In the event that any subsequent changes require to be made to a booking (including group booking), or in respect to any element thereof, such change shall solely be effected by the person having made the original booking and who is identified as being the "lead Passenger" or "booking agent" on the booking system.
The Terms and Conditions do not affect your statutory rights and we reserve the right to change the booking terms and conditions on this site at any time.
The Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement and understanding between us and any Passenger in relation to their subject matter. If you do not agree to these terms you may not use this web site.
The prices stated on our website are inclusive of all fixed, non-optional applicable taxes, supplements, fees and charges ("Taxes"). Passengers who want to book a return flight should indicate this when entering their flight details. You will then see the corresponding price for each one-way flight, or each sector price in circumstances where a return flight must be purchased. Once all flights have been chosen, the total fare including all Taxes and other optional fees and charges (if any) will be displayed before your booking is confirmed.
We reserve the right to increase or decrease fares, at any time, without notice. In the event that a fare decreases after you have made your booking, we are unable to refund any difference between the fare paid and any lower fare, which may subsequently become available.
TaxesWhen you make your booking, we will tell you of all the Taxes and optional fee and charges (if any), which will apply to your fare at the time of booking. Taxes change constantly and may be imposed or changed after the date on which we have issued a booking confirmation to you. You will have to pay us any increases in such Taxes, and similarly, if any Taxes you have paid to us are reduced or abolished, you will be entitled to claim a refund. Such right shall not apply in respect of any surcharge paid in respect of aviation fuel costs. Certain departure taxes or airport levies, may not be shown on your booking confirmation, and may be levied at certain international airports. You should ensure you have adequate funds for these taxes which are payable locally.
Full payment is required as soon as you confirm your booking. Payment is by PayPal, or credit or debit card only. To process debit or credit card payments, we use PayPal's Braintree payment service platform. There are no charges for payment by PayPal, credit card or debit card.
All bookings are non-refundable. Changes may, however, be made to your booking, subject to availability, as well as the conditions and charges stated on this website.
Should you instruct your credit/debit card company to "charge back" any payment(s) properly due from you in respect of your booking, we will charge you a fee of £10 per incident and associated costs. We further reserve the right to cancel your booking and/or take legal action against you for all outstanding payment(s).
A legally binding contract will be formed when we send you the booking confirmation with your booking reference by e-mail or by post (when booking through our customer services call centre). We recommend that you take careful note of your booking reference because you will need it to check in and for any queries. If any detail on the booking confirmation is not correct tell us or your travel agent immediately. If there is an obvious error on the booking confirmation we reserve the right to correct it as soon as we become aware of it, but we will do this within 7 days of issuing the booking confirmation or, if your departure is within 7 days, no later than 24 hours before you go . If any of these changes are not acceptable then you will be entitled to a full refund.
Please note that we can only check in the person named in the booking confirmation.
Both we and the Carrier reserve the right to refuse carriage to any person who has made a booking in violation of any applicable law or licence or of any contract or regulation made by the Carrier or any applicable tour operator.
Carriage of skis/snowboards by air
As more skiers and snowboarders take their own equipment on holiday, charter airlines are finding it harder to cope with the extra weight, increasing the risk of luggage being off-loaded from aircraft. In common with all other major winter sports operators, we have therefore introduced a paid for service. Ski carriage can be purchased per set of skis or snowboard and not per bag, with a maximum weight limit of 15kg. If you're planning to take two sets of skis or two snowboards in one bag, you must purchase two ski carriage extras, however the total weight must not exceed 23kg.
Ski/board carriage can be added during online booking, or over the phone via our customer services.
If you wish to have skis or snowboards added to your booking, these must be added at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your skis/board do not make it on your flight, the charge will be refunded, your skis forwarded to resort free of charge and hire arranged until they arrive. For each pair of skis/board that you have paid carriage for and that does not arrive, you will receive hire for 1 set of skis and/or snowboard.
If you do not pre-book skis/board carriage, there is no guarantee they will be carried, but if accepted, a minimum £50 charge will be levied at the check-in desk. This charge does not apply to low cost/scheduled airlines – unless operating as a charter – where ski equipment may be included in the total baggage allowance and additional charges may apply if this is exceeded. Customers will be charged a one-way fixed price for bringing skis/board back to the UK.
Please note, ski/snowboard boots contribute to the overall luggage allowance and must be checked in as hold luggage.
