Drive-Alive Holidays Ltd - Privacy Statement

The Drive-Alive website is a portal featuring information about all aspects of motoring in Europe and providing information about and booking links to the many companies involved in planning and booking a motoring trip in Europe. No bookings are made directly with Drive-Alive. All bookings and payments are made to the company providing the service or product concerned.

All bookings are made directly with our ferry, hotel, self-catering, insurance and car hire partners, as well as any other products and services featured on the Drive-Alive websites. We advise you to check the privacy statements on their websites. However, we take great care to ensure that we only deal with partners whom we believe to be adhering to the strictest standards of privacy protection.

We remain committed to protecting your privacy. Any information we do collect about you, for example your email address, will only be collected lawfully and with your permission (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998).

If you sign up to our email newsletter we will give you the chance to refuse email from us in the future. We do not send marketing emails to non-customer, personal email addresses ('spam').

  • We abide by the best practice codes of the DMA's Direct Marketing Code of Practice and the British Code of Advertising, Sales Promotion and Direct Marketing.
  • We will not sell or pass on your email address to any other organisation, and will only use it for the express purpose of sending our newsletter.
  • We will always include a link to unsubscribe from future email newsletters.
  • We ensure that you are the correct owner of the email address by requesting you to verify the address provided.

Any personal information you do supply will have been provided by you voluntarily and will not be given or sold to any third party except for the express and sole purpose of effecting a booking or securing a service offered through the Drive-Alive website or the websites of its partners.
