We reserve the right to send you an upgraded vehicle in replacement of the one originally chosen by you if it is unavailable at that time.

The online booking or any bookings made over the phone do not include any Toll charges. Therefore wherever applicable, the driver will ask the passenger for money or the customer can choose to pay by credit/debit card as per their convenience.
No show means if a passenger fails to meet the driver on the pickup time and fails to make a contact with the driver or the customer support team. This includes bookings from home, offices, hotels or any other private address.
In case of pick up from an airport, if the passenger fails to meet the driver within an hour of the flight landing time and doesn’t make any contact either with the driver or the customer support team in order to update us on the status of their flight, it will be considered as No show. However, if the passenger is late but manages to make a contact, normal waiting time charges will apply.
Also, any bookings made for wrong date and/or time will be considered as No show.
Please note that in an event of No show, any bookings with a pickup outside of Sheffield and paid by credit/debit card will not be refunded. In the event of a No show for a pickup within Sheffield and paid by credit/debit card will be refunded 50% of the fare.

taxiport will accept no liability for any missed flights, severe traffic delays, road closures, accidents, breakdowns, extreme weather conditions or any circumstances that were unforeseen. There could be unpredicted traffic delays and therefore the passengers are advised to arrive at the airport terminal at least 2 hours prior to the flight departure. The company will not be held liable if a minimum of 2 hours check in time was not allowed and the customer misses the flight due to this. The company will not be held responsible if the passengers do not wait for their driver and arrange an alternative transport. No refund will be given in this case.
There will be 50% surcharge on 25th, 26th, 31st December and 1st January. In an event of natural calamity such as flood, landslide, snow or other extreme weather conditions, the amount of surcharge will be notified to you during the booking process.
