Booking Conditions

Thank you for booking with us and we hope you have a wonderful time on your trip.   Below are the booking terms and important information (together our “Booking Conditions”) which relate to your booking with us, P&P Associates Limited t/a Manchester Airport Travel. We are registered in England No. 2124920. Registered. Office: Falcon House, Primett Road, Stevenage, SG1 3EE

References to "you" and "your" in these terms means all persons on the booking (including anyone added or substituted at a later date). "We", "us" and "our" means P&P Associates Limited.  These are the terms on which we will arrange a booking for your flight, accommodation, transfer, excursion, ticket or holiday requirements (the ‘Arrangements’).

These are the terms on which we will make a booking for your travel or holiday requirements, please ensure that you read both the terms and conditions and important information sections carefully.  They apply whether you make your booking online or over the telephone.

  1. Booking your trip

When you make a booking, you guarantee that you have the authority to accept, and do accept these conditions on your behalf and on behalf of all members of your party. As the lead passenger it is your responsibility to ensure that any information which is given to you by us or any of our employees or suppliers is passed on to all members of your party. Any information which we give to you shall be deemed as given to each and every party member for whom you are making or have made a booking.

Because you can book different combinations of travel arrangements through this site, we use different terms to describe them.

Where you book a single individual travel product with us (e.g. accommodation only or flight only), you have booked a ‘single component’.

Where you add more than one single component to your booking (for example a flight booking and a separate hotel booking), we call that a ‘multi-contract package’. That is, you are entering into multiple contracts with multiple suppliers and we are facilitating those separate contracts with each respective supplier. In these cases, your bookings - even though they may be linked to the same dates of travel - are separate and distinct.  All multi-contract bookings are purchased individually at their own individual price as detailed on your confirmation. The price charged in total will always equal the sum of the prices charged for each individual booking.   

A ‘single contract package’ is a combination of travel elements that have been combined by us and sold under a single contract and at a single price as detailed on your confirmation. Where you book a single-contract package, your contract for the supply of the Arrangements making up the package will be with us.

 When making your booking for a single component or a multi-contract package, we will arrange for you to enter into contracts with the airline, hotel, excursion or car hire companies providing the service(s) detailed on your confirmation (in these terms we call them ‘Travel Suppliers’).  The Travel Suppliers will be named on your booking confirmation. If you choose to book the services that make up your holiday with different principals or suppliers you will have separate contracts with each of them. The Travel Supplier’s Terms & Conditions will apply to your booking and we advise you to read these carefully as they do contain important information about your booking. Our Terms of Business are governed by English Law and the jurisdiction of the English Courts. You may however, choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if you wish to do so.


 

 

Please check that all names, dates and timings are correct on receipt of all documents and advise us of any errors immediately. Any changes to these details will incur additional charges which will be payable by you at the time the change is made.  Please ensure that the names given are the same as in the relevant passport. The booking information that you provide to us will be passed on only to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements or other persons necessary for the provision of your travel arrangements. The information may therefore be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary and religious requirements. Certain information may also be passed on to security or credit checking companies. If you are travelling to the United States, the US Customs and Border Protection will receive this information for the purposes of preventing and combating terrorism and other transnational serious crimes. If you travel outside the European Economic Area, controls on data protection may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country. If we cannot pass this information to the relevant suppliers, whether in the EEA or not, we will be unable to provide your booking.  In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons. Full details of our data protection policy are available upon request or via our website.

It is a condition of booking that we do not accept any bookings / reservations from a person aged under 18 years old. If it comes to our attention that a booking has been made by a person under 18 years old, then we are entitled to cancel any booking that is in breach of these terms. In this instance no refunds will be given.

  1. Pricing

When you use our website to make a booking, you will need to provide us with credit or debit card details in order to cover the full cost of your trip. You authorise us or an authorised third party to take full payment for the total amount of your purchase. Please note that you may be required to present a credit card at the time of check-in. rental or pick-up to provide confirmation of authorised card use or to secure any additional charges. The price of each product or service is regularly reviewed and may go up or down. Promotional or discounted offers on this site are provided at our discretion. All offers are subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time.

In addition to the price of your trip, there will be booking fees payable per person. All such fees will be highlighted to you during the course of making your booking.  If all payments due are not received in full and on time, we will notify the Travel Supplier and we or they may treat the Arrangements as being cancelled by you. In this event, you will be liable for any cancellation fees under clause 7.

We will not be liable for booking errors which are attributable to you or which are caused by unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances as defined in clause 15.

Notwithstanding the above, in cases where details other than price are materially incorrect we will offer you the choice of continuing with your booking or cancelling with a full refund of money paid on that booking only. 

Where inaccuracies relate to the understatement of the price of a specific product you will be offered either a full refund of money paid on that booking only or the opportunity to maintain that booking on receipt of the additional payment which is necessary.

Changes in Price

The price of your confirmed Arrangements is subject to variations which occur solely as a direct consequence of changes in:

(a) the price of the carriage of passengers resulting from the cost of fuel or other power sources;

(b) the level of taxes or fees on your confirmed arrangements imposed by third parties not directly involved in the performance of the package, including tourist taxes, landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports; or

(c) the exchange rates relevant to any package you have booked.

 

Price variations will be calculated by applying the cost differential we or the Travel Supplier(s) experience as a result of the above factors. Prices may go up or down and we will notify you about any variation by sending you a calculation explaining the variation no less than 20 days before you are due to depart.

We will absorb, and you will not be charged for, any increase equivalent to 2% of the price of your Arrangements, which excludes insurance premiums and any amendment charges. If you have to pay an increase of more than 8% of the price of your Arrangements (excluding any insurance premiums, amendment charges and/or additional services), we will offer you the options in clause 8.

If prices go down as a result of the above factors, a reflective refund will be made, but we/the Travel Supplier will also deduct our administrative expenses from what is owed to you and this may extinguish the value of the refund due.   Also, note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on price due to contractual protections in place.

  1. Confirmation of your booking

It is important that you understand that payment at the time you are making your booking does not in itself mean that your booking is confirmed. Your booking is only confirmed when we send you ours or the applicable Travel Supplier’s email confirmation of booking. If your confirmed arrangements include a flight, we will issue you with an ATOL Certificate.

