“Transfer confirmation” or “Travel confirmation” is a document confirming to the passenger that the arranged service will be provided.
“Carrier” is a company transporting passengers on behalf of the tour operator.
The General terms of travel set out the terms and conditions between the tour operator and the passenger as the user of services in the public transportation of passengers, as well as the terms under which the operator fulfills its obligations towards the passenger and his/her belongings.
The Tour operator shall organize safe transport for the passenger and his/her luggage, according to the arranged program and the scheduled route, whereas the passenger shall pay the Operator for the service provided. The Agreement can also be made between the Tour operator and the client arranging the service, in which case the client is obligated to pay for the services provided. A Travel confirmation serves as proof of accepting this Agreement.
A Travel confirmation contains the name of the Tour operator, date, time, route and price of the transfer. The Travel confirmation may be sent by e-mail, fax or in printed form.
The Travel confirmation is usually issued for individual transfers, that is, a single or return transfer, and it renders the Tour operator obligated to provide the services on such date and at such time as indicated on the Travel confirmation. A return transfer enables the passenger to use the transfer service for a round trip, in the specified route, and the Tour operator is accordingly obligated to provide the services on such date and at such time as indicated on the Travel confirmation. The Passenger must confirm the time and date of departure and return by selecting one of the possible payment options:
- The total amount in advance, payable by a credit or debit card or via bank transfer;
- 20% deposit paid in advance, via bank transfer, and the remaining 80% of the total amount is paid directly to the driver on the date of service provision
- The full amount for the transfer paid in cash in Euro to the driver on the date of service provision prior to the provision of the transfer service.
The transport price includes the cost of Austrian vignette, whereas any other additional costs are to be paid by the passenger (tolls, tunnels, bridges…).
The change of time and date chosen when booking the transfer may be done by e-mail or telephone. The Passenger will receive a Travel confirmation containing the changed or amended information about a part of the transfer within 24 hours, and in such case Tour operator decides whether or not to charge this service additionally.
The Tour operator will issue a Travel confirmation at the Passenger’s request, and is obligated to provide the travel. The Confirmation is delivered by e-mail and not charged additionally.
REFUND IN CASE OF TRAVEL CANCELATION
The Tour operator shall refund the Passenger in case of travel cancelation. The amount which the Tour operator is obligated to pay to the Passenger depends on the scheduled departure time. In any case, the Tour operator keeps 20% of the transfer price as a booking processing fee. The refund includes the remaining 80% of the transfer price and the percentage is the following:
- for travel cancelations more than 5 days prior to the transfer date - 100 % refund
- for travel cancelations between 24 hours and 5 days prior to the transfer date - 80 % refund
- for travel cancelations less than 24 hours prior to the transfer - no refund
Should the Passenger submit a request to cancel the return transfer, after having used a single transfer, the same refund percentage shall apply, but only for a half of the total transfer price.
If the Passenger refuses to pay for the services provided, the Tour operator is entitled to demand payment for the service provided. If the Passenger has booked a transfer and chosen the option of paying directly to the driver, and thereafter canceled the transfer, the Tour operator will send a bill to the Passenger in accordance with the compensation percentages listed above.
If, on the other hand, the Passenger finds that the service has not been carried out in a satisfactory manner, he/she is entitled to file a written complaint to the Tour operator in accordance with the General terms and conditions of travel.
If a Passenger mistakenly uses the services of another Carrier instead of the services of Travelin d.o.o., which he/she has paid for, he/she does not meet the refund requirements.
If a Passenger fails to appear, he/she will be charged the total amount for the transfer.
Any changes to the original booking are charged according to the current price list for a new booking. Should the Passenger change the date or time of the transfer, and the price remains the same as in the original booking, there will be no additional charges.

In the event that the Passenger is late for a flight, train or anything else due to weather conditions or road conditions which were not directly caused by the Tour operator, the Tour operator cannot be held liable and cannot be expected to cover the costs incurred by the delay.
In the event that the Tour operator is directly responsible for the delay (the vehicle breaks down, empty tank, the driver arrives late, etc.), the passengers will be compensated for the costs of transport. In case a Passenger has to use another type of transport due to the Tour operator’s fault, the costs of the alternative transportation will be compensated for only if such new transportation has been arranged by the Tour operator or in cooperation with the Tour operator.
The transfer duration stated when booking is for information purposes and only applies to normal traffic conditions.
When booking, the Passenger shall determine the time of departure to arrive to the airport or any other destination, but the Tour operator may suggest to the Passenger a different, more realistic departure time in relation to the take-off time.
