Terravana would like to point out that this translation is provided for information purposes only. In case of a dispute, the French version of the General Sales Agreement will prevail.

ARTICLE 1 – AGREEMENT OF THE GENERAL CONDITIONS OF SALE
The purchase of stays or dry called services (overnight stays in several accommodations, trips…) from the company TERRAVANA, “the agency”, leads to the client’s whole accession to the general conditions of sale and the unconditional acceptance of their entire clauses.

ARTICLE 2 – PRELIMINARY INFORMATION
The preliminary information required by the articles L211-8 and R211-5 of the French Code of Tourism is made up of all the information contained on the Internet website www.terravana.com acting as e-brochure.
According to the articles L211-9 and R211-18 of the French Code of Tourism, in addition to the errata, the Agency expressly reserves the right to modify any part of its preliminary offer within the management capacity available (rooms, seating in tour, etc.).

ARTICLE 3 – REGISTRATION AND CONTRACT
The travel contract is deemed concluded only on the following TRIPLE conditions:
The reservation must have been confirmed by the agency, at the time of booking if availability of accommodations or stays at the chosen dates permits.
A copy of the signed voucher and its attachments (brochure and schedule of prices), containing information required by the provisions of Articles L211-10 and R211-6 of the French Code of Tourism, along with any errata, must have been delivered to the client who keeps a copy;
The reservation will definitely be confirmed upon receipt of the deposit payment, along with the description signed by the client proving his acceptation.
Should no answer be received within 3 days, the reservation will automatically be cancelled.
The client cannot withdraw himself once the contract is concluded, even in the case of a distance sale (article L211-20-4 of the French Code of Consumption).

ARTICLE 4 – DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT
At registration, the client pays a deposit of 30% of the total amount of the price of the trip. The payment can be made by check, vacation checks, cash or wire transfer payable to “TERRAVANA”.
The client must pay the balance at the latest 30 days before the arrival date.
Default of payment within the here above mentioned time, and after giving notice by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt, issued by the agency, which remained with no effect within the 5 days after the date of the acknowledgment, the contract will be deemed terminated by the client, and the agency will make under article 10 relating to cancellation fees.
When registration is made less than 30 days before arrival the client pays the total price of the trip.

ARTICLE 5 – TRIP CAPABILITY
The agency draws the attention of client with physical, mental or psychological health problems on the needed autonomy to carry out certain trips. The agency recommends medical examination prior to travel.

ARTICLE 6 – CANCELLATION BY THE CLIENT
In case of a cancellation, the insurance premium, the cost of visas, when obtained, are not refundable.
When cancellation comes from the client, a lump sum is withdrawn as compensation:
More than 30 days prior to arrival : 30 % of the total amount of the trip,
Less than 30 days prior to arrival : 100 % of the total amount of the trip.

When the client does not appear at the arrival of the first provision of services at the time and place mentioned in his travel book, or if the client is unable to participate because the client did not produce the necessary travel documents (in particular passport, visa, vaccination certificate), the trip will not be reimbursed in any way.
The cancellation fees can be covered by taking out cancellation insurance.

ARTICLE 7 – MODIFICATION ON BEHALF OF THE CLIENT
Any modification of the travel contract, at the request of the client, more than 30 days prior to the departure date, leads to a 40€ handling fee, unless the request is justified by a external event to the contract which imposes itself on the contract. Any modification request, less than 30 days prior to the arrival date, is considered as an cancellation on behalf of the client, leading to the application of the cancellation fees mentioned in the article 10, and a new registration.

ARTICLE 8 – CANCELLATION BY THE AGENCY
If within 30 days prior to arrival, the agency was to cancel the travel contract, it would have to notify the client by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt and refund the sums paid for the contract.

When, before departure, because of an external event that imposes itself to the agency, the agency has to modify one of the key elements of the contract, it will notify the client as soon as possible by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt.
The client can then either terminate the contract or accept the modification proposed by the agency. If the client wishes to terminate the contract, he will be able to ask for a refund of the total of the amounts paid. In both cases (termination or acceptation of the modification), the client will have to notify the agency within 7 days from acknowledgment of receipt here above mentioned.
If the client does not reply to this alternative trip or stay proposal within 7 days from acknowledgment of receipt, the client will be deemed to having agreed to the proposed modification. An addendum detailing the change or changes will be signed between the parties.
