If the price increase exceeds 8 % of the total price of the package, then the Traveller may within three (3) days of notification of the price increase:

  1. a) accept the proposed change; or

9. Obligations-Responsibility of the Travel Agency

The Travel Agency undertakes to coordinate and execute the best possible travel arrangements available to Travellers. In any case, and after having used all means of diligence and care, the Travel Agency shall not be held liable for inaccurate actions and omissions of third parties and its affiliates, as well as for emergencies, such as cancellations, delays or itinerary changes of various modes of transport (airplanes, ships, trains, etc.) or in the event of a blockade (“embargo”) due to terrorist acts, strikes and other causes of force majeure. The Travel Agency may not anticipate or control any delays in charter flights or ships for technical or meteorological or other reasons.

It is noted that the Travel Agency is unable to anticipate or control circumstances that are beyond its sphere of influence and may lead to travel cancellation. Typical examples of such cases are: strikes, accidents, diseases, epidemics, organic disturbances due to local conditions, altitude, climate, meals not included in the trip program or inappropriate hygiene due to external factors, injuries or hardships, terrorist acts, hijackings, earthquakes, climate, fires, toxic infections and any other state of emergency or force majeure. In the above cases, the Travel Agency bears no responsibility for any damage caused by them, but will make every effort to support and take care of the Travellers in any way without this constituting  admission of any liability or obligation to cover extraordinary expenses, which, as applies to force majeure cases, should be covered by the Travellers themselves.

Reasonable complaints during the trip must be reported immediately and on-site to the attendant (or, if not, to our Travel Agency), and to the service provider in writing. If the problem identified cannot be resolved locally after your return from the trip, you must file a written complaint within 10 working days with our office, along with any documents or other supporting evidence. After expiration of the 10-day period, our Travel Agency  is under no obligation to respond to any requests. In the event of losses due to non-performance or defective performance of package travel benefits, the Traveller’s compensation is limited as provided in the binding international conventions that govern those benefits. Compensation based on non-performance or defective performance of package travel benefits is limited to no more than three times the total package price per person.

Upon completion of your trip, the Travel Agency will issue the relevant tax documents, which can be picked up by the Traveller at Sorou 35 Maroussi, Athens, Greece or sent to the Traveller electronically at their email address.

10.       Obligations-Responsibilities of the Travellers

Travellers undertake to act properly and to comply with the program of the trip and instructions of escorts or guides. Travellers are required to arrive on time for the various activities of the program (transport, guided tours, excursions, meals, etc.). If the delay or inconsistency of the Traveller results in the loss of an excursion, transport or other service offered, the Traveller must reconnect with the group at its own risk and expense, with no right for refund of the lost service or for the whole journey, if he/she fails to reconnect. The Travel Agency will make any effort to assist him/her, without undertaking any obligation or liability.

Arrival at departure point should be at least 15 minutes (15΄) prior to departure.

If a Traveller on his/her own decision discontinues his / her journey and leaves the group, he / she is not entitled to any further service or indemnity and the responsibility and costs of any travelling out of the group are solely borne by him / her. Likewise, the Travel Agency bears no responsibility for organized travel services that were not provided to the Traveller because of his/her negligence or liability due to his/her illness or unexpected accident. Travellers are responsible for the actions of their children and must supervise them continuously throughout the journey for their safety and behavior.

11.       Hotels-Tourist Accommodation / Boats and other means of transport

All information pertaining to the categorization or classification of hotels and accommodations listed in the program of the trip is in accordance with the applicable tourism laws of each country for the classification of hotels and lodgings which may vary from country to country. The rooms are usually delivered between 14:00-16:00 on the day of arrival and should be vacated by 10.00 to 12.00 noon on the day of departure  (depending on each hotel’s policy). If you wish to check in earlier or leave later, you will need to pay the extra charge (if available). If, due to unforeseen difficulties, the need for a hotel change to another, of similar or higher category arises, the Travel Agency shall not be liable for any further compensation to Travellers.

In case of Traveller’s late arrival at the hotel, without due notice to the hotel, the hotel has the right to cancel the reservation and make the room available for the entire booked period.

