1.8  Website Bookings

The Website is available for flights departing from the UK only. You can book on the Website for up to 9 passengers per booking. You may book a flight in the class of your choice, First, Business or Economy Class (where available).

1.9  Documentation Delivery

Your documentation will be sent to the billing address of the payment method that was used to make the booking at least one week prior to departure.

1.10 Use of Credit and Debit Cards

We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards and Maestro, Solo, Visa Debit and Visa Electron debit cards. Your card will be debited when you click on the confirm button. The invoice and documentation will be sent to the registered billing address of the card holder.

1.11 Security 

We will take all reasonable measures to insure information you transmit to us using the Website will remain confidential and protected from unauthorized access.

We will not be liable for any such unauthorized access unless caused solely by our gross negligence, in which event you will be entitled to compensation up to a maximum of the value of the services purchased by you.

1.12 Security Information

To insure secure online payment and all other transactions of personal data, the Website uses a technology called SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL encrypts all communications between your computer and our server so that the information can only be read and understood by us. A closed lock in the bottom corner of your browser window shows a secure connection. For further information, please consult your browser’s security specifications. If your browser is equipped with SSL your transaction will automatically be secured. The common standard in the Internet to signal a secure site is a closed lock at the bottom of the browser. As long as the lock is displayed closed your information is secure and encrypted to avoid abuse. If you click the secure transaction link and still cannot see the closed lock, the reason may be that the window is in nested in another frame. To check that you have a secure connection (in Internet Explorer), click the right mouse button and properties, then certificates. Then you will see if the connection is secure or not. Another way (in Netscape Navigator) is to click the right mouse button and 'view frame info' at the bottom of the text you will see security information.

1.13 Website Contact

Online bookings & non-booking related queries

If you have a query regarding your online booking or encountered any problems whilst making your booking, or if you experience any technical problems during your interaction with this website,please email details toemiratesholidaysuk@emirates.comor alternatively call us on 020 7590 1461 during office opening hours.

2. Booking Conditions

2.1 Website Accuracy

We will try to ensure that the information on our website is accurate and up to date. However, when booking your holiday online please read the important ‘local information’ section carefully to ensure you are aware of any changes to the facilities and services on offer.

2.2 Our Pricing

All prices on the hotel pages of our website are intended as a guide only and are subject to change. You will be fully advised of your tailormade itinerary and pricing at time of booking. Unless otherwise noted, prices are per person, based on two people sharing and include flights, private airport transfers plus accommodation and meals as detailed in the itinerary. Some properties may ask you to book their compulsory gala dinner at Christmas or New Year, which you will be informed of when you make your booking.

2.3 Hotels

Half-board or all-inclusive properties may base their inclusive meals on specific dining venues. The hotel may then offer you a credit towards meals at other restaurants. When more than two people share a room the hotel may specify that this is based on the room’s ‘existing bedding’ and not provide an additional bed as standard, although rollaway beds can often be booked at an additional charge.

2.4 Special Offers

Some of our hotels run special offers and a selection of these are outlined on our website. The special offers on the hotel pages of our website are intended as a guide only and are subject to change. You will be advised of the full terms and conditions applicable to specific offers when you book and these may differ from the standard terms and conditions, particularly in relation to flights.

2.5 Early Check-in and Late Check-out

Flight times may result in you arriving early to or departing late from your hotel. If this is the case we strongly advise you to either book your accommodation room the night before so that you can be assured it is ready on your arrival, or to extend your hotel booking for the night of your departure so you have full use of its facilities until you leave the hotel. Our travel consultants will let you know flight times when you book so you can make suitable arrangements.

2.6 FCO Advice

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office produces useful advice for those traveling overseas, including information about health, insurance, money and safety, along with up-to-date details on individual destinations. This can be found onwww.fco.gov.uk/travel; alternatively telephone the FCO Travel Advice Line on 0845 850 2929.

