See our Booking Conditions for the terms and conditions relevant to the purchase of travel products and holidays from us.

In addition, when you book any products or services from us, you will do so subject to these Website Terms and Conditions, our Booking Conditions and such further terms and conditions as may be applied by the hotel or cruise ship where you will be staying (together, the "Conditions of Contract"). These Conditions of Contract constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and TRAVEL DIRECT (LIVE HOLIDAYS) in relation to their subject matter.

Other holiday and travel related services such as travel insurance, foreign exchange and travel money cards are supplied by our selected service providers and are available for you to purchase through our own branded websites or directly via the supplier website – the supply of these products and services to you shall be subject to the terms and conditions of each service provider and not us.
