In the event of non-compliance with these Terms and Conditions, we shall not be solely liable as a Transportation Company for any loss or damage that may be related to our negligence of these Terms on the basis of evidence. Losses or damages for which we are responsible can not exceed the amount you paid for the transfer. We are in no way responsible for so-called consequential damages or losses that have occurred unexpectedly. We are also not responsible for any disruption that can not be directly related to our services. We believe, but are not limited to, accidents, administrative requirements, force majeure and legal restrictions.
For any incident occurring during the delivery of our transportation service, we can not be held responsible if any negligence on our part can not be established. Incidents include, but are not limited to, illness, death or any physical injury. There is liability on our part if the incident occurs due to negligence on our part of the fact that, for example, the Transport Service has not been delivered as agreed and specified in the reservation and the Contract that you have concluded with us. If this is the case, however, it is the responsibility of the Client to prove with the necessary proof that we have failed in our services and that because of this negligence we have caused or facilitated the incident such as death or bodily injury. Only then can a claim against us as a transport company be brought.
We are solely responsible for the actions of our employees and Transportation Companies who work for us if they were working for our Transportation Service when they did or if they were performing work on behalf of our Transportation Company. We try to ensure the accuracy of our website day after day. However, we can not be held responsible for the 100% accuracy and reliability of the content of our website. Unforeseen circumstances such as viruses, for example, can influence this accuracy. In these cases, we will do our utmost to correct the content as soon as possible where necessary. Unforeseen circumstances that result in changes in the price of our services allow us to terminate a contract with a Customer without having to reimburse the Customer for this.
RESERVATION ADDITIONAL INTERMEDIATE STOP
In some cases, making a stopover when using our transportation service is a customer wish, for example to take extra people. These additional stops can and must be indicated when booking online. In this case, it is important that the final destination be the same for all passengers. In addition, the duration of a stopover must not exceed 5 minutes maximum or 10 km beyond that we can claim the price of a normal race.
In the event of force majeure, we are not responsible for the payment of compensation for services that we provide as a Transportation Company and that can not or not fully be provided due to such force majeure. Cases of force majeure or other that do not fall within our judicial power include, but are not limited to, illness, war or danger of war, civil war and riot, attacks, sabotage, power outages, floods, earthquakes, fires, occupations, strikes, exclusion of workers, modification of government measures, transportation problems, and other disruptions in our business.

This e-mail serves as proof of the declaration of these changes. The same rules apply to all other information sent by e-mail. It is therefore crucial that the email address provided is correct and reliable so that you receive all the information correctly. In addition, it is essential that you read and understand all information received from us. If, for any reason, you are not present or not on time at the agreed time at the agreed pickup location as shown on your coupon, our Customer Service will attempt to contact you via the mobile phone that you provided when booking. Since the airport shuttle is shared we won’t be able to wait in case of delays. In this case you can contact us and request to change the time of your pick up depending on our availability.
The Transportation Services category includes various forms of transportation that we can carry out in cooperation with Transportation Companies.
Transportation Services within our offer are shared transfers. We do not guarantee the route to or from the chosen destination. On our website, a Google itinerary will be displayed, but this is purely informational and may differ from the actual route of the transport. We always try to be punctual, but we can not guarantee 100% to be there at the right time. In some cases, the Customer can not immediately locate the driver of the Transportation Company. In this case, it is the responsibility of the customer to contact our customer service via the number indicated on the voucher.
RIGHT OF ACCESS / BEHAVIOR OF THE USER
Any customer who enters into a contract with our Transportation Company tacitly grants us the right to deny access to our vehicles to certain persons if the driver of the vehicle determines that the person in question is under the influence of drugs or alcohol or whether the person in question is or may become a danger to the person, the driver of the vehicle or other passengers. In addition, the consumption of alcoholic beverages and / or the use of drugs and narcotics is prohibited in all our vehicles. Smoking and eating are also prohibited in our vehicles.
TREATMENT OF COMPLAINTS
It can always happen that our services offered do not meet your expectations. In this case, we always advise our customers to contact our customer service as soon as possible so that the claim can be handled immediately, preferably at the time or shortly after the claim has taken place. We can not process claims that are reported to our customer service after the actual transfer service has taken place because, in this case, we can no longer correct the complaint or otherwise resolve the complaint. A complaint can always be submitted via the contact details you can find on the voucher for your transfer service.
