Terms and Conditions of Business

The Terms and Conditions governing the provision of car/taxi booking and/or account services provided by “The Company” Greenway Travel Limited and you the “Customer”.

1. General


Any terms or conditions sought to be imposed by the Customer shall not be incorporated into the Contract and shall have no effect unless agreed to in writing by the Company.


We (the Company) may, as your agent, directly or through an intermediary ask where we deem to be necessary, another contractor ("Third Party Contractor") to carry out some or all of any work which you (the Customer) instruct us to carry out for you. We shall pay the reasonable charges of Third Party Contractors on your behalf and recharge them to you with our own fees. We will ensure that the Third Party Contractor fees which are recharged to you are in line with the fees we will have quoted to you, had we done the work ourselves. We will take all reasonable care in selecting and instructing a Third Party Contractor.

1.3. Our fares are in accordance with the approved rates published by our Licensing Authority, South Somerset District Council. We may, at the Company's absolute discretion, offer a discount on those fares from time to time.


Waiting time is chargeable after 5 minutes of the agreed pick-up time and is charged at the approved rate.

2. Cash journeys.


Greenway Travel Limited is a booking agency and we act as agents for the drivers (the principles) in cash work. If you require a receipt for your journey which has been paid by cash, we must advise you that drivers are self employed and are not VAT registered. Therefore, any receipt given by the driver for cash payment will not include VAT or have VAT added.

3. Journeys on account


In respect of account work, Greenway Travel Limited acts as the principle with the drivers acting as agents on its behalf to carry out the work.


The Customer agrees to pay the Company for all journeys provided by the Company on account. We shall invoice after the journey has taken place. Invoiced amounts shall be due and payable 14 days from date of invoice.


You will be invoiced with the fare applicable at the time of each relevant journey or at the rate as may otherwise be agreed with the Company in writing plus all other charges including waiting charges, parking and toll charges, soiling charges, unsocial hours charges and administration charges.


The price of the goods and services is in Pounds Sterling.


If the cost to us of carrying out the work is subsequently increased by reason of increases in costs or any other factor outside our control, then we shall notify you before undertaking any work to which the increase will apply. If you require us to discontinue the work, you shall only be required to pay us for the work already carried out.


Unless agreed otherwise, the price for the services shall be payable no later than 14 days from the date of the relevant invoice. The time stipulated for payment shall be of the essence of the Agreement. Failure to pay within the period specified shall entitle us to write to you and upon the expiration of seven days notice, to charge you for costs and expenses incurred in recovering late payments, and to charge interest at the rate then in force pursuant to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 as at the due date.

4. Rights and Powers of the Company - the Company reserves the right to:


Change the rules or instructions concerning the use of any part of the Service from time to time.


Temporarily suspend the Service to the Customer wholly or in part in the interest of the quality of Service or in the interest of other Customers.


Suspend or temporarily suspend the Service in the event of communication failure.


Decline the Service unless the Company is at its own discretion is satisfied that the proper account security procedures have been followed and shall not be liable in any way for refusing the service under these circumstances.

5. Vehicles


Whilst every effort shall be made to supply the vehicle type booked, there may be instances e.g. circumstances beyond our control, when the selected vehicle is not available. In such circumstances a vehicle of a standard suitable to complete the journey shall be supplied.


The customer is expected to provide at the time of booking full details of requirements (e.g. luggage requirements). Please note that we do not carry animals of any sort (other than registered disability assistance dogs). Please also note that due to the nature of the vehicle, the Toyota Prius can only carry a maximum of two suitcases and two smaller soft bags (such as cabin bags) when the maximum of 4 passengers are being carried.

6. Liability


The Company shall use all reasonable endeavours to get you to your destination on time, but shall not be liable for any loss due to delays. The Company always strives to run a reliable service. However sometimes cars cannot arrive at the time a customer has booked, for reasons beyond our control. If your car is running late, please contact our office immediately on 01935 357777 and we will do our best to tell you why your car is late and advise you approximately the time the car is due to arrive. It is the Customers responsibility to allow sufficient time for the journey and the Customer should allow additional time for delays and unexpected occurrences where the journey is important and especially if onward connections may be missed. Our staff may advise on average journey times but the decision and responsibility as to booking time ultimately lies with the Customer.


