4.2 If the traveler withdraws from the travel contract (cancellation) or does not commence the journey, OVERCROSS loses the claim to the travel price, but may demand flat-rate compensation in accordance with § 651h II BGB. The compensation claim is calculated taking into account the following compensation flat rates.

The cancellation fee is therefore per traveler:
