Bookings on this website can only be made by travel agents in a B2B capacity with a signed commercial agency agreement with BWE (“Agency Agreement”), and any bookings you make will be governed by both the Agency Agreement and these Terms of Business. By making a booking, you accept and agree to comply with these Terms of Business. Failure to comply with any part of these Terms of Business and/or your Agency Agreement may result in your access and permission to use this website being revoked (in addition to any other rights we may have).
In making a booking on behalf of the Customer, and receiving payment from the Customer, you, the travel agent do so in the capacity of a Sub-agent for BWE (“Sub-Agent”, “you”). BWE accepts no responsibility for the provision of the Product by the Service Provider. The Service Provider has a contract with the Customer for the provision of the Product and copies of the terms and conditions of the Service Provider are available on request. The Customer makes an offer to buy Products from the Service Provider which BWE, as agent, is able to accept on behalf of each Service Provider or to reject it.
Where the Sub-Agent sells the Products as part of a “Package” or “Linked Travel Arrangement” as defined in the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 (“PTRs”), the Sub-Agent shall be the “Organiser” (as defined in the PTRs) of the Package (or facilitator of the Linked Travel Arrangement) and shall comply with its legal obligations thereunder, including but not limited financially protecting Customer payments received by the Sub-Agent.
BWE is not a package organiser in any circumstances and the Products are not sold by BWE in any way that creates a Package or Linked Travel Arrangement, with BWE as the organiser/facilitator. Certain hotels/accommodation providers offer complimentary airport transfers as part of the accommodation booking. These airport transfers are provided by hotels/accommodation providers as part of the accommodation and the airport transfer does not constitute a separate travel or tourist service in its own right.
2. PAYMENTThe Customer must pay a deposit at the time of booking and the full balance is required no later than 14 days before the Product start date. Payment in full must be made if the booking is made within 14 days of the Product start date. A voucher will be sent to the Sub-Agent to send to the Customer without delay. The voucher will identify the Service Provider and entitles the Customer to use the Product. If full payment is not received by BWE by the balance due date at the latest, BWE may, on behalf of the Service Provider, assume that the booking is cancelled. All payments received by BWE as at the date of cancellation will be retained by way of a cancellation fee and BWE will pass on any additional charges from the Service Provider. If BWE does not receive full payment from the Sub-Agent the Product will not be provided to the Customer without further payment.
