4. CANCELLATION CONDITIONS AND FEES
If it is necessary for a client to cancel their itinerary, the client must inform Paris-Toujours and their insurer by any means possible, as soon as possible, after the event causing the cancellation takes place and obtain written acknowledgement of this communication. The date of the initial written
correspondence with Paris-Toujours regarding the cancellation issue will be the date applied to the calculation of the cancellation fee. We draw your attention to the fact that it is the insurance company who assesses the case and reimburses the cancellation fee based on the documents provided directly
to the insurance company by the client and the date of the client’s decision to cancel the itinerary.

If one or more clients listed on the same booking form cancel their itinerary, which is continued by the other participants:
– For individual services (unshared): the scale of cancellation charges referred above (4.1) will be calculated, for the client(s) cancelling their itinerary, on the costs of the individual services not already consumed on the date of cancellation;

4.3. Special cases:

5. TRAVEL AND TRANSPORTATION FROM/TO PARIS AIRPORT OR TRAIN STATION
Regarding your travel and transportation to Paris airport or train station and to your place when you return home (flight, train, car service, accommodation…), we recommend you to organize flexible or refundable arrangements.

refund any additional cost incurred.
Upon approving the Paris-Toujours booking form, the price is firm, final and in euros. Paris-Toujours may be forced to modify pricing and itineraries, within the law, to take into account:
• Variations in transport costs particularly related to fuel costs
• Changes to levies and taxes relating to the services provided
If price changes are made due to above mentioned reasons, Paris-Toujours agrees to inform the client no later than 30 days before the arrival date. If one or more confirmed clients from the same booking form cancel their itinerary, the itinerary can still proceed when the group has paid, before their arrival,
the additional price of the services that had to be modified due to the cancellation by the client(s). Any refusal by clients to accept this adjustment will be considered as a cancellation and the scale ofcancellation fees (as mentioned in item 4 above) will apply.
7. UNUSED/MODIFIED SERVICES
Services modified by the client with our partners are subject to the terms and conditions of the local provider. Additional services or replacement services resulting in an additional cost must be paiddirectly to the local provider and are not in any way the responsibility of Paris-Toujours. Services not used at the destination (transfers, tours and activities, accommodation…) will not be refunded.
Paris-Toujours cannot be held liable for the consequences of the following events:
- Lost or stolen tickets for museums, ground transportations, shows…
- Lost items in vehicles
- Incidents or unforeseeable and insurmountable events caused by a third party outside Paris-Toujours such as: war, political unrest, strikes outside of Paris-Toujours, technical incidents beyond the control of Paris-Toujours, airspace constraints, adverse weather conditions, delays, mechanical problems, and the loss or theft of baggage or other effects. Delays originating from the reasons specified above, as well as possible itinerary changes as a result, will not warrant any compensation whatsoever, including due to a change in the length of the original program. Additional costs as a result of the disturbance (such as taxes, hotels, cars…) are to be paid by the client.
- In the case of a cancellation due to an act of God, client safety concerns and/or by order of an administrative authority, Paris-Toujours reserves the right to change dates, times and routes if they consider that the client’s safety may be compromised.
In the event of Paris-Toujours being held liable by virtue of actions performed by service providers, the compensation limits provided for by the international conventions in accordance with article L 211-17-IV of the Tourism Code will apply. Except in the event of bodily injury, the maximum financial liability of Paris-Toujours will be limited to three times the total price of the itinerary package.
