For a better understanding about how we govern the use of our website, please read these Terms together with our Privacy Policy and Cookie Statement.

These Terms are made up of 2 parts. Part 1 deals mainly with bookings you may make for ground transport with Transport Companies. Part 2 deals generally with our website. You should read both Parts 1 and 2.

By using our website and/or if you make a booking for ground transport with a Transport Company,  you confirm to us that you:

  • are at least 18 years old;
  • have legal capacity to be bound by these Terms;
  • have had sufficient chance to read and understand these Terms; and
  • accept these Terms and that you agree to comply with and agree  and to be bound by them.

If you do not agree accept these Terms, you must stop using the website.

PART 1

WHO IS JAYRIDE?

Jayride.com is a website owned and operated by Jayride Group Limited (“Jayride“, “us“, “we” and “our“), ACN 155 285 528, an Australian company headquartered at 11/55 Clarence St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia.

Our website is an online booking  platform that allows users to gather information on available ground transport companies listed on our website (“Transport Supplier”, “Transport Company”, or “Transport Provider”)’, their transport vehicles, availability, prices, and to make bookings, with a Transport Provider selected by you.

Jayride acts as the agent of each Transport Provider, who is an independent and separate entity to us. Our platform facilitates you making bookings for ground transport services with your chosen Transport Provider. The Transport Provider is responsible for providing its transport services to you and/or any passengers that are part of your booking (“Transport Services”). Jayride does not provide the Transport Services so we recommend that you satisfy yourself as to the efficacy, safety and legality of those services, including any licensing requirements of the relevant jurisdiction in which those services are provided. See further Our Responsibility and Disclaimer

BOOKINGS

Our website allows you to make bookings for ground transport services directly with a Transport Company you choose.

If your booking is made with a Transport Company outside Australia, you understand and agree that your personal information necessary to make your booking will be transferred to the overseas Transport Company in order to service your booking. See our Privacy Policy

 

  • How to make a booking

 

To make a booking, follow the online booking steps, once you have chosen a Transport Company. It is your responsibility to ensure that all the details entered when you make a booking are accurate. Neither we nor the Transport Company is responsible, if you have not provided correct information regarding your trip.. See  Cancellations, Refunds and Changes.

Corrections made after the booking has been confirmed will be considered to be a change to, or a cancellation of, your booking. See Cancellations, for further details.  

By entering your payment details when prompted and clicking ‘confirm payment’, you are entering into an agreement with the Transport Provider–not with us. Please note that, as you are contracting directly with the Transport Provider, you may also be bound by terms and conditions of the Transport Company, which you can request from your Transport Company directly.

Your booking is confirmed once a booking confirmation voucher is generated. It will include your Jayride Booking ID and other details of your booking. A copy of your booking confirmation voucher will be sent to the email address provided at the time of your booking. You may need to present your booking voucher to the driver to board the vehicle. Therefore, we recommend that you print your voucher.

Once your booking is confirmed, your chosen Transport Company will contact you to arrange your Pick-up Departure Time and Meeting Point. The Transport Company may contact you a few hours before your Pick up Departure Time. To avoid last minute difficulties, we recommend that you contact your Transport Company directly to confirm Pick-up Departure Time and Meeting Point prior to your travel day.

 

  • Price and Payment

 

All prices listed on our website are inclusive of taxes, tolls, airport parking, admin and agency fees.

The price also includes 1 checked bag and 1 carry on bag per passenger. See Baggage allowance for more details.  The transfer details on your booking page will list other features (if any) that are included in the price. Any extras or other requests you make, may incur additional costs that must be paid directly to the Transport Company.

The credit or debit card you use to pay the price for the booking will be charged by Jayride immediately at the time of confirming your booking.

The price may be displayed in your preferred currency and is estimated based on the current exchange rates. Final payment will be settled in the currency of choice of the Transport Company. The currency will be displayed on the booking details page. You may be charged a fee by your bank even if the charge is processed in the original currency of your payment method.

