TERMS & CONDITIONS
All vehicle hire is with the full acknowledgement and agreement of the terms and conditions, as set out below:
1. No vehicle is considered “reserved” until the deposit has been received by Regal Limousines.
2. The person (s) or Company reserving the vehicle is responsible for all guests and any damage to the interior and equipment in the vehicle and willful and/or accidental damage to the exterior. This includes, but is not limited to: liquid spillage, vomiting, breakage of glassware, lights, electronic and stereo equipment, damage to interior fixtures, fittings and furnishings, damage to internal and external bodywork, damage to windows and tyres. All passengers agree to behave in an orderly and well-behaved manner. Repair and replacement of any item carries a minimum charge of $400.00. Regal Limousines reserves the right to expel any person from the vehicle and/or terminate this contract in the event of violation of any of these conditions by any passenger. In the event of such early termination, no portion of any fees paid shall be refunded.
3. Airport Pickups: Additional charges may incur for waiting time for arriving flights. The first 15 minutes of delay is included in the agreed fee. An additional $115.00 for every 30 minutes, or part there of, waiting time will apply. Arrival passengers will be met at the arrival terminal unless alternative arrangements have been agreed. To avoid a no-show fee, please ensure you contact our office on (09) 838 8463 prior to leaving the airport. A $100.00 charge will be applied to any trip after 12:00am (Midnight) and before 6.30am and public holidays. Any airline delays could result in the reservation being subject to availability.
4. Return Transfers: The vehicle will arrive at the pre-arranged pickup point at the designated time. Regal Limousines do not accept responsibility for passengers who are not at the pickup point within 15 minutes of the designated pickup time.
5. A transfer is a direct pick up and drop off and does not include multiple pick-ups and/or drop offs. This can be up to, but no more than 30 minutes anywhere within the Auckland CBD. Additional pick-ups and drop offs will incur additional charges. This does not apply to school balls or wedding packages.
6. Regal Limousines do not accept responsibility for any delay caused by, but not limited to traffic delays, weather, breakdown, incorrect information, acts of nature or any other unexpected circumstances or situation beyond Regal Limousines control.

b) Our vehicles are maintained to the highest standard. However, in rare occasions a breakdown, accident or other problem may occur at a most inconvenient time and prevent the requested vehicle from completing the hire. In the event of this occurring, Regal Limousines will endeavor to send a back up replacement vehicle(s) in order to complete the hire or refund any payment in full. No further compensation will be made or paid and no liability will be accepted by Regal Limousines for any consequential loss.
c) If the interruption occurs after commencement of the hire, Regal Limousines will do everything they can to get you to the required destination on time, but sometimes despite our best efforts, the impossible may not be achievable. Again, no further compensation will be made or paid and no liability will be accepted by the Regal Limousines for any consequential loss or disappointment.
