Because we are a Spanish company, we have to comply with Spanish law. This means, apart from anything else, that our financial protection arrangements are those required by Spanish law.
We act as an agent for third party travel providers. We do not own or control those who actually provide the accommodation, flights, transport services, excursions or other services which you book through us.
Please read the following booking conditions carefully. They set out your rights and our obligations to you.
Our obligations to you will vary substantially depending upon what you book through us.
If you book a flight on our website the booking is done directly with the airline via sky scanner, therefore any changes must be done directly with the airline and any disputes or complaints must be taken up with the airline. Please refer to sky scanner terms and the airlines conditions for more information.
If you book accommodation only, airport transfers or excursions, all these types of bookings are ‘Agency Bookings’.
Our Agency Bookings conditions are set out below.
- Website accuracy
1.1 We take all steps practically possible to ensure that the details given to you on our website are accurate and up to date but we do rely upon the descriptions given to us by the actual suppliers of the services and facilities described. Sometimes the facilities described will be withdrawn for reasons such as maintenance, bad weather or lack of demand from guests. Where our suppliers advise us about significant changes to descriptions or about the withdrawal of any significant facility, we will tell you as soon as possible. Some activities or facilities, water-sports for example, may not be available all year round. There may be a charge for some facilities, for example, TVs, safety deposit boxes, sun-loungers, parasols, tennis courts, pool tables and air-conditioning. In some places during high season (and even at other times) there is a possibility you will be disturbed by noise from less considerate groups, so please bear this in mind when choosing your destination and accommodation. All accommodation providers reserve the right to collect a refundable breakages deposit on arrival. Any transfer times we quote for travel between airport and resort are approximate and, depending on circumstances, the journey time to your own chosen property may be longer.

the provision of incorrect information from your suppliers.

Examples of Force Majeure events include but are not limited to; an act of god, severe weather conditions, unforeseen traffic delays or strikes, war, threat of war or similar, terrorism.

Accordingly, we have no liability or responsibility for anything which goes wrong with your Agency Booking unless caused by our own negligence or that of our servants or agents.

Since it is your supplier who is responsible for your booking they will have sole discretion in deciding how to deal with your problem. If you fail to discuss any complaints with your supplier whilst you are away your supplier will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were away and this is likely to affect adversely any rights you may have to compensation from your supplier.
