The following administrative terms apply to contracts arranged by Resorthoppa (UK) Limited, acting as a disclosed agent for the Supplier, for passenger Services between the departure points and destinations specified at the time these Services are booked and paid for. References to “you”and“your” in these administrative terms and conditions mean all passengers listed in the written confirmation (including anyone who is substituted or added at a later date). “We”, “us” and “our” means Resorthoppa (UK) Limited.
1. Resorthoppa (UK) Limited
1.1. Resorthoppa (UK) Limited (“hoppa”) is a limited company registered in England (company registration number 4933736), whose registered and trading address is at 1st Floor, West Lodge, Station Approach, West Byfleet, Surrey KT14 6NG, United Kingdom.
1.2. Hoppa is a Booking service for passenger transport services (“the services”) at all times acting as the disclosed agent of the Supplier specified at the time the Services are booked and paid for by you and confirmed by Hoppa (“the booking”). The terms and conditions applicable to the contract between you and the Supplier are set out in the booking conditions of the relevant Supplier. These are available on request. Since Hoppa acts as the disclosed agent for its Suppliers, it cannot accept any liability arising from the provision of the Services.
1.3. By arranging the Services through us with the relevant Supplier, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions (as they may be modified and posted on our website or app from time to time) as well as other information contained on the website, app, email or any other form of electronic or written communication with you.
2. Status of the Passenger(s) and their agents
The purchaser of the transport Services specified in the Booking (the “Lead Party”) and all of the other passengers listed in the Booking are the other party to the contract with the nominated Supplier. On completion of your Booking, your contract for the use and provision of the Services is between you and the Supplier. If the contract is made by an agent, or any other person acting on behalf of the passengers whose names appear in the Booking is deemed to be acting as the agent of all of the passengers who use the Services.
3. Booking and payment
3.1. Bookings may be made online on the hoppa website, the hoppa app or by telephone. Where two or more people are included in the same Booking, the person making the Booking (“the Lead Party” or “you”) shall be deemed to have done so on behalf of both or all members of the party and he or she accepts these terms and conditions on behalf of himself or herself and each member of the party. The Lead Party must follow the process for making the Booking and paying for the Services (either at the time of Booking or immediately prior to the use by you of the Services). The Lead Party must be at least 18 years of age.
3.2. The initial low deposit payment of £1 per booking is subject to availability (entirely at our discretion) on selected routes, it will only be available for online bookings and if you book your journey at least 30 days before departure. All deposit payments made are non-refundable once the booking has been made. The outstanding balance will automatically be deducted from the same credit/debit card used to pay the initial deposit and you will be informed of the due date of subsequent payments at the time of booking. In the event of cancellation before the due date of the final payment, you will forfeit the initial deposit. After the due date of the final payment you will be liable for the full value of the booking. If you would like to make changes or add extras to your booking, you will be asked to pay the additional associated charges (i.e. amendment charges) when the amendments are applied.
3.3. Full payment is required either (i) at the time of Booking; or (ii) not less than 24 hours before the use of the Services by you; or (iii) where you have booked Hoppa's on demand Services, on completion of your journey, depending on which Services and payment option offered to you at the time you confirm the Booking. On receipt of such payment, Hoppa will process the Booking and issue, on its website, app and by email the Booking with details of the persons involved in the Booking and the transfer Services which you have booked. The Booking acts as the ‘ticket’ and must be presented to the Supplier representative for your journey. A legally binding contract will be created between the Lead Party (and all of the passengers listed on the Booking) and the Supplier when the payment is processed and we provide confirmation of the Booking. No binding contract is created until full payment has been received by us. We are an online company and therefore all communication with you shall be via our website, app or email.
3.4. All payments made are fully refundable in the event that you cancel the Services in line with our cancellation policy stated in term 8.1, or if the Supplier cancels the Services. Hoppa or its Supplier may elect to provide you with compensation, goodwill payments or refunds in the event that you are not satisfied with the Services used by you.
3.5. It is the Lead Party's (or the agent, or any other person acting on behalf of the passengers whose names appear on the Booking) responsibility to check all of the details of the Booking prior to travel and inform Hoppa as soon as possible if there are any errors. Hoppa, its Suppliers or agents cannot be held responsible or liable for timeliness, accuracy or quality of the Services due to incorrect information provided at the time you confirm the Booking.
