Spotlight on...
Las Vegas,
California
& the West
W
hen you think of glitz and glamour,
bright lights and entertainment, Las
Vegas is usually there in the mind’s
eye. But step away from the Strip
and you’ll fi nd sweeping plains, fascinating
landscapes and National Parks. Extend your
Las Vegas holiday with a trip to California,
Arizona, Utah or even the idyllic isles of Hawaii
to make a truly memorable American adventure.
Did you know?
OA 1910 law made it illegal to gamble
in Las Vegas. The Nevada Legislature later
approved a legalised gambling bill in 1931
OThe iconic ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ sign
was created in 1959 by Betty Willis
OWhere can you seek staggeringly steep
rollercoaster rides at the top of a hotel?
Where else but Las Vegas! Head to the
108th fl oor of the Stratosphere Casino,
Hotel & Tower, 1,149ft above the ground to
nd out more
Bright lights, big city
World-renowned for its casinos and
gambling, Las Vegas is the perfect
place if you fancy a fl utter. With more
than 76 casinos set deep inside the
labyrinth of magnifi cent hotels which
stretch up and down the famous Strip,
visitors are spoilt for choice. The themed
hotels – which are more like vast
resorts than simple hotels – are worth
a wander to take in the spectacular
décor and fabulous restaurants, shops
and bars. The Venetian Resort has its
very own indoor waterway complete
with gondolas and a replica of Venice’s
famous Rialto Bridge. If you need a
break from the hustle and bustle of the
Strip then head pool side to cool down
and sip a cocktail, or try one of the
many golf courses on offer.
Natural wonders all around
Leaving the bright lights of Vegas behind you’ll fi nd
some of America’s most breathtaking landscapes
and scenery. On the Nevada/Arizona border
lies Hoover Dam – the highest concrete dam in the
Western Hemisphere, standing more than 725 feet
above the Colorado River. Visitors will actually cross
the state border whilst walking across the bridge
above the dam where a plaque marks the exact spot.
Utah is one of America’s best kept secrets. Lovers
of the outdoors will feel right at home here with an
abundance of National Parks and stunning vistas to
enjoy. Head to Zion National Park to enjoy some of
the greatest walking hikes around, or perhaps choose
Bryce Canyon National Park, Arches National Park or
the impressive Canyonlands National Park.

When to travel
As you would expect from a desert location,
the weather in Las Vegas is generally hot
and dry year round with very little rainfall.
The hottest months are June, July and August
with temperatures in the top 30 degrees to
low 40 degrees and the humidity is quite
high. The most pleasant time of year to visit
is generally in spring when temperatures and
humidity are more comfortable. For a full
climate guide, please see page 81.
Grand expectations
The Grand Canyon in Arizona is without
doubt, one of the most magnificent,
breathtaking and awe-inspiring natural
wonders of the world. This UNESCO
World Heritage Site is more than 277
miles long and a mile deep from rim to
river at its highest point. As visitors turn the
corner for the first time at the South Rim
and the vast, golden red expanse of the
canyon comes into view, they stop in their
tracks in awe and wonder. Be sure to set
aside some time to watch the sun rise, or
set, over this majestic spectacle for a once
in a lifetime experience.
California dreamin’
From the sun-kissed beaches of the
Pacific Coast to the towering forests
of the National Parks, what’s not to
love about California? The Golden
State isn’t short of things to do –
visit the vineyards of Napa Valley,
hike the mountains of Yosemite
National Park, cross the Golden
Gate Bridge and explore the
infamous Alcatraz in San Francisco,
or head to Los Angeles for beautiful
beaches and action-packed theme
parks. The endless excitement of
California offers a fantastic addition
to Las Vegas, by road or air.
Living island life
Extend your Las Vegas holiday with a
trip to the islands of Hawaii – Maui,
Kauai, Big Island or Oahu – there’s
no place on earth quite like it. Home
to some of the world’s most active
volcanoes and the world’s tallest sea
mountain, Hawaii is the birthplace of
modern surfing, the hula and Hawaii
Regional Cuisine. But perhaps
Hawaii’s most unique feature is it’s
aloha spirit – the warmth of Hawaii’s
people that wonderfully complements
the island’s perfect temperatures. If
you’re looking for a beach break
to wind down after the fast pace of
Vegas, look no further.

Just some of the many words that
could be used to describe Las
Vegas. Be prepared for bright
lights, spectacular sights and
late nights in sin city – where just
about anything is possible.
Las
Vegas
Take a spin
Las Vegas is the gaming capital of the
world – quite simply nowhere in the world
does it better, or with more pizzazz.
Whether you’re a roulette novice, a slot
machine fan or a cool poker player,
there’s a game here to take your fancy
– but hopefully not your money. The
majority of the most spectacular gaming
venues are found on the legendary four-
mile Las Vegas Boulevard, otherwise
known as the Strip.
Say ‘I do’ Page 23
The wedding capital of the world, there’s
no better – or easier – place to say your
vows than Las Vegas. There’s no residency
requirement and the basic elements are
a valid ten year passport and a willing
spouse!
Dinner is served
Dining out in Las Vegas is an almost
overwhelming pleasure. Whatever and
however you feel like eating, whether
snacking on a late-night hot dog, filling
up at the overflowing all-you-can-eat
casino buffets or savouring a four-course
French haute-cuisine meal there’s a place
to enjoy it – 24-hours a day.
Las Vegas Experiences

Las Vegas
With more than 100
different shows a day to

Day and night
At every turn, there’s something magical, surreal or just downright jawdropping, whether it’s
the pyramids of Egypt, the Eiffel Tower, erupting volcanoes or nostalgic Americana (only
the latter is real!). Walk the famous Strip revelling in the sights and enjoying the year-round
sunshine. Or take a tour out into the surrounding landscapes to see the Grand Canyon, one
of the natural wonders of the world, returning to relax by the hotel pool.
At night, the city is illuminated by the largest light show on earth as millions of neon bulbs
announce the show that is Vegas’ nightlife. The air crackles with a unique excitement and
exhilaration. This is the time to enjoy some of the best nightly entertainment in the world, with
incredible shows, superb food and drink, and high-rolling casinos.

