To provide our services, we work with transport companies that offer professional transfer services for passenger transport. In addition, we work as an agency for transport services and have the appropriate licenses and permits required by national law for this activity.
The transport services are in no way packages within the meaning of Directive 90/314/EEC of June 13, 1990 or according to the provisions of the Spanish Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007 of November 16, which approves the revised text of the General Consumer Code and additional legislation. Therefore, the company can in no case be considered as a travel agency.
Through its websites, Taxis and Transfers/CostaBravaTaxi offers transportation management services for individuals and groups.
Before requesting any service offered on our website, please ensure that you have read and understood these terms as they will apply to any subsequent contract. By making a booking, you confirm that you have read these Terms and have the legal authority to accept them on behalf of you and all passengers. If you do not understand any of the terms of the contract, we strongly recommend that you contact customer service before proceeding with the booking. If you do not agree to these terms, you will unfortunately not be able to make a booking with us.
3. ONLINE BOOKING PROCESS
The person who makes the booking must be at least 18 years old. He/she must follow the online booking process, ensure that all details are entered correctly and completely, and make the full payment.
Upon entering into the contract with Taxis and Transfers/CostaBravaTaxi, the company will complete all the necessary formalities to organize the requested service.
The contract only becomes legally binding once you have received the transfer receipt by email. Should the transport company not be able to provide the requested service, you will be informed and you will be refunded the total amount by the way you paid. This means that any liability on our part is settled.
You are required to acknowledge all communications you receive from us. Should you forget to acknowledge receipt of an email, your email server records will serve as proof of receipt.
The sending of a payment confirmation on our part does not mean that you have entered into a legally valid contract.
You should print out the transfer receipt that must be presented to the transport company so that each receipt can be presented at the driver's inspection. If the lead passenger fails to present the receipt, the transfer service may not be provided. We recommend you save that
Also print out the correspondence between the parties and take it with you.
Minors are strictly prohibited from requesting any service from us. Parents, guardians or other persons responsible for them should notify us immediately when the minor makes a booking with our company so that we can cancel the booking immediately.

Once the contract is legally binding, the customer must notify the customer service center of any errors therein at least 48 hours before the relevant transfer service. Notification within 48 hours of the relevant transfer service entitles us to cancel the contract without penalty or charge.
6. CANCELLATIONS BY YOU

If we receive your cancellation request more than 48 hours before the agreed pick-up time of the transfer service you want to cancel, the payment amount for this transfer will be refunded to you except for an administrative fee of 20.00. If we receive your cancellation less than 48 hours before the agreed pick-up time of the transfer service you want to cancel, no refund will be made.

We make every effort to meet your vehicle requirements. However, subject to availability, the vehicle may be replaced by a larger vehicle or multiple vehicles. In rare cases, one or more transfers may be merged into one. All parties concerned are informed here and the transfer is only carried out after positive confirmation from each individual party. There is no entitlement to a price reduction if individual or multiple journeys are combined.
On rare occasions it may be necessary to cancel your booking. In these cases, you will receive a full refund of the payment amount. However, no further claims arise from the cancellation.

