PLEASE READ: Cancellation Policy, Cleaning Charges
In a perfect world, your child would not have a meltdown at the last minute forcing you to change your plans. In a perfect world, we would not add insult to injury by charging you for this last minute cancellation. Sadly, we don't live in a perfect world. Here is our cancellation policy for our various services:
- •Kid Car Manhattan: 2 Hours prior to your reservation
- •Kid Car by the Hour and MD: 4 Hours prior to your reservation
- •Kid Car Airport: 12 Hours prior to your reservation
Nobody likes cleaning up a sick child. That's why we provide sickness bags and towels in all of our vehicles and cover our (very expensive) car seats with car seat covers. If anyone is prone to car sickness, TELL YOUR DRIVER and he'll be happy to provide these items so that your child stays clean and you don't get hit with cleaning fees.Please note:
- •We only add a Cleaning Charge to your bill when something really 'awful' happens, and believe us,
- •We're billing you less than it actually costs us to clean up after your child, so
- •Please don't suggest that it should be included in the cost of the trip or that it was the driver's fault (that REALLY bothers us)

Kid Car by the Hour:
For families that want more flexibility or want to travel outside of Manhattan, Kid Car NY vehicles and drivers are available by the hour. All vehicles come equipped with properly installed car seats and are staffed by our specially trained and vetted drivers.
When making a reservation, it would be extremely helpful if you can provide us with a 'best guess' of how long you will need the vehicle (2.5 hours, for example) as this allows us to serve as many families as possible.
- •There is a 2 hour minimum for Kid Car by the Hour trips.
- •For trips beginning or ending outside of Manhattan, the clock starts/ stops when the vehicle leaves/ returns to Manhattan
Kid Car MD
Going to the doctor for a well check and want the peace of mind of knowing the car is waiting downstairs? Kid Car MD allows you to reserve a car for 90 minutes (no 2 hour minimum!), plenty of time to get you to the doctor and back home safe, sound, and sane.
- •If the trip extends beyond 90 minutes, two hour minimum applies.
Kid Car Brooklyn
Parents can now use Kid Car NY to travel between Manhattan and many Brooklyn neighborhoods.
- •Brooklyn neighborhoods include: Brooklyn Heights, Williamsburg, Park Slope, Prospect Heights and other 'west' Brooklyn neighborhoods.
Kid Car Newborn
Kid Car NY provides safe transport home from Manhattan hospitals to Manhattan residents. Properly installed infant car seats provide security for single births, twins, and even triplets.
Families that have personal vehicles in the city and want to make sure their personal car seat is properly installed (80-90% are not, according to the AAP) can make an appointment with a Kid Car NY Child Passenger Safety technician for a free seat check.
Kid Car Seat Rental
Families renting cars in New York City can rent the right car seat for their child and vehicle. Kid Car Seat Check is available for parents that would like to learn the proper installation of the car seat. There is a 2 day minimum for all car seat rentals and seats must be returned in the same condition to avoid cleaning fees.
Kid Car Seat Delivery
Kid Car NY will deliver and pick up your car seat if you live in a doorman building or are staying in a hotel where you can drop off the car seat with the concierge. Please understand that regardless of who you leave the car seat with, you are responsible for the seat until a Kid Car NY representative picks it up.
