This section draws your attention to key points relating to your booking.
What to take with you when you travel:
Please ensure you have your booking confirmation voucher and / or your booking reference with you when you travel. This will identify you as a Manchester airport group customer and will enable the service provider to verify your booking.

• If you do not tell the provider at the time it may be difficult to pursue a complaint at a later stage. Our service providers will do their utmost to help with any request, but assistance cannot be guaranteed.
• Please put any outstanding issues in writing (with receipts if appropriate) to: Manchester Airport Group Customer Relations, Holiday Extras, Ashford Road, Newingreen, Hythe, Kent, CT21 4JF or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org within six weeks of your return to the UK.

Best Price Guarantee
We check over 100 prices a week to bring you some unbeatable deals. If you find the same product or package of products on sale for less within 24 hours of making and paying for your booking with Manchester airport group then we'll give it to you FREE* (*subject to the following terms and conditions)
Terms and conditions:
1. The product you are comparing must be the same in every respect as the product you bought from Manchester airport group.
2. Where multiple rooms are booked each room is regarded as a separate product.
3. You must make your claim within 24 hours of making and paying for your booking with Manchester airport group.
4. Successful claims will not be paid until after the return date originally booked.
5. You must use the products or package of products as per the booking against which you are making your claim.
6. Cancellation of the booking cancels your right to claim under this guarantee.
7. Comparison prices must be listed and quoted in pounds sterling.
The following exclusions apply to price comparisons that will be considered as part of any claim made under this guarantee in respect of your bookings:
1. Prices from other suppliers that are conditional on buying other products
2. Prices that are part of a customer loyalty, members or loyalty reward scheme
3. Prices that are part of a staff discount scheme
4. Prices that are part of any other discount or special offer deal
Our suppliers' reservation and booking systems can vary in the way they round up or round down the VAT element of the total price payable. Because of this, our Best Price Guarantee will not apply to price differences of five pence or less where we have established that the VAT calculation is the sole reason for the difference.
• If you think you have found the same product or package of products cheaper elsewhere then call us on 0871 360 2427 and let us know. Please make sure that the product or package of products you are comparing is identical in all respects, and that it meets the terms above. If there is any variation then we cannot match the price or refund the cost.

• When calculating the Best Price Guarantee we consider only the price of the product or package of products, not any additional fees or charges e.g. credit card charges.
Prices can go up or down.
Manchester airport group, using Holiday Extras as the booking agent, is committed to providing the highest standards and the best choice of products, at great prices. Throughout the year we continually review our products and prices. There are likely to be some seasonal special offers. In some circumstances prices may go up between the time you looked for your initial quote and the time you make your actual booking.
Prices include VAT: All prices are for pre-booking and include VAT at the current rate. Hotel prices are given in pounds per person per night (twin prices based on two adults sharing) or pounds per room per night; parking prices are given in pounds per vehicle per whole or part day / 24 hour basis; airport lounge prices are given in pounds per person.
Credit cards and debit cards: We reserve the right to levy non-refundable surcharges for payment by debit or credit card. The scale of these will be clearly notified to you before any booking is confirmed. Your payment will appear on your statement as Holiday Extras. Credit card and debit card surcharges applied by us at the time of booking will be refunded if that booking is part of a successful Best Price Guarantee claim.

• You cannot get a refund or amend a hotel or hotel-with-parking booking in the 24 hours before your stay, or anytime thereafter.

• Where any amendment to a booking reduces the total number of rooms or nights required, you will be charged a cancellation fee of £15 per room, per night.

Changes and cancellations made by us:
Occasionally, we have to make changes and correct errors on websites and brochures and other details both before and after bookings have been confirmed. We reserve the right to do this and to amend and cancel confirmed bookings. If we have to make a significant change, i.e. a change of accommodation or parking location, we will let you know as soon as possible.
Where possible we will do so before your departure and we will offer you a choice from the following:
• (a) accepting the changed arrangements, or
• (b) choosing an alternative product of a similar standard (for less expensive products we will offer a refund of the difference), or
• (c) cancelling or accepting the cancellation, in which case you will receive a full and prompt refund of all monies you have paid to us.
• In the event of disruption caused by natural phenomena including, but not limited to, volcanic activity and adverse weather conditions, our normal cancellation and refund terms will apply.
Cancellation Charge Waiver
• You must select and pay for the Cancellation Charge Waiver when you make your booking. This will protect you if you subsequently cancel your booking in accordance with our Cancellation Policy, and Manchester airport group’s normal cancellation charges (£15 for hotels and hotels-with-parking) will not apply.
• Please note that you may not, in certain circumstances, cancel or amend your booking (see Cancellation Policy above). In these cases you will not receive a refund and you will be charged the full cost of your booking including the cost of the Cancellation Charge Waiver.
• The cancellation protection offered by the Cancellation Charge Waiver is not available if you are booking for the same day or the next day.
• The Cancellation Charge Waiver fee is non-refundable, except when part of a successful Best Price Guarantee claim.
Entry and exit procedures
• These vary at each car park. Please see the information on your confirmation. If you are charged by the car park because you do not follow the correct entry or exit procedures or present your confirmation voucher, Manchester airport group may not be able to obtain refunds on your behalf.
Park and Ride transfers
• Transfers to and from the airport are included in the Manchester airport group price, unless stated otherwise, or unless the car park is within walking distance of the airport terminal.

Occasionally, this may be the case with other car parks too.
Special needs parking:
• Where disabled facilities are provided, please ensure these are suitable for your needs.
• All parking is subject to the terms and conditions of the individual car park . These are available separately on request from the car park operator. Ensure no valuables are left in the vehicle, as Manchester airport group will not accept liability. Parking is always at the vehicle owner's risk.
