Terms and Conditions, Paris trips, 2006

General conditions
The person booking the trip is responsible for reading the general conditions and all other information carefully. They are also obliged to make all members aware of these conditions.
The agreement is official for the traveller(s) when you have signed the registration form and sent it to us and we have received full payment. We require the agreement by letter or fax signed by all applicants.


Length, program, and modifications of the trip
The tours are based on the information available to us just before publishing. It could be necessary to change the program in case of unforeseen circumstances such as weather conditions, changed timetables, natural disasters, political conflicts and cancelled skating events

It is not possible to cancel or replace a trip when the nightskate has been called off or the character thereof has changed for reasons other than the normal cancellation conditions.

The tour manager reserves the right to change the original route, the skate program, the daily agenda, hotel arrangements and transport. You will hear from us immediately if the date of departure changes. If we have to cancel the tour due to unforeseen circumstances, we will do everything within our power to offer you a comparable tour.


Insurance

It is obligatory that you take out travel accident insurance. We advise you to take out cancellation insurance as well.


Skating skills

For Paris you must be an advanced skater having a very good degree of braking ability. Speak to an instrtuctor before going about the general skating requirements. If you are not able to meet the minimum skating requirements for your own safety and the safety of the other skaters, we can refuse you the right to participate.


Skating protection
It is your sole personal responsibility to wear the right protective gear. We strongly discourage skating without protective gear and strongly encourage wearing a helmet, wrist guards, elbow and knee protection. Every year accidents occur because skaters are not wearing the right protective gear.


Skate at your own risk
Attention: You skate at your own risk. You are solely responsible for wearing the right protection and for the condition of your equipment. We do not accept any responsibility for damage no matter what kind of damage resulting from skating accidents. Our liability for damage resulting from death or injury is limited or excluded by the valid international pacts. We do not accept either liability for damage with claim for compensation which rest on an insurance or government benefit.


Modifications

It is possible to send another person in your place. Contact us as soon as possible so that we know who the other person is. Modification fee: £25 per modification. If more than one modification is made at one time, the price remains the same.*
*A cancellation is not a modification. Please see below for rules of cancellation.


Cancellation by Citiskate

If there are not enough participants, we cancel the tour. In this case, we inform you four weeks before departure and we immediately refund the money you have paid.


Cancellation by you

We charge the following cancellation fees if you decide to cancel:
Cancellation 56 days before departure: 25% of the trip cost amount per person (minimum £30,00)
Cancellation from 56 (inclusive) to 28 days before departure: 50 % of the trip cost amount
Cancellation from 28 (inclusive) to seven days of departure: 75% of the trip cost amount
Cancellation from 7 (inclusive) to the day of departure. 100% of the travel amount.

You are required to submit your cancellation by letter or e-mail. You can decrease your risk under certain circumstances (illness, etc.) by taking out cancellation insurance.


The weather

You can inline skate only when the road is dry. When the weather is bad, we may cancel a part of the tour. The good news is that we never cancel the whole tour because there are more than a thousand and one nice activities along the route. The costs of using public transport or of driving your own car during the trip are your own.


Accommodation

If our hotels are not available, we reserve the right to offer you comparable accommodations.