The Mirage Hotel and Casino
Caption
Set amid lush foliage, towering waterfalls
and sparkling lagoons, The Mirage is a
South Seas oasis, offering the serenity of the
tropics and the excitement of Las Vegas. A
fiery volcano welcomes you to this five-star
resort. Elegant surroundings and attention
to detail create a memorable experience.
Fine dining, legendary entertainment and
the unique jungle sanctuary for rare and
exotic animals complement the amenities of
a luxurious spa and salon, dramatic lagoon
pool and eclectic array of designer shops.
The hotel’s iconic volcano has been
delighting guests and passers-by with its
thunderous light and smoke eruptions 100ft
into the air choreographed to music since
the hotel opened in 1989 and is now even
more spectacular.
Waterfalls cascade from the volcano’s
cone, behind which the hotel’s white and
gold exterior rises in its distinctive Y shape.
Inside the front entrance, a tropical South
Pacific forest of orchids, palms and banana
plants fills a 100ft glass dome.
The indulgent Mirage Spa and lagoon-style
pool offer tranquil relaxation.

Northern California’s landscape of rugged
coastlines, towering forests and sparkling lakes
is simply spectacular. This is a place where
small towns preserve the past and embrace
the future, whilst the cities are a spectacle
of entertainment. With its sparkling setting
and its host of iconic attractions, including
the soaring Golden Gate Bridge and the
forbidding Alcatraz, you’ll fall in love with
the beautiful ‘City by the Bay’ San Francisco.
Approximately an hour from San Francisco,
Napa Valley is where America’s greatest
and most famous wines are produced. With
three hundred-plus wineries lying along
Highway 29 and the scenic Silverado Trail,
it is considered the epicentre of American
wine, food and fine living. Yosemite National
Park was named as a World Heritage Site
in the 1980s – you’ll be amazed by the
breathtaking vistas from Tunnel View.

of electricity a year as one of the country’s
largest hydroelectric power facilities.

TRAVEL DOCUMENTATION
When you receive your travel documentation, please check it carefully
and notify us or your travel agent immediately if you think any of the
details are inaccurate. The names on your itinerary must match those
on your passports otherwise you will be unable to travel and will incur
amendment or cancellation charges. It is essential that you check your
documentation and ensure that your first names and surnames are spelt
exactly as they appear in your passports. We are not liable to you
for any problems or complaints you may have as a result of holiday
details having been noted incorrectly if you do not advise us of these
prior to travel.
SECTION 1 – HOLIDAY PRICES
Travel & Stay Options & Prices
Holiday prices are influenced by a variety of factors particularly
depending on the type of travel option you book. It is not possible to
show the supplements and fares for all our different travel arrangements
due the range of options available, and the prices contained within
this brochure are for guidance only. Prices, offers and board basis may
vary and will be confirmed to you on enquiry. We can usually offer you
a choice of travel options and dates/times of travel. You will also find
our transport providers may offer a choice of seat classes or upgrade
options – your travel agent will be able to confirm the current prices.
Prices apply to UK residents only; non-UK residents may incur additional
charges.
Scheduled Flights: The prices we show for scheduled flights are based
upon the lowest fare available. The airlines will limit the number of
seats available at these prices by flight and date of travel. If the price
shown in the brochure is not available when you book, we will offer
you the next best seat price. The price includes current taxes (such as air
passenger duty), aircraft insurance, security, fuel and other associated
costs known at the time of booking. Our prices are affected by changes
in these costs (see section ‘Extra Charges - before booking’).
Airline Services: A number of airlines that we offer no longer include
meals or luggage allowance within the basic price offered. Please ask
us for specific details at the time of booking.
Airline Failure Protection: A charge made by us on all our holidays
that include a flight so that in the event the Airline on which you are due
to travel ceases to trade, we are able to arrange alternative flights (if
available) or issue you with a refund, as appropriate.
Extra Charges - Before Booking
The prices shown are based on current airfares including fuel
surcharges. Airlines reserve the right to change prices prior to ticketing
and we must reserve the right to increase prices due to changes in
fuel costs or taxes. We will advise you of the current price at the time
of booking and we will absorb any increase of less than 2% of your
holiday price. If costs rise of more than 10% you may choose to cancel
and receive a full refund. For further information please refer to the
booking conditions.
Departure Airport Taxes: Where applicable, all UK and overseas
taxes have been included in your holiday price. The only overseas taxes
we have not included are those that must be paid in the respective
countries and cannot be collected prior to your UK departure. This will
include tourism enhancement fees or some passenger service taxes.
Accommodation Supplements & Restrictions
Hotel prices are shown per person (based on two people sharing) in a
standard twin or double room for the number of nights as stated in the
accommodation description. The lowest available rates are displayed
but please allow for supplements depending on the dates you stay.
Prices will vary depending on, for example, peak periods, weekend/
midweek stays, local holidays, special events and the room type you
select. Hoteliers may also require a minimum length of stay at certain
times of the year. Please ask your travel agent for prices and any
minimum stay restrictions applying on the day you book. We reserve the
right to change prices. Prices can go up or down.
Local Charges
At some accommodation certain amenities may carry a local
charge. Unless we have stated that a service or facility is ‘free’ in our
accommodation descriptions, you may be asked to pay a charge. Here
are a few examples of what you might expect to pay for locally, but
always check first as there may be others.
OA daily resort fee or an additional charge for sun loungers maybe
applicable.
ODaily car parking charge at some hotels/apartments.
OLocal taxes payable on checkout.
OEntertainment and activities away from your accommodation.
OHighchairs, cots, hotel run children’s clubs and meals for infants.

Frequent Flyer Schemes: Not all airline tickets sold by Gold Medal
are eligible for mileage/points accrual. We strongly advise that you
check with the airline(s) concerned regarding the use of frequent flyer
membership(s) with your booking.
SECTION 2 – BEFORE YOU TRAVEL
Scheduled Flights
Flights may be booked in conjunction with hotel and ground
arrangements and flight times at the time of booking will be provisional.
Final times will be advised with your travel documents shortly before the
departure date.
Special Offers
Unless otherwise stated, special offers will only apply for certain periods
of stay and at certain hotels. These will be stated in our brochure.
Conditions may apply to these offers and you will be advised at the time
of booking. All offers are subject to availability and can be withdrawn
at any time without notice. The offer validity period generally applies to
completed stays within the date banding, but this may vary according
to the individual hotel.
Honeymoons & Other Special Events
Where you advise and pay for a honeymoon offer as noted on your
invoice this should be guaranteed by the hotel. For other special offers
such as anniversaries and birthdays we will pass this information on to
the relevant hotel, however no guarantees can be given.
Complimentary Room Upgrades
Where applicable and unless otherwise stated, offers of room upgrades
shown in the brochure will be determined by availability when you travel
and your room will be allocated on arrival at the accommodation. If
your room is upgraded, please note that this will not necessarily be to
the next highest category featured in our brochure, as we do not sell
all room types at all hotels. Room upgrades are subject to availability
on arrival.
Passports & Visa Checklist
OBritish Citizens holding a 10-year UK passport (5 years for children),
issued in the UK should note that some overseas countries have an
immigration requirement for a passport to remain valid for a minimum
period after the date of entry to that country (typically 6 months).
ONon-British Citizen passport holders or British Citizens holding a UK
Passport issued abroad or holders of British Subject Passports should
contact the appropriate consulate or embassy for advice.
OPassport and visa regulations can change - check with your Travel
Advisor or the relevant embassy well in advance of travel.
OApply early: If you need to apply for a passport or renew an expired
passport, you should do so well in advance of travel.
OIf you are 16 or over and have never had a passport in your own
name, you should apply for one in good time before booking your
holiday. The UK passport service has to confirm your identity before
issuing your first passport and will ask you to attend an interview in order
to protect your identity.
OIf a visa is required, allow plenty of time to apply. Your passport may
need a minimum number of blank pages - check with the FCO.
OYou may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid if
the names on your passport and travel documents do not match. If
any member of your party changes their name, we must be notified
immediately so that we can change booking documentation.
OAll passengers must ensure they have valid, acceptable passports,
any required visa, any other documentation for both the final destination
and any stop-off points en-route.
OEnsure advanced passenger information is submitted in advance of
travel for all destinations.
OFailure to hold correct documentation or submitting incorrect details
with advanced passenger information or visa applications may result in
refusal of carriage or entry to a country. If you do not have the correct
documentation you may be refused travel by the airline.
OYou may be liable to pay fines, surcharges, other financial penalty,
costs (including the cost of an immediate return flight) and any other
sums of any description, which are incurred or imposed by the airline
or incurred by us.
How to contact the Passport Office: General passport enquiries
should be directed to the Passport Office. Visit: www.direct.gov.uk/

Advanced Passenger Information
Airlines are required to collect biographical information contained in
the section of your passport that can be read by machine (such as
name, passport number). We refer to this as your advance passenger
information, which Airlines will pass onto the e-Borders programme both
prior to your departure from a UK Airport to an overseas destinations,
and on any journey to the UK. Airlines are legally required to collect
your advance passenger information – for details visit the UK Border
Agency website: www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk or your airlines website.
For some destinations this will be obtained at the airport but for others
we will ask you to provide the information to us or your airline at time
of booking or at least 72 hours before you travel. Please also carefully
note any instructions about Advanced Passenger Information on your
confirmation invoice or tickets.

SECTION 3 - GROUND ARRANGEMENTS
Accommodation
Every effort has been made to describe each hotel and standard
room accommodation we feature as fairly and accurately as possible.
Nevertheless, hoteliers may change facilities/services after publication
of this brochure. We expect hoteliers to inform us of any major
changes without delay and, where possible, we will inform you prior to
departure. Meals as specified are included only where stated; all other
arrangements are on a room only basis. Accommodation is priced per
person based on twin share occupancy unless otherwise stated. Please
ask our reservations staff at the time of booking for exact details. When
we mention room types in our brochure, in most cases you can expect
to receive a room similar to that described below. Please note however
that whilst room categories in different hotels may have the same or
similar names, the criteria for their classification is likely to differ, as these
are the names the hotels use and they do not have standard definitions.
Every effort has been made to ensure that the hotels and other
accommodation featured in this brochure are correctly represented and
will fulfil your expectations for quality and service. It is important to note
that, where used; the star classification system is our own and does
not conform to any internationally recognised system. The rating, in our
opinion, reflects a true representation of the merits of each property.
Inevitably, standards will differ slightly between the many destinations
which we feature.
Shared Accommodation
On most escorted and independent tours featured, a single room costs
more. However, on selected tours we can sometimes offer shared
accommodation in a twin room with another single person, giving you
the benefit of not having to pay a single supplement. This is subject
to someone suitable being willing to share. Otherwise, a normal
supplement will be charged on your confirmation invoice. If you are
willing to share, please indicate this when booking.
Single Supplements
If a single person occupies a double room they will usually be asked
to pay extra (a single supplement). Hotels price their rooms as doubles
and they do not reduce the rates if they are occupied by a single person.
The costs to the hotel of providing the room – heating, lighting, cleaning
etc. are the same regardless of how many people occupy that room.
The prices we charge reflect the costs of under occupancy of the rooms
contracted to us by the hotel, we do not mark up these supplements.
Room Types Information
In all types of accommodation described below, if there are less than
the maximum number of persons in your own party, the room type may
contain less than the maximum number of beds indicated.
Hotel Rooms
A ‘double’ is a room with a double bed. A ‘twin’ is a room with two single
beds. A ‘single’ or ‘twin for sole use’ is a room with one or two single
beds. A double bed may be two single beds with double bedding. Single
rooms are often smaller, may not have a balcony and may not be of the
same general standard as normal twin rooms. Some hotels have rooms,
which sleep up to 4 persons. Room layout may consist of up to 4 separate
beds or a combination of double, twin, camp beds, sofa beds or rollaway
beds. In some hotels 3rd and 4th beds may be only suitable for a child,
but in other hotels there may be a reduction available if 4 adults share the
room. Rooms for up to 4 persons may not be any larger than standard
twin or double rooms so space is likely to limited and the room may be
cramped. Where rooms do accept extra beds, some hotels may require
an additional local charge to be paid which can vary by destination,
e.g. rollaway bed in USA – please ask for details when you book.
