It is mandatory for consumers to provide their true identity.
This identity provided by the Customer will be the one used by ESCAPADES FUTEES for the various reservations required to complete the half-day/day/animation/service. However, if it proves that the identity entered is false, incorrect or more generally than it does not correspond to the Customer’s identity documents, it is likely that the Customer cannot board the means of transport or carry out an activity provided for in its program.
In such a case, the responsibility for ESCAPADES FUTEES cannot be sought if ESCAPADES FUTEES has made the reservations in accordance with the identity entered by the Customer at the time of his registration or reservation.

The works council or the association at the time of its registration must inform all the elements necessary for its identification that are requested by ESCAPADES FUTEES.
When a works council places an order directly with ESCAPADES FUTEES, the rules of the consumer code do not apply.
In addition, ESCAPADES FUTEES will make the various reservations thanks to the information provided by the works council. In the event of erroneous, false or missing information that would not allow employees to take part in the service, the responsibility of ESCAPADES FUTEES cannot be engaged if the reservations were made in accordance with the information provided.

8. MODIFICATION OF THE CONTRACT
8.1. Modification by the Customer
Any request for cancellation or modification must be sent by post or by mail with acknowledgement of receipt. The date of receipt of the request by ESCAPADES FUTEES will be the one retained for the costs due in case of modification or cancellation of the Order.
8.1.1. Modification before departure :
ESCAPADES FUTEES will endeavour to take into account the modifications requested before departure. However, some changes cannot be satisfied, particularly because of the availability of benefits, which is not the responsibility of ESCAPADES FUTEES.
If ESCAPADES FUTEES is able to respond favourably to a modification request made by the Customer after validation of the Order by ESCAPADES FUTEES, this change will be invoiced:
20€ per booking file plus any additional cost of the service, if the request is made more than 15 calendar days before the date of departure.
35€ per booking file plus any additional cost of the service, if this request is made less than 15 calendar days before the date of departure.
8.1.2. Change of departure dates :
Any request for a change to the date of departure will be treated as a cancellation and will result in the application of Article 9
8.1.3. Modification after departure :

