PASSPORT AND VISA AND HEALTH INFO/REQUIREMENTS

It is the responsibility of the lead passenger travelling to make sure that they hold the correct passport and visa requirements. Linevana Ltd., trading as Cassidy Travel will not be held responsible for any financial costs that may be incurred as a direct result of failure to do so.

The information in this section is valid for Irish Citizens only. Non Irish Citizens should consult the Embassy of their destination country and the  Office Immigration Department regarding any special documentation for the countries they are visiting or for return to the Ireland. It is your responsibility to check with the applicable Embassy or Consulate to see whether the destination(s) that you are visiting requires a visa, especially if you do not hold an Irish passport, If you fail to do so, you will be solely responsible for any cost, loss or damage which you or we incur as a result of your failure.

It is also important to remember to include all transit points of your journey, which may also require you to obtain a visa. Please note that most countries require that your passport is valid for six months beyond the period of your stay. Some countries apply different rules and you should contact the Embassy or Consulate of your destination for relevant current information. Please note all children require their own Passport for travel. It is vital that you ensure that your passport is legible and intact, any sign of damage could result in a refusal of carriage or entry into your country of destination. If you hold a Irish passport and require information in respect of the validity of your passport, procedure and time required to apply for a passport or renew an existing passport, the regulations in respect of minors, or if your passport has been lost or stolen, you can contact the Passport Office:

Setanta Centre,

It is your responsibility to obtain the appropriate visa for your destination(s) and any applicable transit point. If you require information in respect of current visa requirements, procedure and the time required to apply for the applicable visa, you should contact the department of Foreign Affairs or check with the applicable Embassy or Consulate to see whether the destination(s) that you are visiting requires a visa.

The name on the passport must match the name on the ticket, otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid.

Please note that a change in name may incur charges or the purchase of a new ticket. Where incurred these fee will be payable by you.

It is important that all travellers to the United States take note of the following:

A visa will be necessary for entry to the United States of America (USA) unless passengers are eligible under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). The VWP allows holders of full Irish Citizens Passports who have the right of abode in the Ireland to complete a Visa Waiver Form and submit this on arrival. You must ensure that you comply with all USA Government requirements as per the Visa Waiver Form before confirming your booking. All Irish passport holders, including children, travelling to the USA under the VWP will need their own machine-readable passports (MRP). This means that anyone without a MRP, including children who are currently on a parent's passport, will need a visa to travel to the USA.

If you have a serious communicable disease of public health significance including HIV you are not eligible to travel on the Visa Waiver Program, and must possess a valid visa for entry into the United States.

If you have ever been arrested or convicted for any reason in any country, even if the arrest did not lead to a conviction including driving offences, you may require a visa and should consult the US Embassy directly (details are below).

For further details on entry requirements for the USA and the VWP (as there are some restrictions and requirements change from time to time), check the US Embassy website: http://dublin.usembassy.gov/

You should seek advice on any vaccinations and precautions that may be compulsory or recommended from a health professional – a GP, practice nurse, pharmacist or travel health clinic – ideally at least 12 weeks before you travel.

Note: The relationship between the Firm and the Member is that of lawyer and client and subject to the usual rights of privilege and confidentiality. A Member shall not without the prior consent in writing of the adviser disclose to any person the contents of any communication (whether written or oral) from the adviser to the Member. For these purposes absolute privilege shall be deemed to attach to all such communications and the said privilege shall be that of the adviser and the Member jointly and neither party shall be entitled to disclose any such information without the prior consent in writing of the other

AIR/FLIGHT BOOKINGS

All flight, hotel and car rental prices are subject to availability and offers may be withdrawn or amended at any time without prior notification. Cassidy travel accepts no liability should any such offer be withdrawn or amended.  

In some instances online check-in may not be available when flights are booked with Aer Lingus. You will be required to check in at the desk at your departure airport on day of travel

AIRLINE CODESHARES

Many airlines operate on acodeshare basis with their commercial partners. This means that a flight can be operated on one carrier's behalf by a partner airline and quite possibly bear more than one flight number. This particularly happens within airline consortia e.g. One World, Sky Team, Star Alliance etc whereby carriers are enabled to offer flights on their partner's aircraft to destinations beyond their existing routes and toutilise their additional services for check in etc.  

E-TICKETS

Most airlines offer only electronic confirmation of your reservation, or 'e-ticketing', on certain 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 Cassidy Travel to your 'safe list'. You must notify us immediately if you change your email address or contact telephone number after making a booking with Cassidy Travel. In addition, please check that the name on your passport matches the name on your ticket and/or booking confirmation. It is your responsibility to advise us if you have not received your eticket confirmation.  

