What is ATOL protection?

ATOL protection means that customers have financial security and that if we, or one of our travel suppliers, has a problem then customers won’t lose money paid for a package holiday, and are not stranded in a foreign country.

When am I covered?

All of our flight-inclusive package holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. But ATOL protection does not apply to all holidays and travel services listed on this website. This website 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.
