Combined and indirect trips and itineraries
Ferryhopper is the first online platform that provides the service of booking different trips in a combined indirect route with a stopover, thus offering more options to users. However, the combination of different trips in no way implies a combined booking of these individual tickets provided either by the same or different ferry operator companies, and each ticket is sold separately. The responsibility for the successful completion of the combined travel and the right choice of response time is fully borne by the user who chooses to buy a combination of trips, ie an indirect route with a stopover. Ferryhopper bears no responsibility in any way in case the customer fails to complete the combined trip for any reason, including a delay in any trip, modification of the time day or route of a trip or choice of inadequate waiting time between the trips or any other cause that will not allow the customer to complete the combined trip. In any case, Ferryhopper informs the customer through notification messages during the booking procedure and before payment of the inherently separate nature of the different tickets, they are purchasing. Ferryhopper also at this time explains to the user that the responsibility is borne entirely by the traveler to ensure they are able to make the connections on their route.
Ferryhopper will make all reasonable attempts to warn users against booking trips with short waiting times, especially on connections that are inherently likely to be delayed.

In the rare case where the payment is successfully completed, but that the booking, for any reason is no longer technically possible, such as for example in the case of a server timeout or any other technical error, Ferryhopper will refund the customer within 24 hours the exact amount which was paid in Euros, without levying any fees of any kind. The customer’s bank may then withhold the value of the amount from the customer, based on their own procedures.
