Vehicles will only carry up to the stated amount of passengers which the hirer has designated and agreed with SCCT.  All passengers MUST wear seat belts and remain seated whilst vehicle is in motion.

The hirer is responsible for the conduct of passengers on the vehicle and for any loss or damage incurred.  NO smoking is allowed on any vehicle at any time.  NO food or alcohol is to be consumed on the vehicle and hirer should ensure passengers do not have chewing gum on bus.

SCCT takes pride in the cleanliness of their vehicles and fully expects passengers to respect this.  In the event of the vehicle being left soiled and dirty, SCCT reserve the right to charge a valeting fee of £15.00.  If the hirer has a passenger who has been sick on vehicle, SCCT reserve the right to charge £45.00 for a full valet.

If any passenger is either verbally or physically abusive, the driver has the right to refuse them to travel and if necessary contact the Police.  No refund will be given and you could run the risk of not being allowed to use our services in the future.

The hirer must ensure passengers adhere to collection and departure times.  SCCT reserve the right to charge waiting time after the first 15 minutes at a rate of £10.00 per hour or part thereof.

SCCT cannot be held responsible for failure to reach or leave destinations at a desired time due to bad weather conditions, traffic congestion, or any other matter which is beyond our control.  We reserve the right to cancel any booking due to adverse weather conditions.

SCCT will not be held responsible for the safety and custody of personal belongings, purchases, luggage or any other items left on the vehicle.  Every endeavour will be made if an item has been lost to locate it and if found it is then the hirers responsibility to claim it.  SCCT are not responsible for returning items found, however, we will hold them safely until claimed.

Specific to Airport Transfers:

The hirer should advise SCCT of all correct details and notify us as soon as possible as to any changes.  Particular attention should be made to your return date of arrival back in the U.K. ensuring we have the correct flight number so office staff can check for any delays.

On your return, once you have collected your luggage, please contact your driver (phone number will be given on departure) who will then collect you from the designated spot agreed.  The driver will NOT be permitted to wait at the designated spot for any length of time and you must therefore ensure your party is together for collection.  If the driver incurs costs not already agreed for parking the hirer will incur these charges.

By travelling with us, you are deemed to have read, understood and accepted the above terms and conditions.
