Towards a safe and healthy holiday... Part of the enjoyment of travelling abroad is experiencing a different way of life. Please remember though, that it may also mean experiencing different (and possibly lower) safety and hygiene standards from those we are used to in the UK. You must therefore bear this in mind and take care while you are away. Please read on.
Please therefore ensure that you read the policy and if you are unsure, ask. ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES Please remember that it is dangerous to use electrical appliances when wearing a wet bathing costume or with bare feet on wet floors. For your own safety, please exercise proper caution when handling electrical appliances and supervise closely any children who are doing so. Please report any electrical defects to your representative and the hotel reception as soon as you can. MOPEDS Due to varying road conditions overseas, we do not recommend moped hire. Should you still decide to hire a moped, we strongly advise that you wear a crash helmet at all times and to wear appropriate clothing and footwear whilst driving. You should take out full insurance cover. GAS For those of you staying in accommodation with gas installations, please remember: When gas is alight the room should be ventilated. If you are not sure of adequate ventilation then please leave a window or door slightly open. If there are battery operated detectors in your room/ apartment, please make sure the same are working and if in doubt ask reception to assist. When you leave your accommodation always ensure that the gas has been turned off. As an extra precaution for bottled gas, please also ensure that you turn it off at the bottle neck. Please do not use gas rings or ovens for heating your accommodation. They are for cooking only. If you detect any faults with gas appliances, please switch them off immediately and report them to a representative and reception. CHILD SAFETY Please remember that young children should never be left unsupervised, particularly around the swimming pool, on the balcony, near the lifts and in the children’s playgrounds. Make sure that your children always know where you will be and stress to them the importance of staying close by. FOOD/DRINKS/ILLNESS We would always recommend that you drink bottled water and avoid ice in drinks. Always be sure that food is properly cooked or properly chilled and that salads and unpeeled fruits have been thoroughly washed. If in doubt, do not eat it, and try not to over indulge. If you or any member of your party is ill ensure that a doctor is seen locally, and that you inform your accommodation provider and/or Travel Company during your stay. COTS AND HIGHCHAIRS Safety requirements vary from country to country. Please check before using a cot or highchair that you are happy with the safety standard and condition of it. If you have cause for concern please report it to your representative or to reception. PERSONAL SAFETY Please take care of your valuables at all times, particularly when out and about in the resort. Most holiday destinations have their share of pickpockets. We would advise that you use a safety deposit box if you can, and limit the amount of cash you carry. Remember to lock your doors at night and when you go out during the day, as you would at home. TRAVEL ADVICE The Foreign & Commonwealth Office has up-to-date advice on health and safety across the globe, as well as local laws, and passport and visa information. Please check https://travelaware. campaign.gov.uk/ regularly for updates ahead of travel, as the advice can change. The names on your itinerary must match those on your passports otherwise you will be unable to travel and will incur amendment or cancellation charges. Middle names are not required. It is your responsibility to contact us immediately if the names in your reservation are incorrect. Failure to do so may jeopardise your flight reservation. Most airlines offer only ‘e-ticketing’, and in such cases paper tickets are not available. 3. Payment In order to confirm your chosen arrangements, a minimum non-refundable deposit of £100 per person must be paid at the time of booking if you are booking more than 10 weeks in advance. A higher deposit may be payable depending on the particular arrangements booked and in some circumstances full payment for the arrangements may be required at the time of booking. Please check with us at the time of booking. Full details of the applicable payment will be given at the time of booking. If booking 10 weeks or less before departure, full payment must be made at the time of booking. If not paid in full at the time of booking, the balance of the cost of your arrangements must be received by us no later than 10 weeks before departure. The balance due date will be shown on the confirmation invoice. Please note reminders are not sent. If we do not receive all payments due (including any surcharges or other fees where applicable) in full and on time, your booking will be treated as cancelled by you and cancellation charges in accordance with clause 9 will apply. Any money paid to an authorised agent of ours in respect of a booking covered by our ATOL is held by that agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust at all times, but subject to the agent’s obligation to pay it to us for so long as we do not fail financially. If we do fail financially, any money held at that time by the agent or subsequently accepted from the consumer by the agent, is and continues to be held by that agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust without any obligation to pay that money to us. 4. Your contract When your booking is confirmed as set out in clause 1 “Making your booking”, a legally binding contract between you and Travel 2 comes into existence. These Booking Conditions and any agreement to which they apply are governed in all respects by English law. We both agree that any dispute, claim or other matter which arises between us out of or in connection with your contract or booking will be dealt with under the ABTA Arbitration Scheme where applicable (please see clause 18) or by the Courts of England and Wales. You may however, choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if you live in those places and if you wish to do so.
BALCONIES Please note the heights of some balconies may be lower and the gaps between the vertical rails wider than expected. If you are travelling with young children, please ensure that they are not left
• Always shower before entering the pool water. • Check your height in relation to the pool depth.
• Find out where the deep and shallow areas are, plus any slopes. • Check for any “hidden” obstacles in the water (e.g.…. rocks, ledges). • Never dive from the pool side into less than 1.5m of water, and never dive from bridges, rocks, or other decorative features. • Check to see if the pool has a lifeguard in attendance. If so, when? • If using a water slide, ensure you and any children in your care leave a safe gap between descents and that when at the bottom move away quickly from the discharge area. • Do not use the pool if you cannot see the bottom. • Swim before eating and drinking, not immediately after. • Check what to do in an emergency. If it is not stated, ask. • Always supervise children, especially if the kid’s pool is close to the main pool or is a section of the main pool. • Do not swim at night (or when the pool is closed). • If you or anyone in your party is or has been ill recently with a stomach upset or diarrhoea, avoid using the pool. • Remember to always use adequate protection against the sun’s rays. SEA/BEACHES At times, especially during rough conditions, dangerous currents may be present. Please be aware that not all beaches will have a lifeguard in attendance. Please follow the flag warning signals available on most beaches and swim in the designated areas. Be especially careful if you have small children. Tips to aid safety when using the sea and beaches: • Familiarise yourself with the local flag warning system. • See local advice on the safest beaches. • Check to see if the beach has a lifeguard in attendance. • Swim parallel to the shore, within your depth. • Beware of local conditions (e.g. tides, winds, currents) seek advice. • Supervise children at all times. • Swim before eating and drinking, not immediately after. • Do not swim at night. • Find out what the appropriate emergency procedure is. • Beware of any “zones” for power boats, jet skis etc. • Remember to always use adequate protection against the sun’s rays. SPORT AND ACTIVITY Adequate travel insurance is essential. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is suitable and adequate for your particular needs. Please therefore ensure that the insurance policy you/members of your party have is suitable and adequate for your particular needs and will cover you in the event of a sports/activity accident.
