You must use it in accordance with these conditions and it must be handed in prior to embarkation or be visible and capable of being scanned on an electronic device. All tickets remain our property and you must return it to us once you have finished using it if we so request.

1.8 If you buy a ticket with a credit or debit card to which you do not have legal right, the ticket will be invalid from the date of issue and you will be liable to pay the full fare for any journey(s) made using that ticket.

1.9 Whilst we try to ensure that all information displayed on our web-sites, particularly times and prices, is accurate it is possible that errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of a ticket you have purchased, we will try to inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of either reconfirming your purchase at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you for any reason, we reserve the right to treat the purchase as cancelled.

2.0 If you present a mispriced ticket at embarkation, we reserve the right to withdraw the ticket, cancel it and refuse travel unless and until another ticket has been purchased at the correct price for the intended journey. Cancellation under any of these circumstances will entitle you to a full refund of any sums you have paid.

1.11 Sightseeing

a) Potete salire su una delle nostre navi turistiche a condizione che abbiate un biglietto valido e disponibile per il vostro viaggio. I nostri servizi turistici sono spesso molto affollati, quindi non possiamo garantire di fornirvi un posto a sedere, o di ospitarvi, su una particolare nave o navigazione.

b) I bambini di età inferiore ai cinque anni possono viaggiare gratuitamente a condizione che siano accompagnati dal titolare del biglietto e non occupino un posto ad esclusione di un cliente pagante il prezzo pieno. Questa agevolazione è limitata a un massimo di tre bambini per titolare di biglietto. I bambini di età compresa tra i 5 (cinque) e i 15 (quindici) anni possono viaggiare alla tariffa per bambini, tranne che su quei servizi in cui è pubblicizzato che non sono disponibili tariffe per bambini.

c) Children under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by an adult (16 years +).

1.12 Experiences

a) I biglietti per i prodotti "esperienza" sono per salti specifici e, nonostante non possiamo garantire l'esecuzione di qualsiasi servizio particolare, un biglietto valido assicura che ci sia spazio per i passeggeri manifestati. In circostanze eccezionali, se per motivi imprevisti non fossimo in grado di effettuare un servizio, vi contatteremo il prima possibile.

b) Alcune crociere "Experience" sono limitate ai soli adulti. I prezzi e le categorie di età possono variare da prodotto a prodotto. Si prega di fare riferimento al nostro sito web per ulteriori dettagli.

2. Replacement tickets, Refunds and Compensation

In order to verify your purchase we will need your City Cruises booking reference which is contained in your confirmation e-mail and shown on the original ticket page. Please note that it is not possible to verify your ticket purchase with your credit or debit card reference because this does not contain the details of the ticket(s) purchased.

2.2 We do not accept liability for any loss resulting from our failure to provide an advertised service, or where delay occurs to those services, for any reason. We may, however, at our discretion, consider a refund on any ticket which is unused or only partially used as a direct result of a failure on our part to provide the advertised service for which the ticket was purchased.

2.3 Refunds will not be granted other than in the circumstances described above.

2.4 No refunds are possible after the valid date of the ticket has passed. All requests for refund or replacement ticket(s) must be made in writing to The Reservations Manager, City Cruises Ltd, Unit 6, 1 Mill Street, Scotts Sufference Wharf, London, SE1 2DF, England and be accompanied by the relevant tickets purchased, your City Cruises booking reference (contained in your confirmation e-mail and on the original ticket page) and any payment reference issued when your purchase was confirmed. Refund cannot be authorised or transacted at any other location or by any other means.

Abbiamo uno spazio limitato per ospitare sedie a rotelle a bordo e siamo quindi limitati nel numero che possiamo trasportare.
