The Client’s Authority:
The person requesting quotations or estimates or making a booking or to whom any services are rendered, is deemed to have read and accepted the Conditions and to have the authority to do so on behalf of the person in whose name the estimate or quotation or reservation is requested and/or provided and/or the person to whom the services are rendered (collectively referred to as ‘the Client(s)).
Agent of a Disclosed Principal:
As a Travel Agent, Travelwings provides services as agents of disclosed Principals engaged in or associated with the travel industry, such as airlines. Accordingly, Travelwings shall not be liable for any loss, damage, injury, illness, harm or death which any Client may suffer as a result of any act or omission on the part of or the failure of the Principal to fulfill their obligations, whether in relation to travel arrangements, accommodation or otherwise. The content of the ticket issued by the Principal shall constitute the sole contract between the Principal and the Client and any right to compensation the Client may have will be solely against the Principal. Provided that Travelwingswill provide the identity of all the Principals as well as the terms and conditions of booking, if so requested by the Client.
Enquiries and Reservations:
Once the Client has filled in all applicable fields to initiate an enquiry regarding a particular destination, trip, tour or mode of travel on www.travelwings.com.ng or has responded to an advertisement verbally or in writing, via e-mail or the internet or has, without reference to any of the aforesaid, asked for more details through telephone (collectively referred to as ‘the Enquiry'), Travelwings will prepare and provide the Client with an estimated cost of the Enquiry (online,by e-mail or telephone) (‘the Estimate'). This Estimate is deemed accepted by the Client when the Client proceeds with the steps as specified on the Website or accepts the Estimate verbally over the phone or via email. Full payment of the total value of the Estimate (‘the Price') as specified in the Estimate is required in order to confirm reservations with Principals.
Once the online booking or booking as affected by the Travel Agent has been completed and the Client has authorized Travelwings to process the payment by submitting the Booking for reservation, the Client will be supplied with an email that will contain the final details of their Booking (‘the Booking Confirmation Form'). In the case of air tickets, full payment for the Booking needs to be made by midnight on the day that the Booking was made in order to guarantee the estimate quoted according to the Booking Confirmation Form.
Acknowledgement of Destination Selection
The Client acknowledges that it has selected the itinerary and destination(s) constituting the Booking based on information gleaned from the internet or from other sources. The Client also acknowledges that the internet booking has been compiled and is managed and up-dated by the Principal over which Travelwings has no control. Accordingly, Travelwings cannot and does not guarantee that the itinerary and/or any destinations will comply in whole or in part with such advertised on the internet or from other sources. Any right of recourse in that regard will be solely against the Principal.
The full payment is due immediately by Visa, MasterCard, or Verve card, Electronic Funds Transfer, Cash Deposit at a bank, Cash Deposit at the office or Quickteller ATM payments, whichever is applicable. If the full payment is not received by midnight on the day that the Booking was made, Travelwings or Third Party Service Provider (as the case may be) involved reserves the full right to cancel the Booking. In the event that payment has been made after the aforementioned deadline, the Client will be liable for any difference in price should the Client still want to proceed with the Booking at the altered price.
Travelwings is a Nigerian company and all transactions are processed in Nigerian Naira or United States Dollars. All payments shall therefore be made in the equivalent local currency in accordance with the prevailing conversion rate as published from time to time by the Agent. Therefore conversion charges shall be levied if payment is made from another country and/or in another currency other than Nigerian Naira. This fee is driven by the global treasury of the applicable credit card and is impacted by the change in daily exchange rates.
Prices are quoted at the prevailing daily exchange rate. Until Travelwings has received payment of the Price in full, it reserves the right to charge any fluctuations to the Client's account and the Client undertakes to pay for any such fluctuation on demand. The onus will be on the Client to check that there have been no changes in the Price prior to making full and final payment. Airfares are subject to the price and conditions quoted by the airlines. However, once payment of the Price in full has been received, the Price is guaranteed provided that the payment was made by midnight on the day that the Booking was made. Should the Client be a group booking and the group number deviates from the number required for the Booking, the Principal may reserve the right to re-cost the Price and raise a surcharge. Should any Client refuse to accept and pay such surcharge, it may result in the Principal cancelling the Booking and refunding any payment made less the surcharge by the Agent and/or Principals (Travelwings will be entitled to retain any service fees charged).
