Making a booking
When you request a booking you will receive an email; this will contain your booking information. The booking is not confirmed until the PHO confirms your booking request by telephone (Please ensure your mobile number is correct at time of booking). If your booking is successful, the driver will carry out your booking at the agreed time and location. If a driver is not available at the requested time of booking, the booking will not be carried out. If your booking request is unsuccessful, it may be due to the time requested, and so it is advisable to try again specifying a later time, whenever possible.It is your responsibility to ensure that your registration and booking details are entered correctly. Upon completion of your booking request, we advise you to check the confirmation email to ensure that your booking details are correct. If you notice an error, you must contact the PHO via the contact number provided in the confirmation email. We will not be held liable for any errors made when entering your registration and booking details and you will be charged for the full amount if the booking is not completed as a result.
Planning a journey
It is your responsibility to plan your journey accurately, allowing sufficient time to reach a destination, particularly when checking in for a flight, catching a train, or arriving in time for any other scheduled appointment. We will not be held accountable for any delays which may occur during transit, so it is important that you check your route before booking, and consider the time of travel and length of journey. The PHO will also call you to confirm your booking details and further advice can be obtained at this point.
