Upon completion or selection by you of all required products and/or services, the SpeedyTravel website will provide you with a quote and availability guide for the products and services selected.
      2. If you wish to acquire the travel products or services selected then, upon completion by you of all required details, you must accept the quote and a binding agreement will be created, with a corresponding Speedy Travel Ltd booking number assigned.

    9. Where a transaction is entered into between Speedy Travel Ltd and you via the SpeedyTravel website, a booking number will be issued by Speedy Travel Ltd.
