Changes by us
It is unlikely that we must make any changes to your holiday, but we do plan the arrangements many months in advance. We therefore reserve the right to change the particulars and prices shown in these web pages and in our printed brochure, in which case we will tell you before confirming your booking. Occasionally changes may have to be made after a confirmation voucher has been issued, and we reserve the right to make changes at any time. If there is a major change to your arrangements (i.e. a change of resort or a change to a lower or higher standard of accommodation) we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before departure and will offer you alternative accommodation. Where this is cheaper we will refund the difference but where it is more expensive you must pay the difference, or cancel your arrangements and receive a full refund, but no compensation will be offered.
If, before departure, there is a minor change, we will do our best to inform you in advance although we are under no obligation to do so, nor are we obliged to pay compensation.
28. Our liability to you
(1) We have a duty to select the suppliers of your arrangements with reasonable skill and care. We have no liability to you for the actual provision of the arrangements, except in cases where it is proved that we have breached that duty and damage to you has been caused. Therefore, providing we have selected the suppliers/subcontractors with reasonable skill and care, we will have no liability to you for anything that happens during the service in question or any acts or omissions of the supplier, its employees or agents.
We also have no liability in the following situations:
(i) where the arrangements cannot be provided as booked due to ‘force majeure’ /circumstances beyond our control.
(ii) where you incur any loss or damage that could not have been foreseen at the time of your booking, based on the information provided by you.
(iii) where you incur any loss or damage that relates to any business activity or loss of opportunity.
(iv) where any loss or damage relates to any services which do not form part of our contract with you.
(2) We limit the maximum amount we may have to pay you for any claims you may make against us. For all claims, which do not involve death or personal injury, the maximum amount we will have to pay you if we are found liable to you on any basis is the price (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges) paid by or on behalf of the person(s) affected in total unless a lower limitation applies to your claim. This maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone wrong and you have not received any benefit at all from your arrangements.
(3) We accept no liability for intermittent failure of public supplies or utilities such as water or electricity over which we have no control, nor of sewage systems, plumbing or mechanical equipment in villas, but shall use our best endeavours to arrange prompt repairs where possible.

Should you then wish to make a claim against us because of your illness or injury, you must provide us with details of both the local doctor whom you saw with written authority for us to obtain a medical report from both of those doctors.
(6) Where any claim or part of a claim (including those involving death or personal injury) concerns or is based on any travel arrangements (including the process of getting on and/or off the transport concerned) provided by any air, sea, rail or road carrier, the maximum amount of compensation we must pay to you will be limited. The most we will have to pay to you for that claim or that part of a claim if we are found liable to you on any basis is the most the carrier concerned would have to pay under the international convention or regulation which applies to the travel arrangements or hotel stay in question. Where a carrier would not be obliged to make any payment to you for any reason under the applicable International Convention or Regulation in respect of a claim or part of a claim, we will not be obliged to make a payment to you for that claim or part of the claim. When making any payment, we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are entitled to receive from the transport provider for the complaint or claim in question. Copies of the applicable international conventions and regulations are available from us on request. In any circumstances in which the carrier is liable to you by virtue of the Denied Boarding Regulation 2004, any liability we may have to you under our contract with you, arising out of the same facts, is limited to the remedies provided under the Regulation as if (for this purpose only) we were a carrier; any sums you receive from the carrier will be deducted from any amount due from ourselves.
