5.1 The traveller is invited to take a careful look at the travel itinerary and these General Terms and Conditions in order to have full knowledge of the WeRoad offer, as well as the type and characteristics of the trips. It is the traveller's responsibility to choose a trip that is suitable for their psycho-physical conditions and to contact WeRoad at the email address [email protected] in case of doubts or requests for clarification in this regard. 

5.2 On each travel itinerary, there are icons that represent the type and fundamental characteristics of the trip; through these symbols, the traveller is informed of the level of difficulty of the trip and can acquire the useful information to decide whether or not the characteristics of the trip are compatible with their psycho-physical conditions.

In the case of travellers with reduced mobility or people in need of specific medical assistance, the traveller must contact WeRoad before booking at the email address hello@weroad.com to obtain more information about the trip and to agree, if possible, on particular methods necessary or useful to enable participation in the trip in safe conditions.

5.4 For any request and/or clarification on the characteristics of the chosen trip, the traveller is invited to specify the same in the reservation request or by contacting WeRoad.

5.5 WeRoad reserves the right to refuse the booking or departure of the traveller in the event that the characteristics of the booked trip are incompatible with, or excessively risky to, the health or safety of the traveller. In this case, WeRoad will refund the amount already paid, net of non-refundable expenses already incurred up to the time of rejection of the reservation and/or departure. Similarly, the cost of flights and other services purchased individually will not be reimbursed.

6. CONCLUSION OF THE TOURIST PACKAGE CONTRACT: PAYMENTS AND PRICES

6.1 The traveller must submit the proposal for the purchase of the tourist package in the manner indicated by WeRoad on its website. The traveller and WeRoad may also agree on different methods than those indicated on the website. The confirmation of purchase of the tourist package may, in any case, be kept on a durable medium. The conclusion of the tourist package contract takes place at the time that WeRoad sends the confirmation of booking of the services requested to the traveller.

6.2 By sending the purchase proposal, the traveller must pay: a) a registration fee or practical management fee, if requested by WeRoad; b) a deposit on the price of the tourist package, which may vary depending on the tourist package that is selected by the traveller. The traveller will always be informed by WeRoad about the amount of the deposit applied. The balance must be paid within the period established by WeRoad at the time of confirmation of the reservation. If the balance is not paid within the established period, the reservation will be considered cancelled and WeRoad will not refund the deposit paid.

6.3 The price of the tourist package is determined by referring to the information outlined in the catalogues and on the WeRoad website. The price may be increased only as a result of exchange rates applied to the tourist package, costs related to transport or taxes and fees on tourist services imposed by third parties not directly involved in the execution of the package. For these changes, reference will be made to the exchange rate and prices in force on the date of publication of the itinerary, as reported in the catalogue, or to the date indicated in any updates published on the websites. In any case, the price may not be increased in the 20 days prior to departure and the revision may not exceed 8% of the price in its original amount, except in such cases the right of withdrawal of the traveller. In the event of a decrease in costs related to transport or taxes and fees on tourist services imposed by third parties not directly involved in the execution of the package reported in this clause, the traveller will be entitled to a reduction in the price of the package; WeRoad may deduct the administrative and management expenses of the practice from the reimbursement due to the traveller.  

6.4 The amount of the money pot varies depending on the destination chosen, it is not included in the basic participation fee and its amount, indicated in the travel itinerary, is a forecast of the amount of expenditure necessary for travellers to take advantage of tourist services not included in the basic participation fee, calculated on the basis of previous trips to the same locations. The money pot is used only and exclusively for group expenses, to which all participants decide to adhere. If it is not fully used, the coordinator returns the difference to all participants at the end of the trip. If the traveller advances part of the fee before the trip for the purchase of optional non-refundable activities, the fee will not be refunded in the event of cancellation of the trip.

7. PROMOTIONS

7.1 WeRoad reserves the right to offer the traveller, during the sale of the tourist package and in compliance with the law, various promotions, including, but not limited to, price reductions, prizes and other advantages.

  • proceed with the reimbursement of the amount paid if it has not been possible to add a participant to the chosen session.

8.3 In the event that WeRoad manages to add an extra place to the chosen session in on-request status, the company will request from the participant all the data necessary to complete the reservation. The deposit of €100 will be deducted from the balance of the reservation and will not replace the deposit that must be paid in order to confirm the reservation.

8.4 If the interested party decides not to participate in the trip anymore, the deposit of €100 will not be reimbursed. 

8.5 In the event that it is impossible to add an additional participant to the trip in on-request status, WeRoad will have to provide for the reimbursement and the interested party will be able to make, if interested, a new reservation.

9. MODIFICATION OF OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE TOURIST PACKAGE CONTRACT OTHER THAN THE PRICE

In the absence of communication within the aforementioned period, the proposal for modification made by WeRoad is considered accepted.

  • If the changes to the tourist package contract result in a lower-quality or lower-cost package, the traveller is entitled to an appropriate price reduction.

If the traveller exercises the right of withdrawal, WeRoad will reimburse all the amounts paid by the traveller without undue delay and in any case no later than 14 days from the exercise of the right of withdrawal.

