The following Booking Conditions, together with the General Information contained in this section and on our website, form the basis of your contract with VogueTravelHouse Ltd.
Please read them carefully as they set out our respective rights and obligations. By asking us to confirm you’re booking, we are entitled to assume that you have had the opportunity to read and have read these booking conditions and agree to them.
We are Vogue Travel House Ltd with company registration number – 12702129. Our registered office is located at - Devonshire House, 1 Mayfair Place, London, England, W1J 8AJ. And EZEEFLIGHTS TRAVELS PVT LTD, 2nd Floor, 20A, Shivaji Marg, Najafgarh Rd, Karampura Industrial Area, Karam Pura, Delhi
When you book flights, accommodation or holiday packages, your contract will be with VogueTravelHouse Ltd. When we refer to a “Package” in these conditions we mean a package as defined by the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.
Except where otherwise stated, these booking conditions only apply to holiday arrangements which you book with us in the UK and which we agree to make, provide or perform (as applicable) as part of our contract with you. All references in these booking conditions to “holiday”, “booking”, “contract”, “package”, “tour” or “arrangements” mean such holiday arrangements unless otherwise stated.
In these Booking Conditions, “you” and “your” means all persons named on the booking (including anyone who is added or substituted at a later date) or any of them, as the context requires. “We”, “us” and “our” means VOGUE TRAVEL HOUSE.
MAKING A BOOKING WITH US
To make a booking, please contact us by telephone or e-mail. All bookings are subject to these booking conditions. The first named person on the booking (“party leader”) must be authorized to make the booking on the basis of these booking conditions by all persons named on the booking and by their parent or guardian for all party members who are under 18 when the booking is made. By making a booking the party leader confirms that he/she is so authorized. The party leader is responsible for making all payments due to us. The party leader must be at least 18 when the booking is made.
Subject to the availability of your chosen arrangements, we will confirm your holiday by issuing a confirmation invoice. This invoice will be sent to the party leader. Please check this invoice carefully as soon as you receive it. Contact us immediately if any information which appears on the confirmation or any other document appears to be incorrect or incomplete as it may not be possible to make changes later.
We will do our best to rectify any mistake notified to us outside these time limits but you must meet any costs involved in doing so. The only exception to this requirement to meet costs is where the mistake in question was made by us and there is good reason why you did not tell us about it within these time limits.
Disclaimer: We regret we cannot accept any liability if we are not notified of any inaccuracy (for which we are responsible) in any document within 14 days of our sending it out (5 days for tickets).
In order to confirm your chosen arrangements, usually a deposit of 20% of the total holiday cost or full payment if booking within 10 weeks of departure must be paid at the time of booking. In order to secure particular flights, we may require a higher deposit than normal (to include the full cost of the flight element) to be paid at the time of booking.
The balance of the holiday cost must be received by us not less than 10 weeks prior to departure. This date will be shown on the confirmation invoice. Reminders are not sent. If we do not receive all payments due (including any surcharge where applicable) in full and on time, we are entitled to assume that you wish to cancel your booking. In this case, we will be entitled to keep all deposits paid or due at that date.
A binding contract between us comes into existence when we dispatch our confirmation invoice to the party leader. This contract and all matters arising out of it are governed by English law. We both agree that any dispute, claim or other matter which arises out of or in connection with this contract or your holiday will be dealt with by the Courts of England and Wales only unless, in the case of Court proceedings, you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland.
These are the terms on which we will make a booking for your travel or holiday requirements. When making your booking we will arrange for you to enter into a contract with the principal(s) or other supplier(s) (e.g. tour operator/airline/accommodation) named on your receipt(s). We can book a package holiday for you, in which case you will have one contract with the principal, or we can book the services that make up your holiday with different principals or suppliers, in which case you will have separate contracts with each of them. As an agent, we accept no responsibility or liability for the acts or omissions of the principal(s) or supplier(s) or for the services provided by them. The principal’s or supplier’s Booking Conditions will apply to your booking and we advise you to read these carefully as they do contain important information about your booking. Please ask us for copies of these if you do not have them. All travel arrangements which we provide or which are sold through us are not an offer by us to sell any travel arrangements, but an invitation to you to make an offer to the suppliers of the arrangements. We are free to accept that offer on behalf of those suppliers or to reject it.
