11. Booking conditions for Pole Camp Corfu 2017
Our agreement with you
We are Polesilks Limited and our Agreement with you sets out what you are legally entitled to expect from us when you buy our services. Those services are as advertised by us but maybe subject to change at any time.
11.1. Your Travel Booking
You must be 18 years old to book and travel on our Corfu Pole Camp with us and take up the offers advertised by us if they are still available.
We will confirm the booking there and then, and set aside your chosen accommodation dates. Next, we will send you a confirmation as to the details of your holiday and confirm the details. Following the confirmation, we will send by email to you a Booking Email within 5 days. If any detail is not correct it is your responsibility to tell us immediately. If there is an obvious error on the confirmation email we reserve the right to correct it as soon as we become aware of it, but we will do this within 7 days of issuing the pro-forma Invoice If any of these changes are not acceptable then you will be entitled to a full refund.
11.2. The Price You Pay
All prices we advertise are accurate at the date shown on line, with the total cost being £499.00 less your £99.00 deposit.
11.3. If we cancel your booking
We are your Booking Agent, and if we may need to cancel bookings. Where this occurs, we will ensure that you are promptly notified of any significant changes but accept no liability for the changes or costs incurred which may result.
For all other arrangements we aim to provide your holiday as booked. But if, for example, there are not enough people booked on your holiday, we may cancel it. We reserve the right to cancel your holiday in any circumstances but if we cancel your holiday you can either have a refund or accept a replacement holiday from us of equivalent or closely similar standard and price (if one is available). In either case, we will pay you compensation, using the scale shown (unless we cancel your holiday because of one of the events listed in the 'Important note - events beyond our control') and we will always refund the difference in price if the replacement holiday is of a lower standard and price. We will not cancel your holiday less than eight weeks before you go, unless this is the result of one of the events in the 'Important note - events beyond our control'.
11.4. If we change your booking details
If we are your Booking Agent, your contract with your suppliers may allow them to change your booking details. Where this occurs, we will ensure that you are promptly notified of any significant changes but accept no liability for the changes or costs incurred which may result.
For all other arrangements, we hope that we will not have to make any change to your holiday but, because our holidays are planned many months in advance, we sometimes do need to make changes. We reserve the right to do this at any time. We will let you or your travel agent know about any important changes when you book. If you have already booked, we will let you know as soon as we can, if there is time before your departure.
11.5. Our responsibility for your holiday
We will arrange for you to receive the services that make up the holiday that you choose and that we confirm. These services will be provided either directly by us or through independent suppliers contracted by us.
Except where we are a Booking Agent we are responsible for making sure that each part of the holiday you book with us is provided to a reasonable standard and as was advertised by us (or as changed and accepted by you). If any part of your holiday is not provided as described and this spoils your holiday, we will pay you appropriate compensation (see the 'Important note - events beyond our control').
We have taken all reasonable care to make sure that all the services which make up the holidays advertised by us are provided by efficient and reputable businesses. These businesses should follow the local and national laws and regulations of the country where they are provided. However, overseas safety standards are generally lower than in the UK, for example few hotels yet meet EC fire safety recommendations even in Europe.
11.6. Personal Injury
a/ We have no direct control over the way our suppliers provide their services but everyone employed or contracted by us or by our suppliers is expected to carry out their duties properly.
b/ If you or someone on your holiday booking is injured, falls ill or dies while taking part in an activity which is not part of the holiday, or you need to incur unpredictable extra expenses for which we are not liable (see 'Important note - events beyond our control') we will try to help if we can. For example, we can help by:
- providing translation services
- communicating with authorities and others in foreign resorts
- recommending foreign lawyers (if necessary)
- explaining the procedures you should follow
- telling you of any time limits
Your agreement with us
11.7. Your contract
By asking us or your travel agent to confirm your booking, you are accepting that the terms of this Agreement (and the conditions of any contract made with your suppliers) applies to your booking and your travel arrangements. You also consent to our processing personal information about you and other members of your party (see Data Protection in Important Information). Your contract with us is subject to the laws and jurisdiction of England and Wales. You may however choose the law and jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if you wish to do so.
11.8. Paying for your travel arrangements
You will be required to pay a deposit to us for each person when you book unless this is within eight weeks of departure when the full amount for the booking is payable. The deposit amount will be specified by us on our website when your booking is made. Once confirmed, the booking deposit, additional charges paid will not be refunded in the event of cancellation.
This is your only commitment until eight weeks before you go or you can pay spread the cost across 4 equal instalments of £100.00. Within two weeks of booking, we will send you a Confirmation email showing how much you owe us and the dates for the 4 equal payments if you choose to pay this way.
Should full payment not be made with in 8 weeks befre you travel date, we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled and to charge you a cancellation charge up to 100% of the total on that last Invoice.
If payment for your booking is made by credit card or PayPal a handling fee of 3.5% per transaction is made.
No charge is made for payments made by bank transfer.
11.9. If you change your booking
1 If you want to change any details of your booking or changing your point or date of departure, we will do our best to help you.
