Flights: With regard to the air fare there are additional terms specific to that fare, for example, tickets are normally non-changeable and non-refundable. You can review the terms and conditions during the booking process on the Website. Whilst the Travel Agent is not responsible for airline schedule changes or cancellations, we will provide you with reasonable assistance via our Customer Service team, who can be called on +44 (0)7438942316
Please note that airlines may charge for additional services (for example, but not limited to, credit card usage charge, checked baggage, airport check-in, preferred seating, in-flight entertainment (if available) and food, drink and snacks etc.) Any charges for these additional services are not included in the price of your ticket and must be paid to the airline directly.

The Travel Agent cannot make any guarantees that particular seats can be allocated, even if they are pre-booked with an airline. Any transfers between terminals or airports must be paid for by the Customer.
Best priced air fares may not take the most direct route and some itineraries may require a change in aircraft en-route. Flights marketed as ‘direct’ means that there is no need to change aircraft during the journey, however, the plane may have to stop for re-fuelling and/or to let passengers on or off. Details of scheduled stops are detailed during the booking process on the Website.

Infants must be at least 6 weeks old and must either sit on the adult’s lap or in an infant seat (please contact the airline for details of appropriate infant seats that may be taken on board). Generally, children aged 2 years and above must occupy their own seat and pay the child fare.
Customers are advised that in some cases flights booked with one airline may be operated by another airline, details of the operating airline, where different, are indicated on the Website.

One-way Combineables: In certain cases, in order to provide greater choice and special return fares, the Travel Agent will combine two one-way fares on the same or different airlines. Each one-way ticket is subject to its own rules, restrictions and fees. If one of these flights is affected by an airline change (e.g. cancellation or schedule change) that causes a Customer to make changes to the other flight, the Customer will be responsible for any fees incurred for making changes to the unaffected flight.
Hotel and other Accommodation: Hotels are given star ratings, however, these are not necessarily the official local rating and standards can vary between hotels and accommodation of the same class in different countries. Generally, check-in is 3pm and check-out is 11am, however, these times may vary. Please contact the Travel Agent if you need more specific details. Breakfast is not included in the price, unless specifically stated and some hotels may charge additional local taxes. Bed configurations may vary to the image shown on the Website and they will differ by country. For example, North American hotels may consist of two double beds, whilst a European room would have two single beds. There may be additional charges for extra beds or cots. The Customer should contact the hotel directly to confirm exact bed layout before making their booking.
Car Rental: All drivers must display a full valid driving licence at the time of pick up and the licence must have been valid for 12 months and both paper and photo licences must be presented. The Customer may also be asked to provide credit card details as security for any damage that may be caused to the vehicle during rental.

Customer Contract: The content of the Contract may include informing and advising the Customer, as well as making the requested reservations, if possible, on behalf of the Customer. After commissioning the booking, the Customer is bound towards the Travel Agent and Travel Supplier, irrespective of whether this was confirmed directly or not. Should the Travel Agent charge a fee for one of its own services, the Travel Agent shall make this known in advance. For booking on the internet, the Travel Agent organises the booking process in such a way that the Customer is notified before accepting the offer that he is entering into in a Contract. By confirming the booking with the Travel Agent, the Customer is bound to the Travel Agent and supplier by this Contract. The order confirmation will, in general, be emailed immediately to the Customer, in which case this confirmation is considered to be proof of the agreement as stated in the confirmation.

