These Booking Conditions apply to bookings you make by phone or by email. A contract on the terms set out in these Booking Conditions will exist as soon as we issue a Booking confirmation & INVOICE. References to “us”, “we” or “our” mean Travel Goals UK (PVT) Ltd, company number 13517620 (trading as “Travel Goals UK”). Our registered office is at 71-75 SHELTON STREET, COVENT GARDEN, LONDON, WC2H 9JQ
When finalizing your booking we, will arrange for you to enter into a contract with each of the third-party supplier(s) of your travel arrangements (such as tour operator, airline, cruise operator, accommodation provider, car hire provider and transfer provider) as specified on your booking confirmation. Your contract comes into existence once we issue the booking confirmation.
Booking with us is subject to these Booking Conditions and as well as those of the third-party suppliers who have their own terms and conditions which govern the services they provide and you’ll be bound by these. In the event of any conflict between a supplier’s terms and conditions and these booking conditions, the supplier’s term or condition that conflicts with ours will take precedence, unless it is deemed under English law to be invalid or unenforceable, in which case the relevant term or condition in our Booking Conditions will prevail. Some of our suppliers’ conditions may limit or exclude their liability to you and, because they’ll apply to your contract with us, may also limit or exclude our liability to you. Suppliers’ terms and conditions are often subject to international conventions too, which limit their (and our) liability. Copies of the relevant supplier’s terms and conditions and any applicable international conventions are available on request.
As an agent, we accept no responsibility for the acts or omissions of the suppliers or for the travel services provided by them unless we are the organiser of your package holiday under the section Package Holidays/Travel,
We combine and sell to you two or more of the travel services specified below for the purpose of the same trip or holiday, this will comprise a “Package” and we will take responsibility for the package as an “organiser” under the Package Travel Regulations as long as those travel services are: purchased together from a single visit to our website and selected by you before you agree to pay; or advertised, sold or charged by us at an inclusive or total price; or advertised or sold under the term “package” or a similar term.
Once you book a Package, we will continuously be acting as an agent or sub-agent in the way described above for this reason you will still be entering into different contracts with the Service Provider(s) or principal supplier(s) of each specific Travel Service.
Bookings may be made telephone on 0208 125 7007. All bookings are subject to availability at the time of booking and we do not guarantee that any of the travel services that we advertise, including on our website, will still be available at the time of booking and once you have made a booking request, we will confirm availability of your chosen travel services to you.
Please note: It is your responsibility to ensure that all names listed in the booking confirmation are accurate as per the passports of the travellers in your party and that the travel itinerary accords with your requirements. Changes are rarely possible once flight tickets and other travel documents are issued, and alterations may incur additional charges.
Upon receipt of all travel documents please check whether the details such as names, dates and timings towards your package are accurate and advise us immediately if there are any errors or amendments to be made. Also, please note that all flight tickets or any product supplied are non-refundable, non-changeable and non-transferable unless otherwise stated.
Once you have provided confirmation of your chosen Travel Service(s) you will be informed on producing such initial payment as is agreed by us on behalf of the Service Provider, or payment in full, including relevant fees and charges

In the event of non-payment, the booking(s) may be cancelled – please refer to the cancellation policy. It is always your liability to guarantee your balance is paid by the Balance Due Date.
We accept payment by bank transfers, debit/credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and American Express). We do not charge you a fee for using your card however, your bank or card issuer may apply an additional foreign transaction fee for non-UK registered cards.
We cannot guarantee that all pricing and any additional information on our website is accurate. Henceforth, it is always possible that despite our efforts there may be occasions when obvious errors occur such as the price or some other detail displayed being inaccurate. We and each Service Provider reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time before confirmation. We will normally check prices before confirming your booking so that, where the booking's correct price at your booking date is less than our stated price at your booking date, we will charge the lower amount. If the booking's correct price at your booking date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you by telephone or e-mail for your instructions before we confirm your booking.
In the circumstances where we confirm and process your booking where a pricing or other error is obvious and could plausibly have been recognised by you as a mistake, we may terminate the contract and refund you any sums you have paid us.
Concerning Package bookings, there are situations in which we may modify the cost of your Package. This can occur after we have sent our booking confirmation across in order to pass on to you changes in (i) the price of the carriage of passengers resulting from the cost of fuel or other power sources; (ii) the level of taxes or fees on the Travel Services included in your booking imposed by third parties other than the Service Providers, including tourist taxes, landing taxes or embarkation or disembarkation fees at ports and airports; or (iii) the exchange rates relevant to the Package.

Concerning such bookings, you appoint us to source those flights on your behalf and you are our principal. We will arrange for you to enter into a contract directly with the airline concerned, and with us.

It is required from you to reconfirm your flight details within 48 hours of departure by checking your airline's website for any travel updates, including any possible schedule changes or cancellations. If your flight time has altered, please ensure you travel to the airport with enough time to accommodate this change. Except as otherwise stated in these Terms and Conditions, if you have transfers booked you must also notify your Service Provider(s) of these changes. We accept no responsibility concerning any flight schedule changes as these are managed solely by your relevant Service Provider or airline who in turn only accept liability for any schedule changes or cancellations in line with their specific booking terms and conditions.
All documents (e.g. invoices/tickets/Insurance policies) will be sent to you by email after 72 working hours of completion of your booking.

You may have to pay any charges made by Service Providers if tickets or other documents need to be reissued.
we will assist you with any complaints and you may contact our Customer Services at [email protected]
However, as the contract(s) for your travel arrangements is between you and the principal(s) or supplier(s), any queries or concerns relating to the travel arrangements should be addressed to them in the first instance. If you have a problem with your travel arrangements whilst on holiday, this must be reported to the principal/supplier or their local supplier or agent immediately. If you fail to follow this procedure, there will be less opportunity for the principal/supplier to investigate and rectify your complaint. As a result, the amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced or you may not receive any at all.
If you wish to complain when you return home, please write to the principal/supplier. You will see the name and address plus contact details in any confirmation documents we send you. We will of course assist you with this if you wish - please contact Customer Services at [email protected].