Changes or Cancellations You Make Before Travel
If you want to change the arrangements you have booked in any way, we will try to help you. Although we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to do so as these changes are subject to availability at the time and to the terms and conditions and charges of the principal/supplier. We will liaise with them and inform you of the amendment or cancellation charges which are applicable up to 100% of the cost of the booking, depending upon the type of booking and notice you give.
For any changes that can be made, we will charge the price that applies on the day the change is made. Remember any change to your departure date, airport, transport, destination, accommodation, or length of holiday has to apply to all members of your booking.
The lead name on the booking must give us notice to change.
In addition to any charges applied by the principal/suppliers, we will also apply a service charge on the booking and for each item you want to modify as to cover our costs of administering the changes. Any booking discount you may have received at the time the original booking was made may be altered or reduced whenever changes are made.
The terms set out below, together with the terms set out in Section C, apply when we have arranged a package for you.
Price Changes After Booking
Although we try that the amount on which you have booked a package remains similar, but due to change in transportation costs,( including the cost of fuel), dues, taxes or fees are chargeable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports and exchange rates mean that the price of your package may change after you have booked. However, there will be no change within 30 days of your departure.
Should you decide to cancel for this reason, you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the issue date printed on your final invoice. We will consider an appropriate refund if you can show that you are unable to travel or use the package in the near future.
Changes Made By Us Before Travel
Sometimes we’ll have to make changes to your Package. Significant Changes: If any change will have a significant effect on your Package, we’ll tell you about it before you travel (if there is time). The sort of significant changes we’ll tell you about include a change to your UK departure point; significant change of your destination; a change of more than 12 hours to the time you leave the UK or your destination or a change of time of embarkation or disembarkation by more than 12 hours; if we downgrade your accommodation by a lower official rating.
If you don’t want to accept a significant change, we will offer you an alternative Package of equivalent or closely similar standard and price at no extra cost, or a less expensive Package, in which case we will refund the difference in price. If you do not wish to take the alternative we offer you, you can choose a different Package offered for sale by us and pay, or receive a refund of, any price difference. Or, if you prefer, you can cancel your Package and receive a full refund of any money you have paid to us, except for any amendment charges. Unless the change is as a result of circumstances ’Circumstances Beyond our Control’, we will pay you compensation.
Changes You Make Before Travel
If you want to change the arrangements you have booked in any way, we’ll try to help you, although we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to do this as changes are subject to availability at the time and to our terms and conditions and those of the transport or accommodation providers’.
For any changes that can be made, we will charge the price that applies on the day the change is made. Remember any change to your departure date, airport, transport, destination, accommodation, or length of holiday has to apply to all members of your booking. The lead name on the booking must give us notice to change. We will make the changes from the date we receive the instruction from you.
You are not permitted to change all the names on any booking and at least one of the passengers (over 18) on the original booking must remain unless you are prevented from traveling for reasons beyond your control and not simply from a change of mind.
Changes to a Package
If you need to change any accommodation you have booked, we will do our best to help. Where permitted by our suppliers, changes to accommodation can usually be made for an amendment fee, although changes close to your arrival date may not be possible. Please note, in some cases, we negotiate special offer rates with our accommodation providers, such rates may not allow changes to accommodation once booked – any such changes will incur up to 100% charges. Where this applies, you will be advised at the time of booking.
The majority of our providers do not typically allow changes to be made to tickets after bookings have been made. Changes such as name changes (including initial changes), destination and date changes can be treated by such suppliers as a cancellation and rebooking, regardless of the period of notice given to us. If the supplier treats the change as a cancellation and rebooking we will pass on to you the cost imposed by the supplier, which could be up to 100% of the ticket price, in addition to any difference in price for the changed arrangements and, you must also pay an amount to cover our administration costs as detailed below.
Also, note that the transport provider may refuse to issue replacement tickets for lost or stolen tickets and new tickets may have to be purchased by you. The cost of the new ticket may be greater than the cost of the original ticket.
In addition to any charges applied by the transport providers, we may also apply our service fee on the booking and for each item you want to charge to cover our costs of administering the change. Any booking discount you may have received at the time the original booking was made may be altered or reduced whenever changes are made.
Cancellation By You
The lead name on the booking must give us notice to cancel. We will apply charges from the date we receive the instruction from you.
