If travel performance is not in accordance with the terms and conditions of the contract the traveller may demand remedy, if it does not require a disproportionate expense. Remedy is made by removing the travel defects re. by an equivalent substitute performance.

If the journey is defective and if TooT does not provide remedy within an adequate period of time determined by the traveller the traveller him-/herself can redress the defect and can claim compensation for the necessary expense. Setting a time limit is not necessary if TooT refuses to provide remedy or if a special interest of the traveller justifies his/her helping him-/herself immediately.
5.4. If a journey is seriously affected by a defect the traveller may set an adequate time limit for remedy. If the time limit elapses unused the traveller may terminate the contract. The time limit is negligible if remedy is impossible, is refused or if the immediate termination is justified by a special interest of the traveller. The same applies if due to the defect the traveller cannot be expected to continue the journey for important reasons and reasons recognisable to TooT.