10.1 Before departure, the traveller may withdraw from the contract, without paying penalties, in the following cases:

  • the number of people registered for the tourist package is less than the minimum required by the tourist package contract and therefore by the catalogue/itinerary, and WeRoad communicates its withdrawal from the tourist package contract to the traveller within 20 days before departure in the case of trips that last more than 6 days, and 7 days before in the case of trips that last between two and six days.

  • WeRoad is unable to execute the tourist package contract due to unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances and communicates the withdrawal to the traveller without undue delay before the start of the tourist package. If unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances impact the activities on site, WeRoad will not be required to reimburse any amount deriving from the non-use or performance of such activities.

  • Refund of the flight (against a proof of purchase in Economy class) shall take place only in the event that WeRoad withdraws from the tourist package contract in relation to a confirmed session.

  • WeRoad proceeds with all the prescribed refunds without undue delay and in any case within the period established by law. The withdrawal of WeRoad involves the termination of functionally connected contracts entered into with third parties, without any liability on the part of WeRoad.

13. WEROAD'S RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE UNSUCCESSFUL EXECUTION OF THE PACKAGE AND FOR THE SUPERVENING IMPOSSIBILITY DURING THE EXECUTION OF THE PACKAGE

13.2 The traveller, promptly informs WeRoad, taking into account the circumstances of the case, of any defects of conformity detected during the execution of a tourist service provided for by the tourist package contract. The dispute must be made by means of a declaration communicated in writing and addressed to WeRoad at the email address: [email protected] or at the certified email address: [email protected].

13.3 Where expressly included in the tourist package, the essential information regarding visits/excursions or other tourist services are clearly indicated in the travel itinerary and also reported in the "What is included" section of the same. Otherwise, the visits/excursions or other tourist services indicated in the travel itinerary are to be understood as optional and not included in the price of the tourist package.

13.4 WeRoad shall remedy the lack of conformity, unless this is impossible or excessively expensive, taking into account the extent of the lack of conformity and the value of the tourist services affected by the defect.

13.5 If WeRoad does not remedy the defect pursuant to paragraph 3 above, the traveller is entitled to the price reduction, as well as to compensation for the damage suffered as a result of the lack of conformity, unless WeRoad proves that the lack of conformity is attributable to the traveller or to a third party or is due to unforeseeable, extraordinary and unavoidable circumstances.

13.6 Without prejudice to the exceptions referred to in paragraph 4 above, if WeRoad does not remedy the lack of conformity within a reasonable period set by the traveller with the dispute made pursuant to paragraph 2, the latter may personally remedy the defect and request the reimbursement of the necessary, reasonable and documented expenses; if WeRoad refuses to remedy the lack of conformity or if it is necessary to remedy it immediately, the traveller does not need to specify a deadline.

13.7 If, after departure, WeRoad is unable to provide, for any reason except for the traveller's own situation, an essential part of the services provided for in the tourist package contract, WeRoad must prepare adequate alternative solutions for the continuation of the planned trip that do not involve charges of any kind borne by the traveller, or reimburse the latter within the limits of the difference between the services originally provided and those carried out.

13.8 The traveller may reject the alternative solutions proposed only if they are not comparable to what has been agreed in the contract or if the reduction in the price granted is inadequate.

13.9 If no alternative solution is possible, or the solution prepared by WeRoad is rejected by the traveller because it is not comparable to what has been agreed in the contract, or because the price reduction granted is inadequate, WeRoad shall provide, without any supplement to the price, a means of transport equivalent to the original one provided for the return to the place of departure or to a different place that may be agreed upon, compatible with the availability of means of transport and places, and shall reimburse them to the extent of the difference between the cost of the services provided and that of the services carried out until the time of early return.

14. OBLIGATIONS OF THE TRAVELLER

14.1 The traveller is required to read and accept these general terms and conditions before sending the reservation request.

14.2 During the negotiations, and in any case before the conclusion of the contract, the traveller is provided, in writing, with updated general information relating to health obligations and the documentation necessary for expatriation.

14.3 Travellers must inform the intermediary and the organiser about their citizenship at the time of booking the tourist package or tourist service and, at the time of departure, they must definitely check that they have the vaccination certificates, the individual passport and any other document valid for all countries included in the itinerary, as well as residence visas, transit visas and health certificates that may be required. Travellers also undertake to transmit to WeRoad a copy of their individual passport and any other document valid for all the countries involved in the itinerary within 45 days of the departure of the trip. If travellers do not send the required documentation and the departure of the trip is scheduled in less than 45 days, WeRoad may not guarantee participation in the trip or the price of the package may vary; therefore, it reserves the right to withdraw from the contract.

14.4 Without prejudice to the information obligations borne by WeRoad, in order to assess the socio-political security situation, health situation and any other useful information relating to the destination countries and, therefore, the objective usability of the services purchased or to be purchased, the traveller must undertake to consult the official general information provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the state where the consumer resides and disclosed through the relevant institutional website  and the website of the World Health Organisation – International Travel and Health portal (https://www.who.int/ith/en/). The above information is not contained in the catalogues of tour operators  – online or on paper – since they contain general descriptive information and not temporarily changing information. The same must therefore be assumed by the travellers. In any case, the traveller must check with the competent national authorities  before departure, making any necessary changes prior to travel. 

