Holidays with Aer Lingus is a trading name of SimplySun Ltd., 27-32 Talbot Street, Dublin 1, Ireland (Company Registration Number 476506) with whom you make a contract when you book. This means that when you book a holiday with us you can be entirely confident that in the unlikely event of our insolvency before or during your holiday, any money you have paid to us is fully secured, and if you are overseas, that arrangements will be made to repatriate you at the end of your holiday.
This is an agreement for the sale and supply of a Package Holiday with SimplySun Limited trading, trading as Holidays with Aer Lingus. Please read these booking terms and conditions before confirming your booking. They apply to all holidays which include flights described on our website and they deal with your rights and obligations to us and ours to you. We are committed to a policy of fair-trading and make every effort to ensure you have an enjoyable holiday with us.
In these Booking Conditions the word "Organiser" means SimplySun Limited, trading as Holidays with Aer Lingus, the person who arranges your flights, transport, accommodation etc. and who offers it as a holiday. "Consumer" means you, the person who takes or agrees to take the holiday or any person on whose behalf you agree to purchase the holiday and who is listed on the confirmation invoice or any other person to whom you transfer a holiday which you have bought. You must be authorised to make the booking on the basis of these booking conditions by all persons listed on the booking (and their parent or guardian for anyone under the age of 18 at the time of booking) and you are responsible for ensuring that all those listed have read the booking conditions and agree to abide by them. The lead name is responsible for making all payments due to us.
1. THE CONTRACT
a) No contract shall arise until the Organiser has received a deposit or full payment for the holiday and has issued written confirmation of its acceptance to the Consumer. An internet booking is a confirmed booking once the Consumer has received a Booking Reference number. The terms of the contract between the Consumer and the Organiser are contained solely in this document, the Organiser's confirmation, the Organiser's brochure or other descriptive material, any airline or sailing ticket issued, the terms and conditions of any suppliers of services and the itinerary issued by the Organiser.
b) The Organiser reserves the right to terminate the contract with the Consumer if the behaviour or conduct of the Consumer either prior to or during a holiday is likely to endanger the safety or well being of other Consumers in his company or that of the Consumer himself, the Organiser, or that of the Organiser's representatives, contractors, agents or employees and the cancellation charges as provided for in clause 9 of these booking conditions are payable by the Consumer. Further, where, as a result of the Consumer's actions or the actions of any other person who is listed on the Confirmation Invoice either or both of the following incidents occurs:
I. there is a delay or diversion to the means of transportation the subject of this contract;
II. the accommodation in which the Consumer is staying is damaged, the Consumer, hereby agrees to indemnify the Organiser against any claim (including legal costs) made against the Organiser in relation to the occurrence of such incidents.
2. SPECIAL NEEDS / DISABILITIES
As very few of the hotels or apartments are specifically designed or suited to persons with special needs, we cannot guarantee that the properties or their facilities will cater adequately for disabled persons' special needs. It is your responsibility to read the property descriptions very carefully before making a final selection and you must contact us by telephone prior to you proceeding with your booking, to advise us of any special requirements you may have, as we need to ensure that your selection will meet your particular requirements. This might involve us contacting the relevant property on your behalf to confirm that your special needs will be met. If you have not advised us of your special requirements at the time of booking, we shall not be held responsible for any diminution of enjoyment; any deficit in your chosen hotel or apartment or any facility that does not meet your special needs and no compensation shall be forthcoming if we have not been informed prior to your departure.
It shall be the Consumer's responsibility to disclose prior to booking to the Organiser any physical or mental condition of a member of his party which may be relevant and no liability shall attach to the Organiser for the provision of an unsuitable holiday for a disabled person where disclosure of the disability has not been made to the Organiser. The Organiser reserves the right to decline to provide a holiday for a person with a disability where, in the Organiser's opinion, that holiday would be inconsistent with the special needs of that person.
3. SPECIAL REQUESTS
Special requests (e.g. ground floor accommodation, sea view, etc.) shall be communicated by the Consumer in writing to the Organiser or Retailer at the time of making the booking. The Organiser shall use reasonable endeavours to fulfil such requests. The granting of such requests is the sole responsibility of the relevant supplier. No liability shall attach to the Organiser for failure to comply with a special request and such requests do not form part of the contract.
