    • We advise you to review the supplier’s Terms and Conditions and any relevant Product Disclosure Statements carefully before confirming your booking.
    • We will not change any of our terms and conditions which apply to your booking after it has been made by us unless these changes are agreed with you.

  1. CAPACITY IN WHICH WE ACT
    • In all instances we act as a booking agent only. As a booking agent we are contracted by various third parties to sell and make reservations on their behalf.
    • Any services we provide to you are collateral to that agency relationship. Our obligation to you is to (and you expressly authorise us to) make travel bookings on your behalf such as, but not limited to, flights, accommodation, tours, cruise, coach and rail services, and to arrange relevant contracts between you and our various service providers.
    • We exercise care in the selection of reputable suppliers, but we are not ourselves a provider of travel products and services, and have no control over, or liability for, the services provided by third parties.
    • All bookings are made on your behalf subject to the terms and conditions, including conditions of carriage and limitations of liability, imposed by these service providers.
    • We can provide you with copies of the relevant service provider terms and conditions upon request though any terms that are critical to the booking, will be relayed to you during the quotation or booking process.
    • Travel packages advertised under ‘The Travel Squad’ brand/logo, may include multiple products provided by multiple suppliers to demonstrate possible travel itineraries purely for your convenience, however each component of the package will be treated independent of each other and the specific terms & conditions of each product supplier will apply. We will not be responsible if one or more travel products or services are changed or cancelled by a supplier which has resulting impacts on other components of the itinerary. We will however seek to find a suitable alternative or assist you with any travel insurance claim.
    • Your legal rights in connection with the provision of travel products and services are against the specific travel provider and, except to the extent a problem is caused by fault on our part, are not against us. Specifically, if for any reason (excluding fault on our part) any travel service provider is unable to provide the services for which you have contracted, your rights are against that provider and not against us.

  1. TRAVEL, ACCOMMODATION & SERVICE DESCRIPTIONS
    • The description of travel products and services advertised on our website, other marketing channels, or advised by a travel consultant, is based solely on information provided to us by the suppliers of any such travel products and services.
    • We accept responsibility to present the information provided to us by our clients fairly and accurately. We do not accept responsibility for errors in description based on the information provided to us by the owners of such products and services and do not guarantee the accuracy of any such information.
  1. TRAVEL DOCUMENTS
    • Travel documents are (without limitation) cruise or airline tickets, accommodation, tour or travel vouchers, or any other document (whether in electronic form or otherwise) that confirm an arrangement with a service provider.
    • Travel documents may be subject to certain conditions and/or restrictions including (without limitation) being non-refundable, non-changeable and subject to cancellation and/or amendment fees.
    • Travel documents cannot be transferred to another person to use. All airline tickets must be issued in the name of the passport/photo identity holder.
    • An incorrect name on a booking may result in an inability to use that booking and the booking being cancelled. First, middle and surnames on the booking must be exactly the same as your passport. If the spelling is different to your passport/photo identification – PLEASE ADVISE US IMMEDIATELY.
    • In the case of an air ticket requiring to be reissued due to a name correction, a fee will be incurred. In some cases you may have to pay more for your ticket if there are no seats available to rebook in the original booking class or fare type. Any additional cost in fare or fees will be the responsibility of the passenger if we have not been informed of the correct name and spelling at the time of booking.
    • Please review your travel documentation carefully and advise us immediately of any errors in names, dates or timings.
    • We recommend that you print a copy and retain your travel documents as provided to you by a consultant or the website.
    • You must ensure that you are aware of any health requirements and recommended precautions relevant to your travel and ensure that you carry all necessary vaccination documentation, as per section 14.2.
    • All travellers must have a valid passport for international travel and many countries require at least six months validity from the date of return and some countries require a machine-readable passport as per section 14.3.
    • Electronic Cruise Documentation (eDoc) – Many cruise lines have now moved to eDoc cruise tickets or documentation. This means you may get your documentation as an attachment to an email for you to print or store electronically. As this may be sent to you directly by the cruise line you will not receive a wallet with paper tickets or a ‘cruise booklet’ as in the past. Your online Cruise Registration must be completed before the Cruise Line will release your documents. Failure to complete this will cause delay. Once complete, the cruise line will release your documentation 10-20 days prior to your departure date from Australia. It is unnecessary to chase documents with your cruise consultant prior to this, as all cruise lines issue documentation in ‘departure date’ order. Your cruise consultant or the cruise line will inform you once your documents are issued and ready.
  1. TRAVEL ADVICE
    • General
      • It is the responsibility of the client to ensure they are aware of the latest travel advice issued by the Australian Government and the latest health information for the destinations they are travelling. Information can be found at:
      • The department of foreign affairs and trade:
      • Travel Doctor:
      • You can also register your travel plans with DFAT, so that you may be more easily contacted in an emergency.
    • Health
      • We recommend that you consult with your local doctor, or specialist vaccination clinic before commencing your travel. General health advice for the destination you wish to visit is also available from DFAT (see smarttraveller.gov.au).
      • It is your responsibility to ensure that you are aware of any health requirements and recommended precautions relevant to your travel, and to ensure that you obtain and carry all necessary vaccination documentation. In some cases, failure to present required vaccination documentation (e.g. proof of vaccination) may result in you being denied entry into a country.
    • Passports & 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 in any countries visited.
      • 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.
      • When assisting with an international travel booking, we will assume that all travellers on the booking have a valid Passport. If this is not the case, let us know prior to making your booking.
      • Please advise your consultant if you are not traveling on an Australian or New Zealand passport. You may require a returning resident visa.
      • Non- Australian passport holders should contact their own government’s Embassy or Consulate.
      • Any previous criminal convictions or drink driving offences may require a visa application prior to travel.
      • Any fines, penalties, payments or expenditures incurred as a result of such documents not meeting the requirements of those authorities will be your sole responsibility (except to the extent caused by fault on our part).

        • Visa for TURKEY
        • The Turkish Consulate has advised that the stamp / sticker visa on arrival will be abolished from10 April 2014 and will be completely replaced by the eVisa application process. Visitors to Turkey will be required to apply for a visa online via the Turkish Government website evisa.gov.tr prior to travel or they may be refused entry. If you enter a Turkish port by cruise ship and are staying less than 72hrs you should check if a visa is required.
