Details of CLIENT selection will be featured at the website. The CLIENT shall carefully check the dates, the price, the destination and the service supplier details before completing the booking. Information relating to the cancellations policy, costs and details applicable to the reservation will also be displayed during this process. To confirm a booking, the user must be authorised to make the booking by the CLIENT and by all persons named on the booking and their parent or guardian for all party members who are under 18 when the booking is made. By making the booking, the CLIENT is confirming that all persons named on the booking accept the Terms and Conditions and that the CLIENT will inform the other persons named on the booking of the confirmation details and any other appropriate information. By making the booking the CLIENT also become responsible for making all payments due to UniTravel. Once UniTravel has received the CLIENT booking and all appropriate payments, as required by the system, UniTravel will confirm the booking by issuing a confirmation page containing the relating reservation confirmation number and the booking voucher. The booking will not be confirmed and the transaction is not considered completed until the CLIENT has paid on time the full price of the services, irrespective of whether the final consumer, intermediary or the remaining interested parts, have paid the referred price to the CLIENT. Except where the parties have agreed on payment terms in a financial agreement, under no circumstances will the reservation be deemed complete until the CLIENT has paid UniTravel the price of the services, independently of the final consumer, intermediaries or other parties concerned having paid the aforementioned price to the CLIENT. CLIENT shall check the booking voucher carefully as soon as the CLIENT receives it and contact the UniTravel customer services immediately if any information which appears on the booking voucher or any other document appears to be incorrect or incomplete. As UniTravel acts only as CLIENT’s travel agent, UniTravel will have no responsibility for any errors in any documentation except where those errors were made by UniTravel while processing the booking. Such a voucher or reservation confirmation shall include: ¥ Reservation code ¥ General reservation details ¥ Voucher or deliverable documents. The documents provided by UniTravel are for the sole reference of the CLIENT. The voucher for the final consumer MUST be issued by the CLIENT and it must indicate that it is payable by the company designated in the documents issued by UniTravel, including the following wording: "Payable through [the appropriate Supplier company that corresponds], acting as agent for the service operating company". The final consumer shall present the CLIENT’s voucher with those references at the service supplier/accommodation establishment upon check in. If a cancellation has occurred immediately after the confirmation of the booking, the voucher will become invalid. Consequently the reservation will be deemed invalid by UniTravel and the service supplier. Moreover if the service supplier renders the services, UniTravel shall not be responsible for its payment.

In case of contradiction between the general and special Terms and Conditions, the latter shall prevail.
ACCOMMODATION SERVICES (NOT GROUP RESERVATION)
Children Special conditions for children are agreed upon with each service supplier and each establishment/supplier applies its own special conditions. Generally such discounts or special conditions must be understood as applicable only when children share a room with 2 adults. COTS(UK) /CRIBS (US) – In the event that this service is required, this shall be indicated when making the reservation, as some establishments have a limited availability of such items. This extra service can be paid by the final consumer directly at the establishment if required.
Third Person In Accommodation Services
Almost all hotels will treat a reservation for a third person as a double room with an extra bed. Consult the supplement and/or discount applicable for an extra bed to be occupied by an adult, as this varies depending on the hotel. There are hotels with very few available extra beds, so it is imperative to ensure availability when making CLIENT reservation. Failure to do this may result in non-availability of the extra bed at the hotel, with no right to claim any service provision or amount whatsoever from UniTravel.
No Show In Accommodation Services
No reimbursement to the final consumer shall be made in the event of a 'no show' without prior consultation with, and express authorisation from, UniTravel, who shall inform the CLIENT of charges payable, which may range from the cost of one night to 100% of the amount of the reservation. Modifications Unless expressly authorised by UniTravel the CLIENT shall not be allowed to reduce the reserved period of stay or requested service, nor change the names of the final consumer once reservation has been made. Modifications to extend the reserved period shall be subject to availability; in the event of an extension, the price shall be modified accordingly.
In the event of withdrawal of the tourist services purchased via UniTravel, the CLIENT shall have the right to be returned all amounts paid with deduction of the amounts, if any, which may have accrued in terms of cancellation charges. Generally, cancellations made at least 48 hours before final consumer arrival shall not generate charges. This is notwithstanding the aforementioned period may vary in each particular case and shall be indicated at the time of booking. At the time of confirmation of the reservation the cancellation charges which may ensue shall vary according to destination, dates and accommodation establishment. Important: some rates are discounted on the basis that the related booking cannot be modified or canceled and the full related amount will not be refunded. If for exceptional reasons the cancellation is not made via the system, it must be sent in writing to UniTravel detailing the destination and reservation number. UniTravel shall send an acknowledgement of receipt and inform of all the charges, if any, which may be applicable. The CLIENT shall be responsible for obtaining the confirmation and/or acknowledgement of receipt of the cancellation of the reservation by UniTravel. Any charges for cancellations made directly by the final consumer with the accommodation establishment which are charged by the supplier to UniTravel shall be paid, in turn, by the CLIENT to UniTravel. Claims for reimbursement by a final consumer leaving the accommodation establishment before the reserved departure date (early check-out), must be addressed to UniTravel within 20 days of the effective date of departure, together with written confirmation from the accommodation establishment of time and date of departure. In the event of no-show or early check-out the accommodation establishment may charge the full amount of the original reservation, in which case reimbursement to the final consumer shall not apply. Reservations made via UniTravel may be cancelled by request of either party with no penalty whatsoever in the event of force majeure, such as, without restriction, war, revolution, acts of terrorism, closure of borders, epidemics, catastrophes which may affect the various destinations and, specifically, the location of the accommodation establishment at destination, as well as the country of origin of the final consumers. Other services will have different booking / cancellation policies which CLIENT will be informed when confirms their bookings (Prepaid, Not refundable). Important ¥ Throughout the year, some accommodation establishments may change name or trade name, which shall not be construed as a change of hotel or modification of the reservation. ¥ In some countries, there is a local tax known as "visitors' tax", “city tax” "tourist tax" (or similar) and other fees including (but not limited to) resort fees or service charges, which shall be paid directly by the end consumer at the establishment and/or at the airport. UniTravel shall use reasonable endeavours to provide, at the time of booking, an estimation of the applicable fees and/or local tax(es) attributable to each individual booking and payable at the time of booking and/or locally on arrival (“Local Tax/Fee Estimation”), however please note that UniTravel does not warrant that the Local Tax/Fee Estimations shall be accurate and the CLIENT acknowledges and agrees that the Local Tax/Fee Estimations are provided as estimates only. The CLIENT further acknowledges that Local Taxes and Fee Estimations, may change from time to time. As a result, UniTravel cannot be held liable for any loss, costs or damages incurred as a result of the provision of such Local Taxes/Fee Estimations. Confirmation of and the accuracy of the Local Taxes/or Fee Estimations is ultimately the responsibility of the CLIENT. ¥ The categories of the hotels have been provided by the establishments themselves and in accordance with specific regulations applicable in each country. A hotel in one country, therefore, may not be similar in terms of services and quality to a hotel in another, despite belonging to the same category. ¥ UniTravel provides the information supplied by the hotel regarding the existence of works of refurbishment or renovation of the establishment, as well as duration thereof. UniTravel shall not accept claims for works about which it has not been informed or which extend beyond the planned date of conclusion thereof. ¥ In some countries the legal adult age may differ depending on the relevant local legislation.
