Terms and Conditions - Sale of Services
1. ORDER CONFIRMATION AND USE OF THE SERVICE BOOKED:
Once the charge on the card has been confirmed, a copy of the reservation will be sent automatically to the e-mail address. As soon as the service is confirmed, the original voucher will be sent to the e-mail address in the booking form, it is therefore important to check the correct email address has been entered in the booking form.
The receipt of the copy of the order immediately after the order has been placed does NOT constitute the final order confirmation. Bookings are subject to availability.
The service may be deemed confirmed ONLY upon receipt of the confirmation voucher, generally (indicatively and not exclusively) one business day after the order (Monday for orders received on Friday and during the weekend), with the exception of services on the waiting list and museums that give advance confirmation of the visit within an established timeframe. The customer is obliged to check the conditions of confirmation for the individual service before making the reservation.
Admission to the booked museum is granted upon presentation of the confirmation voucher at the museum's reservations desk. For tours and excursions, the confirmation voucher must be presented to staff at the indicated tour meeting point at the appointed time. Customers without the confirmation voucher will NOT be permitted admission to museums or granted participation in the tours.
Please note that it may be required to show proof of identity at the museum, especially if reduced price tickets have been booked.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Confirmed time is not always the same time as the time requested on the order form. The museum or attraction will automatically confirm the closest available time, which can be any time during opening hours on the selected date, if the preferred time is no longer available.
If access to the museum is sold out on the requested date and there are alternative dates, the customer will be contacted by e-mail to request his/her availability. However, if no alternative date is available, the order will be canceled and the payment for the booking reimbursed.
2. CHANGES AND CANCELLATION OF SERVICE:
During periods of major crowding, admission to museums and monuments may be delayed despite the reservation. Weekend a Firenze Srl cannot be held accountable or responsible for any such disruptions (the occurrence of which is very rare), as they are a result of the internal organization of the museum booked.
Weekend a Firenze Srl is not responsible for any changes or cancellations effected by the management of the museums for the programs offered. Similarly, Weekend a Firenze Srl cannot be held responsible for cancellations or changes of booked tours for reasons of unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure (e.g. bad weather conditions, strikes, changes in the opening or closing schedules of museums and monuments, delays, or other issues). In these cases, the customer is entitled to a refund of the amount paid for the ticket only, excluding the booking fee.
Weekend a Firenze Srl is not responsible for damage caused by third parties or for reasons beyond its control, and is not responsible for the loss of valuables, luggage, and other items during the excursions and visits.
Weekend a Firenze Srl is not responsible for any kind of lack of service that could occur during the use of the confirmed reservation.
3. CANCELLATION OF RESERVATION:
Generally, museum reservations, once confirmed, may be canceled, and the customer will receive reimbursement of the cost of the unused ticket, excluding booking fees.
Nevertheless, all excursions and some museums have specific cancellation policies. The customer is therefore obliged to check the cancellation policy in the description of each service before making a reservation, as cancellation may be excluded, resulting in the impossibility of reimbursement even of the mere cost of the ticket.
4. CANCELLATION OF RESERVATION â€“ exclusions
With regard to paragraph 3, according to established Italian and European standards of consumer protection, the right to cancel is excluded as services provided are within the definition of 'leisure activities' (article 59 letter a â€“ n L.206/2005 and later changes, included in the European Directive 83/2011/EU). The cost of the reservation is therefore never refundable, whilst the refund of the cost of unused services is bound by the guidelines and cancellation policy adopted by the service provider itself, for which Weekend a Firenze Srl has no power to change.
5. RESPONSIBILITY: Limitations and Exclusions
The liability of Weekend a Firenze Srl to the customer limits itself to the generation and transmission of the web voucher, according to the terms and conditions set out above in points 1, 2, and 3, and only upon payment of the amount due. However, even in relation to that hypothesis, Weekend a Firenze Srl cannot be liable for any indirect or special damage, their liability being limited to reimburse the cost of the reservation, with the exclusion of any other claim of damage and/or refund.
Any other disruption or damage to persons or property, especially if occurring at the time of the actual booked visit, are not the responsibility of Weekend a Firenze Srl and can in no instance be charged to Weekend a Firenze Srl or questioned.
Any claim by the customer must be made in writing via email within 3 days of the completion of the booked visit and confirmed with a letter sent by certified mail within 30 days from that same date. Beyond this time frame no complaints will be taken into account.
Any dispute will be settled exclusively by the Court of Florence.
