6. THE GLOBAL TRAVEL GROUP PLC
Where the Global Travel Group Plc is acting as the operator in respect of the travel product specified we will provide their full tour operator terms and conditions relating to your holiday booking upon request at any time. You can also view them here.
6.1 LATE ARRIVALS / DELAYS
It is your responsibility to arrive at all departure points at the final times specified in the tickets and/or itineraries supplied. You must check –in good time. 3 hours for Intercontinental Flights, 2 hours for European flights and 90 minutes for UK domestic services is the recommended check-in times prior to your flight departure.
We do not accept the responsibility for the consequences for your late or non arrivals as specified above.
If you are booking connecting rail/coach/air etc services to the departure airport yourself, we advise to book flexible tickets in case that the departure airport times that you have booked with us, changes as a result of new slot times/new timetables etc which does and can happen at any time and is outside of our control.
Passports, Visas, Health Requirements and Driving Licence’s
You are responsible for the provision of all necessary valid documents including entry visas.
We reserve the right not to accept bookings from clients who are not insured against such holiday or travel risks as we may from time to time specify.
Prior to travelling abroad, you are advised to study the information given in DHSS leaflet “Protect your Health Abroad” which is available on request. You should contact your local GP surgery for vaccination advice.
Thankfully these are rare; however in the very unlikely event of anything not running to plan whilst on holiday, or you are dissatisfied with any aspect of it, you must report the fact locally to your hotel or your operators local representatives or suppliers.
In our experience most things can be resolved whilst you are on holiday to prevent your holiday being spoilt. If your hotel can’t fix the issue for you, you should contact the operator’s staff or follow the instructions in your travel documents to give the operator the opportunity to resolve it for you.
If you can’t reach the local agents/representatives, or things are still not satisfactory to you; call us or contact us here in the UK. We’d rather help put things right if we can while you are on holiday, rather than when it’s too late after your holiday!
Any complaints in respect of the travel product specified must be made in writing within 28 days of the end of the holiday or journey concerned. It is unreasonable to take no action whilst on holiday and then complain on your return.
As retail agents for our various suppliers we will pass your comments to them and forward to you their written response. As a guide a full response to any complaint should be given to you from the supplier within 28 days of them receiving your complaint.
