Multiple Airlines Itineraries

If your Itinerary consists of more than one airline, therefore two separate fare rules will be used, different rules and policies (for example, for baggage fees, change fees, and refunds) may apply in each direction or for each airline. For changes, refunds, exchanges, each airline may charge separately. In case of Schedule change or cancellations: if your initial flight is cancelled or the schedule is changed by either you or the airline, the other airline with which you booked your return flight is not obligated to issue a refund or change your itinerary. You are responsible for complying with each airline's terms and conditions, which may differ (for example, check-in times and limits on baggage size/weight). You may want to print both of your e-ticket confirmations before starting travel, in case you are asked for proof of return tickets.


Airlines Schedule Changes/Flight Cancellations

Skyoworld highly recommends that you re-confirm your flight schedules with the respective airlines directly as they may have last minute schedule changes. We recommend that you do so at least 24 hours prior to departure. for domestic flights (72 hours for flights to international destinations).

Please take note that many airlines make schedule changes with little notice and/or explanation. Skyoworld has no responsibility and accepts no liability in relation to the same. If an airline makes a change to any of its flight times and such changes are within a 4 hour period of your original flight times, we will notify you of such change by email. We will attempt to contact you;, however, due to various reasons if we are unable to get in touch with you, our email will serve as a final notice. For all such changes within a 4 hour period, tickets will remain non-refundable. Certain ticket types may be non-refundable even when the schedule change is over 4 hours.


Travel Insurance

It is extremely important to have adequate travel insurance before overseas travel.


Your Financial Protection

We are a fully bonded member of ATOL license 4570 issued by the Civil Aviation Authority. 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).


Alterations By Us

It is unlikely that we will have to make any changes to your travel arrangements but we reserve the right to do so at any time. We plan arrangements a long time in advance of your holiday using independent suppliers such as airlines and hotels, over whom we have no direct control. Most of these changes are minor and we will advise you or your travel agent as soon as we are able. If we make a major change we will also endeavor to advise you or your travel agent as soon as reasonably possible.

A major change includes a change of accommodation to that of a lower category and/or price, a change of flight time of more than 12 hours, a change of UK departure airport, (other than London airports) or a significant change of resort area. We will not be liable to pay any compensation if we are forced to cancel or in any way change your holiday as a result of unusual or unforeseeable situations outside our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even with all due care. These include unavoidable technical problems with transport, changes imposed by rescheduling or cancellation of flights by an airline or main charterer, the alteration of the airline or aircraft type, war or threat of war, civil strife, industrial disputes, natural disaster, bad weather, epidemic or terrorist activity.

Hotels described as First Class or Luxury are deemed so by us and not necessarily by any official grading. The assessment is based on our knowledge of the establishment, our general opinion and the standard of what is available locally. The term used i.e. deluxe, luxury suites etc are the same as those by the hotel in question. The Company does not own, manage or control the accommodation that it uses. Sometimes it is possible that the accommodation reserved is not available. In this event the Company and/or its agent will endeavor to provide accommodation of equal standard.


Cancellation By Us

We reserve the right to cancel your holiday for any reason. However we will not cancel your holiday less than 8 weeks prior to departure unless it is for a reason outside our control. If we have to cancel your holiday we will offer you: - alternative travel arrangements of equivalent or of very closely similar standard and price, if available travel arrangements of a lower standard and a refund of the difference in price; or a full refund of all monies paid. If the UK Foreign Office specifically advises against travel to a particular destination, the Company will act on that advice and cancel holidays. The amount paid by you for the holiday will be refunded but no additional compensation will be paid. No compensation is payable if the holiday is cancelled because the number of persons who agreed to take it is less than the minimum number required and you are informed of the cancellation in writing within the period indicated in the description of the package. Whilst every effort is made to operate a tour as advertised, on occasion it may be necessary to make changes to the accommodation, the routing or order of an itinerary.


Your Responsibility

You are responsible for obtaining valid passports, visas, vaccination certificates, health documents, foreign exchange for personal requirements etc. It is your responsibility to check entry requirements with the Embassy or Consulate of the country you plan to visit. You should also contact your GP in good time before you travel for health advice. You will be solely responsible if failure to obtain such documents results in your being unable to travel or refused entry or in fines, surcharges or other financial penalties being imposed on you. The Company has no liability whatsoever to you through your failure to do so. It is also your responsibility to comply with the laws, customs, foreign exchange and the drug regulations of the countries visited. The Company and its representatives reserve the right to cancel your holiday at any time if in our reasonable opinion you are found to be behaving in a socially unacceptable manner or indulging in illegal activities, without any refund and legal claim against the Company.


Data Protection Policy

We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We must pass the information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements such as airlines, hotels, transport companies, etc. The information may also be provided to security or credit checking companies, public authorities such as customs and immigration if required by them, or as required by law.


Complaints and Dispute

In spite of detailed planning it is recognized that occasionally problems do occur. If you incur any problems during your trip, it is essential that you bring them to the attention of the supplier and our agent or staff as soon as it occurs to give us a chance to investigate and rectify. In most instances, any necessary remedial action may be taken immediately and your holiday should continue unspoiled. If the problem cannot be rectified, you must contact us, in writing, within 7 days of your return. If you do not raise the matter during your trip, this will affect any later claim you may make.
