Terms & Conditions
§ 1 Scope of our Service
Through the website stopovertips.com provide an online platform through which touristic services (for example excursions, transfers, tickets for events and others, collectively the "services") can be booked by visitors (“customer (s)”) of the website. By making a reservation through stopovertrips.com, the customer enters into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with stopovertrips.com. The booked services are not performed by stopovertrips.com itself, but are only third-party services that are solely intermediated through stopovertrips.com. Solely the supplier is responsible for the performance of the services offered. stopovertrips.com has no influence on the contextual presentation or the performance of service offered by the supplier. Therefore, a claim against the performance of services booked only exists towards the third party supplier; not towards stopovertrips.com.
The supplier can link the performance of his service to specific conditions (e.g. height, weight, health, etc.). These conditions are listed and defined in the Special Conditions and in the descriptions of the tours (in the column “Good to know”). In individual cases, this can mean that a service is not available for every potential customer.
Although stopovertrips.com will use reasonable skill and care in performing offered services stopovertrips.com cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can stopovertrips.com be held responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our website or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Obvious errors and mistakes (including misprints) are not binding.
stopovertrips.com will NOT deal or provide any services or products to any of OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) sanctions countries in accordance with the law of UAE.
§ 2 Booking process
The individual services, which are listed on the website, do not represent a binding offer. The customer chooses one of the services, chooses day and time for the service, clicks on „book“-button, enters his contact details and clicks on the button „confirm booking“. With this, he makes a binding offer to stopovertrips.com.
If the selected service is available on the selected day, stopovertrips.com confirms the conclusion of the contract to the customer immediately. The acceptance of the offer by stopovertrips.com takes place under the condition that the given contact details of the customer are correct and complete and that the service booked is paid before prior to implementation. Thus, a binding contract between the customer and stopovertrips.com is concluded.
In some cases, the availability of services needs to be checked first and thus the service booked must be reconfirmed by stopovertrips.com. The contract comes into effect only when the reservation is reconfirmed by stopovertrips.com. Following the conclusion of the contract stopovertrips.com sends a booking confirmation to the customer. The obligation of the customer is to check this confirmation carefully and in case of any discrepancy to get immediately in contact (email to: email@example.com ) with stopovertrips.com.
§ 3 Payment process & rates
Payment will be made during the booking process. The customer can choose from several payment options such as credit card, PayPal or bank transfer. The customer chooses one of the payment options and carries out the payment. Only with the credit advice of the complete payment the condition mentioned in §2 is fulfilled to conclude the contract.
If the selected service starts before the credit advice arrived at stopovertrips.com the condition mentioned in §2 is not fulfilled and the customer has no right to the service booked.
The payments made via credit card are managed by Stopover Solutions FZC. In case of a cancelation Stopover Solutions FZC grants the customer a credit advice.
Starting from 1.01.2018 the UAE has introduced 5% VAT. The VAT will be added to the rates at the end of your booking.
