This lists what is financially protected, where you can get information on what this means for you and who to contact if things go wrong.

    2. We will provide you with the services listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative).

You agree to accept that in those circumstances the alternative ATOL holder will perform those obligations and you agree to pay any money outstanding to be paid by you under your contract to that alternative ATOL holder. However, you also agree that in some cases it will not be possible to appoint an alternative ATOL holder, in which case you will be entitled to make a claim under the ATOL scheme (or your credit card issuer where applicable).

    3. If we are unable to provide the services listed (or a suitable alternative, through an alternative ATOL holder or otherwise) for reasons of insolvency, the Trustees of the Air Travel Trust may make a payment to (or confer a benefit on) you under the ATOL scheme. You agree that in return for such a payment or benefit you assign absolutely to those Trustees any claims which you have or may have arising out of or relating to the non-provision of the services, including any claim against us, the travel agent (or your credit card issuer where applicable). You also agree that any such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if that other body has paid sums you have claimed under the ATOL scheme.

      3. any payment made to you by the airline under the Denied Boarding Regulations.

    5. We are not liable for any damages caused by the failure to perform the contract or the improper performance of the contract where the failure of improper performance is (i) attributable to you or anyone named on the booking; (ii) attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the City Break/Flight + Hotel booking and are unforeseeable or unavoidable or (iii) an Event Outside Our Control (as defined in clause 8 of the General Terms and Conditions).