Refunds of the price paid for a booking are permitted only in certain situations–please read Cancellations Changes and Refunds. Note that fees or charges added by your card provider are not refundable by us or the Transport Company. You will need to contact your card provider.

From time to time we run promotions and discounts. The majority of our discounts are visible on our website. These discounts are not automatically added to the price and so, you will need to activate them by clicking the relevant the link. Offers are for limited times only and may be subject to certain conditions.

 

  • Baggage allowance

 

Each passenger is entitled to 1 checked standard (size) and 1 carry-on bag. Extra baggage exceeding permitted dimensions (and other items such as golf bags, skis etc) must be declared at the time of booking and may result in additional fees/charges payable to the Transport Company. Extra baggage  or baggage exceeding standard dimensions are subject to baggage hold space availability and your booking may be declined if the Transport Company is unable to accommodate them. You may be required to upgrade your vehicle type.

Passengers will be liable for all expenses incurred for excess baggage and other items not declared at the time of booking and the Transport Company may decline to service your booking. See also Special requests or requirement

 

  • Special requests or requirements

 

All special requests are subject to the ability of the Transport Company to meet those requests. Any special requests will be passed on to the Transport Company. We cannot guarantee that any special request will be met by the Transport Company. We recommend you contact the Transport Company directly before your Pick-up Departure Time to confirm your special requirements. Extra fees may apply, and if so, you will need to pay them directly to your Transport Company. Note the following about certain special requests:

 

  • Child passengers and child seats

 

All infants and children count as passengers and must be included in the total number of passengers at the time of the booking. Children are 14 years and below.

Child/infant seats are not automatically added to the booking. It is your responsibility to request a child/infant seat at the time of the booking. Some Transport Companies do not provide child/infant seats and so you should check this with the Transport Company. Where they are available, they are subject to the Transport Company’s availability and additional fees may apply, and if they do apply you must pay them to the Transport Company.

If you wish to bring your own child seat, click the option BYO Child Seat and select the child age and child seat type. Please check with your Transport Company if your seat is compatible with the vehicle. Neither us nor the Transport Company is responsible if your child seat is not compatible with the vehicle.

 

  • Disabled or special needs passengers

 

At present, we cannot guarantee that vehicles of all Transport Companies listed on our website are equipped to provide appropriate access to persons with disabilities (including wheelchair access). If you or any of the passengers travelling has any medical condition or disability that may affect your transfer, please contact us at Contact Support before you make your booking in order to let our team know what your special needs/requirements are.

CANCELLATIONS, REFUNDS AND CHANGES

 

  • Cancellations by you 

Cancellations can be made directly on our website by visiting Manage my Booking and clicking “Cancel my Booking”. Please, ensure that you receive a reply email from us confirming that your booking is cancelled. Otherwise Contact Support to cancel your booking. Your booking is not considered cancelled until we confirm your cancellation by email. The time of cancellation is considered to be the time we confirm your cancellation request. See Refunds section below.

 

  • Refunds

You are entitled to receive a 100% refund on your booking with no cancellations fee, so long as the  cancellation is made more than 48 hours before to your Pick-up Departure Time.

You are not entitled to any refund on your booking, if your cancellation is made 48 hours or less before your Pick-up Departure Time or if you do not use the services for any reason other than due to the fault of the Transport Company–see No show by you and/or being late and No show or pick up due to events beyond control of Transport Company

Return transfers have a separate booking ID and so if you wish to cancel both bookings, you need to manage them separately. If you cancel only one transfer and not the other, you will not be eligible for a refund for the non-cancelled transfer.

All refunds will be processed as quickly as possible. It can take up to 7 business days for the funds to appear in your account. Please note that fees added and charged by your card provider are not refundable by Jayride. You should contact your bank or credit card issuing company directly. If you have not received your refund within 7 business days, please Contact Support

 

  • Changes requested by you

If you want to change a confirmed booking, you can change it at any time more than 24 hours before your Pick-up Departure Time. You may request the change directly with your chosen Transport Company, or by contacting us via  Contact Support by filling in the form.

