Sunvil is a fully bonded tour operator.
We are licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority (Sunvil ATOL 808, Latin America ATOL 9280 and the Greek Islands Club ATOL 848) and all holidays in this website conform with the bonding requirements of the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA V6218/Y1595/Y1612/ Y1608) and the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO). Complete financial protection is thus assured.
We have been operating holidays since 1970 and for several years before then as ‘Cyprus Property Tours’, a long time for an independent company in this business!
We are both retail and tour operating members of ABTA and AGTA (Association of Greek – Cypriot Travel Agents), licensed by IATA, have a busy commercial department for business travellers and also a groups department.
