Drivers Terms and Conditions

General

The term Cabmania® or ‘us’ or ‘we’ refers to the owner of the website whose registered office is The Pinnacle, Central Court, Station Way, Crawley, RH10 1JH, UK. Cabmania Limited company registration number is 07044000 in England. The term ‘you’ refers to the user or viewer of our website.

Cabmania Limited ("Cabmania®") provides a market place on the internet for properly registered hackney carriages & private hire operators (“taxis” or “taxi companies”) to offer their services to the general public. The general public are able to post details of journeys they wish to make. Taxis and taxi companies are then able to post bids for those journeys. Once a bid is accepted by the customer, the driver/company is provided with the customer’s details in order to contact the customer direct to confirm the ride details.

Cabmania® accepts no responsibility for any loss occasioned as a result of reliance placed upon any parts of the contents of this website and makes no warranty as to the accuracy of any such information or content.

The content of the pages is subject to change without notice. You should check the pages from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.

Note: Cabmania® is not a provider of taxi or private hire services to the general public & accordingly is not registered as an operator of taxi or private hire services. The contract for the provision of transport services is between you and your chosen taxi or taxi company. Payments for journeys are made to your taxi driver and not to Cabmania®.

Introduction

Please read these terms and conditions carefully before posting details of your proposed journey, as by doing so, you agree to be legally bound by these terms and conditions. After you accept a bid on our website you will also enter into a contract with the taxi driver or Taxi Company, and you will be bound by their terms and conditions of booking.

If you do not wish to be bound by these terms and conditions then you are unable to post a proposed journey on our website.

Placing details of a journey

You must follow the procedures set out on our website to place your ride details; this information will be relayed to taxi drivers and taxi companies to place their bid. We do not guarantee that a taxi driver or taxi company will bid for every journey request posted.

You will need to choose which bid you wish to accept for each journey you post on the website. When you have made your selection, we will send you details of the driver (name and contact details) by online electronic means to the e-mail address you provided when registering and by text message to your mobile phone. We will also provide your name and contact details to the driver direct so that he can contact you and confirm the journey details.

If there are any changes to the journey details (such as time, date, number of passengers and so on), it is your responsibility to contact the driver and notify him of these changes on the contact number provided. Cabmania® is not responsible for any charges you may have to pay if you fail to comply with this condition.

Prices and payment

The price for the booking will be the price you selected by clicking on the “Accept” button on our website. Payment is made direct to your chosen taxi driver and not to us.

Lowest / cheapest price guaranteed meaning we will do our best to deliver as many quotes as we can for you to choose the cheapest one.

The driver agrees that he will adhere to the price quoted, save in exceptional circumstances. For instance, if he is meeting you off a flight and the flight is delayed, compensation for that delay and additional waiting time may be payable by you, and should be negotiated direct with the driver. Cabmania® is not responsible for any increased charges you may have to pay in these or similar circumstances.

Performance

We require all our registered taxi drivers and taxi companies to comply with minimum standards as to the quality and level of service provided. This includes using all reasonable efforts to ensure that you are collected from your collection point at the time requested, and that any special requests you have made are complied with. However, we will not be liable for any loss or costs you suffer or incur through any reasonable or unavoidable delays and it is your responsibility to ensure that you book the taxi to collect you in plenty of time. Further, we will not be responsible for any losses you suffer (including for example any missed flight) due to your failure to allow sufficient time for your journey.

After the conclusion of your journey, we ask that you rate your driver and the service he provided on the website. Drivers’ average ratings appear next to their bids, and this is useful feedback both for ourselves and for future customers. However, as the ratings reflect our customers’ opinions, we take no responsibility for their accuracy.

Cancellation

Any cancellations of bookings should be made direct with your chosen the taxi driver or taxi company, and are subject to their cancellation policies.

Complaints

If you encounter a problem with the service provided, please take this up with the taxi driver or taxi company direct. You can of course also reflect this in the rating you give the driver.

Licences

Cabmania® requires all registered drivers and private hire companies to ensure that their hackney carriage drivers or private hire operators licences are kept valid and up to date. It is also part of our requirements that vehicles are roadworthy, taxed, licensed and insured. If you discover that any of these requirements are not complied with in a particular case, please alert us immediately. It is our policy in those circumstances to terminate the driver’s subscription immediately. Please note however that we cannot be held responsible or liable if our requirements are not adhered to as these are matters beyond our direct control.

Liability

We accept responsibility for death, injury or illness caused by the negligence of our employees whilst acting within the scope of or in the course of their employment. Please note however that we will not be liable for any injury, illness or death or consequent losses suffered by you or any member of your party where such injury, illness or death was not caused by lack of reasonable care or skill on our part. We will only pay you such damages as are applicable under English law.

In particular Cabmania® will not be liable to you for any loss caused by any failure of our server, Internet problems, the crashing of our web site or any similar reason where such failure is occasioned by any cause beyond Cabmania®’s reasonable control, including war, insurrection, fire, flood, earthquake, strikes, lock-outs, or similar cause.

Save as provided above, we accept no liability arising out of the performance of the service, which is at all times the responsibility of the taxi driver or taxi company concerned.

In any event, save for liability in respect of death, injury or illness, the amount of our liability to you shall be limited to the cost of the journey or £100, whichever is higher.
