We offer a huge range of currencies, available for purchase in our travel branches. We always recommend that you buy your currency or travellers cheques in plenty of time as stocks can be low during peak seasons. It's a good idea to monitor exchange rates and buy when the rates are at their best, but don't leave it too late! Use our branch finder to find your nearest Your Co-op Travel branch where you'll find great rates on all currencies.
We would recommend that you take out suit travel insurance for yourself and anyone travelling with you - including infants and children. We can't accept responsibility for any loss that you or anyone travelling on your booking suffers if the individual isn't adequately insured. With all insurance policies, terms and conditions apply, so you need to make sure you've got the right policy for you. We recommend using Co-op Insurance, check with your travel advisor to ensure that the policy meets your needs.
At a minimum, your travel insurance should be 'comprehensive', providing cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability. Please visit Co-op Insurance.
Here's a guide to each of the board basis options we can offer and what they mean:
The majority of package travel arrangements provided by ABTA Members are protected by either the CAA's ATOL scheme or by the ABTA Bond of the Member company.
Both the ATOL and ABTA schemes protect a refund that was due for a holiday that has not taken place if a travel company fails. You can check this for yourself on the ATOL Air Travel Trust Payment Policy, section 4.2 on page 28. ABTA is an independent organisation, recognised by the UK Department for Business (BEIS) as an Approved Body under the 2018 Package Travel Regulations. Some of our Members provide bonds through one of the other two Approved Bodies – ABTOT or the CPT Bonded Coach Holidays schemes. ABTA accepts the use of both of these schemes for our Members. Some Members also use financial failure insurance products rather than Bonds. These are also permitted under the 2018 Package Travel Regulations. ABTA checks that all these are in place and monitors them, so that customers do not have to do so when booking with an ABTA Member. Further information on the ATOL scheme can be found on the Civil Aviation Authority website.
When you're booking your holiday with us at Your Co-op Travel, we can arrange holiday car rental at the same time. We wouldn't recommend leaving it to chance by trying to rent cars once you get there. Whenever you search for a holiday with us, we will automatically search a huge range of car hire providers to find the best prices for your chosen destination. You can then simply add your choice of hire car to your booking.
