In these booking conditions references to "we" and "us" indicate Journey Experts Limited T/A Travelinbusiness (the Company) and 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 added or transferred. Your use of this website is expressly conditioned on your acceptance of the following terms and conditions. If you do not agree with any part of the following terms and conditions, you must not use this site. We act in the following capacities: as a Flight-Plus Arranger, and as an agent to help you to arrange individual flight only, accommodation only or other separate travel arrangements ("Individual Components"). Our obligations to you may vary depending upon which arrangements you book with us, and we have tried to set them out below as clearly as possible. Section A contains the conditions which will apply to all bookings, and Section B applies to agency bookings (including Flight-Plus). We act as agent in the sale of Flight Plus products.


SECTION A - APPLICABLE TO ALL BOOKINGS

Booking Your Travel Arrangements

All services offered are subject to availability. When you make a booking, you confirm that you have the authority to accept, and do accept these conditions on your behalf and on behalf of all members of your party and further, if you are making a booking for more than one person, that you are responsible for all payments due from each and every party member for whom you are making a booking. It is your responsibility to ensure that any information which you give us is accurate and that information which is given to you by us or any of our suppliers is passed on to all members of your party.

When you make your booking you must pay the relevant deposit as specified at the time of booking. No contract will come into existence until we accept your booking and we receive your deposit or full payment in cleared funds and issue you with a confirmation invoice either on behalf of ourselves or the supplier in question. Please ensure that the names given are the same as in the relevant passport.

Bookings made online: If you book online, you must provide us with all information which we require. You must also ensure that the credit or debit card you are using is your own (or, subject to our agreement, if it is a third party's you have their express authorization, to use their credit or debit card) and that sufficient funds are available to cover the cost of the arrangements which you book with us. When we receive and accept your booking we will send you a confirmation e-mail and invoice and debit payment from you. We do not make any representation or warranty as to the availability of any package holiday, flight or Individual Components nor that our booking services are free from infection of viruses or anything else that has a contaminating or destructive effect on your property.


Bookings made by telephone:

If you make a booking by telephone you must provide us with all information which we require. You must also ensure that all information which you provide is accurate and that the credit or debit card you are using is your own or, subject to our agreement, if it is a third party's you have their express authorization to use their credit or debit card and that sufficient funds are available to cover the cost of the arrangements which you book with us. If we accept your booking, we shall debit payment from you and send you a confirmation invoice. From this point cancellation charges will apply: Please note that a telephone booking confirmation is as firmly confirmed as if it were made /confirmed in writing immediately. As soon as you receive the confirmation, please check the details carefully and inform us immediately if anything appears to be incorrect as it may not be possible to make changes later.


Payments

You must pay the balance by the due date shown on the confirmation invoice. Please note for some telephone bookings full payment may be required IMMEDIATELY i.e. before you receive the confirmation invoice. If this applies you will be advised when the booking is made. It is very important that you pay balances when due because failure to do so may lead to the cancellation of your holiday/flights and still leave you liable to pay cancellation charges. Where an extra "booking charge" applies this will have been advised at the time of booking. All credit/charge card payments are subject to a surcharge. All cheque payments require 7 days to clear. Until full payment has been received the price of your booking may increase as a result of fuel or other surcharges which may be imposed by suppliers. Please note we do not accept responsibility for cash sent by courier or post, even if sent by registered or recorded delivery post or any other special delivery.


Any money paid to an authorized agent of ours in respect of a booking covered by our ATOL is held by that agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust at all times, but subject to the agent's obligation to pay it to us for so long as we do not fail financially. If we do fail financially, any money held at that time by the agent or subsequently accepted from the consumer by the agent, is and continues to be held by that agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust without any obligation to pay that money to us.


Data Protection Policy

In order to process your booking and to ensure that your travel arrangements run smoothly and meet your requirements, we need to use the information you provide. Please see our Data Protection and Privacy Policy here for further information.


Passports, Visa and Health Requirements

You are responsible for checking all passport, visa and health requirements and ensuring your travel documents are in order.

Passport and Visa: You must consult the relevant Embassy or Consulate for this information. Requirements may change and you should check the up-to-date position in good time before booking/departure.

You must have a passport which is valid for six months after your intended date of return. You must ensure you have correct visa and health entry requirements for all countries visited including countries you may just be transiting through.

If your passport is in its final year, you should check with the Embassy of the country you are visiting. For further information contact the Passport Office. Special conditions apply for travel to the USA, and all passengers must have individual machine readable passports. Please check www.usembassy.org.uk.