Because we are making live reservations with Travel Suppliers, we have to have the security that we have appropriate payment from you and hence your initial payment to us is your authority to us to confirm your booking with us or the Travel Supplier as appropriate. If in the short time between your payment and us seeking to confirm your booking with the Travel Supplier, the travel product has become unavailable and we cannot obtain an alternative acceptable to you, you will of course receive a complete refund of the money you have paid for that product. Because in the case of multi-contract packages, you have separate contracts with each Travel Supplier, this refund will only apply to the product which is unavailable and any other bookings will not be affected, that is, you will be committed to any other products which were booked for travel at the same time.

You must ensure that all your details are correct at the time of booking (i.e. full n18ame(s) of travellers as shown on their passports), correct email address, telephone numbers, postal address, etc.)  The email address associated with your account will be used for all future communication with you, including any changes and additional information on your flights and/or hotel bookings. It is therefore your responsibility to ensure that you check your email on a regular basis, and also notify us should your email address change.

  1. ABTA membership

P&P Associates Ltd trading as Manchester Airport Travel holds full ABTA membership under ABTA number G3655. More information about ABTA can be found on their website at www.abta.com. We are also accredited by IATA. We are obliged to maintain a high standard of service to you by ABTA’s Code of Conduct.

  1. Our role as your booking agent

Flight and hotel arrangements generally offer much greater flexibility than pre-formulated packages, giving the traveller the opportunity to choose from a vast array of scheduled, no frills and charter flights for a range of durations. To these flight arrangements can be added hotel accommodation, car hire and/or transfers as required. We are proud to be an agent to travel providers of hotels, flights and other related services. We are not a tour operator and we are committed to total flexibility.

We work with various Travel Suppliers we and will be your point of contact and the liaison between you and the Travel Supplier(s) that you have selected.  In the unlikely event that anything goes wrong, we will communicate with them on your behalf.

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. Please note: Where we take on obligations in these terms in relation to multi-contract packages to for example, pay you compensation or provide you with assistance or alternative travel arrangements, we do so because we are obliged to do so under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018, not because we have a contract with you to supply those arrangements. 

  1. Financial protection

 

All the single contract packages and multi-contract packages we sell come with protection for your money. If you buy a single component then this might not apply. Flights and flight-inclusive single contract packages and multi-contract packages are ATOL- protected under our ATOL number is 5360. This means that you will be able to continue with your holiday or receive a refund of the amount paid to us in the unlikely event of our insolvency or the insolvency of a Travel Supplier.  When you buy an ATOL protected flight or flight inclusive holiday from us you will receive an ATOL Certificate. This lists what is financially protected, where you can get information on what this means for you and who to contact if things go wrong.

In respect of our flight-inclusive package arrangements, we are obliged to tell you: We or the suppliers of the services you have bought will provide you with the services you have bought (or a suitable alternative). In some cases, where neither we nor the supplier are able to do so for reasons of insolvency, an alternative ATOL holder may provide you with the services you have bought or a suitable alternative (at no extra cost to you). You agree to accept that in those circumstances, the alternative ATOL holder will perform those obligations and you agree to pay any money outstanding to be paid by you under your contract to that alternative ATOL holder. However, you also agree that in some cases it will not be possible to appoint an alternative ATOL holder, in which case you will be entitled to make a claim under the ATOL scheme (or your credit card issuer where applicable). If we, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL certificate, are unable to provide the services listed (or a suitable alternative, through an alternative ATOL holder or otherwise) for reasons of insolvency, the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust may make a payment to (or confer a benefit on) you under the ATOL scheme. You agree that in return for such a payment or benefit you assign absolutely to those Trustees any claims which you have or may have arising out of or relating to the non-provision of the services, including any claim against us, the travel agent (or your credit card issuer where applicable). You also agree that any such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if that other body has paid sums you have claimed under the ATOL scheme.   

 

  1.  Cancellations and amendments by you:

 

You may be able to cancel or amend your booking subject to any charges levied by the Travel Supplier in question, plus our administration fee of £40. 

If you wish to make any changes to your Arrangements after they have been confirmed (including if you wish to cancel all or some of them) you must inform us in writing (by email) or by telephone as soon as possible. Your notice requesting a change or cancellation will only take effect when it is received in writing by us and will be effective from the date on which we receive it. We can’t guarantee that changes can be met, although we will do our best to assist. All such changes and cancellations will be subject to the charges set out below and/or as shown in the applicable Travel Supplier’s booking conditions.

Where we are unable to assist with making a requested change, and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking we will treat this as a cancellation by you.

If you have booked a single contract or multi-contract package  and if any member of your party is prevented from travelling, that person(s) may transfer their place to someone else (introduced by you and satisfying all the conditions applicable to the arrangements, including an agreement to these terms) providing we are notified in writing not less than seven days before departure and you pay an amendment fee and meet all costs and charges incurred by us and/or incurred or imposed by us or any of the Travel Suppliers. Both you and the person to whom you would like to transfer your arrangements shall be jointly and severally liable for the payment of any balance due and for any additional fees, charges or other costs arising from the transfer.  If you are unable to find a replacement, cancellation charges as set out below will apply in order to cover our estimated costs. Otherwise, no refunds will be given for passengers not travelling or for unused services.

If you have booked a single contract or multi-contract package, you may cancel your Arrangements prior to their commencement (following the process outlined above) in the event that that i) circumstances amounting to unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances are occurring at the place where your Arrangements are due to be performed or its immediate vicinity; ii) those circumstances make it impossible to travel safely to the travel destination; iii) the performance of your Arrangements will be significantly affected by those unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances In this event, you will receive a refund without undue delay of any payments made but this is the maximum extent of our liability and we regret we cannot meet any other expenses or losses you may incur as a result.

Please bear in mind that certain airlines and other Travel Suppliers treat changes as a cancellation and charge accordingly - up to 100% of the cost for that part of the arrangement. Where applicable these charges will be passed on to you. Any Travel Supplier charges are in addition to our administration fee.

When changing your holiday details, the price of your new travel arrangements will be based on the price that applies on the day you make the change. These prices may not be the same as when you first made your booking.   Some arrangements cannot be removed once they have been added to your booking. Certain extras, such as excursions, theme park tickets may be non-refundable. We will make this clear when you book those arrangements, please check with us if you are unsure at the time of booking.

If the lead passenger is changed, a new lead passenger has to be nominated and they will be responsible for payment of any balance due on that new invoice.

 

  1.  Changes or cancellations by us or the Travel Supplier

Changes to and cancellations of single component bookings both before and after departure

In respect of all changes and cancellations made to single component bookings both before and after departure, please refer to the Travel Supplier(s)’ terms and conditions for information.  Because Travel Suppliers plan your Arrangements many months in advance, in some circumstances they must make changes to them and cancel them.

