The service descriptions provided in the Terms and Conditions, Products page on the website or any other mode of communication including but not limited to the booking confirmation and corresponded at the time of booking may vary at the time of service as Airport Authorities have discretion to make changes without any notification. Due to recent security measures by most governments and airport security authorities, it has been a practise that Fast Track services are suspended and out of ordinary course is in place and all passengers have to follow those temporary restrictions.

5. Pricing & Inclusions/Exclusions

Prices are based on the currency of your choice at the time of booking. All provided quotations are only valid for that time and a late booking surcharge will be applicable for all bookings confirmed within 48 hours from the service time. Kindly note that this surcharge will be applicable even if you have received the quote but not confirmed the service booking.

Price quotations and price tables may change without notice however it will not affect any confirmed bookings. If a material amendment to an order or Booked Service is requested by the traveller or booker and is accepted by YQNG then the amended price will use the exchange rates and tariffs subsisting at the time of change and additional charges may be payable.

The base price quoted at the time of ordering will include all knowable charges for the Service that has been ordered.

YQNG reserves the right to invalidate the Customer discount or special-offer pricing in case of the Customer making any change to the service originally ordered.

6. Payment

No contract between the Customer and YQNG will come into existence until the order becomes a confirmed booking. A service is a confirmed booking (a “confirmed booking”) once

  • YQNG has issued a booking reference number;
  • YQNG has issued an order confirmation;
  • YQNG has received payment in full;

In the same way that you may cancel and receive a full refund up to 48 hours prior to the service time, YQNG may amend the price quoted if the subsisting selling price changes, due to underlying cost changes, exchange rate movements, system error or human error. In the event that the revised price quote is not acceptable to you a full refund will immediately be made. YQNG will not change the price of a confirmed booking, as defined above.

Payment by credit card is required to make a reservation. Payment will be listed as “YQ Now Group” on the credit card statement.

There is a 3.5% charge or service fee for processing credit-card payments.

The amount charged by YQNG will be the amount due in the currency used for the booking, which is in US dollars, Pounds Sterling or Euros, as you select at the time of booking. YQNG cannot know or influence the exchange rate and policies that are applied by your bank or card merchant in determining the final charge made.

YQNG may take whatever steps it reasonably believes to be necessary 
(i) to protect your card details (which will be in YQNG’s possession) from misuse; and/or 
(ii) to protect itself and its Agent from any delay in receiving payment for a completed Service. Such steps may include pre-authorising the charge and verifying the card details and the card’s available credit limit.

A chargeback is when you dispute a charge made on your card. If you make an unjustified charge back, YQNG will charge a US$75 penalty fee and will report all unjustified chargebacks to ChargeBackProtection.org, which may have the effect of banning you from placing orders with any business that uses ChargeBackProtection.org. Examples of unjustified chargebacks are
(i) if you issue a frivolous, false or unjustified complaint,
(ii) if you start an unwarranted dispute with your card company, 
(iii) if you refuse to pay for a properly delivered Service and any charges thereto, 
(iv) if you refuse to pay properly due amendment, cancellation or no-show charges.

Refunds will be made provided that you have paid in full and that the booking is eligible for refund as confirmed in writing by YQNG. For a booking originally paid for by credit/charge card, any refund will automatically process to the original credit/charge card account that paid for the booking and no other methods of refund payment will be possible. No refunds will be made for credit card charge or service fee.

7. Cancellation, Amendments and Variations

YQNG is a fixed price service and the price charged is for the Booked Service.

If the Booked Service is amended or cancelled before the service time, or is varied during its performance (a “Change”) then YQNG and its Airport Agents may require payment of additional fees.

Any charge incurred due to an amendment before the service time will be billed and collected by YQNG from the nominated credit/charge card.

YQNG is unable to accept amendments within 24 hours before service time. If,an amendment is required more than 24 hours before the service time,  a Service can be amended, subject to an amendment surcharge to the Cardholder’s card by the YQNG as follows

There is an amendment surcharge of 50% of total booking cost for all amendments made within 48 hours of service time. All amendments made outside 48 hours are free of charge. Some amendments within 48 hours of the service time are not allowed and will be treated as a cancellation, you will be required to make a new booking. Such amendments are including but not limited to change of date of service, or change of service time by more than an hour or change of location of service.

No refunds will be offered for any cancellations within 48 hours of the service time.

All cancellations made outside 48 hours are free of charge.
