ATOL protection extends primarily to customers who book and pay in the United Kingdom.

Our receipt of a deposit and the lodging of a booking form does not constitute confirmation of the booking. Confirmation, or otherwise, is given separately in a form of an ATOL receipt for flight inclusive bookings.
Passengers should assume that all bookings made are sold on a totally non-refundable basis, unless otherwise advised by us. All cancellations by a client must be in writing. If a client cancels a booking the deposit will be retained by us as fee to cover expenses, but clients are liable for all expenses, and liabilities, incurred by us if these exceed the deposit.
