Ayyash Faruq Travel & Tours (AFTT)

AFTT is acting as an intermediary or a “Booking Agent” for travel services that are not directly supplied by us (e.g., air carriage and ground transportation, hotel accommodations, meals, tours, etc). We are not a co-vendor of such products and services. You will be entering into a separate contract with such suppliers in connection with such travel services.

Travel Services

We provide a variety of travel related products from different vendors and third parties (“Suppliers”). Each Supplier has its own terms and conditions that will be applicable depending on your particular travel arrangements. In addition to our general terms and conditions, we must highlight that as our suppliers have their own terms and conditions, you should make sure to understand them.

All bookings and travel arrangements can be made via our website. Our website is owned and licensed by us and, which is referred throughout this agreement, can be found at ayyashfaruq.com.

Increase In Charges

All airline tickets are subject to supplemental price increase that may be imposed after the date of booking. Post purchase price increases may be applied due to additional costs imposed by a supplier or government. You may be charged additional sums by AFTT to offset increased fees, fuel surcharges, taxes, and fluctuations in foreign exchange markets or any combination thereof. Acceptance of these terms and conditions hereby consent you to any post-purchase price increases and authorises AFTT to charge the additional amount (where applicable) to your booking.

Deposits & Payment

Payment of deposit enables us to hold a reservation for you but does not guarantee the price. The price can only be guaranteed once full payment is made to us and other travel documents have been issues, subject to any terms and conditions of the Supplier. We will advise you of the date that full payment is required. Upon you provision of your payment information, you are authorizing us to make the payment arrangements with the corresponding suppliers.

We reserve the right to refuse personal cheques as a method of payment. After full payment, the conditions of the contract with your Supplier may permit them to increase the cost of your arrangements. We will pass on any such increase to you as we become aware of such increase. If we have arranged a package, changes in transportation costs including the cost of fuel, taxes, fees and exchange rates mean that the price of your travel arrangements may change after you have paid in full.

Documentation

Our general practice is to send documents to our customers electronically whenever possible. We reserve the right to charge an administration fee should you make a request for such documents to be sent as a hard copy.

Cancellations & Changes

Your contract with your suppliers may allow them to cancel or amend bookings. We will ensure that you are promptly notified of any significant changes once we become aware of such change if there is time before your departure, but we accept no liability for any changes or costs incurred that may result. Subject to the supplier’s terms and conditions, you will then have the choice of accepting the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of alternative travel arrangements if one is made available by the Supplier, or cancelling your booked arrangements and receiving any applicable refunds. We do not guaranty that any refunds will apply.

If you have booked a package including flight arrangements and we are alerted to a significant schedule change by your airline before you leave, we will contact you to advise you of this. Please ensure that you have not given your contact email address to us and that you regularly check for messages before you leave. We have no control over airline schedule changes and accept no liability for costs which may arise as a result of such changes.

Your Acceptance of These Terms & Conditions

By booking your arrangement with us or using our website, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, and any additional terms and conditions of any Supplier that are applicable to your booking, travel arrangements or use of any website content. You agree on behalf of yourself and those you represent to comply with all such terms and conditions, including the payment of all amounts when due.

Changes To Bookings

Where a change is requested by you to your travel arrangements and is permitted and possible, our standard service fees will apply in addition to any additional Supplier changes. Please contact our booking team to enquire about changes for details on how to request changes. Please note that all reservation changes are subject to availability and the terms and conditions of the travel service.

Changes to name details are not allowed by many airlines and other Suppliers. While we will endeavor to make such a change if necessary, please bear in mind that most airlines and Suppliers treat a name change as a cancellation, to which standard conditions and charges would apply.

Flights must be taken in the sequence they appear on your ticket or e-ticket confirmation. If you plan to take a flight as booked, please contact the airline as far in advance as possible to discuss your options. If you do not check in on time for a confirmed reservation, the airline may register you as a ‘no-show’ which could result in extra charges and/or your whole flight itinerary being cancelled and/or render your ticket void.

Cancellation of Bookings

If you cancel your arrangements, you may be entitled to a partial refund. In addition to the cancellation terms and conditions of your Supplier(s), our standard fees will apply as may be outlined on your receipt or booking confirmation. We need to receive from you your original reservation confirmation and proof of transaction before any applicable refund can be considered. If you decide to cancel arrangements before the balance due date, any deposits paid are non-refundable.

Refunds will only be paid to you once we have received the funds back from the Supplier. Generally, flight tickets cannot be refunded if they are partially used. We are not responsible for a Supplier’s failure to pay a refund.

If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim your cancellation charges through your insurer.
