There are cases where passengers underestimate the amount of luggage they are carrying or the amount of space their luggage is likely to take up. To resolve such issues we either provide you with the option of sending you a larger vehicle subject to new agreed quote or if a larger vehicle has arrived but you had only booked a standard size vehicle than again you have two options: first one being that you reject the drivers claim that you need a larger vehice then the office will send a standard car at which point their should be no issue or second option is after assesing the luggage you agree with the driver than a new quote will be given to you.
