4. Your holiday price

1) We reserve the right to alter the prices of any of the holidays shown in our brochure. You will be advised of the current price of the holiday that you wish to book before your contract is confirmed.

2) When you make your booking you must pay a deposit of £50 per person. The balance of the price of your travel arrangements must be paid at least 8 weeks before your departure date. If the deposit and/or balance is not paid in time, we shall cancel your travel arrangements. If the balance is not paid in time we shall retain your deposit.

3)  Changes in dues, taxes or fees chargeable for services mean that the price of your travel arrangements may change after you have booked. However there will be no change within 30 days of your departure. We will absorb and you will not be charged for any increase equivalent to 2% of the price of your travel arrangements, which excludes insurance premiums and any amendment charges. You will be charged for the amount over and above that, plus an administration charge of £1 per person together with an amount to cover agents’ commission. If this means that you have to pay an increase of more than 10% of the price of your travel arrangements, you will have the option of accepting a change to another holiday if we are able to offer one (we will refund any price difference if the alternative is of a lower value), or cancelling and receiving a full refund of all monies paid, except for any amendment charges. Should you decide to cancel you must do so within 14 days from the date on your final invoice Should the price of your holiday go down due to the changes mentioned above, by more than 2% of your holiday cost, then any refund due will be paid to you. However, please note that travel arrangements are not always purchased in local currency and some apparent changes have no impact on the price of your travel due to contractual and other protection in place.

4) If you wish to pay by credit card (including AMEX) there will be a 2% surcharge on the amount paid.

5. If you change your booking

If, after our confirmation invoice has been issued and you have paid your deposit or balance, you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, for example your chosen departure date or accommodation, we will do our utmost to make these changes but it may not always be possible. Any request for changes to be made must be in writing from the person who made the booking or your travel agent. You will be asked to pay any further cost we incur in making this alteration.  You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made and you should contact us as soon as possible. Note: Certain travel arrangements (e.g. Apex Tickets) may not be changeable after a reservation has been made and any alteration request could incur a cancellation charge of up to 100% of that part of the arrangements. Note, changes in the group size may affect the total price per person due to group discounts, golf buggy costs and any other factors and charges Glencor Golf Holidays Ltd may face.

6. If you cancel your holiday

You, or any member of your party, may cancel your travel arrangements at any time. Written notification from the person who made the booking or your travel agent must be received at our offices. Since we incur costs in cancelling your travel arrangements, you will have to pay cancellation charges as follows:

Please note, some aspects of your trip may be non-refundable such as hotels with promotional non-refundable rates.

7. If we change your holiday

It is highly unlikely that any changes will be made to your holiday and any changes that do occur are usually minor. If a major change occurs you will have the option of either i) accepting the change ii) purchasing another holiday from us or iii) cancelling your holiday. In the unlikely event of an issue with your booking when arriving locally we may provide alternate accommodation/golf courses of the same standard as a means of rectifying any booking problems.

Please note, as golf courses do reserve the right to change tee times and courses a change to a booked tee time would be considered a minor change and no compensation or re-imbursement would be offered for a change in tee time or a change in golf course to a similar standard.

8. If we cancel your holiday

We reserve the right to cancel your holiday, but if we do you will be offered the choice of a full refund or a holiday of comparable standard. On no account will we cancel your holiday within 8 weeks of departure other than for reasons of force majeure or in the event that payment is not received by the due date

Force Majeure We will not pay you compensation if we have to cancel or change your travel arrangements in any way because of unusual or unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control. These can include, for example, war, riot, industrial dispute, terrorist activity and its consequences, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, epidemics and pandemics, unavoidable technical problems with transport.

Compensation If we cancel or make a major change we will pay compensation as detailed below except where the major change or cancellation arises due to reasons of force majeure. The compensation that we offer does not exclude you from claiming more if you are entitled to do so.

9. If you have a complaint

If you have a complaint during your holiday it is essential that you contact us or our local agent who will do his or her best to put things right. We are unable to consider any complains made on your return to the UK unless you have initially made such a complaint `in resort’. No complaints will be considered if they are received more than 28 days after your return to the UK. It is most unlikely that you will have any complaints as Glencor Golf Holidays Ltd put a lot of care into providing its holidays, it is most likely that any complaint can be resolved amicably.

10. Descriptions

The descriptions contained in our literature are made in good faith and believed to be correct at the time of publication. Obviously things can change subsequently and we cannot accept any liability for the unavailability, temporary or permanent of any facility not under our direct control. We would like to point out that some overseas resorts are still being developed and as such some building work may be going on. However, we do not select accommodation where such disruption is likely but we will use our best endeavours to inform you of any building work prior to your departure. Should such building work occur, however, we cannot be held liable.

We reserve the right to substitute alternative accommodation of the same or superior standard in the same resort should this become unavoidable. Please note that a small charge may be levied by some resorts for certain advertised facilities such as sports facilities etc. Images shown are as a guide only to give a general impression of the facilities. Glencor Golf Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for any errors or changes from the time of publication. All star ratings shown on our website or in any Glencor Golf documentation are our guideline star rating for each property and may differ to the actual star rating locally of the resort.

11. The accommodation

Unauthorised occupancy can lead to the whole party being forced to leave the accommodation immediately. In these circumstances reaccommodation is at the additional expense of the client. We reserve the right to terminate without compensation the holiday tenancy of any client(s) whose behaviour is causing annoyance or damage to property or persons whether employees, other clients or owners.

12. Course conditions

We cannot be held responsible for the actual playing conditions of the golf courses whether caused by course maintenance, or weather conditions etc. Golf course closure due to bad weather conditions is at the discretion of the golf course. Temporary tees and greens are non-refundable and unavoidable at times due to local weather and maintenance conditions. In the event of a course being closed during your break we will try and source a credit for a round in the future at the same course or a refund, please note neither are guaranteed and are at the discretion of each local course.

13. Handicap certificates

In some cases certificates must be produced prior to play. We recommend you take a Certificate with you to avoid any disappointment.

However we will not be liable where any failure in the performance of the contract is due to: you; or a third party unconnected with the provision of the travel arrangements and where the failure is unforeseeable or unavoidable; or unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had been exercised; or an event which we or our suppliers, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall. Our liability, except in cases involving death, injury or illness, shall be limited to a maximum of three times the cost of your travel arrangements. Our liability will also be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to

Your right to a refund and/or compensation from us is set out in clause 7. If any payments to you are due from us, any payment made to you by the airline will be deducted.

NB this clause does not apply to any separate contracts that you may enter into for excursions or activities whilst on holiday.
