Drop off and Collection
Please note that the transfer provider will always aim to drop and/or collect you as close to your accommodation as possible. In some instances it may not always be possible for the vehicle to take you onto the premises due to circumstances outside of the transfer provider's control. Please note that shuttles are not able to make drops at private addresses (including villas) nor property management companies, or at hotels where the approach roads are inaccessible to coaches. Where the shuttle coach cannot stop directly outside the hotel due to accessibility issues, the drop-off will occur as near as possible to the hotel.
Please be aware that there may be a wait of 1 hour for your shuttle from the time you locate the suppliers Airport desk or representative (lost luggage and duty free shopping may cause customers to wait for the full maximum waiting time.) and half an hour on departure.
Confirmation of return pick-up times
Shuttle transfers have multiple pick-ups, therefore the departure collection time may change from that shown on the customers voucher so it is vitally important and compulsory that the customer reconfirms their pick –up times 24 hours prior to departure. Holiday Republics will not accept responsibility for missed shuttle transfers and/or subsequent missed flights due to non reconfirmation of pick up times.
The transfers featured on our website operate to at least the minimum standards required by local legislation. These local standards vary from country to country and may not be the same as in your home country.
Standard Luggage Allowance
The allowance per person, for all vehicle types, is one standard size suitcase (approximately 70cm high, 47cm wide and 21cm deep),and one small piece of hand luggage.
On a Private Transfer, if you are bringing pushchairs or fold-down wheelchairs, please book a vehicle large enough to ensure you and your belongings can all travel in comfort and safety, for example if four people are travelling with luggage and a pushchair, please book a vehicle for five or more people. Private taxi transfers may be provided with either a taxi, people carrier , or minibus type vehicle.
On a Shuttle Service sports equipment, such as ski or golf bags, surf boards or bicycles, is classed as excess luggage and is normally chargeable. We reserve the right to not-accept any excess luggage which has not be notified and confirmed on the time of the booking. Please check with us before booking.
On a Private Transfer, if you bring large suitcases or other excess luggage (including pushchairs and/or wheelchairs) that cannot fit inside the vehicle, you may be asked to pay for a second vehicle.
Alterations by your Travel Provider
In some instances the transfer provider may alter or cancel your booking, in such circumstances we will inform you immediately.
Please note neither the transfer provider or Holiday Republics are responsible for any additional costs incurred as a result of this, nor will they be obliged to pay compensation.
Holiday Republics and the transfer provider will always endeavour to make sure that your transfer service is provided, even when flights are delayed, or affected by circumstances outside of your control.
However, please be aware that it is your responsibility to make Holiday Republics or the transfer provider aware of any delays; it is not always possible to predict and/ or obtain information with regard to such instances. As a result neither Holiday Republics nor the transfer provider accepts responsibility for missed transfer services due to delayed, postponed, or other problems affecting flights.
In the event a return flight is missed owing to a delay with the transfer service which is out of the transfer provider's control, they will not be responsible for any additional costs incurred nor will compensation be due.
Neither Holidays Republics nor the Travel Provider accept responsibility for transfer services not received as a result of incorrect information provided by you at the time of booking.
The transfer provider reserves the right to terminate without notice the arrangements of any customer whose behaviour, in their opinion, is likely to cause annoyance, distress or danger to other customers or any third party.
If you are prevented from travelling because you appear to any person in authority to be unfit to travel, or likely to cause discomfort or disturbance to other passengers, the Travel Provider’s responsibility for your transfer will cease. In these circumstances full cancellation charges will apply and no refund will be given. Furthermore, the transfer provider shall be under no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses you may incur as a result of the service being terminated.
When you book a transfer service through Holiday Republics you accept responsibility for any damage to the transfer vehicle caused by you or a member of your party and you are liable to reimburse the transfer provider before you return home. You also agree to indemnify us against any claims (including legal costs) made against us or on behalf of the transfer provider.
Booking voucher confirmation
Your booking confirmation will be sent to you immediately by automated email, after full payment has been received from Holidays Republic.

