Except on the Valencia <> Mostaganem line, for which they must arrive 4 hours before the vessel's departure time. If you do not have boarding passes beforehand, within these limits, the Company reserves the right to freely dispose of the place assigned to the passenger or vehicle.

 

2.2. This ticket is personal and not transferable. The license plate of the vehicle to be transported must be the one that appears on the ticket. Passengers without a vehicle on board have the right to transport luggage for a single trip and may transport their baggage from the Maritime Station to their accommodation on board the vessel. If you have more luggage, you must contact a transport company, a service which we offer on our website. If you fail to meet these requirements, you may be denied boarding and you will not receive a refund.

2.7. Timetables and routes may vary due to malfunctions, unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure. In these cases, the company will adopt measures under its control to notify affected passengers of these changes. In case of necessity due to the above causes, the carrier can find another carrier or use other vessels.

telephone number, fax number and your email address), of your decision to the withdraw from the contract through a clear statement (for
example, in a letter sent by post, fax or email).

Consequences of withdrawal:
If you choose to withdraw from the contract, the company will refund all the transport payments received from the passenger, including delivery charges (except for
additional expenses resulting from your choice of a delivery mode different from the least expensive ordinary mode of delivery that we offer) without
