Such events are, for example, weather conditions, epidemics, fires, floods, earthquakes, disasters, strikes, political events, war or threat of war, hijackings, terrorist acts, riots, etc.

6. INCLUDING SERVICES
Group air travel is based on economy class tickets and is based on group fares that require a certain minimum number of travelers (which varies depending on the trip) and are subject to stay and stopover restrictions. Air travel of individual travelers is carried out with seat tickets depending on the preference of travelers. Airlines can change the routes and types of aircraft without any warning. In no case can our Company intervene in the airline in order to limit any intermediate stations and the waiting time for the responses. The terms on the back of the air ticket, issued in the name of the traveler, are the customer's contract directly with the airline, in which our company has mediated to secure the seat and not the air transport. Although these terms are based on international conventions, there are certain airlines that limit or exclude their obligation to be subject to international conventions.
The airlines have the exclusive control and responsibility for the performed air routes, and our Company cannot intervene and bears no responsibility in this regard. Thus, it is indicatively mentioned that IPSIPETIS TRAVEL is not responsible for any changes that occur from the airlines for operational reasons in the types of aircraft, in the flight schedule, in the intermediate stations (transit) etc., in the departure or arrival times of the flights etc. , as well as for the selection of seats (seat number, smoking or non-smoking seats, etc.), for any larger number of reservations than the number of aircraft seats (overbooking) etc .. In the last e.g. In this case of overbooking, it is possible that there is even a confirmed and coded position, but the airline for any reason refuses to board the aircraft, without the company bearing any responsibility.
If the domestic flights (add on, domestic) are not requested during the availability request but with a delay, in case the corresponding fare is not found you will be charged at system prices (full fare). Any modification cancellation requested after the ticket is issued, has cancellations. Domestic flights are booked with a minimum of five hours from the international flight. In case the client or the office that represents him does not wish to comply with it, he assumes the responsibility but also the reservation and issuance of the ticket.
The category of hotels is in accordance with the tourist organization of the country to which they belong. However, since there is no single internationally accepted criterion for this ranking, it makes sense for different hotels to differ from each other, even if they belong to the same category. These cases are mentioned in the description of the programs.
Unless otherwise specified, accommodation is in standard rooms. If the traveler paying the difference receives a single room, this in no way means that his room will be spacious or in a better position. If you wish to have a double bed in a double room you must tell us during your registration. Our company will try to ensure it for you, but it can not guarantee its achievement. It is recommended to avoid triple rooms, which are usually double with the addition of a third rollaway bed and therefore not comfortable. The choice of rooms, floor, etc., is made by the hotel management alone, which is solely responsible for all services provided by the hotel (meals, room-service, etc.).
According to international regulations hotel rooms are delivered at 12:00 and picked up at 14:00, regardless of the arrival and departure time of guests. In case you wish to book the room longer than scheduled or pick it up earlier, you will have to agree with the hotel reception and pay the amount requested. As our company does not exercise any control over hotels and room reservations, it is possible to be notified at the last minute by the destination hotel that rooms reserved for travelers cannot be made available for any reason (such as when the hotel has booked a larger number of rooms than its capacity = overbooking, etc.). In this case the Company will replace the room with another hotel room of the same category or if this is not possible with a lower class hotel room and will return the difference to the customer, without the Company bearing any further responsibility or obligation.
Coach:Changing places is mandatory every day, by all travelers without exception.
Meal Plan: In the choice of half board (breakfast and a main meal) the choice of lunch or dinner is made by the Company depending on the program of each day. The focus of the excursionists is group. Drinks are not included in the price.
Leader / Guide
Our organized group trips are accompanied by an experienced and language partner, who takes care of the smooth execution of the program and a) receives the group from the day of departure to the day of return to Greece or b) receives the group at the first night station and delivers it to the last night station, depending on the excursion schedule. During the tours, the Leader / Escort works as a translator for the local English speaking guide. On board the flight attendant has no more rights than any other traveler, so any omissions or responsibilities during the flight should only be claimed by the airline as defined by the Warsaw Pact.
The company reserves the right to replace the leader / escort during the excursion due to exceptional circumstances
In some cases the escort is carried out with local representatives. The local representatives usually meet the client at his hotel by appointment and give him the basic information and directions for the destination. The responsibilities of local representatives do not include:
- the pick-up and drop-off of the group from and to the airport to the respective destination by a local English-speaking guide.
- His participation in his guided tours and optional excursions