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the Travel Supplier needs to make a significant change to your confirmed Travel Arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the Travel Supplier in relation to any alternative travel arrangements offered by the Travel Supplier but we will have no further liability to you.

Changes to and cancellations of single-contract and multi contract packages

Where we refer to a price reduction in these Booking Conditions, we mean that we will give you an appropriate reduction in the price you paid for the Arrangements affected for any period during which there was lack of conformity, (unless that lack of conformity is attributable to you). Where we refer to ‘compensation’, we will pay you appropriate compensation without undue delay for any damage which you sustain as a result of any lack of conformity subject to the limitations and exclusions in clause 14.

Changes and cancellations before departure

(The following provisions do not relate to bookings of single components):

 

Most changes will be insignificant and we and the applicable Travel Supplier(s) reserve the right to make them. If we or the applicable Travel Supplier makes an insignificant change to the main characteristics of your arrangements we will try to notify the change to you as soon as reasonably possible before your departure but we will not notify you about any other insignificant change. We will have no other responsibilities to you in respect of any insignificant changes.

Occasionally, we or the applicable Travel Supplier(s) have to make a significant change and we reserve the right to do so. (However, we will not do so after the date on which the final balance of the cost of your Arrangements is due). A significant change is one where we or the applicable Travel Supplier(s) significantly alter any of the main characteristics of your confirmed Arrangements. Examples of significant changes include the following changes when made before departure:

  •  a change of accommodation to that of a lower official classification or standard to that originally booked for the whole or a major part of the time you are away;
  • a change of outward departure time resulting in the overall length of time you are away being reduced by twelve hours or more;
  • a change of UK departure point to one which is substantially more inconvenient for you (except between airports within or around the same city for example London Gatwick and Stansted Airports).
  • Where we or the applicable Travel Supplier(s) can no longer fulfil any special requirements that we have accepted and confirmed on our confirmation and this will have a significant impact on your Arrangements.
  • Where we increase the price of your Arrangements by more than 8% of the price of them (excluding any insurance premiums, amendment charges and/or additional services).

If we or the Travel Supplier has to make a significant change or cancel before departure and before the date on which the final balance of the cost of your Arrangements is due, we will inform you without undue delay and if there is time to do so before departure, we will offer you the choice of the following options:

i             (for significant changes) agreeing to the changed arrangements,

ii            accepting the cancellation or terminating the contract for the Arrangements and receiving a refund (without undue delay) of all monies paid; or

iii           accepting an offer of alternative arrangements of comparable standard from us, if available.

 

(In the event that any proposed change or alternative offered results in a reduction or increase in the price you have agreed to pay or an increase or decrease in the quality of arrangements we have agreed to provide, we will also notify you of any price reduction or additional amount due). 

You must notify us of your choice within 7 days of our offer. If you fail to do so, we will contact you again, re-iterating the above choices and sums payable or refundable and if you again fail to respond within 7 days, we may terminate the contract and refund all payments made by you without undue delay.

Where you choose option ii) above, subject to the following exceptions as well as the limitations and exclusions in clause 14, we will where appropriate pay you compensation as follows.

Period before departure a significant change or cancellation is notified to you

Compensation per person (excl. infants)

 

14 days or more

Nil

14 days or less

£25

 

We will not pay you compensation where:

a)            we make a significant change or cancel before you have paid the final balance of the cost of your Arrangements;

b)           we make a significant change or cancel as a result of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances as set out in clause 15;

c)          we cancel your Arrangements no later than 20 days before they are due to start because the minimum number of participants to run them has not been reached.

We will not make a price reduction or pay you compensation; and the above options will not be available where:

  • we make an insignificant change;
  • we cancel as a result of any failure by you (including a failure to make payment in accordance with these terms);
  •  where the change(s) or cancellation by us arises out of alterations to the confirmed booking requested by you.

Changes and cancellations after departure

(The following provisions do not relate to bookings of single components):

If we become unable to provide a significant proportion of your Arrangements after you have departed, we will try to offer you suitable alternative arrangements of, where possible, equivalent or higher quality than those specified in the contract. If the alternative arrangements we make are of a lower quality than those you originally booked, we will make a price reduction. You may reject the proposed alternative arrangements only if they are not comparable to what we originally promised to provide or if the price reduction we offer is inadequate. Where we are unable to make suitable alternative arrangements or you reject the proposed alternative arrangements in accordance with this clause, where appropriate, we will pay you compensation. Where our original agreement included return transport we will also provide you with equivalent transport back to your place of departure without undue delay or additional cost.

Where we are unable to ensure your return as agreed because of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances which directly prevent you from travelling safely back to your point of departure, we will bear the cost of necessary accommodation if possible of equivalent category for a period not exceeding (a) 3 nights per traveller (exceptions apply in respect of persons with reduced mobility and people travelling with them, pregnant women and unaccompanied minors, as well as persons in need of specific medical assistance, provided that we have been notified of their particular needs at least 48 hours before the start of the package); or (b) where a different period is specified in any passenger rights legislation applicable to the relevant means of transport for your return, for the period specified in that legislation.

This clause 8 sets out the maximum extent of our liability for changes and cancellations and we regret we cannot meet any other expenses or losses you may incur as a result of any change or cancellation.

 

  1. Travel Insurance

 

It is essential, and a condition of booking a holiday with us that you have adequate travel insurance in place for the duration of your trip.  It is also wise to buy travel insurance at the same time as arranging your trip, to cover you in the event that you have to cancel unexpectedly.

You must as a minimum take out a policy of insurance in order to cover you and your party against the cost of cancellation by you; the cost of assistance (including repatriation) in the event of accident or illness; loss of baggage and money; and other expenses. If you have booked insurance through our website your policy please check it carefully to ensure that all the details are correct and that all relevant information has been provided by you (e.g. pre-existing medical conditions). Failure to disclose relevant information will affect your insurance.

 

If you choose to travel without adequate insurance cover, we will not be liable for any of your losses howsoever arising, in respect of which insurance cover would otherwise have been available.

 

  1. Passports, Visas and Health

 

We can provide general information about the passport and visa requirements for your trip. Your specific passport and visa requirements, and other immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates. Neither we nor the principal(s) or supplier(s) accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with any passport, visa or immigration requirements. Most countries now require passports to be valid for at least 6 months after your return date. Please take special note that for all air travel within the British Isles, airlines require photographic identification of a specific type. Please ask us for full details. We can provide general information about any health formalities required for your trip but you should check with your own doctor for your specific circumstances.

