Use of this web site is subject to these terms & conditions and by using the web site you show your agreement the same. If you do not accept our terms & conditions, please do not use this web site. These terms and conditions, together with our “site”, “booking terms & conditions” and “privacy ⁄ security policy”, constitutes our agreement with you.
These Booking Conditions, together with any other written information we brought to your attention before your booking was confirmed, form the basis of your contract for booking services with Sunmaster Limited ('We', 'us' or 'our'). 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 transferred. A 'package' and 'lack of conformity' have the same meaning as in the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 and 'arrangements' are all the holiday, tour and other arrangements detailed on your confirmation (including any additions or amendments).
Because you can book different combinations of travel arrangements with us, we use different terms to describe them. Where you book a single individual element from us (e.g. accommodation only or flight only), you have booked a 'single element'. Where you add more than one single element to your booking (for example a flight booking and a separate hotel booking), we call that a 'multi-contract package'; that is, you are entering into multiple contracts with multiple suppliers and we are facilitating those separate contracts with each respective supplier. A 'single contract package' is a combination of travel elements that have been combined by us or another travel company and sold under a single contract and at a single price as detailed on your confirmation. We sell two different types of single contract package: a 'Sunmaster single contract package' where we have combined the travel elements; and a 'third party single contract package' where another travel company has combined the elements.
These booking conditions and any agreement to which they apply are governed in all respects by English law. We both agree that English law (and no other) will apply to any dispute, claim or other matter which arises between us out of or in connection with your contract or booking.
The key terms of our agreement are:-
When you book a third party single contract package, a single element or multi-contract package, you will enter into a binding contract with the suppliers detailed on the confirmation we issue on their behalf. When you book a Sunmaster single contract package, you will enter into a contract with us. If you then cancel your arrangements, you will be required to pay cancellation charges. Initially this will be the deposit you paid to secure your arrangements, but after you've paid the balance of the price of them, these charges will increase up to 100% of the cost of them depending on how long before travel you cancel them;
You can make changes to your confirmed arrangements in certain circumstances. We will make a reasonable charge for processing these changes;
We or the supplier(s) may make changes to and cancel your confirmed arrangements but we or they will pay you compensation in certain circumstances if that happens;
We or the suppliers are responsible for making sure your confirmed arrangements are not performed negligently but there are some limits on and exceptions to this.
When you make a booking you guarantee that you have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of all members of your party, the terms of these booking conditions and those of the applicable Supplier(s). The first named person on the booking will be the party leader (“Lead Passenger”) and will be responsible for giving us accurate information about the members of your party and their requirements (including ensuring that the names given are the same as in the relevant passport) and making all payments due to us. The Lead Passenger is the only person who can make any amendments or changes to the booking and, due to Data Protection reasons; we will not be able to discuss any aspect of the booking with anyone other than the Lead Passenger.
Please note that telephone calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.
If booking online you are responsible for ensuring booking details are correctly entered. By clicking to request holiday arrangements and entering your personal and payment details on our website, you are making us an offer to purchase the arrangements selected, if they are available. When we receive this offer, we will contact the supplier(s) of the arrangements concerned. Each supplier will require a short period of time to check to see if your chosen arrangements are still available at the price quoted. We will not take any payment from you at this stage. Should you part complete a booking request for whatever reason such as technical difficulties our helpdesk may contact you to assist you in completing your request by phone or email.
When you make an offer to us to purchase the arrangements selected if available, we will send you an email detailing your booking request summary. This is an acknowledgement that we have received your offer, and should the arrangements requested be available at the price quoted, a binding agreement will come into existence between us. If the arrangements are not available, or are available but not at the price quoted, we will contact you by telephone or by email to give you the option to purchase the new arrangements, or the existing arrangements at the revised price. Once the holiday arrangements have been agreed, we will then process the payments referred to in clause 6 below and book the agreed arrangements in accordance with your instructions.
Alternatively to make a booking you can contact our call centre as featured on our website. These terms and conditions, and those of the Supplier(s) will apply.
Once we have confirmed all arrangements with the Supplier(s) and confirmed this by email to you, our agreement with you for a Sunmaster single-contract package will become binding. In all other cases, your agreement with the applicable supplier(s) becomes binding when we have confirmed all arrangements with the Supplier(s) and we issue a confirmation on their behalf. Please note that each booking request is treated separately on our online booking request system. If larger groups want to be sure of sufficient availability for any flights ⁄ hotels they should call our call centre. If two parts of the same group request to book online on two separate requests and the holiday availability expires between the two bookings please note that you are likely to become liable for cancellation charges levied by the supplier(s) of the first booked arrangements.
