All Travel Department holidays are ATOL protected (license 9373). ATOL is a financial protection scheme for UK tour operators operated by the CAA, designed to protect you. For more information visit www.caa.co.uk/atol-protection
Travel Department is a member of AITO, the Specialist Travel Association. AITO checks that all its members are professionals, so you don’t have to, and all AITO members sign up to a Quality Charter ensuring the highest standards.
The UK is now in a transition period which will last until 31 December 2020. During this time, everything will remain the same and you can continue to travel without any changes at all.
Flights will still operate as normal, there will be no additional visa requirements, valid passports can still be used and you do not need to have six months left on your passport to travel to the EU. (Your passport does need to be valid for the whole of your trip as before.) Furthermore your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will still continue to be valid in this period, though we do strongly recommend that you have appropriate travel insurance (as before) as there are limitations to the EHIC.
Most importantly of all, your booking with Travel Department is fully ATOL protected so in the unlikely event that we are unable to operate your holiday as planned, you will be entitled to a full refund.
What’s more, whether the pound rises or falls, with our no surcharge guarantee you can be sure that once you have booked your holidays, the price you pay will stay the same.
