Article 2 – Applicability of conditions

2.1 Package travel

These terms and conditions apply to all Package Holidays offered by the Organizer or agreed with the Organizer and form an inseparable part thereof.

2.2 Linked travel arrangements

These Conditions can also be declared applicable to Travel Services that are part of a linked travel arrangement. The terms and conditions of the supplier of that Travel Service apply to the Travel Services that have not been agreed with the Organizer.

2.3 Travel services

These terms and conditions can also be declared applicable to stand-alone Travel Services that do not constitute a package tour or linked travel arrangement. Title 7a of Book 7 of the Dutch Civil Code, which contains rules about package travel agreements and linked travel arrangements, does not apply in that case. These Travel Services are not protected in the event of the Organizer’s insolvency, unless the offer explicitly states which party provides cover in the event of the Organizer’s insolvency.

2.4 Deviating and additional conditions

Deviating and additional conditions must be agreed in writing. Deviating provisions in the individual agreement take precedence over these Conditions.

 

Article 3 – Establishment of the Agreement 

3.1 Content of the offer

The offered Trip comprises the services and facilities that are explicitly described in the offers and publications of the Organizer. The content of the offer is exclusively determined on the basis of the information provided by or on behalf of the Organizer. Information in publications of Travel Service Providers is not part of the offer, regardless of whether a link to it is included in the Organizer’s offer. The stated travel time is indicated in whole days, whereby the days of departure and arrival are counted as whole days.

3.2 Non-binding offer

All quotations and offers by the Organizer are without obligation and can, after acceptance, be revoked by the Organizer in all cases until 5 p.m. on the next Business Day without stating reasons. This also applies if the Traveler has received an automatic confirmation of receipt of the booking.

3.3 Establishment of the agreement

The Agreement is established through the acceptance by the Traveler of the Organizer’s offer.

3.4 Apparent Errors

Apparent errors in the offer do not bind the Organizer. This concerns the offer of a price, the content of the service offered or other information of which the Traveler, in view of all circumstances, could not reasonably assume that the Organizer intended to explain this. If there is reason to doubt the correctness of the price or information, the Traveler must make inquiries.

3.5 Special wishes

If the Traveler makes certain preferences known before or when entering into the Agreement, rights can only be derived from this if these preferences have been accepted as a special wish by means of a written commitment from the Organizer to the Traveler that the preference will be granted. The mere mention as preference on travel documents and the booking confirmation is insufficient for this.

3.6 Special Requirements

If the Traveler notifies the Organizer as a ‘requirement’ at the latest when entering into the Agreement, requirements in connection with the medical condition or because of other compelling interests, this applies as a suspensive condition for the conclusion of the Agreement. The Organizer must reject or confirm the ‘requirement’ within a reasonable period of time and ensure that it is met. A period of 7 days is in any case seen as reasonable. If the Organizer rejects the requirement, no Agreement will be concluded. If the Organizer confirms the ‘requirement’, the Agreement will be concluded by sending confirmation. If additional costs are associated with the requirements and these are known, the Organizer will make a new offer to the Traveler.

3.7 Confirmation of receipt of the booking

If acceptance by the Traveler takes place electronically, the Organizer will confirm receipt of the acceptance sent by the Traveler.

3.8 Confirmation of the booking

Immediately after booking the trip, the Organizer will send a booking confirmation, whether or not together with a (down payment) invoice.

3.9 Cancellation by traveler

A booking of the Trip is final. The Traveler has no right to cancel the Agreement.

3.10 Minors

The Traveler who books the trip must be of legal age. If a minor (under 18 years) travels without the persons having custody of the minor, these persons must send a signed declaration of consent within 7 days of the booking. In this case, by way of derogation from paragraph 3 [Formation of the agreement] of this article, the Agreement will only be definitively established after receipt of this statement by the Organizer.

3.11 Books for other Travelers & communication

The Traveler who enters into an Agreement on behalf of or for the benefit of one or more other Travelers, is jointly and severally liable for all obligations arising from it. The other Travelers are each responsible for their own part. The confirmation, the invoice, the travel documents and all other communication will only be sent to the Traveler who makes the booking. The Traveler who books the Trip on behalf of or for the benefit of others is obliged – with the consent of that person – to disclose relevant personal circumstances of those other Travelers that may affect the performance of the Agreement when registering. The Traveler who books the Trip on behalf of or for the benefit of others is obliged to provide those other Travelers with these Conditions and other relevant communications.

