A “NO SHOW” fee equal to the cost of the trip, plus the appropriate vehicle gratuity, applicable waiting time, and all other out of pocket costs will be charged to the customer.
Cancellations are accepted by phone only. Cancellations of any vehicle type less than four (4) hours prior to scheduled pick-up, will result in a cancellation fee equal to the full price of the trip fare plus any applicable fees incurred, parking, wait time, etc. Prom, Wedding, and other “SPECIAL EVENTS” car service is subject to an events cancellation policy.

One Transfer (CLT AIRPORT) And Multiple Flights
We see this from time to time. A client wishes to book a vehicle to pick up from the CLT Airport, but they are on one flight and they are meeting a party that is coming in on another flight. In this case we have an automatic 2 Hour Minimum for the vehicle. This is simply due to the nature of how airlines and flights operate in 2021. There are so many delays and changes in flight schedules that one may land early and the second may land late. Our vehicle and driver are committed to the wait time in this case and as such the we have a 2 Hour Hour Minimum.
Vehicles cannot be loaded beyond seating capacity. Children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by at least one adult.
