    Anyone used them? They quoted me a BMW Transfer to Fremont for $38, looking up taxi fare for same trip seems to come in around $30, to me a the few extra dollars seems worth the possible taxi line. That being said I do not want to be stuck calling for my driver either!

    On I has been around for a while. I drove for them before presidential. They have some new cars, but they are a small fleet. That's about all I know

    Thanks. It is just for a transfer so type of car does not really matter to me. I Just want something that is realiable and since price is similar to taxi quicker.

    Well nevermind...

    I was quoted at time of reservation the price of $38 and received a confirmation saying it would cost $38 with all my information on it.

    THEN I got separate email saying that it was $38 per hour, I would be charged 1.5 hours for the transfer, gratuity was added (I assumed that WAS NOT included), and another 20% misc fee was added bringing my total to about $75 about twice what I was quoted on the website and in the initial email!

    So I suppose I will be taking the taxi as I just canceled my reservation.

    I just looked on the website and saw no fine print and in my first email there is nothing else that states any of these fees, not did it say to expect a second confirmation.

    Below is a copy of the confirmation email. I wish there were upfront with pricing prior to me handing them all my personal information, it is very deceptive. Is this type of pricing common?

    Arrival: McCarran International Airport Las Vegas, Wayne Newton Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV, United States
    Destination: Fremont Hotel & Casino, Fremont Street, Las Vegas, NV, United States
    Appointment: 2015-01-08 21:45:00
    Passengers: 2
    Luggage: 3
    Vehicle: BMW 740 li
    Vehicle price: $ 38
    Return ride: NO

    See its the bait and switch. A lot of companies are doing things by zone now. The strip to Sahara is zone 1,which is 1 hour, north of sahara is zone 2 is 1.5 hours. I have seen places that charge 2 hours for sams town, jw marriot, red rock sante fe. Its crazy. I cant wait to get my investors lines up.

    At least I found out now BEFORE i was at the airport, but it is still upsetting. The reservation system allowed me to put in the start and end point and spit out once price then I get an email with a quote for a different one.

    I do not mind if that is the policy but put it in plain view for everyone to see.

    The limo companies in Chicago will just have you put info in and email you a quote, I never seen anything like this.
