Hire Quotations

All quotations are given subject to the company having available a suitable vehicle at the time the Hire accepts the quotation.  Quotations are valid for 28 days unless otherwise stated.  No VAT is chargeable.  A deposit for the hire of the taxi will vary, dependent on the total cost of the booking.  This is payable within 10 days of the date of the booking.  The final balance is then due 28 days before the date of hire, unless the company has otherwise agreed in writing to vary this condition.  If payment is not received in accordance with the agreed terms, the company reserves the right to cancel the contract and levy the appropriate charge in accordance with the confirmation of booking. - On receipt of the deposit (or full payment if within 28 days of hire), the company will issue an email of confirmation, which will include the agreed details of the hire and initiate the contract with the Hirer.  The Hirer should check this on receipt, and immediately notify the company of any error or required variation.  No booking should be regarded as confirmed prior to receipt of this email.


Cancellation by Hirer

If cancelation is made prior to the 28 days before the date of hire, 100% of monies paid will be returned, less the deposit.

If cancelation is made after the 28 days prior to the date of hire, 50% of monies paid, less the deposit will be returned to the hirer.

If cancelation is made after the 48 hours prior to departure, 0% of monies paid or deposit will be returned to the Hirer.


Cancellation by the Company

Unforeseen circumstances which prevent the operation of the hire, the company may return all monies paid and without further liability, cancel the contract.  However, the company will make all reasonable efforts to fulfil the hire using alternative vehicle(s) or operative(s), in consultation with the hirer where possible.

Only Guide or Assistance dogs will be carried on any of our vehicles.
