2.4 Reservation requests can only be accepted between 1 month and 48 hours prior to your flight time. Requests received outside of this time frame may be fulfilled at our discretion.
2.5 Heathrow retailers and the products they offer have individual reservation limits and their own individual terms of reservation. Our Customer Service team will be able to advise on specific circumstances.
3 PURCHASING YOUR GOODS
3.1 Following confirmation of your reservation, on the day of your travel, or where you have registered on the day and there is a Personal Shopper available, you will be met and escorted to the Lounge by your Personal Shopper. All purchases of goods will be made in the Lounge.
3.2 All sales will be concluded at the Lounge with your Personal Shopper and all sales contracts will be between you and the retailer. These sale contracts will be governed by the “Personal Shopper Terms and Conditions of Sale” and any terms and conditions of the relevant retailer, which will be set out in the confirmation email you receive before making payment.
3.3 Heathrow allows third party retailers to list and sell through the Service. Whilst Heathrow helps facilitate purchases of goods that are carried out using the Service, Heathrow and its subcontractors are not the seller of the retailer’s goods. Heathrow and its subcontractors accept no liability to you with regard to the sale of goods by retailers, the fulfilment of the reservation, or in connection with the products being reserved and/or sold except as set out in the Heathrow Shopper Promise: http://www.heathrowairport.com/shop,-eat,-relax-and-enjoy/refund-policy.
3.4 Should you request (a) a product that requires customisation; (b)payment by cash or (c) a VAT receipt of sale, you will be escorted to the relevant store to complete the transaction for the items where this is applicable. If your attempt to pay by card should fail twice for any reason, then we will not allow any further card changes/attempts, however you will have the option to complete the transaction at the relevant store. Should a store visit take more time than available before your flight, we will be unable to complete the sale for these items. Please note that payment by cheque is not accepted as part of this service.
3.5 On rare occasions, a confirmed reservation may not be available for purchase at the time of travel. Whilst we will make every effort to inform you of this in advance, Heathrow does not accept liability for reservation requests unfulfilled by retailers.
4.1 All prices shown include any VAT and duties payable. On occasion, the prices payable in respect of goods advertised on Heathrow Boutique may differ from those prices payable at the same time in retail stores at Heathrow. In the event that in-store prices differ from those on Heathrow Boutique, the Customer Service team will endeavour to contact you to confirm the price payable on your day of travel.
4.2 Although we endeavour to ensure that all pricing information on Heathrow Boutique is accurate, occasionally an error may occur and goods may be mispriced. If we discover a pricing error we will, at our discretion, either contact you to ask whether you wish to continue with the reservation request at the correct price or notify you that we have cancelled your request. Retailers will not be obliged to supply goods through the Service at the incorrect price.
5 INFORMATION RELATING TO YOUR PURCHASE
The retailer is under an obligation to provide certain information to you (e.g price and characteristics of goods, return and cancellation policies) before you are bound by any sales contract. This information will be provided to you by email before you make payment. By registering for the Service, you confirm that you are happy to be provided all relevant information by email rather than in paper form.
In addition to your statutory rights and your contractual rights with the retailer, most goods purchased at Heathrow are covered by the Heathrow Shopper Promise. For full details please visit: http://www.heathrow.com/shops-and-restaurants/refund-policy.
