Airport Pick Up Information

What time should I schedule my pick up at the Airport?

Generally, we ask that you schedule your pick up from the airport 30 to 45 minutes AFTER your flight lands. This will allow you enough time to deplane, walk to baggage claim, claim your luggage and exit the terminal building to the ground transportation area.

What if my flight is delayed?

Our Dispatch tracks all flights for incoming passengers. If your flight is delayed, in most cases, we will know before you do. Not to worry - our Dispatcher on duty will notify the driver and adjust their pick up time. There is no additional charge to you for flight delays.

How will I find my driver?

It is important that you have contact with your driver. There is NO airport in the United States that will allow ANY vehicle (Commercial or Personal) to "sit parked" in front of the airport terminal waiting. The authorities will demand that the driver move the vehicle after 1 to 2 minutes.

1. We ask that you provide us with your Cell Phone number when you make your reservation. It is our policy that our driver calls you 15 minutes before your scheduled pick up time to coordinate the exact pick up location.

2. If you do not have a cell phone, it will be your responsibility to contact your driver

Note: If you have a cell phone number OUTSIDE the USA, our driver will NOT be able to call you. You will need to call the driver.

 

Cruise Port Pick Up Information

What time should I schedule my pick up at the Cruise Terminal?

Disembarking a cruise liner is different than deplaning. Please review the information below and plan accordingly!

Getting Off the Ship

On most ships, you'll know it's disembarkation day because public address systems start bellowing the news rather early in the morning. But don't hurry. The ship has to be cleared by Customs and port authorities before you can actually leave. If you have a particularly early flight home, alert the purser's office at least a day in advance and they will give you priority disembarkation, as designated by the same color-coded tags on your luggage. If you have a later flight, kick back and enjoy another cup of coffee. This is not a process that goes particularly fast. Remember, you aren't allowed to get off earlier than the time designated by your luggage tags, but you can get off later.

Immigration

Immigration authorities used to do a blanket clearance of the whole ship when the time came to disembark at a U.S. port. Only non-U.S. citizens or green card holders needed to meet with authorities. But in recent times, with concern over terrorists entering the U.S. and what not, everyone may be required to appear before authorities at some point during the cruise. If that's the case, listen to the public address announcements for details about the clearance meeting: You usually meet in some sort of lounge, all family members must attend, and you need to bring your passport or ID (details will be given on the ship).

Customs

For cruises disembarking in the U.S., you will have to fill out a Customs Declaration form (one per family), which you'll receive on the ship -- if you get off the ship in Canada, you clear customs when you get to the airport; and for Europe cruises you clear Customs when you return to the U.S. Customs inspectors don't check each and every bag, but you don't want to get caught breaking the rules. There are stiff fines, for instance, for bringing back Cuban cigars. The standard allowance for a U.S. citizen is $800 per traveler (kids count too) in duty-free goods. That can include 1 carton of cigarettes or 100 cigars and 1 liter of alcohol if you are over 21. If you go over the limits you may have to pay a 10% tax

Interesting Fact

Here's a fact for you...the average cruise port receives 4 to 6 scheduled cruise ships daily and they all arrive around the same time. Passengers must disembark, claim their luggage, then go through US Customs and Immigration before actually being allowed to leave the terminal building. All of Florida's Cruise Ports have one road in and one road out to exit the Cruise Port. Let's do some math...each cruise ship carries on the average of 2000 guests and when you multiply that by an average of 5 ships per port, that is 10,000 people all trying to leave the port at the same time. Setting aside the newly arriving 10,000 guests whom are leaving on their cruise that same day. So now there is 20,000 people coming in and going out of a cruise terminal. It can be quite the nightmare! Book your flights accordingly!

What if we are delayed getting through Customs and Immigration?

If you are delayed going through US Customs and Immigration, you MUST contact your driver as soon as possible to notify them of the delay. There is NO additional charge for customers who are delayed in Customs and Immigration IF they call the driver before their scheduled pick up time.

How will I find my driver?

It is important that you have contact with your driver. Cruise Ports are very busy with hundreds of shuttle coming in and out.

1. We ask that you provide us with your Cell Phone number when you make your reservation. It is our policy that our driver calls you 15 minutes before your scheduled pick up time to coordinate the exact pick up location.

2. If you do not have a cell phone, it will be your responsibility to contact your driver

Note: If you have a cell phone number OUTSIDE the USA, our driver will NOT be able to call you. You will need to call the driver.
