How far in advance will I receive my driver’s contact details?
A Once a driver has been allocated to the booking you will be sent an SMS with the drivers’ contact details, including the make and model of the car and the driver’s contact number.

The email address you provide us with will be sent the booking confirmation and a final receipt. We also ask for the passenger's mobile number so they can receive essential SMS alerts on the day of their ride. You can opt-out of providing us with an email address and mobile number; however, this could result in a number of ride-related issues like missing an error in a reservation or being unable to locate your driver at pick-up.

Rate & Payment
How much will my GroundK ride cost?
A GroundK's fares are based on distance calculations from the pick-up to drop-off location. In certain locales, the price is calculated by time and distance for garage to garage. In others, the calculation is based on the exact start and end points. To get an estimate of your ride, please visit groundk.com and enter your ride details with the date and time you will need the service.
Are there additional or hidden fees?
A GroundK does not have hidden fees. We show you your estimated total upfront, which includes all charges with the exception of wait time, stops, parking or tolls, which cannot be calculated until the ride is complete.
Payment and confirmation of reservation
A Your reservation is only confirmed once you have made your payment.
• You must make a payment within 24 hours of 'Reservation Available' status, that is, 'payment available' status. Once the payment is processed, you will receive information related to confirmation of reservation via 'SMS' and 'email.'

• Please be informed that we do not take any responsibility for any disadvantages caused by reservations being held without payment.
• Additional charges incurred at the site on the day of using the service is be paid after our field staff or customer center representative confirms the applicable charges with the client.
Why do you charge hourly hire from garage to garage?
A We charge for the time used by both chauffeur and car to reach the pick up point and return to the garage after dropping the passenger. This is deemed to be the driver's 'working hours' and is standard charging procedure. For example if the driver leaves the city center garage to pick up at an airport and then take a passenger to a location outside the city, it is quite likely that the passenger may only be in the vehicle for 1 hour but the total time for vehicle and driver could be 4 hours or more. For Hourly charter fixed rates will apply start from 4hour services.

What if my flight is early or delayed?
A We ask for your flight information when booking your ride. This information allows us to track your flight - so early or late - when your flight arrives we'll be there.
