By making a booking, the Group Leader agrees on behalf of all persons detailed on the booking that:
A booking is made with us when you:
Upon receipt, if you believe that any details on your booking confirmation or any other document are wrong you must advise us immediately as changes cannot be made later and it may harm your rights if we are not notified of any inaccuracies in any document within ten days of our sending it out.
We endeavour to ensure that all the information, translations and prices both on our website and in any advertising material that we publish are accurate, however, occasionally changes and errors occur and we reserve the right to correct prices, star ratings, minor transfer timetables (see clause 13) and other details in such circumstances. You must check the current price and all other details relating to the travel arrangements that you wish to book before you make your booking.
We reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time, in particular those listed on our website. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices. You must check the price of your chosen travel arrangements at the time of booking.
We strongly suggest that you acquire adequate travel insurance. You must be satisfied that your insurance fully covers all your personal requirements including pre-existing medical conditions, cancellation charges, medical expenses and repatriation in the event of accident or illness. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance cover, we will not be liable for any losses howsoever arising, in respect of which insurance cover would otherwise have been available.
We strongly suggest that your insurance policy includes provisions, covering you for (but not limited to) the following situations:
5. Events Beyond Our Control
Except where otherwise expressly stated in these Booking Conditions we will not be liable or pay you compensation if our contractual obligations to you are affected by Events Beyond Our Control. For the purpose of these Booking Conditions, this means any event beyond our or our supplier’s control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures had been taken. Examples include warfare and acts of terrorism (and threat thereof), civil strife, significant risks to human health such as the outbreak of serious disease at the travel destination, global epidemics or pandemics (including, but not limited to the ongoing effects of Covid-19 or any new strain of the coronavirus), or natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes or weather conditions which make it impossible to travel safely to the travel destination or remain at the travel destination, the act of any government or other national or local authority including any port or river authorities, industrial dispute, labour strikes, lock closure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, chemical or biological disaster, unavoidable technical problems with transport, traffic congestion/restrictions and all similar events out of our or the supplier(s) concerned’s control.
Up to date travel advice can be obtained from the UK’s Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office, which you can visit at: https://www.gov.uk/travelaware.
Non British passport holders, including other EU nationals, should obtain up to date advice on passport and visa requirements from the Embassy, High Commission or Consulate of your destination or country(ies) through which you are travelling.
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.
Brexit Implications: please note that certain travel arrangements may be affected as a result of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union. This could include an unavailability of certain flight routes (where applicable), access to certain ports and airports etc. Please rest assured that this is something we will continue to monitor and will advise our customers as soon as possible if we become aware of any confirmed bookings that will be affected. However, since this is something which is completely unprecedented and outside our control, any such changes would be treated as Events Beyond Our Control,
Where an Event Beyond Our Control occurs, we will endeavour to provide suitable alternative arrangements or refunds where possible. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide a refund and we will not be liable to pay you any additional compensation.
6. Special Requests
Any special requests must be advised to us at the time of booking e.g. diet, room location, a particular facility at your accommodation etc. You should then confirm your requests in writing. Whilst every effort will be made by us to try and arrange your reasonable special requests, we cannot guarantee that they will be fulfilled. The fact that a special request has been noted on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation or that it has been passed on to the supplier is not confirmation that the request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not be a breach of contract on our part unless the request has been specifically confirmed by us. We do not accept bookings that are conditional upon any special request being met.
7. Disabilities and Medical Problems
We are not a specialist disabled tour company but 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 tour or single service travel arrangements, please provide us with full details before your booking is confirmed so that we can try to advise you as to the suitability of your chosen travel arrangements. We may require you to produce a doctor’s certificate certifying that you are fit to participate in your chosen tour or single service travel arrangements. Acting reasonably, if we are unable to properly accommodate the needs of the person(s) concerned, we will not confirm your booking or if you did not give us full details at the time of booking, we will cancel it and impose applicable cancellation charges when we become aware of these details.
8. Your Behaviour
All our customers are expected to conduct themselves in an orderly and acceptable manner and not to disrupt the enjoyment of others. If in our opinion, the opinion of any accommodation manager, driver, property owner, or 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 other customers 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 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 accommodation or other arrangements immediately. We will not have any further obligations to you and/or your party. No refunds for lost accommodation or any other arrangements 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 accommodation manager or other supplier prior to departure. 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.
9. Conditions of Suppliers
Many of the arrangements which make up your holiday are provided by independent suppliers. Those suppliers provide these services in accordance with their own terms and conditions which will form part of your contract with us. 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.
Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book or pay for whilst you are on the tour or single service travel arrangement are not part of your contracted arrangements with us. For any excursion or other tour that you book, your contract will be with the operator of the excursion or tour and not with us. Although we may recommend certain suppliers to you (e.g. childcare), we are not responsible for the provision of the excursion or tour or for anything that happens during the course of its provision by the operator.