Cancellation of a Package
In order to cover our expected losses from the cancellation of any other booking, there are cancellation charges, which must be paid by you if you or anyone traveling with you cancels. Note: These cancellation charges apply to all bookings, except in circumstances where a booking includes items or services where our suppliers own cancellation charges exceed those shown below. In these circumstances, any additional cancellation charges will be advised at the time of booking. Please ensure you are certain of the fees applicable to your booking by asking us before proceeding to book your arrangements.
If any member of the booking cancels and you can’t fill that person's place, you may have to pay extra for your accommodation. For example, you may have to pay single or under-occupancy supplements. If you cancel, you must still pay any insurance premiums and amendment charges which arose before the cancellation, and any deposits paid for any pre-booked items or services.
Cancellation of Optional Extras
When we refer to 'Optional Extras', we mean anything you choose to add to your booking that is additional to the inclusive transport and accommodation arrangements you book. For example, park tickets, event tickets, pre-bookable excursions or car hire. If you cancel any Optional Extras for which there is a cost, we will pass on any costs imposed by the provider of the service; in addition, we may add our service fee to cover our costs of administering the changes.
Circumstances Beyond Our Control
Sometimes we have to make cancellations due to unusual and unforeseeable circumstances that are beyond the Company's control or the control of our suppliers, the consequence of which neither the Company nor its suppliers could avoid even with all due care, including, but not limited to, war, threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity (actual or threatened), industrial dispute, unavoidable technical problems with transport, machinery or equipment, power failure, changes imposed by rescheduling or cancellation of flights by an airline, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, flood, drought, adverse weather conditions, epidemics or outbreaks of illness and level of water in rivers. In such situations, we cannot pay any compensation, reimburse expenses, or cover losses for any amount or otherwise accept responsibility.
Changes Made After Travel
If, after your departure, a significant part of your Package cannot be provided, you will be offered a suitable alternative if possible. If it is not possible to offer you a suitable alternative or, for good reasons, you do not accept the alternative arrangements, we will return you to the place of your departure. If appropriate, we will also pay you compensation, unless your return has been due to circumstances beyond our control. The amount of compensation will be reasonable, taking account of all the circumstances.
In the unlikely event that your flight back to the UK cannot be provided as planned due to the collapse of the airline on which you were due to travel, you must contact us as soon as possible. We’ll help you by finding an alternative return flight for you (so you may have to spend extra time in your destination until it can be arranged and this may mean you have to incur extra cost). In finding an alternative flight we’ll take the approach of ‘like for like’. If the flight you booked was an economy seat we’ll arrange an alternative return flight in economy.
If your flight seat was business or first class, we’ll try to find an alternative return flight in business or first class. Our priority is to get you home as soon as possible in the same class of travel as you’d booked, so if we can only find an alternative in a lower class of travel, we’ll offer you that flight, and having done so, we’ll have fulfilled our obligation to you. We won’t be liable for any costs you incur if you reject the alternative flight we offer and decide to make your own arrangements, or if you haven’t given us the opportunity to arrange an alternative flight home for you.
Cancellation By Us
We can cancel your Package and any other holiday we organize. If we have to cancel a Package for any particular reason, we will tell you as soon as reasonably possible. In these circumstances, we will, if we are able to do so, offer you an alternative Package of equivalent or closely similar standard and price at no extra cost, or a less expensive Package, in which case we will refund the difference in price. If you do not wish to take the alternative we offer you, you can choose another offered for sale by us and pay, or receive a full refund of, any price difference. Or, if you prefer, you can receive a full refund of any money you have paid to us, except for any amendment charges. We will consider an appropriate refund of insurance premiums paid if you can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy. However, we will not cancel your Package within 14 weeks of departure except if we are forced to do so because of unusual circumstances we could not have foreseen where we could not avoid the results of those circumstances even after taking all reasonable care. (See 'Circumstances Beyond Our Control' above) No compensation will be payable in these circumstances, whenever they happen, and we will only have to offer you the above choices. We can also cancel if you fail to make payment for your booking on time.
Delays sometimes occur. We work closely with the airlines and overseas offices to make sure any delay is as short as possible. When a delay occurs we will try to make sure refreshments or meals are provided when appropriate. We will not do these ourselves as such arrangements will normally be the responsibility of the airline. If you have taken out our recommended travel insurance or a comparable policy you should have cover against delays.