FLYING TIMES

In your itinerary from www.cassidytravel.ie 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 utilised 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.

It is for this reason that you are required to reconfirm your flights with the airline in accordance with the airline's applicable reconfirmation deadline. 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.  

SEAT REQUESTS

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. We cannot guarantee that these requests will be met.  

DIRECT FLIGHTS

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.  

PREGNANCY AND CHILDREN

Some airlines refuse to carry women who will be 28 weeks or more pregnant on the date of return travel. Please check with the airline concerned as their rules may vary and also consult your doctor. Infants must be 6 weeks old or more to travel by air and 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. Generally children aged 2 years or more must occupy a seat. A child must be under 2 years of age on the date of their return flight to be entitled to the infant fare level which is usually 10% of the International Air Transport Association's (or IATA's) published fare. Airlines regard those aged 0-23 months for the entire travel period as infants, and those aged 2-11 years for the entire travel period as children. Any other person is required to pay the adult fare.  

GOVERNMENT IMPOSED TAXES, FEES AND CHARGES

The price of your flight may 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.  

THE COMMISION FOR AVIATION REGULATION IRELAND (CAR)  & THE IRISH  ASSOCIATION OF TRAVEL AGENTS (ITAA)

Linevana Ltd., trading as Cassidy Travel holds a licence issued by The Commission for Aviation (CAR) www.aviationreg.ie. It should be noted that this licence includes some but not all products sold on this site. Linevana Ltd., trading as Cassidy Travel holds full ITAA membership. We are also accredited by IATA.
Travel arrangements offered on this site tend to fall into 2 main categories:

(1)  Package Holidays
Where Package Holidays are offered these are supplied by leading Irish Tour Operators for an inclusive price. These arrangements will typically include transportation (usually charter flights on fixed departure dates and for a fixed duration), accommodation, transfers and representative services in resort for an inclusive price. Package holidays are protected under the Tour Operator’s own C.A.R licence. We act as agents for licensed tour operators

(2)  Flight only and or individual travel arrangements
Flight and hotel arrangements generally offer much greater flexibility than Package Holidays giving the traveller the opportunity to choose from a vast array of flights for a range of durations. To these arrangements can be added car hire, transfers and travel insurance as required.Each booking is a separate and distinct booking and your bookings, even though they may be linked to the same dates of travel do not constitute a package holiday. All bookings are purchased individually at their own individual price. The total price for several bookings is the sum of the price charged for each individual booking, which will include Cassidy Travel commission.
harter flights - all charter flights available on this web site are fully protected via the scheme operated by the The Commission for Aviation Regulation ("CAR"). Refunds are provided by the CAR direct to you.

All these arrangements clearly carry the message on the acknowledgement and confirmation pages and on the confirmation email you receive.

In accordance with European regulations we are required to bring to your attention the existence of a 'Community list', which contains details of air carriers that are subject to an operating ban within the European Community. The Community list is available for inspection at http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air-ban/doc/list_en.pdf

We reserve the right to change your airline in the event that the airline is blacklisted under the EU regulations. Any changes to the actual airline after you have received your tickets will be notified to you as soon as possible and in all cases at check-in or at the boarding gate.  

BAGGAGE (SCHEDULED AIRLINES)

In most cases you will 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. It is recommended that cabin baggage is kept to a minimum. Extra charges may apply for checked baggage in excess of the permitted allowance. Please ask the airline for more specific information as these rules vary from time to time. You can refer to www.iata.org/bags for information and links.

Cassidy Travel will not accept responsibility for any incurred excess baggage charges imposed by an airline.

Under European law you have rights in some circumstances to refunds and/or compensation from your airline in cases of denied boarding, cancellation or delay to flights. Full details of these rights will be publicised at European airports and will also be available from airlines. However reimbursement in such cases is the responsibility of the airline. If your airline does not comply with these rules you should complain to  http://ec.europa.eu/ireland/contact_us/faq/air_travel/index_en.htm

A valid driving licence is required for all drivers. The licence must be valid at the time of rental and remain valid throughout the rental period. We will not be liable for any compensation or otherwise if you fail to show a valid drivers licence to the supplier and are refused rental.  

Irish Licence Holders

Excess Waiver

Although our rates are fully inclusive there is always an excess to pay. This means in the event of accident/damage or theft, the driver will be expected to pay the first part of the claim. This can vary depending on the car you hire and the destination you are travelling to.
