7. IF WE CHANGE YOUR BOOKING DETAILS
We hope that we will not have to make any change to your holiday but, because your holidays are planned many months in advance, we sometimes do need to make changes. We will let you know about any important changes to holidays shown on our Website when you book. If you have already booked and in any case before the start of the package, we will let you know about any changes as soon as we can.
Flight timings shown by us on the Website are for guidance only and may change. Where we are unable to provide a seat option that you have paid for we will refund the amount you have paid. Your booking confirmation will show the latest planned flight timings.
7.1. Major changes to your holiday
Occasionally and before the start of the package, we have to make major changes to your holiday with us or we may not be able to fulfil your special requirements which we have accepted.
Major changes to your holiday for which we will pay compensation using the scale shown below (unless the change is for an Unavoidable and extraordinary circumstance), may include the following changes:
(i) changes of the main characteristics of the travel services:
the travel destination(s), itinerary and periods of stay, with dates and, where accommodation is included, the number of nights included;
the means, characteristics and categories of transport, the points, dates and time of departure and return, the duration and places of intermediate stops and transport connections· A delay to your flight that we need to make within 24 hours before you are due to depart will not be considered a major change unless the delay is for more than 24 hours;
the location, main features and, where applicable, tourist category of the accommodation under the rules of the country of destination;
the meal plan;
visits, excursion(s) or other services included in the total price agreed for the package;
the approximate size of the group, where it is not apparent from the context whether any of the travel services will be provided to you as part of a group;
where your benefit from other tourist services depends on effective oral communication, the language in which those services will be carried out;
whether the trip or holiday is generally suitable for persons with reduced mobility and, upon your request, precise information on the suitability of the trip or holiday taking into account your needs
These changes are only examples and there may be other significant changes which constitute major changes.
If we tell you about any of these major changes or inability to fulfil your special requirements that we have already accepted after we have confirmed your holiday booking and before the start of the package, you may either accept the proposed change or terminate the Agreement without paying a termination. In case you choose to terminate the Agreement you are entitled either to (i) accept a replacement holiday from us of at least equivalent standard or superior quality or (ii) if we are not able to offer you one of equivalent or superior quality, accept a replacement holiday from us of a lower standard and recover from us the difference in price between the holiday originally purchased and the lower standard holiday, or (iii) cancel your holiday with us and receive a full refund of all monies paid.
You must let us know your choice within 21 days, where feasible, and in case within 2 days, as of receiving our communication. In the event that you do not inform us we shall assume that you have chosen to terminate the Agreement and receive a full refund of all monies paid. In this case you are also entitled to compensation as follows:
Period before departure when a major change or cancellation is notified by us
Compensation payable per booking
We will only make one compensation payment for each booking.
If you choose a replacement holiday, the terms and conditions applicable to your holiday will not change and these Terms still apply to your new booking. Exceptions may apply for example, payment date changes and changes to refundable or non-refundable accommodation.
In February 2005 a new Europe-wide law relating to denied boarding, delays and cancellation of flights came into force. This law granted rights to passengers including in certain circumstances the right to cancel their flight and receive reimbursement of the cost of the flight from their airline. Full details of these rights are publicized at EU airports and is also available from affected airlines.
8. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING DETAILS
You must ensure all names and details are entered correctly at the time of booking. Please notify us as soon as possible in writing and by phone if there is something that you need to correct (or if you don’t receive a booking confirmation within 24 hours of making your booking).
8.1. Transfer of the Agreement to another traveler
After giving us notice on a durable medium at least 7 days before the start of the package, you may transfer your booking to another person provided that you authorise the change in writing and the new traveller accepts the transfer and agrees to comply with the Terms.
We will charge an amendment fee to change a traveller on a booking to cover our costs of making such change in accordance with the table set out below.
Please note that if you wish to transfer your booking to another person, in some circumstances this may be treated as a cancellation by the flight or accommodation provider and you may be charged up to 100% of the original cost of your holiday in accordance with Section 9 , we will inform you of this at the time if this is the case.
Charges will be added to the new booking confirmation. In case the new lead passenger or you fail to pay, both of you will be responsible for the payment of any balance due on that new booking confirmation.
8.2. Bookings details changes
If, after your booking confirmation has been issued, you wish to change your holiday in any way, for example your chosen departure date or accommodation, any request for changes to be made must be in writing and as soon as possible from the lead passenger.
In case the changes are possible, you will be asked to pay an amendment fee, in accordance with the table set out below. We will notify you of the amount of the amendment fee when you contact us. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made, and you should contact us as soon as possible.
We will try to arrange for these changes to be made but it may not always be possible. Depending on when you inform us, some changes may be treated by us as a cancellation of your existing holiday and a request to book a new holiday, or in some instances, the amount of change and applicable fees may mean that a cancellation and rebook is a better option, in any case we will inform you about such circumstances.
In the event that you wish to make a change to your accommodation, if a non-refundable accommodation was chosen originally, you shall remain liable to pay 100% of the cost of the original accommodation.
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.
Please note that flight options are non-refundable but may be amended in certain circumstances, subject to payment of the amendment fees and other associated costs listed in this section 8. Certain extras, such as transfers, excursions, theme park tickets and airport extras may be non-refundable. We will make any non-refundable bookings clear when you book those arrangements. Please check with us if you are unsure at the time of booking.

