Our bookings are tailored to your requirements and so bookings are subject to availability. Before a booking is confirmed, full details of your proposed trip will be advised to you by email (or by post on your request). Once you have confirmed to us that you happy with the proposal, we will proceed to take payment and issue you with a booking confirmation. Please check that all names are the same as the relevant passport, that dates and timings and all other elements of your trip are correct. Where this is not done and there is an unreasonable delay in notifying any apparent discrepancies in the confirmed arrangements, you will be responsible for any additional charges that may arise as a result of alterations that have to be made to the booking.
A binding contract between us and you (the lead name on the booking) is only formed when we issue our booking confirmation (by email or post) after having received payment from you, in cleared funds, of either the required deposit or the full price of your holiday (depending on when the booking is made relative to the intended departure date). By making the booking you accept that you have the authority to bind all members of your party to these terms and conditions of booking and you take responsibility as the lead name on the booking to make payment and to receive documentation on behalf of your party.
2. PRICE AND PAYMENT
We reserve the right to alter the prices of any trips shown on our website or set out in our written proposal to you at any time before your booking is confirmed. You will be advised of the current price before your booking is confirmed. Prices quoted are EURO prices based on daily currency exchange rates current at the time of quotation.
The price of your experience is inclusive of taxes and where applicable, all additional fees and charges and other costs. Where any costs cannot be reasonably calculated by us in advance of the conclusion of your contract, we will give you an indication at the time of booking of the type of additional costs which you may still have to bear.
In all cases, in order to make a booking, a deposit will be required. The amount of deposit varies depending on the nature of your trip and will be confirmed to you before you book.
It is essential and a condition of booking with Morocco Getaways, that you take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy to cover you before, during and after your trip. We will not be responsible for any costs incurred by you or any member of your party before, during or after your trip as a consequence of inappropriate or insufficient travel insurance being purchased.
4. PASSPORTS, VISAS AND HEALTH FORMALITIES
We will provide you with general information relating to passport, visa and health formalities relevant to citizens of the destinations included in your trip, including approximate periods for obtaining visas. Most countries now require passports to be valid for at least 6 months after your return. Please take special note that for all air travel within the British Isles, airlines require photographic identification of a specific type. Please ask us for details. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to ensure that you and your party will be able to obtain, and will be in possession of, all necessary travel documents/visas in advance of travel. It will also be your responsibility to ensure that you and all members of your party will be able to comply with all health formalities for the destination concerned. We will not accept liability if you or any member of your party is refused entry onto any transport or into any country due to failure on your/their part to carry correct documentation or to comply with relevant health formalities.
Whilst we make every effort to ensure that the information on our website is accurate and not misleading, it may have been published many months before your travel experience takes place and may be subject to change. We reserve the right to make changes to the website and any information it contains at any time. We will confirm all details of your experience in your booking confirmation. For changes that we may make after we have issued your booking confirmation, please see Section 7 below.
6. AMENDMENT, TRANSFERS AND CANCELLATION BY YOU
Any cancellation or amendment request must be sent us in writing to our postal address or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and will not take effect until received by us.
Please note that in many cases, scheduled airlines apply 100% cancellation charges and will not permit name changes or other booking alterations to be made (accordingly they may treat a transfer as a cancellation and re-booking).
If you and/or any member of your party are considering altering your booking in any way, please contact our staff, who will notify you of the applicable charges.
You, or any member of your party, may cancel your travel arrangements at any time before the start of the package. The cancellation will take effect from the date that we receive written notification of cancellation from you. We will accept notification of cancellation by email, on the understanding that you agree and accept that where you are shown as the sender of the email, we will be entitled to assume that such email has been sent by you.
Cancellations may incur cancellation charges depending on how much notice you give us prior to the departure date. Cancellation charges represent our reasonable costs of terminating your contract based on the time of termination of the contract before the the start of the package and the expected cost savings and income from alternative deployment of the travel services where available.
Please note that if the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim some or all of the cancellation charges. Please speak to your insurance provider.
In all cases, where cancellation results in us making a refund payment to you, such payment will be made to you as the lead and contracting member of your party, or any substitute lead and contracting member of the party (see above). This will be the case regardless of which members of the party make the deposit and balance payments for the booking. All refunds will be paid within 14 days of cancellation.
Cancellation charges will not be applied where you cancel due to Unavoidable and Extraordinary Circumstances (as defined in section 7(c) below) occurring at the place of destination or its immediate vicinity and significantly affecting the performance of the package or your transport to the destination. In this event you will be entitled to a full refund of any payments made for the package but will not be entitled to any additional compensation.
7. AMENDMENTS AND CANCELLATION BY US
(a) Amendments before departure
We may have to make amendments to your proposed trip and may do this at any time and we will advise you of any changes that affect your booking before we issue the booking confirmation.
Occasionally, it is necessary for us to make changes after your booking has been confirmed. We are entitled to make minor changes to your booking provided that we inform you.
If, before the start of the package, we are constrained by circumstances beyond our control to alter significantly any of the main characteristics of the travel services specified in Schedule 1 of the Package Travel Regulations, or cannot fulfil your special requirements that we have accepted in your booking confirmation, (“Significant Change”), we will notify you as soon as possible. Within the period that we shall specify in the notice, you may either: (i) accept the proposed changes; or (ii) terminate the contract without paying a cancellation charge.
If you choose to terminate your contract, you may accept a substitute package where we are able to offer this to you.
Where the changes to your contract or the substitute package offered result in a package of lower quality or cost, you are entitled to an appropriate price reduction.
If you terminate the contract and do not accept a substitute package, you will be entitled to a full refund within 14 days after the contract is terminated. In addition, compensation may be payable for any lack of conformity in accordance with Sections 8 and 9.
(b) Cancellation by us
Whilst we hope we will never have to cancel your trip, this is very occasionally necessary and we reserve the right to do so. We will do our best to offer alternative arrangements of a comparable or better quality. If we can only offer a lower quality, we will offer give you an appropriate price reduction. If we cannot offer you an alternative, we will give you a full and prompt refund of the price of the trip. We will also be liable to pay appropriate compensation pursuant to Section 9 unless:
we are prevented from performing the contract because of Unavoidable and Extraordinary Circumstances and we notified you without undue delay before the start of the package; or
we have to cancel because the minimum number of persons enrolled for the package is smaller than the minimum number stated in the contract and we notify you within the following time periods.
In the case of trips lastings more than 6 days, no later than 20 days before the start of the package;
In the case of trips lasting between 2 and 6 days, no later than 7 days before the start of the package;
In the case of trips lasting less than 2 days, no later than 48 hours before the start of the package.
(c) Unavoidable and Extraordinary Circumstances
Unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances means a situation beyond the control of a party the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures had been taken by that party (“Unavoidable and Extraordinary Circumstances”).

