Reservations and Traveling
1. How much notice is required to make a reservation?
Queens Village suggests that you book a reservation 24 hours in advance to ensure a car will be available. However, we can provide pickups with as little notice as 15-30 mintes depending on volume. You may call us for availability.
2. Will I get a call when my car arrives?
As a courtesy to our customers we do attempt to contact all our customers when their drivers are on location. However, we are not always able to contact passengers upon a driver’s arrival due to heavy call volume.
3. Can the driver come into my building to pick up my luggage and bring it out to the car?
Unfortunately, drivers are unable to leave their vehicles unattended. Our drivers will be pleased to assist with your luggage from the front of your building to the vehicle.
4. May I make a last minute change to my reservation?
Queens Village attempts, to the best of its ability, to accommodate last minute changes.
5. If I have already booked a reservation from the airport, what should I do once I land?
After you retrieve your luggage, please call us with your confirmation number so that we can direct you to your car. Your driver will pick you up within minutes at a designated curbside meeting point located right outside your baggage claim.
You may reach us at 718-776-8787 or 718-776-8733l.
