Q: I paid for a journey on credit card and at a later date I got further charges. Why?
A: When you make a booking via credit card we take the payment based on the journey price quoted at the time. If for any reason there were any amendments to the original journey, such as waiting time or an extra drop off, these are charged separately and therefore will come up as a separate payment on your card statement.
