Phokaia Beach Resort


Every moment matters Back in 1974, two friends came together and signed up 500 customers for ski holidays with a house-party atmosphere. Following their success, Mark Warner was born and over time, branched out into summer activity holidays. In the 80s we introduced our now famous childcare programme. Fast forward 44 years and Mark Warner has now grown into one of the most highly regarded independent tour operators in the UK. The Mark Warner customer remains at the heart of everything we do. Our idyllic Mediterranean beach resorts with superb tennis, watersports and cycling facilities are real crowd pleasers but so is the freedom to simply unwind by the pool. Having welcomed Phokaia Beach Resort in Turkey into the programme in 2018 we are delighted to be returning to the much loved Paleros Beach Resort, Greece. This firm favourite has undergone a multi-million euro refurbishment and offers superb facilities and excellent conditions for watersports. We set very high standards and it is the infectious energy, enthusiasm and attention to detail of the Mark Warner team that has been at the core of our summer holidays. We passionately believe that your holiday is made up of hundreds of special moments and that every single one of them matters. So, take a moment and start planning your Mark Warner holiday. We look forward to welcoming you to our beach resorts this summer.

Still independent and fully bonded

Kidz evening entertainment (10 to 13 years) Children can dine with their families, or in peak season, join the Kidz club dinner followed by a supervised evening entertainment programme until 9.30pm.

Available 6 days a week for teenagers booked into Indy club, except for Phokaia Beach Resort on dining out nights.

When holidaying with children in hotter climates we would strongly advise that children always have plenty of sun lotion applied, drink lots of water and wear a UV T-shirt or rash vest and hat at all times.

Illness If your child becomes ill, you will be expected to take over his/her care in order to reduce the risk of transmitting any illness. Your child must be clear of illness before going back into the Children’s Club and re-admission is at the discretion of the Childcare Manager.

Informal supervision Please note that we cannot allow informal supervision in our crèches by nannies/carers who are not employed by Mark Warner as this can affect the operation of the Clubs and may lead to problems of accountability and legal responsibility.

Children’s equipment In our resorts which offer Baby or Toddler Clubs we supply travel cots, steam sterilisers, nappy changing facilities, baby baths and potties. Nappies, processed foods and powdered milk can all be purchased locally but if your child is used to a particular brand, we suggest you bring your own supplies. Please bring a small rucksack (labelled with your child’s name) for your child’s belongings during the day containing all the items from our checklist.

Babysitting Extra babysitting can be arranged in resort through the Childcare Manager at additional cost. Please note that babysitters are in high demand, and whilst every effort is made to accommodate requests, this service is subject to staff availability and cannot be guaranteed. Please give at least 24 hours’ notice if you require this.

Children’s beds Children 2 years of age and over will automatically be allocated a bed. If you wish to have a bed side barrier for your child’s bed, please contact our After Sales team.

Parents’ kitchen A parents’ kitchen or facility is provided in Lemnos, Perdepera, Phokaia, Paleros and San Lucianu Beach Resorts, where you will find a fridge, kettle, microwave, sterilisers and a supply of UHT whole milk. At Levante Beach Resort we provide bottle sterilisers and UHT milk in your room on request. Please let our Reservations team know at time of booking if you require these items.

Children’s mealtimes We know all about children’s appetites and the need for a healthy balanced diet. With this in mind we ensure appropriate dishes are on offer to suit their taste at every meal. There is a children’s high tea sitting each evening for babies and children 4 months to 9 years.

Travel Information Flight and transfer details

Infants

As our travel arrangements are made many months in advance, the flight details shown here, on the accommodation pages and on our website are provisional flight arrangements and approximate flying and transfer times. All flight timings are provisional and may change up to the point of departure. Your flight numbers and timings will be confirmed when e-tickets are issued approximately 7 – 10 days before departure. The airline or likely airline which will operate your flight will be advised at the time of booking. Where we can only advise you of the likely airline at the time of booking, we will confirm this as soon as we are in a position to do so. Bookings are not accepted on the basis that they are conditional on particular flight timings or carriers and a change of flight timing or airline does not entitle you to change or cancel your holiday unless otherwise stated in our Booking Conditions.

Please note that those under 2 years of age on the date of return travel to the UK are not allocated a seat on the aircraft and will need to sit on a parent’s knee. The cabin crew will be happy to heat up food you have brought with you. It may be possible on some of our charter flights on certain dates to purchase a seat for infants. For details, please ask our Reservations staff. Scheduled airlines may charge for infants of which we will advise you at the time of booking, where applicable.