11. Cutting Your Arrangements Short
If you are forced to return home early, we cannot refund the cost of any arrangements you have not used. If you cut short your holiday and return home early in circumstances where you have no reasonable cause for complaint about the standard of accommodation and services provided, we will not offer you any refund for that part of your holiday not completed, or be liable for any associated costs you may incur. Depending on the circumstances, your travel insurance may offer cover for curtailment and we suggest that any claim is made directly with them.
12. Law and Jurisdiction
These Booking Conditions are governed by English law and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute, claim or other matter which may arise between us (unless you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, in which case you can bring proceedings in your local court under Scottish or Northern Irish law, as applicable).
13. Foreign Office Advice
You are responsible for making yourself aware of Foreign Office advice in regard to the safety of the countries and areas in which you will be travelling and to make your decisions accordingly. Advice from the Foreign Office to avoid or leave a particular country may constitute Events Beyond Our Control (see clause 6).
14. If You Transfer, Change or Cancel Your Booking
Transfers: If you or any member of your party is prevented from travelling, that person(s) may transfer their place to someone else, subject to the following conditions:
You and the transferee remain jointly and severally liable for payment of all sums. If you are unable to find a replacement, cancellation charges as set out in this clause 18 will apply in order to cover our estimated costs. Otherwise, no refunds will be given for customers not travelling or for unused services.
Changes: If you wish to change any part of your booking after our booking confirmation has been issued, you must inform us in writing as soon as possible. This should be done by the first named person on 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 payment of an administration fee of £50 per person per change, as well as any costs and charges incurred by us and/or incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers in making this change. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the arrival date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Where we are unable to assist you and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking we will treat this as a cancellation by you.
Note: Certain single service arrangements may not be changeable after confirmation and any alteration may result in a cancellation charge of 100%.
Cancellations: If you, or any member of your party, decides to cancel your booking after it has been confirmed, the first named person on the booking must email us at our offices or, where necessary, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your notice of cancellation will only take effect when it is received in writing by us and will be effective from the date on which we receive it. Email is an acceptable method of notice in writing, however we would recommend the use of ‘read receipts’ where possible. Where you choose to correspond with us by email, you accept that our responses and all future correspondence shall also be by email.
Should one or more member of a party cancel, it may increase the per person holiday price of those still travelling and you will be liable to pay this increase.
Since we incur costs in cancelling your arrangements, you will have to pay the cancellation charges as follows (the cancellation charge detailed is calculated on the basis of the total cost payable by the person(s) cancelling excluding amendment charges which are not refundable in the event of the person(s) to whom they apply cancelling):
|Period before arrival date within which notification is received||Cancellation Charge|
|6 weeks or more||Deposit only|
|Between 6 weeks and 29 days||30% of tour price|
|Between 28 days and 14 days||50% of tour price|
|13 days or less||100% of tour price|
Please note that amendment charges are not refundable in any circumstances.
Important Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended or transferred after they have been confirmed and any alteration or cancellation could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% for that part of the arrangements in addition to the charges above.
If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges from your insurance provider. Where possible, we will deduct the cancellation charge(s) from any monies you have already paid to us.
15. If We Change or Cancel Your Booking
We may in certain circumstances be required to cancel your booking prior to your arrival in which case a full refund of all monies paid will be made to you. We regret we cannot meet any expenses or losses that you may incur as a result of change or cancellation.
Very rarely, we may be forced by Events Beyond Our Control (see clause 6) to change or cancel your travel service(s) after your arrival at the destination, in which case we will offer you alternative arrangements or a postponement of your booking. We are unable to offer refunds in the event of an Events Beyond Our Control however, where this is your preference, we will endeavour to refund you to the extent we are able to (i) reclaim payments made to suppliers or (ii) resell the arrangements. You must notify us of your choice within the deadline notified to you. If you fail to do so we will assume that you have chosen to accept the alternative arrangements or a postponement.
If this situation does occur, we regret we will be unable to pay you compensation or meet any costs or expenses you incur as a result.
We make every effort to ensure that your holiday arrangements run smoothly but if you do have a problem during your holiday, please inform the relevant supplier immediately who will endeavour to put things right.
If your complaint is not resolved locally, please contact a senior member of the Rosehill Travel staff at email@example.com. If the problem cannot be resolved and you wish to complain further, you must send formal written notice of your complaint to us at our head office within 28 days of the end of your stay, giving your booking reference and all other relevant information. Please keep your letter concise and to the point. This will assist us to quickly identify your concerns and speed up our response to you. Failure to follow the procedure set out in this clause may affect our and the applicable supplier’s ability to investigate your complaint, and will affect your rights under this contract.
