Private Chauffeur in Paris – Moh Zraidi

Share Button

What brought you to Paris?
This is my second time in Paris. I originally arrived from my hometown Taza, Morocco in 1984 with my brother. A decade later I met my wife Patricia, an American in Paris and we moved to Connecticut, USA in 1994. It was in the year 1999 that we decided to come back to Paris with our two sons, we’ve since settled here.

When did you become a chauffeur?
When I turned 45 years old I decided I wanted to do something for myself. I had been working as a driver for a tour company and learnt the ropes but wanted the independence of working for myself. In 2013 I began studying Paris’ history and monuments. I obtained my VTC (Voiture de Transport avec Chauffeur) licence and began driving under my own company Z-Chauffeur with a newly purchased Peugeot 508.

Have you noticed any trends over the last year?
Absolutely, the tourist demand has dropped around 30% over the past 12 months which is in line with the tourism trend in Paris as a whole. What I see is the majority of my clients have become locals who need airport and restaurant drop-offs.

What services do you offer?
I have two types of clients, with two different types of requirements. The first are tourists who predominantly come from the US or Middle East, and who need a private chauffeur during their stay. Most want a dedicated driver to take them shopping, visiting and/or to other cities. The other type of clients are the locals who need one way journeys such as airport pickups or drop-offs.

What do you like the most about your work?
As my wife says, this is the perfect job for me. I love people and this job allows me to meet different people every
day. It also gives me independence and this is the true happiness I get from what I do.

What car are you driving?
It’s a fourth generation Mercedes 220 (2014) which allows me to comfortably drive four passengers.

If someone is looking for a driver, why should they call you?
I’m a friendly driver who speaks 4 languages (English,French, Arabic, Spanish) and I know this city. I know its history, culture and politics. Just as important, I know my clients’ culture, whether they are American, French or Arabic – I’ve lived in all three cultures.

Grumpy in Paris – 5 ways to beat the upcoming ‘winter blues’

Living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world has its many perks. A wealth of galleries, museums, delicious food, beautiful walks and a melodic language under no matter what context. But all pros have their cons and one of the lesser points of Paris these days is the ‘rentrée effect’ where people have come back from their holidays, said goodbye to summer and are now waiting for winter (even though we’ve only just hit autumn). Here are some ways to beat those winter blues and enjoy the colder season ahead … […]
