Requirement can change and it is your responsibility to ensure that you comply with applicable passport, visa and health requirements and take all necessary documents with you to gain access to
any country or region to which you make travel arrangements. If you fail to do so, you will be solely responsible for any cost, loss or damage which you or the company incurs as a result of your failure.

12. Supplier’s Conditions
Please note that, as between you and any of the suppliers whose services form part of your booking, the supplier’s standard terms and conditions will apply. This is particularly important in the case of “other holiday arrangements” where the company acts only as a booking agent between you and the relevant suppliers. The
Supplier’s standard may limit or exclude liability, often in accordance with international conventions. Copies of these conditions may be requested in writing, but up to 28 days must be allowed for delivery.
Please note that a flight described as “direct” will not necessarily be non-stop. All departure/arrival times are provided by the airlines concerned and are estimated only. They may change due to air traffic control restrictions, weather, operational/maintenance requirements and the requirement for passengers to check in on time. The company is not liable if there is any change to a departure/arrival time previously given to you or shown on your ticket. It is for this reason that all clients are advised to reconfirm their flights, with the airline, 72 hours prior to departure. The company is also unable to make any special arrangements for you if you are delayed, these matters are in the sole discretion of the airline concerned. You ticket is your document of travel and the information on the ticket is deemed correct unless advised by you within 72 hours of departure. All prices shown are subject to availability.
