I wish I had researched this company before booking with them. I'd give them ZERO stars if I could. When we arrived in Newark, we waited almost 45 minutes at the curb to be picked up. I called three times and their dispatch assured me the driver was 5 minutes away. The driver blamed their dispatch and their dispatch blamed the driver. This is a minor complaint compared to our drive from Long Island to JFK. I called the day before our departure from NY to ensure our driver would be on time. The told me to call 20 minutes before the driver's arrival to confirm. I did that and I was assured a 5:30 AM pickup. My daughter and I were outside the hotel at 5:25, and at 5:35 the driver showed up and complained that we weren't there at 5:30 so he went to get coffee. The entire drive, which was over 60 minutes, was horrifying. The driver was falling asleep at the wheel and drifed into lanes on numerous occasions. We were honked at and stared at and we were terrified the whole trip. The driver kept jumping in his seat and shifting around to wake up, drank coffee, rolled down the windows, ate a banana, and grumbled the whole drive. He missed our gate and had to circle the airport and snapped at my daughter when she told him he was in the wrong lane. He told her that we had plenty of time to get our flight. I sent an email to the company and did not hear from them. I called a couple of days later to follow-up on the email and I was reprimanded for not contacting them sooner. I was also told that I should have called the company from the car so they could send another driver to finish the trip. In what world would I want to be left on the side of the road on the way to the airport? When I asked that I receive a refund on my trip, the woman at the desk offered me 10% on my next visit. Her second offer was to refund the gratuity. She would not refund the trip because we "received the service". When I asked to speak to management, she told me they won't take my call. I will never do business with a company that does not allow access to management. Do not ever book with this company.