As regards the coach trips in Greece, seats are reserved on the order of priority and do not change during the trip. Smoking in the bus is prohibited.

The Traveller should not leave personal items unattended and constantly monitor them (eg cell phones, etc.) in any location (hotel, boat, bus, etc.). Specifically for hotels, it is an international practice not to take responsibility for money or valuables left in the room.

The insurance policy covers, inter alia, the insolvency of the Travel Agency and  Travellers irrespective of their place of residence, place of departure or place of purchase of the Travel Services. The insurance policy number and details of the insurance company are detailed in Annex II attached hereto.

  1. Luggage

The Travellers take responsibility of the transportation of their luggage, whether or not accompanied by representatives of our Travel Agency. In the event of damage or loss, the applicable international regulations apply to all means of transport and hotels and in this case, liability shall be limited as provided therein. Our Travel Agency shall not be held responsible for what is contained in the luggage.

  1. Security of Transactions

The Travel Agency places great  importance on the security of your electronic transactions and takes all the necessary measures, with the most advanced and modern systems, to strengthen online security. All information about your transactions and your personal data is kept secure and confidential. The security of the Travel Agency’s online store is achieved through the following methods:

  1. i) Securing the Transfer of Your Personal Data

To ensure the privacy of your data transfer, we use the SSL encryption protocol.

  1. ii) Firewall Control

Access to Travel Agency systems (servers) is controlled by a firewall, which allows users to use specific services while blocking access to systems and databases with confidential information and data of the Travel Agency.

iii) Encryption

The system of the Travel Agency first decrypts the information it receives using the same key (predetermined when you connect to the service) and then it processes it. The Travel Agency’s systems send back information with the application of the same encryption process.

Wherever you may enter your personal data at the Website, (passwords, addresses, phones, credit cards, etc.) a SSL encryption applies.

Encryption is basically a way of encoding information until it reaches its designated recipient, who can decode it using the appropriate key. Τherefore, every time you send information to the system, your browser first encrypts it using a key [insert key] and then it sends it to the system.

  1. iv) Confidentiality of transactions

Our Travel Agency considers confidentiality to be self-evident. The same basic principles that apply to classical transactions also apply to e-commerce. All information transmitted by the user to the Travel Agency is confidential and the Travel Agency has taken all necessary steps to authorize transactions only to the extent necessary in the context of the provision of services. Some of the measures taken are the following:

  1.             Only authorized employees have access to your transaction information and only when necessary, e.g. to process your applications.
  2.             The Travel Agency does not disclose the details of its customers and their transactions, unless it has written authorization from you or it is required by a court order or decision of another public authority.

iii.            Where the Travel Agency uses third parties to support its systems, it shall ensure confidentiality. For more information on how the Travel Agency processes personal data, please see our Privacy Policy.

  1. Dispute Settlement

15.1 Alternative Dispute Resolution Procedure

The Directive 2013/11 / EC, transposed into national law with Joint Ministerial Decision 70330/2015, and the Regulation 2013/524/EU on Online Dispute Resolution (ODR), provides the possibility for consumers to seek online dispute resolution through the Alternative Dispute Resolution process across the European Union. Specifically, in cases where the client is a consumer (ie any natural person who is acting for purposes which are outside his trade) and faces any problem with his/her purchases through the Website, he or she may submit a complaint through the single EU-wide ODR Platform to approved dispute resolution entities registered on the following platform (https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.chooseLanguage) (“ADR Entity”). Directive 2013/11 / EC applies to  procedures for the out-of court resolution of domestic and cross-border disputes concerning contractual obligations stemming from sales contracts or service contracts between a trader established in the Union and a consumer resident in the Union through the intervention of an ADR Entity which proposes or imposes a solution or brings the parties together with the aim of facilitating an amicable solution.

Regulation 2013/524 / EU applies to the out-of-court resolution of disputes concerning contractual obligations stemming from online sales or service contracts between a consumer resident in the Union and a trader established in the Union through the intervention of an ADR Entity listed in accordance with Article 20(2) of Directive 2013/11/EU and which involves the use of the ODR platform.
