In cases where something other than the price is materially misstated, we offer the customer the opportunity to exchange the product for a similar one (if available), or we shall negotiate a fair compensation with the customer. 

In case of possible incorrect price (if the product is sold accidentally at too low rates), the customer is offered either a full refund or the opportunity to pay the difference between the right price and the price paid and keep the booking valid. 

Some airlines will add a separate fee in booking phase 2 when the flight total price for these airlines is not shown in search results. The total cost will only be shown in the page of booking phase 2 where also this potential additional payment is specified. 

Hotel services and classification
Please note that the hotels booked by us for you are not exclusive to Top 10. We are not responsible for any limitation in facilities because of other hotel guests or their activities.

Hotel star rating/classification is used to describe the general standard and services of a hotel, level of service, quality of food, and the number of amenities and facilities in a hotel. The classification methods vary highly from supplier to supplier and country by country, and star rating is intended for guidance only. The star rating is not a service quality guarantee by the travel agency. 

Top 10 does not take responsibility for hotel content (including images, facility listings, etc.) displayed on our website. Hotels may change facilities and property features without prior notice to Top 10 and it is the customers’ responsibility to confirm facilities directly with the hotel at the time of travel.

Clause 10: Passport, visa and vaccination requirements for your trip

It is important that you check the passport and visa regulations as well as all the vaccination requirements of the country of destination (and transit!) as early as possible because the processing of the required documents may take some time. In principle, you should ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months after your journey because this is now a mandatory requirement in many countries around the world. Top 10 Matkatarjoukset assumes no responsibility for any financial consequences if you have not complied with these guidelines.

On the site you will also find other useful information concerning, inter alia, local practices, transport and entry.

Clause 11: Pregnancy and small children 

Some airlines and cruise lines prohibit travelling for women who are in their 28th week or more in pregnancy. Gestation period is calculated according to the return date. Pregnancy week-limits may differ between different companies. It is the customer's responsibility to check the special conditions set by the airline and/or cruise line concerning pregnancy and the health status, and also to discuss with her doctor. 

Infants must be at least 6 weeks to travel on an airplane, and they must travel in an adult's lap. Make clear about the airline babies' specific terms and conditions before booking. Generally, children over 2 years must have their own seat. Most airlines offer a special baby-price for children aged under 2. 2 to 11 years are generally considered children.
