Please read our terms and conditions carefully in addition to the terms and conditions of the cruise line or other service provider your holiday is booked with. You are bound by their terms and conditions including cancellation and change policies. A link to a copy of the terms and conditions of the cruise line was sent to you at the time of booking.
If you or any member of your party have any disabilities, it is extremely important that we make the necessary arrangements to make your holiday go smoothly. We must therefore insist that you contact our offices on 0208 452 4612 before completing any reservation to ensure compatibility for the holiday that you chose.
Forever Cruises is a trading name of Lees Travel Limited. The following Booking Conditions together with the General Information contained on our website form the basis of your contract with Lees Travel Limited T/A Forever Cruises.Wing Yip, China House Unit G02, 401 Edgware Road, London, NW2 6GY. Please read them carefully as they set out our respective rights and obligations. By asking us to confirm your booking, we are entitled to assume that you have had the opportunity to read and have read these booking conditions and agree to them.
Except where otherwise stated, these booking conditions only apply to holiday arrangements which you book with us in the UK and which we agree to make, provide or perform (as applicable) as part of our contract with you. All references in these booking conditions to “holiday”, “booking”, “contract”, “package”, “tour” or “arrangements” mean such holiday arrangements unless otherwise stated.
In these Booking Conditions, “you” and “your” means all persons named on the booking (including anyone who is added or substituted at a later date) or any of them, as the context requires. “We”, “us” and “our” means Lees Travel Limited.
If you book a package holiday with us, once your package holiday has been confirmed we will accept responsibility for it in accordance with these Booking Conditions as an “organiser” under the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.
Deposit paid is non-refundable, and Balance to be paid 16 weeks before departure Local taxes, Resort fees not included. Airlines luggage and meals as per carrier’s policy. Transfers not included unless otherwise stated.
MAKING YOUR BOOKING
The first named person on the booking (“party leader”) must be authorised to make the booking on the basis of these booking conditions by all persons named on the booking and by their parent or guardian for all members who are under 18 when the booking is made. By making a booking the party leader confirms that he/she is so authorised and that all party members agree to be bound by these Booking Conditions. 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.
Subject to the availability of your chosen arrangements, we will confirm your holiday by issuing a confirmation invoice.
The confirmation invoice will be sent to the party leader. Please check this carefully as soon as you receive it. Contact us immediately if any information which appears on the confirmation, acknowledgement 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 inaccuracies in any document within 24 hours of you receiving it. We will do our best to rectify any mistake notified to us outside these time limits but you must meet any costs involved in doing so.
The booking information that you provide to us will be passed on only to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements or other persons necessary for the provision of your travel arrangements. The information may therefore be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary and religious requirements.
You will be required to pay a deposit or make full payment for your booking at the time of booking. Where you only pay a deposit you must pay the full balance by the balance due date notified to you (which is usually 16 weeks before travel). If full payment is not received by the balance due date, we will notify the principal(s) or supplier(s) who may cancel your booking and charge the cancellation fees set out in their Terms and Conditions. Where an extra “booking charge” applies this will have been advised at the time of booking. From 13th January 2018, it is now law that no additional credit card charges will be added to your holiday booking, unless agreed to at the time of booking. A credit card will no longer be accepted for final balance payments. If you wish to pay your final balance by cheque, please ensure that we receive this with enough time to process the payment and for clearing before the balance due date, failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your holiday due to non-payment.
Many principals and suppliers require you to take out travel insurance as a condition of booking with them. In any event, we highly advise that you take out a policy of insurance in order to cover you and your party against the cost of cancellation by you; the cost of assistance (including repatriation) in the event of accident or illness; loss of baggage and money; and other expenses.
Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book or pay for locally whilst you are on holiday are not part of your package holiday provided by us. For any excursion or other tour that you book locally your contract will be with the operator of the excursion and not with us and we will not be held responsible for anything that happens during the course of an excursion purchased locally.
