For your peace of mind

ABTA and ATOL protected

P&O Cruises is fully bonded with ABTA and your fly-cruise holidays are ATOL protected. This means you have the benefit, support and expertise of ABTA’s assistance and Code of Conduct for all non-fly-cruise holidays sold in the UK. And your fly-cruise is financially protected by the ATOL scheme.

Financial protection

The combination of travel services offered to you by P&O Cruises is a package within the meaning of the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018. Therefore, you will benefit from all UK rights applying to packages. P&O Cruises will be fully responsible for the proper performance of the package as a whole. Additionally, as required by law, P&O Cruises has protection in place to refund your payments and, where transport is included in the package, to ensure your repatriation in the event that it becomes insolvent.

Our fly-cruises are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. Our ATOL number is 6294. When you pay you will be supplied with an ATOL Certificate. Please ask for it and check to ensure that everything you booked (flights, hotels and other services) is listed on it. ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services. All non-fly cruises sold in the UK are protected by ABTA. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. Please see our booking conditions for further information, or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to:
