If you have paid any amount to us by credit card, you agree that you will not lodge any dispute with your credit card issuer about the validity of the transaction or the provision of goods or services by us, where a service provider fails to provide a service to you for any reason. You agree that your remedy lies against that service provider and not against us, and that by lodging a dispute with your credit card issuer you will be seeking a remedy against us in breach of these terms and conditions.

If you are paying by these methods, you will need to make payment at least 5 business days prior to the actual date due for payment. You agree not to stop payment even when you cancel a booking. You agree that we may apply the proceeds of the payment to satisfy any liability you have with us, including any liability in respect of cancellation fees, before refunding the balance to you.
CANCELLATION CHARGES & OTHER SERVICE FEES
For payments made by you (other than non-refundable deposits as referred to in the “DEPOSITS, HELD BOOKINGS & FINAL PAYMENTS” clause), if you cancel the booking we are unable to provide any refund to you unless and until we receive a refund of the amounts paid by us on your behalf to third party travel service providers. Cancelled bookings will incur charges. Travel service providers are entitled to impose cancellation charges, which can be up to 100% of the amount paid to them for the relevant service, regardless of whether travel has commenced.
If we receive any refunds from travel service providers, we will pass those refunds on to you. However, you agree that we shall be entitled to retain a minimum cancellation fee of $300 per person which you agree is reasonable compensation to us for the services that we have provided and expenses incurred by us in facilitating and booking your holiday, and processing the cancellation of your holiday.
Should you default in making any payment in accordance with the agreed trading terms all monies owing to us will immediately become due and payable. We will be entitled to charge interest at the rate of 3% above the 90 day bank bill rate as set by The Reserve Bank of Australia per calendar month on all overdue amounts from the date due for payment until the date of actual payment. We reserve the right to recover from you any expense and/or costs or disbursements incurred by us in recovering any outstanding monies including debt collection agency fees and legal costs.

Reservations (even after payment of your deposit and final payment) are subject to us receiving confirmation from the service provider including ticketing from the airline provider. In the rare instance where a reservation request cannot be confirmed by the service provider, you will be offered the choice of alternative arrangements (which may be with an alternative service provider), which may be at an additional cost or alternatively a full refund provided where the service provider allows. You agree that we are not liable to you for any such additional costs.
All seating and meal requirements must be requested at the time of booking. We do not provide any guarantees in relation to these requests and they are subject to availability.

We do not accept responsibility should changes occur nor do we accept responsibility for any additional cost incurred by you to make alterations to your booking to accommodate these changes as these are beyond our control.
Many of the bonus inclusions which are incorporated into various packages have no associated costs to your package purchase price i.e. they are ‘free’ inclusions. This includes, but is not limited to, bonus inclusions such as cruises, golf, massages, day tours etc. Should you elect to cancel any component of your package there will be no refund forthcoming or any reduction in the overall package price. Additionally, should any ‘bonus’ inclusions be cancelled by an operator or any such service not be provided to you, no refund will be forthcoming nor will any additional service or compensation be provided unless offered directly to you by the service provider responsible for that service. In such circumstances that the inclusion cannot be provided for any reason, we may elect to find an alternate date, supplier or inclusion.
We strongly recommend that you obtain travel insurance. The Australian Government also strongly recommends that all travellers obtain travel insurance prior to travel. You must obtain a Product Disclosure Statement relating to the travel insurance product you are considering purchasing and should read that documentation before making any decision about whether to acquire the product.

It is your responsibility to ensure you have all required Travel Documents prior to travel. We will not be held responsible for tickets and/or documentation lost by you or a third party. Any charges associated with re-issue and re-sending of tickets and/or documentation will be at your expense. An incorrect name on a booking may result in an inability to use that booking and the booking being cancelled. Any errors in names, dates and timings on your documentation will be your responsibility. Please advise us immediately of any errors.
Passports and Visas:
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have valid passports, visas and re-entry permits which meet the requirements of immigration and other government authorities. Passports are required by all passengers travelling internationally and are always the responsibility of the passenger. Many countries require travellers to have at least six months’ validity remaining on their passports beyond the date of return, and immigration authorities may refuse entry if you arrive with less than this. Some countries require a machine readable passport.
Health requirements are the responsibility of all individual travellers. Our consultants are not qualified to advise you on vaccinations. Please contact your own doctor or a specialist vaccination clinic.
Please advise your consultant of your frequent flyer membership details for inclusion in your booking. Please check your frequent flyer program for the specific terms of your membership. We cannot guarantee that the supplier will credit you with points for your booking.

All monies paid by you to us will be the property of Ignite Holidays Pty Ltd and will be a debt due and payable to the travel service provider once the service to which the money relates has been provided, except for monies paid for flights with an IATA airline which might be held on trust for that IATA airline. You agree and acknowledge that such monies will not be held by us on trust for and on your behalf and we may hold such monies in any account as we see fit, including with our own and /or other customer monies.
I acknowledge that I am 18 years of age or older and that I understand and agree with the terms and conditions above.