Our Liability To You
(i)We have a legal duty to use reasonable skill and care in providing the services and facilities that form any part of your booking, or in arranging for third party suppliers to provide those services and facilities. In addition, we’re also liable to you under the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 for any failure by us or any of the suppliers we use to perform a service or provide a facility which forms part of our contract with you for a Holiday. If we comply with any applicable regulatory or legal requirements (such as, for example, those of the Civil Aviation Authority) that will mean we and our suppliers have properly performed our obligations to you under our contract with you. Taking reasonable skill and care doesn’t necessarily mean we have to comply with each and every local law and regulation particularly where these impose absolute obligations. You must show that reasonable skill and care hasn’t been used by us or our supplier if you wish to make any claim against us.
(ii)Where a flight ticket is downgraded or a flight canceled or delayed, or boarding is denied by any airline in circumstances that entitle you to compensation under the Denied Boarding Regulations 2004, then you must make your claim under those Regulations directly against the airline. Any sum you’re paid by the airline in this respect constitutes the full amount of your entitlement to compensation for all matters flowing from the airline's actions and which fall within the scope of the Denied Boarding Regulations. If, for any reason, you don’t comply with the requirement to claim against the airline and make a claim for compensation against us, you agree that, at the time we pay you any compensation, you’ll make a complete assignment to us of the rights you have against the airline in relation to your claim.
(iii) For claims which involve death or personal injury resulting from an activity forming part of your Package, we have liability and we will pay you reasonable compensation, in each case subject to all the exclusions and limitations.
(iv) We do not accept liability for any claim, even if it relates to death or personal injury, where that claim arises from any cause that is not due to any fault on our part or that of our agents, subcontractors or suppliers because it is due to your fault, or it is due to the fault of someone not connected with the performance of the Package contract and is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or because the claim arises from unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised, or the claim arises out of an event which neither we, nor our agents, subcontractors or suppliers could have foreseen or prevented.
(v) You agree to assist us in recovering from any third party any sum which may compensate us for any sums we pay you. In particular, you’re obliged to assign to us any rights that you may have against any other person whose acts or omissions have caused or contributed to our legal liability to pay you compensation. You must also provide us with all assistance we may reasonably require to obtain reimbursement from any third party.
(vi) Should you become ill while on holiday, you must consult a local doctor and, in addition, report your illness to the supplier’s representative (if available) or via our contact details as shown on our travel documentation. You should also consult your GP upon your return to the UK. Should you then wish to make a claim against us as a result of that illness, you must provide us with full details of both the local doctor you saw and your GP, together with written authority for us to obtain a medical report from both those doctors.
(viii) If, during your holiday, you or any member of your party suffers any difficulty through misadventure as a result of any activity which doesn’t form part of your contracted Package arrangements, we’ll offer you prompt assistance. This assistance may include our making a contribution towards your initial legal costs in taking action against the person(s) responsible but only if you request this within 90 days of the incident in question. If you’re entitled to have any costs and expenses arising from such an incident met by any insurance policy or if you obtain a costs order against anyone in relation to the incident, you must repay to us the costs and expenses we incur in assisting you.
(ix) Other than as set out above, and as is detailed elsewhere in these booking conditions, we shall have no legal liability whatsoever to you for any loss, damage, personal injury or death which you suffer arising directly or indirectly from any aspect of your Package.
Loss of or Damage to Luggage
The amount of compensation we’ll pay for any loss of or damage to luggage is limited in accordance with the conventions listed in paragraph B11 (vi) above. For claims for missing or damaged baggage, you must follow the rules on your travel documents or included within the airline's conditions of carriage. Please note, you only have a limited amount of time within which to notify us or the airline and to make a claim. We won’t accept liability for high-value items because you should insure such items for the appropriate amount.
Descriptions of accommodation, facilities, and services we provide are based on information obtained from our suppliers. Outside of peak season, it is common for facilities and services to be less widely available, both in your accommodation and holiday resort/destination generally. Sometimes the facilities described will be withdrawn for reasons such as maintenance, bad weather or lack of demand from guests. Where our suppliers advise us about significant changes to descriptions or about the withdrawal of any significant facility, we will tell you as soon as possible. Some activities or facilities, water-sports for example, may not be available all year round. There may be a charge for some facilities, for example, TVs, safety deposit boxes, sun-loungers, parasols, tennis courts, pool tables, and air-conditioning. In some places during high season (and even at other times) there is a possibility you will be disturbed by noise from less considerate groups, so please bear this in mind when choosing your destination and accommodation. Any transfer times we quote for travel between airport and resort are approximate and, depending on circumstances, the journey time to your own chosen property may be longer.
