Booking Conditions



1.Our Agreement with You

The following terms and conditions form the basis of your contract with Alfendo Ltd trading as Belleair Holidays of 2210 The Crescent Birmingham Business Park, B37 7YE. Belleair Holidays is a trading name for Alfendo Ltd. These Booking Terms and Conditions, together with our privacy policy and, where your holiday is booked via our website, our website terms and conditions of use, together with any other written information we brought to your attention before we confirmed your booking, form the basis of your contract with Alfendo Limited trading as Belleair Holidays Company No00460932. (“we” or “us”). Please read them carefully as they set out our respective rights and obligations. In these Booking Conditions references to "you" and "your" include the first named person on the booking and all persons on whose behalf a booking is made or any other person to whom a booking is added or transferred.

By making a booking, the first named person on the booking agrees on behalf of all persons detailed on the booking that:

Most of the air holidays and flights on this website are ATOL Protected, since we hold an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence granted by the Civil Aviation Authority.  Our ATOL number is ATOL 4110. 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.

If your ATOL Certificate identifies multiple suppliers, you will have contracts with each of them and be subject to their terms and conditions. Please ask us for us for copies of these if you do not have them.

All money accepted from you by a travel agent acting as our agent is held by that agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust at all times, but subject to the agent's obligation to pay it to us for so long as we do not fail. If we do fail, any money held at that time by the agent, or subsequently accepted from you by the agent, is and continues to be held by that agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust without any obligation to pay that money to us

If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then you will not be protected by the CAA, but your financial protection will be provided by our membership of ABTA, membership number W3438

You agree to accept that in the event of our insolvency ABTA may arrange for the services you have bought to continue, or for a suitable alternative to be provided at the same cost as your original booking. You also agree to accept that in circumstances where the travel service supplier provides the services you have bought, you agree to pay any outstanding sum under your contract with us to that alternative travel service provider. However, you also agree that in some cases the services will not be provided, in which case you will be entitled to make a claim under ABTA’s Scheme of Protection (or your payment card issuer where applicable) for a refund of the monies you have paid

All travel arrangements on this website are sold subject to the following booking conditions.


2. Booking

When you or your travel agent wishes to confirm a booking, you are acknowledging your understanding and acceptance of our terms and conditions on behalf of everyone in your group.

If your booking includes a cruise, you must read the terms and conditions of the relevant cruise line as these will also form part of your contract. If you have not seen these, please ask for a copy before proceeding to book. These terms are important as many cruise lines restrict their liability or impose terms which may vary from the usual terms expected. In particular, currently most cruise lines will require you to complete a pre boarding health questionnaire and will require full details of your Covid 19 vaccinations. If you cannot comply with this requirement, you may be denied boarding and, in these circumstances, this will be treated as a cancellation by you and cancellation charges will apply. Cruise lines will always deny boarding to those exhibiting symptoms, whether at the departure point or at any port during the cruise.  If necessary to ensure the health of other passengers, a Master or senior crew member may refuse reboarding and your holiday will be curtailed. You will then be subject to the health formalities effective at that time at that destination and may be subject to quarantine or removal. These will be at your own expense, so please ensure you have a fully comprehensive insurance policy to cover these costs. 

All cruise lines currently require proof that you have been fully vaccinated against COVID 19 and you should not proceed to book if this is not the case.

All cruise lines have developed health and safety procedures on board, and these can change without notice. These could include the requirement to wear a face mask at any time whilst on board or ashore on excursions, restrictions on the use of facilities on board but any changes to procedures will not be considered to be a major change and allow you to cancel without paying cancellation charges

Finally, it is important to note that ships itineraries are designed years in advance and as a result, ports of call may be changed with little or no notice. The decision to change a route is entirely in the hands of the ships master and we have no control whatsoever but will advise you of any changes if we are notified of them prior to your departure. Again, most changes are made for health or safety reasons, for bad weather forecasts for example, and will not give you a right to cancel without cancellation charges applying

The terms and conditions vary depending on whether you purchase a ‘package holiday’ or ‘Other Travel Arrangements’ which is anything else, for example flights or accommodation booked separately in which case we always act as an agent for the supplier, and your contract will be with that company, not Belleair Holidays. You will be advised before you request a booking whether it consists of a package or not.

