16. Liabilities for referral service
Because of the service we provide in this instance and how we provide it, it is important for you to understand the limitations of our liability, so we have detailed these below and by reading these and using the site you are agreeing to these limitations in full and you also are agreeing to accept the application of English law to govern matters between greentraveller.co.uk and yourself.
This website is made up of descriptions of arrangements provided by tour operators and accommodation providers ("merchants"), and reviews and other postings from other third parties. Such content is the responsibility of the tour operator or accommodation provider or third party creator of the content. We have no responsibility for such content as we are merely providing access to such content as a service to you. We do not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy or reliability of any information about any arrangements featured on this website or any opinions posted by third parties. While we will endeavour to remove any offensive or harmful content from the website as soon as reasonably practicable, we shall not be liable on account of the accuracy, defamatory nature, completeness, or otherwise of such content.
We act only as an advertising intermediary in respect of all services or arrangements featured on this website (“arrangements”). We accept no liability in relation to any contract you enter into or for any arrangements you purchase or for the acts or omissions of any merchant(s) or other person(s) or party(ies) connected with any arrangements. For all arrangements, your contract will be with the merchant of the arrangements.
The terms and conditions of the merchant(s) of your confirmed arrangements will apply to your booking. These terms and conditions may limit and/or exclude the merchant's liability to you.
Nothing on this website constitutes an offer on our part. The matters detailed constitute an invitation to you to make an offer to the applicable merchant on the merchant’s stated terms to purchase arrangements we feature. The applicable merchant may accept or decline any such offer. All arrangements featured or referred to are at all times prior to specific confirmation subject to availability and no warranties, promises or representations are given as to availability.
If you need to cancel or amend a confirmed booking, cancellation/amendment charges will generally be payable. The amount of such charges varies according to the time your notice of cancellation is received by the merchant concerned before departure. Please check the merchant’s terms and conditions.
i) Your holiday
For holidays where we have simply acted as a referrer or ‘lead generator’, we do not act as an agent for operators and accommodation owners in the sense that we do not take your money on their behalf or act as go between in any issues relating to your holiday. Your contract will be with them and them only and they are fully liable for every aspect of their holiday product that you buy, according to their own terms and conditions. So we urge you to check these in full before you book.
ii) Your holiday protection - Licences And Insurances
All holidays featured in the 'Holidays' section on greentraveller.co.uk are provided by operators who have advised greentraveller.co.uk that they either formally bonded, or operate a system of separate client accounts with external signatories, to provide you with financial security in the unlikely event that they should cease to trade. These tour operators have agreed to:
- Adhere to all relevant national travel industry regulations in their country or counties of operation.
- Hold valid operating licenses, certificates and permits as required by national authorities in their country or countries of operation.
- Hold public liability insurance cover and any other insurance cover, guarantees or indemnities required for operation in their country or countries of operation.
Greentraveller.co.uk does also market holidays from overseas tour companies. As the bonding regulations are different in each country we strongly encourage you to enquire about how your money is protected directly with the company you are booking with, or take out personal travel insurance that covers the failure of the holiday provider. When booking hotels and accommodation it is usual to pay after the completion of your stay.
Greentraveller Limited does not accept any liability for, or warrant the quality and standard of, any of the holidays that you are sold by our holiday providers. And specifically, Greentraveller Limited is not liable for any injury and/or damage to persons or property occurring during or as a result of any holiday taken as a result of enquiries made through this website.
17. Events beyond our reasonable control
We will not be liable to you for any delay or other failure to comply with our obligation (if any) where the delay or failure arises from any event or cause which is beyond our reasonable control.
18. Reliance on information posted
Any material posted on the Website is not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to the Website, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.
The information contained on this website may contain technical inaccuracies and typographical and other errors. The information on these pages may be updated from time to time and may at times be out of date.

If any detail is obviously incorrect, neither we nor any merchant will be bound by it. We accept no responsibility for keeping the information on these pages up to date or liability for failure to do so. You must ensure you check all details of the arrangements with the merchant or transport agency at the time of booking.
Travel Information: Greentraveller aims to give you a reasonable idea of train and ferry times, fares, and how to buy tickets in order that (hopefully) there’s enough information to know what's available, how to plan a journey and where to book tickets. We do our best to keep the site updated, but it's impossible to keep every time and fare up to date all of the time. Fares are particularly troublesome, as we do not have access to fares manuals or reservation systems, only the same booking and internet resources that are available to the general public, such as the Thomas Cook European Rail Timetable, Thomas Cook Rail Map of Europe, seat61.com and the various booking websites such as eurostar.co.uk, raileurope.co.uk and bahn.com. We are particularly grateful to Amanda Monroe at Raileurope who has helped provide many of the prices we provide for international trail travel. Timetables and fares do change throughout the year so please treat all train and ferry times and fares as a guide, and use the links provided to double-check them using the official railway and ferry websites wherever possible. Always confirm details when you book. Greentraveller can't take responsibility for errors or inaccuracies in the information it provides, but please e-mail us if you find any and we will put them right as soon as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org