4. Delivery of your Booking
All tickets, if sold on the Website are e-tickets, which is a paper-less way to book flights. When the booking has been made, it is stored electronically in the airlines reservation system. The Travel Agent will send you a booking confirmation email and then a separate e-ticket or voucher confirmation (for non air bookings) will follow. It is important that the Customer receives both a booking confirmation and then an e-ticket or voucher confirmation number for each product in a separate email. The Travel Agent recommends that you take both the booking confirmation and the e-ticket and/or voucher confirmation with you. The Travel Agent cannot be held responsible for non compliance with these rules and regulations and strongly recommends that you check these details with your airline in advance of travel.
It is the Customers responsibility to check that all of the correct information has been entered into the booking including, but not limited to, the correct passenger names, flights, dates and travel itinerary. If anything is incorrect, it is the Customers responsibility to notify us, also the Travel Agent immediately. All assistance possible will be offered to rectify anything, however, charges may be incurred by both the Travel Agent and the Travel Supplier, which would need to be paid by the Customer.
The Travel Agent relies on the information that you provide as being accurate and therefore cannot be held responsible if your e-ticket does not arrive due to incorrect email address or your junk email settings. You must notify the Travel Agent immediately if you change your email address or contact telephone number. In addition please check that the name on your passport matches the name on your e-ticket and/or booking confirmation.
In rare circumstances, due to ticketing restrictions outside its control, the Travel Agent may not be able to pass information about confirmed bookings to the airline to enable them to fulfil the booking. If this occurs they will attempt to notify you within 48 hours of confirmation and organise a refund or arrange an alternative. Where you choose an alternative and it is more expensive than your original booking, you may be responsible for paying the difference.
Please note, you may be required to produce your booking number and/or confirmation email to the relevant Travel Supplier as evidence of your booking.
5. Travel Documents, Administrative and/or Health Regulations
It is the Customer’s responsibility to make sure that he/she is aware of the requirements concerning passport, visa and health regulations relevant to their trip, to comply with them and to pay the associated costs.
A valid 10-year passport is necessary for all holidays on the Website. Some overseas countries have an immigration requirement that a Customer’s passport is valid for a minimum period after the Customer enters that country, generally 6 months. If the Customer’s passport is in its final year of validity, the Customer is advised to confirm the requirements of the destination before making final travel plans. The name on the passport must match the name on the ticket, otherwise the Customer may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid.
British citizens are advised to consult the Identity and Passport Service http://www.ips.gov.uk/cps/rde/xchg/ips_live/hs.xs/index.htm for additional information about passport requirements. Non-British citizens are advised to consult their embassy or passport office for information and advice on visa and passport requirements required for the countries they propose to visit (and for return to the UK).
Please note: it can take some time to obtain a visa, so Customers are advised to apply in plenty of time, CH and the Travel Agent accepts no responsibility for Customers who do not possess the correct travel documents.
All Customers wishing to enter or transit through the USA under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP) must apply for authorisation to travel using the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA). Please allow sufficient time when making an ESTA application. It is recommended that such an application is made at least 72 hours before departure. For further information, please visit the US Department of Homeland Security’s website here <https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/>.
A number of governments are introducing new requirements for air carriers to provide personal information about all travelers on their aircraft. The data will be collected either at the airport when a Customer checks-in or in some circumstances when the Customer makes his/her booking. Accordingly, the Customer is advised to allow extra time to check-in for his/her flight.
For information on visa requirements, Customers are advised to contact the embassy of the country of their planned travel.
6. Changes and Cancellations
Price Changes: Charges for the services booked can be changed in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Travel Supplier. The changes will be notified and charged as soon as possible.
Cancellations: Cancellations, where permitted, can be made on working days by calling or emailing the Travel Agent in question or in writing, and upon the Customer’s request. See Agents website for contact information. All such requests will be dealt with on behalf of the Travel Suppliers concerned. In the event of cancellation or partial cancellation of a booking by the Customer, compensation may be required from the Customer to cover the costs of travel arrangements already made. In addition to this, charges may be imposed by the applicable Travel Suppliers. Your ability to cancel or modify a booked travel product or service, and the method for doing so, will depend on the specific airline’s fare rules or Travel Supplier’s terms and conditions. It therefore, may not be possible to cancel or modify some products or services, or there may be specific requirement you will have to meet. Please note that for itineraries built up of different routings and more than one fare base, there may be more than one set of fare rules. In this instance, the most restrictive fare rules will apply. The Customer is responsible for reading all of the fare rules relating to their reservation.
Where a cancellation affects more than one person on the booking, any applicable cancellation charge will be applied in respect of each person on the booking. In some cases, compensation for cancellation payable to the applicable Travel Suppliers can amount to the full value of the travel booked, so that no reimbursement to the Customer is made. Partial cancellation, i.e. cancellation of a particular arrangement, without losing the value of the particular arrangement may not be possible.
If a Customer does not present him/herself at the departure of the trip, no refund will be due to the Customer and the airline will cancel the entire itinerary.
Changes: Changes to a booking may only be made on working days by calling the Travel Agent that supplied the bookings, and upon the Customer’s request. A standard administration fee will be charged by the Travel Agent in respect of each change made. Where a change affects more than one person on the booking, the Travel Agent reserves the right to charge an administration fee in respect of each person on the booking. In order to change a Customer booking, the Travel Agent will normally need to cancel the original booking, which may incur compensation and/or charges imposed by the Travel Suppliers up to the full value of travel booked and Customers will need to pay for the cost of a new booking. Airlines do not generally allow name changes on flight bookings.
Restricted Fares: Unless otherwise stated by the Customer, it is assumed that the Customer requires the least expensive Services. Such Services (e.g. “economy class”) may be provided without any possibility of making changes or cancelling. In such cases, the Services cannot be provided in a different manner or at a different time or place to those contracted.
Most Travel Agents will impose its own standard administration fee in the event of a cancellation or changes to a booking of £55.00 per flight, hotel or car booking. The Travel Supplier may also apply its own fee, please refer to the terms and conditions of the Travel Supplier.
Reimbursements: In the event of a refund to the Customer after the above deductions, the relevant amounts will be transferred back by the party that took the original payment (such as Travel Agent, a Supplier, or such other party as it may appear in the Customer’s credit card or bank statement) to the payment card used to make the original booking. Any booking charges applied will not be eligible for reimbursement. Customers should note that refund of flight bookings may take up to 6 months.

