 Booking Confirmation

To confirm a booking, the party leader must complete and sign our booking form. He/she must be authorised to make the booking on the basis of these Booking Conditions by all persons named on the booking and their parent or guardian for all party members who are under 18 when the booking is made. By signing the booking form, the party leader confirms that he/she is so authorised. The party leader is responsible for making all payments due to us. The party leader must be at least 18 when the booking is made.

The completed signed booking form must then be sent to us together with the payments referred to in Payment terms & conditions, described.

As soon as we have received your booking form and all appropriate payments, we will, subject to availability, confirm your arrangements by issuing a confirmation invoice. This invoice will be sent to the party leader. Please check this invoice carefully as soon as you receive it. Please contact us immediately if any information which appears on the confirmation or any other document appears to be incorrect or incomplete as it may not be possible to make changes later. We regret we cannot accept any liability if we are not notified of any inaccuracy in any document within 10 days of our sending it out (4 days for tickets).

However we will do our best to correct any mistake notified to us outside these time limits but you must meet any potential costs involved in doing so. The only exception to this requirement to meet costs is where the mistake in question was made by us and there is good reason why you did not tell us about it within these time limits.If you wish to, you may contact us by e-mail for any of the reasons mentioned in these booking conditions (for example, to request an amendment) providing you do so to enquiries@marvelsonboard.co.uk.

Payment Terms & Conditions

In order to confirm your chosen arrangements, a deposit of 30% of total holiday cost, (or full payment if booking is made within 45 days of departure) must be paid at the time of booking. The remaining 70% of the payment is to be paid 45 days prior to the departure date. We accept online payments by credit cards and bank transfer.In order to secure particular flights, we may require a higher deposit than normal (to include the full cost of the flight element) to be paid at the time of booking. If this is the case we will advise you of this before you confirm your booking. If you wish to purchase the insurance policy we offer, all applicable premiums must also be paid at the time of booking.

The balance of the holiday cost must be received by us not less than 45 days prior to departure. This date will be shown on the confirmation invoice. Reminders are not sent.

If we do not receive all payments due (including any surcharge where applicable) in full and on time, we are entitled to assume that you wish to cancel your booking. In this case, we will be entitled to keep all deposits paid or due at that date. If we do not cancel straight away because you have promised to make payment, you must pay the cancellation charges described below on the cancellation policy, depending on the date we reasonably treat your booking as cancelled.

Changes to your Confirmed Holiday

Should you wish to make any changes to your confirmed holiday, you must notify us in writing as soon as possible. Whilst we will endeavor to assist, we cannot guarantee we will be able to meet any such requests. Where we can, the party leader is responsible to cover any costs incurred by ourselves and any costs or charges incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers. For flight inclusive bookings, you must pay the charges levied by the airline concerned. As most airlines do not permit name changes after tickets have been issued for any reason, these charges are likely to be the full cost of the flight.

Cancellation Policy

Should you or any member of your party need to cancel your chosen holiday once it has been confirmed, the party leader must immediately advise us by e-mail. Your notice of cancellation will only be effective when it is received by e-mail by us. As we incur costs from the time we confirm your booking, the following cancellation charges will be payable. Where the cancellation charge is shown as a percentage, this is calculated on the basis of the total cost payable by the person(s) canceling, excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges. Insurance premiums and amendment charges are non refundable in the event of the person(s) to whom they apply.

 45 days or more  10% of selling price (Administrative Fee)
 45-30 days  25% of selling price
 30-15 days  50% of selling price
 14-8 days  75% of selling price
 7 days or less  100% of selling price

No allowance or refund can be made for meals, rooms, excursions etc included in the price of your tour but not taken, nor can any refund be made for services that cannot be used due to lost, mislaid or destroyed travel tickets or vouchers. Part cancellation of a booking may result in increased costs for the remaining party members.

 Passports, visas and health requirements

We strongly advise that you must always consult your nationality's respectful authorities for passport & visa requirements and/or the Embassy or Consulate of the country(ies) to or through which you are intending to travel, on time but not later than the time of booking.

