Ilios Travel, Visions of Italy, Visions of Turkey and Visions of Spain are trading names of and wholly owned subsidiaries of Visions Holiday Group Limited. Visions Holiday Group Ltd. is fully bonded by the UK Civil Aviation Authority under Air Travel Organisers Licence (ATOL) No 5889. Holiday vacations featured on this website that include return flights commencing and returning to the UK only are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. This means that in the unlikely event of our insolvency, the CAA will ensure that you are not stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you have paid to us for an advance booking.
As the ATOL scheme only covers holiday vacations that include return flights commencing in and returning to the UK only, ground arrangement only holiday vacation packages are not covered by the ATOL scheme.
Ground arrangement only holidays and accommodation only arrangements are financially protected by the Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust Limited (ABTOT membership number 5217).
The Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust Limited (ABTOT) provides financial protection under The Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 for Visions Holiday Group, and in the event of their insolvency, protection is provided for the following:
1. non-flight packages and
2. flight inclusive packages that commence outside of the EU, which are sold to customers outside of the EU.
ABTOT cover provides for a refund in the event you have not yet travelled or repatriation if you are abroad. Please note that bookings made outside the EU are only protected by ABTOT when purchased directly with Visions Holiday Group.
In the unlikely event that you require assistance whilst abroad due to our financial failure, please call the ABTOT 24/7 helpline on 01702 811397 and advise you are a customer of an ABTOT protected travel company.

HOW TO RESERVE YOUR HOLIDAY

A provisional booking will be held for 2 days pending receipt of your booking form and deposit payment.

For bookings including flights a higher deposit to cover the cost of flights may be required. The deposit amount will be advised at the time of booking.)
Upon receipt of the above our office will issue a Confirmation Invoice setting out the details and full cost of your holiday booking as agreed. The balance of your holiday cost will become payable 13 weeks prior to departure. Holiday reservations made within 13 weeks of departure will require full payment at the time of booking.
