Standard Coach Terms & Conditions

It is important that you read the following booking conditions. These Booking Conditions form the basis of your contract with us. Please read these sections carefully as they apply to all bookings you make with us unless otherwise specified. All holidays are operated by Just Go! Holidays.

1. HOLIDAY PAYMENT: When you make a booking you must pay a deposit for every person named on the booking. On some SuperValue and Themed breaks, full payment is required at the time of booking. Deposits per person and the balance due dates (the period before the departure date on which your full balance normally becomes due) are:


Coach Holiday Type Deposit Balance due date
UK mainland holidays £50 4 weeks before departure
National Trust & other partnership holidays £100 6 weeks before departure
Continental, Ireland, Isle of Man, Jersey & Guernsey holidays £100 6 weeks before departure
Continental (14 days or more) £250 8 weeks before departure

If you cannot make a payment by card at the time of booking, please speak to one of our Reservations Assistants to discuss other options. You can make payments against your balance anytime between making the booking and the balance due date. If the balance is not paid on time we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you and apply cancellation charges as set out in clause 3 below. For bookings made after the balance due date the full amount is due at the time of booking. Please note: a 2% charge applies to all payments made by credit card.

2. OUR AGREEMENT: A contract is formed when we issue to you the notice of booking and terms and conditions. It is important you read through these and any other documents you receive and advise us of any inaccuracy within 14 days of the document date. By accepting the booking is correct you agree to our terms and conditions as enclosed.

We regret we cannot accept any liability if we are not notified of any inaccuracy in any document within 14 days of our sending it out. This contract and all matters arising out of it will be governed by English law and will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

3. HOLIDAY CANCELLATION BY YOU: If you want to cancel your booking after we have confirmed it with you either verbally, over the telephone or online, you can do so over the phone or in writing. If you cancel your booking, we will not refund any insurance premium you may have paid and cancellation charges are based on the following scales:


UK mainland holidays
More than 4 weeks prior to departure: We refund the cost of your holiday less your deposit
4 weeks or less prior to departure: You lose 100% of your holiday cost

National Trust & all other holidays (Continental and non-UK mainland, excluding Continental holidays of 14 days or more)
More than 6 weeks prior to departure: We refund the cost of your holiday less your deposit
6 weeks or less prior to departure: You lose 100% of your holiday cost

Continental holidays of 14 days or more
More than 8 weeks prior to departure: We refund the cost of your holiday less your deposit
8 weeks or less prior to departure: You lose 100% of your holiday cost

You may be able to make a claim under your travel insurance policy if your cancellation falls within the conditions of the policy. Claims must be made directly to the insurance company concerned. If any member of your party is prevented from travelling, that person may transfer their place to someone else (introduced by you) providing we are notified no less than two weeks before departure.

Club Class Home Collection Service
If you choose this service, the cost will be added to your booking. Once you have paid for the service on the holiday balance due date, no refunds can be made. If you cancel your holiday and therefore the service after the balance due date, 100% cancellation charges apply.

4. HOLIDAY ALTERATION BY YOU: Should you wish to make changes to your booking, please advise us as soon as possible. Whilst we cannot guarantee changes can be made to your booking, we will endeavour to meet requests if possible. A fee of £10 per booking will be charged to contribute towards administration fees for the following changes made prior to the balance due date: Change of Passenger Name, Change of Tour, Change of Departure Date, Change of Pick Up Point or Change of Room Type. Any changes after the balance due date may incur cancellation charges.

5. ALTERATIONS AND CANCELLATIONS BY US: Occasionally, we have to make changes and correct errors both before and after bookings have been confirmed. We may also have to cancel confirmed bookings. Whilst we always endeavour to avoid changes and cancellations, we must reserve the right to do so. Most changes are minor in nature and we consider they do not significantly alter the holiday you have booked. Examples of a minor change are: a change of seat number, an itinerary/excursion change such as change of day, destination or transport method, removal or closure of a hotel facility, a change of pick up point to an alternative within 10 miles of your original one. Please note that tours involving a ferry crossing are liable to leave very early in the morning or even late the previous evening (excluding Isle of Wight tours). Occasionally we have to make a significant change to your holiday. When we refer to a significant change in these Booking Conditions, we mean changes made before departure, such as the following: a change of outward departure point to one more than 10 miles from your original one, a change of destination (i.e. town), a significant change in itinerary, a change of accommodation to that of a lower category for the whole or the majority of your holiday. For significant changes and cancellations, if there is time to do so before departure, we will offer the following options:

(a) Accepting the changed arrangements.

(b) Transferring to an alternative holiday specifically offered by us, of a similar standard to that originally booked if available. We will offer you at least one alternative holiday of equivalent or higher standard for which you will not be asked to pay any more than the price of the original holiday. If this holiday is in fact cheaper than the original one, we will refund the price difference.

(c) If you do not wish to accept the holiday we specifically offer you, you may choose any other then available holidays. You must pay an applicable price of any such holiday. This will mean you paying more if it is more expensive or receiving a refund if it is cheaper.

(d) Cancelling or accepting the cancellation in which case you will receive a full and prompt refund of all monies you have paid to us.

Please note, the above options are not available where any change made is a minor one. Compensation will not be payable and no liability beyond offering the above-mentioned choices can be accepted where we are forced to make a change or cancel as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstance beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care.

No compensation will be payable and the above options will not be available if we cancel as a result of your failure to comply with any requirements of these Booking Conditions entitling us to cancel (such as paying on time) or if the change is a minor one. A minor change is any change which taking account of the information you have given us at the time of booking or which we can reasonably be expected to know as a tour operator, we could not expect to have a significant effect on your holiday. In all cases, our liability for significant changes and cancellations is limited to offering you the above-mentioned options and, where applicable, compensation payments. Very rarely, we may be forced by 'force majeure' (see below) to change or terminate your holiday close to departure or indeed after departure but before the scheduled end of your time away. This is extremely unlikely, but if this situation does occur, we regret we will be unable to make any refunds (unless we obtain refunds from our suppliers), pay you any compensation or meet any costs or expenses you incur as a result.

Force Majeure. Except where otherwise expressly stated in these Booking Conditions, we regret we cannot accept any liability, offer any refunds or pay for any loss incurred or compensation where the performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected or you otherwise suffer any damage or loss as a result of "force majeure". In these Booking Conditions "force majeure" means any event or circumstances which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid and is therefore an event beyond our or the suppliers' reasonable control. These events whether actual or threatened include but are not limited to strikes, riots, political/civil unrest, government acts, hostilities, war, terrorist activity, advice from the UK Foreign Office to avoid or leave a country or region, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, viral outbreak, adverse and severe weather conditions, closure, restriction or congestion of airports, ports, stations or other transport hubs.

Concerts, events and artists. If you are travelling on a tour where the primary reason for travel is a concert or event, we cannot accept responsibility for the non-appearance or the cancellation or curtailment of any event or performance; our responsibility is to provide you with a ticket for the concert or event. Should the situation arise, the holiday arrangements will still proceed and we will not always be in a position to advise you of such an occurrence before you travel. Such occurrences will not constitute a significant change to your holiday arrangements, therefore holiday transfer or cancellation will not be permitted without paying our normal charges for doing so and we regret no refunds, compensation or expenses will be payable.

6. PRICING POLICY: All brochure prices are quoted in pounds sterling. The prices apply at the time of publishing and may change before you make your booking. Save where stated otherwise, holiday prices are per person and are based on two people sharing the accommodation. We reserve the right to make changes and correct errors in advertised prices any time before your holiday is confirmed. We will advise you of any errors of which we are aware and of the then applicable price at the time of booking. We reserve the right to increase the cost by way of a surcharge if transportation costs, e.g. fuel, duties, ferry costs or port taxes increase or as a result of fluctuations in the currency exchange rates. We will always bear the first 2% of any such increase.

If any surcharge is greater than 12.5% of the cost of your holiday (excluding insurance premiums and any amendment charges), this will be classed as a significant change and you will be entitled to cancel your booking and receive a full refund of all monies you have paid to us (except for any amendment charges) or alternatively purchase another holiday from us as referred to in clause 5 'Alterations and Cancellations by us'.

On our National Trust breaks, National Trust members receive a discount equivalent to the entrance fees of all National Trust properties visited. This is because membership permits free entrance into all properties. It is compulsory for all members to bring their membership card with them on the tour.

Although insurance (where purchased through us) does not form part of your contract with us or of any 'package', we will consider an appropriate refund of any insurance premiums you have paid us if you can show you are unable to use/reuse or transfer your policy in the event of cancellation or purchase of an alternative holiday. Where a refund is due, we will pay you the full amount of the decrease in our costs. You have 7 days from the issue date printed on the surcharge invoice to tell us if you want to cancel or purchase another holiday. If you do not tell us that you wish to do so within this period of time, we are entitled to assume that you will pay the surcharge. Any surcharge must be paid with the balance of the cost of the holiday or within 7 days of the issue date printed on the surcharge invoice whichever is the later. We promise not to levy a surcharge within 20 days of the start of your holiday. Please note, changes and errors occasionally occur. You must check the price of your chosen holiday at the time of booking.

7. CONDITIONS OF SUPPLIERS: Many of the services which make up your holiday are provided by independent suppliers. Those suppliers provide 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, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions. Copies of the relevant parts of these terms and conditions are available on request from us or the supplier concerned.

8. SPECIAL REQUESTS: Although we will endeavour to pass any reasonable requests on to the relevant supplier, we cannot promise that any request will be honoured. We will not always be able to tell you before you leave if we cannot meet your special requests and we cannot accept your booking on the proviso that the request is honoured.

9. ITINERARY CHANGES: It may be necessary sometimes at short notice, to make changes to an itinerary due to weather, traffic and road conditions. Regrettably coaches, trains or ships do occasionally break down or certain facilities on board a coach or ship may become faulty. Every effort will be made to rectify such issues as quickly as possible. In some instances it may be necessary to replace the vehicle which cannot be repaired. We cannot accept any responsibility for delays or changes to the itinerary caused by any form of breakdown.

10. TRAVEL DELAY: In the event of a delay on our coach tour of more than 6 hours to the advertised times on any of our holidays, we will do our best to provide meals and refreshments as appropriate.

11. HOLIDAY INSURANCE: It is a condition of booking a holiday with us that you take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy. On UK holidays with a one day excursion to Europe, you will need to take out additional cover should you wish to join the excursion. Should you decide not to purchase our travel insurance, any that you obtain elsewhere must offer cover as comprehensive as ours. We will ask you to sign to say that is the case and indemnify us against any medical or repatriation costs which we will not be liable for. If you purchase our insurance you must be a resident of the United Kingdom, all premiums must be paid immediately as cover will not commence until they are paid. We require you to read your policy carefully and take it with you on holiday. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is suitable and adequate for your personal needs.

Just Go Holidays Limited is an appointed representative of ITC Compliance Limited which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (their registration number is 313486) and which is permitted to advise on and arrange general insurance contracts.

12. COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE: It is imperative that if you are unhappy about any aspect of your holiday, you raise the matter IMMEDIATELY with the coach driver, tour manager (if applicable) or accommodation provider. If you fail to do this and deny us the opportunity to rectify the matter at the time, we shall not accept any responsibility retrospectively. If the matter cannot be resolved immediately, it is a condition that you write to us, quoting your booking reference, with the details of your complaint so that we may commence an investigation. You must send your written complaint to us within 28 days of returning home. We will always try and resolve the matter fairly and amicably but should this not be possible then you may, if you wish, refer the matter to The Travel Industry Arbitration Scheme which is administered and managed independently by Dispute Settlement Services on behalf of The Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT). It is a "documents only" scheme which provides for a simple and inexpensive method of settling disputes by appointment of an independent arbitrator to examine the facts and give a ruling. The scheme is limited to claims for an amount not greater than £1,500 per person or £7,500 per booking. Neither does it apply to claims which are solely or mainly in respect of physical injury or illness or the consequences of such injury or illness. Your request for arbitration must be made within 9 months of the date of return home from holiday.

