Passengers are to be at their designated collection point, standing outside their vehicles, Hotels, etc at least 15 minutes prior to the stipulated departure time,to ensure that they are ready to board once the shuttle arrives and to give us time to board luggage and passengers alike. Given that we need to keep to our timetable, the shuttle will depart at the set departure time and no calls will be made to missing passengers. Should passengers miss the shuttle, the onus will fall on the passenger/s to call us on 079 571 9900 / 081 475 7575 to find out the next collection point the shuttle will be stopping at in order for them to catch up to the shuttle. In the event of the shuttle not being at the stipulated collection point at the indicated time, the onus falls on the passenger to contact us on 079 571 9900 / 081 475 7575 within 10 minutes of the collection/departure time provided that we have not already contacted them with information regarding traffic/time delays, etc.
Passengers are requested to ensure that their given mobile number is switched on and monitored up to 24 hours prior to their transfer. Should the passengers’ mobile number not be provided and/or monitored, we cannot be held responsible for not being able to contact the passenger/s to advise them of any changes on the collection times/routes and hence will not be held liable for any additional costs incurred by the passenger should he/she miss the shuttle or ongoing transfers. International passengers are to contact us 24 hours prior to departure/collection to confirm their times and/or be notified of any variations (if applicable).
Whilst every effort will be made to ensure that passengers arrive at the designated destination on time, due to the very nature of this business, we do not hold ourselves liable for any time delays including and not limited to damages, injury and/or loss, save for what is covered by the mandatory Passenger Liability Insurance. We reserve the right to change our route to serve the best interest of the majority of passengers should the shuttle be delayed for whatever reason on any of our Northbound routes, usually prioritising the Airport then Station. Passengers are to ensure that they have sufficient insurance cover for their personal belongings as well as adequate Travel Insurance in case of missing their flights / ongoing travel arrangements / missing the Shuttle for whatsoever reason.

Northbound passengers: In the unfortunate event that passengers miss their shuttle due to unforeseen circumstances, they are entitled to a new ticket at a cost of the greater value between R100 and 50% of the new ticket price, on the condition that this new booking is made for the same day. Please note that these discounted new tickets will be offered only at our discretion, with preference given to full fare paying passengers. The dates/times of these new tickets cannot be changed.
Missing your shuttle due to flight/bus/train delays or changes:
We do not accept losses caused to our passengers by third parties. Passengers missing our shuttle due to late arrival of flights/busses/trains/cruise liners will need to claim their losses with the entity that caused their loss of our ticket and repurchase a new ticket on our next available shuttle.
Please note that eating, smoking and the consumption of alcohol are prohibited at all times when aboard our Shuttle. Failure to comply with this will result in the Passenger being warned and subsequently disembarked at the nearest safe area.
Children and Infants (12 and Under)
No unaccompanied children or infants will be allowed on the Shuttle. Parents are ultimately responsible for any mess made by their children and will be required to clean up after them. Out of courtesy to the next passenger, we request that parents ensure the good behaviour of their children and that they remain seated with their seat belts on. Infants aged 0-3yrs will be provided with a baby chair provided the request is made at least 72 hours prior to date of travel. As a safety precaution, we request that parents email us their booking reference number so that we can check the correct allotment of Baby Chairs for infants 0 – 3yrs.
