Financial protection

All the tours we sell are protected by one of two schemes:

We hold an Air Travel Organiser's Licence (ATOL) issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (ATOL number 4817). All the flight-inclusive holidays* that we provide are financially protected by the ATOL scheme.

When you pay, you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please check to ensure everything you have booked is listed on it.

  • Please see our booking conditions for further information about financial protection and for further information on the ATOL Certificate.
  • *The flight inclusive holidays we arrange are ATOL protected providing they are made available in the UK. For further information, visit the ATOL website at

Not all holiday or travel services offered and sold by us will be protected by the ATOL scheme. Those package arrangements which are not protected by our ATOL are covered by ABTOT, the Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust.

This insurance means your money will be refunded or you will be returned to the starting point of your contracted arrangements if already abroad in the unlikely event of our being unable to provide your holiday due to our insolvency.

(For more details please see Section 12 of the Terms and Conditions.) In these instances you will not receive an ATOL certificate with your invoice.

If in doubt please ask us to confirm what protection will apply to your booking.
