Navigating Your Journey: Essential Travel Information

Travel Information

At 123Flights.co.uk, our aim is to make your travel experience as seamless as possible. Below, you’ll find important and useful information to help you plan your trip effectively. We’ve also provided links to some recommended websites that offer valuable travel insights.

Passport:
For British and Irish passport holders, we can advise on the specific requirements. However, if you have passports endorsed in any way or hold passports from other countries, please check with the relevant embassy for accurate information. Ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months beyond your return date.

Visas:
Clients are responsible for obtaining visas. Visa requirements vary by country and can change, so we recommend contacting the relevant embassy well in advance for the most up-to-date information.

Health:
Before your departure, consult your doctor for recommended vaccinations and health advice for your travel destination. The Department of Health’s ‘The Traveller’s Guide to Health’ (available at 0800 555 777) provides valuable health information for specific destinations.

Safety:
We prioritize your safety. If the Foreign Office advises against visiting a particular country, we take that guidance seriously. While many of our featured destinations may have different political and social conditions, we recommend vigilance and discretion, especially concerning personal belongings and attire.

For the latest travel advice, visit the [Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) (www.fco.gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo). It offers country-specific information to help you prepare for your journey.

Choosing Your Holiday:
If you have questions about a destination’s suitability, contact us for assistance. You can also gather additional information from libraries, tourist offices, and online resources.

Hotel Standards:
Hotel standards can vary by country and even within the same country. Carefully read hotel descriptions to understand what to expect. Unless specified otherwise, accommodation is in standard rooms.

Triple/Quad Rooms:
Rooms for three or four guests may have existing beds or extra beds, which can be cramped.

Views:
Rooms described as having specific views (e.g., sea, pool, city) may have partial views due to natural obstructions like trees or buildings.

Dress Code:
While most hotels have a relaxed dress code, some guidelines apply. Casual elegance is typically expected in resorts, while city hotels may require more formal attire in common areas during the evening.

Check-In & Check-Out:
Hotel rooms are generally available after 3 pm on the day of check-in and should be vacated by 11 am to 12 noon on the departure day. Late check-in or check-out may be possible for an additional fee.

Room Upgrades/Honeymoon/Anniversary Offers:
Room upgrades usually apply to the next room category. While we strive to fulfill upgrade requests, double beds for honeymoon couples cannot be guaranteed.

All-Inclusive:
All-inclusive packages usually cover meals and local drinks during specified hours. Be aware that alcoholic beverages may be local and served in plastic containers. Imported drinks and certain facilities may incur extra charges.

Alcohol:
Liquor laws vary by country, particularly in the USA. Ensure you comply with local regulations, carry identification to prove your age, and follow local rules regarding alcohol possession and transportation.

Children on Holiday:
Baby cot charges and infant meal costs are paid directly to the hotel. Airlines typically allow one infant per adult. We don’t recommend escorted tours, coach tours, or safaris for children under 10, and some destinations may not be suitable for very young children.

Holiday Seasons:
Most of our destinations are available year-round. Off-peak periods offer uncrowded beaches and cost savings, but some facilities may scale down. Peak periods can be livelier but may lead to busier facilities.

Public Holidays:
Expect public holidays in most countries, with potential disruptions and reduced facilities. Consider these when choosing your travel dates.

Other Hotel Guests:
Hotels may host conventions or groups at certain times. While we cannot control such bookings, we are happy to recommend hotels that align with your preferences.

Meals:
Included meals are typically based on set menus or voucher systems. Meals commence with dinner on the arrival day and conclude with breakfast (half-board) or lunch (full-board) on departure day. No refunds are given for meals not taken. Special diets may not always be accommodated.

Upgrading Your Flight:
Consider upgrading to enhance your journey, particularly on long-haul flights.

Flight Seat Requests:
If you have specific seat preferences, check in early, as seat allocation is subject to availability and airline policies.

Direct Flights:
Direct flights do not require changing aircraft en route, but stops may occur for re-fueling or passenger boarding.

Smoking on Flights:
Most airlines have banned smoking on flights.

Reconfirming Return/Onward Flights:
Follow reconfirmation instructions on your invoice or travel documents to avoid additional costs due to non-compliance.

Special Requests:
Inform us of special requests during booking. While we’ll pass them on to hotels and airlines, we can’t guarantee fulfillment.

Water/Electricity Supplies:
In some destinations, water and electricity services may struggle to meet demand. Power cuts and water restrictions may occur.

Accommodation in the Tropics:
Insects in rooms are common in tropical destinations and not indicative of cleanliness. Some views may be partially obstructed by vegetation.

Water Sports and Activities:
Participate in water sports and activities with caution. Operators may require competence assessments for safety reasons.

Sports Facilities:
Hotel sports facilities vary, and equipment may not meet championship standards.

Behavior:
Travelers are responsible for their behavior and any damage to property. Disruptive or inappropriate conduct may result in termination of arrangements.

Ticket Dispatch and Travel Documents:
Tickets are typically dispatched seven days before departure. Ensure you check your flight timings on your tickets carefully.

Airline Ticket Refunds:
Ticket refunds are subject to airline assessment and can take 8 – 12 weeks. Lost or stolen tickets may require replacement at local rates.

Taxes:
We will advise you of all pre-paid taxes. Departure taxes may be payable locally and subject to currency exchange rates.

Insurance:
We recommend purchasing travel insurance. Visit our insurance section for coverage options and prices.

Building & Development Works:
Many hotels and resorts undergo development works. While we have no control over this, we will notify you of significant work whenever possible.

Please contact us if you have any questions or need further assistance. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities.
