Winter Sports & Travel Insurance
You must organise your own travel insurance. Sunshine World strongly recommends getting insurance for the entire duration of your stay which covers you for cancellation, curtailment and winter sports including mountain rescue and repatriation.
1. Contract. Your contract will be with Sunshine World Holidays LTD, who are responsible for ground arrangements only (unless flights are booked through Sunshine World) and who are committed to a policy of fair-trading. By signing the booking form you will be accepting the terms and conditions for yourself. All members of the group must sign a copy of the booking form. Families need only have the head of the family sign accepting the terms and conditions for themselves and all members of their family.
2. Reservations. Bookings are accepted in writing on our booking form, together with your deposit of 50% of full price. Bookings can be accepted by phone or fax using a payment card or cheque and on the basis your booking form is submitted to Administration and Bookings within three working days.
3. Confirmation and Payment. Within 14 days of receiving your completed, signed booking form and 50% deposit, we will send you confirmation and an invoice with details of your holiday. This should be carefully checked to ensure your requirements are met. It is on despatch of our confirmation of booking and invoice that a contract is made between us incorporating these booking conditions. Your balance is due 10 weeks before departure and no reminder will be sent. If you fail to pay on time, Sunshine World Holidays LTD will be entitled to cancel the booking and cancellation fees will be payable.
4. Alterations to the booking. If you wish to alter the booking after the contract is formed, we will do our best to arrange this. An amendment fee of £30 per person will be made for each detail of the booking changed.
5. Cancellation by you. All changes and cancellations must be made in writing and received at our office before the departure date. All cancellations made more than 14 days before departure are subject to a charge of 50% of the total holiday cost. No refund is available where a cancellation is made less than 14 days before departure date. If your cancellation falls within your insurance policy terms, then the insurance company will refund any such charges to you.