Health requirements for your holiday destination are outlined in the Department of Health leaflet entitled "The Traveller's Guide to Health" (T4), which is available by calling 0800 555 777. It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain the recommended inoculations, take all recommended medication and follow all medical advice in relation to your trip.

You agree to reimburse us in relation to any fines or other losses which we incur as a result of your failure to comply with any passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities.


Special Requests and Medical Problems

If you have any special requests, please advise us at time of booking. Although we will endeavour to pass any such requests on to the relevant supplier, we regret we cannot guarantee any request will be met. Failure to meet any special request will not be a breach of contract on our part. If you have any medical problem or disability which may affect your arrangements, you must advise us in writing before of booking giving full details. Regrettably, many overseas destinations do not have even basic facilities required by disabled travelers. If we feel unable to properly accommodate your particular needs, we must reserve the right to decline/cancel your booking, and charge any applicable cancellation charges.


Behavior

You accept responsibility to ensure that you & the members of your party do not behave in a way which causes offence to others or risks any loss or damage to property belonging to others. Payments for any such damage or loss must be made at the time direct to the accommodation owner or manager or other supplier. You indemnify us against any claims (including legal costs) subsequently made against us as a result of your actions. We expect all clients to have consideration for other people. If in our reasonable opinion or in the opinion of any other persons in authority you are behaving in such a way to cause or to be likely to cause distress, danger or annoyance to any third party or damage to property, we reserve the right to terminate your arrangements without notice. In this situation your total booking with us, including your return transportation arrangements, will immediately cease and we will not be responsible for paying any costs, expenses, refunds or compensation.


Compliance with laws

It is also your responsibility to comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange and the drug regulations of the countries visited. We and/or our representatives reserve the right to cancel your holiday at any time if in our reasonable opinion you are found to be behaving in a socially unacceptable manner or indulging in illegal activities, without any liability to you for any refund and legal claim.


Force Majeure

We will not pay you compensation and will not be held responsible, if we have to cancel or change your travel arrangements in any way because of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control. These can include war or threat of war, civil strife, industrial dispute including air traffic control disputes, terrorist activity and its consequences, natural and nuclear disaster, fire or adverse weather conditions, epidemics & pandemics, unavoidable technical problems with transport, closure or congestion of airports or ports and all similar events outside our or the supplier(s) concerned's control. Advice from the Foreign Office to avoid or leave a particular country may constitute Force Majeure. You can check the current position of any country by telephoning the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's Travel Advice Unit on 0845 850 2829.


Insurance

Adequate travel insurance is a condition of your contract with either us or the supplier in question, as applicable. You may take the holiday insurance offered by us or arrange it independently. The insurance cover must include cancellation charges, unexpected curtailment of your holiday, medical and repatriation expenses including air ambulance, personal accident, delay loss or damage to your personal effects. When arranging insurance from a source other then offered by us, you must provide us with written details of the policy and sign an indemnity form on behalf of yourself and all members of your party absolving us and our overseas agents /representatives, of any liability for any costs that may arise which otherwise would have been met by the insurance claim.


Telephone Calls

We reserve the right to randomly record telephone calls to ensure that our customer service is constantly reviewed.


Claims and Complaints

Where we are acting as agent, the contract for your arrangements is between you and the supplier and any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. If you have a problem whilst on holiday, this must be reported to the supplier or their local supplier or agent immediately. If you fail to follow this procedure there will be less opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint. The amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced or you may not receive any at all depending upon the circumstances. If you wish to complain when you return home, write to the supplier. You will see the name and address plus contact details in any confirmation documents we send you. We will of course assist you with this if you wish - please contact Customer Services. If the matter cannot be resolved and it involves us or another ATOL member then it can be referred to the arbitration scheme arranged by ATOL, details of which are below.


Your Financial Protection

We provide financial security for flight inclusive Packages, Flight Plus bookings and ATOL protected flights through our ATOL License (number 11037) issued by the Civil Aviation Authority.


If you have booked a flight where the ticket is not issued immediately, your flight will be protected under our ATOL. When you buy an ATOL protected flight & flight plus 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. 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.


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 (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.


If you book arrangements the CAA. Other than an ATOL protected flight, package holiday or Flight-Plus from this brochure/website, your monies will not be financially protected. Please ask us for further details.


Conditions of Suppliers

Many of the services which make up your holiday are provided by independent suppliers. Those suppliers provide these services in accordance with their own terms and conditions which will form part of your contract with us or the applicable supplier. Some of these terms and conditions may limit or exclude the supplier's liability to you, usually in accordance with applicable International Conventions. Copies of the relevant parts of these terms and conditions are available on request from ourselves or the supplier concerned.