Please check all details on the confirmation (or any other document issued) immediately on receipt. You must contact us immediately if any information which appears on the confirmation or any other document appears to be incorrect or incomplete as it may not be possible to make changes later. Please note, it may not be possible to make any changes without incurring an administration fee. Any changes will also be subject to any charges as per the tour operator ⁄ supplier terms and conditions. Please refer to Section 3 "Travel Documentation" for further details.
If you wish to make any changes to your arrangements after they have been confirmed, including if you wish to cancel all or some of them, the Lead Passenger must inform us in writing as soon as possible by completing the contact form on the "Contact Us" page of our website. Your notice requesting a change or cancellation will only take effect when it is received in writing by us and will be effective from the date on which we receive it.
We can't guarantee that changes can be met, although we will do our best to assist. Since we and suppliers incur costs in cancelling or changing your arrangements, all such changes and cancellations will be subject to an administration fee of £100 per change as well as the charges below or as detailed in the supplier's booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). Where we are unable to assist with making a requested change and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking, we will treat this as a cancellation by you.
Note: Certain arrangements, including most “Low Cost” or so called “No Frills” flights may not be amended after they have been confirmed and any alteration could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements.
If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim these charges.
For the avoidance of doubt, any cancellation charges levied are wholly independent from the deposit arrangements on any given booking and in the event that you cancel your booking you must immediately pay any shortfall between payments made by you against that booking and the cancellation charge applied, and in accepting these Booking Conditions you give your authority for us to automatically charge the payment card used by you when securing the booking (or any other card used by you in connection with other bookings placed through us) at that time.
You may cancel any package arrangements prior to their commencement (following the process outlined above) in the event that i) circumstances amounting to unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances (as set out in the clause bearing that title) are occurring at the place where your arrangements are due to be performed or its immediate vicinity and; ii) those circumstances make it impossible to travel safely to the travel destination; and iii) the performance of your arrangements will be significantly affected by those unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances. In the event that you may, you will receive a refund without undue delay of any payments made but this the maximum extent of our liability and we regret we cannot meet any other expenses or losses you may incur as a result. For third party single contract packages, please see the supplier's terms and conditions.
You acknowledge and agree that if the circumstances in question existed at the time you placed the booking, they will not be considered unavoidable or extraordinary, and accordingly you may not rely upon them should you choose to cancel your booked arrangements between the time you made the booking and the time of travel. All bookings cancelled in such circumstances will be subject to our standard cancellation charges (set out below). This would include (but is not limited to) cases where the FCDO advises against travel to your chosen destination due to Covid-19 infections in that destination at the time of travel, even if that advice was not in place at the time of booking. In those circumstances it is likely that your travel arrangements will still be operating and available to you. Should you wish to cancel, we will work with our suppliers to obtain a refund of your package travel arrangements. However, it may not be possible to provide a refund of all elements of your package where the booked arrangements are non-refundable.
If your arrangements are a package and 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, including an agreement to these booking conditions) providing we are notified in writing not less than seven days before departure and you pay an amendment fee and meet all costs and charges incurred by us and/or incurred or imposed by us or any of our suppliers. Both you and the person to whom you would like to transfer your arrangements shall be jointly and severally liable for the payment of any balance due and for any additional fees, charges or other costs arising from the transfer. If you are unable to find a replacement, cancellation charges as set out below will apply in order to cover our estimated costs. Otherwise, no refunds will be given for passengers not travelling or for unused services. For third party single contract packages, please see the supplier's terms and conditions.
Cancellation charges in the event of cancellation by you
Bookings cancelled more than 14 days before departure – loss of all deposits paid (initial and subsequent deposit instalments if applicable) whether the outstanding deposit has been paid or not.
Booking cancelled 14 days or less before departure – 100% of the booking value.
Because we and suppliers plan your arrangements many months in advance, in some circumstances we and they must make changes to them and cancel them.
