You Can Trust Us

We always book your travel arrangements with ATOL protected tour operators, so your money is always safe. We only choose to work with the specialists and select number of tour operators to ensure you obtain the best possible service.

From the 1st October 2012  the CAA has introduced new legislation concerning travellers protection. At Travel Designers as soon as a client confirms a flight inclusive package booking we will automatically issue an ATOL certificate confirming your financial protection. This can be emailed, faxed or sent to you in the post.  – We’re 100% committed to your financial protection.