Though we will do our best to help, please note that we cannot guarantee
the room configuration or type of beds that you will be provided with.
Please note, for accommodation in some parts of the USA, especially Las
Vegas, there must be at least one person aged 21 years old or above
travelling on the booking and present when checking in. Please check
requirements before booking.
Suites/Junior Suites/Villas
A Suite and Junior Suite usually contain a lounge/living area. A Suite
is likely to contain a separate sleeping area whereas a Junior Suite the
sleeping area may not be completely separate. Room layouts can vary
by destination. Our descriptions of Suites/Junior Suites and Villas usually
state the number of persons who can occupy the room type (e.g. 2-4
persons). Children paying less than the full cost do not count towards
occupancy of the Suites/Junior Suites or Villas.
Child Reductions: Child reductions are generally available for children
who are under the age of 12 on the date of travel. To obtain this
reduction in cost, children must share a room with two full paying adults
and use existing bed within the room type booked. Where an additional
bed is required, our reservations staff will be pleased to advise you of
the additional cost. Rooms shared by adults and children are requested
through our system and are therefore subject to availability.
Tour Itinerary
All our tours are, by their very nature, complex and include services from
many different airlines, hotels and ground transportation companies.
Due to the demand for these services, it is not always possible to
guarantee particular airlines, flights, aircraft, ferries, trains and/or the
hotels featured on a particular itinerary or departure date. It is with this in
mind that we reserve the right to change any of the listed services and,
if necessary, even modify the itinerary itself without prior notice. Where
any alteration significantly changes your tour itinerary or tour dates, we
will always make every effort to give as much advance notification as
possible. Changes to tours may also be necessary once the tour has
commenced, changes may include the sequence of visits being altered
according to local conditions.
Meal Service
Meals as specified are included only where stated; all other
arrangements are on a room only basis. Many properties are not
necessarily used to catering for special diets and therefore if you have
particular or specific requirements, you may find that the choice is
limited. As a matter of courtesy to fellow guests, property owners may
require diners adhere to a dress code whilst dining in their restaurants.
Hotel Check-In
Your room will normally be available for check-in from 2pm onwards.
If you intend to arrive late due to a pre-arranged flight schedule or
transfers, your hotel will need to be advised of your late check-in.
On the day of departure you will be asked to check out before 12
noon. Should you wish to request a late check out as you have a
late afternoon or evening departure, the hotel may decide to apply
additional charges. If you wish to pre-book and guarantee an additional
half-day’s occupancy, please ask our reservations staff for details and
prices. Customers may be required to leave a credit card deposit at
hotel check in. If a credit card is not available then sometimes a cash
deposit may be needed instead.
Air Conditioning
Some properties have individual air-conditioners located in either the
bedroom or the living area, allowing you to adjust the atmosphere to
your own liking. In some descriptions we have indicated that there is
centrally controlled air conditioning. This means it is operated at the
discretion of the management, both in bedrooms and public areas. In
such cases air conditioning may be restricted to particular times of the
day and to the hottest months of the summer. It may be that only cool
air is provided, not necessarily warm air as well. There may be a local
charge for air conditioning in some rooms.
Accommodation Maintenance
Certain accommodation featured in this brochure is operational all year
round. From time to time it will be necessary for certain facilities to be
withdrawn for general maintenance purposes. Water and electricity
supplies may be interrupted whilst this essential maintenance is undertaken.
Other Guests
We do not have exclusive use of all properties featured in this brochure.
It is possible therefore, that there may be guests from other countries and
of mixed age groups at your accommodation. Many hotels we feature
do operate corporate conference facilities and there may be occasions
where business meetings are taking place during your stay.
Hotel-Run Children’s Clubs
Standards and facilities at kids’ clubs featured in this brochure may vary.
We are unable to accept responsibility for or give any guarantee for
the standard of the facilities and qualifications of personnel at hotel run
clubs. Kids’ club(s) may not meet standards of similar facilities in the UK
and guests are strongly advised to remember that local standards and
requirements in respect of such clubs may differ overseas and so you
must ensure that you are completely satisfied with the facilities and staff
providing this service before you enrol your child or children into the club
and into the clubs’ care.
Gala Dinners
Many hotels require the compulsory purchase of gala dinners over the
Christmas and New Year period. Please enquire when booking as to
whether this requirement is applicable to your hotel.
Building Works
Building works and noise are sometimes unavoidable in certain
developing areas, resorts and cities. Unfortunately, such development is
not directly under our control, nor do we necessarily receive advance
notice of when they begin. Should we be aware of any building works
that may be considered to be a seriously detriment to your enjoyment,
we will notify you as soon as possible. If necessary, we will offer you
the opportunity to transfer to an alternative hotel. Some public facilities
at hotels, such as restaurants, bars and swimming pools, may only be
available during mid-week or high season. We will, wherever possible,
inform you if this is the case at the time of booking. In some destinations
work is carried out by local/national authorities of which we have no
control and cannot be held responsible.
All Inclusive
To help you choose your all inclusive holiday we have highlighted what
activities and facilities are included with each accommodation. This is
based on information we have received from the hotel management,
often dictated by the properties current seasons all inclusive package.
Please allow for some facilities or activities to be altered or substituted
when you travel though, as hotels do regularly review and update what
they offer as all inclusive.
Identification: When you arrive at your hotel you are likely to be
provided with some form of identification (a card, necklace, bracelet
etc), which will have to be shown when ordering drinks, meals and other
included facilities. Ensure you take care of this as a penalty charge is
likely to be imposed if lost.
Behaviour: Both ourselves and each of the all inclusive hotels reserve
the right to withdraw the identification facility of any guest(s) whose
behaviour, or whose child/children’s behaviour is such that it is, in the
opinion of the management, detrimental to the enjoyment of the other guests.
Alcohol: Having drinks freely available throughout the day can be a
temptation to over-indulge. Please therefore consider your fellow guests
(and your own health) while bearing in mind that hotel management
have every right to refuse service to guests they believe to be intoxicated
or under age (in accordance with local law).
Bottled Mineral Water: In some all inclusive hotels bottled mineral
water does not form part of the ‘unlimited soft drinks service’.
