and Transit points, checked for Medical requirements and are aware of the need for
Travel Insurance to cover against Medical illness abroad and cancellation due to
medical reasons, for all persons contained within the reservation.

a cancellation and may result in 100% cancellation charges being applied. There
may be certain services such as Car Hire that may permit a date change or cancellation
at a charge, this will depend on the conditions of the service provider and the

process as to whether your transaction has been completed, you should telephone
our Internet reservation team, to check that the transaction is complete and obtain
the booking reference number.
8. It is a condition that you reconfirm all onward and return flights, no later
than 72 hours prior to departure; this will avoid cancellation of booked seats and
will update you on schedule changes.
These are our general conditions of sale and others may apply, including the Airline

information you require.
A non-refundable and non-transferable deposit is payable
at the time of booking. The balance of your booking must be paid 1-0 days after no later than 10
weeks before your departure and a lot of circumstances sooner.
This date will be shown on your booking confirmation.
Please note we do not send reminders.

arrangements may be cancelled and you may forfeit your deposit.
Whilst your deposit secures your reservation it does
not always guarantee the final cost of your travel arrangements (Taxes, fuel surcharges
and airfare frequently go up)..
Prices are subject to change and a fare is guaranteed
only when your travel documents are issued. It is therefore to your advantage to
finalise payment as soon as possible.
Tickets & vouchers cannot be issued until full payment
has been received.
Payment can be taken by bank transfer* (our favourite), cash, cheque, credit card (Visa,
Mastercard), debit card (Visa Debit), or American Express.
Payment by UK credit card will be subject to a 2.5% surcharge,
however payment by a debit card (Maestro, Visa
Debit) will not be subject to any charge.
Payments by American Express are subject to a 3% surcharge.

using their credit/debit card we will require written authorisation by the cardholder
with a signature and a copy of the card.
Personal cheques require 15 working days to clear. If
our bank returns any cheque to us unpaid, a £15 charge will be levied.
|Bank transfers are our favourite method of payment. They attract no bank fees within the UK (and a minimal amount within Europe), can be done digitally or on the phone with your bank and take 2 to 3 working days to come through. We are fans. Also they keep our costs down which we can then transfer to you, our lovely customers.

us for an advance booking. For further information please visit the ATOL website

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
We, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL Certificate, will provide you with the
services listed on the ATOL Certificate (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.
