BOOKING DETAILS

It is your responsibility that you check all names, dates and timings are correct on receipt of all documents and advise Cassidy Golf of any errors immediately. Please ensure that the names given are the same as per the relevant passport. Any changes to these details will incur amendment fees charged by the Travel Provider. Where there is more than one traveller in a booking, the person who makes the booking and signs the booking conditions, accepts these conditions on behalf of all members of the party and is responsible for all payment due from the party. It is your responsibility to ensure that any information given to you by us or any of our employees or Travel Providers is passed onto all members of the party.

SPECIAL REQUESTS

Although we will endeavor to pass on any reasonable request to your Travel Provider, we are unable to guarantee that the request will be met.

PRICE VARIATION

All prices quoted are stated in Euros and are based on tariffs and exchange rates current and appropriate at the time of publication. If any of these vary the cost of the travel arrangements may increase accordingly. Any such increase must be paid by you to Cassidy Golf.

RESERVATIONS

(a) Certain airlines do not maintain ‘real time’ seat availability in the airline reservations system to which we connect. Whilst every effort is made to reflect the true situation, instances may occur when airlines cancel reservations. Cassidy Golf will advise you if this is the case and we will do all we can to re-instate your booking, however, this may be at an increased cost to you.



(b) Some airlines may have code share agreements with each other, which may result in a different partner airline flying the route with a different aircraft seat configuration.



(c) It is your responsibility to present yourself at the port of departure in sufficient time prior to the designated departure time to complete embarkation requirements and to ensure you are in possession of all relevant travel documentation ie. Passports, Visas

By agreeing to these terms and conditions you agree to indemnify Cassidy Golf against any loss or injury suffered or incurred by any other person as a consequence of your failure to act in accordance with any such direction or instruction.

INSURANCE YOUR ATTENTION IS DRAWN TO THE EXCLUSION CLAUSES AND EXCESSES IN THE INSURANCE POLICY.

We cannot recommend strongly enough the importance of taking out adequate

travel insurance. Many Travel Providers require you to take out travel insurance

as a condition of booking with them as detailed in their booking conditions. In

any event, we strongly advise that you take out a policy of insurance in order

to cover you and your party against the cost of cancellation by you; the cost of

assistance (including repatriation) in the event of illness; loss of baggage and

money; and other expenses. If we have arranged your policy please check it

carefully to ensure that all details are correct and that all relevant information

has been provided by you (eg. pre-existing medical conditions). Failure to

disclose all relevant information will affect your insurance. In arranging any

insurance cover, Cassidy Golf is acting as your agent for the relevant insurer and

shall not be responsible for any default by the insurer under that policy.
