The Bond automatically becomes your damage bond, once paid. It can not be used towards the fee due for the service at the point of pick-up or if required to be paid in advance. The bond can be refunded by the chosen Sub-Contractor at the conclusion of the Charter after an inspection by the Driver/Host for any damage and cleanliness. However usually we refund it back to you if cleared by operations and will require your Bank Account details to return it to. It is your responsibility to ask the driver if he is happy to recommend the refund after inspection.The Sub-Contractor might refund on the spot or as per their terms and conditions after the service back to your bank account. This ensures the rightful person receives the bond.
We, therefore, require your Bank BSB and Account numbers to forward to the chosen Representative. If you have any dispute it can only be solved between the Sub-Contractor [Vehicle Owner Operator] and yourselves.
