Financial Protection

Book with Confidence & Security

A key benefit of booking with a UK-based tour operator, is that you are covered by very stringent British travel industry regulations and UK legislation throughout your holiday.


ATOL Protection

Our air holiday packages are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is ATOL 2896.

All the flights and flight‐inclusive holidays on this website to/from the UK are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check the package name and flights you have booked are listed on it.

For further details about the ATOL Certificate visit www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate

ABTOT Bonding

As a member of the Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust Limited (ABTOT), Discover the World has provided a bond to meet the requirements of the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.

Through our membership of ABTOT, we offer financial protection for non-flight inclusive holidays and flight inclusive packages purchased through us where the initial flight from your home country is outside of the UK, thus ensuring that all money paid to us is protected no matter what.

In the event of insolvency, protection is provided for non-flight packages commencing in and returning to the UK and other non-flight packages excluding pre arranged travel to and from your destination and flight inclusive packages, where the initial flight is from your home country (outside of the UK) and is included in the package price of the holiday. Please note that packages booked outside the UK are only protected when purchased directly with Discover the World.

In the above circumstances, if you have not yet travelled you may claim a refund, or if you have already travelled, you may claim repatriation to the starting point of your package.

ABTOT provides protection for your booking as set out in clause 19 of our booking conditions.


We are also members of ABTA The Travel Association and AITO (Association of Independent Tour Operators).
