This allows us reschedule the service based on the company's reservation schedule.
Please note that the Driver cannot wait more than 30 minutes beyond the time indicated on the reservation form. After this time, and without notice to the contrary from the client, the Driver will be considered released from their obligation. The company will consider the reservation as cancelled.

Thus, the Driver expressly reserves the right to refuse any instructions and/or requests from the Client that they judge will compromise the safety of the occupants of the vehicle and/or the vehicle's condition.

This capacity can never be exceeded.

In this case, total or partial non-performance of the service cannot give rise to any compensation for the Client.
The Company is under no obligation to hold luggage or any other objects, property, clothing, effects, etc. left in the Vehicle during and after the Service. Luggage and its contents remain the responsibility of the Client. The Company shall not be held liable for damage and/or loss of luggage during loading or transport.
The Driver may, without consulting or waiting for approval from the Company and without the Company being liable for any compensation, cease the Service in the event of offensive or insulting behavior towards the Driver, as well as in the event that the Client or their guests, employees and agents are in a proven state of inebriation or use of narcotics.

Reminder: The Company shall not be held liable for any delay or missed appointment due to an incomplete or missing address. Therefore, no compensation can be claimed.
