You are responsible for your all activities, including all Bookings undertaken through your Account, including the use of your username and password. Any Booking which is made through your Account shall be deemed to be made by you.
By making a Booking on the Platform, you warrant and represent that you have the authority and legal right to use any Payment Method used to purchase the Booking.4.5

This structure provides an opt-in ‘follower’ function to enable parents/guardians to receive in-service notifications specific to each child’s travel.5. Bookings through the platform
We operate the Platform only and do not directly provide the Services ourselves. You acknowledge that we act as a disclosed agent of the Suppliers who offer their Services through the Platform.5.2
After you request a Booking we shall review or process your request. We shall then either accept or reject the Booking, following which you shall receive an e-mail from us confirming acceptance of the Booking (Booking Acknowledgement
) acknowledging that we have received your order for Services. No contract is formed until we have confirmed that the Booking has been accepted.
For the avoidance of doubt, we do not provide transportation services ourselves, and we are not a transportation provider or operator. We act as an intermediary between you and the Supplier only.
There are a number of ways to make Bookings through your Account. These options include:
a) a Booking made for a single Service on a one-off basis; and
b) a Booking made through a Travel Bundle.
We reserve the right to modify or otherwise amend our Services at any time in our discretion. Where we do so, we shall use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that such changes do not materially disadvantage you.
You may not make a Booking on behalf of any third party, unless you are the parent or legal guardian of a Child who will be the passenger. 6. Travel bundles6.1
In certain circumstances, such as where you have been referred by a school or employer or where it is offered on our Website, you may be able to purchase Travel Bundles. The purchase of a Travel Bundle is subject to these Terms and any additional terms set out at the point that you purchase the Travel Bundle. After purchasing a Travel Bundle, Travel Credits shall be added to your Account. Travel Credits can be used in lieu of making a payment when making a Booking, if available on the customer’s account.
The following terms shall apply to any Bookings which are made with a Travel Bundle:
Your subscription starts on the date that you sign up for the Travel Bundle and submit payment via a valid Payment Method or reactivate a pre-existing subscription.

7. The services

We will consider any such requests on the behalf of the relevant Supplier (acting in its absolute discretion). In particular, the Supplier shall not be required to fulfil any requests which would increase its obligations or liability (unless it is required to do so by law) when supplying the Services.7.2
Children shall only be permitted to travel on any of the Services when accompanied by an adult or where their travel has been approved by their parent or legal guardian and the Booking has been made by their parent or legal guardian.7.3

Our Suppliers reserve the right to refuse to transport or cease to transport any Passenger who is in breach of the Conditions of Carriage may require such a Customer to alight from a Vehicle. 1.1 If such conduct or breach of the Conditions of Carriage are reported to us, we may suspend or terminate your Account pending further investigation and you may be prohibited from using the Services in the future. Such decisions will be made by Zeelo in conjunction with the Client/Organisation.7.4

The prices on the Platform are subject to change at any time. The final price for the Services shall be that which was set out at the point that you made your Booking, as shall be confirmed within the Booking Acknowledgement. It is a condition of the Contract that you pay the price and you agree and undertake to make such payment using a Payment Method.
We may, from time to time, issue discount or promotional codes or vouchers which may discount the prices payable for a Booking. Such discount codes and vouchers are subject to any terms that may attach to them and may be withdrawn at any time without notice. Such codes and vouchers must be entered at the time of making the Booking and cannot be applied retrospectively.
Anything which is not expressly stated as being included in the price on the Platform shall not be provided as part of that Booking.
The prices that you pay shall be held by Zeelo on trust for the Supplier until such time that the relevant Booking has been completed. Such funds shall then be released to the relevant Supplier.
We reserve the right at all times to modify or cancel a Booking as a result of non-payment or payment reversal.9.7

Our liability
We shall use commercially reasonable endeavours to verify the information which is placed by the Suppliers onto the Platform. We shall not, however, be liable to you should any such information be incorrect or misleading. Your primary recourse for any breaches, mistakes, misrepresentations or any errors in the service shall be against the Supplier.
As part of our verification checks against Suppliers, we ask each Supplier to provide certain documentation relating to its insurance policies and any other policies, checks, procedures or documentation which it is required to have undertaken and/or to have in place by law or any regulations. We accept any such documentation provided by a Supplier in good faith and Zeelo shall not be liable in the event that it is later found that any such documentation was incorrect, untrue or fraudulently provided, that any information in such documents is inaccurate or incorrect, or that such documentation was not valid at the time of a claim against the Supplier.
You may request copies of any regulatory records which we hold in relation to a particular Supplier and we may, at our sole discretion or where we have a legal obligation to do so, provide you with such copies. We reserve the right to charge an administration fee in respect of any such copies that we provide, unless it is unlawful for us to make such a charge.
Nothing in these Terms is intended to limit or excludes Zeelo or any Supplier's liability for:
(a) death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
(b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
(c) anything else which cannot be limited or excluded by law.
The Customer hereby agrees and acknowledges that Zeelo shall under no circumstances be held liable for the act or omission of any Supplier, including but not limited to any breach of any Contract made between the Customer and the Supplier or in any other way in connection with a Booking, including for the negligence or breach of statutory duty by the Supplier, other than as expressly set out in clause 11.4.
Subject always to clause 11.4, we and all Suppliers shall under no circumstances whatsoever be liable to you for any losses, costs, damages or liability, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty or otherwise, for: (a) any loss of profit, revenue or anticipated savings; or (b) any indirect, special or consequential losses; (c) any inability to use the Platform (including any losses arising from your inability to make or change a Booking); (d) any loss of amenity or lost opportunity; and, if you are a business user, neither Zeelo nor any Supplier shall be liable for: (e) business interruption; (f) loss of anticipated savings; or (g) loss of business opportunity, goodwill or reputation.
Notwithstanding clause 11.5 and subject always to clause 11.4 and 11.6, our total liability:
a) in respect of all loss or damage arising under or in connection with each Contract, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, shall not (unless otherwise agreed in writing between the parties) exceed the price of the Booking paid by you to us; and
b) in respect of all other loss or damage other than that which is set out in clause a) above shall be limited to the greater of (i) £100; and (ii) the total sum amounts paid to us by you in respect of Bookings in the 12 months prior to the cause of action which gives rise to your claim.

