

If your own vehicle is too small to accommodate a large group then Good Fellas offer a chartered bus service in Durban, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria and Johannesburg. 

The bus is a sixteen seater and costs R3000 including the driver for the six hour period and up to 250 km travelled. Each additional hour costs R250 and each additional kilometre costs R3.00.

“Our drivers are well vetted and responsible and often get to know our members quite well.  They ensure that our members receive the best possible service and that they and their car end their fun filled evening safely and at the destination of their choice,” adds Alison.
