Should you wish to change these or any other details, this must be done by email at least 72 hours prior to the date of travel (inbound or outbound). Significant changes in destination or pickup addresses may constitute a route alteration which is covered in section 4 - "Route Alterations".

If the new trip price is greater than the original amount charged, you will be required to pay the additional cost before the alteration can be confirmed.

All trip prices are for "direct" trips with one pickup and one drop-off point and assume that you are on time for your trip pickup. Our transportation partners reserve the right to charge additional fees which are payable directly to your driver. If you have any questions please ask your driver. All additional charges will be reasonable and are at the sole discretion of the transportation partner. Additional fees may be charged for:

  • Late departures that are within your control (not including late or cancelled flights).
  • Additional stops en route
  • Additional pickups
  • Non-essential route alterations
  • Additional drop-offs

Each guest is allowed a base amount of 1 checked luggage and a 'carry on' bag. Some services may allow additional items. 

Any additional luggage and sporting equipment (e.g. snowboards, skis, golf clubs, bicycles etc.) must be declared upon booking and may be subject to an additional charge. 

For the safety of our contracted team members, the weight limit for individual checked items (including sporting equipment) is limited to a maximum of 32 kg. For abnormally heavy or large items, please discuss your needs with our team prior to booking. We will accommodate your requirements whenever possible. 

All luggage should be labeled with the owners name and destination. If any luggage arrives undeclared, the driver reserves to right to refuse transfer or to charge additional fees for transport of said luggage.

Please refer to the information provided on individual service pages for further information.

 

7. Conditions of Transport

Ridebooker reserves the right (and delegates to its contracted drivers and appointed agents) the right to refuse to carry any person who is thought to be under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs and/or whose behaviour is considered to pose a threat to the driver, the vehicle or the other passenger(s).

Ridebooker will endeavor to ensure that all transfers arrive at the agreed upon time. Ridebooker will not incur any liability whatsoever in the event of any delay due to causes beyond its control. Vehicles are fully insured for passenger and third party claims, as required under local law by the primary transportation provider. Ridebooker can not accept any liability whatsoever for accidents or injuries during any portion of any transfer. Customers' property is carried entirely at their own risk and no responsibility can be accepted for loss or damage. All liability is assumed by the primary transportation provider.

Circumstances beyond the control of Ridebooker and contracted companies may prevent the timely delivery of guests to their destinations. Anything beyond the control of Ridebooker that interrupts or stops any transfer does not in any way result in any liability for Ridebooker.

The following are examples of circumstances which are not within our control:

  • Missed flights due to transportation delays (flight insurance is highly recommended)
  • Accidents causing delays to the vehicle
  • Exceptional or severe weather conditions including snow or flood.
  • Compliance with requests of the police
  • Deaths and accidents on the road
  • Vandalism and terrorism
  • Unforeseen traffic delays 
  • Industrial action by third parties 
  • Problems caused by other customers
  • Other circumstances affecting passenger safety 
  • Bookings that have been made showing incorrect details of dates, flight times etc. 
  • This list is not exhaustive

If, for reasons within their control, Ridebooker fails in delivery of passengers to their confirmed destination, the company will provide suitable transport such as another coach, private car, taxi etc.

Ridebooker shall only be liable for any reasonable and foreseeable consequential losses arising directly out of a breach in contract. In such cases our liability shall be limited to $500.00 per booking. 

Ridebooker reserves the right at any time to assign any part of this Agreement (or all of it) to any associated or subcontracted company or to any third party.

It is the customer's responsibility to report any problems with his/her transfer in a timely manner so that Ridebooker has the reasonable opportunity to address and correct the problem. It is the customer's obligation to do all in his/her power to mitigate any loss. 

These Conditions of Transport and any transportation which we agree to provide you (in respect of yourself and/or your baggage) shall be governed by the laws of the country in which the transfer occurs or is planned to occur. Ridebooker and its associated and contracted companies agree to operate within the rules and regulations of transportation for the district(s) in which the transport takes place.

 

8. Infants Under 2 Years Old

Unless otherwise noted, children under 2 years of age are counted as passengers and must have a seat reserved in advance of travel. 

Car seat requirements depend on the vehicle type. We will endeavor to provide child seats where required, but these must be reserved in advance of travel. Please refer to the FAQ section of your specific route for information on car seat availability.

 

9. Service Dogs and Emotional Support Animals

Certified, professionally trained service animals which are assisting customers with disabilities are carried, free of charge, in the vehicle at the customer's feet. The animal must be certified as having been trained to assist a person with a disability by a professional service animal institution.

If you wish to travel with a service animal:

  • We recommend that your service animal be harnessed at all times. If it is not harnessed, we strongly recommend that it be held on a leash when it is not in its kennel. 
  • As evidence that the animal you are travelling with is a professionally trained service animal, you may present an identification card or other written document, carry tags or a harness for your animal, or provide credible verbal assurance.
