Bookings on our platforms
Destination Travel does not require registering with us in order to book and/or buy products and services, however this facility and/or requirement may be an option for some of our service providers (such as hotel or airline loyalty schemes). Destination Travel does not retain any information you provide to third party service providers. Destination Travel does not accept any responsibility of any abuse of your personal information provided to such service providers. It is your obligation to protect the integrity of your personal information which you provide them, even if they linked to our website. Such transactions are not taking place on our platform, but theirs, so any loss, including financial, experienced is between you and the third party service provider. If you believe your personal information has been compromised by a failure by a third party linked to us, we request you inform us immediately, via our Contact us page.
When users make changes to bookings from service providers via any Destination Travel platform the third party provider is responsible for undertaking all changes. Any refunds or extra costs owed or entitled to you are between you and the third party provider, not Destination Travel and its platforms. The terms and conditions connected with bookings made via a Destination Travel platform are determined by the third party provider, and Destination Travel takes no responsibility for them.
In some jurisdictions legal recourse to dispute resolution is possible, such as in the European Union however these do not involve Destination Travel. In almost all cases Destination Travel is a re-seller of third party services, so your contract is between yourself and this provider. Within the European Union ticket purchases may be disputed via the European Online Dispute Resolution Platform (ODR Platform). Disputes over non-airline purchases, may be covered by other consumer protection legislation but this depends on the nature of the dispute and jurisdictions involved. It is not Destination Travel’s responsibility to provide legal advice regarding dispute resolution. Where you have a legitimate dispute against a third party, Destination Travel would like to know about it and we may terminate our relationship with that service provider if we believe your complaint is legitimate, however Destination Travel denies all responsibility for any claimed liability resulting from a dispute.
Destination Travel’s third party service providers may accept or request different payment options including, but not limited to, credit and debit cards. Payment options may vary according to where you are booking the service, the particular service being booked and other variable factors. When you use one of the payment options available from a service provider whether credit/debit card or alternative payment method, you agree that you are the authorized person to use such card or payment method and you take responsibility for the booking. Destination Travel or our third party service providers retain the right to verify the payment by whichever legal method deemed necessary.
