Our Site is a virtual platform for activities supplied by third party activity suppliers (each an “Activity Supplier” and “Activity”, respectively).
We act as an intermediary platform so you can search for and find an activity and activity supplier of your choice and make the booking. Curioseety only acts as a platform, facilitating the connection and interaction between you and the activity supplier and providing its assistance and help in booking the selected activity. The contract in respect to any activity is between yourself and the activity supplier, hence We are not a party to such contract. We have no responsability to you or to either party in respect of the terms of the relationship between you and the activity supplier.
By accepting these conditions, you totally agree to comply with our Terms. To become a CuriosGuide (Activity Supplier registered with our Site) you must be a certified professional tour guide and you must have, when applicable, a licence issued by the Italian local authorities. You warrant that all the informations you provide are true and correct. You are responsible for creating and updating your own personal page in which you publish and amend your personal tours, highlights and details. You will be contacted by the Site users/travellers with whom you will exchange messages in order to facilitate their planning. We will uphold a 10% commission at the booking while the user will be responsible for paying the remaining 90% to you at the end of the tour. We suggest you arrange ex-ante the method and currency to be used for the transaction. In any case, Your Membership may be terminated without warning and you may be barred from any future use of the Website and/or the Service if you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, including but not limited to misrepresenting your license, or if Curioseety has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete. We can also teminate your account if we consider that you do not cure and operate your page according to the standard of our website.
Curioseety assumes no responsibility for incorrect information collected from any of the tour guides registered on curioseety.com, any delay, changes in his/her schedule, strikes, injury, weather, fire, theft, quarantine, medical or customs regulations and similar act or incident beyond its ability to control. We are not responsible for any arrangements made between you and the tour guide in the country you visit.
Pricing is set by the tour guides directly and not by the site. Curioseety is a free open marketplace. The tour guide can chose a base currency of payment as EUR or USD. The tour guide has an option to receive the due cash payment in the local currency rate on the day of the tour only if all parties agree. Otherwise the currency and amount outlined on the confirmation of booking is the legal amount due. The User is liable to pay the amount correct at the time of booking.
The deposit of approximately 10% of the total cost of the tour, is payable to our Site on booking. This deposit is fully refundable to the booker only if the tour guide does not show on the tour day and time. For any other reasons the "deposit" is non-refundable to the booker. The guide is also rensponsible for issuing the invoice to the final client as far as its 90% is concerned.
The booker is responsible for paying the balance of the tour cost directly to the tour guide on the day of the tour.
Not all Activity Suppliers will accept changes once they have received and confirmed your bookings. It may be possible to change your booking but this will be at the sole discretion of the Activity Supplier. All change requests should be referred to the Activity Supplier directly via the contact details provided by the Activity Supplier on the respective Activity information page.
If an activity is cancelled by the Activity Supplier you shall be entitled to a full refund of the Activity fee paid (10 % of the total).
