2.2 Carriage performed pursuant to these Member Conditions shall be subject to the Operator’s Terms and, where applicable, the Operator’s Conditions of Carriage. Members hereby acknowledge and accept that Victor shall have no liability whatsoever with respect to the operation of the Itinerary or the Aircraft and that any claims arising out of the operation of the Itinerary or Aircraft must be directed to the Operator.

2.3 Members shall be solely responsible for arriving at the specified check-in point at the departure airport in sufficient time and complying with the Operator’s Terms and Conditions of Carriage, including but not limited to luggage restrictions (as further described in the “Frequently Asked Questions” section of Victor’s website), the carriage of pets and behaviour onboard aircraft. In the event that a Member fails to arrive in sufficient time in order to participate in an Itinerary or is denied boarding on account of his failure to comply with the Operator’s Terms and/or Conditions of Carriage, Victor shall be under no liability whatsoever to the Member, nor shall it be under any obligation to make alternative travel arrangements for the Member. Should the Member request Victor’s assistance with alternative travel arrangements, the Member will be liable to pay such additional charges as may be agreed with Victor in respect of such alternative arrangements.

2.4 Members and passengers are responsible for obtaining all required travel documents and visas and for complying with all laws, regulations, orders, demands and travel requirements of countries to be flown from, into or through which they transit. Victor will not be liable for any consequences resulting from failure to obtain such documents or visas or to comply with such laws, regulations, orders, demands, requirements, rules or instructions. Members and passengers should comply with Government travel requirements and present exit, entry and other required documents in sufficient time to complete departure procedures.

2.5 For the avoidance of doubt, Victor is not a “contracting carrier” for the purposes of the Montreal Convention 1999.

2.6 Members acknowledge that smoking is prohibited on all Aircraft and a Member shall indemnify Victor and other Members against any and all claims or liabilities arising out that Member’s failure to comply with this clause 2.6.

2.7 Members accept full responsibility for the conduct of all Passengers for whom they have purchased seats, as confirmed in the Booking Confirmation. The Member acknowledges that in respect of the contract of carriage by air of each Passenger they act as the Passenger’s agent. All liabilities in relation to the carriage by air of Passengers and their baggage shall be governed by the conditions of carriage of the Operator as set out in the Operator’s Terms. The Member shall ensure that each of its Passengers receives proper notice of the carrier liability provisions and these Member Terms and has received and agreed to the terms and conditions of carriage set out in the Operator’s Terms prior to a booking being made through the Victor Programme. Members acknowledge and agree that Members and Members’ Passengers are jointly and severally liable for any and all damages and in the event of any default by a Member under these Member Terms, Victor reserves any and all rights available at law to seek recourse against Members’ Passenger(s).

2.8 Members acknowledge that the maximum number, weight and dimensions for both carry on and hold baggage will be stipulated in the “frequently asked questions” on the Victor website.

2.9 Victor may in its absolute discretion revoke any Member’s membership with immediate effect.

2.10 Where an Operator makes Victor aware of changes to an Itinerary (including as regards departure time(s)), Victor shall endeavour to communicate such changes to the relevant Member(s) through the “my Victor booking summary” on the Victor website and/or by way of email.

2.11 In the event that a Member fails to take a flight or flights forming part of an Itinerary for which he holds a Booking Confirmation the Member shall not be entitled to any refund from Victor in respect of monies paid for the Itinerary concerned, regardless of the reason for the failure to take the applicable flight(s).

2.12 In the event that an Aircraft is diverted from landing at its intended destination or is forced to return to base for reasons beyond the reasonable control of the Operator, Victor shall use its reasonable endeavours to provide assistance to Members travelling on the Aircraft as regards the sourcing of alternative means of transport for the completion of their Itinerary. For the avoidance of doubt, the costs of such alternative transportation are to be paid directly by the Member(s) concerned to such third party provider(s) of the alternative means of transport, and any contract for such carriage will be concluded directly between the Member(s) and such third party. Members acknowledge that while Victor may provide assistance to Members in arranging alternative means of transport, under no circumstances will Victor act as agent or as principal in the provision of such alternative transport.

2.13 In the event that

2.13.1 an Aircraft is detained (whether lawfully or otherwise) by any third party (including but not limited to detention by any aviation or airport authority, overflight authority or by way of lien or requisition for hire or otherwise) whereby making completion of the Itinerary impossible; or

2.13.2 the Operator or the relevant Aircraft has an administrator, receiver, trustee or other similar person acting on behalf of a lawful authority, appointed over all or part of its assets or business and as a result the Operator is unable to perform the Itinerary at the same cost; or

2.13.3 the Operator becomes insolvent, enters into voluntary liquidation, or is compulsorily wound up;

Victor shall use its reasonable endeavours to source an alternative Operator who is able to operate the Itinerary (or remaining parts thereof) at a similar cost.

2.14 In the event that an alternative Operator is sourced for the provision of the Itinerary pursuant to clause 2.13, Victor shall make details of such alternative arrangements available to those Member(s) holding a Booking Confirmation for the applicable Itinerary. Such Members shall be entitled to accept or decline the offer of such alternative arrangements. Where a Member declines such an offer, he is entitled to a refund from Victor of all funds paid in relation to the Itinerary except as regards monies which have already been paid to the Operator, for which the Member’s recourse lies with the Operator only.

2.15 Where an offer of alternative transport arrangements is accepted pursuant to clause 2.14, the Member(s) accepting such arrangements shall be liable (in equal proportion) for any costs over and above the original total cost for the operation of the Itinerary prior to the event(s) described in clause 2.13.

2.16 When a booking under these Member Conditions has been initiated through an Authorised Agent, all communications, the issue of documents and the payment and receipt of funds in respect of that booking shall be conducted through the Authorised Agent acting as agent for the relevant Member or prospective Member (as the case may be). Victor will only enter into direct communications in respect of such a booking with the relevant Member or prospective Member where specifically requested to do.

3.1.2 Acceptance of the Charter Price is deemed to have occurred upon the receipt by Victor of a deposit of no less than 30% (thirty percent) of the Charter Price or any other deposit as may be required by the relevant Operator whichever is the greater. For the avoidance of any doubt, in the event where a Flight Initiator submits an aircraft charter request through Victor’s website for an Itinerary commencing less than 30 (thirty) days from the date of the request, 100% of the Charter Price is due before Victor shall issue a Booking Confirmation in respect of the Itinerary.
