Online booking terms and conditions (B2B and B2C)
This booking agreement template is designed to be used in connection with a web-based booking facility for courses, workshops or similar events, where the person or company operating the booking facility is the same person or company that will contract to arrange the event in question for the customer. The document may be used in relation to bookings made by both consumers and businesses.
Special terms have been included in the document, allowing the supplier to vary certain matters relating to a booking - for example, the exact time at which a booked event will take place. In addition, customers may be permitted to cancel a booking by giving written notice of cancellation. The reasonableness of any given notice period and the amount of any given deduction will vary from case to case.
A clause has been included to help the supplier comply with some of the requirements of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013. This clause will only apply to B2C contracts made under the document, and not to B2B contracts.
In accordance with standard warranty terms implied by English law, the supplier undertakes to provide the booked services with reasonable care and skill.
A fairly standard set of limitations of liability is incorporated into the document. These may protect the supplier against claims for losses arising out of events beyond the control of the supplier, business-related losses and consequential or indirect losses. In addition, the supplier's liability may be capped.
A force majeure clause protects the supplier in the case that an event beyond the supplier's control leads to a failure or delay in contractual performance. This protection may be qualified by express requirements that the supplier keep the customer notified of such events and take reasonable steps to mitigate any effects such events may have.
An optional indemnity contained in the template provides that, if the customer breaches any provision of the agreement, the supplier may recover resulting losses on an indemnity basis - a more generous measure than standard contractual damages.
Note that, unless adapted as appropriate, the agreement should not be used in relation to services that are subject to special regulation - for example, air transport or package holidays - or give rise to special risks.Ask about this document
