2.1 A 'booking' means any order for products or services you make on our Website which is confirmed by us. When you make a booking via this Website, the contract will be between the Travel Supplier(s) and you. AccraTown.com is therefore not a party to the contractual relationship in relation to the products and services you order on our Website, unless explicitly provided otherwise herein. Any queries or concerns relating to the product should be addressed to the Travel Supplier.
2.2 The term “Travel Supplier” includes airlines, tour operators, package holiday suppliers, hotels, hotel chains and hotel aggregators, insurance suppliers, rental car suppliers inter alia.
2.3 AccraTown.com makes the booking on your behalf and your contract will be subject to the Travel Supplier's terms and conditions, which could limit or exclude liability to you (often in accordance with various applicable international conventions). If you wish to review the relevant Travel Supplier's terms, we refer you to the Suppliers’ Conditions page of our Website where the Travel Supplier's terms are available through a link. In instances where it is not possible to access the Travel Supplier's terms by a link, we will at your request provide the Travel Supplier's contact details so that you may contact them. Please ensure you refer to the applicable Travel Supplier's terms and conditions for cancellation charges and other important terms and conditions.
2.4 By using this Website to book products and/or services, you authorise AccraTown.com to act as your representative during the process of comparison between Travel Suppliers and booking of products and/or services from the selected Travel Supplier and to make the payment for such products or services in your name and on your behalf, as required. Accordingly, AccraTown.com shall charge you with a service fee, depending upon which product you book. You will be advised of any fee before you confirm your booking.
2.5 Prices are confirmed at the final step of the booking path at the point when you click “Buy now”, make the reservation or similar, depending on service purchased. Prices are shown with rates of exchange calculated on a daily basis. Prices may therefore differ on a daily basis to reflect any movement in exchange rate levels. Taxes fluctuate in line with exchange rates. When a booking is made the exchange rate will be fixed at that time and will apply to any amendments or cancellations to that item within the booking. Exchange rates are determined by AccraTown.com.
2.6 After you confirm your booking, you will receive a confirmation email with a booking number. This is the moment that your contract in relation to the products and services ordered will come into existence. This confirmation email will provide all the details of the itinerary of your booking. Next, we will check that your booking has been correctly entered in the Travel Supplier’s booking system and that your payment can be correctly processed. Our obligation to issue the ticket will be subject to your payment having been received in cleared funds.
2.7 We reserve the right to cancel your booking in the event we have reasonable grounds to believe it is fraudulent. In such circumstances we will attempt to contact you, using the email address you provided at the time of booking, or your bank. In the event we are not able to contact you or your bank, we may cancel your booking with no liability whatsoever.
2.8 The electronic document by which your contract is formalised shall be filed in AccraTown.com’s records and may be accessed by you at any time upon request to us.
2.9 In relation to the 'special requests' options relating to any product (e.g. meals, disabled facilities, child seats etc.), AccraTown.com does not guarantee any such requests but will pass these requests on to the Travel Supplier. It is your responsibility to confirm with the Travel Supplier whether such special requests can be fulfilled.
Other booking conditions
3.1 Cancellations and modifications
Your ability to cancel or modify a booked travel product or service, and the method for doing so, will depend on the specific Travel Supplier's rules or terms and conditions. It therefore may not be possible to cancel or modify products or services ordered, or there may be specific requirements you will have to meet. In the event that you make any alteration to your booking (cancellation and/or modification), AccraTown.com reserves the right to charge you a service fee to cover the administration costs incurred by us. These charges do not include any charges imposed directly by the Travel Supplier, including any difference in fare/room rate/rental rate. In the event that you make a change to your booking, please note that any current fare available on the Website is not relevant to the cost of making your change.
In relation to Flight bookings, please note that for itineraries built up of different routings and more than one fare base, there may be more than one set of fare rules. In this instance, the most restrictive fare rules will apply. You should read all fare rules pertaining to your reservation. If changes or cancellations are permitted, then please call AccraTown.com to make the change. Please note that a 'no-show' for a flight may result in your full ticket being cancelled by the airline and therefore may not be refundable. Changes and cancellations cannot be made by email. You can reach the AccraTown.com call centre on +233(0)244661153.
In relation to Hotel bookings, the hotel's specific terms and conditions for cancellations and amendments are available online during the booking process and set out in your confirmation email. Where you make a booking modification, it is your responsibility to ensure that it does not conflict with any other product or service you have purchased.
