About Olympic Holidays

Olympic Holidays has been a well known and trusted brand throughout the UK for 48 years.
Over half a million holiday makers annually travel with Olympic Holidays - to Greece and Cyprus (for which it is the leading specialist), and also to other medium and long haul resorts - Turkey, Bulgaria, Red Sea Riviera, Luxor and Nile Cruises, Malta, Croatia, Montenegro, Gambia, Tunisia and Goa. Recently we have added Spain (including the Balearic and Canary Islands) and Portugal. Olympic Holidays has constantly expanded its portfolio of destinations and products to fill the wishes and requirements of an ever more sophisticated public, offering hotels, scheduled (including low cost) and charter flights and cruises.

Book with Olympic Holidays and you will have complete peace of mind. We're licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority and hold an Air Travel Organiser's License (ATOL) that protects you financially and is your guarantee of security. We are also members of ABTA and this ensures that we adhere to their trading standards and comply with their codes of conduct.

"Package Holiday" ATOL Certificates
with Olympic Holidays
"Flight-Plus" ATOL Certificates
with Dynamic packagers
Means you have booked with a bona fide tour operator who offers you flight, hotel and apartments from its own portfolio selected and contracted as a result of personal inspection and experience.
Means you have booked with a "dynamically packaging" agent who will provide flights purchased from another operator and accommodation as agent for a bed-bank without any personal experience or contact with it.
Means the money you have paid for your whole package is protected from the moment you book and you will be repatriated in the unlikely event of Olympic Holidays becoming insolvent while you are overseas.
Check that everything you have booked is included, but subject to this you get the same protection for all items that are covered by ATOL Certificate.
You traditional tour operator accepts direct responsibility for the package elements of flight, accommodation etc. If anything goes wrong, you will only have to deal with the tour operator in th UK.
"Dynamic packaging" agents do not accept responsibility for any part of the package they have sold. If anything goes wrong, you will have to eal with each individual supplier often based overseas.
Means your tour operator carries full public liability insurance. This means that in the unlikely event of your injury or illness because of our supplier's fault, you will be assured of being able to recover compensation by dealing only with us/our insurers.
"Dynamic packaging" agents do not carry public liability insurance at all. Again, in the unlikely event of your injury or illness because of the supplier's fault, you will be unlikely to get any compensation from the agent and will have to deal with a supplier probably based overseas.
