At responsibletravel.com, our aim is to provide you with information about and access to holidays available around the world, which each in their own way contributes to the conservation of the environment, the preservation of local cultures and to the economies of the local communities.
For all of these holidays, we do not endeavour to sell these holidays direct to you, it is our belief that this is best done by the people who design and operate these holidays, as they are the experts and it is important for you to get just the holiday you want., so we refer you directly to them – this is our referral service.
Liabilities for referral service
Because of the service we provide in this instance and how we provide it, it is important for you to understand the limitations of our liability, so we have detailed these below and by reading these and using the site you are agreeing to these limitations in full and you also are agreeing to accept the application of English law to govern matters between responsibletravel.com and yourself. a) Your holiday
For holidays where we have simply acted as a referrer, we do not act as an agent for operators and accommodation owners in the sense that we do not take your money on their behalf or act as go between in any issues relating to your holiday. Your contract will be with them and them only and they are fully liable for every aspect of their holiday product that you buy, according to their own terms and conditions. So we urge you to check these in full before you book. b) Your holiday protection
All holidays on responsibletravel.com provided by UK based tour operators are either formally bonded or operate a system of separate client accounts with external signatories
, to provide you with financial security in the unlikely event that they should cease to trade.
We do also market holidays from overseas tour companies. As the bonding regulations are different in each country we strongly encourage you to enquire about how your money is protected directly with the company you are booking with, or take out personal travel insurance that covers the failure of the holiday provider. When booking hotels & accommodation it is usual to pay after the completion of your stay.
responsibletravel.com do not accept any liability for, or warrant the quality and standard of any of the holidays that you are sold by our holiday providers. And specifically, responsibletravel.com is not liable for any injury and/or damage to persons or property occurring during or as a result of any holiday taken as a result of enquiries made through this website.
c) Holiday provider responsible practices
These holidays are provided by many hundreds of operators and accommodation owners around the world, whose product we vet by their ability to fulfil a set of criteria, developed by us in accordance with leading worldwide practices and using the experience of our own highly qualified personnel.
Again we do our best to ensure that all the holidays abide by the policies that these operators and accommodation owners claim to follow, but we are not able to guarantee they do at all times. If we are alerted to bad practice by any of our holiday providers we will immediately investigate the matter and take appropriate action in advising them to correct these or removing them from the site.d) Information on the site
We also rely on information about their product as supplied by them to use on the site. We're not able to assume responsibility for this information and we have to disclaim all liability in respect of such information, please check the information fully with the holiday provider. And please note that prices quoted are for guidance only.
responsibletravel.com is not liable for any injury and/or damage to persons or property caused by any actual or alleged libellous statements, infringements of intellectual property or privacy rights, or product liability, whether resulting from negligence or otherwise, including without limitation, from any use or operation of any ideas, instructions, procedures, products or methods contained in the material published on the site.
