8. Travel Inclusive Packages
To help you, below are Glory Days Limited flight inclusive option general booking conditions. Please read them carefully.
(a)You are responsible for complying with any airline’s terms in relation to check-in times, reconfirmation of flights or other matters. In relation to flight tickets, you are required to use all flight coupons in order of sequence. If this requirement is not met the airline may void the ticket.
Are subject to change without prior notice and are only guaranteed when following confirmation of the contract.
Whilst every effort is made to reflect the true situation, instances may occur when airlines cancel sales. Glory Days Limited will advise you within 48 hours if this is the case and will do all they can to reinstate your booking. .
We will not be liable for any additional costs incurred in having to purchase new tickets at a higher fare. Payment for tickets will of course be refunded to you if the package is terminated by the airline or us.
If it is not possible to get your flight tickets to you (eg because your travel date is imminent) we may insist that you have an “e-ticket” generated. This means that you will have to pick up your ticket at your point of departure. Don’t worry; Glory Days Limited will make sure you know exactly where to pick up your tickets.
All onward, outward and return flights must be reconfirmed with the relevant airlines at least 72 hours prior to the commencement of that leg of the journey. Glory Days Limited accepts no responsibility for bookings cancelled due to non-compliance with rules set by that particular airline. Glory Days Limited also takes no responsibility for any flight rescheduling en route.
In the event of a schedule change it is not always necessary to have your tickets revalidated, however in the event that this is necessary we will inform you in due course and issue new tickets for you to use on your journey.
It is incumbent upon you to ensure that you meet the passport, visa, health requirements of the countries you wish to visit and those that you transit (even if it is for a plane change). Many countries require that your passport should be valid for a period of (a minimum) six months from the date of arrival into that country. Neither Glory Days Limited accept any responsibility if you should be denied boarding or deported due to non-fulfillment of the above.
Where your package includes overseas travel, we can only advise of the requirements for British and Irish passport holders. All requirements should be checked with the relevant Embassy of the destination country. A valid 10-year passport is necessary for all our entertainment packages. Some overseas countries have an immigration requirement that your passport is valid for a minimum period after you enter that country, typically 6 months. If your passport is in its final year of validity, we advise you confirm the requirements of the destination before making final travel plans. You should apply for a passport or to renew an expired passport at least four weeks before traveling.
The UK Passport Agency can provide further information at: www.ukpa.gov.uk
(g)Passports for children and young people:
Children not already included on a valid British passport will need to hold their own passport if they are to travel abroad. Children who were included on a passport before 5 October 1998 may continue to travel with the passport holder until: * The child reaches the age of 16; or* The passport on which the child is included expires; or * The passport on which the child is included is replaced or an amendment results in the issue of a new passport
The name on the passport must match the name on the ticket, otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid. If, after booking an entertainment package but before traveling, any member of your party changes their name, e.g. as a result of getting married, we must be notified immediately so that we can make the necessary changes to your entertainment package documentation.
You should contact your Embassy for information and advice on the visa requirements of the countries you propose to visit. Please note: Passport and visa regulations can change and you should therefore check with the relevant embassy well in advance of travel, even if you have traveled to this destination before. It is your responsibility to be in possession of a valid passport and, if appropriate, a visa. It can often take some time to obtain a visa, so you are advised to apply in plenty of time. We accept no responsibility for customers who do not possess the correct documents.
(j)Airline regulations/conditions of carriage
Please note that in all transactions Glory Days Limited acts as agents of the airlines you have chosen to book on. Please read your ticket wallet for their conditions of carriage.
When you purchase a Eurostar journey please remember that, in addition to these terms, you will be subject to the terms and conditions of Eurostar. Please contact our Customer Services who will be able to provide those terms and conditions to you.
(k)Most Eurostar tickets are generated as ‘e-tickets’. This means that you will have to pick up your ticket at your point of departure. Don’t worry; we will make sure you know exactly where to pick up your tickets.
(l)If you wish to collect your Eurostar ticket(s) from the automatic ticket machines/BLS at a French station, please note the following conditions: a French credit or debit card must be used for payment. American Express credit cards cannot be used for payment. The total value of the tickets purchased does not exceed 800 Euros (€800).
(m)Cancellation / Amendments
Please note any packages including any travel options are non-cancelable and wholly non-refundable.
If you lose your tickets, it may be possible to re-issue them for a fee. The amount payable will depend on the circumstances of the loss and how close to the travel date you discover it. However, not all tickets can be re-issued; which is another good reason for ensuring you have sufficient insurance cover. Tickets will be dispatched to you in accordance with your instructions and we accept no responsibility for their delivery. Lost tickets which cannot be re-issued are refunded at the sole discretion of the Glory Days Limited; these refunds can take up to one year to be authorized.
As Glory Days Limited acts as agent this will mean that it will have no contractual liability to you in respect of the travel inclusive product. However, it may still be liable to you if it has been negligent; it has misrepresented important information or has been in breach of any other relevant law. In respect of carriage by air, sea and rail the company limits its liability to the extent of the relevant international convention. You are subjected to the terms and conditions of the carriers concerned some of which exclude or limit liability in respect of death, injury, delay and loss or damage to baggage.
If in the reasonable opinion of a person acting in authority you are not fit to travel, he or she may refuse to let you board. Normally this happens if such person thinks you are likely to disturb or harm other passengers. In this case your contract with Glory Days Limited will end immediately and we will no longer be responsible for you.
