Emirates Chauffeur: Book Before March 1 for Award and Upgrade Tickets

Emirates Chauffeur-Last Chance to Book for Award and Upgrade Tickets


Emirates Chauffeur is complimentary for Emirates First Class and Business Class passengers, but effective March 1, 2019, Emirates Chauffeur is NOT available for those booked on Classic Rewards award tickets with Skywards miles, or for passengers who upgrade to Emirates Business Class from economy. 

Back in 2015 Emirates eliminated Emirates Chauffeur for partner award tickets, for example those booked with Alaska Mileage Plan.

From the Emirates Chauffeur Terms & Conditions:

“Effective March 1, 2019, new Chauffeur-drive service reservations are not available in conjunction with Skywards Business and First Class Classic Rewards and Economy to Business Class Upgrades.”

No Emirates Chauffeur for Award and Upgrade Tickets Effective March 1 2019

That just leaves today and tomorrow, February 28, 2019 to make complimentary Emirates Chauffeur bookings for future Skywards award tickets or tickets you've used Skywards miles to upgrade from economy to business class.

The wording in the updated Ts & Cs states “new Chauffeur-drive service…” which seems to imply that as long as you've made an Emirates Chauffeur booking before March 1, 2019, you can change it, although I wouldn't count on that being the case. Still, in Dubai, there are so many vehicles that I'd be surprised if it's an issue in Dubai itself.

Do you have any future Emirates Skywards award tickets that you need to book Emirates Chauffeur service for?
