    If you want to cancel or amend your booking later, you may have to pay cancellation or amendment fees, which are shown below.

  2. Unconfirmed bookings

    Payment is required at the time of booking unless agreed otherwise by both parties.

  4. Our Price Guarantee

    We do change prices from time to time. Prices can go down as well as up and you will be able to determine your up to date price for your chosen transfer prior to confirming your booking.

    100%

    Please note once you have agreed a price and made your booking this is the price you pay. If for any reason the price decreases, you are not entitled to the transfer service at the changed rate.

  7. Our Responsibility

    As Brazil Airport Transfers acts as a booking agent we have no liability for any of the transfer arrangements and in particular any liability for any illness, personal injury, death or loss of any kind, unless caused by our negligence.

    We do inspect our providers vehicles and ensure they are of a high standare as well as being fully insured as required under Brazilian law. However, whilst every care is always taken, you and your property are carried entirely at your own risk and no responsibility can be accepted for loss or damage. Customers are therefore advised to check their own travel insurance.

    In the very unlikely event that you need to make a claim for damages, injury, illness or death arising from your journey, this claim must be brought against the transfer provider and will be under the jurisdiction of the law of Brazil. In this unusual situation we will do our best to support you as our client.

    Please note the transfer provider will always aim to drop and/or collect you as close to your accommodation as possible. In some instances it may not always be possible for the vehicle to take you onto the premises due to circumstances outside of the transfer provider’s control - this is most likely to be due to roadworks or other temporary measures that restrict access and is not a common occurance.

  8. Your Responsibility

    Brazil Airport Transfers and the transfer provider cannot accept responsibility for transfer services not received as a result of incorrect information provided at the time of booking.

    When making your booking please follow the set dates and times as shown on your flight details, this will prevent confusion which may be caused by early morning flights.

    It is also your responsibility to have valid travel documents, such as your passport. If we or our transport partner are fined as a result of you holding incorrect documents, we will ask you to pay this amount.

    We strongly recommend you have sufficient travel insurance for the length of your stay in Brazil.

  9. Special Requests

    Brazil Airport Transfers will always make every effort to meet your requests.

  10. Delayed Arrivals

    Brazil Airport Transfers and the transfer provider will always endeavor to make sure that your transfer service is provided, even when flights are delayed, or are affected by circumstances outside of your control.

    However, please be aware that it is your responsibility to make Brazil Airport Transfers or the transfer provider aware of any delays as it is not always possible to predict and/ or obtain information with regard to such instances, although we will do our best. As a result neither Brazil Airport Transfers nor the transfer provider accepts responsibility for missed transfer services due to delayed, postponed, or other problems affecting flights.

    In the event a return flight is missed owing to a delay with the transfer service which is out of the transfer provider’s control, neither Brazil Airport Transfer or the transfer provider will be responsible for any additional costs incurred nor will compensation be due.

  11. Misbehavior

    We reserve the right to terminate without notice the arrangements of any customer whose behavior, in our opinion, is likely to cause annoyance, distress or danger to other customers or any third party. If you are prevented from traveling because you appear to any person in authority to be unfit to travel, or likely to cause discomfort or disturbance to other passengers, our responsibility for your transfer will cease. Full charges will apply and we will be under no obligation to provide a refund, compensation, or any further assistance.

  12. Indemnity

    When you book a transfer service through Brazil Airport Transfers you accept responsibility for any damage to the transfer vehicle caused by you or a member of your party.

    The transfer provider reserves the right to terminate the service booked, or that of any member of your party, due to your or their misconduct, within the transfer providers reasonable opinion.

    In these circumstances full cancellation charges will then apply and no refund will be given. Furthermore, the transfer provider shall be under no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses you may incur as a result of the service being terminated.

    You agree to indemnify us against any claims (including legal costs) made against us or on behalf of the transfer provider. Finally you are also liable to make a reimbursement to the transfer provider for any damage caused, before you return home.

  13. Disputes

    In the event of any dispute our liability shall not exceed the charge for the transfer service provided. Any litigation will be subject to Brazilian Law.

  14. Complaints Procedure

    If you experience problems with your transfer service whilst in Brazil, you must immediately contact Brazil Airport Transfers or call the transfer provider on the contact number shown on your booking confirmation in order to enable us to have the opportunity to resolve the problem.

    In the event that the matter is not rectified sufficiently you must put your complaint in writing to our Customer Relations Department within 14 days of return of travel. Please note if you submit your complaint later than 14 days of your return, it may not be accepted and the matter will not be investigated.

    Once the Customer Relations Department receives your complaint, they will acknowledge it, the matter will be investigated and you will receive a full written response within 28 days. (Please note the 28 days start from the date of the acknowledgment)

    If you incur additional expenses and you feel these should be paid by Brazil Airport Transfers, we will only consider claims when full invoices or receipts for those expenses are produced. Please note production of these invoices or receipts does not automatically mean we will cover those expenses.
