Our sites use a number of different cookies. Please read on for an explanation of the cookies that we use and why we use them.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that may be placed on your device when you visit our sites. When you next visit our sites, the cookie allows us to distinguish you from other users.
Persistent cookies: Persistent cookies remain on your device until deleted manually or automatically. Session cookies Session cookies remain on your device until you close your browser when they are automatically deleted. Cookies we use and why we use them.
Essential cookies: Essential cookies are technical cookies that are required for the operation of our sites. Without essential cookies our sites can't operate properly and your on-line experience will be greatly diminished. Some or all of our website may not work at all. Essential cookies include, for example, cookies that enable you to save information in the quotation stage when using this site.
Performance cookies: Performance cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to our sites and to see how visitors move around them. This is important information as it helps us to improve the way our sites work by enabling us to tailor our sites to the way visitors use them. The information we collect from performance cookies is gathered as a "group statistic" e.g. 40,000 people viewed the accommodation page in April, rather than Mr Smith viewed the accommodation page in April. In short, we cannot identify you from performance cookies.
Experience cookies: Experience cookies allow our sites to remember the choices you make. Our sites use experience cookies to provide you with enhanced and personalised features. For example, we use information collected through what are known as "web-analytic" cookies to compare the choices you make to those of our other customers so that we can learn from those choices and thus make the web experience more relevant in the future. Information collected by experience cookies cannot track your browsing activity when you leave our sites to browse other sites so we will not be able to ascertain what other sites you are looking at.
Marketing cookies: Marketing cookies record your visits to our sites, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We use this information to make our sites and the features and links displayed on them more relevant to visitor demand.
