ATOL Protection extends primarily to customers who book and pay in the United Kingdom. Some of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. ATOL protection does not apply to all holidays and travel services listed on this website. This website and all social media accounts will provide you with information on the protection that applies in the case of each holiday and travel service offered before you make your booking.
If you do not receive an ATOL certificate, then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL
certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. 

 

 

 

The air holidays and flights shown are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority.

DATA PROTECTION POLICY
In order to process your booking and to ensure that your travel arrangements run smoothly and meet your requirements we need to use the information you provide such as name, address, any special needs/dietary requirements etc.

We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We must pass the information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements such as your tour operator, airlines, hotels, transport companies etc. The information may also be provided to security or credit checking companies, public authorities such as customs/immigration if required by them, or as required by law.

Additionally, where your holiday is outside the European Economic Area (EEA), controls on data protection in your destination may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country. We will not however, pass any information onto any person not responsible for part of your travel arrangements. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary/religious requirements. (If we cannot pass this information to the relevant suppliers, whether in the EEA or not, we cannot provide your booking. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons.)

Usually your tour operator or other principal will pass this information onto their suppliers once we have provided it to them. The tour operator or other principal’s use of your information is subject to their policy, both in respect of your booking and any future marketing, and is their responsibility. Please ask either us or them for a copy of this if you would like to see it.

You are entitled to a copy of your information held by us. If you would like to see this please contact us. [We may make a small charge for providing this to you].
