In our reply emails a mobile phone number and the name of the driver assigned so you can contact him on the day of the meeting.  The aforementioned driver will also be recognizable as he will have with him a table with the logo of our company or, in case of different agreements, with a table with the name of the passenger or the company logo.

What do I do if the driver’s name is not the one indicated to me in your confirmation email?

It may happen that for various reasons, unforeseeable on the date of confirmation, the driver can not provide the service and therefore must be sent the driver that our company assigns in place. If you want to dispel any doubt you can ask for confirmation by calling the number of the driver present in the email or the person with whom you had contact at the time of booking.

What is the maximum capacity of people you can carry?

Our passenger cars and their description and capacity are listed on the passenger car page.

There is no maximum number of luggage to carry. Our vehicle has a very large trunk but it is better to specify if there are large bags so that the driver can organize accordingly.

Is there a maximum baggage allowance?

There is no maximum luggage limit to carry and you do not pay any surcharges unless you need to use a second car. In that case, payments will be agreed. However, we would like to point out that our company does not carry goods and therefore, together with luggage, at least one passenger has to travel.
