Are your rates hourly, and , if so, is there a minimum?
No, our rates are FLAT. There is no minimum, up to 7 hour maximum, and no extra charges for the basic service.
    Up to 100 miles are included. Additional mileage over that will result in a time/distance/gas surcharge, depending on the distance calculated ahead of time.
What's included in your prices?
Our prices include :



Do you use Limousines?
No, our service uses only vans. We think the expense of a limo is something that not everyone wants to incur. There are some really fine limo services out there, but our prices are only a fraction of what they must charge, to cover all the overhead associated with limos.


I was planning a Bachelorette party, but I've not done one in a while. Can you help me with ideas, etc?
Sure, we can. That's our specialty. We've done well over a thousand of these since we started in 1996. We know all the latest things that work, and those that don't work so well. You're not going to be able to find this kind of experience anywhere. No matter if it's what to wear (a veil, tiera, shirts with ???,etc.), where to go, where to shop for party favors, what to bring, or whatever, Girls' Night Out has seen it all and has the best way to do it. Planning assistance is a service we provide free to all our customers.


We are having a Bachelorette party, and we are thinking of what to make the bride wear. Do you have any suggestions?
We sure do! We'll recommend the right attire, based on who the party's for, and where we're going, etc. GNO can even assist you with making veils, t-shirts, etc, for the Bachelorette.


We need some ideas for "tasks" that we want to make the bride do on a Bachelorette party .Do you have any ideas? She's not going to do anything really naughty.
No problem! GNO has you covered. We have all kinds of task lists, games, scavenger hunts, etc. All with varying levels of difficulty, risque' factor, etc. Plus some suggested links for non-GNO party games.

GNO maintains connections with the best clubs, bars, and promoters in the city. We know which bars/clubs are popular, when's the best time to go to them, who to see inside, etc. We can help you put togethter an itinerary that'll work, or, if you want, we can do the whole thing for you. Either way, you'll have a great party, guaranteed.
NOTE : We do not send out lists of which clubs we have deals with. We do go over this on the phone with customers that have RSVP'd with us.


Rather than a "Girl's Night Out" , but we were thinking of planning a Winery Tour. Would your service be able to help?
Absolutely! We have a terrific reputation at the Northern Virginia wineries, and are often referred by wineries. We can help you put together a route, plan lunch, etc.


We want to go to the beach for a night of partying. Is that too far for your service?
It depends. It's been our experience that the ride home is a tad too long for ladies that have been drinking at the Cork, Waterfront, Starboard, etc. all night, but we're certainly available for that. Prices would be substantially higher, based on the mileage. But we'd be able to give you an EXACT rate beforehand.


We were thinking of having your service do the Bachelorette party for a friend of ours. We have several ideas, one of which is a male dancer. Do you know of anywhere we could do that, and do you have any connections?
We do, in fact, have a connection with a local company that provides an exclusive discount to GNO parties. And, yes, we have connections at several clubs that will let our parties do this at their clubs. Note that the company we have an exclusive deal with is one of the top-rated services in the area. They in turn work exclusively with GNO. Call/Email for details.


Do you go to any clubs with male entertainment?
We would, if that's where the ladies wanted to go. There aren't a lot of club options for male entertainment in this area, but we'll help however we can


We were thinking of using your service for a birthday party for one of our friends. She loves this one little breakfast place in Arlington. Would we have to pay extra to get our party taken there afterwards?
A trip to Bob and Edith's could be extra, and at the discretion of your driver. We don't require our drivers to be out past 03:00, so best to plan ahead, ask your driver to leave early, so we beat the crowd. Best to leave DC before 2:00 to do this.


Can you recommend a place we can go to get some stuff for the Bachelorette party we booked with you? We just want some funny things to make the bride wear, etc.
Certainly! GNO has a few places that we know of where our parties have shopped before.We have a discount agreement with a local retail store that has adult/bachelorette novelty items (locations in Tysons Corner & Bethesda) but you must get a coupon from us to get the discount. They have great selection, and a friendly, helpful staff...


Do you have any special deals with places where we could meet for dinner first?
Absolutely! We have a few places that work with us. Call or email with more details about when ,how many, etc., and we'll tell you what is available. This takes a little more notice and planning, so let us know asap.


Do your prices include rides home? If so, is there a limit for both distance & number of stops?
GNO never wants to let our customers drive after they've been out drinking all night! However, we generally limit the stops to 3, they MUST be in "logical progression" (this means "on the way" to the pickup location/last drop off) and they MUST be pre-arranged/pre-approved! Requests for additional drop-offs not pre-arranged/pre-approved are at the discretion of the driver as to whether he can do them, and if it'll cost extra.


Are we expected to tip your drivers?
Our drivers are much more than just cab drivers... They are expected to accompany the party to all stops, make sure that everyone is having fun, take pictures, introduce you to friendly bartenders, and keep the party moving when there are other places left to visit... When it comes to tips, the industry standard is generally listed in Tipping Etiquette sites as 20% (try Google-ing "tipping etiquette")... We like to think our drivers are always worth at least the industry standard. If your group doesn't feel the service warranted that, please contact us with any concerns!
