We will collect the following data to provide the holiday you ask us to book:

Some holiday providers may also require us to provide additional details, such as passenger passport information. They may also require travel insurance information relating to the holiday in question and next of kin contact to be used only in the event of an emergency.

If you do not agree to us collecting this data, we will be unable to accept your booking.
