How do I know if a Cab Partner is a licensed travel provider? All Jumpyn approved Cab Partners are required to hold a valid operators license, and they provide and show that operators license number within their Jumpyn Cab Partner profile. The license will have been issued by their local authority when they were accepted as a private hire operator. When a cab provider applies for an operators license they are vetted by their local authority to make sure they are suitable to hold the license. All Jumpyn approved Cab Partners are bound by Jumpyn's Terms & Conditions for Cab Partners and drivers which state the terms of business which they must abide by, they are designed to offer piece of mind to you the passenger when booking your journey with Jumpyn. If in doubt please get in contact with our customer support team who will be happy to assist with any queries.
What is a 'Ride Back'? A Ride Back is a term used to describe a type of journey undertaken by travel providers who have dropped a passenger at their destination and then return to their operating area with an empty vehicle. They have no passenger and no fare on that return trip so you will find that if you can match yourself with a travel provider with an empty vehicle you will get a great discount on the journey as they would otherwise have no fare at all.