In relation to Car rentals, the car supplier’s specific terms and conditions for cancellations and amendments will be available during the booking process and, for most bookings, through a link provided in your confirmation email. If you fail to cancel your reservation prior to the pick-up time and do not collect the vehicle on the pick-up date, or of you fail to comply with the pick-up terms (see car supplier terms and conditions), AccraTown.com on behalf of the car supplier reserves the right to make a 'no-show' charge of up to 100% of the total car rental booking value.
3.2 Price and payment
Total price of your booking will be shown once you have selected all the specific products you would like to acquire. Such price will include the price of all products selected and AccraTown.com’s service fees. Our service fees are independent of the price of the products and non-refundable in any case, as they are charged for the service provided by us in the booking process. Taxes fluctuate in line with exchange rates
The amount of the service fees depends on the products/services purchased. AccraTown.com may also charge additional service fees if you make a booking by phone or request changes or refunds. In the event that you use an unfunded credit card or a credit card which is rejected by the bank due to any other reason that is caused by you, we will charge a service fee and will provide you with instructions to make effective the payment of your booking. The service fee will be added to the final price. Until you make effective the full payment, you will not be able to receive your products. Moreover, we hereby bring your attention to the fact that, due to the nature of travel products, it is possible that price changes occur between your booking and the effective payment and you will have to assume the cost of the selected products at the moment that you are making the effective payment.
If you pay by credit card, payment for your flights may be taken directly by the airline. If there are any problems with your payment, we will contact you within 48 hours of your booking (or within 24 hours if you are travelling within 48 hours). AccraTown.com will not be liable for any subsequent price increase as a result of payment failure. Any price increase must be paid for by you before the booking can be confirmed. Please note that payment to the Travel Supplier and payment to us for any other products or charges may appear as separate transactions on your credit card statement.
Payments can be made by all major debit and credit cards as detailed on the Website. Payment methods other than those stated on the Website will not be accepted and no responsibility is accepted for cash or cheques sent through the post. Full payment for all products is required at the time of booking, except for hotel and car rental pay-on-arrival bookings or cruise bookings, where a deposit option may be available.
In order to provide greater security, you will be asked to enter all the information that is on your card for each purchase you make with AccraTown.com, as this information is not saved in our files longer than necessary to process the payment of each booking or in the tax recovery process as referred to in section 3.3 below. Please note that AccraTown.com is required to pass your card details to the relevant Travel Supplier for fulfilment of the booking. In agreeing to these terms and conditions you authorise us to do this on your behalf. All information is encrypted on our secure server. You authorise us to use the information on the credit card provided you (i) in order to make the purchase of the services required and to process related service fees (ii) for the payment of the premium for insurance and tourist assistance as applicable, (iii) for the processing of any applicable refunds and (iv) for the charge of costs and fees related to (a) the use of credit cards or (b) changes to your booking or to (c) tax refunds as referred to in section 3.3 of these terms and conditions.
In addition to our general service fee, we will charge you a fee for bookings made by credit or debit card. You will be notified of the relevant charges before you confirm the booking. AccraTown.com reserves the right to pass on any charges relating to card charge backs. If your booking is being paid for with a third party credit card we may require written authorisation to be provided by the card-holder. AccraTown.com or the Travel Supplier reserves the right only to deliver e-tickets, confirmations, e-vouchers or other travel documents to your credit card billing address or email address when requested to do so by the credit card issuer. All email addresses used must be valid at the time of booking.
Further, in an effort to minimise the effects of credit card fraud, we reserve the right to carry out random checks and may request for proof of your address and a copy of the credit card and recent statement before issuing any tickets. Please be aware that these checks are only carried out during our standard business hours. As a result, any tickets for bookings made outside of our business hours may not be issued until the next working day. AccraTown.com is not responsible for any costs incurred as a result of these checks.
In certain cases applicable payment can also be made through electronic direct debiting scheme if you possess an appropriate account in the respective country where you do the booking. There must be at least six working days between booking and flight date. By choosing direct debit as payment method AccraTown.com will be authorised to collect the complete amount of booking from your account at once. It is your responsibility to make sure that your account has sufficient funds. In the event that there is a charge back due to insufficient funds or to any other reasons that is caused by you, we will charge a service fee and will provide you with instructions to make effective the payment of your booking. This fee consists of fees taken by the bank and the additional expenses incurred by AccraTown.com. You are free to prove that less cost has occurred. When choosing direct debit as payment method AccraTown.com reserves the right to retain possible refunds until receipt of payment is irrevocable
In some cases, when you are unable to take your flight and the ticket is non-refundable, you may be eligible to claim some or all of the taxes charged at the time of purchase:
In case of tickets issued by IATA airlines, these airlines require that the demand for refund is submitted and managed through the travel agency issuer. If you wish to make a claim for any taxes that may be refundable please do so via email to email@example.com. You hereby authorise AccraTown.com to carry out all the activities necessary to obtain such tax refund. You agree that you have 12 months from the date of your scheduled flight to write and ask us for a refund after which time you agree to forfeit any right to apply for tax refunds. Please note that refunds can only be processed to the form of payment used at the time of booking and that all refunds are subject to the relevant airline's policy and a AccraTown.com refund service fee. You hereby authorise AccraTown.com to deduct the applicable refund service fee from the amount of the tax refund payable to you.
