Contents of these Terms and Conditions

The customer's Contract Delivery of The customer's Booking Cancellations or Modifications by the customer to the customer's Booking Terms and Conditions relating exclusively to Flight Payment Passport, Visas and Health Requirements Other Generally Applicable Terms The customer's contract

A 'booking' means any order for products or services the customer make through our website or Call Centre which is accepted by us. Confirmation will be sent by London Star Travel Ltd (and a contract concluded) on receipt of full payment from the customer and sent a confirmation invoice and receipt by post or email (from either London Star Travel Ltd or the relevant Airline). These booking conditions govern all bookings with London Star Travel Ltd whose registered office is at 120 Mile End Road London E1 4UN. How the booking conditions apply to the customer vary depending on whether the customer have booked a package or other travel arrangements.

The whole package is a combination of at least two of the following a) transport b) accommodation c) another tourist service which forms a significant part of the customer's booking, providing those two or more components are sold to the customer at the same time at an inclusive price with full payment being made to London Star Travel Ltd. Anything else (e.g. air tickets only, air tickets and accommodation booked at different times, cruises and packages arranged by a third party tour operator where we act as their agents) constitutes other travel arrangements.

London Star Travel Ltd acts as disclosed Agent for the Airline and the customer's contract will be subject to the Airline's own terms and conditions which could limit or exclude liability to the customer often in accordance with international conventions. The Airline's terms and conditions is inclusive of fare rules that will be added in addition to those mentioned here. The Airline's terms and conditions may include provisions relating to payment procedures, default, liability, cancellations, changes of bookings and refunds (if available) and any other restrictions. The customer are responsible for complying with any airline conditions in relation to check-in times, re-confirmation of flights or other matters. Euro Africa strongly recommends that the customer take out insurance for any travel arrangement especially as there may be circumstances where neither London Star Travel Ltd nor the Airline can accept liability (e.g. delays or cancellations beyond our control). Insurance cover contains unanticipated restriction of the customer's holiday, cancellation fees, medical and repatriation expenses including air ambulance, personal accident, delay, loss or damage to the customer's personal effects, theft, etc.

Flights

It is to be noted that there are certain supplementary terms specific to that fare. For example, tickets are normally non-changeable and non-refundable. In addition, the majority of airlines reserve the right to make schedule changes and cancel confirmed bookings. While London Star Travel Ltd, as Agent, is not responsible for such schedule changes or cancellations, we will provide the customer with any reasonable assistance the customer require via our customer services.

The recommended minimum check-in time for international flights is 120 minutes prior to departure and for domestic flights, 90 minutes before departure. Some airlines require the customer to reconfirm the customer's return flight booking at least 72 hours before travel. Failure to reconfirm the customer's flight booking directly with the airline may result in cancellation. Flights must be used in the order set out in the customer's itinerary - eg a failure to use the outbound flight or first stage of a journey could invalidate the rest of the ticket.

We strongly recommend (particularly if the customer are flying Economy class), that the customer check in early if the customer have particular seat requests. London Star Travel Ltd has no command over the allotment of seats, despite advance booking with the airline, and can make no guarantee that specific seats will be available on departure. London Star Travel Ltd is not responsible for the costs of any transfers between airports or terminals that the customer may incur.

Delivery of the customer's Travel Document

The following applies to all products or services booked through our Call Centre or website: E-tickets Most tickets sold by London Star Travel Ltd are e-tickets. E-ticketing is a 'paper-less' way to book flights. Once the customer 've made the customer's booking, it's stored electronically in the airline reservation system. London Star Travel Ltd will send the customer a confirmation invoice and receipt email or post. The customer will NOT receive a physical 'e-ticket' or paper tickets to present at the airport. We recommend that the customer take a printout of the customer's confirmation invoice with the customer, although many airlines won't ask to see this. Please note that airlines have their own rules and regulations with regard to e-ticketing. In case of non compliance, London Star Travel Ltd are not responsible for these rules and regulations and strongly recommends that the customer check these details with the customer's airline in advance of travel. London Star Travel Ltd relies on the information that the customer provide as being accurate and therefore cannot be held responsible if the customer's confirmation invoice and receipt does not arrive by post or email. The customer must notify us immediately if the customer change the customer's email or postal address or contact telephone number. In addition, please check that the name on the customer's passport matches the name on the customer's ticket and/or booking confirmation.

In some circumstances, London Star Travel Ltd or the Airline may be unable to cancel or modify a travel product or service unless we receive a written request together with payment of any extra fees and associated charges. Please note that, in relation to flights, a 'no-show' for a flight may result in the customer's ticket being cancelled by the airline and therefore not refundable.

A British Passport is made in way that has machine-readable capability when the white strip at the foot of the personal data page (at the back of the passport) bears two lines of print. If there's no white strip, or the white strip is blank, then the passport is not machine-readable.
