Currently, we offer a chauffeur service in which you are driven in the comfort of your own vehicle.
For our last vacation we booked a driver using Kater to take us to the airport. Our driver was amazing; he helped us load our luggage in our SUV, he dropped us off right in front of our gate and unloaded our luggage. It was so easy and convenient. We didn't have to waste our time and money on parking. I would recommend Kater to all my friends!
I used the service to attend a Canucks game with a couple buddies. The driver dropped us off in front the Rogers Arena. After the game was over he took us to a couple bars before we headed home to the valley. Kater saved me time, money and just an overall great night! Will definitely be using the service again.
Driver's will submit their bid for your trip. You can choose your driver based on cost, star rating, experience, or if you have used them before.
The driver arrives at your scheduled start time. Hand over the keys and relax while you get driven in the comfort of your own vehicle.
You can stay in contact with your driver and know where they are at any time during the trip with our in-app chat and driver tracking.
After the trip is completed, the app completes the payment. You are able to review the invoices for all of your trips at anytime in-app.
Kater provides you with a more convenient, cost-effective and personalized way of traveling.
Your personal chauffeur will pick and drop you off wherever you need to go.

After entering your trip details and searching for a driver, drivers will bid on your trip and provide you with their hourly rate. You have the option to choose your preferred driver based on hourly rate, rating and experience. Rates typically range from $15 to $25 per hour.
If you need to cancel a trip please cancel the trip within the Kater app. There is no cancellation fee if more than 2 hours' notice is provided. If you cancel within 2 hours' of your scheduled pick up time or if you are a no-show, there is a $50 fee to cover the cost of booking the driver's time.
Drivers will request proof of valid vehicle insurance from you. The driver will provide driving services for you only if you maintain adequate automobile liability insurance that protects third parties.
