Charges will be made on the bases set out below. The rate of each charge shall be fixed and
revised by Aero Taxis from time to time entirely at its discretion. Charges prevailing at any
particular time are set out in Aero Taxis tariff card available on application to it. Upon any
change in charges the Client will be sent a revised copy of the tariff card indicating the date
on which the new tariff takes effect. Items and bases of charging are:
a) A minimum fixed charge for every hiring.
b) A meter charge based on the current tariff laid down by the City of Southampton as shown on the taxi meter fitted to the taxi. Meter charges commence after a maximum of ten minutes have elapsed from the booked time for the hiring of the taxi and will cease on the conclusion of the booking. Aero Taxis will use all reasonable efforts to minimise the meter charge incurred but reserves the right to charge the full amount actually incurred.
c) Where waiting time in excess of ten minutes occurs, at the pickup location, an additional waiting charge shall be levied, calculated at the rate indicated on the tariff card.
d) An administration charge of 10% per month will be levied on all accounts, exclusive of V.A.T. and for each month separately thereafter. This administration charge only, attracts V.A.T. at the current basic rate.
e) Aero Taxis reserves the right to request a sum in advance of opening an account to the equivalent of the two months use as an act of good faith, this money to be held against future meter charges incurred by the Client.
f) V.A.T. will be charged on any service provided which is not a Fare charge or part thereof.
g) Special charges may be incurred in particular cases.
