Flights

Our contracted flights

As our travel arrangements for are made many months in advance, the flight details shown here, on the accommodation pages and on our website are provisional flight arrangements and approximate flying and transfer times. All flight timings for sun holidays and ski holidays are provisional and may change up to the point of departure.

Your flight numbers and timings will be confirmed when e- tickets are issued approximately 7 – 10 days before departure. The airline or likely airline which will operate your flight will be advised at the time of booking. Where we can only advise you of the likely airline at the time of booking, we will confirm this as soon as we are in a position to do so. Bookings are not accepted on the basis that they are conditional on particular flight timings or carriers and a change of flight timing or airline does not entitle you to change or cancel your holiday unless otherwise stated in our Booking Conditions.

On busy dates, it may be necessary to buy in extra seats which may be with different airlines and operate at different times to those shown in our brochure or on our website. Supplements may be payable for these flights. As transfers for these extra flights will often be operated in conjunction with our usual flights, there may be a short additional waiting time at the airport

Connecting flights

Please note that flight timings given at the time of booking are provisional and subject to change. Bookings are not accepted on the basis that they are conditional on particular flight timings. Guests with onward connections should allow plenty of time in the event of a schedule change or flight delay.

Details are available from your GP surgery or local travel clinic and from the National Travel Health Network and Centre www.nathnac.net Information on health abroad is also available on www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Travelhealth.

You should ensure that vaccinations or preventative measures such as malaria tablets are taken early enough (which may be a month or more prior to departure). At the time of publishing this brochure, no vaccinations were required for visiting any of the Mediterranean countries featured in this brochure.

For holidays in the EU/EEA you should obtain an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) prior to departure from www.ehic.org.uk The EHIC may entitle you to reduced cost, sometimes free, medical treatment in public hospitals and clinics while you’re in a European Economic Area, although restrictions apply. It must be noted however that the EHIC is not a substitute for travel insurance which must be taken out before departure.

Infants & pregnancy

Infants are not provided with a meal on the flight, however the cabin crew will be happy to heat up food you have brought with you. It may be possible to purchase a seat for infants, for details, please ask our reservations staff at the time of booking. Scheduled airlines make charges for infants, we will advise you of the full infant cost at the time of booking.

Pregnancy

Each airline has its own set of rules for passengers travelling when they are pregnant. Ladies who are more than 33 weeks pregnant on their return date cannot travel on our charter flights. After the 28th week of pregnancy, a medical certificate confirming ‘fitness to fly’ is required which must confirm the expected date of birth. This must be issued as close to your departure date from the UK as possible. Scheduled airlines have their own policies on pregnancy which will apply. Please check your insurance policy for any restrictions on cover provided.

Please check the airline you are travelling with for more information.

Passports

For holders of British or EU citizen passports, no visas are required for visiting any of the European countries featured in our brochure. Citizens of other countries should consult their embassies or consulates for applicable passport and visa requirements.

For British Citizens, adults require a ten year British passport for all the countries we operate to and children a five year British passport. A British passport presently takes approximately 3 to 6 weeks to obtain. If you are 16 or over and haven’t yet got a passport, you should apply for one at least 6 weeks before your holiday. The UK Passport Service has to confirm your identity before issuing your first passport and will ask you to attend an interview in order to do this. Full details are available by either visiting their website www.gov.uk/browse/abroad/passports or telephoning the passport office on 0300 222 0000.

If you are not a British citizen or hold a non British passport, you must check passport and visa requirements with the embassy or consulate of the country(ies) to or through which you are intending to travel.

Please also check the validity of your passport, as some countries require passports to be valid for a certain length of time, which may be up to 6 months, after the end of your holiday arrangements. If you are unsure, please contact the appropriate embassy or consulate of the country you are travelling to. It is the party leader’s responsibility to ensure that all members of the party are in possession of all travel and other documents necessary for your holiday. We cannot be held responsible if guests are prevented from travelling or re-entering the UK due to the lack of valid passports or visas.

The Foreign Office publishes regularly updated travel information on its website www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice which you are recommended to consult before booking and in good time before departure.
