Please take time to read carefully the following terms and conditions for your own information and protection. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have read and understood the various terms associated with your contract before placing any bookings. By making a booking with us, you agree to be legally bound by these terms and conditions as they may be modified and posted on our web site from time to time.
We act as agents for licensed tour operators. As travel and booking agents we act only as Agents for the Principals actually providing the relevant services and with whom your contract will be made. We shall not be liable for any act or default on the part of such a Principal or its agents or servants. All transfers shown are subject to availability.
Your Contract with Us
When you make a booking you guarantee that you have the authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party the terms of these booking conditions. A contract will exist as soon as the booking is confirmed on our computer system. This contract is made on the terms of these booking conditions, which are governed by Turkish law, and the jurisdiction of the Turkish Courts.
Airport Transfers acts at all times as a booking agent on behalf of the supplier(s) involved with your transfer booking. As a booking agent, the company's role is to ensure that all travel components/services booked correspond with what has been agreed with you at the time of booking. In the case of those components/services deviating from what has been agreed due to the supplier(s') inability to honour the contract, then Airport Transfers will open a communication dialogue between the relevant supplier(s) and the customer and will not be liable for any compensation claims. In this context, Airport Transfers cannot be held responsible for any changes imposed by the suppliers nor can be considered liable for any omissions/mistakes, unless the latter occur due to our negligence. Ultimately, the customer will enter into a trading relationship with Airport Transfers, which will be restricted solely to the above mentioned role of the company as a booking agent, as well as with the various suppliers involved who will have the responsibility to provide in full the services/products advertised at the time of booking.
Payments & Deposits
Full payment is due at the time of booking. Upon receipt of payment Airport Transfers will issue a booking confirmation by email, along with a printable 'Transfer Voucher' for your outward and return journey. We reserve the right to levy a percentage of the transaction value where payments are made by credit card. Your transaction will appear on your bank statement as sunshine.co.uk, of which Airport Transfers is a trading name.
Changes and Cancellations
Amendments or changes to your booking must be received in writing from the lead named passenger and the email address we have on the booking atleast 48 hours before departure. Charges may be levied by your chosen suppliers, for which you will be advised at the time of the amendment. In addition, Airport Transfers reserves the right to apply additional charges in the event of cancellations or amendments, as outlined in the table below. The later will have an immediate effect from the moment you place a booking through us. Please note that any incorrect information on the documentation received from us, must be brought to the attention of the Administration Department of Airport Transfers, within seven days of the date of issue of the received documents. We will not accept responsibility if you neglect to check the validity of all the information provided after the time period specified above. Failure to draw the correct information to our attention will impose the following charges, in addition to the tour operator's terms and conditions.
> Cancellations outside 4 weeks of departure : 25% Cancellation Charge
> Cancellations within 4 weeks of departure : 100% Cancellation Charge
> Amendments: £ 5 per amendment + transfer supplier charge
As Airport Transfers act as booking agents for the individual elements of your holiday and as customers are required to agree to the Terms & Conditions of the relevant supplier at the time of booking, we are therefore not defined as the 'Principal' within TURSAB's Code of Conduct, section 3.
We recommend that all passengers are adequately insured before travelling abroad. The latter is usually a prerequisite for most tour operators, who reserve the right to deny travel when proof of insurance cannot be provided.
At the time of booking it is the customer's responsibility to advise us of any special requests such as child car seats or mobility requirements for transfers. Please note however, these cannot be guaranteed.
The EU directive 2003/20/EC states that children must use an appropriate child seat until they reach the age of 12 years or until they reach a height of 135 cm. However for licensed taxis there is an exemption. If no child seat is available, children of 2 years of age or over may travel as long as they wear an adult seat belt. Children under 3 years of age may be transported without a seat belt or safety harness as long as they travel in the rear of the vehicle.
In summary, the Supplier's policy is as follows:- Shuttles
There will be no charge for children under 2 years of age (providing they sit on an adults lap, and do not occupy the front seats of the vehicle)
Children aged 2 years and above always count as a passenger, occupy a seat and must be booked and paid for in full.
Children under 2 years of age may travel unrestrained (on an adult's lap) in the rear of a vehicle if no child seat is provided. However, will still count towards the vehicle occupancy.
If customers choose to use or take a child seat, then the child must be included in the total number of passengers travelling, as a seat in the vehicle will be required.
Children aged 2 years and above always count as passengers and occupy a seat, and must use an adult seat belt if no child seat is provided.
NB - If parents choose to use a car seat, we recommend they take their own to ensure safety standards. Upon request at the time of booking, in some resorts, child seats can be pre-booked. Fees may apply.
Please inform us at the time of booking if any of the passengers are wheelchair users. Please also inform us as to whether the wheelchair is collapsible, so that we can ensure that the correct vehicle is booked to meet your needs.
We hope your travel arrangements run as smoothly as possible and that you will enjoy your holiday. However, if you have a complaint while you are in the resort, you must first report it immediately to the local representative of the supplier. If the problem cannot be resolved on the spot you should make a written complaint to the supplier's representative in the resort and report the matter in writing to Airport Transfers within 14 days of returning to the UK. Please note that you should allow 28 days so that all issues raised can be concluded and resolved.
Excess Luggage, Behaviour & Liability
If you are carrying any excess luggage such as surf boards, golf clubs, bicycles, but not limited to, or other oversized items, you will need to inform us when booking to ensure our suppliers can provide the correct vehicle. Should you fail to notify us, you will be liable for any additional costs incurred.
Our suppliers reserve the right to terminate the transfer if you or your party's behaviour or conduct is disruptive towards the driver or other passengers. Neither us or the suppliers will accept any liability for any extra costs incurred. Passengers are forbidden to consume alcoholic drinks on any transfer. Any costs incurred by you or your party due to damages on a transfer must be paid by your or your party at your destination and us or the supplier will not be liable for these costs.
As we are acting, only as a booking agent we have no liability for any of the transfer arrangements, and in particular no liability for any illness, personal injury, death or loss of any kind, unless caused by our negligence. Any claim for damages for injury, illness or death arising from your use of the transfer services, must be brought against the operator of the transfer services and will be under the jurisdiction of the law of the country in which the transfer is being provided.
We will not make compensation payments for any cancellation/changes caused as a result 'force majeure'. Force Majeure means any inability by us to perform our contractual obligations resulting from any cause or reason whatsoever beyond our reasonable control. This includes, but is not limited, to acts of war (whether war is declared or not), the threat of war, riots, civil disturbances, industrial disputes, terrorist activity, natural disasters, fire, inclement weather, technical problems to transport, airline failure, closure or disruption to airspace or airport.
