Setting up Direct Debit

Direct debit

Make life a bit easier for yourself by setting up a Direct Debit!

Direct Debit allows you to spread your holiday cost over a period that fits with you and once it's set up, you can sit back, relax and dream of the days where you'll be the star of your own holiday.

It also comes with a guarantee, that means you're automatically protected and can cancel your payments any time. Full details of the Direct Debit Guarantee appear on the mandate form below.

You don't need to pay all your balance by Direct Debit, but any outstanding amount will need to be paid by your balance due date.

In order to set up a Direct Debit you'll need to download the Mandate Form

It's as easy as pie and if you like the sound of this, please fill out the mandate form and pop it in the post to us. It's freepost so you don't even need to add a stamp:
