Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Booking Form

When you make a booking, we need to know your name, address, and phone number, email address and journey details. This allows us to process and fulfil your booking. You have the option to withhold personal information that is not required for the booking process.

The personal information we collect from you may include the following: Name, address, email address, telephone numbers, Flight details and bank account details (for payment of invoices) and any additional information you provide to us in relation to specific services you request from us.