Please note that where a supplier’s services form part of your booking, the supplier’s standard terms and conditions will also apply. These are important in the case of ‘Other Travel Arrangements’ where Belleair Holidays acts only as an agent between you and our suppliers. All travel arrangements that include flights are subject to the airline’s conditions of carriage. Copies of these conditions may be requested in writing.


3. Deposits & Payment

(a) When making a booking involving flights, we will require a minimum deposit of £75 per person.  If booking charter or low-cost flights, full payment is required at time of booking. However other airlines may require immediate full payment and you will be advised at the time of booking.  In addition, a deposit of £25 per person will be required in respect of any hotel arrangements, transfers, car hire and attraction tickets and full payment is required at time of booking for car parking.  We will then send you a confirmation invoice, after which a contract exists, subject to English law unless otherwise agreed. 

We will require payment of the remaining balance as shown on your confirmation invoice, not less than eight weeks before your departure from the UK.  If you book within eight weeks of departure from the UK, we will require full payment at the time of booking. All monies paid to your travel agent are held by the agent on our behalf at all times.  Deposits are non-refundable and should you fail to pay the money when it is due, we reserve the right to cancel your booking and retain the deposit that has been paid.  Travel documents will not be released until we have received full payment.

For cruise bookings, the deposit required, and the final balance due date may vary, we will advise you at the time of booking of the terms relating to your specific booking

(b) Airline Ticket Deadlines

For ‘other travel arrangements,’ where we act as agent between you and our suppliers, airlines may on occasion request that payment be brought forward in which case we will notify you of this change of payment date. This usually occurs when an airline withdraws a fare and requests that all tickets at the old fare are issued by a particular date. Regrettably your booking cannot be held after this ticket deadline date and will have to be cancelled if payment is not made.


4. Cancellation by You

(a)  If you need to cancel a confirmed booking you must contact your travel agent.  To cover the cost of administration and cancellation charges imposed by suppliers and for the possibility that we will not be able to resell the holiday we have to make a cancellation charge. If you have purchased insurance, you may be able to claim for the charges we impose.  

If you or any member of your party decides to cancel your confirmed booking you must notify us in writing. Your notice of cancellation will only take effect when it is received in writing by us at our offices and will be effective from the date on which we receive it. We recommend that you use recorded delivery. Since we incur costs in cancelling your arrangements, you will have to pay the applicable cancellation charges up to the maximum shown below. 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 departure within which notice of Cancellation by you is received –

Amount of cancellation charge

Please note that amendment charges are not refundable in any circumstances.

Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended after they have been confirmed and any alteration or cancellation could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements in addition to the charge above.

We will deduct the cancellation charge(s) from any monies you have already paid to us.

Note: These cancellation charges apply to all bookings, except when tickets have been issued and they are non-refundable by the airline or in circumstances where a booking includes items or services where our supplier’s cancellation charges exceed those shown above. In these circumstances any additional cancellation charges will be advised at the time of booking.
 

5.AlterationByYou

If you wish to make a change, such as a change to the date of travel or accommodation, to a confirmed booking please contact your travel agent. We will do our best to assist but it may not always be possible. In some cases, airlines require tickets to be issued on booking and where tickets have been issued changes may be treated as a cancellation. To complete a change to any part of your booked arrangements after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you must inform us in writing please email admin@belleairholidays.co.uk as soon as possible.

This should be done by the first named person on the booking. Where we can meet a request, all changes will be subject to payment of an administration fee, as listed below, per person per change as well as any applicable rate changes or extra costs incurred as well as any costs incurred by ourselves and any costs or charges incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers.

You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure 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. A cancellation fee may be payable. If you are prevented from travelling it may be possible to transfer your booking to another suitable person provided that written notice is given. An administration fee will be charged, details available upon request.

