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, 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 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, 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.
Please note that most of the airline tickets carry a 100% cancellation charge. Please check at time of booking for the charges which apply to your ticket. Air tickets that do have a refund value should be returned by you to Travexpert and we will pass them to the airline. When Travexpert receives a refund it will be paid to you. This usually takes 8-12 weeks but in some cases (e.g. lost tickets) may take considerably longer. Please ensure that any tickets returned to the company are sent by registered post. In addition, the majority of airlines reserve the right to make schedule changes and cancel confirmed bookings. While Travexpert Ltd, as Agent, is not responsible for such schedule changes or cancellations, we will provide you with any reasonable assistance you require via our customer services. Airlines may charge for additional services such as checked baggage, airport check-in, preferred seating, in-flight entertainment (if available), food, drink and snacks etc. Any charges for these additional services are not included in the price of your flight ticket and must be paid to the airline directly.
