Days of availability vary depending on the route.  You will be notified by email if the shared option isn't available, and a full refund will be given.  For all shuttle & shared transfers pick-up times are subject to change, therefore please call us 24 hours before each transfer to reconfirm your pick-up time, on:0033 450 377 127.

Ticketing
The booking confirmation sent to The Lead Passenger by email is your ticket. The Lead Passenger must print out this email as proof of purchase. The printed ticket must be shown to the transfer driver on arrival and on the return journey.

Missed or Delayed Flights
If a missed or delayed flight causes you to be late for your scheduled, private transfer there will be an additional charge applied for waiting time if the flight is delayed by more than 1 hour after the flight's scheduled arrival time.  This extra charge will need to be paid by you, in cash, direct to the driver, and before the vehicle's departure.
In the case of shared and shuttle transfers where your flight is delayed up to 1 hour after the flight's scheduled flight arrival time you will be transferred onto the next available shared or shuttle transfer.  In cases where there is not another scheduled shared or shuttle transfer service for that day you will be transferred onto the first available shared or shuttle transfer the following day.  In cases where the next available shared or shuttle transfer is not a service direct to your chosen resort TI will not be held responsible for any extra costs incurred for any additional transfers to the chosen resort due to delayed flights.
If it is known that the flight will be delayed you must phone TI immediately whereby every endeavour will be made to locate a suitable, alternative transfer for you and or your party, although this cannot be guaranteed.  In the event that a suitable alternative transfer cannot be found you can then choose to arrange a taxi from the airport for yourself.  (In this situation it is recommended that you obtain a written receipt for the cost of the journey from the taxi driver for your own insurance purposes or to give to the airline for reimbursement.)

Our Waiver Fee for Delayed Flights
Due to a delayed flight, which causes you to be late for your scheduled transfer:
Transfer Intelligence offers an optional Waiver Fee for delayed flights ONLY.  This one-off waiver fee covers any extra waiting time charges caused by delayed flight for up to a maximum of 5 hours. Please note that this is for ONE designated flight only, and does not cover multiple flights.  If your group is arriving on more than 1 flight the waiting-time waiver will  automatically cover the last flight landing, unless otherwise requested at the time of booking.  Please note that this only covers DELAYED flights into the same scheduled airport, and at the same scheduled flight arrival time.  It does NOT cover diverted flights to a different airport or delays caused by lost or delayed luggage. Our waiver fee does NOT cover cancelled flights, or flights re-scheduled for a different time, or flights delayed due to strikes.  If your flight is delayed for more than 5 hours, the lead passenger will need to pay for any waiting-time charges after the first 5 hours, until they meet with their driver.  This extra cost will need to be paid in cash direct to the driver before the vehicle's departure.

Cancelled Flights
If the flight is cancelled for any reason, this comes under the heading of ' Events beyond our control'.  TI will not pay compensation for any events beyond our control.  Please check your personal travel insurance for cancelled flights.

Events within our control
If TI fail for any reason within their control to transfer you from your pre-arranged pick-up to your pre-arranged destination and you are forced to seek an alternative taxi transfer, any reimbursement made shall be no more than the original ticketed cost.  Make sure that you request a written receipt from the taxi driver & proof of payment for insurance purposes.

Events beyond our control – Force Majeure
TI endeavours to carry its passengers safely and comfortably to their chosen destination with as little inconvenience as possible.  However, TI will not pay compensation for any events beyond our control which include:  War, civil disturbances, terrorist activity, vandalism, industrial disputes, technical problems with transport, closed or congested airports, natural or nuclear disasters, cancelled flights, fire, severe weather conditions, strikes, accidents causing delays to your transport, compliance with police requests, unforeseen traffic delays, problems caused by other customers, other circumstances affecting passenger safety and any other similar event.  TI will only be liable for any reasonable losses arising directly out of a breach of contract, in such cases TI's liability shall be limited to £500 per passenger, this excludes loss or damage of luggage and personal possessions.  If any luggage or personal possessions are lost or damaged, where TI were found to be liable, the maximum amount we will pay is £50 per person affected. The Lead Passenger and other party members are advised to check their own travel insurance.  We then request that you transfer your rights to us so that, if necessary, we can claim back from our providers any payments we make to you. The Lead Passenger must make sure that all items of luggage belonging to its party are labelled correctly with names and resort destination/s.

