2.2A P&T Responsibilities

Within 24 hours of receiving a charter request, P&T will provide a written cost estimate and itinerary confirmation. The estimates are for planning purposes only; final charges are based on actual use. P&T will supply a safe, properly maintained bus, a qualified driver, and fuel. Routing will be provided, if requested.

If P&T must cancel the charter request, P&T can contact another charter com--pany, if the customer wishes. In that case, the customer must then pay the other charter company's entire fee.


2.2B Customer Responsibilities

Charter Service customers must provide the following.


2.2C Cancellations

Charters must be cancelled at least 24 hours before pick-up to avoid a $25.00 late cancellation charge. Charters cancelled within 45 minutes of pick-up time will be assessed a minimum usage charge, ie., two hours use plus 20 miles at the current rate.
