A SWINGAROUND Package means a pre-arranged combination of at least two (2) of the following components:
- Air Transportation
- Other services, e.g., land transfers, sightseeing tours, theater tickets, etc.
A SWINGAROUND Package does not include any travel insurance but it may be purchased separately. As provided in paragraph 6.3 below, we strongly recommend that you take travel insurance for your trip.
Please note that Philippine Airlines (PAL) provides air transportation. The other components of the SWINGAROUND Package such as accommodation, land transfers, sightseeing tours, theater tickets, etc. are provided by other service providers, that is, other hotel/resort/tour operators. Accordingly, in availing of a SWINGAROUND Package, you understand and agree that PAL is only coordinating the arrangements for other components of the SWINGAROUND Package with other hotel/resort/tour operators and that PAL shall not be liable for failure on their part to provide their service.
Please note that changes to a booking of a SWINGAROUND Package are not allowed.
2. Separability of Terms and Conditions of Service Providers/Operators
Consistent with paragraph 1.2 above, air transportation provided by PAL is subject to PAL’s General Conditions of Carriage (GCOC) a copy of which is available in www.philippineairlines.com and PAL ticket offices. In availing of a SWINGAROUND Package, you confirm that you have read PAL’s GCOC and that you agree thereto.
Concerns relating to your air transportation should be directed to PAL.
In cases of changes in flight schedules for reasons within PAL’s control, PAL shall endeavor to notify you of such adjustments and make arrangements for a similar or comparable flight schedule and/or Land Arrangements, if applicable. Similar or comparable Land Arrangements shall mean arrangements of substantially equivalent value. In case no similar or comparable Land Arrangements is available or even if available, you will not be able to agree or accommodate the adjustments, PAL’s obligation shall be to refund the amount corresponding to the service/s you did not avail of in accordance with PAL’s refund policy, and PAL shall not be liable for any and all actual, incidental or consequential damages resulting to your non-agreement to PAL’s offered similar or comparable Land Arrangements.
Likewise consistent with paragraph 1.2 above, other hotel/resort/tour operators who provide the other components of the SWINGAROUND Package have their own terms and conditions. You are encouraged to contact the concerned hotel/resort/tour operators. In availing of a SWINGAROUND Package, you confirm that you have read the terms and conditions of the hotel/resort/tour operators concerned and that you agree thereto. PAL is not in any way liable for their terms and conditions nor shall PAL be liable for failure or refusal of the hotel/resort/tour operators to provide the service on account of their respective terms and conditions or otherwise.
You must comply with the terms and conditions of the hotel, resort, tour operator, land and sea transport operator, helicopter transport operator, and others engaged in carrying out the tour services and shall personally negotiate and be accountable for other arrangements not covered by the SWINGAROUND PACKAGE.