All the holidays we sell come with protection for your money. If you buy a single travel service then this might not apply. Package holidays are protected by the package organiser. We have arranged ATOL protection for our Flight-Plus holidays (our ATOL number is 4210). A Flight-Plus is where you purchase through us, at the same time or within a day of each other, a flight plus overseas accommodation and/or car hire from separate suppliers (i.e. not a package holiday). When you buy an ATOL protected flight inclusive holiday from us you will receive an ATOL Certificate. This lists what is financially protected, where you can get information on what this means for you and who to contact if things go wrong. On all Flight Plus holiday arrangements, your money is ATOL protected meaning that you will be able to continue with your holiday or receive a refund of the amount paid to us in the unlikely event of our insolvency or the insolvency of your service providers. Please note however that we have no liability beyond that for insolvency as set out in the ATOL scheme, because we act as agent of the suppliers
In respect of our Flight-Plus holidays, we are obliged to tell you that we or the suppliers of the services you have bought will provide you with the services you have bought (or a suitable alternative). In some cases, where neither we nor the supplier are able to do so for reasons of insolvency, an alternative ATOL holder may provide you with the services you have bought or a suitable alternative (at no extra cost to you). You agree to accept that in those circumstances, the alternative ATOL holder will perform those obligations and you agree to pay any money outstanding to be paid by you under your contract to that alternative ATOL holder. However, you also agree that in some cases it will not be possible to appoint an alternative ATOL holder, in which case you will be entitled to make a claim under the ATOL scheme (or your credit card issuer where applicable).
DISPATCH OF DOCUMENTS
All documents (e.g. invoices/tickets) that require to be posted will be sent to you by First Class post, however in most instances they will be emailed to the address or addresses provided at the time of booking. Once documents leave our offices, either by post or by email, we will not be responsible for their loss unless such loss is due to our negligence.
PASSPORTS, VISAS AND HEALTH
Your specific passport and visa requirements, and other immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates. We do not accept responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with any passport, visa or immigration requirements. Note: Clients not holding passports marked “British Citizen” must check the applicable requirements with the respective Embassy or Consulate of the countries they are visiting or the British Foreign Office. Please ensure that you comply with the applicable passport and visa requirements and that you allow sufficient time to obtain them.
Machine readable passports are required for all travellers to or via the U.S. All children must have their own passports especially when travelling to the U.S. All passports must be valid for at least six (6) months by the end of your journey.
Clients travelling to the U.S. must apply for their visa prior to departure on the following website https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov (there will be a minor charge for this service).
For regular updates on visa requirements to other destinations or any conflicts in particular regions we recommend you check with the Foreign Commonwealth office website http://www.fco.gov.uk or call them on 0207 270 1500
Recommended inoculations for travel may change at any time and you should consult with your doctor or the appropriate Embassy or Consulate for up to date information. It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain all the necessary inoculations in relation to your trip.
FINAL TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS
Please ensure that all your travel, passport, visa and insurance documents are in order and that you arrive in plenty of time for checking in at the Airport/Port of Embarkation. Please bear in mind any instructions on the documents issued, especially any instructions for picking up transfers during the course of your holiday.
CANCELLATION and AMENDMENT
Any cancellation or amendment request must be sent to us in writing either by email or by post to Cancellations, Forever Cruises Wing Yip, China House Unit G02, 401 Edgware Road, London, NW2 6GY and will not take effect until received by us. If you cancel or amend your booking the principal(s) or supplier(s) cancellation or amendment charges will apply and which may be up to 100% of the cost of the travel arrangements
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR 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 endeavour to assist, we cannot guarantee we will be able to meet any such requests. Where we can assist, an amendment fee of £50 per person/per booking will be payable together with any costs incurred by ourselves and any costs or charges incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers or any third party. Please note: 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.
IF YOU CANCEL YOUR HOLIDAY
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 in writing. Your notice of cancellation will only be effective when it is received by us in writing at our offices. If you notify us by email you should receive a reply within 24 hours; if you do not receive one you should assume your email has not been received and must contact us again immediately.
All deposits are non-refundable. Once final balance is paid 16 weeks prior to departure the holiday carries a 100% cancellation charge.
