If the stop exceeds fifteen (15) minutes, the customer will be charged the transfer base rate plus the hourly charge for the vehicle in fifteen (15) minute increments up to forty-five (45) minutes (rounded up) for the time that the chauffeur waits. If there is more than one stop, or if the one stop lasts more than forty-five (45) minutes, then the trip will convert to an hourly charge.
