Dial 7 suggests that you book a reservation 24 hours in advance to ensure a car will be available. However, we can often provide unscheduled pickups. You may call us or check online for same-day availability.
2. Will I get a call when my car arrives?
As a courtesy to our customers we do attempt to contact all our customers when their drivers are on location. However, we are not always able to contact passengers upon a driver’s arrival due to heavy call volume.

Unfortunately, drivers are unable to leave their vehicles unattended. The drivers will be pleased to assist with your luggage from the front of your building to the vehicle.
4. How much notice is required to cancel a reservation?
Dial 7 requests that our customers cancel their reservations at least 2 hours in advance for Manhattan pick-ups and 3 hours in advance for pick-ups outside Manhattan. Cancellations made after the requested time-frames are subject to fees.

After you retrieve your luggage, please call us with your confirmation number so that we can direct you to your car.

1.Must I wear a seat belt in a Dial 7 car?
No. Dial 7 affiliated vehicles are for-hire vehicles. Therefore, their passengers are exempt from New York State from laws regarding seat belts. However, Dial 7 highly encourages all riders to buckle their seatbelts while traveling.
2. Must my child be in a child safety/booster seat?
NYC and TLC regulations regarding child safety seats: Drivers of yellow medallion taxicabs and for-hire vehicles and their passengers, are exempt from laws regarding car seats and seatbelts. Keep in mind, the TLC encourages everyone in the vehicle to buckle their seatbelts while riding in a cab. There are no Taxi and Limousine Commission rules regarding this, as it is a State exemption. Passengers with children are encouraged to bring their own car seats, which the drivers must allow passengers to install.
NOTE - Children under the age of seven are permitted to sit on an adult's lap.
3. Does Dial 7 supply infant or booster seats?
“ If you would like Dial 7 to provide child car seat, you may order an SUV equipped with a “standard” infant seat. We provide only one type of car seat which it may not be appropriate for all children. The seat is offered as a courtesy and is not required by law.”
4. What are the passenger and luggage capacities of the various vehicles?
Sedans and Luxury Sedans can accommodate up to four passengers with 3 standard size pieces of luggage.
