TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR TOURS
The following terms and conditions for tours apply to all tours of the tour operator, REUTHER-ENTERTAINMENTS GmbH + Co. KG, and are approved by the "tour participant" upon registration.
Tour operator: REUTHER-ENTERTAINMENTS GmbH + Co. KG, Buchenweg 13, 96450 Coburg, Germany, hereinafter referred to as "Reuthers".
Upon receipt of the registration by the tour participant, a binding offer to conclude a tour contract will be made. The tour contract will come to be upon receipt of the acceptance from Reuthers. This does not require any particular form.
2. Deposit / Payment
Upon receipt of the acceptance from Reuthers and the payment information, a deposit amounting to 20% of the tour price is due for payment. Upon receipt of the deposit, the tour participant will receive a detailed tour confirmation. The payment of the remaining balance of the tour price is to be received by Reuthers without further request at latest 90 days before the tour begins. If payments due are not made or not made in full, and a payment by the tour participant is also not made after a reminder is given with a deadline, Reuthers may rescind the respective tour contract and demand cancellation fees as compensation in accordance with No. 7.
3. Services and price
The services vary and are specified in the respective tour description. Reuthers reserves the right to change the program and the accommodations as necessary. In doing so, Reuthers attempt to maintain the character of the tour and to render similar services. In the event of increases in prices and/or exchange rates for third party services, Reuthers must reserve the right to increase the tour price to the extent that the increase per person affects the tour price. In this case, Reuthers is to inform the tour participants thereof without delay, at latest however 20 days before the tour commences. In the event of price increases by more than 8%, the tour participant is entitled to rescind the tour contract free of charge. Reuthers will refund the previously paid tour price without delay.
4. Motorcycle tours, motorcycle rental, and security deposit
Group tours by motorcycle require more cooperation on the part of the tour participants that a conventional package holiday. There may be unforeseen and unplanned events that contribute to the unique character of such a tour. The tour participants must be considerate to each other, fit into the group, and follow the instructions of the tour guide. In the interest of a smooth group tour, we reserve the right in the event of non-compliance with the instructions of the tour guide or even danger to the other tour participants to exclude individual incorrigible tour participants and, if necessary, to secure the rental motorcycle. Such tour participants are in no case entitled to a refund of the tour price, and all costs incurred in this connection are to be borne by the incorrigible tour participant. When picking up the rental motorcycle, a safety deposit is payable at the rental station and a rental contract will be concluded. The amount of the deposit varies depending on the rental station and will be communicated to the tour participant in the tour book or upon request. This deposit will be refunded when the undamaged motorcycle is returned. The rental period is not interrupted if the vehicle cannot be used, regardless of whose fault or the reason, or by the inability of the renter/participant to drive. In the event that the type of motorcycle booked is not available at pickup, Reuthers reserves the right to provide a motorcycle of equal quality. For guided tours, the rental motorcycle is intended exclusively for the planned tour with the tour guide. Any other independent tour or use is expressly prohibited. In case of violation by the tour participant or in the event of a re-booking (which is possible and subject to a charge) during a tour to a self-drive tour, Reuthers is not responsible for trips carried out independently. The tour participant has the opportunity to participate in the tours with his/her own motorcycle and is responsible his-/herself for the technical soundness the motorcycle. The vehicle is to be serviced by an authorized repair shop, and the corresponding proof thereof is to be submitted before the tour begins. The vehicle is to be fully refueled at the participant's own expense before the first day's stage and after any additional trips made independently during the tour. In case of non-compliance and any resulting unplanned stops, the tour participant is liable to Reuthers for compensation of the damages caused by the stop. Additional costs incurred, such as vehicle recovery, a safe shelter for the vehicle, repairs of technical defects of the vehicle, or similar, are to be borne by the tour participant his-/herself. In the event that the tour must be aborted due to a defect of one's own vehicle, the tour participant is obligated to pay the stipulated tour price. The tour will be continued in such a case. The tour participant his-/herself is responsible for the suitability of his/her vehicle. There is no claim to replacement transport by Reuthers.

The tour participant his-/herself is responsible for the compliance with all regulations important for carrying out the tour and all disadvantages that arise from the non-compliance with such regulations.
7. Cancellation of the tour by the tour participant and cancellation fees
The tour participant can cancel the tour contract at any time before the tour begins. Reuthers thereby loses the claim to the agreed tour price and can demand a reasonable compensation/cancellation fee, if the cancellation is not the responsibility of Reuthers and there are no extraordinary circumstances in the country of the tour, which significantly affect the execution of the tour.
Cancellation fees are a flat rate. They are determined by the tour price minus the value of expenses saved by Reuthers as well as minus what Reuthers gains through other use of the services.
The following flat rates also take into account the period of time between the cancellation and the start of the tour. They are to be justified by Reuthers upon request of the tour participant. The tour participant is furthermore at liberty to prove that Reuthers has not suffered any damage due to his cancellation or that the cancellation fees to which Reuthers is entitled are significantly lower than the compensation flat rate demanded by Reuthers.
Reuthers reserves the right to claim a higher, individually calculated compensation instead of the following flat rate and to quantify and substantiate this in concrete terms if higher expenses than the applicable flat rate have been incurred.
For tour cancellations received by Reuthers 90 or more days before the tour begins, a cancellation fee amounting to the deposit (20% of the tour price) will be charged. For tour cancellations received by Reuthers less than 90 days before the tour begins, the following cancellation fees will be charged:
89 to 60 days: 50% of the tour price;
59 to 30 days: 60% of the tour price;
29 to 10 days: 70% of the tour price;

However, Reuthers retains the claim to the tour price. Such tour participants may in no case claim a refund of the tour price, and the incorrigible tour participant is to bear all costs incurred in this connection his-/herself.

Reuthers may terminate the tour contract due to force majeure at any time, the cause of which lies outside of Reuthers' influence (force majeure, strikes, disasters, wars, etc.). In such a case, the tour price paid or an amount saved before the end of a tour will be refunded to the tour participant without delay.
