Terms and Conditions

Unless otherwise agreed to in advance and writing, the following Terms & Conditions apply. Total charges incurred are billed to the client’s credit card unless invoice arrangements have been made and approved in advance, or there is an existing corporate billing account. Overland accepts VISA, MasterCard, and American Express credit cards. Checks or cash may also be accepted subject to an authorized credit card guarantee and identity validation for security purposes. Checks may be required to be received in advance to clear before date(s) services are rendered. New and one-time clients will be required to present their card for imprinting.

Airport Transfers

According to our policy its says that if customer flight canceled of there is no show by the customer with a valid reason, then there will be no charges for that and if the flight delays, there is no waiting time charges applied to the customers. Meet and greet will cost you $20 extra for inside pickup, and in case of miscalculation of time by the customer side, we will be not responsible for that.

Point to Point Transfers

For local transfer like point to point if the customer takes much time to come outside, so in that case, waiting time charges will be applied to the customer. Wait time beyond the fifteen (15) minute “grace” period as well as for extra stops or indirect routing are charged additional, or charges may revert to the prevailing hourly rate. Transfer rates are a function of time, distance, and zone locations.

Hourly Service

Overland provides an hourly rate for all other services based on a two (3) hour or more minimum charge. Hourly or “As Directed” services allow for multiple stops and wait time as directed by the client. The vehicle will stay with the client or at their stop locations (as parking availability allows) for the entire rental time. Travel time may be charged on a “garage-to-garage” basis and is made a part of the respective hourly minimums.

Cancellations & Changes

Overland understands that cancellations are sometimes necessary and unavoidable. Unless otherwise agreed to or provided in writing, the following applies:

We generally accept cancellations on sedan & SUV airport transfers without a charge two (3) hours before the scheduled pickup time.

Vans, Minibuses, premium, and specialty vehicles require no less than a six-hour cancellation notice.

Motorcoaches require no less than two-week cancellation notice and up to 30 days’ notice.

International cancellations require a minimum 12-hour notice or as noted in your confirmation.

Cancellation notices may vary due to local conditions (i.e., weather), event, vehicle type, and market area.

Time changes made with less than the required notice above will still result in additional and possibly full charges. Example: At 1:30 pm, a requested change in pick up time from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm will result in a full fee for the 2:00 pm trip and a new charge for the 4:00 pm trip.

No Shows

If you do not see your chauffeur, please call our office immediately at 718-717-8559 to avoid the full-charge “no-show” fee. We generally include all admin/licensing and/or STC fees and recommended 20% chauffeur gratuity in the minimum no-show fee for your convenience. However, the gratuity amount is always 100% at your discretion. You may increase, decrease, or have the Tip removed entirely. Please advise on the gratuity you wish to pay if any.

For Point-to-Point & Airport Service, a fee equal to the base fare, wait time, admin/licensing/STC, and recommended chauffeur gratuity (gratuity amount at your discretion), will be charged when the client does not show at the pre-arranged pickup location.

For Hourly Service, a fee equal to 3 hours of service, admin/licensing/STC, and recommended gratuity (20%) will be charged when the client does not show at the pre-arranged pickup location.
