4 Waiting

Motocab cannot commit to more than ten minutes of waiting without prior notification to the switchboard. Depending on the availability of the pilots, a wait is possible with a charge of 1€/minute after 10 minutes offered in relation to the initial reservation time.
At the airports, a flight follow-up is carried out and the delay billing is 1€/minute 20 minutes after the flight landing (the flight information provided at the time of the reservation must be recognized by Paris Airport).
In case of delay of Motocab's driver in relation to the reservation time and except in case of agreement between the Client and Motocab, 10% of the amount of the trip will be deducted for every ten minutes beyond the first 20 minutes, within the limit of the amount of the trip, and except in case of force majeure.

The evening (after 8pm) or night surcharges will be charged according to the actual departure time of the vehicle and not the reservation. (e.g. A reservation made for 7:50 pm with an actual departure at 8:10 pm will be charged the night surcharge plus the eventual delay).

5 Cancellation and changes

Any changes or cancellations made more than one hour before the trip are free of charge. If you cancel less than one hour before the pick-up time, the entire trip is due.

6 Motocab's services and responsibility

Motocab commits itself to do whatever is necessary to bring the passenger to his destination as soon as possible and in optimal safety conditions. In this respect, Motocab is responsible for the driving and custody of the vehicle and complies with the regulations of the Highway Code. Motocab is guaranteed by a solvent insurance company that covers the risks related to its activity in accordance with the legislation in force. Passengers, third parties with respect to the driver, are covered for all bodily, material and immaterial damages that they may suffer as a result of a traffic accident and this in an unlimited way, from the moment they get on the vehicle until they get off, except for damages caused by their fault. For safety reasons, it is forbidden to smoke, to carry flammable, explosive, corrosive or toxic substances. The non-respect of this stipulation engages the responsibility of the Client and the passenger. Motocab reserves the right to take any action. Animals are not admitted to the transport unless a specific arrangement has been made. In any case, Motocab will not be held responsible for this. It is expressly agreed that delays in the transport due to unforeseen traffic difficulties (traffic jams, accidents, detour, weather conditions, various events, etc.) do not give right to any kind of compensation. In case of damage to the equipment or vehicle caused by the passenger, any repair or change of the equipment, whatever the cause, will be charged to the Customer. Any damage caused to a third party as a result of the passenger's behaviour not complying with elementary safety rules will be the responsibility of the Client. Motocab reserves the right to remove the passenger from the vehicle if he/she does not comply with the safety instructions given by Motocab and this without the possibility of demanding reimbursement of the fare. In case of subcontracting a ride to an independent rider, the latter assumes full responsibility for the transfer and its consequences. A breakdown of the motorcycle that is not due to poor maintenance and that occurs on the way to pick up the Customer or during the trip with the Customer, can in no case give right to compensation. Any complaint is possible within 48 hours after the trip, by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. Any suitcase of 15 Kg can be refused by the driver and the trip will then be charged in its entirety.
