1. The following terms of business apply to all journeys Majestic-Train GmbH organises and undertakes and to all other services (organisation of events, etc.) offered in connection with these journeys. Any deviations from these terms are only legally valid and binding if they have been confirmed in writing by Majestic Imperator's managing director. Terms which have been sent to Majestic-Train GmbH and differ from the company's terms of business, or any oral agreements not confirmed in writing, are not legally valid or binding. 

2. All offers, contracts, confirmations, preparations, and the necessary supervision to guarantee a perfect train, ride as well as all the invoicing will be handled at Majestic Imperator's head office in Vienna. 

3. All offers, when accepted by a client, only become valid after written confirmation by Majestic Imperator's managing director. 

4. As far as possible, Majestic-Train GmbH uses historical carriages for all journeys; given the extensive maintenance required for such carriages, it may happen that one or the other carriage is not available on request. Therefore MajesticTrain GmbH reserves the right - before or even during a journey - for technical reasons to exchange these carriages for others, which may be newer or offer a different design from the originally selected one, without clients being able to set up a legal claim. The same conditions apply to historical locomotives, which for technical reasons may be exchanged for more modern locomotives with a different type of engine (steam, electric, diesel). 

5. As far as services beyond the charter of carriages and the organisation of journeys are concerned, Majestic-Train GmbH is entitled to use the services of third parties.

2. We do not and cannot warrant for the compliance with time tables presented to us, because all regular trains, including regular freight trains, take precedence over our special trains.

Moreover, we reserve the right to relegate such passengers without any compensation at any train station of our choice during a regular stop of our train.
