3.1.1 The Customer is informed that the subscription of an insurance contract covering the consequences of certain cases of cancellation of the Services or of an assistance contract covering certain specific risks, in particular the costs of repatriation in the event of accident or illness remains optional and is not included in the Service offered by the EDVB. The Customer may, if he wishes, subscribe to such a contract with any insurer.
3.1.2 No cancellation of the Service by the Customer after the EDVB sends the confirmation email may give rise to a refund of the price paid by the Customer.
Similarly, any Service interrupted, shortened or not consumed by the Customer will not give rise to any reimbursement from the EDVB.
3.1.3 In the event of no-show at the start of the Service, the EDVB can only maintain the other Services if the Customer provides the EDVB, within 24 hours of the start of the service initially planned, with a written document to make the formal request. No reimbursement can be granted following Services not consumed due to the non-presentation of the Customer at the time of departure initially planned (hotel nights, meals, etc.). If a late arrival should generate additional costs for the EDVB, such as for example the organization of a new transfer, these costs shall remain the responsibility of the Customer. The EDVB would then make its best efforts to guarantee the other services.
3.1.4 If the cancellation of the stay of one of the registered persons results, where applicable, in the reservation of a single room, instead of a double room, the supplement must be paid prior to departure.
3.2 Assignment of contract
In accordance with the aforementioned article R211-7, the Customer may assign his contract to a third party, provided that he informs the EDVB in writing no later than 7 days before the start of the service, indicating precisely the names and address of the transferee(s) and of the participant(s) in the stay or training and by justifying that they meet the same conditions as him to perform the service.
The transferor and the transferee shall be jointly and severally liable for the payment of any balance of the price as well as any additional costs incurred by this transfer. In any case, if the costs are higher than the aforementioned amounts, the EDVB would be owed the exact amount, which will be invoiced to the Customer upon presentation of supporting documents.
If, due to a hazard beyond the control of the EDVB, the latter were forced to cancel or modify the Service, the following rules would apply:
In the event that the Service is significantly modified in its content by the EDVB, the Customer may terminate his reservation by obtaining the return of all sums paid, to the exclusion of any other sum.
However, he may also have the possibility of subscribing to a new offer proposed by the EDVB. On the other hand, if he decides to participate in the modified service, he irrevocably waives any claim against the EDVB concerning the modifications made to the service.
A service is “guaranteed” when it is not subject to a minimum number of participants.
In the event of cancellation of the Service by the EDVB, the Customer shall be fully reimbursed. The Customer may not claim any compensation if the cancellation of the stay:
– is imposed by force majeure events,
– takes place due to an insufficient number of participants less than 15 days before departure.
5.1. VAT, when applicable, is always included in the price. However, when the VAT system on the margin of Travel Agents applies, EDVB invoices may not mention the VAT collected on the Services sold.
5.2. The terms of payment for each Service are specified in the sales contract submitted to the Customer and accepted by the latter.
5.3. In accordance with article 19 of the Act dated July 13, 1992, the EDVB reserves the right to modify its prices both upwards and downwards to take into account significant variations between the day of confirmation/registration and that of the start of the service: a) In the cost of transport, linked in particular to the cost of fuel b) Fees and taxes relating to the services included in the stays or tours. The revision would take place by passing on only the additional cost that the EDVB would have to bear. A price revision cannot take place less than 30 days before departure. Pursuant to this article, variations in the cost of transport will be passed on in proportion to their share in the calculation of the amount of the price of the reserved service. In the event of an increase of more than 10% of the total price of the service including VAT, the Customer may cancel his order free of charge, provided that he notifies his cancellation by registered mail with acknowledgment of receipt to the EDVB as soon as possible. Otherwise, cancellation fees, such as provided for in article 3.1, will be invoiced to the Customer.
For any information or question relating to his Order, the Customer may send an email to the following email address: email@example.com.