Changes and cancellations to multi-contract packages and Sunmaster single contract packages
Where we refer to a 'price reduction' in this clause and in 'Our Responsibilities', we mean that we will give you an appropriate reduction in the price you paid for the arrangements affected for any period during which there was lack of conformity, (unless that lack of conformity is attributable to you). Where we refer to 'compensation', we will pay you appropriate compensation without undue delay for any damage which you sustain as a result of any lack of conformity subject to the limitations and exclusions in section B of 'Our Responsibilities'.
Changes and cancellations to multi-contract packages and Sunmaster single contract packages before departure
Most changes will be insignificant and we and suppliers reserve the right to make them. We will have no responsibilities to you in respect of any insignificant changes. Examples of "insignificant changes" made before departure include, but are not limited to, the following:
Occasionally we or suppliers may have to make a significant change to your confirmed arrangements and we and they reserve the right to do so. A significant change is one where we or a supplier significantly alters any essential element of your arrangements (other than the price) owing to circumstances beyond our or their control. Examples of "significant changes" made before departure include, but are not limited to, the following:
If we or the supplier has to make a significant change or cancel before departure, we will inform you without undue delay and if there is time to do so before departure, we will offer you the choice of the following options:-
(for significant changes) agreeing to the changed arrangements,
accepting the cancellation or terminating the contract for the arrangements and receiving a refund (without undue delay) of all monies paid; or
accepting an offer of alternative arrangements of comparable standard from us, if available.
(In the event that any proposed change or alternative offered results in a reduction or increase in the price you have agreed to pay or an increase or decrease in the quality of arrangements we have agreed to provide, we will also notify you of any price reduction or additional amount due).
You must notify us of your choice within 7 days of our offer. If you fail to do so, we will contact you again, re-iterating the above choices and sums payable or refundable and if you again fail to respond within 7 days, we may terminate the contract and refund all payments made by you without undue delay.
Where you choose option ii) and where your arrangements are a package, we will where appropriate, pay you reasonable compensation, subject to the limitations and exclusions in section B of ‘Our Responsibilities'. The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so.
We will not pay you compensation where:-
we make a significant change or cancel before you have paid the final balance of the cost of your arrangements;
we make a significant change or cancel as a result of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances as set out in the clause bearing that title;
we cancel your arrangements no later than 20 days before they are due to start because the minimum number of participants to run them has not been reached.
We will not make a price reduction or pay you compensation; and the above options will not be available where:-
we make an insignificant change;
we cancel as a result of any failure by you (including a failure to make payment in accordance with these terms);
where the change(s) or cancellation by us arises out of alterations to the confirmed booking requested by you.
Changes and cancellations to multi-contract packages and Sunmaster single contract packages arrangements after departure
If we become unable to provide a significant proportion of your contract package arrangements after you have departed, we will try to offer you suitable alternative arrangements of, where possible, equivalent or higher quality than those specified in the contract. If the alternative arrangements we make are of a lower quality than those you originally booked, we will make a price reduction. Where our original agreement included return transport we will also provide you with equivalent transport back to your place of departure without undue delay or additional cost. You may reject the proposed alternative arrangements only if they are not comparable to what we originally promised to provide or if the price reduction we offer is inadequate. Where we are unable to make suitable alternative arrangements or you reject the proposed alternative arrangements in accordance with this clause, where appropriate and only where your arrangements are a single-contract or multi-contract package, we will pay you compensation subject to section B of ‘Our Responsibilities'.
Where we are unable to ensure your return from a package as agreed because of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances which directly prevent you from returning to your point of departure, we will bear the cost of necessary accommodation if possible of equivalent category for a period not exceeding (a) 3 nights per traveller (exceptions apply in respect of persons with reduced mobility and people travelling with them, pregnant women and unaccompanied minors, as well as persons in need of specific medical assistance, provided that we have been notified of their particular needs at least 48 hours before the start of the package); or (b) where a different period is specified in any passenger rights legislation applicable to the relevant means of transport for your return, for the period specified in that legislation.
Changes to single element bookings and third party single contract packages
We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the supplier needs to make a significant change to your confirmed single element arrangements or to cancel them. We will also liaise between you and the supplier in relation to any alternative arrangements offered by the supplier but we will have no further liability to you.
Changes to flights
Unfortunately, airlines may occasionally change the type of aircraft on a particular flight without advance warning. Flight timings and days of operation are subject to change and we will advise you of any significant change if and as soon as we are informed by the airline. Minor timing changes will be shown on the flight tickets, which you should check carefully when received. It is possible that flight times may be changed even after tickets have been dispatched - we will contact you as soon as possible if the supplier makes us aware of such changes.
