Object of these Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions (the “General Conditions”) set out the terms under which UK motorists (the "Subscriber" or "you") may subscribe to the Vía-T electronic toll collection service in Spain and Portugal (the "Service" or "Vía-T Service") owned by Bip&Drive, S.A. and use the Vía-T on-board unit tag ("Tag") provided as part of the subscription to the Vía-T Service. The Tag allows users of certain vehicle types to use certain lanes of the motorway and parking facilities branded with the "Vía-T' or 'T' or the 'Via Verde' sign within the Vía-T Network. Subscription for the Vía-T Service is conditional on us receiving and accepting your Application in accordance with these General Conditions.

Application Vetting – YOUR ATTENTION IS IN PARTICULAR DRAWN TO THE PROVISIONS OF THIS CLAUSE 3
Subscribers who submit an Application for use of the Vía-T Service acknowledge that Emovis will process (or any other third party instructed by Bip&Drive to process applications on Bip&Drive's behalf) their application details for the purpose of Application vetting and for carrying out credit checks to assess their credit worthiness.
It is very important that you provide accurate information in your Application – we might decline your Application based on the results of your credit check, or if you have provided false information.
By making an Application, Subscribers authorise Emovis (or other credit reference agency) to verify the identity of the Subscriber and to assess their credit worthiness. As part of this verification process, Emovis (or other third party) will obtain details of any credit judgments that have been awarded against the Subscriber in the county or high Courts of the United Kingdom. These will have typically been lodged as a result of the Subscriber's credit affairs. Where Bip&Drive deems any of this information as material to the Subscriber's Application (including, but not limited to, where the Subscriber has been declared bankrupt or has credit judgments awarded against them), Bip&Drive reserves the right to decline the Subscriber's Application and/or terminate any current Subscription.
Emovis or any credit reference agency that Bip&Drive instructs may keep a record of this credit check (regardless of whether the Subscriber's Application is approved by Bip&Drive). For a short period of time this can affect your ability to get credit elsewhere. Details of how the Subscriber conducts their account may also be disclosed to such agencies.
Bip&Drive undertakes that it, Emovis and any other third party instructed by Bip&Drive to carry out application vetting on Bip&Drive's behalf, will not utilise any financial data other than the Subscriber's data when assessing that Subscriber's credit worthiness.

If you cancel after the expiry of the Cancellation Period, you will not be entitled to receive any refund of any of the Charges you have paid to us prior to cancellation except the Toll Deposit which will be refunded if the Tag has been returned to us in accordance with clause 18.
Following cancellation under this clause 6:
the Subscriber will no longer be entitled to use its Tag and will not be registered for using the Vía-T Service supplied by Bip&Drive; and
the Subscriber must return the Tag to Bip&Drive in accordance with clause 18 below.
Use of the Tag
If you receive a Tag from us in relation to your Subscription, that Tag is specifically registered to you. You cannot assign, sell, dispose of, lease the Tag to any other person or damage or tamper with the Tag or use the Tag fraudulently or illegally. You are personally responsible to Bip&Drive and liable for the use of the Tag and the Vía-T Service. You are not entitled to carry more than one active Tag per vehicle (a Tag will be active when it is no longer within the plastic anti-static bag / box supplied by Bip&Drive). The Tag can be used by the Subscriber in different vehicles but cannot be used for multiple vehicles at the same time.
The Tag allows the Subscriber to incur Toll Charges when travelling within the Vía-T Network (through its detection of the Vía-T Equipment) without the Subscriber having to stop to pay such Toll Charges at toll stations for each journey (the "Purpose"). Provided that it is used correctly in accordance with (i) these General Conditions and (ii) all instructions contained with the manual provided by Bip&Drive (if any) and on the Website, the Tag will apply Toll Charges to your Subscription for payment by you in accordance with clause 11 of these General Conditions.
