GoEuro (“we”) offers a publicly accessible Internet-based platform which is operated in different languages and via websites with various country specific domains on the internet (e.g. www.goeuro.de, www.goeuro.com, www.goeuro.at or www.goeuro.co.uk) and on mobile apps. The operator and responsible entity in terms of the data protection legislation is GoEuro Corp., registered in Delaware, USA, under No 4973690. GoEur Corp. has its operative headquarters in Berlin.
Our service is the identification, comparison and intermediation of transportation, accommodation and related services, e.g., tickets for flights, train rides, bus tours and car rentals, etc. In addition, we offer a direct ticket booking service through our website and mobile apps for selected ticket types and operators.
GoEuro is independent. We do not provide transportation, travel or logistics services, we do not own or control any travel or tour operators, and we are not controlled by any provider of individual travel products.
These terms and conditions apply for the use of our websites and apps and solely govern our own service: The identification of travel options by means of our search engine and the intermediation to third-party booking sites. And also our service when we offer you direct booking on our website (for selected ticket types and operators).
Our terms and conditions do, however, not apply to the conditions under which the mediated transports or travels are carried out, therefore the terms and conditions of the relevant travel provider or operator apply. Our terms and conditions also do not apply to the conditions under which you book the tickets on a third-party booking site, even if we have referred you to this site. In this case, the respective terms and conditions of the provider of such booking sites do apply.
The Service is intended to provide you with all the necessary information to help you plan your trips to and within Europe better and simpler and also help you to compare the travel options.
1. Search engine + comparison platform for travel optionsGoEuro shows you various travel options, which we identify for you, based on your preferences and needs.GoEuro aggregates and displays available travel options across multiple modes of travel (plane, train, bus and rental car) between the majority of cities in Europe in a simple and easy way. We arrange the results of your query by means of travel time and cost without any claim to completeness or accuracy. You then have the opportunity to compare these travel options upon duration, prices or other aspects. The list of the results of the query and its respective display or order does not endorse or even advertise for any travel option or a specific provider.
2. Booking via third-party servicesOn the result pages we offer a direct link to forward you to the booking pages of the respective providers. On their booking sites you can buy the appropriate tickets and make reservations.
The contract for the booked travel products (bookings and reservations) will solely be concluded between you and the relevant provider. Only the terms and conditions of the respective provider apply. Payment for such travel products will then processed solely by the provider via their respective payment system. Cancellations or change requests for such bookings must be conducted directly with those third-party providers.
3. Booking with GoEuro
For selected travel service providers and certain listings, we offer secure online booking options on our service sites. In these cases, you will not be forwarded to a third-party booking page. If you make a booking via our GoEuro booking page, this booking will be processed by the GoEuro Travel GmbH, a subsidiary of GoEuro Corp. with headquarters in Berlin (Schönhauser Allee 180, 10119 Berlin). Unless you are booking routes by French providers with us, in which case the bookings will be processed by GoEuro Voyages SAS (6 rue Legraverand, 75012 Paris). The GoEuro Voyages SAS is a subsidiary of GoEuro Travel GmbH. The terms "GoEuro" and "we" in respect to these terms and conditions refer therefore also to GoEuro Travel GmbH and GoEuro Voyages SAS.
We will ask you for the name and email address of the traveler and your payment details (handled by an external payment service provider). We will then transmit the received booking details and your payment to the relevant travel provider. Such ticket sales are carried out by us in the name and on behalf of the relevant travel provider.
By clicking the button "Book now" located on the bottom of our booking sites, you offer us to enter into a contract for the mediation of the respective transport and travel. The contract with GoEuro is deemed concluded, if you receive the booking confirmation by e-mail. You will receive, along with an invoice, all necessary travel documents with the e-mail confirmation. Usually, these are printable tickets of each travel provider as a PDF file or in another standard electronic format (i.e. mobile tickets with QR codes). In some cases and for certain connections, you will receive a booking code or ticket voucher, which you must redeem at the station (at a vending counter or a ticket vending machine) before departure.
We ask you to check the information on your travel documents immediately upon receipt. Any incorrect information should be reported to us immediately in order to allow correction of the documents. The operator for trips booked with us, is the respective third party operator (i.e. railway company, Airline). GoEuro may charge an additional booking fee for its services, in which case you will be notified before you complete the booking. The booking fee is non-refundable. There may be additional fees charged by the respective travel provider.

By booking with a credit card, you express your authorization for our selected Payment Service Provider's to collect the respective travel price including the specified service charge via this credit card on behalf of the third party operator.

Cancellation and withdrawal must be declared towards the relevant third-party provider. In case you declare the cancellation or withdrawal towards GoEuro, a transfer of the cancellation to the relevant third-party can be provided only if this cancellation is expressed in writing (via email, fax or letter) and includes the relevant booking or reservation number.

Some functions and features which are already represented in these Terms and Conditions, may not yet covered by our service or will be introduced gradually by us. This also means that we change the service, websites and mobile apps and continually improve and therefore, can not guarantee for a 100% stability of the website and the mobile apps. Under certain circumstances, it may sometimes even come to overloads in the operation of the services or misrepresentations of the content.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions prove to be wholly or partially invalid or unenforceable, the validity of the remaining provisions or our contract with the user is not affected. Instead of the invalid Terms or Conditions a valid provision shall be replaced, that most closely approximates the economic purpose of the invalid provision. This also applies to the case of a loophole.
German law applies in respect of all legal disputes arising in connection with the user agreement, under exclusion of the UN Sales Convention – Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). Mandatory provisions of laws of the place where the customer has their habitual residence remain unaffected.
