When the Chartering Party requests any change in service that results in an increase in kilometers or hours to that specific charter, an additional charge may be necessary for that additional service. A detailed itinerary is required for all trips at least one week prior to departure. Prices are subject to change based on the final itinerary. The Chartering Party is responsible for reserving a room(s) for the driver(s). The group is responsible for all parking, ferry, and entrance fees incurred on the trip. DACOS is not responsible for any luggage or personal items left either inside the motorcoach or underneath the luggage bays.

Driver hours:

Itineraries are subject to review by a safety officer of the Company. Minister of Transportation safety regulations prohibit drivers to be on duty more than fifteen (15) hours per day, ten (10) of which are for driving (including a 30-minute pre- and post-trip vehicle inspection). The driver must be given nine (9) consecutive hours off before he/she may resume his/her duties.

Damages to buses:

The cost of repairing damage to buses resulting from the conduct and actions of passengers on that specific charter shall be charged to the Chartering Party and is payable as soon as such cost is determined.

Arrival time:

Operators are carefully selected and have instructions to drive at all times at a speed within the limits prescribed by law and compatible with safe operation. Unusual road, traffic and weather conditions are beyond Company control.


Equipment furnished by the Company is thoroughly inspected before being assigned to the charter service to insure uninterrupted service. If for some reason beyond the control of the Company, a mechanical failure makes necessary the replacement of a bus originally assigned to the charter service, the replacement bus may be of a different type. Audio/Video Equipment is installed on all of our over the road motorcoaches. Only non-copyrighted video cassettes are permitted to be shown. We are not liable for providing the video nor are we liable for the content shown on the videos. We also reserve the right to sub-contract if it is necessary.

Conduct of passengers:

The Company reserves the right to refuse to transport persons under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs, or who are, or are likely to become, objectionable to other persons. Passengers shall not interfere with the operator in the discharge of his duty or tamper with any apparatus or appliance on the bus.

Damage deposit:

A $500.00 deposit (per bus) will be required if DACOS feels it is necessary for the trip you are taking. The deposit will be refunded if the bus is returned undamaged and with no excessive cleaning.

Prices subject to change:

All prices quoted in the confirmation are subject to change under the circumstances described herein, but shall not be increased, in the aggregate, by more than twenty percent (20%). (a) DACOS reserves the right to impose a fuel surcharge based upon an increase in fuel prices between the time the trip is quoted and the actual service date. This surcharge would be based solely on the increased cost of fuel, and would be calculated on the difference in price per liter and the total number of kilometers required for the trip itinerary.
