Geographic Area of the Offer
Come To Paris sells its products online to a global clientele. The terms and conditions are valid in most countries. Thus, no complaint can be lodged with Come To Paris in the event of a postal delay in delivering the vouchers or coupons to the client.
Modification or Cancellation by the Provider
Come To Paris will do everything possible to ensure that its clients have a smooth trip but it cannot be held liable for acts of God, cases of force majeure or third party actions (particularly strikes). However, even in these cases, Come To Paris will do everything in its power to resolve any situations that may arise.
If, before departure, an essential element of the contract is modified for the trip, the client may, within 7 days after having been notified:
The client may not request any indemnity if the trip is cancelled due to a case of force majeure that could jeopardize the safety of the travelers. Moreover, Come To Paris should not be confused with its provider, who have their own general conditions in effect with their clients and who are liable for their own activity as per their by-laws, the national legislation or international agreements establishing, among other provisions, limited liability. Come To Paris may not be held liable for breaches by its providers who may cancel or modify a service for technical reasons.
Come To Paris also refuses any liability in the case where the services provided by Come To Paris are not insured by the providers for cases of force majeure. To give an example, if there are high waters along the Seine, river cruises may be cancelled. These damages are generally compensated but not contractually.
The Come To Paris clients release Come To Paris from any liability in the case of their violation of French or European law and agree to respect the internal rules and regulations of the hotels and providers in general.
Modification or Cancellation by the Client
In case of cancellation, the client must inform Come To Paris by registered letter with return receipt requested. The date the letter is received will determine the date of cancellation and the amount of the cancellation expenses:
In no case may penalty amounts be applied to another service. Any trip that has begun is considered having been used by the client and cannot be reimbursed. Any service for which the client is a no show cannot be reimbursed if the client did not show up on the day and time and at the place indicated.
Any changes, as possible, will be allowed for a €15 administrative fee per pax as well as any price increase that may apply. If the client has any special requests, he must fill out the part of the form entitled “Your Comments”. Come To Paris does not guarantee that these supplement services can be fulfilled. A reservation cannot be cancelled or modified for this reason.
For special dates (December 24 and 31, February 14, July 14 and any other special date indicated), any change or cancellation made less than 30 days before the date of service will result in the service being charged in full. No reimbursement may be requested from Come To Paris.
Come To Paris will attempt to provide the most exact information possible about its products offered as well as the descriptions of the neighborhoods and public places. Come To Paris invites you to share your comments if you find any errors, writing to: [email protected].
The illustrations for the services offered on the site are only indicative and can be changed (particularly the menus). Likewise, the features cited are subject to change. This cannot justify a complaint or a reduction in price. The photographs illustrating the products are not contractually binding. If there are any errors, Come To Paris is in no way liable. The designs, images, texts and descriptions are and remain the property of Come To Paris and cannot be used by third parties for any reason. Nevertheless, certain images are free from fees and the source is clearly indicated when possible.

Nevertheless Come To Paris does not guarantee that the functions, contents or information on the site will not be interrupted or free from errors, that issues will be corrected or that the site or services guaranteeing its availability will be without viruses or bugs.
Come To Paris will do its best to serve its clients. Nevertheless, the services proposed by Come To Paris are subject to its providers’ availability. No request or indemnity can be claimed by a client in the case where the service selected is no longer available. Come To Paris is in no way bound to provide the services proposed. When the services selected by the client are not available, Come To Paris will work to provide a solution similar to the request made.
It may occur that our suppliers or service providers modify the itinerary dates, prices, services included, age restrictions, etc. Subsequently, Come To Paris reserves the right to cancel, modify or replace any service, itinerary, ticket or product that a client has reserved on the site at any time and for whatever reason.
In this case, if the new choice offered does not suit the client, he will have the right to obtain a full reimbursement of the initial purchase price except for the services reserved on special dates for which Come To Paris may not be aware of the rate(s) of its providers when they are put online.
Despite the above, when Come To Paris is informed by its suppliers or service providers about a significant change in a reservation or itinerary, product or event in advance, he will use any reasonable means to inform his clients in order to modify the reservation when possible.
Preparation of Orders
For orders made with Come To Paris, we ask clients to fill out the forms where the required fields are marked. No order can be made without this information. We recommend using these forms and the names included in our publications. If a reservation error occurs due to the client’s mistake, we will not be held liable. Finally, the automatic Come To Paris registration systems are considered as valid proof of the nature of the contract and its date.
Acceptance of the Orders
Come To Paris is only bound by an order after it is confirmed by email. Cases of force majeure may make it impossible for Come To Paris to fulfill its order processing commitments. No complaint may be made in this regard. Come To Paris reserves the right to not follow up on certain orders. In this case and when possible, Come To Paris will inform the person having placed the order by email.
Timeframe - Delays
In order to serve its clients as best as possible, Come To Paris agrees to answer all questions within two business days starting from the order confirmation. Nevertheless, this term is not contractually binding and cannot be the object of any complaint. If the client does not receive its services before he arrives in Paris, he will have the option to contact the Parisian offices of Come To Pairs during business days and time to receive a copy of his coupons or vouchers pending confirmation of his identity. The delivery times indicated in the order publications or confirmations are given in good faith but are not binding. Any late fee is excluded. Sending coupons by email will be done in good faith. If the buyer does not take delivery of the services or vouchers on the date of availability, the services will not be reimbursed (NO SHOW).
Driving and traffic jams in Paris can result in delays, particularly for private vehicles. In this case, the client will be solely responsible for any consequences and must ensure that the travel time to check-in for his flight and train as indicated by the company is sufficient. In any case, Come To Paris will not be liable for costs incurred due to delayed flights or a transfer. No indemnity may be required by Come To Paris in these cases.
Come To Paris cannot be held liable for losses or damages (whether these losses or damages could have been predicted or are foreseeable, known or other): (a) loss of data; (b) loss of revenue or advanced benefits; (c) loss of business; (d) loss of opportunity; (e) loss of intangible assets or reputation; (f) loss suffered by third parties or (g) any indirect, consecutive, special or exemplary damages arising from the use of the site in any form.
Come To Paris, by ensuring the reservations of services, hotels, itineraries, transportation or any other service related to the individual client’s itineraries, cannot be held liable for injuries, damages, losses, accidents, delays or irregularities, debts or expenses for people or property following any breach by the supplier, hotel, transporter or other company or person ensuring the services included.
Moreover, Come To Paris and its providers cannot be held liable for illness, theft, labor conflicts, breakdowns, governmental restrictions, acts of war or terrorism, weather conditions, lacks of means of transportation, misadventures or accidents or any other reason beyond their control.
In no case may Come To Paris be held liable for damages, losses or disputes of any kind following the use of this site.

The same holds true for any cancellation of the hotel room or flight, strikes and governmental restrictions that are beyond the control of Come To Paris. Finally, Come To Paris will not be liable for any personal expenses not set forth in the contract for delays or government decisions of any kind.
If one of these conditions proves to be illegal, invalid or inapplicable based on the laws of any State or country in which these conditions must be effective, within the measure of the legal system under which this condition is illegal, invalid or inapplicable, it will be deleted from these general conditions and the remaining conditions will be maintained, remain applicable and will continue to be fully effective.