If you want to change your Booking 24 hours or less before your Pick-up Departure Time, you must contact  the Transport Company direct. In this case, your requested change will be subject to the Transport Company’s terms.

Your booking is not considered to be changed until the Transport Company confirms the change. The time of the change to your booking is considered to be the time that the Transport Company confirms the change to you.

If you change your booking more than 24 hours before your Pick-up Departure Time, and this results in the total price of your newly changed booking:

  • Remaining the same as the price you paid for the booking you changed, you will not need to pay anything extra for changing your booking
  • Being more than the amount you paid for the booking you changed, you must pay the increased amount directly to your Transport Company
  • Being less than the amount you paid for the booking you changed, you are not eligible for any refund, whether partial or otherwise, and your fee for the change is deemed to be equal to the difference in price. Instead, you should consider following the procedure to cancel your booking and making a new booking.
  • Cancellations or changes made by the Transport Company

If, in the unlikely event, your Transport Company cancels or needs to make a major change to your booking, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible after we become aware of this. In this case  you will be entitled to a full refund of the price paid by you for the affected part of the trip and we will have no further liability to you.

MEETING THE TRANSPORT COMPANY

 

  • Meeting place and time

 

It is the responsibility of all passengers to wait for the transfer at the location detailed in your booking confirmation voucher, or as otherwise arranged and agreed between you and your Transport Company. You should be at that location at least 15 minutes before the Pick-up Departure Time agreed with, or notified by, the Transport Company.

 

  • No show by you and/or being being late

 

If you do not use the Transport Services (for example you are a “no show”) and you have not cancelled your Booking more than 48 hours prior to your pick-up departure time, you will not be entitled to a refund.

Some Transport Companies charge extra waiting time and, if they do, you will be responsible for paying those charges to the Transport Company. If you believe that you may be delayed you must contact your Transport Company as soon as possible. Alternative pickup arrangements are subject to the availability of the  Transport Company.

 

  • No show or failed pick up by Transport Company

 

If the Transport Company does not arrive to pick you up and has not contacted you about this before your Pick-up Departure Time, you should contact your Transport Company as soon as possible. If you cannot contact the Transport Company, make sure you do not miss your flight or other connections and make alternative transport arrangements. Notify Jayride using our online form as soon as possible with evidence that your driver did not pick you up at the designated pick-up area. If this is due to the fault of the Transport Company or the driver you will be entitled to a full refund.

 

  • No show or pick up due to events beyond control of Transport Company

 

If the Transport Company does not pick you up for any reason that is not due to the fault of the Transport Company, the driver or is otherwise due to a reason outside the reasonable control of the Transport Company or the driver, or if you are delayed for any reason, this may result in the Transport Company (or driver) not being able to service your booking. Examples where this is not due to the fault of the Transport Company or the driver  include your flight or other transport being delayed or canceled, missed flights or other missed transport connections, traffic or road conditions or incidences, industrial action, adverse weather conditions etc.

If you are delayed, you must contact the Transport Company as soon as possible. Failure to contact your Transport Company will be considered a Passenger No-show and you will not be eligible for a refund.

 

  • Travel Insurance

 

We recommend that you travel with your own travel insurance which is adequate for your needs.

DISPUTES AND COMPLAINTS

At the time of your travel, if you experience any problems in connection with the Transport Services, you must contact your Transport Provider before contacting us.

After your travel time, please Contact Support and submit your complaint, providing with us as much information and evidence you can within 28 days after the arranged pick-up departure time. We will initiate an investigation and check the information with your chosen Transport Company.

Failure to notify us or the Transport Company concerned of your complaint as quickly as possible may affect our ability to investigate the matter. Please note, that we will act only in matters that are under our scope according to these Terms and Conditions.
