Frequently asked questions


How do I make a booking?

You can make a booking on our website – simply select the tour you wish to book and click 'Book Now'. On some holidays we need to request flight seats – these are also bookable on-line but we will not take any payment from your card or confirm your booking until we have secured your flights. We will send you confirmation once this has been done. Alternatively, simply telephone our Reservations Team on 01283 742 300 -  Opening hours are 9.00am to 7.00pm, Monday to Friday and 10:00am to 4:00pm, Saturday and Sunday.

Is my money protected?

We are fully bonded with the CAA and ABTA so you can rest assured that your money is safe in any eventuality.

What’s included on my holiday?

Our fully comprehensive itineraries include all of the ‘must see’ sights and experiences your selected destination offers. Many operators sell these as ‘options’ – but on a Riviera holiday you will miss nothing of importance. We do not sell you lots of additional excursions that just add to your overall costs. For specific details of what is included, please see the relevant tour page.

Should I book my holiday before Brexit or wait until after?

Riviera Travel have been in business for 36 years and are fully bonded members of ABTA and ATOL so when you book with Riviera Travel you can do so with complete peace of mind. The price you pay won’t change after you have booked, there is no benefit in booking late but by booking early, you guarantee the best choice.
