About us

Established in 2003, Chariot Limousines has become one of the most well-known and respected companies in the Cape Town limousine industry. Group CEO Gareth Cotten started the business, with just one vehicle, while studying at the University of Cape Town, with the aim of putting his business skills to work in providing luxury transport to discerning clients in the area. The company was the forerunner of The Chariot Group (see our homepage www.chariotgroup.co.za), and has gone from strength to strength since inception.

Over time, valuable relationships were built with other local and national transport companies – as well as many upmarket hotels & guesthouses, restaurants and entertainment venues – forming the foundation for expansion in later years. In early 2007, a second, larger, limousine was purchased, allowing us to cater to the demand of slightly larger groups. This proved a great investment, as even more people were now able to enjoy the superior level of service we offer. At the same time, we went into partnership for a third limousine, expanding our capacity even further. Later in 2007, an Audi stationwagon was purchased, to cater to the requests of a number of clients for a smaller, less conspicuous vehicle for individuals and small groups wanting to experience the Chariot service, but not wanting to make as big a splash as in a stretch limousine.

In 2008, a further investment was made in a brand-new Toyota Quantum van. This full luxury 13-seater allows us to offer a superior experience to larger groups than the limousines can accommodate, and also extends the distance from Cape Town that we can transport clients. It also forms the backbone of our ultra-lux commuting service “The Lifestyle Shuttle” (please click on the link on our group homepage for more info).

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a superior, luxury transport and entertainment experience to our clients, based on the principles of quality service, integrity, reliability, and discretion. We pride ourselves on our flexibility, and will do our utmost to accommodate any request. We aim to become the preferred choice for luxury transport in Cape Town and, in the near future, the whole of South Africa, and to empower as many others as we can along the way…
