Flexible Booking Policy


Our Flexible Booking Policy


We know that in uncertain times, you need to feel confident when making a booking. We want you to be sure that you won’t lose out if your plans need to change, and your money is safe and secure. That’s why we’ve introduced a series of new, enhanced policies to protect you, so you can book with confidence.


Rest assured, when you book your holiday with Riviera Travel, you can do so with complete confidence. 

  • Flexible booking* - With our full range of 2022 holidays on sale now, along with flexible booking options, you can plan ahead and book with confidence.

    Book a new holiday with us and you can enjoy the flexibility to change your booking before travel, with no fees and no questions asked. You can change your booking up to 45 days before departure for 2021 holidays. New bookings for 2022 can be changed for free up until 31 December 2021.

  • Your money is safe and secure no matter what – at all times, your money is 100% protected by ABTA and ATOL. You’ll find the proof here: https://www.abta.com/tips-and-advice/is-my-holiday-protected.

  • Covid-19 Curtailment Protection as standard  – if you have to cut your holiday short as a direct consequence of the pandemic and your insurance provider doesn’t cover you, we’ll automatically compensate you for the proportion of your holiday that you’ve missed out on.
  • Best price promise -  if the price of your holiday is reduced after you book, we’ll automatically reduce the cost for you too. There’s no benefit for booking late, but by booking early, you can secure your preferred dates and options.
  • Happy in every sense or your money back – if you’re not happy or comfortable in your new surroundings by Day Two, we’ll bring you home at no extra charge and offer you a full refund.

Don’t forget, you're also always protected by our Happiness Guarantee!
