Wedding Car Hire FAQ

Wedding Car Hire – Frequently Asked Questions

Please feel free to share this link.

When we receive many enquiries from customers concerning Wedding Transport. We often get the same questions asked. We have compiled a list of questions that we hope may give you some answers and help you decide to use V.I.P. Taxis Galway Wedding Cars.

What service do you provide?

V.I.P Taxis Galway has been providing a professional, friendly wedding car hire service since established in 2003. We have built up a reputation for quality of service and a standard that is second to none. Our cars are all lovingly cared for and maintained to a very high standard of condition. Each car is valeted and mechanically checked before your special day. They are regularly serviced and maintained in a professional manner. The chauffeurs which are all mature experienced drivers will help make your special day a time to remember.

What is included in the Wedding Car Hire Service?

We will supply the Booked Wedding Car. It will arrive at least 30 minutes before it is booked to depart for the church or ceremony. It will be supplied with ribbons and silk flowers. It will have bottled water, tissues and umbrellas on board. It will be driven by a uniformed chauffeur. The car is hired for a minimum three hours and Maximum five hours, from the time it is booked to attend the first pickup. It will convey the bridal party to the church or place of ceremony. It will remain at the ceremony location. It will then convey the bridal couple to the reception. It will be available for any photos before or after the service and later with the Bride and Groom at the reception if required. It will stay until it is released by either the bride or groom.

Can we use the car for more than one journey? i.e. take the bridesmaids or mother of the bride to the ceremony before the bride.

Yes. Our prices are for a three hour minimum hiring and not for the number of journeys taken. A general guideline is, a journey time of 15 minutes or less is a practical time to make two journeys. If the journey time is longer, then it means our turn around time is longer. We would have to drop off the passengers we have taken on the first trip in sufficient time to allow us to return for the bride. From experience we have found bridesmaids, mother of the bride etc; do not want to arrive to early and certainly not before guests and the groom. Two cars is sometimes the better option and give you the option to use the second car for transport to the reception.

Does the car come with Bridal ribbons and Flowers?

Yes. We will supply ivory or white ribbons and silk flowers which are colour coordinated to the colour of the cars interior. From experience we have found coloured ribbon has to match the colour scheme set by the bride. If you want a particular coloured ribbon we ask that you supply it to us before the wedding day.

Do you provide a car for the Groom?

We can supply a separate car to pickup the groom and the best man. This could be a saloon wedding car. The saloon car could be used in conjunction with picking up the bridesmaids if required. Alternatively the Bridal car could be booked to attend an address earlier to convey the groom and the best man to the church or ceremony and then attend the address to take the bride to the ceremony. This usually means hiring the wedding car for a longer period of time but is a better option than relying on a mini cab or taxi.

What do the cars carry?

All cars are decorated with silk ribbons in ivory or white and have colour coordinated silk flowers on the rear window . All the cars have tissues, water, and umbrellas.

How long do we have the use of the wedding car?

Our prices quoted are for a wedding car booked for a minimum of three hours and maximum five hours. This time starts from the time the car is booked to arrive at the first pickup. If the car arrives early that is our time and you will not be charged extra. Should you require the car for a longer period of time or there is a possibility the hiring, due to the travelling distance or time, may extend past the stated finish time, then a charge of €50 per hour or part thereof.

Can we view a Wedding car before we decide to book?

Yes. If fact we would be very pleased to meet you. It gives us the opportunity to meet you and discuss any arrangements. It also allows you to meet us and satisfy yourself as to the quality and condition of the car that will be used on your wedding day.

Does the car do any other weddings on the same day?

No. certainly not. We only book each wedding car out to one wedding per day.

How do we make a payment for the Wedding car?

We ask for a €50 deposit to secure the booking of the car. The balance is due on the day usually paid on arrival at the reception venue.

How far in advance do we have to book the Wedding Car?

To avoid disappointment we suggest the sooner the better. Most of our bookings are made between 9 months and 18 months before the wedding date.

If on the day we decide to make a detour or attend a different location, will there be an additional charge?

That will depend on the request. When you make your booking and you have given us your requirements the price is based on the distance and time we have to travel. If the detour does not involve substantial extra time or mileage and at the discretion of the chauffeur we will be happy to accommodate your request.

Will the chauffeur be dressed in a suit?

Yes. All our drivers will be dressed smartly in a suit, shirt, and tie.

If on the day we want to take additional passengers, is this OK?

