- What is the difference between an inside pick up or an outside one at airports?
Inside pick up: The driver waits for you at the baggage claim area with a sign that has the passenger's name on it.
Outside pick up: After the flight has landed, the passenger needs to call Groundlink at (800) 685-6084 after they either go through customs if it's an international flight or pick up their luggage if it's a domestic flight. The driver will be alerted to which pick up location or terminal the passenger is exiting from. Your car will be waiting curbside at this location.
- What happens if my ship is delayed?
Groundlink monitors your ship's arrival time. If your ship is delayed, Groundlink will update your pickup time.
- When will wait time be billed?
Guests have 45 minutes of free waiting time from the pick-up time that they have provided Groundlink. If you need to update your departure time in the event the ship is delayed or there is a delay in the departure process, please call Groundlink at (800) 685-6084.
- Will I still be picked up on time if my flight is delayed?
Groundlink constantly monitors flights automatically adjusting the pick up time in accordance with the latest arrival time of the flight. As long as you remain on the same airline and flight, you do not need to contact Groundlink as they will check the flight's status. Only in the event that you have changed airlines or flights, will you need to call Groundlink and give them the new information for your pick up.
- Can I have a driver wait for me with a sign outside of baggage claim?
Yes. You can request a "Meet and Greet" service (inside pick up) and your chauffeur will wait for you at baggage claim (for domestic flights) or outside Customs (for international flights) with a Groundlink sign and your name on it.
- Is there an additional cost for Meet and Greet service?
Yes. Groundlink charges additional $15 for this service plus parking fee.
