Schedules are based on normal traffic and transport conditions. The customer 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 organization of the trip, which must always guarantee compliance with regulations on driving times and driver rest periods.

Vehicles are rented for a defined service, so unless there are exceptional circumstances, we will not make any other journey than the one agreed. The choice of itinerary, unless otherwise requested by the customer, must be left to the carrier and will always be based on the shortest or fastest route. It is the carrier's responsibility to inform the customer before the start of the service. Turnaround times are given as an indication and are approximate unless Corse VTC gives a formal undertaking to the contrary. 

The service begins on the day, at the time and from the location agreed between the customer and Corse VTC and ends once the destination has been reached.


Any modification requested by the customer during the course of the service will necessarily entail a supplement if, and only if, the distance or time initially planned for the service is extended. Corse VTC reserves the right to refuse any itinerary modifications if this would compromise other customers or services already booked at the time of transport.


Our services are payable in advance at the time of booking, or upon pick-up on the day of service by prior arrangement, except for "pro" customers. For companies and local authorities who have specified their invoicing details at the time of booking, payment will be made by bank transfer within 30 days of the invoice date.

Payment methods accepted on the day of the service are cash, credit card (Visa, MasterCard) or Paypal whenever possible. Advance payment is possible by bank transfer or cheque up to 72 hours before the start of the service.


The customer will receive an invoice for all payments of €25 or more, and below this amount on request only. In the event of late payment, late payment interest equal to 1.5 times the legal interest rate will be applied automatically and without prior notice.


Corse VTC cannot be held responsible for delays due to circumstances beyond its control (blocked roads, detour, traffic jams, weather conditions, demonstrations, immobilization of the vehicle for various reasons, strikes, exceptional closures of certain sites, etc.), or in other cases of force majeure. 

Luggage or any other object belonging to the customer is the sole responsibility of the customer. Corse VTC will not be held responsible for the theft, loss or misplacement of any object whatsoever left in the vehicle once the service has been completed, and therefore accepts no liability whatsoever. It goes without saying that any item left in the vehicle will be returned to you as soon as possible.

Corse VTC recognizes the obligation to take the necessary measures to preserve the safety of the vehicle's occupants and reserves the right to refuse any person who would compromise the safety and good preservation of the vehicle.

Corse VTC cannot be held responsible for any accident occurring while boarding or alighting from the vehicle. 

The transport of animals (except guide dogs) is normally forbidden unless the Corse VTC company has been informed in advance and has approved the authorization. No animals will be accepted in our vehicles except in a cage provided for this purpose. Transport box rental is available on request and according to the geographical area of the service.


Corse VTC's liability is limited to the clauses of its insurance contract, its professional insurance policy "subscribed for the transport of passengers for hire or reward", which provides unlimited cover for passengers transported for hire or reward on board the vehicle in the event of an accident involving personal injury, in accordance with current French regulations: article L3120.4 of the transport code and in application of the decree of April 18, 1966 relating to the conditions for exercising the profession of Véhicule de Transport avec Chauffeur (VTC) or "capacitaire".


The Corse VTC company is committed to respecting the privacy of its customers, and the information collected from them will under no circumstances be passed on to third parties.


The vehicle and driver will be provided with all the documents required for the smooth running of the service. The number of pieces of luggage is limited to the loading capacity of the vehicle, however each piece of luggage may not exceed a maximum of 20 kilos per person transported, and must not present any risk of damage to the vehicle. Failure to comply with these conditions will result in an additional charge.


Any claim will only be accepted within 48 hours of the performance of the service. Once this time limit has been exceeded, only the Ajaccio Commercial Court will have jurisdiction.