Transfer of Booking: If any member of your party is prevented from travelling, that person(s) may transfer their place to someone else (introduced by you and satisfying all the conditions applicable to the arrangements) providing we are notified not less than 28 days before departure and you pay an amendment fee, as listed below, per person transferring, meet all costs and charges incurred by us and/or incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers and the transferee agrees to these booking conditions and all other terms of the contract between us. If you are unable to find a replacement, cancellation charges as set out will apply in order to cover our estimated costs. Otherwise, no refunds will be given for passengers not travelling or for unused services.

Note: Certain arrangements may not be amended or transferred after they have been confirmed and any alteration could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements.

The following amendment fees will apply in respect of any changes requested:

a, If you make any alteration to your holiday after we have confirmed your booking, other than increasing the numbers in your party or adding a service to your booking, an amendment fee of £50 per person will be charged, in addition to any applicable accommodation or airline fees.

b, For changes after you have booked your holiday, other than a name change, you may be liable to pay cancellation charges. Please note: in the case of cruise lines, any changes requested once booked may incur cancellation charges where such changes cannot be made with payment of a fee.

c, Name changes, if permitted by the relevant suppliers, may be accepted up to 3 weeks before your departure date and a charge of £50 per name change will be levied, in addition to any applicable accommodation or airline fees.

d, Cancellation charges may be applicable where name changes are made within 3 weeks of the departure date, plus any applicable airline charges. This includes changing from your maiden name to your married name or where a ticket is non-refundable.

e, If the holiday price depends on the number of persons booked into an accommodation and you wish to change that number of persons, the price will be calculated on the basis of the new party size. Any increase in price per person as a result of part cancellation is not a cancellation charge. It is a price adjustment resulting from the amendment to the number of persons travelling.

Important note: all amendments must be confirmed in writing by email or post by the lead name on the booking or by your travel agent. If email is used as the appropriate method of cancellation, you/the travel agent are advised to keep a copy of the email confirmation as this may be required for proof in the unlikely event of any discrepancies.

Hotels/Cruise/Other

£25 Belleair Admin Change fee per booking plus any additional Hotel/Supplier fees.

Packages

There will be an administration fee of £50 and any further costs we incur in making the alteration as noted above, many airline fares are non-refundable or changeable and may incur 100% cancellation fee for that part of the arrangements. Our costs are likely to increase the closer to the departure date the changes are made, and you should contact your travel agent as soon as possible.

You can transfer a package booking to another person, who satisfies all the requirements that apply to this booking by giving us reasonable notice before departure. Both you and the new traveller are responsible for paying all the costs we incur in making the transfer. If the services booked are dependent on a minimum number of people using the service, we will have to recalculate the total cost if the number travelling has been reduced, based on the new number of passengers travelling.  The cost may therefore increase but as this is not a cancellation charge, it may not be covered by your insurance.

No refunds will be given for unused services unless an amendment or cancellation has been made in which case the charges shown above will apply.


6. Cancellation by Us

We aim to provide the travel arrangements you have booked without any changes; however, it is possible that cancellations may be necessary due to changes made beyond our control by airlines, hotels or other suppliers. For some package holidays to operate a minimum number of people may be required. If sufficient bookings are not received, we reserve the right to cancel the holiday, but will do so at least eight weeks before departure. If there are unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances beyond our control, or if you fail to pay the final balance, we may have to cancel your booking at a later date.

In the unlikely event that your travel arrangements must be cancelled we will advise you as soon as is reasonably possible, and you will be offered an alternative if we can or a full refund.

If we have to cancel your booking, except as a result of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances, we may offer you compensation where deemed appropriate.

As we plan your holiday arrangements many months in advance we may occasionally have to make changes or cancel your booking and we reserve the right to do so at any time.

Changes: If we make a minor change to your holiday, we will make reasonable efforts to inform you or your travel agent as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure but we will have no liability to you. Examples of minor changes include alteration of your outward/return flights by less than 12 hours, changes to aircraft type, change of accommodation to another of the same or higher standard, changes of carriers. Please note that carriers such as airlines used in our advertising material may be subject to change.

