By paying by credit card, the customer instructs their credit institution at the time of the booking to inform Kamil Koç or a third party authorized by it, in case of a chargeback, of the customer’s name and complete address, so that Kamil Koç can assert its claims against the customer.

Passengers shall be given the opportunity to prove that the chargeback incurred lesser or no costs.

5.3 In the event of a cancellation, a voucher will be issued. This cancellation voucher is valid for 6 months and entitles the passenger to make a new booking within this period up to the value of the voucher. If the price of the new booking is more than the value of the voucher, the difference will need to be paid. If the price is lower, the difference will remain on the cancellation voucher and can be used for a different booking. These provisions may change in case of promotional offers that are valid for a limited time only.
