Terms and conditions for passengers booking Meet and Assist products

Meet and Assist and Luggage Porter Terms and Conditions

May 24, 2018

These are the terms and conditions on which we supply your Meet and Assist and Baggage Porter products to you. Please read through these carefully.

These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide the services to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. These terms and conditions apply to Meet and Assist and Baggage Porter bookings made on the official Manchester Airport website.

When booking a product on these websites you will be contracting with  Manchester Airport.

These terms and conditions ("Terms") apply to all bookings for Meet and Assist made via the Manchester Airport website , the Manchester Airports Group Customer Contact Centre and our sales agents (you will be provided with a copy of these terms when you order with our sales agents and it is that version of our terms and conditions that applies to your purchase).

In these Terms, references to "the Airport" are references to Manchester Airport Plc. In these Terms "you" and "your" refer to the person who makes a booking for our services and "we" and "us" refers to the Airport, as described above.

Any contract made between you and us via these websites is governed by English law and any dispute between us will be resolved exclusively in the courts of England and Wales. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.

The official Manchester Airport website is owned by Manchester Airport Plc (Company Number: 01960988) which is incorporated in England, and its registered office is FAO Sylvia Welsh Manchester, Professional Services Limited, PO BOX 532, Town Hall, Manchester, M60 2LA.

The Airport reserves the right, without notice, to amend the specification of the products or services presented on this site and to discontinue any product or service and all bookings are subject to this right.

The Airport reserves the right to change these Terms at any time, but once you have made a booking the Terms which apply are those which were on the websites at the time of booking. We recommend that you always read these Terms before booking, to satisfy yourself that you accept them.

These Terms, along with all other relevant terms and conditions that are referred to in these Terms and any other terms referred to throughout the booking process (including those available online from third party operators and our sales agents), constitute the entire agreement between you and the Airport with respect to the sale of the relevant services.

No person has any authority to vary or alter these Terms and Conditions unless such variation is in writing under the hand of the Company Secretary or a Director of the applicable Airport.

Although we attempt to provide our customers with a satisfactory service should you have any complaints, please use our online feedback process based on the Airport in which your car park booking was made, as follows:

Should you need to contact us, please call our Customer Contact Centre on the following free phone numbers:

Manchester Airport queries:          0808 169 7030

If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address you provided to us in your order.

Placing your order

You can place your order on our booking site, and as part of the process we will let you know what is included in your Meet and Assist product and the price. Portering of baggage does not form part of the Meet and Assist service. Should you wish to have your bags portered, there will be an option to book this additional service during the Meet and Assist booking process.

Bookings can only be made more than 72 hours prior to your flight between the hours of 0400-2300, and we will not be able to accept your order if your booking falls outside of these restrictions

The prices listed above include the first 4 hours of service. After the first 4 hours of service, additional charges may apply

Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.

If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the services. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the service or because we are unable to provide the services on the date you have specified.

When you place your order you will be required to provide your contact and travel details including your flight details, contact number and email address. We will provide a courtesy call ahead of your arrival to confirm details about your booking and flight to ensure we can tailor our service to you. Failure to provide information either at the time of booking or when requested by us may result in us being unable to provide all or part of our Meet and Assist product to you.

Our Meet and Assist products

The details of what is available as part of our Meet and Assist product is outlined at the time of booking. Some of the services are subject to availability and we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide these services to you as part of the product. This will be highlighted as part of the product description. We will, where ever possible, let you know which services are not available in advance of your arrival at the airport. The provision of services may be subject to airline approval, and in some instances will not be available. You are not entitled to a refund if a service flagged as ‘subject to availability’ is not available.

Our product is available to passengers over the age of 18, or to passengers under 18 years olds provided they are accompanied by a parent or guardian over 18 years of age. A maximum of 2 people are permitted per booking and therefore only 1 under 18 year old is permitted per booking.

 

Our rights to make changes

We may change the services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, for example if there is a change in security requirements at the airport.

Providing the Meet and Assist product

We are not responsible for delays outside our control, including delays to services that are provided within the airport by third parties such as check-in, immigration and baggage reclaim. If our supply of the services is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event.

You will  have booked a time slot to arrive at the airport as part of the Meet and Assist product, if you do not arrive within   30 minutes of the time slot we reserve the right to cancel your Meet and Assist product and we will not be liable to refund you for the product.

Details of where to meet your Meet and Assist Concierge will be detailed in your confirmation email. Should you have any questions please contact our Customer Contact Centre on 0808 169 7030 ahead of your travel. You will also be provided with a courtesy call before you arrive where the Meet and Assist Concierge will provide you with a direct contact number to contact on the day.

If you get delayed on the way to the airport please let us know as soon as possible by using the contact details provided in your confirmation email, courtesy call, or SMS text message, and we will try to rearrange your arrival time slot. If you do not show up at the Airport within 30 minutes of your allocated time slot, you will be deemed a ‘no-show’ and you shall not be entitled to any refund. 

You are responsible for complying with the airport security and immigration requirements, and we are not responsible for any delay that is caused by your failure to comply with these requirements (including where you are required to repeat security processes).

Providing the Baggage Porter Service

This service is only available to customers who have booked the Meet and Assist service therefore all above Terms and Conditions will apply. Customers will have the choice to book this additional service during the booking process of Meet and Assist

A maximum of 2 check-in bags and 2 carry-on bags are permitted per booking, with a maximum of 22kg per bag.

Passengers must comply with airline terms and conditions (including any baggage restrictions) at all times. Any excess baggage charges must be paid by the passenger directly to the relevant airline. Manchester Airport will not intervene in any dispute between an airline and passengers. Passengers using our services are encouraged to carry appropriate travel insurance.

It is the responsibility of the passenger to ensure luggage remains in their line of sight at all times, in line with airline requirements.

We have a responsibility to ensure the health and safety of our staff and passengers so if your luggage requires additional equipment and/or manpower or falls out of the restrictions provided above, additional charges may apply or customers will be asked to carry the excess.Your right to cancel

You can cancel the contract by giving not less than 24 hours’ notice prior to your travel by visiting the website listed above and following the online instructions. You will receive written confirmation of the cancellation to the email address stipulated. In the event of any problems, you may alternatively cancel by phoning us on the relevant number above.

Cancellations must be advised at least 24 hours prior to your travel date.

ALL BOOKINGS CANCELLED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE TRAVEL DATE WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.

Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation.

Our right to end the contract

We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a service at any time by writing to you if:

  • you do not make any payment to us when it is due; or
  • you do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide the services.

We reserve the right if prevented from supplying the services for any reason to cancel the contract and, where we cancel due to our own inability to provide the services we will provide a full refund. We will attempt to provide as much notice as is possible.

Price and payment

The price of the Meet and Assist product and Baggage Porter service (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the products advised to you is correct. However, please see below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the service you order.

It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the service’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the service's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

We will take payment when you place your order; we accept payment from all major debit and credit cards and via PayPal.

Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen.

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the services.

We are not responsible for the loss of or damage to your property during your time at the airport, and we are not responsible for supervising or monitoring your property while you are at the airport.

We only supply the services for domestic and private use. If you use the services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

We are not responsible for ensuring you get to your flight, any delays to your flight or any for any other part of travel plans. You remain responsible for ensuring you are at your gate to board your flight on time.

How we may use your personal information

We will use your personal information in accordance with our privacy policy.

Other important terms

We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the contract.

Where you book other products as part of your booking (for example if you have booked our Escape Lounge or any Car Parking services) then the relevant terms & conditions set out on our website will apply to your use of those products.

You cannot transfer these services to anyone else and the person named at the time of the booking must be present.

If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