Jurisdiction

This contract is governed by the English Law, and any dispute arising between the parties is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England. You may, however, choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland.


Flights and Flight Travel Documents

Please note that a flight described in your flight ticket as "direct" will not necessarily be non-stop. All departure/arrival times on your flight ticket are provided by the airlines concerned and are estimates only. They may change due to air traffic control restrictions, weather conditions, operational/maintenance requirements and the requirement for passengers to check in on time.


We are unable to make any special arrangements for you if you are delayed; these matters are at the sole discretion of the airline concerned.


In relation to flights, an infant must be under 2 years of age on the date of their return flight to be entitled to the infant fare level which is usually 10% of IATA's published fare.


Please note that where a sector of a flight itinerary is not utilised without contacting the carrier directly any remaining sectors may be subject to cancellation without further notification. Where this situation arises we are unable to accept responsibility for any costs incurred. In accordance with EU regulations 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 within the EU Community. The Community list is available for inspection at http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air-ban.


We reserve the right to change the airline in the event that the airline is blacklisted under the EU regulations. Any changes to the actual airline after you have received your tickets will be notified to you as soon as possible and in all cases at check-in or at the boarding gate.


Reconfirming all Flights

You must telephone us or the airline at least 72 hours before the departure time shown on your ticket to confirm that there have been no changes. This applies to both outbound and return flights. We will not be liable for any additional costs due to your failure to reconfirm flights. Reconfirming your flight at least 72 hours before departure is a minimum requirement.


Travel Documents Checking and Dispatch

Travel documents will be sent by email. It is your responsibility to check that all travel documents issued are correct. Any inaccuracies must be notified to us immediately. If you do not contact us immediately we cannot accept any liability and any changes may incur additional cost as applicable. The address for sending all documentation will be that given at the time of booking unless requested otherwise. Travel documents will not be sent until we receive the full payment in the cleared funds. Documents will normally be sent 7 days before departure. Sending travel documents by post or fax is subject to company's discretion and will involve additional cost. In the event of travel document lost or delayed in delivery, it will be your responsibility to pay additional expenses incurred by us to arrange and send duplicate travel documents.


Late Bookings

May also require Special/Courier delivery of documents in which case we will tell you the charges at the time of booking.


Special Price Guarantee

For all scheduled flights, if you can get a cheaper flight on the same carrier and departing at the same day and time on the same route within 24 hours of making the booking with us (as time and date on your invoice) we will match the price (written proof required) or if we cannot we will refund your deposit. If you require the ticket within 24 hours the above does not apply. Fares are subject to change without prior notice.


E-Tickets

Some airlines offer only electronic confirmation of your reservation, or 'e-ticketing', on certain routes. If you are travelling on an e-ticket route we can at your request provide you with a paper ticket where permitted. Where you make a request for a paper ticket, an administration fee of £10 per ticket will be levied in addition to any applicable airline charge.Airline Ticket Refunds

Air tickets returned to us for a refund are subject to an administration charge of £50 per ticket, irrespective of the number of tickets returned and you will be required to pay a per ticket cancellation charge imposed by the airline or the consolidator pursuant to their terms and conditions. There is no automatic right to a refund and, when you return an air ticket to us, we will arrange for it to be presented to the respective airline or consolidator to assess eligibility for a possible refund in accordance with the relevant airline's or consolidator's terms and conditions. We recommend that you return such air tickets to us by special delivery post as we do not accept responsibility for documents mislaid or lost by the Royal Mail. If a recoverable air ticket refund is less than the above administration charge, the ticket will be deemed to be fully non-refundable. An administration fee of £50 per ticket will be levied on any non-refundable ticket where a tax refund application is made by us at your request and on your behalf. If the recoverable tax components for your ticket are less than the administration charge the ticket will be deemed to be fully non-refundable. Refunds will not be paid to you until they have been received by us from the relevant airline or consolidator. In the case of airline ticket refunds this is normally 10-12 weeks from the point the tickets are submitted for consideration to the airline.