We charge an 'Amendment Fee' for each detail of the booking which you change. If you make the change more than 56 days before departure, the fee will be £25 per item per person. For any changes within 56 days of departure, appropriate cancellation charges will be applied. Please ask for details
2 The price of your new travel arrangements will be based on the prices that apply on the day you ask for the change. These prices may not be the same as when you first booked your travel arrangements.
3. Name change, and or departure details such as date and time changes are not always allowed by airlines and other transport providers whenever they are made. Whilst we will do our best to change the details of the booking, please bear in mind that most airlines and other transport providers treat name and departure detail changes as a cancellation and charge accordingly. These charges will be passed on to you. Once tickets have been issued, and sometimes even before they have been issued, any changes made to the ticket, including names or initials, will result in you having to pay for the cancelled ticket and buy a new ticket at full cost.
4 If, within 56 days of departure, you want to change to a different holiday or you wish to change your departure date to a later date, you will have to pay cancellation charges (see section 12). If the change means we must send you new tickets, we cannot give you any refund until we have received all your old travel documents, including tickets.
5 Some types of accommodation (such as apartments, or hotel rooms with reductions for three adults) are priced according to the number of people staying there. If you’re booking changes because someone in your party cancels, we will recalculate your booking cost based on the new number of people going. If fewer people share the accommodation, then the cost for them may go up. This extra cost is not a cancellation charge, and it is not covered by our recommended Insurance.
6 Except where we are your Booking Agent and subject to clause 11.3 above, if you are prevented from taking the holiday you have booked, you may transfer your booking to another person, provided you meet the following conditions, however we reserve the right to refuse a named transfer:
- You must sign an amendment/cancellation form authorising us to make the transfer;
- The person to whom you transfer your holiday booking must comply with all the terms of the existing booking;
- That person must sign a holiday booking form accepting the transfer and the terms of Our Agreement;
- That person must show us new evidence of their holiday insurance, as your policy cannot be transferred to another person (and the premium cannot be refunded);
- We will also charge amendment fees in accordance with section 11.1 above. This will be added to the new Invoice issued to that person;
- You cannot transfer a holiday booking within 21 days of departure; and
- You will remain responsible for the payment of any balance on that new Invoice should that person fail to pay it.
11.10. If you cancel your booking
If you want to cancel your booking or part of it, the lead name on your booking or your travel agent must advise us in writing at the address given in the Important Information below. The letter must be signed by the person who made the booking. To cover the cost of processing your cancellation and to compensate us for the risk that we may not be able to resell your travel arrangements, we make a cancellation charge on the scale. (Please ask for details) The person who made the booking is responsible for paying this charge. The size of the charge depends on when we receive your form or letter - the more notice you give, the less we will charge.
If you are travelling on a scheduled flight, we cannot give you any refund until we have received your old travel documents, including tickets. Please return them to us or your travel agent immediately.
Please note that for certain travel arrangements e.g. coach tours and many scheduled transport providers the cancellation charge may be higher than those shown. In certain cases a 100% cancellation fee applies as soon as the booking is made and the ticket is issued. Please ask for full details of cancellation charges at time of booking. If you have taken out our recommended Insurance policy, you may be able to claim for the cancellation charge. You will find details on the Insurance page. If you have taken out other holiday insurance, please check your policy.
11.11. If you have a complaint
If you have a complaint about your arrangements whilst away, you must immediately notify the supplier of the service in question locally. If they are unable to resolve the problem immediately, and a member of our staff is not available, you should contact us straight away by telephone/fax/email and we will endeavour to assist. If you are still not satisfied on your return home, you must write to our Customer Services Department at the address given in the Important Information, within 28 days of returning from your holiday. Please write your holiday reference number on your letter, and include your daytime and evening telephone numbers. If you do not give us the opportunity to resolve any problem locally by reporting it to the supplier, then we may not be able to deal positively with any complaint on your return. Please submit any complaint within 28 days to allow it to be investigated properly.
11.12. Conduct while travelling
We reserve the right to refuse to accept you as a customer or continue dealing with you if your behaviour is disruptive or affects other travellers or is threatening or abusive towards our staff or agents in the UK or resort, on the telephone, in writing or in person. If our resort staff believes that you could be disruptive, they can also refuse to let you proceed with your travel arrangements. If this occurs overseas then you will become responsible for your own return home and any other members of your group who cannot or will not travel without you. In any of these circumstances no refunds or compensation will be paid to you and we may make a claim against you for any costs and expenses incurred as a result of your behaviour. Criminal proceedings may also be instigated.
11.13. Your accommodation
The accommodation we arrange for you must only be used by those people named on your Confirmation Invoice (or on any Amendment Invoice issued). You are not allowed to share the accommodation or let anyone else stay there.
16-18 City Road
It is a condition of booking that you take travel insurance which must be for the consequences of your travelling and chosen activities.
Our information provision
All information provided is to the best of our knowledge and belief correct at the time of publication. However, we reserve the right to make changes to information contained on-line and will advise you of these changes at point of booking or when they are known to us. This advice will be limited to that which is fundamental to the contract or which we believe may affect the enjoyment of your holiday.