On busy dates, it may be necessary to buy in extra seats which may be with different airlines and operate at different times to those shown in our brochure or on our website. Supplements may be payable for these flights. As transfers for these extra flights will often be operated in conjunction with our usual flights, there may be a short additional waiting time at the airport.

Scheduled and regional flights In addition to our contracted flights as listed, we can request further seats, subject to availability, from many airports. Price supplements for these will be payable. Please enquire at the time of booking and full details will be given to you. Scheduled international flights may operate at different times to our charter flights and separate transfers may then need to be arranged and paid for. If you miss your outbound scheduled flight, you must contact us or notify the airline directly to ensure your homeward flight is not affected.

Travel details and e-tickets E-tickets will be sent to you approximately 7 – 10 days before the start of your holiday. We must have an up to date email address for your booking. Please check your documents carefully as soon as you receive them as flight details can sometimes change from those published in the brochure or detailed on your confirmation invoice.

Connecting flights Please note that flight timings given at the time of booking are provisional and subject to change. Bookings are not accepted on the basis that they are conditional on particular flight timings. Guests with onward connections should allow plenty of time in the event of a schedule change or flight delay. We strongly recommend that tickets for onward connections are booked on a fully flexible basis to accommodate any changes or delays. If travelling with British Airways you cannot check bags all the way through to your final destination.

not less than two hours prior to the scheduled departure time. You should do so even if you have checked in online (where available) if you have hold luggage. Please also allow plenty of time to pass through security as this process can be slow. You will generally not be allowed to board the aircraft if you arrive at the gate after this has closed.

Online check-in Easyjet – Online check in is compulsory with Easyjet. You will be emailed your unique Easyjet locator reference numbers within a month of departure. You can then visit the Easyjet website www.easyjet.com to complete check-in. At this time you can also add a range of ancillary extras such as seat requests, meals and additional baggage. Thomas Cook – You can check-in online or at the airport. Online checkin opens 24 hours before departure. www.thomascookairlines.com British Airways – only allow check-in at the airport on the day of travel.

Pregnancy Women who are more than 33 weeks pregnant on their return date cannot travel on our charter flights. After the 28th week of pregnancy, a medical certificate confirming ‘fitness to fly’ is required which must confirm the expected date of birth. This must be issued as close to your departure date from the UK as possible. Scheduled airlines have their own policies on pregnancy which will apply. Please check your insurance policy for any restrictions on cover provided.

Check-in and security

Airport representatives

Catering

Check-in desks are opened at least two and a half hours before the scheduled departure time. As passengers who attempt to check-in after the last check-in time will not be allowed to do so and queues for check-in can be lengthy, we would ask you to arrive at the check-in desk with plenty of time and we recommend

For our charter flights, our own Mark Warner representative will be on hand at your departure airport to assist you to get away smoothly. Details of our UK representatives can be found online. When you arrive at your destination airport, our representative will be waiting to welcome you after you’ve come

Travel delays In the event of a delay departing from your UK airport, we do not provide refreshments, meals or accommodation. However, in certain circumstances, the airline may be required to provide assistance and their airport representatives will be able to advise. For delays on the return journey, we endeavour to arrange for the provision of assistance on the following basis: for a delay of more than 3 hours, light refreshments; for a delay of over 4 hours a meal at the appropriate time and for overnight delays, hotel accommodation and meals as appropriate. The provision of these facilities is generally the responsibility of the airline under the Denied Boarding Regulations (see our Booking Conditions) and cannot be guaranteed as circumstances often change. Where any arrangements are to be provided by Mark Warner (rather than the airline), our representative’s decision is final. Transfer coaches will occasionally be meeting more than one flight and any delay in flights arriving can cause a delay in the coach departing from the airport. Delays of more than 12 hours on either the outward or homeward journey may be covered by your personal travel insurance policy.

Own transport For travellers making their own way to resorts, we may offer a discount on the travel inclusive holiday cost, depending on the date and destination. This discount is only applicable to holidays sold at full brochure price and will only be given if we are advised at the time of booking that you do not require our

flight or transfers and cannot be added at a later date. If a coach transfer is required from the overseas airport where you have made your own flight arrangements, there will be a charge for this (subject to space being available). You must request this at the time of booking.

with the embassy or consulate of the country(ies) to or through which you are intending to travel.

