As Lisbon City Transfers act as booking platform for the individual elements of your holiday and as customers you are required to agree to the Terms & Conditions at the time of booking.
We require that all passengers are adequately insured before travelling. The latter is usually a prerequisite for most tour operators, who reserve the right to deny travel when proof of insurance cannot be provided. By entering into contract with Lisbon City Transfers you accept that an adequate insurance policy is in place for all passenger and luggage travelling.
At the time of booking it is the customer’s responsibility to advise us of any special requests such as child car seat or mobility requirements for transfers. Please note however, these cannot be guaranteed. Parents should always bring their own children seats as these are often not available or required by law at the destination.
Child Seats – The EU directive 2003/20/EC states that children must use an appropriate child seat until they reach the age of 12 years or until they reach a height of 135 cm. However for licensed taxis there is an exemption. If no child seat is available, children of 3 years of age or over may travel as long as they wear an adult seat belt. Children under 3 years of age may be transported without a seat belt or safety harness as long as they travel in the rear of the vehicle.
Wheelchairs – Any passengers travelling with a wheelchair must advise us at the time of booking, this is to ensure that the correct vehicle is available to meet your specific requirements. We will need to be informed if wheelchairs are folding, manual or include a battery and/or motor. This policy also applies to scooters.
We hope your travel arrangements run as smoothly as possible and that you will enjoy your holiday. However, if you have a complaint while you are in Lisbont, you must first report it immediately to the administration team of Lisbon City Transfers. If the problem cannot be resolved on the spot you should make a written complaint to Lisbon City Transfers within 14 days of returning home. Please note that you should allow 28 days so that all issues raised can be concluded and resolved.
If you incur any out of pocket expenses when in Lisbon, you must obtain and keep any receipts detailing each cost. Failure to send in receipts as part of a complaint may waiver your right to claim back any monies owed.
Excess Luggage, Behaviour & Liability
If you are carrying any excess luggage such as more than 1 bag per person, surf boards, golf clubs, bicycles, but not limited to, or other oversized items, you will need to inform us when booking to ensure our suppliers can provide the correct vehicle. Should you fail to notify us, you will be liable for any additional costs incurred.
Our suppliers reserve the right to terminate the transfer if you or your party’s behaviour or conduct is disruptive towards the driver or other passengers. Neither us or the suppliers will accept any liability for any extra costs incurred. Passengers are forbidden to consume alcoholic drinks on any transfer. Any costs incurred by you or your party due to damages on a transfer must be paid by your or your party at your destination and us or the supplier will not be liable for these costs.
As we are acting, only as a booking platform we have no liability for any of the transfer arrangements, and in particular no liability for any illness, personal injury, death or loss of any kind. Any claim for damages for injury, illness or death arising from your use of the booking platform, must be brought against the operator of the transfer services and will be under the jurisdiction of the law of the country in which the transfer is being provided.
We will not make compensation payments for any cancellation/changes caused as a result ‘force majeure’. Force Majeure means any inability by us to perform our contractual obligations resulting from any cause or reason whatsoever beyond our reasonable control. This includes, but is not limited, to acts of war (whether war is declared or not), the threat of war, riots, civil disturbances, industrial disputes, terrorist activity, natural disasters, fire, inclement weather, technical problems to transport, airline failure, closure or disruption to airspace or airport.