2.7 Public Holidays

Ramadan will is expected to be observed from 9July to 7 August in 2013 (these dates can change by a day or two from location to location). Visitors to a Muslim country are advised to respect those fasting by refraining from drinking, eating or smoking in public during daylight hours and to wear modest dress in public areas. Most hotels and resorts have screened-off private areas for non-Muslims. Some tours, entertainment, bars and facilities may be restricted. In Abu Dhabi alcohol is not served in bars and restaurants during Ramadan, although drinks can generally be ordered via room service. In Dubai alcohol can still be served outside of fasting hours while selected hotels in Oman are able to serve alcohol during the month.

2.8 Passports & Visas

You must ensure that you have a valid passport in good condition and any necessary visas before travelling. Most destinations require that your passport remains valid for at least six months after your return date. It is also sensible to make a copy of all important travel documents to take with you. At the time of going to print, British Nationals do not require a visa to travel to Hong Kong, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, New Zealand, Seychelles, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates, while visas are required to enter Australia, Burma, Cambodia, China, India, Laos, Oman, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Please check with the country’s UK embassy for details on obtaining a visa, and recheck requirements for all destinations before travelling in case of any new regulations. Further information may also be found atwww.fco.gov.uk.

2.9 Health Matters

Travel health advice does change, and it is recommended that you contact your doctor at least six weeks prior to traveling regarding any overseas health requirements or vaccinations that you may need. Countries within the UAE, including Dubai, ban you from possessing certain prescription drugs. Please check with your consulate before you travel. The government also produces a useful leaflet, ‘Health Advice for Travellers’, which can be obtained free by calling 0300 123 1002, or downloaded from the Department of Health website,www.dh.gov.uk.

2.10 Special Requests

We will do everything we can to ensure that special requests are met, but cannot make any guarantees for requests like adjacent rooms, specific room numbers or bed types. Although they will be noted on your booking, any failure to meet special requests will not entitle you to compensation.

2.11 Your Holiday Contract

The lead named person on this invoice guarantees the authority to accept, and does accept on behalf of your party, the terms of these booking conditions and the useful information attached to them. A contract will exist as soon as we issue our invoice. This contract is made on the terms of these booking conditions, which are governed by English Law and the jurisdiction of the English Courts. You may, however, choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if you wish to do so. If you had not seen these terms and conditions when you made your booking and you are not happy to proceed with the booking now that you have seen them you may cancel within 48 hours of receiving your invoice. Your booking will be cancelled and your monies will be returned in full, provided you have not commenced your travel. This does not apply if your booking was made within eight weeks of travel.

2.12 Your Financial Protection

ATOL: We provide full financial protection for our package holidays, by way of our Air Travel Organiser’s Licence number [4086]. 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 will provide you with the services listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative). In some cases, where we aren’t 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).

If we 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.

ABTA: 
We are a Member of ABTA, membership number W4025. We are obliged to maintain a high standard of service to you by ABTA’s Code of Conduct. We can also offer you an arbitration scheme for the resolution of disputes arising out of this contract. The scheme is arranged by ABTA and administered independently. It is a simple and inexpensive method of arbitration on documents alone with restricted liability on you for costs.  The upper limit on claims is £5,000 per person and £25,000 per booking. The scheme doesn’t apply to claims which are solely in respect of physical injury or illness or their consequences.   It can however deal with claims which include an element of minor injury or illness subject to a limit of £1,500 on the amount the arbitrator can award per person in respect of this element. Your request for arbitration must be received by ABTA within 18 months of the date of return from holiday. For injury and illness claims, you can request the ABTA Mediation Procedure and we have the option to agree to mediation. Further information on the Code and ABTA’s assistance in resolving disputes can be found at www.abta.com.

2.13 Your Holiday Price

The balance of the price of your travel arrangements must be paid at least eight weeks before your departure date. However, certain airfares require full payment on confirmation of the booking and may have limited rights of cancellation. Silversea cruise bookings must be paid in full at least three months prior to departure. If you are unable to pay your final balance by the due date, your holiday may be cancelled without further notice and we shall retain your deposit. All monies paid to your travel agent are held by the agent on our behalf at all times. Payments can be made by cash, cheque, debit or credit card. Credit cards will incur a fee which we will advise you of at time of booking. Please note, should it be necessary to re-present a cheque to our bank which has been returned without being honoured by your bank, a £25 administration charge will be applied. Once you have received your invoice the price of your travel arrangements is fully guaranteed and you will not be subject to any surcharges.