You must use the Tag only for Purpose and, in the manner, permitted under these General Conditions and in compliance with all applicable laws applicable to the Vía-T Network (including, but not limited to, the motorways, toll facilities or car parks comprising the Vía-T Network).
You will be liable for the use of the tag by any other person who you lend, share or otherwise allow to use the Tag.
You shall install the Tag and properly position the Tag on the windshield as instructed in the user manual accompanying the Tag or on the Website. You shall use the Tag only as directed by the instructions accompanying the Tag or as provided by us or Emovis from time to time. Failure to comply with these instructions may lead to the Subscriber being liable for additional and/or unexpected Toll Charges.
In the absence of a valid, active and properly positioned Tag in the vehicle, the Subscriber will be required to pay any toll charges using another means of payment. Invalid Tags may be removed by toll plaza staff.
You must exercise all possible care to ensure that the Tag is not lost, stolen or misused. If the Tag is lost, stolen or is at risk of being misused, you must take all reasonable steps we consider necessary to assist us in recovering the Tag.
If Bip&Drive is unable to correctly capture information from any Tag otherwise than due to a failure of the Vía-T Equipment, Bip&Drive reserves the right to apply the toll for the most expensive journey for the relevant exit toll plaza.
It is the Subscriber's responsibility to ensure that their vehicle complies with the height, weight and vehicle class restrictions that apply to the Vía-T Network and the Vía-T Service. Details of these restrictions can be found on the FAQ section of the Website.
In order for the Tag to register the Toll Charge(s) to the Subscriber's Subscription, Subscribers must use lanes marked with the "Vía-T' or 'T' or the 'Via Verde' sign at the entrance and at the payment lane. Subscribers may use the Tag to pay exit charges in car parks that display "Vía-T' or 'T' sign. A Tag allows the Subscriber to pay the amount due at the exit by using the lane indicated by the 'Vía-T' or 'T' sign. Prior to entering any such car park, the Subscriber must ensure that their vehicle conforms to the height, weight and/or vehicle class restrictions that apply at such car park.
As a condition of the Subscription Agreement, the Subscriber agrees to comply with:
all road marking and signs on or relating to the Vía-T Network (including, but not limited to, those which restrict use to certain classes of vehicle);
all traffic lights;
all speed limits applicable to the Vía-T Network including, but without limitation, the speed limits that apply at the toll barrier;
all lights and barrier crossing; and
all safety recommendations and regulations.
The Subscriber agrees to use its best endeavours to ensure that a minimum distance of 4 metres is maintained between its vehicle and all other vehicles at the toll lane entrances and toll plazas.
Ownership of the Tag
Bip&Drive, acting reasonably, may recall any Tag(s) by request. Following notification of such withdrawal, the Subscriber shall immediately cease using any relevant Tag and return the Tags to Emovis in accordance with the clause 18. In the case of technical failure, the need to replace any Tag or in order to prevent any incident related to wear and tear, Bip&Drive, at their sole discretion, may replace the Tags without charge. If after examining the Tag Bip&Drive determines that any failure is attributable to the acts or omissions of the Subscriber, Bip&Drive reserves the right to charge the Subscriber the Tag Replacement Fee for the cost of the repair and/or replacement of the Tag.
Except where permitted under these General Conditions, the Subscriber shall not re-distribute, transmit, sublet, assign, sell, rent, lease, subrogate or otherwise transfer the Tag and/or their Subscription nor the rights and obligations arising from such to any other person, without having first obtained the prior written consent from Bip&Drive. Without prejudice to Bip&Drive's other rights and remedies, Bip&Drive reserves the right to retain any applicable Tag Deposits in the event of the Subscriber's breach of this clause 8.3.
The Subscriber shall be bound to perform all the necessary actions for the adequate protection of the Tag against the foreseeable damage and appropriation by another person (unless such appropriation is permitted under these General Conditions or Bip&Drive has given prior written consent for use by such other person in accordance with clause 8.3), and in all cases shall follow the instructions provided by Bip&Drive in connection with using and/or keeping such Tag.
