2.1 Ordering via the Internet

Once the order has been completed, THE SERVICE SUPPLIER will acknowledge receipt, without undue delay, by electronic means (e-mail, printable page on the site, etc.). 

It is up to THE CUSTOMER to check the accuracy of the order and to report any errors immediately. The sale of Services will only be considered definitive once THE SERVICE SUPPLIER has sent THE CUSTOMER confirmation of acceptance of the order by e-mail - and once the stipulated payments have been received in full. 

Any order placed on the "https://www.brantomecroisieres.com/" website constitutes the formation of a contract concluded remotely between THE CUSTOMER and THE SERVICE SUPPLIER.

THE CUSTOMER indicates the services he wishes to order. 

THE CUSTOMER is then informed of the various steps to follow and reads the general terms and conditions of sale before confirming his order.

The sale of services will only be considered definitive once confirmation of acceptance of the order by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER has been given or sent to the customer by post or e-mail - and once all the stipulated payments have been received. 

THE CUSTOMER may pay by bank transfer, cash or cheques, holiday vouchers at the counter, in return for which the CUSTOMER will be given a ticket for boarding.

The Services offered by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER are provided at the current prices shown on the "https://www.brantomecroisieres.com/" website on the date of the final confirmation of the order by THE CUSTOMER. Prices are expressed in Euros and include VAT. 

Prices may be revised at any time without notice. The prices invoiced are those in force on the day of booking. They are subject to the VAT rates in force on the day of the service. Any new taxes or charges that may be introduced, or any change to current charges or taxes, will automatically lead to a readjustment of prices. 

An invoice for an amount greater than €25 is drawn up by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER and given or sent to the Customer on request when the ordered Services are provided.  

3.2 Booking conditions. 

For group bookings of more than 10 people, the exact number of participants must be confirmed by e-mail or telephone no later than 3 working days before the date of the service.  Within this period of more than 72 hours (seventy-two) before the date of the service, THE CUSTOMER has the option of reducing the number of participants indicated at the time of the initial reservation by up to 10% or increasing it subject to availability. In the absence of confirmation of the number of participants within this period, THE SERVICE SUPPLIER will invoice the service on the basis of the number of participants indicated on the initial reservation. 

Any unscheduled services or overtime will be invoiced at the end of the service. 


THE SERVICE SUPPLIER accepts interbank transfers, cash payments in euros, cheques drawn exclusively on a bank branch domiciled in France, and holiday vouchers.  Services may also be provided in exchange for a voucher issued by a company that must be approved by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER. 

Payments made by THE CLIENT will only be considered final once the sums due to THE SERVICE SUPPLIER have been effectively collected. 

In the event of late payment and payment of the sums due by THE CLIENT beyond the deadline set out in the Special Terms and Conditions, and by virtue of the legal provisions, THE SERVICE SUPPLIER may decide ipso jure and without further formality to apply late payment interest which will be 3 

times the legal interest rate. This interest will run from the date initially scheduled for payment until full payment. A fixed indemnity for collection costs of €40 will also be applied. Late payment will result in all sums owed by THE CUSTOMER becoming immediately payable, without prejudice to any other action that THE SERVICE SUPPLIER may be entitled to take against THE CUSTOMER in this respect. 

In addition, THE SERVICE SUPPLIER reserves the right, in the event of non-compliance with the payment conditions set out above, to suspend or cancel the provision of the Services ordered by THE CUSTOMER and/or to suspend the performance of its obligations. 

The CLIENT may not be billed for any additional costs in excess of those borne by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER for the use of a means of payment. 


5.1 Cancellation by THE CUSTOMER. 

The services offered by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER are not subject to the application of any right of withdrawal and in particular are not subject to the right of withdrawal provided for in articles L. 121-21 et seq. of the French Consumer Code with regard to distance selling, in application of article L121-21-8 of the French Consumer Code. 

However, in the event of cancellation by THE CLIENT, THE SERVICE SUPPLIER will apply the conditions defined below. 

  • For any cancellation made less than 72 working hours before the scheduled date, the price of the reservation will be cashed in full by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER and will not give rise to any compensation. 
  • However, if this cancellation is made up to 72 working hours before the scheduled date of the service, THE CLIENT will not be reimbursed by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER. 

5.2 Cancellation by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER. 

In the event of it being impossible to carry out all or part of the Service after the order has been placed on the agreed date, THE SERVICE SUPPLIER will inform THE CUSTOMER by email, telephone, SMS or post as soon as possible in order to find out its decision as to whether or not to continue with this order. 

For the "individual" CUSTOMER, if the order is not maintained in the above case, he/she will be entitled, as far as possible, to a replacement by a Service equivalent to the Service not provided and, failing this, to a refund. The reimbursement will be made by the means of payment used by THE CUSTOMER to pay for his/her order, unless an exemption has been accepted by THE CUSTOMER, and at the latest within 30 days of the payment being made by THE CUSTOMER (article L121-20-3 of the French Consumer Code). Apart from the refund of its order to THE CUSTOMER, no other compensation of any kind whatsoever will be due by THE SERVICE SUPPLIER in the event that the Service is unavailable. 

The Service Provider's guarantee is limited to reimbursement of the Services actually paid for by THE CUSTOMER. 

THE CUSTOMER may under no circumstances claim payment of any expenses, indemnities or damages that may be claimed in this respect and shall be responsible for organising the event at another venue.