Locally Sourced Drinks/Snacks: Drinks included are generally only
locally produced brands; cocktails, international and premium brands
and fruit juices are not available unless stated. The type and variety
of snacks served (between meal times) will vary between hotels and
resorts, and may be of a more traditional / local variety.
What’s Not Included: Any additional facilities or services available
may incur a charge. Consequently, not all bars/restaurants are
available free of charge.
Coming Home: Most hotels remove access to all inclusive facilities,
including food and drink at the time of checkout, which is generally
12 noon on the day of departure.

Climate guide
Weather: This weather information should only be used as a guide and you should fully research all weather before you book your holiday. We cannot be held responsible for any problems with the weather during your holiday.
To help you identify the right hotel or resort, we’ve included a few handy pointers, look out for;
O Complimentary WiFi Hotels or resorts offering complimentary WiFi anywhere on its grounds*, will carry this icon.
*This could be in public areas only, and is subject to availability
O Family friendly If children are more than just welcome, in fact there are facilities specifically for children e.g. kids’ club, children’s pool, children’s play area and children’s
dining options, you’ll see this icon on the page.
O Adult only For grown up hotels and resorts, look out for this icon – it means all guests will be aged 16 or over.
Safety & Hygiene
Your health and safety is of paramount concern to us, especially if
children are involved. In addition to monitoring the hygiene and safety
standards in all the hotel and apartments that we use, it is appropriate
that we bring to your attention the need for you to be careful and to
take necessary precautions whilst overseas and we need your help and
cooperation with this. We would ask you to pay close attention to the
following information, together with any other information we, our agents
or suppliers, provide to you before you go, during your flight and when
you arrive in your destination and at your hotel. It is most important that
you familiarise yourself with this information and any other information
you are given or on display.
Swimming Pools & Water Features
Please make use of the pool shower facilities before swimming – this
helps to prevent any potential infections and helps to keep the pool
clean. Every pool is different and most hotels / apartments do not
employ lifeguards, so you are strongly recommended to familiarise
yourself with the pool layout, identifying the deep and shallow ends
before using. Do not use the pool after dark or when the pool is closed,
even if the pool has underwater lights. You should never swim when you
have been drinking alcohol. Whilst some of our hotels and apartments
have water features, such as slides or flumes, which may appear in
our photography, generally we do not recommend these are used. It is
possible such features may have been replaced or removed since the
photography was taken.
Overseas Safety Standards
Regrettably the safety standards and regulations overseas may not be
of the same level that we enjoy in the UK. For instance, the design and
height of balconies may differ. The setting and enforcement of local
regulations is a matter for the Authorities of the country and the foreign
supplier of the services concerned. We are working with hoteliers to
improve standards wherever possible. You should familiarise yourself
with fire procedures, including emergency exits in your accommodation,
the swimming pool(s) area and any unfamiliar cooking appliances. If in
doubt, ask your representative or an appropriate member of staff.
Children
Children must be supervised by you at all times, especially near water,
on balconies or in unfamiliar buildings and surroundings.
Stomach Upsets
It is still a relatively common occurrence to suffer gastric illness when
travelling abroad and being exposed to a different environment. There
are many ways you can reduce the possibility of being affected, such
as, not eating undercooked food, avoiding ice in drinks, ensuring you
drink plenty of bottled water and avoid over exposure to the sun. If you
have any concerns regarding the food at your resort, please inform the
accommodation provider straight away.
In the unlikely event that you or any member of your party is ill,
please ensure that a doctor is seen locally and that you inform your
accommodation provider during your stay. Please also contact us on
01772 550185 in order that we can provide you with appropriate
assistance. The health and safety of our customers is paramount to us,
and we will take up any complaints of illness or injury with our supplier
to ensure we are only providing safe and enjoyable holidays to our
customers.
PLEASE NOTE – We are aware of the growing trend in bringing false
sickness claims against tour operators. If we have reason to believe that
any claim or complaint made by you is false or exaggerated, we will
work with our agent, the supplier and the relevant authorities to take
appropriate action. Customers bringing false allegations against a tour
operator may face prosecution in the UK or abroad.
Out & About
Due to rough terrain and uneven surfaces, we recommend that you are
extra careful and vigilant when visiting temples and other sites of interest
and when crossing roads. Crimes against people and property are a
fact of life throughout the world and you have the same responsibility
for your own safety as you do at home. In some places the local police
may not be very cooperative or interested when you report a theft or
need insurance confirmation so always take care of your property. It is
recommended not to approach cats and dogs and other animals as
these may carry the rabies disease which can be passed on through bites
and scratches. Please exercise caution before entering the sea, as the
seabed is not even and changes in depth. The sea is capable of springing
surprises and we have not inspected the beach or seabed for its safety.
SECTION 4 – YOUR JOURNEY
Luggage Allowance
Please ensure that luggage taken with you is in good condition. We will
advise you of the luggage allowance applicable to your flight at the
time of booking, this will be confirmed on your e-ticket. Many airlines
charge extra for baggage. Hand Luggage can normally be carried,
however please check with your carrier prior to travel. For further
information regarding your allowances you can contact the airline with
which you are travelling. Due to increase security at airports please
ensure you are familiar with what is allowed in your luggage please
check www.caa.co.uk.
Flight Routing
A direct flight may touch down en-route for re-fuelling, or to pick up and/
or drop off passengers. In these instances you are not normally required
to disembark and the flight is still considered to be a direct flight - with
the exception of the USA where you will disembark and clear customs
at your first point of entry. A non-direct flight may require a change of
aircraft en-route while a non-stop flight will take you directly to your final
destination airport without stopping.
Non-Smoking Policies
Airlines: All of the airlines featured in this brochure do not permit
smoking on their aircraft.
Airports: Some airports also have non-smoking policies; however some
do provide designated smoking areas.
Hotels: Many of the hotels featured have non-smoking rooms. If you
require a non-smoking room, please make your request at the time of
booking. These requests cannot be guaranteed.
SECTION 5 – DRIVING
Car Hire Information
Driving standards in some countries may not be as high as you
experience in the UK and rental policies can differ. If you do hire a
car during your holiday we recommend that you select reputable
companies, preferably those who provide assistance cover in case of
breakdown or emergency. Gold Medal offers car hire services in many
countries, please ask for information.
