In the event of the client suffering harm or damages or the tour not corresponding with the contracted agreement, the client shall be both entitled and obliged to inform the service provider immediately and request redress. The service provider shall be obliged to provide assistance within a reasonable time. Should such assistance prove impossible or inadequate, the client shall be required to obtain from the service provider in question written confirmation of the harm or damage suffered and the lack or inadequacy of the assistance provided. The service provider in question shall be obliged to furnish such confirmation, but shall not be authorized to approve any such demands for damage or compensation.
GRAND EUROPE TOURS shall reimburse the client for the value of contracted but not provided or poorly provided services or for any additional expenditure incurred, only if it was not possible for the service provider to supply a comparable substitute service on the spot.
In the event of international agreements restricting liability for inadequate or non-fulfillment of contracts, GRAND EUROPE TOURS reserves the right to apply the conditions of such agreements. Such international agreements exist predominantly in the field of transportation.
GRAND EUROPE TOURS shall not be liable to the client if non-fulfillment of the contract can be traced to the following causes:
- a) negligence on the part of the client before or during the tour
- b) unforeseeable or unavoidable negligence by any third party who is not a party to the contracted provision of services.
- c) acts of God or any occurrence which, despite care and attention, could not have been foreseen or avoided by GRAND EUROPE TOURS, the intermediary or service provider. In such cases, GRAND EUROPE TOURS shall not be liable for payment of any compensation or damages whatsoever.
Personal injury, accidents, illness in the event of personal harm, death, physical injury or illness arising from incorrect or non-fulfillment of contract by GRAND EUROPE TOURS, the company shall assume liability only if such harm, death, physical injury or illness was occasioned by GRAND EUROPE TOURS or service providers. Any such liability shall be subject to international agreements.
Loss or damage of property
In the event of loss or damage of property arising from incorrect or non-fulfillment of contract by GRAND EUROPE TOURS, the liability of GRAND EUROPE TOURS shall be restricted to a maximum sum equal to twice the tour price, unless such damage or loss was caused intentionally or due to negligence by the client or tour participants. Amounts of any such liability shall be subject to lower limits specified by international agreements.
The liability of travel, transport and airline companies is limited. GRAND EUROPE TOURS therefore recommends the client to arrange for appropriate supplementary insurance cover (for example luggage, cancellations, accidents, illness, and possible repatriation costs). The all-inclusive prices quoted by GRAND EUROPE TOURS include no insurance cover.
