1. YOUR CONTRACT
A 'booking' means any order for products or services you make on our Site which is accepted by us. Acceptance will be made by the agent (and a contract concluded) when we have received full payment from you and sent a confirmation email (from either the agent or the relevant Travel Supplier).
When you make a Flight + Hotel booking, your contract is with German Travel Centre limited (ATOL 2977). 
THE AGENT STRONGLY RECOMMENDS THAT YOU TAKE OUT INSURANCE FOR ANY HOLIDAY, ESPECIALLY AS THERE MAY BE CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE NEITHER German Travel Centre Ltd NOR THE TRAVEL SUPPLIER CAN ACCEPT LIABILITY (EG DELAYS OR CANCELLATIONS BEYOND OUR CONTROL).
Travel Suppliers
Except for the sale of Flight + Hotel package holidays, the agent acts as disclosed Agent for third party suppliers and for the purposes of these terms and conditions tour operators, package holiday supplier, hotels, hotel chains and hotel aggregators, insurance and car suppliers, plus all airlines, shall be included in the term 'Travel Supplier'. When you make a booking via the Site, and your preferred travel product or service is available, the contract will be between the Travel Supplier and you. The agent is not a party to the contractual relationship. Any queries or concerns relating to the product should be addressed to the Travel Supplier. You will see the contact details for most suppliers in the confirmation e-mail we or the Travel Supplier send you. 
The agent does not assume any responsibility for the travel products and services provided by the Travel Supplier and makes no representations or warranties (express or implied) about the suitability or quality of travel products and services featured on the Site.

Travel Supplier Conditions
The following applies to all products or services booked via our offices:
The Travel Supplier's terms and conditions (including airlines' fare rules) will apply in addition to those set out here. The Travel Supplier's terms and conditions may include provisions relating to payment procedures, default, liability, cancellations, changes of bookings and refunds (if available) and any other restrictions. Consequently, as you move through the Site you will may see linksks to terms applying to specific Travel Supplier products (you are advised to read those terms carefully) - however, please refer to your particular Travel Supplier for full details as to the applicable terms and conditions.
You are responsible for complying with any airline or other Travel Supplier conditions in relation to check-in times, reconfirmation of flights, or other matters.
Flights
Please note that in relation to air fares there are additional terms specific to that fare. For example, tickets are normally non-changeable and non-refundable non- endorsable. The majority of airlines reserve the right to make schedule changes and cancel confirmed bookings. While the agent, as Agent, is not responsible for such schedule changes or cancellations, we will provide you with any reasonable assistance you require via our customer services.
The recommended minimum check-in time for international flights is 120 minutes prior to departure and for domestic flights, 90 minutes before departure. Some airlines require you to reconfirm your return flight booking at least 72 hours before travel. Failure to reconfirm your flight booking directly with the airline may result in cancellation.
Flights must be used in the order set out in your itinerary - eg a failure to use the outbound flight or first stage of a journey could invalidate the rest of the ticket.
We strongly recommend (particularly if you are flying Economy class), that you check in early if you have particular seat requests. The agent has no control over the allocation of seats, even if pre-booked with the airline, and can make no guarantee that specific seats will be available on departure.
The agent is not responsible for the costs of any transfers between airports or terminals that you may incur.
Flights priced at special fares or best prices may not take the most direct route. Some itineraries require a change of aircraft en-route. A flight that is described as direct is one where there is no need to change aircraft during the journey. However, stops may be made en-route for re-fuelling or to let passengers on and/or off. Details of any stops will be given upon request.
The times given are given on the 24 hour clock system, approximate and based on outbound flights. They may vary depending on flight schedules, type of aircraft, weather conditions etc., and are indications of the hours spent actually flying (excluding time on the ground during stops en-route or when changing aircraft) and are therefore given for guidance only and are subject to alteration and confirmation.
Regulations vary with each airline, but some will refuse to carry women who will be 28 weeks or more pregnant on the date of return travel. If in doubt, please check with the airline concerned and consult your doctor. Infants must be 6 weeks old or more to travel by air and must either sit on an adult's lap or occupy an infant seat. Please contact the airline you are travelling with for details of appropriate seats. Generally children aged 2 years or more must occupy a seat.
In the event that you make any alteration to your flight booking (including, but not limited to, cancellations, refunds, amendments and name changes), the agent reserves the right to charge you an administration fee which you will be notified of to cover the administration costs incurred by German Travel Centre Ltd, These charges do not include any charges imposed directly by the Travel Supplier or any difference in the fare as advised by the airline at the time of making the change. Credit card fees and booking fees are non-refundable in the event of cancellation.