In some circumstances our holidays carry a 100% cancellation fee will apply as airlines &/or hotels may charge in full at the time of booking and if applicable to your booking this will be stated on your confirmation invoice. If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy you may be able to claim these charges
IF WE CHANGE/CANCEL YOUR HOLIDAY
It is unlikely that we will have to make any changes to your travel arrangements, but occasionally this may become necessary and we reserve the right to do so at any time. Most of these changes will be minor and we will advise you of them at the earliest possible opportunity. We also reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel your travel arrangements. However, we will not cancel your travel arrangements less than one week prior to your departure date except for reasons of force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance.
If we are unable to provide the booked travel arrangements you can either have a refund of the monies paid to us or accept an offer of an alternative holiday of comparable standard, if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value). If it is necessary to cancel your travel arrangements, we will pay to you compensation as set out below. If we make a major change to your holiday, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure. A major change is, for example, one that involves a change of UK airport (excluding Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted), a change of your accommodation to a lower grade than booked or a change of resort location. You will have the choice to either accept an offer of an alternative holiday comparable in standard from us, if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value), or cancelling your holiday booking and refund all monies paid. In all cases, except where a major change arises due to reasons of force majeure, we will pay compensation as shown below.
Compensation per person
Over 12 weeks: nil
84-55 days: £20 per person
54-30 days: £30 per person
29-0 days: £40 per person
COMPLAINTS AND PROBLEMS
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 local representative or agent (if we have one) and the supplier of the service(s) in question. Any verbal notification must be put in writing and given to our representative/agent and the supplier as soon as possible. If we do not have or you cannot contact our local representative or agent and any complaint or problem is not resolved to your satisfaction by the supplier, you must contact us in the UK using the contact details we have provided you with during your holiday, giving us full details and a contact number. Until we know about a complaint or problem, we cannot begin to resolve it. Most problems can be dealt with quickly. If you remain dissatisfied, however, you must write to us within 28 days of your return to the UK 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. If you fail to follow this simple complaints procedure, your right to claim any compensation you may otherwise have been entitled to may be affected or even lost as a result.
FORCE MAJEURE, EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL
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.
FOREIGN OFFICE ADVICE
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office publishes regularly updated travel information on its website www.fco.gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo which you are recommended to consult before booking and in good time before departure.
THE COST OF YOUR HOLIDAY
We reserve the right to increase or decrease the prices of unsold holidays at any time. We also reserve the right to make changes to and correct errors in advertised prices at any time before your holiday is confirmed. Once the price of your chosen holiday has been confirmed, then, subject to the correction of errors, we will only increase or decrease the price 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 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 adverse or favourable 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, will we levy a surcharge. 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. We promise not to levy a surcharge within 30 days of departure. 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.
Please note, it is the requirements and standards of the country in which any services which make up your holiday are provided which apply to those services and not those of the UK. As a general rule, these requirements and standards will not be the same as the UK and may sometimes be lower.
In accordance with EU Directive (EC) No 2111/2005, we are required to bring to your attention the existence of a “Community list” which contains details of air carriers who are subject to an operating ban within the EU. The Community list is available for inspection at http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air-ban/list_en.htm.
We are required to advise you of the actual carrier(s) (or, if the actual 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.
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. We are not always in a position at the time of booking to confirm the flight timings which will be used in connection with your flight. The flight timings shown on our website and/or detailed on your confirmation invoice are for guidance only and are subject to alteration and confirmation. Flight timings are outside our control. They are set by airlines and are subject to various factors including air traffic control restrictions, weather conditions, potential technical problems and the ability of passengers to check in on time.
The flight timings given on booking are for general guidance only and are subject to change. Specific instructions relating to departure and travel arrangements will be sent with your air or other travel tickets approximately 2 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 (if advised) will not entitle you to cancel or change to other arrangements without paying our normal charges except where specified in these conditions.