It is the responsibility of the lead passenger travelling to make sure that they hold the correct passport and visa requirements. We will not be held responsible for any financial costs that may be incurred as a direct result of failure to do so.

Please also see the Important Information section below for further information.

11.  Special requests, disabilities and medical conditions

If you have any special request, you must advise us at the time of booking. We regret we cannot guarantee any request will be met. Confirmation that a special request has been noted is not confirmation that it will be provided. All special requests are subject to availability. If we are able to specifically confirm a special request or requirement, we will do so on our confirmation but where requests or requirements have not been so confirmed in writing on our confirmation, a failure to meet them will not be a breach of contract on our part. We will give you information about whether the arrangements you have chosen are generally suitable for persons with reduced mobility but if you or any member of your party has any precise medical problem or disability which may affect your chosen Arrangements, please provide us with full details before we issue our confirmation. We will only provide precise information on the suitability of the trip or holiday taking into account your needs if you specifically request us to do so.  Acting reasonably, if we are unable to properly accommodate your needs, we will not confirm your booking and/or if you did not give us full details at the time of booking, we will treat it as cancelled by you when we become aware of these details. Cancellation charges in accordance with clause 7 will apply.

 

  1. Complaints

Because the contract(s) for your travel arrangements is between you and the Travel Supplier(s), any queries or concerns relating to the travel arrangements should be addressed to them. If you have a problem whilst on holiday, this must be reported to the Travel Supplier or their local supplier or agent immediately. If you fail to follow this procedure there will be less opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint. The amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced or you may not receive any at all depending upon the circumstances. If you wish to complain when you return home, write to the principal/supplier. You will see the name and address plus contact details in any confirmation documents we send you. We will of course assist you with this if you wish - please contact Customer Services. If the matter cannot be resolved in resort by following the aforementioned procedure and you are still dissatisfied, your complaint should be received by ourselves in writing within 21 days of your return and we will endeavour, on your behalf, to resolve the matter with the relevant supplier. We regard it as unreasonable if you fail to deal with any matter whilst in resort and therefore if you fail to follow this procedure we will not regard ourselves liable for your failure to deal with the matter in resort.

If the matter cannot be resolved and it involves us or another ABTA Member then you have the option to use ABTA’s ADR scheme, approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute, see www.abta.com. You can also access the European Commission Online Dispute (ODR) Resolution platform at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. This ODR platform is a means of registering your complaint with us; it will not determine how your complaint should be resolved

 

  1. Special requests

We will always where possible pass on any requests to the suppliers but unfortunately no guarantee can be given that a request will be honoured, therefore any reservation made, will not be conditional upon the confirmation of a special request.

  1. Our responsibility for your booking

Please note that our responsibilities to you will differ according to what you have booked.

Single component bookings:

As booking agent we accept no responsibility for the acts or omissions of the Travel Supplier(s)) or for the services provided by them. Your booking is directly with the Travel Supplier. Other than where we are negligent in the provision of our booking services to you, we accept no liability or responsibility for any complaint, loss, damage, expense or other claim in respect of any aspect of your or Arrangements.

Specifically, we will not be liable for any act or omission by any person not employed directly by us or under our immediate control and whilst we have chosen our Travel Suppliers with care we have no control over them and so cannot be held responsible for any of their acts or omissions, or those of their servants, agents or employees.

Single-contract or multi-contract packages:

We act as a booking agent in relation to each separate component of a multi-contract package. Your booking in each case is with the Travel Supplier in question. However, in relation to those bookings, as well as single contract packages, we are obliged by the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 to accept responsibility as an “organiser” under those Regulations. 

  1.  Where you have booked a multi-contract package where we are acting as the organiser of the package, although we still act as agent for the Travel Supplier and your contract will be with the Travel Supplier, we will accept responsibility as an “organiser” under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 as set out below. As such, we are responsible for the proper provision of all the Arrangements included in your single-contract or multi-contract package, as set out on your confirmation invoice. Subject to these Booking Conditions, if we or the Travel Supplier negligently perform or arrange your travel arrangements and we don’t remedy or resolve your complaint within a reasonable period of time, and this has affected the enjoyment of your single-contract or multi-contract package you may be entitled to an appropriate price reduction or compensation or both. The level of such compensation will be calculated taking into consideration all relevant factors such as but not limited to: following the complaints procedure as described in these Booking Conditions and the extent to which ours or our employees’ or the Travel Supplier’s negligence affected the overall enjoyment of your single-contract or multi-contract package. Please note that it is your responsibility to show that we or the Travel Supplier have been negligent if you wish to make a claim against us.
  2. We will not be responsible or pay you compensation for any injury, illness, death, loss, damage, expense, cost or other claim of any description if it results from:
    1. the act(s) and/or omission(s) of the person(s) affected; or
    2. the act(s) and/or omission(s) of a third party unconnected with the provision of the services forming part of your single-contract or multi-contract package and which were unavoidable and extraordinary; or
    3. Force Majeure (as defined in clause 15).
  3. We limit the amount of compensation we may have to pay you if we are found liable under this clause:
  4. loss of and/or damage to any luggage or personal possessions and money, The maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of these claims is an amount equivalent to the excess on your insurance policy which applies to this type of loss per person in total because you are required to have adequate insurance in place to cover any losses of this kind.
  5. Claims not falling under (a) above and which don’t involve injury, illness or death. The maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of these claims is up to three times the price paid by or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total. This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong and you or your party has not received any benefit at all from your booking.
  6. Claims in respect of international travel by air, sea and rail, or any stay in a hotel
    1. The extent of our liability will in all cases be limited as if we were carriers under the appropriate Conventions, which include The Warsaw/Montreal Convention (international travel by air); The Athens Convention (with respect to sea travel); The Berne/Cotif Convention (with respect to rail travel) and The Paris Convention (with respect to hotel Travel Arrangements). You can ask for copies of these Conventions from our offices. Please contact us. In addition, you agree that the operating carrier or transport company's own 'Conditions of Carriage' will apply to you on that journey. When arranging transportation for you, we rely on the terms and conditions contained within these international conventions and those 'Conditions of Carriage'. You acknowledge that all of the terms and conditions contained in those 'Conditions of Carriage' form part of your single-contract or multi-contract package booking with us, as well as with the transport company and that those 'Conditions of Carriage' shall be deemed to be included by reference into your single-contract or multi-contract package booking.
    2. In any circumstances in which a carrier is liable to you by virtue of the Denied Boarding Regulation 2004, any liability we may have to you arising out of your single-contract or multi-contract package booking, arising out of the same facts, is limited to the remedies provided under the Regulation as if (for this purpose only) we were a carrier.
    3. When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question.
  7. It is a condition of our acceptance of liability under this clause that you notify any claim to us and the Travel Supplier(s) strictly in accordance with the complaints procedure set out in these Booking Conditions.
  8. Where any payment is made, the person(s) receiving it (and their parent or guardian if under 18 years) must also assign to ourselves or our insurers any rights they may have to pursue any third party and must provide ourselves and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably require.
  9. Please note, we cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss or expense or other sum(s) of any description: (a) which on the basis of the information given to us by you concerning your booking prior to our accepting it, we could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur; or (b) relate to any business.
  10. We will not accept responsibility for services or facilities which were not included on your booking confirmation or where they are not advertised on our website. For example any excursion you book whilst away, or any service or facility which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide for you.
  11. Where it is impossible for you to return to your departure point as per the agreed return date of your single-contract or multi-contract package, due to “unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances”, we shall provide you with any necessary accommodation (where possible, of a comparable standard) for a period not exceeding three nights per person. Please note that the 3-night cap does not apply to persons with reduced mobility, pregnant women or unaccompanied minors, nor to persons needing specific medical assistance, provided we have been notified of these particular needs at least 48 hours before the start of your single-contract or multi-contract package. For the purposes of this clause, “unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances” mean warfare, acts of terrorism, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of serious disease at the travel destination or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes or weather conditions which make it impossible to travel safely back to your departure point.

