The Parties agree as follows:
1. Scope of Service

1.2 Reservation created through the Online Reservation System will constitute a direct contract between you and the Service Provider in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in the Reservation, including but not limited to fees, costs, charges and taxes, and any cancellation or no-show charges (the “Service Provider Terms”). You are solely responsible for reading and understanding the Service Provider Terms prior to making a Reservation.

1.4 Information displayed on the Site is based on information provided to Innfins by the Service Provider (the “Service Provider Information”). The Service Provider represents that the Service Provider Information is accurate, up to date, and not in any way misleading. Innfins does not guarantee that the information is reliable, accurate, complete, or free from errors.

1.7 Innfins will ask customers to comment on all aspects of the Services, and may post such reviews on the Site.
2.1 Unless otherwise indicated in the Service Provider Terms, all rates and prices listed through the Online Reservation System include the cost of the base service, excluding surcharges, taxes and levies. Mandatory surcharges, taxes and levies, if applicable, are indicated through the Online Reservation System and in particular during the checkout process.
2.2 Innfins has an agreement with the Service Providers to get the best price available, so you will get the lowest price possible at the time of booking, guaranteed.
2.3 If you find another website and/or agent providing lower rates, contact Innfins directly and Innfins will match or even beat the price. You will need to contact Innfins before the departure date of your reservation.
2.4 You should be able to provide Innfins all details of the other deals including a link to the website where it can be found. The deal should be for a same product (same boat, same dates, same cabins, same booking conditions, same included and excluded extras, etc.). If any aspect of the deal is different, the deal will not match and Innfins will not be able to modify the reservation that has been made.
2.5 If the deal you found through another website and/or agent provides special membership rates, loyalty programs or if website and/or agent doesn’t display rates before you have requested them, Innfins’ best price guarantee doesn’t apply. In any case Innfins will do our best to make you an offer you cannot refuse.
Services displayed on Innfins’ Site are available for booking and subject to confirmation within 48 hours upon completing the reservation through the Online Reservation System, and:
for Services quantified in days, Service Provider agrees to provide such Services in strict accordance with the dates specified in the reservation.
for Services expressed in units other than days, Service Provider reserves the right to confirm availability on specific dates within the date range upon receiving the booking request. In the event that the Service Provider has limited availability during the date range specified in the booking, the Service Provider agrees to notify you immediately about the availability on specific dates within the date range so that you may plan accordingly or make alternative arrangements.
Once a user makes a reservation using the Online Reservation System, Innfins will verify the Services with the Service Provider. After the verification Innfins will send payment e-mail to the User. All fees, costs, charges, taxes with respect to Services indicated in the payment e-mail are payable to Innfins via the payment method indicated in the payment e-mail. Once full payment has been received, Innfins will issue a booking confirmation.
5. Cancellation and Amendments
5.1 Different cancellation policies may apply to each reservation and for each reservation the User needs to agree with the specific booking conditions provided by the Service Provider.
5.2 No show for or early departure from a trip is considered to be the same as a cancellation after departure and no refund applies.
5.3 In case of a reservation amendment request Innfins will do our best to help you find a suitable alternative trip depending on availability of the Service Provider.
5.4 In case of amendment or cancellation with a (partial) refund Innfins reserves the right to charge you an administration fee to cover bank transfer and/or handling costs incurred, in addition to the cancellation policy as described under 5.1. This fee is calculated on the total amount of the reservation.
5.5 Due to trip cancellations, shortened trips, delayed or re-scheduled trips, you may be eligible for a refund. In such instances, the terms and conditions are solely those offered by that Service Provider and Innfins in no way accept responsibility, however Innfins will do our best to negotiate on the user’s behalf should it become necessary.
5.6 Cancellations always need to be submitted in writing by email to avoid misunderstanding.
6. Special Circumstances
