    How we use cookies

    A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

    We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

    Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

    The following are the cookies currently running on our website:

    • Magento Checkout - we use an eCommerce system called Magento to sell visas, transfers and other services from this website. To add something to the basket and then to use the checkout, it needs to record your actions on the website. It allows you to come back to the site on the same browser from the same computer to buy something if you've added it to the basket. WIthout it we couldn't run the online purchase part of the site.

    • Google Analytics – this logs the time that you’re on our site and what you look at and we use it so we can make our site better, including adding more relevant content and making it easier to use. It’s there for you as much as we use it for ourselves.

    • YouTube.com – this is used to show YouTube videos and track where a video has been played. If this cookie can’t run, there’s no way to watch videos about Travel Direct products or services on our website.

    You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

    What about the EU Cookie Law and Travel Direct?

    As we’re not using any third party cookies to serve up behavioural ads that would take you elsewhere, we don’t believe we should be showing a pop up to ask if you accept our use of cookies.
