Bookings can be made online to the email firstname.lastname@example.org or by mobile phone (+351) 920389500 (call to national mobile network). Where two or more persons are included in the same booking, the person making the booking shall be deemed to have done so on behalf of both or all members of the booking and shall accept these terms and conditions on behalf of himself/herself, and for each member of the booking. The principal responsible person (“responsible person”) must be at least 18 years old.
Full payment is required at the time of booking or on arrival at or departure from the accommodation. In both cases, we will process the booking and issue by email the written confirmation with details of the persons involved in the booking and the transfers booked. The written confirmation acts as a “voucher” and must be presented to our representative/driver for the outward and/or return journeys. A legally binding contract will be created between the responsible party (and all passengers listed on the written booking) and us.
It is the responsibility of the responsible person (or any other person acting on behalf of passengers whose names appear on the written confirmation) to check the booking details before travel and to inform us as soon as possible if there are any errors. We cannot be held responsible for errors in services due to incorrect information provided at the time of booking.
European directive 2003/20/EC states that children must use a suitable child seat until they reach the age of 12 years or until they reach 135 cm.
All children and infants count towards vehicle occupancy regardless of age and therefore must be included in the projected field at the time of booking. Child seats are provided by us free of charge. We strongly recommend that you state your age at the time of booking so that we can provide the most suitable child seat according to age.
We are usually able to carry folding manual wheelchairs in our vehicles, but passengers must inform us at the time of booking. It is essential to ensure that the correct vehicle is available to meet your specific requirements.
Booking changes can be made directly by email or via telephone, free of any administration charge up to 2 days before the first service. In less than 2 days, these changes must be sent by email or telephone. The reservation number must be mentioned. If the change leads to an increase in cost, it must be paid by the client at the time of service. Last minute bookings will be subject to availability and a surcharge (until 24h before: 5€; until 12h before: 10€).
Cancellations within 48 hours of departure are subject to a cancellation fee. Cancellations outside 48 hours will be fully refunded.
Drivers or we reserve the right to refuse carriage to anyone who is, or appears to be, under the influence of alcohol or drugs and/or whose behaviour is deemed to be a threat to the driver or the vehicle. No refunds will be made in such circumstances.

All vehicles are fully insured for passenger and third-party claims, as required by Portuguese law.

We are not responsible for any costs incurred or for making any arrangements to return items to passengers.
If your incoming flight is diverted, we recommend that you contact us. Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate changes of this nature, please inform us that no charges will apply.
We will give you the departure time of the services from the hotel/accommodation to the airport according to the flight time provided by you. We strongly recommend that you do not change your departure time to later. All passengers are advised to be at the airport 2 hours before flight departure.

If extra stops are required (for example to collect the key from a flat to a third-party location), an additional charge payable may apply. The agreement and payment of these additional costs are between the person responsible and us.
In the unlikely event that our driver is late for service, and the responsible party is unable to contact us, we will pay for the extra money they have spent on a taxi. We are not responsible for any missed flights caused by this circumstance.
