In the unlikely event of Insolvency, you must Inform Towergate Travel immediately on +44 (0) 1932 334140 or by email at tcs@towergate.co.uk . Please ensure you retain the booking confirmation form as evidence of cover and value. Policy exclusions: This policy will not cover any monies paid for Travel Insurance

ATOL FINANCIAL PROTECTION ON FLIGHTS

Many of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. But ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed on this website. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. Please see our booking conditions for information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to: www.atol.org.uk/ATOLcertificate

Passport, Visa & General travel advice

We do not get involved directly with queries regarding passports or visa elegibility. Checking your right to travel is your responsibility. These are questions for your country's embassy, home office,  or if in the UK, please see https://www.gov.uk/browse/abroad/passports for passport information, https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration & https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice for visa information and https://www.gov.uk/browse/abroad/travel-abroad for general information. The FCO's website in the UK has lots of useful material, and in addition to the above links please see https://www.gov.uk/knowbeforeyougo. 

Once you have checked your visa eligibility, you can use our exclusive visa partner - the visa machine - to apply for the visas in question directly with them by clicking here.

Travel Insurance

All tours and programmes arranged by us will automatically include our travel insurance with Fogg Travel Services unless otherwise stated. This is based on past experience and is much better to be fully prepared in our experience. Should you wish to remove this, please consult us, send us proof of your own travel insurance, and then we should be glad to return the difference to you. Upon verbal acceptance of a Glo-Ed quote (before any monies have been paid), we will issue you with a provisional booking e-pack, which will contain our insurance key facts for you to consider. You will then have until deposits are due to decide if you would like to keep the insurance or provide your own.

Passengers with disabilities

If you or any members of your party have any disabilities, it is extremely important that we make the necessary arrangements to make your holiday go as smoothly as possible. We must therefore insist that you contact our office on +44 (0) 1865 900501 before completing any reservation to ensure compatibility for the holiday that you choose.

Terms & Conditions

Our terms & conditions are available at any time to download through your dedicated 'Departure Lounge' portal & also by email request for further copies. We discuss most of these throughout the booking process with you as standard.
