"You are proving to be a safe investment, a rare thing in these days of falsehood. My Oriental Friend will need an escort while he takes my latest acquisition to be authenticated. I want you to follow him and make sure both he and my package get to Pike Creek unharmed."
Donald Love

Escort Service is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by media tycoon and businessman Donald Love from the Love Media building in the Bedford Point district of Staunton Island, Liberty City.


Claude goes to Donald's penthouse, looking for more work. Donald wants Claude to protect the Old Oriental Gentleman in a Securicar and make sure he's safely arriving in Pike Creek, Shoreside Vale, for Donald's package needs authentication. Claude later gets out the building and gets in a car, following the Securicar transporting the oriental gentleman. On the way, members of Colombian Cartel start to give chase in Cartel Cruisers, trying to ram the vehicle. Claude, however, manages to hold off the Cartel members. Eventually, the Old Oriental Gentleman, with the help of Claude, arrives at the destination safely.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Hold off the Colombian gang


  • An interesting twist to this mission is that, alternatively to getting a car and following the Securicar, the player can also stand in the vehicle during the mission. Despite a message appearing and informing Claude needs a car for the job, the player can jump into the Securicar's roof. This will start the vehicle path to Pike Creek, leaving the player on top of it, and making the mission a bit easier.
    • However the player needs to be aware of the crashes, if the Colombians crash their Cruisers into the Securicar, Claude can fall out and it will be a little difficult to mount again, forcing the player to use a vehicle.
    • Also, there seems to be a particular point in the tunnel, just before the exit towards the airport, where the player will always fall off due to the reduced height of the tunnel, when that happens don't waste time and get on a car! Colombian gangsters positioned just outside the exit of the tunnel will shoot at the Securicar, so be hasty!
    • In any case, this method makes 80% of this mission easier. Just try jumping on top of the Securicar's roof, get a good firing position, and enjoy the ride!
  • Only for this mission, an M16 assault rifle appears as a pick-up near the Securicar among the shrubs, it can help the player in the fight against the Colombians. It is most helpful if one decides to do the approach mentioned above, with the player aiming with the M-16 while on top of the Securicar. You may doubt your ability to correctly aim while the Securicar is moving, luckily, the M-16 is so letal that just one shot on target will mean a OHKO.


The reward for completing this mission is $40,000 and the mission Decoy is unlocked.
