Making a Payment

Making a payment towards your holiday is easy and can be done in a number of ways. To do so, it's best that you have your Booking Confirmation to hand.


The fastest way to make a payment is online by clicking here. You'll need your booking confirmation to hand and remember we don't charge you any fees to use your Credit Card!

In Store:

You can call in to any store to make a payment towards your booking. You don't have to go to the store that you originally booked in to make your payment.

By Phone:

When paying by phone, it's best to call the store you booked in. If your Booking Reference begins 6200 please call the Blackpool store on 01253 530333, if it begins 6500 please call the St Annes store on 01253 531222.

By Post:

For postal payments, we can only accept Bank or Building Society Cheques. Please make these payable to "The Midcounties Co-operative" and on the back of your cheque clearly write your Booking Reference, Surname and Destination of Travel. Please post your Cheque to: Operations Department, World Travel Lounge, 11 Birley Street, Blackpool, FY1 1EG

Payment Methods:

Debit & Credit Card | We accept Visa Debit, Visa Credit, Visa Electron, MasterCard Debit, MasterCard Credit and Maestro Cards either in store or by telephone. There is no charge for payments by Debit or Credit Card.
Charge Card | We accept American Express charge cards either in store or by telephone. When using a Charge Card to make payment, there is a charge of 2% of the total value of the payment. This applies to any payments made towards a booking.
Cheque | Cheques can be either posted or used in store. These should be made payable to "The Midcounties Co-operative" and on the back of your cheque clearly write your Booking Reference, Surname and Destination of Travel.

When is my balance due?

This depends on the type of booking made. If you've booked a traditional package holiday (eg: Thomas Cook or Jet2 Holidays) your balance will be due 14 weeks prior to your departure.

If you've booked a package we've put together for you (Dynamic Package) and your Tour Operator is listed as 'MIDCOUNTIES CO-OPERATIVE' on your booking confirmation then your balance is due just 6 weeks prior to your departure.

Not sure? Just give us a call on 01253 532000 and we'll be happy to help!

If you are unable to make your payment by the date shown, please contact us as soon as possible. Late payments may incur a charge of £30 and can result in the cancellation of your holiday if the balance is not paid by the specified dates.
