All such fees will be highlighted to you during the course of making your booking. When you make a booking, you guarantee that you have the authority to accept, and do accept these conditions on your behalf and on behalf of all members of your party and, further, if you are making a booking for more than one person, that you are responsible for all payments due from each and every party member for whom you are making a booking.

Bookings On Hold: Please note at our sole discretion we may allow you to hold bookings however we cannot guarantee the fare during this time. Most airlines will cancel provisional bookings if not ticketed immediately. Same rules apply when you make a booking online via our website. You must contact us immediately once you have made a booking online for the payment deadline.
Payments: Please note for most bookings full payment may be required IMMEDIATELY i.e. before you receive our confirmation invoice/eticket. If this applies you will be advised during the booking process. It is very important that you pay balances when due because failure to do so may lead to the cancellation of your holiday/flights and still leave you liable to pay cancellation charges, including any payments due to the airline or suppliers. All credit/charge card payments are subject to a surcharge, the credit card surcharge's cannot be refunded. Until full payment has been received the price of your booking may increase as a result of fuel or other surcharges which may be imposed by suppliers. If we need to make additional checks to verify your identity or if there is a problem with your payment we will not guarantee the price of your booking during this process. (Please note we may require copies of your passport and or additional identification in order to carry out checks if neccessary, if these documents are not provided we reserve the right to refuse your payment and refund your card including the cancellation of your bookings.)

Failure to provide this information in advance when requested may lead to the cancellation of your flights. The details required are your passport no, date of birth, passport expiry date, gender, nationality, issuing country and your full name. (Please note we may require copies of your passport and or additional identification in order to carry out checks if neccessary, if these documents are not provided we reserve the right to refuse your payment and refund your card including the cancellation of your bookings.)
