These terms and conditions (the “Agreement”) describe what you are legally entitled to expect from us when you purchase travel related services through us, in addition to your obligations as a customer.

Our Agreement With You
Products and Suppliers
We sell a variety of travel related products from different suppliers and service providers (“Suppliers”). Each Supplier has its own terms and condition that are applicable to your particular arrangements in addition to our general terms and conditions, and you should make sure you understand them. Certain content found on our website are owned or licensed by us or our Suppliers, your use of which may be subject to further conditions. Our website, which is referred throughout this Agreement, can be found at www.platinumexperience.co.uk.
Platinum Experience is acting as intermediary or a “Booking Agent” for products and services that are not directly supplied by us (e.g. hotel accommodations, meals, tours, etc.). We are not a co-vendor of such products and services. You will be entering into a separate contract with such Suppliers in connection with such products and services. In the case of event tickets and transportation to and from a venue, we are acting as the supplier and your contract is with Platinum Experience.
Deposits and Payment
Any deposits from you are non-refundable. Payment of a deposit enables us to hold a reservation for you but does not guarantee the price if the full amount payable is not paid by the date we stipulate. We will advise you of the date that full payment is required when you are making your initial booking. Upon your provision of your payment information, you are authorising us to make the payment arrangements with the corresponding Suppliers.
We reserve the right to refuse personal checks as a method of payment.
We will send you a confirmation e-mail and details of your itinerary in advance of your event and we will also send you a pack by registered mail, to the address you confirmed on your booking, with your itinerary and tickets to your show or event in advance of your event taking place. If special arrangements are required for delivery of your packages please inform us well in advance of your event taking place. We reserve the right to charge an administration fee for sending your pack by registered mail.
Cancellations and Changes
If you need to cancel your booking more than two months in advance, we will endeavour to refund you the amount of your payment less a 20% administration fee. If you need to cancel or change your booking with less than two months’ notice, we do not guarantee that any refund will apply as we may have committed to making payments on your behalf to other service providers.
If a show or an event you have booked cancels at more than one months’ notice, we will refund you the full amount of your package less a 10% fee. Should a show cancel, and you wish to proceed with the remainder of your package we will refund you the cost of your event ticket.
If a show or an event you have booked cancels at less than one months’ notice, we will refund you the cost, however we cannot guarantee a full refund on the remainder of your package as we may have made payments to other service providers on your behalf. An administration fee of 10% will also apply in this case. Should a show cancel, and you wish to proceed with the remainder of your package we will refund you the cost of your event ticket.
An administration fee will apply to any name or itinerary changes, please contact us at least one month in advance if you wish to make any changes to your booking.
If you are not admitted entry to an event by the event security, your ticket will be non-refundable.
When booking a corporate package, if you are unhappy about any of the services provided at the venue and you require a refund we will engage with the venue on your behalf.
