Our chauffeurs will drive at reasonable speeds as per their judgment of the pervasive street conditions and traffic at any specific time and always within the speed limits as per road traffic regulation laws. At the point when a hirer wishes to be driven to a particular location, the driver will use the route which is, in his supposition, the best and generally advantageous for motoring, regardless of whether the route is the shortest or not, unless instructed otherwise or the hirer requests a specific route.
A reasonable amount of ordinary passenger luggage is allowed. However, luggage will not be transported, which amounts to excessive weight and volume in the chauffeur’s view. KlassChauffeur reserves the right to refuse to carry luggage that is excessively large and heavy in the chauffeur’s view, and which has not been appropriately communicated by the customer at the time of booking. Transporting excessive luggage poses a significant risk to the safety of the passengers and the driver, and it can also cause damage to the vehicle. If the carriage of excessive luggage is not possible, the payment made KlassChauffeur by the customer for the booking will not be influenced and the money paid will not be refunded should the customer request a journey cancellation.
We reserve the right to change the vehicles to an equivalent before the journey, dependent on accessibility, if a previously requested vehicle becomes inaccessible or if there is a risk of a driver not making it on the scheduled time for a pick-up. We will guarantee the category chosen by the customer but not the vehicle’s make, specs, or colour KlassChauffeur will notify the customer 2 hours in advance regarding car and chauffeur details.
Requests for child seats must be made at the time of the booking. One child seat is free of charge but needs to be requested in advance. Suppose you wish to utilize your child seat.

Otherwise, you may be charged compensation (refer to clause 9).
