Glautier Auto Detailing – professionalism and passion combined to give you an excellent result

glautier auto detailing

In my experience the best service offered by businesses comes from those that are owner managed and where the owner has a passion for his industry too.  Glautier Auto Detailing is a classic example of this type of company.

Marc Glautier is not just the founder and Managing Director of Glautier Auto Detailing but he also describes himself as a hands-on Detailer, Detailing Trainer and car care product supplier.

“With a lifelong passion for the automotive industry, it’s no surprise that cars have played a major role in my life,” says Marc.

Marc spent much of his youth attending automotive events and as an adult he cut his teeth working for a number of multinational companies that specialized in polishing for the automotive and aeronautical industries.

As further testament to Marc’s credentials he is also the outgoing Chairman of the South African chapter of the International Detailing Association (IDA) and from the 1st January 2024 he will be sitting on the board of directors of the IDA in the US.

The start of Glautier Auto Detailing

In 2018 Marc launched Glautier Auto Detailing and the fact that his business survived the Covid shutdowns is testament to this being a solid and highly professional organisation.

The term “Detailing” defines that perfection, attention to detail and quality may be expected from any service offered.

Marc says, “Our experienced team is dedicated to providing honest, professional, and high-quality services to keep your vehicle in top condition. We use only the best local and imported products and the correct techniques to ensure that your vehicle is thoroughly cleaned and protected.”

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
