The term transfer implies transportation of passengers from a pickup location to the drop off location, and is driven in accordance with the reservation which has been made by the customer.
Prices of transfers are based upon the distance between the initial and the destination, number of passengers, type of vehicle and market conditions. Depending on the number of passengers, prices are formed into 4 groups (1-3 passengers, 4-8 passengers and 9-14 passengers & 15-20 passengers).
Prices for individual routes are available on our website. If the website does not have the price of the requested route, then the customer is to email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide a quotation for that route.
Passengers will be met at the agreed pickup location by a driver. The driver will drive the passenger to the agreed drop-off address or to the nearest possible location accessible by vehicle.
The Customer is required to sign a transfer agreement which is a legal obligation in Croatia and transfer prices are per vehicle and not per person.
Personal luggage is included in the price. Standard Luggage is considered one large suitcase and one hand luggage per person. If the quantity of luggage is larger than standard luggage, it is necessary to inform us prior to the transfer so we can send a vehicle of suitable size for that transfer.
We are not responsible for missing items or any damage to fragile items contained in the luggage of clients.
We are not obligated to transport any extra luggage that was not declared in a reservation if there is not enough room in the vehicle.
We are not responsible for the content of luggage. We nor any of our contracted or sub-contracted drivers will accept responsibility for luggage loss or damage.
We and/or our contracted or sub-contracted drivers have the right to refuse any client or to make the journey due to the client having excess luggage which would result in the vehicle being unsafe whilst in motion.
