Customer assurance

You can trust us with your holiday, to keep you safe and financially protected.


Some of the flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. But ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed on this website. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. Please see our booking conditions for information, or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to:

If the holiday arrangements you book with us do not include a flight, ATOL protection will not apply to your holiday and you will not receive an ATOL Certificate. Instead, your holiday will be financially protected by ABTOT – The Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust. Please note that bookings made outside the UK are only protected by ABTOT when purchased directly with Explore Worldwide Ltd. If you book a flight with us at a different time to the rest of your holiday (where your arrangements did not originally include a flight), your holiday booking will be amended to include the flight and will then be ATOL protected.

Trading Standards Approved

Explore was the first tour operator to qualify for the Trading Standards “Buy with Confidence” scheme. 

To qualify for the scheme, we had to be thoroughly vetted by Trading Standards and pass a series of detailed checks. These included agreeing to abide by the schemes code of conduct to operate in a legal, honest and fair way and demonstrate a high level of customer service; undergoing extensive checks including references from previous customers and reviews of the company’s complaints history. Explore was also visited by Trading Standards staff to prove that it was qualified, experienced and fully insured.

Guaranteed departures

Our Guaranteed Departures can be found on our website under the 'Dates and Prices' tab. On these departures we guarantee that the advertised 'Land Only' itinerary will not be cancelled or significantly changed after the first person has booked onto the trip, unless we are forced to do so by a 'force majeure' (as defined in our Booking Conditions). There is no minimum group size for these departures.

This guarantee does not apply to international or UK domestic flights, which may be subject to change or cancellation in accordance with our Booking Conditions.

If a departure is not guaranteed, we reserve the right to cancel it. We try very hard to make every departure work and only cancel when absolutely necessary. We will give you as much notice of a cancellation as possible, allowing you to consider alternative trips or dates. We do not guarantee a minimum number of participants for each trip and we may decide to operate a departure with less than the normal minimum number of people.
