Baba’s Flight Club is open to all members aged 18 and over. Baba’s Flight Club reserves the right to refuse admission on Travel Club trips at its discretion.
Full payment is required at the time of booking, or as applicable, a deposit followed by two/three further instalments, per your chosen payment plan. Payment must be made online via the link or bank account details provided and members undertake to ensure an invoice is provided for each payment made within 10 business days.
For overseas trips by application once selected you will receive an offer of acceptance by email including a deadline for full payment. If payment is not paid when due, Baba’s Flight Club will be entitled to cancel the booking without notice.
We believe that safety and enjoyment are equally important when travelling with Baba’s Flight Club. It is therefore one of our terms and conditions of booking that you have adequate travel insurance in place before you travel; cover must include emergency medical expenses, personal accident and repatriation. In addition, we strongly recommend that you include baggage, personal liability and cancellation cover.
It is wholly your responsibility to obtain adequate Travel Insurance for the dates of your trip. Baba’s Flight Club will not provide this for you.
As an EU national, if you are suddenly taken ill or have an accident during a temporary visit to any EU country you can get free or reduced-cost healthcare (be aware each country has its own rules). A European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), available online at www.ehic.org.uk, facilitates access to healthcare in the EU and speeds up the reimbursement of costs.
For non-EU members, you are advised to contact your country’s embassy in the UK for advice
We would recommend you obtain a copy of the Department of Health leaflet T4 (traveller’s guide to health) and where relevant, see your doctor to ensure that you are not travelling against medical advice.
As stated in point 4, it is the traveller’s responsibility to arrange insurance for any medical/repatriation needs you may have while on a Baba’s Flight Club trip. You must take out an insurance policy before you travel.
6. Departure point/time
The majority of Baba’s Flight Club trips depart from airports in and around Greater London.
It is your responsibility to leave ample time for your journey to the departure point. The time stated on your e-ticket is the time of departure; you should ensure you are at the departure point, in the case of all flights, AT LEAST two hours prior to departure. We cannot refund or rebook you for trips that are missed if you fail to arrive on time.
7. Travel Documentation
You are responsible for ensuring that you are in possession of the required travel documentation such as visas and passports and that they are valid and effective for all countries that you intend to visit. We cannot be held responsible for expenses incurred if travel documentation does not meet the required criteria. If you are in doubt, please contact the relevant embassy or consulate. A valid passport is required for all journeys between countries for all nationalities.
UK & EU Citizens
Citizens of the European Union do not require visas for travel within other European Union states, and rarely require visas for other European destinations. However, participants must check with the relevant embassy before travelling. Requirements may change and you must check the up-to-date position in good time before departure.
All other Nationalities
Citizens of other countries should carefully check requirements for passports, visas and other documentation required for travel to your destination. Information can be found from the relevant embassy.
Baba’s Flight Club is unable to make refunds to participants unable to travel through failure to comply with immigration regulations. You should apply for your visa at the earliest opportunity as it can be a slow process. Baba’s Flight Club can provide a letter of information (detailing flights, accommodation, payment and support) for your visa application, once you have paid in full for the trip.
For all trips we ask that you bring valid member ID (once issued) as we have often booked reduced price tickets and excursions on this basis. If you fail to bring valid member ID you will be liable for any difference in ticket prices.
8. Refund & Cancellation policy
Full payment for the total amount due under the selected price plan is due at the time of booking. Baba’s Flight Club will not be liable for any mistakes in selecting a payment plan and once selected, it will not be possible to change plans, unless at the discretion of the Travel Co-ordinator. All Flight Club Trip Tickets are: FULLY RESTRICTED / NON-REFUNDABLE / NON-CHANGEABLE / NON-TRANSFERABLE / NON-EXCHANGEABLE / NO-SHOW PENALTIES APPLY.

If your ticket is resold you will be reimbursed for the full amount of the trip (minus, the non-refundable deposit, minus up to 50% of the first installment, a minimum of GBP50 to cover any name-change /administration fee imposed by the airline/ operator which is out of the control of the Travel Club), minus a GBP20 service charge. Any waiver of the service charge will be at the sole discretion of Baba’s Flight Club. The sooner you inform us that you cannot travel, the more likely it is that we can re-sell your ticket. Tickets cannot be re-sold by members, they must be returned to Baba’s Flight Club for re-selling. Any ticket sold or passed on by the original purchaser to another person will be invalid and cannot be used for travel. If you fail to inform us in advance (at least 20 working days’ notice) that you cannot travel and/or No-Show on the trip and/or cancel last minute (less than 20 working days prior to departure) – no refund will be due and you will be subjected to a fine and/or cancellation penalties equivalent to up to 20 percent of the full price trip per your selected payment plan. You may also be blacklisted from future trips with Baba’s Flight Club.
In the unlikely event your trip or excursion is cancelled by Baba’s Flight Club or one of our partners due to unusual or unforeseen circumstance beyond our control, then we will refund you the price paid for the ticket, and your non-refundable deposit may be transferred onto another trip or excursion of equal cost but you will not be entitled to any compensation for the loss of the tour.
9. Variation of brochure
