We reserve the right to send you an upgraded vehicle than the one originally chosen by you if it is unavailable at that time.
Prices quoted are calculated taking into account the distance, time and the number of passengers travelling in a particular journey. Please note that additional charge will apply to extra services provided such as 'Meet and Greet', additional pick ups and drop offs etc.

Payments can be made by the following methods:
All major debit and credit cards accepted. No cheques and cash please.
Please note that for all bookings made by debit/card card there will be an additional charge if applicable. In order to prevent fraud, any bookings made by debit/credit card are subject to verification and therefore the customer may be asked to provide a proof of valid ID along with the card used to make that booking.
Waiting Time Charges
All the waiting time charges are calculated from the actual flight landing time.
Drivers track the flight and go inside accordingly. We then allow all passengers 1 hour from the time the flight actually lands to meet with their driver.
After this ‘free’ hour, waiting time is charged at £20/hour Pro Rata.
If you want more time we can ask the driver to arrive 90-120 minutes after landing to avoid the waiting time charge and passengers get enough time to come through and meet the driver at the pick up point. We suggest you to book 90 minutes for solo travellers and 120 min for group bookings. Most of the time, our drivers are near the airport and they can go inside if they come out early.
If you book for a different time than the actual landing time you would not get the 1 hour free waiting time.
For pick ups from home, hotels, offices and any other venues, we do not charge for the first 5 minutes from the actual booking time. Any further waiting time will be charged at £20 per hour pro rata irrespective of any reason from the very first minute and not the 6th minute.
Flight delays are exempt from these charges.
Additional Passengers and Luggage
Additional passengers and luggages may be added with the permission of Jewels Airport Transfers' controller provided it doesn't exceed the capacity of the vehicle.
Additional Drop offs and Pick ups
Additional drop offs and pickups will be charged on the per mile basis or at a minimum fee of £5 whichever is greater.
All the bookings can be cancelled free of charge with a minimum of 24 hours notice. However, there will be a £10 or 10% ( whichever is greater ) admin fee charged Any cancellations made within 24 hours of the pick up time will not be refunded.

The 'Qoute Me' feature online or any bookings made over the phone do not include any Toll charges. Therefore wherever applicable, the driver will ask the passenger for money or the customer can choose to pay by credit/debit card as per his convenience.
No show means if a passenger fails to meet the driver on the pick up time and fails to make a contact with the driver or the customer support team. This includes bookings from home, offices, hotels or any other private address.
In case of pick up from an airport, if the passenger fails to meet the driver within an hour and a half of flight landing time and doesn't make any contact either with the driver or the customer support team in order to update us on the status of their flight, it will be considered as No show. However, if the passenger is late but manages to make a contact, normal waiting time charges will apply.
Also, any bookings made for wrong date and/or time will be considered as No show.