13. OUR LIABILITY (EVENTS CONNECTED WITH YOUR HOLIDAY PACKAGE): (a). We promise to make sure that all parts of the holiday we have agreed to arrange, perform or provide as part of our contract with you are arranged, performed or provided with reasonable skill and care. We will accept responsibility if any death, personal injury, failure or deficiency of your holiday arrangements is caused by any failure by ourselves or our employees (providing they were at the time acting within the course of their employment) or suppliers to use reasonable skill and care in performing or providing the service in question. Please note it is your responsibility to show that reasonable skill and care has not been used if you wish to make a claim. We will not be responsible for any injury, illness, death, loss (for example loss of enjoyment), damage, expense, cost or other sum or claim of any description whatsoever which results from any of the following:

(i) The fault of the person(s) affected or any member(s) of their party or

(ii) The fault of a third party not connected with the provision of your holiday which we could not have predicted or avoided or

(iii) An event or circumstance which we, or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not have predicted or avoided even after taking all reasonable care (see 'Force Majeure')

(iv) The fault of anyone who is not carrying out work for us (generally or in particular) at the time.

In addition, we will not be responsible where you do not enjoy your holiday or suffer any problems because of a reason you did not tell us about when you booked your holiday or where any problems you suffer did not result from any breach of our contract i.e. sickness or other fault of ourselves or, where we were responsible for them, our suppliers or where any losses, expenses, costs or other sum you have suffered relate to any business. Please note, we cannot accept responsibility for any private arrangements you make, which do not form part of our contract. This includes, for example, any additional services or facilities, which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide for you where the services or facilities are not advertised in our brochure and we have not agreed to arrange them in any excursion you purchase from us.

(b). The promises we make to you about the services we have agreed to provide or arrange as part of our contract – and the laws and regulations of the country in which your claim or complaint occurred – will be used as the basis for deciding whether the services in question had been properly provided. If the particular services which gave rise to the claim or complaint complied with local laws and regulations applicable to those services at the time, the services will be treated as having been properly provided. This will be the case even if the services did not comply with the laws and regulations of the UK which would have applied had those services been provided in the UK. The exception to this is where the claim or complaint concerns the absence of a safety feature, which might lead a reasonable holiday maker to refuse to take the holiday in question.

(c). We limit the amount we may have to pay you for any and all claims or parts of claims, which do not involve personal injury, illness or death. Except where loss of and/or damage to luggage or personal possessions is concerned or a lower limitation of liability applies to your claim, the maximum amount we will have to pay you for such non personal injury claims if we are found liable to you on any basis is twice the price (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges paid or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total). This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong, all elements of the contract have not been delivered and you have not received any benefit at all from your holiday.

(d). Where any claim or part of claim concerns or is based on any travel arrangements (including the process of getting on and/or off transport concerned) provided by any sea or road carrier or any stay in a hotel, the maximum amount of compensation we will have to pay you will be limited. The most we will have to pay you for that claim or that part of a claim if we are found liable to you on any basis is the most the carrier or hotel keeper concerned would have to pay under the international convention which applies to the travel arrangements or hotel stay in question. When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question.

(e). This clause is intended to set out our obligations to you as a tour operator/organiser in the light of the Package Travel, Package Tours Regulations 1992. Please note, we regret we cannot make any payment to you or any member of your party if the person concerned is not entitled to one from under these regulations.

(f). You must provide ourselves and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably require. You must also tell us and the supplier concerned about your claim or complaint. If asked to do so, you must transfer to us or our insurers any rights you have against the supplier or whoever else is responsible for your claim or complaint (if the person concerned is under 18, their parent or guardian must do so). You must also agree to cooperate fully with us and our insurers if we or our insurers want to enforce any rights which are transferred.

14. PASSENGERS WITH HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS: Please note, our holidays may not be suitable for people with certain disabilities, dietary requirements or medical conditions. If you have a disability, coaches can be difficult to get on and off and some of our hotels do not offer ground/lower floor accommodation or lifts/easy access. Should any member of your party suffer from any disability or medical condition which may affect their or other people's holidays you must provide full written details at the time you book the holiday including any specific requirements that person has. Additionally at the time you book the holiday you must provide written confirmation that all assistance the disabled person requires will be provided by you. In view of the nature of our holidays, we regret we must reserve the right to decline any bookings whenever we feel unable to accommodate the needs of any particular client or where, in our opinion, the medical condition or disability of the client concerned is likely to have a significant effect on other clients taking the same holiday. We further reserve the right to cancel any holiday and impose cancellation charges if we are not fully advised of any relevant disability or medical condition at the time of booking.

15. BEHAVIOUR: When you book with us, you accept responsibility for any damage or loss caused by any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or loss must be paid to the accommodation manager or other supplier. If you fail to do so, you will be responsible for meeting any claims subsequently made against us (together with our own and the other party's full legal costs) as a result of your actions. In the event of any client behaving in such a way as is likely (in our reasonable opinion) to cause offence, danger, damage or distress to others, we reserve the right to terminate that person's holiday arrangements either before or during the holiday and we will not be liable to complete your holiday arrangements and will not be liable for any refund, compensation, or any other costs you have to pay.

16. FINANCIAL PROTECTION: We are members of the Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT) and the Bonded Coach Holiday Scheme (BCH). All holidays in this brochure are fully bonded with BCH which means that you will be fully refunded for any monies you have paid to us in the unlikely event of our Insolvency. It also means that if such an event happens whilst you are on holiday you will not be stranded abroad or in the UK and will be transferred back to your home town.

17. IMPORTANT NOTICE: This literature was accurate at the time of going to print. In some cases holidays arranged by us may operate subject to there being a minimum number of persons required. In the event that minimum numbers have not been reached, we reserve the right to cancel your holiday and refund all monies paid. We promise not to cancel for this reason after a final confirmation letter has been sent out to you.

18. OTHER TERMS: In order to ensure the comfort of all passengers on our holidays you are subject to the following requirements:

(a) You may not bring a pet or any other animal on one of our holidays.

(b) Please show consideration by ensuring any audio device does not disturb others passengers.

(c) You are responsible for ensuring that you are at the correct departure point at the correct time, as we cannot be liable for any loss or expense suffered by clients because of their late arrival at any departure point.

(d) All our holidays are sold on the basis that you the customer and those in your party are British Citizens and UK passport holders and your passports are valid for at least 3 months after the return date of travel. If you are not a UK passport holder, it is you responsibility to seek travel and visa advice from your appropriate embassy. Health requirements for certain countries may change and you must check the up-to-date position in good time before departure.

(e) Although our vehicles have large luggage compartments, we have to adhere to regulations concerning the overall weight of fully laden vehicles. We would, therefore, ask you to restrict your luggage to one medium sized suitcase weighing no more than eighteen kilograms (forty pounds). We cannot accept responsibility at any time for hand luggage.

(f) As with all personal items, it is your responsibility to ensure your suitcase is on board the coach. Please make sure you see the driver place your luggage into the coach. We cannot accept responsibility for misplaced or damaged luggage.

Also:

(i) It is essential that your luggage has a Just Go Holidays label affixed.

(ii) We cannot carry any additional luggage items with the exception of collapsible walking aids. However, due to weight and space restrictions we can only accommodate a maximum of 2 walking aids on the coach; either collapsible wheelchairs or collapsible walking frames or one of each, the maximum weight of any aid must not exceed 15kg. You must reserve a space at the time of booking and this will be confirmed on our correspondence to you. We reserve the right not to carry any walking aids that are not pre-booked. We regret we cannot accept mobility scooters or motorised wheelchairs.

Please ensure that you follow instructions given to you by our driver or tour manager during the holiday with regard to luggage and personal effects; failure to so and any courier costs therefore incurred will be your responsibility.

(g) On certain tours your journey may commence late in the evening of the previous day.

(h) Smoking, including electronic cigarettes and the consumption of alcohol is not allowed on coaches operating our holidays. If you ignore this rule and thereby cause inconvenience, distress or disappointment to other passengers, you may be asked to leave.

(i) Where the information contained in our brochure is changed or additional information given, due to information supplied by a passenger, for any reason, the passenger must ensure that the information, which they provide us is confirmed to them in writing. No responsibility will be accepted for any loss, damage or disappointment if this procedure has not been followed.

(j) Our brochure was accurate at the time of going to print.

(k) Some excursions are included in the price and refunds cannot be made for passengers unable to participate in these excursions for whatever reason.

(l) Admission fees to buildings, grounds, etc., guided tours and use of leisure facilities are not always included in the price of the holiday.

(m) Journeys on heritage railways cannot be guaranteed to operate under steam regardless of how we describe or depict them.

19. DRIVERS HELP & ASSISTANCE: Please note that drivers are not insured to assist you and therefore any assistance given to you by your driver is at your own risk.

20. CHILDREN: We do not consider our type of holiday suitable for children under five years. Unfortunately, due to our keen prices, we are unable to offer any child discounts. Any passengers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

21. DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT: In order to process your booking and ensure that your holiday arrangements run smoothly and meet your requirements, we need to use the information you provide. The information may include your name, address, age and any special needs, disabilities, dietary or religious requirements etc. We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We may pass the information onto the relevant suppliers of your holiday arrangements such as airlines, accommodation suppliers, transport companies, insurers etc. The information may also be provided to public authorities such as customs/immigration as required by law.

22. PRIVACY POLICY : In making a booking with Just Go Holidays you consent to our privacy policy. We reserve the right to update our policy as required. For our current privacy policy please see www.justgoholidays.com/about-us/privacy-policy or request a copy by calling 08432 244 244.

Holidays by Air Terms & Conditions

These conditions together with the General Information and any other written information form the basis of your contract with Just Go Holidays. This is the basis on which we accept your booking and it is therefore important that you read them carefully. All holidays are offered and operated by Just Go! Holidays under ATOL number 10889 subject to availability.

1. HOLIDAY BOOKING & PAYMENT: Bookings can be made by calling our air reservations department. When you make a booking you must pay a deposit for every person named on the booking. For travel within 8 weeks of departure we require full payment at the time of booking. Once you confirm to our reservations agent that you agree to the flight details being offered and you clearly give us the passenger names exactly as they are on the passports of those travelling, the booking will be confirmed with the airline and cancellation/amendment charges will immediately apply. Most airlines only have flights on sale 9-10 months before departure, in this case we will advise you but still make a booking, take a deposit, issue an invoice and ATOL certificate therefore forming a contract between us on the basis that the actual flight details and final price will be advised to you as soon as the flights are released for sale by the airline. When flights are released for sale we will contact you again with the flight timings and up to date pricing, at that point you will have 5 days to either confirm that you wish to go ahead with the booking on the basis of the confirmed flight times and price or to cancel and receive a full refund of the deposit you have paid us.

Deposits per person and the balance due dates (the period before the departure date on which your full balance normally becomes due) are:


Holiday Type Deposit Balance due date
UK, Europe, Ireland & Channel Islands holidays £200 8 weeks before departure
Europe holidays of 14 days or more £250 8 weeks before departure
USA/Worldwide holidays £750 100 days before departure

If you cannot make a payment by card at the time of booking, please speak to one of our Reservations Assistants to discuss other options. You can make payments against your balance anytime between making the booking and the balance due date. If the balance is not paid on time we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you and apply cancellation charges as set out in clause 3 below. For bookings made after the balance due date the full amount is due at the time of booking. Please note: a 2% charge applies to all payments made by credit card. In the event an individual non-refundable flight cost exceeds the deposits stated above, then the customer deposit will increase in line with the flight price.

2. HOLIDAY CANCELLATION BY YOU: If you want to cancel your booking after we have confirmed it with you either verbally, over the telephone or online, you can do so over the phone or in writing. If you cancel your booking, we will not refund any insurance premium you may have paid and cancellation charges are based on the following scales:


For UK, Europe, Ireland & Channel Islands holidays:
More than 8 weeks before departure: Loss of Deposit
Less than 8 weeks before travel: You lose 100% of total price

For USA/Worldwide holidays:
More than 100 days before departure: Loss of Deposit
Less than 100 days before travel: You lose 100% of total price

Club Class Home Collection Service If you choose this service, the cost will be added to your booking. Once you have paid for the service on the holiday balance due date, no refunds can be made. If you cancel your holiday and therefore the service after the balance due date, 100% cancellation charges apply.

