How to choose your private driver in Lyon?

Choosing an experimented private driver

Opting for an experimented private driver in Lyon is essential for security reasons: the driver must be able to handle difficult road conditions. The roads around the mountains are narrow, winding and very slippery. Make sure that your private driver is used to driving on such roads.

Choosing a private driver who has the right equipment

Choosing an experimented private driver is necessary but it is not enough. Your private driver must be well-equipped. The car must be able to handle snow covered roads. Therefore, a good private driver must make sure to drive with their snow tires. Plus, they should always have snow chains in their trunk.
