 RTW Price Guarantee
We've noticed recently that some bigger operators have been marking up RTWs at higher rates and then offering a price guarantee to dupe you into thinking you're getting a good deal. We think this is wrong. This is because they don't employ RTW specialists - they just employ kids out of school with minimal training. We work extremely hard to bring you the most knowledgeable consultants and the lowest possible prices. We back this up with our RTW Price Guarantee, in the unlikely event that you find a cheaper RTW quote elsewhere in the UK, we will do our very best to beat it. The rules are here

 ATOL and IATA bonding
We have an Air Travel Organiser’s License (ATOL - 6283) granted by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). ATOL protects you from losing your money or being stranded abroad. It does this by carrying out checks on the tour operators and travel organisers it licenses, and requiring a financial guarantee called a bond, which is lodged with us. If a tour operator goes out of business, the CAA will make a refund to you, or if you're abroad, we'll arrange for you to finish your holiday and fly home. For further information please visit the ATOL website at www.atol.org.uk. The company is also a member and is bonded by the International Air Travel Association (IATA - 91257073), which allows us to issue tickets on our premises in Islington. All RTW airline tickets also include Schedule Airline Failure Insurance (SAFI) - which will be added to your invoice if scheduled airline flights are booked. RTW Travel insurance is strongly recommended at all times more

ATOL - Air Travel Organisers Licensing

ATOL exists to protect the public from losing money or being stranded abroad because of the failure of air travel firms. It was first introduced in 1972 and it gives comprehensive consumer protection to 28 million people in the UK who buy flights or air holidays each year. The company has an Air Travel Organiser’s License (ATOL - 6283) granted by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). ATOL protects you from losing your money or being stranded abroad. It does this by carrying out checks on the tour operators and travel organisers it licenses, and requiring a financial guarantee called a bond, which is lodged with us. If a tour operator goes out of business, the CAA will make a refund to you, or if you're abroad, we'll arrange for you to finish your holiday and fly home. For further information please visit the ATOL website at www.atol.org.uk.

Many of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays with roundtheworldflights.com are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. But ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed on this website. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. Please see our booking conditions for information, or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go here

CAA - The Civil Aviation Authority

The CAA is a government body that issues Air Travel Organisers Licenses (ATOL). While the CAA focuses primarily on airline travel, all travel arrangements sold in conjunction with a flight, will also be protected.

 

IATA - The International Airport Association

The International Airport Association governs the administration of airline ticket issuance. The company is also a member and is bonded by the International Air Travel Association (IATA - 91257073), which allows us to issue tickets on our premises in Islington.

 

The Pacific Asia Travel Association

The Pacific Asia Travel Association is a not-for-profit travel trade association serving government tourist offices, airlines, hotels and other travel-related companies throughout the Pacific Asia region. PATA's mission is to enhance the growth, value and quality of Pacific Asia travel and tourism for the benefit of its membership. PATA has long been an advocate of balancing growth with responsible conservation measures.

SAFI

Schedule Airline Failure Insurance

All our round the world airline tickets on scheduled airlines also include Schedule Airline Failure Insurance (SAFI) - which will be added to your invoice when scheduled airline flights are booked. The cover provided therefore enables us to claim back the cost of a refund of the ticket or providing an alternative flight should an airline be unable to fulfil its obligation to its passengers due to financial failure, prior to you travelling or enables us to claim back the cost of providing a return ticket in the event that you are outside the U.K. at the time of the financial failure occurring. However RTW Travel insurance is strongly recommended at all times (especially if travelling on LCCs - Low Cost Carriers - more here)