Your voucher will provide the address of your accommodation and a local office contact number. This should be handed in upon your arrival.
Different hotels specify different maximum ages for passengers to be classed as children, though the most common maximum child age is 12. Any discounts are usually based on children sharing with two full paying adults. If you are travelling with children, you will be asked to enter the ages of the children travelling with you. The age(s) you enter must be the ages at the time of travel, up to and including the day of departure. In both hotels and apartments, any room or board supplements are usually payable at the adult rate.
Number of Nights
Most accommodation is available on a nightly basis, although some accommodations require a minimum stay of 3 or even 7 nights. The number of nights stated in the price online refers to the number of nights the accommodation has been reserved for you. Some flights may be night flights; when you arrive in resort your accommodation will only be available if you have reserved it for that night.
What is included in the price?
Hotel and apartment prices shown our websites are shown, based upon the information you supply, inclusive of all taxes, service charges and the meal arrangements specified below.
Not included are local resort charges, or charges for cots, which are occasionally levied direct by the hotel, details of which can be obtained before you depart on request.
* Hotels may have varying levels of "All Inclusive" – please refer to the description listed under your chosen accommodation.
The hotel ratings featured in our website are the Travel Provider's own ratings and are based on official tourist board ratings. The rating standards applied may vary from country to country and between Travel Providers.
The star ratings range from 1 star, where you can expect simple accommodation with limited facilities, to 5 star accommodation which is likely to have a full range of facilities of the highest standards. If we are provided an official rating we will endeavour to include that within the accommodation description.
Self catering inventory deposits
In some self-catering properties you will be required to leave an inventory deposit when you arrive, which will be returned to you at the end of your stay, less the cost of any losses or damage incurred.
Overseas accommodation is usually subject to a tourist tax which will be payable locally. These will vary by property but the following is a guide:
Late check outs may be possible but must be agreed directly with the accommodation provider. An additional charge will normally apply.
The price advised to you at the time of booking is the final price, once the booking is confirmed, and will not be affected by price increases imposed by our Travel Providers or caused by currency fluctuations
Some accommodation providers charge different rates for different nationalities staying at their hotel, particularly if you are a citizen of the country in which you wish to stay. In most circumstances, this does not apply to residents of EU countries staying in other EU countries. Problems seem to mainly occur, where non-EU passport holders are booked to stay in the country where the passport was issued. Problems typically occur where passport holders travel to the country where their passport was issued. If you think this may affect your booking, please ask our Customer Service team to confirm your booking will be accepted by the hotel, as resolution once you are abroad will be very difficult.
When you book accommodation through Holiday Republics, you accept responsibility for any damage to property or accommodation caused by you or a member of your party. The accommodation provider reserves the right to terminate (before or after departure) your holiday or that of any member of your party due to your or their misconduct, within their reasonable opinion. In these circumstances full cancellation charges will apply and no refund will be given. Furthermore, the accommodation owner shall be under no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses you may incur as a result of your accommodation being terminated. You agree to indemnify us against any claims (including legal costs) made against us or on behalf of the owner of any such property or accommodation. Finally you are also liable to make a reimbursement to the accommodation provider for any damage caused, before the end of your stay.

We do not make any enquiries with the providers of the Excursions about the quality or safety of the Excursion, and for this reason it is up to you to make your own enquiries about the quality and / or safety of the Excursions. We do not accept, or have any legal liability of any kind to you for anything which might go wrong with any Excursion which you have booked through us.
In the event of any incident or other event prompting a claim relating to an excursion that claim should be directed directly to the provider of the Excursion and not Holiday Republics whose contractual liabilities are in all cases limited to those of a booking agent responsible only for accurately relaying the booking requests as submitted by you.

These can include war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, governmental action or accommodation ceasing to be available.
All bookings made, even if arranged at the same time, are separate and independent bookings. Where your Travel Provider initiates a change or cancellation to a booking, your ability to cancel or change any other bookings is not affected. For example, if your accommodation booking is changed or cancelled by your Travel Provider, the Booking Conditions of your flight booking (including cancellation charges) will still apply, and vice versa.
It may be necessary to reconfirm your flight with the airline. Please check this in the correspondence received from your Travel Provider, including the Travel Provider’s Booking Conditions. You should take a note of any reference number or contact names when reconfirming. If you fail to reconfirm you may be refused permission to board the aircraft and you are unlikely to receive any refund

lease note that some amendments involve rebooking at current prices in which case any costs due to fluctuating prices and availability will be chargeable in addition to the standard charges outlined.