3.6. Where possible and if notified by the Supplier we will contact you to advise if incorrect information has been provided on the Booking, so that you may have an opportunity to amend the incorrect details. If any errors in the information provided by you result in a change to the cost of the Services, you will be liable for that cost. In the event that you fail to pay for any increased costs due to incorrect information provided by you, Hoppa and/or its Supplier reserves the right to cancel the Services without any compensation or refund liability to you.
3.7. The Supplier's price quoted to you at the time you make your Booking is the price you will be required to pay and we guarantee there will be no additional costs which you will be required to pay, except where you book Hoppa's on demand Services where the price will be confirmed on the completion of your journey and the amount will be debited by us from the payment method you have provided to us and passed onto the relevant Supplier.
3.8. In some cases credit and debit card issuers, banks and other payment processors charge us a handling fee and we will pass this on to you depending on the payment method you have chosen.
3.9. If you are Booking via a Travel Agent, they are acting as an agent for you. No contract will be created between you and a Supplier until full payment has been received from your travel agent in line with their contractual agreements with us. We cannot accept any liability in respect of any confirmed Services unless full payment has been received.
4. Child Seats
In certain destinations that you may have booked (e.g. the European Union), the relevant authorities state that children must use an appropriate child seat until they reach 12 years of age or until they reach a height of 135 cm, except when using licensed taxis. We will endeavour to ensure that child seats are provided by our Suppliers where they have been requested (and in some cases paid for by you at the time of Booking). If no child seat is available, children of three years of age and over may travel as long as they wear an adult seat belt. Children under three years of age may be transported without a safety restraint as long as they travel in the rear of the vehicle.
5. Child Pricing
5.1. Where you have arranged shuttle transport Services, no charge is made for children under the age of two as long as they sit on an adult passenger’s lap. If a child aged greater than two years requires a seat they will be charged the full price. For children of two and above a seat must always be booked at the price quoted at the time of Booking for the relevant Services.
5.2. Where you have arranged private transport services, all children and infants count towards the occupancy of the vehicle, regardless of age, and this must be included in the total number of passengers at the time of Booking.
6. Wheelchairs and bookings for disabled passengers
We and our Suppliers are not a specialist disabled transportation company, but will use reasonable endeavours' to cater for any requirements you may have. If you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect the Services, please provide us with full details via our website or app before you confirm your Booking so that we may advise you of the suitability of your chosen arrangements. You must inform us at time of Booking if any of the passengers are wheelchair users. Please also inform us if the wheelchair is collapsible, so that we may ensure that the correct vehicle is booked to meet with requirements.
7.1. Booking amendments should be made on our website or app. This is free of any administration charge up to 48 hours days before the use of the first Services contained in any Booking confirmed by us. If you wish to make a change less than 48 hours prior to the use by you of the first Services contained in your Booking, you must send an email from the email address which you provided at the time of Booking to: talktous.hoppa.com, quoting your Booking reference number, lead passenger name and the changes you require. Amendments may result in increased charges and you must pay these prior to any changes being made, including any relevant reasonable credit card, debit card or payment charges.
7.2. Amendments will be subject to the Booking conditions of the Supplier who may charge amendment fees in addition to any cost increases or payment charges.
7.3. Where you request a change to your Booking which involves Services to a different destination than that specified in your Booking, you will be required to cancel your original Booking and make a new Booking. Supplier's cancellation charges may apply.
7.4. In general and for most Services, we do not charge for amendments or changes to your Booking, although we reserve the right to do so in the event that our Suppliers levy a charge. If there is a price increase caused by any change you request to the Services that you have booked, you will be required to pay the difference in the price between the Services originally booked by you, and the price of the new Services you have requested.
8. Cancellation by you

A £10 (or local currency equivalent based on the prevailing British Pound GBP exchange rate) Booking fee will be added to the rate of the Services.
10. Baggage allowance and declaration
All baggage must be clearly labelled with the owner’s name and the destination address. Our Suppliers will use reasonable endeavours to accommodate all baggage carried by your party. Each passenger named on the Booking is entitled to have carried with him on the relevant transfers up to two items of baggage, i.e. one suitcase which should not exceed 90cm x 75cm and one piece of hand luggage 56cm x 45cm. Carriage of any baggage exceeding these measurements will be subject to available baggage hold space and may be declined. If a passenger requires carriage of baggage in excess of this allowance or has special baggage objects (e.g. skis, golf clubs, bicycles, snowboards, wheelchairs/scooters etc.) you must inform us at the time of Booking by completing the special requests section of the Booking completion form on our web site or app. If you have extra luggage please contact talktous.hoppa.com to help make the necessary arrangements, the Supplier may however make a charge for excess baggage or refuse carriage of the excess items without prior arrangement.
