Terms and Conditions

You must complete and sign the Booking Form enclosed. You must accept the Terms and Conditions on behalf of all your party.

Brochure Accuracy
Tour prices in this brochure are subject to change in the event of additional levies or substantial variation to exchange rates and fuel costs after publication.

The itineraries in this brochure are published as a guide and may vary. A detailed day-to-day itinerary will be sent with your travel documents two weeks before departure.

Published schedules or any other indication of timings are correct at the time of going to press but could be subject to variation, eg. Flight re-scheduling, change of airline.

We will arrange for you to attend Mass each day. This may be in the local language, as we cannot guarantee a priest leader on all departures. Opportunity of Mass on the first and last days of the pilgrimage is subject to your actual arrival and departure times.

Payments
The completed booking form must be sent to Kensington Travel along with a non-refundable deposit of £50 per person for coach pilgrimages and £100.00 for air packages. In the event of cancellation of the tour by the passenger for any reason whatsoever or failure to pay the entire cost, the said deposit shall stand forfeited. All cheques must be made payable to Kensington Travel. On payment of the deposit amount, you will receive an official receipt from Kensington Travel for the amount you paid.

Balance of your holiday cost must be paid at least SIX weeks prior to your departure. If you make your booking within four weeks of your departure you must pay the full cost at the time of booking. If the balance is not paid in full and on time we reserve the right to treat the holiday as cancelled by you.

Your Financial Protection
The air holiday package shown is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is ATOL 9649. When you buy an ATOL protected air holiday package from us. you will receive a Confirmation Invoice (or via our authorised agent through which you booked) confirming your arrangements and your protection under our Air Travel Organiser’s Licence number [9649]. In the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you have paid to us for an advance booking. For further information visit the ATOL website at www.atol.org.uk

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 the flights and flight-inclusive holidays are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it.
