You must allow sufficient time when booking your vehicle to allow for the check-in times required by, for example, your airline.

You must book a suitable vehicle size for the number of passengers and luggage. We cannot guarantee to carry excessive amounts of luggage over and above what the vehicle is designed for. All luggage is carried entirely at your risk.
Please note that a child, no matter what age, counts as one passenger.
Please check your booking confirmation carefully and inform us promptly of any errors. We shall not be responsible for any delays caused or costs arising from your failure to provide us with correct information.
We are entitled to assume that any person who quotes the correct account number and Client name has authority to make a booking on behalf of the Client.
If you need to transport a wheelchair, please specify this at the time of booking.
The driver will travel by the most appropriate route on the day unless instructed otherwise by the Client, in which case additional charges may apply. Unless specified at the time of booking, we may not automatically be able to accommodate additional pick-ups or drop-offs, although every effort will be made to meet such requirements. If our driver is asked to wait either at the beginning or during a journey, we reserve the right to charge waiting time at our current standard rate.
We will endeavour to ensure the vehicle(s) arrive at the time and place requested. We cannot, however, accept responsibility for delays caused by circumstances beyond our control, such as mechanical failure, traffic jams, traffic accidents or extreme weather conditions. Nor do we accept responsibility for any consequential loss.
You agree to treat our drivers and staff, or drivers introduced to you through Ace Private Hire with respect and not to cause damage to their vehicles or to engage in any unlawful, threatening, harassing, abusive behaviour or activity whilst using their vehicles or any of our Services.
Ace Private Hire may in its absolute discretion, without liability and without giving reasons refuse Services to anyone for any reason at any time. We also reserve the right to refuse entry to our vehicles to anyone who is thought to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs and/or whose behaviour poses a threat to the safety of the driver, the vehicle or other passengers within the vehicle. We further reserve the right to terminate any journey due to unreasonable or improper behaviour by any passenger. If special cleaning of any vehicle is required because it has been left in an unreasonable state by a passenger/client, we reserve the right to charge the cost of cleaning to the Client.
We reserve the right to substitute any vehicle or chauffeur/driver. If this becomes necessary, without obligation, we will notify you in advance.

If you have paid in advance, we will refund your payment within 10 days.
If a booking is cancelled within two hours of the requested pick-up time, we reserve the right to make a full charge for the journey. If, however, the pick-up location necessitates the car being dispatched more than two hours before the pick-up time, we also reserve the right to make a full charge for the journey.

If you do not appear and make contact with our driver at the booked time and the designated pick-up point, we reserve the right to make a full charge for the journey.
We reserve the right to make a full charge and not issue any refunds, if after our vehicle arrives, it transpires the booking was made for the wrong date, wrong time, wrong location and/or other incorrect or misleading information, or if, for any reason whatsoever, the passenger leaves the pickup point without informing us.