11. Conditions of carriage
11.1. The Supplier, its drivers and appointed agents, including Hoppa, reserve the right to refuse to carry any person who is, or appears to be, under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs and/or whose behaviour is considered to pose a threat to the driver, the vehicle or the other passengers. No refunds will be made in those circumstances.
11.2. Passengers are not allowed to consume alcohol or to smoke in any of the vehicles used to provide the Services.
11.3. All vehicles provided by the Suppliers are fully insured for passenger and third party claims, as required by the local law. Passenger’s baggage is, however, carried entirely at their own risk and no responsibility can be accepted for loss or damage by the Supplier of the Services. Hoppa will not accept responsibility for any costs incurred or the making of any arrangements in returning the items to passengers.
11.4. Whilst we endeavour to provide SMS messaging and reconfirm important Booking information on the Hoppa app and website prior to the dates on which you use the Supplier's service, the availability of that information cannot be guaranteed at any time prior to you using the Service. It is your responsibility to utilise all options available to confirm the pick up time of your return Service if you have made a Booking. These options are located on your Booking confirmation on our website, app and in your Booking confirmation email. If you require collection by our Supplier from a different address to the location that you were dropped off (for return Services), your return pick up must be confirmed with the Supplier over the telephone only using the Supplier's contact number provided to you on our website, app or email confirmation.
11.5. Whilst all reasonable efforts will be made by the Supplier to provide the Services at the times confirmed in your Booking, there is no guarantee that the vehicle and driver will arrive on time in order to begin the period of hire, nor that it will reach its destination on time. If the transportation arrangements you have booked with our Suppliers are for collection at an airport or port or train station and the flight, ship or train arrival is more than 45 minutes later than the time confirmed in your Booking, our Suppliers will use reasonable endeavours to wait for you, but cannot guarantee the availability of the Services under these circumstances. You should make every effort to contact the Supplier using the their contact details supplied to you at the time of Booking if you expect not be at the designated meeting point at the time specified at the time of Booking (or subsequently amended). For all other Services booked by you with our Suppliers that arrive at the designated pick up location more than 10 minutes later than the time notified to you by us or our Suppliers, you will be entitled to receive a refund from our Supplier for that part of the Services which is late and any reasonable costs incurred by you in making and using alternative transport arrangements . We recommend you contact the relevant Supplier by telephone if the driver and vehicle is not at the designated pick up location at the time specified in the Booking confirmation provided to you. You must make every effort, however, to mitigate your losses in making alternative transport arrangements. When paying for alternative transport, please ensure that you obtain a proper receipt and then submit this to our Customer Services department on your return. We will investigate with the Supplier the failure of the Services within 14 days of you notifying us of any delay in the Services provided to you. We will not refund any costs without provision of original receipts and proof of payment. Our maximum liability to you in respect of delayed or failure of our Suppliers to provide the transportation arrangement is limited to the actual costs incurred by you of any reasonable and comparable Services, although our Suppliers may elect to provide further goodwill payments or discounts on future Bookings at their sole discretion.
11.6. If you are being collected from an airport, port or train station and your flight, ship or train is delayed or cancelled we recommend that you contact the Supplier via the telephone numbers provided on your Booking confirmation. Whilst every effort will be made by our Suppliers to accommodate changes to your Services caused by delays outside of your control, this may not always be possible. It may not always be viable for the driver to wait and you may have to make alternative travel plans at your own cost locally. If the Supplier is able to accommodate the new arrival time an additional charge may be applied. Hoppa and its Suppliers accept no liability of any nature (including but not limited to alternative transportation costs and phone call costs) if you are not at the meeting point at the time specified in your Booking confirmation for any reason.

When Booking shared shuttle/speedy shuttle Services the journey time could be longer during peak times of travel.

Our Supplier’s experienced drivers will use reasonable endeavours to get you to your destination in a the least amount of time practically achievable.
