When you buy an ATOL protected flight inclusive holiday you will receive a Confirmation Invoice from us confirming your arrangements and your protection under our Air Travel Organiser's Licence number 3971. In the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you may have paid to us for an advance booking.

If you book arrangements other than a package holiday (for example, accommodation only), the financial protection referred to above does not apply.
