Warranties and disclaimers of ebike Catalonia

ebike Catalonia agrees, within reasonable limits, to provide the agreed services, accurate tour descriptions, the careful selection and scrutiny of service providers and the complete delivery of the overall services.

It is pointed out explicitly that cycling is a high risk activity. The participation in all activities is at the rider’s own risk. ebike Catalonia and its tour guides do not accept liability for any accident or injury to any persons or for any damage to pieces of riding / sports equipment. The participant is responsible for insuring themselves against all occurring risks. We strongly recommend baggage insurance (e.g. against damage or loss) plus accident, illness, recovery, repatriation and liability insurance. The wearing of a safety helmet is mandatory for all our tours. ebike Catalonia reserves the right to exclude participants who disregard the wearing of a safety helmet. With regards to the impact of weather conditions and the personal ability of the participant, ebike Catalonia cannot guarantee that any tour will be carried out exactly as it is described in the programme. At the time of planning, the routes of the tours were based on the current road traffic regulations. ebike Catalonia cannot be held liable for any later changes to these regulations.

ebike Catalonia’s liability for the loss or damage to baggage will be limited to twice the total cost of the holiday. With regards to the services of third-parties (e.g. hotels), ebike Catalonia only acts as a broker and does not accept liability for the quality and supply of their services. ebike Catalonia do not accept responsibility for the cancellation of any tour due to adverse weather conditions and will not offer compensation under these circumstances. If included in the trail description, ebike Catalonia offers a baggage transfer and, in exceptional cases, passenger transport in an escort vehicle (max. 2 people). Special transfers due to any person being unable to ride with the group are at the expense of the participant. If the number of participants is not achieved, ebike Catalonia reserves the right to combine any tours without prior notice.

Travel formalities / Health

The traveller is responsible for their own arrival and departure and the compliance with regulations concerning passports and visas, as well as any mandatory vaccinations. All expenditures and disadvantages due to non-compliance are at the expense of the traveller. When registering, the participant confirms that there are no existing health issues which prohibit their participation in ebike Catalonia activities.

General remarks

Complaints should be reported immediately on site, so that the responsible person can deal with the matter as soon as possible. Claims for compensation are to be sent in writing within 30 days of the end of the holiday.

ebike Catalonia reserves the right to make changes to the programme and prices and to correct any falsities and misprints. The participant commits to respectful behaviour towards the group and to accept reasonable decisions made by ebike Catalonia’s staff. A great deal of time and cost is spent on planning the routes for the tours. The routes are an essential part of our offer and ebike Catalonia therefore prohibits the recording of these routes.

Excursions on the Beach

On the tours that include going to the beach for a swim, it is forbidden to go onto sand beaches on the bikes. Any damage to the bike for this reason will be at your own cost. We will provide you with locks to tie-up and secure the bikes before descending onto the beaches.

Note on photographs and film shots

During our tours, photos are taken, and film recordings are made which may be published on different media sites, including social media. These recordings are a representation of the persons present and the selection of persons recorded or photographed is made at random. The images may be displayed on our homepage, in printed media or on social media channels. The participant accepts that the unpaid publication of these photographs and recordings is done without their permission. If the concerned person does not agree to the publication of his or her personal image, we kindly ask you to notify us by e-mail, telephone or by post with the exact description of the picture in question. In this instance, the image will be removed within a reasonable time-frame and will no longer be published.