Occasionally we may have to make a major change to your confirmed arrangements. Examples of “major changes” include the following, when made before departure:

* A change of accommodation area for the whole or a significant part of your time away.

* A change of accommodation to that of a lower standard or classification for the whole or a significant part of your time away.

* A change of outward departure time or overall length of your arrangements of twelve or more hours.

* A significant change to your itinerary, missing out one or more destinations entirely.

Cancellation: We will not cancel your travel arrangements less than 70 days before your departure date, except for reasons of force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance. We may cancel your holiday before this date if, e.g., the minimum number of clients required for a particular travel arrangement is not reached.

If we have to make a major change or cancel, we will tell you as soon as possible and if there is time to do so before departure, we will offer you the choice of:

i, (for major changes) accepting the changed arrangements;

ii, having a refund of all monies paid; or

iii, accepting an offer of alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us, if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value).

You must notify us of your choice within 7 days of our offer. If you fail to do so we will assume that you have chosen to accept the change or alternative booking arrangements.

If the cancellation is due to the actions of a cruise company involved in your booking, we will follow the cruise company’s policy in respect of cancellations

Compensation

If we cancel or make a major change less than 70 days before departure, we will pay compensation as detailed below. The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so.

Period before departure within which notice of cancellation or major change is notified to you - Compensation payable per person booking

71 days or more - Nil

70 - 42 days prior to departure - £10

41 - 28 days prior to departure - £20

27 - 14 days prior to departure - £30

Less than 14 days prior to departure - £40

* where we make a minor change; IMPORTANT NOTE: We will not pay you compensation in the following circumstances:

* where we make a major change or cancel your arrangements more than 70 days before departure;

* Where we have to cancel your arrangements as a result of your failure to make full payment on time;

* where the change or cancellation by us arises out of alterations to the confirmed booking requested by you;

* where we are forced to cancel or change your arrangements due to Force Majeure.

Please note: where accommodation with a higher price than the original accommodation is offered by us and accepted by you, the difference in price will be deducted from any compensation payable. In no case will we pay compensation if accommodation is offered by us and accepted by you with a higher price than that originally booked in the same location where no additional payment is made by you.

If we become unable to provide a significant proportion of the services that you have booked with us after you have departed, we will make alternative arrangements for you at no extra charge and, if appropriate in all the circumstances, will pay you reasonable compensation.

 

Our Responsibilities in Respect of Package Holidays

1.We will accept responsibility for the arrangements we agree to provide or arrange for you as an “organizer” under the Linked travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 as set out below. Subject to these booking conditions, if we or our suppliers negligently perform or arrange the services which we are obliged to provide for you under our contract with you, as set out on your confirmation invoice, we will pay you reasonable compensation. The level of such compensation will be calculated taking into consideration all relevant factors such as but not limited to: following the complaints procedure as described in these conditions and the extent to which ours or our employees’ or suppliers’ negligence affected the overall enjoyment of your holiday. Please note that it is your responsibility to show that we or our supplier(s) have been negligent if you wish to make a claim against us.

2.We will not be responsible or pay you compensation for any injury, illness, death, loss, damage, expense, cost or other claim of any description if it results from:

(a) the act(s) and/or omission(s) of the person(s) affected; or

(b) the act(s) and/or omission(s) of a third party unconnected with the provision of the services contracted for and which were unforeseeable or unavoidable; or

(c) unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond ours or our supplier(s) control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or

(d) An event which either ourselves or suppliers could not, even with all due care, have foreseen or forestalled.

(3) We limit the amount of compensation we may have to pay you if we are found liable under this clause:

1.loss of and/or damage to any luggage or personal possessions and money, The maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of these claims is an amount equivalent to the excess on your insurance policy which applies to this type of loss per person in total because you are assumed to have adequate insurance in place to cover any losses of this kind.

2.Claims not falling under (a) above and which don’t involve injury, illness or death The maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of these claims is twice the price paid by or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total. This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong and you or your party has not received any benefit at all from your booking.

