London Party Boats Ltd. Ticket Cruise Booking Information, Terms & Conditions
Please read this document in full. The information within this document relates to all tickets for ticket cruises on the river Thames and connected docks and waterways marketed by London party boats Ltd., operated by London party boats Ltd. and sold by London party boats Ltd. on behalf of other operators.
In purchasing tickets for cruises, from London party boats Ltd, you (‘the client') are accepting the terms and conditions within this document. Any ticket/reservation holder or passenger will be referred to as ‘the client' from here on. This document supersedes any and all previous versions and may only be altered upon the written agreement of both ‘the client' and a Director of ‘London party boats Ltd.'
All Tickets are sold subject to availability and to these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions should be read carefully prior to purchase and any queries relating to them should be raised with Us prior to purchase, as purchase of Ticket(s) constitutes agreement of these Terms and Conditions. A valid Ticket must be produced to get into an Event. Please notify Us of any access requirements at the time of booking. Removing any part of, altering or defacing the Ticket may invalidate Your Ticket.
1.1 All bookings must be made in advance of the date of the cruise. To board the vessel the client must have a confirmed reservation /ticket which is valid for the date and package booked. It is Your responsibility to check Your Ticket(s) as mistakes cannot always be rectified after purchase. Please check your Ticket(s) on receipt carefully and contact us immediately if there is a mistake.
1.2 We will not be responsible for any Ticket that is lost, stolen or destroyed. The Management only accept responsibility for Tickets bought from one of its own managed sales points. Any queries regarding Tickets purchased from ticket Agents must be directed back to the relevant Agent.
1.3 It is not always possible to issue duplicate ticket(s). For example, for non-seated events where there is a possibility of both the original and duplicate ticket(s) being used, compromising the licensed capacity of the venue. Duplicates may therefore be issued at the discretion of the Promoter or the Venue acting reasonably. If an e Ticket is reissued only the most recent version will be valid, previous tickets will be void and entry to the venue may not be permitted.
1.4 We and the Event Partner(s) reserve the right to provide alternative tickets at an Event to those specified on the Ticket if the staging of the Event reasonably requires, provided they are of no less value to that stated on the Ticket.
1.5 Where a concession is claimed, proof of identity and concession entitlement (for example of age or student status) may be required.
1.6 Possession of a Ticket does not confer any rights (by implication or otherwise) on You to use, alter, copy or otherwise deal with any of the symbols, trade marks, logos and/or intellectual property appearing on the Ticket.
1.7 Any Ticket cannot be used for advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes, unless formal written permission is given by the Event Partner(s), provided that even if such consent is obtained, use of Our trade marks and other intellectual property is subject to Our prior consent.
1.8 You agree not to obtain or attempt to obtain any Ticket(s) through unauthorised use of any robot, spider or other automated device or any other illegal or unauthorised activity. We reserve the right to cancel any Ticket transaction which We reasonably suspect to have been made in breach of these provisions without any notice to You and any and all Ticket(s) purchased as part of such transaction will be void.
2. PRICE AND PAYMENT
2.1 Full payment in cleared funds must be received by London party boats Ltd. in advance of the date of the ticket cruise. Payment is required in full at time of booking to secure your space on the boat. The price of the Ticket shall be the price set at the time We accept Your order. All advertised prices are inclusive of any applicable taxes and per Ticket booking fee (where applicable) but exclusive of any per transaction, or delivery fee. If booking with a credit or debit card that the client does not have the legal right to use the booking will be invalid.
2.2 No order will be accepted until We have received full payment in cleared funds. We reserve the right to cancel any booking which We reasonably suspect to have been made fraudulently.

This will apply regardless of whether because of human error or a transactional malfunction of this website or other London party boats operated system.
3.1 Your Tickets will be delivered as an e Ticket to the email address provided when You registered on the Site. Your e Ticket must be printed or presented on a mobile or tablet device.
