In this case, the passenger asserts all claims exclusively to the contractor or service provider on the spot.
Sark can determine the price of the arrangement in the program, while explicitly stating that the price can be reduced if a certain number of passengers check in or other well-defined conditions occur.

If the passenger does not show up or cancels the travel contract on the day of the start of the trip or even after its start, Sark or another travel organizer will charge him for the entire value of the arrangement.
If the conditions for reimbursement of costs due to cancellation of the application are determined differently in the program, the conditions set out in the program shall book.
Upon termination of the travel contract, the passenger must sign a cancellation document, which is offered to him for signing by the sales consultant. In the event that he refuses to sign this document, he shall be deemed not to have terminated the travel contract.

If the passenger changes the program during the trip or does not travel according to the program, which is an integral part of the contract with Sark, it is considered that the passenger has withdrawn from the contract during the trip. In this case, too, he is not entitled to reimbursement of costs or purchase price, neither in part nor in full.

VIII. DISCLAIMER RISK
If the passenger anticipates at check-in that due to certain circumstances (which may occur with him or his immediate family) he will not participate in the trip, he can pay the cancellation risk. The agreement on cancellation risk can be concluded no later than the day of confirmation of the reservation and is valid only in the case of official calls, unexpected deterioration of health or death in the immediate family (spouse, parents, children). The passenger can claim a refund of the amount paid from the paid cancellation risk only upon submission of the relevant written proof.
Cancellation risk is 5% of the full price of the arrangement. The program can be used to determine a different level of cancellation risk, or that cancellation risk is not possible.
In the event that the subject of the travel contract is the purchase of an airline ticket, Sark retains the reservation fee (TSC) in addition to the administrative costs. The passenger is therefore entitled to a refund of the amount paid for the contractually agreed tourist services, less administrative costs, payments for cancellation risk, and TSC. Sark is not responsible for any other costs incurred by the traveler as a result of the planned trip or other travel services under the travel contract (eg vaccination costs, visa, travel costs, etc.).
The passenger has the right to claim a refund based on the paid cancellation risk, in the event that the travel contract is terminated for the above reasons no later than two hours before the start of the trip. The start of the journey, which begins with organized bus, air or boat transport, is considered to be the hour of bus, plane, or ship departure. In the case where organized transport is not included in the tourist arrangement, the time when the passenger could actually take over the accommodation facility is considered to be the start of the trip.
If the passenger does not start the trip on the day set as the start of the trip and does not cancel the trip in writing before the start, he is not entitled to claim a refund.

In the case of tourist arrangements that do not include organized transport, the passenger is not entitled to a refund of the amount paid on the basis of cancellation risk if he does not show up at the accommodation facility on the day of the start of the trip.
It is also considered that the passenger did not start the trip or withdrew from the contract when the passenger is not accepted for transport by the carrier (air, ship, bus and the like) for any reason that may be safety or regulatory, regardless of whether happened at the beginning of the trip or during the trip. In such a case, the passenger is responsible for all damage caused and cannot claim any refunds based on the paid cancellation risk. The passenger is also not entitled to reimbursement due to the risk of cancellation if he does not provide appropriate written proof of the justified reason for the cancellation of the trip.
A claim for the risk of cancellation cannot be made after the start date of the trip, nor for the time of the unused part of the trip.
In other cases of documented force majeure, which are not events covered by the cancellation risk and due to which the passenger cancels the trip or withdraws from the contract, Sark has the right to reimbursement of all its costs incurred, as well as those arising from the cancellation. Force majeure must be documented by valid official documents and in such a way that it could not have been foreseen or avoided before the conclusion of the contract.
In the event that the passenger takes out travel cancellation insurance with one of the insurance companies, the passenger’s rights under the cancellation risk insurance are exercised with this insurance company, using the general terms and conditions of the insurance company. The course of resolving a claim and the time of resolving a claim are the responsibility of the insurance company through which the cancellation risk insurance is concluded.

In case of refusal of entry into the country or other obstacles, all costs are borne by the passenger himself.

According to the regulations of the World Health Organization, a traveler is obliged to be vaccinated and obtain an appropriate document when traveling to certain countries.

Sark reserves the right to change the timetable, types of aircraft, carrier and direction of flight (intermediate stops, return via another by airports, etc.), which occur due to various technical and organizational reasons. Delays can also occur, most often due to air congestion, strikes and bad weather, which are beyond the control of the organizer.
The changes from the previous paragraph in the case of package travel arrangements are not considered a change in the travel program, as the first and last day of the trip are intended exclusively for arrival and departure to the destination and related transports, but not for rest.
The passenger is obliged to check the return time with the organizer’s representative 48 hours before they return.
XV. LOSS OF DOCUMENTS