Please note online prices are not combinable with the MBNA 10% discount offer. 

Please note that for stays in the Emirate of Dubai from 1st April 2014 the Government of Dubai has introduced a compulsory AED20 per room per night tourist tax, payable to the hotel upon check out.

2.14 If You Change Your Booking

If you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, for example your chosen departure date or accommodation, we will do our utmost to make these changes but it may not always be possible. Any request for changes must be made in writing from the person who made the booking or travel agent on your behalf and must be received at our offices at least eight weeks before your departure date. This must be accompanied by a payment of £35 per person listed on the booking to cover our administration costs. You will also be required to cover any increase to the cost of your holiday as a result of your amendment. Please note that certain travel arrangements (e.g. restricted / special airfares) may not be changeable after a reservation has been made and any alteration request could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements. If you wish to change your travel arrangements within eight weeks of departure this will be treated as a cancellation of the original booking and you will have to pay the applicable cancellation charges set out in clause 2.16.

2.15 If You Cancel Your Holiday

You or any member of your party may cancel your travel arrangements at any time. Written notification from the lead passenger or your travel agent must be received at our offices. Since we incur costs in cancelling your travel arrangements, you will be required to pay cancellation charges, which may be recovered under a suitable policy of insurance. In most cases, the amount due will be as shown in clause 2.16 but in a few cases, these may vary and you will be informed at the time of booking if this is the case.

2.16 If We Change Or Cancel Your Holiday

As we plan your holiday arrangements many months in advance we may occasionally have to make changes or cancel your booking and we reserve the right to do so at any time. Changes: If we make a major change to your holiday, we will inform you or your travel agent as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure. You will have the choice of either accepting the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value), or cancelling your holiday and receiving a full refund of all monies paid. In some cases we will also pay compensation as set out in this clause. These options do not apply for minor changes. Examples of minor changes include alteration of your outward/return flights by less than 12 hours, changes to aircraft type, change of accommodation to another of the same or higher standard, changes of carriers. Cancellation: We will not cancel your travel arrangements less than eight weeks before your departure date, except for reasons of force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance. We may cancel your holiday before this date if, e.g., the minimum number of clients required for a particular travel arrangement is not reached. If your holiday is cancelled you can either have a refund of all monies paid or accept an offer of alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us, if available (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value). In some cases we will pay compensation. Compensation: If we cancel or make a major change we will pay compensation as detailed below except where the major change or cancellation arises due to reasons of force majeure. The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so.

Due to the policies set by our airline, cruise, train and hotel partners, bookings for travel during peak periods may be subject to alternative cancellation charges and the above will not be applicable. These charges will be explained at time of booking. Force Majeure: We will not pay you compensation 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, for example, war, riot, industrial dispute, terrorist activity and its consequences, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, epidemics and pandemics, unavoidable technical problems with transport.

2.17 If You Have A Complaint

If you have a problem during your holiday please inform the relevant supplier, (e.g. your hotelier) and our local representative/agent immediately who will endeavour to put things right. If your complaint cannot be completely resolved locally please follow this up within 28 days of your return home by writing to our Customer Services Department at 3rd Floor Gloucester Park, 95 Cromwell Road, London, SW7 4DL or email emiratesholidaysuk@emirates.com giving your booking reference and all other relevant information. Please keep your letter concise and to the point. This will assist us to quickly identify your concerns and speed up our response to you. It is strongly recommended that you communicate any complaint to the supplier of the services in question as well as to our local representative/agent without delay and complete any available report form whilst in resort. If you fail to follow this simple procedure we will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were in resort and this may affect your rights under this contract.

