By making the booking I accept these standard terms and conditions of business and the data protection provisions of “Turbopass GmbH”.


Standard Terms and Conditions of Business of Turbopass GmbH


I. General


These standard terms and conditions of business (referred to below as “STC(s)”) apply exclusively for consumers i.e. such natural persons whose use of the services of Turbopass GmbH cannot be attributed to their commercial or professional activities.


Via an electronic booking platform, Turbopass GmbH (referred to below as “Turbopass”) markets and procures, in its own name and on its own account, other services of third parties, e.g. entrance tickets and tickets to participate in tours. Turbopass does not provide any of the services, events or other activities itself, but offers these either individually or in a package – as City Passes or combined tickets, for example. The actual service is provided by a third party, referred to below as the “Service Provider(s)”. The Service Providers are solely liable for the provision of the services booked. The services shall be provided on the basis of any conditions of use or STCs of the Service Provider. Turbopass itself has no obligation to provide the services booked. Its sole obligation is to ensure that the Turbopass ticket gives the customer the right to conclude a contract with the Service Provider on the terms and conditions stipulated when the booking is made, without the customer having to pay for the services again.


The services marketed by Turbopass are directed towards a specific service within a specified validity period.


The conclusion of a contract with Turbopass is governed exclusively by such version of the following STCs as is valid at the time of the booking. The customer agrees to the STCs by accepting them during the order process so that these terms and conditions become part of the contract. The STCs can be viewed, printed and saved locally at any time by visiting www.turbopass.com/terms-and-conditions. In addition, the terms and conditions are sent by email with the order confirmation and ticket after the contract is made.

 

 

II. Booking process and conclusion of contract


The customer selects one or more products and clicks on “Shopping cart”. As part of the subsequent booking process, the customer then enters his personal data and billing information, selects the payment method and clicks on the “buy” button. By clicking “buy”, the customer makes an offer to enter into a contract.


By allocating a transaction number and sending the booking confirmation, either by post or electronically, Turbopass accepts the offer to enter into a contract.


No guarantee is given that the information contained on the Turbopass booking portal is correct and up-to-date. The booking confirmation sent to the customer is decisive for the definition of the subject matter of the service.


Turbopass has the right to cancel a customer’s order for which a transaction number has already been allocated if the customer is in breach of the terms and conditions established by Turbopass or the Service Provider. This unilateral right of cancellation applies to breaches of terms and conditions which the customer has been given notice of within the course of the sale. Cancellation can also take place by implication, by crediting the amounts paid. Upon declaration of the cancellation, the Turbopass tickets will be electronically stored on the system as invalidated, or reclaimed unused in case of documents sent by postal mail, so that it will no longer be possible to access the Service Provider’s services with them.


 

III. The Turbopass Ticket (City Pass, Card or admission ticket)


Depending upon the mode of dispatch available, after purchase, the Turbopass ticket will either be emailed to the e-mail address provided, sent to the postal address specified by the customer in the booking process, or will be made available for pick up. The Turbopass tickets or single components of the Pass are given a clear code. This code will be checked by the relevant Service Provider.

 

If the Turbopass ticket has not yet been redeemed, if the validity period is correct and if all other potentially necessary details are filled in, the Turbopass ticket or the single components of the Pass entitle the bearer to conclude a contract with the Service Provider without any further payment for the service. The customer will then be granted access to the service booked. After the individual code has been scanned, or after a corresponding voucher has been received, the ticket or single components of the Pass are invalidated so that it does not entitle the bearer to re-use the service.

 

Tickets issued by Turbopass are not transferrable. It is not permitted to duplicate, edit or tamper with the Turbopass ticket. If Turbopass has grounds to suspect that there has been any unauthorized duplication, it has the right to pass any stored information to the Service Provider and commence legal action.


Unless otherwise provided, a Turbopass ticket entitles the bearer to use the service booked with the Service Provider on one occasion only. If any ticket value is not fully expended or the service is not fully used, the unused difference will be forfeited. A refund will not be given.

 

Unless otherwise stated, Turbopass tickets are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase and can be used individually for the booked period during that period.

 

If the Turbopass tickets are valid for use during day periods, they will be valid from the first day of use on the first day and, if applicable, for the following uninterrupted days in a row.


Some Turbopass tickets specify a validity date. The Turbopass ticket is then only valid on this specified day or within this specified period. Use of the Service Provider’s service can only be made within the specified validity period.

 


IV. Warranty & Liability

 

The Turbopass ticket as a City Pass or Card is an all-inclusive package with a wide variety of sights and entertainment that can be used at an individual time determined by the buyer.

