What cities does Teddy’s service?
Teddy’s serves more than 500 cities throughout the world.
What is Teddy’s cancellation policy?
To cancel a reservation please call 203.831.4108.
Cancellations must be received at least two hours in advance of the service pickup time for for pickups between Newark, NJ and Hartford, CT. Reservations for service elsewhere may require as much as 4 to 24 hours notice for sedan and SUV service days for buses. For all reservations, please check your confirmation for the specific policy, which is determined by your city of service and vehicle type.
Late cancellations, in our primary markets, incur a fee of half the estimated fare, up to $200, plus any incurred expenses such as tolls or parking. Cancellations for service with affiliated partners in other markets will often be the full fare and expenses. View our policy for delayed or diverted flights.
Do I need to tip my driver?
An industry-standard gratuity is automatically added to your receipt to facilitate your company reimbursing you. No further tip is expected. Do not hesitate to call Teddy’s anytime to adjust that standard amount down or up as you see fit.
Teddy’s rates are all-inclusive; we compensate our drivers adequately. Our drivers have been known to go beyond their expected duties; in this situation, if you feel compelled to give your driver an extra tip, it is appreciated but certainly not mandatory.
How soon before a flight should I be picked up?
For U.S. flights, we recommend arriving at the airport 90 minutes before your flight time. For international flights, we recommend arriving at the airport 2-3 hours before your flight time.
What if my inbound flight is delayed or diverted?
Teddy’s tracks your inbound flight, for maximum efficiency. Then, in the Greater New York/Connecticut markets, the first hour of waiting time is free. This usually mitigates all but the most stubborn gate, baggage or immigration delays. After that, we charge by the quarter-hour at the prevailing hourly fare for the vehicle-style you ordered.
If, after arriving into regional airspace, your flight diverts, Teddy’s policy is to quickly cancel that reservation and book another car once we confirm your departure from the diversion city and you are on your way back to NY or CT. This cuts your costs, for the original reservation, to half the estimated fare plus incurred costs like parking or tolls.
This is usually less expensive than keeping car#1 at the airport for an unknown diversion delay. But your final air leg will be short so there may be a short wait for car#2.
Alternatively, you can elect to request us to keep car#1 on your trip, on the clock, to assure we are there before you finally arrive at your intended airport. That first hour is still free. Call Teddy’s anytime for help with these issues.