14.5 No responsibility for the non-departure of one or more travellers can be attributed to WeRoad in the event that the travellers, despite having received all the necessary information, have not made efforts to obtain the documents, certificates or vaccines necessary to undertake the trip.

14.6 Without prejudice to the information obligations of WeRoad, if on the date of booking the chosen destination appears, from the institutional information channels, a location subject to "warning" for security reasons, any traveller who subsequently exercises their withdrawal may not invoke the termination of the contractual cause connected to the security conditions of the country.

14.7 Travellers/tourists must behave in such a way as to guarantee and not compromise the safety, tranquillity and enjoyment of the trip by other travellers/tourists.Travellers must also adopt suitable behaviour with WeRoad's customer service staff, both in the pre-booking and post-booking phases, andcomply with the rules of normal prudence and diligence and the specific rules in force in the destination countries of the trip, with all the provisions provided to them by WeRoad, as well as with the regulations, administrative or legislative provisions relating to the tourist package. The traveller will be held liable for all damages that WeRoad and/or the seller may suffer, also due to failure to comply with the obligations indicated above, including the expenses necessary for their repatriation.

14.8 The traveller must provide the organiser with all the documents and information in their possession relevant to the exercise of their right of subrogation against third parties responsible for the damages, and is responsible to WeRoad for any prejudice caused to their right of subrogation.

14.9 The traveller will also communicate in writing to WeRoad, at the time of the proposal for the purchase of a tourist package, and therefore before sending the confirmation of booking of the services by WeRoad, the particular personal requests that may be the subject of specific agreements on the modalities of the trip, whenever it is possible to implement them, and which will in any case be the subject of a specific agreement between the traveller and WeRoad.

15. REJECTION OF NEW RESERVATIONS.

15.1 WeRoad reserves the right to cancel new bookings by travellers who, in previous group trips or in relations with WeRoad, have violated the obligations of conduct referred to in Article 14 and who have consequently been informed in writing of the impossibility of booking future trips with WeRoad. In the event that, despite the prior notification of refusal of new reservations, the traveller still makes a new reservation, WeRoad reserves the right to cancel that reservation within a period of 30 days from the reservation. In this case, WeRoad shall reimburse in full the amount paid by the traveller as a fee or reservation charge, excluding from that point on the reimbursement of any further sum or compensation for any further damage.

16. FINES, DEDUCTIBLES AND DAMAGE CAUSED WHILE DRIVING VEHICLES

21.1 WeRoad provides adequate assistance without delay to travellers who are in difficulty, in particular by providing appropriate information regarding health services, local authorities and consular assistance and by assisting travellers in carrying out remote communications and helping them find alternative tourist services. For post-booking assistance, the traveller can call WeRoad at the phone number +39 3933354846 or contact WeRoad via WhatsApp at the number +39 3933354846 or by email at: [email protected]

22.2 WeRoad may claim payment of a reasonable cost for such assistance if the problem is caused intentionally by the traveller or by their fault, within the limits of the expenses actually incurred.

22. WAIVER

22.1 During the trip, photos and videos of the trip will be collected that may also include the traveller (the "images"), to allow him/her greater participation in the trip purchased, as well as for advertising purposes.

22.2 By purchasing the Tourist Package – therefore, by accepting the General Terms and Conditions – the traveller assigns free of charge to WeRoad the right to use, disseminate, reproduce, process, modify, publish, communicate to the public, transmit, on any medium, including on social network pages, the images for WeRoad's informative and promotional purposes. In any case, the traveller is free not to participate in the shots/photos and/or to revoke this authorisation at any time by writing to WeRoad.

23. APPLICABLE LAW – JURISDICTION

23.1 The tourist package and the tourist package contract are governed by Italian law. Any dispute that may arise between the traveller and WeRoad regarding the validity, formation, execution, fulfilment or termination of the tourist package contract will be the exclusive responsibility of the court of the place in which the traveller has their residence or domicile. 

24. PRIVACY PROTECTION

24.1 The traveller authorises the organiser to use and communicate their personal data to third parties in relation to obligations related to the tourist package contract pursuant to the current European Regulation on privacy and personal data protection.

25. INDIVIDUAL TOURIST SERVICES AND RELATED TOURIST SERVICES

25.1 Contracts relating to the offer of only the transport service, only the accommodation service, or any other separate tourist service, cannot be configured as a case of negotiation of travel arrangements or tourist packages, and do not enjoy the protections provided by the tourist package contract. The contractual conditions of the individual supplier and the applicable legal regulations apply to these contracts. The responsibility for the correct fulfilment of the contract lies with the service provider.

25.2 In case of booking of related tourist services, the traveller benefits from protection aimed at reimbursing payments received for services not provided due to the insolvency of the professional who has collected the sums paid by the traveller. This protection does not provide for any reimbursement in the event of the insolvency of the relevant service provider.

26. OFFENSES COMMITTED ABROAD

The law makes offenses related to prostitution and child pornography punishable by imprisonment, even if committed abroad.
