Air Reservations Many scheduled and most discounted airfares, carry amendment and cancellation fees sometimes up to 100%. It is important that all customers? check the fare rules prior to confirming their reservations detailed under the fare quote. Click through for further details on full fare notes. Amendments and cancellations cannot be processed until the original tickets have been returned. Refunds are processed as quickly as possible. Generally totally unused tickets can be processed by Holiday Mood within 5 working days, but may then take between 12-14 weeks to appear on your credit card statement. In the meantime, many card issuers will allow the item to be placed in dispute to avoid interest charges. Holiday Mood accepts no liability for interest charges incurred for outstanding refunds. For scheduled air fares, an administration fee of £100 per ticket will be applied to all amendments and cancellations in addition to the airline's standard fees. Partially unused tickets may have to be returned to the issuing airline to calculate the refund due (if any) which normally takes 6-12 weeks to process. In some isolated cases this can take up to 12 months. Tickets issued for discounted air fares are subject to an administration fee of £150 in addition to the charges applied by the airline.
Hotel Reservations All hotel reservations made through Holiday Mood are guaranteed for late arrival. This means that if you fail to cancel an unwanted hotel room you will still be charged as the hotel will hold your room right through in case you are delayed. Hotels have varying cancellation policies which range from prior to 6pm on the day to 72 hours prior to arrival in order to avoid paying for the first night's reservation. Please ensure that unwanted rooms are cancelled as early as possible to try and avoid charges.
Insurance Insurance is 100% non-refundable.
Electronic Ticket(e-ticket) is a paperless ticket and is recorded in the Airline Computer System.
Although the Company makes every effort to ensure that published descriptions are correct, it does not own or operate airlines and other suppliers and cannot control or prevent changes. The Company therefore reserves the right to change the description of any flight and/or ground service before you book, in which case you will be told before a confirmation invoice is issued. Although under no obligation to do so, the Company will endeavour to notify all changes before departure if it is practicable to do so. No compensation is payable by the Company in such cases. Should a schedule change occur to your itinerary after full balance/ticket issue, on either the outbound or return flights the relevant suppliers decision will be final and Holiday Mood amendment charges may apply.
