  1. Scope of Services
    1. Mediation of Travel Services
      1. For the flight, hotel, insurance and car rental services offered on the Portal (collectively referred to as “Travel Services”), We exclusively act within our capacity as an intermediary. To that end, our role and obligations are limited to mediating Travel Services that will be rendered by third parties such as airlines, travel operators, hotels, insurers, car rental companies or other service providers (hereinafter in each case “Service Provider”).
      2. Consequently, the agreement for the actual provision of Travel Services (e.g. transport contract, insurance contract, rental agreement) comes into effect directly between You and the relevant Service Provider. We are not a co-vendor of the Travel Services and We are not a party to the contractual relationship between You and the Service Provider.
      3. By using the Portal to purchase Travel Services, You authorize Us to mediate with the corresponding Service Provider(s) on your behalf, including mediation of the payment for these Travel Services, in order to take care that the transaction between You and the Service Provider(s) is carried out. The price issued for the actual Travel Services may include a commission for the services we render for mediating the agreement between you and the relevant Service Provider.
      4. Responsibility for the actual performance of the Travel Services mediated through the Portal is exclusively held by the relevant Service Provider. In our role as an intermediary, We do not assume any responsibility for the Travel Services to be rendered by the Service Providers and We make no representations or warranties (neither expressed nor implied) regarding the suitability or quality of Travel Services mediated on the Portal. For any claim You may have in context with the performance or non-performance of the Travel Service, the Service Provider is the responsible addressee.
      5. Should You have the opportunity to request special wishes (such as special meals, disabled facilities or child seats) when booking Travel Services, We will pass on your request to the relevant Service Provider. However, We cannot take any responsibility on whether the Service Provider can actually fulfil such wishes.
    2. Our own Services
    3. Apart from mediating Travel Services as stated in Section 1.1 above, there are also additional services (other than Travel Services) available through the Portal which We, ourselves, are responsible for providing. For such additional services, You enter into a direct contractual relationship with Us. In each case, we clearly inform you if and to what extent we offer own services instead of only mediating third party services. Our own portfolio of services may vary over time. Some of our own services are described in Section 8. For additional services not set forth in these T&C’s, a detailed description of such additional services as well as information about our fees and supplementary terms and conditions for booking and usage, is provided to You over the course of the booking process.
    4. Applicable contractual conditions
      1. These T&Cs apply to the mediation of Travel Services according to Section 1.1 as well as for our own services pursuant to Section 1.2.
      2. For the agreement between You and the relevant Service Provider (Section 1.1.2), the general terms and conditions of the relevant Service Provider (such as conditions of carriage, transfer conditions, insurance conditions or the like), as issued by the Service Provider apply. Such general terms and conditions of the relevant Service Provider will be notified to you over the course of the booking process. As the Service Provider’s terms and conditions may include provisions relating to liability, cancellation, changes of bookings and refunds (if available) and other restrictions, You are advised to read those terms carefully.
  2. Booking process and contact information
    1. During the booking process, You are provided with the technical means needed to detect errors in entry forms and to correct them prior to submitting your booking request. You are requested to check all data for accuracy before concluding your booking request. Subsequent change requests may lead to significant additional costs.
    2. We might need to contact You, e.g. in case of subsequent changes to the purchased Travel Services. You must submit accurate contact information such as your telephone number and email address. You must also continuously check if You have received a message from Us.

      It is also your responsibility to ensure that You are able to receive our messages. We are not responsible if You do not receive a message from Us due to circumstances reasonably outside of our control including, but not limited to the following: (i) You gave us an incorrect email address; (ii) your email settings won’t allow our email to reach You; or (iii) your email settings treat our email as spam.
  3. Mediation of flights
    1. Conclusion of contract and price changes
      1. After You submitted your booking request, We will confirm receipt of your request via email. This is the moment that the mediation contract between You and Us comes into existence. If You do not receive such confirmation within one hour of completing your booking request, and none of our operators has contacted you by email or telephone to indicate any problems, please contact us by telephone for verification.
