Every passenger must have a valid passage ticket to travel on the Social Ferries, issued by the Social Ticket Offices or authorized points of sale. The ticket must be shown to the boarding personnel along with the "passenger's copy" and the "reservation voucher - valid for boarding." The ticket is personal and cannot be transferred to others; it must be kept for the entire duration of the journey and presented upon any request by the onboard staff or officials of the Companies responsible for inspection. Passengers found without a ticket or with a non-compliant ticket (for time and date of the journey, type, passenger, or applied fare) will be required to pay the full amount of the above ticket. The passenger ticket is valid for the deck passage; it does not guarantee a seat.
ART.2 TICKET VALIDITY
Passenger tickets are valid only for the indicated journey; non-utilization does not entitle to any refund. The reservation can be changed once, at least 24 hours before departure. Customers are responsible for checking the accuracy of the ticket issued at the time of purchase. No complaints regarding the correspondence of purchased travel tickets will be accepted after departure.
ART.3 CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS
Tickets issued are refundable under the following conditions:
Ticket cancellation within 15 minutes of issuance. The refund will be total without any penalty.

Ticket cancellation two days before the departure date. A penalty of 25% of the ticket will be applied.
Ticket cancellation three days before the departure date. The refund will be total without any penalty.
Special rate tickets are non-refundable unless the journey is not carried out, and they cannot be modified for other connections either. Group rate tickets cannot be partially refunded. Only if the journey for which the ticket was issued is not performed, it will be possible to request a full refund of the ticket. In case of non-performance of the service due to the shipping company's fault, the passenger who intends to use the ticket on the same route within seven days after the service is canceled must first go to the ticket office to allow the issuance of a new ticket. This will be done without applying any surcharge. In the same cases, the passenger who intends to obtain a refund of the price must submit a written request accompanied by the original ticket, complete in every part, to the ticket office within the same seven-day period mentioned above. The shipping company undertakes to refund the ticket price within 15 working days from the date of the request.

The Company is not responsible for damages resulting from the non-performance and/or incorrect execution of the transport in the event that the event is due to unforeseeable circumstances, force majeure, adverse weather and sea conditions, strikes, and technical failures constituting force majeure and/or other causes not attributable to the carrier. In the presence of events that may compromise the safety of the ship and/or passengers, the ship's Captain has the authority to modify the itinerary and/or cancel or delay the departure. Crossing times are indicative and calculated based on the distance between ports in favorable weather and sea conditions. The Company cannot be held responsible for delays due to port operations.

If the passenger interrupts the journey due to their own fault, the Company is not legally obliged to grant any refund of any booking fees paid by the customer for the purchase of advance travel tickets.
ART.7 LOSS OR THEFT OF THE TICKET
Duplicates will not be issued for lost or stolen tickets.

The departure times of the company's ships, as well as their itineraries, may be subject to changes, even without notice, for technical reasons not attributable to the Company, force majeure, justified reasons, and/or events that may compromise the safety of the ship and/or passengers, as well as due to port traffic or restrictions imposed by competent Authorities and Bodies.
ART.11 SHIP IMPEDIMENTS - CANCELLATION OF DEPARTURE OR CHANGE OF ITINERARY - INTERRUPTION OF SHIP TRAVEL

If the Company, for reasons not attributable to it, cancels the ship's departure, and if the passenger does not wish to take advantage of the opportunity to travel on another Company's ship departing later, the contract is terminated, and the Company will only be required to refund the amount paid. Likewise, the passenger may request the termination of the contract if the Company changes the ship's itinerary to their detriment. If the Company cancels the departure or changes the ship's itinerary for justified reasons, the compensation for any damages suffered by the passenger, if due, cannot exceed double the net passage price. If the ship's voyage is interrupted due to force majeure or other causes not attributable to the Company, the passage price is due in proportion to the portion of the journey effectively traveled; however, the Company is entitled to the entire price if, within a reasonable time and at its own expense, it arranges for the passenger to continue the journey.

ART.14 BOARDING OF DISABLED PASSENGERS AND THOSE WITH REDUCED MOBILITY

Reservations and tickets are offered to PRMs under the same conditions as all other passengers, subject to the provisions of EU Regulation No. 1177/2010. If boarding is denied to PRMs for safety reasons or due to ship design or infrastructure impossibility, they can choose between the right to a refund and alternative transport. PRMs should inform, in writing, at the time of booking or advance ticket purchase, of their specific needs for accommodation, seating, requested services, or the need to transport medical devices. For any other type of assistance, PRMs must notify the Carrier or terminal operator at least forty-eight hours in advance and appear at a designated location at the agreed-upon time, in advance of the published boarding time.
