GENERAL GUIDELINES: Our goal is to meet every passenger and group promptly and efficiently. Clients and passengers can usually obtain the name and cell phone number of their chauffeur or bus captain by calling our office within 24 hours of the pickup. We request all clients provide a cell phone number for the lead passenger as well as an emergency backup number. We will automatically meet our passengers with a name-board sign at airports, hotels and other large venues. Vehicles for larger groups will always have a name-board in the window on the passenger side. The sign will have the passenger’s first initial & last name or the group name. Separate pickup instructions may be substituted for any trip, but may incur additional charges.
√ DEFAULT OPTION: If no other instructions are given, we will be waiting in front of the building, inside the vehicle. If the passenger has not appeared at the appointed time, we will call the passenger or client phone listed in the reservation. If there is no answer we will leave a message. We will wait 3 more minutes and call each of our contact numbers. If we have not yet heard from the passenger or client, we will call each of our contact numbers every 5 minutes until 30 minutes after the appointed pickup time. If we have not been able to contact the passenger after 30 minutes, we will assume the passenger is not coming and any “NO SHOW” charges will apply.
°OPTION TWO – NO CALLS: We will be waiting in front of the building, inside the vehicle. If we have had no contact by the passenger after 30 minutes from the appointed pickup time, we will assume the passenger is not coming and any “NO SHOW” charges will apply.
°OPTION THREE - AUTHORIZED WAIT – ONE CALL: We will be waiting in front of the building, inside the vehicle. If we have not heard from the passenger or client by 2 hours after the appointed time, we will call each of the contact numbers starting with the client and leave a message. After 4 hours, we will call each of the contact numbers again, starting with the client. If we have not been able to make contact, we will assume the passenger is not coming and any “NO SHOW” charges will apply.
▪Limousines, Minibuses or Buses
If no other instructions are given, we will park as close to the entrance door as safely possible, exit the vehicle and announce our arrival at the door or reception area. In many locations, we cannot leave the vehicle. If that is the case and if the passenger has not appeared at the appointed time, we will call the passenger or client phone number listed in the reservation. If there is no answer we will leave a message. We will wait 3 more minutes and call each of our contact numbers. If we have not yet heard from the passenger or client, we will call each of our contact numbers every 10 minutes until 1 hour after the appointed time. If we have not been able to contact the passenger after 1 hour we will assume the passenger is not coming and any “NO SHOW” charges will apply.
● Celebrity & Public Figure Special Arrival Procedures:
When meeting a celebrity or well-known, high-profile public figure, a computer printed name-board sign will be used unless the chauffeur and passenger know each other. Alternative wording for the sign (A/K/A or Last Name Only) may be provided by the client.
An additional Meet & Greet ($25 per hour/$50 minimum) can also be arranged which might include a greeter permitted past security to meet the passenger or an additional person meeting the passenger to assist with bags or to walk the passenger to the waiting vehicle and chauffeur. In reverse, a separate greeter for outbound passengers might be able to pre-issue a boarding pass and luggage tags if furnished with enough ticketing information to access these through the airlines.
