Terms and conditions: Booking conditions & information’s
A. Package Holidays:
1. Your Contract/Financial Protection
A contract will exist between you and us when we issue a confirmation voucher/invoice/receipt.
2. Price Changes
Changes in transportation costs, including the cost of fuel, dues, taxes, or fees chargeable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports and exchange rates mean that the price of your travel arrangements may change after you have booked.
Please note that travel arrangements purchased in local currency and some apparent changes directly impact the price of your travel due to contractual and other protection in place.
3. Changes you make before travel (excluding name changes)
If you want to change any of your Package reservations, please contact us, and we will do all we can to help you. Our standard cancellation charges (as per contracted offer) will apply if you make any changes to your arrangements.
4. We will charge for any additional services, facilities, or other items changed at the price that applies when the change is made. Any booking discount you may have received when the original booking was made may alter or reduce whenever changes are made.
Scheduled airline carriers do not always allow changes to be made to travel dates once confirmed. Where the airline imposes charges, which may be as high as 100%, these will be passed on. If the changed arrangements are more expensive than those originally booked, you must also pay the price difference. If you cancel any ‘optional extras’ for which there is a charge, you will lose any deposit you have paid for the item.
For satisfied optional extras, such as transfers & insurance, you will also have to pay cancellation charges.
5. Cancellation by You
To cover our expected losses for the transport and accommodation services we pay for in advance, 100% cancellation charges may apply.
6. Changes Made by Us before Travel
If any modification has a significant effect on your holiday, we will tell you about it before your departure.
Suppose you do not want to accept a significant change, which we will tell you before your Package holiday. In that case, we will, if we can do so, offer you an alternative Package of equivalent or superior quality at no extra cost, or a less expensive Package holiday, in which case we will refund the price difference. If you do not wish to take the alternative we offer you, you can choose another Package holiday from us and pay, or receive a refund of, any price difference. Or, if you prefer, you can cancel your Package holiday and receive a full refund of any money you have paid to us, except for any amendment charges.
7. Circumstances Beyond Our Control
Except where we say differently elsewhere in these conditions, we cannot pay any compensation, reimburse expenses, or cover losses for any amount, or otherwise accept responsibility if, as a result of circumstances beyond our control, we have to change your Package holiday after departure, or we, or our suppliers, cannot supply your Package holiday, as we, or they, had agreed, or you suffer any loss or damage of any description.
When we refer to circumstances beyond our control, we mean any event that we, or the supplier in question, could not foresee or avoid, even after taking all reasonable care. Such circumstances will usually include, but are not limited to, war, terrorist activity, civil unrest, industrial dispute, bad weather (actual or threatened), and significant building work ongoing outside of your accommodation, which is not known to us in advance of your departure date and building work from a third party (such as resort development).
8. Our Liability to You
Our obligations, and those of our suppliers providing any service or facility involved in any of your Package holidays, are to take reasonable skill and care to arrange for the provision of such services and facilities and, where our supplier or we are providing the service or facility, to provide them with reasonable skill and care. Compliance with any applicable regulatory requirements (such as those of the Civil Aviation Authority) will be the proper performance of our and our suppliers’ obligations. You must show that reasonable skill and care haven’t been used if you wish to make any claim.
You are obliged to assist us in recovering any sum from any third party which may compensate us for any amounts we pay you. In particular, you are compelled to assign to us any rights that you may have against any other person whose acts or omissions have caused or contributed to our legal liability to pay you compensation. You must also provide us with all the assistance we may reasonably require. Finally, you must follow the procedures for the notification of complaints set out in the clause below entitled “If you have a complaint.”
Other than as set out above and as detailed elsewhere in these booking conditions, we shall have no legal liability whatsoever to you for any loss, damage, personal injury, or death that you suffer from directly or indirectly from any aspect of your Package holiday.

Bookings for Single Components may be amended or canceled by the relevant supplier’s terms and conditions and subject to the supplier’s amendment and cancellation charges.

5. Denied Boarding

You are obliged to claim the appropriate sums under those Regulations from the carrier. Any sums received by you in this respect constitute the total amount of your entitlement to compensation for all matters flowing from the carrier’s actions and which fall within the scope of the Denied Boarding Regulations.

5. Lost/Stolen Flight Tickets
If you lose your flight tickets or they are stolen before traveling, we will have to adhere to the airline’s rules and regulations.
6. Airline Refund Procedures
The refund policies applied by airlines vary greatly. If you return your unused ticket to us, we will present it to the relevant airline for assessment.
If the airline agrees to issue a refund, we will forward such a refund to you less cancellation or administration charge.
If you paid us by credit card, we would refund the amount due to you on your credit card; otherwise, the refund will be made in cash.
Please note that any refund for partially used tickets is always less than the pro-rata rate. Refunds usually take 10-12 weeks to process, but they may take longer in some cases. Tickets returned more than one year from their date of issue are classed as expired by the airline and generally have no refund value. We recommend that tickets sent to us for a refund are brought in person or sent by recorded courier.

Suppliers’ terms will also apply to your contract with us, and in the event of any conflict between the suppliers’ conditions and ours, the suppliers’ conditions will prevail.
Some of our supplier’s conditions may limit or exclude liability on the part of the relevant supplier. Their application to your contract with us may also limit or exclude our liability to you, and they are often subject to international conventions. Where relevant, copies of such conditions may be available for inspection at the office of the applicable supplier.
When you buy any service from Geoota Travel, additional terms and conditions are added to the list of these terms and conditions when your booking is confirmed and you’ve agreed with the service you chose. For example, for all the services and cancellation policies that you agree to when booking, you must adhere to these terms and conditions dedicated by the chosen supplier.
You should know that the supplier, within hours after payment, may reject bookings; it is possible to replace the service with another similar one, provided that the price difference, if any, is paid, or the amount is refunded if the service will refuse.
If you are not satisfied with any aspect of your travel arrangements, please present your claim as soon as possible to the relevant person (for example, the hotel management).
If they cannot help, you must contact us on the telephone number (of branch/travel counselor) supplied to you on your invoice/receipt, and we will do everything reasonably possible to sort the problem out.
9. Passports & Visas and Health Requirements
It is your responsibility to ensure that you and all those traveling with you have a valid passport and the necessary visa and have obtained any necessary vaccinations to gain entry to any country you are visiting. It can often take some time to get a passport or visa; therefore, you should apply well in advance.

Therefore, we recommend that you check passport/visa requirements with the Embassy or Consulate of the country you intend to visit and that you consult your doctor or the Foreign Office regarding health requirements. We will have no liability to you if you or any member of your party travel without the correct passport and visa or the necessary vaccinations.
