Information about you and your visits to our site
Transactions concluded through our site
We operate our site and act as an interface between the Customer and the Suppliers with respect to offering and supplying all Services.
The Customer’s contract is with the respective Supplier and we are not responsible for the quality, delivery or operation of the Services.
The Customer must be at least 18 years old, be legally authorised to enter into contractual obligations, have the requisite consent or authority to act for and on behalf of any persons included in the transaction and must use our site in accordance with these Terms.
The purpose of these Terms is to provide details of the terms and conditions of the Services provided by the Suppliers for the Customer’s information. These details are not exhaustive and do not replace the Supplier’s terms and conditions. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between these Terms and the Supplier’s terms and conditions, the Supplier’s terms and conditions will prevail. Except in the case of regulatory requirements to the contrary, these details do not give rise to any obligation or liability on our part.
If the Customer does not present themself at the relevant place at the relevant time to make use of the Services in question, no refund will be due to the Customer.
It is possible that, from time to time, for technical reasons, for reasons of force majeure or because of the actions of a third party, the Services originally booked is replaced by similar Services (including but not limited to, a different berth than the one originally booked).
It is possible that, from time to time particular Services offered by the Suppliers that are shown in the description of the booking on our site are cancelled, for example as a result of weather conditions or force majeure.
The local authorities in certain countries may impose additional taxes (tourist tax, etc) which have to be paid locally. The Customer is exclusively responsible for paying such additional taxes.
The price of the Services will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect bookings already accepted. Despite our best efforts, some of the Services listed on our site may be incorrectly priced and we are under no obligation to provide Services to a Customer at an incorrect (lower) price, even after such Customer has been sent confirmation of their booking.
The prices on our website do not include insurance. You are therefore advised to take out insurance that provides cover for certain special risks such as the cost of repatriation in the event of an accident or illness.
The Customer accepts that since we act as an interface between the Customer and the Supplier, we will under no circumstances be held liable with respect to Services the Customer has booked with one or more Suppliers. The price for Services booked on our site must be paid direct to us, who accepts such payments on behalf of the Supplier via a secure payment system, provided by a third party. The booking is valid only after payment for the booked Services have been made.
Booking confirmation, changes and cancellations
Cancellations or changes of Services must ultimately be made in accordance with the respective Supplier’s terms and conditions.
A booking or order confirmation will be sent to the Customer by email. If the Customer does not receive a confirmation by email within 24 hours of when the booking was made, the Customer must contact customer services (see below).
If a cancellation fee (as stated on our site from time to time) has been paid, changes or cancellations can be made up until 12.00 noon the day before arrival.
Cancellation can, for bookings made after 25 june 2016, be made via the Guests profile. For all other bookings or a request for a change must be sent to email@example.com marked Cancellation/Change’. If a repayment is made to a Customer, we will transfer the total paid marina fee minus any cancellation fee and/or booking fee to the Customer account used for the payment via the secure payment system.
