In those situations in which a supplier defaults prior to providing services you may pursue any recourse against the supplier for refund, which may be permitted by law or statute. Fare Buzz warrants that it provides the highest standards of service in the trade and will use appropriate care in selecting suppliers so as to protect you from such default.
