What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are automatically placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit almost any website. They are stored by your Internet browser. Cookies contain basic information about your Internet use, but they do not normally identify you personally. Your browser sends these cookies back to the site every time you revisit it, so it can recognise your computer or mobile device and personalize and improve your site experience.
Also the website works with third party advertisers to give you access to interesting and exciting travel content through the browsing experience. So, as well as setting some cookies ourselves – “first party cookies”, I also allow some advertisers who display advertisements on the webssite to set cookies, known as “third party cookies”. These cookies record information about your use of advertisements. This helps advertisers to show you advertisements that are more likely to interest you, limit the number of times you may see an advertisement and also to help to improve your online experience.