3. HOLIDAY ALTERATION BY YOU: Should you wish to make changes to your flight booking, please advise us as soon as possible. Whilst we cannot guarantee changes can be made to your booking, we will endeavour to meet requests if possible. In all circumstances the airline will make an amendment fee plus potentially an increase to the relevant fare for the sector you are changing based on the current price on the day you make the change. Additionally, we will charge a fee of £10 per booking to contribute towards the administration costs of arranging the change.

4. ALTERATIONS AND CANCELLATIONS BY US: Our holidays are planned and arranged many months in advance; occasionally we have to make changes and correct errors both before and after bookings have been confirmed. We may also have to cancel confirmed bookings. Whilst we always endeavour to avoid changes and cancellations, we must reserve the right to do so. Most changes are minor in nature and we consider they do not significantly alter the holiday you have booked. Examples of a minor change are: a change of flight time, an itinerary/excursion change such as change of day, destination or transport method, closure or removal of a hotel facility e.g. swimming pool. Occasionally we have to make a significant change to your holiday. When we refer to a significant change in these Booking Conditions, we mean changes made before departure, such as the following: a change of outward departure point, a significant change in itinerary, resort area or change of accommodation to that of a lower category for the whole or the majority of your holiday. For significant changes and cancellations, if there is time to do so before departure, we will offer the following options:

(a) Accepting the changed arrangements.

(b) Transferring to an alternative holiday specifically offered by us, of a similar standard to that originally booked if available. We will offer you at least one alternative holiday of equivalent or higher standard for which you will not be asked to pay any more than the price of the original holiday. If this holiday is in fact cheaper than the original one, we will refund the price difference.

(c) If you do not wish to accept the holiday we specifically offer you, you may choose any other then available holidays. You must pay an applicable price of any such holiday. This will mean you paying more if it is more expensive or receiving a refund if it is cheaper.

(d) Cancelling or accepting the cancellation in which case you will receive a full and prompt refund of all monies you have paid to us.

Please note, the above options are not available where any change made is a minor one. Compensation will not be payable and no liability beyond offering the above-mentioned choices can be accepted where we are forced to make a change or cancel as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstance beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care.

No compensation will be payable and the above options will not be available if we cancel as a result of your failure to comply with any requirements of these Booking Conditions entitling us to cancel (such as paying on time) or if the change is a minor one. A minor change is any change which taking account of the information you have given us at the time of booking or which we can reasonably be expected to know as a tour operator, we could not expect to have a significant effect on your holiday. In all cases, our liability for significant changes and cancellations is limited to offering you the above-mentioned options and, where applicable, compensation payments. Very rarely, we may be forced by 'force majeure' (see below) to change or terminate your holiday close to departure or indeed after departure but before the scheduled end of your time away. This is extremely unlikely, but if this situation does occur, we regret we will be unable to make any refunds (unless we obtain refunds from our suppliers), pay you any compensation or meet any costs or expenses you incur as a result.

5. FORCE MAJEURE. Except where otherwise expressly stated in these Booking Conditions, we regret we cannot accept any liability, offer any refunds or pay for any loss incurred or compensation where the performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected or you otherwise suffer any damage or loss as a result of "force majeure". In these Booking Conditions "force majeure" means any event or circumstances which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid and is therefore an event beyond our or the suppliers' reasonable control. These events whether actual or threatened include but are not limited to strikes, riots, political/civil unrest, government acts, hostilities, war, terrorist activity, advice from the UK Foreign Office to avoid or leave a country or region, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, viral outbreak, adverse and severe weather conditions, closure, restriction or congestion of airports, ports, stations, other transport hubs or airspace and flight restrictions imposed by authorities including due to volcanic activity.

Concerts, events and artists. If you are travelling on a tour where the primary reason for travel is a concert or event, we cannot accept responsibility for the non-appearance or the cancellation or curtailment of any event or performance; our responsibility is to provide you with a ticket for the concert or event. Should the situation arise, the holiday arrangements will still proceed and we will not always be in a position to advise you of such an occurrence before you travel. Such occurrences will not constitute a significant change to your holiday arrangements, therefore holiday transfer or cancellation will not be permitted without paying our normal charges for doing so and we regret no refunds, compensation or expenses will be payable.

6. PRICING POLICY: Holiday prices including flights will be subject to fluctuation, any increases will be notified to you at the time of booking after which the price will be guaranteed. All brochure prices are quoted in pounds sterling. The prices apply at the time of publishing and may change before you make your booking. Save where stated otherwise, holiday prices are per person and are based on two people sharing the accommodation. We reserve the right to make changes and correct errors in advertised prices any time before your holiday is confirmed. We will advise you of any errors of which we are aware and of the then applicable price at the time of booking. We reserve the right to increase the cost by way of a surcharge if transportation costs, e.g. fuel, duties, ferry costs, airport or port taxes increase or as a result of fluctuations in the currency exchange rates. We will always bear the first 2% of any such increase.

If any surcharge is greater than 12.5% of the cost of your holiday (excluding insurance premiums and any amendment charges), this will be classed as a significant change and you will be entitled to cancel your booking and receive a full refund of all monies you have paid to us (except for any amendment charges) or alternatively purchase another holiday from us as referred to in clause 5 'Alterations and Cancellations by us'.

Although insurance (where purchased through us) does not form part of your contract with us or of any 'package', we will consider an appropriate refund of any insurance premiums you have paid us if you can show you are unable to use/reuse or transfer your policy in the event of cancellation or purchase of an alternative holiday. Where a refund is due, we will pay you the full amount of the decrease in our costs. You have 7 days from the issue date printed on the surcharge invoice to tell us if you want to cancel or purchase another holiday. If you do not tell us that you wish to do so within this period of time, we are entitled to assume that you will pay the surcharge. Any surcharge must be paid with the balance of the cost of the holiday or within 7 days of the issue date printed on the surcharge invoice whichever is the later. We promise not to levy a surcharge within 20 days of the start of your holiday. Please note, changes and errors occasionally occur. You must check the price of your chosen holiday at the time of booking.

7. CONDITIONS OF SUPPLIERS: Many of the services which make up your holiday are provided by independent suppliers. Those suppliers provide 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, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions. In the case of flights, the airlines terms and conditions of carriage will apply.

8. SPECIAL REQUESTS: Although we will endeavour to pass any reasonable requests on to the relevant supplier, we cannot promise that any request will be honoured. We will not always be able to tell you before you leave if we cannot meet your special requests and we cannot accept your booking on the proviso that the request is honoured.

9. ITINERARY CHANGES: It may be necessary sometimes at short notice, to make changes to an itinerary due to weather, traffic and road conditions. Regrettably aircraft, coaches or ships do occasionally break down or certain facilities on board an aircraft, coach or ship may become faulty. Every effort will be made to rectify such issues as quickly as possible. In some instances it may be necessary to replace the transport method which cannot be repaired. We cannot accept any responsibility for delays or changes to the itinerary caused by any form of breakdown.

10. FLIGHTS: In accordance with EU Directive (EC) No 2111/2005 Article 9, we are required to bring to your attention the existence of a "Community list" which contains details of air carriers that are subject to an operating ban with the EU Community. The Community list is available for inspection at http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air-ban/list_en.htm

In accordance with EU Regulations we are required to advise you of the carrier(s) (or, if the carrier(s) is not known, the likely carrier(s)) that will operate your flight(s) at the time of booking. Where we are only able to inform you of the likely carrier(s) at the time of booking, we shall inform you of the identity of the actual carrier(s) as soon as we become aware of this. Any change to the operating carrier(s) after your booking has been confirmed will be notified to you as soon as possible. We are not always in a position at the time of booking to confirm the aircraft type and flight timings which will be used in connection with your flight. The flight timings and types of aircraft shown in this brochure and detailed on your confirmation invoice are for guidance only and are subject to alteration and confirmation. The latest timings will be shown on your tickets which will be dispatched to you approximately two weeks before departure. You must accordingly check your tickets very carefully immediately on receipt to ensure you have the correct flight times. It is possible that flight times may be changed even after tickets have been dispatched - we will contact you as soon as possible if this occurs. Please note we cannot confirm specific aircraft seats. We recommend you check-in 1.5 hours prior to departure for UK domestic flights, 2.5 hours prior for European flights and 3.5 hours for Worldwide flights.

Under EU Law, if your flight is cancelled or delayed, your flight ticket is downgraded or boarding is denied by your airline, depending on the circumstances, the airline may be required to pay you a fixed amount of compensation, refund the cost of your flight and/or provide you with accommodation and/or refreshments under EC Regulation No 261/2004- the Denied Boarding Regulations of 2004. Where applicable, you must pursue the airline for the compensation or other payment due to you. All sums you receive or are entitled to receive from the airline concerned by virtue of these regulations represent the full amount of your entitlement to compensation or any other payment arising from such cancellation, delay, downgrading or denied boarding. This includes any disappointment, distress, inconvenience or effect on any other arrangements. The fact a delay may entitle you to cancel your flight does not automatically entitle you to cancel any other arrangements even where those arrangements have been made in conjunction with your flight. We have no liability to make payment to you in relation to the Denied Boarding Regulations or in respect of any flight cancellation or delay, downgrading of any flight ticket or denial of boarding as the full amount of your entitlement to any compensation or other payment (as dealt with above) is covered by the airline's obligations under the Denied Boarding Regulations. If the airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to the Aviation Consumer Advocacy Panel which is part of the Civil Aviation Authority - details can be found at www.caa.co.uk Please note that in accordance with Air Navigation Orders, in order to qualify for infant status, a child must be under 2 years of age on the date of its return flight. Please note that extended delays to flight departures that are caused by events beyond the airline's control, such as air traffic control delays, weather issues and technical problems with aircraft will not entitle you to compensation under the Denied Boarding Regulations.

11. TRAVEL DELAY: If European airline flights operating from a European airport are cancelled or delayed, airlines normally have an obligation to assist you. Dependent upon the length and nature of the delay, these obligations include providing you with meals and hotel accommodation, assuming always that those services are available. If the airline fails to provide these services and you have to make payment yourself then most holiday insurance policies would normally include cover. Under no circumstances would we be liable for such costs should they arise. Where a significant delay is encountered our responsibility under EC Regulation 261/2004 is to return you to your final contracted destination only with the same airline in the same class of travel.

12. MISSED CONNECTIONS: When the holiday arrangements include connecting flights and the following flight is missed due to the late arrival of the connecting flight, the liability for any necessary overnight accommodation, meals or refreshments will be the sole responsibility of the airline concerned.

13. HOLIDAY INSURANCE: It is a condition of booking a holiday with us that you take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy. On UK holidays with a one day excursion to Europe, you will need to take out additional cover should you wish to join the excursion. Should you decide not to purchase our travel insurance, any that you obtain elsewhere must offer cover as comprehensive as ours. We will ask you to sign to say that is the case and indemnify us against any medical or repatriation costs which we will not be liable for. If you purchase our insurance you must be a resident of the United Kingdom, all premiums must be paid immediately as cover will not commence until they are paid. We require you to read your policy carefully and take it with you on holiday. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is suitable and adequate for your personal needs.

14. COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE: It is imperative that if you are unhappy about any aspect of your holiday, you raise the matter IMMEDIATELY with the coach driver, tour manager (if applicable) or accommodation provider. If you fail to do this and deny us the opportunity to rectify the matter at the time, we shall not accept any responsibility retrospectively. If the matter cannot be resolved immediately, it is a condition that you write to us, quoting your booking reference, with the details of your complaint so that we may commence an investigation. You must send your written complaint to us within 28 days of returning home. We will always try and resolve the matter fairly and amicably but should this not be possible then you may, if you wish, refer the matter to The Travel Industry Arbitration Scheme which is administered and managed independently by Dispute Settlement Services on behalf of The Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT). It is a "documents only" scheme which provides for a simple and inexpensive method of settling disputes by appointment of an independent arbitrator to examine the facts and give a ruling. The scheme is limited to claims for an amount not greater than £1,500 per person or £7,500 per booking. Neither does it apply to claims which are solely or mainly in respect of physical injury or illness or the consequences of such injury or illness. Your request for arbitration must be made within 9 months of the date of return home from holiday.

