The lucky links service (+Shield Protection)
- General Provisions
- A flight designated as “lucky links”, available to Users in the Reservation System, includes at least two connecting flights, with one transfer or multiple transfers and one or more Carriers involved, and for which separate tickets are issued. In this situation, each part of the route takes place on the basis of a separate ticket and is considered a separate service that is unrelated to other services provided as part of the Trip. Additionally, in such instances, it does not matter whether separate tickets are issued for the services of several carriers or just a single one (“lucky links”). A combination of flights found via the Booking System as part of the lucky links service shall hereinafter be referred to as a “Trip”.
- Purchasing a lucky links ticket means purchasing more than one air ticket involving at least one connecting flight, for which the User receives separate flight tickets with one or more carriers as part of a single transaction process in the Booking System. The sum of tickets purchased for a given lucky links Trip is not a single combined flight ticket that encompasses all individual flights, which are part of the Trip.
- Due to the fact that the lucky links service is provided on the basis of separate flight tickets, through one or more carriers, and as part of a single Trip, the User is obliged to verify the luggage handling rules on all stages of the Trip, as well as the documents that authorise them to utilise the service, including entry or transit visas, which may be required in the country in which the lucky links service is provided or in which a transfer to another flight takes place.
- Purchasing separate tickets for different flights by the User as part of the lucky links service may be potentially subject to the risk of cancellation, delay or change of flight time and the resulting inability of the User to use another connection(s) which is part of the Trip, due to the fact that the transfer periods between individual air connections may be short (depending on the search parameters indicated by the User and the availability of flights in the Booking System).
- The availability of the lucky links service in the case of different flight combinations depends on the availability of flight tickets of individual Carriers, as well as the criteria determined by the Users in the Booking System.
- If information about a lucky links offer appears next to the search results, all persons travelling on the basis of tickets purchased as part of an offer marked in this way will be covered by the lucky2go assistance (“Shield Protection”) at an additional, non-refundable fee. This means that after purchasing tickets as part of this Trip, Users can receive assistance from lucky2go based on the terms established below:
- The basis for using the Shield Protection
- The User may take advantage of the Shield Protection if one of the connections which are part of the Trip is cancelled, delayed or rescheduled, resulting in the inability of the User to make a planned transfer or reach their destination.
- If the User receives information about a cancellation, delay or change in schedule of at least one of the lucky links connections, which would result in their inability to successfully make the Trip, the User shall notify lucky2go that they are unable to make use of the next air connection that is part of the Trip, as well as the reasons for it, based on the following terms:
- if the User learns about the cancellation, delay or rescheduling of at least one of the lucky links connections more than 48 hours before the scheduled start the Trip and if such an event will result in the inability of the User to make the Trip, the User is entitled to take advantage of the Shield Protection service, provided that they immediately notify lucky2go by phone or e-mail within 24 hours from the moment they receive such information.
- if the User learns about the cancellation, delay or rescheduling of at least one of the lucky links connections less than 48 hours before the scheduled start of the Trip and if such an event will result in the inability of the User to make the Trip, the User is entitled to take advantage of the Shield Protection service, provided that they notify lucky2go by phone or e-mail within 12 hours from the moment they receive such information and at least 8 hours before the scheduled start of the Trip).
- If the User becomes aware of the cancellation, delay or time change of at least one of the lucky links connecting flights during the course of the Trip, i.e. between individual connecting flights or during a transfer to the next section of the Trip or later than 8 hours before the start of the Trip, they may use the Shield Protection service, provided that they notify lucky2go immediately, but no later than within 1 hour from obtaining such information, by phone or via the email address provided.
- Failure to notify lucky2go within the aforementioned timeframes shall result in the inability to cover the given Trip with the Shield Protection service.
- User notifications are accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, only via the dedicated phone number, provided in the “lucky links” tab on the lucky2go website (+44 7520631260 ) and via e-mail, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Customer support is available in the language of the lucky2go website via which the lucky links service was purchased, or in English, depending on the availability of the lucky2go consultants.
- The User shall be entitled to take advantage of the Shield Protection only if they exercise due diligence that can be expected from a traveller who wishes to make it on time to each successive connection that is part of the Trip, even if a cancellation, delay or change of schedule occurs in the case of at least one of the lucky links connections, resulting in the User’s inability to make the Trip, and only provided that the User does not make changes to the documentation necessary to make the Trip without informing lucky2go about that.
- As part of the Shield Protection service, relevant parties reserve the right to verify and determine the times of arrival and departure of aircraft, as well as the amount of time available for transfers between different air connections, based on the systems used by lucky2go and based on data in the GDS booking system or at the www.flightstats.com website.