Payment of Fees for Services Rendered
All Fees and costs incurred by Travelwings in booking and servicing the Client’s travel reservation shall be paid for by the Client.
When Travel Documents are Released
Documents (vouchers, itineraries etc.) are only prepared and released on receipt of payment of the Price in full.
Valid Travel Documents:
It is the entirely the Client's responsibility to ensure that all passports and visas are current, valid, obtained on time, and will be valid for six months after return to their home country and that any vaccinations, inoculations, prophylactic (e.g. for malaria) and the like, where required, have been obtained. The Client is strongly advised to check the relevant requirements with Travelwings before travelling. Travelwings will endeavor to assist the Client but such assistance will be at Travelwings’ discretion and the Client acknowledges that in doing so, Travelwings is not assuming any obligation or liability and the Client indemnifies Travelwings against any consequences of non-compliance. It is the Client's duty to familiarize him/herself with the inherent dangers of and mental and/or physical condition required for the Proposed Travel Arrangements.
Certain parts covered by the Client’s itinerary may be areas where there is a high-risk of malaria and other tropical diseases. The Client is strongly advised to take the necessary precautions in this regard and hence we recommend that the Client checks with their medical practitioner before departure or a medical practitioner well versed in tropical diseases immediately upon arrival at any tropical or sub-tropical destination. If this has not been done prior to departure, it is imperative to do so upon return.
An amendment fee per Booking may be levied for any changes to the confirmed itinerary and or ticket. This is charged in addition to the change fees charged by the Principal and other Third Party Service Providers.
In the event of the Client cancelling the Booking, Travelwings shall have the right to either claim an amount or to retain an amount of the payment as cancellation fees payable to Travelwings. The Principals may reserve the right to cancel any services prior to departure, in which event the entire payment for the ticket will be refunded to the Client without any further obligation on the part of Travelwings.
Travelwings will charge a fee for processing the request for refund. (Clients should refer to the 'Refunds' section of these Conditions, as well as the cancellation provisions contained in the Principal's Conditions and the Website. Principals may charge cancellation fees over and above those stated here).
In the unlikely event of there being an unscheduled extension to the final itinerary caused by flight re-scheduling, flight delays, bad weather, strikes or any other cause which is beyond the control of Travelwings, its agents or the Principal, it is understood that the Client will bear the expenses relating to these unscheduled extensions (hotel accommodation etc.).
Amendments to Itinery
While every effort is made to keep to the final itinerary in accordance with the Client’s application, Principals and/or Travelwings reserve the right to make changes intended for the Client's convenience e.g. in some cases, weather conditions can necessitate an alteration in the itinerary and this does not constitute any reason for a refund. It is the Client's duty to check each amendment to the itinerary.
Client’s Responsibility and Indemnity
The Proposed Travel Arrangements are made on the express condition that Travelwings, its employees and agents, shall not be responsible for, and shall be exempt from all liability in respect of loss, damage, accident, injury, illness, harm, trauma, death, delay or inconvenience to any Client (which shall be deemed to include the heirs, executors, administrators or assigns of the Client), their luggage, or other property, wherever, whenever and however the same may occur. The Client indemnifies and holds harmless Travelwings, its employees and agents accordingly. Travelwings, its employees and agents shall furthermore not be liable for any indirect and/or consequential loss or damages whatsoever.
It is strongly advised that all Clients take out adequate insurance cover in order to cover instances such as cancellation due to illness, accident or injury, personal accident and personal liability, loss of or damage to baggage and sports equipment. (Note that is not an exhaustive list). Travelwings will not be responsible or liable if the Client fails to take adequate insurance cover. It shall not be obligatory upon Travelwings to effect insurance for the Client except upon detailed instructions given in writing and all insurance effected by Travelwings pursuant to such instruction will be subject to such exceptions and conditions as may be imposed by the insurance company or underwriters accepting the risk. Travelwings shall not be obliged to obtain separate cover for any risks so excluded. Should the insurers dispute their liability for any reason, the Client will have recourse against the insurers only. Please note that various credit card companies may offer limited levels of travel insurance, which Travelwings does not consider sufficient cover for international travel. The Client is advised to check with their respective credit card companies in order to obtain the specific details of the cover offered.

Travelwings shall be entitled to institute any legal proceedings arising out of or in connection with this contract in any Court of competent Jurisdiction in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