15. OUR LIABILITY (EVENTS CONNECTED WITH YOUR HOLIDAY PACKAGE): 1. We promise to make sure that all parts of the holiday we have agreed to arrange, perform or provide as part of our contract with you are arranged, performed or provided with reasonable skill and care. We will accept responsibility if any death, personal injury, failure or deficiency of your holiday arrangements is caused by any failure by ourselves or our employees (providing they were at the time acting within the course of their employment) or suppliers to use reasonable skill and care in performing or providing the service in question. Please note it is your responsibility to show that reasonable skill and care has not been used if you wish to make a claim. We will not be responsible for any injury, illness, death, loss (for example loss of enjoyment), damage, expense, cost or other sum or claim of any description whatsoever which results from any of the following:

(a) The fault of the person(s) affected or any member(s) of their party or

(b) The fault of a third party not connected with the provision of your holiday which we could not have predicted or avoided or

(c) An event or circumstance which we, or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not have predicted or avoided even after taking all reasonable care (see 'Force Majeure')

(d) The fault of anyone who is not carrying out work for us (generally or in particular) at the time.

In addition, we will not be responsible where you do not enjoy your holiday or suffer any problems because of a reason you did not tell us about when you booked your holiday or where any problems you suffer did not result from any breach of our contract i.e. sickness or other fault of ourselves or, where we were responsible for them, our suppliers or where any losses, expenses, costs or other sum you have suffered relate to any business. Please note, we cannot accept responsibility for any private arrangements you make, which do not form part of our contract. This includes, for example, any additional services or facilities, which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide for you where the services or facilities are not advertised in our brochure and we have not agreed to arrange them in any excursion you purchase from us.

2. The promises we make to you about the services we have agreed to provide or arrange as part of our contract – and the laws and regulations of the country in which your claim or complaint occurred – will be used as the basis for deciding whether the services in question had been properly provided. If the particular services which gave rise to the claim or complaint complied with local laws and regulations applicable to those services at the time, the services will be treated as having been properly provided. This will be the case even if the services did not comply with the laws and regulations of the UK which would have applied had those services been provided in the UK. The exception to this is where the claim or complaint concerns the absence of a safety feature, which might lead a reasonable holiday maker to refuse to take the holiday in question.

3. We limit the amount we may have to pay you for any and all claims or parts of claims, which do not involve personal injury, illness or death. Except where loss of and/or damage to luggage or personal possessions is concerned or a lower limitation of liability applies to your claim, the maximum amount we will have to pay you for such non personal injury claims if we are found liable to you on any basis is twice the price (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges paid or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total). This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong, all elements of the contract have not been delivered and you have not received any benefit at all from your holiday.

4. Where any claim or part of claim concerns or is based on any travel arrangements (including the process of getting on and/or off transport concerned) provided by any sea or road carrier or any stay in a hotel, the maximum amount of compensation we will have to pay you will be limited. The most we will have to pay you for that claim or that part of a claim if we are found liable to you on any basis is the most the carrier or hotel keeper concerned would have to pay under the international convention which applies to the travel arrangements or hotel stay in question. When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question.

5. This clause is intended to set out our obligations to you as a tour operator/organiser in the light of the Package Travel, Package Tours Regulations 1992. Please note, we regret we cannot make any payment to you or any member of your party if the person concerned is not entitled to one from under these regulations.

6. You must provide ourselves and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably require. You must also tell us and the supplier concerned about your claim or complaint. If asked to do so, you must transfer to us or our insurers any rights you have against the supplier or whoever else is responsible for your claim or complaint (if the person concerned is under 18, their parent or guardian must do so). You must also agree to cooperate fully with us and our insurers if we or our insurers want to enforce any rights which are transferred.

16. PASSENGERS WITH HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS: Please note, our holidays may not be suitable for people with certain disabilities, dietary requirements or medical conditions. If you have a disability we would be happy to arrange assistance at airports however, coaches can be difficult to get on and off and some of our hotels do not offer ground/lower floor accommodation or lifts/easy access. Should any member of your party suffer from any disability or medical condition which may affect their or other people's holidays you must provide full written details at the time you book the holiday including any specific requirements that person has. Additionally at the time you book the holiday you must provide written confirmation that all assistance the disabled person requires will be provided by you. In view of the nature of our holidays, we regret we must reserve the right to decline any bookings whenever we feel unable to accommodate the needs of any particular client or where, in our opinion, the medical condition or disability of the client concerned is likely to have a significant effect on other clients taking the same holiday. We further reserve the right to cancel any holiday and impose cancellation charges if we are not fully advised of any relevant disability or medical condition at the time of booking.

17. BEHAVIOUR: When you book with us, you accept responsibility for any damage or loss caused by any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or loss must be paid to the accommodation manager or other supplier. If you fail to do so, you will be responsible for meeting any claims subsequently made against us (together with our own and the other party's full legal costs) as a result of your actions. In the event of any client behaving in such a way as is likely, (in our reasonable opinion) to cause offence, danger, damage or distress to others, we reserve the right to terminate that person's holiday arrangements either before or during the holiday and we will not be liable to complete your holiday arrangements and will not be liable for any refund, compensation, or any other costs you have to pay.

18. FINANCIAL PROTECTION: Our air holidays are financially protected through CAA's ATOL scheme of which we are members under membership number 10889. When you book with us you will receive an official ATOL Certificate that lists the services we are providing which are financially protected and where to contact in the very unlikely event that things go wrong.

19. IMPORTANT NOTICE: This literature was accurate at the time of going to print. In some cases holidays arranged by us may operate subject to there being a minimum number of persons required. In the event that minimum numbers have not been reached, we reserve the right to cancel your holiday and refund all monies paid. We promise not to cancel for this reason after a final confirmation letter has been sent out to you.

1. HOLIDAY BOOKING & PAYMENT: Bookings can be made by calling our cruise reservations department. When you make a booking you must pay a deposit for every person named on the booking.

You can make payments against your balance anytime between making the booking and the balance due date. If the balance is not paid on time we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you and apply cancellation charges as set out in clause 3 below. For bookings made after the balance due date the full amount is due at the time of booking. Please note: a 2% charge applies to all payments made by credit card.

We will then despatch our notice of booking to confirm your reservation and at this point the contract between us is formed. It is important you read through the document we send you and advise us of any inaccuracy with 14 days of the document date. By accepting the booking is correct, you agree to the terms and conditions enclosed.

2. CANCELLATION BY YOU: If you want to cancel your booking after we have confirmed it with you either verbally, over the telephone or online, you can do so over the phone or in writing. If you cancel your booking, we will not refund any insurance premium you may have paid and cancellation charges are based on the following scales:

No refunds will be made for tickets or services booked but not used, or for insurance premiums or alteration charges. Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended after they have been confirmed and any alteration could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements in addition to the charges detailed above.

3. CHANGES AND CANCELLATION BY US: We start planning the holidays we offer many months in advance. Occasionally, we have to make changes to and correct errors in brochures/website details both before and after bookings have been confirmed and cancel confirmed bookings. Whilst we always endeavour to avoid changes and cancellations, we must reserve the right to do so. Most changes are minor. Occasionally, we have to make a "significant change". If we make a significant change before departure (for example, a change of accommodation to that of a lower official classification or standard for the whole or a major part of the time you are away, a change of scheduled outward departure time of twelve or more hours, a change of UK departure point to one which is significantly less convenient for you or a significant change of an itinerary missing out more than one major port, we will tell you as soon as possible. If there is time to do so before departure, we will offer you the choice of the following options:

(a) (for significant changes) accepting the changed arrangements

(b) purchasing an alternative holiday from us, of a similar standard to that originally booked if available. If the chosen alternative is more expensive you may be asked to pay the difference, but if it is cheaper, you will receive a pro rata refund.

(c) cancelling or accepting the cancellation in which case you will receive a full refund of all monies you have paid to us save for amendment fees and insurance. You must notify us of your choice within 7 days of our offer. If you fail to do so we will assume that you have chosen to accept the change or alternative booking arrangements. The above options are not available where any change made is a minor one. If we have to make a significant change or cancel, we will pay you reasonable compensation if appropriate, depending on the circumstances and when the significant change or cancellation is notified to you subject to the following exceptions. Compensation will not be payable and no liability beyond offering the above mentioned choices can be accepted where we are forced to make a change or cancel as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care or where we are forced to cancel due to an insufficient number of people having booked the holiday in question (in which case we will notify you no later than eight weeks prior to your date of departure). No compensation will be payable and the above options will not be available if we cancel as a result of your failure to comply with any requirement of these booking conditions entitling us to cancel (such as paying on time) or if the change made is a minor one or where the change(s) or cancellation by us arises out of alterations to the confirmed booking requested by you.

Please note: where arrangements with a higher price than the original ones are offered by us and accepted by you, the difference in price will be deducted from any compensation payable. In no case will we pay compensation if arrangements are offered by us and accepted by you with a higher price than that originally booked with the same cruise itinerary where no additional payment is made by you. We will not be responsible or pay compensation for any additional bookings you may have made outside of this contract which you may have to subsequently cancel due to our cancellation of the cruise.

4. FITNESS TO TRAVEL ON THE CRUISE SHIP, PREGNANCY, DISABILITY OR REDUCED MOBILITY, MEDICAL/MOBILITY EQUIPMENT: The Company's priority is the comfort and safety of its passengers. You are asked at the time of booking to provide as much information as possible regarding any assistance that may be required in the port and on board the vessel.

The Company and the carrier are entitled to administer a health questionnaire prior to boarding. You must advise prior to boarding the vessel if you are suffering any symptoms. All passengers must follow the vessels instructions and procedures relating to all matters including health, safety, hygiene and security.

In order to ensure that the carrier is able to carry passengers safely and in accordance with applicable safety requirements established by international, EU or national law or in order to meet safety requirements established by competent authorities including flag state every Passenger warrants that he/she is fit to travel by sea and that his/her conduct or condition will not impair the safety of the cruise ship or inconvenience the other passengers. The Company and the Carrier reserve the right to require any Passenger to produce medical evidence of fitness to travel in order to assess whether that Passenger can be carried safely in accordance with applicable international, EU or national law.

If it appears to the Company or the carrier, the Master or the Cruise Ship's doctor that a Passenger is for any reason unfit to travel, likely to endanger safety, or likely to be refused permission to land at any port, or likely to render the Carrier liable for Passenger maintenance, support or repatriation, then the Carrier or the Master shall have the right to take any of the following courses: (i) Refuse to embark the Passenger at any port; (ii) Disembark the Passenger at any port; (iii) Transfer the Passenger to another berth or cabin; (iv) If the Cruise Ship doctor considers it advisable, to place or confine him/her in the Cruise Ship's Hospital or to transfer the Passenger to a health facility at any port, at the Passenger's expense (v) to administer first aid and administer any drug, medicine or other substance or to admit and/or confine the Passenger to a hospital or other similar institution at any port provided that the ship's doctor and/or Master considers that any such steps are necessary.

Where a Passenger is refused embarkation as a result of safety and/or fitness to travel, neither the Company nor the carrier shall be liable for any loss or expense occasioned to the passenger thereby, nor shall the passenger be entitled to any compensation from the carrier.

'Disabled Person' or 'Person with Reduced Mobility' includes any person whose mobility when using transport is reduced as a result of any physical disability (sensory or locomotor, permanent or temporary) intellectual or psychosocial disability or impairment, or any other cause of disability, as a result of age, and whose situation needs appropriate attention and adaption to his particular needs for the service made available to all passengers.

The vessels have a limited number of cabins equipped for Disabled Persons. Not all areas or equipment on the vessels are suitable for access to Disabled Persons or Persons with Reduced Mobility. You must check with us at the time of booking to enable us to assess your needs with the performing carrier. Not all ports of call will be accessible and some may be by tender. Please check at the time of booking in order to avoid disappointment. Some ports of call are not suitable for persons with reduced mobility or wheelchairs. Some shore excursions may not be suitable for Disabled passengers or those with Reduced Mobility. You must check the itinerary at the time of booking. The decision will be made by the Company or the Master of the vessel; it will be based on safety and will be binding. The facilities may vary from vessel to vessel and itinerary to itinerary.

