Elite Travel appoints Katarina Piljic as the Business Manager. Contact details, authorization, responsibilities and duty time are available at the link above or in Final Provisions chapter.

General Conditions

This document represents the entire agreement between the Client/contractor and Elite Travel, who is the tour operator. Elite Travel will be responsible to the Client for supplying the Travel as described at www.elite.hr or in the other promotional materials published by Elite Travel, except where such services cannot be supplied, or the itinerary used is changed due to delays or other causes of whatever kind or nature beyond the control of Elite Travel. In such circumstances, Elite Travel will do its best to supply comparable services, accommodations and itineraries, and there shall be no refund in this connection. Elite Travel act only as an agent for the Client and upon the express condition that Elite Travel shall not be liable or responsible for any direct, indirect, consequential or incidental damage, injury, loss, accident, delay or irregularity of any kind, which may be occasioned by reason of any act or omission of any third party (including without limitation, any act, inaction or breach of contract of any third party, which is to or does supply any goods or services for this Travel). Without limiting the foregoing, Elite Travel does not own or operate any third party suppliers of services such as hotels, restaurants, transportation companies, sightseeing companies or local tour operators, which are considered to be separate and independent entities, and Elite Travel is only eligible if their choice is not made in accordance with the rules of business and best practices in the agency's business. Elite Travel is not responsible for any injury, death, loss or expense due to overbooking of accommodations, default of any third parties, sickness, weather, strikes, acts of God, act of Government, acts of terrorism, criminal activity, social unrest, industrial unrest, war, quarantine, force majeure events or any other cause beyond its control. All such risk, loss and expense must be borne by the Client/contractor. Occasionally, it may be necessary to alter or amend itineraries, accommodation and sightseeing arrangements from those published. This may be due to traffic, weather and other operational needs prevailing at the time, and is always made in the best interests of Client´s comfort. Any personal expenses incurred by a Client as a result of any delay, alteration or curtailment of any Travel, whether caused by mechanical defect, strikes or any other cause listed above, are the responsibility of the Client (we strongly recommend all clients take out Travel Insurance; see your licensed travel agent). Elite Travel is unable to guarantee exact arrival and departure times, and is not liable for any failure to make connections with any other service, or guarantee the operation of any particular service if not stated different in service description. In the case of breakdown and other unforeseen circumstances, Elite Travel reserves the right to substitute vehicles/vessels other than specified, to ensure the operation of a Travel. These vehicles/vessels will be modern vehicles/vessels but may not have some of the features described in product description.
In the event that the Client is not an individual traveler/person but other company/entity engaged in travel organization services, by virtue of which Elite Travel is a contractual partner of that company in providing customer service for Travel, Elite Travel shall be deemed to be an intermediary in the provision of services. Additionally, Elite Travel does not have any direct liability with regard to the actions and parts of the Travel carried out by a third party (carrier, hotel, etc.) in relation to the Client/traveler, regardless of whether they are engaged by Elite Travel or not. In the event that any damages to the Client/individual traveler have occurred during the service of the third-party listed herein, Elite Travel shall promptly notify the above mentioned Client/travel organization, which is the initial travel organizer, of all necessary data, in order to ensure that any of its potential direct and/or regressive claims should directly target the third party/service provider. The provisions of this paragraph apply unless otherwise agreed with the Client (the travel organizer) and in the event that it is not contrary to the cogent provisions of the law.

These Terms & Conditions do not apply to Travels in a Combined Travel Plan, except in the part of the Passenger Protection in the event of an insolvency of the Elite Travel. Combined Travel Plan involves at least two different types of travel services purchased for the same Travel or holiday package that do not represent a package arrangement (eg. separate hotel, airline tickets, transfers and other ancillary services). When providing services for Combined Travel Plan, Elite Travel acts on behalf of and for the account of the service provider, or as a licensed sales agent of various service providers (airline companies, hotels, transfers, tourist agency reservation agencies and similar) and each of the service providers is solely responsible for the proper execution of their services in accordance with the contract. In the final travel documents, the traveler/Client will be informed about the contact of the service provider.

However, Elite Travel will pay attention to the Client´s rights in accordance with good business practices in tourism; provide information on the reasons for non-compliance with the contracted service and offer possible alternatives. If a Client has caused a problem by negligence or inadvertent, Elite Travel may charge a reasonable fee for assistance that will not be higher than the actual cost.
Elite Travel does not respond to possible errors in the press, promotional materials or on the website or for any subsequent changes in the new releases of promotional materials and programs that may distract the Client/contractor before the conclusion of the Contract, therefore the relevant information is information contained in the Agreement/Voucher and not the one contained in promotional material.
Please note that if Client arrange for payment through an unaccredited agent, which is not our contractual partner, the unaccredited agent will not be considered as an agent for the purpose of receipt of monies. Receipt of deposits and subsequent payments by the travel agent does not constitute receipt of those monies by us, and the travel agent has no authority, expressed or implied, to receive monies on our behalf. There is no liability on our part, in respect of any monies paid to your travel agent. The company reserves the right to cancel any ticket or booking, or to refuse to carry any Client where payment has not been received by the company within the specified time. The company reserves the right to amend or cancel Travel at any time. These conditions should also be read in conjunction and with reference to general Terms & Conditions for Elite Travel Ltd Dubrovnik, Croatia.
