Airport assistance

You can book any airport assistance you might need when arriving in Florida through Virgin Atlantic or the airline you’re flying with. While we aren’t able to do this directly for you, making sure you have a stress-free experience is important to us. We can point you in the right direction with an airline’s contact details, who will be happy to discuss your needs at both the airport and during your flight. Make sure you contact them as soon as possible, as different airlines have different assistance measures and procedures in place, so to avoid any disappointment, do get in touch ahead of your flight so they can have everything ready for your departure and your arrival in Florida.

Orlando Arrival

Arriving in Orlando

As we are aware that not all disabilities are visible, we would suggest that any disabled customers arriving into Orlando have a completed disability notification card on them to present to customs and immigration upon arrival. Security and immigration lines in the USA are manned by TSA agents, showing this card to any TSA agent will ensure your arrival process into Orlando is as smooth as can be.

Payment flexibility

Don’t worry if you’ve missed a payment or just need a little more time to pay; we have options available to help you. If your holiday is going ahead as planned, you can continue to pay for your holiday in Manage my booking, even if travelling in less than 12 weeks. If you’re unsure, you can delay any additional payments by choosing a new time to travel by requesting a call back in Manage My booking for one of our team to look at options. If your holiday is more than 6 months away, you may wish to set up a Direct Debit to spread the cost. This can be arranged whilst rebooking or afterwards in Manage my booking.

Thank you for your patience and understanding

Payments are being prioritised based on when the request was made, working in order from March 2020 onwards. We will always try to process refunds at the earliest opportunity, for requests before August our maximum timeframe is 120 days. As we are steadily reducing the maximum processing time for each new request, for refund requests made in August, we expect the maximum processing time to be 80 days, from the date the refund is requested. For those requesting a refund in September, we expect it to be processed within a maximum of 60 days, and then reduce to 30 days for refunds requested in October, before returning to normal levels.

We'll be in touch soon

To finalise the amendment, one of our customer advisors will phone you. We need to work through amend requests in departure date order so we can prioritise those with the most imminent travel plans, so you may have a longer wait than usual until we’re able to ring you back. We will help everyone that wants to move their holiday.

I returned early from holiday and have further questions?

You can contact our team by emailing to discuss options on unused portions of your holiday. If you need to contact our team about amending an existing holiday or requesting a refund please log in to manage my booking.
