In any case, no refund is due to the traveler  who decides to interrupt the trip or stay or not to use the services regularly booked and accepted in the contract for the sale of tourist packages. In the case of pre-established closed groups, these sums will be agreed from time to time at the signing of the contract. Important: some periods of the year or some particular destinations or tourist services (e.g. New Year's Eve, Caribbean or theatrical performances, etc.) may provide for booking, payment and cancellation rules imposed by the suppliers of the services themselves, which are completely particular and may not coincide with the above rules. The related booking, payment and cancellation penalties will be specified to the traveler by the organizer and / or the seller at the time of booking.

The non-attribution to the traveler of the impossibility of taking advantage of the holiday does not legitimize the withdrawal without penalties, provided by law only for the objective circumstances that can be found at the destination of the holiday referred to in paragraph 2 or for the hypotheses referred to in paragraph 1, being provided the possibility of guaranteeing oneself from the economic risk connected to the cancellation of the contract, with the stipulation of a specific insurance policy, where not provided in the form inclusive of the organizer.

 

Pursuant to art ex art. 47 1st paragraph lett. g. Consumer Code, we inform you that the right of withdrawal is excluded in contracts concluded at a distance. Pursuant to art. 41 paragraph 7 of the tourist code, we inform you that the right of withdrawal is excluded in contracts negotiated away from business premises in the case of offers with significantly lower rates compared to competing offers. The cancellation penalties provided for in the technical sheet are therefore applicable to the traveler / consumer who withdraws from the contract signed at a distance or away from business premises with significantly reduced rates compared to competing offers. Pursuant to Article 59 of the Consumer Code, Legislative Decree 6 September 2005, n. 206 amended following Legislative Decree 21 February 2014 n.21, the right of withdrawal is excluded in relation to contracts for the supply of accommodation, transport, car rental services, catering or services relating to free time activities, if the contract provides for a specific date or period for performance. Therefore, the cancellation penalties provided for and indicated in each individual service are applicable to the consumer who withdraws from the contract signed remotely or negotiated away from business premises.

CARRIERS, FLIGHTS, VALIDITY RATES

The initials of the carrier who will carry out your flight (s) is indicated in the booking confirmation; any changes will be promptly communicated by the Organizer. The airlines used are not all European. The scheduled tickets issued by Italy are in the form of e-tickets (there are no more paper tickets except for some carriers used for domestic domestic flights that require them).

The airlines reserve the right to substitute, as necessary, the planned aircraft with another one owned by them or by another airline. Flight operations may be subject to variations regardless of the will of SEL - Sport & Events Logistics srl.

Code Sharing: on the basis of international commercial agreements, many airlines operate some routes under a "code sharing" regime with other carriers. It may therefore happen that an airline purchased with a specific airline and named with the airline's initials is actually operated with another carrier's aircraft and crew. Even in the case of "code sharing" flights, the safety regulations issued by ENAC are respected. Air transport: all prices, taxes and supplements indicated in the estimate phase are subject to change and will be reconfirmed at the time of booking. In the estimates that provide for scheduled flights, the price already includes any ticketing costs. Some scheduled fares require immediate ticketing upon confirmation of booking. In this case, the simultaneous payment of the airline tickets will be required and any cancellation penalties may be different from those indicated in the 'General Conditions of Contract'.

Flight schedules: flight schedules are purely indicative and do not constitute a substantial element of the travel contract; the actual flight times are also reported exclusively in the travel documents delivered to the tourist. Any changes in flight schedules are not attributable to negligence of the Organizer. The airlines in fact reserve the right to modify them at any time, for technical / operational needs of service, slots, connections or force majeure, etc., even without notice.

Any changes may involve, in addition to the change of schedules, also the change of airline and the making of unscheduled stopovers.

Pregnant women need a medical certificate for boarding, certifying the progress of the pregnancy up to the twenty-eighth week. From the twenty-ninth to the thirty-fourth week, it is necessary that the certificate, issued within three days prior to departure, certifies that you are fit to fly. In any case, it will be essential to ask the Airline, through your travel agency, for all possible boarding requirements. It is necessary to verify that the return flight falls strictly within the thirty-fourth week of gestation. Beyond the thirty-fourth week they may not be accepted on board.

Infant: the confirmation of the flight for the infant (a child who has not reached the age of two does not pay for the ticket by not occupying a seat) does not imply the confirmation of the cot, which can be provided subject to availability only upon written request at the time of the request for reservation. Some airlines do not accept business class infants.

Airport taxes: in almost all countries there are airport exit taxes to be paid directly on site: the amount to be paid is shown in the “Destination information” news sheet and is subject to change without notice.

Ticket issuing taxes not included will be communicated at the time of booking.

Baggage allowance: The baggage allowance is generally 20 kg for economy class and 30 kg for business class (superior class) for all flights. For some countries, baggage is considered as packages, the weight of which varies according to the country and the carrier and will be communicated at the time of booking the flight. In the event of excess baggage, the payment of the amount referring to the excess kg may be requested upon boarding. For some domestic flights with small aircraft the allowance can be reduced to 10 kg and there are very strict weight restrictions. All US and Canadian carriers apply a surcharge (surcharge to be paid locally) for checked and checked baggage in the hold on all domestic domestic flights. Any exceptions will be communicated at the time of booking, depending on the type of fare or ticket purchased.

