You can purchase any one or more of the items mentioned above, without the need to purchase the others. You may make your own arrangements for flights, car hire etc. The services above are not offered at an “inclusive price”, and no protection is given under ATOL regulations.
Please note that buying airline seats from a company under an ATOL licence does not protect you against the failure of the airline, but only against the financial failure of the company selling you your flight seats.
Due to the enormous number of flights to the Algarve each week, with a huge variation in the airlines pricing policies, it is very difficult for the traveller to know the price of a flight until they come to the very last pages of their enquiry. Quite often, the initial price you see on screen at the beginning of your enquiry, is totally different from the final price.
The various components of a flight search and quotation are quite complex, and are shown below, but if you would like us to make the booking on your behalf, we can do this for a modest booking fee which will be advised at the time of booking.

Pros and Cons of Low Cost Airlines
Compared with traditional charter airlines, there are pros and cons to be considered. For the early booker, the are big savings to be made, as much as £150 per person on normal prices.
On the downside, Low Cost Airline fares increase the nearer you get to departure date, so they are not too good for late bookers. They require full payment for the flight at the time of booking. Should you wish to change your holiday dates after making your booking, then this may be more expensive, or not be possible at all. Meals are not included in the price, and on some airlines such as Easyjet, only snacks are available, and there is no pre allocation of seats, therefore not too good for large parties wanting to sit together. Some airlines such as Monarch and Jet 2 allow pre-booking of seats at a charge, including extra legroom seats.
Changes to your Holiday.
With low cost airlines such as Easyjet, any changes incur charges, and you will also have to pay the difference in cost between your original flight and the new one, which might have increased substantially.
If you book a low cost flight, and subsequently cancel your holiday, no refund will be made on your flight cost.
