IF WE AMMEND/CANCEL YOUR HOLIDAY
Every effort will be made to operate all trips as advertised but it must be remembered that our trips are planned in advance. Please note that the accommodation and services featured are indicative of those planned to use for the various trips, but it may be necessary to use alternatives in some cases. We therefore reserve the sole right, at our discretion, to modify or cancel any trip, flight schedule, accommodation or arrangement at any time. We will notify you as soon as possible of any material changes and they will form part of our contract with you.
A material modification is one which has a serious effect on your trip and includes a change of departure date, departure point or airport, or change of departure time of more than twelve hours, which would cause substantial inconvenience to you. Accommodation is not considered as a material change
Should a material change (or cancellation) prove necessary we will give you reasonable notice thereof, in the circumstances, and where available, offer you a comparable alternative.
If an alternative is not available or acceptable you will be entitled to either a full refund of monies paid by you to us or transfer to another C the world holiday without payment of any transfer fee.
If the change or cancellation is due to force majeure (i.e. circumstances like political unrest, war or threat of war, riots, civil strife, closure of airports or ports, industrial disputes, terrorist activity, natural and nuclear disasters, fire, epidemic or health risk, Acts of God, adverse weather conditions or other similar events beyond C the Word’s control) we will give a full refund of any monies paid to us less reasonable expenses incurred by us in respect of your booking.
C the world is not responsible for the costs of any other travel arrangements affected due to our cancellations, modifications or rescheduling of any tour departure.
The advertised rates are based on an exchange rate when the tour was planned in the local currency. Please contact the office in order to find out what exchange rate was used for your specific tour. Additional payments might be due in case of currency fluctuations. Please note that should there be a difference on this date of the exchange rate, you will have an additional payment.
On the date that we book our flights we get an estimate of what the flight/airport taxes will be for the date of ticketing (30 days prior to departure as per our contracts with airlines).
Once the flight tickets have been issued, the difference in taxes will be emailed to the main booking member once available and needs to be paid at least 2 weeks prior to departure.
All passengers are required to take out travel insurance, covering personal accident, medical expenses, baggage and loss of deposit through cancellation.
Tour itineraries and travel arrangements are subject to alteration where necessary according to local conditions en route, without prior notice. Due to various prevailing and unforeseen circumstances, tours are not always able to follow the provisional routing as set out in the published itinerary. Information contained therein should therefore be regarded as a basic guide only.
PASSPORTS AND VISAS
The responsibility to obtain valid passports and visas is that of the customer alone. The company shall not be responsible or liable for any consequence of any nature arising from the customer failing to ensure that he/she has complied with all such requirements. The Customer must ensure that their passport is valid for at least six months beyond the end of the travel period. C the world bears no responsibility for incorrect passport or immigration documentation.
RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY
C the world accepts no liability whatsoever for any loss, damage, injury, accident, delay or any other irregularity howsoever arising from any planned itinerary. C the World will make every effort to ensure that all the arrangements and services connected with a passengers itinerary will be carried out as specified and/or in the most efficient and effective way possible.