12. TRAVEL INSURANCE
We strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance according to your needs. Please read all contract details and print out the documents so that you always have them with you when you travel. Comprehensive travel insurance covers many contingencies that are beyond your control.
13. OUR LIABILITY
If we fail to comply with these terms, we are only liable for loss or damage suffered that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these terms or our negligence and only up to the value of the fare you paid. We are not liable for any loss or damage that was not foreseeable or that occurs as a result. We shall not be liable for any injury that is not directly attributable to us or that occurs accidentally, as a result of force majeure, or as a result of legal or administrative requirements.
We cannot be held responsible for any event that may arise during the performance of the service, including but not limited to illness, personal injury or death, unless caused by our negligence.
This means that we may - under these Terms - accept liability, for example in the event of death or personal injury, or if your transfer service is not performed as agreed or proves to be inadequate. However, we only assume responsibility for failures in the application of reasonable care and conscientiousness in the provision and implementation of your contractual transport service by us, our employees or the transport company. If you wish to make a claim against us, please note that it is your responsibility to demonstrate a failure to use reasonable care and diligence.
Furthermore, we are only responsible for what our employees or transfer companies do or do not do if they were working in the course of your employment (for employees) or working on our behalf (for transfer companies) at the time.
These terms and conditions do not exclude: a. our liabilities to you for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence b. Your statutory rights as a customer, which cannot be excluded or limited.
We are relieved of any liability if the customer contractually agrees other services directly with the transport company.
We cannot guarantee the accuracy or reliability of the content on this website. This includes such eventualities as viruses. However, we make every effort to fix known errors as quickly as possible. Should such errors result in bookings made as a result of incorrect pricing and promotional information, we reserve the right to cancel the contract without offering any compensation to the customer.
14. FORCE MAJEURE
We accept no liability and will not pay any compensation if the performance of our obligations or the obligations of the transport company has been prevented or impaired directly or indirectly as a result of force majeure or circumstances beyond our control, e.g. B. extremely adverse weather conditions, natural disasters and other events of force majeure, acts of terrorism, accidents caused by third parties on the transfer route, police checks, unusually heavy traffic or industrial action.
Any contact regarding a change in booking information must be made by email.
If changes to the contract are not possible, we will contact you by email at the email address you provided when booking. The sending of this email will be considered proof of receipt by you. This also applies to all other e-mails that we may send you. It is therefore necessary that you verify that the e-mail address you have provided is correct and that you read all incoming e-mails up to the time of your transfer performance.
In case your arrival is delayed or rerouted to another airport, train station or port, the transport company will postpone the transfer service and you will be picked up at the new arrival time, subject to availability. In the case of delays of more than 90 minutes, the transfer can be canceled by us. You will receive a “PDF” copy of the booking contract from us to present to your travel agency for reimbursement of the transfer amount.
If for any other reason you fail to show up at the pick-up location within a reasonable time (max. 45 minutes after the aircraft lands or 10 minutes at another pick-up address) after the pick-up time agreed in your booking voucher, the transport company or our customer service will try to reach you on the cell phone number you provided
If it is not possible to contact you by phone because you did not provide a working mobile phone number when booking, you have no or only bad connection or no reception, the mailbox answers or the call is not answered, the service will not be provided and the transport company is immediately released from its obligations and no refund will be due.
16. TRANSPORT SERVICES
We offer various services with the agreement of the transport companies. These include private transfer services as well as shared or shuttle transfer services.
The route to or from the selected destination cannot be guaranteed. Despite our best efforts to meet pickup times, these are not guaranteed.
Should you not find your private transfer driver or shuttle transport company representative upon arrival at the airport, it is your responsibility to contact us by email and/or phone. If the driver of your private transfer or the representative of the shuttle transport company cannot find you, a customer service representative will call you on the phone number you provided when booking. Please make sure you have this mobile phone with you and that it is switched on is while you are waiting for your luggage or at customs. If we cannot reach you, we cannot provide the service and no refund will be due. For non-airport pickup locations, we require your phone call within 10 minutes of your scheduled pickup time. An electronic record of all incoming calls is kept with a third party telephone provider and used as evidence in the event of a dispute as to whether or not a call was made. Unused transfers and alternative transportation costs will not be reimbursed unless pre-authorized by a member of our team. If approved to use alternative transportation, submit the relevant invoice to our Customer Care team for verification. No payment will be made for travel expense claims submitted without a valid receipt.
It is your responsibility to check the agreed pick-up time and ensure you arrive at the airport, train station or port in time for check-in or other arrangements.
The transport company will drive as close as possible to the specified addresses, both at pick-up and at your destination address. If access via a normal route is blocked due to weather conditions, traffic accidents, etc., the transport company will, at your express request, use a longer route to make it possible reach the agreed destination. In these cases, you may incur additional costs.
All agreed transfer services are covered by the professional liability insurance of the transport company or its subcontractors.
We endeavor to send confirmations by SMS if requested. However, this service depends on the telephone network, which is beyond our control. If a text message is lost or delayed, the customer should refer to the information sent by email or available in the "My Booking" section of our website.
In the case of arrival delays of more than one hour caused by the airline, it may happen that we or our partner company cannot carry out the transfer service. Here the customer has no right to a refund of his booking.
If the customer cannot be picked up at the airport/port or elsewhere within 60 minutes due to delays caused by the customer, we are entitled to charge for the waiting time (up to a maximum of 20,- per hour or part thereof).