Passports & visa requirements

Please note that Turkey requires 6 months validity on Passports. Additionally you must obtain a Turkish Visa before you travel at www.evisa.gov.tr

For holders of British or EU citizen passports, no visa is required for visiting any of the Mediterranean countries featured in this brochure. Citizens of other countries should consult their embassy or consulate for any passport and visa requirements. Contact our Reservations department if you have any queries. For British Citizens, adults require a ten year British passport for all the countries we operate to and children a five year British passport. A British passport generally takes approximately 3 to 6 weeks to obtain but can take longer at busy times. You should allow as much time as you can. Passports can be renewed up to 9 months prior to their expiry date with the unexpired time being added to the new passport. If you are 16 or over and haven’t yet got a passport, you should apply for one at least 6 weeks before your holiday. The UK Passport Service has to confirm your identity before issuing your first passport and will ask you to attend an interview in order to do this. Full details are available by either telephoning the Passport Office on 0300 222 0000 or visiting their website www.gov.uk/browse/abroad If you are not a British citizen or hold a non British passport, you must check passport and visa requirements

Please also check the validity of your passport, as some countries require passports to be valid for a certain length of time, which may be up to 6 months, after the end of your holiday arrangements.

If you are unsure, please contact the appropriate embassy or consulate of the country you are travelling to. It is the party leader’s responsibility to ensure that all members of the party are in possession of all travel and other documents necessary for your holiday. We cannot be held responsible if guests are prevented from travelling, entering any country or re-entering the UK due to the lack of passports or visas which meet the applicable requirements. The Foreign Office publishes regularly updated travel information on its website www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice which you are recommended to consult before booking and in good time before departure. This includes information on passport and visa requirements.

Health

It is your responsibility to ensure you are aware of all recommended vaccinations and health precautions in good time before departure. Details are available from your GP surgery or local travel clinic and from

the National Travel Health Network and Centre www.nathnac.net Information on health abroad is also available on www.nhs.uk/Livewell/ Travelhealth You should ensure that vaccinations or preventative measures such as Malaria tablets are taken early enough (which may be a month or more prior to departure). At the time of publishing this brochure, no vaccinations were required for visiting any of the Mediterranean countries featured in this brochure. For holidays in the EU/EEA you should obtain an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) prior to departure from www.ehic.org.uk The EHIC may entitle you to reduced cost, sometimes free, medical treatment in public hospitals and clinics while you’re in a European Economic Area, although restrictions apply. It must be noted however that the EHIC is not a substitute for travel insurance which must be taken out before departure. If you are undergoing any form of medical treatment, we recommend that you consult your GP in good time prior to departure and ensure that you take sufficient medication and corresponding prescriptions with you where necessary. In some countries the services and drugs provided may be of a different standard to that received in the UK. Please remember to pack any vital medication in your hand luggage. Health requirements and recommendations may change and you should check the up to date position in good time before departure. For further travel information details please telephone our Flight Operations Department on 020 7361 8900.

For all bookings we will then give you a reference number for you to quote on all correspondence/calls. Online bookings cannot be made less than 72 hours before departure.

Booking via your Travel Agent Call in and see or telephone your local authorised travel agent who will check availability and make the booking on your behalf. At the time of booking, you will be required to give your travel agent your credit/debit card details or other acceptable form of payment for the deposit(s) (or full balance if booking within 12 weeks of the start of your holiday). They must then send us the deposit(s)/full payment. Please note that bookings made direct with us may not subsequently be transferred to a travel agent.

Payments Deposit payments are £175 per person (excluding infants for whom no deposit is payable). We regret we cannot accept passengers under the age of 18 unless accompanied by an adult.

whole cost of the holiday at time of booking. Please note: If booking direct with us, deposit payments must be made by either credit or debit card at the time of booking. Balance payments can be made by electronic bank transfer, debit/credit card or cheque. We cannot accept personal cheques received less than 21 days before the start of your holiday even where you book through a travel agent. We will send you/your travel agent as applicable a confirmation invoice as soon as practically possible after receiving all appropriate payments.