One-way combinables
In certain cases, in order to provide special return fares, we combine two one-way fares on different airlines. This means that you will have two separate bookings (one for your outbound flight and one for your inbound flight) and each booking will have its own fare rules. If you need to cancel one of the flights, you could keep the other without incurring any additional charges. However, if you miss the outbound flight, the inbound flight would not be cancelled by the other airline. Any cancellations, schedule changes or other modifications to one of the flights will not affect the other flight, and the fare rules of the other flight will still apply. For example if one of the flights is cancelled, the other airline has no obligation to refund the other leg of your journey or offer you an itinerary change. You may incur costs for any changes to the other flight if necessary.
Airports and may charge for additional services such as checked baggage, airport check-in, preferred seating, in-flight entertainment.
Hotels and other Accommodation
We offer star ratings as a general guide. You should be aware that these are not necessarily the official local rating and that standards can vary between hotels and accommodation of the same class in different countries, and even in the same country. Different countries have different standards; a 3 star hotel in one country is not necessarily equivalent to a 3 star hotel in another.
Check-in / Checkout times - Generally guests can check into a hotel or other accommodation around 3pm and check out at 11am, local time. However, local variances may apply. Should you require more precise timings, please contact the hotel.
Images - Whilst we endeavour to ensure that property images and descriptions of amenities and facilities displayed on the agent are an accurate and up to date representation of the properties, we cannot guarantee this always to be the case as we obtain this information from our Travel Suppliers. The images and information are provided to give a general 'feel' for the hotel.
Images of room types do not necessarily represent the bed configuration of the room being purchased. For example, a triple room in USA may consist of one double bed and one single bed or a double room in Germany may consist of two single beds. Also, there may be an additional charge for extra beds or cots. Please contact the hotel directly to confirm the exact bed configuration before purchase if required.
Breakfast is not included unless otherwise stated. Some hotels may charge additional local taxes.

Car rental
All drivers must display a full valid driving licence at time of pick up. Licence must have been valid for at least 12 months and both paper and photo licences must be presented. You may also be asked to present a credit card. Failure to meet any of these requirements will invalidate your car rental. Customers renting a vehicle for pick up in any country outside the European Union (EU) must be an EU resident and must present a full, valid GB or EC/EEA licence. All bookings are non changeable/ non- cancellable/ non refundable. 

General
As part of the booking process for flight tickets or hotels you are given the option to enter the details of any relevant frequent flyer or hotel loyalty programme of which you are a member. Please note that any such frequent flyer or hotel loyalty programme is subject to the terms and conditions of the airline or hotel through which it is offered. Those terms and conditions may not give rewards on all types of fare and class of service. Please contact the airline or hotel in charge of your frequent flyer or hotel loyalty programme if you are unsure of its terms and conditions. Please note that our Travel Suppliers have their own rules and regulations with regard to loyalty cards. If you have any questions, please contact them directly.
In relation to the 'special requests' options relating to any product (e.g. meals, disabled facilities, child seats etc.), The agent does not guarantee any such requests but will pass these requests on to the Travel Supplier/hotel. It is your responsibility to confirm with the Travel Supplier or hotel whether such special requests can be fulfilled.

2. DELIVERY OF YOUR BOOKING
The following applies to all products or services booked via our Site:
E-tickets
All tickets sold on the agent are e-tickets. E-ticketing is a 'paper-less' way to book flights. Once you've made your booking, it's stored electronically in the airline reservation system. The agent will send you a confirmation email of a confirmation by post with your booking reference number, which serves as a receipt for your e-ticket. You may NOT receive a physical 'e-ticket' or paper tickets to present at the airport. We recommend that you take a printout of your confirmation email with you, although many airlines won't ask to see this. Please note that airlines have their own rules and regulations with regard to e-ticketing. The agent cannot be held responsible for non-compliance with these rules and regulations and strongly recommends that you check these details with your airline in advance of travel.
The agent relies on the information that you provide as being accurate and therefore cannot be held responsible if your e-ticket does not arrive due to an incorrect email address or your junk email settings. You must notify us immediately if you change your email address or contact telephone number. In addition, please check that the name on your passport matches the name on your ticket and/or booking confirmation.
In exceptional circumstances, due to ticketing restrictions outside its control, the agent may not be able to pass information about confirmed bookings to the airline to enable them to fulfil the booking. If this occurs we will attempt to notify you within 48 hours of confirmation and organise a refund or arrange an alternative. Where you choose an alternative and it is more expensive than your original booking, you may be responsible for paying the difference.
Please note that you may be required to produce your booking number and/or confirmation email to the relevant Travel Supplier as evidence of your booking.

