Financial Protection

A key benefit of booking with a UK-based tour operator, is that you are covered by very stringent British travel industry regulations and UK legislation throughout your holiday so you can book with confidence and security.

ATOL

Our air holiday packages are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is ATOL 2896.

All the flights and flight‐inclusive holidays on this website to/from the UK are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check the package name and flights you have booked are listed on it.

For further details about the ATOL Certificate visit www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate


ABTOT Bonding

The Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust Limited (ABTOT) provides financial protection under The Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 for Discover the World Limited, and in the event of their insolvency, protection is provided for the following:

  1. non-flight packages and
  2. flight inclusive packages that commence outside of the EU, which are sold to customers outside of the EU*.

* Please note that flight inclusive packages that commence within the EU but outside of the UK will continue to be covered by ABTOT until the renewal of Discover the World Limited’s ATOL number 2896 in March 2019 in accordance with the transition period authorised by the Civil Aviation Authority.

ABTOT cover provides for a refund in the event you have not yet travelled or repatriation if you are abroad. Please note that bookings made outside the UK are only protected by ABTOT when purchased directly with Discover the World Limited.

In the unlikely event that you require assistance whilst abroad due to our financial failure, please call our 24/7 helpline on 01702 811397 and advise you are a customer of an ABTOT protected travel company.