We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.

  1.   Unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances

Except where otherwise expressly stated in our Booking Conditions we will not be liable or give you a price reduction or compensation if our contractual obligations to you are affected by unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances beyond the control of the party who seeks to rely on them which we or the Travel Supplier in question could not avoid even if all reasonable measures had been taken. These events can include, but are not limited to war, threat of war, civil strife, terrorist activity and its consequences or the threat of such activity, riot, the act of any government or other national or local authority including port or river authorities, industrial dispute, lock closure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, chemical or biological disaster and adverse weather, sea, ice and river conditions and all similar events outside our or the Travel Supplier’s control (“Force Majeure” events). Advice from the Foreign Office to avoid or leave a particular country may constitute unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances.

Assistance in the event of difficulty or unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances

Except where you have booked a single component, we will provide appropriate assistance without undue delay in the event that you experience difficulty including where you are unable to return to your agreed point of departure because of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances which directly prevent you from travelling safely back to your point of departure. Such assistance will extend to providing appropriate information on health services, local authorities and consular assistance; and helping you to make distance communications and to find alternative travel arrangements. We will charge a reasonable fee for such assistance if the difficulty is caused by you intentionally or as a result of your act or omission. In the event such assistance is needed please contact the telephone numbers provided on your confirmation documentation.

  1. Website accuracy

We endeavour to ensure that the details of all products, including prices, displayed on our websites are accurate. However, given the high volume of flights, hotels and other products offered it is inevitable that, in exceptional cases, mistakes will arise. We cannot accept liability for these errors.

In cases where details other than price are materially incorrect we will offer you the choice of continuing with your booking or cancelling with a full refund of money paid on that booking only.

Where inaccuracies relate to the understatement of the price of a specific product you will be offered either a full refund of money paid on that booking only or the opportunity to maintain that booking on receipt of the additional payment which is necessary.

  1. Privacy

As our customer you are in complete control of your travel planning needs. This includes controlling the use of information you provide to us. When you reserve or purchase travel services through us, we provide information about you to the airline, car rental agency, hotel, or other involved third party to ensure the successful fulfilment of your travel arrangements.

Important information: 

Please read this section carefully as it sets out additional rights and obligations relating to your booking.

PASSPORT AND VISA AND HEALTH INFO/REQUIREMENTS

The information in this section is valid for British Citizens only. Non-British Citizens (including: citizens of British Dependent Territories; those who hold their citizenship by virtue of a connection with Gibraltar; British subjects who have a right of abode in the United Kingdom; and EC and other nationals) should consult the Embassy of their destination country and the Home Office Immigration Department regarding any special documentation for the countries they are visiting or for return to the UK. It is your responsibility to check with the applicable Embassy or Consulate to see whether the destination(s) that you are visiting requires a visa, especially if you do not hold a passport marked "British Citizen". If you fail to do so, you will be solely responsible for any cost, loss or damage which you or we incur as a result of your failure.

It is also important to remember to include all transit points of your journey, which may also require you to obtain a visa. Please note that many countries require that your passport is valid for six months beyond the period of your stay. Some countries apply different rules and you should contact the Embassy or Consulate of your destination for relevant current information.

It is vital that you ensure that your passport is legible and intact, any sign of damage could result in a refusal of carriage or entry into your country of destination. If you hold a UK passport and require information in respect of the validity of your passport, procedure and time required to apply for a passport or renew an existing passport, the regulations in respect of minors, or if your passport has been lost or stolen, you can contact the UK Passport Service help line on 0870 521 0410 or on the internet at www.ukpa.gov.uk

It is your responsibility to obtain the appropriate visa for your destination(s) and any applicable transit point. If you require information in respect of current visa requirements, procedure and time required to apply for the applicable visa, you should contact the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Their telephone number is 020 7008 8438 and their website address is www.fco.gov.uk. Please note that specific requirements for specific countries can be complex and subject to change at short notice.

Children not already included on a valid British passport will need to hold their own passport if they are to travel abroad

The child reaches the age of 16; or

• The passport on which the child is included expires; or

• The passport on which the child is included is replaced or an amendment results in the issue of a new passport

The name on the passport must match the name on the ticket, otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid. If, after booking a holiday but before travelling, any member of your party changes their name, e.g. as a result of getting married, we must be notified immediately so that we can endeavour to make the necessary changes to your holiday documentation.

It is important that all travellers to the United States take note of the following:

A visa will be necessary for entry to the United States of America (USA) unless passengers are eligible under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). The VWP allows holders of full British Citizens Passports who have the right of abode in the UK to complete a Visa Waiver Form and submit this on arrival. You must ensure that you comply with all USA Government requirements as per the Visa Waiver Form before confirming your booking.

