Terms and conditions
Who we are
These are the terms and conditions of use for www.journeycomparison.com (Website).
These terms are important as they explain some key things about the Website, the services offered through the Website and our role in providing those
services. These terms form a legally binding contract between you and us, and govern your use of the Website.
We do sometimes update these terms so you should return to this page and read through it again from time to time. The last time we updated these terms was
on 14th December 2014. Your use of the Website will be taken as your acceptance of the latest version of these terms.
Description of our services
We provide you with an independent platform that enables you to: (i) specify your transportation requirements within the United Kingdom and obtain quotes
for transportation services from a number of transportation companies (Member Companies); (ii) book a transportation job with the Member
Company whose quote you select (Services).
Who may use the services
To use the Website and the Services you must be at least 18 years of age and resident in the UK.
Your use of the Website
Your use of the Website will be subject to these terms and conditions, and by using the Website you agree to be bound by them. Any transportation services
you arrange through the Website will be supplied subject to the details set out on your enquiry form and the transportation terms and conditions of the relevant Member
Company providing the transportation services. Your transportation enquiry and the Member Company’s terms and conditions will be made available to you
before you book transportation services through the Website, and you should read them carefully before accepting a booking.
Transportation quotes generated by our system are based on the information that you provide to us via the Website. It is your responsibility to ensure that
you provide us with complete, accurate and up-to-date information regarding your transportation requirements when you request a quote for transportation
services (for example in relation to the number of people and nature of the occasion that you require transportation for, the transportation dates, the
transportation locations and the collection times).
If you change any details after requesting quotes via the Website, please do so by logging into your account on the site, and make the relevant changes.
If you need to change any of the details of a transportation job after making a booking, you will need to contact the Member Company, as it may affect the
agreed price of your transportation job or the Member Company’s ability to perform the transportation job. The Member Company’s terms and conditions will
apply in the event that you wish to make any changes following a booking.
What is our role?
Each booking for a transportation job is a legally binding contract between you and the Member Company. We are not a party to any contract between you and
a Member Company for the performance of any transportation job or any other service provided by that Member Company.
Our role is limited to acting as agent for each Member Company to:
- supply quotes for transportation services to you via the Website;
- conclude binding agreements between you and the Member Company that you select to perform a transportation job
If you accept a Member Company’s quote following a transportation requested through the Website, the Member Company will enter into a contract for
transportation services with you directly.
We will not act as the Member Company’s agent in respect of those contracts and fees payable under such contracts will be payable directly to the Member
Our liability to you
As we are not a party to any contract between you and a Member Company for the performance of any transportation job or any other service provided by that
Member Company, we will not be responsible or liable to you in relation to that transportation job or service.
Nothing in these terms and conditions shall limit or exclude our liability to you for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or for fraudulent
misrepresentation or any other liability that may not, under English law, be limited or excluded. Subject to this, in no event shall we be liable to you
for any business losses and any liability we do have for losses you suffer is strictly limited to losses that were reasonably foreseeable.
Any disputes in relation to any transportation jobs with Member Companies should be raised and resolved directly with the relevant Member Company.
If you have a dispute with any users (including Member Companies) in relation to the Website or the Services, you agree to release us from all claims,
demands and damages of every nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such dispute.
