What you need to know about Limousine Cancellation Policies
There are numerous events and parties going down this season. You already booked your limousine ready for that special day. However, due to inevitable circumstances, you may have to cancel your reservation. Again, other factors could make your reservation get annulled by the limo company. Below, the focus will be on the factors that could lead to the cancellation of reservation.
Not understanding the contract
A difference exists between reading and understanding the contract. Some clients just read a contract in a hurry and sign it without comprehending every word written there. Contracts come with a lot of details that can only be explained by the limo contractor. The contracts state the hidden charges that may occur in the course of your ride. Failing to read thoroughly may result in frustrations when the company demands extra cash. It’s important to understand every detail and ask questions where you do not understand.
Failure to sign the contract
It may seem obvious to jot down that signature. Shockingly, there are so many clients who forget to sign their contracts. When a contract is not entirely signed, it tells the limo company that you do not agree to their terms and so is the limo service. So, ensure you sign the contract immediately you are done reading through it.
Most limo companies require a deposit during reservation while others may demand a full pay. Failing to pay this amount as the company needs may result in your reservation getting cancelled. Some companies may refund the deposit while others may deny it.
Failure to pay damage deposit
As a matter of precaution, some companies will ask for a damage deposit during the booking process. The deposit is supposed to foot any damages that may occur during your ride. In the case where no damages occur, the money is refunded to the client. If a customer fails to give the deposit, then the whole reservation may be cancelled or put on hold.
Failure to confirm
Most limo companies will call you at least 24 hours before the time of your scheduled ride. The call is supposed to confirm the pickup points as well as timing. Where a client fails to communicate with the company, then the only option is to have the reservation cancelled.
Alcohol and drug use
Limo companies have a strict alcohol and drug use policy. Drugs are not allowed in the vehicles and alcohol consumption should be moderate. Underage drinking and smoking are also illegal. In situations where a passenger is found indulging in this, the service is terminated immediately and no refund is accorded.
Every limo has its maximum seating capacity. In situations where a group will be travelling, consult with the operator on the number allowed in the vehicle. Attempting to board the limo when in excess can result in the cancellation of your ride.
Above are clear and avoidable situations that can lead to the cancellation of your reservation.
Understand the company’s rules in depth before you make a booking. It is better being sure than sorry. Take precaution by avoiding the above highlights. With so doing, you will have an enjoyable ride.