Since the rules of the carriers are subject to change, without notice and at any time, even in relation to what is reported on the ticket at the time of printing, the official website of the chosen airline is considered as the only reliable source, to which reference should be made. for all updated information relating to procedures and any amounts requested

For the embarkation of special baggage such as bicycles, windsurfers, diving equipment, golf bags, drones and other sports and non-sports material, it is necessary to provide information at the time of booking. However, the acceptance and boarding of these special baggage is subject to the approval of the airline and is always subject to a fee. For the limitations relating to hand baggage consult the website  www.enac.gov.it.  Please note that every single piece of baggage must be accompanied by a specific passenger identification label.

SEL - Sport & Events Logistics srl  recommends checking and complying with the regulations in force on the export or import of objects, foodstuffs, animals, flowers, plants, etc. from protected species. 

If you are interested in buying exotic souvenirs abroad, before leaving Italy, if necessary, request appropriate information from the Ministry of the Environment or the Ministry of Economic Development or the Ministry of Agricultural and Forestry Policies-Forestry Corps of the State. In any case it is good to consult the  Regulation (EU) 1320/2014  for the appropriate checks.

 

OPTIONAL SERVICES AND REPORTING

At the time of the booking request some ancillary services may not be available. We therefore ask during the booking phase to write us which services are considered essential to the conclusion of the contract in order to be able to certify their actual availability. The "Optional" services are extra for a fee. The importance of  inform the Organizer in advance of any  special needs or conditions  such as food intolerances and allergies in order to verify with suppliers the actual availability and feasibility of personalized services. Any requests for reports relating to hotel accommodation (for example double bed, neighboring rooms) are never guaranteed

 

 

HOTELS

The hotels listed in our catalogs or on the online site have been selected directly by us, or through our correspondents, or in the case of some countries, they are booked by us through "Read data banks". In some locations there are no large hotel facilities and the hotels proposed, usually small in size, even if indicated in the first / second category, have a modest standard compared to the structures of large cities, but have in any case been selected on the basis of cleanliness and of a minimum of comfort. For convenience, the hotel classification is divided into stars, except for some hotels, lodges or other types of accommodation that do not indicate this classification. A 1/2 star hotel offers practical and essential services; if it has 3 stars it is a mid-level hotel; with 4 stars it has good services; with 5 stars they consider themselves to be of excellent level. Within the categories, the quality / price ratio must always be considered. In fact, even within the same category, there may be variations in price and quality, sometimes even significant ones. The rooms are basic double (two single beds or one double bed). In Central-South America, the United States, the Caribbean and the United Arab Emirates in general there are no triple rooms, but only doubles with more spacious beds so they are also used as triple / quadruple rooms without adding additional beds. Where the room rate does not explicitly report the number of beds available and their type (size), the use of the room is always based on the bed (s) available at the time of check-in at the hotel.

For cots, in the case of reservations with infants, we do not guarantee their presence as they are not always available in hotels and in any case always to a limited extent: it is necessary to make a specific request even if it is never guaranteed.

For infants and children who have free accommodation in the hotel - including those included in the tours - it may be required to pay for meals directly on site.

In the descriptions of the hotels, when it is indicated mini-bar and safe, their use is subject to payment. The half board option at the hotel usually includes the evening meal as the main meal. Drinks, unless otherwise specified, are always excluded and to be paid locally. The indication of wine included does not automatically give the right to request water or other alcoholic and / or non-alcoholic beverage in place. Full board does not include drinks. The All Inclusive formula includes drinks that can be served by the glass or self-service through special dispensers; this service may be subject to a bar opening / closing time. Some hotels / resorts require guests to wear a bracelet or other that can allow them to be identified as guests of the structure.

Formal dress is required for dinner in some hotel restaurants; for this reason it is advisable to have suitable clothes with you in order to avoid unpleasant situations, or to inquire in advance before departure. Many hotels require a credit card upon check-in to guarantee payment of extra charges. Some hotels take a daily credit card deposit which will be returned at the end of the stay. On the day of arrival, the service generally begins with dinner at the hotel, depending on the time of arrival and the treatment booked, which can be consumed within the opening hours of the restaurant. Meals not taken for reasons such as excursions, flight operations, etc. are not refunded. With the check-out of the room the services end; further extra services such as drinks and meals will have to be settled on site. Check-in takes place in the afternoon, check-out in the morning, regardless of the arrival and departure times of flights and / or transfers. The times are established by the individual hotels. On the day of return, it is possible to request a "late check-out" directly from the hotel by paying directly on the spot: everything is subject to availability and at the discretion of the hotel. 

All reports made to hotels are never guaranteed.

It is possible that in some periods some of the services indicated in the descriptions are not available and that in periods of low occupancy some hotels carry out routine maintenance work and improvements, as well as some hotels may change the restaurant service from "buffet" to "à la carte" ".