If you like you may consult the IATA Travel Centre. In addition to visa information, the IATA Travel Centre provides personalized advice for the preparation of your trip, including passport, health requirements, customs, airport tax and currency information.

You must always consult your local health authorities when travelling abroad. In addition you may consult the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Please be noted, that is your responsibility to ensure you are aware of all recommended vaccinations and health precautions in good time before departure.

It is the party leader's responsibility to ensure that all members of the party are in possession of all necessary travel and health documents before departure. All costs incurred in obtaining such documentation must be paid by you. We regret we cannot accept any liability if you or any member of your party are refused entry onto any transport or into any country due to failure on your part to carry correct documentation. If failure to have any necessary travel or other documents results to fines, surcharges or other financial penalty being imposed on us, you will be responsible for reimbursing us accordingly.

Complaints

In the unlikely event that you have any reason to complain or experience any problems with your holiday whilst away, you must immediately inform our representative(s) and the supplier of the
service(s) in question. Any verbal notification must be put in writing and given to our representative and the supplier as soon as possible. Until we know about a problem or complaint, we cannot begin to resolve it. Most problems can be dealt with quickly. If you remain dissatisfied, however, you must write to us within 14days of your return day giving your booking reference and full details of your complaint. Only the party leader should write to us. For all complaints and claims which do not involve death, personal injury or illness, we regret we cannot accept liability if you fail to notify the complaint or claim entirely in accordance with this clause.

Fair Usage of Services/Premises included in your Confirmed Holiday Policy

When you book with us, you accept responsibility for any damage or loss caused by you or any member of your party. Full payment for any such damage or loss must be paid direct at the time to the accommodation owner or 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.

We expect all clients to have consideration for other people. If in our reasonable opinion or in the reasonable opinion of any other person in authority, you or any member of your party behaves in such a way as to cause or be likely to cause danger, upset or distress to any third party or damage to property, we are entitled, without prior notice, to terminate the holiday of the person(s) concerned. In this situation, the person(s) concerned will be required to leave the accommodation or other service. We will have no further responsibility toward such person(s) including any return travel arrangements. No refunds will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of the termination.

Special requirements and medical problems

If you have any special request, you must advise us in writing 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 this. For your own protection, you should obtain confirmation in writing from ourselves 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 conditional bookings, i.e. any booking which is 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.

If you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements as a result of any medical condition or disability (including any which affect the booking process), please tell us before you confirm your booking so that we can assist you in considering the suitability of the arrangements and/or making the booking. In any event, you must give us full details in writing at the time of booking and whenever any change in the condition or disability occurs. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. (If we reasonably feel unable to properly accommodate the particular needs of the person concerned, we must reserve the right to decline their reservation or, if full details are not given at the time of booking or the condition/ disability develops after booking, cancel when we become aware of these details).

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://europa.eu.int/comm/transport/air/safety/flywell_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 despatched 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 despatched - we will contact you as soon as possible if this occurs. Any change in the identity of the carrier, flight timings, and/or aircraft type will not entitle you to cancel or change to other arrangements without paying our normal charges except where specified in these conditions. If the carrier with whom you have a confirmed reservation becomes subject to an operating ban as above, as a result of which we/the carrier are unable to offer you a suitable alternative, the provisions of clause 8 (Changes and cancellation by us) will apply.

Excursions, Activities and Website's Information

The information presented in our website is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of the brochure going to print. Our website descriptions may refer to activities which are available in the area you are visiting. We have no involvement in any such activities which are neither run, supervised nor controlled in any way by us. They are provided by local operators who are entirely independent of us. They do not form any part of your contract with us even where we suggest particular operators/centres and/or assist you in booking such activities in any way. We cannot guarantee accuracy at all times of information given in relation to such activities or about the resorts/area you are visiting generally (except where this concerns the services which will form part of your contract) or that any particular excursion or activity which does not form part of our contract will take place as these services are not under our control. If you feel that any of the activities mentioned in our website which are not part of our contract are vital to the enjoyment of your holiday, write to us immediately and we will tell you the latest known situation. If we become aware of any material alterations to resort/area information and/or such outside activities which can reasonably be expected to affect your decision to book a holiday with us, we will pass on this information at the time of booking.