Cancellations or Changes made by the Customer: If you wish to change or cancel your flight & hotel booking, please call the concern Travel Agent Customer Services on the number shown on their website. The Travel Agent will endeavour to amend or cancel your booking as far as possible. However, many flights and hotels used in flight and hotel bookings are non changeable and non refundable, and therefore, any change to a flight or hotel may require the purchase of a new flight or hotel booking. The Customer is liable for all associated costs of a new booking. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT THE CUSTOMER TAKES OUT APPROPRIATE INSURANCE TO COVER ALL SITUATIONS THAT MAY REQUIRE CANCELLATION OR CHANGES TO TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS.

If the Customer is notified of any major changes to your flight and hotel booking after we have confirmed your booking but before you travel, you can either accept these new arrangements (and cover any additional increase in price from your original booking), buy another flight and hotel booking (and cover any additional increase in price from your original booking) or cancel your flight and hotel booking and receive a full refund from the Travel Agent.
Major Changes shall include, a change in your departure or arrival flight by more than 12 hours; a change in the length of your holiday; or a change in the airport you depart or arrive from (except where the airports are in the same city), a change of accommodation to a lower standard or to a different resort.
The Travel Agent will not be liable to the Customer for any compensation if forced to cancel or make any changes to your flight and hotel booking as a result of events outside their control and which neither the Travel Agent or its Travel Suppliers could reasonably foresee. Such events include; war; threats of war; government intervention; terrorism; riots; civil unrest; natural and nuclear disasters; fire; actual or potential weather conditions; health risks, industrial disputes; technical problems with transport; closed or congested airports; and any force majeure events.
Where as a result of such an event occurring after your departure a significant part of your flight and hotel booking cannot be provided, you will be offered a suitable alternative if available. If a suitable alternative is not available, or for good reasons, you do not accept the offered alternative, we will return you to your place of departure. Again, the Travel Agent strongly recommends that the Customer takes out comprehensive insurance to cover such circumstances.
Please note that airlines may charge for additional services (for example, but not limited to, checked baggage, airport check-in, preferred seating, in-flight entertainment (if available) and food, drink and snacks etc.) Any charges for these additional services are not included in the price of your ticket and must be paid to the airline directly.
