Castle Cars wins QSi Award in the UK’s only national awards for the private hire, taxi and chauffeur sector
Tonbridge-based company takes Bronze in the Private Hire Operator (1-80 cars) category
Tenth QSi Award for Castle Cars since 2014
A night to remember for Britain’s chauffeur and private hire industry
Tonbridge-based Castle Cars has won the Bronze in the Private Hire Operator (1-80 cars) category of the prestigious Professional Driver QSi Awards. It’s the tenth time Caste Cars has made the final three in a QSi Category since 2014, including Gold in 2021, making it one of the most successful private hire operators.
Professional Driver Editor Mark Bursa said: “Castle Cars has consistently made the top three in this category over the years, which speaks volumes for the high-quality local service it provides. Since the pandemic, the company has taken on a renewed sense of purpose, with a great recruitment policy and a focus on keeping the company in the five-star category in any reviews.”
Professional Driver magazine’s QSi Awards ceremony was a night to remember for the cream of Britain’s chauffeur and private hire operators. The awards, open to every chauffeur and private hire company in the UK, are designed to recognise operators and individuals that demonstrate excellent standards of Quality, Service and Innovation.
Gold, Silver and Bronze awards were presented in 11 categories at a thrilling event, held at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in Brighton.
The 11 categories mean there’s something for every size and type of operator, from one-man bands to large fleets. Categories also reward innovations in marketing, environmental performance and local community activities, while a special award – Professional Driver of the Year – singles out a chauffeur or private hire driver who is judged to be the best in the UK.
Mark Bursa said: “The private hire, taxi and chauffeur industry makes an enormous contribution to keeping Britain moving. This year’s Professional Driver QSi Awards recognise those amazing efforts and bring the industry together for a much-needed night of celebration.”
Mark Bursa continued: “This year the QSi Awards celebrated their 10th Birthday. Since 2013 we have awarded more than 300 QSi Awards, and this year we presented our 100th Gold Award. The quality and number of the entries grows every year, and this year it was an especially tough job to pick our winners. Only very good operators made the short list, so we can be sure our Gold, Silver and Bronze winners are among the very best in Britain.”
Professional Driver magazine is the national publication for the UK’s chauffeur, private hire and taxi industry. The QSi Awards were launched in 2013 as the first and only national awards for the industry. For more details, visit www.prodrivermags.com
