Website use by minors
If the visitor wishes to book a transportation services package, he/she should provide the following information: name, phone number and email, as well as information on the pickup point, date and time of pickup/arrival, and his/her destination. The visitor is obliged to enter true and accurate information on the website for the processing of his/her booking his/her identification upon arrival at the pick-up point.
In the booking form, the visitor can choose the itinerary he/she is interested in and the Company can confirm it immediately. Depending on the choice of itinerary and the number of passengers, the price is automatically calculated. At the same time, if a booking is made, the booking engine automatically manages the availability of vehicles, and the vehicle selected by the visitor automatically ceases to be available on the website. After completing the booking and depending on the payment method (see below), a thank you message appears on the visitor’s screen.
When the visitor books a service through the website, he/she makes a proposal to the Company to conclude a contract for the provision of transportation services, which is accepted at the moment the Company confirms it. The Company then contacts the visitor with the contact information he/she has entered, sending a confirmation email within 24 hours. This email includes the relevant offer of the Company as well as other details of the booking. Immediately after the payment, as indicated in the email, the visitor will receive his/her booking voucher electronically, together with the relevant transportation services contract that has been concluded. Since the contract is concluded between the visitor and the Company, the latter is responsible for the issuance of the statutory tax document.
During the booking process the visitor needs to inform the Company if he/she is traveling with children. Each child is considered one passenger in the vehicle.
Visitors are advised to bring their own child restraint system. Otherwise, the visitor can request it during the booking process. This request is subject to availability, so the Company cannot guarantee that the restraint system will be similar to the one the visitor is used to. The Company applies the specifications of the European Directive “i-SIZE / ECE R129” for the selection of the child restraint system.
If the Company is not informed at the time of booking that the visitor will travel with a child or if the above conditions are not met, the Company may refuse to provide the service and has the right to cancel the transportation service without the right to a refund.
During the booking process the visitor needs to inform the Company if he/she is traveling with domestic animals (pets). Pets are the sole responsibility of their owner and must travel in an IATA approved crate. The carriage of pets is subject to Company approval and will incur an additional charge. If the Company has not been informed at the time of booking of the above, it reserves the right to refuse to provide the service and it will be canceled without the right to a refund.
Prices are calculated based on the vehicle, the destination and the date the visitor wishes to use the Company’s services.
Transportation services are provided at a pre-agreed price and not at a fare, exactly as they are depicted in the relevant field of the Company’s website.
For bookings worth more than € 300, it is necessary to deposit 30% of the agreed price via bank deposit. For bookings of equal or lesser value of € 300 the visitor can either prepay the total amount at any time via bank deposit or pay it to the driver of the vehicle before the start of the transport service.
To issue an invoice over € 500, the visitor it is necessary to pay the amount through the banking system (bank transfer or via credit/debit card).

The Company reserves the right to modify its prices at any time, even after payment. The reasons for the above modification may include a change in the prices of tolls, fuel, or VAT. The Company will notify you in writing of the change in price and the reasons for it.
The Company will use the information provided by the visitor during the booking process in order to transport him/her to his/her destination and as close as possible to his/her place of residence, given the characteristics of the vehicle and the physical access conditions of the destination. Passengers will be picked up at the meeting point, date and time specified on the booking voucher.
The waiting time for the scheduled appointment is 60 minutes at the airport, 40 minutes at the Ports and 20 minutes at the other meeting points. If the passenger is not present at the meeting point at the agreed time, he/she loses the right to a refund for the transportation service. The passenger is responsible for ensuring the appropriate date and time of his/her booking, depending on the circumstances (e.g. depending on the scheduled time of the flight or ship departure).
In the event that the passenger cannot locate the driver at the predetermined meeting point, he/she must contact the Company by his/her own means, at the telephone number indicated on the booking voucher. If the Company is not informed in a timely and appropriate manner of the specific issue, the service will be canceled without the right of refund.