All British passport holders, including children, travelling to the USA under the VWP will need their own machine-readable passports (MRP). This means that anyone without a MRP, including children who are currently on a parent's passport, will need a visa to travel to the USA. A British Passport is machine-readable when the white strip at the foot of the personal data page (at the back of the passport) bears two lines of print. If there is no white strip, or the white strip is blank, then the passport is not machine-readable.

If you have a serious communicable disease of public health significance including HIV you are not eligible to travel on the Visa Waiver Program, and must possess a valid visa for entry into the United States.

If you have ever been arrested or convicted for any reason in any country, even if the arrest did not lead to a conviction including driving offences, you may require a visa and should consult the US Embassy directly (details are below).

For further details on entry requirements for the USA and the VWP (as there are some restrictions and requirements change from time to time), check the US Embassy website: www.usembassy.org.uk or the Foreign & Commonwealth Office: www.fco.gov.uk

You should seek advice on any vaccinations and precautions that may be compulsory or recommended from a health professional – a GP, practice nurse, pharmacist or travel health clinic – ideally at least 8 weeks before you travel. Further travel advice can be found on www.fitfortravel.scot.nhs.uk and www.nathnac.org. Information about how to get medical treatment abroad and how to get reduced cost, and sometimes free treatment in Europe can be found in the NHS leaflet “Health Advice for Travellers”.

 

AIR/FLIGHT BOOKINGS

All flight, hotel and car rental prices are subject to availability and offers may be withdrawn or amended at any time without prior notification. We accept no liability should any such offer be withdrawn or amended.

 

AIRLINE CODESHARES

Many airlines operate on a codeshare basis with their commercial partners. This means that a flight can be operated on one carrier's behalf by a partner airline and quite possibly bear more than one flight number. This particularly happens within airline consortia eg One World, Sky Team, Star Alliance etc whereby carriers are enabled to offer flights on their partner's aircraft to destinations beyond their existing routes and to utilise their additional services for check in etc.

Flights and services may be operated by a partner carrier on a code share basis or by a substitute supplier at the operator or service supplier's discretion for technical, operational or commercial reasons at any time. Aircraft or transportation type can never be guaranteed and substitutions to equipment type may take place at the airline or supplier's discretion for technical, operational or commercial reasons.

AIR FARES

Whilst we have taken every due care and diligence with the production of our website and price list, there may however be occasions beyond our control where certain fares are withdrawn by the airline. We will not be held responsible if for any reason these fares are withdrawn. No compensation is payable in the event of withdrawal of any fares.

Air fares are not guaranteed until tickets are confirmed and purchased. All fares are subject to confirmation and change prior to ticket issue.

E-TICKETS

Some airlines offer only electronic confirmation of your reservation, or 'e-ticketing', on certain routes. We cannot be held responsible if your e-ticket does not arrive due to an incorrect email address or your junk email settings. You can ensure your e-tickets get to you by adding T to your 'safe list'. You must notify us immediately if you change your email address or contact telephone number after making a booking with The LLA Holidays. In addition, please check that the name on your passport matches the name on your ticket and/or booking confirmation. It is your responsibility to advise us if you have not received your e-ticket confirmation.

FLYING TIMES

In your itinerary, flight times are given for guidance only. All departure/arrival times on your flight ticket are provided by the airlines concerned and are estimates only. They may change due to air traffic control restrictions, weather conditions, operational/maintenance requirements and the requirement for passengers to check in on time.

We are not liable if there is any change to a departure/arrival time previously given to you or shown on your ticket or for any other alteration to your flight by the relevant airline. Also, please note that where a sector of a flight itinerary is not utilised without contacting the carrier directly any remaining sectors may be subject to cancellation without further notification. Where this situation arises we are unable to accept responsibility for any costs incurred. It is for this reason that you are required to reconfirm your flights with the airline in accordance with the airline's applicable reconfirmation deadline. For all air travel it is your responsibility to check the departure and arrival times of your flights at the time of travel.

We are unable to make any special arrangements for you if you are delayed as these matters are at the sole discretion of the airline concerned. Please note that the times shown on your ticket or itinerary are the departure times of the flight. Check-in times, as advised by the carrier or in the airlines' timetable are the latest times at which passengers can be accepted for travel, allowing the necessary time to complete all formalities. Flights cannot be held up for passengers arriving late and no responsibility can be accepted by us or the airline in such cases.

SEAT REQUESTS

We have no control over the airlines' allocation of seats and so, if you have particular seat requests, you should check-in at the airport as early as possible. We cannot guarantee that these requests will be met.

DIRECT FLIGHTS

Please note that a flight described on your flight ticket as "direct" will not necessarily be non-stop. A flight that is described as direct is one where there is no need to change aircraft during the journey.

PREGNANCY AND CHILDREN

Some airlines refuse to carry women who will be 28 weeks or more pregnant on the date of return travel. Please check with the airline concerned as their rules may vary and also consult your doctor. Infants must be 6 weeks old or more to travel by air and must either sit on an adult's lap or occupy an infant seat. Please contact the airline you are travelling with for details of appropriate seats. Generally children aged 2 years or more must occupy a seat. A child must be under 2 years of age on the date of their return flight to be entitled to the infant fare level which is usually 10% of the International Air Transport Association's (or IATA's) published fare. Airlines regard those aged 0-23 months for the entire travel period as infants, and those aged 2-11 years for the entire travel period as children. Any other person is required to pay the adult fare.

GOVERNMENT IMPOSED TAXES, FEES AND CHARGES

The price of your flight may include taxes, fees and charges which are imposed on air transportation by government authorities. They may represent a significant portion of the cost of air travel and are either included in the fare or shown separately on your ticket. You may also be required to pay taxes or fees or other charges not already collected, for example, it is not always possible to include all departure taxes on your ticket(s). In some cases departure taxes must be paid by you locally to the Government of the country you are departing from and are therefore non-refundable by us.

COMMUNITY LIST

In accordance with European regulations we are required to bring to your attention the existence of a 'Community list', which contains details of air carriers that are subject to an operating ban within the European Community. The Community list is available for inspection at http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air/safety/flywell_en.htm

We reserve the right to change your airline in the event that the airline is blacklisted under the EU regulations. Any changes to the actual airline after you have received your tickets will be notified to you as soon as possible and in all cases at check-in or at the boarding gate.

