From 25 May 2018 onwards, you and your personal data will be protected by the EU general Data Protection Regulation (known as GDPR)

What do we do with your personal information?

In order to process your booking and to ensure that your travel arrangements run smoothly and meet your requirements we need to use the information you provide such as name, address, email address, any special needs/dietary requirements, passport information etc. The personal data we collect may include credit/debit card or other payment information.

You may provide personal data to us in various ways. This may be provided over the telephone, online through our website or in e mails. Additionally, in order to allow you to experience a more personalised service when you visit our website or by telephone conversation, we may find out about your interests.

We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We must pass the information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements such as your tour operator, airlines, hotels, transport companies, public authorities such as customs/immigration if required by them, or as required by law.

Please do not provide your personal data to us if you are not happy for us to process this information in accordance with this privacy policy.

Additionally, where your holiday is outside the European Economic Area (EEA), controls on data protection in your destination may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country. We will not however, pass any information onto any person not responsible for part of your travel arrangements. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary/religious requirements. (If we cannot add this information to the relevant suppliers, whether in the EEA or not, we cannot provide your booking. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons.)

Usually your tour operator or other principal will pass this information onto their suppliers once we have provided it to them. The tour operator or other principal’s use of your information is subject to their policy, both in respect of your booking and any future marketing, and is their responsibility. Please ask either us or them for a copy of this if you would like to see it. Our data controller is Mike Coles.


We do not send out regular marketing communications but occasionally may have details of special

offers or products which we may think to be of interest to you. By accepting this Privacy Policy you accept that we may contact you in this respect. Unless you expressly ask not to be contacted in this way when you make your booking with us. If you do not wish to receive such approaches in the future, please contact and advise Mike Coles accordingly, go to our contact page.
