Payments & Deposits
Payments & Deposits
A £150 non-refundable deposit is required in respect of Bespoke Travel Enquiries prior to the preparation and release of any itemised travel itinerary or proposal, but it may be waived at the discretion of the Company, particularly if the enquiry is made by an existing client or client referral. This type of deposit is always non-refundable but we will treat it as a payment on account if a booking arises from the enquiry.
Deposits paid in respect of tours and holidays that are based on a particular departure will vary, the amount payable is usually shown along with the tour prices advertised on this website but is confirmed prior to, or at the time of booking.
Virtually every travel arrangement, holiday and tour of every type including “package holidays” booked through Livingstone’s Travel World is financially protected by the ATOL scheme. This ATOL protection is provided by the principal ATOL holder, who we act for as an agent.
ATOL Receipt and ATOL Certificates are issued to clients at all stages of the booking process; if you do not receive an ATOL Receipt/Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. For more information about ATOL protection, go to the website: www.atol.org.uk.
In the event that a travel related service you require as part of a holiday, tour or bespoke travel arrangement is not protected, we undertake to advise you of this and happily discuss what protection is possible. This can often come from the cover provided by a debit or credit card payment or from travel insurance, which is an absolute necessity with all overseas travel. For information on general booking conditions please see our Booking Terms & Conditions, or for any concerns in relation booking protection call 020 7118 2110.