4. THE CONSUMER'S RESPONSIBILITIES
a) The consumer shall contact the Organiser immediately if any information that appears on the confirmation invoice or any other document appears to be incorrect or incomplete, as it may not be possible or may be costly to make changes later. (e.g. the first name / family name of all passengers) We regret that we cannot accept any responsibility if you do not tell us about any mistake in any documents within ten days of our sending it out. We will do our best to rectify any mistake notified to us but you may be required to meet any of the costs involved (e.g. name change fees charged by an airline).
b) The Consumer is solely responsible for ensuring that he presents himself at the airport or port of departure in sufficient time prior to the designated departure time to complete embarkation requirements. If the Consumer arrives late at the airport or port of departure, the Organiser shall not be obliged to carry the Consumer and shall be entitled to treat the holiday as having been cancelled by the Consumer. It is also the sole responsibility of the Consumer to ensure that all travel documentation i.e. passports, visas (where relevant) etc. are in order.
c) The Consumer is restricted by regulation of carriers and executive authorities with regard to the weight, type and contents of baggage which he may take on board the craft and/or vehicles which will be used in connection with the holiday. The Consumer shall be responsible for ascertaining any limitations which apply in this regard and shall not present himself at the airport or port of departure with any prohibited item in his luggage or on his person or with items which exceed weight or dimension restrictions applicable.
d) The Consumer hereby agrees that he shall abide by all instructions or directions given by a member of the Organiser's staff or any crew member of carrier's craft or vehicle used in connection with the holiday and hereby agrees to indemnify the Organiser against any loss or injury suffered or incurred by any other person as a consequence of the Consumer's failure to act in accordance with any such direction or instruction.
e) The Consumer undertakes to behave himself in a proper manner and not to cause any disturbance in or around the accommodation he occupies, which may cause offence or diminution of enjoyment of a holiday to other holiday makers. The Consumer further undertakes to leave his accommodation in good condition and not to cause any damage or destruction to the accommodation or its contents. In the event that damage or destruction is caused to the accommodation the Consumer agrees to pay the owner or management of such establishment the cost of repair or replacing such damage.
A) The Organiser shall not be liable for any damage caused to the Consumer by the failure to perform the Contract or the improper performance of the Contract where the failure or the improper performance is due neither to any fault of the Organiser or to that of another supplier of services because:-
I. the failure which occurs in the performance of the Contract is attributable to the Consumer;
II. such failure is attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the services contracted for, and are unforeseeable or unavoidable;
III. such failure is due to:-
a) force majeure (as defined in sub-paragraph 12 (e)); or
b) an event which the Organiser, the Retailer acting on his behalf or the supplier of services, even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall. In the case of damage, other than death or personal injury or damage caused by the wilful misconduct or gross negligence of the Organiser the amount of compensation which will be paid to the Consumer will be limited to, in the case of an adult an amount equal to double the inclusive price of the Package to the adult concerned, and, in the case of a minor an amount equal to the inclusive price of the Package to the minor concerned.
B) In the event of any liability on the part of the Organiser for injury, illness or death, no payment will be made unless the following conditions are complied with:-
I. the Consumer must advise the Organiser in relation to the injury or illness while the Consumer is at the resort and must also write to the Organiser within three months of the completion of the holiday;
II. the Consumer must transfer any rights that the Consumer has, in respect of such injury, illness or death against any person to the Organiser;
III. the Consumer must co-operate fully with the Organiser to enable the Organiser or its insurers to enforce such rights;
IV. any payments that the Organiser is obliged to make will be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to that provided for by the International Convention concerned (in each case including in respect of the conditions of liability, the time for bringing any claim and the type and amount of any damages that can be awarded). International Conventions which may apply include: in respect of international air travel, The Warsaw Convention 1929 (including as amended by the Hague Protocol of 1955 and by any of the additional Montreal Protocol of 1975) or the Montreal Convention 1999; in respect of rail travel, the Berne Convention 1961, in respect of carriage by sea, the Athens Convention 1974; in respect of carriage by road, the Geneva Convention 1973; and, in respect of hotels, the Paris Convention 1962. For the avoidance of doubt, this means that the Organiser is to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitations of compensation contained in any of these conventions or any other International Conventions applicable to the Consumer's liability.