We have taken all reasonable care to make sure that all the services which make up your holiday advertised by us are provided by efficient and reputable businesses. We are responsible for the performance of the travel services included in the Agreement, irrespective of whether those services are to be performed by us or by other travel service providers.

You shall also be entitled to receive appropriate compensation from us for any damage which you sustain as a result of any lack of conformity. You shall not be entitled to compensation for damages if we prove that the lack of conformity is (a) attributable to you or (b) attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the travel services included in the Agreement and is unforeseeable or unavoidable or (c) due to unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances.

Where the proposed alternative arrangements result in a package of lower quality than that specified in the Agreement, we shall grant you an appropriate travel reduction. You may reject the proposed alternative arrangements only if they are not comparable to what was agreed in the Agreement or the price reduction granted is inadequate.
11.5. Where a lack of conformity substantially affects the performance of the package and we have failed to remedy it within a reasonable period set by you, you may terminate the Agreement without paying a termination fee and, where appropriate, request, in accordance with Section 11.2, price reduction and/or compensation for damages. If it is impossible to make alternative arrangements or you reject the proposed alternative arrangements in accordance with the last sentence of Section 11.4, you are, where appropriate, entitled to price reduction and/or compensation for damages in accordance with Section 11.3 without terminating the Agreement.

We confirm to you that we have acquired a valid insurance policy, under which our insurers have agreed to reimburse you in the event of our insolvency, for the monies you have paid to us in respect of your holiday.

Please note such insurance policies do not have to be purchased via us or any third party we may recommend.
Insurance, excursions, tours or any other products and services booked independently from the Website (“Add-ons” & “Tours”) that you may choose to book or pay for directly either with a third party before your holiday, or whilst you are on holiday/in resort do not form part of your holiday provided or arranged by us.

We are not responsible for the provision of Extras or for anything that happens when Extras are being provided to you by the operator and/or supplier as the case may be.
Any extras booked directly with us on or through our website or via our contact center will be covered by our agreement with you.
14. ONLINE CHECK-IN
All customers should check-in online on the airlines’ website before they travel. You will be able to check in online for your flight prior to departure via the airlines’ website. Check the relevant websites for online check-in opening and closing times. Usually online check in is offered 48-24 hours prior to departure date.

We reserve the right to refuse to accept you as a customer or continue dealing with you if we, or another person in authority, believe your behavior is disruptive, causes unnecessary inconvenience, is threatening or abusive, you damage property, you upset, annoy, disturb, or put any other traveller or our staff or agents at the point of departure or resort in any risk or danger, on the telephone, in writing or in person.
If the captain of your flight or any of the cabin crew or ground staff (driver, guide, escort) believe that you could be disruptive or that you are suffering from a contagious disease, they can also refuse to let you proceed with your travel arrangements, restrict your movements on board, or disembark you from an aircraft.
If you are disruptive and prevented from boarding your outbound flight, we will treat your booking as cancelled by you from that moment, and you will have to pay cancellation charges as set out in Section 9 . If this occurs overseas then you will become responsible for your own return home and any other members of your group who cannot or will not travel without you. We will not be liable for any refund, or compensation or any costs or expenses you incur.
If you are refused carriage because of your behaviour, or you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, we may pass on your details and date of the refusal of carriage to other airlines for their information.
