SECTION 3 Booking Conditions which will apply in addition to those set out in Section 1 if your contract is with Monarch - changes to and cancellation to your booking by Monarch Holidays
Although it is unlikely, Monarch Holidays may occasionally have to make changes to or cancel your booking and reserves the right to do so. However, Monarch Holidays promises that it will not make any significant changes to your confirmed booking less than 14 days before departure or cancel it after balance due date unless;-
forced to do so as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond its control, the consequences of which it could not have avoided even with all due care or,
In the case of cancellation, because you have failed to comply with any requirement of these Booking Conditions entitling Monarch Holidays to do so.
If Monarch Holidays makes a significant change to or cancels your booking, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible. A significant change is a change made before your arrival date which Monarch Holidays can reasonably expect will have a major effect on your use of your accommodation.
If a significant change has to be made (and the change is not acceptable to you) or your booking has to be cancelled before your arrival date, Monarch Holidays will, if possible and as soon as reasonably practical, offer you alternative accommodation (from the range Monarch Hotels has available) of similar type and standard in a similar location for the same or similar time of year. Obviously, if the alternative accommodation is advertised at a lower price, you will receive a refund (if you have already paid your total booking cost in full - otherwise the cost payable by you will be reduced accordingly) of the price difference.
If you do not wish to accept a significant change or any alternative accommodation offered or Monarch Holidays cannot offer you suitable alternative accommodation, you may cancel your booking / accept the cancellation and receive a full refund of all monies paid by you to Monarch Hotels for the booking. In the unlikely event that you fail to email us with confirmation that you wish to accept any change or alternative accommodation within the time period we reasonably stipulate, Monarch Holidays is entitled to assume you wish to cancel your booking of the accommodation concerned and receive a full refund of all monies paid to us for it.
Please note, no compensation is payable for minor changes. Minor changes do not entitle you to change to alternative accommodation or to cancel without paying the normal charges as set out in these Booking Conditions. A minor change is a change which Monarch Holidays could not reasonably expect to have a significant effect on your confirmed booking.