The Company will endeavour to book details correctly. However we will not be held responsible for any misunderstandings during telephone bookings between the booking clerk and the customer resulting in late arrival of the vehicle, incorrect vehicle type or non arrival due to a cancelled booking. Under no circumstances shall the Company be liable (in contract, tort or otherwise) for any loss of profits, business or for any indirect or consequential loss whatever.


All luggage or personal possessions are carried entirely at your risk. Drivers are instructed to take lost possessions left in their taxis to Yeovil Police Station. The Company does not store or receive lost possessions.


The Company is an agency for self-employed drivers and therefore will not be held responsible for drivers activities outside our control. The Company passes to drivers, personal information of customers to assist in gaining information of collection of customers and the location of the destination required. Greenway Travel Limited will not be held responsible for the drivers’ actions when using this information.


The Company shall be entitled to cancel all services in the event of a declared national emergency, riot, war, fuel shortage, extreme weather or terrorist attack, or other circumstances beyond its control. If the car breaks down during your journey the Company will endeavour to arrange an alternative car to complete the journey as soon as practicable.


You shall indemnify the Company against all losses, costs, damages and expenses arising from any act or omission of any passenger in your party.

7. Cancellations and Lateness


When you make a booking with Greenway Travel Limited a vehicle is reserved for you and no other bookings will be taken for that vehicle for the predicted period of hire, including travelling to the pick-up point and returning from the drop-off point. If you need to cancel your booking, please contact the Company as soon as possible. If you cancel a booking within one hour prior to the vehicle despatch then, at the Company's absolute discretion, a charge may be incurred.


If we arrive at the pick-up point and the passenger is not there we will attempt to contact the Customer using the telephone number(s) you have provided at the time of booking. If we are unable to make contact for any reason, we will try again in ten minutes. If we are still unable to make contact we will make a further and final attempt after another ten minutes. If we are still unable to make contact for whatever reason we will assume that the customer has cancelled the booking and the car will be recalled. In this event the Customer will be liable for a cancellation charge which will be calculated on the total journey time/distance and any additional waiting time. It is therefore the Customer's responsibility to provide active telephone numbers at the time of booking.

8. Children


The Company must be made aware of children under the age of 16 travelling by themselves.


The booking will be declined if children under the age of 14 are travelling alone.


Additional charges may be applied where the company has had to make additional arrangements to ensure the safe transport of the child.


The Company does not provide child car seats or booster seats. Taxis are exempt from providing car seats. Passengers with children who require car seats may provide their own but the Company is unable to store those seats for you.


Young children and babies have to be counted as individual passengers.

9. Customer Service


If you are unhappy with any aspect of our service at the time of the journey, please contact us on 01935 357777 will attempt to resolve the issue immediately.


If, in the unfortunate event that the Company is unable to resolve a dispute to your satisfaction, you may complain to the Licensing Department of South Somerset District Council as the drivers and the Company are regulated and licensed by South Somerset District Council.

10. Disputed Charges


In the event of any dispute concerning the calculation by the Company of its charges such dispute shall be notified to the Company by the Customer within 21 days of the Invoice (time being of the essence). In the event of no such notification being received by the Company the Customer shall accept the amount as being properly due and calculated and shall not be entitled to dispute the sum in any way whatsoever.

11. Invalidity


If any part of these terms and conditions is unenforceable (including any provision in which we exclude our liability to you) the enforceability of any other part of these conditions will not be affected.

12. Governing Law and Jurisdiction


Parties to this Agreement agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

13. Entire Agreement


This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter and supersedes any previous agreements, arrangements, undertakings or proposals, oral or written.

14. Third Party Rights


Nothing in this Agreement is intended to, nor shall it confer any rights on a third party.

15. Changes to Terms and Conditions of Business


We reserve the right to make minor changes to the Terms and Conditions of business from time to time.
