Terms & Conditions

1. Contract

Registered office of Intimate Holidays Ltd is at 145/157 St John Street, London, EC1V 4PW and the website is operated by Intimate Caribbean Holidays and are both referred to hereinafter as the “Company”. These Booking conditions govern all bookings with the Company. Any booking made or order placed by you, whether through the Company’s website or otherwise, shall be deemed an offer by you to purchase the relevant package or other holiday arrangement subject to these booking conditions. No contract between you and the Company shall come into existence until the Company accepts a payment and issues a confirmation invoice. All contracts with the Company and all matters arising from them are subject to English law and to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. The person who makes the booking accepts these conditions on behalf of all members of the party and is responsible for all payment due from the party. By submitting a booking you confirm to us that you comply with those arrangements.
2. Payments Procedures
All our products and offers are based on foreign currency required at the time of booking regardless of the product arrangements being confirmed. In the event that the Company is unable to obtain confirmation and cannot offer an alternative, a refund will be issued. The company reserves the right to pass on any charges relating to credit/debit card charges and/or returned cheques. Note that some hotels in other countries may also charge local taxes, which will not have been included in the price you have already been quoted or paid. Payment by credit/debit card can be made by Switch/Delta Cards and all major Credit Cards, with the exception of American Express {Amex} cards. We do not store credit/debit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties. Intimate Holidays Ltd reserves the right to charge you in addition for any handling fees incurred by us in relation to bookings made by credit/debit or charge cards. All relevant charges will be on your confirmation invoice and for third party credit/debit card payments we will require written authorisation to be provided by the card holder. In accordance with mail order regulations, all documents will be posted to the billing address of the credit/debit card holder and not the address of the passenger/traveller.
3. Amendments & Cancellation by you
Any amendments will be treated as a cancellation and rebooking and the cancellation charges will apply as per set out in scale below. You, or any member of your party, may cancel your travel arrangement at any time. Written notification from the person who made the booking or your travel agent on your behalf must be received at our offices. The following scale shows the minimum charges that will be applied, based on the day the written cancellation is received by us and whether documents have been issued. In certain cases cancellation charges, if incurred involuntarily, will be covered by insurance taken out at the time of booking which we strongly recommend you consider. Intimate Holidays Ltd is not authorised to provide insurance products.

4. CANCELLATION FEES

67 days or more prior to departure: Loss of Deposit

66 - 29 days prior to departure: 50%

28 - 12 days prior to departure: 75%

11 - 0 days prior to departure: 100% 


5. Cancellation by the Company
In the unlikely event that a booking has to be cancelled a full and prompt refund will be made of all monies paid to the Company and no compensation will be payable. Intimate Holidays also reserves the right to withdraw or cancel the service on offer. If the booking is cancelled before departure for any reason other than non-payment by you then you will be offered the choice of purchasing another arrangement from the Company, with the price difference payable/refundable as appropriate, or of receiving a full refund of all monies paid to the Company.
6. Force Majeure
This includes war, threat of war, riot, civil disobedience or strife, industrial dispute, terrorist activity, natural or industrial disaster, fire, ash cloud, adverse weather conditions, level of water in rivers, technical or maintenance problems with transfer, unforeseen operational decisions of air carriers such as changes of schedule, or any unforeseeable or unavoidable event beyond the Company’s control.
7. Pricing Policy
Prices displayed on our website are subject to availability and we reserve the right to alter them, you will be advised of the current price of the holiday that you wish to book before your contract is confirmed. While every effort is made to avoid surcharges, the right is reserved to pass on any cost increase levied by the suppliers. A non- refundable and non-transferable deposit of £100 per person is payable at the time of booking and the balance paid 10 weeks prior departure. If you book within the 10 weeks of your travel arrangements, we will then require the full payment at the time of booking. If for some reason the balance is not paid the company shall retain your deposit. In some cases you may be asked to pay the balance earlier, this is purely due to our commitments to suppliers; you will be advised accordingly at the time of booking. Prices may only be changed to reflect government action, increase in transportation costs (e.g. airfares and cost of fuel), changes in duty and taxes (including VAT) or fees payable for services (e.g. landing taxes or embarkation/disembarkation fees at ports and airports or to reflect fluctuations in exchange rates. In all cases the Company will absorb an amount equivalent to 2% of the invoice price (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges). Only amounts in excess of the 2% will be passed to you and should this figure exceed 10% of the invoice price due to the Company (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges) you will be entitled to cancel the booking and receive a full refund of all monies paid (excluding insurance premiums and amendment charges). If you decide to cancel in these circumstances you must do so within 14 days of the issue date on the surcharge invoice. The Company will not impose any surcharge within 14 days of departure.
8. Complaints
If a problem occurs, whilst you are abroad, you must inform the relevant supplier (e.g. hotel, tour operator, car rental company, airline) immediately so that the matter can be put right. If the supplier cannot resolve the problem to your satisfaction, at the time, you must also contact the Company’s Customer Service Department immediately by telephoning +44 (0)20 8660 6753, and by email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) so that the Company is given the opportunity to help. In the event that a complaint cannot be resolved at the time, you must write within 28 days of your return to the Company’s customer relations manager quoting your original booking reference and giving all relevant information. Failure to take these steps will hinder the Company’s ability to resolve the problem and/or investigate it fully and in consequence, any right to compensation you may have will be extinguished or, at the very least, substantially reduced.

Passport, Visa requirements and other immigration issues are your responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant Embassies and/or Consulates.

If you fail to do so, you will be solely responsible for any cost, loss or damage which you or the Company incurs as a result of your failure to obtain such entry requirements. In addition all British Passport holders are required to have a current ESTA {Electronic System for Travel Authorization} if you are travelling to or transiting through the United States of America. Other passport holders may require additional/different authorization.
10. Behaviour
It will be your responsibility to ensure that you and the members of your party do not misbehave in any way which causes offence danger to others or risks damage to property belonging to others. In such circumstances all suppliers (e.g. hotel managers, airline pilots) and the Company, we have the right to terminate arrangements made on your behalf, in which case the Company’s responsibility to you ceases immediately and there can be no refunds, no payment of compensation and no reimbursement of any cost or expenses you may incur as a result. Further, you will be liable to reimburse the Company for any expenses whatsoever it incurs as a result of your behaviour.

The contract will be with yourself and the local operator should you decide to book any tour or excursion, and the Company will not be held responsible if anything shall go wrong.
12. Our liability to you