In case of tickets issued by non-IATA airlines or where payment for your flights has been taken directly by the airline, requests for refund should be made directly with the airline concerned but the refund service fee shall be due to AccraTown.com entity. You hereby authorise AccraTown.com to charge your credit card with the applicable service fee.
Refunds, if applicable, will be processed to the form of payment used at the time of booking. This will be made payable to the person who made the original payment. When processing a refund for a flight ticket, please be aware that not all taxes are refundable. A tax refund will be processed in accordance with the relevant airline's refund policy in the country concerned with the refund service fee due to AccraTown.com charged to the form of payment used at the time of booking.
All tickets sold on this Website are e-Tickets. E-Ticketing is a ‘paper-less’ way to book flights. Once you have made your booking, it is stored electronically in the airline reservation system. AccraTown.com will send you a confirmation email with your booking reference number, which serves as a receipt for your e-Ticket. You will NOT receive a physical ticket to present at the airport.
Please note that you may be required to produce your booking number and/or confirmation email to the relevant Travel Supplier as evidence of your booking. We recommend that you take a printout of your confirmation email with you, although not all airlines will ask to see this. Please note that airlines have their own rules and regulations with regard to e-Ticketing. AccraTown.com cannot be held responsible for non-compliance with these rules and regulations and strongly recommends that you check these details with your airline in advance of travel.
AccraTown.com relies on the information that you provide as being accurate and therefore cannot be held responsible if your e-Ticket does not arrive due to an incorrect email address or your junk email settings. You must notify us immediately if you change your email address or contact telephone number. In addition, please check that the name on your identity card matches the name on your ticket and/or booking confirmation.
In exceptional circumstances, due to ticketing restrictions outside its control, AccraTown.com may not be able to pass information about confirmed bookings to the airline to enable them to fulfil the booking. If this occurs we will attempt to notify you within 48 hours of confirmation and organise a refund or arrange an alternative. Where you choose an alternative and it is more expensive than your original booking, you will be responsible for paying the difference.
3.5 Travel insurances
It is recommended that you take out insurance for any travel, especially as there may be circumstances where the Travel Supplier will have no liability. If you select to purchase Travel Insurance through AccraTown.com’s Website, your contract will be directly with the Travel Supplier, whose terms and conditions will apply to that insurance.

ANNEX 1 SPECIAL CONDITIONS AND INFORMATION FOR FLIGHTS
Contracts for flights booked through our Website shall be with the relevant Travel Supplier and subject to their terms and conditions.
Please note that in relation to air fares there are additional terms specific to that fare. For example, tickets are normally non-changeable and non-refundable. You can view the fare rules when you view the Terms and Conditions of the Travel Supplier during the booking process. In addition, the majority of airlines reserve the right to make schedule changes and cancel confirmed bookings. AccraTown.com, as intermediate party, is not responsible for such schedule changes or cancellations.
Airlines may charge for additional services such as checked baggage, airport check-in, preferred seating, in-flight entertainment (if available), food, drink and snacks etc. Any charges for these additional services are not included in the price of your flight ticket unless explicitly provided otherwise and must be paid to the airline directly. AccraTown.com is not responsible for any additional costs incurred and advises you to contact the relevant airline to add any additional services and verify charges. You can check your baggage allowance by either visiting the airline's Website or, in the case of some airlines, by clicking here. Please note if your flight includes more than one segment you may have different baggage allowances; this can even be the case when flying with the same airline if for instance one flight is international and the other is domestic. This may mean that you are charged for any luggage in excess of the lower limit on the flight which bears the lower luggage limit.
