Are there any hidden charges?  No. We will inform you of all charges prior to your acceptance of the journey. However, if you require any additional needs or financial outlays by the chauffeur, i.e., tolls, gas (clients’ personal vehicle) or anything of that nature then those outlays would require a fifteen (15) percent service fee.

When does billable time start?  Billable time starts after our driver arrives at the address you designated for pick up and completes a 10-minute inspection of your vehicle. Our drivers will arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your requested pick up time to complete this required inspection, and you will not be billed for those minutes.