If your Tag is faulty, lost, stolen or you become aware that the Tag may be or is being misused, you must immediately tell Emovis by telephone on 01423 299017 or by contacting Emovis by submitting a support request via the My Account section and if requested by Emovis, you must confirm the loss, theft or misuse in writing by post at the address Emovis gives you in its request. As your vehicle registration is / can be linked to your VIA-T tag if you sell your vehicle / registration number or it's lost / stolen or linked to a vehicle you do not accept to pay tolls for you must inform us immediately and delete the vehicle registration number held against the VIA-T tag in your 'My Account' area. Prior to you taking this action you acknowledge that you remain liable to pay for all tolls incurred.
If the Tag is faulty, Bip&Drive reserves the right to retain the Tag Deposit (in which case no refund of such Tag Deposit will be payable) where Bip&Drive reasonably considers that the fault with the Tag is attributable to your act(s) or omission(s).
If you do not tell Emovis that your Tag is lost or stolen, you will remain liable for any and all Toll Charges and fees incurred for the use of the Tag on the Vía-T and Via Verde Network. If you do not tell Emovis that a vehicle / vehicle registration number is lost, sold, stolen, transfered or for any other reason you do not accept to pay tolls incurred by said vehicle / vehicle registration number you must inform Emovis, you will remain liable for any and all Toll Charges and fees incurred via use of the tag on the Via-t and Via Verde Network.
If your Tag is lost or stolen, we will block your Tag in accordance with clause 13. We will be entitled to retain the Tag Deposit if your Tag is stolen or lost. If you want a replacement, you will be liable to pay a Tag Replacement Fee and the postage and packing fee relevant to the delivery option selected by you for that Tag.
If the Subscriber subsequently finds the Tag that was considered lost or stolen, it must be returned by registered mail (at the Subscriber's own cost) to Emovis. The Subscriber shall not use any Tag notified to Bip&Drive as lost or stolen and doing so shall entitle Bip&Drive to retain any Tag Deposits and to immediately terminate the Subscriber's Subscription Agreement.
If your Tag is confiscated for any reason, you must advise the relevant authority that you have a Subscription Agreement with Bip&Drive for the Vía-T Service and that the Tag is owned by them. You must notify Emovis as soon as possible of the incident and provide Emovis with an explanation of the reason for such confiscation (if known) and an explanation of the circumstances surrounding such confiscation. The Subscriber will provide all reasonable assistance to Bip&Drive and/or Emovis in connection with their investigation of the confiscation and/or their liaison with the relevant authority.
The Subscription Agreement is effective as soon as Bip&Drive accepts the Subscriber's Application as described above and, without prejudice to clause 17.6, shall continue until terminated by either party in accordance with clause 17 (the "Term").
Charges YOUR ATTENTION IS IN PARTICULAR DRAWN TO THE PROVISIONS OF THIS CLAUSE 10
The following fees shall be payable by the Subscriber in the first payment they make to Bip&Drive in accordance with clause 11 below:
a refundable security deposit of 20€ (no IVA is payable) for each Tag issued by Bip&Drive (the "Tag Deposit");
the annual management fee of 6€ (exclusive of IVA which shall be payable on this amount)("Annual Management Fee"); and
a non-refundable application fee of 10€ (exclusive of IVA which shall be payable on this amount); and
the Special Delivery Charge (if applicable),
(together the "Subscription Fees").
Monthly Active Service Fee
A monthly service fee of 5€ (exclusive of IVA which shall be payable on this amount) shall be payable by the Subscriber for each calendar month in which the Subscriber uses the Tag on the Vía-T Network subject to a cap of 10€ (exclusive of IVA which shall be payable on this amount) per Year per Tag (the "Monthly Active Service Fee").
Annual Management Fee
The Subscriber shall be liable to pay Bip&Drive an Annual Management Fee on each anniversary of the Subscription Activation Date for each Year of the Term.
