Have you ever had a holiday full of unforeseen events? So many you couldn’t enjoy your travel abroad or maybe just one big unforgettable unlucky event? Yes? Well, how did the travel agency you booked with help you? But, most important, was yours an ATOL protected holiday? Have you bought your travel insurance?
Of course: if you are on holiday, either if you are on a romantic honeymoon with your other half or maybe on an adventure with friends climbing a volcano or even sunbathing next to your wife while your two little ones are playing in the sand, you don’t really want anything to ruin that moment. That’s why it’s so important that you book an ATOL Protected holiday and a travel insurance together with your holiday package. Because you want you and your loved ones to be protected on holiday from those unforeseen events which perhaps can make your meant-to-be-relaxed days look like a nightmare.
Thinking about the worst scenario, ATOL Protection secures your holiday – and your money – in case the travel company you booked with goes bankrupt. What would you do if for example you booked a holiday with Sicily Holiday, the Family Deal for 2 adults and 2 kids for example, and at some point the travel agency web based on sicilyholiday.co.uk went bankrupt? Think about it, we’ll come back to this point.
You probably did not know how important is your holiday to be protected. Protected from the already mentioned unforeseen events, or unexpected cancellation from the agency itself, or the majestic Force Majeure. It happens, but the worst scenario is itself your already ruined holiday.
ATOL stands for Air Travel Organiser’s Licence. Which means you’ll get a certificate as soon as your booking is confirmed and paid in full, showing you are covered and ensuring you won’t get stranded abroad or neither lose your money. The ATOL scheme, as stated on the website of the firm, is designed to reassure consumers that their money is safe, and will provide assistance in the event of a travel company failure.
Look before you book is the main rule, if you don’t want to get stuck. Check for the ATOL logo on the travel company website, brochures and advertisements. If you are still concerned, ask your travel company to tell you about their offered ATOL protection, or use the Check an ATOL facility. It will allow you to check if the travel agency you are booking with is part of the ATOL scheme.
And what about the travel insurance? We already mentioned the well known Force Majeure, and, as we like to say, you’ll never know until it happens to you. So, instead of trying to call the embassy on a Sunday afternoon, ensure your holiday.
Travel insurances are normally cheaper than you can think, ask Sicily Holiday for a quote or contact our provider Holiday Extras for more informations before you book – or either after – and make sure your holiday is protected from anything which could happen.
