CONDITIONS OF SERVICE
These Conditions of Service (hereafter referred to as “Conditions of Service”) constitute a binding, legal agreement between the user and Legends Limousine covering User Services (“Services”) provided by Legends Limousine.
Without expressed agreement with the following Conditions of Service, users are instructed to discontinue using the Services.

Additional charges may be incurred as a result of any modifications to your trip after pick-up. The user is required to solicit an updated price from the Chauffeur or the dispatcher before proceeding continuing.
At the discretion of Legends Limousine, all advertised rates are subject to change without notice. Please note that prices may also rise during holiday seasons or special events.
The user should be aware that the price estimate before departure is an estimation based on information that is subject to change and was provided at the time of the reservation. Additional fees for tolls, gratuity, idling time and added stops are not included in the estimate and may increase your rate.
Given the unpredictable nature of urban traffic patterns, road conditions and weather events on the days of your transportation, your Chauffeur retains the authority to evaluate the most efficient and secure route to your destination. This may include the use of a toll road to guarantee your safe and timely arrival.
Responsibility for any fees throughout the trip rests with the passenger. The user will be subject to the full toll rate, and discounted rates are not applicable. Tolls will be added to your final bill upon arriving at your destination. Please note that should a Chauffeur be prevented from returning to headquarters without paying a toll, round trip tolls will be charged to the user. Approximate tolls:
• Manhattan to LaGuardia Airport – $7.50
• Manhattan to JFK Airport – $7.50
• Manhattan to Newark Airport – $15.00
GRATUITY AND TIPPING
Gratuity is left to the preference of the passenger when traveling in a Sedan, Luxury Sedan, or Mini-Van. However, stretch limousines, SUVs, or 13-passenger vans require an obligatory gratuity of 20%.
Levied at 15-minute intervals, time spent idling or waiting is charged at the hourly rate for a particular vehicle. These charges may apply in the event of the passenger arriving late to a pre-determined pick-up as well as any time spent idling at additional. Legends Limousine allows for a specified courtesy waiting grace time period on roundtrip airport pick up, however, charges may apply once the complimentary period is over. Should user experience flight delays for airport pick-ups, Legends Limousine will not charge for idling time.
Estimated rates do not encompass any additional stops on the user’s trip. Without explicit prior approval, phone reservation terms do not include other stops. The rate calculation for extra stops considers the distance added from the route between the first pick-up and final destination. For a precise quote, contact 718-788-1234.
AIRPORT PARKING FEES
Please be aware that Legends Limousine offers a meet and greet service within the airport terminal that requires an additional parking fee determined by the New York and New Jersey Port Authority.
Failure to observe the cancellation policy will result in a credit card charge. Users must notify a reservationist of a trip cancellation at least 2 hours in advance for transportation anywhere within New York City’s five boroughs including New York City airports and areas extending four hours outside New York City.
FAILURE TO ARRIVE FOR PICK UP

Failure to arrive for pick up without prior notification may lead to a charge.
Legends Limousine requires that all reservation modifications be submitted at least three hours before pick-up. Should a change be requested less than three hours before pick-up, such changes cannot be guaranteed, and the subsequent cancellation may result in a full or partial charge to the customer.
CREDIT CARD POLICY
Legends Limousine accepts major credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover, and requires users to supply the credit card number in advance for pre-approval. This process is intended for pre-approval purposes only and does not constitute payment for the trip. Using a credit or debit card results in a temporary hold of 150% of the quoted fare to be placed on the card. This hold will secure the estimated total including tolls, gratuity, additional stops, and idling time. This hold is released when payment is complete within 5-7 business days after the service is rendered.
The credit card in question must be presented to the Chauffeur at the time of pick-up and users should be aware that the Chauffeur reserves the right to request additional identification to ensure the validity of the card. All signatures and information must match before the card is accepted as payment.
Throughout the service and during the trip, users may not leave the vehicle, for any reason without a preliminary signing of the credit card slip. Failure to do so will result in the full fare being charged against the card.

It takes approximately 5-7 business days after the Legend Limousine services have been rendered to process user credit card payments with the date of processing appearing on user credit card statements.
