Services we provide
We are a travel agent and, in that capacity, we offer for sale to you various products and/or services on behalf of our Principals viz. airlines, other transport operators, hotels and other accommodation providers, tour operators and all other principal suppliers. These are referred to throughout as “the Principal’s”.
Our services consist of arranging and co-ordinating the services offered by the Principals. We are instrumental in bringing about a direct contractual relationship between you, the customer, and the Principals.
We undertake to perform our services with reasonable care and skill but we cannot and do not guarantee the performance of the functions offered by the Principals and we will not be liable in the event that you suffer loss, injury or disappointment by reason of any acts or failings of any Principal. In any such case your remedy will lie against the Principal.
All prices are subject to change. Some instances, which may change pricing, are currency fluctuations or changes in airline rulings. Your prices are guaranteed however when full payment has been received.
Our prices may include booking or service fees. Our booking and service fee are displayed on our website.
A NZD200.00 non-refundable deposit is required per traveller. Other operators may also require additional deposits.
All prices are for payment made by cash, eftpos or cheque. If you wish to pay by credit card, please ask your consultant, as a fee may apply. Travelworld reserves the right to pass on any fees incurred in collecting late or overdue payments.
Travel insurance is strongly recommended. Travel insurance not only covers your health and belongings while you are away but it also covers loss of deposits and cancellation fees. It should be taken out when the booking is made. There are several different policies available to suit all travellers to all destinations. Please ask your Travelworld expert.
Frequent Flyer programmes
Please advise us of your membership number, if you are a member of any airline frequent flyer/mileage membership programme. Retain your boarding passes and copies of tickets for point verification against your statement in case the airline does not capture your membership data correctly. Without these, you may be unable to claim points.
Cancellation and amendments
With most files, we do not charge to do amendments while developing the bookings to suit your requirements. Once reservations are confirmed, cancellation fees and/or amendment fees will apply. If you do have to cancel your reservations, every effort is made to minimize any fees incurred.
All arrangements are subject to the supplier’s transport /accommodation/tour provider regulations and conditions detailed on tickets, vouchers, travel brochures, at accommodation premises, on transport vehicles, or as advised at the time of booking.
A valid passport is required to travel internationally (some countries insist the validity be for at least six months beyond the dates of your visit). You are responsible for ensuring your passport is current and able to be used for travel. If you would like our advice on this, we will need to see your passport (just scan or take a photo of it and email the image to us.)
It is imperative that your name as shown on your airline tickets matches exactly your name as shown in your passport. If we have not been able to sight your passport and verify this ourselves then we rely entirely on you to check this. Please check the name on your passport carefully before advising us of name details for your tickets. Getting this wrong can be serious. Airlines consider it a security risk and will often refuse to carry passengers whose tickets do not match their passports. Re-issuing tickets to fix incorrect names can also be expensive. You are responsible for all costs incurred if we have to correct the name on your tickets.
Baggage allowances vary depending on the airline you’re flying on and the fare type. Please check with your Travelworld expert for the accurate baggage allowance for your travel plans.
We recommend that you confirm your flight with the local airline office at least 3 days prior to scheduled departure. Failure to reconfirm may result in the cancellation of some reservations. Also check reporting and flight departure times.
Visa and documentation responsibilities
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the appropriate documentation including visas. We are happy to assist you to determine visa requirements wherever possible.
Please note that New Zealand passport holders do not require an Australian visa unless they have a criminal record or have a serious or contagious medical condition (eg Tuberculosis).
To visit most popular destinations, no vaccinations are required. However, for some unique, tropical, or adventure destinations, there may be the need for vaccinations. Please check with a Travelworld expert or your doctor.
