If UK government rules mean you need to quarantine on return, our refunds, cancellation and amendments policy will depend on what type of holiday you've booked.

All holidays also include a hand luggage allowance subject to the airlines standard allowances.
On some holidays we can do this for you but it must be done before you make your booking. You cannot do this online. Please give us a call on 0330 043 0330 and we'll give you a quote for your holiday that doesn't include luggage - we can then book it there and then for you and get you one step closer to your well deserved holiday.

As part of our booking conditions it is a requirement that you take out adequate travel insurance for your holiday. This can cover you and your party against the cost of cancellation and assistance (repatriation) should you need to return home due to an accident or illness. It’s also essential when making a claim for lost or stolen valuables and covers you if you’re planning any activities.
If you'd like us to check a certain hotel or recommend hotels for you - please give us a call on 0330 043 0330 or drop us a message on Live Chat. We're here to help and we'll make sure everything is right for you before you book your well earned holiday.
This is a small fee imposed by some countries and cities which is used to finance and maintain local facilities. The amount will vary depending on where you’re travelling to and you’ll be asked to pay in full when you arrive at your accommodation. Please be aware that you’re wholly responsible for covering these taxes and overseas governments may make changes at short notice, so it’s a good idea to check before you travel.
Some hotels (mainly in the USA) charge a resort fee for additional services such as WiFi. These resort fees are compulsory and cannot be removed from your holiday. You'll need to pay for these when you check in to your hotel. We'll let you know how much the resort fee is before you go and it'll be detailed as part of the booking journey online or we'll let you know when booking with our call centre.
We're starting small with resort escorts (holiday reps) in some of our most popular resorts. If your hotel is covered by one of our resort escorts then this will be shown on your booking confirmation.
If you don't have a physical resort escort in your resort then you can contact our virtual reps through the ChilliMix app. These are our expert team based in the UK and are on hand for you to help your holiday go as smoothly as possible and support with all the extras like recommending a restaurant or great bar to head off to!
If you need urgent help then you can also call our 24/7 emergency line on 0161 399 0549 if you're in the UK or +44161 399 0549 if you're overseas.
