South Somerset Cars (SSC TAXIS) understands that sometimes travel disruptions are unexpected and we will do everything we can to make sure both the company and client are not adversely effected.
On the occasion that booking details are supplied to SSC TAXI inaccurately or incorrectly and we can verify the request of services provided we will charge 100% of the 1-way journey included within the invoice for the correct rebooking of the journey.
SSC TAXIS will require all relevant and reasonable information when booking. Additional requirements should be identified on the booking confirmation. Where amendments to any aspect of the booking are requested subsequent to ‘Booking Confirmation’ being issued, every effort will be made to accommodate requirements although no guarantees can be made.
SSC TAXIS operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. All bookings are subject to vehicle and driver availability.
Payment can be made by cash (in person) or by Credit or Debit card. All major Credit and Debit cards are accepted. Payment of the journey is at the discretion of the driver or SSC TAXIS administration.
Cancellation – 1 week before the date of travel – Full refund. 48 hours before the date of travel – 25% of payment. 24 hours before the date of travel – 50% of payment.
Absence without good cause
If having booked SSC TAXI you fail to meet these terms and conditions without good cause, SSC TAXI will consider reporting the matter to the authorities including the Police if you have maliciously or wilfully booked our services for no good cause. You will be blacklisted from future journeys and we may pursue you for lost revenue through civil remedies.
Parking, toll or hotel charges (if necessary) will be added to clients invoice at the time of booking. Additional collections and drop-offs, not on the original booking, will be charged on an individual basis.

All return journeys must be paid in full at time of initial drop-off unless a prior arrangement has been agreed with the Company.
30 days after the date of invoice your account will become overdue which means a service charge of 10% will be added on day 31 and every week thereafter on a rolling total basis, unless terms are otherwise agreed in writing before the contract commences.
Any member of the party acting in an antisocial manner, causing an unwarranted distraction to the driver, or generally causing concerns regarding safety, will be asked to leave the vehicle and seek alternative transport to their destination. No refund will be offered in these circumstances.
Any damage or soiling caused by the client or a member of their party will incur payments for repair/cleaning, including loss of revenue whilst the vehicle undergoes any necessary work.
