HYFLY will provide you with the Booking Services with reasonable care and expertise.

HYFLY may present you with an anticipated travel time for your journey while providing the Booking Service, but this is solely for guidance. It is your obligation to allow enough time for the journey, and you should factor in extra time for delays and unexpected events if the journey is critical, especially if subsequent connections and/or appointments are at risk of being missed.

When making a reservation, you must specify the appropriate car size for the number of guests and luggage. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to transport excessive amounts of luggage. Please keep in mind that a child, regardless of age, counts as one passenger.

If you or a member of your group requires a wheelchair, please note this when making your reservation. Please be advised that, depending on availability, a vehicle capable of transporting a wheelchair user may have a lengthier wait time. If you would like to request a specific vehicle type and/or Driver for your Booking, we will do our best to meet your demands, but we cannot always promise that they will be met. If the request cannot be fulfilled, we will notify you at the time of booking.

All booking has to be made on website and pay by card. If you/ or our booking system unable to process your card for any technical reason, we may be able to assist you with over the phone. We shall collect any payments made by credit card on behalf of the Driver.

We supplied you with a fixed fare at the time of Booking, based on the information you provided at the time of Booking. The Driver must provide the Driving Services for the specified Fare if the initial Booking request does not include any additional drop-offs, pick-ups, route or destination changes, or additional waiting time (save for airport pick-ups, which we allow for a 30-minute wait period as standard). You understand and agree that if such changes occur after a Booking has been made, you will be responsible for directly negotiating the new Fare with us/the Driver.

During the ride, you are responsible for the behavior of all passengers in the vehicle. In the odd event that the vehicle is soiled by any passenger, you will be charged the applicable soiling fee of the local authority under whom the Driver is licensed to pay cleaning costs.

If your journey originates from airport, you must give us with all flight information at the time of booking. Unless you specify otherwise, we will enter the terminal 30 minutes after your aircraft arrives to give you enough time to clear customs and retrieve your luggage. If you are not present 30 minutes after your Driver has entered the terminal, the Driver will charge you at usual rates for waiting. If you’d like to arrange a different pick-up time or method (meet and greet or call on arrival), please let us know when you make your reservation. HYFLY will make every effort to check for airline delays before the Driver departs for the airport, but it is not obligated to do so. The Driver will be dispatched two hours early to the stated pick-up time for pre-booked airport pick-ups. We have the right to charge a cancellation fee if you cancel the Booking within two hours of your scheduled pick-up.

If you plan a return trip and bring your own kid seat, the driver who completes your booking will store it for the return trip.

In general, journeys within Cambridge’s immediate vicinity are dispatched up to twenty minutes before their scheduled arrival time.

HYFLY may be forced to cancel a Booking before the scheduled pick-up date owing to reasons beyond our control. If this happens, we will give you as much notice as possible and issue a refund for any money you have already paid.

If an occurrence beyond our control affects our ability to provide Booking Services to you, we will notify you as soon as feasible and will take steps to minimize the impact of the delay. We will not be liable for any delays caused by the event. If we follow this procedure, but if there is a significant danger of delay, you may contact us to terminate the booking and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not received.

Our liability is restricted to loss or damage caused solely by the Booking Services. We will not be liable for any damages you incur as a result of the Driving Services, and you acknowledge and confirm that any losses you incur must be sought against the Driver. Please contact us if you have any complaints, concerns, or issues with the Driving Services, and we will do our best to help you resolve these issues with the Driver.

We are responsible for any loss or damage you experience that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or failing to use reasonable care and skill if we fail to comply with these Terms, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or harm is foreseeable if it is either evident that it would occur or if both, we and you understood it might occur at the time the contract was created, for example, if you discussed it with us during the Booking process.