Advertised Prices: : Mistakes or computer errors occasionally occur, so if any price on our web site or booking system is obviously wrong, then any booking made based on that price won’t be valid, and we’ll be entitled to cancel it. All prices are subject to change at any given time before a booking is made. Your travel agent will tell you the current price at the time you make a booking inquiry.
Local Charges: Charges may be made in resort for certain facilities/activities such as watersports, sun loungers, sun umbrellas, safety deposit boxes, laundry services, minibars, air conditioning, resort fees, city taxes, etc.
Taxes: We will advise you of all mandatory taxes, which you must pay before departure. However, many countries charge departure taxes that can only be paid locally. It is therefore recommended that you retain sufficient local currency to meet such charges. Details of departure taxes can be obtained from the relevant airline when you reconfirm your flight details.
Making A Booking And Paying
On Request Bookings: A booking isn’t confirmed until we issue a confirmation invoice. Some travel and accommodation arrangements are only available on an ‘on request’ basis and we can’t confirm these until we receive confirmation from our supplier. Any arrangements that are provisionally booked ‘on request’ are not confirmed or guaranteed and are subject to change (including price) until we receive confirmation from our supplier. This particularly applies when booking holidays with flights on a scheduled airline a long time before departure, when seats haven’t yet been loaded onto reservations systems by the airline. It also applies to bookings attempted online which are not immediately confirmed by us by email confirmation.
The Lead Name & Their Responsibilities: The person who instructs us to make the booking, who signs the booking form (if booking with a travel agent) or who completes the booking online or by telephone is the 'Lead Name'. He or she must be 18 years of age or over at the time of booking (or 21 years in some cases as required by the supplier of services - you will be advised if this applies at the time of booking). Anyone under 18 intending to book and travel without an adult must discuss requirements with their Travel Advisor. We may accept a booking request subject to you satisfying our suppliers’ conditions of travel and subject to appropriate checks being made with parents/guardians and booking forms being signed by a parent/guardian and verified by us. A contract will then exist between the parent/legal guardian and us.
The Lead Name is the person who is entering into the contract with us. By making a booking, the Lead Name is agreeing to these booking conditions (and any other information and updates that are relevant to the arrangements you have booked). The Lead Name is the person responsible for paying the total booking price, including any insurance premiums and subsequent cancellation or amendment charges that may be payable – even if any of the other people traveling on the booking fail to pay their share of the price. The Lead Name agrees to provide all those who are named as passengers on the booking with accurate and full information regarding the travel arrangements booked, including any changes made to those arrangements by us or the Lead Name, and confirms that all those named passengers, including any that may be added at a later date, agree to be named on the booking and agree to be bound by these booking conditions.
When a booking has been confirmed by us, only the Lead Name can cancel or amend the booking. However, in the case of the death or serious illness of the Lead Name, we’ll accept a written instruction to cancel or amend signed by another person named on the booking.
Paying For Your Booking:
At the time of booking you agree to pay us either:
* a non-refundable deposit as required by us and/or the supplier of the travel services (you will be advised of the amount of deposit that must be paid), or;* the full cost if: (a) it is required by the supplier of the travel arrangements; or (b) if you are booking a 14 weeks or less before your travel date.
If you’re only asked to pay a deposit at the time of booking, the remaining balance of the cost must be paid no later than the balance due date advised by your travel agent (which may be more than 14 weeks before departure date), or the date stated on your booking confirmation (if you booked by phone or online). At the very latest, full payment must reach us by 14 weeks before your travel date.
PLEASE NOTE: if you do not pay on time, we have the right to cancel your booking and to retain or make a cancellation charge in accordance with these booking conditions.
Prevention of Fraud
We will ask you to provide your credit card or debit card billing address and cardholder details when you book. Please ensure that the details you give match those on your credit card billing statement. We reserve the right to cancel tickets after issue if payment is declined or incorrect cardholder details and billing information have been supplied to us. To help combat fraudulent activity, we reserve the right to carry out random checks, including checks of the electoral roll, and may request you to either fax or post to us proof of your address and a copy of the credit card and recent statement before issuing any tickets.
