A credit card is required to be on file for all trip bookings and rentals. A Credit card authorization form will be sent and must be returned and signed.

 

Upon payment, the customer acknowledges that Charge-Backs or Unauthorized Purchases/Transactions initiated via their bank and/or creditor should be recognized as an attempt to fraudulently keep the above amount paid to the company while receiving reimbursement of service provided.

 

Any unauthorized chargebacks are fraudulent and will be resolved through the company payment processing firm dispute center in fairness to both Hop In Bus Service LLC, and the customer.

Deposit:

In order to secure a date or trip, a $300 deposit per vehicle is required to confirm the quoted date(s) of service or trip. 

 

Your quoted date(s) of service or trip is confirmed once the $300 deposit per vehicle payment is received and cleared through processing. A receipt will be sent from Hop In Bus Service LLC to your email address. 

 

A late $300 deposit per vehicle payment once the company, Hop In Bus Service LLC, has no more availability for the quoted trip date, will be refunded due to failure to provide the required $300 deposit per vehicle payment amount in a timely fashion.

 

Deposits will be forfeited for trips canceled less than seven days before the departure date.

Gratuity:

It is customary for ALL Coach Bus charters to tip your driver(s) before or at the end of your trip. The standard tip is 15% of the total cost of your Coach Bus rental. The standard per person tip rate is $5 per person, per day for Coach Bus charters.

 

Additional Surcharge Policy:

If necessary, after your trip, if there are any changes in price because of tolls, parking, damages, or time and mileage overages (yawn, traffic, and flight delays), we may notify you and offer payment options or we’ll charge your previously authorized card again for those costs.