      2. As soon as your requested tickets have been issued, You will receive a confirmation email with a ticket number. This is the moment a binding contract between You and the relevant airline(s) has been concluded.
      3. Prices for the flight, as well as seat availability, are directly inserted by the applicable airline. For airline price changes outside our control occurring after submission of the booking request, but before the contract with the airline has become binding (as set out in Section 3.1.2 above), the contract will not enter into force and your payment will be refunded in full. We may contact You and offer You the option to accept the changed price during ordinary opening hours, however no later than 24 hours after We have gained knowledge of the price change or on the first weekday following such 24 hours-period.
    2. Information on booking and transport conditions
      1. Regarding the flights offered on the Portal, We exclusively act within our capacity as an intermediary. The agreement for the performance of the flight comes into effect directly between You and the relevant airline and We do not accept any contractual responsibility related to the performance or non-performance of your flight. The operating airline is solely responsible for performance / non-performance of your flight.
      2. Before You conclude the booking, the terms and conditions of the relevant airline(s) will be made available to You.
      3. Below, by way of a general overview, We provide information on conditions related to booking and transport typically applied by airlines in such or at least a similar way. However, any deviating provisions of the relevant airline prevail over the general information provided in this Section 3.2.3. Therefore, in each case, please check the applicable terms and conditions of the relevant airline prior to your booking.
        • Flight times/check in
          All flight times specified are local. Next-day arrivals are indicated with a "+1" on the timetable. The stated flight times are preliminary and subject to change on short notice after the ticket has been issued; for example, due to restrictions by flight control, the weather, or functional restrictions by the airline. Please keep yourself informed of the current times well ahead of your flight.

          Please comply with the check-in times stated by the airline. The airlines are entitled to refuse boarding if You are late for check-in. Kindly observe that some airlines encourage check-in through their own website as they may charge a check-in fee when checking in manually at the airport.
        • Combination of individual tickets
          A combination of two separate one-way tickets instead of a roundtrip ticket is clearly marked as such during the booking procedure. The tickets are treated independently from one another in the event of cancellation, change, disruption of air traffic such as strikes and changes to flight schedules. Each airline's own regulations will apply.

          Flight tickets with different booking numbers are always regarded as journeys that are independent of each other.
        • Flight tickets with several segments/order of use
          Your roundtrip ticket or one-way ticket may consist of several segments. According to the conditions of most airlines, such flight segments are to be used in sequence. If not, many airlines will refuse transport on subsequent flight segments (e.g. failure to use one segment of a journey could invalidate the rest of the ticket). For roundtrip tickets a no-show on Your outbound flight may result in Your inbound flight being cancelled by the airline
        • Pregnancy
          Some airlines refuse to transport women who are past week 28th of pregnancy at the time of the outward or return flight. If you are pregnant You must clarify with the airline and your doctor whether or not You can commence the journey.
        • Infants and child tickets
          Please contact the airline to obtain the conditions for traveling with a child who does not have a separate seat. Usually, children above the age of 2 years require a separate seat, while children between the ages of 0 and 2 years travel as infants and will not be allocated a seat of their own. If the infant reaches the age of 2 before the end of the trip, a child ticket must be booked for the entire trip. Infant tickets cannot be booked before birth, as the correct name and date of birth must match those stated in the passport. We will not reimburse any expenses that arise if the wrong type of ticket is booked from the outset.
        • Unaccompanied minors
          We do not mediate the booking of any tickets for unaccompanied minors. Children under 18 years must be booked for a journey in the company of an adult. Some countries and airlines refuse entry to children under 18 years unless accompanied by a legal guardian. Please note that some airlines require children under the age of 18 to bring a birth certificate to travel.
        • Lost/damaged luggage
          Within our capacity as an intermediary, We accept no liability for lost or damaged luggage. Any problems should be reported immediately to the representative of the airline at the airport.