- The scope of assistance available to the User via the Shield Protection service:
- After receiving information about the cancellation, delay or rescheduling of at least one of the lucky links connections, resulting in the inability to make the Trip, from a User entitled to take advantage of the Shield Protection, the User will be notified of any available alternative connections that will allow them to reach the Trip destination (hereinafter referred to as “Alternative Connection”).
- If a User misses an air connection as a result of a cancellation, delay or rescheduling of at least one of the lucky links connections included in a Trip, which results in the inability of the User to make the Trip, the User shall have the right to choose:
- An Alternative Connection available under the Shield Protection service can only be provided if the costs of the Alternative Connection that lucky2go would be subject to do not exceed the value greater than EUR 1,000 (the "Limit") expressed in currency in which the lucky links transaction is made.
- Should lucky2go fail to present an Alternative Connection up to the Limit, the User will be entitled to a refund in the amount of the total value of the air tickets purchased for the purpose of the lucky links Trip, instead of covering the costs of the Alternative Connection. The value of the refund does not include the value of services other than airline tickets purchased under the lucky links service (e.g. costs of purchased tours, hotel booking, etc.). In order to receive a refund of the amount spent on a lucky links ticket, the User must submit evidence confirming that the cancellation, delay or rescheduling of at least one of the lucky links connections prevented them from completing their Trip. This evidence shall be the basis for lucky2go to decide whether a refund can be issued.
- In instances where the stopover time caused by a cancellation, delay or rescheduling of at least lucky links connections exceeds 8 hours and the originally-planned Trip time, and partly or entirely takes place during the night hours (10.00 p.m.–06.00 a.m. of the local time in the area in which the Trip was interrupted), and the User decides to take advantage of the Alternative Connection option, the User shall have the right to:
- one overnight stay at a hotel provided by lucky2go or, in instances where that is impossible, reimbursement of costs of booking a room by the User, up to EUR 100 per person. Such reimbursement can only be issued if the User submits documentation from the hotel that would confirm that they made the payment and that the purchased service was implemented by the hotel.
- reimbursement of transport costs (according to the principle of 1 taxi - 4 people) on the route to/from the hotel/airport, in the amount of up to EUR 50, on the basis of documentation confirming that the payment was issued, and the transport service was implemented
- reimbursement of the costs of meals, up to EUR 25 per person, based on documentation confirming payments for meals.
- In exceptional cases, if the User is unable to contact lucky2go regarding the cancellation, delay or rescheduling of at least one of the lucky links connections, the User is entitled to purchase tickets that will enable them to travel to their destination on their own. Lucky2go, on the basis of the proof provided by the User that confirms the inability to contact lucky2go as well as the document that confirms the purchase of such tickets, will refund the value of these tickets up to the value of the tickets purchased as part of the Trip, but no more than up to the Limit. Lucky2go will examine all such exceptional cases on a case-by-case basis to determine whether it was indeed impossible for the User to notify lucky2go about the aforementioned issues. Such investigations will be carried out on the basis of all available information and data regarding Trip implementation, and it is on their basis that lucky2go will decide whether a reimbursement shall be issued.
- Any and all reimbursements of costs incurred and documented by the Users shall be made in accordance with the payment form chosen by the User during booking. In the case of reimbursements transferred directly to the User’s account indicated in the Booking System, the reimbursement amount established as part of the Shield Protection service shall be reduced by any amounts refunded directly to the User by the airlines at particular stages of the Shield Protection service, up to a maximum of the value of all tickets purchased for the purpose of the lucky links Trip.
- Refunds will be made on the terms and within time provided for by individual carriers, therefore the deadline for the refund under the Shield Protection service depends on the dates of these refunds by specific carriers whose services the User used as part of lucky links.
- The Shield Protection service shall not cover any other costs that may result from delays, cancellations or changes in schedules of at least one lucky links connection, which the User decides to incur as part of the Alternative Connection service, in particular, costs related to transport and meals, other than those described above.
- In order to use the Shield Protection, the User may be required to undertake certain actions, as directed by an lucky2go consultant. For example, they may be asked to report to a specific point at the airport, where they will be able to settle any formalities related to replacing their unused tickets and continuing the Trip. Failure to complete these actions shall prevent the User from taking advantage of the Shield Protectiond service.
- The Shield Protection service does not cover flight connections provided on the basis of a single flight ticket. The entities bearing full responsibility for all possible problems associated with such air services are the Carriers themselves. In such cases, the User is obliged to contact the Carrier or airlines which are responsible for the given Trip directly. It should be remembered that each Carrier may establish different fare conditions, as well as different terms and conditions for Trip implementation. Therefore, Users are obliged to familiarise themselves with such regulations each time. Lucky2go shall not be held liable for any inconveniences that the Users may incur due to their lack of compliance with the Carrier's fare conditions.
