HIMELY TRAVEL SERVICES’ LEGAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS 

Application

All Quotations provided by or Bookings made with and/or all services rendered by or on behalf of Himely Travel Services (‘the Booking Agent') are subject to these terms and conditions (‘the Conditions'). 

The Client and authority

The person requesting such Quotations or making such Booking or to whom any service is rendered, is deemed to have read and accepted the Conditions and to have the authority to do so on behalf of the person in whose name the Quotation or Booking is requested and/or provided and/or the person to whom the services are rendered (collectively referred to as ‘the Client').

Third party service providers

The Booking Agent provides Clients with accommodation bookings and/or other services either itself or acting as agents for principals engaged in or associated with the Travel Industry, such as Villa Property Owners (‘collectively referred to as ‘the Principal'). The Booking Agent represents the Principal as agents only and accordingly accepts no liability for any loss, damage, injury, illness, harm or death which any Client may suffer as a result of any act or omission on the part of or the failure of the Principal to fulfill their obligations, whether in relation to travel arrangements, accommodation bookings or otherwise. The contract in use by the Principal (which is often constituted by the Rental Agreement issued by the Principal), shall constitute the sole contract between the Principal and the Client and any right of recourse the Client may have, will be solely against the Principal. The Booking Agent will provide the identity, terms and conditions of all the Principals relevant to the service being provided for the Client's booking. It is the Client's responsibility to familiarize itself with such terms and conditions (‘the Principal's Conditions').

Booking, deposit & reservation

Once the Client has filled in the travel enquiry form on the Booking Agent's Web site, responded to an advertisement verbally or in writing or via e-mail or the Internet or has, without reference to any of the aforesaid, asked for more details (collectively referred to as ‘the Enquiry'), about a particular Villa, Apartment, destination, trip, tour or mode of travel (collectively referred to as ‘the Proposed Travel Arrangements') the Booking Agent, will prepare and provide the Client with an estimated booking cost (online, by hand, telefax or e-mail) (‘the Estimate Booking Cost'). Upon the Client's written confirmation that the facts and information contained in the Estimated Booking Cost is correct, the Booking Agent will prepare a quotation for the Proposed Travel Arrangements (‘the Quotation'). Full payment of the total Quotation (‘the Price') as specified in the Quotation is required in order to confirm reservations with Principals (‘the Booking'). The Booking Agent will not confirm any reservation if the full payment has not been received. Once the Booking has been completed, the Client will be supplied with a message that will contain the final details of their Booking (‘the Booking Confirmation Form'). If full payment is not received by the applicable date, the Supplier will automatically cancel the reservations. 

Destination selection

The Client acknowledges that it has selected the itinerary and destination(s) constituting the Booking based on information gleaned from the Internet. It also acknowledges that the booking has been compiled and is managed and up-dated by the Principal over which the Booking Agent has no control. Accordingly, the Booking Agent cannot and does not guarantee that the itinerary and/or any destinations will comply in whole or in part with such information gleaned from the Internet. Any right of recourse in that regard will be against the Principal.

Payment and payment terms

Himely Travel Services’ Standard Payment Terms are a 50% deposit on booking and the balance of payment at least six weeks prior to arrival. If the payment is not received on time, the booking may be cancelled by the Supplier. Amendment Fees of R500 per amendment will be charged. The payment terms may vary depending on the Individual suppliers; this is advised in the individual Booking Form. Individual Suppliers may have additional charges, which are advised in the Booking Form. All payments are strictly non-refundable. Therefore, clients are advised that it is essential that they have adequate Travel Insurance.

Prices

Prices are quoted in local currency and, where applicable, converted at the daily exchange rate. Until the Booking Agent has received payment of the Price in full, it reserves the right to charge any fluctuations to the Client's account and the Client undertakes to pay for any such fluctuation on demand. The onus will be on the Client to check that there have been no changes in the Price prior to making full and final payment. However, once payment of the Price in full is received, the Price is guaranteed. Should the Client be part of a group booking and the group number deviates from the number required for the Booking, the Principal may reserve the right to re-cost the Price and raise a surcharge. Should any Client refuse to accept and pay such surcharge, it may result in the Principal canceling the Booking and retain any payment made (The Booking Agent will be entitled to retain any service fees charged). 

Service Fee

Applicable Service Fees are charged to cover the costs incurred by Himely Travel Services in servicing the Clients travel arrangements. These are indicated on the Booking Form.

The Client indemnifies and holds harmless the Booking Agent, its employees and agents accordingly.

Insurance

It is strongly advised that all Clients take out adequate insurance cover such as cancellation due to illness, accident or injury, personal accident and personal liability, loss of, or damage to baggage and sports equipment (Note that is not an exhaustive list). The Booking Agent will not be responsible or liable if the Client fails to take adequate insurance cover or at all. It shall not be obligatory upon the Booking Agent to effect insurance for the Client except upon detailed instructions given in writing and all insurance effected by the Booking Agent pursuant to such instruction will be subject to such exceptions and conditions as may be imposed by the insurance company or underwriters accepting the risk, and the Booking Agent shall not be obliged to obtain separate cover for any risks so excluded. Should the insurers dispute their liability for any reason; the Client will have recourse against the insurers only.

Clients are advised to check the requirements with the Booking Agent before traveling. The Booking Agent will endeavor to assist the Client but such assistance will be at the Booking Agent's discretion and the Client acknowledges that in doing so, the Booking Agent is not assuming any obligation or liability and the Client indemnifies the Booking Agent against any consequences of non-compliance. It is the Client's duty to familiarize him/herself with the inherent dangers of and mental and/or physical condition required for the Proposed Travel Arrangements.

Malaria and other tropical diseases

Cancellation

In the event of Client canceling the Booking, the Booking Agent shall have the right either to claim an amount, or to retain an amount of the payment and claim damages suffered by the Booking Agent. The Principals may reserve the right to cancel any service before departure, in which event the entire payment will be refunded to the Client without any further obligation on the part of the Booking Agent. The Booking Agent will charge a fee for processing the request for refund. (Clients should also refer to the cancellation provisions contained in the Principal's Conditions or Web site. Principals may charge cancellation fees over and above those stated below): 

Unscheduled extensions

In the unlikely event of there being unscheduled extension to the final itinerary caused by flight re-scheduling, flight delays, bad weather, strikes or any other cause which is beyond the control of the Booking Agent, its agents or the Principal, it is understood that expenses relating to these unscheduled extensions (hotel accommodation etc) will be for the Client's account. 

Tour Itinerary variations & transfers

While every effort is made to keep to the final itinerary, Principals and/or the Booking Agent reserves the right to make changes for the Client's convenience e.g. in some cases, weather conditions can necessitate an alteration in the itinerary and this does not constitute any reason for a refund.
