Quotations, rates and charges
All prices are in GBP and are exclusive of the current VAT rate.
All quotations are estimated journey charges, and are valid for 30 days. They do not include waiting time, parking, tolls or telephone charges. Gratuities are at the customer’s discretion. Our Airport set rates include a 60 minutes waiting time (private Jet include a 30 minutes waiting time) at the airport from the time the plane has landed. Waiting time charges will be incurred after the 60 minutes (30 minutes for private Jets and any other transfers 15 minutes) has elapsed and be charged per 30 minutes at the hourly rate charged at £20 per hour. Incurred car parking fees will be charged at cost. All hire charges are rounded up to the nearest 30 minutes. Final journey charges will be calculated according to the actual route taken by the chauffeur and any other relevant factors. The chauffeur will take the most optimal route, unless the client gives specific instructions or prevailing traffic conditions dictate.
It is the passenger’s responsibility to request the relevant sized vehicle or to make the number of passengers and luggage known to AJLX Travel at the time of booking.
Luggage is not permitted in the passenger area of any vehicle. AJLX Travel reserves the right to refuse the transfer if excess luggage is present and charge as a COA at the tariff base rate.
Charges apply for customer no shows (NS), cancellations (CA) and cancellation on arrival (COA) at the tariff rate, based on the service booked. The cancellation notice periods are as follows:
- Executive vehicles (E Class) and MPVs (Viano): at least a period of 2 hours.
- Premium vehicles (S Class, BMW 7 series): at least a period of 2 hours. Outside of these notice periods no charge.
If you cannot locate your chauffeur and you seek an alternative method of transport without first contacting AJLX Travel to try and resolve the situation, you will be charged the full tariff rate based on the service booked.