We are liable to you for the performance of the travel services included in the package travel contract (whether those services are to be performed by us or by other travel service providers) – see Section 9.
If after departure you perceive any lack of conformity (as defined in Section 9 below) during the performance of your package travel contract, you must inform us without undue delay. We will remedy any lack of conformity within the reasonable period that you require, unless that is impossible or entails disproportionate costs, taking in account the extent of lack of conformity and the value of travel services affected. If we do not remedy the lack of conformity within the reasonable period you require, you shall be entitled to an appropriate price reduction for any period of lack of conformity and to appropriate compensation for any damage sustained as a result, in accordance with Section 9.
If we are unable to provide a significant proportion of your trip whilst you are away, we will offer you suitable alternative arrangements of, where possible, equivalent or higher quality than those specified in the contract, at no extra cost to you, for the continuation of your trip. Where the proposed alternative arrangements result in a package of lower quality than that specified in the package travel contract, we shall grant you an appropriate price reduction.
You may reject the proposed alternative arrangements only if they are not comparable to what was agreed in the package travel contract or the price reduction granted is inadequate.
If a lack of conformity substantially affects the performance of the package and we fail to remedy the lack of conformity with the reasonable period you specify, you may terminate the contract without paying a cancellation fee and where appropriate request a price reduction and/or compensation for damages in accordance with Section 9.
If we are unable to make alternative arrangements or you reject the proposed alternative arrangement according to the above conditions, where appropriate, you are entitled to a price reduction or compensation for damages, or both, in accordance with Section 10 without terminating the travel contract.
If your package contract includes transport, we will also provide you repatriation with equivalent transport without undue delay and at no extra cost to you.
9. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU: PRICE REDUCTION AND COMPENSATION FOR DAMAGES
We are responsible for the performance of the travel services included in your package travel contract and we will use reasonable skill and care to provide the services or facilities that form part of your booking with us.

You will be entitled to an appropriate price reduction for any period during which there was a lack of conformity, unless we prove that the lack of conformity is attributable to you.

attributable to you;
attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of travel services included in the package contract and is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or
due to Unavoidable and Extraordinary Circumstances.
Except in cases involving death, illness or injury, damage caused intentionally or negligently, in any other case where liability may not be limited by law, or in cases which are subject to the international conventions referred to below, our liability for compensation shall be limited to a maximum of three times the total price of your package (not including amendment charges). We shall have no liability for any loss of business or profits or any other indirect loss or damage.
Our liability to you (and your party) is also limited in accordance with the international conventions set out below as if we were a carrier under the relevant conventions as applicable. These conventions limit the amount of compensation that passengers can claim for death, injury, illness, and loss, damage, delay in the transportation of luggage and personal belongings.

The relevant international conventions are:
a) in relation to carriage by air, the Montreal Convention;
b) in respect of carriage by rail, the Berne Convention; and
c) in respect of carriage by sea, the Athens Convention.
Whether or not we are liable for compensation, we will always provide you with appropriate assistance without undue delay if you are in difficulty. This will include providing appropriate information on health services, local authorities and consular assistance, assisting you to make distance communications and helping you to find alternative travel arrangements. We may charge you a reasonable fee for such assistance if the difficulty is caused intentionally by you or through your negligence.
