Certain flight operators such as Ryanair, Easyjet etc may store your details for future use, allowing for a faster check-in.

They are retained for future reference by staff and—upon request— external bodies such as the CAA, the police and in cases where a court order has been issued.In order to comply with our obligations under the ATOL licence scheme, we must be able to demonstrate each type of booking we make.

8. Websites, social media and cookies

For customers’ protection our site uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology—this is evident when checking for the https:// prefix.

The website has tracking pixels with Facebook and Google and allows us to analyse data of those viewing our site. This is used primarily for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) purposes and for marketing analysis.

We advertise our products over Facebook, Google and Twitter. Occasionally with facebook we will pay for a campaign with a selectable customer base which may be based around location/ interests/ age etc. Customers are advised to check their own social media settings.

9. Status of the lead passenger

It has long been the company’s policy to deal only with the lead passenger when confirming or amending a booking. We may need to run a security check to satisfy ourselves that we are in fact dealing with the correct person. This prevents other named persons on the booking from making amendments to which the others may not agree and also prevents those not connected to the booking from obtaining data as per the Data Protection Act.

There may be instances where we are unable to contact the lead passenger (such as cases where a booking is made as a present and the lead passenger is unaware in which case separate bookers details would be required. It would then be incumbent on the booker to provide us with required details..

In situations where the lead passenger has died., we require proof of death from the next of kin and will make amendments accordingly in the name of the new lead. Charges may be applicable.

In all cases for amendments, we will need instructions in writing which may be emailed to us for speed and ease.

10. In the eventuality of a breach of information

Should the details of a customer inadvertently be shared with anybody else without their prior consent to permit identification in such a manner that their freedoms should be compromised, we will address the issue as soon as it is raised and inform the Information Commissioners Office within 72 hours to notify them of the breach.
