• For all services according to the service description, it is a prerequisite that your vehicle (PKW) is registered and roadworthy in accordance with the regulations of the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (Straßenverkehrszulassungsverordnung) for the duration of the service.

1.7.1 The presence of occupants, whether humans or animals, inside the parked vehicle is prohibited. Phoenix Parkservice is authorized to grant access to the vehicle to governmental authorities.

1.7.2 Deactivation of Dashcams:

a. Upon entering our parking premises, the customer is obligated to immediately and fully deactivate their dashcam. Similarly, in the case of valet services, our drivers will also deactivate the dashcam (if technically feasible and not already done). This is done to safeguard privacy and comply with data protection regulations.

b. Our parking premises are utilized by various parties, including other lessors and car dealers who conduct their business and may have walk-in customers. It is strictly prohibited to film or monitor individuals without their explicit written consent. Therefore, the use of recording devices on the premises is strictly prohibited.

c. The customer bears full responsibility for ensuring that their dashcam is properly deactivated upon entering our parking premises or handing over their vehicle for valet service. Any violations of these regulations may result in immediate denial of access to the parking premises or termination of our services.

d. The option of deactivating the dashcam by our drivers does not exempt the customer from their own obligation to deactivate it. Deactivation by our drivers is not guaranteed. Thus, the valet service assumes no liability for any legal consequences or breaches of data protection regulations arising from the improper use of the customer’s dashcam. 

e. By utilizing our valet service, the customer expressly agrees to adhere to these regulations, deactivate their dashcam at all times, and assume full responsibility for the consequences of using dashcams.

2.1 Booking of these services, along with all associated services, is subject to the following General Terms and Conditions (GTC) of Phoenix Parkservice.

2.2 The customer is obligated to notify us by phone 45 minutes before their arrival at Frankfurt Airport. Adhering to this timeframe is crucial; otherwise, Phoenix Parkservice’s liability for consequences is waived. If the customer contacts us only upon or shortly before their terminal arrival, terminal parking fees, as well as costs for our staff’s rapid transportation, will be incurred and borne by the customer.

2.3 The customer is obliged to adhere to the meeting point designated by our personnel for our valet service. If the customer arrives at an incorrect or non-designated meeting point, additional costs such as parking fees will be borne by the customer.

2.4 Should the customer unduly delay the driver at the terminal area due to excessive luggage, jammed seats, or other delays, the customer shall cover the parking ticket costs. The valet service disclaims responsibility for such delays attributable to the customer’s behavior or equipment.

2.5 The customer must inform us immediately by phone upon landing at Frankfurt Airport. Failure to do so eliminates any liability or refund responsibility of Phoenix Parkservice. Additionally, occasionally, our staff may need to temporarily park customer vehicles in public parking areas for preparation purposes. Through careful organization and preparation, we ensure timely availability of the vehicle and offer efficient service to the customer.

2.6 To ensure smooth operations among customers on a specific day, the valet service reserves the right to temporarily park our customers’ vehicles in public parking spaces during pickup and return. On particularly busy days, it might be necessary to make interim stops with the vehicle. Thus, the customer agrees to ensure smooth operations for all customers.

2.7 In exceptional cases and urgent circumstances, our staff undertakes to temporarily park vehicles in public parking areas to prevent theft or damage. However, Phoenix Parkservice is not liable for property damage, vandalism, or impacts caused by third parties.

  • in case of injury to life, body or health
  • in case of intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty
  • in case of warranty promises, if agreed, or if the scope of application of the product liability law is opened.

5.2 Disclaimer:

As far as Valet Service is not liable according to the mentioned points under 5.1, the liability of Phoenix Parkservice, its employees, freelancers, legal representatives and vicarious agents is limited to the amount of the damage foreseeable at the time of the conclusion of the contract, the occurrence of which must typically be expected. Otherwise, claims for damages are excluded.

 

 

5.3 Additional liability provisions:

5.3.2 Phoenix Parkservice assumes no liability for damage caused by acts of courtesy; such as jump-starting or parking assistance by its employees and/or agents.

5.3.3 Phoenix Parkservice is not liable for any light scratches, minor paint damage, stone chips or small dents on the vehicles. This type of damage may remain hidden and undetectable to the driver at the time of vehicle delivery due to dirt, suboptimal lighting conditions, or a tight time frame due to upcoming tasks at the drop-off location. We would like to point out that customers who notice damage when returning their vehicle that they did not notice beforehand bear the burden of proof. The customer must therefore prove that the damage was caused by our company, one of our employees or vicarious agents.

5.3.5 Phoenix Parkservice is not liable for valuables or objects left in the vehicle in general.

In this context, the terms and conditions of the respective car wash or reconditioning team shall apply.

5.3.7 Claims for damages arising from intentional or gross negligence shall be forfeited if they are not asserted in writing within two months of the contractually agreed return. If the customer claims damages for non-performance, the period shall be one month.

5.4 When returning the vehicle to the terminal, our staff will carry out a vehicle check together with the customer in the form of a tour. Likewise, each customer should make a vehicle check on the spot. Afterwards, the customer signs that he/she has comprehensively inspected his/her vehicle and has accepted both the visual and mechanical condition, and thus any claims for damages requested afterwards in relation to the same vehicle will be forfeited.

5.5 In case the customer demands a certain inspection from us, or falsely or intentionally complains about any damage at the vehicle, which can be proven to have existed before the vehicle was handed over to Phoenix Parkservice, we reserve the right to take legal action, and to assess an administrative fee of 99,00€ incl. VAT for the incurred expenses.

of Phoenix Parkservice as well as that of third parties. Should any damage occur, it is the Customer’s duty to notify Phoenix Parkservice immediately and take all necessary steps to minimize the damage.

5.8 Phoenix Parkservice shall not be responsible for any damage caused by the actions or omissions of the Customer or the person(s) accompanying the Customer, whether intentional or due to negligence.

5.9 As a result of the high traffic density of a busy metropolis such as Frankfurt am Main, which is known for its significant traffic congestion and congestion, delays may occur. The customer understands that delays of up to 50 minutes are reasonable and accepts these without any legal claims for performance or compensation.

6.5 However, if we receive the cancellation notification within 24 hours before the agreed time of the booked service, we reserve the right to charge or retain 100% of the costs. The customer has the right to prove that less damage has been incurred.