SPECIAL REQUESTS & MEDICAL PROBLEMS
If you have any special requests please advise us at the time of booking. Although we will forward any such requests to the relevant supplier (e.g. hotel, airline etc.) we regret that we cannot guarantee this prior to departure and any failure to meet your special request will not be deemed as any breach of contract on our part.
If you have any medical condition or disability which may affect your booking arrangements you must advise us, in writing, at the time of booking giving us full details. If we are unable to properly accommodate your particular needs we will reserve the right to decline your booking but obviously every effort will be made to assist, where possible.
Please note that the information as to the distance from the city centre and the location of the hotel on the maps provided are for indicative purposes only. If you require the hotel to be within a certain distance from the city centre or near a particular location we recommend that you check on the hotel’s own website.
It is mandatory that you or a member of your party travel with a recognised credit card as this will be required when checking into hotels or collecting your hire car, for example.
PRE TRAVEL ADVICE
The Foreign Commonwealth Travel Advice Unit may have issued information about your holiday destination. You are advised to check this information on BBC (Cefax) page 470 or on their website www.fco.gov.uk.
HOTEL & CRUISE SHIP RATINGS
The hotel and cruise ship ratings featured in any Forever Cruises web site are offered as a general guide and do not necessarily represent any official grading system. Actual standards may vary between hotels of the same grade in different countries and even in the same country. Different countries have different standards; a 3/4/5* hotel in one country is not necessarily equivalent to a 3/4/5* hotel in another country.
Please note that the hotels and cruise ships booked by us for you are not exclusive to Lees Travel Limited T/A Forever Cruises. We are not responsible for any limitation in facilities because of other hotel, or ship guests or their activities. Lees Travel Limited T/A Forever Cruises does not take responsibility for hotel or ship content (including images, facility listings etc) displayed on our website. Hotels and ships may change facilities and property features without prior notification to Lees Travel Limited T/A Forever Cruises.
Images of room or cabin types do not necessarily represent the bed configuration of the room being purchased. For example, a quad room in North America may invariably consist of two double beds and a room for two will be one double although in Europe this may be two single beds. Also, there may be an additional charge for extra beds or cots. Therefore, if you have a special requirement please inform us at the time of booking and any special request will be forwarded to the supplier for consideration but is not guaranteed by us and does not form any part of our contract with you.
CARRYING PROOF OF BOOKING
You should ensure that you travel with your booking confirmation, e tickets and any other travel documentation (including your passport and relevant visa, if required) at all times. We will not be liable should any Supplier not provide you with the booked product or service if you do not provide the appropriate documents
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE US
Lees Travel Limited T/A Forever Cruises relies on the information that you provide as being accurate and therefore cannot be held responsible if your e-tickets do not arrive due to an incorrect email address. You must inform us immediately of a change of address, telephone number, and email address
In the event of any flight delay or cancellation at your UK or overseas point of departure, the airline is responsible for providing such assistance as is legally required by the Denied Boarding Regulations (see below). The ferry, tunnel or rail operator is similarly responsible in relation to any delayed or cancelled sea crossing or international rail departure. Except where otherwise stated on our website, we regret we cannot provide any assistance in such circumstances other than information and advice to the extent we are in a position to do so.
We regret we are not in a position to offer you any assistance in the event of delay at your outward or homeward point of departure. Any airline concerned may however provide refreshments etc. We cannot accept liability for any delays. In addition, we will not be liable for any delay unless it has a significant effect on your holiday arrangements.
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 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 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 any 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 any boarding as the full amount of your entitlement to any compensation or other payment is covered by the airline’s obligations under the Denied Boarding Regulations. If, for any reason, we make any payment to you or a third party which the airline is responsible for in accordance with the Denied Boarding Regulations, you must, when requested, assign to us the rights you have or had to claim the payment in question from the airline. If your airline does not comply with these rules you may complain to the Civil Aviation Authority on 020 7453 6888 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or see http://www.caa.co.uk
BEHAVIOUR AND DAMAGE
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 (reasonably estimated if not precisely known) must be paid direct at the time to the accommodation owner or manager or other supplier or to us as soon as possible. If the actual cost of the loss or damage exceeds the amount paid where estimated, you must pay the difference once known. If the actual cost is less than the amount paid, the difference will be refunded. You will also 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. You should ensure you have appropriate travel insurance to protect you if this situation arises.