We are not always in a position to confirm the airline or aircraft type which will be used in connection with any particular flight. When this information is provided at the time of booking or subsequently, it is subject to change. Any such change will not entitle you to cancel or change to other arrangements without paying any supplier(s) charges.
It may be necessary for you to reconfirm your flight with the airline. Please check this in the correspondence received from your flights supplier, including the supplier's Booking Conditions. You should take a note of any reference number or contact names when reconfirming. If you fail to reconfirm you may be refused permission to board the aircraft and you will not be entitled to receive any refund.
In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 2111/2005 Article 9, we are required to bring to your attention the existence of a "Community list" which contains details of air carriers that are subject to an operating ban with the EU Community.
Please check the travel documents we send to you and any other documentation you receive in relation to your booking as soon as you receive it. Please contact us immediately if any information appears to be incorrect or incomplete as it may not be possible to make changes later. Your rights may be affected if we are not notified of any inaccuracy in any documentation (including tickets) within 3 days of it being provided to you. We will endeavour to rectify or arrange for the rectification of any errors notified to us outside these time limits but you will usually be responsible for any costs involved in doing so.
It is a condition of booking with us that you have a valid and working email address. All travel documentation will be issued electronically (except for some airline tickets). Should you request any documentation posting you will be charged a handling fee of £10 to cover administration costs and Royal Mail Special Delivery.
As part of our ongoing responsibility to help combat ID theft and financial crime, we may perform an electronic identity check as part of our booking process to ensure that you are who you say you are. Where an electronic identity check is carried out we use a third party to electronically verify these details. In order to do so we will send them your name, address, date of birth and telephone number. A record of the search may be retained and this information may be used in the future by other businesses who use the service for the same purpose and with whom you do business. This identity check does not include a credit application check. The third party that we use is fully aware of and compliant with its obligations under the Data Protection Act and will always act in accordance with its provisions.
Except where our Low Deposit offers are available (see below), payment for flights is due in full at the time of booking via credit/debit card.
6A(i) – Low Deposit Scheme: Flights
We may, in our sole discretion, offer you the option to pay a low deposit in respect of certain bookings. Where this offer is available (as indicated next to the specific flight in your search results, or as advised by your agent), we will pay the relevant airline for the flight element of your travel arrangements in full, on your behalf, at the time of your booking. We will require a low deposit from you in the amount shown in the search results (or as advised by your agent) at the time of booking.
The balance of your flight cost will be due to us from you 28 days after booking unless you qualify for the staggered payment option outlined further below.
14 days prior to departure, the balance of your holiday cost will become due.
6A(ii) – Staggered Payment
Staggered payment options for flights will be available on qualifying bookings. We will advise you at the time of booking if your booking qualifies for a staggered payment.
An initial deposit of £49 per person will be payable on the day of booking.
50% of the remainder of the flight cost will be payable 28 days after booking. The remaining balance of your flight cost will be due 56 days after booking.
Irrespective of payment due dates for flights, 14 days prior to departure, the balance of your remaining holiday cost will become due.
Please note that our usual transaction fee of £4.95 will be payable on every payment you make under the low deposit scheme. This applies to each instalment and covers our processing and administration costs.
All flight balance payments will be taken automatically from the card used to pay the low deposit. If you wish to pay any balance payments using an alternative method, please contact us no less than 7 days prior to the payment due date. If we are contacted later than this date, we cannot guarantee that payment will not be taken or attempted from your original payment method. Please note that even if you cancel your arrangements within 28 days of booking, or 56 days for bookings that qualify for a staggered payment, the balance of your flight will be payable in full, as we have already paid this money to the airline on your behalf, plus any other cancellation fees that may be levied by the supplier(s) of your arrangements.
6B – Low Deposit Scheme: Accommodation
If a booking is made more than 14 days before the date of travel, some accommodation suppliers may accept payment of a deposit of 15% of the cost of the accommodation booking at the time of the booking, with the balance to be paid no later than 14 days before the date of travel. The amount of deposit will be confirmed at the time of booking. Note that most suppliers will not refund any deposit paid.
Occasionally, promotional deposits may be offered which are less than the standard deposit of 15%.
