Money Box Live: Holiday money & travel rights

Yellow boat on ocean
BBC Radio 4's Money Box Live
Wednesday, 11 May 2011 at 1502 BST On Radio 4 and Online

Whether you are planning a peaceful summer break or a round the world trek you may need tips and advice.

If you are curious about destinations, spending, insurance or avoiding holiday scams, our panel of guests will be ready to help.

Should you take cash, travellers cheques, pre-paid cards or your usual debit or credit cards?

What are your rights if your holiday is cancelled, your luggage lost or your flight delayed?

Is your holiday protected if you book your own travel and accommodation?

What is ATOL protection and when does it apply?

Or perhaps you want to ask about travel insurance or need a specialist policy?
