That notwithstanding, the Company will consider at its sole discretion, claims for a partial refund where it can be demonstrated that the circumstances could not be seen by the Hirer and provided, in any event, that the cancellation or claim for a partial refund is at least 28 days prior to the date of the confirmed hire. In the case of weddings and special events hires, no refunds will be provided where the cancellation takes place less than 8 weeks from the date of the booking. In all cases where a cancellation is permitted, any refund will be provided after the deduction of administration charges for $50 or 20% which ever is greater for standard hires or $150 or 40% whichever is greater for wedding and Special Events hires. The Company will not under any circumstances whatsoever, complete a hire where payment has not cleared on the due date, or in any event on the date of the hire. Cash paid must be paid at the commencement of hire and the client needs to sign the trip sheet in the possession of the driver 13. Additional charges Time permitting; the Chauffeur may be willing to collect additional passengers, subject to the maximum that the Vehicle can carry, at alternative locations. However, any additional mileage or time shall be charged to the Hirer. Whilst the chauffeur will attempt to accommodate any last minute changes, the final decision will remain with the chauffeur and the hirer expressly accepts this arrangement. In the event that the time or location of the hire is changed prior to the booking or at the time of the booking, the company expressly reserves the right to make any additional charges and to set such charges against the hirer’s deposit or credit card. Such charges will consist of an excess mileage charge and where the hire is extended beyond the agreed hire period, an hourly rate for each hour or part thereof. It is the Hirers responsibility to confirm with the Company or the Chauffeur current charges for additional hours and excess mileage, any failure to do so will not derogate the Hirers responsibility to pay the charges. Where a Hire extends beyond the period of the Booking for whatever reason including, but not limited to traffic jams, accidents and diversions, the Hirer accepts that this additional time and mileage shall be charged to the Hirer's account. In the event that the Vehicle has been left in an unreasonable condition by the Hirer or his or her party, then the Company reserves the right to charge for the cost of a valet. Such circumstances that could give rise to this charge include, but are not limited to; spillage of food or drinks and illness. The minimum cost of a valet is $185, but this amount could increase dependant on the consequential damage. The responsibility for reimbursement of such cost is that of the Hirer. Additional charge of 5% being for credit card transactions and administration fees will be charged on any and all charges paid via credit card. 14. Other conditions In the event that the Hirer is a business then that Company shall assume the responsibility of the Hirer and will be bound to advise the party or passengers of the terms and conditions of this Hire. If any term or condition is found to be invalid for any reason whatsoever this shall not deem this agreement to be invalid and all other terms shall remain in force. The Company may at its entire discretion refuse any Hire without explanation or reason. Changes to cars, times or dates may incur a fee at the discretion of Mr President Limo Hire.”Please also note:
