Please contact your insurance company. For those who have taken out insurance with Endsleigh, your cover will be extended to your new holiday dates. Please contact CEGA if you have any questions regarding insurance claims on 01202 038 946 or email 



Will the latest VAT reduction change the price of my holiday? 


Your booking price will not be amended in line with the recent change to VAT. This is because the advertised cost for your booking is a contractual agreement with the owner, regardless of any changes to the VAT rates.
