*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
The unique islands of Cape Verde continue to blossom in the minds of travellers as some of the best year-round beach destinations on the planet. Take holidays to Sal island to find out why Cape Verde is known as the ‘European Caribbean’.
Could it be the white-as-sugar sands? Perhaps it's the aquamarine waters? Maybe it's because attitudes in Sal are so totally chilled...
Whatever it is, more and more holidaymakers are discovering the charms of this Atlantic Ocean beauty - so you would be wise to find Sal island holidays now to stake your place on the near-empty beaches and within the turquoise waters that gently ebb and flow from the stunning shoreline.
Cape Verde is a little over 1,000 miles south of the sun-kissed Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa. Despite the distance, the Spanish holiday isles share many similarities with Cape Verde in terms of climate, landscape and, of course, the volcanic origin of the islands. But while the Canaries have been basking in the surge of mass tourism for decades, Cape Verde has remained on the edge of the holiday radar.
