Changes to bookings are generally treated as new booking journey confirmation. The policy for dealing with cancellations, therefore, apply to the booking ride originally agreed upon.

Any alterations/ changes with a very short notice made to the original bookings will be at discretion of VLC booking handlers to accept the change, In situations where this is not possible the booking will be fully charged according to the VLC terms and conditions.
In case of a No-show without cancellation, the User loses their entitlement to carriage over the affiliate, however, this does not affect the compensation claim of VLC towards the User.
A booking ride is considered a no-show if the User, or passenger, has not shown up without cancellation within 30 minutes after the agreed pickup time at the agreed pickup location. If a customer does not show up, the booking ride must be paid for in full, whereas possible surcharges for waiting time do not apply.

If a customer does not show up, up until 90 minutes of landing the booking ride must be paid for in full, whereas possible surcharges for waiting time do not apply. If the passenger shows up during this period only waiting time must be paid accordingly with the additional car parking at cost In case of any delays when you arrive at the airport due to long queues in the customs hall for clearance it is the passengers responsibility to update VLC or the driver to continue waiting for their arrival Possible surcharges for waiting time at car parking at cost must be paid by clients in cash or by card (+5% card fee) to us or the driver before the journey is completed (waiting charge is levied according to the category of the vehicle booked for the journey) Generally, the passenger is not entitled to change the pickup time.

The following behavioural standards apply to the User when travelling with the affiliate/ VLC During the entirety of the booking ride, all passengers must follow the regulations which apply to the relevant Road Traffic Act, especially the seatbelt regulations. Any instructions given by the affiliate/ VLC must be followed. It is the responsibility of the affiliate/VLC to ensure a safe ride. It is therefore prohibited for passengers to open the doors while driving, throw any objects from the vehicle and/or stick body parts out of or shout from the vehicle. If the User wishes to use any of the devices or facilities in the vehicle, a brief instruction is required from the affiliate/ VLC Smoking is prohibited in the passenger part of the vehicle. If the User, or passenger, ignores this, they are liable to pay not only the cost for the cleaning of the vehicle but also compensate the loss of business due to the downtime of the vehicle. The consumption of food is discouraged. Alcoholic drinks are only allowed to be consumed in the car with prior consent.
The compensation claim for VLC is specified in the Booking Confirmation. Key factors for its amount (including reimbursement of expenses to VLC for the arranged transportation service) are the chosen vehicle class, the distance, how far in advance the ride is booked, as well as the pickup time and possibly the location. Additionally booked special requests, e.g. multilingual drivers, individual vehicle labelling, additional stops, bulky luggage, car seats for children, etc. may cause the price to increase.
Even after the conclusion of the arrangement agreement and even after the start of the booking ride, provided it is possible for the affiliate/ VLC, the User (and the passenger) can make changes to the Travel Arrangements. If a booking ride is spontaneously lengthened (distance or number of hours) according to the wish of the User, or passenger, the actual service (total distance or number of hours) will be newly calculated and priced according to the current price structure. In the case of hourly bookings (book by the hour car services), each additional 30-minute block is considered for invoicing, i.e. from the first additional minute, a half hour will be rounded up to ensure more reliable planning. Accordingly, the compensation claim increases for the User, due to VLC’s expenses for the Contract of Carriage for the Benefit of the User increasing. If the distance or number of hours is less than originally booked, the price remains unaffected.
For transfer services, no surcharges are applied in the case of airport or train station for a waiting time of up to 45 minutes for all airport and 30 mins for all station & cruise pick-ups till the agreed pick-up time, at which flight and train delays or earlier flights and trains lead to a deferral of the scheduled pick-up time by the planned period of time between the planned arrival time and the original pickup time, and up to 15 minutes from the agreed pick-up time in all other cases. Each additional minute of waiting time will be calculated as a flat-rate, including VAT, according to the one way/single trip, return trip, hourly & daily booking prices of the particular municipal area as well as the vehicle category booked for that particular booking journey
Hourly bookings contain the MILES (10 miles per hour) that are stated on the booking form (or by phone). Any additional MILES are subject to a surcharge, including VAT, and are calculated according to the price per MILE of the particular municipal area as well as the vehicle category booked for that particular booking journey, this cannot be carried forward to the next day in case of daily bookings
Once the Wedding car hire is booked and if you have selected eg.Rolls Royce or Stretch Limousine for your wedding day, any additional hours for Rolls Royce & Stretch Limousine is £180 per hour/ £75 per hour for all other cars shown in all 3 packages, this will only apply when one way/ single trip transfer has been booked or required number of hours have been used up and the chauffeur has been requested to wait after the drop off is done.
