Coronavirus: a message to our customers
If you are due to travel shortly, we will be in touch to support and guide you in either postponing or cancelling your holiday, based on current Foreign Office advice and your insurance arrangements.
To ensure you can still enjoy a holiday this year, we have launched a new travel agency Auriel Holidays – to offer a range of holidays in the UK and Europe. Working with long-established specialist tour operators, who know their destinations intimately, we can suggest the best way to explore these incredibly varied destinations, whether you’re looking to do a road trip, fly/drive, travel by rail, island hop or have a privately guided holiday. All our holidays can be tailor made to your needs.
After a few months of hibernation, we are more than ready to start dreaming again!

Warm regards

2by2 Holidays - Creating unforgettable experiences
Travel has always been a huge part of my life and it was my passion to share my experiences which led me to establish 2by2 Holidays over 15 years ago.
Since then our team has grown and we have expanded our holidays from the remarkable wildlife and cultures of Africa to the iconic sights of Latin America and the tigers and temples of India, But our values and ethos remain unchanged - to give you the most wonderful experience possible in a region of the world you never thought you would visit.
Our company name comes from the ancient legend of Noah's Ark, where all the animals of the world went into his giant boat 'two by two' to survive the great flood - and wildlife and conservation remain as precious and thrilling to us today.
My enthusiasm burns as brightly as ever and I'm involved in every aspect of the business, backed up by our superb travel team. Our love for travel has certainly rubbed off on our customers, with over a third returning year after year to explore a different country or revisit an old favourite. Whatever your passion and however complex your needs, our thoughtful approach and attention to detail will ensure your holiday is just right for you.
As a result of our commitment to customer service, we are proud to have won the South African Tourism 'Ubuntu Award' and been a finalist in the Federation of Small Business 'Excellence in Customer Service' award.
Our latest initiative has been growing Auriel Holidays to bring you more tailor made experiences closer to home, both in the United Kingdom and across Europe.
I do hope our websites inspires you to start planning your next trip! We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Our Values
We strongly believe that travel should be a force for good, providing a crucial source of revenue for local communities. We want you to experience the very best holiday, but at the same time we wish to contribute something back to these communities wherever we can.
The national parks, reserves and wildlife sanctuaries that are included in our itineraries directly benefit from tourism and in many cases your income is vital to their survival. Many of the lodges we work with across Africa, Latin America and India support local projects such as childcare facilities, schools and health clinics, further improving local conditions.
We encourage you too to make a difference through Pack For a Purpose.

Our Financial Protection
Tour Operators in Africa
All our holidays are fully financially protected under one of the following schemes:
ATOL Bookings (i.e. where we book some or all of your flights):
Customers living in the UK or Europe who book holidays that include at least one flight are protected by way of our Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (ATOL) - number 9025 - a financial protection scheme run by the UK Civil Aviation Authority. If a travel firm or airline fails, the value of your entire holiday is covered, including flights and all ground arrangements. This includes repatriation if required.
ATOL will not protect you if you book all your own flights direct with an airline. It also does not apply to residents of the USA and other non-European countries.
When you buy an ATOL protected product from us you will receive an ATOL Certificate. This lists what is financially protected, where you can get information on what this means for you and who to contact if things go wrong.
For further information visit the Civil Aviation Authority's website at www.caa.co.uk/atol-protection.
Non-ATOL Bookings (i.e. all other holidays):
Holidays that do not meet the above criteria are protected through our Tour Operator Insurance scheme, known as Travel Vault, which is administered by Towergate Travel through Zurich Insurance PLC.
In accordance with the Package Travel & Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018, all non-ATOL passengers booking with 2by2 Holidays Ltd are fully insured for their initial deposit, and subsequently the balance of monies paid as detailed in your booking confirmation form. The policy includes repatriation if required, arising from the cancellation or curtailment of your travel arrangements due to the insolvency of 2bu2 Holidays.
In the unlikely event of our insolvency, you must immediately contact Towergate Travel on +44 (0)1932 334140 or by email at tcs@towergate.co.uk. Please ensure you retain your booking confirmation form as evidence of cover and value.
Policy exclusion: This policy will not cover any monies paid for Travel Insurance.
