1. Orders and assignments

Rides can be ordered by phone, by email, through an online ordering process (remote order), or by raising your hand. The prices that are used, if necessary, were determined by Taxi4You itself. These prices are always posted in the vehicle. When using a taxi, the Customer expressly agrees to these rates.

A ride can also be ordered at a taxi stand, as determined by the government. The rates of such a journey, departing from a taxi stand, are determined by the municipality/city of the place where this journey was started.

Prices always depend on external factors, so that the price of a particular ride at that particular time cannot be applied to another ride or the same ride at another time. If a discount is granted, this discount is deemed to have been granted only once, unless stated otherwise. All péage or toll is always to be paid extra by the Customer, unless stated otherwise in the offer, reservation or transport document.

With a remote order, the control center of Taxi4You will communicate the waiting time, ie the time until the taxi can pick up the passenger. This waiting time is indicative and only an estimate. The taxi can therefore always be a little later, but also a little earlier. The Customer must take this into account.

2. Customer Responsibility

The Customer is responsible for the correct entry and communication of all data such as:

The Customer is also responsible for the easy accessibility of the place of collection. Any delay due to this will be borne by the Customer.

If Taxi4You should suffer damage because the place of collection was not easily accessible, the Customer will fully indemnify Taxi4You for the damage.

If certain wishes were not specified in the order, Taxi4You has the right to refuse to carry out these additional wishes or to charge an additional fee in accordance with the current unit prices. This is the case, for example, with extra luggage, an extra passenger, etc.

The Customer is expected to contact Taxi4You as soon as possible if it appears that the driver is not present at the agreed place at the agreed time.

To ensure that the journeys run as smoothly as possible, passengers are expected to be ready at the agreed time. If this is not the case and the driver has to wait longer than 15 minutes, a waiting time will be charged according to the current unit prices. The Customer guarantees that the passengers comply with this and will indemnify Taxi4You if necessary.

In case of contamination of the vehicle (due to vomiting or otherwise) which requires primary cleaning of the vehicle, a compensation of EUR 250 will be requested.

3. Cancellation/Termination

Taxi4You has the right to cancel/stop the order, with immediate effect and without notice of default, nor compensation in the event of suspension of payment or (application for) bankruptcy by the Customer or in the event of liquidation or cessation of the activities of the Customer or if the Customer, despite written notice of default with a period of 7 calendar days being observed, fails to fulfill the obligation. Taxi4You also has the right to cancel the order in case of force majeure.

The Customer can also cancel the order subject to payment of a compensation equal to the costs that Taxi4You has already incurred, with a minimum of 40% of the amount that had to be paid initially.

Extraordinary circumstances include transport of illegal persons or goods, unforeseeable route changes, etc.

If no cancellation has been given, 12 hours before the start, or a no-show, the full amount will be charged.

This article and its provisions apply subject to any conflicting statutory mandatory provision.

In the context of road safety, Taxi4You may in exceptional circumstances opt not to execute the command.

Taxi4You always has the right to refuse a passenger, whether or not in advance, if this would jeopardize road safety and/or if the passenger is in a condition that could get in the way of an orderly ride.

The Customer undertakes to pay this compensation, as well as to indemnify Taxi4You against any fines imposed on it.

It is expected that the Customer informs the passengers of the terms and conditions of Taxi4You, including, of course, the specific rules with regard to the passengers, which are quite self-explanatory.

8. Payment

Consumers must always pay for the order in cash or by payment card, unless explicitly agreed otherwise. Unless otherwise agreed, the Consumer must make the payment before the ride or immediately after the ride has been made.

Companies can opt to pay for the order as is the case with Consumers, but also have the option to pay for the journey by bank transfer after they have received an invoice, unless otherwise agreed.

If an invoice is not paid on time, an administrative cost of 10% is due by operation of law and without any notice of default, as well as a fixed compensation of 15% with a minimum of € 125.00. This clause in no way excludes additional damages. Late payments will be charged first against the increments and then against the principal.
