Customers are asked not to touch the handles of the vehicle and to let the driver open or close the doors. Hydroalcoholic gel is available on board.
TIME, DURATION AND PLACE OF PERFORMANCE
The timetables are defined according to normal traffic conditions and the course of transport. The client is aware that unforeseen events may occur. The definition of a safety margin will make it possible to absorb these hazards, knowing that if it is exceeded, it risks upsetting the organisation of the journey, which must always guarantee compliance with the regulations on driving times and driver rest periods.
The vehicles are hired for a specific service, therefore, except in exceptional cases, we will not make any other route than the one agreed. The choice of route, unless the client has specific requirements, must be left to the transporter and will always be based on the shortest or fastest route. It is the carrier's responsibility to inform the client of this before the start of the service. The execution times are given as an indication and approximate unless the company Corse VTC makes a formal commitment.
The service begins on the day, at the time and from the place agreed between the client and the company Corse VTC and ends once the destination is reached.