Sea Travel Conditions of Carriage & International Conventions:
Land, sea and air carriers will have their own conditions of carriage with which you must comply. In the case of sea travel the provisions of the Athens Convention 1974 relating to the carriage of passengers and their luggage by sea may apply. This Convention and the sea carrier's conditions of carriage may continue to apply to You and Your party throughout Your stay on board the ship and during boarding and disembarkation. This Convention presumes that Your baggage has been delivered undamaged unless you will give full written details to the carrier (1) in the case of apparent damage before You disembark from the ship or the baggage is redelivered to You; or (11) in the case of damage which is not apparent or of loss, within 15 days of disembarkation or from the time when the luggage should have been redelivered to You. The Athens Convention, and the carrier's conditions may limit or exclude liability for death or personal injury, or loss of or damage to luggage, and make special provision for valuables.
This information notice summarises the liability rules applied by Community air carriers as required by Community legislation and the Montreal Convention.
Compensation in the case of death or injury:
There are no financial limits to the liability for passenger injury or death. For damages up to 113,100 SDRs, the air carrier cannot contest claims for compensation. Above that amount, the air carrier can defend itself against a claim by proving that it was not negligent or otherwise at fault.
Advance payments: If a passenger is killed or injured, the air carrier must make an advance payment, to cover immediate economic needs, within 15 days from the identification of the person entitled to the compensation. In the event of death, this advance payment shall not be less than 16,000 SDRs.
Passenger delays: In the case of passenger delay, the air carrier is liable for damage unless it took all reasonable measures to avoid the damage or it was impossible to take such measures. The liability for passenger delay is limited to 4,694 SDRs.
Baggage delays: In the case of baggage delay, the air carrier is liable for damage unless it took all reasonable measures to avoid the damage or it was impossible to take such measures. The liability for baggage delay is 1,131 SDRs.
Destruction, loss or damage to baggage: The air carrier is liable for destruction, loss or damage to baggage up to 1,131 SDRs. In the case of checked baggage, it is liable even if not at fault, unless the baggage was defective. In the case of checked baggage, the carrier is liable only if at fault.
Higher limits for baggage: A passenger can benefit from a higher liability limit by making a special declaration at the latest at check-in and by paying a supplementary fee.
Complaints on baggage: If the baggage is damaged, delayed, lost or destroyed, the passenger must write and complain to the air carrier as soon as possible, in the case of damage to checked baggage, the passenger must write and complain within 7 days and in the case of delay within 21 days, in both cases from the date on which the baggage was placed at the passenger's disposal.
Liability of Contracting and Actual Carriers
If the air carrier actually performing the flight is not the same as the contracting air carrier, the passenger has the right to address a complaint or to make a claim for damages against either. If the name or code of an air carrier is indicated on the ticket, that air carrier is the contracting air carrier.
Time limit for action: Any action in court to claim damages must be brought within two years from the date of arrival of the aircraft, or from the date on which the aircraft ought to have arrived.
Basis for the information: The basis for the rules described above is the Montreal Convention of 28 May 1999, which is implemented in the Community by Regulation (EC) No. 2027/97 (as amended by Regulation (EC) No. 889/2002 and national legislation of the Member States). A copy of any conditions of carriage applicable to the holiday and the Conventions referred to above, can be supplied on request.
a) If the Consumer wishes to make a complaint in relation to a holiday, he must immediately inform the Organiser's representative or agent at the location where the complaint arises (the contact details for the Organiser's representative or agent are on the Consumer's holiday voucher) and shall if the Organiser requires, complete a form setting out the detail of the Consumer's complaint. If the Consumer fails to comply with such requirement, the Organiser shall be entitled to recover the cost from the Consumer of any additional expense incurred by it in carrying out subsequent investigation of a complaint, which is found to be unjustified.
b) The Consumer shall be obliged to notify the Organiser in writing of any complaint not later than 28 days after his return to the airport or port of departure or termination of the holiday whichever is the earlier and no complaint received thereafter shall be entertained.
c) The Consumer has the option to complete an electronic complaint form and file it to the EU Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) Platform, outlining the details of the complaint regarding a product or service. Please see details below:
