With our permission, cookies from other companies may be placed on our websites and mobile apps. For example, we use cookies to do the following:

Improve the way our websites and mobile apps work
Cookies allow us to evaluate and improve the way our websites and mobile apps work so that we can personalise your experience and enable you to enjoy many of the useful features. For example, cookies help us keep track of which page you are visiting as you move through each stage of the booking process; they help us remember your preferences such as, for example, your last searches or listed vacation days and the contents of your online shopping cart.

Improve the performance of our websites and mobile apps
Cookies can help us to understand how our websites and mobile apps are used, for example, by telling us if you get any error messages when using the page, so that we can then test various designs of our website and mobile apps. Website analytics, including Google Analytics, provide information about the number of visitors to our website and mobile apps, which areas of our website and mobile apps are particularly popular, and whether there are trends such as, for example, a particular page is mostly viewed by people in a particular country. These cookies ultimately help us improve your visit to our website.

Provide relevant online advertising
We use cookies to provide online advertising that we believe to be of particular interest to you when visiting our websites, mobile apps and other websites. For example, these cookies help us suggest flights from your nearest airport, a vacation to a destination you are interested in, or propose products that you may like.

These cookies may collect information about your online behaviour, such as, for example, your IP address, the website from which you came to ours, as well as information about your order history or the contents of your shopping cart.

This means that you can see our advertising on our websites, mobile apps and websites of other companies. You can also see ads for other companies on our websites and mobile apps.

To help us provide online advertising that is really relevant to you we also link data we collect through cookies in your browser to other data we collect.

Measure the effectiveness of our marketing communications including online advertising
Cookies can tell us if you have seen a specific advertisement and how long ago that was. This information enables us to measure the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns and check how many times an ad has been shown to you. This prevents us from constantly displaying the same advertisement. We also use cookies to measure the effectiveness of our marketing communications, such as whether you opened a marketing e-mail we sent you.
