Under these circumstances we accept no responsibility for any re-booking costs. We reserve the right at our absolute discretion to decline or accept bookings made. Any automatic booking confirmations for such bookings are conditional and contingent on our view of any financial risks, potential ride confirmation notice dispatch delays, or other regulations that may apply.