Special Requests: If you have a special request for something that is not automatically part of your booking (e.g. quiet room, low floor room, vegan meal on the flight, etc), please make the request at the time of booking. We will pass your request on to the relevant supplier to ask if they can provide what you want. Special requests are not guaranteed to be met – even if we’ve made a note of your request on your invoice. That just means we’ve received the request and have passed it on to the supplier. We will not pay compensation for failing to meet a special request unless we’ve confirmed separately in writing to you that the request will be met.
Confirming Your Booking With Us
Once you’ve booked we’ll issue a confirmation invoice setting out the travel details and price. A contract will exist when we or the Principal issues the confirmation invoice. Please check the details on your confirmation invoice carefully. If you have any questions, or anything does not appear to be right, you must contact our reservations staff or your booking agent, immediately. As mentioned above, pay particular attention to the date your final payment is due as we may cancel your booking if you don’t make your final payment on time. If we do this we’ll keep your deposit. If we agree to extend the deadline for you to pay the final payment at your request, and you still fail to pay by the agreed new deadline, we’ll cancel the booking and you’ll be liable to pay cancellation charges or as required by the Principal you’ve contracted with.
Your tickets and any other documents relating to your booking will be sent to the address which you give us at the time of booking, or may be delivered by e-mail in the form of an e-ticket provided by you at the time of booking. Upon the payment of the total cost of the travel arrangements, we will endeavor to dispatch your tickets to you at least 2 weeks prior to departure.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU CHECK ALL DETAILS OF YOUR TRAVEL DOCUMENTS BEFORE LEAVING. IF THERE ARE ANY INACCURACIES OR YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUERY PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY.
Our third party suppliers also have their own terms and conditions. They govern the services they provide and you’ll be bound by these, even if you have a contract with us. In the event of any conflict between a supplier’s terms and conditions and these booking conditions, the supplier’s term or condition that conflicts with ours will take precedence, unless it is deemed under English law to be invalid or unenforceable, in which case the relevant term or condition in our booking conditions will prevail. Some of our suppliers' conditions may limit or exclude their liability to you and, because they’ll apply to your contract with us, may also limit or exclude our liability to you. Suppliers’ terms and conditions are often subject to international conventions too, which limit their (and our) liability. You can get copies of the relevant supplier’s terms and conditions if you ask us.
Transport Timings, Check-in and Other Details
Travel timings are provided by suppliers and are subject to weather conditions and the need for constant maintenance and the ability of passengers to check in on time. There is no guarantee that transport will depart at the times stated on any itinerary or tickets which you receive. All timings are estimates only, and we do not have any liability to you for any delay, which may arise, or for any schedule alterations.
Check-in: If you fail to check in on time, the transport provider is entitled to refuse to allow you to board the flight/cruise. We cannot accept responsibility if such a situation arises and, whilst we endeavor to assist in making alternative travel arrangements to your destination, any cost or loss incurred as a result will be your responsibility.
If you fail to check-in at all, we retain the right to cancel any other arrangements you have booked with us and you will be unable to use your return travel arrangements. No refund can be made for any unused arrangements.
You must check-in at least 1 hour prior to departure for all flights (other transport services may vary, check your documentation carefully). Failure to do so could result in you being denied travel. Remember no calls will be made for your flight so please make sure that you are at the departure gate no later than 45 minutes before your departure time. Passengers that are refused travel will be responsible for arranging alternative transportation at their own expense.
Flight Reconfirmation: It is your responsibility to ensure that you reconfirm the departure date and times of all your flights at least 72 hours prior to departure. This is particularly important in respect of subsequent journeys after you have left the UK.
Flight Detail: Joint Services: Please note that two airlines may share the same services; therefore a flight may not be operated by the airline whose designated code is shown on your itinerary and ticket. If it is possible, at the time of booking, to provide details of the type of aircraft, which will be used, we will provide you with these. However, it is not possible to guarantee that this is the type of aircraft which will be used because this may change.
Travel Documents And Health Advice
It’s your responsibility to make sure everyone traveling has valid travel documents (e.g. Passport, Visa) and has followed health advice. For up to date UK Government health & travel advice please visit www.fco.gov.uk, www.hpa.org.uk and www.nathnac.org and contact your GP. The FCO may have issued information about your holiday destination. You are advised to check this information on the FCO website: We can’t accept any liability for your failure to do this. If we or your carrier are fined because anyone on your booking didn’t have the correct documents/vaccinations, etc., you’ll have to reimburse us.
