Your reservation is a contract between you and the Transporter. The task of Elite Transfer is to facilitate the conclusion of this contract. Elite Transfer does not accept any responsibility for any mistakes made by the Transporter.

Elite Transfer reserves the right to refuse any transfer request. In this case, you will receive an e-mail to be notified of this event, while you will be refunded the full amount (in euros) or you may be offered an alternative service.

Reservation and service process:
During the booking process it is important to check that the information you provide are correct. If any information is incorrect, you should contact us immediately, as this information is provided to the Transporter in order to confirm the transfer service. The Transporter will use this information for your boarding and transportation as close to your destination as possible, considering the characteristics of the vehicle and the natural access conditions to the requested destination.
If due to special circumstances (for example infrastructure projects, traffic conditions, etc.) your direct boarding on / getting off the vehicle is not possible, the Transporter will stop at the nearest possible boarding on / getting off point. Also, if the shortest and most convenient route is closed due to an accident, weather conditions, etc., and after customer’s request, the Transporter has to follow a different, longer route to reach his destination, additional costs are likely to arise.
Immediately after the successful payment, you will receive a receipt and confirmation of payment via e-mail. The receipt of the payment is not a confirmation of your booking but serves to confirm that your request is under elaboration by the Transporter. Once the Transporter accepts your request, you will receive an email with your reservation as a booking form. This will be the official contract between you and the Transporter. You must present this form to the driver at the beginning of your trip. The Transporter may refuse the transfer if your booking form does not appear. Once your transfer is complete, you will receive a service receipt attached to an e-mail within 24 hours.
Cost and payment methods:
Prices for the transfer services as well as payment procedures are displayed on our website. The current price of each service is the price that appears on our website at the date and time of your reservation. Once your booking is confirmed, you waive your right to pay the fare listed on the taximeter during your transfer.
In the event that an error has occurred and the cost of the service is higher than stated in your reservation, you will be notified so that either your reservation will be canceled (refunded) or will be adjusted so that the price will be correct.
There are three options for payment. You can pay by credit or debit card, via PayPal or cash at the time of your booking or upon arrival. The cards we accept are defined in the booking form on our website. Our card issuers may charge some shipping costs that you have to undertake when you make your payment. All prices listed are per vehicle and not per person.

In case the change in the reservation leads to a higher price (different destination, vehicle size, etc.), you will be notified by message about the additional costs, as well as about the method of payment of the additional amount. If modifying your reservation reduces the total amount, the difference will be refunded.