When arranging formalities in this regard, the passenger can turn for advice and assistance to the tour leader or Sark’s representative or the representative of the travel organizer who organizes the passenger’s travel arrangement.
In the event that the passenger has to interrupt the trip due to loss or theft of documents, he is not entitled to any refund of the paid trip or reimbursement.
The information that the passenger receives at the check-in point does not bind Sark more than the information in the program or offer. In case of doubt, it is always considered valid: written offer, written information or written explanation.
INSTRUCTIONS and SPECIAL CONDITIONS and USEFUL INFORMATION published in catalogs and / or price lists book to all arrangements for both group and individual departures, for tendered and specially prepared programs and reserved services, and are an integral part of the GENERAL TERMS.
Photographs published on the Internet and in advertising materials are of an informative nature, so Sark does not guarantee the completeness or authenticity of the data and appearance, when such a guarantee is not explicitly stated.
The figures in the weather tables are a multi-year statistical average and serve only as a guide for the passenger, so Sark is not responsible in case of discrepancies between these data and the actual situation.
XVII. CATEGORIZATIONS OF ACCOMMODATION FACILITIES AND HOUSE RULES IN GENERAL
Accommodation in the programs is marked in accordance with the official national categorization in each country, valid at the time of issue of the program, over which the organizer has no influence. The standards of tourist offers among the selected destinations are different and incomparable. It should be borne in mind that the criteria for categorization in some tourist destinations differ significantly from the criteria in force in the Republic of Slovenia or in most Western European countries, so it is recommended to book higher category accommodation at these destinations.
The organizer does not accept responsibility for any written or oral information provided by the authorized agency of the organizer that is not in accordance with the descriptions of services in its program.
House rules, food, services, beach as well as other accommodation facilities are under the control of local tourist organizations. The organizer has no influence on these elements either.
In the case of arrangements marked “all-inclusive”, the description of the services in the program or offer must be read carefully, as it does not appear to equate all “all inclusive” offers. Usually the basic service in the “all-inclusive” offer is full board (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), meals include drinks.
If the passenger does not pay extra for a room with special features (sea view, balcony, location – orientation, specific floor), he is accommodated in one of the rooms that are officially registered for rent to guests at the hotel. The distribution of rooms is the responsibility of the hoteliers, the travel organizer has no influence on this, he can mediate the passenger’s wishes, but he cannot guarantee that they will be fulfilled. When staying in a single room, the traveler must take into account that it usually does not meet the standard of a double room, that it is usually smaller and has a worse position. When staying in a triple room, the passenger must take into account that in most cases it is actually a double room with an extra bed, and the accommodation of a third person does not meet the standard of accommodation of the other two people. It is usually a folding bed, which is not the same size and comfort as a normal bed and is suitable for children.
The passenger must complain about irregularities or deficiencies on the spot, the tour leader, Sark’s representative or the representative of the travel organizer who organizes the passenger’s travel arrangement, the direct service provider or an authorized local agency. In case the complaint could be resolved on the spot (for example, lack of cleanliness of the room, equipment, location of the room, etc.), but the passenger did not complain about the mistake on the spot and did not inform the above persons about the irregularity, that the passenger agreed with the service provided and thus lost the right to file subsequent complaints with a request to reduce the price of the service or pay damages. Sark will not be treated of the complaint, to which the passenger did not attach the minutes of the representative of the organizer or service provider on the complaint, which will show that the deficiencies could not be resolved on the spot.
Complaint procedure: Immediately on the spot, the passenger complains about the inappropriate service to the representative of the organizer, and in his absence to the service provider. The passenger must cooperate with a representative with good intentions in resolving the cause of the complaint. If the passenger does not accept the offered solution of the complaint, which corresponds to the paid services under the program, Sark will not take into account the subsequent requests for compensation of damage or reduction of the price of the trip. If the cause of the complaint cannot be remedied, the passenger and the representative shall draw up a written confirmation. After returning from the trip, the passenger must send a written complaint to the following address within the legal deadline, ie within two months from the end of the trip: Sark d. o. o., Pražakova 12, 1000 Ljubljana, and attach evidence that will prove the validity of the complaint (mandatory written confirmation signed by a representative or service provider, any invoices due to additional costs, etc.). The organizer is obliged to respond in writing to the passenger for the first time within 8 days after receiving the complaint, and finally within the appropriate period necessary to obtain information on the cause of the complaint from the service provider; or, in the time necessary to obtain information from third parties in accordance with Article 892 of the Code of Obligations. Until the organizer issues a decision, the passenger refuses to forward the complaint to any other person, judicial institutions or provide information to the media and other publics.
The organizer will only deal with complaints where the cause could not be remedied on the spot. In the event of a complaint for a trip for which Sark is not the travel organizer, Sark will forward the complaint to the responsible travel organizer and inform the passenger in writing about the resolution of the complaint. In the event that Sark acts only in the role of an informant, the passenger must assert all complaints on the spot with the actual organizer of the optional trip, tour, etc. Without a written complaint, Sark does not process claims for price reductions, as well as compensation and other claims.
The complaint must be signed and may be submitted by each passenger on his own behalf or by a third party in writing. The authorization must be attached to the complaint, otherwise Sark will not deal with such a complaint.
The complaint must be substantiated. The passenger should therefore attach to the complaint the relevant evidence and / or the relevant certificate of the hotelier, carrier or other relevant person on the factual situation on the basis of which the passenger asserts his claim.
In accordance with Article 894 of the Code of Obligations, the maximum compensation for incomplete service is limited to the amount paid. The passenger is entitled to compensation in the amount of the real value of the services not performed. This provision does not book in the event that Sark has the right to cancel the arrangement or change the program, in accordance with the provisions of these general terms and conditions and the law. The limitation of liability applies to all trips for which an application form or travel contract has been concluded. The passenger is not entitled to compensation for lost profits and compensation for non-material damage and costs arising from it.
Return of items within 14 days or withdrawal from the contract.
The consumer (this applies only to natural persons who acquire goods for purposes outside their gainful activity) has the right to notify the company within 14 days of receipt of the goods (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) to withdraw from the contract without reason for his decision. The deadline starts one day after the date of receipt of the ordered item. The only cost borne by the consumer in connection with the withdrawal is the cost of returning the goods (which in the case of shipment is charged according to the price list of the delivery service and depends on whether it is a shipment/package/cargo). The goods must be returned to the seller no later than 30 days from the submitted notice of withdrawal from the contract (purchase):
