General terms and conditions of tab ticketbroker GmbH

The range of services available from tab ticketbroker GmbH on this website www.oktoberfest-tischreservionen.de is not aimed at customers with a place of residence, place of business or delivery address in France.

I. Object of Service

(1) tab ticketbroker GmbH (hereinafter “we”, “us” or “tab ticketbroker”) sells table reservations for the Munich Oktoberfest. As we are an independent supplier, these are not provided to us by the beer hall operators themselves, but by suppliers who have received such reservations from the beer hall operators. A table reservation usually includes the reservation confirmation issued by the beer hall operator, the number of reserved tables and seats, the time and date are included, as well as other necessary documents, in particular meal vouchers and admission wristbands or stamps (hereinafter "reservation").

(2) On one hand, since the reservations are not made by the beer hall operators until a certain point in time before the event, and on the other hand because we have been active in the market for many years, we have a wealth of experience as to which contingents are offered to us by the holders of such reservations in the further course, In some cases, we already start selling the reservations before we have bought them ourselves.

(3) Until we hold the reservations, we therefore undertake to procure the ordered reservations for the event predetermined by time and place according to your selection, but wo do not necessarily have them in hand. This means that upon conclusion of the contract, you acquire the right to have tab ticketbroker procure the reservation you have selected for a specific event, even though we may not yet have the reservation for the event you have selected. The right you have acquired is thus binding on us, but can only be fulfilled by us if the reservations ordered are offered to us by the holders of such reservations. Below we also name the right you acquired through the conclusion of the contract (so-called "option" or "option right"). We will notify you as soon as we receive the reservation that is the subject of the option you have purchased. If the ordered reservations cannot be delivered, you are entitled to the rights under Sections VII and VIII of these General Terms and Conditions, in particular to a refund of the price paid and to compensation for damages under the conditions specified there.

(4) You can of course also purchase reservations directly from the tent operator.

II. Scope

(1) Our General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter “GTC”) apply to the purchase of reservations or options for obtaining reservations specified by time and place for attending the event you have selected for the Munich Oktoberfest.

(2) Any and all of our customers’ general terms and conditions are hereby explicitly rejected.

(3) Irrespective of the validity of our general terms and conditions, we would like to point out that the reservations/events at the Munich Oktoberfest may also be subject to the beer hall operator's own general terms and conditions. These differ according to the respective beer hall operator for whose event you are purchasing a reservation or option. It is therefore recommended that you familiarize yourself with the general terms and conditions of the respective beer hall operator for whose event you are making a reservation. This applies in particular in the event that the beer hall operator cancels a reservation due to the fault of the customer, e.g. due to late arrival, or does not grant the customer access to the tent and the reserved table due to a prohibition on resale contained in his general terms and conditions. In this context, we would like to point out that the effectiveness of the prohibition on resale in the general terms and conditions of the beer hall operator is legally disputed and these prohibitions on resale are sometimes the subject of court proceedings. In its judgment of October 8th, 2021 on Az. 3 HK O 5593/20, the Munich I Regional Court declared the resale of table reservations for the Oktoberfest tent “Ochsenbraterei” on the Internet to be illegal. The verdict was not made against tab ticketbroker (Oktoberfest-Tischreservionen.de) and is not yet legally binding. We are currently examining what conclusions can be drawn from this decision and, as a precautionary measure, point out that the resale of reservations by other beer hall operators may also be considered illegal. We will do our best to avoid any inconvenience caused to you as far as we can and will keep you informed.

III. Conclusion of Contract

(1) The reservations or options for the Munich Oktoberfest offered on our website are non-binding and merely represent an invitation to submit an offer to conclude a contract.

(2) You make a binding offer to conclude a contract by first filling the shopping cart with the reservation or option you have selected and then sending it to us by clicking on the "Order with obligation to pay" button.

(3) Before submitting your offer, you can view your shopping cart at any time by clicking the "Shopping Cart" button and, if necessary, remove products from the shopping cart again by clicking the delete symbol "X" or cancel the ordering process.

(4) After submitting your offer, you will immediately receive a confirmation email confirming receipt of your order. A binding contract for the reservation or option is only concluded when you receive a second confirmation e-mail confirming the conclusion of the contract by us. This usually happens within 24 hours after the confirmation of the receipt of the order. With the e-mail confirming the conclusion of the contract, you will receive the contract provisions with information on the reservations or options you have ordered, including these General Terms and Conditions, as well as the invoice and information on the type and method of payment. We do not store the contractual provisions. The contract is also concluded when this is confirmed by us by e-mail or telephone.

(%) Customers blocked by us are not entitled to place orders with us or through third parties. In this case, the booking will be canceled by tab ticketbroker GmbH.

(3) We reserve the right to make different payment arrangements for orders for reservations or options that are made less than 14 days before the day of the event (so-called "last-minute reservations") immediately before the day of the event. We will give you details on this in the confirmation email.

With the agreement of the option right, we assign to you all rights resulting from the future reservation to be granted in the event of purchase and you accept this assignment, which is conditional on the transmission of the reservation by us.

(2) Since the reservations are sometimes only sent out by the beer hall operators shortly before the day of the event, we can only forward them to you once received. We deliver the reservations at the delivery time stated in the offer on our website, at the latest two (2) days before the planned day of the event, but not before payment of the price.

(3) In case of last minute offers, we reserve the right to agree upon a deviating payment and delivery procedure with the customer, taking into account the individually remaining time until the event. tab ticketbroker nevertheless guarantees timely delivery of the reservation before the booked event also in case of last minute purchases.

(5) If it is foreseeable in the short term that no reservations will be available for the event you have selected in the category you have selected, we will send you equivalent or better reservations instead of the reservations covered by the original option, provided that the booked time and Number of people match and such reservations are available. You can accept or reject our corresponding offer at your own discretion.

(6) If we are unable to offer the originally selected or equivalent or better reservations, we must inform you of this immediately, i.e. without culpable delay after becoming aware of the non-deliverability.

VII. Termination

(1) You may terminate the contract if we do not succeed in delivering either the reservation being the subject of the option acquired by you nor an equivalent nor better reservation until two days preceding the booked event.

(2) The withdrawal is to be made without further delay after knowledge of the reasons justifying the withdrawal by notification by telephone (+49 (0) 30 89 75 36 43) or by email (keyaccount@tab-ticketbroker.de) to us and to the address tab -ticketbroker GmbH, Gustav-Meyer-Allee 25, Building 12/1, 13355 Berlin.

VIII. Liability

(1) If tab ticketbroker cannot deliver the reservations, which may have been booked via an option right, up to two (2) days before the start of the event, you are entitled to claim damages in addition to the price to be refunded by us.

(2) The above limitation of liability does not apply in cases of injury to life, limb or health. Furthermore, the limitation of liability does not apply when it comes to the violation of such obligations, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on the fulfillment of which you can regularly rely.
