19. HANDLING/FILLING COMPLAINTS
Each Traveler – reservation holder has a right to file a complaint if the paid services were not provided. If the services provided are not satisfactory, the passenger is required to immediately notify the Agency about the inadequate service and file by email at [email protected] or by phone at +353 89 7009585 (customer service working hours 09:00-17:00 UTC +0 GMT). The Traveler is obligated to cooperate with the Agency representative as well as with the service provider in a well-intentioned manner so that the cause of the complaint can be resolved. If upon arrival the Traveler is not satisfied with the state of the accommodation and leaves the accommodation on his own initiative and finds another accommodation without giving the agency a chance to resolve the issue, correct the cause of the discontent, or find another accommodation for the Traveler, the Traveler does not have a right to request a refund or make a claim for compensation, regardless of the fact that his/her reasons were justified or not.
Should the Traveler accept the proposed solution which corresponds with the service rendered on the spot, the Agency will not take additional complaints into consideration or respond to them.
If the problem is not resolved on the spot following an intervention, the Traveler is obligated to submit a written complaint along with supporting documents as well as any photographs to support the complaint to the agency by e-mail at [email protected] or by postal mail no later than 8 days following the return of the Traveler from his/her trip. The Agency shall only take into consideration fully documented complaints that are received within the 8-day deadline.
The agency is obligated to make a written solution to the complaint within 14 days of receipt of the written complaint. The agency can postpone the deadline in order to collect the evidence and check the claim quotes with the service provider but not for more than 14 days. The agency will take into consideration only those claims whose cause could not be resolved on the spot.
Until a decision has been made by the Agency, in other words for the duration of the 14/28 days after the complaint has been filed, the Traveler relinquishes the right to involve a third party, the arbitration institutions, publicly disclosing information as well as filing suit. The highest amount of compensation per complaint can amount to the complaint portion of the service and cannot encompass the used portion of the service or the total amount of the service. The law of tourism excludes the Traveler’s right to be compensated for ideal damages.
The Agency cannot be held responsible for climate conditions, cleanliness, and the temperature of the sea, nor for other similar situations and events which can result in the dissatisfaction of Travelers and are not a direct result of the accommodation unit (for example, bad weather, improperly maintained beaches, crowds, lost or stolen property and such).
If the Traveler decides to book the special LAST MINUTE, FIRST MINUTE or SPECIAL OFFER deal, then he accepts all risks of such travel. These journeys include uncertainty of facts upon which the agency cannot influence, and the Traveler primarily due to the price accepted such a trip and therefore has no right to the refund of payment or any complaint to the agency.
20. PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURITY
The Traveler provides personal information of his/her own free will. Personal information is required for processing requested services. The same information shall be used for inter-communication. The Agency is under obligation that the personal information of the Traveler will not be taken out of the country or given to a third party except for the purpose of carrying out requested services. The personal information will be kept in a database in accordance with the Management’s decision on the method used for collecting, processing and securing personal information. With the acceptance of these General Terms, the Traveler gives permission for his/her personal information to be used for promotional offers of the Agency.
Paying a deposit or payment in full signifies that the Traveler fully comprehends and accepts the aforementioned terms.
21. COURT JURIDISTICTION
The Traveler and the Agency will aim to settle possible lawsuits in the application of this Agreement and if an agreement cannot be reached the issue will become subject to the decision of the Dublin Court jurisdiction, under the authority of the laws of the Republic of Ireland.
