If you are considering alternative companies please ensure they are officially bonded for your own protection. Some companies display an ATOL logo but you're not covered because they don't provide travel! Just ask if you're uncertain...
If Le Ski failed before a guest went on a flight inclusive holiday the CAA would refund what they had paid for their holiday. If Le Ski failed while they were on a flight inclusive holiday the CAA would get them home. If Le Ski failed before a guest went on a non-flight inclusive holiday ABTOT (the Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust) would refund what they had paid for their holiday. If Le Ski failed while they were on an non-flight inclusive holiday ABTOT (the Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust Ltd.) would get them home.
Le Ski have held ATOL No. 2307 (Air Travel Organiser’s Licence) for over 20 years. It is renewed every year but only after stringent financial checks are made by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority).
Here are just some of the 25 or so lovely comments we received when our flights were affected by the volcanic ash cloud over Europe in April 2010. There really are major benefits from booking with a proper, fully bonded, experienced tour operator.
“The reason for writing is to say that the contingency plans put in place for our return were first class. Although we had a further journey to Scotland from Gatwick, the coaches arrived no more than 4 hours after the original scheduled time. In our opinion, a fantastic result for all guests”
- Mr IB
“We have just returned from our holiday in Val d’Isère and on behalf of my party I want to congratulate you on the swift and efficient manner in which you tackled the problems posed by the volcanic ash situation… your company and staff reacted very well to the uncertainty of the situation.”
- Mr PC
“Just wanted to say thanks for getting us home from Val d'Isère so efficiently yesterday. Hearing the stories this morning, we were very lucky.”
It doesn't matter how you pay, you are covered by our ATOL or ABTOT bonds!
Le Ski also hold ABTOT (the Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust Ltd.) licence 5143.
