You have the right to cancel your reservation subject to our cancellation policy.
Chauffeurs DO NOT have the authority to alter the booked times, pick up or destination addresses or routes without the prior consent of our fleet manager.
To ensure the dependability of our service, it is necessary to reserve and dispatch a specific car and chauffeur to meet each Client. It is therefore necessary to charge for the service (as a hotel must charge for a guaranteed room) in the event the passenger is a "no show".
You can avoid the "no show" charge by giving us a call before the chauffeur is dispatched. International bookings require 24 hours’ notice prior to the booked time. A “no-show” will be charged the total amount of the confirmed fee if you do not “present” at the nominated time and place.
We will always endeavour to accommodate Clients who require excess time with our vehicles. Within reason and where possible, the vehicle will be made available to you for as long as possible after the specified period of your reservation.
Any waiting/over time will be charged in 5-minute increments at the appropriate rate for the vehicle nominated.
We will make every effort to arrive at your collection and destination locations on time. However, occasionally allowances must be made for unforeseen circumstances such as traffic, road and weather conditions, illness, vehicle breakdown etc.
We cannot assume responsibility for circumstances beyond our control. Should there be a vehicle breakdown or mishap rendering the reserved vehicle out of commission, we reserve the right to substitute a vehicle/vehicles. We will make every effort to supply an alternate vehicle and advise you prior to pick up.
Should we be unable to provide an alternate vehicle, a pro-rata refund may be paid. No guarantee can be made that we will supply an identical vehicle.
Our Insurance policies cover our passengers whilst inside our vehicle/s and en route only.