If not paid in full at the time of booking, we will confirm to you the date on which the balance of the cost of your arrangements falls due. Unless specifically instructed otherwise, we shall automatically charge the balance payment to the debit or credit card used to pay the deposit. If we do not receive your balance by the confirmed payment due date, the supplier(s) concerned may treat your booking as cancelled and apply a cancellation charge of up to 100% of the cost of the holiday arrangements in accordance with ‘Changes and Cancellations by you'..
We will contact you to remind you when your balance is due. If you are late in paying the balance due, we will send you a further reminder. If your balance remains unpaid 3 days following your payment due date, we will notify the supplier who may cancel the booking and the cancellation charges in Changes and Cancellations by you' will apply.
6C – All Bookings
Please note that a transaction fee will be charged for all payments to cover processing and administration costs. The fee is currently £4.95 per individual transaction. We regret we cannot accept payments in cash or cheque either via post or in person at our offices. All transaction fees are subject to change at any time.
Please note that local resort charges, which are not included in the cost of your booking, are occasionally levied directly by the hotel and are payable by you in resort.
Please note that the prices we advertise are based on bookings made by UK residents only. If you are not a UK Resident or UK passport holder, you may be liable upon check-in/check-out for additional charges. We will not be liable for any such additional charges.
If you are late in paying for the cost of your arrangements, we will attempt to contact you to discuss your payment options, and, if possible, agree an extension of time for you to make payment. Any agreement to extend the time for making payment will be at our discretion. Please note that a late payment fee of £12 will be payable to cover processing and administration costs and shall be added to the final balance amount to be taken automatically from the card used to pay the deposit, on the new agreed date, or via an alternative payment method, if specifically instructed to do so prior to the new agreed date.
If payment is not made as agreed, we reserve the right to cancel your booking and our usual cancellation fees in Changes and Cancellations by you' will apply.
Any money paid to us in respect of a booking including flights is held on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust at all times, but subject to our obligation to pay it to The Global Travel Group for as long as we do not fail financially. If we do fail financially, any money we hold at that time or subsequently accepted from the consumer, is and continues to be held for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust without any obligation to pay that money to the Global Travel Group.
Please note that where you book more than one flight (even where these flights have been selected by us to fit your holiday schedule), each flight constitutes a single element booking as defined in these conditions and is a separate arrangement between you and the relevant airline. It is not a package and the Booking Conditions of each supplier will apply. As such, any changes to one leg of your flight will not necessarily impact upon the other flight(s). For example, cancellation or amendment of a booking for one flight leg by either you or the airline has no impact on any other remaining bookings for other flight legs or other travel services, except that in the event that cancellation or amendment amounts to a significant change, then the provisions relating to significant changes in ‘If we or the supplier changes or cancels' will apply.
We cannot accept liability for any delay which is due to unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances as set out in the clause bearing that title. A delay to or cancellation of your transport service does not automatically entitle you to cancel any other arrangements even where those arrangements have been made in conjunction with your transport. However, you may be entitled to claim under the delay section of your travel insurance policy.
Under the Denied Boarding Regulation (EU 261/2004), if you have been denied boarding, your flight has been cancelled or it has been significantly delayed, it is the airline's duty to look after you. This means providing food, drinks, and some communications. If you are delayed overnight, this also means a hotel and travel to and from it. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. We have no liability to you in these circumstances whatsoever and your claim for this assistance and any compensation must be made directly to the airline. Liability of an airline under EU 261/2004 will not automatically entitle you to a refund of your holiday price from us. If, for any reason, you do not claim against the airline and make a claim for compensation from us, you must, at the time of payment of any compensation to you, make a complete assignment to us of the rights you have against the airline in relation to the claim that gives rise to that compensation payment.
Some airlines operate on a 'no frills basis', therefore checked baggage, meals and refreshments are not automatically included in the cost of your arrangement(s) and may need to be added at extra cost at the time of booking or will be payable at the airport or onboard the aircraft. In addition other optional extras; including but not limited to pre-bookable seating, extra leg-room seating, airport parking or/and airport hotels are not automatically included in the cost of your arrangements. Please note that optional extras may incur additional charges if not added at the time of booking. Additional charges for cots may be applied by hotels directly. Please enquire at the time of booking for details of any optional extras. Please note that suppliers may not permit the cancellation of optional extras or provide a refund in respect of them once booked.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of information and prices that appear on our website, regrettably errors do occasionally occur as we are reliant upon our supplier(s) to provide us with the most up-to-date prices. Please note that advertised information and prices may have changed by the time you come to book your holiday arrangements. You must therefore ensure that you check all details of your chosen holiday arrangements (including the price) at the time your booking is confirmed.
