Why we use it and additional information
Essential cookies, as their name suggests, are vital to the proper functioning of the website. They enable us to remember your selections between pages, such as routes, dates and the number of travellers, meaning we can pass that information onto our booking partners without you ever having to re-enter it.
Optimisation cookies allow us to see and track anonymous use data such as click trends, so we can be certain the site offers you a consistently smooth, functional and pleasant experience.
We use third party service providers to assist us with optimisation. One such provider is Optimizely; for more information on what sort of information is stored by these cookies, please follow this link.
