How It Works


Limousine time starts from the scheduled pick-up time on your contract.

We schedule travel time pretty tightly to keep the cost down but, we also have to consider the time of day and traffic. It's vitally important that you arrive by the the contract listed "coverage start/meet" time or earlier.

The minimum booking time for our transportation vendors is two hours. Thereafter, we are allowed to add time in 1/2 hour increments.

Any pick-up starting in Waikiki and with a ceremony location outside of Honolulu/Waikiki, will require extra travel time. If pick-up starts outside of Waikiki, extra "barn time" will be required.

Important: Select the appropriate vehicle for the number of passengers you expect. State PUC regulations and insurance requires that passengers cannot exceed the licensed passenger capacity. That means that, if it's a warm body, it's a passenger, including children. Extra passengers will not not be allowed, absolutely no exceptions.

FYI: Baby seats and seats for children are not required for taxi's and limousines. Child seats are not provided or offered for any of our vehicles.


Specifics


Please make sure that you have given us your exact hotel name or pick-up location address. Some hotels have similar names and/or are part of hotel chains.

Be waiting and ready to board the vehicle at least 5 minutes before the contract scheduled pick-up time.

Be on the lookout for your AHW transportation.

If there is no main lobby pick-up area or your hotel fronts the street or you notice that limos can't fit, you must be outside on the street. Drivers cannot leave the vehicle.

Use the restroom before you leave and avoid excessive liquid intake. If the vehicle has to find a public restroom on route and stop, this will make you late.

All transportation service is "point-to-point". Once you are picked up, there are no intermediate stops, detours, sight-seeing stops, beer runs LOL, etc. between the pick-up and drop-off points in either direction. Simply, we take you to the ceremony and take you back to the pick-up location or pre-designated drop-off location.

The vehicle will remain on "standby" during the ceremony, either at the site (if allowed) or nearby. You can leave your belongings and gear in the car.

FYI: Unlike a taxi, Uber, and some limo taxi's, our drivers do not leave to do other jobs and then when you call them for pick-up, they say they'll be back in 45 minutes.


FYI: None of our ceremony vendors (minister, photographer, musician, videographer.) are licensed or insured to accept passengers. If there were an accident, you may not sue but, your insurance company will :)

We do our best to schedule the appropriate transportation coverage time to save on cost but, must also consider time of day traffic, pick-up, drop-off, and ceremony locations, the route, and anticipated traffic. Sometimes clients will arrive early and other times just a couple minutes late, that means we scheduled correctly. Early is good, late is very bad!

No, you do not get to cruise around or take a tour after the ceremony to use "left-over" time (if any). Remember, it's "point-to-point" and the time is booked "up to" two hours.

IMPORTANT: Many of our transportation vendors have bottled water though, this is not a guaranty.You may bring your own drinks but, remember there are no stops LOL.


Approximate Transportation Time

These are the approximate time we scheduled for a basic ceremony package with pick-up in Waikiki.

Time of day may also affect the travel time. Early morning travel and travel after 3 pm should expect peak traffic and more time being required.

More time will also be required if you have extra ceremony services (cake, portrait sessions, or a Photo Tour). Also, travel and coverage times below do not include "barn time" for pick-ups outside of Waikiki.

Honolulu/Waikiki: 2 hrs.

East Honolulu: 2.5 hrs.

Windward: 2.5 - 3.0 hrs.

West Oahu: Up to 3.5 - 5.0 hrs.

North Shore: up to 4 - 6 hrs.

FYI: Unlike most transportation companies. Our limousine vendors allow us to book 1/2 hour increments though, specialty vehicles may require 1 hour increments.

"Barn Time"

If your pick-up is outside of Waikiki, transportation companies require what's called "barn time".

Waikiki is home base or the "barn". All transportation coverage starts from there.

If your pick-up location is outside of Waikiki, the time it takes for the vehicle to get there for pick-up and then to return to the "barn" after dropping you off, is calculated into the coverage time.

Simply, the meter starts when the vehicle leaves Waikiki and it ends when it gets back.
