Home James COVID-19 Policy
As a result of the May 25, 2021 Grand County Public Health Order, masks will no longer be required for fully vaccinated people on Home James vehicles.
Denver International Airport still requires masks, so masks need to be worn while on airport property (even outside).
Individuals who have not been vaccinated will still be required to wear masks on board Home James vehicles.
If a non-vaccinated passenger removes their mask or wears it improperly, the driver has been instructed to drop that passenger off at the next gas station. No refund would be provided to the passenger.
Drivers will disinfect vehicles between each trip.
Terms and Conditions
For a departure leg to DIA:
All passengers must call the Home James office at 970-726-5060 or 833-2RIDE-WP the day before your departure to reconfirm your pickup time and location.
Each passenger is limited to 1 large bag, 1 carry-on sized bag, plus a ski or snowboard bag or another large bag. Carry-on luggage may be required to fit underneath your seat. Excess luggage is subject to a surcharge of $78 (the price of an additional one-way seat). Oversized luggage (any single dimension greater than 5 ft.), oversized ski or snowboard bags, and bike boxes are subject to paying an additional $78.
An ADA-compliant collapsible scooter or collapsible wheelchair are no extra charge. Due to insurance reasons drivers are not allowed to help passengers move in or out of the van. Please call the office if you are travelling with these items so that we can plan for the space required.
Weather and Traffic Delays:
As much as we’d like to, Home James is unable to control the weather or traffic. Home James is not responsible for missed flights due to these issues. If you feel that more time may be needed, it is your responsibility to call and change your pickup to an earlier time. The office staff will do their best to accommodate based on current availability.
We love pets, but they are not permitted on scheduled shuttles unless they are certified service animals. Paperwork must be emailed to email@example.com prior to travel. Non-certified animals can always be accommodated on private charters. Further questions may be answered in this article by the ADA National Network entitled "Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals." To reiterate, we are happy to accommodate service animals, but due to the allergy restrictions and comfort of other passengers we do not allow emotional support animals.
Home James does not provide child car seats. While car seats are not required by law within commercial vehicles, Home James strongly encourages guardians to travel with their child’s car seats. The drivers are not allowed to help install car seats; it will have to be done by the child’s guardian.
Private Charter Stops:
Private charters are allowed one stop for up to 30 minutes. Should the group require more time, the driver or Home James office staff will need to collect $85/hour beyond the first 30 minutes.
We have a 48-hour cancellation policy for all reservations that have not purchased trip insurance. All reservations are non-refundable if cancelled within 48 hours of your scheduled pickup time, unless you purchased trip insurance. See Trip Insurance in the Home James Policies for details about cancellation with trip insurance. If you made this reservation using a credit card, it will be charged 2 days prior to your pickup time. If you book your trip inside of 48 hours, your trip is non-refundable.
If you purchase trip insurance for the shared shuttle service, you can cancel your reservation up to 30 minutes before your scheduled pickup time for a full refund, less the cost of the trip insurance itself. If you purchase trip insurance for the private charter service, you can cancel your reservation up to 3 hours before your scheduled pickup time for a full refund, less the cost of the trip insurance itself. Passengers that travel with Home James (board the shuttle and use the service for any length of the trip) but are delayed due to traffic, weather, and road closures are not entitled to a refund. Passengers that do not notify Home James of their cancellation will be charged the full amount. Trip insurance is not available as an option to anyone booking a reservation that is within 48 hours of the reservation's pickup time.
Changing your Pickup Time:
Home James Transportation reserves the right to move any departure reservation to an earlier time. Home James Transportation also reserves the right to move any arrival reservation to a later time. This can be done at any time for any reason.
Call us with any corrections:
If you feel that there are any errors in the above reservation(s), please contact our reservation center immediately at 970-726-5060.
