Safeguarding Our Chauffeurs and Our Vehicles
In order to ensure the safety of our drivers and maintain the highest quality standards that you, our Client, has come to expect smoking and the consumption of food is expressly forbidden.
Consumption of beverages is permissible but is strictly at the Hirers risk. Any spillages which require professional valeting will be charged accordingly. Our chauffeurs are highly experienced and mature individuals who will always act with the greatest level of respect and discretion. Whilst in charge of the vehicle our chauffeurs have complete authority to refuse any passenger, who is deemed to be under the influence of either alcohol or drugs and their behaviour, in the opinion of the chauffeur (who will be the sole judge) presents a threat to other passengers, road users, the chauffeur and or the vehicle.
Our chauffeurs reserve the right to terminate hire with immediate effect should any member of your party, or associated parties, display any behaviour deemed to be unacceptable. In the unlikely event that the interior or the exterior of the vehicle is damaged the Hirer is responsible for any damage that they or their party, or any associated parties, may have caused, howsoever caused. Costs for such damage will be invoiced directly to the Hirer at actual cost plus 15%. Costs may also include for loss of earnings whilst the vehicle is being repaired.
Loss and Liability

Should we be unable to deliver in either regard we will refund all hire charges with a discretionary payment of a £100, thus ending our liability to you.
On conclusion of the hire the vehicle is thoroughly checked and cleaned on its return. If there are any items found you will be promptly informed and your goods will be made available for collection. In the unfortunate event that items are reported but not however found within the vehicle the Company cannot accept any responsibility or liability for the loss of any such items.
