Opening hours update
After Sales phone lines temporarily closed
Due to continuous volumes of amendments to bookings, our After Sales and Ticketing departments will keep their phone lines closed until further notice. We strive to continue the same high level of service, which is only possible at present if we manage our requests through email, so that we can ensure time is dedicated to resolving each customer’s booking successfully.
Our destination specialist teams are fully operational and are open from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, so please get in touch on our reservations number, 0141 955 4000 from the UK, or 01 447 5275 from Ireland.
Temporary change to opening hours
We want to ensure that we maintain the highest levels of service, and continue to work through the unprecedented volumes of amendments and queries as efficiently as possible. Subsequently, from 29 April 2020, we will be amending our opening hours slightly. We will remain closed on a Saturday, and our team of experts within the contact centre will now be available from 10am until 4pm from Monday through to Friday. This will allow our team to respond to the unparalleled levels of email queries and amendments coming through, as well as dedicating time to answer your calls and enquiries. These new hours will remain in place until such time as it is safe for us to return to If Only HQ.
Our teams continue to work tirelessly, processing an unprecedented number of booking amendments, as well as repatriating the last few of our mutual customers back to the UK and Ireland. We are all so grateful to you, our agent partners for encouraging your customers to either amend or accept a refund credit note helping to protect our industry and all of our long term futures.
If you have a query outwith these hours, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will pick up your enquiry when our offices open.
We thank you for your patience and understanding and endeavour to adapt our strategies to best support you and your customers through this challenging time.

Job Retention Scheme

Our destination experts will still be on hand to assist with all of your customer queries, amendments and new bookings, with staff still present in each department.
