Please review these Service Terms fully before you use the Services. By using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Service Terms.
If you do not agree to these Service Terms, you are directed to discontinue using the Services.

It is your responsibility to review these Service Terms regularly. These Service Terms were last updated on 01 November 2019.
The rate quoted prior to your trip is an estimate based on the information you provided at the time of the reservation. Wait time charges are not included in the estimate and will increase your final cost (see further ‘Wait Time’).
After a transport request is received and scheduled an email confirming the details of the reservation will be sent to the email address provided. If Quality Transport does not receive notice of errors or incorrect information regarding the reservation details 24 hours prior to the scheduled date of the reservation, the transfer will be charged in accordance with the existing reservation details (subject to any additional charges that may be incurred).
L.F. Wade International
Bermuda’s airport, L.F. Wade International, is a very small airport with one arrival terminal. Once you have cleared immigration, collected your luggage and then cleared customs you will exit into the arrivals area. Signage for “Pre-arranged transport” is displayed in the ceiling. Signage will direct you to the left where drivers will be standing with signs displaying your name. If for any reason you cannot locate your driver, you should call the local Quality Transport number 1-441-337-2578. You should not leave the airport as this will result in a No Show Charge (which is a full service charge).
Cedar Aviation Private Jet Terminal
All transfers from Cedar Aviation Private Jet Terminal (private jet pick-ups) will incur hourly charges (applicable to the vehicle type) from the spot time requested by the passenger until the passenger is dropped to their final destination. Quality Transport does not tract private flights.
Where clients request to have the same driver for multiple bookings in a day, Quality Transport cannot guarantee that this request can be met. Where the client has reserved full day or half day service bookings, Quality Transport will make every effort to book the same driver for the entire reservation, although again this cannot be guaranteed.
All advertised fares are subject to change without notice and are subject to surcharges for transport scheduled after midnight, on Sundays and on public holidays (see further ‘Additional Charges’)
Any changes made to your trip after pick-up may result in additional charges. Be sure to get an updated price from the driver or the office (441) 337-2578 before proceeding on your journey.
ADDITIONAL FEES AND CHARGES
Additional Fees and Surcharges
All bookings are subject to a 18% service and processing fee.
Any transport carried out after midnight, on a Sunday or on a public holiday is subject to a 15% to the surcharge.
Wait time charges may be incurred if a passenger arrives late to a scheduled pick-up. For standard pick-ups, wait time is charged in 15 minute increments. For airport arrivals, wait time is also charged in 15 minute increments however, a 30 minute grace period is given (from the actual flight arrival time) before wait time charges apply. Time spent waiting at additional stops will also cause wait time charges to be incurred.
Quality Transport does not charge wait time attributed to delayed flights.
Quotes and estimates do not include any additional/unscheduled stops made during your trip. Unless specifically discussed when booking a reservation by phone, the fare quoted by a Quality Transport agent does not include costs for additional stops. Additional stops are calculated by the distance deviated from the route between the original pick-up and destination. In particular, each additional stop will automatically incur a 15 minute wait time charge. If the stop exceeds 15 minute, wait time charges will be applied accordingly. You may obtain an exact quote for additional stops in advance by speaking with a Quality Transport agent at (441) 337-2578.
No Show Charge
If the passenger is (i) not at the specified pick-up location; (ii) has not given notice to Quality Transport; and (iii) does not show up within 25 minutes of the scheduled pick up time, this will result in a “No Show Charge” and the driver will abandon the job. In these circumstances, a customer service agent may provide a courtesy call to the passenger or person specified on the reservation, prior to the job being abandoned. A No Show Charge is the equivalent of a full service charge.
Where luggage, baggage or personal items are intentionally left in a vehicle by a passenger, the passenger will be charged hourly wait time (applicable to the vehicle type) until the items are removed.
Wet Passenger Fee
If a passenger is wet (i.e. from swimming) and as result causes the seats of a Company vehicle to be wet, the passenger will be charged a minimum of 2 hours wait time for the vehicle being taken out of service to allow the seats to dry.
PAYMENT AND BILLING
Invoices for personal and corporate accounts are issued on the last business day of each month.
All invoices over 30 days past due will incur a five percent (5%) fee each month the invoice remains past due.
For reservations that are not attached to an account the credit card on file will be billed immediately after the completion of the Services or as soon as possible thereafter. A receipt of such charges will be sent at the time the credit card is charged.