Complementary services (equipment, entertainment, shops, pizzerias, restaurants, minimarket, sports courses, babysitting service, mini club, etc.) are sometimes subordinated to the closing shifts connected with the relative management and may not be activated if the climatic conditions or the number of presences does not justify its functioning, or causes of force majeure (for example sudden failures) do not allow it.

Some hotels have exclusively "non-smoking" rooms, therefore smoking is prohibited, even on terraces or balconies, we ask you to  wait at the disposition of the various hotels and use only the reserved areas in order not to incur penalties and to be removed from the structure.

 

 

HONEYMOONS

Hotels that offer special attention to honeymooners require a copy of the wedding certificate or publications upon check-in. The "pluses" are indicated in the description of each individual hotel and a minimum of nights stay is generally required to be eligible.

NATURAL EVENTS

Tides and storm surges can decrease or increase the depth and breadth of the coast and / or modify its conformation. The deposit of algae on beaches is a natural phenomenon, in some countries protected by environmental protection regulations; any possibility of removal of the same is subject to specific authorizations in relation to which SEL - Sport & Events Logistics srl  it has no power of modification. For this reason it is possible that in these particular moments the sea and the beach may not look like the published photos.

 

CLIMATE AND CLOTHING

Specific climate information can be found in the "Destination Information". The link to consult will be indicated with the quote and travel documents. However, it is worth remembering that following the climatic variations of recent years that have affected the whole globe, events such as tropical storms, hurricanes, etc. they can also occur in periods and in places other than those normally foreseen. We recommend that you have everything you need before your trip to take pictures and take "holiday memories", as in some countries it is difficult to find photographic material, cards, batteries and more. It is advisable to have antihistamines and first use medicines (be careful because in some countries there are severe restrictions, for example Introducing prescribed drugs in the USA is allowed, but only if stored in their original containers with the doctor's prescription printed. with you only the quantity of drugs actually necessary for the period of stay. If the drugs or devices are not in the original containers you must have a copy of the prescription or a letter from your doctor), as well as repellents  (pay attention to repellents because if they have the flammable logo they cannot be checked in the hold and if they exceed 100 ml not even in hand luggage), against mosquitoes and insects

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

For all the proposed destinations, the tourist resorts can be considered quite safe. However, it is recommended to adopt at least the same attentions and precautions that are usually used in the main cities of Italy. It is always advisable not to flaunt jewelry or objects of great value. In general, it is advisable not to travel with large sums of money in local currency but with the bare minimum and to make a photocopy of the passport, leaving the original kept in a safe place, together with all travel documents. The structures cannot always reflect European standards: the best way not to ruin your holidays unnecessarily is to arm yourself with a little patience and a spirit of adaptation, which also means respecting cultures other than ours. It is excluded that any presumption of its own could result in an implicit promise by the organizer who details the characteristics of the products explicitly in writing. On the contrary, the traveler is aware that peculiar receptive structures may have different characteristics with respect to common standards; for example, it is possible that by choosing hotels deriving from renovations of historic buildings they may have rooms without windows, or structures with particular locations (e.g. in places of geological or religious / cultural interest and in ecological reserves, etc.) '' acceptance of certain situations, local laws and / or regulations for the protection of the ecosystem, compliance with social conventions or other. It is always and in every appropriate place for personal safety to use common sense and never leave personal items unattended. In every country, if you want to photograph the locals, it is a sign of good manners to always ask before taking a photo.  It should be remembered that it is not allowed to photograph any oil or military or sensitive installations.
Behavior must generally be appropriate to local customs and respectful of local customs. During the month of Ramadan in Islamic countries it is necessary to refrain from eating, drinking and smoking in public during the day.

Medicines: it is recommended to carry life-saving medicines or in any case those to be used daily in your hand luggage and to carry any certificates or prescriptions from the attending physician. In the case of medicines to be kept in the refrigerator, check the description of each hotel for the presence of the same in the room and in any case report this need at the time of booking.

 

TIPS

It is a good practice to tip anyone who provides a service, as recognition for the  satisfaction of the service rendered. In some countries, tipping is a very common, if not almost mandatory, custom. Service in restaurants is not always included in the bill, so if it is satisfactory it is customary to leave at least 10% / 15% tip. In some cases, the tip is the only profit of the staff serving at the tables. It is customary to leave a similar percentage to the bartenders and a few coins to the hotel staff, especially the porters and the waitresses. In the United States, all prices displayed (restaurants, bars, shops, etc.) do not include taxes (the percentage varies from state to state) or tips.

 

CURRENCY AND CREDIT CARDS

Although Euros are now accepted in all destinations, it is always advisable and more convenient to have American Dollars.Credit cards are almost always required in hotels to guarantee extras, and being without them can, especially in the USA, be disadvantageous ( American Express and Diners not accepted in Cuba). It is highly recommended to have a credit card issued by a leading company.

 

SOUVENIR

In many seaside resorts, street vendors are very insistent. It is recommended to be careful when purchasing shells, corals, plants, flowers etc. which may not be exportable and / or lead to the application of important financial penalties. Always ask for the payment receipt and a written guarantee from the shopkeeper that the object is exportable. (According to the CITES)
