Our Website & Apps act as a price comparison tool only

Our Website & Apps provide you with comparisons for different travel products only. We do not control any of the products being offered – these are all controlled by third parties such as airlines, hotels & tour operators.

Our Website & Apps do not process any bookings, enquiries, orders or payment transactions and all of these are looked after by the relevant Third Party Website that you are referred to.

For flights & hotels, our Website & Apps display results that are provided to us by Third Party Websites that work with us only. The highlighted best price shown in results is based on the lowest price available across all of the available deals, correct at the time of search and is subject to change at any time. This price is based on the best available rate from the Third Party Websites listed only, and may not be the cheapest rate available online through all websites as we only work with selected Third Party Websites. We do not have control over which deals are displayed as these are controlled by Go Travel Un Limited as per their additional terms below.

Information gathered from Third Party Websites

When you search for a travel product (flights, hotels, etc), we will show you the best prices that we have available at the time of your search. These results will also inform you of the name of the Third Party Website that you will be referred to in order to complete your booking.

The information sourced including flight schedules, ratings, photos, maps & general information are provided to us by Third Party Websites. Whilst we do take reasonable care to ensure that this information is correct and up to date, we do not accept any responsibility for information provided to us by Third Party websites which may be incorrect, inaccurate or incomplete. We do not control the content displayed for products and do not guarantee that a particular product or service is available. We recommend checking these details with the relevant Third Party Website once you have been referred to ensure that these details are correct. If your query is about a service on a flight or at a hotel, we also recommend checking the service’s availability direct with the Operator prior to booking.


The prices displayed on our Website & Apps are current as at the time of your search and are subject to availability & change at any time. We recommend checking with the relevant Third Party Website before finalising your booking to ensure that the price is still available. All prices are provided to us by Third Party Websites and we accept no responsibility for prices that may be incorrect when booking.

We work with a wide selection of Third Party Websites and compare prices between them to show you the best prices available through us when searching for travel products on our Website & Apps. Whilst we strive to get you the best prices available, the lowest prices shown only include results from the Third Party Websites that we work with and not necessarily the lowest prices available anywhere.

The Third Party Website that you are referred to may also charge extra fees that are not included in the price shown on our Website & Apps. This includes but is not limited to service fees, booking fees & payment processing fees. Please check the price shown on the relevant Third Party Website for more information.

For bookings in a different currency, we recommend checking that the currency on the Third Party Website is the same before proceeding with your booking. Some Third Party Websites may charge you in a different currency (according to their booking terms) and your payment provider may charge you a conversion fee.
