Reservations and Cancellations
- A valid credit card is required when booking a reservation. Limos of Austin accepts all major credit cards. A minimum $100 non-refundable deposit is required to secure all reservations. For most reservations, the remaining balance will be charged 7 days prior to the reservation date. If the reservation is made within 7 days of the reservation date, the entire balance will be charged immediately. For Proms, holidays, certain special events, and Saturday seasonal rentals during April, May, and October, a 50% deposit is required, and balance is due 14 days before the reservation date. Due to extremely high demand during the Formula One special event weekend, a 50% deposit is required, and balance is due 30 days before the reservation date. Any extra charges from going over the original time requested or from any other related fees per the Damage Policy will be billed after the charter. Over time charges are calculated by the quarter hour. Once remaining balance is charged, no refund is due.
- All cancellations will result in forfeiture of required deposits, or $100, without exceptions. Any cancellations made within 7 days of general reservations will result in forfeiture of 100% of total bill. Any cancellations made within 14 days of holidays, proms, certain special events, and Saturday seasonal rentals during April, May, and October will result in forfeiture of 100% of total bill. Any cancellations made within 30 days of the Formula One special event weekend will result in forfeiture of 100% of total bill. Limos of Austin is not responsible for service delayed or not rendered due to traffic conditions, accidents, mother nature, or any other unforeseeable act of God. In case of mechanical difficulties, a replacement vehicle will be offered or credit that is mutually agreeable to both parties. For any pre-arranged pick up and drop off booking, Limos of Austin allows no more than a 15 minute grace period for the customer to arrive at the pick up location. After the 15 minute grace period, the driver may leave the pick up location and there will be no charges refunded for the booking. If customer requests driver to wait additional time, additional charges will apply.
- All unpaid deposits and balances are authorized by Customer, with either verbal or signed acceptance of services. For most reservations, hourly rates include fuel, taxes, and tolls. Any gratuity provided to your chauffeur is appreciated but left solely to your discretion. For proms, weddings, quinceaneras, graduations, airport corporate car service, and third party bookings, a gratuity of 20% is automatically added to the reservation.
- Once a reservation has been made and confirmed, the total number of hours reserved and paid for cannot be reduced. All limousine runs are booked according to the client’s reservation form and are reserved for that time period, allowing us to book other limousine runs, before or after, depending on client’s reserved time. If your limousine service ends early for any reason, you will still be charged for the total amount specified in the original limousine reservation form from Limos of Austin.
- There will be NO SMOKING in any of the limousines contracted. NARCOTICS OR CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ARE PROHIBITED AND WILL RESULT IN IMMEDIATE TERMINATION OF THE SERVICE with no refund. The consumption or possession of alcohol of anyone under the age of 21 is strictly prohibited and thus will result in immediate termination of service with no refund. If at any time the service is terminated due to unruly conduct, damages to the vehicle, or abuse of any kind that Limos of Austin deems valid, no refund of money will be made. Limos of Austin is not responsible for personal property left in vehicles, and highly recommends that any and all personal valuables be removed from the vehicle when unattended. Customer agrees not to exceed the passenger capacity of the vehicle provided. Limos of Austin reserves the right to refuse service as it deems appropriate.