 

Turbopass guarantees that the Turbopass ticket entitles the holder to use the service provided by the service provider. If the service provider denies the customer the service booked with Turbopass for which the customer is not responsible, any claims of the customer against Turbopass resulting from this shall be limited to a proportional refund of the purchase price. Legal claims arising from a culpable breach of duty by Turbopass remain unaffected.

The overall package, e.g. as a "City Pass", contains the contents, offers and admission prices that are the existing regular standard of the service provider (museum, attraction, tour provider, etc.) at the time of purchase.

 

There will be no refund of the purchase price or a proportion thereof if

- museums, attractions, tours and other contents are closed in the meantime, either completely or on individual days during the period of use of the pass, without Turbopass being aware of this at the time of purchase

- in cases of force majeure such as strikes, demonstrations, fires, riots, blockades

- Exceptions to the usual entry or participation prices, such as short-term general free or reduced admission on "Culture Days", "Culture Week", "Museum Days" or similar local exceptions to the usual standard, which fall within the individual period of use of the pass.

- Changes to individual contents that occur between the launch of the product, purchase and the later individual time of use, e.g. an attraction or the provider has closed, the location has been changed, the cooperation has ended, a reservation obligation has been introduced or there are new contents and offers in the pass. All current content is communicated on the Turbopass website.

 

The complete packages are arranged in such a way that each customer has the opportunity to use other services from the various flat-rate pass packages purchased. Turbopass will only offer the customer a comparable service, a new start of the validity period or partial repayment of the purchase price if the customer is unable to visit a replacement service or has already used all other services included. If the customer does not accept any of the offered alternatives up to the beginning of the validity period, any claim of the customer for replacement due to the non-performed service shall lapse.

Turbopass does not warrant the service purchased from the respective service provider. The respective service is provided by the service provider in his own name and for his own account, which is why Turbopass is not liable to the customer for breaches of duty by the service provider during the provision of the service.

If one or more services cannot be provided due to circumstances for which Turbopass is not responsible, Turbopass will inform the customer immediately (also by publication on the Turbopass website) if Turbopass is aware of this.

If, contrary to expectations, problems arise when redeeming Turbopass tickets, Turbopass will try to find a solution. In this case, the customer can contact Turbopass Customer Service.

 

V. Cancellation, Change in booking and Loss Refund


Customers can cancel their Turbopass tickets without charge up until 1 day prior to the validity period. A cancellation fee of 30 € is applied per Pass when canceling the order.


A short email to our customer service specifying the transaction number is sufficient for this purpose. Upon receipt of this email by Turbopass, the Turbopass ticket will lose its validity.


If the customer has been sent Passes, paper Passes, paper tickets or other entry permits, the costumer has to return all components at their own cost and risk to Turbopass GmbH, within 15 days after the first day of validity. The tickets must be unused and undamaged, eventual seals must not be broken and the tickets must not bear any notes or inscriptions.

 

A refund for purchased tickets, less the cancellation fee per each Pass, will only be transferred after the Pass has been returned to Turbopass and has been checked there. In all other cases, where no Pass had been sent to the customer yet, Turbopass will refund the purchase less the cancellation fee within 14 days.


A fee of 30,- Euro per pass and ticket purchase will also be charged in the event of a change in booking of passes or data, if available and possible.


The risk of loss and the ownership rights shall pass to the buyer or recipient upon electronic transmission, collection or delivery to the courier service. Turbopass assumes no liability for loss, theft, destruction or unauthorized use of Turbopass documents. Turbopass assumes no liability for spelling mistakes in the recipient's e-mail address or incorrectly stated dates during the booking.

  

VI. Functionality of the website

 

Turbopass reserves the right to alter, limit or discontinue the scope and functions of the website at any time if these are not necessary for the execution of contracts which have already been concluded.

In some circumstances this can cause data to be lost. Therefore Turbopass does not guarantee the availability of the service or that there will be no technical disruptions or loss of data.

There shall be no entitlement to activate or redeem vouchers concerned.


7. Limitation of Liability

We accept no liability (neither explicit nor implicit) regarding vouchers, including but not limited to the explicit or implicit guarantee of fitness for use and suitability for a specific purpose. If a voucher does not work, the customer’s entitlement and our liability shall be limited to the replacement of said voucher. Should such limitations of tacit liability for defects or the exclusion or limitation of certain compensation for damages be impermissible due to applicable law, the above noted liability exclusions or limitations for you may be partially or completely invalid, or you may have additional rights.
