STRESS-FREE TRAVEL

Getting to and from the airport can be stressful enough on a good day. Taxis are reliable but don’t have premium style and comfort. Rideshare can vary greatly in both quality and comfort.

At Caprice Cars we can guarantee a consistent style and above all reliability. Our high quality and discreet services will always be respectful, showing high class during your ride with us.

Note: Caprice Cars (or any of our drivers) will not be held liable in the event we are unable to retrieve and return your goods. Our drivers do a quick spot check to ensure items aren't left in the vehicle(s) but the responsibility of the item(s) belong to the individual that brought them into the car and not the driver and/or Caprice Cars.

What are your cancellation fees?

Should you need to cancel a car service:

Should our driver be on their way or is waiting at the agreed location when we are advised of the cancellation this will be charged in full. All cancellations will be charged at our discretion.

Point to point cancellations are:

If we are advised of the cancellation with:

Less than 2 hours’ notice - 100% of total fare cost
Between 2 hours’ and 6 hours’ - 75% of total fare cost
More than 6 hours’ but less than 24 hours’ - 50% of fare cost
More than 24 hour notice – No fee charged

If you are unable to locate the driver and do not notify us, you will be charged as a ‘no show’ and liable for the full fare cost.

Winery & hourly hire tours cancellations are:

Less than 48 hours’ notice - $300 charge
More than 48 hours’ but less than 72 hours’ notice - $250 charge
More than 72 hours’ notice – No charge except for the initial $100 booking fee

Note: Charges other than initial $100 deposits may be applied to any future bookings within 12 (twelve) months of original booking date.

Wedding cancellations:

If wedding transfers are cancelled less than thirty (30) days before the set date $260 (two hundred & sixty dollars) or the full amount whichever is the lesser will be charged for EACH car that was booked for that date. In the event of a change of date and rebooked with Caprice Cars (subject to car and driver availability), in this instance only are we willing to apply these charges to any future bookings regardless of the service booked within twelve (12) months of the initial date booked.

These charges are in addition to any deposits made when securing your booking and cancellations will be charged at our discretion.
We request a non-refundable or transferable deposit as this secures the driver and vehicle(s) for your chosen date and/or time. Due to this we are unable to take other bookings for that vehicle and as a result may have turned other work away.

 

Do you charge wait times?

When our services have been booked for a specific time, Caprice Cars offers a complimentary wait time of 5 (five) minutes when servicing your booking. Any additional waiting time after the complimentary wait time will be charged per below and include GST.

$2.00 per minute after complimentary 5 minutes up to 30 minutes
$3.00 per minute after 30 minutes and up to 1 hour inclusive
$4.00 per minute after 1 hour has passed and will be charged from the original time booked including the 5-minute grace period in addition to the original booking charge.

Wait times are charged due to the 'flow on' effect it has with bookings following yours. If it looks like our drivers are going to be late for their next job, this means we need to 'off load' their next booking to another driver putting stress on our office staff to locate another driver (if it is at all possible). This in turn means that they won't be paid for the job they had previously locked in hence the charges above to somewhat compensate them for this.

We are sure as a paying customer you would expect our drivers to be on time for your booking, hence the courtesy of being on time for others is appreciated!

For any transfers booked after 10:30pm we allow 5 (five) mins grace period then $3.00 per minute until the pickup has been made. Note: This does not apply in the event of any delayed airport pickups.
For South Australian public holidays above wait times are doubled. We will not be held liable for any missed flights etc at any time as this is the client’s responsibility to ensure adequate time has been allowed when making the booking.

Caprice Cars requests a minimum 2 (two) hours for ANY amendments made to bookings to avoid additional charges which will be made and charged at our discretion. Should you wish to ‘amend’ your agreed pickup time(s) we will do our best to fulfill this for you but may not be able to do so if it clashes with another booking. Our office (or chauffeur) will advise should this be the case and whether we can come to an agreed alternative pickup time. Should we not be able to accommodate this we will need to charge you for the booked transfer regardless of whether the trip was fulfilled.

No shows are charged full transfer costs as the cancellation fee

Should a refund need to be issued, Caprice Cars may retain any other fees charged. These costs may be charged either entirely or partially, regardless of whether travel has commenced with Caprice Cars

Passengers who are aged 11 (eleven) years or under, must be accompanied by either a parent or guardian, the only exception is if prior to transport there has been an agreement confirming the drop off point and advising the details of the adult who will be collecting the minor. Before we can release the minor, we ask the collecting adult to show proof of identification which may include our chauffeurs’ taking photos or copies of other identification for this proof.
