Security

We will take all reasonable measures to insure information you transmit to us using the Website will remain confidential and protected from unauthorised access.

Security Information

To insure secure online payment and all other transactions of personal data, the Website uses a technology called SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL encrypts all communications between your computer and our server so that the information can only be read and understood by us. A closed lock in the bottom corner of your browser window shows a secure connection. For further information, please consult your browser’s security specifications. If your browser is equipped with SSL your transaction will automatically be secured. The common standard in the Internet to signal a secure site is a closed lock at the bottom of the browser. As long as the lock is displayed closed your information is secure and encrypted to avoid abuse. If you click the secure transaction link and still cannot see the closed lock, the reason may be that the window is in nested in another frame. To check that you have a secure connection (in Internet Explorer), click the right mouse button and properties, then certificates. Then you will see if the connection is secure or not. Another way (in Netscape Navigator) is to click the right mouse button and 'view frame info' at the bottom of the text you will see security information.

Passports

Please insure you have a passport valid for the duration of your trip. (Some destinations require your passport be valid for a certain length of time; in general, 6 months after completion of travel). You may also be required to obtain a visa for some destinations and it is your responsibility to do so.

For information on passport or visa requirements, you should contact the embassy, high commission or consulate of the country to which you will be travelling.

A failure to travel with the correct documentation could result in the passenger being refused travel, entry to the country of their destination or stop-over, deportation or incarceration and in such circumstance(s) you will be solely responsible for any cost, loss or damage which you or we (or our agents or servants) incur.

Airport Taxes

Some airports will levy an airport departure tax, which is payable by passengers at the airport locally. These charges are not included in our quoted fares. We inform you about these taxes if where applicable.

Health/Insurance Requirements

Immunization may be recommended or required for your destination or stopover points - please check this with your doctor. We also recommend purchase of adequate travel insurance for all overseas travel.

You should note that any information and advice contained in the Heath & Travel section is intended as a general guide only and is not specific to you or your particular circumstances. All content within Health & Travel section is provided for general information only, and should not be treated as a substitute for the medical advice of your own doctor or any other health care professional. We are not liable for any diagnosis made by you based on the content in our Health & Travel section and exclude our liability to the fullest extent permitted by law. You should always contact your own doctor if you are concerned about your health, flying and/or countries of destination/stop-over.

The carriage of passengers and their baggage by air will be subject to the Conditions of Carriage of the carrier concerned. With respect to our flights, please read our General Conditions of Carriage for Passengers & Baggage.
