Three theme parks, three times the fun

The Incredible Hulk Coaster® is also perfect for thrill seekers.

Splash about at Universal’s Volcano Bay water theme park, with an aqua coaster, pools and body slides galore. Whatever thrill level you’re after, Volcano Bay has you covered; four person raft rides like Honu of Honu ika Moana and Krakatau Aqua Coaster, the children’s play area to end all play areas, Runamukka Reef (bubbling geysers and water guns, say no more), and even a winding river to relax in.

At Universal Studios Florida, guests can immerse themselves into the action of their favourite movies and television shows – from Despicable Me to TRANSFORMERS to Shrek – in a variety of location-themed sets. Experience the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, and the hustle and bustle of New York.

Your trip would be incomplete without a wander around the shops at Diagon Alley™ in Universal Studios Florida (don’t forget to drop in at Ollivanders™ and Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes!) Guests can grab a Butterbeer™ at the Leaky Cauldron™, and travel deep below ground to ride the thrilling Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™.

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.
