FAQ About Reserving a Car Service in New York, Brooklyn, New York

With the holidays just around the corner, you’re probably going to travel. Whether you’re currently in New York and planning a night on the town or flying in from out of state, reserving a car service makes everything easier.

If you haven’t reserved a car service before, however, you probably have a few questions.

What You Need to Know About Car Service Reservations in New York

How far in advance should I reserve a car service?

car serviceIt’s not uncommon to find a car service that offers same-day accommodations, but in general, call 24 hours in advance at the very least. A few days are better, and a week is ideal. Overall, the earlier, the better, especially if it’s a big event or you’ll be with a large group of people.

Are drivers expected to know all of the streets?

The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission, which oversees the licensing and regulations of taxi cabs, for-hire vehicles, and other related services, requires drivers to be well-versed with Brooklyn and familiar with the significant areas throughout the boroughs. However, they can use GPS to help them locate specific locations.

What’s the general cancellation policy?

This will differ depending on the company. Some companies allow free cancellations—usually if they’re done at least a day before a scheduled ride—while others have a nonrefundable down payment. When in doubt, call ahead and ask them about their policy.
