BOOKING CONDITIONS

Completely Travel Ltd. whose registered office is at  18 Hyde Gardens, Eastbourne, East Sussex BN21 4PT  (Completely Travel Ltd from now on referred to as CT)

CT holds Air Tour Operators Licence number 9937, issued by the Civil Aviation Authority for which it is fully bonded.

The ATOL Regulations are The Civil Aviation Air Travel Organisers Licensing Regulations 1995.

The Package Travel Regulations are the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.

The air holidays on this website and in our brochure are ATOL protected since we hold an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence granted by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is 9937 . In the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not stranded abroad, and will arrange to refund any money you have paid to us for an advance booking. For further information, visit the ATOL website at www.atol.org.uk.   

Your Financial Protection
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.

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.

We will endeavour to satisfactorily resolve any complaint within 28 days of receipt of initial complaint.

6. Behaviour
CT and its suppliers retain the right to terminate your travel arrangements if your behaviour in our opinion or the opinion of a supplier is considered likely to cause distress, damage, danger or annoyance, in the event of such termination CT will not accept any liability for any resulting costs you may incur.

7. Flight Delays
Unfortunately flight delays do sometimes occur. These are normally beyond our control and any resultant arrangements will be the responsibility of the airline. If you have taken out personal travel insurance then you might be eligible to claim compensation for the delay under some circumstances.

8. Travel Insurance
CT will need proof of your travel insurance, Name of insurer, your policy number and a 24 hour emergency contact number.

9. Travel Details
The arrangements we make on your behalf as described at the time of booking are all subject to availability.

10. Activities
In the event, at our (or our local suppliers) discretion, we consider that local conditions are unsatisfactory we reserve the right to change, without any liability whatsoever, the itinerary or cancel any excursion. We shall endeavour to advise you of any changes to itinerary or cancellation prior to departure, in which event a full voucher refund or change of departure date at no additional cost becomes effective.

11. The Contract
Your contract is with Completely Travel Ltd whose registered office is at  18 Hyde Gardens, Eastbourne, East Sussex BN21 4PT.

12. The Payment

A standard deposit of £275.00 per passenger must be paid at the time of booking, unless any larger deposit requirement is advised at the time of booking.

The balance of payment due must be received by us at least 12 weeks before your date of departure. If you are booking less than 12 weeks before departure then full payment of the cost of the arrangements must be made at the time of booking. If payment is not received within these timescales then we may cancel the arrangements and apply cancellation charges as detailed in Section 16 following.

If payments are received within these timescales then we will send your travel documentation to you at least 14 days prior to your departure or if this is not possible then we will make special arrangements for them to be collected at the airport prior to departure. If you are paying by credit card there will be a 1.5% surcharge. There is no charge for settlement of monies due by debit card or bank transfer.  Please note that we no longer acccept payments by cheque.

13. Price
We reserve the right to alter the price of any arrangement prior to you making a booking, however once we have issued the confirmation then the price of your arrangements will not be altered.

14. Surcharges (after booking)
Once you have booked, the price of your holiday travel arrangements may be varied due to changes in transportation costs such as fuel, scheduled airfares and any other airline cost changes which are part of the contract between airlines (and their agents), the tour operator or organiser, and also in respect of government action such as changes in VAT or any other government imposed changes and currency changes in relation to an exchange rate variation. In the case of any small variation, an amount equivalent to 2% of the price of your travel arrangements, and any amendment charges, will be absorbed or retained.

For larger variations, this 2% will still be absorbed for increases but not retained from refunds. In either case there will be an administration charge of £1 per person together with an amount to cover any commissions due. In the unlikely event that this means that you have to pay an increase of more than 10% of the price of your holiday travel arrangements, you may cancel your booking and receive a full refund of all monies paid, except for any amendment charges. Should you decide to cancel for this reason, you must exercise your right to do so within 14 days from the issue date printed on your final invoice. 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.  In the event of airline failure where flights have been booked and paid for at the time of deposit, we will endeavour to find a suitable alternative.  Any additional charges will be chargeable to you.

15. Special requests
We will endeavour to pass on any requests e.g. flight seat or hotel room locations, special diets, made at the time of booking and at least 30 days before departure. We regret that such requests cannot be guaranteed and therefore compensation claims will not be considered if your request is not honoured.

16. Cancellation by you
We start to incur costs for your travel arrangements from the time your arrangements are confirmed, so if you cancel your arrangements we make a charge and the nearer to departure the cancellation is, the higher the cancellation charge will be. Your cancellation can only be accepted in writing and will be effective from the date it is received. Please note that in the event of cancellation any insurance premiums paid are non-refundable.

Cancellation charges will be in accordance with the following scale. Time before departure when cancellation is received cancellation charge as a % of arrangement price excluding insurance, plus any additional charges incurred from our suppliers.

Days Loss
More than 56 Loss of deposit
56 to 29 days 50%
28 to 15 days 70%
14 to 0 days 100%

The exception to the above is for those who have booked non refundable holidays.  These monies are paid up front at time of booking and are non refundable regardless of cancellation date.

17. Changes by you
You should advise us in writing of any changes you wish to make to your confirmed arrangements no less than 56 days before departure. We will do our best to make the change you request to the arrangements subject to availability and the payment of a £50 per person administration charge plus any additional costs arising from the change. Your attention is particularly drawn to the charges incurred by cancellation, itinerary amendment and name changes in relation to bookings made with scheduled airlines and low cost carriers.

18. Cancellation by us
In the unlikely event that cancellation of your arrangement becomes necessary we undertake whenever possible to advise you prior to the time when your balance payment is due. Subject to availability you will be offered the choice of alternative arrangements of comparable standard or a full refund of all payments made. Should notice of cancellation unavoidably fall within the final payment period of 84 days before departure then compensation will be paid within the scale given in section 20 below unless the reason for cancellation falls within the definition of force majeure in our general terms and conditions or from your failure to meet the payment deadline. All group departures are subject to a minimum number of passengers. Normally this number is 15, but does vary from tour to tour. All group departures are reviewed at least four weeks prior to departure which is the latest date that a tour would be cancelled on account of low numbers. If we have to cancel a departure you will be offered an alternative holiday.

19. Changes by us
If we find it necessary to make a material change to your arrangements before departure then we will notify you as soon as possible. A material change is one for example involving a change of destination resort, a change to lower grade accommodation, a change of confirmed flight times by more than 12 hours or a change of departure airport other than between Gatwick and Heathrow. A change of airline or aircraft type or the introduction of en-route stops or destination airport plus onward transportation which results in an arrival delay if less than 12 hours will not be considered a material change.

You will be offered the option to accept the material change or accept an alternative arrangement subject to availability and price adjustment or to cancel the arrangements with loss of deposit. If a material change is notified to you less than 8 weeks before departure then whichever option you choose you will be paid compensation on the scale below except that no compensation will be payable where the change arises due to force majeur as defined in the general terms and conditions.

20. Compensation for cancellation or change by us
If we cancel or make a material change to your holiday then compensation will be paid under section 18 and 19 on the following scale.

Time before departure when change or cancellation is received. Compensation to be paid per person.

Days Amount
More than 56 NIL
56 to 43 days £ 5
42 to 29 days £10
28 to 15 days £20

21. Compensation

Any claim for compensation should be made as advised in our general terms and conditions.

22. Our liability

If you have a justified complaint and have followed the complaints procedure described in our terms and conditions then we will pay you reasonable compensation. We accept responsibility for the acts and/or omissions of our employees, agents and suppliers, except where they lead to injury or illness.
