Secaucus Taxi Service: Dealing With Multiple Flights and/or Multiple Destinations

I am very surprised at myself that I have somehow been remiss in writing about multiple flight situations.  Shame, shame, shame.  I have spoken to passengers about this over the phone and somehow thought I had written about it here.  Well no wonder they have been asking!  I have every intention of rectifying this today. 

 

PICT0841Real-time flight tracking of multiple flights

Let's start with what do I mean by "multiple flights".  Here is a scenario:

You are booking a trip to a specific airport yet all your friends/family are flying in from different parts of the country or simply couldn't fit on the same flight.  It is best to provide us with all of the flight information so we can keep an eye on each individual flight for delays, cancellations and early arrivals.  Also, since you wonderful people already know what each other look like (at least I would hope so or else you need more reunions in your future) it will be much easier for you to gather everyone together than our driver would searching for strangers while driving.

As each person lands, we will go by the latest flight information and schedule pick up at that terminal usually.  Yes, I said usually.  Life is change and change always occurs.  For example, if the majority of passengers are at Terminal A and the last person is at Terminal C well it will be your choice on whether we pick up at two terminals or at one.  There is a $5 fee per terminal if we are picking up at multiples.  We will work out what works best for you as every situation is not the same.

Also, when it comes to multiple flights all passengers must be informed of what the bottom line is with transportation, which simply means that we will be going by "last one in".  Some passengers might not want to wait around the airport with other friends/family and opt to arrange additional transportation.  Always discuss travel plans with all involved to minimise the possibility of a FUBAR incident.  

What would we need for multiple flight reservations?

Time:
Location:
Airline:

Passenger Name:

Repeat as needed.  This works great for a single destination.  Multiple destinations with multiple flights can be performed as well as long as we know everything up front.  Well, except for overly personal information.  That's just.....wrong.  You know who you are!

Usually, when it comes to multiple destinations we go by the furthest, then do Stop charges and wait times if any, unless one or two are in opposite directions.  Okay, okay, now I'm the one providing TMI (too much info).  As I said before, we will tailor your trip to you and the situation.  We will be providing you with a list of options that you will be able to choose from.


Passenger Education: Round Trip Discounts

Discounts are only available on same-day round-trip non-local travel.  Passengers will pay the regular fare for the initial trip to their destination, the taxi will wait at the destination at $30/hr and then return the passenger to the pick up location. 

Let's use a trip from a location to JFK to drop off a family member and return home as an example.  Let's say the initial fare to the airport was $70 fare + $20 tolls = $90.  There is a one hour wait at $30 an hour and the taxi returns the passenger to the pick up location.  The total paid for the round-trip would be $120 plus tip and tax, in lieu of $160 plus tip and tax.

If it was a trip to the airport only with a return a few days or weeks later then the fare would be $90 plus tip and tax each way. 

Local round-trips are negotiable.


Passenger Education: When Does Wait-Time Start and How Much Is It?

We have had passengers call us to ask a few questions and the minute they say the words "wait-time" you could just about cue the music from the bathroom scene of Psycho complete with bloodcurdling scream.  From the horror stories we have heard, we can understand completely.

When it comes to airport pick ups, we disregard the "scheduled to land at" time and simply track the flight.  We will use the actual landing time and our wait time starts after the grace period ends.  We provide a grace period as a courtesy to passengers to arrive at the gate, wait for luggage and be processed through US Customs if necessary.  Our grace period for Domestic flights is a half hour (30 minutes) and one hour (1 hour) for International flights. 

No passenger emerges from the black hole of US Customs to find an astronomical bill awaiting on the other end and can be reassured that the taxi will be there as arranged.

Standard wait time is $30 an hour but we are flexible for budgets.

Pets Friendly Taxi Service

Domesticated Pets are welcome as long as they are crated for their safety.  No exotic pets, such as large cats, large mammals, large reptiles or venomous reptiles will be allowed within the confines of any of our vehicles.  In case you are wondering why we mention this, a past passenger wanted to transport his kitties which turned out to be a pair of adolescent tigers, so no exotic pets.  Regular domesticated animals?  Yes.  Exotic pets?  No, no, no, no, no.
