Package Holidays


As a consumer, you are protected by the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.

What is a package holiday?

A package holiday includes at least two of the following:

  • transport
  • accommodation
  • tourist services, such as a tour representative or day trips

The holiday is sold at an inclusive price, meaning you pay for everything all together. It must also cover a period of more than 24 hours or include overnight accommodation.

Many holiday arrangements are not packages covered by the regulations e.g. if you design your own holiday on the internet using a combination of different suppliers for transport and accommodation. If you are booking your holiday through a website check if they are supplying you with a package holiday.
