Privacy policy
STA Travel protects the privacy of all our travellers whether you visit one of our branches or our Internet site. We have developed a privacy policy to inform you what information we may collect from you, what this information will be used for, with whom such information will be shared and the security procedures we have implemented to protect your privacy.
What information we collect

We will collect personal information that is relevant to your travel arrangements. This includes providing necessary information to airlines, tour companies, car hire agencies, hotels or insurance providers to fulfill your travel arrangements. By making a booking, you consent to STA Travel using any personal information for the purpose of making and completing travel arrangements on your behalf.

Promotions that run on our site may be sponsored by companies other than STA Travel, or may be co-sponsored. Some or all data collected during a promotion may be shared with the co-sponsor(s). If data collected is to be shared, you will be notified prior to the time of data collection or transfer. You can decide not to participate in the promotion if you don't want your data to be shared.

When completing an on line job application for a Branch Sales Manager or Travel Adviser, it requires you to complete mandatory fields and provide personal information. STA Travel recognises that the personal information related to your application is highly personal and sensitive. The information will be only used for this purpose. STA Travel may pass your application onto a thirdparty Recruitment Company for initial interviewing. Applications are kept on file for a period of six months.

When you visit the STA Travel website, we may collect and store information about your visit on an anonymous, aggregate basis. This information may include the time and length of your visit, the pages you looked at on our site and the site you visited just before coming to ours. We may also record the name of your Internet service provider. We only use this information only to measure site activity and to develop ideas for improving our site.

We may also disclose your information when we believe the law requires it.

Opt in and opt Out

STA Travel puts the control over communication directly into your hands, where it belongs. We only send our latest breaking "goss" emails to you, if you ask to receive them.

We won't pester you with junk mail - promise! But if you'd like to be the first to find out about deals, then you will be required to complete an online registration form to join our Mile High Club. Your email address will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and it will not be added to a mailing list or used for any other purpose without your consent. We have provided you access to alteration and correction facilities so that you may change any of your details should they change.

We hate spam too. If you want to stop receiving our "special" emails, you can click on the Unsubscribe link in the email you've been sent and you'll automatically be removed from the mailing list.
