Total peace of mind

We are the UK agent for TACV – Cabo Verde Airlines and other carriers. The air holiday packages and/or flights shown are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is ATOL 3639. Please see our booking conditions for more information. The price of our air package holidays includes the amount of £2.50 per person as part of the ATOL Protection Contribution (APC) we pay to the CAA. This charge is included in our advertised prices. ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services in the brochure.

Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. All our holidays are bonded, as above, through the CAA and we work towards a code of conduct. We can only be responsible for the arrangements made with us. We accept no responsibility for any segments not booked through us. When booking internal flights only through us, please be aware that there may be flight changes and the airline, along with Cape Verde Travel, hold no responsibility for missed departure of international flights.

Know before you go

The Cape Verde Archipelago is a developing nation and new to tourism. The islands are still in their embryonic stages although continually developing. Travelers are advised to have studied a reputable travel guide before their holiday.

The majority of our customers are experienced travelers. Transfers can be pre-arranged from each of the islands’ airports. It is also relatively simple to obtain an alugar or taxi available at all airports.

Island tours can be pre-arranged. All vehicles and personnel have been assessed for reliability and safety. Any services arranged by yourselves through a hotel, or non-contracted organisations, are at your own risk, and the organisations’ own insurance. We will not accept responsibility for these separate arrangements.

Re-confirming flights

Cape Verde Airlines can re-schedule flights at a moments notice, due to operational reasons and island life!  It is therefore very important that you reconfirm all internal flights with TACV 48 hours before departure. You can do this in person at the local TACV offices on the islands or call the numbers supplied in your ticket pack. Alternatively, you can ask the hotel reception to re-confirm them for you.