We can only take the number of passengers that the car is legally allowed to carry. If there are spare seats in the wedding car then this is no problem .If this involves extra trips then we can also accommodate your request. Bear in mind that if we have not been informed about additional trips before hand, the car may not have arrived in sufficient time to make the extra journeys and still return to take the bridal party on time The booking hire of five hours may be exceeded and therefore an extra charge may be incurred.

Can we reserve a Wedding car?

We will provisionally hold a wedding car for seven days after initial contact, and we will confirm booking on receipt of the €50 deposit.

Do you provide additional vehicles for Guests?

Yes, we can supply additional cars, minibuses and buses to transport you guests.

Can you supply vehicles to collect and transfer overseas guests?

Yes, we can collect your overseas guests from any Airport or Sea port in Ireland. Depending on the size of the group we can provide cars, minibuses or buses as required.

Do you do Honeymoon Transfers?

Yes. This is treated as a separate booking and cost will depend on time and distance. We will transfer you to any Airport or Sea port in Ireland.

How many people will be able to travel in the car?

Our modern cars can only carry the amount of passengers designed for the car (four) and is regulated by the National Transport Authority.

Will you do Civil Ceremonies and non Church Weddings?

We are available for any denomination or style of wedding including same sex weddings. We realise that some non Church weddings involve having our services for a longer or shorter period of time therefore you would need to inform and discuss your arrangements so that we are aware of your requirements and able to give you an accurate cost of the hiring.

What areas do you cover?

We cover all of County Galway. We will attend locations in parts of South Mayo/Roscommon North Clare and Athlone. We will quote for other areas but recommend you use local suppliers if possible. If the wedding is not local to our base there would be a supplement on the prices depending on the time and distance travelled .Please bear in mind that for us to attend a wedding some distance away we have to allow nearly twice the normal travelling time to insure we arrive at the booked time. We may also have to allow time to clean the car if it has got dirty on route. This all adds to the cost of the hiring.

Will you arrive at the home address in time for photos etc?

It is part of our service to show an arrival time on the booking form 30 minutes before we are required to depart. This allows any photos or video to be taken if required. It also gives you peace of mind that the wedding car has arrived for your departure in plenty of time and not at the last minute that might cause you some anxiety.

Could you pick up the groom and best man before the bride?

Yes. This can be arranged either by a separate car or by using the wedding car prior to it collecting the Bride.

Are there any discounts available.

Please call John to see if there are any promotional rates available. There is a small discount available if you decide to hire a second car. Please check our website www.viptaxisgalway.com for Special offers.

What happens if we have to cancel or postpone the wedding?

We kindly request that cancellations are made well in advance of the prearranged date. The deposit will have to be forfeited.

Is it cheaper for a weekday wedding?

Most of our weddings are on Friday and Saturday. If your wedding is on a weekday Monday to Thursday we will offer a Discount.

Should we tip the Chauffeur?

This is a decision for you. Your chauffeur will give you a personal service and attend to any requirements or queries that you should need. This is far beyond that given by a taxi driver for which a gratuity is normally given. He also will be with you for a much longer period. Should you feel that his service is above and beyond your expectations then any gratuity would be received with thanks and appreciation?

Our Ceremony and Reception is at the same venue. Is the cost of the car hire cheaper?

Unfortunately not. We still have to supply a wedding car with chauffeur, this includes valeting the interior, washing and polishing the exterior and preparing the car with bridal livery. We must include the travelling time to and from the wedding. The car is only booked for your wedding on that day whether a full wedding or a single journey. We do offer a short return trip for the bride and groom after the ceremony if required.

Do you operate all through the Year?

Yes, we operate all year round.

Do you have matching colour cars?

Yes, we can arrange similar cars at time of booking this requires an additional booking fee.

Do you have full Limo Insurance?

Yes. All our vehicles have full private hire insurance.

What if the Wedding car is delayed on arriving at the Bride’s house?

By the very nature of our service we have to allow much more time than it would normally take to travel to the first booked address. If possible we check with traffic reports. We also if possible avoid motorways so if there is a delay we are then able to turn around and find an alternative route. Should a problem occur that is beyond our control we will always contact you and explain the situation?

Will you travel any distance?

It becomes impracticable both in time and cost to the customer to travel great distances. We will always advise and discuss your wedding arrangements.

Do you supply umbrellas?

Yes. All cars have umbrellas on board.

I hope these questions and answers assist you with any queries you may have regarding the service we supply. Should you still have any concerns we will be happy to discuss any matters by contacting John on 00 353 (87) 826 0758

VIP Taxis Galway is fully licenced, insured and meets all the requirements and regulations set out by the National Transport Authority of Ireland.
