In the event that a complaint can be resolved on the spot and the traveler has not complained of irregularities on the spot, it is understood that the traveler agrees with the service and they have thereby lost the right to log a complaint later with the request to reduce the cost of the service or pay damages . Backpack will not consider the complaint if the traveler has not provided a copy of the written complaint they have filed on the spot. If there is no improvement after the complaint, the traveler must ask for a confirmation that the service was not provided or not provided in the manner agreed upon in the contract. The confirmation must be enclosed with the written complaint.

While the decision process is ongoing, and no later than 14, i.e. 28 days after the complaint has been made, the traveler irrevocably waives the mediation of any other person, arbitration of UHPA or other institutions, as well as providing information to the media.