Your Contract Please read carefully our booking conditions on pages 92 – 95 of our brochure and on our website at www.markwarner.co.uk By asking us to confirm your booking, you are liable to be regarded as having had the opportunity to do so. The booking conditions together with the information contained in this How To Book section and our Travel Information found on pages 88 – 89 of our brochure and on our website at www.markwarner.co.uk form the basis of our contract with you. A binding contract between us comes into existence when 1) we or your travel agent have received all appropriate payments at the time of booking and 2) we have verbally confirmed the booking to you or your travel agent over the telephone or, in the case of online bookings, we have despatched our confirmation invoice to you. Please note: All bookings are subject to availability.

Prices and brochure accuracy Changes and errors Prices in the brochure per adult are based on 2 people sharing a standard room for 7 nights. They are a guide only and the holiday price will be confirmed at the time of booking. All prices are subject to availability and may change at any time. Please note that holiday information and prices shown in our brochure and on our website may have changed by the time you come to book your holiday. Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the brochure, website and prices at the time of publication,

Discover more at markwarner.co.uk

regrettably errors do occasionally occur. We reserve the right to make changes to and correct errors in advertised prices at any time before your holiday is confirmed. We will advise you of any error of which we are aware and of the then applicable price at the time of booking. Your chosen holiday arrangements (including the price) will be confirmed on your invoice. Please note that bookings made prior to publication of the relevant brochure may be subject to significant changes upon confirmation of the programme and publication of the brochure. Please read clause 5 of our booking conditions for more details. During the season it may be necessary on certain dates to purchase extra flights and/or coach capacity. This may result in an increase in costs as we cannot always negotiate the same favourable seasonal rates. We will, however, only pass on such increased costs to you where your booking has not been confirmed. All such extra costs will be advised to you at the time of booking. For price increases after booking, please see clause 3 of our booking conditions – Prices and surcharges.

Final Payment Please send the final payment so that we receive it no later than 12 weeks before the start of your holiday. This date will be clearly indicated on your invoice and failure to pay by this date may mean that your holiday will be cancelled and cancellation charges will apply – see clause 1 of our booking conditions.

Altered Bookings All amendments to bookings must first be requested by telephone to the After Sales Department on 033 3305 7121 (and confirmed in writing if requested by them) or by email (if you have booked direct with us) to administration@markwarner.co.uk or if you have booked through one of our authorised travel agents, through the agent. We will endeavour to assist if we can. Once we have issued the confirmation invoice, there will be a charge of £35 per person per occasion a change is made (if the change can be made) except as set out below. Amendment may result in the recalculation of the holiday price and the loss of previously applicable discounts or other special offers if the

amendment means the conditions applicable to the previous calculation or a discount or other offer are no longer met (for example, because the number travelling has fallen below the minimum required) or the basis on which the price was calculated has changed (for example, because only one person is occupying a twin or double room). Changes made within 12 weeks of departure and any change of holiday dates will be treated as a cancellation of the original arrangements by you and cancellation charges will apply, please see clauses 4 and 5 in our booking conditions for further details (note that these cancellation charges apply to all pre-booked elements of your holiday). However, if the change is to increase the number of persons booked (without any other change), no amendment fee or cancellation charges will be payable (although you will of course have to pay any increase in the total holiday cost). Subject to meeting the conditions set out in clause 4 of our booking conditions, no amendment fee or cancellation charges will apply for a name change where the holiday arrangements otherwise remain exactly as originally booked unless flight tickets have been issued. In this case, an amendment fee of £35 per name change will be payable if on charter flights. For scheduled flights, the airline may treat any change (including a name change) made after tickets have been issued as a cancellation of the original booking and impose 100% cancellation charges. Accordingly, you may have to pay the full cost of the flight(s) in question again as well as the amendment fee of £35 per person affected.

Travel Details and Tickets Your e-tickets will be sent to you approximately 7 – 10 days before the start of your holiday. For e-ticketed flights we must have an up to date email address for your booking. Please carefully check your documents upon receipt as flight timings can sometimes change from those published at time of booking, on our website or detailed on your confirmation invoice.

