Additionally, flight times, carriers and routes in the brochure are given for guidance only as there may be changes. Final details will be shown on your tickets. Holiday package or excursion itineraries may change or be different from those described in the brochure as a result of local conditions, weather conditions, annual events. Travelmarvel will endeavour to notify you of any significant changes prior to your departure.

Flight timings are set by airlines and affected by events outside our control. Scheduled and charter flight timings, and days of operation are also subject to change. T ravelmarvel will advise you of any significant changes as soon as it is informed by the airline. Minor timing changes will be shown on your flight tickets.

IF WE CHANGE OR CANCEL YOUR HOLIDAY BEFORE YOUR DEPARTURE: Travelmarvel endeavours to provide you with all the services confirmed to you at the time of your booking. However, we plan arrangements a long time in advance of your departure date using independent suppliers such as airline, hotels etc., over whom we have no direct control. On occasions changes do have to be made, and Travelmarvel reserves the right to cancel or amend holiday packages/excursions accordingly.
