Ticket lost – still entitled to carriage?

“No compensation will be granted if tickets were stolen or lost .” Such provision used in the general condiditons of contract of a German coach tour company was held ineffective by Germany’s Supreme Court: the provision was inappropriate as it would frustrate purpose of contract when ticket got lost, even though a register of passengers allowed bus driver to verify passgenger’s right to carriage.(Press release 17/2005 by BGH/German Supreme Court)
