"Ok, we got a high class fare needs picking up from Starfish Island - any takers?"

V.I.P. is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to the protagonist Tommy Vercetti by dispatcher Delores from Kaufman Cabs in Little Havana, Vice City. It is unlocked after the purchase of Kaufman Cabs.



A V.I.P. customer has asked for a ride to Escobar International Airport from his mansion in Starfish Island. So climb into a cab and give him a ride.

The Mission

Once you get on the cab that starts the mission, you will be told you have one minute to get to Starfish Island and pick up a V.I.P. customer to take him to the airport. Make a quick drive to his mansion, (but try not to damage your cab since you'll need it in a good state for later). When you arrive to Starfish, park on the purple marker and sound the horn. The V.I.P. will get out of his house, but suddenly, a driver from VC Cabs will arrive and steal your fare, now you have to get it back! Here there are two choices on how to do this, those are:

In the first method, you will have to ram and drive-by the other cab until the V.I.P. gets scared and limbs onto your cab, now you have to take a drive to the airport, since the other driver will attack you to get the passenger back, make it to the airport and drop off the V.I.P.

The other choice is to kill the VC driver immediately. As soon as the VC Cab steals your fare, get out of the cab, pull out an assault rifle and shoot at the VC Cabs tires so it crashes, when he's crashed, hurry to the cab and kill the driver, then the V.I.P. will get out. Get inside your cab and pick him up, then drive him to the airport at your own pace, then drop him off.

After dropping off the passenger in the airport, the mission is complete.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Pick up the V.I.P. on Starfish Island
  • Sound the horn
  • Get the V.I.P. back! Take the other car out
  • Take the V.I.P. to the airport
