We are not the kind of company that likes to charge for late cancellations. We only have the cancellation policy in place for the respect of the drivers. When a reservation is made, we no longer take any more trips for that vehicle in that specific time slot. If a last minute cancellation occurs, then the company and the driver have lost that business and any other potential business.

  1. Our clients appreciate the convenience of prepaid gratuity and not having to worry about having cash on hand.