Advance Passenger Information
To comply with UK and International regulations on Border Control and Aviation Security, before travel you must provide passport and certain other information, for each traveller, to the airline that is going to carry you (‘Advance Passenger Information’ or ‘API’). Please check your booking documents for details of how and when to submit this information. Failure to provide API by the deadlines stated (which may be several weeks before travel), could mean you can’t travel or, if the airline/cruise operator allows you to submit the information at the airport/port, you may be charged for this.
Disabled Travellers and Passengers with Reduced Mobility
We cannot be held responsible if you fail to tell us about special needs/requirements that will affect your holiday experience and this means we will not compensate you. For customers who require support or advice prior to booking, please note carefully the information below regarding different travel arrangements and for further assistance please inform us. If you have a medical / mobility problem/condition or disability which may affect your holiday, please tell us before you confirm your booking. We and our suppliers may require a doctor’s certificate or other documentation, information or waiver relating to such disability, medical / mobility problem or condition or fitness to travel as we or our suppliers consider necessary. In any event, you must give us full details in writing at the time of booking.
Overseas accommodation and services: The majority of overseas accommodation, overseas transport (including transfers) and other holiday services provided overseas are not equipped to cater to the needs of many disabled holidaymakers. If you have any disability, you must make appropriate inquiries about the suitability of particular accommodation, resorts, transport and services, and that you are fully satisfied you have made the correct choice before you book and confirm your holiday. Please note: if special arrangements need to be made for you an extra charge may have to be levied.
Flights: If you or a member of your party are a wheelchair user or have reduced mobility we strongly advise that you contact your Travel Advisor before making your reservation. This will enable your Travel Advisor to confirm with us or the airline and airport the availability of any assistance requirements prior to booking, as any changes made after booking will be subject to our standard change fees.
By making a booking with us, you agree we may use and disclose the information you provide for the following purposes: to enable us to process your booking (which will include passing your information to third party suppliers, such as hoteliers and airlines, and may involve sending your information to countries that do not have an equal level of privacy legislation to that in the UK); for market research and analysis purposes; for improving customer service; for the detection and prevention of fraud or other crime (which may include providing your information to organizations such as Banks and credit card companies); for compliance with legal requirements (which will include passing your information to public authorities such as customs and immigration) and for marketing contact by means of post or telephone to provide you with offers, products and services from us and carefully selected third parties.
If you wish to opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us, please advise one of our sales consultants or make the appropriate opt-out choices on the website when you book.
We want all our customers to have an enjoyable and carefree trip. But you must remember that you are responsible for your actions and the effect they may have on others. If we (or another person in authority) believe your actions could upset other customers, our suppliers or our own staff, or put them in danger, your holiday/travel arrangements may be ended and this could mean we or our suppliers may either ask you to leave your booked accommodation, or prevent you from boarding the aircraft. Our suppliers will deny boarding or impose additional conditions of carriage on any passenger who, for example, is intoxicated and/or disruptive or found to be smoking on-board the aircraft. If this happens, we will not pay compensation, make refunds, or cover any expenses you suffer as a result.
If your behaviour or the behaviour of any members of your travelling party causes any aircraft to be diverted we and/or the carrier will hold you and those members jointly and individually liable for all costs incurred as a result of that diversion. We cannot accept liability for the behaviour of others in your accommodation, flight, or for any facilities/services withdrawn as a result of their action.
If you are not satisfied with any aspect of your travel arrangements please complain as soon as possible to the relevant person (for example, the hotel management). If they cannot help, you must contact us on the telephone number supplied to you on your invoice/receipt and we will do everything reasonably possible to sort the problem out. If you are still not satisfied please write to our offices in the UK within 28 days of returning home. If you have special needs, which prevent you from writing to us then, where possible, we will accept details of your complaint over the telephone.
We would point out that failure to follow the above procedures and/or failure to complain within 28 days of your return, may reduce or extinguish any rights you have to claim compensation from us, or from any relevant supplier. Any such rights will be reduced or extinguished if, had you followed the above procedures, you or we could have taken steps to reduce any loss or damage suffered or entirely prevented it from being suffered.
It is difficult and sometimes impossible properly to investigate a complaint if we are not told about it reasonably quickly once your trip is over. Your right to claim compensation may also be reduced or extinguished, should any delay in your complaint being notified during or after your trip, prevent us from carrying out a proper investigation.
