These Terms and Conditions refer to and regulate the transfer service booked through the BGTransfer website www.bgtransfer.net.
Users may only be persons over the age of 18 who hold valid personal documents (passport or ID card) and a valid credit card. Persons under 18 can use our services with adult escort.
(1). A request to use the service may be made online at least 16 hours prior to the start of the transfer. The request is deemed to be confirmed when the client pays the full reservation price in advance and receives a reservation voucher to the email specified in the application. If the customer fails to pay this deposit, the request is considered unverified and can be cancelled at any time.
(2) When booking a transfer, it is assumed that you have accepted, on behalf of all participants, these Terms and Conditions, which constitute the entire agreement between you and BGTransfer, and your reservation will be accepted by us on this basis. The following terms apply to all services.
(3). Upon completion of the transfer reservation request, the user declares that the data specified in the request is correct, that the credit card they use is their personal and that they have sufficient funds to cover the transfer price.
(4). Reservation is possible if it is made online at www.bgtransfer.net or email to firstname.lastname@example.org by filling in the form we will send you and paying the corresponding price for your transfer. In both cases an invoice is issued and sent 24 hours prior to the start of the transfer. We will send you a voucher within 48 hours after your reservation, which is the confirmation of the transfer you ordered. All special requirements and medical issues must be communicated by the customer at the time of booking. Upon receipt of the full payment amount, a set of documents will be sent or delivered directly to you upon arrival, containing vouchers and other relevant information if necessary (travel notes, route notes, etc.). Please make sure all details are correct and immediately contact us if you notice any incorrect or missing information.
II. Reservation change

A change of a previously accepted request is only possible if it has been made not less than 24 hours before the start of the transfer and has been confirmed by us at the contact email specified by the customer. The following administrative charges apply when the user changes the request: first and second time are free of charge, third and subsequent change – € 20 for each.

The cancellation that is given orally to a company employee (eg driver, operator, etc.) or in writing to other email addresses will not be considered valid.
(2) If the transfer service provided by BGTransfer is missed by a customer due to illness, flight cancellation, etc., this is considered to be “no notification” and the amount paid for the transfer will not be refunded. The same rule applies if the customer decides to leave before the end of the transfer.
