Booking your holiday for 2017
With 2017 fast approaching many of us have already booked or are considering booking our holiday for 2017. Booking a holiday well in advance can be stressful for many people as they worry that their situation may change within the next 12 months and that for whatever reason they may not be able to go on their pre-booked holiday.
When booking a holiday for 2017 or beyond, always check what insurance you have in place should you need to cancel the holiday or should the tour operators cancel it for whatever reason. Make sure that your holiday is ATOL protected as this will give you peace of mind that should the firm you booked with go bust you will not be left stranded on holiday and will be entitled to your money back. Every firm in the UK that offers air travel holidays must hold an ATOL.
Although ATOL will help in terms of covering losses caused by the tour operators, it will not cover you for cancellations that are on your behalf therefore you need to make sure that you have your own insurance for this.
