You can cancel your booking without paying cancellation charges if the performance of your 

package, or the carriage of passengers to your destination, is significantly affected by 

unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances. In such circumstances, we will arrange for 

your booking to be terminated and for you to receive a full refund. We will observe advice 

provided by the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office. 

5. If You Change Your Booking 

If, after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you wish to change your travel 

arrangements in any way, for example your chosen departure date or accommodation, we 

will do our utmost to make these changes but it may not always be possible. Any request for 

changes to be made must be in writing from the person who made the booking or your 

travel agent. You will be asked to pay an administration charge of (£50), and any further 

cost we incur in making this alteration. 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. Note: Certain travel arrangements may not be changeable after a reservation 

has been made and any alteration request could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% 

of that part of the arrangements. 

You can transfer your booking to another person, who satisfies all the conditions that apply 

to this booking, by giving us notice in writing as soon as possible and no later than 7 days 

before departure. Both you and the new traveller are responsible for paying all costs we 

incur in making the transfer. 

6. If we cancel your booking 

We reserve the right to cancel your booking. We will not cancel less than 90 days before 

your departure date, except for unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances, or failure by 

you to pay the final balance, or because the minimum number required for the package to 

go ahead hasn’t been reached1. Unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances mean a 

situation beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even 

if all reasonable measures had been taken. 

The minimum number required will be provided to you with the holiday description, along 

with the time limit for us to tell you if the package must be cancelled1.] 

If your holiday is cancelled you can either have a refund of all monies paid or accept an 

alternative holiday of comparable standard from us if we offer one (we will refund any price 

difference if the alternative is of a lower value). 

In the event a refund is paid to you, we will: 

provide a full refund of your travel insurance premiums if you paid them to us and can show 

that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy. 

pay compensation as detailed below except where the cancellation is due to unavoidable 

and extraordinary circumstances (see definition above). 

7. If we change your booking (a) Changes to the price 

We can change your holiday price after you’ve booked, only in certain circumstances: 

Changes in the price of the carriage of passengers resulting from changes to the cost of fuel 

or other power sources, the level of taxes or fees imposed by third parties including tourist 

taxes, landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports or 

exchange rates mean that the price of your travel arrangements may change after you have 

booked. However, there will be no change within 20 days of your departure. 

We will absorb, and you will not be charged for, any increase equivalent to 2% of the price 

of your travel arrangements, which excludes insurance premiums and any amendment 

charges. You will be charged for the amount over and above that. If this results in an 

increase equivalent to more than 8% of the price of your travel arrangements, you will have 

the option of accepting a change to another holiday if we are able to offer one (we will 

refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value), or cancelling and receiving 

a full refund of all monies paid, except for any amendment charges. Should you decide to 

cancel: 1) you must do so within the time period shown on your final invoice 2) We will 

provide a refund of insurance premiums paid to us if you can show that you are unable to 

transfer or reuse your policy. 

Should the price of your holiday go down due to the cost changes mentioned above, then 

any refund due will be paid to you. We will deduct from this refund our administrative 

expenses incurred. Please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local 

currency and some apparent changes have no impact on the price of your travel due to 

contractual and other protection in place. 

(b) Changes other than the price 

It is a term of your booking that we are able to make changes to any aspect of your booking. 

If the change is insignificant, we will ensure that you are notified about it. Examples of 

insignificant changes include alteration of your outward/return flights by less than 12 hours, 

changes to aircraft type, change of accommodation to another of the same or higher 

standard, changes of carriers. 

If we are constrained by circumstances beyond our control to alter significantly any of the 

main characteristics of the travel services that make up your package you will have the 

rights set out below. 

• We will contact you and you will have the choice of accepting the change or having a 

refund of all monies paid. You can also accept an alternative holiday, where we offer one 

(we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value). We will tell you the 

procedure for making your choice. Please read any notification of changes carefully and 

respond promptly as if you do not respond to us within the timescale given your booking 

may be cancelled. 

• If you choose to accept a refund: 

we will provide a full refund of your travel insurance premiums if you paid them to us 

and can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy. 

we will pay compensation as detailed below except where the significant change is due to 

unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances, which means a situation beyond our control, 

the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures 

had been taken. 

The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled 

to do so. 

8. Our Liability to You 

You must inform us without undue delay of any failure to perform or improper performance 

of the travel services included in this package. If any of the travel services included in your 

package are not performed in accordance with the contract, or are improperly performed, 

by us or the travel service suppliers, and this has affected the enjoyment of your travel 

arrangements, you may be entitled to an appropriate price reduction or compensation or 

both. We will not be liable where any failure to perform or improper performance of the 

travel services is due to: you or another member of your party; or a third party unconnected 

with the provision of the travel services in the package and is unforeseeable or unavoidable; 

or unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances, which means a situation beyond our 

control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable 

measures had been taken. 

Our liability, except in cases involving death, injury or illness, shall be limited to a maximum 

of three times the cost of your travel arrangements. Our liability will also be limited in 

accordance with and/or in an identical manner to 

a) The contractual terms of the companies that provide the travel services that make up 

your package. These terms are incorporated into this booking; and 

b) Any relevant international convention, for example the Montreal Convention in respect 

of travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in 

respect of travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of 

accommodation, which limit the amount of and conditions under which compensation can 

be claimed for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss, damage and delay to luggage. We 

are to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitation of the extent of or the conditions 

under which compensation is to be paid under these or any conventions. 

You can ask for copies of the travel service contractual terms, or the international 

conventions, from our Head Office. Under EU law (Regulation 261/2004) you have rights in 

some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from your airline in cases of denied 

boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details will be publicised at EU airports and 

available from airlines. However, reimbursement in such cases will not automatically entitle 

you to a refund of your holiday cost from us. Your right to a refund and/or compensation 

from us is set out in these booking conditions. If any payments to you are due from us, any 

payment made to you by the airline or any other service provider will be deducted. 

If it is impossible to ensure your return as scheduled due to unavoidable and extraordinary 

circumstances, we will bear the cost of necessary accommodation, if possible, of equivalent 

category, for a maximum of three nights. The limit doesn’t apply to persons with reduced 

mobility and any person accompanying them, pregnant women and unaccompanied minors, 

or persons in need of specific medical assistance, provided that you notified us of these 

needs at least 48 hours before the start of your holiday.

excursions or activities whilst on holiday.

Organiser’s Licence number 12242, issued by the Civil Aviation Authority, Gatwick Airport 

South, West Sussex, RH6 0YR, UK, telephone 0333 103 6350, email claims@caa.co.uk. When 

you buy an ATOL protected flight or flight inclusive package 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. 

We will provide you with the services listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable 

alternative). In some cases, where we aren’t 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 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 nonprovision 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.