Passengers who need assistance and/or have special requests or need special facilities or equipment with regard to accommodation, seating or services required or their need to bring medical equipment must notify the Company at the time of booking. This is to ensure that the Passenger can be carried safely and in accordance with all applicable safety requirements. In order to ensure that the Carrier can provide the necessary assistance and there are no issues relating to the design of the passenger ship or port infrastructure and equipment including port terminals which may make it impossible to carry out the embarkation, disembarkation or carriage of the Passenger in a safe or operationally feasible manner. The Carrier is not obliged to provide any assistance or meet special requests unless the Carrier has agreed to do so in writing. If the Passenger cannot be carried safely and in accordance with applicable safety requirements then the Company and or the carrier can refuse to accept a Passenger or embarkation of a Disabled Person or Person with Reduced Mobility on the grounds of safety. If there are any particular conditions, Disabled or Reduced Mobility which require personal care or supervision then such personal care or supervision must be organised by the passenger and at the passenger's expense. The vessel is unable to respite services, one to one personal care or supervision or any other form of carer for physical or psychiatric or other conditions. Where strictly necessary for the safety of the passenger the Company and or the carrier can require before it accepts the booking that a passenger is assisted by an accompanying person who is fit and able to provide the assistance required. The Company and the carrier reserve the right to refuse passage to anyone who has failed to notify it of their specific needs with regard to accommodation, seating or services required from the carrier or terminal operator, or their need to bring medical equipment, or to bring a recognised assistance dog on board the vessel or of any other known disabilities or who in the Carrier's and or Master's opinion is unfit or unable to travel or anyone whose condition may constitute a danger to themselves or others onboard on the grounds of safety. These needs must be notified at the time of booking.

Please note that assistance dogs are subject to national and EU Regulations regarding travel. It is the passenger's responsibility to check the position prior to the cruise and to be satisfied that the assistance dog can be carried to the ports of embarkation and disembarkation and that the dog is not prohibited from going ashore at the various ports of call. Assistance dogs must have all necessary papers and comply with national Regulations regarding health, inoculations, training and travel.

Those passengers confined to wheelchairs must furnish their own standard size wheelchairs and must be accompanied by a travelling companion fit and able to assist them. The ship's wheelchairs are available for emergency use only. The requirement for passengers to notify at the time of booking if they need to have medical equipment on board is to ensure that the medical equipment can be carried and/or carried safely. It is the passenger's responsibility to ensure that all medical equipment is in good working order and for arranging enough equipment and supplies to last the entire voyage. The ship does not carry any replacement and access to shore side care and equipment may be difficult and expensive. Passengers must be able to operate all equipment. Where any mobility or other equipment is lost or damaged by the fault or neglect of the Company then it is the Company's or carriers absolute decision as to whether to repair or replace such equipment. Unless the Company and or the Carrier agree otherwise and in writing, Passengers are limited to bringing 2 items of such mobility or medical equipment on board per cabin with a total value not exceeding £2200. All equipment must be capable of being carried safety and must be declared before the cruise. The Carrier may decline to carry such equipment where it is not safe to do so or where it has not been notified in time to enable a risk assessment to be carried out.

Any Passenger who embarks, or allows any other Passenger for whom he or she is responsible to embark, when he or she or such other Passenger is suffering from any sickness, disease, injury or infirmity bodily or mental or to his/her knowledge has been exposed to any infection or contagious disease, or for any other reason is likely to impair the safety or reasonable comfort of other persons onboard or for any reason is refused permission to land at his/her port of destination shall be responsible for any loss or expense incurred by the Company, carrier or the Master directly or indirectly in consequence of such sickness, disease, injury, infirmity, exposure or refusal or permission to land unless in the case of sickness, disease, injury, infirmity or exposure the same has been declared in writing to the Carrier or the Master before embarkation and consent in writing of the Carrier or the Master to such embarkation has been obtained.

Pregnant women are highly recommended to seek medical advice prior to travel at any stage of their pregnancy. Women who are up to 23 weeks pregnant at the end of the cruise are required to produce a medical certificate of fitness to travel. The Carrier cannot for safety reasons carry pregnant Passengers of 24 weeks or more by the end of the cruise. The Carrier reserves the right to request a medical certificate at any stage of pregnancy and to refuse passage if the Carrier and/or the Master are not satisfied that the Passenger will be safe during the passage. The ship's doctor is not qualified to deliver babies onboard or to offer pre or post natal treatment and no responsibility is accepted by the Carrier in respect of the ability to provide such services or equipment. The cruise ship's doctor is not a specialist and the ship's medical centre is not required to be and is not equipped to the same standards as a land-based hospital. The Vessel carries medical supplies and equipment as required by its flag state. Neither the Carrier nor the doctor shall be liable to the Passenger as a result of any inability to treat any medical condition as a result.

In the event of illness or accident, Passengers may have to be landed ashore by the Carrier and/or Master for medical treatment. The Company makes no representations regarding the quality of medical treatment at any port of call or at the place at which the Passenger is landed.

Medical facilities and standards vary from port to port and the Company makes no representations or warranties in relation to such standards.

5. ALTERATIONS BY YOU: If you wish to change any part of your booking arrangements after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you must inform us as soon as possible. This should be done by the person who made the booking. Whilst we will do our best to assist, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet your requested change. Where we can meet a request, all changes will be subject to an administration fee of £50 as well as any applicable rate changes or extra costs incurred as well as any costs incurred by ourselves and any costs or charges incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers. Within 100 days of departure, administration charges will increase to approximately 25% of the total cruise fare. Only one amendment per booking can be made and within 100 days and changes may not be approved. Please note that any requested amendments will be approved at the discretion of Cruise & Maritime Voyages.

Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended after they have been confirmed and any alteration could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements.

6. OUR RESPONSIBILITY: (1) Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions, we regret we cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance or prompt performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected by or you otherwise suffer any damage or loss as a result of "force majeure". In these Booking Conditions, "force majeure" means any event which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, actual or threatened terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control.

The Company is not responsible for any improper or non-performance of any services forming part of the Cruise or Package which are wholly attributable to the fault of the passenger, the unforeseeable or unavoidable act or omission of a third party unconnected with the provision of any services to be provided under the Contract; unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond the control of the Company and/or the relevant supplier, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised including (but not limited to) an event of force majeure; or any event which the Company and/or the relevant supplier could not even with all due care have foreseen or forestalled. In the event that the Company is responsible for any death, injury or illness caused by the negligent acts and/or omissions of its suppliers of services which form part of the Package then the Company limits its liability, where applicable by the International Conventions.

(2) Where death and or personal injury and or loss of or damage to property occurs during carriage by air or by sea then liability and the extent of damages recoverable will be dealt with by International Conventions as set out in paragraphs 4 and 5 and not otherwise.

(3) As set out in these booking conditions we limit the maximum amount we may have to pay you for any claims you may make against us which do not involve personal injury, illness or death. Except where loss of and/or damage to luggage or personal possessions is concerned if we are found liable to you on any basis the maximum amount we will have to pay you is twice the price (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges) paid by or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total unless a lower limitation applies to your claim under clause 6(6) below. This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong and you have not received any benefit at all from your holiday.

(4) Where any claim or part of a claim (including those involving death or personal injury) concerns or is based on any travel arrangements (including the process of getting on and/or off the transport concerned) provided by any air, sea, rail or road carrier or any stay in a hotel, the maximum amount of compensation we will have to pay you will be limited. The most we will have to pay you for that claim or that part of a claim if we are found liable to you on any basis is the most the carrier or hotel keeper concerned would have to pay under the international convention or regulation which applies to the travel arrangements or hotel stay in question (for example, the Warsaw Convention as amended or unamended and the Montreal Convention for international travel by air and/or for airlines with an operating licence granted by an EU country, the EC Regulation on Air Carrier Liability No 889/2002 for national and international travel by air, the Athens convention for international travel by sea).

Please note: Where a carrier or hotel would not be obliged to make any payment to you under the applicable International Convention or Regulation in respect of a claim or part of a claim, we similarly are not obliged to make a payment to you for that claim or part of the claim. When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question. Copies of the applicable International Conventions and Regulations are available from us on request. We do not have any liability to you by virtue of the Denied Boarding Regulation 2004 which applies solely to the operating carrier. Any liability we may have to you under our contract with you, arising out of the same facts, is limited to the remedies provided under the Regulation as if (for this purpose only) we were a carrier; any sums you receive from the carrier will be deducted from any amount due from ourselves.

(5) Travel by sea is governed by the provisions of the Convention Relating to the Carriage of Passengers and their Luggage by Sea 1974 as amended in 1976 ("The Athens Convention) and where applicable from 1 January 2013 EU Regulation 392/2009 relating to the Liability of carriers of passengers by sea in the event of accidents ("EU Regulation 392/2009). For the purposes of the Athens Convention and EU Regulation 392/2009 we are the Contracting Carrier.

The Athens Convention and EU Regulation 392/2009 limit the Carriers' liability for death or personal injury or loss or damage to luggage and makes special provision for valuables. It is presumed that luggage has been delivered to you undamaged unless written notice is given to the Company and/or the performing Carrier.

a) in the case of apparent damage, before or at the time of disembarkation or redelivery; or

b) in the case of damage which is not apparent or of loss, within 15 days from the date of disembarkation or redelivery or from the time when such redelivery should have taken place.

Damages for cabin luggage payable by the Carrier are limited up to the Athens Convention limit of 833 SDRs or 2250 SDRs if EU Regulation 392/2009 applies.

Limits shall be reduced in proportion to any contributory negligence by the Client and by the maximum deductible specified in Article 8 (4) of the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009. Copies of the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009 are available from the Company on request.

In so far as the Company may be liable to a Client in respect of claims arising out of carriage by sea, The Company shall be entitled to all the rights, defences, immunities and limitations available, respectively, to the actual carrier and under the relevant Conventions, and nothing in these Booking Conditions shall be deemed as a surrender thereof. To the extent that any provision in these Booking Conditions is made null and void by the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009 or any legislation compulsorily applicable or is otherwise unenforceable, it shall be void to that extent but not further. The Company's liability will not at any time exceed that of the carrier under its Conditions of Carriage and/or applicable or incorporated conventions or other legislation.

Any liability in respect of death and personal injury and loss of and damage to luggage which the Company may incur to you whether under the Contract with the Client in accordance with these Booking Conditions or otherwise, shall always be subject to the limits of liability contained in the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009 for death/personal injury of 46,666 Special Drawing Rights (SDR) or 300,000 SDR under Athens Convention or 400,000 SDRs under EU Regulation 392/2009 except in the case of liability for war or terrorism 250,000 SDRs.

The Company is not liable for valuables, monies or other securities including jewellery and watches. If they have been deposited with the reception desk on the ship for safe keeping and a receipt issued then in those limited circumstances the Carriers liability will be as set out in the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009. The use of safes onboard a Vessel is not a deposit with the ship or with the company under the Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009 or otherwise. The limits are 1200 SDRs pursuant to Athens or 3,375 SDRs pursuant to EU Regulation 392/2009.

(6) Where there is any loss of or damage to property including luggage which is not covered by any international convention and where liability is not limited by reference to any enactment, terms of conditions, then any legal liability that the Company may have for any such losses or damage will not exceed £500 per guest.

(7) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary elsewhere in these Booking Conditions, the Company shall not in any circumstances be liable to you for any loss or anticipated loss of profit, loss of revenue, loss of use, loss of contract or other opportunity nor for any other consequential or indirect loss or damage of a similar nature.

(8) For claims not involving personal injury, death or illness or which are not subject to the Conventions referred to above, any liability the Company may incur for the negligent acts and/or omissions of its suppliers shall be limited to a maximum of the price which the Client paid for the Contract not including insurance premiums and administration charges. Where this relates to loss of and/or damage to luggage and/or other personal possessions then the Company's liability will not exceed £500. The Company will not at any time be liable for any loss of or damage to valuables of any nature.

(9) You must provide ourselves and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably require. You must also tell us and the supplier concerned about your claim or complaint as set out in clause 13 below. If asked to do so, you must transfer to us or our insurers any rights you have against the supplier or whoever else is responsible for your claim or complaint (if the person concerned is under 18, their parent or guardian must do so). You must also agree to cooperate fully with us and our insurers if we or our insurers want to enforce any rights which are transferred. .

7. SUPPLIERS' CONDITIONS: Many of the services which make up your holiday are provided by independent suppliers. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the supplier's liability to you, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions (see clause 6 (4)). Copies of the relevant parts of these terms and conditions and particularly the Terms and Conditions of Carriage at Sea of the carrier providing your Cruise are available on request from ourselves.

