Privacy Policy

Travel Editions do our utmost to protect your privacy. If you request our brochure, sign up to receive our weekly e-newsletter or make a booking with us, this policy explains what information about you we will collect, how we will use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others, and how we keep it secure.

The core principles of our policy:

1. We collect and use individual client details only where we have legitimate business reasons and are legally entitled to do so.

2. We are transparent in our dealings with you as to what information about you we will collect and how we will use your information.

Personal information we collect

When you contact us (by e-mail, phone, fax, letter, in person or via our website) to enquire about our tours, receive further information or make a booking, we must collect personal details in order to fulfil your request.

Most of the time we need only your name and contact details (telephone number, postal address and/or e-mail address), but if you plan to enter into a contract with us by making a booking, we require further information relating to you (and your travel companion(s), if applicable). These may include:

– Full name(s) and addresse(s);
– Dates of birth; 
– Passport details; 
– Travel insurance details;
– Credit/debit card or other payment details; 
– Emergency contact details; 
– Special requirements (such as a disability or medical condition which may affect your enjoyment of the tour, as well as any dietary restrictions).

We may also ask some further voluntary questions during registration for certain services (for example, the destinations or themes of holidays you are most interested in) so we can gain a clearer understanding of our clients.

You are responsible for ensuring that other members of your party are aware of the content of this Policy and consent to you acting on their behalf in all your dealings with us.
