6. Journey time, time of departure, waiting time, route
The journey time from Pécs to Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport is 3–3.5 hours on the average, depending on the time of the year, and on weather conditions (it may be longer in winter months and in extreme weather conditions). The route of the journey is not fixed and not set preliminarily; it may change in accordance with the reservations. The times of departure from the addresses specified are determined accordingly. If several passengers are collected, a delay of 5-10 minutes may occur. As our cars provide a classic collective shuttle service, passengers may also be collected, in addition to Baranya county, in Tolna and Somogy county. When scheduling the journeys we of course make our best to find the fastest possible solutions. Our primary route of travel is Motorway M6. If Client is not at the given address at the time specified the day before, the car driver can wait for him/her for 10 minutes the most. After this waiting time, the driver must continue the journey in order to keep the schedule. If the address or the telephone number is incorrectly communicated to Service Provider and this results in the failure of the car driver meeting the passenger, service is to be seen as completed and the full tariff will be charged to Client.
7. Departure from the airport, reception of passengers, waiting time
In case of journeys from Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport to Pécs, our car driver will be expecting arriving Passengers with a sheet featuring the logo of our Company and the name of Passenger. After the arrival of passengers using the classic collective shuttle service, some waiting time may occur at the airport, depending on the arrival time of the other passengers. This waiting time cannot be more than 120 minutes. (the organisation of rides is done according to the scheduled arrival times of flights). Service Provider shall not be liable for extra waiting time resulting from the arrival time specified by Passenger or the delay of flights.
If the plane of the Passenger is significantly (several hours) late compared to the time given by Passenger, Service Provider reserves the right to transfer Passenger with the next vehicle having empty seats. If Passenger refuses to accept the transfer at the modified time, s/he has the right to waive from the order (keeping the rules for the cancellation of travel), but Service Provider will offer a new option in each case. Due to the changes of transfers caused by flight delays, extra waiting time may be possible. Service Provider shall take no liability for any inconvenience coming from this.
It may happen that several planes land at the same time and our passengers are expected separately at Terminal 2/A and 2/B. We kindly ask you to switch on your mobile phone the number of which is specified in the reservation as soon as possible after landing so that our car driver can contact you. If you arrive at the arrival terminal after collecting your luggage and you cannot find our car driver there, we ask you to patiently wait within the building until the driver arrives.
8. Quantity of luggage, luggage other than usual, lost objects
Please, specify the quantity of luggage to be transferred when making the reservation. The travel fee includes the transfer of 1 suitcase (maximum 32 kilograms) and 1 hand luggage per person. For all other luggage, an extra fee of HUF 1,500 per luggage will be charged. If Passenger does not indicate luggage in excess of the quantity specified in this Contract and it jeopardises the placement of the luggage of other passengers, the transfer of the luggage may be rejected by the car driver.
If you travel with child(ren) and children’s seat is needed, please, indicate this when making the reservation, specifying the age and weight of the child(ren) so that adequate children’s seats can be provided for our little passengers.
Service Provider charges extra fee for the transfer of luggage other than the usual ones (e.g. bicycles, skis, prams, dogs etc.). Service Provider cannot be obliged for the transfer of such extra luggage, unless it was previously negotiated. The fee of transfer of such luggage may range from HUF 1,500 to 5,000, depending on size. The transfer of pets (dogs, cats) up to 10 kilograms maximum is possible, in transfer box and using muzzle, also for extra charge.
We cannot accept responsibility for items left in the car. Such items are stored for a maximum of 30 days, free of charge.
9. Transport fees, discounts, pull-off charges
All tariffs are given with departure from, or arrival at Pécs, for 1 person. If a return travel is booked for one person or several persons, transport fee is to be paid to the car driver on the first journey, in one lump sum, so that Client is eligible for the discount. If Client wishes to pay for the transfers separately, no discount price is applicable and tariffs calculated for single trips will be charged. If the reservation is for several persons and passengers depart or arrive at different times, no discount for return journey is applicable. If the address where Passenger is picked up or transported from the airport is not in Pécs, an extra pull-of charge is to be paid, as specified in the table “Pull-off charges outside Pécs” on our website. For information on pull-off charges concerning other settlements not specified in the table please contact our Customer Service.
Service Provider reserves the right to change transfer fees, but this does not concern passenger transports already booked!
10. Delays for reasons independent of Service Provider and due to the fault of Service Provider
Our Company shall not be held liable for delays and concomitant damages coming from events which are outside the competency of Service Provider and not predictable (accident, road block caused by road construction works or extraordinary weather conditions, traffic jam, other obstacles, technical breakdown etc.). In case of such unexpected events, alternative routes will be used.

For journeys within Europe, the amount of compensation is maximum three times the total value of services ordered from our Company, for journeys outside Europe the maximum amount of compensation is five times the total value of service ordered from our Company.

Client makes a declaration of being informed about and accepting the Terms and Conditions when making the reservation, which will enter into force when the confirmation is made. The acceptance of Terms and Conditions is also applicable for orders made by telephone. In case of orders for several persons, Client making the reservation makes the declaration on behalf of all other passengers as well. Ignorance of the Terms and Conditions does not excuse Client from keeping to them.
