Your responsibilities-Contact

  1. Please ensure that your phone number given on the booking form is an operational mobile phone number that will work in Australia as we cannot be held liable for any costs that you may incur, if we are unable to contact you.

  2. Please check your mobile phone for messages on arrival so that we can advise you of any delays.

  3. For return transfers, please contact us between 24 and 48 hours before to confirm your departure time and transfer details. 

  4. The destination and pick-up addresses on the ticket are the address to which you will be delivered and picked up. If it is necessary for you to collect keys from an agency or post-box, it is your responsibility to advise us in advance. If no pre-warning is given then key collection will be at the chauffeur’s discretion and may be refused if the vehicle is to be used for a consecutive transfer.  The chauffeur will endeavour to locate the accommodation or agency in advance; however, it is ultimately your responsibility to obtain directions. 

General

  1. We reserve the right to use a different transfer operator in exceptional circumstances; they must be fully registered and approved.

  1. If your flight is delayed by more than 2 hours we reserve the right to organise alternative transport and any additional costs will be charged to you. 

  2. In the event that your flight is delayed, it is your responsibility to call us on 07 4213 3333 and inform us of the delay. Failure to do so may end up in a cancellation of your transfer. 

  3. If we are unable to wait beyond two hours from the client’s scheduled arrival time, we reserve the right to suspend the booking and continue with other business which means the client would need to re-book upon arrival and we will return as soon as possible to continue the booking. We will only exercise this right in the event that the delay compromises the service to other clients’ bookings scheduled to follow the delayed booking. It is therefore essential the client contacts the Exemplar office by telephone (07 4213 3333) in the event of their flight departure being delayed by more than 20 minutes to advise of any delay so as we can endeavour to provide the best alternative arrangement(s).

Rescheduling

  1. We endeavour where possible and subject to our schedule to provide the client with a replacement transfer if diverted to an alternative airport or station. Additional costs may apply and will be quoted at the time of re-schedule.

  2. We will not be liable for any charges if the client has missed flights due to unforeseen circumstances.

  3. In the event of a third party supplier being contracted to provide the transfer on behalf of the client, we are not liable for any actions or the consequences of any actions of the third party supplier whilst the client is in the care of the third party supplier. The client shall accept and travel under the public liability insurance of the third party supplier and any claims arising during the period of the time the client is in the care of the third party supplier must be directed to the third party supplier.

  4. If the client’s flight or train is diverted to an alternative airport or rail station we will endeavour where possible and subject to other booking commitments to provide the client with an alternative transfer to or from the new collection or destination address at our discretion.  Any extra costs implied will be due by you.  In certain circumstances the client may be able to claim this amount through their travel insurance.

Car Seats

  1. Child or booster seats are available on request for use in sedan limousines. They are provided for free. It is the responsibility of the client to give us notice at the time of booking to ensure availability. We will not be held liable if a transfer cannot be completed due to failure to notify us.

  2. All passengers’ luggage must be clearly labelled with the owner’s name and destination address.

  3. Passengers are limited to one main item of luggage plus normal ‘carry-on’ baggage Any excess luggage must be declared at the time of booking. We reserve the right to charge an extra fee for items exceeding this allowance or refuse to transport the items. 

  4. If your baggage fails to arrive at the airport with you, please contact or driver immediately as he will need to be made aware of your delay.

  5. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage caused to luggage accompanying passengers except where there has been negligence on our behalf.

  6. Any vehicle operated or controlled by us is fully insured and licensed to carry passengers under Australian law however the client’s luggage is carried entirely at their own risk and no responsibility can be accepted by us for loss or damage.