If you are buying a flight from TUI UK Limited (ATOL number 2524) operated by a third party Carrier your flight will be ATOL protected. For the purposes of this section "we/us/our" means TUI UK Limited only.
Your financial protection
When you buy an ATOL protected flight or flight inclusive holiday from us you will receive an ATOL Certificate. This lists what is financially protected, where you can get information on what this means for you and who to contact if things go wrong.
We, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL Certificate, will provide you with the services listed on the ATOL Certificate, or a suitable alternative. In some cases, where neither we nor the supplier are able to do so for reasons of insolvency, an alternative ATOL holder may provide you with the services you have bought or a suitable alternative, at no extra cost to you. You agree to accept that in those circumstances the alternative ATOL holder will perform those obligations and you agree to pay any money outstanding to be paid by you under your contract to that alternative ATOL holder. However, you also agree that in some cases it will not be possible to appoint an alternative ATOL holder, in which case you will be entitled to make a claim under the ATOL scheme, or your credit card issuer where applicable.
If we, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL Certificate, are unable to provide the services listed (or a suitable alternative, through an alternative ATOL holder or otherwise) for reasons of insolvency, the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust may make a payment to (or confer a benefit on) you under the ATOL scheme. You agree that in return for such a payment or benefit you assign absolutely to those Trustees any claims which you have or may have arising out of or relating to the non-provision of the services, including any claim against us, the travel agent (or your credit card issuer where applicable). You also agree that any such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if that other body has paid sums you have claimed under the ATOL scheme.
All money accepted from you by a travel agent acting as our agent is held by that agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust at all times, but subject to the agent's obligation to pay it to us for so long as we do not fail. If we do fail, any money held at that time by the agent, or subsequently accepted from you by the agent, is and continues to be held by that agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust without any obligation to pay that money to us.
If you're flying with TUI, save time at the airport with our online check-in service. Simply drop your luggage off and you're free to head through to the departure lounge. If you've chosen Select Your Seat, Seats with Extra Space or Seats with Extra Legroom, online check-in opens 14 days before your outward flight. If not, you can check in online from 7 days before. To see if online check-in is ready for your flights, visit our Flight Extras website and enter your booking reference, the surname of the lead passenger, your travel date and select Travelski as the holiday type. If it's available, you'll then be able to click the check-in button and print your boarding passes.
When checking in at the airport all you need is your booking confirmation or travel document (where one has been issued), as well as valid photo proof of identity. For international journeys you must present your passport or EU national ID; for domestic/Channel Islands journeys you may alternatively present a valid citizen card, photographic driving license, photographic student card issued by the educational institution, forces ID card, airport/airline employees security ID pass, police warrant card/badge.

An infant must be aged less than 24 months on the day of travel, and must be older than 14 days for health and safety reasons. Every infant must be accompanied by an adult at least 16 years old and must travel on the adult's lap. Charges for infants vary depending on the route and length of flight and will be detailed in the booking process. Every adult can only accompany one infant and carriage is restricted to 10% of seat capacity. Infants are not entitled to their own seat.
Children aged 2 and older must pay the full fare.
TUI will not accept unaccompanied minors under 14 years of age for carriage. A passenger aged 16 years or over (on the same reservation) must always accompany children under the age of 14 years. TUI will only carry unaccompanied young persons aged 14 or 15 years who are able to travel unassisted. A parent or legal guardian must accompany the young person to check-in, and a valid photo-id in addition to the country specific documentation (detailed below) must be presented. We strongly recommend that parents or guardians of unaccompanied young persons remain in the airport until the flight has departed.
Note: Certain other Carriers (e.g. non-TUI flights) do not have the same young persons policy (as above), please refer to these carriers directly before making your booking.
A notarised letter from parent, or legal guardian, authorizing travel.
Special regulations apply to young persons of French nationality being less than 18 years of age; when leaving France and travelling either accompanied or unaccompanied (especially those who are unaccompanied by their legal guardian and are not in possession of their own valid passport, or those who are not mentioned on the valid passport of the accompanying person) must hold an "Attestation d'Autorisation de Sortie" ("Exit Approval"). If French minors over 7 years of age are travelling on their parent's passport, this document must show a photograph of the child.
The age of children relates to the whole of the period when they are away including the day of return. If a child's birthday occurs during the holiday including the date of return then the new age must be stated. Travel may be refused if the date of birth according to the child's passport is different to that on the booking confirmation.