Where inaccuracies relate to the understatement of the price of a specific product, you will be offered either a full refund of money paid on that booking only or the opportunity to maintain that booking on payment to us of the additional payment which is necessary.
Please bear in mind that accommodation owners, restaurateurs, night club owners etc, may wish to maintain or improve their facilities, or even take a break themselves. Flight times and carriers are given for guidance only as there may be changes. Circumstances such as these, or weather conditions, time of year etc., may cause some of the amenities we have described to be unavailable or different from those advertised. There may also from time to time be general refurbishment at these establishments. These are necessary to maintain standards but if we are informed of such work, we will endeavour to notify you of any activity as soon as possible, however near to your departure this may be.
If you have cause for complaint whilst on holiday, you must immediately bring it to the attention of the management of the property or service. If after having done so, assistance is not forthcoming, or you are unable to resolve the problem, you must call the emergency number or UK helpline telephone number as detailed on your voucher. You should note that it is unreasonable to take no action whilst on holiday, but to then write a letter of complaint upon your return. If you remain dissatisfied, you must submit an official complaint via the feedback section of our website, (which can be found via the "Contact" pages), within 28 days of your return from holiday, giving your booking reference and full details of your complaint. If you fail to follow this simple complaints procedure (in resort and on your return home), your right to any compensation you may otherwise have been entitled to may be affected or even lost as a result.
We would always recommend that you drink bottled water and avoid ice in drinks. Be sure that food is properly cooked or properly chilled and that salads and unpeeled fruits have been thoroughly washed. If in doubt, do not eat it, and try not to over indulge. If you have any concerns regarding the food at your resort, please inform the accommodation provider straight away.
In the unlikely event that you or any member of your party is ill, please ensure that a doctor is seen locally and that you inform your accommodation provider during your stay. Please also contact us on 0344 493 00 09 in order that we can provide you with appropriate assistance. The health and safety of our customers is paramount to Sunmaster, and we will take up any complaints of illness or injury with the supplier to ensure we are only providing safe and enjoyable holidays to our customers.
PLEASE NOTE – Sunmaster is aware of the growing trend in bringing false sickness claims against tour operators. If we have reason to believe that your claim or complaint is false or exaggerated, we will work with the tour operator and the relevant authorities to take appropriate action. Customers bringing false allegations against a tour operator may face prosecution in the UK or abroad.
Please be aware that the majority of our Suppliers do not employ staff overseas and, in the main, the nature and type of holiday booked with Sunmaster do not include the services of what one may consider to be a conventional "Representative" service provided by the large traditional "Tour Operators"
It is a condition of our accepting your booking that the person who makes it is at least 18. We are entitled to assume that this is the case. Under no circumstances can we accept bookings from anyone who is under 16. At our discretion, we may accept a booking from someone who is 16 or 17 and not accompanied by an adult providing we have written confirmation from their parent or guardian that they may travel, that the parent or guardian will accept responsibility for the booking and that the party does not include anyone who is under 16. We are entitled to cancel any booking which is made in breach of any of these requirements. In this case, it is likely that the supplier will impose full cancellation charges.
You MUST take out fully comprehensive travel insurance. It will normally cover you in the event of cancellation against loss of deposit or cancellation fees and for medical costs in the event of you becoming ill or having an accident whilst on holiday. There are some restrictions on insurance, for example pre-existing medical conditions and you should advise the insurance provider of these at the time the policy is taken out. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is suitable and adequate for your particular needs. Details of a policy suitable to cover your arrangements are available at https://sunmasterinsurance.co.uk
If you wish to make a special request, you must do so at the time of booking using the special requests section on the secure payment page. We will pass any reasonable requests on to the relevant supplier but we cannot guarantee that requests will be met. The fact that a special request has been noted on your confirmation invoice or any other documentation or that it has been passed on to the supplier is not confirmation that the request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not constitute a breach of contract.
