1.1 In these conditions unless the context otherwise requires:
“Agreement” means an agreement for the supply of goods and/or services consisting of a signed front sheet and these conditions;
“Confidential Information” means all information of the Supplier (in whatever medium including in written, oral, visual or electronic form and whether before or after the date of this Agreement) including all business, financial, commercial, technical, operational, organisational, legal, management and marketing information; and “written” or “in writing” includes faxes and any non-transitory form of visible reproduction of words and email but not text messaging via mobile phone.
2.1 These conditions shall apply to any and all sales of goods and/or supply of services by the Supplier to any purchaser (the “Customer”) and shall apply in place of and prevail over any terms or conditions contained in or referred to in the Customer’s purchase order or in correspondence or elsewhere or implied by any previous course of dealing between the parties unless specifically agreed in writing by an authorised representative of the Supplier.
2.2 For the duration of the Agreement the Customer shall use no third party or agency other than the Supplier for the supply of travel booking services.
3.1 The Customer shall provide a valid credit card with such sufficient credit limit as the Supplier (acting reasonably) shall notify the Customer of in advance.
(a) debit the credit card referred to in clause 3.1 may incur additional credit card fees subject to selected carrier ticketing rules; and/or
(b) cancel the Agreement (and any held forward bookings) or suspend the services and work under any other agreements with the Customer; and
(c) charge the Customer interest (both before and after any judgment) on the amount unpaid, at the rate of seven per cent (7%) per annum above Barclays Bank plc base rate from time to time (or such other bank as the Supplier may from time to time specify), until payment in cleared funds; and
3.2.2 the Supplier reasonably considers that, for any reason other than a bona fide dispute in relation to the whole of the amount outstanding, the Customer may not make payment for the goods and/or services by the due date, it may:
(a) make such changes to the terms of payment for the goods and/or services as it reasonably thinks fit before supplying further goods and/or services, including requiring payment in advance and/or a guarantee; and
(b) refuse to supply further goods and/or services unless and until such payment terms are complied with.
3.2.3 If any credit card payment made pursuant to clause 3.2.1(a) is declined the Supplier shall apply an additional £25 administration fee to the balance owed by the Customer.
4.1 Payment of invoices shall be made in full at the time of purchase.
4.2 The price payable for the goods and services supplied by the Supplier shall be as agreed between the Supplier and the Buyer at the time of the order. Unless otherwise stated, the prices quoted are exclusive of VAT and any other relevant taxes. The Customer shall also reimburse to the Supplier all costs and expenses reasonably incurred by the Supplier in the performance of the services.
4.3 The Customer shall ensure that an authorised signatory, director or managing director of the Customer is available to authorise payment of any invoices before the due date.
4.5 All payments shall be made by the Customer in the currency in which they are expressed by transfer to such bank account as the Supplier may from time to time notify in writing to the Customer.
5.1 Where a ticket is refundable, the Customer must advise the Supplier as soon as reasonably practicable and provide the ticket to the Supplier so that the Supplier may forward the ticket to the relevant airline or rail company for a refund. If the Supplier receives any refund, it shall forward it onto the Customer less any cancellation and administration charges. Refunds for part used tickets are always less than pro-rata and may have no refund value whatsoever. Refunds for airline tickets usually take 6-8 weeks to process however this may take longer. Tickets returned more than one year from date of issue are classed as expired by the airline and generally have no refund value at all. Lost or stolen airline tickets may not be re-issued by some airlines and duplicate or replacement tickets may then have to be purchased locally, at the local fare. Even if replacement airline tickets are purchased, certain airlines will not issue refunds for lost/stolen tickets. The maximum time limit for a refund of a rail ticket is 2 months from the date of issue: it is the responsibility of the Customer to provide the ticket to the Supplier in a reasonable time to be within such deadline. The Supplier can only apply for refunds once it has been notified that the Customer (or its employee) is not travelling.
5.2 Refunds will be applied to the Clients account only when credit is received from IATA. Payment cannot be deducted from the statement before a credit is received from IATA which can take approximately 6-8 weeks to process.

The delivery date for goods or services will be noted on each purchase order. Time for delivery shall be of the essence.

If the senior officers fail to resolve the dispute in the allotted time then the parties shall have the option to enter into an Alternative Dispute Resolution procedure with the assistance of a mediator agreed by the parties. Any such procedure will be according to the rules and procedures of the Centre for Dispute Resolution or such other similar body as is agreed.
12.1.3 If with the assistance of the mediator the parties reach a settlement such settlement shall be reduced to writing and once signed by the duly authorised representative of each of the parties shall remain binding on the parties.
