**`**Limo Pricing Guide***`*
1.Focus on value: find the best service at the best price
Not all ground transportation services are equal, which is why price should not be the only factor in your search and vehicle selection. Much like making hotel reservations, the difference in price is often directly related to the level of service and experience you will receive. When booking a limo, it is often helpful to have a budget in mind along with an idea of the type of experience you are looking for from your limo service provider.
Understand the Whole Price
Always make sure you are checking prices and comparing apples-to-apples between car services. Each limousine company will generally have their own unique pricing policies. Many companies offer services priced by the hour - but may also offer a flat rate for rides to and from the airport. Pay attention to additional add on fees like fuel surcharges or other service fees not included in the base price.
Tax and Tip Is Always Included in the Price you Pay
Prices listed on Limos.com always include the base rate, taxes and gratuity for the driver. It is customary to tip drivers 15-20% of the base price so keep that savings in mind when evaluating the price.
Hourly and Flat Rate Pricing
You may be quoted an hourly or a flat rate. A rate that is calculated ‘hourly’ is garage to garage pricing and is based on the estimated drive time between destinations. A ride priced hourly will be billed by the actual amount of time it takes your driver to complete the ride, garage to garage. A flat rate is not dependent on drive time and is simply a flat fee for transport between destinations.
The price quoted for your ride is based on drop off and pick up location provided at time of search. Please note that additional fees and charges may apply to your ride. If you incur additional fees, your credit card will be charged for the actual ride amount (ride estimate + extras – see below for examples) after the ride is complete. The following is a list of additional fees you may incur.
Pricing is based on pick up and drop off locations provided. Please note that tolls are not included in the pricing and you will be billed for any incurred toll charges after the ride is complete. Click here for more details on tolls by major regions.
Any requested stop during the ride will be billed at the stop rate for the ride selected plus other fees listed in your ride quote. A stop is typically calculated based on 10 minutes of wait time. If your stop is longer, or if your stop deviates from the original itinerary, your ride may be converted to hourly pricing.
Wait time will be billed at the rate listed in your ride quote, plus other fees listed in your ride quote. Wait time is incurred after 15 minutes from the scheduled pick up time, and is typically billed in 15-minute increments.
Parking will be billed at the actual cost to the operator plus other fees listed in your ride quote. Parking fees are typically incurred on airport pickups where the airport does not have a waiting lot, or when an inside pick up is requested; or for any requested stop where free parking is not available.
Additional hours outside the original quoted ride duration shall be billed at the extra hours rate for the ride selected, plus other fees listed in your ride quote. Extra hours are typically associated with hourly services, and are incurred from the originally scheduled end time. If you do not start your ride on time, but the driver arrives at the scheduled time, and you retain the vehicle for the original number of hours requested, extra hours will be incurred.
Additional charges will apply for each car seat requested plus other fees listed in your ride quote. You can determine the cost and availability of car seats by calling Customer Care at 855-871-8561.
Meet & Greet Charges
Meet & Greet inside the terminal is available for the Meet & Greet for the ride selected plus other fees listed in your ride quote. When selecting Meet & Greet, you may be liable for parking charges in addition to the Meet & Greet fee.
Extra mileage is common on rides outside of the US where the base ride price includes a set number of miles or kilometers. Additional miles/kilometers are charged for mileage beyond the base rate. Rates may vary by country and operator, and are displayed on the Reservation Request page, in the booking path.
Fuel surcharges may be applied when the use of the vehicle is inconsistent with typical limo service. Examples include but are not limited to round robin use of an hourly vehicle, Hollywood tours of the homes of stars, mountain driving, etc. Fuel surcharges will typically be communicated prior to the ride, however, deviations from the specified itinerary or special requests made while in the vehicle may trigger a fuel surcharge.
Cleaning and Repair Fees
Cleaning fees may be charged when activity inside the vehicle leaves a residual odor or stains the carpet/upholstery, including but not limited to smoking, spilled food or drinks, foods with a heavy odor and vomit. Repair fees may be charges when physical damage is caused to the vehicle including but not limited to rips and tears to the carpet, upholstery, or other soft materials; damage to moldings, door panels or other components.
