3. USE OF OUR SITE
4. HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
5. IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER
This clause 5 only applies if you are a consumer.
5.1 If you are a consumer, you may only purchase Services from our site if you are at least 18 years old.
5.2 It is possible that certain Services on our site can only be purchased if you satisfy the legal age requirement for that product. We are not allowed by law to supply these Services to you if you do not satisfy these age requirements. If you are underage, please do not attempt to order these Services through our site.
6. IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS CUSTOMER
This clause 6 only applies if you are a business.
6.1If you are not a consumer, you confirm that you have authority to bind any business on whose behalf you use our site to purchase Services.
6.4 You and we agree that neither of us shall have any claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in this Contract.
7.HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
7.1Our shopping pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order at each page of the order process.
7.2 After you place an order, you will be asked to make your payment. We currently accept all major credit cards. Please follow the instructions of your issuer (including any multiple step payment and identity authentication as required) to complete the payment. Our acceptance of your order and payment will take place as described in clause 7.3.
7.3 We will confirm our acceptance of your order and payment received from you by sending you a confirmation through e-mail. The Contract between us is formed at the time we receive your payment for the Services in full and clear funds free of any lien or condition. The Order Confirmation will contain your detailed itinerary and other essential information you may require.
7.4 If we are unable to supply you with a Service for any reason (including any error on our site, withdrawal of the Services by its producer, or unavailability due to the bookings already having met their assigned capacity), we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Services, we will refund you the full amount charged as soon as possible.
7.5 Any changes to your order will require you to go through the above steps once again. Although we endeavour to provide competitive rates of Services to our customers, the nature of the travel services industry is such that prices can wildly fluctuate depending on a number of factors. You may thus find that what seems a simple change of order will carry a substantial change in price. You understand that this is completely out of our control and agree that you will have no claim against us in this respect.
7.6 All refunds as requested by you and approved by us shall be made only though the instrument of payment that you originally used while purchasing the Services from our site. “Services” in this clause refers to those Services that are the subject of an approved refund.
8. OUR RIGHT TO VARY THESE TERMS
8.1We amend these Terms from time to time. Please look at the top of this page to see when these Terms were last updated and which Terms were changed.
8.2Every time you order Services from us, the Terms in force at the time of your order will apply to the Contract between you and us.
8.3We may revise these Terms as they apply to your order from time to time to reflect changes in the travel industry or changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.
8.4If we have to revise these Terms as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the Contract if you are not happy with the changes. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected Services or just the Services you have yet to receive. In case of cancellation, while we will make reasonable efforts to arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, cancellation charges may apply depending on the nature of the Services and their producer. We are also entitled to retain a cancellation fee in such cases. The same rule applies where you request a rescheduling of your itinerary or a reissue or revalidation of your travel documents.
9.1The global travel industry operates largely on a paperless basis. You will receive your itinerary by email and you need to print out a copy for use while travelling. In the rare even that a producer of a travel service issues physical travel documents, we will inform you by email and you will have the option of collecting the documents from us at no additional cost or to have the documents couriered to you at a small additional cost. In such cases, we will contact you with an estimated delivery date.
9.2If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note that the courier package containing your documents have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery.
9.3Delivery of Services shall be completed when we deliver the documents to the address you gave us and the Services will be your responsibility from that time.
9.4You own the Services once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
10. PRICE OF SERVICES
10.1The prices of the Services will be as quoted on our site at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Services are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
10.2 The prices of the Services are based on certain assumptions about standard travel industry conventions and your travel profile, service configuration platform and service needs. If there is any material change to:
- (a) any rules, orders, laws or regulations governing the manner in which we or other travel agents may operate; or
- (b) the airfare or compensation structure available to us, by action of any airline, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) or any other applicable governing body; or
- (c) your travel profile, service platform configuration or service needs, any of which result in additional fees, losses, costs or expenses being incurred by us in providing the Services,
we have the right, from the date of the material change, to modify the prices in an amount as reasonably necessary to compensate us for such additional fees, losses, costs or expenses.
10.3 Despite the above, prices for our Services which you have already ordered and paid for in full shall not be affected.
10.4 In the case of physical travel documents, the price of Services does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order.
10.5 Our site contains a large number of Services. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Services on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of the Services you have ordered we will contact you to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Services at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. Please note that if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Services to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
11. HOW TO PAY
11.1 You can only pay for Services using a debit card or credit card. We accept the following cards: [LIST OF CREDIT AND DEBIT CARDS].
11.2 Deferred payment options are currently available only if you are a business that has passed our creditworthiness checks.

To activate the deferred payment option, you may be required to conclude a separate travel services agreement with us.
11.3 Payment for the Services and all applicable delivery charges is in advance. We will not charge your debit card or credit card until the booking is confirmed.
12. CANCELLATION, ALTERATION OR UNUSED PORTION OF SERVICES
12.1 Where any Services you request are cancelled, altered or unused by the corresponding traveller, we will credit your payment vehicle with amounts which are reimbursed (if any) net of all charges, fees, commission, taxes or other amounts deducted by the corresponding producer of the Services in accordance with their cancellation policy and rules and regulations. Issued tickets shall be immediately charged to your payment vehicle. If any reservation is cancelled and/or rebooked before a ticket and/or other travel documents are issued, there shall be no charge for such cancellation and/or rebooking. Additional fees are applicable for cancellations and/or changes of tickets and/or other travel documents which are issued with restrictions. You are responsible for such additional fees, which shall be included in the price of the Services.
13. OUR LIABILITY
13.1 In providing the Services under a Contract, we shall not be responsible or liable for any acts, errors, omissions, losses, injuries, death, property damage, accidents, delays, nonperformance or any other irregularities, or any indirect or consequential damages resulting therefrom, which may be caused by negligence, defaults, bankruptcies or any other actions of any producer of the Services or other persons engaged in the furnishing of travel and/or travel-related services hereunder. We do not guarantee or ensure the travel and/or travel-related services to be provided by any producer of the Services, the financial position of such producers and/or the reimbursement for any loss experienced as a result of the financial condition of any producers. In the event a producer of the Services defaults prior to providing the Services to you for which payment has been made, we will make reasonable efforts to obtain a refund against such Services from the defaulting producer.