8. PASSPORTS, VISAS, HEALTH FORMALITIES & TRAVEL DOCUMENTS:All cruises are sold on the basis that you the customer and those in your party are British Citizens and UK Passport holders and your passports are valid for at least 3 months after the return date of travel. It is your responsibility to check and fulfil the passport, visa, health and immigration requirements applicable to your itinerary. We can only provide general information about this. You must check requirements for your own specific circumstances with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates and your Doctor as applicable. Requirements do change and you must check the up to date position in good time before departure. You must notify us regarding next of kin details and any other important information we request before you travel.

The health formalities and any compulsory inoculations required for your cruise can be found on the Cruise & Maritime Voyages website and this information maybe subsequently updated. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit to travel and to take all necessary medication etc. with you. We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel, or incur any other loss because you have not complied with any passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities. You agree to reimburse us in relation to any fines or other losses which we incur as a result of your failure to comply with any passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities. Any cancellation that arises due to visa/passport requirement will be subject to the cancellation charges detailed above.

9. BEHAVIOUR: If in our opinion or in the opinion of any other person in authority, your behaviour or that of any member of your party is causing or is likely to cause distress, danger or annoyance to any of our other guests or any third party or damage to property, or to cause a delay or diversion to transportation, we reserve the right to terminate your booking arrangements with us immediately. In the event of such termination our liability to you and/or your party will cease and you and/or your party will be required to leave your cruise or other service immediately. We will have no further obligations to you and/or your party. No refunds for lost services will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of termination. You and/or your party may also be required to pay for loss and/or damage caused by your actions and we will hold you and each member of your party jointly and individually liable for any damage or losses caused by you or any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or losses must be paid directly to the applicable supplier prior to departure from the service in question. If you fail to make payment, you will be responsible for meeting any claims (including legal costs) subsequently made against us as a result of your actions together with all costs we incur in pursuing any claim against you. We cannot be held responsible for the actions or behaviour of other guests or individuals who have no connection with your booking arrangements or with us.

10. INSURANCE: It is a condition of booking with us that you take out appropriate travel insurance. You are not permitted to travel with us without having adequate travel insurance in place. Details of a policy offering comprehensive cover at reasonable rates is available on request. This policy includes cover for cancellation charges and the cost of assistance, including repatriation, in an emergency. If you do not purchase this insurance you must arrange alternative insurance of at least comparable standard and you must provide details of your policy to us upon request and also sign a disclaimer to indemnify us against any medical or repatriation costs.

11. PRICES: Our current prices are calculated on exchange rates known at the time of brochure production. We reserve the right to make changes to and correct errors in advertised prices at any time before your holiday is confirmed, both on our website and in our brochures. We will advise you of any error of which we are aware and of the then applicable price at the time of booking. Please note that prices may go up and down at all times, and you will be notified of the final price of your chosen arrangements at the time of booking. Once the price of your chosen holiday has been confirmed by us, we will only increase or decrease it in the following circumstances. Price increases or decreases after booking will be passed on by way of a surcharge or refund. A surcharge or refund (as applicable) will be payable, subject to the conditions set out in this clause, if our costs increase or decrease as a result of transportation costs (e.g. fuel, scheduled airfares and any other airline surcharges which are part of the contract between airlines (and their agents) and the tour operator) or dues, taxes or fees payable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports or airports increasing or decreasing or our costs increase or decrease as a result of any changes in the exchange rates which have been used to calculate the cost of your holiday. Even in the above cases, only if the amount of the increase in our costs exceeds 2% of the total cost of your holiday (excluding insurance premiums and any amendment charges), will we levy a surcharge. If any surcharge is greater than 10% of the cost of your holiday (excluding insurance premiums and any amendment charges), you will be entitled to cancel your booking and receive a full refund of all monies you have paid to us (except for any amendment charges) or alternatively purchase another holiday from us as referred to in "Changes and Cancellations by us".

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. A refund will only be payable if the decrease in our costs exceeds 2% as set out above. Where a refund is due, we will pay you the full amount of the decrease in our costs. You have 14 days from the issue date printed on the surcharge invoice to tell us if you want to cancel or purchase another holiday. If you do not tell us that you wish to do so within this period of time, we are entitled to assume that you will pay the surcharge. Any surcharge must be paid with the balance of the cost of the holiday or within 14 days of the issue date printed on the surcharge invoice, whichever is the later.

We promise not to levy a surcharge within 30 days of the start of your holiday. Please note, changes and errors occasionally occur. You must check the price of your chosen holiday at the time of booking.

12. TIMINGS & DELAYS: Timings are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed, even if shown on tickets. They may be changed due to regulatory authority requirements, weather conditions, maintenance or technical reasons, and the ability of passengers to check in and board on time. Sometimes delays cannot be avoided but in such situations, in conjunction with our local agents or representatives, we will try to ensure your comfort during the course of any delay.

13. COMPLAINTS: If there is a problem during your holiday, you must report it on-board immediately, so that prompt efforts can be made to resolve the problem. In the unlikely event that a problem cannot be resolved at the time and you wish to complain, you must send us full written details within 28 days of your return. Failure to take either or both of these steps will prejudice our ability to resolve your problem and / or investigate it fully. In consequence, any right to compensation you may have will be extinguished or, at the very least, substantially reduced.

14. LAW & JURISDICTION: This contract and all matters arising out of it are governed by English law. We both agree that any dispute, claim or other matter which arises out of or in connection with this contract or your holiday will be dealt with under the ABTA Arbitration Scheme (if the scheme is available for the claim in question - see clause 14) or by the Courts of England and Wales only. You may however, choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if you live there and wish to do so.

15. ARBITRATION: We will always try and resolve the matter fairly and amicably but should this not be possible then you may, if you wish, refer the matter to The Travel Industry Arbitration Scheme which is administered and managed independently by Dispute Settlement Services on behalf of The Confederation of Passenger Transport UK (CPT). It is a "documents only" scheme which provides for a simple and inexpensive method of settling disputes by appointment of an independent arbitrator to examine the facts and give a ruling. The scheme is limited to claims for an amount not greater than £1,500 per person or £7,500 per booking. Neither does it apply to claims which are solely or mainly in respect of physical injury or illness or the consequences of such injury or illness. Your request for arbitration must be made within 9 months of the date of return home from holiday.

16. FINANCIAL PROTECTION: In line with the EC Directive on package travel, Just Go Holidays offers complete financial protection for all customers through our BCH (Bonded Coach Holiday) bond, on the cruises featured our cruise brochure.

18. SPECIAL REQUEST: If you have any special request, you must advise us at the time of booking. Although we will endeavour to pass any reasonable requests on to the relevant supplier, we regret we cannot guarantee any request will be met unless we have specifically confirmed this. For your own protection, you should obtain confirmation in writing from us that your request will be complied with (where it is possible for us to give this) if your request is important to you. Confirmation that a special request has been noted or passed on to the supplier or the inclusion of the special request on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation is not confirmation that the request will be met. Unless and until specifically confirmed, all special requests are subject to availability. We regret we cannot accept any bookings specified to be conditional on the fulfilment of a particular request. All such bookings will be treated as "standard" bookings subject to the above provisions on special requests.

19. DISABILITIES, ILLNESS AND MEDICAL PROBLEMS: We will do our utmost to cater for any special requirements you may have. If you or any member of your party has any medical problem or disability which may affect your stay, please provide us with full details before we confirm your booking so that we can advise as to the suitability of your chosen arrangements if possible. Please also see clause 20. If we reasonably feel unable to properly accommodate the particular needs of the person(s) concerned, we will not confirm your booking or, if full details are not given at the time of booking, cancel (imposing applicable cancellation charges) when we become aware of these details. We and the supplier concerned reserve the right to refuse boarding in the event that we reasonably feel that an individual is not fit to travel. We will deem that person unfit to travel if in the 48 hours or less before sailing they have suffered with any medical symptoms suggestive of a viral illness including but not limited to diarrhoea, vomiting, high temperature or other flu-like symptoms.

20. VOYAGER GRADE CATEGORY BOOKINGS: Your cabin type is not guaranteed and will be notified to you after your booking is made. Voyager grade bookings will always cost less than the cheapest advertised confirmed category price. See our brochure/website for full details. Bookings can be made by telephone or online via our website. Please note that this booking facility can be withdrawn and reinstated at any point, as this offer is only intermittently available.

21. DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT: In order to process your booking and ensure that your holiday arrangements run smoothly and meet your requirements, we need to use the information you provide. The information may include your name, address, age and any special needs, disabilities, dietary or religious requirements etc. We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We may pass the information onto the relevant suppliers of your holiday arrangements such as airlines, accommodation suppliers, transport companies, insurers etc. The information may also be provided to public authorities such as customs/immigration as required by law.

22. PRIVACY POLICY : In making a booking with Just Go Holidays you consent to our privacy policy. We reserve the right to update our policy as required. For our current privacy policy please see www.justgoholidays.com/about-us/privacy-policy or request a copy by calling 08432 244 244.

1. HOW TO BOOK: 1.1. A Booking of a Holiday can be made with our appointed Tour Operators. Prior to making a Booking you should ensure that you have read and are prepared to accept these Conditions, and have available the information required to make the Booking.

2. THE CONTRACT: 2.1 Once FOCL has accepted the Booking from the Tour Operator and all payments due at the time of making the Booking, (including the deposit and, where applicable, the full balance of the Price), a Contract between you and the Tour Operator exists subject to these Conditions and covers the person or entity making the Booking and each and every Passenger in respect of whom the Booking is made (collectively referred to as 'you' in these Conditions). Unless expressly agreed by FOCL, the parties specified under a Contract as being the "Passengers" for the purposes of the Holiday may not be altered at any time. In addition the Holiday under a Contract cannot subsequently be amended or transferred to a lower priced Holiday other than as set out herein. Bookings must be accepted by FOCL and cannot be accepted by any third party including the Tour Operator.

2.2 Notwithstanding paragraph 2.1, FOCL has the right to refuse to accept any Booking even if the deposit and the full balance of the Price has been paid by you to the Tour Operator.

2.3 FOCL is a bonded tour operator with ABTA Limited (No. W0637 meaning that when you buy a holiday that does not include a flight, protection is provided by way of a bond held by ABTA Limited. In respect of a holiday that includes a flight FOCL holds an Air Travel Organiser's Licence issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (the "CAA") (ATOL No. 5016). This ensures that in the unlikely event of insolvency of the licence holder, the CAA will arrange to refund money paid for an advance Booking and ensure that Passenger(s) are not stranded abroad.

In Ireland FOCL is bonded as a tour operator and holds a Tour Operator's Licence No. T0212 issued by the Commission for Aviation Regulation. FOCL is also a member of the Passenger Shipping Association. For the avoidance of doubt, any additional products that are not FOCL products supplied to you by your agent or purchased directly by you from a third party are not covered under FOCL's ABTA bond or FOCL's ATOL licence. FOCL has no liability or responsibility to you in respect of such additional products sold via your agent or brought directly by you. You should check that the Tour Operator has bonding in place to protect you.

2.4 Any cabin, room or seat Booked or notified under a Contract may be changed to another of equivalent or higher standard at the sole discretion of FOCL or any other party acting as operator or carrier.

2.5 The Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the Tour Operator and the Passenger and unless otherwise stated in these Conditions supersedes all other agreements, oral or written.

2.6 Where organised tours, Shuttle Transport Services, excursions or programmes are available during a Holiday, they are not part of the Contract, unless otherwise notified by FOCL. Where FOCL makes such tours available, it does so as agent for the operator of the tours and any amount paid is not part of the Price, whether or not the tours are booked or paid for at the same time as, or before or during, the Holiday. However, should FOCL, the Tour Operator, its employees, servants, agents or sub-contractors, the owner and operator of the vessel or any other person involved in the supply of services in connection with this Contract be deemed to have any liability in connection with such tours, this shall in all cases be subject to these Conditions. Tours operate subject to minimum numbers of participants. If any tour does not operate, a refund of any money paid in advance may be made, but otherwise no compensation shall be payable.

