- Many of the services that make up your travel booking are provided by Service Providers. The Service Provider provides these services in accordance with their own terms and conditions. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the supplier’s liability to you.
- We will endeavor to contract with the optimum Service Providers and to ensure that you receive the services you have contracted for. However, we cannot guarantee and therefore do not accept responsibility for the service provided by the Service Providers or information supplied to us by Service Providers. It is your responsibility to confirm all information obtained from us directly or indirectly, including contained on or linked from our Website with the Service Provider.

It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with these conditions.
- If for any reason, any Service Provider is unable to provide the services for which you have contracted, your remedy lies against that Service Provider, and not against us.

- The Service Providers and we reserve the right to substitute any document or service contracted for.
- You are responsible for obtaining all passports, visa and health information required.

- Insurance. Many of the problems for which we are not and cannot be held responsible for can be insured against. We urge you to take out insurance to provide adequate cover for medical expenses, personal accident, loss of baggage, curtailment or cancellation of trip and your inability to travel because of health, weather or other causes. Please note that there are many insurance providers and exclusions to coverage of insurance. It is your responsibility to be familiar with the insurance coverage purchased and ensure that the coverage meets your travel needs. Insurance has to be purchased and paid for in full as soon as the booking is made to become fully effective.
- Specials. “Specials” may be available for a limited time. It is your responsibility to check with us whether a “special” displayed on our Website is still available. There may be particular terms and conditions that apply to “specials”. It is your responsibility to contact us or the Service Provider of the “special” to determine whether any particular terms and conditions apply.
You must pay for “specials” booked by you and confirmed by us within the time specified in the “special”. Failure to pay for the “special” within this time may result in cancellation of the booking. We are not responsible for loss incurred due to cancellation in these circumstances.
- Special Requests. If you have any special requests, you must advise us in writing at the time of the booking and clearly note it on booking. We will endeavor to pass any reasonable requests to the Service Provider. We do not guarantee that your special request will be fulfilled.
