General standard terms and conditions
Skytaxi is conducting its services in accordance with the following general standard terms and conditions, description of services and pricelists. Deviating terms and conditions do not apply, even if Skytaxi is not in direct contradiction. Deviations of these conditions need the explicit written acknowledgement of Skytaxi. A contract is only valid if confirmed by Skytaxi.
Scope of services
The scope of services is exclusively determined in accordance with the written order confirmation by Skytaxi or subsidiary after the written offer from Skytaxi. Information included in brochures, service catalogues, pricelists and similar documents is only binding insofar as reference is made explicitly. Transport is conducted according to the rules and regulations of the StVO and the PbefG. Customers have to adhere to the instructions of Skytaxi or the drivers. Should customers act against the instructions, or pose a threat in accordance with the StVO to the safety of the traffic through distracting or impairing the driver, Skytaxi is permitted to exclude them from transport. Should this be the case, Skytaxi will charge the full fare including the fixed price or price per kilometre plus all additional and special services.
Pick up from the airport (Airport transfer)
Skytaxi must be informed about any changes in the arranged pick up time immediately, regardless of the reason. Damage(s) arising from the delay of any such message are at the expense of the customer. The Skytaxi driver will be waiting at the previously arranged time at the respective meeting point, carrying either a sign with the customer’s name or the company logo (earlier or later provision is to be arranged when booking), and will be waiting for 45 minutes without incurring additional charges. If the flight is extremely delayed, we cannot guarantee pick-up, but we will do our best. A phone number for the guest to use to get hold of the driver is included in the letter of booking confirmation. Should there be no success in contacting either the driver or the customer after 60 minutes, the driver will return to Vienna without the customer. The service agreement will still be valid and the full fare will be charged. Additional waiting time as desired by the customer will be calculated according to the current price list.
