7. PRICES, SURCHARGES AND TAXES
Tours are priced and advertised inclusive of applicable taxes. The Tour Operator will not increase the price of your Tour after you have paid in full. Prior to this time, the Tour Operator reserves the right to amend the price of unsold holidays at any time and correct errors in the prices of confirmed holidays. The Tour Operator also reserves the right to increase the price of confirmed holidays solely to allow for increases which are a direct consequence of changes in:
(i) The price of the carriage of passengers resulting from the cost of fuel or other power sources;
(ii) The level of taxes or fees applicable to the holiday imposed by third parties not directly involved in the performance of the holiday, including tourist taxes, landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports; and
(iii) The exchange rates relevant to the package.
Such variations could include but are not limited to airline cost changes which are part of the Tour Operator’s contracts with airlines (and their agents), cruise ship operators and any other transport providers.
You will be charged for the amount of any increase in accordance with this clause. However, if this means that you have to pay an increase of more than 8% of the price of your confirmed holiday (excluding any insurance premiums, amendment charges and/or additional services or travel arrangements), you will have the option of accepting a change to another holiday if the Tour Operator is able to offer one (if this is of equivalent or higher quality you will not have to pay more but if it is of lower quality you will be refunded the difference in price), or canceling and receiving a full refund of all monies paid to the Tour Operator, except for any insurance premiums and any amendment charges and/or additional services or travel arrangements. Should you decide to cancel for this reason, you must exercise your right to do so within 7 days from the issue date printed on your final invoice.
Should the price of your holiday go down solely due to the changes mentioned above then any refund due will be paid to you less an administrative fee of EUR€50, based on the currency of your booking? However 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.

Standards of hygiene, accommodation, and transport in certain countries where Tours take place are often lower than the standards you may reasonably expect in your home country or region. You agree that the Tour Operator is not responsible for providing information or guidance with respect to local customs, weather conditions, specific safety concerns, physical challenges, or laws in effect in any locations where a Tour, product or service is operated. You acknowledge you have considered the potential risks, dangers, and challenges and your own personal capabilities and needs, and you expressly assume the risks associated with travel under such conditions.
You must at all times strictly comply with all applicable laws and regulations of all countries and regions. Should you fail to comply with the above or commit any illegal act when on Tour or, if in the opinion of the Tour Operator (acting reasonably), your behavior is causing or is likely to cause danger, distress or material annoyance to others, the Tour Operator may terminate your travel arrangements on any product or service immediately at your expense and without any liability on the Tour Operator’s part. You will not be entitled to any refund for unused or missed services or costs incurred as a result of termination of your travel arrangements, including, without limitation, return travel, accommodations, meals, and incidentals.

18. OUR RESPONSIBILITIES
1.

Subject to these Booking Conditions, if the Tour Operator or its suppliers negligently perform or arrange those services and the Tour Operator doesn’t remedy or resolve your complaint within a reasonable period of time, the Tour Operator 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 the Tour Operator or Tour Operator’s employees’ or suppliers’ negligence affected the overall enjoyment of your holiday. Please note that it is your responsibility to show that the Tour Operator or its supplier(s) have been negligent if you wish to make a claim against the Tour Operator.
2. The Tour Operator will not be responsible or pay you compensation for any injury, illness, death, loss, damage, expense, cost or another claim of any description if it results from:
• a) the acts and/or omissions of the person affected; or
• b) the acts and/or omissions of a third party unconnected with the provision of the services contracted for and which were unavoidable and extraordinary; or
• c) Force Majeure
3. The Tour Operator limits the amount of compensation it may have to pay you if it is found liable under this clause as follows:
• loss of and/or damage to any luggage or personal possessions and money: the maximum amount the Tour Operator 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 required to have adequate insurance in place to cover any losses of this kind.
• Claims not falling under (a) above and which don’t involve injury, illness or death: the maximum amount the Tour Operator will have to pay you in respect of these claims is up to three times 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.
• Claims in respect of international travel by air, sea and rail, or any stay in a hotel:
1. i) The extent of the Tour Operator’s liability will in all cases be limited as if it’s a carrier 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 the Tour Operator. 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, the Tour Operator relies 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 the Tour Operator, as well as with the transport company and that those 'Conditions of Carriage' shall be deemed to be included by reference into this contract.
2. ii) In any circumstances in which a carrier is liable to you by virtue of the Denied Boarding Regulation 2004, any liability the Tour Operator may have to you under the Tour Operator’s contract with you, arising out of the same facts, is limited to the remedies provided under the Regulation as if (for this purpose only) the Tour Operator were a carrier.
3. iii) When making any payment, the Tour Operator is 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 the Tour Operator’s acceptance of liability under this clause that you notify any claim to the Tour Operator and our supplier(s) strictly in accordance with the complaints procedure set out in these Terms.
5. Where any payment is made, the person(s) receiving it (and their parent or guardian if under 18 years) must also assign to the Tour Operator or its insurers any rights they may have to pursue any third party and must provide the Tour Operator and its insurers with all assistance they may reasonably require.
6. Please note, the Tour Operator cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss or expense or another sum (s) of any description:

Furthermore, the Tour Operator reserves the right to charge you a fee for its assistance in the event that the difficulty is caused intentionally by you or a member of your party, or otherwise through your or your party’s negligence.
