We cannot guarantee to meet your requests but can forward your information and advise you accordingly. Woking Travel Centre can only forward your request. If the airlines fail to meet your needs Woking Travel Centre cannot hold any responsibility for this.
We expect all customers to have consideration for other people.

This includes threat of war, civil conflict, Industrial dispute, air traffic dispute, natural disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, epidemics and pandemics, closure of airports etc.
All airlines offer electronic confirmation of your reservation, or 'e-ticketing', on most routes. We cannot be held responsible if your e-ticket does not arrive due to an incorrect email address or your junk email settings. You can ensure your e-tickets get to you by adding wokingtravelcentre.co.uk to your 'safe list'. You must notify us immediately if you change your email address or contact telephone number after making a booking with Woking Travel Centre. It is your responsibility to advise us if you have not received your e-ticket confirmation.
When making a booking please ensure that the name on your passport matches the name as you have given when booking your flight/itinerary. Woking Travel Centre is not responsible for any incorrect spellings of names provided resulting in any difficulties in your journey. Names cannot be changed once a ticket has been issued.
In your itinerary from Woking Travel Centre, flight times are given for guidance only. All departure/arrival times on your flight ticket are provided by the airlines concerned and are estimates only. They may change due to air traffic control restrictions, weather conditions, operational/maintenance requirements and the requirement for passengers to check in on time. We are not liable if there is any change to a departure/arrival time previously given to you or shown on your ticket or for any other alteration to your flight by the relevant airline. Also, please note that where a sector of a flight itinerary is not utilized without contacting the carrier directly any remaining sectors may be subject to cancellation without further notification.
Where this situation arises we are unable to accept responsibility for any costs incurred. For all air travel it is your responsibility to check the departure and arrival times of your flights at the time of travel. We are unable to make any special arrangements for you if you are delayed as these matters are at the sole discretion of the airline concerned. Please note that the times shown on your ticket or itinerary are the departure times of the flight. Check-in times, as advised by the carrier or in the airlines' timetable are the latest times at which passengers can be accepted for travel, allowing the necessary time to complete all formalities. Flights cannot be held up for passengers arriving late and no responsibility can be accepted by us or the airline in such cases.
- Changes and Cancellations
You must call us on 01483 760000 to change or cancel your trip. All changes are subject to availability, limitations and restrictions of the relevant travel supplier. The refundable portion of your purchase price (if any) will be refunded to you but please note there is an administrative fee applicable for changes or cancellations. If a change in the booking means that the cost of your booking has increased, if, for example discounted fare not available, you will need to pay such extra costs. There will be an admin fee on all amendments to bookings that are changeable above the airline fee. There is also an admin fee on all refundable tickets that are put into refund within the specified time frame. Please note all refund requests are forwarded to the concerned airline and it is up to the discretion of the airline/consolidator if it is accepted. Refunds can take up to 12 weeks from the point of submission. Where the outbound journey is not used and the airline is not notified, the return journey is automatically cancelled and no right to refund shall exist.
We have no control over the airlines' allocation of seats and so, if you have particular seat requests, you should check-in at the airport as early as possible. With some airlines it is possible for us to allocate your seats please check at the time of booking. Some airlines will allow for you to check in online and seat allocation can be done at that point.
Please note that a flight described on your flight ticket as "direct" will not necessarily be non-stop. A flight that is described as direct is one where there is no need to change aircraft during the journey. The airline could change this due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather at any time.
Some airlines refuse to carry women who will be 28 weeks or more pregnant on the date of travel. Please check with the airline concerned as their rules may vary and also consult your doctor. Infants must either sit on an adult's lap or occupy an infant seat. Please contact the airline you are travelling with for details of appropriate seats.
- Government imposed Taxes, Fees and Charges
The price of your flight will include taxes, fees and charges which are imposed on air transportation by government authorities. They may represent a significant portion of the cost of air travel and are either included in the fare or shown separately on your ticket. You may also be required to pay taxes or fees or other charges not already collected, for example, it is not always possible to include all departure taxes on your ticket(s). In some cases departure taxes must be paid by you locally to the Government of the country you are departing from and are therefore non-refundable by us.
You will usually be permitted a free checked baggage allowance and a free cabin baggage allowance, the limits of which may differ by airline, class and/or route. This information will be provided to you at the time of booking. It is recommended that cabin baggage is kept to a minimum. Extra charges may apply for checked baggage in excess of the permitted allowance. Some airlines will also have size/weight restriction per price, please check at time of booking.
If any part of your booking process or journey is not to your satisfaction or you incur any problems to your trip you must contact us or the airline immediately or give us full details of events in writing at least within 28 days of your return.
We act only as booking agents for the 3rd party supplier therefore have no liability for any loss, personal injury or death.
To ensure quality and a high level of customer service telephone calls may be recorded randomly.
