If you are travelling on one of our charter flights to Bulgaria from 17th May onwars, there's nothing you need to do as we are still planning on operating as scheduled. We are closely monitoring the Government Guidelines and we expect to know more after 12th April.

➤ I would like to cancel my holiday now, what are my options?
If you would like to cancel your holiday now, our advice would be to either be patient and wait for the official information or email our reservations on firstname.lastname@example.org and look at the options for later in the Summer 2021 season or alternatively Summer 2022. If you do decide to cancel by your own choice then this would be at charges stipulated in our terms.
