Alternative dates or another transport option will be offered to the hirer. If none is available suitable to both parties, the hire fee will be refunded in full as the exclusive remedy to the hirer who shall have no further claim for any loss or damage whatsoever resulting from the cancellation of the Hire Agreement. In the event of your transport not being available when you arrive for reasons beyond our control (e.g. damage on a previous hire) we reserve the right to substitute a similar transport option, or of better standard. It is unlikely that we will have to make any changes to your booking after it has been confirmed. However, occasionally some changes have to be made. If there is a minor change before you depart we will endeavor to inform you before you leave. No compensation is payable for minor changes.
Our transport and its inventory are insured under a transport insurance policy against loss, damage and third party indemnity. You are expected to take reasonable care but your liability in the event of loss or damage to the transport is limited to the security deposit unless such damage was caused by your negligence or willful damage.
However, hirers are advised that Greysand Shipping Ltd does not carry insurance for personal injury, illness, loss or damage to personal belongings or for cancellation for any reason. Hirers must arrange their own holiday insurance for these risks and ensure that their existing policies on which they wish to rely will cover this activity.
Act of God
In the event that directly and exclusively results from the occurrence of natural causes that could not have been prevented by the exercise of foresight or caution; an inevitable accident, i.e., tornadoes, earthquakes, death, extraordinarily high tides, violent winds, ash cloud and floods. Then providing that the hirer is in resort there will be no refund, as the event will go ahead, although the amount of persons will be refunded. In the event that the main lead name has not managed to arrive due to ash cloud or any of the above then an alternative date will be set and no extra charges will be made.
We accept responsibility for the proven acts or omissions of our staff and suppliers whilst acting within the scope of their duties, except where attributable to any member of the hirer group, an unconnected third party, or an event which we could not, with due care, have reasonably foreseen. Except in the case of death or personal injury any compensation shall be limited to the amount of payment received by us. It is a condition precedent of such acceptance of liability that you follow the procedures for the Notification of complaints set out in the clause below.
If you have a problem during your hire, please inform the transport driver / host immediately so that they can endeavor to put things right. If the problem cannot be resolved, you must contact our office immediately by telephone or by email so that we are given an opportunity to help. If you fail to take any of these steps this will hinder our ability to put the problem right and/or investigate it fully and any right you have to receive compensation will be reduced or completely extinguished.
The driver / host on board during the hire has absolute authority and his/her instructions should be adhered to at all times. The driver / host will comply with all reasonable requests of the hirer but the driver / host will be the sole judge of all matters concerning timings / distance / location and the safety of the transport.
If the hirer fails to comply with the reasonable instructions of the driver / host concerning safety of the transport, the driver may return the transport to the nearest safe venue whereupon the hire will be terminated and the hirer will not be entitled to repayment of any part of the hire fee or any other remedy.