        • Transit and overnight accommodation
          Generally, ground transportation and/or overnight accommodation during your trip is not included in the flight ticket price. You are personally responsible for checking ground transportation timetables and prices.
        • Connection times between flights
          Standard tickets booked on the Portal have approved connection times. The times required for making connections between flights are calculated by the airlines. If a flight segment is delayed and leads to a missed connection, the airlines are obliged to assist You in reaching your final destination (see Section 11.1).
          When separate tickets are booked, the airlines bear no responsibility for missed connections resulting from delays. Therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure that the connection time is sufficient according to the airlines and airports. Any additional costs incurred on account of missed connections will not be reimbursed.
        • Double booking
          A double booking means that two or more bookings with the same passenger name have been made with the same airline. If You have a double booking, the airline may cancel the trip(s). This may also occur if the bookings have been made with different travel agencies. We are not responsible for cancellations made by the airlines, nor for denied refunds from airlines, in cases where they suspect a double booking.
    3. Airlines banned from operating in the EU (black list) Please note that certain airlines are prohibited from operating within the EU, according to a decision made by the European Commission in close consultation with the national air transport authorities. Such airlines are prohibited because they are considered unsafe or not subject to adequate control by the authorities of their country.
      You can check which airlines are affected by an operating prohibition via the following link:
      Black List (List of airlines not permitted to operate in the EU)
    4. Timetable changes and cancellation by airlines
      1. Your agreement with the applicable airline may allow them to cancel or amend your bookings. We will notify You of any changes once We are informed of them by the airline.
      2. The flight times shown in your booking confirmation may change between the date of your booking and the date You actually travel. In case of flight schedule changes, We will notify You as soon as We are informed thereof by the airline. However, We strongly recommend that You contact your airline at least 72 hours before the scheduled departure of each flight to ensure that the flight(s) (and any connecting flights) are operating on schedule. We have no control over airline’s schedule changes and accept no responsibility for costs which may arise as a result of such changes.
    5. Changes and cancellations requested by You
      For low cost airline(s), see Section 3.7.
      1. The conditions for changing flight bookings (including change of passenger name, destination, and date of travel) and for providing cancellation refunds are set by the relevant airline, which is your contractual partner for providing the flight. We, as the intermediary, have no influence over such conditions.
      2. If You wish to make a change to your booking or request a cancellation refund, as an additional own service, We offer to handle the request on your behalf, provided that the conditions of the airline permit such a change or cancellation refund. During the process of booking such additional services, we will inform You of any further conditions and fees for such services. Alternatively, you can, of course, approach the relevant airline directly.
      3. In order for us to be able to handle the changes requested by You, it is necessary that We receive your change requests at the latest 24 hours prior to the commencement of travel (only by telephone). If You have purchased our Flexible Ticket service, see section 8.

        For change requests at shorter notice, we recommend that You contact the relevant airline directly.
    6. Non-Appearance or Non-Attendance of the Flight You hereby authorize us to cancel the non-used flight on your behalf in case of non-appearance or non-attendance of the flight and to request possible refunds from the airline on your behalf. We are entitled but not obligated to do so and your right to request refunds directly from the airline remains unaffected.
    7. Low cost airlines
      1. It will be clearly displayed to You during the booking procedure if the applicable flight is operated by a low cost airline. The following special provisions apply for flights conducted by low cost airlines
      2. When mediating Travel Services rendered by low cost airlines, We may act on your behalf in concluding the contract between You and the low cost airline.
      3. We do not have access to the booking systems of low cost airlines. Therefore, please contact the relevant low cost airline directly for questions on bookings, changes or cancellation of your booking. If You have purchased our Flexible Ticket service (see Section 8), all rebooking requests must be made through our customer service as set out in Section 8.1.4.
      4. Please also note that some low cost airlines charge fees for manual check-in at the airport. In order to avoid such fees, You should use the possibility of online check-in through the website of the relevant low cost airline. Please inform yourself in good time prior to your departure about the check-in possibilities and conditions of your airline.
