on holiday and wait until you return to complain, and you must take reasonable
steps to minimise the consequences of the problem. 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 on holiday and this may affect your rights under this
contract. Any complaint must also be followed by written confirmation of all the
details, with any supporting evidence, within 28 days of your return from holiday.

10. OUR RESPONSIBILITY 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.
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 [3] 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: Holiday Places Ltd, Atlantic House,
3600 Parkway, Solent Business Park, Fareham, Hampshire PO15 7AN

We do not accept liability for happenings or actions outside our control, e.g.
delays to travel services, the temporary invasion of pests, the presence of
indigenous animals or insects, government action, industrial disputes, damage or
inconvenience resulting from the weather (e.g. drought conditions) or from acts of
God, or your party’s negligence resulting in loss or accident.

If the contract we have with you is not performed or is improperly performed as a
result of failures attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the
services, or as a result of failures due to 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, and you suffer an injury or other material
loss, we will offer you such prompt assistance as is reasonable in the circumstances.
If you have taken our recommended insurance cover, you must make an insurance
claim in respect of any legal fees incurred abroad for that purpose, and if you have
taken alternative insurance, you must do likewise under any Legal Expenses cover
provided by it. You must also provide us with the confirmation from the Insurance
company of receipt of your notification to them of your claim.

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.

11. YOUR RESPONSIBILITY You undertake to exercise due and reasonable care
in respect of your holiday accommodation and its contents, to leave it in a clean
and complete condition, to respect local and on-site regulations and bye-laws, to
limit party numbers to those on your confirmation, to remit payments as invoiced on
or before the due dates, to indemnify us against all loss or damage arising directly
or indirectly from any act, default or omission of your party, and not to exceed the
published occupation capacity of the accommodation. Any serious abuse of a
property or its contents may render you liable to eviction without compensation.

12. PRICES AND SURCHARGES The price of your holiday was calculated using
the exchange rate of £1 = 1.14 Euros on December 16th 2011. We reserve the right
to increase or reduce prices, and the current price of your holiday will be advised
to you at the time of booking. Whilst every effort is made to ensure the accuracy
of all the information and prices displayed on this website, regrettably errors do
occasionally occur. In the event that an incorrect price has been entered in error,
any booking made based on this price, will not be valid. You will be advised of the
mistake at the earliest opportunity and you will then have the option either to pay the
correct price for the travel arrangements or to cancel and receive a full refund of any
monies you may already have paid. Once you have booked your holiday we reserve
the right to surcharge for cost increases due to government action such as changes
in VAT or any other government imposed charges, transportation costs (including

the cost of fuel), taxes or fees chargeable for different services, embarkation or
disembarkation fees at ports, and exchange rates. There will be no charge within
30 days of your departure. We will absorb such increases up to 2% of your basic
holiday price (excluding insurance premiums and any amendment charges). If the
surcharge is greater than 10% of your holiday price you have the option of changing
to another holiday that we offer (if we are able to offer an alternative you will not have
to pay more, but if it is of a lower quality you will be refunded the difference in price)
or you have the right to cancel (within 14 days of receiving surcharge notification),
in which case we will refund in full all monies paid to us except insurance premiums
and any amendment charges. Should the price of your holiday go down due to the
changes mentioned above, by more than 2% of your holiday cost, then any refund
due will be paid to you. However, please note that travel arrangements are not always
purchased in local currency and some apparent changes will have no impact on the
price of your holiday due to contractual and other protection in place.

13. TRAVEL SERVICES When you travel by air, land or on water, the relevant
carrier’s ‘Conditions of Carriage’ will apply to your journey, some of which may limit
liability or exclude liability in accordance with the relevant international conventions.
Copies of the conditions are available for inspection at any ABTA travel agent.
Information given by us about such services is for guidance only and the carriers
concerned accept no responsibility for our website. It is your responsibility to report
promptly at the check-in times given by the carriers and with the appropriate valid
travel documents (e.g. Passports), and we cannot be held responsible for any
costs incurred by you if you fail to do so.

14. TRAVEL INSURANCE You agree to our requirement: at the time of booking
your holiday you either accept our travel insurance or you or your travel agent make
immediate alternative arrangements with cover at least to our own policy.

15. PHOTOGRAPHS General and unlabelled pictures are understood to illustrate
a feature, the region, or the country, and not to have any specific connection with
any accommodation shown on the same or other pages. Rooms shown in the
photographs are not necessarily the hotel’s standard rooms.

16. YOUR HEALTH ABROAD EU Visitors to other EU countries are entitled to
receive medical treatment under the State Service providing they have a European
Health Insurance Card (please be aware that this card may not cover all the costs
involved). At the time of publication, there are no special health precautions
recommended but for up to date information you should contact the Department
of Health. We strongly recommend you take out personal travel insurance with
adequate health cover to ensure you are fully protected should you become ill.

17. SWIMMING POOLS AND OTHER FACILITIES Where a swimming pool
or other facility is referred to as being available for use, such availability is at the
hotelier’s discretion and is understood to be conditional upon temporary or
unavoidable closure necessitated by: the hotels essential maintenance programme,
accident, damage or malfunction of equipment, and in the case of swimming pools:
compliance with any water conservation regulations imposed in times of drought,
damage or malfunction of the mains water supply. The above are understood to be a
result of force majeure and not to reflect on our failure to deliver an advertised facility.

18. BROCHURE VALIDITY Each brochure edition supersedes all previous
editions and will be superseded by subsequent editions upon their publication.

19. ARBITRATION In the unlikely event that a complaint cannot be settled
amicably between us, you may if you wish refer the matter to arbitration under a
special scheme, which, though devised by arrangement with ABTA is administered
quite independently (details on request). This is a simple method of arbitration
on documents alone with restricted cost liability to the customer. The rules of the
scheme provide that the application for arbitration must be made within eighteen
months of the date of return from the holiday but in special circumstances it may
still be offered outside of this period. The scheme does not apply to claims over
£5,000 per person or £25,000 per booking, nor to claims mainly or solely in respect
of injury or illness or their consequences. Alternatively, AITO’s Independent Dispute
Settlement Service may be called upon by either side to bring the matter to a
speedy and amicable solution.

20. PASSPORT/VISA It is the responsibility of all customers to ensure they have
a valid passport, and any required visa. For further information on passport and visa
requirements, please contact the Foreign and Commonwealth Office at www.fco.gov.uk.

21. HOLIDAY PARTICIPATION Should anyone be refused admission to the
destination country by the travel provider or government authority than we are
powerless to assist and cannot be held responsible. Any passengers considered
being unacceptably under the influence of alcohol or drugs may be denied
boarding to a train or ferry or entry into the country. In these circumstances we
shall consider the customer as having given notice of cancellation and be under no
liability for any costs or charges incurred as a result of our doing so.
