3. If requested by the hirer, the driver shall assist with the loading and unloading of luggage without any extra charge.

4. Passengers should note that where an operator is registered for VAT purposes, a surcharge, calculated at the rate of Value Added Tax current at the time, may be charged in respect of each hire. The operator must display an appropriate notice to this effect within the vehicle.

Any person wishing to make representations in respect of the above proposals should do so, in writing, to the undernoted address no later than 26 February 2019.