Flight Inclusive Holidays All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays in this brochure and on our website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay, you will


be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that the holiday you have booked is described on it. Please see our booking conditions for further information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate

Advance Passenger Information System (APIS) For security reasons, most European and many other countries now require airlines to provide information about their passengers before they fly. This is known as Advance Passenger Information or API and includes full names, dates of birth, nationality, gender and passport details of all passengers but other details may also be required. The airlines set their own deadlines for receipt of this information which may be well in advance of departure. If it is not provided when required, you may be refused boarding on your flight. In this situation, full cancellation charges will apply. Accordingly, you must provide us with all information we ask you for when we ask for it. Where you make your own flight arrangements, you are responsible for providing API to the airline, if booking direct, or to your travel agent, when requested to do so. If, as a result of failure to provide information when required or the provision of inaccurate or incomplete details, you are unable to take your holiday, cancellation charges will apply as set out in our Booking Conditions.

Data Protection For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, Mark Warner Ltd is a data controller. In order to process your booking, we need to collect certain personal details from you. These details will include, where applicable, the names

and addresses of party members, credit/ debit card or other payment details and special requirements such as those relating to any disability or medical condition which may affect the chosen holiday arrangements and any dietary restrictions which may disclose your religious beliefs (“sensitive personal data”). All references in this section to personal data include sensitive personal data unless otherwise stated. We need to pass on your personal data to the companies and organisations who need to know it (for example your airline, hotel, other supplier, credit/debit card or insurance company or bank) so that your holiday or other services you have requested can be provided to you. The information may also be provided to government/public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. On occasions, we may use other companies to provide services on our behalf, such as mailing brochures and marketing material. We only provide third parties with the personal data they require in order to deliver their services. Other than in relation to government/public authorities (over whom we have no control), we will take appropriate steps which are intended to ensure that anyone to whom we pass your personal data for any reason agrees to keep it secure and only uses it for the purposes of providing their services. If we cannot pass personal data to the relevant suppliers or any other third party as applicable, whether in the EEA or not, we will be unable to fulfil your booking. In making your booking, you consent to personal data being passed on to the relevant suppliers and other third parties. Your personal data may be stored, used and otherwise processed within the UK and/or any other country(ies) of the European Economic Area (EEA). EEA countries are all member states of the

European Union together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. We may also store, use or otherwise process personal data outside the EEA. Data protection laws may not be as strong outside the EEA as they are in the EEA. Personal data will not be transferred to a country outside the EEA unless (1) the country to which it is transferred is one which the European Commission consider to provide an adequate level of data protection or (2) the personal data is transferred to a United States company which has signed up to the Safe Harbour scheme or (3) the personal data is transferred to a company which is required by our contract with them only to deal with the data in accordance with our instructions and to maintain appropriate security to protect the personal data which we are satisfied they have or (4) we are obliged to provide the personal data to a government/public authority in order to provide your holiday. We would also like to store and use your personal details for future marketing purposes (for example, sending you a brochure or details of a promotion). All details you give us in connection with your booking (including those relating to any disability or medical condition or your religious beliefs) will be kept but we will use only names and contact details for marketing purposes. If you do not want us to do any or all of these things, please let us know as soon as possible. We are entitled to assume you do not object to our doing any of the things mentioned in this statement unless you tell us otherwise in writing. You may opt out of marketing communications at any time by e-mailing marketing@markwarner.co.uk Except where permitted by the Data Protection Act, we will only deal with the personal details you give us as set out above unless you agree otherwise. We take appropriate technical and organisational measures which are

intended to prevent unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data. You are generally entitled to ask us (by letter or e-mail) what details of yours are being held or processed, for what purpose and to whom they may be or have been disclosed. We will charge a fee to respond to such a request. We promise to respond to your request within 40 days of receiving your written request and fee. In certain limited circumstances we are entitled to refuse your request. If you believe that any of your personal details which we are processing are inaccurate or incorrect please contact us immediately.

