It is your responsibility to ensure that any health requirements are met and that you take advice from your GP or local Health Centre regarding any health issues in relation to the country you are visiting or your and your children’s health.

If you or your children have any health issues, you should advise us of these at the time of booking and ensure that you take any medicines you may need while you are away.

We recommend everyone takes adequate sun protection, after-sun lotion, sunglasses, sunhats, antiseptic wipes, plasters, Paracetemol, antihistamine tablets and cream.

Airport Parking with or without an overnight stay

If you require parking and/or an overnight stay before your flight, Mango holidays have teamed up with Holiday Extras, a company that offers very competitive prices for both. It is often just as cheap or cheaper to book a hotel with parking than just parking.
