Terms & Conditions of Booking
The word 'Organiser' means Specialty Golf Trips/Speciality Ireland Tours Limited who arranges the holiday. The word 'Consumer' means the person who buys or agrees to buy the holiday or any other person to whom you transfer the holiday that you have bought.
- The Contract
No contract shall arise until the Organiser has received confirmation of booking from the Consumer and/or received deposit or full payment for the holiday and has issued written confirmation of its acceptance.
Unless otherwise agreed and confirmed, a non- refundable deposit of 50% (or other deposit amount that has been agreed in writing) of the total cost of the holiday (per person) is required to secure and confirm your reservation. The Deposit must be paid within 7 days of payment request, after which time the Party size will be automatically reduced to reflect deposits received. In this event price per person will be adjusted accordingly to reflect revised numbers. The balance must be paid no less than 12 weeks ( or other agreed period as confirmed in writing) before the commencement date for the holiday. If it is not paid by that date, the Organiser shall have the right to cancel the holiday. If the Organiser exercises that option, or if the Consumer cancels the holiday (which cancellation must be notified in writing to the Organiser) the following cancellation charges are payable by the Consumer:
- All deposits paid are non-refundable and will be forfeited in the event of cancellation
- Cancellation within 12 to 8 weeks of the date of commencement, 60% of the cost of the holiday will be forfeited
- Cancellation within 8 weeks of the date of commencement, 100% of the cost of the holiday is forfeited. All cancellation charges apply to each person covered by a booking.
- a) Where the Consumer is prevented from proceeding with the holiday, he may transfer the booking, having first given the Organiser 4 weeks notice in writing. The transferee from the Consumer must comply with any requirements of the Organiser applicable to the holiday.
- b) A Consumer who transfers a holiday booking shall be jointly liable with the transferee to the Organiser for the payment of any balance due in respect of the holiday, and any costs incurred by the Organiser as a result of the transfer of the holiday.
It is strongly recommended that each trip participant takes out trip cancellation insurance. All claims made against the insurance policy will be made directly to the insurer. The Consumer shall be responsible for making their own insurance arrangements.
- Alterations by the Organiser
Quotations are provided on the absolute understanding that all services are subject to availability. The Organiser reserves the right to alter, curtail or cancel a holiday.
If prior to the commencement date there is a cancellation, alteration or curtailment relating to the holiday by the Organiser, then the Organiser shall if practicable, offer an alternative comparable arrangement(s) of at least a similar standard.
- Force Majeure
The Organiser will not be liable for any changes, cancellation, effect on your booking, loss or damage suffered by you or for any failure by your accommodation or service providers and/or us to perform or properly perform any of our respective obligations to you if the failure to perform or the improper performance is due to any event(s) or circumstance(s) caused by force majeure. By way of example force majeure includes, but is not limited to, war, revolution, terrorist act, closure of borders, epidemic, natural catastrophe or other causes that seriously affect both parties and in particular the place where the accommodation and service providers are located as well as our country of origin and other unforeseeable causes beyond our control. The Organiser shall be released from its obligations under this agreement where it fails to meet its obligations on account of an act of God, fire, flood or subsidence, equipment failure, power failure, work stoppage or industrial action, of any third party or any other reason beyond the control of the Organiser.
- Complaints procedure
If the Consumer wishes to make a complaint, it should be made in writing in the first instance to the Organiser. Every effort will be made by the Organiser to settle any complaint made by the Consumer. Any dispute or difference arising between the Consumer and the Organiser as to the construction of this agreement or as to any other matter or thing arising hereunder or in connection herewith will be referred to the decision of a single arbitrator appointed by The Incorporated law Society of Ireland. The Arbitration Acts 1954 and 1980 and any other statutory amendment or reinactment thereof will apply to such arbitration and the parties agree that such Arbitration shall be a condition precedent to the commencement of any action in the courts.
The failure of the Organiser to enforce at any time or any period any one or more of the terms and conditions of this agreement shall not be a waiver of them or of the right of any item subsequently to enforce all the items on condition of this agreement.
- Limitation of Liability
The Organiser shall not be responsible for any damages caused to the Consumer by the failure to perform the contract where the failure or the improper performance of the contract is due neither to any fault of the Organiser or persons acting on the Organiser's behalf nor to that of any other supplier of services. a. The Consumer shall indemnify and hold harmless the Organiser against all third party actions or claims and costs arising from any act or omission pursuant to this agreement b. The liability of the Organiser shall not exceed the cost of this holiday and in no event will the Organiser be liable for loss of profits, opportunity, revenue or profit by the Consumer and/or indirect consequential loss whatsoever
