Liability of Navette Lyon

The vehicles made available to Customers comply with the technical standards imposed by the French regulations in force. Drivers are required to comply with the provisions prescribed of the Highway Traffic Act, including rules relating to parking, speed limits and the safety of passengers and surrounding vehicles.

The Carrier disclaims all liability for delays that would be due to a majeure force event (and particularly in the event of a strike, demonstration, inclement weather, serious traffic accident disrupting regular traffic, congestion of an unusual size) or attributable to the Customer. These events cannot give rise to any compensation. The Carrier undertakes to reimburse the cost of replacing the ticket (up to 500€ per passenger per flight, 100€ per train ticket, 150€ per hotel night, 20€ for food), upon presentation of an original invoice, if the latter were to miss his flight because of the fault solely attributable to Navette Lyon, on condition that the Customer proves that it was impossible to obtain a refund of the price of the said ticket from the airline, or be offered a replacement flight at no additional cost by the said airline.

The Carrier is subject to an obligation of means with regard to the booking of a transfer. Consequently, Navette Lyon cannot guarantee the availability of a vehicle and cannot be held liable in the event that Navette Lyon has not been able to book the trip requested by the Customer because it has not found an available vehicle corresponding to its wishes. To be taken into account, any complaint must reach the Carrier within a maximum of 3 weeks from the contractual date of the transfer initially agreed by e-mail or postal mail, addressed to the Carrier’s Customer Service whose details are given in Article 11 hereof. After this period, no commercial claim can be taken into consideration.

In shared service on an airport trip to a railway station or station to an airport, the journey time indicated in the reservation is indicative and non-contractual. Finally, the Carrier disclaims all responsibility for loss or damage or theft of cash, banknotes, jewellery and other precious objects, which during the entire course of the transfer remain the sole responsibility of the Customer.

The customer is obliged to respect the scheduled times and the arrival and departure procedures stipulated in his booking confirmation. The customer is not authorised to modify the itinerary, addresses and places of pick-up and drop-off given at the time of booking. The customer undertakes to adopt, on board the vehicle, a behaviour that is neither contrary to the rules of common sense nor to compliance with the French laws and regulations in force as mentioned in Article 6 of this Agreement.

He must make sure not to forget anything in the vehicle, in accordance with Article 6.
