We have added a charge to the base cost of your vacation to cover the additional aviation insurance and security charges that have been imposed on airlines and tour operators. We believe the costs to be £10 per person at the time of writing, but you should be aware that they could alter between the date of publication and the time of travel. We reserve the right to raise the cost of this charge at any moment because these expenses are outside of our control. If a change is required, we will of course let you know about it.
Although we try our best to accommodate any modifications you might make after obtaining your contract, such adjustments are contingent on availability and are only possible in cases where the carrier permits them. The administration fee for these modifications is £ 30, plus any additional expenses they might have. We won't be able to alter your travel plan if the reservations have been „ issued “on „ non-changeable " special prices. Within eight (8) weeks of departure, changes must adhere to the cancellation charge schedule (described below). The carrier may not always approve name changes or departure adjustments; if they do, they may treat the request as a cancellation and charge you accordingly. If airline tickets have already been issued in this case, any modifications to the booking, you have to pay for the cancelled ticket as well as the cost of the replacement ticket.
If a person in authority decides you are not fit to travel or are likely to cause a disturbance to other passengers, you will not be entitled to a refund. Additionally, we have the right to terminate your vacation if your actions endanger the safety of other travellers, hotel guests, or staff members. In these situations, there will be no refunds or other forms of compensation given to you, and we may be able to recoup any costs paid as a result of your actions.
Although we believe the information in this leaflet is correct as of the time you receive it, things can change after it is published. For instance, during the early or late seasons, not all of a resort's amenities may be available. A hotel may occasionally switch from Waiter Service to Buffet Service and vice versa for its dinner service. Air conditioning may only be provided at particular periods of the day and/or year, or a pool may be closed for maintenance. The accessibility of resort and hotel facilities may also be impacted by Federal Holidays and religious celebrations. Details on these events and other information can be found at the tourist office for your chosen location. When you book your vacation, we will let you know if there are any significant changes that we are aware of.
Room descriptions and amenities from a brochure or Internet site in good faith, Hotel and Resort facilities are depicted in photographs and descriptions. The hoteliers provide the room descriptions, and occasionally we might mention suites or superior lodging. These are typically more spacious rooms with extra amenities; however this does not always imply that the lodging consists of more than one room. It's likely that facilities will occasionally be limited or unavailable due to Hotel Maintenance, Bad weather, Seasonal restrictions, etc. We have made every effort to guarantee that nothing in our brochure is untrue or deceptive as of the time of publication, but we retain the right to alter any information in the brochure or on the website before you make a reservation. Don’t forget that special demands made at the time of booking cannot be guaranteed.
Except in cases of a major change, we reserve the right to change your reservation at any time. The majority of these modifications are small, and we will notify you as soon as we can. Except in cases of force majeure or when you fail to pay the final balance, we won't cancel your reservation within eight (8) days of your departure. If a major change is necessary, we will notify you as soon as we can. You will have the option of accepting a change in plans, which would entail taking a vacation of equal value, or accepting a refund if the vacation is of a significantly lower calibre. If you entirely cancel, you are entitled to a full refund as well as appropriate compensation calculated using the trip price minus insurance Premiums, airport fees, and amendment fees in the manners described below:-
Within seven (7) days of receiving a notice, this cancellation must be submitted in writing.

We have the right to charge you additional fees for cancellation made by our suppliers in the event that they are greater than the cost of the deposit. Such costs will be disclosed by Zippy Holidays prior to cancellation. No refund will be offered if you cancel after receiving your paperwork unless you return your unused tickets to Zippy Holidays.

The proper provision of items of your vacation for which Zippy Holidays is the operator is accepted as its obligation. Zippy Holidays, however, is only regarded as a travel and vacation planner, and as such, it has no ownership or operational influence over any airline, shipping company, or rail firm.

You acknowledge that the „ conditions of carriage “set forth by the operating carrier or transport business shall apply to you during that trip. We rely on the terms and conditions stated in these international agreements and those „ conditions of carriage " while organising this transportation for you.

Additionally, we might give it to organisations that conduct credit or security checks, as well as to government agencies like customs and immigration.

Flights are booked through reputable airlines as part of the scheme. The airline usually offers beverages, food, and lodging if necessary if there are delays or cancellations. At the point of departure or the point of return to the UK, we don’t offer such services. Any claim concerning such occurrences needs to be submitted directly to the airline. A direct trip is one that doesn't involve changing aircraft along the way, yet stops are still possible because the aircraft might need to refuel or make space for additional passengers to board or disassemble. A non-stop flight makes a continuous journey from its point of origin to its final destination. When a flight is shown to stop at more than one location, at least one aircraft change is required along the way.
Airlines may decide that it is necessary to change the stated itinerary due to unanticipated events. This could be a last-minute modification or even take place on the trip to or from your destination.
Timings for flights could also alter. If this happens, and if it's possible, we'll let you know as soon as we learn of any alterations to the previously confirmed timings provided to us by the airlines.