fuel, scheduled airfares and any other airline surcharges which are part of the contract between airlines (and their agents) and the tour operator) and/or in any dues, taxes or fees payable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports or airports and/or where our costs increase or decrease as a result of any changes in the exchange rates which have been used to calculate the cost of your holiday. Even in the above cases, only if the increase in our costs exceeds 2% of the total cost of your holiday (excluding any amendment charges) will we levy a surcharge. We will only levy a surcharge in respect of the amount by which any increase in our costs exceeds 2% of this total holiday cost. If any surcharge is greater than 10% of the cost of your holiday (excluding any amendment charges), you will be entitled to cancel your booking and receive a full refund of all monies paid to us (except for amendment charges) or alternatively purchase another holiday from us of a similar standard as originally booked if available (if the alternative we specifically offer you is less expensive, you will receive a refund or price reduction, but if it is more expensive, you will not be asked to pay any more. If you wish to purchase a holiday other than the one we specifically offer you, you will have to pay the applicable price). A refund will only be payable if the decrease in our costs exceeds 2% as set out above. Where a refund is due, we will pay you the full amount of the decrease in our costs. Please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on the price of your travel due to contractual and other protection in place. You have 14 days from the issue date printed on the surcharge invoice to tell us in writing if you want to cancel or purchase another holiday where applicable. If you do not tell us that you wish to do so within this period of time, we are entitled to assume that you will pay the surcharge. Any surcharge must be paid with the balance of the cost of the holiday or within 14 days of the issue date printed on the surcharge invoice, whichever is the later. We promise not to levy a surcharge within 30 days of departure. No refund will be paid during this period either. Please note, changes and errors occasionally occur. You must check the price of your chosen holiday at the time of booking. 4. Amendments by the client All amendments to bookings must be requested by telephone to the After Sales Department on 0333 305 7121 (and confirmed in writing if requested by the After Sales Department) or by e-mail to administration@markwarner. co.uk or if you have booked through one of our authorised travel agents, through the agent.

(c) Everyone who goes on holiday in place of anyone who was originally due to travel must agree to these Booking Conditions and any other requirements which apply to the holiday before the change can be finalised.

Changes made within 12 weeks of departure and any change of holiday dates will be treated as a cancellation of the original arrangements by you and cancellation charges will apply as shown in clause 5. However, if the change is to increase the number of persons booked (without any other change) no amendment fee or cancellation charges will apply (although you will of course have to pay any increase in the total holiday cost). Subject to your meeting the conditions set out in clause 5, no amendment fee or cancellation charges will apply for a name change where the holiday arrangements otherwise remain exactly as originally booked unless flight tickets have been issued. In this case, a £35 per person amendment fee is payable. In addition, scheduled airlines may treat any change (including a name change) made to a scheduled flight after tickets have been issued as a cancellation of the original booking and impose 100% cancellation charges. In order to make such a change in this situation, the full cost of the flight(s) affected must be paid again, in addition to the amendment fee of £35 per person. Please also see clause 5 below.

Cancellation charges for holidays which include scheduled flights and/or pre-bookable extras may incur additional cancellation costs. Check with our After Sales department. Details are available on request at the time of booking. Written confirmation of your cancellation will be issued within 14 days of our receiving your written cancellation notification.

departure, we are unable to provide a significant proportion of the services we had agreed to provide as part of our contract with you, we will do our best to make suitable alternative arrangements in respect of those services. If we cannot do so or you refuse to accept these for good reasons, we will arrange to fly you back to your UK departure airport (if your holiday includes flights) or to transport you to the point our contracted services commenced (if elsewhere than your hotel) as soon as we reasonably can. Except as set out above, you will in addition be entitled to compensation where appropriate. 7. Denied Boarding Regulations If your flight is cancelled or delayed, your flight ticket is downgraded or boarding is denied, depending on the circumstances, the airline may be required to pay you compensation, refund the cost of your flight and/or provide you with accommodation and/or refreshments under EC Regulation 261/2004- the Denied Boarding Regulations 2004. Where applicable, you must pursue the airline for the compensation or other payment due to you. All sums you receive or are entitled to receive from the airline concerned by virtue of these Regulations represent the full amount of your entitlement to compensation or any other payment arising from such cancellation, delay, downgrading or denied boarding. This includes any disappointment, distress, inconvenience or effect on any other arrangements. The fact a delay may entitle you to cancel your flight does not automatically entitle you to cancel any other arrangements even where those arrangements have been made in conjunction with your flight. We have no liability to make any payment to you in relation to the Denied Boarding Regulations or in respect of any flight cancellation or delay, downgrading of any flight ticket or denial of any boarding as the full amount of your entitlement to any compensation or other payment (as dealt with above) is covered by the airline’s obligations under the Denied Boarding Regulations. If for any reason, we make any payment to you or a third party which the airline is responsible for in accordance with the Denied Boarding Regulations, you must, when requested, assign to us the rights you have or had to claim the payment in question from the airline. If your airline does not comply with these rules you may use the CAA Passenger Advice and Complaints service. See www.caa.co.uk – Resolving Travel Problems, for further details. 8. Force Majeure

