We continue to provide full financial protection for our package holidays. As a holder of both an Air Tour Operator's Licence (ATOL) for flight-inclusive packages and ABTA bond for non-flight packages, you can rest assured that your money is financially protected when you book with Minorca Sailing.
Our package prices no longer include a flight as standard. In the future, we will be offering a service of arranging your flights as an addition to your package, if you wish. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering non-flight package holidays only for 2021. This is due to the regulations and policies of most airlines that make it easier for the individual to alter, amend and reschedule flights if the need arises, offering maximum flexibility.
We will continue to offer advice on the best flight options to Minorca and can arrange private transfers once you have booked your own flights.

How to Book
Telephone us on 020 8948 2106 and our staff and directors who regularly visit our sailing centre will advise you on availability and any other aspects of the holiday. Our office hours are 9am to 5.30pm Monday - Friday. We will normally hold your telephone reservation for 24 hours pending the arrival of your deposit of £325 per person. If you cancel the booking you forfeit the deposit. If you book within 10 weeks of departure you must send the whole holiday cost to us at the time of booking.
Once your deposit (or full payment if booking within 10 weeks before departure) is received by us, we will email you your booking confirmation and account along with holiday notes and, if we have arranged your flight, your ATOL Certificate.
We will email you your final account 12 weeks before departure. The full cost of the holiday is due 10 weeks before departure. Payment may be made by bank transfer, debit or credit card, or cheque.
If we have arranged your flight your travel documents will be emailed to you not less than 10 days before departure.
If you need to alter your arrangements after we have sent the confirmation of your booking, there will be an alteration charge of £35 per person for each alteration, and any further cost we incur in making this alteration. These costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made.
Passports & Visas for UK Citizens
Passports from 1 January 2021
From 1 January 2021, you must have at least 6 months left on an adult or child passport to travel to Spain.
If you renewed your current passport before the previous one expired, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the 6 months needed.
For security reasons airlines are required to provide passenger passport details to the government Border Control and Security authorities before they travel. This is known as Advance Passenger Information (API). Failure to provide this information may result in delays at both UK departure airports and arrival airports and could result in denied boarding or entry. This information must be provided for all passengers travelling, including children and infants.
If Minorca Sailing has arranged your flight we will require your passport details no later than 2 weeks before departure.
The Spanish Authorities also require full passport details for anyone staying in a hotel or tourist self-catering accommodation, and so you will also be required to give this information on arrival to our staff in Minorca.
Visas from 1 January 2021
You will be able to travel to Spain for up to 90 days in any 180-day period without a visa as a tourist.