2.18 Our Liability To You

For accommodation only bookings we act as an agent for the hotel and cannot accept responsibility for any injury, illness or death however caused, except where caused by our own proven negligence. Whilst we will offer such assistance as we can in respect of any dissatisfaction with the standards of accommodation, we do not accept any further liability. For package holidays including flights and accommodation booked at the same time, if the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed by us or our suppliers we will pay you appropriate compensation if this has affected the enjoyment of your travel arrangements. We will also pay compensation if you suffer injury, illness or death due to the negligence of ourselves, our suppliers or their employees acting in the course of their employment. However we will not be liable where any failure in the performance of the contract is due to: you; or a third party unconnected with the provision of the travel arrangements and where the failure is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall. Our liability, except in cases involving death, injury or illness, shall be limited to a maximum of three times the cost of your travel arrangements. Our liability will also be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to: (a) the contractual terms of the companies that provide the transportation for your travel arrangements. These terms are incorporated into this contract; and (b) any relevant international convention, for example the Montreal Convention in respect of travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of accommodation, which limit the amount of compensation that you can claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss, damage and delay to luggage. We are to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitation of compensation contained in these or any conventions. You can ask for copies of the transport companies’ contractual terms, or the international conventions, from our offices (3rd Floor Gloucester Park, 95 Cromwell Road, London, SW7 4DL). Under EU law (regulation 261/2004) you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from your airline in cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at EU airports and will also be available from airlines. 

However reimbursement in such cases is the responsibility of the airline and will not automatically entitle you to a refund of your holiday cost from us. Your right to a refund and/or compensation from us is set out in clause 2.16. If any payments to you are due from us, any payment made to you by the airline will be deducted from this amount. 

2.20 Personal injury unconnected with your booked travel arrangements

If you or any member of your party suffer death, illness or injury whilst overseas arising out of an activity which does not form part of your package arrangements or an excursion arranged through us we shall at our discretion offer advice, guidance and assistance to help you in resolving any claim you may have against a third party, provided we are advised of the incident within 90 days of its occurrence. Where legal action is contemplated our written consent must be obtained prior to commencement of proceedings and our consent is subject to your undertaking to assign any cost received or any benefits received under any relevant insurance policy to ourselves. Our costs in respect of the above on behalf of you and any member of your party shall not exceed £5,000 in total.

2.21 Passport, Visa and Immigration Requirements

Your specific passport, visa and other immigration requirements are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates. We do not accept any responsibility if you cannot travel because you have not complied with any passport, visa or immigration requirements.

2.22 Excursions

Excursions or other tours that you may choose to book or pay for whilst you are on holiday are not part of your package holiday provided by us. For any excursion or other tour that you book, your contract will be with the operator of the excursion or tour and not with us. We are not responsible for the provision of the excursion or tour or for anything that happens during the course of its provision by the operator.

2.23 Travel Insurance 

We strongly recommend that prior to travelling all clients obtain a fully comprehensive policy of travel and medical insurance suitable for your specific requirements.

2.24 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 which you provide such as name, address, and any special needs/dietary requirements etc. We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We must pass your information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements such as airlines, hotels, transport companies etc. This information may also be provided to security or credit checking companies, public authorities such as customs/immigration if required by them, or as required by law. Additionally, where your holiday is outside the European Economic Area (EEA), controls on data protection in your destination may not be as strong as the legal requirements in the UK. However, we will not pass any information on to any person not responsible for part of your travel arrangements. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary/religious requirements. (If we cannot pass this information to the relevant suppliers, whether in the EEA or not, we cannot provide your booking. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons). Please note that where information is also held by your travel agent, this is subject to your agent’s own data protection policy. Your data controller is: the General Manager, Emirates Holidays. You are entitled to a copy of your information held by us. If you would like to see this, please contact the data controller.

2.25 Marketing

We will hold your information, where collected by us, and may use it to inform you of offers in the future or to send you brochures. If you do not wish to receive such information in the future please send your name and address details to emiratesholidaysuk@emirates.com or call 020 7590 1461.
