Information about you and your visits to our site
Transactions concluded through our site
We operate our site and act as an interface between the Customer and the Suppliers with respect to offering and supplying all Services.
The Customer’s contract is with the respective Supplier and we are not responsible for the quality, delivery or operation of the Services.
The Customer must be at least 18 years old, be legally authorised to enter into contractual obligations, have the requisite consent or authority to act for and on behalf of any persons included in the transaction and must use our site in accordance with these Terms.
The purpose of these Terms is to provide details of the terms and conditions of the Services provided by the Suppliers for the Customer’s information. Theses details are not exhaustive and do not replace the Supplier’s terms and conditions. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between these Terms and the Supplier’s terms and conditions, the Supplier’s terms and conditions will prevail. Except in the case of regulatory requirements to the contrary, these details do not give rise to any obligation or liability on our part.
If the Customer does not present himself/herself at the relevant place at the relevant time to make use of the Services in question, no refund will be due to the Customer.
It is possible that, from time to time, for technical reasons, for reasons of force majeure or because of the actions of a third party, the Services originally booked is replaced by similar Services (including but not limited to, a different berth than the one originally booked).
It is possible that, from time to time particular Services offered by the Suppliers that are shown in the description of the booking on our site are cancelled, for example as a result of weather conditions or force majeure.
The local authorities in certain countries may impose additional taxes (tourist tax, etc.) which have to be paid locally. The Customer is exclusively responsible for paying such additional taxes.
The price of the Services will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect bookings already accepted. Despite our best efforts, some of the Services listed on our site may be incorrectly priced and we are under no obligation to provide Services to a Customer at an incorrect (lower) price, even after such Customer has been sent confirmation of his/her booking.
The prices on our website do not include insurance. You are therefore advised to take out insurance that covers the consequences of certain cases of cancellation and an additional policy that provides cover for certain special risks such as the cost of repatriation in the event of an accident or illness.
The Customer accepts that since we act as an interface between the Customer and the Supplier, we will under no circumstances be held liable with respect to Services the Customer has booked with one or more Suppliers.
Unless otherwise stated, prices on our site are given in Swedish Kronor, SEK. The price for Services booked on our site must be paid direct to us, who accepts such payments on behalf of the Supplier via a secure payment system, provided by a third party. The booking is valid only after payment for the booked Services have been made.
Booking confirmation, changes and cancellations
Cancellations or changes of Services must ultimately be made in accordance with the respective Supplier’s terms and conditions.
A booking or order confirmation will be sent to the Customer by e-mail. If the Customer does not receive a confirmation by e-mail within 24 hours of when the booking was made, the Customer must contact customer services (see below). Cancellation or a request for a change must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org marked ‘Cancellation/Change’.
Changes or cancellation must be made 1 days or more before arrival to be valid. Therefore no change or cancellation can be validated less than 1 days before arrival.
If a repayment is made to a Customer, the amounts previously paid, minus an administration charge for the administrative work and time spent in connection with the maintenance and operation of our site, will be transferred to the account used for the payment via the secure payment system.

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks.