      5. Booking confirmations for low cost flights are sent as soon as the reservation has been confirmed by the relevant low cost airline. You may receive two booking confirmations – one from us and one from the relevant low cost airline. If You have received two booking confirmations, please use the booking confirmation of the low cost airline for check-in.
  4. Mediation of Hotel Bookings Hotel services booked via the Portal are mediated by EAN.com L.P. (“Hotels.com”).

    All queries in connection with the booking and any change or cancellation request must therefore be made directly to Hotels.com. You can find the contact details for Hotels.com here:
    Phone number: +44 (0)20 3788 4352

    You can access the terms and conditions of Hotels.com here.
  5. Mediation of Rental Car Bookings Rental car services booked via the Portal are mediated by Traveljigsaw Limited (“Rentalcars.com”).

    All queries in connection with the booking and any change or cancellation requests must therefore be made directly to Rentalcars.com. You can find the contact details for Rentalcars.com here:
    For local contact details please see Rentalcars web site.
    You can access the terms and conditions of Rentalcars.com here.
  6. Special provisions for the mediation of bookings of multiple services The Portal offers the possibility to mix and match multiple individual services as You wish (e.g. flight + hotel). In this case, You instruct us to act as an intermediary for the booking of various travel services from various suppliers. The relevant suppliers will be clearly presented to You during the booking procedure before the booking is completed. In the event that You combine individual services, no travel contract is concluded between You and us; instead, You conclude several contracts for the provision of individual services with each separate supplier. In this case, We solely operate within our capacity as an intermediary in relation to each individual travel service.
  7. Information on passport, visa and health provisions
    1. Passport, visa and/or health requirements can change and You should therefore check with the relevant authority (embassy, consulate etc.) well in advance of travel. It is your responsibility to be in possession of a valid passport and, if appropriate, a visa. It is important to remember to include all transit points in your journey which may also require You to obtain a visa. It can often take some time to obtain a visa, so You are advised to apply well ahead of time. We accept no responsibility for customers who do not possess the correct documents.
    2. Each destination has its own requirements as far as entry formalities, vaccinations, etc. which can also vary depending on the passenger's nationality. It is your responsibility to collect that information. No incidents arising from the failure to comply with such official regulations will be considered our responsibility. We therefore urge You to always verify the different formalities of the chosen destination or transit countries, as well as the time needed to take all of the related steps.
  8. Our own services
    1. Flexible Ticket
      1. If purchased during the booking procedure, the Flexible Ticket allows You to change date and/or time of your flight booking under the terms set out in this section. When providing our Flexible Ticket service, We only mediate the transport contract between You and the relevant airline. As the Flexible Ticket is our own service (i.e. You cannot make use of our Flexible Ticket service by contacting the airline directly) all rebooking requests making use of the Flexible Ticket service must be made via our customer service (see Section 8.1.4.1).
      2. The Flexible Ticket allows flights to be rebooked under the following conditions:
        • All rebookings must be made in accordance with Section 8.1.4 and at least 24 hours before the original time of departure.
        • Rebooking is only possible within the same airline, i.e. a flight can only be rebooked to a flight operated by the same airline as the one operating the originally booked ticket.
        • Flight segments must be used in the same order in which they were originally booked.
        • Upgrading to a different cabin, or booking class, on the same flight is not permitted.
        • Rebooking a ticket for a so called “stop-over” (i.e. staying in a connection city longer than originally booked) is not permitted.
        • A change of origin and/or destination is not possible, neither for the outbound nor the return flight.
        • The Flexible Ticket does not allow any names to be changed or corrected.
        • A journey can only be rebooked once. Once the change has been confirmed, the Flexible Ticket has been used up.
        • In case of rebooking, the journey must be completed within one year from the time of original booking. The new trip may not commence within 24 hours from the time of change request.
        • The booking is non-refundable once the Flexible Ticket service has been used.