2.7 Where flights are taken in conjunction with a Holiday by a Passenger but are booked / purchased independently of a FOCL Holiday, then they are not part of the Contract and FOCL has no liability whatsoever in respect of such booked flights.

2.8 Holidays are planned far in advance and the Contract is for the Holiday Booked subject to alterations that may be made as a result of events, changes of circumstances or other factors that have occurred or arisen since the Holiday was planned. This is dealt with further below under paragraph 6 ("Alteration and Cancellation by FOCL").

2.9 The person making the Booking warrants that they have authority to contract and accept these Conditions on behalf of all those in respect of whom the Contract is made. The Tour Operator, FOCL, its employees, servants (including medical staff), agents and subcontractors, the owner and operator of the vessel and any other party involved in the supply of services in connection with this Contract shall all have the benefit of all rights, exemptions and limitations in these Conditions. In no circumstances will the total liability of all such parties exceed that of the Tour Operator and FOCL.

2.10 It is the sole responsibility of the Passenger to ensure that they check in on time for the Booked Holiday and allow plenty of time for doing so. It is the sole responsibility of the Passenger to ensure that they check in on time for any flights to / from the vessel including any interconnecting flights. Passengers are solely responsible for checking with regard to any flight delays or cancellations.

3. DEPOSIT, ALTERATIONS AND FINAL PAYMENT: 3.1 A deposit of the Price of the Holiday must be paid to the Tour Operator at the time the Booking is made. Other payments may also be due at the time of Booking. Payment to or acceptance of any money by the Tour Operator, a travel agent or other third party, does not constitute acceptance of a Booking by FOCL. Prior to acceptance of the Booking by FOCL and all payments then due to the Tour Operator, the Tour Operator has no obligation to the Passenger and may return or authorise the return of any payments made with no penalty and without providing a reason.

3.2 If your Booking or Contract is altered after acceptance of your deposit as a result of a request by you that has been accepted by the Tour Operator or FOCL, a minimum service charge of £50.00 per person is payable to the Tour Operator and FOCL. In the case of a name change, more than 90 days before the Departure Date this will be charged at £50.00 per person per change; within 90 days of the Departure Date the charge is £100 per person, where accepted. A name change is not permitted for the lead Passenger. In addition to this, for fly-cruises any associated costs imposed by the airline will also be payable by the Passenger. Please note that some airlines and other transport providers may not allow name changes and/or departure detail alterations such as date and time changes. Most airlines and other transport providers treat name and departure detail changes as a cancellation and charges may subsequently apply. A request to transfer the Holiday under your Contract to an alternative Holiday may be accepted by FOCL on one occasion provided it is made more than 90 days before the Departure Date. However, any subsequent request will be treated as a cancellation. If an alteration would result in a reduction of the Price of the Holiday under the Contract of more than 25% then this will be treated as a cancellation (please see paragraph 5 ("Cancellation by You") which sets out further details).

3.3 The balance of the Price is due to be paid to the Tour Operator and FOCL no later than 90 days before the Departure Date for all Holidays and money must be paid in sufficient time for cleared funds to reach FOCL. For any Holidays Booked after this date, the full Price is due and must be paid at the time of making the Booking. Special payment conditions may apply to special or discounted Prices. If, for any reason, any payment due after Booking is not received by the Tour Operator or by FOCL by the date due, the Tour Operators and FOCL has the right to cancel the Contract, retain the deposit paid and charge a cancellation fee of the amount shown in the scale under paragraph 5 ("Cancellation by You") applicable at the date of the Tour Operators and FOCL's decision to cancel. If, after a Booking is made via the Tour Operator and if FOCL has reason to believe that the Tour Operator may be unable to meet its financial obligations then FOCL has the right to move the Booking / Contract to another Tour Operator or take the Booking / Contract on direct. However, any monies paid to the Tour Operator but not paid to FOCL, FOCL has no liability to the passenger to honour the booking.

3.4 If a direct Booking with FOCL has been made and accepted, and all payments due at the time of the Booking have been made, the Booking may not be transferred to the Tour Operator unless the Booking was made on board a Vessel and FOCL has been notified of the request to transfer the Booking at the time of booking and does not object.

3.5 A 2% surcharge will apply to payments made for any Booking made by credit card.

4. PRICES AND OTHER CHARGES: 4.1 Prices are based on operating costs and market conditions at the date they are published and may be revised upwards or downwards at the discretion of FOCL at any time.

4.2 Once you have made a Booking, no increase or decrease in the Price will be made except as follows:-

4.2.1 If there is an increase or decrease in the cost of providing any Holiday under a Contract of more than 2% caused by an increase or decrease in: transportation costs, including the cost of fuel; dues, taxes or fees for services at ports and airports; or exchange rates, then a surcharge may be levied or a refund may be provided. If this means paying more than 10% on top of the Price quoted at the time of your Booking, you will be entitled to cancel your Holiday Contract with full refund of all monies paid except for any premium paid for insurance and amendment charges. Such cancellation must be made within 14 days of the issue date printed on the surcharge invoice. If a surcharge is made it will be demanded in writing. Failure to pay a surcharge within 14 days may be treated as cancellation by you of the Contract in which case a cancellation charge of the amount shown under paragraph 5 ("Cancellation by You") applicable on the date of the Tour Operators and FOCL's decision to cancel will be made.

4.2.2 No surcharges will be charged less than 30 days before the Departure Date but Bookings received within this period may be charged at the published price plus any surcharge arising up to the date of that Booking.

4.2.3 Similarly, if there is a decrease of more than 2% in the costs of providing any Holiday under a Contract (as per paragraph 4.2.1) then any decrease over 2% will be passed on to you.

4.3 Most port and airport charges and taxes are included in the Price of the Holiday. Where these are not included, you will be advised separately. Some overseas charges and taxes may have to be paid locally by you.

4.4 Medical services provided on board are outside the scope of the UK National Health Service and a charge is made for these services, for drugs and other medical provisions including repatriation costs in accordance with paragraph 10 below.

4.5 All accounts for services and goods provided on board the vessel and any other amounts due which are not included in the Price of the Holiday, including amounts for tours, Shuttle Transport Services, excursions and programmes, must be settled before you leave the vessel. A 2% surcharge will apply to payments made by credit card. An administration charge of £75 will apply if you fail to fully settle your on board account before you leave the vessel. In the event that a Passenger fails to settle his/her on board account on or before completion of the Holiday, FOCL reserves the right without prejudice to any other remedies FOCL may have under these Conditions or otherwise, to cancel any future Bookings the Passenger may have made with FOCL and to set off any sums owed to FOCL by the Passenger against any sums due to the Passenger from FOCL.

5. CANCELLATION BY YOU: 5.1 You may cancel your Contract subject to notice to the Tour Operator and FOCL in writing and payment to the Tour Operator and FOCL of a cancellation fee in accordance with the following scale:.


Number of days before departure Cancellation fee being a % of the Contract Price for the Holiday
91 days or more 15%
90-57 days 60%
56-42 days 75%
41-16 days 85%
15 to 0 days 100%

The effective date of cancellation is the date of receipt by FOCL of written notice to cancel. For the avoidance of doubt, these charges will apply whatever the reason for your cancellation, including illness, incapacity, death or any other intervening event. If you have already started your Holiday but are unable to continue for any reason whatsoever including repatriation, illness, incapacity, death, or any intervening event, FOCL may resell any unused services or accommodation, and no refund will be payable to you.

5.2 Cancellation fees may be insurable. It is the Passenger's responsibility to make any such claim under the terms of his/her insurance policy. Holiday insurance premiums cannot be refunded in the event of cancellation.

5.3 Cancellation of land tours or scheduled air upgrades/deviations purchased as add-ons to "Grand" and "World Voyages" (including sectors) will incur 100% charges to the third party supplier if cancelled within 90 days of your Departure Date.

6. ALTERATION AND CANCELLATION BY FOCL: 6.1 FOCL reserves the right to cancel any Holiday at any time on the giving of written notice to the Tour Operator. In any such instance the terms of the ABTA Code of Conduct will apply.

6.2 Published Holiday details in FOCL brochures and any notified Holiday details to you at the time of placing your Booking with the Tour Operator may be subject to alteration after the Contract arises as a result of events, changes in circumstances or other factors that have occurred or arisen since the Holiday was originally planned by the Tour Operator and FOCL. FOCL's priority is to provide you with the Cruise Holiday you booked under your Contract with the Tour Operator as far as possible for its duration. Alteration may include omitting, substituting or adding ports of call, restricting the availability of any on board facilities and services available at any time or otherwise changing the itinerary (including routing of the cruise ship or flights and port of embarkation and disembarkation), schedule, cruise ship or other arrangements that form part of the Holiday. Alteration of the Cruise Holiday may be made of necessity due to for example an outbreak of an infectious disease or because it appears to FOCL desirable for the safety, comfort or enjoyment of Passengers or the operational efficiency of the Holiday. Where possible and appropriate FOCL will try to ensure that any changes are as limited as practical and do not take place within 14 days of the Departure Date unless due to a Force Majeure event. Such alteration will not amount to a significant alteration of the Holiday.

6.3 Where before the Departure Date it becomes impossible to provide your Holiday (even by making changes) due to an event of Force Majeure, then FOCL will give notice of cancellation of the Holiday as soon as practicable and you will be offered a refund of all monies paid for the Cruise holiday or where possible the choice of a replacement Holiday of equivalent value.

6.4 FOCL has the right up to 56 days before the Departure Date to cancel any Cruise Holiday or any part of it because the minimum number of Passengers needed has not been achieved.

6.5 Where after the Departure Date it becomes impossible to provide any part of a Cruise Holiday due to an event of Force Majeure, FOCL or any other party acting as Tour Operator will make suitable alternative arrangements at no extra cost to you. If this is not possible equivalent transport will be provided back to the place of departure or on to the final destination and where the Holiday is curtailed, then for each whole day lost you will be reimbursed an amount equivalent to the daily cost of the cruise part of the Holiday.

6.6 Where delay occurs during the Holiday due to fault on the part of FOCL or then alternative arrangements will be made where required to ensure the continuation of the Holiday.

6.7 In the event of cancellation, alteration or delay (including prolongation of the Holiday) FOCL will not be responsible for individual circumstances or arrangements, or any losses arising from individual circumstances or arrangements.

7. CONDUCT, SAFETY AND SECURITY: 7.1 If it appears before or during your Holiday that you are or are becoming for any reason unfit to travel or likely to endanger or prejudice the health or safety or comfort of yourself or anyone else then a duly authorised representative of FOCL or any other party involved in the supply of services under this Contract may transfer you from one cabin or seat to another, restrain, confine or otherwise deal with you as may be considered necessary or refuse to embark or disembark you at any port or place. In such circumstances, you will not be entitled to any refund, compensation or contribution to or reimbursement of travel costs or expenses of any kind and you shall be liable to pay any fines, losses, compensation or other amount due to any third party. In no circumstances shall the Tour Operator or FOCL have any liability for prevention of boarding of any form of transport due to a decision made by any party other than FOCL.

7.2 FOCL has the right to make, enforce and change (without prior notice) rules and policies for the conduct of Passengers on board relating to matters including, but not limited to, dress, behaviour, alcohol and food. No animals, dangerous articles, or controlled or prohibited substances may be brought on the Holiday and/or vessel.

7.3 For your safety and security, or that of other Passengers, it may be necessary for servants or agents of FOCL to search Passengers, their cabins or their luggage. You will allow this to take place when authorised by the Captain or a security or other officer of the vessel, and you agree to follow any instructions or orders in this regard.

7.4 You will be responsible for any loss or damage caused by you during the Cruise Holiday to any property or person or other third party or FOCL, no matter how that loss or damage is caused. If you cause such loss or damage then FOCL may require you immediately or at any time to pay to FOCL an amount sufficient to cover, or on account of, any loss or damage so caused.

