Terms and Conditions

1. General

These conditions ("the conditions") supplied by "De Gournay Motor Car Company" ("the company") to a customer ("the customer") shall be incorporated into each contract ("the contract") made by the company for the supply of goods ("the goods") and service ("the service") and hiring out of vehicles by the company. The company contracts as aforesaid upon such terms as are agreed between the company and the customer and the terms of the conditions alone. No variation of any of the conditions shall be effective unless in writing and signed by a partner of the company.

2. Specifications

The customer shall be responsible for ensuring that the details on the company's booking form are accurate.

3. Price

  1. All prices shall be as stated by the company.
  2. All prices stated may be subject to the variation at the sole discretion of the company at any time. However, this would only reflect any significant increase in the company's cost of performing the contract and the company shall notify the customer of any variation before delivery of goods or completion of the services.
  3. Prices stated for the hiring out of vehicles may be subject to variation for more than one pick-up, or special requirements.
  4. Road tolls, including payments to enter Low Emission/Congestion Zones shall be at the customer's expense unless expressed otherwise. Should road-use charging be introduced in the period between the customer placing a booking and the hire date, the price will increase to include this payment.

4. Payment

The customer shall be liable to pay a booking deposit. Such deposit shall be non-refundable in the event of cancellation by the customer. If the customer cancels within twelve weeks of the hire date, as we are unlikely to be able to re-allocate the vehicle, the full contract price shall be payable.

  1. The customer will be liable to pay the balance of the contract price for the hiring out of a vehicle six weeks before the date of hire.
  2. Sums unpaid after the due date shall bear interest until the day payment is received at the rate of 5% per annum above the base rate accruing from the due date until the date of payment in full.
  3. If the recovery of sums outstanding from the customer is passed to a solicitor or debt collection agency, the customer shall pay the company's cost in instructing the solicitor or debt collection agency and all ancillary costs.
  4. Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies of the company, any default by the customer in making payment on the due date shall entitle the company to suspend the provision of goods and services and vehicles under the contract so long as the default continues and to treat the contract as repudiated by the customer and determined if the customer has not within 14 days of receiving written notice from the company, paid all sums due to the company.

5. Liability

The company undertakes that it shall exercise all reasonable skill, care and diligence in the performance of it's duties hereunder and save for liability for death or personal injury arising from the company's negligence or for liability arising under the Sale of Goods Act 1994 (which if proved is not excluded) the company's obligation to refund any monies paid directly to the company shall constitute the full extent of the company's liability in respect of any loss or damage sustained by the customer whether caused by breach of contract or by misrepresentation or by the negligence of the company, its employees or agent arising from the breakdown of any vehicles, or technical faults with of malfunction of any equipment, or any other cause whatsoever, and the company shall not be liable in circumstances where the goods supplied or services completed or vehicles hired out are not fit for any special purpose unless full details of such purpose had been given in writing to the company and the company has acknowledged the same in writing and agreed thereto.

6. Miscellaneous

  1. The maximum number of passengers to be carried in a vehicle hired out by the company under the contract shall be determined by the company, or its employees in accordance with construction and use regulations.
  2. The company reserves the right to substitute or suspend services without prior notice and shall incur no liability except as is provided for in clause 5.

7. Force Majeure

In the event that we are unable to provide services as a result of events that are outside of our control (changes in government legislation, road closures, congestion, traffic accidents, severe weather conditions, e.g. - flooding, heavy snow, or where driving a vehicle may pose risk to our employees or customers, (without reference the preceding clauses) the company shall be entitled:

(i) to suspend the provision of goods or services or vehicle hire under the Contract without incurring any liability for the failure to provide the goods or services or vehicle hire as contracted.
