How can we help?

1- Profile

Install the VIPGo app for iOS or Android.

The first time you open the app you will be asked for your mobile number and email address. This is so you can receive journey information and other useful notifications.

Next, link your credit card. Use the camera on your device to scan your card, or enter the details manually.

If you ever log out of your profile, you will need to request a code to log back in. This code will be texted to the relevant phone number.

You can change your name, phone number and email address at any time. Open the main menu by tapping the icon on the top left. Select View Profile then Edit.
You can also add your most frequent destination addresses – home and work for example – making it faster and easier to book a journey.

Your payment and financial data are completely secure as certified by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). VIPGo does not store or record your credit card information.

If you receive a message stating that Your VIPGo account has been suspended, it means the VIPGo security team has spotted irregular activity on your account and deactivated it to protect you from any fraudulent use. If this happens, please contact customer support.

Providing your email address allows you to receive emails containing journey details as well as confirmation of advance bookings, cancellations, refunds, support contacts etc. You will also receive occasional updates about the latest news and exclusive offers. You can unsubscribe at any time by tapping Unsubscribe at the bottom of any email.

When you book a journey, you will also receive the details of your chauffeur, contact number and the vehicle’s number plate. You will receive these details via push notifications.

To receive push notifications, simply allow this option when you open the app for the first time. You can also activate and deactivate them in your device settings under Notifications.

Your privacy is protected at all times and your personal information is never shared with any third party.

2- Payment

You can pay for journeys with a credit card, corporate credit card, or Apple Pay. Chauffeurs do not accept cash.

To link a credit card to your account, open the menu at the top left of the VIPGo app, tap Payment and then Add Card.

Type in your card details, or use the camera to scan your card.

Apple Pay and corporate accounts are added automatically. If you wish to use a corporate credit card, your profile must contain your work email address.

Whenever you link a new credit card, your account will be charged £1 – equivalent to the minimum fare. This anti-fraud measure verifies that your card is active and you will receive an immediate refund.

You can only change your preferred payment method when requesting a journey.

You will see an icon showing your current payment method displayed at the bottom of the screen.

Tap the icon to choose a different payment option, which will then become your default.

Yes you can. Once you have requested a journey, open the menu in your active booking, tap Edit and select the tip amount as a percentage of your final fare.

Simply open the app menu, tap Ride History and select the relevant journey. VIPGo also emails a receipt for every journey to the address used in your profile.

Before you confirm the booking, you’ll be able to see an estimated cost of your journey upfront. This feature is available in all cities except Moscow.

In Moscow, you can calculate your approximate fare manually. On the Cities and Fares page on our website, select your desired service level and enter your pickup and drop-off locations to see the route. After that, you’ll be able to calculate the fare based on distance and standard prices. Fares are calculated based on distance, time and base fare. Every service level has a specific minimum fare.

Fares for pickup points outside the city boundaries are based on a set out-of-city tariff. Base fare, price per mile, and minimum fare all differ from those of the regular city tariff. Please check Cities and Fares for the official city boundaries and fares.

To unlink a card from your account, open the menu at the top left of the VIPGo app, tap Payment, select the relevant card, then tap Remove.

No, any parking charges and tolls will be added separately to your final fare.

3- Payment issues

Any issues with linking a specific credit card to your account may be down to security. Credit cards must meet the following requirements:

Card number and cardholder name must be embossed, not printed.
Your card level must be Standard, Classic, or above. VIPGo does not accept Electron or Momentum cards.
The card must be issued in the same country as that of your mobile phone number.

Please contact our customer support team. VIPGo fares are calculated automatically: if the fare is incorrect, you will be fully reimbursed.

The most likely reason is that your bank requires you to enter the CVC/CVV code for each separate online transaction. Please contact your bank to remove this restriction.

We were unable to charge the card linked to your account, which may have been due to insufficient funds on your card. Please try again or use a different card.

4- Booking

Open the VIPGo app, select your service level and enter your pickup address.

In most cases your location will be automatically identified, but you can also enter the address manually or drop a pin onto the map.

Then enter your destination.

Confirm the booking by tapping Request Now or scheduling it in advance by tapping the clock icon on the right.

You will then receive the….  and of your chauffeur and the vehicles registration number in the app and as an SMS or push notification.

For advance bookings, you will receive the details 20 minutes or so before your scheduled pickup time.

You will see the waiting time when you open the app to request a journey. This is based on the distance between you and the nearest available chauffeur as well as current traffic conditions.

The number of available chauffeurs is always higher in city centres and popular locations such as airports, train stations, hotels, and business centres. Waiting times may be longer out-of-town.

Open the app, select your service level, and enter your pickup point and destination.

Tap the Schedule a Journey button to select the date and time.

Tap Confirm Booking.

You will then receive chauffeur and vehicle details by push notification around 20 minutes before your journey.

The passenger will receive an SMS with the journey details, the chauffeur’s contact details, and the vehicle’s registration.

Yes. Open the app and request a journey as usual, entering the name of the city in the pickup search box.