Unused Services: We do not provide refunds for any unused
pre-booked services. Any changes you may need to make to your
arrangements during your holiday may incur additional charges. If car
hire is booked subsequently to booking your package holiday this will
not form part of your package and therefore will not be covered under
the package rules and regulations.
SECTION 6 – MEDICAL AND HEALTH REQUIREMENTS
Health Precautions: Health facilities, hygiene and disease risks vary
worldwide. You should take health advice about your specific needs as
early as possible. Sources of information include the following websites:
www.fco.gov.uk, www.hpa.org.uk and www.nathnac.org or your
General Practitioner or a specialist clinic. If you are visiting a European
Union (EU) country you should obtain a European Health Insurance
Card (EHIC) and take it with you when you travel. The EHIC can be
obtained free of charge by completing an application form available
from main Post Offices and from www.dh.gov.uk/travellers. Please note,
the EHIC is in addition to Travel Insurance, not instead of it.
Travellers with Reduced Mobility
Overseas Accommodation and Overseas Transport Arrangements:
The majority of overseas accommodation, overseas transport (including
transfers) and other holiday services provided overseas are not
equipped to cater for the needs of persons with reduced mobility.
Furthermore the natural terrain and the layout of some resorts can
sometimes make life difficult for wheelchair users. It is therefore important,
if you have any disability, that the appropriate enquiries are made
about the suitability of particular accommodation, resorts, transport and
services, and that you are fully satisfied you have made the correct
choice before you book and confirm your holiday. Please contact our
Reduced Mobility team on 0800 916 0658 who will be happy to
assist. We cannot be held responsible if you fail to tell us about special
needs/requirements that will affect your holiday experience and this
means we will not compensate you.
At the Airport & Onboard Your Flight: If you have a disability,
reduced mobility or special need that you require assistance with,
either at the airport or onboard the aircraft please let us know as soon
as possible. We would like to know if you have a pre-existing medical
condition or recent injury, so that we can answer any questions and
ensure there are no concerns about your fitness to fly.
Travelling when Pregnant: Most airlines enforce strict regulations for
expectant mothers. Airlines generally allow expectant mothers to travel
anytime up to 24 to 36 weeks into their pregnancy with a covering note
from their GP. We strongly advise you to consult your local GP and
airline concerned if you plan to travel whilst pregnant.
To contact the Reduced Mobility Team please call 0800 916 0658.
(This is a dedicated number for special assistance enquiries and cannot
transfer calls to other departments.)
SECTION 7 – TRAVEL TIPS
Maps/Climate Charts
Maps are to be used as a guide only and are not to scale. Climate
information is based on averages.
Money
We recommend the purchase of a Cash Passport for the bulk of
your holiday money, with a small amount of local currency for initial
sundry items. Major credit cards are also widely accepted in all the
destinations in this brochure. In some cases local currencies may have
to be purchased after arrival or there may be restrictions on the amount
you are permitted to buy in advance. We suggest you contact your
Travel Agent for details.
Power & Water Supplies
In most destinations you will find the supplies of water and power to be
extremely reliable; however, in some countries this is not the case and
these places may frequently suffer from power cuts and restrictions on
the water used.
Public Holidays
In Muslim countries, dates of religious festivals are fixed by local
sightings of the moon. Ramadan, is a period of fasting and there may
be restrictions on drinking alcohol and eating in public. Ramadan is
estimated to fall between 15 May and 14 June 2018 and during this
period some shops and restaurants may close. Chinese New Year is a
major celebration throughout Asia so flights and hotels may be extremely
busy during this time. Most ethnic Chinese businesses, including shops
and restaurants (but not hotels), may be closed. In 2018, Chinese New
Year will be on 16 February. If you would like to know more about
international public holidays and impact of events, please contact the
appropriate tourist board or speak to your travel agent.
FCO Advice

Las Vegas Booking conditions
82
Please read the following booking conditions carefully as they set out
the terms and conditions of the contract between you and Gold Medal
Travel Group PLC (“we”, “us” and “our”). Please note that our prices
are based on bookings made by UK residents only. If you are not a
UK resident, you may be liable upon check-in/check-out for additional
charges. We will not be liable for such additional charges. If you are not
a UK resident you must book by phone and inform your booking agent
of your residency prior to booking. These booking conditions apply to
bookings of packages, accommodation only and/or flight only. Your
contract will be governed by English law and any disputes will be dealt
with in the courts of England and Wales. Our obligations to you will
depend on whether or not you buy a package holiday. A package
holiday (“Package”) as defined by the Package Travel, Package
Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992. Section A. Package
Holiday consists of transport and accommodation booked at the same
time at an inclusive price. Section B Other Travel arrangements such as
flights, or accommodation booked separately are sold by Gold Medal
as an Agent for the supplier and you will have a direct contract with
them. Section C indicates applicable to all bookings.
A. PACKAGE HOLIDAY
The information in our brochure and on our website, along with the terms set out
below and the terms set out in section C, apply when you book a Package.
A1. Your Contract/Financial Protection
All Sales that incorporate flights include the amount of £2.50 per person
as part of the ATOL Protection Contribution we pay on your behalf. The
air holidays and flights in the brochure are ATOL Protected, since we
hold an Air Travel Organisers Licence granted by the CAA (ATOL 2916).
In the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not
stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you have paid to
us. For further information visit the ATOL website www.atol.org.uk. We are
also members of ABTA (V6805) and comply with their Code of Conduct
and provide financial protection for package holidays where appropriate.
Where you book with us via an agent, payments you make to that agent will
be held by the agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the
Air Travel Trust at all times, but subject to the agent’s obligation to pass on
such payments to us for so long as we do not fail. In the unlikely event of our
failure, any of your payments held at that time by the agent or any payment
subsequently accepted from you by the agent, is and continues to be held
by the agent on behalf of and for the benefit of the Trustees of the Air Travel
Trust without any obligation to pay that money to us. If we, or the suppliers
identified on your ATOL certificate, are unable to provide the services listed
(or a suitable alternative, through an alternative ATOL holder or otherwise)
for reasons of insolvency, the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust may make a
payment to (or confer a benefit on) you under the ATOL scheme. You agree
that in return for such a payment or benefit you assign absolutely to those
Trustees any claims which you have or may have arising out of or relating
to the non-provision of the services, including any claim against us, the travel
agent (or your credit card issuer where applicable). You also agree that any
such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if that other body has paid
sums you have claimed under the ATOL scheme.
