These Terms and Conditions apply to any cars hired from our Company Websites.
The Agreed Price is the price to be paid for the journey as agreed with the client. The times, route and other details of the journey are stipulated on the Booking Confirmation. Any requests to modify any of these details should be made to us at least a week in advance of the date of travel and we will endeavour to accommodate minor changes to the client's requirement, subject to our ability to do so. All bookings will be allowed one amendment. Any further changes will result in a £15.00 amendment fee.
We will endeavour to provide the vehicle requested by you. In the unlikely event that we are unable to do so we reserve the right to provide a substitute vehicle of similar type and capacity. We can request a preferred vehicle colour for you but cannot guarantee a colour.
We offer a range of hire options, including a pick-up and return service, a one-way service and a continual hire service. Unless you have opted for a continual hire agreement, other customers may have hired the vehicle before or after the outward or homeward bound legs of your journey. The inside of the car will be cleaned and replenished as necessary between these hires.
All bookings are confirmed by the payment in advance of a non-refundable deposit.
The balance due is the amount outstanding net of any deposit paid. The balance is due for payment two weeks before the date of hire ( excluding Sporting events when the balance is due for payment one month before eg. Royal Ascot, Epsom Derby, etc) and will automatically be debited from your credit or debit card. The agreed payment method appears on the booking confirmation. Any exceptions to this policy will appear on the booking confirmation and will have been discussed at the time of booking.
The hire agreement between us includes specified pick up and return times and/or duration of hire. Adhering to these times forms an integral part of our operation. Where these times are not adhered to, we may incur additional cost or risk disappointing other customers. For that reason, we reserve the right to levy additional charges should the times agreed between us not be adhered to by the customer. The overtime rate that will be charged is as specified below. Rates are for each hour or part thereof.
All Vehicles Overtime Rate Per hour £100.00
Payment of all overtime charges must be settled before the end of the hire. We do not accept cheques, debit cards, credit cards or foreign currency as payment on the day of hire. In the event that payment of overtime charges cannot be made on the day of hire, the customer agrees that the amounts will be charged to the credit or debit card with which the booking deposit was paid. Credit card payments are subject to a 5% surcharge on the transaction amount.
We reserve the right to charge the customer a minimum of £100 for any damage to or soiling of the limousine or any of its equipment caused by you or members of your party. Payment of the minimum damage charge must be settled before the end of the hire. We do not accept cheques, debit cards, credit cards or foreign currency as payment on the day of hire. In the event that payment of damage-related charges cannot be made on the day of hire, the customer agrees that the amounts will be charged to the credit or debit card with which the booking deposit was paid. Credit card payments are subject to a 5% surcharge on the transaction amount. Where the cost of rectification or repair may, in the view of the driver, exceed £100, the minimum charge will be made by the method described above and a further amount invoiced to the customer to reflect the cost of restoring the vehicle to its previous condition.
Cancellation of Booking
In the unlikely event of a cancellation, your deposit is non-refundable. Full payment will be due if a confirmed booking is cancelled two weeks prior to the date of the booking.
* please note: All bookings are confirmed by a NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT
The above excludes any major sporting event where the balance is payable if a cancellation occurs 1 month before the date of hire.
Full flight details help us to give you punctual service. We will make reasonable attempts to monitor incoming flight times, but we are unable to access reliable information until shortly before scheduled arrival times. If your return flight is going to be delayed, you should contact us by phone (24-hours notice) to notify us, so that we can adjust our schedules and rearrange drivers. We will endeavour to accommodate delayed flight times, but cannot be held liable should circumstances prevent us from being able to respond to changes. In the event that we are reasonably notified of delays, we reserve the right to make additional charges for subsequent collection. Increased airport security means that we are unable to offer a full 'meet and greet' service at most UK airports.
Unfortunately, we are unable to take responsibility for the loss of property left in the vehicle at any time or under any circumstances.
Our fleet of vehicles are maintained to a high standard. In the unlikely event of breakdown or the car being rendered unserviceable (for example, in the event of collision), we will use our best endeavours to provide a back-up vehicle or vehicles as quickly as possible. However, we cannot be held liable for any consequential loss incurred as a result of vehicle breakdown or similar unavailability.
We always strive to arrive at pick-up points in advance of the times agreed. Very occasionally, events outside our control (for example, traffic congestion or bad weather) cause us to be late. In these circumstances, provided we arrive within 30 minutes of the scheduled time, this will be deemed to be within the terms of the agreement, in such cases, and if reasonably practical, we will endeavour to adjust the agreed booking times to make up for the delay, for example by adding a similar time at the end of the booking period.
