Terms & Conditions

On booking a particular date a fifty percent deposit is required and the balance is to be paid and funds cleared a full 30 days prior to the event.
You may be sent a reminder but this is not guaranteed.
No dates can be held without this deposit. On paying the deposit you agree to Police Panda Car Terms and Conditions.
The terms ‘us’ and ‘we’ are also deemed to mean Police Panda Car.

If the booking is cancelled less than 30 days prior to event then the whole amount shall be forfeited. The event can be rescheduled but should there be a price increase during this time then the difference must be paid.

You are paying for a classic vehicle and as such it’s performance can not be compared with a modern vehicle. That having been said, should a problem arise from a fault with the vehicle either prior to the event or on the day Police Panda Car will attempt to source a replacement (a chauffeur driven and insured for the purpose classic car) This car is a ‘one off’ an exact replacement is unlikely. If the replacement vehicle (sought by Police Panda Car) is more expensive no additional charge will be made by us.
Should this not be possible due to the urgency to arrive at the venue within a given time frame, then a taxi service will be contacted by us or your representative (with our permission unless they intend to pay for it) and asked to carry out the journey at reasonable mileage rates. The balance between the cost of the taxi service and the full amount paid to us will be refunded.

If the booking strays from that originally made, due to the hirer or their representatives changing a route or making additional pickups at short notice, then additional mileage will be charged at £2 per mile plus any extra time involved. If this extra mileage takes the driver further away  in the opposite direction (from the point he expected to be at ) then this can be charged at £3 per mile to get him back to that point for his return journey to base.
If the time goes over due to the hire being altered from that originally made by the hirer and through no fault of Police Panda Car then this can be charged at £100 per hour but is at the discretion of Police Panda Car.
It is not guaranteed that we will be able to stay the additional time as we may have another booking to attend but this happens very rarely..

The principle hirer (the person who paid Police Panda Car for the hire) is responsible for  the following:-

  • The conduct of all passengers deemed to be entitled to be in the vehicle (those mentioned at the time of booking) it is not guaranteed that this can be altered on the day.
  • No children under 16 years of age will be allowed in the vehicle whilst it is moving.
  • No smoking or drinking are allowed in the vehicle with the exception of champagne and glasses for a wedding photo shoot for example.
  • Should the vehicle be damaged by passengers then a charge can be made for this. This would apply whether deliberate or accidental.
