2. Our driver and or supporting staff have satisfied themselves that they are unable to pick the passenger up for whatever reason.

Where a driver has to wait beyond the appointed time to collect a passenger, whether it be the fault of the passenger or customer or arises from circumstances beyond their control, the customer will be liable to pay Caring Mobility Services Ltd for the waiting time.
