If the hirer is not going to travel with the party, a representative must be chosen, and the company informed prior to the hire taking place.  The company will only accept instructions from the hirer or their nominated representative.     Where a copy of these conditions has been given to the hirer at any time, or the hirer has been advised verbally of all significant terms, making a booking will be deemed to signify acceptance of them.  Where a hirer makes a booking before receiving these conditions and without being advised verbally of all significant terms, the hirer may cancel the contract with liability to the operator within 48 hours of receiving these conditions.   Otherwise, the hirer will be deemed to accept these conditions.

Where the company agrees to act as an organiser or retailer, it will issue separate conditions of trading relating to its liabilities and responsibilities under the Regulations.


16)  Passengers’ Property

a) All vehicles hired by the company are subject to restrictions on carrying luggage for statutory safety reasons.   The hirer accepts that the driver shall be the sole judge as to whether and to what extent passengers’ property is carried.   Large bulky items may not be able to be carried, and the hirer should take all steps to notify the company in advance of such requirements

b) The company accepts any personal property of the hirer and their passengers on the understanding that it will take all reasonable steps to avoid loss or damage.   The hirer should notify the company or the driver if items of exceptional value are to be carried on the vehicle.   It is the hirer’s responsibility to minimise the risk of loss when property is left unattended by not leaving valuables on the coach.

c) The Company’s liability for loss and damage to property, however caused, is limited to £500 per bag, case or package with an overall limit of £1000 (overall claim value) maximum per passenger.   It is the responsibility of the hirer to ensure that items over this value are insured separately for loss and damage.

d)   The limits in this section do not apply to personal injury claims.

e)   All articles of lost property recovered from the vehicle will be held at the company’s Brunel Business Park premises and will be subject to the current Public Service Vehicle (Lost Property) Regulations.   The company will provide details of this legislation on request.

b)   Where the hire is to a sporting event, the hirer should be aware of the legal requirements relating to alcohol, contained in the Sporting Events (Control of Alcohol) Act 1985, (as amended) and the conditions of entry to race courses as laid down by the Race Course Association Ltd.   The company will provide details of these restrictions on request.


18) Complaints

In the event of complaint about the company’s services, the hirer should endeavour to seek a solution at the time by seeking assistance from the driver or from the company.  If this has not provided a remedy, complaints should be submitted in writing within 14 days of the termination date of the hire.  The company will acknowledge all complaints within 14 days and will normally reply fully within 28 days.

No bill, poster or notice is to be displayed on any vehicle without the written consent of the company.
