About Transportation

We schedule travel time pretty tightly to keep the cost down but, we also have to consider the time of day and traffic.

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

You must select the appropriate vehicle for the number of passengers.

Note: State PUC regulations and insurance requires that passengers cannot exceed the licensed passenger capacity including children and babies. Simply, if it's a warm body, it's a passenger. Extra passengers will not not be allowed, absolutely no exceptions.

Ceremony locations outside of Honolulu/Waikiki, will require extra travel time of 1/2 to 1 hour. See below.

If pick-up starts outside of Waikiki, extra time called "barn time" will be required. See below.

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 visible and on the lookout for our AHW transportation. We don't know how they do it but, our drivers will know you're ours :)

If there is no main lobby pick-up area or your hotel fronts a City street, you must be outside on the street. Drivers cannot leave the vehicle. Note: We will give the driver your contact names and mobile phone if it is a domestic number and of course, they will have your hotel name and number.

Use the restroom before you leave and avoid excessive liquid intake riding out to the ceremony. FYI: Waimanalo and Portlock have no public restrooms and all others do.

All transportation service is "point-to-point". Once you're 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.

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.

We do our best to schedule the appropriate travel time in consideration of usual traffic, pick-up, drop-off, and ceremony locations, and the route. Sometimes you may arrive early (good) and other times just a couple minutes late. Either way, that means we scheduled correctly.

No, you do not get to cruise around or take a limo tour after the ceremony to use "left-over" time (if any). It's "point-to-point".

Hard or soft coolers or any container holding ice or water except, for personal drinking bottles or containers are not allowed in any vehicles.

Child seats are not required for commercial vehicles. If you want one, let us know and we'll check for availability and rental cost.

Alcohol or Champagne is only allowed in vehicles which have a divider between the driver and passengers i.e. stretch limousine only. Sparkling apple cider is allowed in all vehicles.

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 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.

"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.