Scheduled Airline Failure Administration Fee

If you are holding a ticket(s) on an airline which fails due to insolvency and has ceased flying, the money you have paid for your ticket(s) may be lost. As part of the requirements under our ATOL licence issued by the Civil Aviation Authority to protect our customers, we undertake to ensure that, should this happen, our customers receive compensation for their loss to the extent referred to below. In the event of a scheduled airline failure as a result of an insolvent winding-up: prior to commencement of a passenger's trip, all monies paid by the passenger either as a deposit, or as the case may be, as the price for the scheduled airline ticket(s) will be refunded to the passenger in full; or After the passenger's trip has commenced: the sum equivalent to the price paid for the ticket(s) for such scheduled airline flights forming part of the trip as were cancelled as a direct result of the airline failure will be refunded to the passenger in full; or if the trip is curtailed forthwith upon the airline failure, the cost of direct return transportation to the United Kingdom to a similar standard to that originally booked as part of the trip, such return flight commencing at the point of curtailment of the trip as the direct result of the airline failure.

As a fee for our administering both the claims and/or the repatriation of passengers we will charge each customer a nominal administration fee for this service. This fee forms part of the cost of each airline ticket purchased from us and is not optional.

Flight Changes

Should your flight be cancelled your rights and remedies will be governed by the airline's conditions of carriage. As a result you may be entitled to: (a) Carriage on another flight with the same airline without additional costs; (b) Re-routing to your destination with another carrier without additional costs; (c) Receiving a full refund; or (d) Some other right or remedy.

If a schedule change occurs to your itinerary prior to our receipt from you of the full price, or prior to the issue of your tickets (on either the outbound or return flight) we will do our best to notify you on behalf of the carrier.

Should a schedule change occur to your itinerary after full balance/ticket issue, on either the outbound or return flights the relevant supplier's decision will be final and amendment charges may apply. Departure Taxes

It is not always possible to include all departure taxes on your ticket(s). In some cases departure taxes must be paid by you locally to the Government of the country you are departing from and are non-refundable by us.

SECTION B: AGENCY BOOKING AND FLIGHT PLUS ARRANGEMENTS

This section applies to bookings we make for you when acting as agent.

Your contract

If you book Individual Components or a Flight Plus with us, we will make the booking as agent for the relevant supplier(s) (e.g. the airline or hotel supplier) and we will arrange for you to enter into a contract with the applicable supplier. Your contract will be subject to the supplier's own terms and conditions which could limit or exclude liability to you, often in accordance with international conventions. Copies of the supplier's terms and the international conventions are available on request. As an agent we accept no responsibility for the acts or omissions of the supplier or for the services provided by the supplier. You may wish to purchase flights, hotel, car rental, transfer services or other services on our website. Each component will be provided by different third party providers of the products you have selected. Your contract will be with the individual suppliers and not with us. Since you create your own travel arrangements by adding each component separately to create your own bespoke booking, this is not a package and therefore you are not protected under the Package Travel Regulations and unless you book a Flight-Plus, your booking may not benefit from ATOL protection either. Until a component has been confirmed by the individual supplier, no contract has been formed.


Changes By You

Any cancellation or amendment request must be sent to us in writing and will not take effect until received by us. If you cancel or amend your booking the supplier may charge the cancellation or amendment charge shown in their Terms and Conditions (which may be 100% of the cost of the travel arrangements) and you will have to pay an Amendment Fee per person which will be notified at the time of change as well as any applicable cancellation charges.


Cancellation By You

Air Ticket Refund: Many airline tickets are paid for in full at the time of booking and in case of cancellation, unless otherwise stated, they are nonrefundable, non-changeable and non re-routable. In respect of any alteration to an APEX ticket or certain other special fare tickets, some suppliers (particularly airlines) may treat a name change as a cancellation and as such will not refund any monies. Where an outbound portion of your flight coupon is not used the return sector will be automatically cancelled by the airline and no automatic right to a refund exists for such part-used tickets. All other partly used tickets are normally non-refundable and cancellations made within 24 hours of departure are non-refundable.


Other Individual Components: For all other Individual Components, unless your confirmation invoice or the supplier's terms and conditions specifies different cancellation charges, the charges below shall apply:


Prior to Balance being collected: Deposit Only

After Balance has been paid: 100% of the cost of the Individual Component. You will be notified of the exact charges at the time of amendment or cancellation.


Changes or Cancellations by the Supplier

We will inform you of any changes or cancellations as soon as reasonably possible. If the supplier offers alternative arrangements or a refund, you will need to let us know your choice within the time frame we stipulate. If you fail to do so the supplier is entitled to assume you wish to receive a full refund. We accept no liability for any changes or cancellations made to your arrangements by the supplier under your contract with them.


Payment

If you have paid a deposit, you must pay the full balance by the balance due date notified to you. If full payment is not received by the balance due date, we will notify the supplier who may cancel your booking and charge the cancellation fees set out in their booking conditions. Except where otherwise advised or stated in the booking conditions of the supplier concerned, all monies you pay to us for arrangements will be held on behalf of the supplier(s) concerned.