Foreign Exchange Finance Charge
Bip&Drive shall charge a fee of 2% + IVA on the total value of the Charges payable under each invoice issued by Bip&Drive pursuant to clause 11 of these General Conditions (the "Foreign Exchange Finance Charge"). The exchange rate is based on the average mid market commercial exchange rate (not the tourist rate) for the month that the Toll Charges were incurred.
The Subscriber shall be liable to pay Bip&Drive any and all Toll Charges incurred by the Subscriber together with any additional amounts which the Subscriber is liable to pay for use of the Vía-T Network. Toll Charges for each journey can be calculated using the toll calculator tool available on the FAQ section of the Website.
Unpaid Direct Debit Charge
The subscriber must ensure a valid direct debit is maintained on their account at all times and that the annual account management fee is paid each year. Should the Subscriber not maintain a valid direct debit mandate OR does not ensure that there are sufficient funds available to settle their outstanding account balance in full then a 10€+IVA fee may be applied to cover administration costs. If the annual account management fee remains unpaid and a valid direct debit is not put in place by the subscriber within 7 days following the payment due date of the invoice the subscription is deemed to be terminated. From that point the subscriber then has 90 days to return their tag/s to receive a refund of the €20 refundable tag security deposit they initially paid, after which time the tag deposit is forfeited by the subscriber and retained by Bip&Drive.
IVA is a sales tax which is applicable in Spain and Portugal which is similar to VAT in the United Kingdom and is payable on all fees and charges under these General Conditions except the Tag Deposit. Unless Bip&Drive notifies the Subscriber otherwise, IVA shall be applied at the prevailing standard rate.

the Tag Deposit for each additional Tag ordered;
the Monthly Active Service Fee for each additional Tag for each month that the additional Tag is used on the Vía-T Network subject to a cap of 10€ (exclusive of IVA which shall be payable on this amount) per Year per Tag; and
postage and packing fees of 5€ plus IVA for each additional Tag ordered or, if you select the 'guaranteed next day delivery option', the Special Delivery Charge shall be payable for each additional tag ordered under this option,
(together the "Additional Tag Fees").
You may order an additional Tag holder by logging onto 'My Account' section of the Website and selecting the option to order an additional Tag holder. If you order additional Tag holder(s), you shall be liable to pay to Bip&Drive for the following:

Use of Automatic Number Plate Recognition System in Portugal and Notification of Sale, Loss or Theft of Vehicle or Vehicle Registration Number
26.1 Some network operators in Portugal use an ‘Automatic Number Plate Recognition’ System to record images of your vehicle and its number plate to calculate the charges due from your Account should for any reason your VIA-T tag fail to be detected as you drive under the tag detection gantry. You agree and acknowledge this and will provide a Vehicle Registration number prior to using your VIA-T tag in Portugal. Failure to provide a Vehicle Registration number before using your VIA-T tag in Portugal may result in unpaid tolls and a fine from the Portuguese network operators, you accept and acknowledge this. A Vehicle Registration number for a Portuguese hire car can not be provided as Portuguese hire cars are already registered with the network operators in Portugal and you must not use your VIA-T tag in a Portuguese hire car.
26.2 As an Automatic Number Plate Recognition System is used in some areas of Portugal to calculate the charges due, you must tell us immediately if your vehicle or vehicle registration number is sold, stolen or for any other reason you do not wish to be responsible for any tolls incurred by updating or removing the Vehicle Registration number in your 'My Account' area online or by telephone us during our office hours. If you do not tell us that your vehicle or Vehicle Registration Number has been sold or stolen charges will continue to be calculated for your Vehicle Registration Number and you will remain liable for any charges incurred by your vehicle or vehicle registration number and your Account will continue to be debited. If you have sold your vehicle, you can delete and/or register a new vehicle in your ‘My Account’ area either online in your 'My Account' area, by telephone or by writing to us using the contact details on our website.
