“No-Show” Policy

To ensure the dependability of Towncars Networks Australia Pty Ltd, it is necessary to reserve and dispatch a specific car and driver to meet each customer. It is therefore necessary to charge for the service (as a hotel must charge for a guaranteed room) in the event the passenger is a “no show”.

You can avoid the “no show” charge by giving us a call before the driver is dispatched. International bookings require 24 hours notice prior to the booked time. A No-Show will be charged the total amount of the confirmed fee if you do not “present” at the nominated time and place.

Waiting/Over Time

We will always endeavour to accommodate our clients who require excess time with our vehicles. Within reason and where possible, the vehicle will be made available to you for as long as possible after the specified period of your reservation.

Waiting time in excess of 15 minutes will be charged at the current Cash Booking rate or applicable Corporate rate. The waiting time will be charged, effective from the scheduled pickup time.

Unforseen Circumstances

We will make every effort to arrive at your collection & destination locations on time. However, occasionally, allowances must be made for unforseen circumstances such as traffic, road and weather conditions, illness, vehicle breakdown etc. We cannot assume responsibility for circumstances beyond our control. Should there be a vehicle breakdown or mishap rendering the reserved vehicle out of commission, we reserve the right to substitute a vehicle/vehicles. We will make every effort to supply an alternate vehicle and advise you prior to pick up.

Limits of Liabilities & Insurance