Very rarely, we may be forced to change or terminate your holiday after departure but before the scheduled end of your time away as a result of ‘force majeure’ (see clause 8). In this very unusual situation, we regret we cannot make any refunds (except where these are obtained from suppliers) or pay any compensation or be responsible for any costs or expenses incurred by you as a result. If, after

In these Booking Conditions ‘force majeure’ means any event which we or the supplier of the service(s) in question could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events are

deficient as a result of the failure of ourselves, our employees, agents or suppliers to use reasonable skill and care in making, performing or providing, as applicable, your contracted holiday arrangements. Please note it is your responsibility to show that reasonable skill and care has not been used if you wish to make a claim against us. In addition, we will only be responsible for what our employees, agents and suppliers do or do not do if they were at the time acting within the course of their employment (for employees) or carrying out work we had asked them to do (for agents and suppliers). (2) We will not be responsible for any injury, illness, death, loss (for example loss of possessions or loss of enjoyment), damage, expense, cost or other sum or claim of any nature or description whatsoever which results from any of the following:- the act(s) and/or omission(s) of the person(s) affected or any member(s) of their party or - the act(s) and/or omission(s) of a third party not connected with the provision of your holiday and which were unforeseeable or unavoidable or - ‘force majeure’ as defined in clause 8 above (3) Please note, we cannot accept responsibility for any services which do not form part of our contract. This includes, for example, any additional services or facilities which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide for you where the services or facilities are not advertised on our website or in our brochure as forming part of your holiday arrangements and we have not agreed to arrange them as part of our contract and any activity or excursion you purchase in resort. Please also see clause 14 “Website and brochure information and outside activities”. In addition, regardless of any wording used by us on our website, in any of our brochures or elsewhere, we only promise to use reasonable skill and care as set out above and we do not have any greater or different liability to you. (4) The promises we make to you about the services we have agreed to provide or arrange as part of our contract - and the laws and applicable standards of the country in which your claim or complaint occurred - will be used as the basis for deciding whether the services in question had been properly provided. If the particular services which gave rise to the claim or complaint were provided in compliance with the applicable local laws and standards, the services will be treated as having been properly provided. This will be the case even if the services did not comply with the laws and standards of the UK which would have applied had those services been provided in the UK. The exception to this is where the claim or complaint concerns the absence of a safety feature which might lead a reasonable holidaymaker to refuse to take the holiday in question. Please note, however, our obligation is to exercise reasonable skill and care as referred to in clause 11(1). We do not make any representation or commitment that all services will comply with applicable local laws and standards and failure to comply does not automatically mean we have not exercised reasonable skill and care. (5) Where we are found liable for loss of and/or damage to any luggage or personal possessions (including money) on any basis, the maximum amount we will have to pay you

is £1000 per person. Any payment is subject to your producing appropriate proof of the contents and value of the luggage or personal possessions concerned and demonstrating that you have taken proper care of your property. For all other claims which do not involve death or personal injury, if we are found liable to you on any basis the maximum amount we will have to pay you is twice the holiday price (excluding any amendment charges) paid by or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total unless a lower limitation applies to your claim under clause 11(6) below. This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong and you have not received any benefit at all from your holiday. (6) Where any claim or part of a claim (including those involving death or personal injury) arises from travel on any aircraft, ship or train (including without limitation the process of getting on and/or off the transport concerned) provided by any air, sea or rail carrier to which any international convention or EU regulation applies where we have arranged that travel as part of our contract, our liability (including the maximum amount of compensation we will have to pay you, the types of claim and the circumstances in which compensation will be payable) will be limited as if we were the carrier in question as referred to in this clause 11(6). The most we will have to pay you for that claim or that part of a claim if we are found liable to you on any basis is the most the carrier concerned would have to pay under the international convention or EU regulation which applies to the travel arrangements in question (for example, the Warsaw Convention as amended or unamended and the Montreal Convention for international travel by air and/or for airlines with an operating licence granted by an EU country, the EC Regulation on Air Carrier Liability No 889/2002 for national and international travel by air, EC Regulation 392/2009 on the liability of carriers of passengers by sea in the event of accidents and COTIF, the Convention on International Travel by Rail). Where a carrier would not be obliged to make any payment to you under the applicable international convention or EU regulation (including where any claim is not notified and issued in accordance with the time limits stipulated in the applicable convention or regulation), we similarly are not obliged to make a payment to you for that claim or part of the claim. When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the carrier for the complaint or claim in question. Copies of the applicable international conventions and EU regulations are available from us on request. Please also note that strict time limits apply for notifying loss, damage or delay of luggage to the airline. Any proceedings in respect of any claim (including one for personal injury or death) must be brought within 2 years of the date stipulated in the applicable convention or regulation. (7) We cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss, expense or other sum(s) of any description which (1) on the basis of the information given to us by you concerning your booking prior to our accepting it, we could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur if we breached our contract with you or (2) did not