 

Article 4 – Information by the Organizer

4.1 Travel sum

Prices stated are per person, unless explicitly stated otherwise. The offered travel sum includes all known unavoidable additional costs, unless the costs cannot be included in the travel sum or are not yet known. In that case, these costs or the nature of the costs are clearly stated and close to the travel sum. If the travel sum is age-dependent, the age on the first day of the Trip is decisive.

4.2 Information by the Organizer after booking

When concluding the Agreement or immediately thereafter, the Organizer will provide the Traveler with the Agreement, including the accepted special wishes of the Traveler and information about the required travel documents (passports, visas, etc.) and any formalities tailored to the Dutch nationality, health area and other legally required information.

4.4 Travel documents

During the entire Trip, the Traveler must have the travel documents necessary for the Trip, such as a passport, visa, vaccination certificates, etc. In view of the great importance of this, the Traveler must provide the general information provided by the Organizer with the relevant check authorities and institutions for applicability, completeness and topicality. Before booking the trip, the Traveler must verify whether there is sufficient time to obtain the necessary travel documents in connection with the possibly long processing time of an application for travel documents and in particular any required visa. If the Traveler is unable to complete the Trip or cannot complete the Trip due to the lack of valid, complete and correct travel documents, the resulting costs will be entirely at the expense of the Traveler.

4.5 Travel documentation

The travel documents (transport tickets, vouchers, etc.) are sent to the Traveler on time and no later than 7 days before departure, unless the invoice has not yet been paid in full. If the Traveler has not received the travel documents 5 days before departure, he must immediately inform the Organizer. Final departure times and arrival times are stated in the travel documents.

4.6 Information about insurance

Before the conclusion of the Agreement, the Organizer will provide the Traveler with information about the possibility of taking out cancellation insurance and travel insurance. The Organizer may require such insurance, provided the Traveler has been notified of this in Writing before the Agreement is concluded.

 

Article 5 – Information by the Traveler

5.1 Relevant information from the Traveler(s)

Before or at the conclusion of the Agreement, the Traveler who makes the booking provides all information relevant to the Trip about himself and the other Travelers registered by him or her. In particular, this concerns information about the Travelers or the composition of the group if this may affect the health or safety of the Traveler or others during the Trip. If the information provided is incorrect or incomplete, this may result in the Traveler being excluded from participation by the Organizer or the Travel Service Providers. In that case, the Traveler owes the cancellation costs in accordance with Article 9 paragraph 2 [cancellation costs]. Other costs arising from this will also be borne by the Traveler.

5.2 Reduced mobility, pregnant women, unaccompanied minors and illness

Travelers with reduced mobility and their companions, pregnant women, unaccompanied minors and Travelers with an illness that may affect the Trip must do so when entering into the Agreement or at least as soon as possible after the Traveler is aware of this to the Organizer in connection with any consequences for the Trip and in particular air transport. These Travelers must verify with the carrier whether a medical certificate is required to travel.

 

Article 6 – Payment

6.1 Down payment

After the conclusion of the Agreement, 20% of the travel sum must be paid within 7 days after receipt of the down payment invoice, with a minimum of € 250 per Traveler.

6.5 Further consequences of non-payment

If the Traveler is in default, the Organizer can suspend the sending of the travel documents without further notice until full payment has been received. If payment is not made even after a reminder or if payment has not been made before the start of the trip, the Organizer has the right to exclude the Traveler from participation. The obligation to pay remains. Instead of excluding the Traveler from participation, the Organizer can cancel the Agreement and charge the cancellation costs owed to the Traveler. The provisions of this paragraph are without prejudice to other rights of the Organizer.

 

Article 7 – Substitution

7.1 Conditions and notification

A Traveler can transfer the Trip to another person who meets all the conditions attached to the Trip. The Traveler requests the Organizer to substitute the person no later than 7 days before the start of the Trip, at least with due observance of a reasonable period within which the necessary actions can be performed.

Transfer of the entire trip is generally only possible if – at the expense of the Traveler – a new flight ticket is booked.

7.2 Joint and several liability and additional costs

The Traveler who has booked the Trip may request the Organizer in Writing to change the Agreement. The Organizer is not obliged to do this.

If the new travel sum is lower than the original travel sum, the difference will be deducted from the change costs owed.

8.2 Adjustment of departure date or number of travelers

A request to change the departure date does not constitute a change, but a cancellation. Reduction in the number of paying passengers is not a change, but a partial cancellation. The cancellation scheme of article 9 paragraph 2 [cancellation costs] applies to this.