If you or any member of your party has any medical problem, disability or mobility issues which may affect your chosen holiday arrangements, you must provide us with full details at the time of booking. We will give you information about whether the arrangements you have chosen are generally suitable for persons with reduced mobility but if you or any member of your party has any precise medical problem or disability which may affect your chosen arrangements, please provide us with full details before we issue our confirmation. We will only provide precise information on the suitability of the arrangements taking into account your needs if you specifically request us to do so. If we reasonably feel unable to properly accommodate the particular needs of the person(s) concerned, we will not confirm the booking or, if full details are not given at the time of booking, we may cancel the booking when we become aware of these details. Cancellation charges will apply. Please note that as we do not specialise in holidays for disabilities or mobility problems, we are unable to accept any liability if the chosen holiday arrangements prove to be unsuitable for your needs. You should therefore carry out your own thorough research as to the suitability of your chosen holiday arrangements prior to booking.
Passengers with a non-British passport must check passport and visa requirements with the Embassy or Consulate of the countries to, or through, which you are intending to travel. Requirements may change and you must check the up to date position in good time before departure.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are in possession of all necessary travel and health documents before departure. We regret we cannot accept any liability if you are refused entry onto any transport or into any country due to failure on your part to carry correct documentation. If failure to have any necessary travel or other documents results to fines, surcharges or other financial penalty being imposed on us, you will be responsible for reimbursing us accordingly.

Except where otherwise expressly stated in these booking conditions we will not be liable or pay you a price reduction or compensation if our contractual obligations to you are affected by unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances beyond the control of the party who seeks to rely on them which we or the supplier(s) of the service(s) in question could not avoid even if all reasonable measures had been taken. These events can include, but are not limited to war, threat of war, civil strife, terrorist activity and its consequences or the threat of such activity, riot, the act of any government or other national or local authority including port or river authorities, industrial dispute, lock closure, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, chemical or biological disaster and adverse weather, sea, ice and river conditions and all similar events outside our or the supplier(s) concerned's control.
Assistance to those travelling on a multi-contract package or Sunmaster single contract package in the event of difficulty or unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances
Where you have booked a multi-contract package or Sunmaster single contract package, we will provide appropriate assistance without undue delay in the event that you experience difficulty including where you are unable to return to your agreed point of departure because of unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances which directly prevent you from returning to your point of departure. Such assistance will extend to providing appropriate information on health services, local authorities and consular assistance; and helping you to make distance communications and to find alternative travel arrangements. We will charge a reasonable fee for such assistance if the difficulty is caused by you intentionally or as a result of your act or omission. In the event such assistance is needed please contact 0344 493 0009
A. Our responsibilities differ according to what you have booked:
In relation to bookings of Sunmaster single contract and multi-contract packages
We accept responsibility as an "organiser" under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018. Subject to these booking conditions, if we fail to arrange or perform your package arrangements in accordance with our agreement, we will remedy any resulting lack of conformity. If that is impossible or entails disproportionate costs (taking into account the extent of the lack of conformity and the value of the arrangements affected), we will instead pay you compensation subject to clause B of this clause. Please note, it is your responsibility to show that we or our supplier(s) have been negligent if you wish to make a claim against us.
In relation to single element bookings or third party single contract packages
As booking agent we accept no responsibility for the acts or omissions of the supplier(s) or for the services provided by them. Your booking is directly with them. Other than where we are negligent in the provision of our booking services to you, we accept no liability or responsibility for any complaint, loss, damage, expense or other claim in respect of any aspect of your arrangements.
Please note in relation to all bookings: It is a condition of our acceptance of the responsibility above that you inform us and the supplier(s) concerned without undue delay of the lack of conformity you perceive; and allow us a reasonable period in which to remedy it. Please contact 0344 493 0009
B. Limitations and exclusions of responsibility
In these terms and conditions, our responsibilities are limited, and our duty to pay compensation is limited and excluded as follows:-
We will not be responsible, make a price reduction or pay you compensation for any lack of conformity, 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;
(b) the act(s) and/or omission(s) of a third party unconnected with the provision of your arrangements and which were unforeseeable or unavoidable; or
(c) Unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances as set out in the clause bearing that title.
We will not be responsible, make a price reduction or pay compensation:-
a) for services or facilities which do not form part of our agreement or where they are not advertised by us. For example any excursion you book while away, or any service or facility which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide for you (including services you have arranged and paid for directly with an airline, such as additional luggage).
b) 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 arrangements prior to them being confirmed, we could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur if we breached our contract with you; or that relate to any business.
