“Customer” means the person who purchases a cruise ticket from the Company via the online shop.
By posting an offer for the sale of cruise tickets on the website http://www.prague-venice.cz/ (hereinafter the “Website”), the Company makes an offer to enter into a contract. The moment the Customer pays the purchase price of the cruise ticket, the contract is concluded.
To purchase a cruise ticket, the Customer must fill in the appropriate form on the Website with their name, e-mail address and the number of tickets to be purchased. The latter are added to the shopping basket, where, during the purchase, the Customer may check and modify the details entered and the number of cruise tickets to be purchased. Subsequently, they confirm their order by clicking on the “OBJEDNAT/PLACE ORDER” button.
After the Customer confirms their order, they can pay the purchase price of the tickets using a payment card or a PayPal account. The moment the whole purchase price is paid to the company’s account using one the methods mentioned above, the Customer receives an email with a tax document – an invoice for the cruise ticket paid. The payment is to be made either in Czech Crowns (CZK) or Euro (EUR), in the amount specified in the Company’s current price list posted on the Website. The prices shown in the price list include VAT. No conversion from CZK to EUR and vice versa is done at the point of purchase price payment, and the Customer is thereby not entitled to a refund of the difference in purchase price if the current exchange rate of the currency in question changes.
The Customer receives the purchased cruise ticket featuring a unique code, and a payment confirmation message via email to the address provided at the time of purchase. When boarding the cruise or visiting the Charles Bridge Museum, the Customer must present a printed cruise ticket.
A cruise ticket is valid for one calendar year since the day of its purchase. Within this period the Customer may use the cruise ticket for a 45-minute cruise on a historic ferry boat including audio commentary and light refreshments, and to visit the Charles Bridge Museum. If the Customer does not use the cruise ticket within the given period, the cruise ticket is no longer valid and cannot be used. Should this be the case, the Company shall not refund the Customer the purchase price or any part thereof. If a cruise ticket is lost or damaged, it may not be replaced for a new cruise ticket.
The current departure point of the cruise on a historic ferry boat, and the current times when the historic ferry boat sets off are posted on the Company’s website http://www.prague-venice.cz/. The capacity of a historic ferry boat is 30 passengers and if it is reached, it is not possible to take more passengers on board the particular historic ferry boat at the time in question. The exact departure time of the historic ferry boat may change depending on the current weather conditions and capacity.
If the Customer wishes to take the cruise in a group of 10 people and more, they must inform the Company via email at email@example.com at least 5 days in advance, and the Company shall authorize the booking for the requested number of seats on the historic ferry boat depending on the capacity currently available.
The Company reserves the right to cancel the cruise on a historic ferry boat in case of adverse weather conditions, technical failure of the historic ferry boat, or other events beyond control. Should this be the case, the Customer has the right to take the cruise on a different date; the purchase price shall not be refunded to the Customer.
During the cruise the Customer must follow the Company’s instructions concerning the safety of persons and property. The Company accepts no responsibility for any high-value belongings the Customer brings on the cruise.
If the Customer does not receive from the Company the correct number or type of cruise tickets for which they have paid the purchase price, the Customer has the right to point out the defect in writing by sending the Company a message to the address firstname.lastname@example.org. The Company shall review the legitimacy of the Customer’s claim and shall remedy it by sending the remaining cruise tickets or cruise tickets of the correct type.
