If the trip is cancelled due to situations within our control, then if it is not possible to rearrange for a different day, you will receive a refund via a gift card to use on a future booking.
Any itineraries given are purely examples and can change at any time. There can be a range of reasons resulting in a changed itinerary.
Some payment methods available take longer to process than others. This is your responsibility, we will not process any order until the funds have cleared into our account. Your order is not accepted until you receive a confirmation email, and any time-limits (such as minimum time required to organise a tour) starts from when the order is accepted with cleared funds.
The hire start and finish times plus the purpose of the booking will be agreed prior to the hire date as will the locations to be visited. We reserve the right to decline any hire that has not been truthfully described.
The hirer is responsible to the company for any damage to the vehicle, its fittings or equipment caused by the negligence or misconduct of any passengers carried thereon. The hirer may not cause the hours of work or driving performed by the driver to break the law relating to drivers hours as set out in the 1968 Road Traffic Act and any subsequent amendments. Notices or decorations shall not be displayed from the vehicle without the previous consent of the company in writing. The company shall not be responsible for any failure to execute this contract by reason of accident, fire, tempest, strikes or any cause outside their control. The company shall not be responsible for loss or damage to luggage or other property brought onto the vehicle during the period of hire however caused.
Alcohol may not be taken on to, or consumed on the bus unless by strict arrangement with the company at the time of booking, and confirmation in writing by the company.
The hirer is responsible for removing the debris at the end of the hire. The crew have the right in all circumstances to refuse travel to any person they deem drunken, riotous, or offensive in accordance with PSV ‘Conduct’ Regulations 1990 as amended.
The authority of the driver and / or conductor is final. They have the right to stop the bus, cancel the hire or ask passengers to leave the bus at their discretion for reasons of safety, health, behaviour or any other reason. In such an event, the hirer will not receive compensation.
If any damage occurs which causes our vehicle(s) to be out of use for repairs ‘The Client’ will be liable to pay a daily rate, equal to the stated fee for the booked event whilst it is off the road (limited to £2,000) plus the cost of any extra vehicles ‘The Company’ may need to hire, and any repairs and/or cleaning.
Additional charges such as parking fees, permits or entry fees will be levied in accordance with the charges imposed by the company supplying the services and must be paid by the hirer. Such charges are to be paid on demand or ideally in advance of the date of hire. In addition, the cost of any wilful damage or unreasonable cleaning will be charged to the hirer.
There is no guarantee that the vehicle will perform the journey in any given time and the company shall not be accountable for any loss, inconvenience or damage which may arise from any delay, detention or breakdown. We always try to arrive in good time, before your hire starts, but it is not always possible to be certain that the vehicle will not encounter problems with congestion or road closures.
We shall not be liable to pay any compensation, damages or expenses arising out of any partial or total failure to perform the hire. We cannot accept responsibility for delays caused by traffic conditions or other disruptions beyond our control. This includes emergency road closures caused by accidents or diversions made by Highways Authority or police.
If you wish to cancel the booking we can refund 50% of the balance paid up to 2 weeks before hire date excluding deposit. In the 2 weeks prior to the date no refund will be given.
Pickup and set down points for all hires have to be agreed at the time of paying the balance. The driver has the final decision on the exact route taken. The driver will endeavour to accommodate all reasonable requests from the hirer, but will consider the safety of the passengers, other road users and the vehicle itself when determining the route, and any pickup/set down points.If the hirer is in any doubt as to the suitability of any roads necessary to the execution of the hire for the safe passage of the bus they must notify the Company at the time of booking and pay any charge that is requested for a route survey to be carried out. No liability can be accepted if the bus is unable to safely reach any or all stopping-off points should this not be done and the adjudication of the driver in such circumstances will be final.
The safety of passengers is our first priority. The following guidelines must be followed by all passengers:
- Passengers may not move between the upper and lower decks while the bus is in motion
- Passengers must remain seated while the bus is in motion
- Passengers must act in accordance with any instructions given by the conductor or driver
- Passengers may not travel on the stairs or platform of the bus.
- No standing passengers may be carried on any private hire working.
- The total number of passengers carried will always be limited to the seating capacity displayed on the vehicle. The section relating to standing passengers does not apply on private hire work.
- Due to the nature of the business our vintage buses cannot accommodate wheelchairs, pushchairs (prams), bicycles, or large items of luggage and you are advised to make alternative arrangements for these requirements.” 2 Folded up pushchairs may be carried with permission of the conductor.
Our vehicles are classic London buses and as such are not fitted with seat belts. If children are coming on board without parents, it is advisable to make the parents aware of this fact, gain their consent and ensure you have adequate adult supervision present on the bus.
Smoking is not permitted on any part of the bus including the rear platform and this includes the upper deck, even on an open top.
In the event of the mechanical failure of any of its buses the Company will endeavour to provide a suitable replacement at the earliest opportunity. However, due to the nature of the business this may take some time and should the hirer decide to make alternative arrangements then the Company cannot accept any responsibility for the costs so incurred.
The Company will always try to provide any vehicle specifically requested at the time of booking for a hire. However, due to the nature of the business it is not always possible to guarantee that any vintage vehicle will always be available for service when required and the Company reserves the right in these circumstances to substitute any suitable alternative vehicle at its own discretion.