Any price reduction or compensation that is payable will be calculated taking into consideration all relevant factors for example (but not limited to):-
(a) whether or not you have followed the complaints and notifications procedure as described in these conditions. 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.
(b) the extent to which ours or our employees' or suppliers' negligence affected the overall enjoyment of your arrangements.
(c) deduction that we must make to take account of any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from any transport provider or hotelier for the complaint or claim in question.
(Please also note that 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.)
Luggage or personal possessions and money:
The maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of any claim for loss of and/or damage to any luggage or personal possessions or money 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.
Claims covered by an International Convention
When arranging transportation for you, we rely on the terms and conditions contained within any applicable International Conventions. The extent of or the conditions under which compensation is to be paid or liability accepted will in all cases be limited as if we were carriers under the appropriate Conventions, which include 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 us for copies of these Conventions.
Any other claims which don't involve injury, illness, death or damage caused by us or our suppliers intentionally or negligently; or other liability that can't be limited by law
The maximum amount we will have to pay you in respect of all such claims is three times (twice in the case of single elements or third party single contract packages) 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 arrangements.
If in our reasonable belief or opinion or in the reasonable belief or opinion of any person in authority, your behaviour is jeopardising the safety of aircraft, people or property therein or good order and discipline on board; or is causing or is likely to cause distress, danger, damage or annoyance to any third party or property, or to cause a delay or diversion to transportation, we reserve the right to terminate your arrangements immediately. In the event of such termination our responsibilities to you will cease and you will be required to leave your accommodation or other service immediately. We will have no further obligations to you and will not meet any expenses, costs or losses incurred as a result. You may also be required to pay for loss and/or damage caused by your actions directly to the applicable supplier prior to departure from the service. If you fail to do so, you will be responsible for meeting any claims and costs subsequently made against us as a result.
THE PRICE OF MULTI-CONTRACT PACKAGES AND SUNMASTER SINGLE-CONTRACT PACKAGES
The price of your confirmed multi-contract package or Sunmaster single contract package is subject to variations which occur solely as a direct consequence of changes in:-
(a) the price of the carriage of passengers resulting from the cost of fuel or other power sources; or
(b) the level of taxes or fees on your confirmed arrangements imposed by third parties not directly involved in the performance of the package, including tourist taxes, landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports; or.
(c) the exchange rates relevant to the package.
If your arrangements are a multi-contract package or Sunmaster single contract package, and if that means that you have to pay an increase of more than 8% of the price of your arrangements (excluding any insurance premiums, amendment charges and/or additional services), we will offer you the options in clause 8. If prices go down as a result of the above factors, we will make a reflective refund, but we will also deduct our administrative expenses from what is owed to you and this may extinguish the value of the refund due. Also, note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on price due to contractual protections in place.
FINANCIAL PROTECTION FOR MULTI-CONTRACT PACKAGES OR SUNMASTER SINGLE CONTRACT PACKAGES
We provide full financial protection for our flight inclusive multi-contract package or Sunmaster single contract package holidays, by way of our membership of the Global Travel Group Ltd via their Air Travel Organiser's
Price variations will be calculated by applying the cost differential we experience as a result of the above factors. Prices may go up or down and we will notify you about any variation by sending you a calculation explaining the variation no less than 20 days before you are due to depart.
Licence number 3973, issued by the Civil Aviation Authority, Gatwick Airport South, West Sussex, RH6 0YR, UK, telephone 0333 103 6350, email [email protected] 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 will provide you with the services listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative). In some cases, where we aren't 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 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.
For further information, visit the ATOL website at www.atol.org.uk. The price of our flight inclusive arrangements includes the amount of £2.50 per person as part of the ATOL Protection Contribution (APC) we pay to the CAA. This charge is included in our advertised prices. Not all holiday or travel services offered and sold by us will be protected by the ATOL Scheme. ATOL protection extends primarily to Customers who book and pay in the United Kingdom.
All of our flight prices also include a 50p charge per person as a contribution to the cost of flight protection insurance. This charge will be displayed along with the APC as “ATOL and Airline Protection" on your Holiday Summary page.
If you book arrangements other than a Flight-Inclusive multi-contract package or Sunmaster single contract package, your monies will not be financially protected by us but may be protected by the supplier of your arrangements.Close Section