      3. The Flexible Ticket must be booked and paid for during the booking process and cannot be added afterwards.
      4. If You want to rebook your ticket, You have to contact our customer service by phone during our ordinary opening hours. You can find our phone number under “Contact Us – Phone”. "

        Please note that we communicate in English by phone and email.
      5. Rebooking is only completed once We have confirmed it by e-mail. If You do not receive a confirmation, please contact our customer service.
      6. The rebooking of flights using the Flexible Ticket service is subject to availability. If the desired change results in a more expensive ticket, or if the change leads to the passenger no longer being entitled to a special price (e.g. for a small child), You have to bear the additional costs yourself. We are not responsible for the effects rebooking may have on any additional services concluded directly with the airline (such as booking of additional luggage or seat reservations).
      7. If You cancel the flight, the price for the Flexible Ticket service will not be refunded.
      8. If You do not turn up for a segment of the journey, the rebooking option through the Flexible Ticket service will no longer be valid.
    2. Cancellation Protection
      1. Cancellation protection must be taken out and paid for at the time of booking the trip. This cover comes into force when the booking is made and ceases to be valid when the trip commences, calculated from the original departure date booked. All travelers in the booking must have taken out cancellation protection for this to be invoked upon cancellation of a booking.
      2. Cancellation must take place at least two hours before departure for the cancellation protection to be valid. The cancellation protection will cease to be valid once the trip has commenced. Airlines, hotel or car rental providers must be contacted directly for cancellations outside our telephone answering hours.
      3. When a trip is cancelled upon presentation of a valid medical certificate, the entire cost of the booking will be refunded except for our handling charge of 35 USD per person. We will not refund the charge for cancellation protection or previously paid fees, charges and any insurance policies (apart from travel insurance). The maximum amount payable in the event of cancellation against cancellation protection is 3,000 USD per person and/or 6,000 USD per trip.
      4. Reimbursable incidents Funds will be reimbursed if You are unable to take a planned trip due to the following unforeseen incidents:
        • Acute illness or accident affecting You, your travelling companion on the same booking or a close relative, and You are advised not to take the planned trip according to a certificate from an impartial doctor who is providing treatment.
        • Death affecting You, a close relative or travelling companion on the same booking.
        "Close relative" in this context means the insured party's husband, wife, children, grandchildren, siblings, parents, grandparents or parents-in-law, or a person that the insured party lives with as a couple as if they were married.
      5. Cancellation protection does not include:
        • remuneration which may be received from elsewhere, such as other cancellation protection or insurance;
        • illness, accident or injury of which You were aware of (with which You were diagnosed) when concluding the cancellation protection;
        • chronic illnesses/infections/mental disorders, unless the person has been completely free of symptoms/problems over the past six months, from the time of booking the trip. If the cancellation relates to these symptoms, the diagnosis must be confirmed by a specialist;
        • illness, accident or other repercussions due to pregnancy or childbirth;
        • complications caused by alcohol, other intoxicants, sedatives or narcotics;
        • costs arising due to the fact that the insured party delayed his/her cancellation of the travel arrangement;
        • the purpose of the trip no longer existing;
        • complications resulting from personally selected procedures and treatments, such as beauty operations;
        • any supplementary arrangements for the trip which are not included in the confirmation, such as theatre tickets and suchlike;
        • flying phobia / fear of flying.
      6. What do we require from You? The cancellation protection only applies together with a valid medical certificate. This must be received by us within five working days of cancellation. The medical certificate must be completed by an impartial doctor who is providing treatment, and bear the name, contact details and stamp of the doctor. A copy of the doctor's identification must be enclosed if no stamp is available.

