The first day at a new school is nerve-wrecking for most people, and one company wants to make that experience a little easier.

Uni Baggage is letting students rent chauffeur-driven luxury cars, which will drop students off for their first day of college.

The company originally set out to help deliver student's luggage to their halls for the first day of college, but a number of clients started asking about delivering themselves to the school as well, according to The Sunday Times

Uni Baggage decided to expand its business by purchasing a fleet of luxury vehicles for a new service it calls "Very Important Freshers."

Luxury vehicles available to students includes: an Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce Phantom, the $1.15 million, 903 hp McLaren P1, and a Ferrari 430.

The service costs around $24,000 to $30,000 depending how long the drive is.

The students who can afford the service are sure to become the most loathed kids in school. The UK-based company said its clients are normally foreign and use the service not to make an entrance but because it is "what they are used to."

"The students tend to be from America, China and the Middle East," said Paul Stewart, co-founder of Uni Baggage, according to The Sunday Times. "Some want to make a big entrance but for most, it's just what they're used to."

Uni Baggage expects to deliver 20 to 30 students to their first day of college by using its transportation service, compared to the 10,000 items of luggage the company is used to sending.

If the luxury car isn't good enough, students can also arrive in a helicopter for $33,000 or private jet for $41,000.
