Like for hotel rooms and for many other travel services, we need a valid credit card as a guarantee to hold your reservation also if the payment will be by cash.
- Do I have to tip drivers?
In most countries tipping drivers is not customary, but certainly welcome if you are satisfied about the service provided and would like to tip your driver.
- May I get a receipt or an invoice to document my expenses?
Should you need a payment receipt or invoice, please request it at the same time the payment is made. Issuing an invoice after the payment is made, especially if a receipt has been already issued, may be difficult in some country.
Before you travel
- What luggage entitlement will I have?
Please do not carry luggage in excess of what specified in the reservation module, otherwise the supplied vehicle may be too small (in most countries it's not allowed to carry luggage over the seats). If the luggage requirements changes after the reservation has been confirmed, please request to modify your booking.

We will send this information together with final booking details. Generally, for airports your driver will wait at arrival hall holding a board with your name. For hotel or private property, your driver will wait at the address supplied on your reservation module.

In the very rare event that you can't locate your driver, please do not leave the location where you are waiting and call promptly the phone number supplied on the reservation confirmation email.
- What will happens if my flight is delayed?
Our prices include flight tracking service, meaning that your driver will monitor inbound flight and will pick-up you at actual landing time. There is no need to communicate flight delay to your driver, since the expected arrival time is already displayed on information monitors (this is the reason for which it's very important to supply correct flight details on the reservation module).
