Is my holiday affected? Your right to a refund

Due to the coronavirus outbreak we are sorry to say that some holidays are cancelled as a result of travel restrictions, changes to travel schedules or closure of certain accommodations which may mean we are now unable to fulfil your holiday.

Refunds: If you have booked a package holiday and an element of your holiday is cancelled due to the impact of coronavirus, you will receive a full cash refund of all monies paid to us once we have ourselves received a refund from the supplier. We will offer alternative travel plans where possible. You are not entitled to any additional compensation, as the reason for the holiday not continuing is outside of our control.

Alterations: Alternatively, you can amend your holiday booking for a future date currently on sale or change to a new accommodation provider or travel route where relevant.