If any facility detailed in this brochure is essential to the enjoyment of your holiday, please advise us at the time of booking and we will try to advise you of the latest information. However, we are sure you will understand that at times certain advertised facilities may not be in operation and we may have no information or prior warning of such matters. Many pictures are included for their attractiveness and general relevance; those with specific notation refer to hotels or relevant features. Photographs of rooms represent the type of accommodation available, but not all rooms will be the same and room sizes, décor and furnishings will vary, particularly in older or historical buildings. From time to time hoteliers may decide to change from table service to buffet service or vice versa. We will inform you of this if advised in advance.
Early and Late Season
Due to poor volume of support and unsettled weather conditions, particularly in early and late season, it is often the case that advertised activities such as accompanied hikes or bike rides and other activities will not be available. Similarly, some advertised resort and hotel facilities such as swimming pools, sporting activities and facilities, leisure facilities, restaurants, shops, etc. may not be in operation or open. Where mentioned in our descriptions air conditioning/heating may only be turned on at certain times of day or year - as the owner or manager deems it necessary. Air conditioning is not included unless stated on the accommodation page.
Resort Development and Local Events
The noise and inconvenience of building work inevitably seems worse on holiday. Our resort staff will keep us informed about building works, especially in growing resorts. While we have no control over building works, we will do our best to tell you about any specific work going on near your accommodation, if there is time before you go on holiday.
Artist's Impression and Computer Generated Images
In some cases we have had to use an artist's impression or a computer generated image of a hotel, apartment residence or chalet. This image will be an accurate representation of the property based upon the information available to us at the time.
For any special requests email us at email@example.com when you confirm your holiday booking. We shall always do our best to meet your requirements, but no guarantee is given as this does not form part of our holiday contract with you, irrespective, of the fact that details of the request may be found on your confirmation invoice. If, however, your request is essential to your holiday arrangements, please make this known at the time of booking in order that we can ascertain whether this is possible with our supplier. This will require us contacting the supplier and confirming the request to you in writing, for which there will be an administration charge of £35.
Evening Events and Recommended Venues
The advertised events are dependent upon achieving a minimum number of participants and, therefore, some events may not always be available due to insufficient demand or, in some cases, adverse weather conditions. All mentioned restaurants and other venues featured in this brochure which are not owned by us are not under our direct control and have not been inspected by us. Therefore, any recommendation is merely an indication that these facilities have proved popular and are worthy of mention and not a personal recommendation.

For some holidays, it is appreciated that flights may leave the UK early in the morning and you may arrive in resort before midday, so your room may not be ready when you arrive.

This arrangement may restrict space.
Self Catering Accommodation
All bed linen costs and towels are included in the price. All accommodation is basically equipped with cutlery, crockery, kettle etc. Kitchenettes usually offer only 2 or 3 hot plates and not ovens, unless advertised to the contrary. Items such as toasters are not considered to be essential kitchen appliances in Europe and are, consequently, rarely provided. Beds are made up on arrival, although customers are normally expected to make their beds daily.
Please also note that 'starter' packs are rarely provided and you should, therefore, anticipate purchasing items such as milk, toilet roll, etc. on arrival (or the following day if you arrive late). Further information about what your starter pack will include will be made available up to 14 days before you depart.
Cleaning: the initial cleaning before your arrival is normally included and, unless specified in the accommodation description, is not provided during your stay.
If cleaning is provided it may not be available during public holidays.
It is in your best interests to leave the accommodation as it was found, as you may be billed for breakages, damage or leaving the accommodation unclean can be made by the local agents. Where the end of stay clean has been paid for, this will still require the kitchen to be left clean and the dishes washed and bins emptied. As deposits are sometimes held by the accommodation owner/management and not Polesilks Ltd, we cannot always become directly involved in situations or disputes that may occur. A small refundable key/damage deposit may be required in catered chalets.
Approximate timings: In order to keep prices low and service as many flights as possible, we often need to combine transfers to and from the resorts for passengers from several arriving and departing flights. This means you may incur additional waiting time on arrival at the airport and on your return, though we will do our best to keep waiting times to a minimum. Transfer times listed on resort pages, which apply to the actual journey time after leaving the airport/station, are approximate and can vary due to poor weather, traffic conditions or transfer routes.
Please note that some transfers to your resort may not be accompanied by one of our representatives and may include transferring onto a smaller vehicle to take you into the resort and your accommodation. You may require to make your own travel arrangements at an additional cost due to your flight not arriving on or close to the transfer day which for pole camp corfu is pre arranged with a local agent at around midday on arrivals and between 8am and 10am on the days of departures. For out of hours transfers we can arrange this for you at an additonal cost. Please ask for more details by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you prefer a private transfer, do ask us for a quote.

We recommend that customers contact the Embassy of the destination country for any visa requirements prior to travel. If your passport classifies you as anything other than a British citizen you should contact the relevant country embassy in the UK before you travel to see if you need a visa for your destination.
