3 Information about Gett
The Site and the App are operated by GT GetTaxi (UK) Limited, trading as “Gett” (“Gett”), which is a company incorporated and registered in England and Wales with company number 07603404 and whose registered office is at 64 Princes Court, 88 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge SW3 1ET. The main trading address is Level 3, Seal House, 1 Swan Lane, London EC4R 3TN.
The access to, and use of, the Site and the App is free of charge.
As part of the booking process for every trip you book, or when you order any other services, using the Site and/or the App, you agree to allow Gett to make a pre-authorisation payment of £1 (one pound) (“Pre-Authorisation Payment”), on your registered credit/debit card. This amount will not be debited from your account at the time of booking but is ring-fenced for Gett. If, after using Gett’s services, full payment is not successfully made by you for the services, the Pre-Authorisation Payment may be used to settle or as part payment towards the outstanding amount with Gett. Please note that your access to the Site and the App may be blocked or suspended at Gett’s sole option until the full outstanding amount is settled. Gett reserves the right to permanently close down your account if you regularly fail to make payment or if Gett reasonably deems any amount outstanding is significant.
In the event that, after booking, no services are provided by Gett (for example, if your order for the services is cancelled) or no monies are owed to Gett on your account, the full amount of the Pre-Authorisation Payment will be released by Gett. Gett endeavours to release this amount to you as soon as possible, but your bank may take up to 72 hours to complete any release of the Pre-Authorisation Payment.
Due to the nature of the services we provide, Gett reserves the right to change the Pre-Authorisation Payment amount and/or to introduce a fee for use of the Site and/or the App, at any time by notifying you in advance of the start of any services.
Your use of the services we provide may result in charges to you for the services or goods you receive from one or more third parties (“Third-Party Charges”). In such circumstances, we may facilitate your payment of the applicable Third-Party Charges. Payment of such Third-Party Charges via our facilitation shall be considered to be the same as a direct payment made by you to the third party, and Gett shall have no liability in connection with such transactions. Third-Party Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes where required by law. Third-Party Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Gett. In the event of a dispute or negotiation between you and a third party to which Third-Party Charges are owed, Gett will issue refunds or process payments for additional amounts as agreed between you and the third party, in response to instructions from the third party.
From time to time, we may offer coupons for the purchase of certain services we offer. We may in our sole discretion establish, modify, suspend, end, reject or refuse to honor such coupons at any time, with or without notice to you. Coupons are limited to one use per customer. We may post additional terms regarding the coupons on the Site or in the App.
Coupons may be exercised only through purchase by your registered debit/credit card, and they are non-transferable. Coupons may not be converted to cash and may not be used to cover outstanding debt. Coupons may not be exercised following expiry date.
Credit cards/Debit cards do not include pre-paid cards, one-time cards, gift cards, virtual cards, anonymous cards and re-loadable cards.

29 Cancellation and No-Show
You may cancel your order without charge within 3 minutes from the time the driver is assigned and on the way.
Cancellations made after 3 minutes will incur a cancellation fee of £3.00, however, if a cancellation is made after the driver has already arrived or if you fail to cancel and do not show up for the ride (no-show), a £5.00 cancellation fee will be applied. Gett charges these cancellation fees to be fair to your driver: when a driver commits to your trip request, it costs them time and money to get to your location.
For future bookings, cancellations made within 15 minutes of the scheduled pick-up time or no-shows will incur a cancellation fee of £5.00.
Please note, that if your driver is running more than 5 minutes behind the provided estimated time of arrival (or for future bookings, 5 minutes behind the scheduled pick-up time), and an attempt to cancel is then made or a no-show occurs, you will not be charged a cancellation fee.
