Terms and conditions

Once you have paid your initial payment of £30pp, if you then cancel before the balance of the standard deposit has been paid in full (the standard deposit being the full flight cost, together with any ancillaries selected such as baggage, plus £1pp from the hotel cost and any insurance premiums you have selected on booking), you will still be liable to pay the balance of the standard deposit in addition to any cancellation charges imposed by the applicable supplier(s) of your travel arrangements plus our cancellation administration fee – please see our terms and conditions for full details. Please also see Our CEO's Promise for full terms.

When paying in instalments, please note we make a small charge for each payment (£4.95 per payment), irrespective of the payment card type. These charges are non-refundable.
