Transport Conditions:
All Waiheke Shuttles transport is pre-booked and we cannot guarantee that changes will be able to be made to existing bookings within 48 hours from the date of travel, the customer will still be responsible for payment of bookings made where such changes are unable to be made. During busy periods we may be unable to change a booking time and we are unable to change any booking times within 1 hour of the scheduled time. Also with return pickups from venues during busy periods our drivers are unable to wait longer than 10 minutes after the scheduled pickup time. If our driver are busy they will advise your group that they are waiting for you and Waiheke Shuttles takes no responsibility for having to leave the venue without your group if your group fails to arrive. Waiheke Shuttles has no responsibility for cancellations or delays due to weather conditions or ferry timetable and capacity issues however we will take all available measures to cover pre-booked travel when groups have been delayed due to these issues. If the number of people who have turned up for a booking is lower than in the booking confirmation and no prior notification has been given with in a 48 hour period, payment for the full number in the booking is still required. There is NO REFUND for passengers who fail to arrive at their designated pickup point at the arranged time and failed to notify us.

Waiheke Shuttles drivers are under instructions not to allow alcohol to be taken onto the shuttles. They are also under instructions not to carry intoxicated or disorderly groups or individuals and there may be occasions where drivers will refuse access to our vehicles by such groups or individuals.
