Information we collect
We collect information about you when you provide it to us, when you use our services. This will include contact details so that we may provide information to you and create accurate quotes.

Firstly, to provide you with holiday quotes, secondly, to make holiday bookings for you based on your requirements, and thirdly, for marketing purposes. We like to keep you updated about the services we offer, future events we hold and special offers that we think you’ll be interested in.  

How we process this 

  • Collecting your data – we only collect data when you provide it to us. 

  • Holding your data – we hold your contact details files locked with passwords or keys.  

  • Disclosing your data – the only data we disclose is data that is required to make a holiday booking. 

  • Deleting your data – we do not store passport copies for longer than required. We delete contact details when requested.  

 

Transfer of data 

  • We will never share your data with other companies for marketing purposes. Nor will we sell or rent your data to third parties.  

 

  • No third parties have access to your personal data unless the law allows them to do so.
