More about Los Angeles

Designed to only stand for 18 months, the sign deteriorated over the course of more than half a century, until 1978, where a public campaign led by Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy Magazine, found donors to restore the sign and ensure it was a more permanent structure.

Anaheim was a sleepy suburban town until animator Walt Disney
built a theme park in the midst of it all. Disneyland boasts two different resorts, with a range of rides featuring much loved Disney characters and is a great place for all the family to visit.

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 feedback.backhome@virginholidays.com 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.