Many cities have streets with identical or very similar names, so entering the city first will help to avoid any confusion.

You can use the Comments box to add any specific instructions you may have for your chauffeur.

For example, if you’re not sure the pin on the map marks your exact pickup point clearly enough, use Comments to add additional details.

If you live in a gated community, you can let your chauffeur know a contact number to call a security guard in advance of arrival.

If you cancel a journey within 5 minutes of booking it is free of charge.
If you cancel any later or after your chauffeur has arrived, you will be charged a cancellation fee based on the service level requested. See Cities and Fares for more details.

VIPGo does offer the option to request black cars only. Open the app menu at the top left, select View Profile and then the Black Cars Only button. Please note that enabling this option may increase waiting times.

5- Services

VIPGo is available in London, Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Perm, Yekaterinburg, and Krasnodar.

Yes, VIPGo offers fixed-fare transfers to and from the airport. You can find out the exact fare for different cities and service levels on the Cities and Fares page or in the app.

You can request your transfer from the airport as soon as you land,  although pre-booking will minimise waiting time.

Enter your flight number in the Comments box when making your booking to allow your chauffeur to track your plane.

Your chauffeur will wait for 30 minutes free of charge from the landing time (advance bookings) or from when you make your booking (on-demand). Please keep this in mind as delays may occur at border control and baggage reclaim.

If required, your chauffeur can meet you in arrivals holding a name-board: simply add this Meet and Greet request to Comments when booking as well as the name you’d like displayed. Otherwise please send him or her a message stating your preferred meeting point.

In London, the fixed fare depends on the borough you’re travelling to or from.
In Krasnodar, the airport is situated within the city’s official boundaries and so fares are based on the standard tariff.

VIPGo Plus allows you to book a spacious Mercedes-Benz V-Class people carrier for five or more passengers. Available in London, Moscow and Sochi, VIPGo Plus is ideal for a weekend trip to the country, taking guests to a wedding party, or transporting staff to an offsite meeting.

Yes, depending on your city. VIPGo offers a Designated driver service in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, and Kazan.

When booking, select the Designated driver service level then specify your pickup location and destination. As with regular bookings, you can add a comment or book your chauffeur in advance.

All VIPGo cars are equipped with iPhone chargers. VIP and Plus also offer bottled water. If it’s raining, you can ask your chauffeur to meet you at the door with an umbrella using the Comments box. Please note: your chauffeur will not be able to meet you at the door if parking is prohibited.

Our passengers value a clean, fresh interior and so smoking is not permitted in any VIPGo vehicle. If you do smoke inside the car, please note that you will have to pay for the interior to be cleaned.

You are welcome to travel with your pet, but please adhere to the following guidance:

Dogs of any size must be muzzled and kept on a leash. The seat should also be covered with a blanket or a towel to protect it from dirt, as well as protect future passengers who may be allergic to dog hair. Lap dogs don’t require a muzzle, but should be kept on your lap.

Chauffeurs are legally obliged to transport assistance dogs without any restrictions and at no additional fee.

Small animals like cats, rabbits or reptiles should travel in special carriers or cages fitted with an absorbent pad or liner.

A crate with a waterproof bottom or a special rubber-impregnated carrier bag is recommended for cats.
Birds should be transported in a cage with a lined bottom.
At no time should pets be allowed to move freely inside the car.

Once a journey has been requested, passengers are required to inform VIPGo that they will be travelling with a pet or animal. This needs to occur before the chauffeur arrives to carry out the journey.

VIPGo cars are not fitted with any special equipment. Your chauffeur will be happy to assist you with getting in and out of the car, folding your wheelchair and lifting it into and out of the boot.

VIPGo passengers in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg, Kazan, Perm, Sochi and London are all insured for the duration of the journey. Insurance covers every passenger, not just the one who booked.

VIPGo offers discerning transportation for civilised passengers and so operates a zero-tolerance approach to the following activities:
Consuming food
Spilling liquids
Distracting the chauffeur
Abusing chauffeurs
Endangering yourself and others

In the extremely rare occurrence that a passenger’s actions result in any damage to or staining of the vehicle’s interior, they will be charged for the cost of dry-cleaning and any other necessary repairs due to actions that.

VIPGo does not currently provide child seats in London. By law, children under the age of 3 can travel without a car seat or seat belt if sat on an accompanying adult’s knee in the rear. Children aged 3 years and older can travel without a car seat if they wear a standard seatbelt.

7- Issues during the journey

If you forget an item in the car, don’t worry: your chauffeur will bring it to the VIPGo offices. Get in touch with the customer support service with the journey number shown on your receipt or your phone number. We will then arrange to return your property as soon as possible.

If you notice immediately after your vehicle has departed, call or text your chauffeur directly on the number specified in your journey notifications.

VIPGo never stops looking for ways to improve – and your feedback plays a valuable part in this. Please always rate your chauffeur and, should something go wrong, also write a review to let the VIPGo customer support team know about it. They will do their best to remedy the situation.

If you experience an issue that you feel threatens your safety in any way, please contact the VIPGo customer support team immediately.
