23. LIABILITY OF VINTAGE RIDES

IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO THE VINTAGE RIDERS TO PERSONALLY TAKE OUT AN INSURANCE ADDITIONAL TO THOSE TAKEN OUT BY VINTAGE RIDES, IN ORDER TO COVER DAMAGES CAUSED TO THE VINTAGE RIDER AND/OR THIRD-PARTIES.

Disclaimer
In accordance with the provisions of Article L.211-16 of the Tourism Code, Vintage Rides can:
“… be exempted from all or part of its liability by proving that non-execution or poor execution of the contract is attributable either to the buyer or to the act, unforeseeable and irresistible, of a third party unfamiliar to the provision of the services envisaged in the contract, or to an event of force majeure.”

L.121-19-4)
