General

DK Limos is a service of the DK Airport Service, (hereinafter “DK Limos”). These terms and conditions for DK Limos are an integral part of any agreement made with DK Limos with regards to the DK Limos services.

Furthermore, additional conditions of DK Limos apply, which for example result from the offers and price lists of DK Limos. The current terms and conditions shall apply. These are available here on our website for users of DK Limos in their current version. They are applicable in the version which is valid at the time the contract is concluded. Differing, opposing or supplementary General Terms and Conditions, contract, use, payment or other conditions of the user shall be hereby objected to by DK Limos; such user conditions shall only be an integral part of the agreement to the extent that DK Limos has explicitly consented to their validity in writing.

DK Limos forwards requests of the user to an independently licensed limousine service provider for commercial passenger transportation. DK Limos does not supply temporary employees.

The user is not entitled to assign claims from the contractual relationship without the explicit written consent of DK Limos to third parties.

Formation of the contract

The user submits a binding booking request by filling in the booking form and completes the booking process by clicking on the “confirm booking” button. Before submitting the booking, the user may change, correct, alter and view the data at any time via the buttons “next” and “back”. The booking request can only be issued and transmitted if the user clicks on the “Accept Terms and Conditions of DK Limos” button.

DK Limos then sends the user an automatic confirmation by e-mail, in which the booking is displayed again. The automatic confirmation e-mail documents that the users booking request has been received by DK Limos, it does not constitute an acceptance of the booking request.

The contract between DK Limos and the customer or the limousine service provider is concluded by making a booking request by the user and the assigning of the order to a limousine service provider by DK Limos.

Content of the contract

The transportation service is derived from the booking confirmation by DK Limos. The prices for the rides apply for a start address and a one-way ride. Additional stopovers are subject to an additional fee according to the current price structure. The rates for hourly or daily bookings are based on the requested time period. The price listed on the confirmation includes the amount of luggage stated in the booking form. For excess baggage and transport of animals additional fees will be charged.

The number of passengers may vary and is dependent on stature and sense of comfort of the passengers. The maximum amount of passengers and luggage stated is therefore non-binding and can only be guaranteed under favorable terms. The chauffeur has the right not to accept passengers if this is required due to space and safety conditions.

Subsequent spontaneous changes of the tour by the customer are possible in general and lead to changed compensation of the tour. If the customer is not the passenger the right of spontaneous changes of the tour switches to the passenger.

Compensation and Payment

The price specified in the booking confirmation is a binding fixed price including all taxes, however excluding tips. The guaranteed reservation price displayed in the booking procedure is calculated from the chosen vehicle class, the distance or the amount of hours, the lead time, the pick up time, and the pick up location. Further special requests such as stopovers, oversize luggage, child safety seats, etc, cannot be guaranteed and may be chargeable. In case of spontaneous changes (distance or amount of hours) the price for the actual total distance or hours (once a half hour has started it can be invoiced, i.e. starting with the first additional minute time will be rounded up to a half hour) will be calculated and charged after completion of the ride in accordance with the current price structure. If the route is shorter than the originally booked distance or number of hours, the original amount will be charged.

In the case of transfers there are no surcharges for waiting times up to 15 minutes. Additional waiting time of over 15 minutes caused by self-inflicted passenger behavior will be charged per minute with a part of the hourly booking prices of the particular business district and vehicle category plus the applicable VAT. This does not apply to flight or train delays for which the customer is not culpable. In general, waiting time starts with the provided pickup time. If your ride starts at the airport, please allow for sufficient time after landing to cross the airport and collect your checked luggage. Waiting times at the baggage claim are therefore self-inflicted waiting times and have to be taken into consideration in the period of time between arrival time and pickup time, otherwise additional costs may occur. In the case of flight delays or earlier flights the new pickup time results from the actual arrival time plus the planned period of time between the planned arrival time and the original pickup time.

In the case of hourly bookings surcharges for additional miles (that are the miles exceeding the conventional miles already included per hour and destination) are charged. The additional miles price originates at the distance based prices of the booked vehicle category and destination plus the applicable VAT.

Cancelation and rebooking

In the case of transfer rides a cancelation or rebooking is free of charge if the driver has not yet set off towards the pickup location (the customer receives a notification as soon as the chauffeur has departed) and / or more than one hour is left until the booked pickup time. The total fare will be charged for cancelation or rebooking, if the driver however already set off towards the pickup location and / or less than one hour is left until the booked pickup time.

Regarding hourly bookings, a cancelation or rebooking is free of charge if more than 24 hours remain between the cancelation or rebooking and the booked pickup time. Has the driver already set off towards the pickup location and / or less than one hour remains till the booked pickup time, the total fare will be charged in case of cancelation or rebooking.

In case of cancelation by DK Limos already paid fares will be refunded. A claim for compensation or additional claims are excluded. Rebookings are classified as new bookings, i.e. the rebooking is rated as a binding booking request, after which a binding booking confirmation from DK Limos leads to the conclusion of the contract. Any requests of making short-term changes cannot be guaranteed by DK Limos.

No-Shows without cancellation will also be charged at 100%. A No-Show is a ride in which the passenger does not appear at the agreed pickup location within 30 minutes after the pickup time, unless it is a pickup at the airport or the train station. At airport and train station pickups your chauffeur waits up to 60 minutes for you. This time starts with the scheduled pickup time, flight and train delays or earlier flights and trains lead to a deferral of the scheduled pickup time by the planned period of time between the planned arrival time and the original pickup time. From this rule situations are excluded in which the driver and the passenger have agreed on a different pickup time by phone. If the customer has requested that the chauffeur continue waiting, the customer will be charged per minute according to the DK Limos rates for the respective business district and the respective vehicle category.
