4.1 A Booking is only valid for the Coach stated within the Booking details and for the Booked Departure.
4.2 Eurotunnel shall be entitled to treat any coach driver quoting a Booking Reference Number relating to any Booking made by the Customer under this Agreement as acting as an authorised agent of that Customer. The Customer agrees to be bound by any act or decisions made by the coach driver in relation to that Booking or in relation to any new Booking made by the coach driver.
4.3 Coaches which arrive early may (subject to availability) be able to travel on an earlier departure. As Published Fares and Contract Fares may differ according to the date and time of travel, an additional sum may be payable by the Customer, which will be the difference between the price originally paid and the price applicable to any new departure.
4.4 Coaches which arrive late (i.e. less than 45 minutes before the Booked Departure) will no longer be able to travel on the Booked Departure as the Booking will no longer be valid. In these circumstances, if the coach driver wishes to travel, a new Booking will have to be made at the relevant fare.
4.5 Eurotunnel reserves the right to inspect and search any Coach and examine, remove or repack or otherwise handle the contents of any part thereof if directed or requested to do so by HM Revenue & Customs or any other civil or military authority or if Eurotunnel, in its reasonable opinion and its sole discretion, considers it desirable to do so. Eurotunnel shall not be liable for any costs, loss, damage or non-delivery or delay arising out or otherwise in connection with such action, unless caused by the fault or negligence of Eurotunnel.
4.6 Eurotunnel reserves the right to request details of Passengers and upon receipt of that information may, at its entire discretion, refuse carriage on the Shuttle of such Passengers or any coach carrying such Passengers.
4.7 Customers shall inform Eurotunnel at the time of making their Booking of the likely presence of domestic pets on board the Coach. The carriage of pets is covered by the relevant clause(s) in the Conditions of Carriage. Declaring the presence of pets is mandatory and the responsibility for doing so rests with the Customer. Dogs, cats, and ferrets are required to be subject to controls prior to embarking for the United Kingdom. These controls are carried out by Eurotunnel and the supplement payable in respect of each animal shall be paid by the Customer at the time of making their Booking. There is no supplement payable in respect of guide dogs for blind persons or for assistance dogs accompanying their owner, subject to the production of documentation attesting to the dogs' status. The controls take place prior to check-in and Customers should allow sufficient extra time. Eurotunnel recommends that Customers contact DEFRA (www.defra.gov.uk) for all relevant information.
4.8 Eurotunnel shall not be liable in the event of delays to crossings arising from Customers' failure to comply with clause 4.7 above, nor shall it be liable for any other consequence of Customers' failures to comply with the Pets Scheme (as set out in the Conditions of Carriage).
4.9 Failure to comply with the requirements of clause 4.7 may result in the refusal of carriage to the Customer and the Passengers, in which case the Contract Fare shall not be refunded.
4.10 Eurotunnel reserves the right to refuse carriage on the Shuttle and/or terminate the account of the Credit Account Holder upon which travel is made if:
4.10.1 a Coach uses the lanes reserved for FlexiPlus passengers unless directed to do so by an authorised member of Eurotunnel staff; or
4.10.2 a Coach driver sets down Passengers anywhere on Eurotunnel premises, in particular at the service station on the UK terminal, without the authorisation of Eurotunnel.
