All the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. Please read these booking conditions for further information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to: www.atol.org.uk/ATOLcertificate
When you buy an ATOL protected flight or flight inclusive holiday from us you will receive an ATOL Certificate. This lists what is financially protected, where you can get information on what this means for you and who to contact if things go wrong.
We, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL Certificate, will provide you with the services listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative). In some cases, where neither we nor the supplier are able to do so for reasons of insolvency, an alternative ATOL holder may provide you with the services you have bought or a suitable alternative (at no extra cost to you). You agree to accept that in those circumstances the alternative ATOL holder will perform those obligations and you agree to pay any money outstanding to be paid by you under your contract to that alternative ATOL holder. However, you also agree that in some cases it will not be possible to appoint an alternative ATOL holder, in which case you will be entitled to make a claim under the ATOL scheme (or your credit card issuer where applicable).
If we, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL certificate, are unable to provide the services listed (or a suitable alternative, through an alternative ATOL holder or otherwise) for reasons of insolvency, the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust may make a payment to (or confer a benefit on) you under the ATOL scheme. You agree that in return for such a payment or benefit you assign absolutely to those Trustees any claims which you have or may have arising out of or relating to the non-provision of the services, including any claim against us, the travel agent (or your credit card issuer where applicable). You also agree that any such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if that other body has paid sums you have claimed under the ATOL scheme.
For more information please see our Terms & Conditions.
Do I need travel insurance?
We would always strongly advise that you take out a comprehensive travel policy to cover you before and after your trip.
What is the best way to carry money?
Most hotels accept cash, debit cards and credit cards. To be secure we would recommend that you only carry a small amount of cash for essentials and using your card where you can.
Can I add dietary or medical requests?
Special requests can always be added to your booking. Requests can be given at the time of booking or you can contact us after with them. Requests are not always guaranteed but we will try our best to accommodate them.
What time will check in/out be? Can I request an early check in?
Check in/out times vary depending on the policy of the property you are staying at and will be advised at the time of your booking. We can request early check ins, but it will not be guaranteed unless the property confirms this. On some occasions you can pay an extra fee for this.
I would like to know what facilities the property has (e.g., fridge to store medication, dry cleaning / laundry service, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, towels, toiletries).
We can check with the property before your booking confirmation to see if certain facilities are available. Please note that certain facilities, as for example dry cleaning / laundry service, might be available at an extra fee.
What luggage should I bring and are there any restrictions?
This will depend on the holiday you have booked and if any transport is included it will depend on the transport carrier you will be using; we will advise this at the time of booking.
Can you provide transfers?
We can arrange transfers for you, which will incur an extra fee.
Will the property have a taxi service?
We can check this with the property before we confirm your booking.
Will I need vaccinations?
Please check with your GP for advice on vaccinations and if you are up to date.
