If you hired a NYC Car Service Limo from Automotive Luxury and need information regarding waiting times and extra stops please read the information below.
If you are being picked up at your office or a residence rest assured that your chauffeur is on location at least 15 minutes prior to your designated pickup time.
Also, if you requested to be picked up at any other location, sporting event, theater, rock concert, Broadway show, airport, etc… your chauffeur should also be on location at least 15 minutes prior to your requested pick up time.
There is also a 15 minute grace period should you be running late (for example, if your meeting is running a few minutes over, no worries) your chauffeur will be there 15 minutes early and there is no additional charge for up to 15 minutes waiting.
After the 15 minute waiting time grace period, waiting time is only applied in ¼ hour (15 minute) increments at the hourly rate.
At every airport Automotive Luxury NYC car Service monitors all flights for the most up to date arrival time and allows a designated amount of waiting time prior to any overtime charges.
- Allowance of 30 minutes at LGA (Laguardia Airport in New York).
- Allowance of 45 minutes at JFK (John F. Kenedy Airport in NY).
- Allowance of 45 minutes at Newark International Airport in NJ.
- Allowance of 1 hour for all International Flights.
- Allow for extra stops directly along the route are subject to a 1/4 hour charge, off-route stops are subject to increments of 1/2 hour and plus charges.
If you happen to be trying to decide what NYC Car Service or Limo Company in New York to hire, be sure you specifically ask about their waiting time policy.
We know of several competitors that will charge you a full 1 hour wait time if they have to wait 16 minutes for you (1 minute over their allowed 15 minute wait time).
“Automotive Luxury only charges in 15 minute increments while most other car service providers charge a full hour for waiting times. Automotive allows you the luxury of a 15 minute wait time and only charges for 15 minutes if the wait time is a half hour.”