3.Claims in respect of international travel by air, sea and rail, or any stay in a hotel

1.The extent of our liability will in all cases be limited as if we were carriers under the appropriate Conventions, which include The Warsaw/ Montreal Convention (international travel by air); The Athens Convention (with respect to sea travel); The Berne/ Cotif Convention (with respect to rail travel) and The Paris Convention (with respect to hotel arrangements). You can ask for copies of these Conventions from our offices. Please contact us. In addition, you agree that the operating carrier or transport company's own 'Conditions of Carriage' will apply to you on that journey. When arranging transportation for you, we rely on the terms and conditions contained within these international conventions and those 'Conditions of Carriage'. You acknowledge that all of the terms and conditions contained in those 'Conditions of Carriage' form part of your contract with us, as well as with the transport company and that those 'Conditions of Carriage' shall be deemed to be included by reference into this contract.

ii) In any circumstances in which a carrier is liable to you by virtue of the Denied Boarding Regulation 2004, any liability we may have to you under our contract with you, arising out of the same facts, is limited to the remedies provided under the Regulation as if (for this purpose only ) we were a carrier.

iii) When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question.

4.It is a condition of our acceptance of liability under this clause that you notify any claim to ourselves and our supplier(s) strictly in accordance with the complaints procedure set out in these conditions.

5.Where any payment is made, the person(s) receiving it (and their parent or guardian if under 18 years) must also assign to ourselves or our insurers any rights they may have to pursue any third party and must provide ourselves and our insurers with all assistance we may reasonably require.

f. Please note, we cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss or expense or other sum(s) of any description: which on the basis of the information given to us by you concerning your booking prior to our accepting it, we could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur if we breached our contract with you; or (b) relate to any business.

7.We will not accept responsibility for services or facilities which do not form part of our agreement or where they are not advertised in our brochure. For example, any excursion you book whilst away, or any service or facility which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide for you.

 

 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.

Where you experience a delay, which is not owing to any failure by us, our employees or sub-contractors, this prompt assistance is likely to extend to providing help in locating refreshments, accommodation and communications but not paying for them. Any airline or other transport supplier may however pay for or provide refreshments and/or appropriate accommodation and you should make a claim directly to them. Subject to the other terms of these conditions, we will not be liable for any costs, fees or charges you incur in the above circumstances, if you fail to obtain our prior authorisation before making your own travel arrangements.

SECTION C – SINGLE ELEMENT BOOKINGS

This section applies to all single element bookings (i.e. accommodation only bookings). Please read this section in conjunction with Section A of these Booking Conditions.

Note:  Compensation will not be payable when the cancellation is due to events beyond our control, such as war, threat of war, riots or disturbances, terrorist activities, industrial disputes, fire, nuclear or natural disasters, health risks including pandemics, problems with transport, severe weather conditions or any other similar events.

 

7. Alterations

Package Holidays

We may have to make change to your package holiday, and we must reserve the right to do so. We will let you or your travel agent know of any major changes at the time of booking or as soon as possible if you have already booked. If there is a major change to accommodation of a lower standard or to a different resort or a change of more than 12 hours in the departure time of a flight, we will tell you as soon as possible and allow you the choice of accepting the change, accepting an alternative holiday, with a refund of the difference in value if it is less expensive or you may cancel the holiday and receive a full refund. In addition, we will pay reasonable compensation to reflect the change being made unless the changes are as a result of events outside our control as set out above. Changes to aircraft type, alterations in flights times of less than 12 hours or a change to accommodation of the same or a higher standard are not considered to be major changes

Other travel arrangements

In this case, as we only act as a booking agent, particularly in the case of air tickets, we may not be notified of a major change before you travel. However, where we are notified, we will advise you as soon as is reasonably possible. If the changes are not acceptable to you, we will offer you an alternative if available, or a full refund, if permitted by airline or other supplier. If your chosen alternative costs more, you must pay the difference.
 

8. Lost tickets or vouchers

If your travel documents have not been received by you, or you have mislaid your travel documents, you must inform us at least 10 days prior to departure. Failure to do so may result in additional charges as special arrangements will have to be made.