8.2. Modified by ESCAPADES FUTEES
8.2.1. Modification before departure
If, before departure, ESCAPADES FUTEES is forced to make a change in the services included in the tourist service ordered, ESCAPADES FUTEES will notify the Customer by any means allowing to obtain an acknowledgement of receipt, as soon as possible.
The Customer can then:
Either terminate the contract and obtain full repayment of the amounts paid ;
Either accept the change proposed by ESCAPADES FUTEES. In this case a new travel contract will be established with the changes. In the event of a price decrease, the overpayment will be repaid before the date of departure.
The Customer must communicate its decision (acceptance of the modification or termination) within a maximum of 7 days from receipt of the aforementioned information. If no response is received within this period, the Customer will be deemed to have accepted the proposed change.
8.2.2. Modification after departure
When, after departure, ESCAPADES FUTEES is forced to make a change in the services included in the tourist service, ESCAPADES FUTEES will make its best efforts to replace them with equivalent services.
8.2.3. Modification in case of major force
Unpredictable, external and insurmountable incidents or events can occur during the journey such as strikes, technical incidents, weather, delays, breakdowns. The delay or delays resulting from a case of force majeure as defined by law, or by a third party, and the consequent change in itinerary may not result in any compensation whatsoever, in particular because of the change in the duration of the originally planned programme or the delay. Any additional costs (tax, hotel, parking, etc.) related to a disturbance will remain with the Customer.
ESCAPADES FUTEES reserves the right, if circumstances require, to modify the itineraries or certain benefits of the program. As a result, the conditions of benefits may also be changed.
In any case, ESCAPADES FUTEES cannot be held liable for any non-performance due to bad weather or any other case of force majeure, or due to a breach of safety rules by the Customer.
9.1. Cancellation at the customer’s initiative
The existence of numerous intermediaries (Tourist Sites etc.) and settlement periods imposed by them on ESCAPADES FUTEES justifies the collection of withholding fees all the more important since the departure date is close. If the Customer is obliged to cancel the service ordered, he must inform ESCAPADES FUTEES IMMEDIATELY by any means to ensure receipt of the cancellation. The date of receipt will be used as the cancellation date.
The holdback fee is as follows:
From 45 days to 30 days before the benefit: 0%
From 30 days to 15 days before the benefit: 50%
From 15 days to the hour H before the benefit: 100%
In case of interruption during the journey, no refund can be requested from ESCAPADES FUTEES.
When several Customers have registered on the same Order and one of them cancels his trip, the cancellation fee is deducted from the general amount of the advance payments or the balance, regardless of the author of the payment.
No refund may be made if the Customer does not show up at the times and places mentioned by his notice, program or Order or if the information entered at the time of his registration does not correspond to his identity documents.
9.2. Cancellation at the initiative of ESCAPADES FUTEES
ESCAPADES FUTEES may be required to cancel a performance. In such a case, in accordance with article R 211-10 of the Tourism Code, ESCAPADES FUTEES will inform the Customer who will be reimbursed, without penalties, of all the sums he may have paid.
However, if such cancellation is imposed by force majeure or by a third party or by a risk to the safety of the Customer, the Customer may not claim any compensation. ESCAPADES FUTEES is not liable when the cancellation is imposed, in particular in the following cases :
when the overall number of participants is insufficient, not allowing the establishment of a sufficient team to ensure the smooth running of the service. This cancellation cannot occur less than 10 days before the date of the start of the stay;
in case of force majeure;
when the safety of passengers is threatened;
in case of adverse weather conditions.
9.3. Costs external to the service
Any costs outside the contracted service incurred by the Customer, for any reason whatsoever, ESCAPADES FUTEES cannot be held responsible.
10. ASSIGNMENT OF THE CONTRACT
The Customer may assign the contract to a person who fulfils the same conditions as him to carry out the trip (will not be considered to meet the same conditions especially of persons with certain medical contraindications, etc.).
The Transferor Customer must notify ESCAPADES FUTEES, by any means that can be acknowledged, within a period of at least seven (7) days before the date of departure.
No termination of contract may be effected within 24 hours of the service.
The assignment of a contract for a service may result in a fee that will be charged by ESCAPADES FUTEES to the transferring Customer (in the case of an adult taking the place of a minor).
The Customer will also remain jointly and severally liable for all additional costs incurred as a result of this transfer.
11. PRICE OF THE SERVICES
The rates are established on the basis of the economic conditions in force 75 days before the date of opening of the listings, or at the time of sending the quotation, and in particular:
land transport costs;
legal or regulatory fees;
and with a hypothesis of inflation rate of operating costs in France, up for the current year (year N), by the same percentage as that recorded over 12 months of end-January of the year (N-2) at end-January of the year (N-1), concerning the national retail price index published by INSEE.
No disputes regarding rates can be accepted after registration to a service offered by ESCAPADES FUTEES. The prices given are indivisible and any waiver of services included in the package or any interruption of travel by the Customer (even in the case of hospitalization or early repatriation) may not give rise to a refund.
In accordance with Article L. 211-12 of the Tourist Code, ESCAPADES FUTEES can modify the price of the Order in certain hypotheses. In this way, the Customer accepts that the price can be changed in the event of a change in the cost of transport, in particular linked to the cost of fuels.

ESCAPADES FUTEES will provide the Customer, upon request, with a statement justifying the cost increases experienced by ESCAPADES FUTEES.
Any refusal on the part of the Customers to pay the new price will be considered a cancellation on the part of the Customers for which the provisions of article 9 "CANCELLATION" will be applied.
In case of increase of more than 25% of the total price, the Customer will have the possibility to cancel his registration without cancellation fee within 7 days from the date of sending of the email by ESCAPADES FUTEES notifying him of the increase.
