We recommend that every person travelling takes out travel insurance immediately after booking a holiday. If you are travelling on a cruise or organised tour, your tour operator will ask us for your travel insurance information before they will send out any tickets.
Our recommended travel insurance provider is Holiday Extras
If you are over 75 or have medical conditions, please contact us and we will be able to recommend a reliable Travel Insurance Provider that is able to tailor a policy to your needs.
Once we have received your tickets and checked them thoroughly we will invite you to come into the office at your convenience so that we can go through your travel arrangements and answer any questions you may have. This will normally be around 2-3 weeks before travel. Alternatively, we can arrange for your tickets to be posted to you.
We recommend leaving plenty of time to get to the airport to allow for any unexpected delays. If you are travelling on a long haul flight (5 hours or more) we recommend arriving at the airport 3 hours before your flight is due to depart. If you are flying on a short-haul flight (less than 5 hours) you will need to arrive at the airport 2 hours before your flight.
If you have an early morning flight why not book an airport hotel to avoid any stress! See Holiday Extras
The majority of airlines will allow you to keep your child’s pushchair until you board the aircraft. The ground handlers will ensure that it then goes into the hold and will be available to collect after your flight, either just outside the aircraft door or at baggage claim.
Should there be any problems whilst on your holiday, please contact the reception at your hotel first. Alternatively, you can contact the representative at your destination, their contact number will be stated on your tickets or vouchers.
