You’ll save time and money when you book your flight + hotel or flight + car together. Find the best available prices on, with guaranteed savings compared with booking separately. Customers booking any two products through ‘Customise your trip’ can also secure their booking with a deposit.

Securing your booking with a low deposit

Low online deposits can only be paid for bookings created as flight + hotel or flight + car packages. All flight only, hotel, car and experience only bookings, and any hotel, car or experiences added to a flight only booking are excluded from this offer.

collapsedshowIs my booking confirmed if I have only paid a deposit?

Yes. Paying a deposit fully confirms your booking.

collapsedshowHow is the deposit amount calculated?

The deposit amount is based on the value of your booking. During your booking process the amount of deposit required will be automatically calculated and advised.

Yes. On the payment page you will have the option to pay the minimum amount, more than the minimum amount or the full amount.

The full balance of the booking must be paid at least 5 weeks prior to your departure.

You will be sent a balance due reminder via email.

collapsedshowDo I have to pay the balance in one payment?

No. You can pay the balance in as many instalments as you want. This allows you to spread the cost of the holiday over a longer period. You will have full flexibility of when you make the payments and how much they are.

The only requirement is that you must have paid the full balance at least 5 weeks prior to departure.

collapsedshowHow do I pay the balance?

Your email confirmation will include details of how to do this after you have completed your booking.
