Rental Terms & Conditions
The following Terms and Conditions apply to all vehicles operated by VIP Limousine LLC, including VIP-tier vehicles and Emerald-tier vehicles. A deposit on or payment for a vehicle will constitute your agreement with these terms.
COVID-19 Procedures: All chauffeurs will be masked while clients are entering, exiting, and onboard. All guests are requested to have a mask in place when entering and exiting the vehicle. If transportation is provided in a small vehicle (Sedan/SUV) where the client and chauffeur are within six feet of each other, it would be appreciated if the clients wears a mask through the duration of the services.
Deposit, Change and Cancellation Policy: Sedans/SUVs: Cancellations or pick-up time adjustments less than two hours plus drive time prior to the scheduled pick-up time will result in a charge equal to the full amount of the booking. Stretch Limos, Sprinters and Buses: reservations require a 50% deposit at time of booking, with full payment due 90-days prior to the date of the reservation; all deposits and payments are non-refundable. VIP will not be held liable for passenger flights or trains that are missed, canceled, diverted, or delayed, or any other incident which results in failure to comply with the cancellation policy.
Driver Gratuity: Based on the date of booking, in some cases, gratuity has not been added to this trip and is expected to be paid in-full to the chauffeur directly at the close of the trip. In other cases, a base hourly gratuity by vehicle has been added as part of the “all-inclusive services” for your convenience. If you have questions on which is applicable, please contact the office team. If a base gratuity has been added, it applies to all time the chauffeur spends on the trip, including pre-trip arrival time and post-trip drive time. The minimum base gratuity rates are: Sedan/SUVs, $14.87/hr; Stretches/Sprinters up to 13 passengers, $17.87/hr; Stretch Hummer and vehicles up to 20 passengers, $20.87/hr; all vehicles larger than 20 passengers (excluding Prevost), $23.87/hr; Prevost, $32.87/hr. The payment of this recommended tip is subject to your complete discretion and may be increased, decreased or eliminated entirely. Any gratuity received will be remitted in full to the chauffeur.
Additional Time: Overtime charges will apply when a driver is asked to make any stops or itinerary changes that either void a point-to-point transfer or extend the agreed upon drop-off time. Each client will receive a 15-minute grace period. All-inclusive “additional time” pay, covering all fees and services, will apply after the grace period, billed to the nearest quarter-hour.
Alcohol Policy: Client and it’s parties agree to obey all laws concerning alcohol consumption and assumes all responsibility for their passengers’ use of alcohol (including possession and consumption by minors), taking beverages off premises and overconsumption.