Our responsibility for your booking

Your contract is with the supplier and its booking conditions apply. As agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the arrangements. Our responsibilities are limited to making the booking in accordance with your instructions. We accept no responsibility for any information about the arrangements that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.


Flight-Plus bookings

Booking a Flight-Plus provides you with protection under our ATOL in the event of supplier insolvency, but we are still acting as agent for the individual suppliers and a Flight-Plus booking does not constitute a package as described in section B above. A Flight-Plus exists where you request to book a flight out of the UK, or a flight into the UK where you departed from the UK by another means and on the same day, the day before or the day after, you also request to book either living accommodation or self-drive car hire which takes place outside the UK and is supplied under or in connection with your flight. In all cases the services must cover a period of more than twenty four hours or include overnight living accommodation in order to make them a Flight-Plus. If in connection with the flight, you also book any other tourist services which are not ancillary to flight or living accommodation and which account for a significant proportion of the Flight-Plus, they will also form part of the Flight-Plus.

A Flight-Plus will also exist where on the same day, the day before or the day after you have requestedto book: a) a non-flight inclusive Package, you request to book a flight out of the UK, or a flight into the UK where you departed from the UK by another means or b) a flight inclusive Package, you request to book accommodation or self-drive car hire outside the UK. (A Package exists if you book a pre-arranged combination of at least two of the following components when sold or offered for sale at an inclusive price and when the service covers a period of more than twenty-four hours or includes overnight accommodation:-(a) transport; (b) accommodation; (c) other tourist services not ancillary to transport or accommodation and accounting for a significant proportion of the Package.) Please note that a single flight which begins and ends in the United Kingdom will not form part of a Flight-Plus. Where you request to book a Flight-Plus, we will be a Flight-Plus Arranger in accordance with the definitions set out in Regulation 25 of The Civil Aviation (Air Travel Organisers' Licensing) Regulations 2012. Please note that where you book a low cost flight only and make payment directly to the airline, this will not constitute a Flight-Plus.


Our liability for Flight-Plus bookings

In these conditions, the failure or insolvency of a provider will have the meaning prescribed in Regulation 23 of the ATOL Regulations 2012. If, before your intended departure on a Flight-Plus we become aware that any part of your Flight-Plus will not be provided a) because of the insolvency of any person concerned with the provision of the arrangements making up a Flight-Plus or b) because the ATOL holder providing your flight accommodation is insolvent, cannot or will not be able to meet, or will fail to meet its obligations to its customers, we will make reasonable endeavours to provide you with suitable alternative arrangements at no extra cost. If it is impossible to make such arrangements, we will give you a full refund of all monies paid to us in respect of your Flight-Plus.


If, after your intended departure on a Flight-Plus we become aware your flight arrangements will not be provided a) because of the insolvency of any person concerned with the provision of the flight accommodation making up your Flight-Plus or b) because the ATOL holder providing your flight accommodation is insolvent, cannot or will not be able to meet, or will fail to meet its obligations to its customers, we or the CAA will seek to provide you with suitable alternative transport back to the place of departure or to another return point to which you have agreed.


If, after your intended departure on a Flight-Plus we become aware that your living accommodation or car hire will not be provided because of the insolvency of any person concerned with the provision of the living accommodation or car hire making up your Flight-Plus, we will seek to provide you with suitable alternative living accommodation or car hire at no extra cost. If it is impossible to make such arrangements, we will give you a full refund of all monies paid to us in respect of all unused flight accommodation, living accommodation, car hire and other tourist services forming part of your Flight-Plus.


Where suitable alternative arrangements are provided as set out in this section, we will where appropriate, pay you reasonable compensation, to include any incidental expenses reasonably incurred by you and evidenced by receipts. Compensation will not be payable if living accommodation or self-drive car hire is offered by us and accepted by you with a higher price than that originally booked and is supplied in the same location as originally booked where no additional payment is made by you.


If cancellation occurs for reasons other than relating to insolvency, we will not be liable to pay you compensation and the above options will not be available. As agent, whether or not we have sold you a Flight-Plus, we will not be liable in respect of quality complaints, any general losses, distress or disappointment suffered by you in relation to your booking, and any such claims must be directed to the relevant supplier of the element in question. We will not make suitable alternative arrangements or pay you compensation in respect of any tourist services forming part of your Flight-Plus. A refund will be given in respect of these services in the event of insolvency but we will have no further liability.


We, or the suppliers of the services you have bought, 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 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).