You acknowledge and accept, however, that neither we nor the Suppliers have any control as to whether you may be using the Services to attend such an event, appointment or a venue, and whether or not we or the Supplier were made aware of such attendance in advance or otherwise neither we nor any relevant Supplier shall be liable to you for the cost of any ticket, missed opportunity or lost amenity that you may suffer as a result of the Services running late or being cancelled. You acknowledge that the Booking prices are calculated on this basis and that time shall not be of the essence in respect of any times set out within the Contract. 12. Cancellation or modification of booking and force majeure12.1
You do not have any right to cancel an agreement for the Services except as is set out in this clause 12. Once a Contract has been made it cannot be cancelled by you except in accordance with clause 12 below and in the event that you request that it is terminated you shall not be entitled to a refund or any reimbursement.
Notwithstanding clause 12.1, certain Suppliers or Clients may have their own cancellation or Booking modification policies and may allow you to cancel or modify a Booking. Where this is possible there shall be an option to do so set out within the relevant section of the Platform. In certain circumstances we may, on behalf of the Supplier or Client, choose to make part or full refunds of certain payments made by you in respect of a Booking.
Our right to modify/cancel a Booking: We reserve the right to cancel any Booking on behalf of the relevant Supplier and terminate the relevant Contract in the event that:
a) a payment has not been received from you in accordance with the terms of the Contract relating to that Booking (or where a payment is reversed by a payment processor);
b) you are in breach of any material term of the relevant Contract or any other contract that you may have with that Supplier; or
c) you breach any of the Conditions of Carriage while using the Services, irrespective of which Supplier was providing those Services (such that, for the avoidance of doubt, breaching the Conditions of Carriage for any single Contract shall permit us to terminate any other outstanding Contracts that you may have with any other Suppliers).
While the Suppliers shall reasonable endeavours to fulfil all Bookings, from time to time for operational reasons or due to forces outside of our reasonable control or that of the relevant Supplier, Services may need to be cancelled or withdrawn. Such cancellations may be made at short notice, although whenever a Service is cancelled in this way we shall use all reasonable endeavours to give you as much notice as we reasonably can. In the event that aBooking is cancelled by us pursuant to this clause 12.4 Zeelo may approve a refund at its discretion.
Delays relating to traffic (in the ordinary course of travel) or anything outside of the reasonable control of Zeelo or the Supplier shall not qualify for compensation or refund.
It is the Customer's responsibility to arrive at the departure point five minutes prior to the scheduled departure time. The Supplier shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Service departs promptly at the scheduled departure time (unless prevented, frustrated or delayed due to an event beyond the control of Zeelo and/or the Supplier).
In the event that a reimbursement is due to you, we shall arrange for such payment to be made to the same card / bank account as the original payment for which the Booking was made. We shall pay such reimbursement to you within 20 days of receipt from the compensation request from you. If your Booking was made as part of a TravelBundle, you shall be refunded the total amount paid divided by the number of journeys associated with that Travel Bundle.
The Supplier may, for operational reasons, need to make changes to the Services between the point that you receive the Booking Acknowledgement and the relevant Services commence. If there is a significant change to the Services (for example, a change to travel dates, a substantial change to the departure time, pick up or drop off locations or a material change to the proposed schedule for the Services) you may terminate the Contract without incurring any charges and request a refund. We shall use our reasonable endeavours to notify you of such changes to Bookings using the contact details provided by you to Zeelo.
Force Majeure: Neither Zeelo nor the Supplier shall be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of the obligations under a Contract that is caused by a Force Majeure Event.
We can suspend or terminate your use of the Platform at any time by suspending or terminating your Account if you are in breach of any of these Terms (including any document referred to in them) or if we have reasonable grounds to believe that you have or are likely to breach any of these Terms. 13.2
In the event that we suspend your Account, pending further investigation of such breach, if our reason for suspending your account is sufficiently serious and amounts to a material breach of these Terms (including but not limited to a breach of the Conditions of Carriage), we may (i) cancel your Account; and (ii) notify any Suppliers with whom you have a Booking, and each such Supplier may, acting in its sole discretion, cancel any pending Booking and refund you any amounts that you have prepaid in respect of that Booking.13.3
In the event that we cancel your Account following a material breach of these Terms, all Bookings shall terminate immediately. Depending upon the circumstances, you may be entitled to a refund of all or part of the amount you have paid in connection with any such Bookings in accordance with our cancellation policy. If you owe us or any Supplier any money at the point that your Account is terminated, we may set-off any refunds that would have been due to you to pay us and/or those Suppliers. 13.4
In the event that we cancel or the Supplier cancel any Bookings for any reason other than a material breach of the terms of the relevant Contract or these Terms, we shall return to you any funds which we hold in respect of any pending Bookings, provided always that we reserve the right to deduct from such funds an amount equivalent to any monies which are properly due and owed to us or a Supplier.14.