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.
OUR LIABILITY TO YOU
We promise to make sure that the holiday arrangements we have agreed to make, perform or provide as applicable as part of our contract with you are made, performed or provided with reasonable skill and care. This means that, subject to these booking conditions, we will accept responsibility if, for example, you suffer death or personal injury or your contracted holiday arrangements are not provided as promised or prove deficient as a result of the failure of ourselves, our employees, agents or suppliers to use reasonable skill and care in making, performing or providing, as applicable, your contracted holiday arrangements. Please note it is your responsibility to show that reasonable skill and care has not been used if you wish to make a claim against us. In addition, we will only be responsible for what our employees, agents and suppliers do or do not do if they were at the time acting within the course of their employment (for employees) or carrying out work we had asked them to do (for agents and suppliers).
Please note, we cannot accept responsibility for any services 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 on our website and we have not agreed to arrange them and any excursion you purchase in resort. In addition, regardless of any wording used by us on our website or elsewhere, we only promise to use reasonable skill and care as set out above and we do not have any greater or different liability to you.
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. Please note, however, our obligation is to exercise reasonable skill and care. We do not make any representation or commitment that all services will comply with applicable local laws and regulations and failure to comply does not automatically mean we have not exercised reasonable skill and care.
We will not be liable where any failure in the performance of the contract is due to you or a third party unconnected with the provision of the travel arrangements and where the failure is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall. Our liability, except in cases involving death, injury or illness, shall be limited to a maximum of 2 times the cost of your travel arrangements. Our liability will also be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to: a) The contractual terms of the companies that provide the transportation for your travel arrangements. These terms are incorporated into this contract; and b) Any relevant international convention, for example the Montreal Convention in respect of travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of accommodation, which limit the amount of compensation that you can claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss, damage and delay to luggage. We are to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitation of compensation contained in these or any conventions. Copies of the transport companies’ contractual terms, or the international conventions, can be provided upon request. Under EU law (Regulation 261/2004) you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from your airline in cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. However reimbursement in such cases will not automatically entitle you to a refund of your holiday cost from us. If any payments to you are due from us, any payment made to you by the airline will be deducted from this amount. If your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to the Air Transport Users’ Council on 020 7240 6061 www.auc.org.uk
PROMPT ASSISTANCE IN RESORT
If the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed as a result of failures attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the services, or as a result of failures due to unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised, or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall, and you suffer an injury or other material loss, we will offer you such prompt assistance as is reasonable in the circumstances.

“Your Financial Protection: When you buy an ATOL protected flight or flight inclusive holiday from us you will receive an ATOL Certificate. This lists what is financially protected, where you can get information on what this means for you and who to contact if things go wrong.”
“We, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL Certificate, will provide you with the services listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative). In some cases, where neither we nor the supplier are able to do so for reasons of insolvency, an alternative ATOL holder may provide you with the services you have bought or a suitable alternative (at no extra cost to you). You agree to accept that in those circumstances the alternative ATOL holder will perform those obligations and you agree to pay any money outstanding to be paid by you under your contract to that alternative ATOL holder. However, you also agree that in some cases it will not be possible to appoint an alternative ATOL holder, in which case you will be entitled to make a claim under the ATOL scheme (or your credit card issuer where applicable).”
“If we, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL certificate, are unable to provide the services listed (or a suitable alternative, through an alternative ATOL holder or otherwise) for reasons of insolvency, the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust may make a payment to (or confer a benefit on) you under the ATOL scheme. You agree that in return for such a payment or benefit you assign absolutely to those Trustees any claims which you have or may have arising out of or relating to the non-provision of the services, including any claim against us, the travel agent (or your credit card issuer where applicable). You also agree that any such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if that other body has paid sums you have claimed under the ATOL scheme.”
