International Services:

Black Car Limousine Services (herein this paragraph referred to as “Black Car Limousine”) enables its clients (herein this paragraph referred to as “Users”) to book international travel services over its online platform, through the association with other online platforms, as well as through the applications for mobile devices (“Apps”). The service of Black Car Limousine is made up only by the arrangement of ground transportation services for a User with an affiliate transportation service provider (herein this paragraph referred to as “ATSP”) as an intermediate, and not in the provision of the travel service itself.

These Terms and Conditions (herein this paragraph referred to as “Terms”) are part of every agreement between Users with the arrangement of international travel services by Black Car Limousine. They also describe in detail the travel services which are offered through the direct entitlement created by Black Car Limousine between the User and the TSP.

Deviations from the User Terms, even in the case of letters of confirmation and unreserved services, are hereby rejected. Only if the management of Black Car Limousine has expressly agreed in writing, does this not apply.

Black Car Limousine, acting as an intermediate, simply arranges for the User an entitlement to have ground transportation services provided by an ATSP independent of Black Car Limousine.

Therefore, Black Car Limousine makes the necessary arrangements with the ATSP in its own name, which provides the User with an entitlement to be serviced by the ATSP (“Third-Party Beneficiary”) for the benefit of the User. Consequentially, Users are entitled to demand travel services and other claims directly from the ATSP.

The User uses Black Car Limousine only as an intermediate or an arranger and not as the actual transport service. The compensation claim of Black Car Limousine is made up of arrangement fees as well as the advance payment made by Black Car Limousine to the ATSP.

By submitting a completed booking form via any of the methods mentioned above, by email or by telephone (“Ride Request” of the User) to Black Car Limousine the User makes an offer for the conclusion of an arrangement agreement. The object of this agreement is the arrangement of the travel service to meet the User’s Ride Request.

Black Car Limousine next may send the User, either via email or via telephone call, confirmation of the receipt of the ride details for the travel service which is to be arranged. Through this, Black Car Limousine confirms only the receipt of the User’s Ride Request.

The arrangement agreement between Black Car Limousine and the User for the requested travel service comes into effect only through a separate statement (“Booking Confirmation”) by Black Car Limousine via email. The User themselves is then entitled to demand the transportation services from the ATSP directly as well as to make further claims directly against the ATSP and not hold Black Car Limousine liable for any damages or losses incurred in the course of such services.

By proceeding and concluding the international ground transportation services requested, the User hereby acknowledges and accepts the Terms stated above.
