Further detail: Website Retargeting

Legal ground: Your consent & legitimate interests

We use cookies or similar technologies to serve online advertising and to identify unique customers. We may work with advertising partners to deliver targeted advertising related to our holiday services. To facilitate targeted advertising, we and our third-party partners may utilise “cookies” (see our above “Cookies” policy) or equivalent identifiers and other audience matching technologies. We use data elements from our corporate marketing databases to assist us in presenting appropriate offers to our prospective clients.

Our advertising partners may place a pixel tag or cookie on certain pages of our website, such as an email registration page or our booking confirmation page. This enables our partner companies to later display a relevant advertisement to you based on your website browsing behaviour. This type of online, targeted advertising — known as “retargeting” — is used to re-engage consumers who previously visited a website. Certain information may be collected and shared with these partners, including what page you viewed, when you viewed it and whether you clicked on the advert (see our above policy on “Cookies”).

We will only share your personal data (including any sensitive information/special category data) with the travel service providers who are relevant to your booking, in order to meet your request(s), and will always do so in a secure manner. We also take steps to ensure that the travel service partners we work with will not share your data with any other party not connected with your booking, and will only retain it for as long as it is necessary to process your booking and /or request. We also take steps to ensure that they keep your data safe and secure whilst it is being processed. We do not sell your personal data to any third parties.

In the event of any complaint or dispute, we may need to share this data with other relevant parties, such as your hotel or airline to help us with our investigation.  In the case of a serious dispute involving legal proceedings, we will need to share your data with our insurance company and legal advisors in order to comply with legal obligations and to assist with the handling of the matter.


We fully respect your right to privacy and take our responsibility for the collection of your personal information very seriously. We make every effort to ensure that your personal information is kept secure and is only used for the purpose for which it is collected. We will also only retain your data for as long as it is necessary and in accordance with the basis upon which it was collected. In the case of a complaint or a claim, we may need to retain your data for up to 5 years in order to comply with any of our legal obligations.