BAGGAGE (SCHEDULED AIRLINES)

In most cases you will be permitted a free checked baggage allowance and a free cabin baggage allowance, the limits of which may differ by airline, class and/or route. It is recommended that cabin baggage is kept to a minimum. Extra charges may apply for checked baggage in excess of the permitted allowance. Please ask the airline for more specific information as these rules vary from time to time. You can refer to www.iata.org/bags for information and links. For safety reasons dangerous articles must not be packed in checked or cabin baggage. Restricted articles include, but are not limited to, compressed gases, corrosives, explosives, flammable liquids and solids, radioactive materials, oxidising materials, poisons, infectious substances and briefcases with installed alarm devices.

BAGGAGE (NO FRILL AIRLINES)

In certain cases, you will be offered the option to book baggage at an extra cost, at the time of the online booking. We do not accept responsibility for any changes made by the airline before departure.

DENIED BOARDING, CANCELLATION OR FLIGHT DELAYS

We cannot accept liability for any delay which is due to ‘unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances’. A delay to or cancellation of your transport service does not automatically entitle you to cancel any other arrangements even where those arrangements have been made in conjunction with your transport. However, you may be entitled to claim under the delay section of your travel insurance policy. Under EU Law, you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from the airline in cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. However, reimbursement in such cases is the responsibility of the airline. If your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to the Air Transport Users' Council on 020 7240 6061 or at the website www.auc.org.uk

ONE WAY TICKETS

Please note that some one way (inbound) tickets shown on our site can only be purchased in conjunction with a valid ticket from the UK. Airlines retain the right to cancel one way tickets that do not adhere to this rule as they may not conform to visa regulations from the countries involved. For further information, please email via the 'Contact Us' section on the site.

HOTEL BOOKINGS

MAP/DISTANCE DISCLAIMER

Please note that the information as to the distance from the city centre and the location of the hotel on the maps provided are for indicative purposes only. If a customer requires the hotel to be within a certain distance from the city centre or near a particular location, the customer should contact the hotel in question prior to booking.

UNAVAILABILITY

Where we are unable to confirm the initial requested accommodation, we will call you to inform you of the details of alternative accommodation or lack of availability. At that time you will have the option to accept the alternative accommodation or get a refund of the total monies paid to us by you for your original booking.

STAR RATINGS

Star ratings are used to symbolise the overall quality, level of service, food standard and range of facilities available in any given hotel property. The criteria applied within each country will vary depending on the specific requirements established by the relevant issuing body and are provided to you for information purposes only. They are not a guarantee or warranty of any kind by us.

HOTEL FACILITIES

Please read the description of the hotel for other hotel policies applicable to your stay. You must be at least 21 years of age to check in to Las Vegas hotels.

Please note that the hotels booked by us for you are not exclusive to our site. We are not responsible for any limitation in facilities because of other hotel guests or their activities. We do not take responsibility for hotel content (including images, facility listings, etc.) displayed on our website. Hotels may change facilities and property features without prior notice and it is the customers' responsibility to confirm facilities directly with the hotel at the time of travel.

LOCAL TAXES NOT INCLUDED IN HOTEL COST

Please note that there may be taxes levied abroad but not paid at the point of purchase that are payable in relation to your hotel booking e.g. local taxes, sales tax etc. Any local taxes will be payable by you directly to the hotel at the time of check in / checkout.

DESCRIPTIONS AND PHOTOGRAPHS

All pictures and descriptions are displayed in good faith. However, in certain circumstances beyond our control accommodation descriptions may be affected, such as sea views, which may be obscured by greenery, such as trees. We try to maintain up to date information on any changes and therefore all details printed should be regarded for general information only. Accommodation categories and star ratings shown on the website are provided by the accommodation, however standards can vary between accommodations of the same class in different countries, it is therefore important that the accommodation details are read in full.

ACCOMMODATION

All accommodation is reserved exclusively for use by the person named as the lead passenger plus the total number of passengers, whether adults or children, as shown on the Invoice / Accommodation Voucher. Unauthorised occupancy may result in the accommodation refusing occupation with immediate cancellation and loss of all monies paid. Most accommodation is sold on a twin/double room basis, however most properties have more twin rooms than doubles. If a double bed is requested, please be aware that this may be two single beds pushed together. Additional beds for triple/quad rooms could either be a pull out sofa bed, foldable bed, rollaway beds, or bunk beds. Self-Catering properties usually do not offer a choice of bed type. Some properties impose a minimum number of nights per stay and bookings may incur a surcharge if less than the minimum period allowed.

GROUP BOOKINGS

Parties of 10 persons or more are classed as a group booking and must not be split into multiple smaller bookings.

CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT

Times are normally around 15.00 – 16.00 on the day of arrival and between 10.00 am and 12.00 hours on the day of departure depending upon property type.

DELAYS

On occasions there may be delays or missed departures, due to the failure of transportation or other circumstances. We cannot be held liable if the accommodation is not available on arrival unless the Property is notified directly using the telephone number provided on the voucher. Refunds will not be given for any no shows.

BUILDING WORK

Due to continuous re-development throughout the world there is always going to be some building work going on somewhere. Provided that we are made aware by the property that any such work is liable to interfere with the enjoyment of your holiday, then we will advise you accordingly. However please be aware that the accommodation has no liability to inform us of any building work in the surrounding area outside their property.

REFUNDS 

Refunds inevitably take some time to process from the Travel Suppliers and you should allow 8 – 12 weeks for the payment to be received back and refunded to the original credit card, or such alternative timescale as required by our legal obligations where you have booked certain package arrangements.

In the event that we are required to apply the results of compensation claims from airlines or other suppliers, we reserve the right to charge a handling fee to cover additional resources needed to process these.

ACCOMMODATION OVER BOOKED ON ARRIVAL

In the very unlikely event that on arrival the property cannot provide the accommodation booked, it is the responsibility of the property to find an alternative property of a similar standard. We accept no responsibility in respect of any costs, losses or damages that may be incurred in connection with relocation of accommodation since such relocation is outside our control.

CAR HIRE BOOKINGS

Minimum Age

All car suppliers have a minimum age to be able to rent without incurring any extra charges, this is normally 25 and above. Drivers between the ages of 21-24 will always incur an extra surcharge which is payable locally, is subject to tax and is non-refundable. These fees can range from 10.00 euros a day in Europe and from US$25.00 to US$50.00 US in the United States. Once you have selected your car please read the car rental rules where you will be able to find the amount payable.

Maximum Age

There are very few locations which have an upper age limit. These can vary from the age of 60 upwards. If you are over the age of 60 it is your responsibility to check with the rental supplier for eligibility. If you fail to check and you are over the age limit you may not be given the car.

