It’s that time of year again! The sales are on and you’re
recovering from the Christmas madness either at home,
in the shops or both. What better way to blow away the
post-festivity blues than by booking your next holiday!
Give yourself something to look forward to over the next
few months.
Unfortunately 2016 saw the collapse of a couple of
well-known travel companies. A lot of people got
stung when one particular company that was not
nancially protected went into administration. It has
again highlighted the need to ensure that you book with
a reputable travel company that follows the industry
guidelines with regards to processes and has the right
nancial protection. We are members of ABTA and have
ATOL fi nancial protection so you can have peace of mind
when booking with us.
Pages 29 - 31 explain more about ABTA and ATOL
and what you should look for when choosing a travel
company to book with.
We have included a selection of holidays, cruises,
tours and short breaks in our complimentary magazine
featuring holiday ideas and destination suggestions from
a wide range of the UK’s leading holiday companies. We
work with over 300 suppliers giving you plenty of variety
and choice.

This is G Adventures
730 tours on 7 continents.
120,000 travellers a year.
Countless lives changed.
We’ve always done things a bit dierently. To us,
there’s no such thing as thinking ‘outside the box’
because we don’t believe in boxes.
Small groups
A huge part of the experience is the un-huge size
of our groups. Whether you wish to go solo or with
loved ones, our average group size of 12 allows for
more personal service, insider access, and amazing
experiences you simply can’t get in a large group.
Community
Every G Adventures tour helps connect local
people to the global travel economy, ensuring
more of your holiday money stays with the local
communities you visit and who earn it. The people
we encounter get to live better lives and you get to
discover the world.
CEOs
Each tour comes with a locally hired CEO (Chief
Experience Ocer) responsible for oering insight,
pursuing great experiences as they happen, and adding
personal perspective to every adventure. Our CEOs
make every travel experience the very best it can be.
Diverse transport
Our award-winning tours embrace local experiences
at every turn, and from tuk tuk and rickshaw to
public bus, train, and even camel, we’re all about
variety. Local transport is often the most colourful
(and definitely most memorable) way to go.
Unique accommodations
From incredible home stays and smaller hotels to
sleeping moored under the stars in a tranquil bay
– our options provide you with the most authentic
experience possible and always reflect the local
character and spirit of the adventure at hand.

ABTA – Helping you
to travel with
confidence
For most of us holidays are the high point of the year, a chance to relax, enjoy new experiences,
and spend time with loved ones. However, holidays probably also represent the biggest single
expense you will make in the year. Unfortunately, with big sums at stake the industry can often
be targeted by fraudsters and sometimes standards are not as high as they should be. So, ensuring
that your holiday goes smoothly and that your investment is not wasted is incredibly important.
That’s where ABTA and our Members come in.
Visit us at abta.com
ABTA is the UK’s largest travel association, representing
travel agents and tour operators that together sell £33
billion of holidays and other travel arrangements each year.
We’ve been a trusted travel brand for more than 65 years,
offering advice, guidance and protection to the travelling
public, as well as leading the travel industry in supporting
high service standards, working with our Members on health
and safety, and promoting responsible tourism at home
and abroad.
How we protect you
All package and ‘Flight-Plus’ holidays that our Members sell
are protected financially in the event of a company failure.
This means that if your travel company were to go out of
business, you’d be able to continue your holiday as planned
or get your money back.
Also when you’re booking your holiday, you can relax
knowing that our Members abide by our strict Code of
Conduct which governs areas such as accurate advertising,
fair terms of trading, changes to bookings and managing
customer complaints.
The expertise we offer you
ABTA provides expert help and advice for our Members
and their customers. We work with the Foreign Office and
with destinations overseas so that whatever is happening
around the world, we can provide around-the-clock, expert
travel advice.
We are also here to help you understand your rights:
for example, if your flight is cancelled or delayed, or if
government travel restrictions are announced which
affect your holiday plans.
How we support you
Our Members provide millions of fantastic holidays every
year, but sometimes things don’t go to plan. Any issue that
you can’t resolve with an ABTA Member, we’re here to help.
If needed, you’ll also have access to our fast, cost-effective
and independent complaints resolution service.
So, for peace of mind when booking travel always look for
the ABTA logo.
Abta.com
The ABTA website is a mine of information giving advice
on all aspects of travelling, solo holidays, pet trips,
passports and visas, tips for women, adventure trips,
local customs, essential health and safety tips, to name
just a few. This advice has been put together by the
leading experts in the industry. If you need to know
anything about travel chances are it’ll be on abta.com.

Guaranteed protection for your holiday
We all love a good deal on a holiday, especially when you’ve got a family to pay for.
But, did you know that if your travel company isn’t ATOL protected, you could
lose money or be stranded abroad if it goes under.
That’s where ATOL comes in...
What is ATOL?
ATOL stands for Air Travel Organiser’s Licence.
It is a national scheme operated by the Civil Aviation
Authority (CAA), and it protects you when you book an
air holiday with a travel company in the UK.
ATOL protects around 20 million holidaymakers and
travellers every year.
How does it work?
Choosing an ATOL protected travel company means it’s
been checked out by the CAA, so if the company does
go under, you’re in safe hands.
lIf you’re on holiday, ATOL will make sure you can
nish your break and get home as planned.
lIf you haven’t yet travelled, ATOL will make sure you
can get a full refund for the holiday - and in some
cases you may be able to continue your holiday as
planned.
For contact details and to book see page 3

ATOL has it covered
Check for ATOL protection before you book.
ATOL covers the following trips:
light-inclusive packages with a tour operator, either
directly or through a travel agent
lights and accommodation and/or car hire booked
at the same time or on the next day with a travel
company
lights booked with a travel company and you don’t
get a valid airline ticket straightaway.
It’s easy to check you’re protected
Before you book:
Look for the ATOL logo in brochures, advertisements and
on websites; each ATOL protected travel company has
a unique ATOL number.
Or, visit the ATOL website to check the travel company
and its ATOL number:
www.packpeaceofmind.co.uk
If you book with a travel company, they will tell you
about your ATOL protection. If in doubt, speak to the
travel company or check with ATOL.
Visit our website at: www.packpeaceofmind.co.uk
or call 020 7453 6700
When you book:
Whether you book direct or with a travel agent, you must
be issued with an ATOL certicate as soon as you make
any payment for an ATOL protected trip.
www.facebook.com/atolprotected
@packpeaceofmind
What’s an ATOL certificate?
Your ATOL certicate is proof that the holiday or ight
you have booked is protected by ATOL.
It tells you what protection you have and what to do if
your travel company goes under.
Go to our website to nd out more and see what ATOL
certicates look like.
Keep your ATOL certificate somewhere
safe and make sure you keep it
handy on holiday.
ATOL doesn’t cover all holidays
You won’t be ATOL protected if you book:
ljust a ight with a travel company and get
your airline tickets straightaway
ljust accommodation or car hire
lor a holiday with no ights.
Remember, not all air holidays sold in the UK are ATOL
protected.
If in doubt, check it out!
For further information, to check an ATOL or just to
contact us about something, visit our website at:

Enjoy your trip with peace of mind...
handy on holiday.
