There are three (3) primary charges associated with the transportation of an adolescent minor. These charges are for the Guides, Airfare & Hotel.
We charge a flat rate fee for our Guides for each 24 hours of transport time. This flat rate fee includes:
Any transport that can be accomplished by driving, within the following geographic areas:
If Airfare is needed we charge at cost with no mark up fees. Airfare can be expensive and if we can schedule the transport with sufficient advance notice a very significant savings can be realized. The client is welcome to use any Airfare discounts or frequent flier programs they have at their disposal. When Airfare is needed we attempt to secure the best possible fares available. We also have private planes available for families.
Hotels are generally utilized only in a special circumstance or at the specific request of the client. All Hotel costs are additional to the flat rate and are charged at cost with no markup fees.
Other fees are only applied if there are extenuating circumstances surrounding the transport, or if a client makes a special request. Any additional charges are discussed at the time the request is made. A written quote is available upon request.
All fees can be paid in advance by Credit Card, or are collected when the Guides arrive to start the transport.
In regards to the escorting services for adults and minors requiring a traveling companion we charge a flat rate fee for each 24 hours of travel. We will need to determine the number of companions requested, what background of our Guides best fits your particular needs and the time involved in your travel plans. Our fees are based upon what arrangements you require us to make on your behalf, and the particular circumstances surrounding the itinerary. We will work closely with you on all aspects of the travel plans and provide a written proposal for you approval prior to any fees being charged.
We accept the following forms of payment:
"I am so grateful that USA Guides Inc. was recommended to me when my husband and I decided to send our son Matt to Eagles Nest School. Your guidance on the phone during my initial contact was very helpful, you were patient and answered all my questions. When Ron Buck contacted me I received the same professionalism that I received from you. Ron was very helpful in making me feel comfortable about Matt's transportation to the school. When Ron and Robert arrived at our home their calm demeanor helped my feel less nervous. Matt did show some resistance upon leaving the house, but the situation was handled quickly. When Ron called me from the plane he assured me that Matt was OK, he calmed down in the car and everything was going smoothly. After Matt arrived at Eagles Nest Ron again called me to give me more details of the trip. I appreciated his report and felt relieved that Matt was with two men with compassion and understanding. I think that both Ron and Robert made a difficult situation more comfortable for Matt. I have nothing but high praise for your company and especially feel that Ron Buck and Robert Skinner are top professionals and would recommend your services to my friends and family. Thank you very much."