Rental Deposit

Rental agencies only accept credit cards for securing your deposit at the rental location. You must use a credit card and it must be the driver's credit card. We will not be liable for any compensation or otherwise if you do not have a credit card at the time of collecting your car and are refused rental by the supplier.

Driving Licence

A valid driving licence is required for all drivers. The licence must be valid at the time of rental and remain valid throughout the rental period. We will not be liable for any compensation or otherwise if you fail to show a valid driver’s licence to the supplier and are refused rental.

British Licence Holders

If you have the new photo id licence you must take the paper counterpart as well. If you do not present both the card and the counterpart, you will not get the vehicle. If your licence is written in Chinese, Russian or any ‘picture' script then you will need to obtain an international driver's permit before you travel from your country of residence. This cannot be obtained in the United Kingdom.

Excess Waiver

Although our rates are fully inclusive there is always an excess to pay. This means in the event of accident/damage or theft, the driver will be expected to pay the first part of the claim. This can vary depending on the car you hire and the destination you are travelling to.

Late Return of Your Vehicle

The rental rate is calculated based on the return time agreed when picking up the vehicle. If the vehicle is kept longer than originally planned, you may be liable for an overcharge.

Rental Agreement

The rental agreement is given to you to sign when you pick up your vehicle. This has all the information about your rental. It is your responsibility to check this document carefully before you sign it and keep a copy. We will not be liable in relation to any breach of this agreement.

Child Safety Seats

Children from their third birthday up to their 12th birthday or up to 135cm in height (whichever is attained sooner) must be restrained in a suitable seat in the rear of the vehicle. The law states that it is the responsibility of the driver of the vehicle to comply.

Cancellations and Alterations to car hire

If you or any member of your party wishes to cancel or alter a booking, written notification must be given to us. The date of cancellation will be the date we receive the written notice. In the event of cancellation, the following cancellation charges will apply.

Your car hire is supplied by third party agencies. These third party agencies will have additional cancellation policies that may be applicable and in addition your chosen car hire company will typically have its own cancellation policy. We will pass on any such policies or charges that the car hire company or third party agency has imposed in relation to cancellation to the customer PLUS £35 ADMINISTRATION FEE. In the absence of the car hire company having its own policy, the cancellation fee charged by us will be £35 per booking.

Refunds inevitably take some time to process and you should allow 8–12 weeks for the payment to be received back and refunded to the original credit card.

MAP/DISTANCE DISCLAIMER

Please note that the information as to the distance from the city centre and the location of the hotel on the maps provided are for indicative purposes only. If a customer requires the hotel to be within a certain distance from the city centre or near a particular location, the customer should contact the hotel in question prior to booking.

TELEPHONE BOOKINGS

Bookings made on the telephone will always incur a supplementary charge to cover the additional resource costs involved. It should be noted that our best offers and prices will be available online.

 

CARRYING YOUR BOOKING DOCUMENTATION

You should ensure that you travel with your booking confirmations, e-tickets and any other travel documentation (including your passport) at all times. We will not be liable for any supplier not providing you with the booked product or service if you do not produce such documentation.

CANCELLING YOUR INSURANCE POLICY

All insurance premiums are payable in full at the point of sale and are sold incorporating a 14 day cooling off period after which time some policies may be non-refundable. The 14 day cooling off period only applies if you have not travelled or made any claim under the insurance policy. It is your responsibility to check the specific terms of the insurance policy at the time of purchase.

NO SHOW

If you have a booking for any of our products or services, including flights, car hire, accommodation and packages, but you do not show up to check-in, collect the car or otherwise do not avail yourself of such product or service, you will not be entitled to any refund.

SPECIAL ASSISTANCE

If you are disabled or incapacitated or of limited mobility or require special assistance for any reason, we require that you notify us at the time of making your booking. If these requirements change before your trip you must inform us. We will not subsequently be liable to you for any losses you may incur in the event that we or our suppliers are unable to accommodate your requirements.

WEATHER

We cannot be held responsible for any disruption to your trip due to bad or unusual weather conditions.

SPECIAL REQUESTS

Please advise us of any special requests and we will pass these on to the relevant supplier. However, we cannot guarantee your special request as we do not have any direct control over the manner in which the services are provided.

TELEPHONE CALLS

We reserve the right to randomly record telephone calls to ensure that our customer service is constantly reviewed.

CREDIT/DEBIT CARD CHARGES

In line with recent changes to legislation we no longer charge fees for payment by debit or credit cards.

YOUR BEHAVIOUR

It is your responsibility to ensure that you and the members of your group do not behave in a way which is inappropriate or causes danger, distress, offence or damage to others or which risks damage to property belonging to others (including but not limited to drunkenness and air rage) whilst on your trip. You will not be eligible for any refunds, payments of compensation and/or any reimbursement of any cost or expenses you may incur if your booking is terminated as a result of behaviour.

PASSENGER TRAVEL AGES

When travelling on an arrangement including hotel accommodation, no person under the age of 18 years will be allowed to travel independently. The exception is for Las Vegas where visitors are required to be 21 years old if unaccompanied. The passenger's age relates to the whole of the period when they are away including the day of return. When travelling on a flight-only basis, passengers can travel alone if they are aged 14 years or over subject to airline approval, providing they can travel unassisted. Please note if they are aged 14 - 15, a parent or legal guardian must accompany them to check-in, and a valid photo-id in addition to the country specific documentation must be presented. We strongly recommend that parents or guardians of unaccompanied young persons remain in the airport until the flight has departed. Airlines reserve the right not to accept unaccompanied minors under 14 years of age for carriage. If an under 14 years old needs to travel unaccompanied, please contact us by email via our support request system to request assistance before making a booking.

INFANT AGES

Infants must be under 2 years old on the return date of travel. If your child celebrates his or her 2nd birthday while on holiday, you must book and pay the appropriate child fare. Charges for infants vary depending on the route and length of flight and will be advised in the booking process. Infants are not entitled to their own seat and must travel on an adult's lap. If you require a seat for your infant to sit separately you will need to purchase a child's ticket at the appropriate fare. Infants do not always receive a personal baggage allowance as this varies from carrier to carrier.

ADULT FARES

Children must be 2 - 11 years old on the return date of travel to qualify for any applicable child fare reduction. Children aged 12 years and older pay the full fare and have their own seat and also have a full baggage allowance.

BABIES

An infant must be more than 7 days old to travel on an aircraft, for health and safety reasons.