3. CANCELLATIONS OR MODIFICATIONS BY YOU TO YOUR BOOKING
The following applies to all products or services booked through the agent:
Your ability to cancel or modify a booked travel product or service, and the method for doing so, will depend on the specific Travel Supplier's or hotel's terms and conditions. It therefore may not be possible to cancel or modify some products or services, or there may be specific requirements you will have to meet. Please note that for itineraries built up of different routings and more than one fare base, there maybe more than one set of fare rules. In this instance, the most restrictive fare rules will apply. You should read all fare rules pertaining to your reservation.
For flight bookings, hotels, car rental and insurance, you may be able to cancel or modify your booking by telephoning the agent call centre on 0208 429 2900 . 
In the event that you make any alteration to your booking (including, but not limited to, cancellations, refunds, amendments and name changes), The agent reserves the right to charge you an administration fee to cover the administration costs incurred by the agent these charges do not include any charges imposed directly by the Travel Supplier or hotel, including any difference in fare/room rate/rental rate.
In some circumstances, the agent or the Travel Supplier may be unable to cancel or modify a travel product or service unless we receive a written request together with payment of any extra fees and associated charges. Please note that, in relation to flights, a 'no-show' for a flight may result in your ticket being cancelled by the airline and therefore not refundable. Consequently, if you desire to change a flight booking close to the departure time, we strongly recommend that you phone the agent and obtain written email confirmation to that change before electing not to travel on the original flight. For car rental, if you fail to cancel your reservation prior to the pick-up time and do not collect the vehicle on the pick-up date, or of you fail to comply with the pick-up terms, the agent reserves the right to make a 'no-show' charge of 100% of the total car rental booking value.
In some cases when you are unable to take your flight and the ticket is non-refundable, you may be eligible to claim some or all of the taxes charged at the time of purchase. If you wish to make a claim for any taxes that may be refundable please do so in writing to the following address: Tax Refunds, German Travel Centre Ltd, Bridge Street, Pinner, Middlex, HA5 3HZ . Please note that refunds can only be processed to the form of payment used at the time of booking and that all refunds are subject to the relevant airline's policy and an Administration Charge.

4. TERMS AND CONDITIONS RELATING EXCLUSIVELY TO FLIGHT + HOTEL PACKAGES

"Your Financial Protection
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, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL Certificate, will provide you with the
services listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative). In some cases,
where neither we nor the supplier are 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, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL certificate, 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.” 

The agent reserves the right to make changes to your Flight + Hotel Package where such changes are occasioned by one of its Travel Suppliers, for instance an airline cancelling a flight. We will notify you as soon as we can, if there is time before your departure. Your confirmation will show you the planned timings as of the date of the confirmation.
Changes to or Cancellation of your Flight + Hotel Package by you
If you wish to change or cancel your Flight + Hotel booking then please call the  The agent customer Services on 0208 429 2900. We will endeavour to amend or cancel your booking as far as possible. However, many flights and hotels used in Flight + Hotel bookings are non changeable and non refundable, and therefore any change to a flight or hotel may require the purchase of a new flight or hotel booking. You will be liable for all associated costs of a new booking . WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU TAKE OUT APPROPRIATE INSURANCE TO COVER YOU FOR SITUATIONS WHICH MAY REQUIRE YOU TO CANCEL OR CHANGE YOUR TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS.
In the event that you make any alteration to your booking (including, but not limited to, cancellations, refunds, amendments and name changes), the agent reserves the right to charge you an administration fee to cover the administration costs incurred by the agent you will also be liable for any charges imposed directly by the Travel Supplier.
Changes to or Cancellation of your Flight + Hotel Package by the agent.

If you are notified of any Major Changes to your Flight + Hotel Package after we have confirmed your booking but before you travel, you can either accept these new arrangements (and recover any difference in price), buy another Flight +Hotel package (and cover any additional increase in price from your original booking) or cancel your Flight + Hotel Package and receive a full refund from the agent.
Major Changes shall include: a change in your departure or arrival flight by more than 12 hours; a change in the length of your holiday; or a change in the airport you depart or arrive from (except where the airports are in the same cities), a change of accommodation to a lower standard or to a different resort.
Unless the change is due to events beyond our control or that of our suppliers, as described below, we will pay you the following compensation:
Period before departure when a cancellation or Major Change is notified to you by the agent Compensation per adult* where alternative is chosen  Cancellation of your holiday by the agent 60 days or more NIL 100% of holiday
42 - 60 days £10 100% of holiday + £10
28 - 41 days £20 100% of holiday + £20
15 - 27 days £30 100% of holiday + £30
14 days or less £50 100% of holiday + £50
* For children invoiced at reduced rates, compensation will be paid on a pro-rata basis of the adult rate. ^ The departure date is excluded when calculating the relevant period.
The agent will not be liable to you for any compensation if forced to cancel or make any changes to your Flight + Hotel Package as a result of events outside our control and which neither or the agent or its Travel Suppliers could reasonably foresee. Events outside our control include: war; threats of war; government intervention, terrorism; riots; civil unrest; natural and nuclear disasters; fire; actual or potential weather conditions; health risks; industrial disputes; technical problems with transport; closed or congested airports; and any force majeure events.
Where as a result of such an event occurring after your departure a significant part of your Flight + Hotel Package cannot be provided, you will be offered a suitable alternative if available. If a suitable alternative is not available, or for good reasons, you do not accept the offered alternative, we will return you to your place of departure. Again we would strongly recommend that you take out comprehensive insurance to cover such circumstances.