- If an alternative connection or other services specified in these Regulations (e.g. transport, meals) are provided by the airline or the airport, or in instances where the aforementioned entities are obliged to provide the User with such services, the Shield Protection protection shall not apply.
- Any loss of luggage that occurs due to reasons beyond the control of lucky2go shall not result in the inability of the User to make the Trip and shall not authorise the User to use the Shield Protection.
- Purchasing/changing a ticket that is part of a Trip covered by the Shield Protection service independently by the User prevents them from taking advantage of the Shield Protection service, with the exception of the provisions of paragraph II. 4.
- The Shield Protection service does not apply in instances where the cancellation, delay or rescheduling of at least one lucky links connections was a result of a strike organised by employees of airlines or any other services that are involved in servicing flights, as well as in the event of the airline going bankrupt, issues caused by force majeure, issues directly related to local and international warfare and acts of terror.
- Shield Protection does not apply when the Carrier performs mass cancellation of flights, however, the phenomenon of mass cancellation occurs when the Carrier cancels or plans to cancel at least 5 flights from the planned schedule in one day.
- The User is not entitled to take advantage of the Shield Protection service after their Trip has ended.
- In order to use the Shield Protection service, the User is required to cooperate with lucky2go, and in particular, submit all documents and information that the lucky2go consultants ask for at any stage of the Trip, as well as after the Trip itself has ended.
- Other services available via the Booking System or the Call Centre allow the Users to book additional services subject to fees indicated during the transaction process in the Booking System or via the Call Centre.
- Each paid service chosen by the User, described in this paragraph and available in the Booking System is an integral element of the service for which additional services have been booked.
- The lucky2go service package (further “Service Package”) is a non-refundable flat-fee service fee for at least one modification of the air ticket, which comprises its integral part, carried out via the Call Centre by the Users. By purchasing the Service Package service, the User is released from service fee charged by lucky2go as per the Table of service fees for additional services to be changed in an already purchased ticket. If according to the tariff terms and conditions the airline charges a fee for changes/returns/special services, the User shall pay the price for the service indicated by the airline.
- Online check-in is an additional, paid and non-refundable service that allows the User to check in in the electronic system of individual airlines for the purchased Air Ticket, if the transaction system allows for such possibility. As part of the online check-in service, the generated boarding card is sent to the e-mail address provided by the User during the booking process within the time limit enabling proper use of the transport service.. Some airlines may require that the User provide additional information that has not been provided in the booking process in order to check in. The User shall provide current contact details, such as e-mail address and telephone number, to enable contact, in particular immediately before the departure. Failure to supply contact details, providing data for online check-in less than 48 hours before the planned departure, supplying out-of-date or incomplete details, failure to answer phone calls from lucky2go or supplying incorrect details required for check-in may make it impossible to proceed with the online check-in and the User may be required to pay a charge defined by the airline or it may be impossible for them to depart. In case of making changes to the booking, by the Carrier or at the User's request, directly at the Carrier, while having purchased the online check-in service, the User is obliged to immediately inform lucky2go about the changes made. In the event of failure to provide this information, lucky2go will not be able to perform the online check-in service effectively. Given the above, lucky2go will not be liable for the ineffective performance of the online check-in service, including costs and resulting consequences
- If the flight is delayed or cancelled, as part of the analysis of data related to the User's flight, lucky2go will transfer information on the cooperating entity to obtain appropriate damages, i.e. AirHelp Germany GmbH, Boxhagener Strasse 18, 10245 Berlin, Germany, VAT ID: DE 320095320, which will take actions after an explicit acceptance by the User. At the same time, pursuant to Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council, lucky2go informs that the User is entitled to make claims and file requests directly with the airline operating a flight in order to receive a full (where applicable) compensation, to which a passenger may be entitled.
- AirHelp+ - an additional paid non-refundable service made available to any User making a reservation via the Reservation System or the Telephone Service Centre enabling assistance in obtaining compensation up to EUR 600 for a delayed, cancelled or overbooked flight and reimbursement up to EUR 6,000 for unplanned costs caused by a delayed flight (hotels, cabs, air tickets, meals) carried out on the conditions indicated by the service provider, i.e. AirHelp Germany GmbH, Boxhagener Strasse 18, 10245 Berlin, Germany, VAT ID: DE 320095320 specified in detail on https://www.airhelp.com/en/terms/.
