4.    OUR SERVICES

4.1.    How it works. We provide an online service which allows you to compare private hire fares and book your journey by using the search facility. We are not a cab company. The search facility allows you to receive system generated prices and then request a fixed price direct from registered Jumpyn approved Cab Partners. The facility allows you to receive instant quotes and real time bids for long and short distance journeys direct from registered Jumpyn approved travel providers (Cab Partners).

4.2.    How we will accept your bookings. Our acceptance of a booking will take place when you accept a bid and pay for the journey, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us in relation to the booking. Our obligation to you under this contract will only be to assist you in finding a cab and making payment to your driver.  We are not responsible for the journey with your driver.  This will be entirely between you and your driver.

4.3.    If we cannot accept your cab request. If we are unable to accept or meet your request for a cab, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the booking.

Each driver/company will have different procedures and we cannot be held responsible in any way if you are not present at the pick up location. If you wish to seek a refund or compensation you must contact the driver or company directly. 

4.6.    Your legal rights if your driver is late. If the driver is late it is a matter between you and the driver/company.

We cannot be held responsible for the time keeping of drivers/companies.

Refunds will only be issued by us if the booking is cancelled by the passenger or booked Cab Partner through the site before and up to the departure date and time. Any claim for a refund after the departure date and time should be directed to the booked Cab Partner.
