Because you can book different combinations of travel arrangements with us, in these terms we use different terms to describe them. Where you book a combination of flights (or other transport arrangements), accommodation or car hire and any other tourist service(s) accounting for a significant proportion of the holiday, for the purpose of the same trip or holiday, this will create an ‘Event’ We organise our own packages and, in these terms, we also sell packages organised by other travel companies and in these terms, they are called ‘Supplier’.

These terms and conditions govern the contract between you and us to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions save for those implied by law, and no variation to these terms and conditions shall be valid unless in writing and signed by you and the company director.

No contract shall arise between you and us until we have received the deposit payable and we have sent to you written confirmation (This can be in the form of an email) of our acceptance of your booking.
3. Lead Name
The lead name on any booking with us accepts the full responsibility of collecting the full balance payable for the booking and indemnifies “Wonderluxe Travel Ltd” against any loss from any individual failing to pay within your group. The lead name of the group is also responsible for ensuring that all group members are aware they are bound by our terms and conditions. The lead name is also responsible for the completion of the online guest list on behalf of all persons on the booking. It is understood that those booking via email or telephone agree to and accept our terms and conditions.
4. Payment & Deposits

An agreed non-refundable non-transferable deposit is payable at the time of booking.
The final balance is to be paid no less than 84 Days (Twelve Weeks) before the date upon which your event is due to start. Failure to pay by this date will result in a £20 per person late payment charge.
If you do not make your deposit payments by the due dates given then you shall be deemed to have cancelled the event. Deposits are used by us to enter into the contractual arrangements on your behalf and are non-refundable.
Payments can be made with a valid Credit Card or Debit Card and online bank transfers, where upon receipt we will endeavour to place the booking for you at the same price, although this cannot be guaranteed. We will however notify you should there be an increase in price.

for safety reasons if we or our supplier(s) regard adverse weather conditions or other safety concerns as unacceptable and which cannot reasonably be overcome; If we reasonably believe that you may cause harm or damage to our reputation or to the reputation of our suppliers or to property belonging to our suppliers; If a supplier or suppliers are unable to host the event for any reason; If changes you wish to make to the booking mean it is uneconomical or impractical to hold the event. If we cancel the whole of the event, we shall use our best endeavours to rearrange the event on a mutually convenient date, or provide a refund to you of the cost to us of the event. Save as above, we shall be under no further liability to you for cancellation of the event or any part of it.

If you cancel with us more than Three Weeks in advance of the travel date then the cancellation fee is a minimum of 35% the total booking cost, or the total amount paid to us at that time on the booking. If you cancel with us within one week of the travel date, then the cancellation fee is 100% of the total cost of the booking.

Under EU Law, you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from the airline in cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. If the airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to the Civil Aviation Authority at www.caa.co.uk/passengers. Reimbursement in such cases is the responsibility of the airline and 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. A delay or cancellation to your flight does not automatically entitle you to cancel any other arrangements even where those arrangements have been made in conjunction with your flight.
Breakfast nor any other board basis is not included with accommodation bookings unless otherwise stated. The type of meal you will receive will be confirmed upon arrival at your accommodation (this may be hot or cold regardless of your quotation). Restaurant meals may require a pre-order to be completed by the lead name of the group. This should be completed and returned to us, or the venue as required. If a pre-order has not been completed, we accept no liability for meals not provided or delays in providing the meals for you. We will endeavour to meet any specialist dietary requests for any member of your group but cannot guarantee these requests. We accept no liability if our suppliers are unable to meet these requests in advance, or once at the venue. If your group arrives late then we accept no liability.
11. Alterations + Surcharges Applied by Us
If due to circumstances beyond our control it becomes necessary to substitute an alternative supplier or make any other alterations to the event (including accommodation) we shall inform you of the changes as soon as possible. You must pay any additional cost due to such changes. If the changes are, in the view of “Wonderluxe Travel Ltd” so substantial as to materially alter the event and you are unwilling to accept them then you may cancel the event and we will give a refund of the cost of the event to us. Surcharges may be applicable where an event requires a minimum number of participants to proceed, and the group does not meet this minimum number. This could lead to the cancellation of the event of which we are not held responsible and alternatives may be offered of an equal or greater value. If this value is greater, then you must pay us the difference in price. If the final number of a group is an odd number, then a single supplement surcharge will apply if the booking or an event (including accommodation) which is number dependent.
