7.1 Duties of the customer

The customer is aware that in those cases where #allaboutmtb is only acting as an agent, the customer enters into the contract with the third party (airline, tour operator etc) and their terms and conditions apply. For services provided by other tour operators or service providers, #allaboutmtb only acts as an intermediary and not as a contractual partner; their own contractual and travel conditions apply. The customer must immediately notify #allaboutmtb and the service provider of any defects in writing.

If the customer is unable to travel or use a service for reasons not attributable to #allaboutmtb, the customer must inform #allaboutmtb immediately in writing, stating the reason. In such cases, cancellation costs will be incurred. The date of receipt of the letter by #allaboutmtb is decisive for the calculation of the cancellation costs. In addition, the cancellation costs of the respective organizer and the booked transport company apply.

If the customer is prevented from taking part in the package tour, he/she may assign the booking to a person who fulfils all the conditions attached to the participation, provided that he/she informs #allaboutmtb beforehand within a reasonable period before the departure date. This person and the client are jointly and severally liable to #allaboutmtb for the payment of the price and for any additional costs incurred as a result of this assignment.


7.2 Price increases

Price increases are generally possible. The price increase is calculated according to the same criteria as the calculation of the basic price. However, they must be made at least 3 (three) weeks before the date of departure. The price increase must be based on one of the following reasons: an increase in transport costs, including fuel costs, an increase in charges for certain services, such as landing fees, entry or

disembarkation fees at ports and corresponding fees at airports or change in the exchange rates applicable to the package.

If the price increase is more than 10%, it is a substantial change to the contract. The customer has the right to accept the change or to withdraw from the contract. He must notify #allaboutmtb of his decision as soon as possible, but definitely before the start of the trip. If the customer wishes to withdraw from the contract, he/she is entitled to participate in another package of equal or higher value, if #allaboutmtb or one of its business partners can offer him/her such a package, or to participate in another package of lower value, and to a refund of the difference in price or to a refund of all sums paid by him/her as soon as possible.