A2. Price Changes
Changes in transportation costs, including the cost of fuel, dues, taxes
or fees chargeable for services such as landing taxes or embarkation
or disembarkation fees at ports and airports mean that the price of your
Package may change after you have booked. However there will be
no change within 30 days of your departure. We will absorb and you
will not be charged for any increase equivalent to 2% of the price of
your Package, which excludes insurance premiums and any amendment
charges. You will be charged for the amount over and above that,
together with an amount to cover agents’ commission. If this means that
you have to pay an increase of more than 10% of the price of your
Package, you will have the option of accepting a change to another
Package if we are able to offer one (if this is of equivalent or higher
quality you will not have to pay more but if it is of lower quality you
will be refunded the difference in price), or cancelling and receiving a
full refund of all monies paid, except for any amendment charges. You
must cancel within 14 days from the issue date printed on your final
invoice. We will consider an appropriate refund of insurance premiums
paid if you can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your
policy. Should the price of your Package go down due to the changes
mentioned above, by more than 2% of your Package cost, then any
refund due will be paid to you.
A3. Changes Made By Us Before Travel
From time to time we may have to change details of the package
you have booked. If any change will have a significant effect on your
package, we will tell you about it before you travel, if there is time.
Changes we will tell you about include:
OChange of your UK departure airport (although a change between
London airports including Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted, Luton will not
usually be considered significant).
OSignificant change of your destination
OA change of more than 12 hours to the time you leave the UK or
your destination
OIf we downgrade your accommodation by one full Tour Operator rating
If you do not want to accept a significant change, which we tell you
about before you depart, we will, if we are able to do so, offer you an
alternative package of equivalent or closely similar standard and price
at no extra cost, or a less expensive package, in which case we will
refund the difference in price. If you do not wish to take the alternative
we offer you, you can choose a different package offered for sale
by us and pay, or receive a refund of, any price difference. Or, if you
prefer, you can cancel your Package and receive a full refund of any
money you have paid to us, except for any amendment charges. We
will consider an appropriate refund of insurance premiums paid if you
can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy. Unless
the change is as a result of circumstances listed in the paragraph
below headed ’Circumstances Beyond our Control’, we will pay you
compensation. If you have not accepted the change but have accepted
an alternative holiday, the compensation we will pay you will be
nominal and will be to compensate you for the inconvenience of having
to make alternative arrangements but otherwise we will have no liability
to pay you compensation. If you have accepted the change, again, the
compensation will be nominal unless, upon your return, you can justify to
us that you suffered an actual loss as a result of the change we made to
your holiday. If you have not accepted the change and have accepted
a refund of your holiday cost, the compensation will be a nominal sum
designed to compensate you for your inconvenience of arranging for
the refund and making any alternative arrangements you subsequently
make but otherwise we will have no liability to pay you compensation.
A4. Minor Changes By Us Before Travel
Any change which we do not consider significant, is a minor change.
We will endeavour to tell you about a minor change before you travel
but we are not obliged to do so and we will not pay compensation.
The flights we offer are operated by a range of scheduled or charter
airlines, using wide or narrow body jet aircraft. It may not be possible
at the time of booking to specify the airline or type of aircraft. Please
note that two airlines may share the same services, therefore a flight
may not be operated by the airline whose designated code is shown
on your itinerary and ticket. We are required to inform you of the identity
of the airline operating your flight. Any changes to the operating airline
will be notified to you in all cases at check in or at the boarding gate.
We reserve the right to change airlines or aircraft types at any time and
changes of this type will not constitute a significant change.
A5. Cancellation By Us
We reserve the right to cancel any package sold but we will not do so
within 10 weeks of departure except on rare occasions for example if
there is insufficient demand for your particular Package, or are forced to
do so because of unusual circumstances we could not have foreseen,
where we could not avoid the results of those circumstances even after
taking all reasonable care. (See ‘Circumstances Beyond Our Control’
below) No compensation will be payable in these circumstances,
whenever they happen, and we will only have to offer you the below
choices. We can also cancel if you fail to make payment for your
booking on time. If we have to cancel a package for any particular
reason, we will tell you as soon as reasonably possible. In these
circumstances, we will, if we are able to do so, offer you an alternative
Package of equivalent or closely similar standard and price at no extra
cost, or a less expensive Package, in which case we will refund the
difference in price. If you do not wish to take the alternative we offer
you, you can choose another offered for sale by us and pay any price
difference. Or, if you prefer, you can receive a full refund of any money
you have paid to us, except for any amendment or credit card charges.
We will consider an appropriate refund of insurance premiums paid if
you can show that you are unable to transfer or reuse your policy.
A6. Circumstances Beyond Our Control
Except where we say differently elsewhere in these conditions, we
will not pay any compensation, reimburse expenses, or cover losses for
any amount or otherwise accept responsibility if we have to change your
Package after departure, or we, or our suppliers, cannot supply your
Package, as we, or they, had agreed, or you suffer any loss or damage
of any description, as a result of circumstances beyond our control. When
we refer to circumstances beyond our control, we mean any event that we,
or the supplier in question, could not foresee or avoid, even after taking
all reasonable care. Such circumstances will usually include, but are not
limited to, war, terrorist activity, civil unrest, industrial dispute, bad weather
(actual or threatened) and significant building work ongoing outside of your
accommodation, which is not known to us in advance of your departure
date and building work from a third party (such as resort development).
A7. Changes Made After Travel
If, after your departure, a significant part of your pre-booked
Package arrangements cannot be provided, you will be offered a
suitable alternative if possible. If appropriate, we will also pay you
compensation in accordance with the table in the section entitled
‘Changes Made By Us Before Travel’ unless the reason for the change
is due to circumstances beyond our control (see section entitled
‘Circumstances Beyond Our Control’). If it is not possible to offer you
a suitable alternative or, for good reasons, you do not accept the
alternative arrangements, you will have the right to cancel your booking.
