There is a 2-hour minimum in Manhattan and you'll need to check minimums in other cities. If you need the vehicle for an extended length of time, you can let us know, and we will accommodate your requests.
*A 3-hour minimum will be applied to hourly jobs in the 4 boroughs outside Manhattan.

For all Manhattan pickups we require a 30-minute notice. For the other 4 boroughs one hour is required for cancellations. For all other trips, you will get the cancellation notice after you place the order, with your e-mail confirmation of your order.
(1) Do you provide meet and greet service at Airports?
Yes. When you book your ride, you can request a Meet and Greet service (Inside pickup) and your chauffeur will wait for you at baggage (domestic flights) or outside Customs (International flights) with a sign with your name on it.
(2) Is there an additional cost for Meet and Greet service?
Yes. We charge $10-$25 for this service, plus any airport parking fee the driver accrues when he leaves his vehicle to meet the passenger.
(3) Do you provide free wait time for airport pick ups?
Yes. The passenger gets a free waiting period of 30 minutes for Domestic flight arrivals and 45 minutes for International flight arrivals. We check the arrival time with your airline, and update your pickup time to reflect the new arrival time. Your free wait starts from that time.
If it takes you longer to retrieve your luggage, or if you come out later than the allotted free wait, you will be charged for waiting time.
(4) Do you check flights for arrival times?

(1) Do you supply car seats for kids?
Yes. The request for a child seat should be made at the time of booking. There is a charge for this service, as the driver’s vehicle is not always equipped with child seats and this request requires additional travel time for the driver.

As per NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission rules, it is not mandatory. You can request a car seat if you feel more secure. Local laws in the location of the trip apply and compliance is the responsibility of the client.
(3) Do passengers have to wear seat belts?
NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission rules exempt the drivers and passengers in Taxis and Black Cars from having to wear seat belts. Please feel free to use one if you wish. Outside of NYC local laws apply. A seatbelt is always recommended for a passenger’s safety.
(4) Do you allow smoking in the vehicles?
No. Smoking in vehicles is not tolerated. Smoking is prohibited for the driver and the passengers by the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission. All vehicles must be clean and smoke free at all times. Your chauffeur will be subject to a summons and fine if he/she lets you smoke in the vehicle.
(5) Do you allow luggage to be stored inside the passenger area of the vehicle?
No. All baggage must fit in the trunk. If you want to keep baggage in the vehicle after the chauffeur drops you off, you will be charged the hourly rate applicable for that vehicle, the vehicle cannot be used for other passengers when your belongings are present.
(6) Do you allow pets in the vehicles?
Yes. A small pet can travel in a sedan as long as it's in a kennel or a carrier. Otherwise an SUV should be ordered. For all large pets, an SUV must be ordered. The only exception applies to Service Dogs. Inform us at the time of booking if a vehicle allowing pets is required.