THE SERVICE SUPPLIER may not be considered responsible or in default for any delay or non-performance resulting from the occurrence of a case of force majeure as usually recognised by French case law, 


In the absence of reservations or complaints expressly made by THE CUSTOMER upon receipt of the Services, the latter shall be deemed to comply with the order, in terms of quantity and quality.

Complaints will only be accepted insofar as the difficulties to which they relate have been pointed out on the spot in order to enable them to be remedied and to limit the prejudice that the CLIENT may claim. Complaints will be examined with the utmost care and THE SERVICE SUPPLIER will endeavour to provide an appropriate response. 

No claim will be validly accepted if these formalities and deadlines are not complied with by THE CUSTOMER. 

THE SERVICE SUPPLIER will reimburse THE CUSTOMER or rectify the service (as far as possible) as soon as possible and at its own expense, in accordance with the appropriate terms and conditions agreed by THE CUSTOMER, for the Services whose lack of conformity has been duly proven by THE CUSTOMER. 


7.1 The SERVICE SUPPLIER's rights and obligations. 

THE PROVIDER undertakes to use the appropriate means to ensure that the cruises run smoothly under the conditions set out in the booking and declares that it has taken out the insurance necessary for the performance of its activities. 

As the cruises are subject to the rules applicable to inland navigation, THE PROVIDER reserves the right to modify, without prior notice or compensation, its cruises (particularly with regard to the itinerary, duration, timetables, boat, etc.) or to cancel them at any time, including on the day of departure, in application of the aforementioned rules or in the event of, in particular, and without this list being limitative, force majeure, terrorist acts or threats, sudden flooding, flooding, bad weather, storms, instructions given by the authorities, mechanical incidents and, in general, any event likely to jeopardise the safety of the persons and goods transported. 

In the event of cancellation or modification, THE SERVICE SUPPLIER will make its best efforts to offer alternative solutions. 

7.2 Rights and obligations of THE CUSTOMER 

No later than 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time, THE CUSTOMER must arrive at the boat's embarkation point.

If THE CUSTOMER does not show up, or arrives 10 minutes before the departure of the boat, for whatever reason, he/she will not be entitled to his/her place on board, nor will he/she be entitled to any reimbursement or compensation if he/she had purchased his/her ticket in advance. 

THE PROVIDER reserves the right to refuse boarding to passengers whose behaviour (e.g. drunkenness) is such as to disturb the smooth running of the cruise. Furthermore, no animals or equipment will be allowed on the boat that could be dangerous for the staff or passengers. 

From the moment they are invited to embark, each passenger must comply strictly with the instructions and safety instructions given by the boat's staff and must look after their own safety and that of any persons in their care and/or property (clothing, luggage and other personal effects) of which they are the owner, keeper or guardian; in particular, each passenger must refrain from entering any unauthorised areas of the boat, in particular the engine room and the cockpit. 

Smoking is not permitted on board. 


The gift cards issued by THE PROVIDER have a limited period of validity. After the expiry date, gift cards are neither refundable nor exchangeable. It is compulsory to present the gift card before boarding on the day of the service. If THE CUSTOMER or the beneficiary is not present on the day of the booked service, the gift card is neither refundable nor exchangeable. Gift cards are payable 100% at the time of order and may be sent subject to receipt of payment. Lost or stolen gift cards cannot be exchanged or refunded. 

Bookings for gift card services are subject to availability. 


As the cruises are subject to all the rules applicable to inland navigation, THE PROVIDER reserves the right to assess whether or not the river is navigable and may under no circumstances be held responsible in the event of modification or cancellation of a cruise resulting from the application of the aforementioned rules and in general from any event likely to jeopardise the safety of the people and goods transported. 

THE SERVICE SUPPLIER may not under any circumstances be held responsible for damage of any kind resulting in particular from force majeure, terrorist acts or threats, sudden flooding, flooding, bad weather, storms, technical incidents, failure of one of its service providers and in general any other event of any kind whatsoever that is beyond the control of THE SERVICE SUPPLIER. 

THE SERVICE SUPPLIER declines all responsibility in the event of theft or damage caused to passengers' clothing, hand luggage and other personal effects, and reserves the right to invoice the customer for any material damage caused to the boat and its equipment, by himself, and in general, by any person for whom he is responsible (accompanying minor, etc...). 

THE SERVICE SUPPLIER declines all liability in the event of the CLIENT falling into the water, particularly if the CLIENT has not complied with the embarkation and disembarkation instructions, and if the CLIENT leans out of the boat.

THE SERVICE SUPPLIER declines all liability in the event of the CLIENT's failure to comply with these Special Terms and Conditions of Sale, and with the general and specific police regulations, without prejudice to the damages and interest that it may claim on account of the damage and prejudice that it has suffered as a result of this failure to comply. 


THE SERVICE SUPPLIER guarantees, in accordance with legal provisions and without additional payment, THE CUSTOMER against any lack of conformity resulting from a defect in the performance of the Services. 

In order to assert its rights, THE CUSTOMER must inform THE SERVICE SUPPLIER, in writing, of the existence of defects in conformity under the conditions set out above in the "Complaints" article. 

Once THE SERVICE SUPPLIER has established the defect, the latter's guarantee is limited to replacement by an equivalent Service or reimbursement of the Service actually paid for by THE CUSTOMER and THE SERVICE SUPPLIER may not be considered to be liable or in default for any delay or non-performance following the occurrence of a case of force majeure usually recognised by French case law.