In this event, you will have the right to be returned by the same means of
transport to your original departure point at no extra cost provided that
transport is available. This does not impose an obligation on us to make
specific transport arrangements for you if none are available.
A8. Flight Delays
Where a flight is cancelled, delayed or overbooked, you may be
entitled to make a claim against the airline concerned under the
Denied Boarding Regulations 2004. Full details will be available at
all EU airports and from your airline. However, you should note that
reimbursement of the cost of a flight that forms part of your holiday is
the responsibility of your airline and will not automatically entitle you to
reimbursement of the cost of your holiday from us.
A9. Our Responsibilities Towards You
We accept responsibility for ensuring that the package you buy is of
a reasonable standard and as originally described to you, subject
to any amendments you accept prior to departure. If any part of the
package is not as described, we will pay you reasonable compensation
as appropriate for that part of the package unless this is due to
circumstances beyond our control. We have taken all reasonable steps
to ensure that the services provided by ourselves and our suppliers are
of a reasonable standard but we do advise that not all local standards
will reach the standards you might expect in the UK.
If whilst on holiday you suffer an injury, illness or death as a result of
a fault on our part, or on the part of our suppliers or their employees
acting in the course of their employment we may pay compensation
similar to that which you might receive under English law, in an English
Court. However, we will not do so if your injury, illness or death was
your own fault, the fault of someone unconnected with the package we
sold or if it was due to an event which could not have avoided even
with all due care or which could not have been anticipated.
Please notify us of any potential claim within 3 months of returning
home and you must agree to assign any rights you have against the
supplier at fault to us to enable us to recover any payments we make
to you. Where the incident is covered by an international convention,
such as those relating to international air and sea travel and hotel or rail
transport, our liability will be limited accordingly. Please ask to see the
relevant Conventions that may apply to your package.
Please note, we cannot accept responsibility for any services which
do not form part of our contract; for example, any additional services
or facilities which your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide
for you. If you suffer an injury illness or death whilst taking part in an
activity which does not form part of your package holiday, we will, at
our reasonable discretion offer advice and assistance to enable you to
consider taking legal action against those responsible.
Maximum Liability: Our maximum liability is £5,000 per booking
form and if you have legal expenses insurance, we would expect you
to make a claim against that policy and in all cases, if you recover
compensation, to repay any costs which we incur on your behalf. This
maximum amount will only be payable where everything has gone
wrong and you have not received any benefit at all from your holiday.
Where we are found liable for loss of and/or damage to any luggage
or personal possessions (including money), the maximum amount we
will have to pay you is £1,000 for luggage and £300 for personal
possessions (including money).
Where any claim or part of a claim relates to any transport (including
the process of getting on/off the transport) provided by any air, sea, rail
or road carrier or any stay in an hotel, the maximum we will have to pay
you in respect of that claim or that part of a claim if we are found liable
to you on any basis is the maximum which would be payable by the
carrier or hotelier concerned would have to pay under the international
convention or regulation which applies to the travel arrangements or
hotel stay in question (for example, Athens Convention for international
travel by sea, Warsaw Convention as amended or unamended the
Montreal Convention for international travel by air and/or for airlines
with an operating licence granted by an EU country, the EC Regulation
on Air Carrier Liability No 889/2002 for national and international
travel by air, the Berne Convention for international travel by rail). Where
the carrier or hotelier would not be obliged to make any payment to
you under the international convention or regulation in respect of a claim
or part of a claim, we are similarly not obliged to make a payment to
you for that claim or part of the claim. When making any payment,
we are entitled to deduct any money which you have received or are
entitled to receive from the carrier or hotelier for the complaint or claim
in question. Copies of the applicable international conventions and
regulations are available on request.
Please note, we cannot accept any liability for any damage, loss,
expense or other sum(s) of any description (1) which on the basis of
the information given to us by you concerning your booking prior to
our accepting it, we could not have foreseen you would suffer or incur
if we breached our contract with you or (2) which did not result from
any breach of contract or other fault by ourselves or our employees
or, where we are responsible for them, our suppliers. Additionally we
cannot accept liability for any business losses.
A10. Airline Collapse
In the unlikely event that the airline with which you are travelling ceases
to trade whilst you are abroad, you must contact us at the earliest
opportunity to allow us to seek to find you an alternative return flight.
We shall not be liable for any costs you incur in making your own return
flight arrangements if you have not given us the opportunity to arrange
an alternative flight home for you.
B. SINGLE COMPONENTS
The terms set out below, together with the terms set out in Section C
apply when you book a ‘Flight Only’ or only a ‘Hotel’. They apply
whether you book one component or more than one component.
Booking more than one component does not create a Package.
B1. Price Changes
Price increases may occur any time prior to departure, you will be
liable to pay any such increases in full. If, before you book, we know of
circumstances that may cause an increase in the price of your booking
after you have paid, we will endeavour to provide details to you.
B2. Transfer of Bookings
In the case of a scheduled flight only booking, transfer to another
person will involve cancelling the original booking, thereby incurring any
relevant cancellation charges and then making a new booking, which
will be subject to availability and any additional price increase.
Transfer of any other type of booking is subject to the supplier’s own
terms and conditions and the applicable amendment or cancellation
charges as stated in section C.
B3. Changes Made to Your Booking
Where a supplier makes a change to a non-Package booking you
do not have the same legal rights as with a Package booking. If we
are aware of any change which we believe will materially affect your
booking we will tell you as soon as reasonably practicable but you
must appreciate that we will only have an obligation to tell you if we
have been told in the first place by the supplier. In the case of flights,
we recommend once you have departed the UK that you check
directly with your airline or view your scheduled flight details on www.
checkmytrip.com for any schedule changes. When a change occurs it
is the responsibility of the supplier to make alternative arrangements; it
is not our responsibility. Where, however, we believe a change has a
significant effect on your booking, we will endeavour to arrange with
the supplier(s) to provide you with suitable alternative arrangements. If
suppliers impose additional costs for any alternative arrangements you
will be obliged to pay those. If the supplier authorises a refund to be
made, we will pass this onto you, less insurance premiums and Airline
Failure Protection where applicable.
B4. Our Liability to You
Our responsibil
