Cancellation of Tickets and Liability
Tickets which have already been paid cannot be cancelled. Reference is explicitly made to the fact that the sale of tickets is a leisure service and therefore is excluded from the statutory right of withdrawal according to Section 18 Para.1 (10) and FAAG (Austrian Act on Off-Premises and Distance Contracts) and Section 3 Para.3 (4) KSchG (Consumer Protection Act). In the event that the seller acts only as an intermediary, the seller shall not be liable for the reimbursement of the entrance fees should the event be cancelled. In such cases, however, the seller will endeavour to obtain a reimbursement of the entrance fees from the organizer.
Changes of programme, cast or venue:
Changes of cast, programme and venue changes are subject to change and do not entitle to return the ticket(s).
Suspension of boat cruises
The operator reserves the right to suspend the boat cruise or not to perform the Amphibious Splash Tour or to perform it only on land in the event of high or low water or other adverse conditions such as storm, technical problems, etc. In the event of the Amphibious Splash Tour on water being unavailable, the trip on land will be extended. In such cases, there is no entitlement to a full refund or partial refund of the prepaid ticket price. If the boat cruise cannot take place, the full prepaid ticket price will be refunded. In the event of booking Tour III, the non-scheduled boat cruise will be replaced by a tour in a London double-decker bus. A price reduction or a cancellation shall not be possible in this case. All and any further claims are excluded.
Cancellation of hotel reservations
Hotel reservations can only be cancelled in writing. In the event that contrary to expectations the booked and confirmed hotel shall not have a room available, we will provide you with an alternative hotel in the same hotel category. No further claims can be asserted beyond that.
Up to 10 weeks before arrival: No cancellation fees.
Until one month before arrival: 60% of the agreed total booking price.