Cancellations & 'No Shows'
The Lead Passenger may cancel the confirmed ticketed booking in writing by email or fax. Cancellations must be made at least 14 days before the time of travel.  The monies paid by The Lead Passenger can be applied to a future booking or TI will refund your monies minus a 50 € per booking administration fee.  Any confirmed ticketed booking cancelled within the 14 days before the time of travel will lose all of their monies. No shows will be charged at full rate.

Changes to the Booking
The Lead Passenger can make changes to the booking in writing by email or fax, quoting the booking reference number and the changes required. If you require to increase the number of passengers within your party, you must do this at least 3 days before the time of travel, to enable TI to confirm and agree the allocation of a seat and extra charges with yourselves. The rate per person may be different from the rate previously quoted.  If an extra vehicle is required, TI will advise you on the most cost-effective transfer available.  Should you wish to change either one or all of the following to your booking:  Airport, flight time, travel dates, destination/ drop-off point, pick-up point or numbers in party, the following applies: If TI are informed at least 14 days before the original time of travel and within 7 days of the new time of travel, TI will endeavour to re-arrange your transfer for you if at all possible.  However this cannot be guaranteed and is done so at the discretion of TI.  New quotations of costs incurred for changes will be submitted by TI and agreed by you before the new booking is ticketed. ANY changes to bookings will be subject to a €20 administration charge (or sterling equivalent) per booking, plus any credit card charges. Changes within 7 days of the date of travel will incur a €50 charge.

Key Collections & Multiple drop-offs/ pick-up
Please note that if you are collecting keys for your accommodation, or if you request more than 1 specified drop-off or pick-up point the Lead Passenger will be subject to additional waiting-time charges. These additional charges must be paid either by credit card or direct to your driver before the end of your transfer/s taking place.

Resort address
Please note that if you do not submit a full resort address to us we cannot guarantee that we will be able to drop you off at your door. It is your responsibility to check accessibility with the property owner, especially when travelling by minibus or coach.  If the transfer takes longer than scheduled due to lack or miss information, the lead passenger will be subject to additional waiting-time charges.  These additional charges must be paid either by credit card or direct to your driver before the end of your transfer/s taking place.

Transfer times to and from popular ski resorts
Please note that if you are travelling to or from a popular route on Saturdays or Holiday times your transfer time may take longer than the 'usual' transfer time allocated by our automated system.  You will be notified by email (before you travel) or by telephone or SMS (whilst on holiday) if your return pick-up needs to be brought forward to an earlier time.  Please note that during peak days  the main roads connecting to and from the ski resorts are extremely busy and therefore if your scheduled pick-up time falls on a peak day  we may re-schedule to collect you earlier.  Please note that your return pick-up time may be brought forward on any day of the week if there is bad weather or heavy traffic. 
If you make alternative arrangements separately with your driver and do not inform TI of your transfer changes, then TI cannot be held responsible for any misunderstandings that may occur.  If you refuse to be collected earlier, TI has the right to cancel your booking without a refund.

Baggage Allowance
Each passenger will be permitted 1 large Suitcase or Holdall. Please Note: If you are carrying skis, snowboards, golf bags or bikes additional supplements may be required, and you will be notified of any supplements before the correct-sized vehicle is scheduled for you. If excess baggage needs additional transportation including trailers, The Lead Passenger will be liable for the extra costs* incurred.  If you have chosen a Helicopter Transfer these allocations will differ, as luggage space is limited.  Each Approved Helicopter provider has its own guidelines on luggage allowance.  Ask TI for more details.  The Lead Passenger must make sure that all items of luggage belonging to its party are labelled correctly with names and destination.

Delays in Transfer
TI will endeavour to ensure that the transfer vehicle(s) arrives on time to collect you and your party and reaches its destination on time.  TI will not incur any liability whatsoever in the event of any delay due to causes beyond its control.  If your transfer is delayed more than 30 minutes from your scheduled flight arrival time, please call TI immediately for an update on the situation.