    3. Connection Guarantee
      1. Use of Connection Guarantee
        If the Connection Guarantee is included in your booking this will be clearly set forth during the booking process and on Your booking confirmation. The Connection Guarantee may be used in case any of your outbound or inbound flight(s) are rescheduled, delayed or cancelled by the respective airline (hereafter “Flight Change”) and such Flight Change either prevents You from reaching your final destination or delays your arrival to the final destination by more than 24 hours. For Flight Changes only affecting flight(s) within the same ticket (issued as one e-ticket (PNR)), the Connection Guarantee may not be used. The airline providing these flight(s) is responsible for any issues and for managing the Flight Changes and affected flight(s) within the ticket (contact the applicable airline directly for assistance and/or questions).

        Please note that the Connection Guarantee only applies for Flight Changes in the standard course of air transportation. In cases of Force Majeure (see 8.3.7 below) the Connection Guarantee cannot be used. Also, note that the Connection Guarantee cannot be used in case You have made any changes to your Booking without our previous approval.
      2. Inform Us without undue delay.
        If You want to utilize the Connection Guarantee You must inform Us without undue delay by telephone after You are informed of a Flight Change. See preamble for contact details. Should You not inform Us without undue delay, You will not be entitled to the Connection Guarantee.
      3. Offered Options – alternative flight(s) or refund.
        After We have been informed about the Flight Change according to Section 8.3.2, We will offer You one of the following options. If it is more than 48h until the affected flight’s original departure time the choice is made in our sole discretion. If it is less than 48h until the affected flight’s original departure time You may choose the option You prefer.
        a) We offer You alternative flight(s) to your final destination at our expense; b) We offer You a refund of the price You paid at the time of your booking for all the unused flights; or c) We offer You flight(s) for returning to the airport of Your departure.
      4. Your acceptance of the Offered Option
        You must respond with your acceptance of the offered option as soon as possible after receiving our information about the offered option, meaning within a reasonable time before the scheduled departure and in all cases no later than 24 hours after receiving the information. If We do not receive your answer within such reasonable time You may no longer utilize the Connection Guarantee.
      5. If You miss a connecting Flight outside our opening hours
        If your flight(s) is subject to a Flight Change leading to You missing a connecting flight, and our telephone opening hours prevent You from contacting Us immediately, You may purchase ticket(s) for alternative flight(s) to your final destination without prior approval from Us. We will refund You the price You paid for the alternative flight(s) provided that You can submit receipt for the purchased ticket(s) together with proof of the Flight Change which originally prevented You from reaching your final destination or would have delayed your arrival to the final destination by more than 24 hours. We will not refund costs for upgrades or additional services, meaning for example (without limitation) that the ticket(s) must be purchased in the same cabin class as the flight ticket(s) affected by the Flight Change.
      6. Other Compensations.
        In addition to the offered options under 8.3.6 the Connection Guarantee includes the below compensations. Note that You will need to cover the expenses for these additional compensations and provide Us with a receipt(s) proving your expenses before You may receive a refund.
        • Accommodation – If a Flight Change occurs with short notice leaving You without accommodation for the night (22:00-08:00), we will cover your costs for accommodation for one or several nights. The compensation is limited to a total of 50 USD/per passenger covered by the Connection Guarantee. Any compensation for accommodation You receive from the airline will be deducted from the Connection Guarantee refund.
        • Meal & Beverage – If a Flight Change leads to your flight(s) being delayed by more than 4 hours, We will cover the cost of meal and beverages up to a total of 10 USD per passenger covered by the Connection Guarantee. Any compensation for meal and/or beverages You receive from the airline will be deducted from the Connection Guarantee refund.
        • Alternative airport – In case We cannot offer You reasonable flight(s) to your final destination under 8.3.3 (a) we may refer You to alternative airports within a 200 km radius. In such case We will cover your costs for transportation to the alternative airport, however limited to a total of 100 USD in total for the passengers covered by the Connection Guarantee.
      7. Force Majeure
        The Cancellation Guarantee cannot be utilized in case of Flight Change’s due to Force Majeure situations, meaning circumstances outside the airlines reasonable control such as (without limitation) political instability, weather conditions, security risks, strikes, major limitation of airport operation and/or airline bankruptcy/insolvency.