The recommended minimum check-in time for international flights is 120 minutes prior to departure and for domestic flights, 90 minutes before departure. Some airlines require you to reconfirm your return flight booking at least 72 hours before travel. Failure to reconfirm your flight booking directly with the airline may result in cancellation. Flights must be used in the order set out in your itinerary - e.g. a failure to use the outbound flight or first stage of a journey could invalidate the rest of the ticket.
We strongly recommend (particularly if you are flying Economy class), that you check in early if you have particular seat requests. AccraTown.com has no control over the allocation of seats, even if pre-booked with the airline, and can make no guarantee that specific seats will be available on departure.
AccraTown.com is not responsible for the costs of any transfers between airports or terminals that you may incur.
Flights priced at special fares or best prices may not take the most direct route. Some itineraries require a change of aircraft en-route. A flight that is described as direct is one where there is no need to change aircraft during the journey. However, stops may be made en-route for re-fuelling or to let passengers on and/or off. Details of any stops will be given during your booking process and are clearly identified both on the Website and on your itinerary which will be sent to you when you make your booking.
The times given are given on the 24-hour clock system, approximate and based on outbound flights. They may vary depending on flight schedules, type of aircraft, weather conditions etc., and are indications of the hours spent actually flying (excluding time on the ground during stops en-route or when changing aircraft) and are therefore given for guidance only and are subject to alteration and confirmation.
Regulations vary with each airline, but some will refuse to carry women who will be 28 weeks or more pregnant on the date of return travel. If in doubt, please check with the airline concerned and 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.
In certain cases, in order to provide special return fares, we combine two one-way fares on different airlines or on the same airline. This means that you will have two separate bookings (one for your outbound flight and one for your inbound flight) and each booking will have its own fare rules. If you need to cancel one of the flights, you could keep the other without incurring any additional charges. If you miss the outbound flight, the inbound flight would not be cancelled by the other airline. Any cancellations, schedule changes or other modifications to one of the flights will not affect the other flight, and the fare rules of the other flight will still apply. For example if one of the flights is cancelled, the other airline has no obligation to refund the other leg of your journey or offer you an itinerary change. You may incur costs for any changes to the other flight if necessary.
Low-cost airline flights
This section refers to flight bookings only.
In the event low-cost airlines are included in your flight search, we will search the low-cost airline database, and then if you choose to buy, we will process the booking on your behalf. You may receive a confirmation email directly from the low-cost airline.
Your contract will be with the relevant low-cost airline. You will be subject to the terms and conditions of the low-cost airline. These can be viewed before you complete your booking, by clicking on the Terms and Conditions link, upon request from our call centres and after booking on your confirmation email or on the low-cost airline’s Website.
Please note that low-cost airlines may depart from smaller, regional and/or secondary airports.
ANNEX 2 SPECIAL CONDITIONS FOR CAR RENTAL
Contracts for car rental booked through our Website shall be with the relevant Travel Supplier and subject to their terms and conditions.
All drivers must display a full valid driving licence at time of pick up. Licence must be valid for at least 12 months from the last day of your car rental period and both paper and photo licences must be presented. You may also be asked to present a credit card as security for any damage that may be caused to the vehicle during your rental. It is your responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient funds available on the credit card to comply with the terms and conditions of your Travel Supplier. Failure to meet any of these requirements will invalidate your car rental and AccraTown.com will not be responsible for any costs you may incur.
ANNEX 3 SPECIAL CONDITIONS FOR HOTELS AND OTHER ACCOMMODATION
Contracts for hotel and other accommodation booked through our Website shall be with the relevant Travel Supplier and subject to their terms and conditions.
We offer star ratings as a general guide. You should be aware that these are not necessarily the official local rating and that standards can vary between hotels and accommodation of the same class in different countries, and even in the same country. Different countries have different standards; a 3 star hotel in one country is not necessarily equivalent to a 3 star hotel in another.
Check-in / Checkout times - Generally guests can check into a hotel or other accommodation around 2pm and check out at 12pm, local time. However, local variances may apply. Check-in and check-out times will normally be displayed on your hotel booking confirmation email. Should you require more information, please contact us.
Images - Whilst we endeavour to ensure that property images and descriptions of amenities and facilities displayed on AccraTown.com are an accurate and up to date representation of the properties, we cannot guarantee this always to be the case as we obtain this information from our Travel Suppliers. The images and information are provided to give a general 'feel' for the hotel.
Images of room types do not necessarily represent the bed configuration of the room being purchased. Also, there may be an additional charge for extra beds or cots. Please contact the hotel directly to confirm the exact bed configuration before purchase if required.
Breakfast is not included unless otherwise stated. Some hotels may charge additional local taxes.
