The Suppliers can advertise their transportation services in the platform, and the users can use the platforms to make reservations with the Suppliers. By making a reservation through us you enter into a legally binding agreement regarding transportations with the Suppliers. We then act as an intermediary between you and the Supplier, sending your reservation details to the Supplier and sending you the booking confirmation and other relevant information related to the booking. We also provide an overview of previous trips. By accepting these Terms, you hereby confirm that we do not provide any transportation services and that all taxi transportation services are provided by independent suppliers.
The information disclosed in our platforms are based on data provided by the Suppliers. The Suppliers are responsible for providing updated data on rates, availability etc.

Your booking request will be handled by our servers. We will send your booking information to the Suppliers and check for availability. The booking request will be dispatched to the taxi car closest to your location, that fits your preferences and that is available. An automatic booking confirmation will be sent to you when we have received confirmation from a Supplier that your request has been accepted. Please read the booking confirmation carefully and check whether it is correct and contact us immediately should any information in the booking confirmation not correspond with your request.
The time for driving to pick up, start of the journey, and arrival at the final destination depends on various factors such as. when the order is made, the availability of cars in the area where the pickup is to take place and the journey begin, the traffic and weather conditions and the demand for other journeys at the time the journey is to take place. It is the traveler's responsibility to plan his trip well in advance, but taking into account the above. Information for the assessment can be obtained from Cabonline customer service or in Cabonline's app for booking travel. However, the points stated are assumptions and recommendations and not binding on Cabonline.