result from any breach of contract or other fault by ourselves or our employees or, where we are responsible for them, our suppliers. Additionally we cannot accept liability for any claims, losses or expenses which relate to any business (including any loss of earnings incurred by any client who is self employed). 12. Airlines and other carriers When you travel with any carrier, the conditions of carriage of that carrier will apply, some of which will limit or exclude their liability to you often in accordance with the applicable international convention or EU regulation (for examples, see clause 11(6)). Copies of the conditions of carriage are available from the carrier or ourselves. Our website and brochure are our responsibility. Please note, for a child not to be allocated their own seat on an aircraft they must be under 2 years of age on the date of their return flight. 13. Insurance You must have travel insurance which provides cover that is suitable and adequate for your specific requirements. We will not be responsible for meeting any sums which would have been covered by such travel insurance. You will further be responsible for paying to and indemnifying us for any such sums which we meet on your behalf. Please read your policy details carefully and take them on holiday with you. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is adequate for your particular needs. Please note most travel insurance policies do not cover activities which the insurers consider to be hazardous. If you intend to take part in any such activities, you must obtain appropriate specialist insurance cover. We do not check insurance policies. We do however act as an Introducer Appointed Representative for Citybond Suretravel who may be able to provide you with suitable travel insurance. Please see our brochure/website for further details. 14. Website and brochure information and outside activities (a) The information contained on our website and in our brochure is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of publication. Our website and brochure descriptions often refer to other activities and excursions which are available outside the hotel and are bookable directly with the operator/centre concerned. These activities and excursions are not run or controlled in any way by Mark Warner. They do not form any part of your contract with Mark Warner and are not recommended or endorsed by Mark Warner even where we suggest particular operators/centres or other third parties and/or assist you in booking such activities or excursions in any way. Accordingly, we regret Mark Warner cannot accept any liability in relation to these outside activities and excursions and clauses 6 and 11(1) of our Booking Conditions will not apply to them. We do not however exclude liability for the negligence of ourselves or our employees (providing they were at the time acting within the course of their employment with us) resulting in your death or personal injury. (b) Where we or your hotel make or take any booking for or from you in respect of any

activity or excursion available outside the hotel, we or the hotel, as applicable, do so solely as booking agent. This is the case regardless of whether the activity or excursion is advertised or mentioned in our brochure, in resort, on our website or elsewhere. Your contract for any such activity or excursion will be with the supplier or operator of that activity or excursion. Mark Warner has no liability for any such activity or excursion or for any act(s) or omission(s) of the supplier or operator or for any of its/their employees or agents or any other person(s) connected with the activity or excursion. If we or the hotel are found liable in any respect for any such activity or excursion (for example in our capacity as booking agent), that liability is limited to the cost of the particular activity or excursion concerned. We do not limit or exclude our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence or that of our employees (providing they were at the time acting within the course of their employment with us). (c) Where your hotel makes or takes a booking for or from you in respect of an activity, facility or service provided by the hotel but which is not advertised in our brochure or on our website as forming part of your holiday arrangements and we have not taken any payment from you for this activity, facility or service, your contract for that activity, facility or service is directly with the hotel and not Mark Warner. This contract will be subject to the hotel’s own terms and conditions. Mark Warner has no liability for any such activity, facility or service or for any act(s) or omission(s) of the hotel or any of its employees or agents or any other person(s) connected with the activity, service or facility. If however Mark Warner is found liable in any respect for any such activity, facility or service, that liability is limited to the price you paid for the particular activity, facility or service concerned. We do not limit or exclude our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence or that of our employees (providing they were at the time acting within the course of their employment with us). (d) We cannot guarantee accuracy at all times of information given in relation to any activities and excursions or about the resorts generally (except where this concerns the services which will form part of your contract) or that any particular excursion or activity will take place or be available as these services are not under our control.
