By using the SU Taxi SOS service with Roman Cabs I agree that:-
- I will only use the SOS cab service when I am without planned funds to make my journey home (e.g. wallet/purse is lost or has been stolen) or I am in a vulnerable state e.g. intoxicated, at threat, I feel there is a risk to my safety and/or require support services.
- I will only use the SOS cab service for a journey (capped at £10) back to my home address (either residential or university accommodation).
- I will only be able to use this service with Roman Cars (RC) of Colchester – the cab can be ordered through the online app or by calling Roman Cars directly.
- I will only be able to use the SOS cab service on presentation of my Registration card and PRID number to the driver.
- I will abide by Roman Cars terms and conditions and understand that I will be liable for any additional fees in line with these terms and conditions (e.g. if the student is sick in the cab, a cleaning charge will need to be paid by the student).
- I will sign a docket showing the fare, the acceptance of liability for the cost (including a £1.50 administration fee) and the terms applicable
- I will settle the fee due within 7 days at the SU Reception. I understand that should I fail to repay within 7 days I will be sent a reminder email. If the fee remains unpaid, my details (Name, PRID and amount owed) will be passed to the University Income and Finance team and will be registered as a University debt. This may prevent a student being able to re-register/attend a graduation ceremony until the debt is repaid. I will also not be allowed to use the SOS service again until the debt is repaid.
- I will only be able to use the SOS cab service a maximum of 5 times in any 12 month period. Your SU reception will track activity and take positive action to support those students have used the service over the allowed amount.