5. PAYMENT
Full payment for all Flight + Hotel bookings, holidays, air, insurance products and car rental is required at the time of booking. 
The agent may be required to pass your card details to the relevant Travel Supplier for fulfilment of the booking. Payment methods other than those stated on the Site will not be accepted and no responsibility is accepted for cash or cheques sent through the post.
Before payment is received in full, The agent or the Travel Supplier is not obliged to issue any tickets, confirmations, vouchers, or other travel documents. However, you shall in all cases remain liable for payment of the amounts agreed for the travel products and services ordered.
Payment can be made by all major debit and credit cards as detailed on the Site. The agent reserves the right to charge you in addition for any handling fees we or the Travel Supplier incur in relation to bookings made by credit card. You will be notified of the relevant charges at the time of booking. The agent reserves the right to pass on any charges relating to card charge backs. If your booking is being paid for with a third party credit card we may require written authorisation to be provided by the card-holder.
The agent or the Travel Supplier reserves the right only to deliver e-tickets, confirmations, e-vouchers or other travel documents to your credit card billing address or e-mail address when requested to do so by the credit card issuer. All e-mails addresses used must be valid at the time of booking.
Further, in an effort to minimise the effects of credit card fraud, we reserve the right to carry out random checks, including checks of the electoral roll, and may request you to either fax or post to us proof of your address and a copy of the credit card and recent statement before issuing any tickets.
Refunds will be processed to the form of payment used at the time of booking. This will be made payable to the person who made the original payment. When processing a refund for a flight ticket, please be aware that not all taxes are refundable. A tax refund will be processed in accordance with the relevant airline's refund policy.
Taxes fluctuate in line with exchange rates.
If you pay by credit card, payment for your flights may be taken directly by the airline. If there are any problems with your payment, we will contact you within 48 hours of your booking (or within 24 hours if you are travelling within 48 hours). German Travel Centre Ltd will not be liable for any subsequent price increase as a result of payment failure. Any price increase must be paid for by you before the booking can be confirmed. Please note that the airline payment and payment to German Travel Centre Ltd for any other products or the agent charges will appear as separate transactions on your credit card statement.

6. PASSPORTS, VISAS AND HEALTH REQUIREMENTS
Please note: Passport and visa regulations can change and you should therefore check with the relevant embassy well in advance of travel. It is your responsibility to be in possession of a valid passport and if appropriate, a visa. It can often take some time to obtain a visa, so you are advised to apply in plenty of time. We accept no responsibility for customers who do not possess the correct documents.
The information in this section is valid for British Citizens only. A valid passport is necessary for travel. Some countries require that your passport is valid for a minimum period after you enter that country, typically 6 months. If your passport is in its final year of validity, we advise you confirm the requirements of the destination before making final travel plans, and arrange to renew your passport if necessary. Further information can be found at the UK Identity & Passport Service website - www.ips.gov.uk.
Children not already included on a valid British passport will need to hold their own passport if they are to travel abroad. Children who were included on a passport before 5 October 1998 may continue to travel with the passport holder until:
• The child reaches the age of 16; or
• The passport on which the child is included expires; or
• The passport on which the child is included is replaced or an amendment results in the issue of a new passport
The name on the passport must match the name on the ticket, otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid. If, after making a booking but before travelling, any member of your party changes their name, e.g. as a result of getting married, we must be notified immediately so that we can try to make the necessary changes to your holiday documentation.
If you are not a British citizen, you should contact your Embassy for information and advice on the visa requirements of the countries you propose to visit.
It is your responsibility to check and comply with any health requirements. We recommend that British Citizens visit the Department of Health's website at www.dh.gov.uk/en/index.htm and search for the destination you are visiting or speak to their GP.

7. OTHER GENERALLY APPLICABLE TERMS
Your rights under EC Regulation 261/2004 if your flight is cancelled, delayed or your are denied boarding

If you have any other enquiries or complaints relating to your booking during your stay, please contact our customer services team on your return and no later than 30 days after it giving your booking reference and all other relevant information.