9. Changes in Price

The prices shown are correct at the time of publication. You or your travel agent will be notified of any changes to these prices at the time of booking.
In the case of ‘package holidays’ we reserve the right to increase the price after booking if any increase in price occurs in respect of:
(i) Air fares or other transport costs,
(ii) Taxes or duties payable, including new taxes introduced by any government
(iii) Adverse changes to currency exchange rates
If the cost of your holiday increases by more than 8% you may decide to cancel the holiday and have a full refund or chose another one if we are able to offer one,  except for the insurance premiums or amendment fees paid after booking.  If you want to cancel you must tell us within 14 days of being advised of the increase.  In return we will not change the cost of your holiday within eight weeks of departure. Equally, where our costs fall after the package has been bought, we will pass onto you any benefit and reduced costs to ourselves as a result of changes to the items listed above.

We will not pass on any increase below 2% of your holiday price, but equally we will not refund any decrease of less than 2% of your holiday price

In the case of ‘other travel arrangements’ you can choose whether to pay in full within 14 days of booking in which case we can guarantee the price quoted. Alternatively, you may pay eight weeks before departure but, in this case, the price will be recalculated according to the fares and currency rates then applicable. No guarantee of price can be given, and you do not have the right to cancel no matter what happens to the price, except by paying the cancellation charges shown above


10. Our Liability

For package holidays only, we are responsible for ensuring that your package holiday is of a reasonable standard and as described by us to you. If any part fails to reach this standard and affects the enjoyment of your holiday, we will offer reasonable compensation, so long as it is not due to events outside our control such as action by you or a member of your party, caused a a third party unconnected with the package or unforeseeable and extraordinary circumstances which could not be avoided even if all reasonable measures had been taken

In addition, we accept responsibility for any injury, illness or death arising from the activities booked through us by the fault of any of ourselves, our suppliers or their employees acting in the course of their employment. We will pay compensation equivalent to that which would be awarded in an English court but will not offer compensation if the injury, illness or death is caused by your own fault, the fault of someone unconnected with the package or by an event which could not have been expected or avoided even with all due care. You must report the event that occurs to us and the supplier whilst you are on holiday and write to us as soon as you return.

We reserve the right to limit our liability in accordance with International Conventions such as the Warsaw and Montreal Conventions in relation to air travel and the Athens Convention in relation to international sea travel, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail and Paris Convention in respect of the provision of accommodation. We shall have the full benefit of any limitation of compensation which is contained in these conventions and   the contractual terms of the companies that provide the services that make up your package holiday and those terms are incorporated into this booking

You can ask for copies of the relevant international conventions and terms of the travel providers which apply to your booking.

In the case of ‘other travel arrangements’ Belleair Holidays accepts responsibility for any loss, personal injury or death caused by our own proven negligence.  However, in respect of the travel arrangements themselves and any claims that may arise from them, we are unable to accept responsibility and any claims must be addressed to the supplier with whom you are in contract or to your own insurance company.


11. Complaints Procedure

If you have a problem during the course of your holiday, you must inform the supplier of the service, plus a representative whose details we have provided, or telephone our offices immediately, failure to do so may reduce or extinguish any possible claim.  We will endeavour to put things right as soon as possible for our own packages and offer assistance where the issue is with your supplier in the case of ‘other travel arrangements’.  We will acknowledge all complaints on their receipt and deal with them promptly and efficiently. Any disputes which cannot be amicably settled may (if you so wish), be referred to ABTA’s scheme of dispute resolution which is approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute. Full details can be found at www.abta.com


12. Data Protection

By making a reservation with us you agree to the use and disclosure of the information you provide for the following purposes: to enable us to process your booking (when it may be transferred abroad), if you purchase insurance we may process your information and pass it to insurers, for market research and analysis, to avoid fraud and to enable us to contact you by letter, telephone or e-mail with details of our products or those of our suppliers. 

You may find further information regarding our privacy policies here https://www.belleair.co.uk/pages/privacy-policy


13. Important Information