8. LIABILITY: 8.1 The liability of the Tour Operator and FOCL and any other party that may be involved in the supply of services in connection with this Contract may be limited by international conventions including those relating to carriage by sea and air, in the case of carriage by sea, including the Athens Convention 1974 (as amended), carriage by air, including the Warsaw Convention 1929 (as amended by The Hague Protocol 1955) or the Montreal Convention 1999 or otherwise and hotel stays, including the Paris Convention 1962, and in the case of all such conventions, any applicable Protocols or other amendments as made from time to time. Where these or any other conventions apply to any service or accommodation supplied during any part of the Cruise Holiday, whether or not directly supplied by the Tour Operator or FOCL, then insofar as the Tour Operator or FOCL may have any responsibility or liability, the limits of liability afforded by such conventions apply to the Tour Operator or FOCL and any liability or responsibility of the Tour Operator or FOCL shall be determined accordingly.

8.2 Save as provided otherwise in these Conditions, all arrangements for the provision of transport of Passengers, their luggage and personal property, accommodation and other services are in addition to these Conditions subject to the rules, regulations, and Conditions of airlines and owners or operators of any other ship or vessel used and all other services such as transfer operators, hotels, etc. These are deemed to be expressly accepted by the Passenger and are herein expressly incorporated into the Contract.

8.3 Unless otherwise provided for by force of the law or in accordance with these Conditions the liabilities, obligations and responsibilities of the Tour Operator or FOCL and any other party involved in the supply of services in connection with these Conditions shall be limited in accordance with the limits applicable to a carrier under the Athens Convention 1974 (Carriage of Passengers and Luggage by Sea), as modified and set out in parts I and II of Schedule 6 of the Merchant Shipping Act 1995 (together the "Convention").

8.4 The liability of the Tour Operator, FOCL or any other party that may be involved in the supply of services in connection with these Conditions for death or illness of, or personal injury to, any Passenger, or the loss of or damage to the luggage of any Passenger is limited to the maximum amounts specified in Articles 7 and 8 of the Convention save in the case of valuables (as defined in Article 5 of the Convention) where no liability is accepted unless such valuables have been deposited with the carrier for the agreed purpose of safe-keeping, in which case liability will be limited as provided for in Article 8(3) of the Convention. Please see paragraph 9 below which sets out further details in relation to luggage claims.

8.5 No responsibility is accepted for loss or damage caused to you by failure to perform the Contract, or improper performance of these Conditions, where the failure or improper performance happens without fault on the part of the Tour Operator or FOCL or other operator or supplier of services included in the Holiday Contract because:

(i) it is attributable to your fault; or

(ii) it is unforeseeable and unavoidable and attributable to a third party who does not supply services included in the Holiday; or

(iii) it is due to unusual or unforeseeable circumstances i.e. due to an event of Force Majeure which is beyond the control of FOCL, the consequences of which could not have been avoided by the exercise of due care, or an event which FOCL or other operator or supplier of services could not foresee or forestall including but not limited to unusual weather or sea conditions.

8.6 No liability is accepted in respect of arrangements or commitments made by you or on your behalf that are not part of the Cruise Holiday, including, but not limited to arrangements that you make directly, or via the Tour Operator or FOCL acting as agent only, with a service provider other than the Tour Operator or FOCL.

8.7 Insofar as the Tour Operator or FOCL may be liable to a Passenger in respect of claims arising out of carriage by air, land or sea, the Tour Operator and FOCL shall be entitled to all the rights, defences, immunities and limitations available, respectively, to the actual carriers and under the Convention and any other applicable conventions and nothing in these conditions shall be deemed as a waiver thereof.

8.8 If any term, condition, section or provision becomes invalid or be so judged, the remaining terms, conditions, sections and provisions shall be deemed severable and shall remain in force.

8.9 The Tour Operator and FOCL shall not in any circumstances be liable to a Passenger for any loss or anticipated loss of profits, loss of revenue, loss of use, loss of contract or other opportunity nor for any other consequential or indirect loss or damage of a similar nature.

8.10 In the event that the Tour Operator or FOCL has any legal liability for any loss of or damage to property otherwise than in accordance with the Convention and any other applicable conventions including the Montreal conventions then its liability shall not at any time exceed £250 per Passenger and the Tour Operator and FOCL shall not at any time be liable for loss of or to any money, jewellery, valuables or medication. Passengers are advised not to pack money, jewellery, other valuables or medication in their luggage and must ensure that their personal possessions and valuables are with them at all times.

8.11 All carriage (by land, air and sea) is subject to the conditions of carriage of the actual operator / carrier. These may limit or exclude liability. Save as otherwise provided in these Conditions, the carriers' conditions of carriage are expressly incorporated into the Contract and are deemed to be expressly accepted by the Passenger at the time of the Booking. Copies of these Conditions are available on request from the Tour Operator.

8.12 The Tour Operator and/or FOCL's liability will not at any time exceed that of any carrier under the carrier's conditions of carriage and/or applicable or incorporated conventions.

8.13 In the case of a cancellation or a delay in departure of the cruise holiday where a stay of one or more nights or a stay additional to that intended by the passenger becomes necessary, where and when physically possible, the Tour Operator and/or FOCL shall offer passengers departing from port terminals, free of charge, adequate accommodation on board, or ashore, and transport to and from the port terminal and place of accommodation. For each passenger the Tour Operator and/or FOCL reserves the right, at its discretion, to limit the total cost of accommodation, not Including transport to and from the port terminal and place of accommodation to EUR 80 per night, for a maximum of three nights.

9.

If the matter cannot be rectified immediately, the Tour Operator and FOCL must be notified in writing as soon as practicable. In any event you must give notice of any claim in writing to the Tour Operator and FOCL within two months of the end of your Holiday. Special extra provisions set out below apply to loss, damage or delay to luggage and to claims for illness or injury. Failure to give notice in accordance with these provisions may mean that the matter cannot be properly investigated or rectified and this may affect your rights.

9.2 In the case of any claim for loss, damage or delay to luggage please note that (1) it is assumed that luggage has been delivered undamaged to you unless notice is given immediately to the Tour Operator and FOCL; (2) you must claim against the carrier or carriers responsible for actually performing the carriage where the loss or damage happened immediately if and when the loss or damage is or becomes apparent, and in any event within 15 days from the date of redelivery, or when redelivery should have taken place; (3) if you wish to make any sort of claim against the Tour Operator and FOCL, you must notify the Tour Operator and FOCL directly in writing with a copy of notification to the carrier or carriers responsible for actually performing the carriage and if asked to do so, assign your rights against such carrier or carriers to FOCL. Any damages payable by the Tour Operator and FOCL up to the limits set out under the Convention will be reduced in proportion by any contributory negligence of the Passenger and by the maximum deductible under Article 8(4) of the Convention.

9.3 Any illness or injury caused by or that you think may be attributable to anything that happened during the Holiday must be reported to the service provider or providers responsible for the relevant part or parts of the Holiday and to the Tour Operator and FOCL (with a copy of any such notification to any other provider or providers) immediately that the illness or injury becomes apparent.

9.4 Unless a longer period is provided for by force of law, any claim shall be time barred if proceedings are not brought within 2 years of the end of the Holiday.

9.5 Some disputes involving claims up to a limited amount may (subject to the agreement of you, the Tour Operator and FOCL) be referred to independent arbitration or conciliation under schemes devised by arrangement with the Passenger Shipping Association or ABTA. Details will be supplied on request. The schemes may not apply to claims arising out of injury or illness.

10. MEDICAL ASSISTANCE: 10.1 In compliance with Flag State requirements each vessel has on board a qualified doctor and a medical centre equipped for first aid and minor conditions only. The Passenger hereby acknowledges and accepts at the time of booking that the medical centre is not equipped like a land based hospital and the doctor is not a specialist. Neither the Tour Operator, FOCL, the doctor, nor the carrier shall be liable to the Passenger as a result of any inability to treat any medical condition as a result.

10.2 At FOCL's sole discretion FOCL may afford you assistance if you suffer illness, personal injury or death during the period of your Holiday. Such assistance may take the form of advice, guidance or initial financial aid where appropriate and subject to FOCL's discretion. Any expenses reasonably incurred for you or on your behalf (including medical treatment and repatriation expenses) shall be repayable by you to FOCL in full on demand (whether or not you have insurance cover for some or all of the expenses). In any case where such assistance is necessary or provided you give FOCL authority to contact any third party including your general practitioner or other medical practitioner and/or your insurers to obtain any necessary information or documentation.

10.3 The Passenger acknowledges that whilst there is a qualified doctor on board the vessel, it is a Passenger's obligation and responsibility to seek medical assistance if necessary during the Cruise Holiday and the Passenger will be solely responsible to pay for any on board medical services including but not limited to any medical treatments provided and repatriations which will be charged in line with private medical health care fees and charges.

10.4 In the event of illness or accident, Passengers may have to be landed ashore by the carrier and/or the master for medical treatment.

Medical facilities and standards vary from port to port; neither the Tour Operator or FOCL nor the carrier makes any representations or warranties in relation to the standard of medical treatment ashore.

10.5 The on board doctor's professional opinion as to the fitness of a Passenger to board the vessel or to continue the Holiday is final and binding on all Passengers.

10.6 Where a Passenger is refused embarkation as a result of health and/or fitness to travel, then neither the carrier nor the Tour Operator or FOCL has any liability to the Passenger.

10.7 The Tour Operator, FOCL and/or the carrier and/or the health authorities at any port shall be entitled to administer a public health questionnaire. The Passenger shall supply accurate information regarding symptoms of any illness including but not limited to gastrointestinal illness and H1n1. The carrier may deny boarding to any Passenger that it considers in its sole discretion to have symptoms of any illness including viral or bacterial illness including but not limited to norovirus and H1n1. Any refusal by a Passenger to complete a questionnaire may result in denied boarding and cancellation charges applied in line with clause Cancellation by You.

10.8 The vessel's doctor has the authority to require a Passenger to remain in their cabin for health and safety reasons should they become ill during the Holiday.

10.9 Passengers are reminded that some foods may cause an allergic reaction in certain people due to intolerance of some ingredients. If the Passenger has any known allergies, or is intolerant of any food, it is his/her responsibility to report this to the carrier upon boarding the vessel and certainly before consuming any food. The Tour Operator and/or FOCL shall have no liability to any Passenger who has failed to notify the vessel of an allergy or food intolerance and becomes ill as a result of eating foods which they are allergic or intolerant to. Further, and irrespective of any notification provided to the Tour Operator and FOCL or to the carrier of any food allergies or intolerances, it remains your decision as to whether or not to consume any particular food items and you consume all food at your own risk. The Tour Operator and FOCL cannot be held responsible for the food allergies and intolerances of individual Passengers.

11. MATERIAL FACTS: 11.1 It is a condition of the Contract for the supply of the Cruise Holiday (including carriage and insurance), that all material facts have been disclosed to the Tour Operator and FOCL as if the Tour Operator and FOCL was an insurer. A material fact is a fact likely to influence insurers in the acceptance or assessment of insurance (for example, details of your state of health or that of a close relative). Where there is doubt as to whether a fact is 'material' then it should be disclosed.

12. MOBILITY, MEDICAL MATTERS AND SPECIFIC ASSISTANCE: 12.1 You must give written notice to the Tour Operator and FOCL at the time of Booking of any disability, mobility problem, or any other condition requiring special care, specific assistance, attention or treatment. If any such condition arises after the Cruise Holiday is booked then written notice must be given to the Tour Operator and FOCL as soon as possible, and In any event, no later than 48 hours prior to embarkation. The Tour Operator and FOCL shall make all reasonable endeavours to provide any specified assistance where requested.

12.2 If you are travelling as a sole traveller who requires specific assistance, the Tour Operator and FOCL reserves the right to require an able bodied person to accompany you.

12.3 If, in the reasonable opinion of the Tour Operator and FOCL, a Passenger's disability, mobility problem or medical condition cannot be accommodated safely by the vessel, ports or associated infrastructure or carrying a Passenger with such disability or medical condition would result in FOCL breaching national and international maritime safety standards, then FOCL reserves the right to refuse Passage. If refusal is based upon this paragraph 12.2 then the Passenger shall be provided with reasons, in writing, by FOCL within 5 days of refusal. In any such event, the Passenger shall have the option of reimbursement or, If possible, re-routing.

12.4 Children less than 6 months old and women who will be more than 24 weeks pregnant at the end of the Holiday are not permitted to travel. It is recommended that medical advice is sought prior to Booking for children aged between 6 – 12 months.

16.1 is not complied with by you. Final Cruise Holiday documents cannot be released until FOCL has received notification of your insurance policy details.
