For commercialpurposes we operate the telephone number (+34) 828 048 010, the website www.taxigrancanaria.net and the email address. For the provision of our services we work with transport operators that offer professional transport services for passenger transfers, or who act as agents with legal permission to offer transport services, all of whom are in possession of the relevant licences and have legal permission to carry out this activity.
Transport services are under no circumstances considered to be a tourism package as in the terms established by theCouncil Directive 90/314/EEC of 13th June 1990, nor in the terms of the Royal Decree 1/2007 dated 16th November, which approves the revision of the General Consumer Protection Act (la Ley General para la Protección de Consumidores y Usuarios) as well as other related provisions, and therefore the company does not under any circumstances operate as a travel agency.
Before requesting a service offered on our website, make sure you have read and understood these General Conditions, as they will apply to all subsequent contracts. By making a reservation you are confirming that you have read these Conditions and that you are legally entitled to accept them on your behalf and on behalf of all of the passengers. If you have any doubts about any of the contractual conditions, please get in touch with our Customer Service department before continuing with the reservation process. If you are not in agreement with any one of the obligationsarising from these conditions, regrettably you should refrain from making any reservations with us.
3. RESERVATION PROCESS
The person who makes the reservation should be over 18 years of age and is responsible for following all of the steps in the online reservation system, making sure that all the details provided are correct and complete, and that the payment is made in its entirety.
Once the contract with us has been formalized, the company will carry out the necessary procedures to organise the requested services.
The contract will be binding for the parties only when you have received your transfer confirmation by email. Please check your spam folder 24 hours after making the reservation to see if the confirmation email has arrived there as junk mail. In the event of the transport operator not being able to provide the service required the client will be informed and the total sum will be reimbursed using the same method used for payment, releasing the company from any further obligation to the client.
Once the reservation has been made, the data logged on our email server will be considered sufficient proof of receipt and will be taken as the client having received our notification.
Our confirmation message of charges and payments made by the client will not be considered as proof of a binding contract being in force.
The reservation confirmation should be printed off and kept to hand ready to present to the transport operator so that the driver can review it. If the reservationholder does not present the confirmation or is unable to locate it, the transport operator may decide not to render the service required. We recommend that the confirmation email or voucher be printed and carried on your person.
It is strictly prohibited for minors to request the services of the Company. Their parents or legal guardians should contact us immediately in the event of a minor reserving our services, so that we can proceed with cancelling it. Minors must be accompanied by an adult passenger when travelling.
4. PAYMENT METHODS
We accept payment through gateway payments (TPV Virtual) and PayPal. Using PayPal incurs an extra charge that must be paid by the client.
The charge will be made in Euros and the exchange rate tool provided is for information purposes only.
The information contained in the transfer confirmation includes the transfer requested (to/from). Any changes that might affect the reservation must be made via the “My Reservation” section or sent by email to at least 48 hours before the service was due to commence. It will only be considered effective once verified with the transport operator and confirmed by an email from the client.
Any increase in the cost of the services due to a change inthe reservation will be assumed bythe client.
Once the contract has been formalised, the client must notify our Customer Services department of any errors with a minimum of 48 hours notice before the corresponding transfer service. Notifications received with less than 48 hours notice before the transfer service will give the company the right to cancel the contract without incurring any penalties.
All contract cancelations must be put in writing by sending an email to our Customer Services department. Transfer services can be cancelled individually or the reservation as a whole including more than one service.
In the event of receiving a cancelation request more than 48 hours before the pick-up time of the transfer service that you wish to cancel, the full corresponding amount of the transfer will be reimbursed to you. No reimbursement will be made in the event of the cancellation being requested with less than 48 hours notice before the scheduled time of the transfer service you wish to cancel.
If the transport operator is obliged to make a significant change to the conditions of the service, or to cancel the service, we will inform you at the earliest available opportunity.
We will do everything possible to honour your preferences regarding your chosenvehicle; however in some cases it might be necessary to assign an alternative vehicle for operational or safety reasons. If the change involves supplying a lower-category or smaller sized vehicle with a more economical tariff, you will be reimbursed for the price difference.
In exceptional circumstances we might be obliged to cancel your reservation. The full amount will be reimbursed and this will cover all obligations towards the client as a result of the cancellation. In any case, we will make every effort to find a suitable alternative to any reservations we have to cancel.
7. CHILD SEATS
Local and national laws may vary depending on the country where the transfer service takes place. However, all of our transport operators are in compliance with current legislation. For safety purposes, if you reserve a private transfer we recommend that passengers under 12 years of age or under 135 cm in height use a booster seat or baby seat. You will have the opportunity to request these during the reservation process.
It is the reservation holder’s responsibility to check that the restraint system is compatible with the vehicle and to ensure that it is positioned in the correct way. The company will not be responsible for any incidents resulting from the poor use, or incorrect installation of the restraint system.
If you wish to travel with your own baby seat or booster seat and you have reserved a private transfer, you must notify us of this before beginning the journey. We will need to make sure that the vehicle being used by the transport operator is compatible with the seat. It is not possible to use child seats in the vehicles used for bus transfers.
We will do everything possible to ensure that the transport operator provides the child seat or booster that you requested. However there could be occasions when the seat requested might not be available. In such cases, you will have the right to a full refund for the amount that was incurred by reserving the seat. If there are no seats available, children over the age of three must use a seat belt. Children under the age of three can travel without a retention system but only in the rear passenger seats of the vehicle.
8. RESERVATIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH REDUCED MOBILITY
For transfers involving people with reduced mobility, our Customer Service department must be contacted beforehand so that they can check the availability of an appropriate vehicle in that city. We will do everything we can to have an adapted vehicle available in every city, but there might be occasions when we are not able to offer this service.
